Sunday saw most of the cast of NBC’s Days of our Lives, some of your favorites from CBS’ The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, and a former soap star turned pop singer …  Jesse McCartney, we are talking about you … participating in Tinseltown’s kick-off to the holiday season, The Hollywood Christmas Parade!

This year however, weather was not the friend of those attendees, the press, or the stars as heavy rains soaked the red carpet prior to the parade, and come parade time there were intermittent showers, and/or some drizzle.

Needless to say, umbrellas and a change of clothes were needed.  But all in all, come rain or come shine, a great time was had by all!

Days of our Lives was the big honoree for the event as a kick-off to their year long celebration marking their upcoming 50th anniversary season next year!  On hand were some your favorite Salemites including: Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Joe Mascolo, Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi, Lauren Koslow, Jen Lilley, Suzanne Rogers, Peggy McKay, Guy Wilson, Christopher Sean, Meredith Scott Lynn, Arianne Zucker, Galen Gering, Eric Martsolf, Aloma Wright, Casey Moss, True O’Brien, and Molly Burnett.

The Young and the Restless was represented by Sharon Case, Sean Carrigan, Tristan Rogers, Melissa Ordway (with her husband former DAYS star Justin Gatson), and Kate Linder, and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Rena Sofer and Sean Kanan also participated in the annual Hollywood tradition.  Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath, singer Taylor Dayne,  Kool and the Gang, Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora also stopped to pose for some pictures along the way, as well as Home and Family hosts: Christina Ferrare and Mark Steines.

The Hollywood Christmas Parade will air on television first on Wednesday, December 10th on the Hallmark Channel. The next airing will be on Friday, December 19th on The Hallmark Movie Channel.  If you live in Los Angeles, you can watch it on KTLA Channel 5 on Friday December 19th, and again on Sunday, December 21st.  And for when the parade will air in your area … click here for stations, dates, and times!    Associated Television International is once again producers of the parade telecast, and Erik Estrada and Laura McKenzie are back as the hosts with the most during the parade.

I love Deidre Hall, she is a sassy, classy lady. The woman never ages, Deidre is 67 years old wow hard to believe. She takes good care of her self. I miss Sami Brady so much. Alison Sweeney is one talented lady and actress.

I am very surprised that there is no photo of Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R). Linder seems to ALWAYS be pictured at any event involving Y&R actors.

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
