Saturday is World Cancer Day, and on this day when all of us can join forces to make a difference in the battle against this disease, but two soap stars shared some personal news and messages that will mean so much to their colleagues and their legions of fans.

First, the beloved Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair, OLTL and Eve, DAYS) took to Twitter to share some wonderful news: “Today is #WorldCancerDay and I’m grateful I can say I am cancer free. To all of you who battle cancer…fight on! Trust the journey!”  DePaiva had revealed back in August 2016  on her website that she has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Second, Kristen Alderson, (who played Kassie’s daughter Starr Manning on OLT:, before moving over to GH to eventually become the role of Kiki) shared how proud she was of her brother Eddie Alderson (Ex-Matthew, OLTL) who has been undergoing chemo for Hodgkins Lymphoma via her Instagram account.

On World Cancer Day Kristen expressed: “On November 11th my family and I heard the word no one ever wants to hear. I always had great compassion when I heard that someone was suffering with Cancer, but you truly don’t know the feeling until it hits you or your family. Being with my brother @eddiealderson every step through his journey has been and continues to be the biggest honor. I have learned sooo much. It has been the most terrifying, yet insanely inspiring experience we’ve ever faced. My prayers, love, sympathy, amazement, and awe goes out to anyone that has or has ever had cancer or has a loved one with cancer. We are all in this together.”

Please send your well-wishes to Kassie, and Kristen and Eddie in the comment section below!

Cassie you’ve always been one of my favorites. I am so happy for that you have been able to work your way back to good health. On a personal note you good news means even more to me today. I have been out of commission with some rare, exotic ailment that just popped up a couple of weeks ago. It been emergency to a current hospital stay. Having no tv or iPad (until) yesterday to hear the news let me think a lot. Only thing I want to say on this story (and I’m sure Cassie and Kristin would agree),… Read more »

I am so thankful that Kassie is cancer free. I was surprised to read about Eddie, he is so young. I was 35 when I had kidney cancer and I remember nurses, etc. saying that same thing to me, that I was so young. I guess it is good to remember that cancer can hit you at any age. What a wonderful sister you are, Kristen to your brother! Miss seeing all of you! Am still upset every time I see “The Talk” come on ABC at 2:00 p.m. I just have to turn the tv off! God Bless you… Read more »

My ten year anniversary of being cancer free is less than a month away. I think it was harder on my family then it was on me.

To all who are healing and their families and loved ones, I wish you a speedy and full recovery.

Dear Eddie, Kristen. Eddie I know that you can beat this awful disease. I say that only because I’ve had two different kinds of cancer and with the grace of God I’m hear on this side of the grass. You are many yrs younger than me. I will pray for you . God Bless and i’d love to hear about your progress.

Well wishes are not enough for me. I am going to pray. Dear Lord Jesus we come before your courts with thanksgiving and praise. We lift up Eddie Alderson to you today. We know that your word says the very hairs on his head are numbered and known by you. We also know that you have known him before the foundation of the world. His cancer diagnosis was a shock to him and his family. But you know all things and you made a provision for him and the healing of his mortal physical body by the stripes beaten on… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
