Well, everyone wanted to hear from Susan Flannery (Stephanie) yesterday to find out her thoughts on two things 1) What did she think about capping her legendary career with a Daytime Emmy Nomination for Stephanie’s swan song  on The Bold and the Beautiful? 2) What did she think of her long time co-star, and scene-mate Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) finally landing a Daytime Emmy Nomination?

The answers to that came today from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan in a new chat with the four-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is one of the favorites to bring home the gold again this year in the Outstanding Lead Actress in A Drama Series category.  Flannery also discusses her on-screen death, something she had not previously done any press on.   Here are a few excerpts!

Susan on how she found about the Daytime Emmy nod yesterday: “Brad Bell called and said, ‘I’ve tried desperately to wait until 7 a.m. to call you. You’ve been nominated!’ The first thing out of my mouth was: ‘What about Katherine?’ It’s so funny. I was so excited about Katherine, I forgot to ask who else had been nominated in my category.”

Susan on how she and Katherine submitted the same episode which both garnered them a nomination when Stephanie died and what she thought of it:  “I loved it. Toward the end, someone at the show told me Stephanie was going to die in, like, three weeks and I went up to Brad’s office and said, ‘You’re gonna have Brooke there with her at the end, right? He looked up and gave me this great big grin and said, Yes, that’s who it is.’  I said, ‘Fabulous!’ I think it worked out really well.”

Susan on if she will show up at the Daytime Emmys:  “Yes I will be there — just to watch Katherine win!”

What do you think about Susan’s sentiments for Katherine Kelly Lang? Would you like to see Susan and Katherine both win for their heartbreaking final scenes together on B&B?  Let us know!

NO I WANT MICHELLE STAFFORD TO KICK EVERYONE ASS AT THE EMMY JUNE 16 MICHELLE STAFFORD

I don’t watch Bold and the Beautiful, but she likes a humble class act.

SUAAN FLANNERY AND KATHERINE KELLY LANG DESERVE IT

Yes, I would Love to see both ladies win they are the originals and they make the show it is so hard to watch now without Susan I still do for Katherine., I miss Ronn but he needs to do do what life drives him to do. I only hope that now Katherine is finally also recognized for all her hard work in the B&B she deserve it to. Congrats.

that was so nice of Susan Flannery: real words…. I want to be at the Emmy’s to see KKL WIN.

this would be a big surprise… to see this happening… a highlight.

considering… all that GH is not.

Patrick….Patrick….Patrick……..

I hope KKL wins. She was finally nominated despite there being years when she should have been. It’s tough between Susan and Heather in this category. Maybe we’ll have a tie!

I would like to see Susan win… but not Katherine… sorry.

Susan deserves this Emmy for her incredible last performances!!! Oh boy B&B without her is nothing…I don’t think any other show was so dependent on one character like b&b. Susan made Stephanie truly an unique and unforgettable!!!

Well my sentimental favorite is for Peggy McKay the woman is 85 years old even though I do not watch DOOL my sister does and says her reel was very good. SF has 4 emmys I am sorry I would like to see a lady who has been in the industry this long finally get some recognition. I use to watch it DOOL and I always feel that soap get’s the shaft. Heather Tom won last year I just get tired of the same old same old.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

(They) reach out and they’re like, ‘Hey, when are you back? When are you back? When are you back?’ That just speaks to their care for this character.'”

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
