these two are so dynamic… FUN.. full of character… can swing the gamut on whatever the show needs. high brow with wit … just aplomb and OWN Salem. @Thaao , congrats on your own nomination!!! Anna is CLASS. cannot wait to see you two . OH GOD – they just up the ante and amp adult foray. this just gives us more kate,roman, specifically… two additional dynamo to upper crust … distract Roman , he needs some loving. just saying… OH !!!! @Ron Carlivati…. 2 things 1. even I know there was so much respect, given the talent… Yet even I could tell their was so much zeal projected @Sarah Horton. never TOO MUCH of a good thing. she acted right alongside Eric and Brady and Xander and Rex. so their… 2. PLEASE ^^^^ DO NOT do the same thing with Ari Zucker Nicole’ … she’s not even COLD. had no time to rot !!!! YES she was depended upon, along with Sami, to save this show. so yes, she deserves a shot. she’s no longer that solid gold go to. so stop !!!! YES .. it’s going to be thee eric and Nicole DANCE. this show has to got their. JUST DO NOT go over board with Ari . she is not that top draw she once was. even if now we can be distracted with Holly. argh! I was so reminded of how tired dour and choke hold Nicole presence when her facial expression and near dam break as she saw Eric and Sarah @Rex. @RON…. ^^^^^ Lindsey and Ariz are command performance… I get this however… what you are truly missing… backtrack: even I couldn’t count on one hand , why weren’t their MORE mother/daughter scenes with Maggie ! what you are truly missing is Chloe AND that heroine beacon is Carrie Brady. these two would rock the house… especially since now… you have finally broken up Rafe and Hope. there was so much sex spilling over with Rafe. The camera loves them is tantamount to that 18-49 demographic you seek… especially now that Rafe is taking care of his and Jordan CHILD. it’s so out of this world about time… that Rafe is now , still young enough, and adult to carry for a child of his own… and his own steady girlfriend… @RON you truly lost out on this huge opportunity to have rehired Carrie. TRUST ME… this weeks SOD ISSUE is clamoring about ( in the sound off section) or mail bag… that watching Galen Gerring NOW carrying the show with his single dad struggles… who’s so sexed out with siren Lani… ???? who knows peeps… this is all food for fodder on all the potential this is tapping. so yeah… watching Chloe get dumped on because Xander kidnapped Holly… was sad just watching and knowing this is Chloe curtain call…. NOT GOOD This was supposed to have been Chloe and Brady. Chloe AND Tyler Christopher… TIME. it’s a damned effin shame. Nadia Bjorlin… Read more »

I haven’t said “Rafe’alicious” in a very long time… as Ron Carlivati was spreading the wealth of canvas and tapping in to all his skillset . when scripts PLUS cast are feeding off of each other…. I savor the hour.

I am so enjoying Galen Gerring… for obvious REASON… he’s so mind numbingly handsome…. he’s the current day Cary Grant. he effortlessly nuances his delivery with effective mannerisms ALL the nuances … watch his eyes… his facial expressions DRIVE you .

I LOVE HOPE… SHE exploded imploded rises to the occasion.. WITH Bo; Aiden; Rafe. Jeezus, who goes their ?!?! I DO

I really am liking Gilles Marini

I have wanted Rafe to have his own life for so long now… that I am loving this story !!!!! just so much untapped with Rafe is going on NOW !!!! be it w/Lani… who’s another story unto herself… with implications with Eli. BOMBSHELL with the loss of their son. yet this is so appealing… with Lani and Rafe and Danny . that to watch Rafe now minding his own… and his own family… ISN’T IT ABOUT TIME !!!! why shouldn’t I be dreaming this stuff with ? BOFFO Material

Rafe gets his own life. starting fresh anew… oh there was so much going on with Sami…. Kate …. Marvel

he was so sexy in that sling fumbling with the babys bottle looking, just as we imagine, no? who wouldn’t have wanted to be “Hope” shows up at his door… AND helps him out… like the time he’s with Lani .. thanking her for her help … as he’s unpacking ??? steaks , food from Chloe /Julie restaurant. SAVOR TIME BOFFO TIME MARVEL

Rafe’alicious is back with a fervor

PLUS it’s a new inlet for Uncle Ben.

I wish that Ted who is wanting a dance with Hope , SHOOT for his reasons… has caught me. that we get to see GILES work his stuff… because it’s with charm and appeal that I am enjoying his work… that accent PLUS is simmering

so…. you’ve got so much going with this : Rafe / Hope / Lani / Eli / Ben / Ted etc

JUST “WOW”

Patrick
Patrick

Rafe does NEED to move on his own now… no more shortcoming no more propping … I so wish it was with Carrie Brady… even at the top of her game Jordan could work. is Kayla turn? God she needs to have that nurturing TURN. she exudes so much love and care… for this I am so glad that Patch is coming home… I hope without that eye patch. so ranting along because their is so much going on.. yeah i’m not in to the brain tumor thing…

so I marquee : spotlight ALL Points Bulletin

Galen Gering as Rafe Hernandez IS

Claudio

LeAnn Hunley is still a beautiful lady, wow LeAnn is 64 years and still looks good for her age. Days please sign her, to a contract. She is a wonderful actress.

Celia
Celia

Yes, Claudio…Agreed! LH is gorgeous; and natural…..it’s her face without botox or ‘plastic’ intervention. Love her!!
Aside–I think Haley is Melinda’s daughter, not her sister.
If Trask is an American citizen, wouldn’t that make Haley American? …Hmmmm–if only Trask would come forward, one way or the other.❤️

Barbara

Oh this is the best news ever! Tho I can’t imagine Rolf saving an impaled Tony I sure would love it to be Tony somehow. Hope it’s not short term!! WOOHOO

Ray

I remember Leann coming back last year. She came to Salem and was spending time with Roman. Did she disappear and the story dropped?

Satan

Well, both Tony & Andre were seen in the celestial waiting room when Marlena just about checked out from the penicillin overdose. But we did see Andre’s initials on that bizarre warehouse medical facility where Elvis & Jack also were being held.

So I guess I should expect him to escape from Hell yet again? After the first 666 times, I’m used to it.

Momo

YAY!

Jimh

Days has become like a prime time episodic tv series with stars/characters making guest-like appearances….too many characters too keep long term so i guess seeing some every now and then is better than not at all!!!!

Celia

Applause—-two of my faves!!

I just hope that the writers do justice to both Thaao and Leann.

Greatest news ever! Now I will resume watching “Days.”

Once again, DOOL needs a little boost, albeit having Nicole and Xander back is manna from the gods——the Haley/Melinda story is really intriguing to me. I have suspected for months that Trask was Haley’s mother….mentioned it several times.
I propose Tony as Haley’s grandfather. He has been in China all this time, married Chinese “royalty” …..the marriage produced a son who impregnated Melinda with Haley.
Hmmmm—I wish!!
Sooner or later TPTB must/will introduce Haley’s ‘mystery’ father…..Thrilling!! “Me like” that prospect….

Michele

I sure hope that it’s Andre when he comes back!! I love when he is on!!

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.
