Very cute but not the brightest girl. “About to film my television acting debut”? It’s on the Internet dear, not television.

I don’t like her it seems like OLTL is trying to put too much of the shows stories to the youth. I don’t want OLTL to try to become something different they need to sick to the families. Hiring some singer who probably can’t even act just because she is almost famous is a really had move. I am still supporting OLTL and Prospect Park though and I am still eagerly awaiting April, 29.

It looks like they are sticking to the families from what iv read on who is returning. This singer might b the new starr but whoever she is im sure she’ll be connected to the families in some ways. But she just better know how to act.

She looks like a more badass, no-nonsense Starr who could keep bratty younger brother Jack in his place. But as Starr or not im just hoping she can act as good as she can sing. ill give her a chance b4 i judge. But will this all work out…? What sounds good so far doesnt mean a thing. its more about the stories than anything else. And like all soaps some of these stars can still quit, or be fired. So ill wait and see how it all comes together April 29th. Now once again there will be 6 soaps… Read more »

Not good news at all this woman looks like she is a bad actor and has been brought on to help with ratings. I can already tell I’m going to hate her.

They should reveal that Irene was behind Cole and Hope’s disappearance too.

A producer from OLTL is on Twitter and says that Jessie is NOT the new Starr Manning. Since she’s supposed to play an aspiring musician could she be Tina & Cord’s rock star daughter Sarah aka “Flash”?

Days Of Our Lives

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
