Peter Reckell Clarifies Tweet To Fans: "Sorry If I Got Your Hopes Up Re DAYS. When I Said There's Movement, It's For Something Else"

Over the past few days, we have reported that popular former Days of our Lives star Peter Reckell took to Twitter and said out at tweet that his legions of fans believed or inferred that was related to the possibility for him finally returning to the NBC soap opera in the role of Bo Brady, either to wrap up his love story with Hope (Kristian Alfonso), or to make some kind of deal for a longer visit.

However, Reckell now took to his Twitter account to clarify that a return to Salem was not what he was talking about!  Peter now tweeted: “Sorry if I got your hopes up re Days. When I said there’s movement, its for something else. That Old saying about doors opening and closing;)”

Now the question is, what else could Reckell be talking about?  A new project? Going to another soap?

In addition, prior to that tweet, Reckell sent out a series of tweets as a statement that read:  “About a year and a half ago, DOOL called me and we tried 2 work out something. But we couldn’t come to an agreement. Money was NOT the issue. Weeks ago you filled me in on what was happening with Hope’s storyline. I called the show to see if it was time for Bo to make an appearance. With the connection Bo and Hope have always shared, I thought he could give her the OK to move on with her life, in a dream or something. But the writers have written far ahead, and my suggestions are a bit too late. Which makes sense, so nothing came of that conversation. You say Bo’s actions are out of character. That’s a writer’s way of foreshadowing something,in character, happening down the road.”

So, what do you think about Peter’s sentiments now?  Are you disappointed by the news that there is no movement on a return for Peter to DAYS?  Share your thoughts below!

Why dont he explain himself?…well, ive moved on to a Hope and Aiden pairing…no matter if its the fault of PR or TPTB, should Kristen A. just sit in the background and forget about Hope until if and when Bo returns or not…i say the actress and her character deserves better…so do us fans…drop Bo for good…Kristen/Hope need to move forward…end of story!!!

I agree with both of you. I’ve moved on, too. Of course an actor has a right to leave a show. Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Bo go sailing and Hope joined him for a while but cam back to Salem without him? And then later she found out from John of all folks that Bo is on a super-secret mission to bring Stefano down? It was so secret I guess that he couldn’t call. But he flew John there to announce it. Oy! Not great writing if that’s the case. He just needs to say nothing else… Read more »

But the difference is VR actually still works and juggles so many other gigs. So even as she whines, at least she still books job. On PR, it just comes across as Meh….

Maybe Peter should shut down his twitter account. He’s using twitter to hold people hostage…not nice!

Im enjoying the show without him…ive watched since it began in 1965 and ive seen the show loose far better and more interesting actors and actresses over the years…if he ever comes back or he never comes back no longer matters to me!!!

I’m also OK without PR. Hope and Aiden are interesting and will be in full swing of things when Melissa Archer’s character arrives.

I agree with 4ever Days and jimh-I think he wrote this knowing that it would obviously spark some controversary and interest. I, myself, began watching Days when RKK was cast as Bo-who I liked. I was never a fan of Peter’s Bo-always too cocky-why?-he never seemed to solve a case for the Salem PD! HA!

actors need to stay relevant, I’m sure that is his way to “not be forgotten” 😉

I gave up on Days awhile ago but I thought it was horrible how the show put K.Alfonso in limbo. I guess now that she has an actual storyline, viewers are enjoying it again and SHE deserves it! She stayed with the show and didn’t gripe about stuff like Peter did – so ….. time for Peter to just stop talking about it. I’ve always been a BO & HOPE fan but Peter has a tendency to talk too much!

Michelle

Peter can’t help it if people constantly jump to conclusions. His exit was handled very poorly. The character should have been killed off. It would have given Alfonso a storyline to sink her teeth into and allowed Hope to move on. Instead, Hope’s been in limbo and Bo looks like a douchebag for deserting his family. The nasty comments being directed at him by Hope fans on Twitter and forums are unwarranted. The man gave Days 30+ years and many viewers who were diehard Bo and Hope fans have now turned on him. Poor form. On the other hand, Alfonso… Read more »

I love Bo and Hope and I’ve been a big fan of Peter’s, but this Twitter drama is too much for too long. He did get fans’ hopes up, as he had intended, and now he has to deal with that. IMO, it’s bad form for any actor to tweet as he did before he had something concrete to announce, or really, before the show had something to announce, since it’s really not his place to steal the thunder from DOOL. And I know that Peter said it might not come to be anything, but at the same time, I… Read more »

I agree with what you say Beth!
I’m a fan of Bo & Hope and I wish Peter well .. but his Up & Down behavior on the show is annoying. They couldn’t just keep K.Alfonso in limbo until Peter was “ready” again.
I still think that the way they treated RKK when Peter was on his “I want to return” kick was horrible … I’m sure RKK would have stuck around for awhile and been pleased to be a part of the show.

I have to agree with you Mo. If this had been the first tweets to come out I would’ve given him the benefit of the doubt. But this has been going on for a long while now. What strikes me odd in his statement is that he said he found out LAST WEEK what was going on with Hope’s storyline and called to see if it was time for him to make an appearance to give her the ok the move on. Gosh that just sounds bad the way he worded it. But anyway, since he knows they film months… Read more »

I agree with the others who are over Bo/Peter. He doesn’t need to come back to tie up anything. I think the writers got rid of him just fine.
Moving on…

He’s becoming another Victoria Rowell with all the silly post character drama. He will continue to alienate himself with his fans and the show until they kill his character off camera and he is truly forgotten. KNOCK IT OFF PETER RECKELL.

That rumor has been out there for a while though. GH would be better off picking up James Scott as a long-lost Cassadine. JS has a HUGE following still & to see him as an evil character again? YES PLEASE!!!

The show should be more flexible and find a way to get Bo in there for an episode or two if he wants to do it. Fans would enjoy it so it would be a win/win. GH does cameos all the time for a few episodes and it keeps you guessing because you never know who is going to show up. Days seems less flexible in that regard – the cast is more or less “set in stone” at any given time with very few surprises. I’d rather see Bo pop in for cameos than have him “on the canvas”… Read more »

Honestly I am starting to believe that it is less the show’since fault and more his. I like the Hope and Aiden pairing, but the right recast could work for Bo as well…maybe Robert Kelker Kelly could take on the role again as he is not on GH anymore. Other suggestions are Ricky Paul Goldin or John Loprieno!

Days is written and mostly shot six months in advance. It doesn’t matter what fans want or don’t want. I don’t really see anything wrong with that. Fans are unrealistic sometimes. There are four soaps left so the actors have little choice anymore if they want to stay in daytime. I see actors jumping ship for other things. They are very careful what they say so they don’t offend fans. Anyone who doesn’t see this is not realistic. Some actors leave because the industry may only be around another five years or so. They plan elsewhere for future. I find… Read more »

Well said. And viewers wonder why some actors refuse to engage in social media – why would you want to when you are crucified? Over the past 30 years people has actually been very reserved with fan interaction. Now that he does share an opinion he is being slammed.

I think for the fans, it would be better to get PR back for a week to do a death scene, complete with flashbacks of Bo/Hope, than go with the current strategy. So many couples have been separeted for years. It just seems sad that Hope is not willing to do the same. Recast is better than the current plot. Hope/Aiden will never be a supercouple to DAYS fans. (Unless it is after Bo’s death)

My guess is that he is in talks with Days and he got in trouble for tweeting about it. it will be a surprise when he shows up. I myself.. really don’t care if he ever comes back.. also Home and her new man are soooo boring.. Just a waste of talent with no storyline..

Although I am sure Peter is enjoying this time with his daughter, I also suspect the response by fans to the Hope-Aiden pairing is tugging at Peter. Just goes to show you “the show must go on”! The fans fell in love with Bo and Hope years ago, but now they can also fall in love with Hope and Aiden. (Remember Mickey and Maggie? Now it is Maggie and Victor!) One man’s trash is another’s treasure. Even if Hope-Aiden don’t get as much scree time (or storyline) as younger couples on the show, there is an actor out there who… Read more »

Having Bo (Peter) come back only to die was wrong wrong wrong! Days you messed up by not finding a way to keep him. My husband has watched the show with me and is now very sad! Yes, it’s just a show but honestly I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was to find out Bo was coming back. Days should have done EVERYTHING to keep him! I won’t watch the show ever again and so say all my friends. It reminds me of General Hospital when Genie Frances left and ruined that beautiful love story! YES I… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
