Can’t believe B&B is 2nd…That’s the dumbest soap on the air right now. No one on that show is beautiful. Steffi is so fugly. Brooke is the only one on the show that has some appeal, but age is catching up with her. No I don’t watch anymore.

It’s not all bad…. Don Diamont is smokin’ up the screen, there. He’s like a perfectly aged slab of beef-cake!

I like KKL looks…at least she’s natural looking and not deformed like Hunter Tylo who ruined her once beautiful face.And Don Diamont….he’s so good when he’s bad.Thats what getting older in a good way looks like.So sexy ! The writng on the show can really get bad, but I’m biased because I’m still missing ATWT and my beloved Van Hansis!

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.
