No couple can compare to Steve & Kayla. Best supercouple of all time! I’m thrilled they’ll be back on our screens!

Thanks so much for interviewing them, Michael!

Wonderful! So great to see Stephen and Mary Beth together again. And I am officially excited about the story after seeing this. I wasn’t sure what to expect by way of story and the writing given how poorly handled that was during Patch’s previous return years ago but to hear that Stephen and Mary Beth are praising this story and the writing, has me now doing a happy dance. They are the best couple ever on daytime and I can’t wait to see them back onscreen.

So nice to see Stephen and Mary Beth, and to hear their thoughts on how things are currently behind the scenes. The writers are on the floor. The writing’s good. I mean, really?

It must be better than many of us are used to at the moment because Stephen and Mary Beth don’t usually say a lot if the writing’s substandard, meaning they focus on other things…like how much fun they’re having together or how much fun it is to be with the cast, but they don’t say much else…or if they do talk, their feelings are kinda clear, one way or the other.

So, the writers must be trying. There must be true effort out there at the moment, and I’m glad. Time will tell if we like the stories, but if there’s some honest enthusiasm, that must mean the writing’s at least decent. I hope.

On Steve and Kayla…

I waited for a long time to see if Kayla would get a story on her own. That didn’t happen and I was disappointed. I would have been happy to see her move forward with her life in Steve’s absence.

Of course, it’s hard to think Kayla would or could be as happy with another fella as she has been with Steve. Granted, they’ve obviously had their struggles during their time in Africa, but that love they shared didn’t just disappear. Here’s hoping whatever’s been wrong can and will be resolved…NOT in a day or two, but in an honest to goodness, solid relationship story, full of twists and turns and stops and starts that make sense.

Thank you, Michael Fairman, for this interview.

Thank you, Days, for bringing Stephen back.

Thank you, Stephen and Mary Beth for still being willing to play these roles so we can see Steve and Kayla together again.

Though I must confess that I have a weakness for Stefan Cassadine, I will take Stephen Nichols anyway I can get him. He looks sexy as ever! So good to see you Stephen, back in daytime. 🙂

DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes On Doug and Julie’s Emotional Scenes: “We Didn’t Have To Act Them. The Love Between Us Played Them For Us.”

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.

Leann Hunley Talks Anna’s Latest Return; Stacy Haiduk & Arianne Zucker Dish Kristen’s “Unmasking” On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On an all-new Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, three women who have been part of the latest major reveal are the special guests.  First up is Leann Hunley, who’s Anna returned to Salem only to find Tony (Thaao Penghlis) very much alive and married to who she thought was “Nicole”.

Then in the twist at John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) wedding anniversary shindig, it was revealed that the woman masquerading as “Nicole” was actually Kristen, thus devastating Anna knowing that Tony knowingly married his own sister as part of plot to gain control of DiMera Enterprises.  She later learns Tony has to spend time behind bars for shooting Ted Laurent, and has to say goodbye to him as he serves time after finding him again.

Leann chats with host Michael Fairman as she weighs-in on the latest story plot, working with her dear friend Thaao Penghlis , the men in Anna’s life through the years, and how the series has written her character over the years and more.

Later, Stacy Haiduk (Kristen) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole)  sit down with Michael and talk about the sisterhood they have formed since learning that Ari would be playing Kristen in disguise.  The dynamic duo share their thoughts on the making of, and the moment of the big reveal when John figures it all out and unmasks Kristen in front of the guests at the Jarlena wedding reception, as Brady (Eric Martsolf) is beyond duped!  In addition, both Stacy and Ari share that they are looking forward for viewers to now see the return of the real Nicole, and that Kristen will no longer be hiding under a mask, and more.
