More big news out of Salem! Days of our Lives is bringing none other than former All My Children star, Sal Stowers to the series in a new contract role of Lani!

Stowers who played the role of Cassandra Foster on Prospect Park’s online version of AMC, joins the canvas as the long running NBC daytime drama begins to celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this fall.  Look for Sal to make her DAYS debut on-air in September.

All My Children fans know Stower’s work, as she was at the emotional epicenter in one of the most harrowing, dramatic and talked about story arcs in the online reboot of the series – the human sex trafficking storyline.

In story, Cassandra was the adopted daughter of Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan).  The beautiful Stowers was also the season nine winner of the reality competition series America’s Top Model.

So, what do you think about Sal Stowers joining DAYS? Who do you think Lani will  be related to, and have a love story with?  Share your thoughts below!

I’ve always thought Abe should have more nieces and nephews through his sister Karen and brother Jonah. I’ve also thought they should recast the character Marcus Hunter and give him children. But my guess is that this character will be connected to neither… probably a completely new character. Hopefully she won’t be from anywhere like Pine Bluff!! Maybe another unheard of child of Stefano. Actress wise, I think it’s a good choice!

She did really well on AMC. Being as we have no story or character info, my wish would be she would be Brady’s new love interest. I don’t like him with Theresa. Just because they share a child doesn’t mean they need to be romantically involved.

If you have watched Days as long as I have..(since the very first day it came on) you know that people are constantly coming back from the dead…especially if you are a DiMera….could this be Lexi back from the dead?

CeeCee

I think she ‘s too young to be Lexie. Then, again….anything is possible…it’s a soap, right?…LOL.

Brady and Theresa are not romantically involved. He wants so part of her in that aspect.

i’m 10 eps behind… I plan to keep up

I’ve posted this prior : i’m so disappointed with DAYS production that the leading men… Daniel, Eric, Brady… are not bringing any thing new… dull… and uninspiring

Brady : has a lot of anger…. (could be the reason he has addiction issues) really…outside of Kristen… when he was partying… is when Brady is at his finest… funniest… and catapults his acting chops.

for him to be so mad… angered… because he “blames” Theresa … for what? a bubblegum teeny bopper romance? that was not the least bit interesting… Melanie and brady were played too cutesy cutesy… there was no drama between either of them…. I’m glad Melanie is gone…

Eric : (ok : he was raped, as a priest, by Kristen) so he has SERIOUS issues with trust, lies, and relating to any one ??? He didn’t even act anything out with Serena… till the end, when she was fired… and he acts all hurt… and repeated over and over.. how she must come clean…. and that his dad is the police commissioner

Daniel : the aura around him stinks…. give me a break… he is so played out…. does DAYS LEADING MAN have to be this boring ? this dull? has no relatable charisma with any one in the cast…. OK… i’ll give Parker that laud. DAniel who is in on every story… comes to the rescue… his magic hands… heals every one. I don’t even think he’s good in bed. I’d let go/fire Shawn Christian before Daniel Cosgrove’ Aiden.

I no longer like… or care that much at all … who Arianne Zucker ends up with…

I love AZ’ Nicole… as a character… just move ON !

it’s my opinion.. that Eric and Brady have not really lent any thing… to the canvas since Eileen Davidson has left… they certainly tried Kristen with Daniel…. as soon as she left… he spiraled

I hope Theresa digs in her claws mindset and takes Brady to the cleaners… DAYS production let’s do this up right…. give Theresa some power, finesse, and femme fatale

these three amigos (Brady, Eric, Daniel)… need to be taken down a few pegs

@sharon

don’t mind me… I’ve passionately steered my viewing habit derail

LOL

thank the soap god… that a new headwriting team plus producers have arrived

CeeCee

To be honest, Stephanie? Brady is too old for any of these girls. TPTB should give him mature roles; fit for his age….especially now that he is a father. Brady is forever stuck in his twenties…LOL.
I was hoping, in my heart of hearts, that Theresa had finally started a new chapter. But, after today’s episode, my hopes were dashed instantaneously. Did you see the look on her face when she spotted the happy couple at the hospital who was hugging and kissing?……that, due to their child’s illness and then recovery, made them re-connect? Oh, please Lord, do not let her do something criminally stupid and hurt her son….bad omen.

Has Munchausen by proxy syndrome (MBPS) ever been featured on a soap opera?

CeeCee

@4ever.
Hi,
That’s a good question. Hmmmm. This could be a very inspiring storyline which would resonate with many. Could such a storyline be in the works (MBPS)? Interesting.

Abe is 112 years old and noone wants to see him in a love sl with a woman young enough to be his great grand-daughter!

Penny

This is great news, I may start watching again. They should also cast the young lady who played Miranda Montgomery (Brooke Newton) she’s a great actress. Debbie Morgan and Darnell Williams would be a wonderful addition to the cast as well. Just think about it Days, Please!

Darnell is in talks with Sudsville.com to be part of a new soap. Can’t wait!!

Penny, love your suggestions. Hope the producers are listening.

I once said id like to see Debbie Morgan on Days playing the role of Valerie Grant, a character off the show since the 80s, and as a love interest for Abe!!!

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

No way, Jimh! If DAYS brings Valerie back, she better be played by Tina Andrews who did nothing wrong, but be so convincing that some fans went crazy until she was let go. Tina was very popular until David and Valerie became a couple. It would be nice to have her back where she can receive positive feedback instead of the hate mail laced with death threats.

Tina recently tweeted that she would be open to a return. She also posted a photo of her and Richard Guthrie. If I receive my wish to have Tina back a Valerie, who should play David? I know you liked RG, but would you want Gregg Marx or someone new?

CeeCee
CeeCee

I love Debbi Morgan (Angie). And, she’s the right age for Abe, too.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

I hope she’s playing a woman who was born female. She could play Julie’s granddaughter!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe Julie’s son David got back with Valerie Grant and she is their daughter…i would like that…or she is Maxines daughter…i would like that too!!!

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

Yes, Jimh, and would you link Sally (Nicole’s coworker) to anyone on the canvas?

CeeCee
CeeCee

Okay….so, I wasn’t born when David was on in the early 80’s, but I am very familiar with most, if not all, the characters and the storylines because of my grandmother. He had a son with Trish (Patty Weaver…great singing voice)….so, David would be around fifty now, right?
I think that what jimh is saying makes sense. Sal could be playing the role of David’s and Valerie’s daughter.
But, both Gran and I would also love to see David’s and Trish’s son.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

David, Trish and Valerie would be in their sixties.

The most popular David Banning was played by Richard Guthrie (1975-1981).
I believe Trish Clayton was only played by Patty Weaver (1974-1982).
The son of David and Trish was named Scotty who was last played by Rick Hearst (1989-1990).

The original and most popular Valerie Grant was played by Tina Andrews (1975-1977).

Interestingly, Scott(y) and his girlfriend, Faith (Melinda Clarke) were casualties due to DAYS’ 25th anniversary! Melinda is the daughter of John Clarke who played the original Mickey Horton.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

CeeCee, To be clear…Scotty and Faith were written out. They simply moved away. By saying casualties, I meant they had to be let go in order for DAYS’ to afford the returnees.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

I opened a can of worms, CeeCee. Two of the returnees for DAYS’ 25th anniversary were Peter Reckell (Bo, long-term) and Kristian Alfonso (Hope, short-term).

CeeCee

@4ever. I appreciate that, 4ever…I like opened cans of worms…LOL. One never knows what one may find….thank you, for the back history.

Mo

I would like to know what character she’ll be playing and what the story is.

CeeCee

Is this nanny on the up-n-up? I already smell a rat. She’s either a spy, or a potential plaything for Brady. He’s always in need of one. Whoever she is…she brings trouble.

Mo

Where does it say she’s playing a nanny?

CeeCee

Perhaps, I mishear, Mo, but I thought I heard Brady tell John, on the phone, that he had ‘a great nanny. We saw her today.

Correction…misheard.

hey CeeCee..
I see DOOL getting many new characters..
Are they near to getting a new cast?

hadda ask– I’ve never seen so many ‘new’ entering a soap..

CeeCee

I know, Su. Also, I thought Xander was leaving?
The only one I bemoan is Sonny. I wish he would stay. But, Will needs to be castrated…LOL

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Youv’e been overdosing on GH…that sounds like she would be a spy for Ava who gets hired by Sonny as a nanny for his baby!…joking…lol…i was hoping she’d be Maxines daughter!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, jim….that’s funny…I think I am overdosing on GH….lol

I don’t think the nanny is anything but someone they hired to cart the baby in and out of scenes– but this new girl does sorta have the same look as the nanny on right now, but they are two different people.

CeeCee

Okay. Thanks for the explanation, Mary. I thought I was seeing things…going crazy, you know? LOL

I admired Ms. Stowers on the AMC reboot. She did very well in a difficult plot line. I am pleased another daytime drama has cast her.

NBC has little success in most dayparts. I think a commitment to DAYS and daytime programming may not be a bad idea, some kinf of partnership with burgeoning web soaps perhaps?

Patrick
Patrick

I too… admired … this gorgeous stunning woman… on the AMC reboot, she really did a good job, as you said with her part on AMC

which just makes me miss Angie and Jesse….

I totally agree , with many posts… that she should be tied to a character… and it’d be great to see Abe more, in the mix

Jimmy
Jimmy

Good news, she’s a great actress, though it would be nice to know who she’ll play. There seems to be a lot of shakeups as of late with DAYS, with Daniel Cosgrove likely out and now Shawn Christian mulling an exit too. However, it seems like they’re clearing the way for fan-favourite returns and even some new characters, which is good news. The next person I’d like to see go is Galen Gering, I don’t think he’s a good actor and I can’t stand Rafe.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Gee, was I the only one who saw her take Tate from Brady, today? Wasn’t that Sal? Then, I heard Brady tell John, he had hired a nanny. Am I starting to hear things? Wow…or am I losing it?

Mary SF

Similar looking to Sal but the nanny is being played by Nadia Sloane

CeeCee

@Mary.
Thanks, again, Mary.

No, it was not Sal. The nanny on TV is white and Sal is black. And IMO don’t look at all alike.

i miss redaric williams ( tyler) from y n r and think he was never given a fair shot once griffith left,but since josh griffith writing for days now it would be amazing if they brought him back to daytime! depending on the importance of this new female character, i could see her and redaric looking hot together!!

Mo
Mo

No, it would not be amazing. He cannot act. So glad he left Y&R.

Laurie

I would love to see her as a part of Abe’s family. Maybe a niece, or a daughter we never knew about. We need bigger circles, the pool is too shallow.

Mo

I wanted them to continue with a pairing of Maxine and Abe.

Congratulations to her. She certainly did a fine job with the emotionally charged role of Cassandra on AMC.

Well I hope she’s a new love interest for Abe. I really wish Lexie would come back but the actress wanted to retire from acting.

Not sure I haven’t watch DOL in a few years so I Will have to do some binge watching to see how they bring her in . I’m truly excited and looking forward to it she was awesome in and all my children . Go Sal

I was never a fan of her during her time on Top Model, but she made me a fan by her portrayal of Cassandra on All My Children. I look forward to seeing her in Salem causing some truly amazing drama!

I watched AMC online..
I remember Cassandra Foster ..
She was Jesse and Angie’s daughter..
She was a sex slave and she was forced to exotic dance etc..
She was very good!!!!

She is gorgeous!! I hope maybe she’ll be a daughter of Abe or Stefano and be paired with Rafe!!!!!!

She was wonderful on the great albeit short-lived On-line version of ALL MY CHILDREN, a show that the stupid asses at ABC should have never let go in the first place (sorry, I always have to get my digs in against ABC) – but she is a very fine young actress and I hope they give her some good scenes on DOOL.

madluv4u
madluv4u

I’m sorry but this needs to be said…DOOL just doesn’t know how to write for black characters. They always mess it up. Black characters are never at the fore-front of any sl. Abby and what’s his name were a good looking couple together and they could have worked things out but the writers didn’t know how to write for the character. It’s sad really because this is 2015 and the world is filled with bi-racial couples and children. Hopefully the new writers will know how to do just that and write for the characters and not the color of the characters!

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

I did not see her on the model show, but I did catch the AMC reboot. Sal was phenomenal. With the raw, emotional story line she was incredible. I give her much kudos and cannot wait for 9/25 to arrive!
I do hope, as others have stated, that her character is tied to someone or family already in Salem and/or history in Salem.

Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

Now below, check out the Wild Cards “leaked footage” and let us know if you think of the …. um … drama! Comment below.  And one more thing … Happy April Fool’s!
