During this past weekend’s Day of DAYS 2016, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman chatted with one of the all-time great DAYS supercouple, Patch and Kayla, played by Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans.

During the conversation, the trio talked about Steve’s proposal to Kayla, and how the fans were looking forward to seeing that moment on air.  Mary Beth related why it played so sweetly to the audience, “He’s (Steve) had been trying really, really diligently for so long!”

As for if Stephen ever gets frustrated with constantly having to wear an eye-patch, he noted: “I don’t mind the patch at all. Sometimes it’s irritating, but I love the patch.  It’s unique.”

Mary Beth chimed in on why Stayla is so popular all these years later: “I think the way the writing has been they have let us grow as people. We didn’t have to fall in love again like we did in our 20’s, and Albert Alaar (co-executive producer, DAYS) who is amazing, wanted to see a relationship between people who have known each other a long time, and how that evolves.” But overall, it all comes back to how great Stephen and Mary Beth are together on-screen. Evans added,”We have a great connection.”

So if Patch and Kayla eventually tie the knot, will it be marital bliss?  Stephen answered: “It’s a soap opera.  What do you think? (Laughs).”

When the interview turned to the casting of their on-screen son, Joey, played by James Lastovic, Stephen reveals he saw James audition tape with Mary Beth, and thought he was terrific.  Later, when talk turned to the Daytime Emmys, Mary Beth realized it’s her turn to host the ladies luncheon with the upcoming nominated lead actresses, since she is the defending champion category.

Hi Michael,

Thank you so much for this interview with Mary Beth Evans and Stephen NIchols. They have been my favorite actors since 1986. They are two of the most genuine people and have such respect and love for one another it is a pleasure to witness. I love how they can laugh with one another and the ease they have with one another. I have had the good fortune of meeting them a couple of times. I am always so nervous but they are just so nice. You asked great questions too. I truly hope Steve and Kayla finally get the happiness they deserve for at least a significant amount of time.

Thanks for this interview. I really enjoy listening to their thoughts about what’s going on between Steve and Kayla.

Stephen and Mary Beth seem like good people.

There are no two characters I’d like to see married more than Steve and Kayla. Heck, I’ve been waiting since 2006 when they reunited after Kayla thought he was dead for 16 years. I thought we’d get a wedding THEN, but the show acted like that 16 year separation wasn’t a big deal. The show never acknowledged that their 1990 wedding probably was no longer valid due to his being gone for more than a decade and a half.

But now they’re divorced….though they never stopped loving each other…so a wedding is in the cards, and since I’ve been waiting for ten years, I’m glad!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
