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 ?!?!… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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.❤️

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

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.

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!!!!

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….

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

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.
