Last night in ceremonies held in Los Angeles at the Beverly Hilton,  Days of our Lives,  The Fosters, Bridegroom and Behind the Candelabra were among the award recipients at the 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards, with more awards to be handed out in another ceremony in New York City on May 3rd.

The Fosters, featuring former OLTL and Sunset Beach star Sherri Saum, and has  B&B’s Joanna Johnson (Karen) as one of the shows EP’s,  took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series for the ABC Family series.  On hand to accept the honor were Saum, co-star Terri Polo, and co-creators Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg,

Outstanding Documentary was a tie, but one of the winners was the sensational Bridegroom, and on hand were Shane Bitney Crone (who’s story is the centerpiece of the film) and the film’s executive producer, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason.  The other documentary winner was Call Me Kuchu.

Days of our Lives had already won the Outstanding Daily Drama category, because there were no other nominees in the category for the depiction of Sonny and Will’s love story.   On hand at the event representing DAYS were Guy Wilson (Will) and Kate Mansi (Abigail).  Guy was tweeting many pics live from the event.

Freddie Smith (Sonny), who was one half of the honored storyline was not in attendance. Chandler Massey (Ex-Will), who was a major part of the success of the couple of Will and Sonny last year was not present, for those who may have been inquiring.

Behind the Candelabra, the television movie about the life of Liberace starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon took home the award for Outstanding TV Movie or Mini-Series!

And Rita Moreno presented Jennifer Lopez with the Vanguard Award for the work in the fight for equality for the LGBT community, which includes her work as executive producer on ABC Family’s The Fosters.

Freddie was in St Louis Michael promoting Nerium an anti aging cream that is in a lawsuit right now brought by Ray Liotta so perhaps sending a message to you and all the soap media just how much he hasn’t enjoyed the past few weeks or months

Why do you keep trying to hide the fact that Freddie has lost interest in his own story on DAY’S because it has been ruined since Chandler Massey was fired and Guy Wilson took over. We all know Freddie Smith boycotted GLAADS and to be honest with you I’m proud of him for doing it, why would he want to be in the company of a man that has trash talked certain people on social media and gotten away with it. Why would Chandler attend he’s not stupid either he would only attend if Freddie was and as that didn’t happen he’s not going to be there is he. Also are you trying to tell us that in the two years Freddie and Chandler had been WILSON they didn’t need to attend the GLAADS to pick up the award they could have stayed at home, are you kidding me, the gay community love Freddie and Chandler as WILSON and they both knew that, that’s why they accepted the award and the GLAADS gave it to them, but this time they were slapped in the face when Guy Wilson and Kate Manis turned up to accept the award on Freddie and Chandler’s behalf because Guy Wilson doesn’t even understand the roll he is playing and Kate Mansi has nothing to do with the gay storyline except that she introduced Sonny and Will (Freddie and Chandler) and she is their cousin. So why was she even there?

I find it odd that Days hasn’t had much coverage from the Glaad Awards, Freddie not being there is also odd. I would’ve thought that Glaad was more important then doing a Nerium event. I don’t know what’s going on with Freddie but something doesn’t sit right with all of this. I don’t even know why Guy Wilson was there he wasn’t part of Wilson last year. Something isn’t right in my opinion.

Congrats to all the winners.That been said i’m wondering why Freddie Smith wasn’t in attendance.Now maybe he had a valid reason for not being there.As for Chandler i think we all know why he wasn’t there.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Michael Fairman Season Premiere With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.

Nobody Does Weddings Like DAYS … Get Ready For John and Marlena’s

A Jarlena wedding written by DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati can bring with it several things: delicious drama, fun, love in the air, and dire circumstances!  And from the looks of this just released extended :30 promo for next week’s episodes of Days of our Lives that is exactly what viewers can expect.

The question is  … through it all, will John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) finally re-tie the knot?

From the teaser, it would seem there are many expected, unexpected, and surprise guests attending the nuptials including: Sami (Alison Sweeney), Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison), and a person whose face is in bandages in a tux!  And in the finest of soap opera traditions, things look to being going horribly wrong before the wedding day,

But as the promo teases, this wedding is a weeklong event, and someone will not be going home from the wedding when a gunshot is fired!

And if that was not enough, it looks like Will (Chandler Massey) finally remembers his love for Sonny (Freddie Smith), and it appears a long-awaited reunion may finally may be the order of the day, but what about Paul (Christopher Sean)?

Let’s not forget the last tine Carlivati wrote a series of major episodes for a wedding event – that of the double wedding of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Marci Miller) and Sonny and Paul – and we all know what happened that time!  Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) showed up at the church just in time to drop the bombshell that Will was alive which put a major clink in Sonny and Paul’s portion of the big day.

So what do you think will go down?  Will Jarlena get to say their “I Do’s”?  Who possibly gets shot?  It’s a not-to-be-missed week of DAYS.  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
