You can never get enough of ole’ Ben Weston in your life now can you?

The actor who made crazy serial killer Ben so much fun to watch, Rob Scott Wilson, is back in the saddle at his familiar stomping grounds at Days of or Lives!

According to Soap Opera Digest, Wilson is back and on contract at the NBC daytime drama series.

Rob tells SOD, “I’m really grateful, ” when discussing his return. “There is still so much with Ben; he’s so layered and such a fun character to play.”

With head writer Ron Carlivati weaving the Salem tales it will be intriguing to see just how Ben is integrated back into the canvas.

    I like the actor, but not the character. I’m not thrilled about this. I would prefer he return as a different character, but it sounds like he is coming back as Ben.

    I totally love the actor but I’m having some trouble seeing how he could fit back into the canvas.

    He’ll be SHIRTLESS quicker than you can say. ..Huh..I thought he was a convicted sadistic serial killer. Welcome back Heather Webber, I mean Ben Weston. I guess if Sami can hire goons, break him out of the Institute for the very VERY nervous, then Gabigail will most likely hire HER own goons. ..oh my aching haid.

    Amazing news. Can’t wait! RSW gave such an impressive performance when Ben was written as the necktie killer it was such a shame that the writing was on the wall. Can’t wait to see how they will integrate him back into the canvas!!

    Nope, not excited!
    What’s the point of bringing a serial killer back?
    Is he going to try to redeem him AKA Franco on GH?
    This is just another re-writing of history, far as I can see.
    An occasional visit for storyline purposes is one thing, but on contract?
    No. Way!

    Is Ben DOOL’s answer to GH’s Franco? I hope not. I enjoy Ben, and I like the idea of an antagonist other than a DiMera.

    Ben, on ‘Days’, is very good looking and a wonderful actor. Really enjoy watching him.
    All hopes for me, are that Ciara, can get him on track, and they can become the next HOT couple.

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!
