Not again, please!!!! What round is this? Did we not go through with Hope having a bout of “Jailhouse Rock” with a bully, before? She better find her boxing gloves.
Second verse same as the first.

“I’m stunned by the mystique”

Really??? A female head writer thinks having a beloved heroine roughed up and abused in prison is what viewers want to see and consider entertainment?? Maybe in a 1940’s B movie. Hope went through this already 6 short years ago. Its not entertaining….its unnecessary….the acting is never good mainly because females do not act like that outside of stereotypical….and its repetitive. For the most part I am a fan of Higley’s work at DAYS…I feel she “gets” the show. Just as I felt that Megan McTavish “got” All My Children. Say what you will about her, but she created some of the most memorable stories and couples on that show. Back to Higley though…I may be mistaken…but didnt she write Hope’s last prison abuse story too?

I love days the rest of the soaps are scrubs ! Lol

I hope that’s a wig.

I’m not too high on prison stories on soaps because they are very limited. We’ll see how this goes.

Sorry that Hattie ends up in prison.

Oh man I love T-Boz and TLC. I’m going to have to watch the show to see her scenes. I hope she is on more, I haven’t watched days in over a year but this looks good!

watching days again mainly because jj and paul/ sonny / derrick are featured more!
cant wait for eric, austin and carrie to return
i just caught t boz on the show and was surprised to see her on screen! should be fun and entertaining
t boz has nt done much lately so if days keep her around to fill the black cast up on days they should pair her up with tek, abes brother and stir things up in salem! or bring tyler rederic ( ex tyler) from y n r to pair her up with!

The clip got my heart jumping—I am looking forward to this story!!!

Don’t know her or TLC, so I don’t really care if she stays or goes. But I’m sick of the story line with Hope in prison. How can they put a cop in a prison that could have inmates that she arrested? I guess it’s a good thing that they ages Ciara so much, the one earlier this year would have needed her mother to care for her. Enough is enough, get Hope out of prison and get on with the show

Wait don’t tell me Dot Marie will be the inmate who acts tough but will have a heart of gold and she will protect Hope — like many said before this has been done before– the only thing that seems remotely interesting is having DH play another role since Marlena has so little to do nowadays. But please let Hope save the warden’s daughter already or have Stefano is alive — anything to get her out of stupid story line that never should have existed in first place

Sounds as typically STUPID as this show has absolutely been this entire year – hate to say it, for I am a soap fan – and was so saddened by the demise of ALL MY CHILDREN and One Life to Live but this show absolutely DOES NOT hold up against those shows at all – ALL soaps can be a tad on the silly side, but this show lacks the humor that All My Children had and it lacks severely in the dramatic writing area as well.

Oh John Gordon, you are so right. I watched One Life to Live from day 1 and All My Children off and on for many years. Both knew how to successfully integrate humor into the series. I also have to agree with your other point. From what I’ve seen of the current soaps, they do not hold a candle compared to OLTL and AMC. The story lines are unbalanced. Some characters are on so sporadically that I forget they are part of the show. The big stories, i.e. the return of Aiden and the escaped criminals, fall flat. In all fairness, I do realized Days and the other shows are operating under tighter budgets these days. From flashbacks of scenes from years past, it looks like there was a time when Days was on par with AMC and OLTL. The current belt tightening has taken its toll. Perhaps it’s time for soaps to go back to radio.

Yes it’s annoying that ABC pulled the plug on OLTL and All My Children and I also agree that the writers (and performers) understood how to incorporate dry humor into their shows (Susan Lucci is practically KNOWN for dry, understated humor) and certainly the character of Tad Martin as played by Michael Knight had a feel for balancing humor with drama when needed. But THIS show, geez, the writing is so astonishingly lame – Soaps can ‘get away’ with a certain lack of credibility but honestly this show carries that to a different extreme. I also agree that it gets a little monotonous that EVERY other scene is in that ridiculous Fake Leaf Park and there are about 4 sets used – gone are the days when soaps actually occasionally went OUTSIDE for an outdoor scene –

As a former cop, Hope would be in protective custody. She would not be with other inmates. While inmates do have access to computers, it would not be unmonitored and I sincerely doubt they would have access to the Internet. An inmate day room would not double as a visiting room. At least give us a little reality Days!

And Hope would not be able to get a job until after she was classified and had been inside a bit. She may talk to a CO about a job, but she’d have to also put in a request. There is a system. I’m guessing Hope is supposed to be at the state pen.

I don’t like the prison storyline and the contrived, clichéd characters and speech. Days should never have had Hope kill Stefano. It put her character in an untenable position, made me lose respect for her.

I have been watching DOOL for years. I was surprised to see T-Boz. I wasn’t sure it was her at first. I had to come to the site to make sure.

Days Of Our Lives

Jen Lilley on Days of our Lives’ Theresa Recast Decision: “It’s a Little Befuddling, But I Still Am Really Grateful That I Got to Go Back.”

Now that the word is out that Days of our Lives star, Emily O’Brien, will be taking over the role of Theresa Donovan from Jen Lilley, fans of the Peacock streaming soap opera are wondering just how the show plans to unveil O’Brien as the recast Theresa, and how she will exit her current role as Gwen.

Meanwhile, Jen Lilley, who had appeared on DAYS as Theresa on and off since 2013, has been speaking to media outlets about what went down behind the scenes in the turn of events that led her part to be recast midstream of her most recent story arc.

Speaking with PEOPLE, Lilley shared that she was under the impression that DAYS was going to fit 12 weeks of episodes into the 4 weeks she gave the show for her availability to be back at the soap opera.  Jen wanted to return to film scenes relating to the memorial service of Victor Kiriakis, because of her close bond with the late, John Aniston.

Jen noted that she went to then co-executive producer, Albert Alarr, and asked why she received less scripts than expected. That is when she learned someone else was going to be taking over the role. She asked, “You told me Theresa’s going to do X, Y, and Z, but I just got the schedule for Monday, and it’s only this one script. Is Theresa still going to do that?”

Lilley says that Alarr responded with, “Theresa’s still going to do all of that. It’s just we’re going to go ahead and do it with another actress.’ That’s how I found out.”

It was at that time, according to Lilley, she asked who would be replacing her and learned it was DAYS cast member, Emily O’Brien. Alarr informed her it would be Emily moving over from her role as Gwen Rizczech. Jen shared she was further confused because they wanted Theresa to be blonde and Emily is a brunette. That was addressed, when she learned O’Brien would be donning a blonde wig for the part.

In wrapping up her time on DAYS, Jen said, “I think Emily drew the shortest straw, honestly. I was like, ‘That is the worst thing you could possibly do to a recast is be like, we’re going to wig you and make you just walk through fire for eight weeks.’ I don’t know whether it was a budgetary thing or a scheduling thing where they just couldn’t work the schedule out so everybody could do it. I don’t know their reasoning. It’s a little befuddling, but I still am really grateful that I got to go back.”

Now it remains to be seen, just how long O’Brien will play Gwen. Is it for the short planned arc of Theresa? Will it be longer? Will Lilley be back? All we can say is, play close attention to the Friday, October 6th and Monday, October 9th episodes of Days of our Lives.

Donna Mills, Linda Gray, Nicollette Sheridan, Morgan Fairchild, Loni Anderson to Appear in Lifetime’s 80s and Soap-Themed Holiday Movie

Wowza! Now here’s a line-up of soap opera and primetime favorites all in one movie! Coming up for the holidays, Lifetime has revealed they have an 80s and soap-themed film starring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing, General Hospital), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas), Nicollette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing and Dynasty), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest, SFT, DAYS et al) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Filmed earlier in 2023, Ladies of the 80’s is said to follow five soap opera divas (how fun and perfect!), as they reunite to shoot the final Christmas episode of their long-running soap opera!

In story, the producer, Alex (Travis Burns) and director Nell (Taylor Ann Thompson), who happen to be old college friends, do their best to keep things on the rails but as the ladies come together, old rivalries resurface that threaten to tear the production apart. With the show nearly canceled before it even begins due to the ladies’ famous diva behavior, they reluctantly agree to set aside their differences and past secrets to “act” as if they all still love each other.  When old sparks reignite between Alex and Nell, the ladies become eager to play cupid and conspire to bring the couple together.  

But wait, there’s more! In addition to the five leading ladies, the cast also includes: Days of our Lives favorite Patrika Darbo (ex-Nancy), Alec Mapa, and Donna Mills’ real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, plus 80s heartthrob, Christopher Atkins.

There is even a Ladies of the 80’s theme song, performed by none other than 80’s pop star, Tiffany!

In a statement on the project, the movie’s EP Larry A. Thompson shared: “The opportunity to bring together Donna, Morgan, Loni, Linda and Nicollette, five powerhouse women into one holiday movie, has been like finding the perfect gift under the Christmas tree.”

The official airdate of the holiday movie will be revealed shortly in the networks’s A Wonderful Lifetime Holiday movie schedule. Deadline first shared the news.

DAYS and Y&R Favorite Zach Tinker Starring in New Film ‘Beneath The Light’

Zach Tinker, who soap fans love as Sonny Kiriakis on Days of our Lives and Fen Baldwin on The Young and the Restless, is currently in production on his latest film role.

In the horror flick, Beneath The Light, which is currently shooting in Lorain, Ohio, stars Zach as a troubled young man who takes a job at an abandoned lighthouse hoping to reconnect with an old friend – daughter of the lighthouse’s current owner (John Pyper Ferguson).

Isolated, with no way to return to shore, he falls headlong into a series of mysterious and frightening experiences that make him question his sense of reality and confront his long-standing anxiety and memory gaps. A budding romance provides comfort, but the key to his redemption lies with the lighthouse owner and the unexpected bond they share.

The film is being shot under a SAG-Interim agreement during the actors strike and recently locked in Tinker, Ferguson and Anna Nicole Chavez as its leads.
