Big news out today from TV Guide on how Crystal Chappell’s character of Dr. Carly Manning will get through her drug dependency,  and possibly usher out Chappell from the series, now that a few weeks ago Days of our Lives dropped Chappell when her contract expires in August.

First comes the news that daytime favorite from All My Children and Santa Barbara, Sydney Penny has been cast to play Dr. Norman, who will work with Carly to overcome her drug addiction at the rehab center.  And then DAYS had added Cody Longo (the former star of Make It or Break It) to the  cast as Nicholas Alamain, Carly’s son!

Acording to TVG, “After mother and son are reunited and Carly seems to be on the mend, look for Chappell — who has been fired along with several other Days stars — to be ushered off the series.”

Look for Penny, to start airing on Days August 30.   So it would seem from this that Chappell will be seen on DAYS at least into  September.

Still doesn’t seem real that this is happening. Now they cast Nicholas! At least it looks like Carly is at least getting an exit, and possibly an upbeat one.

Some characters don’t get an exit, they just stop appearing, or they kill them off.

I’m gonna miss seeing Crystal on tv regularly. I wish Corday would have let the new writers fix Carly and Chloe.

Icam, I still can’t believe it myself. But once she is gone, so am I.

Yeah I agree.. both Carly and Chloe are extremely popular characters and both have ties and history in Salem, unlike the Hernandez family who IMO should have all been first on the chopping block. What’s strange too is when CC came to the show she brought alot of viewers with her and with their ratings dwindling, getting rid of one of your ratings getter is a bad move.

After yesterday’s episode, I thought Carly Manning’s exit would be dire. Glad there will be a happy ending for Carly and for Ms. Chappell’s run on the show.

This still doesn’t feel real to me. It wasn’t fair the first ime we lost her and its feels even worst now. I don’t care who’s coming back. I already know their stories. Days made a HUGE mistake letting her go. When she leaves I’m outtie baby.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
