So funny when Crystal kept getting medals! Went a bit overboard. lol
Fun interview.

Besides being a badass actress, the reason why I heart CC so much is because she’s so silly! I just wish that she was on a soap that I can bear watching……..

Best interview EVAH! Love Peter and Cyrstal – so freaking adorable, gorgeous, sexy, talented, lovable, and REAL! They keep it real and that is so wonderful to watch. Thank you Michael!

Now we just need TPTB to give these two more screen time together and a story focused on THEM! Pleeeeez!!

This has to be the best interview I have ever seen through out the whole Day of Days events. I loved how Peter answered the “best doctor” question and how Crystal fell over from all the medals. Too funny! And aww on how she seemed so embarrassed but humble on her winning so many medals. They both deserve it! I only watch Days for Bo and Carly. They are the best couple ever!

Does not get better than these two! They deserve so much better than Days is giving them. Go CarBo!

i love bope i want a bope reunion

Well, I love Carbo and I want a Carbo wedding. These two have an incredible friendship and undeniable chemistry. I want bope to go away and Carbo to stay. Bo and Carly are better suited for each other and it shows.


Michael Fairman is a huge fan of CC’s and thus quite prejudiced re anything Carly. Sorry, but I FF her scenes…don’t think she is all that! I am and always have been a Bope fan.

Really? Michael’s interviews across the board were charming.

You are entitled to be a Bope fan but the results of these polls where what they were and at no point did Michael pass comment on Bo and Carly.

He just said there was lots of nice feedback for Peter and Crystal through the process. I think both are entitled to hear that.

Love Peter and Crystal!

thanks for posting.

I love Crystal and Peter, not CarBo though. I want her to be with Daniel. Go CarDan!

This will never get old Michael. Thanks again for the last question. Perfect. Loved their answer.

I just shake my head thinking how much this show has missed out on by hiding these two for the last 12 months. Why they did not let Peter and Crystal out to market this show during their Sl is beyond comprehension. All we have heard about is Hope and from is Kristian Alfonso since March. Days you have a hidden gem in your midst. Time to stop hiding them away. Embrace Bo and Carly and roll with the wonderful dynamic between these two fine actors.

I also really enjoyed hearing them both talk with such fondness and insight about the genre itself. No superficial space cadets on show in this interview.

Loved this interview.. reminded me of the ol’ ‘outtakes vid’ from way back in early 2009. So fun to watch! Thanx M,!

Peter and Chrystal are two wonderful actors and their longevity speaks words. I liked that they had fun winning the medals and I also thought it was very clever of you, Michael. It’s always fun to see actors out of their element and having fun. I did ,too, throughout the interview. Thanks, Michael.

thanks Michael….you always have the best interviews! i loved voting for Peter & Crystal in the Gold Medal categories…it’s all about the ‘bootie, right? i’m sure we’ll get glimpses of CarBo on & off in the coming years…☮♡☺xo♥♀♀ツ

Ahhh man this was the coolest interview ever!! Crystal and Peter rock!!! They are just great actors! Thanks Michael

you guys are awsome actors, however bo you should reunite with hope 🙂 permanantly fit it in the script somehow haha great job with both your acting i look forward on watching days everyday till the weekand comes

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Eric Says Goodbye to Baby Jude

The Monday, May 27th of Peacock’s Days of our Lives, picked right back up for the emotional payoff of Nicole (Arianne Zucker) finally getting her biological son, Jude, back in her arms and learning it from Eric (Greg Vaughan).

As the episode began, Eric (with Jude in tow) is at the front door of the DiMera mansion. Eric recounts Sloan’s (Jessica Serfaty) confession. Nicole (Arianne Zucker) says she knew from the first time she held Jude that this was her child. She says a parent knows deep in their soul. Eric looks at her with tears in his eyes, as he thinks Jude is now EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) biological son. That’s a lie into itself and EJ is covering the truth of that along with Sloan.

Eric goes on to explain that Sloan even rigged the DNA results, telling the couple that they can check for themselves with a new DNA test, but this is their baby. Once inside the living room, Eric apologizes to Nicole for what Sloan put her though. Nicole says EJ was a victim too.  She turns to EJ and insists that Sloan be arrested. He tells her there is plenty of time for that. She reiterates, “That bitch stole my baby!” But, EJ is not about to do anything about it.


Eric vows he will make Sloan pay for all of her lies and deceit. Nicole asks Eric if he would like to hold Jude one more time before he leaves. Eric tells Jude he will love him more than he will ever know.

As tears stream down his face, he returns Jude to Nicole. She tells he can come over anytime to see the baby. Eric thinks it’s best for Jude to bond with his new family. Holly (Ashley Puzemis) comes in on all this and is filled-in on Jude’s “parentage.” Outside, Eric continues to falls apart.


However, after getting a call from Rafe (Galen Gering), they meet outside Eric’s apartment door. When they enter, the place is a torn up and there is no sign of Sloan. All that they find is a necklace, Eric gave her for Mother’s Day.Eric realized she took off, knowing she could be caught for her crimes. Meanwhile, back the DiMeras, an overcome Nicole is in tears that she actually has her baby back.

Now, what? Will EJ try to bond with Jude or not bond with Jude since he is knows Eric is the biological father? Will Sloan eventually get arrested? What did you think of the performance of Greg Vaughan and Arianne Zucker? Let us know via the comment section below. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s conversation with the Ari and Greg  from five months back where they talk about the baby switch storyline and more.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: Nicole Gets Her Baby Back; Then Hauls Off and Decks Sloan

This week on Days of our Lives starts, what looks to be the next and final leg of the baby Jude, baby switch saga, and all of its deceptions. As viewers saw on last Friday’s episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera, Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) told Eric (Greg Vaughan) that Jude is actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) baby. Of course, that’s a half-truth as the bio-dad is Eric.

Trapped and in cahoots now with EJ, Sloan had to confess what she did to Eric. At the cliffhanger, Eric show up at EJ’s door with Jude in tow. In tears, he tells Nicole this is her baby, and hands it to her. What will go down when the show picks back up on Memorial Day with an all-new episode?

Eric doesn’t know he is the father, but EJ does. EJ also saw Nicole kiss Eric. He is going to do everything he can to keep the truth from coming out in an effort to keep his marriage in tact.

However, how long can EJ and Sloan keep this major secret? Leo (Greg Rikaart) and Dimitri (Peter Porte) are very much alive. Will one of them blow the final whistle on them? Right, Lady Whistleblower? Will Nicole and Eric learning they are the true parents of Jude, be the impetus for Nicole leaving town perhaps with Eric, since we know Arianne Zucker’s last episode of DAYS is set to air July 29th? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile in the latest promo for this week’s DAYS, Nicole and EJ introduce “their” baby to Holly (Ashley Puzemis), while Rafe (Galen Gering) confronts Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) who is playing dumb in all of this. Rafe asks her, “Are you saying you know nothing about the baby switch?” Melinda pretends she is completely shocked, saying, “Did you say baby switch?”

In the moment you’ve been waiting for, harkening back to when Nicole stole Sami’s (Alison Sweeneybaby for months, and the two finally had a showdown which saw Sami delivering bitch-slaps to Nicole, Sloan comes to the DiMera mansion to see Nicole.  Then, Nicole screams that she lost she lost six months with her son because of all of her lies. Next, Nicole hauls off and punches Sloan.  Elsewhere, Eric grabs Leo by his shirt collar, which will be interesting to see how much Leo fesses up on what he knows about the baby switch.

Watch the DAYS preview below.

Now let us know, are you happy to see Nicole get her baby back? Are you frustrated that the story is still going on and now its Eric who is the one in the dark, along with Nicole that he is Jude’s baby daddy? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
