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 of our Lives Celebrates 54th Anniversary (Photos)

Last Friday, Days of our Lives celebrated yet another amazing milestone in their storied soap history. The long-running NBC daytime drama series turned 54- years young.

To ring in the anniversary, the cast, crew and behind the scenes creatives including head writer, Ron Carlivati and NBC executive, Bruce Evans were on-hand.

DAYS executive producer Ken Corday made a speech filled with history and ‘thank you’s’, and Bruce Evans reminded everyone of how important the characters and the show is, and how it has touched so many lives from generation to generation.

From speeches, to a cake-cutting ceremony, posing for pics, to a tasty green room filled with fun food, the cast patted each other on the back for a job well-done as the show is now breaking new ground with the time-jump that kicked off Friday and plays out more this week and beyond.

Check out some of the celebration in our photo gallery below.

Days of our Lives Blockbuster Flash-Forward Promo: Where Are Your Favorites One-Year Later?

Every year at the annual NBC Day of Days event at Universal City, California’s CityWalk, fans in attendance are treated to the premiere of the extended and exciting promo of what’s to come in story in the weeks ahead.

But this year, the promo was even more exciting because it revealed pieces and teases of what’s happened in Salem and to your favorite characters within the one-year time jump that began on last Friday’s episode when Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) woke up out of her coma and learned from Jack (Matt Ashford) that she had been asleep for a year! And … thus begins a daytime first for a drama series.

In the DAYS November sweeps promo, viewers see that Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) have their baby and so does apparently, Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  Then. Jack says to Abigail (Kate Mansi) that she is her number one reporter, while Victor (John Aniston) tells Ciara (Victoria Konefal) she is the future of the family.  Elsewhere, it looks like Kate (Lauren Koslow) is waiting tables?

Meanwhile, Sonny (Freddie Smith) says “I miss him, I miss him a lot.” Who is he referring to? Clyde (James Read) is back and looks to be in an adjoining cell with his son, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson)!  Also in prison are the ladies, Hattie Adams (Deidre Hall) and none other than Eve (Kassie DePaiva)
