The 5 Best and Worst Movies of 2015 Worst of 2015 1.

Suooo says the movie was so bad and disgusting that she almost left the theater. Seriously, happy for the actor but do wish this Fifty Shades crappolla would go away. I hate that the good books and good writers are being ignored while the writer of this book, a woman who doesn’t even understand sentence variation, makes millions upon millions. I also understand folks like erotic fiction. But you do not have to prostitute your good taste in order to be turned on by prose. You can read DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover or Henry Miller’s The Tropic of Cancer… Read more »

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
