One of daytime’s all time favorite heroes and leading men, Peter Reckell (Ex-Bo Brady, Days of our Lives) addressed on Monday his silence on social media. Reckell returned for DAYS 50th anniversary to wrap up Bo’s story, where the character was eventually killed-off in heartbreaking scenes.

Peter who has been busy raising his daughter, Loden, along with wife singer/songwriter Kelly Moneymaker has been living in Nashville. Last year, he appeared in an off-Broadway revival of The Fantasticks.

In a message to his devoted fan base via Twitter, Peter wrote: “Hi, sorry I’ve been away! I guess me the Dad, doesn’t have much room 4 me the actor,and Twitter is part of,me the actor. Been great 2 have family. My priority 4 many years was acting, and I’m very thankful, and feel very fortunate!

I’ve been given another amazing gift, a beautiful family. When I do something it’s all the way, sorry if you feel neglected.  I don’t want my daughter to ever say “Daddy get off the phone, let’s play! Thank you 4 your understanding and, continued support. You’ve been amazing for so many years!  Sorry these last few months I’ve been absent.

I can’t say I’ll be tweeting much. But I will let you know if Peter the actor shows up again. He’s not gone 4 good, I promise! With gratitude.”

So, happy to hear from Peter?  Would you like to see him appear on daytime again? Comment below!

Why does he always leave it hanging? It’s always “you will see me again” or “I’ll be back” . He goes on and on about wanting to be with his family and hope everyone understands etc. Why not leave it at that?

Because it’s a smart PR move. If you’re out of the spotlight for a certain amount of time it’s too easy to be replaced by other actors. Checking in every now and then and maintaining a dialogue with his fans keeps his name and popularity out there. Nothing wrong with that. Everyone’s gotta do what they have to do to stay relevant.

Cause maybe some of his fans actually care about Peter, the person, and appreciate him letting us know all is well occasionally. Really criticizing him for merely acknowledging many of his fans may have been concerned or are interested in how he is doing and responding???? Frankly I appreciate the occasional, “all is well, thanks for caring”. It’s called being human.

Totally agree! Is it me, or does he always come off as being full of himself? We totally understand that family comes first.

Agreed. I was never a fan of Bo Brady. I preferred Robert Kelker-Kelly myself, when paired with Lisa Rinna. I always thought Peter portrayed Bo as a keystone cop with an overly inflated ego.

dmr…EXACTLY!!!!! Oh…and BTW, to me, Robert Kelker-Kelly is a WAY BETTER ACTOR than Peter Reckell!!!!!

Just saying……….

Yes, I know the cast is large, but Peter would make a great Jeff Webber recast. Elizabeth and Hayden need guidance. He could be the mystery man Monica mentioned last week.

And if it gives Leslie Charleson something to do, I’m all for it. I’ve always said any day that has Monica in scenes on GH is a good day!!! Peter would be good for GH.

I just don’t see the appeal or need for Hayden. The actress and the character is included in all of these storylines and paired up with legacy characters to give her purpose, and I just don’t feel as though it is working. It would be great if the Quartermaine family was not decimated years ago and if the legacy characters that have been brought back (Lucy, Scott, Felicia, Mac, etc.) were given an actual storyline or seen more often.

Were people actually missing him from Twitter or was he starting to feel neglected that everyone forgot @ him? I mean, I’m a huge BO fan but I don’t think anyone is dying on Twitter not hearing from him.

Love him as Bo. Fantastic chemistry with Kristian Alfonso. Miss Bo and Fancy Face.

As a huge Bo and Hope fan, I could care less now. If you want to be with your family – that is great. I was truly happy that he came back and closed it out. Happy for his life etc. but he is kinda of a user – tweets when he wants his fans to see his Broadway show or buy his wife’s music etc. Jesus, dude get over yourself. Your fans don’t need your tweets telling them repeatedly how important your family is. We get it. Drop off twitter and be done.

There’s not a celebrity…actor, singer, writer, etc who doesn’t use Twitter, Facebook or even this site for anything other than publicity. That includes talk shows, etc. So…is he a “user?” LOL…they ALL are! They ask for money to fund their independent projects, attend their conventions, etc. It’s pretty obvious…no???

Is it me or is he saying the same thing OVER AND OVER? WE GET IT. You werent exactly winning Emmys with your portrayal, we will survive. Personally, they shouldve just recasted him again with RKK.

That’s not going to happen, Richard, because it was said that RKK took the “hands on” approach literally. They must’ve been a busy pair of hands because a few DAYS actresses “felt” his departure was long overdue. Ironically, he and his wife met at DAYS.

Is it possible for fans to see Days from the beginning (archives) at some time in the near future? I am 81 and remember so many who are no longer on the radar. There used to be a soap opera digest …..

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
