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???

…oh please…his acting is honestly so marginal – I’m not saying he’s awful by any means but the show will go on….

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.

4ever DAYS

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.

REALLY? oh wow! I never heard anything negative about him when he was playing Starvros on GH. he has also had appeal to me as an actor!

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 …..

I wish he would come back to Days of Our Lives as Bo, and stay as long as the show is around!!!
