I am over the character of Xander, honestly. And I just want him to stay gone for good! As for Haley Chen… I’m excited to see what’s to come with her, especially if it means more JJ time!

Xander is the new Stefano. He’s so bad and does it with so much suave that you gotta hate him but at the same time, you don’t want him to go away forever. He always gets my attention when he’s on.

He gets my attention too. Is it bad to say he should do all his scenes shirtless? 🙂

Paul Telfer gets a let… when he first started @DAYS.. his scenes with John Anniston’ Victor Kiriakis were stunning… watching Xander come close to being accepted.. WANTING very much to be part of a family. ie: when he first started , @DAYS changed writing regime.. AND he was turned that quickly , hastily to a go to character to “write off” and was let go

watching Xander and Victor spar.. was stunning to witness… you could see an easy affable chemistry that was exciting to watch… YES YES YES I cheered Victor and nephew could work, grow, and become familial.. because Paul Telfer Xander has many outlets, layer of intrigue that IS EXPLORABLE…

^^ which is my hope and wish… down the road.. if he isn’t written in to a corner.. and as you’ve said.. which I agree… to find an actor, in this day and age.. newbie welcome respite… Paul Telfer is that suave, slick, maniacal, dubious means of nature.

with Ron Carlivati.. Sure, his shirt is missing.. yet I see that RC is surely steering Xander a continued mix.. even if I was totally surprised to see him as the bad guy that all of Salem it seems will hate him even more.. with his treatment of Nicole… YET it seems Nicole , is still alive and heading back to Salem… WHEW !!!! Oy.. ^^ per @4EVER. I had wanted a complete reprieve of bad guy Villain , when he returned Jeannie Theresa back to Salem.. which never happened.. that was disappointing.. especially since Victor was in on what was going on with Theresa. she assured Xander she would speak up on his behalf when they both made it back to Salem.

he’s an amazing actor who does have chutzpah … LOL… yeah I salute

with all the high caliber writing RC AND his co-horts are drumming up.. let’s hope this time around… he is given wings .. because he flies in my orbit

DANG

why not have him a part of the Kiriakis Empire.. he’s a viable contentious riveting hold… KEEPER

Patrick

shoot, I know @DAYS films 6 months ahead… yet i’m fairly certain on my assessment… not that many may “care” about Xander… I do

I’m just glad he’s back on track… AND his take… keeps REELING

it just happened out of no where… how quickly Victor turned on him… so that was a clue right their.. that he was expendable

I have been soooo enjoying days…..yet, I don’t like this thing between Will and Paul. It’s so lame!! Will has such will power….pardon the pun. I know I could never sacrifice my love for the sake of what, exactly? Are there really such people in the world?
I could never be with someone else while passionately in love with another. I am soooo weak!! LOL.
As far as Xander, I can only take his aggressive machoism in bits and pieces.
If he survived the fire; did Nicole?…..too hopeful, I guess.

Yes, Celia, Nicole will return. It was inadvertently spoiled in the Xander returns story in The DOOL App when it was mentioned that Paul Telfer has scenes with Ari Zucker. It was a fun find!!!

American Idol contestant??

Why do I get the feeling that ReRon is going to come up with a new auto-tuned bubblegum singing waste of time like he did on the other two shows he ruined?

I’m glad Xander is returning.

BTW, loving the DOOL app!

Angelica McDaniel OUT as CBS Head of Daytime As Network Restructures

There has been a swift turn in the CBS Daytime hierarchy.  In news this evening, CBS Head of Daytime Angelica McDaniel has exited the network and her position, following a restructuring which dissolved her position.

According to Deadline:  McDaniel’s position is being eliminated as the network is folding the daytime team into the Current Programming department headed by Amy Reisenbach.”  Angelica had been with the company for nine years.

Reportedly, McDaniel’s last day at CBS was today.  The move by CBS now makes it similar to how ABC handles their soap opera, General Hospital as it is overseen by Vicki Dummer. who oversees all scripted series for the day-pa

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

McDaniel oversaw The Young and the Restless (who’s ratings have been on a decline of late) and The Bold and the Beautiful for the network.  She also was responsible for championing The Talk to daytime television.  Angelica was promoted over a short period of time by industry standards to her position after her accomplishments.

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
