With that, actress Stacy Haiduk, not only plays the lustful and vengeful DiMera, but has also played the wacky Susan Banks.  And on recent episodes, Kristen pretended to be Susan, then the real Susan showed up, and then she played Kristen pretending to be sister Mary Moira, all the while, Kristen is going around town in a mask as “Nicole” Walker (Arianne Zucker), and when that masked went MIA things got really testy for Kristen.

Now, on this week’s all-new episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, Stacy Haiduk chats with host, Michael Fairman on how she got through the complex scenes; bouncing from one character to the other.

I love Stacy as Kristen and she is so very funny as Susan.She is doing a great job .I am so glad she is back.I was wondering what ever happened to her.I hope she stays around for a long time

Days will remain stuck in forth place with its far fetched storylines…i still watch and enjoy the show sometimes but it seriously needs to be brought back down to earth…no masks…no miracle revival of dead characters…give Jack his memory back…when he was gone i wanted the character back but i lost interest in the character now!!!

DAYS Stars Talk Definitions of ‘Soap Hunks’ with Playgirl; Rob Scott Wilson Shares, “Decent-Looking Guys with Some Good Acting Chops, and Maybe a Few Abs Sprinkled in There”

The much-anticipated feature of some of the men of Days of our Lives is now in Playgirl’s digital edition. Participating in the photo spread and discussion were “soap hunks”, Paul Telfer (Xander) Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Christopher Sean (Paul), Rob Scott Wilson (Alex) and Eric Martsolf (Brady).

The definition of a “soap hunk” has has good and bad connotations, depending on how you look at. Are the good looking guys on the soaps just there for eye-candy, or do you hope they can act too?

Playgirl asked the five men what they think are the appropriate definitions and any downfalls to being labeled a “soap hunk” and their answers were all very entertaining.

Rob Scott Wilson shared, “I’d say the male characters on a show would (also) typically be charismatic or charming. Bad boys to business men, lawyers to doctors, often played by decent-looking guys with some good acting chops, and maybe a few abs sprinkled in there.”  While Bryan Dattilo answered, “Soap hunk should be a compliment to a daytime star, although there is a stigma too. Sometimes, it means [you’re] only good for shirts off-only scenes and not too bright.”

As for being labeled another term used frequently, “Eye Candy”, the guys weighed-in on that too. Eric Martsolf shared, “One can’t control what the public thinks or how they define you. The good daytime actors have just as much depth on the inside as displayed on the outside. Staying power in the soap world requires understanding of character and an incredible work ethic. It’s not for everyone.”

Paul Telfer discussed the legacy or contribution of a “soap hunk” to television audiences: “When you say “hunk,” it makes you think of the mid 20th century, brawny man, the Marlboro Man for example. Superficial, yes, but for soaps, because the stories spend so much time with us, you can’t help but reveal vulnerability and flaws and eccentricities that someone as simple as just a hunk wouldn’t have the opportunity to reveal. This gets back to that intimacy with the audience –– it helps reveal these in our characters. Days has had hunky gay men and men in several types of relationships, still being hunks but not the stereotypes you are used to seeing. I think there is definitely a more progressive sense of what men are now.”

So, what do you think is the definition of a soap hunk? Who is your favorite? Did you enjoy the DAYS Playgirl feature? Comment below.

Shemar Moore Open to Another Return to The Young and the Restless

With S.W.A.T. to end its final season run on CBS (unless it gets picked-up somewhere else) on Friday May 17th (8 p.m ET), what could be next for its series star, Shemar Moore?

According to a conversation with First For Women, Moore shared he would be open to the possibility of reprising his Daytime Emmy-winning role as Malcolm Winters on Y&R as well as new adventures.

When Moore last came to Genoa City, it was as part of Y&R’s 50th anniversary, when Malcolm helped honor his late brother Neil (Kristoff St. John).

St. John shared, “I definitely did it for my dear brother, may he rest in peace. Kristoff was such a supporter of mine. When I was scared or nervous, he just put his hand on my back, sat with me, instilled confidence in me, and told me to keep practicing, keep trying. He rooted for me to grow, and when I left Young and The Restless, he told me I could make it.”

Since 2002, even with outside primetime roles and leads in series, Moore has come back to Y&R multiple times. Now in 2024, he shares,  “If The Young and the Restless called me today, I would go. If Criminal Minds asked me to come back, I’d go. Because you never forget where you came from. It sounds cliche and maybe cheesy, but it’s also true.”

Although he is still figuring out what’s next with S.W.A.T. if at all possible, Shemar added, “Now…when I’m unemployed, you might get me on Young and the Restless a little longer. But will I go back for a contract? No, probably not. Because if this is indeed the end of S.W.A.T., I want to continue to grow and evolve. There’s a lot in me that people don’t know that I’m capable of. I know it’s in me, but I got to dig deep to bring it out.”

But the question remains is S.W.A.T’s 7th season truly its last? “If this is our swan song, rock with us but I’m gonna try to make CBS and Sony rethink that by the time we get to (episode) number 13.”

So, do you hope Shemar Moore can come back for a lengthier stay in Genoa City and reprise his role as Malcolm once again? If so, what story would you like to see him involved with? And, do you hope S.W.A.T. can still live to see another day? Comment below.
