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!

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.
