I have several. Hopefully, at least one of them will merit being asked: 1. As a long-time viewer, I was really surprised with the storyline revealing that Kay and Jill were related. The subsequent scenes where the two worked to establish a mother/daughter relationship seemed inane to me given their bitter history. Even though the writers have “undone” their biological connection, the characters do not seem to have recovered. Jill and Kay were always at their best when they were scheming against each another, a situation that logically grew from their early years on the show. The interaction between the characters since the mother/daughter storyline is odd and the writers don’t seem to really know what to do with them. While I religiously followed this duo for decades, I have not understood the dynamics between Kay and Jill for the past few years. A couple of years ago, I saw a group interview with several cast members, including you and Jess Walton. Walton remarked that she really liked the idea of the mother/daughter storyline when she learned about it. You indicated that you were not in favor of it. Now that this plot has ended and the characters have evolved, I was wondering if your thoughts about this storyline have changed? What is your impression of the current relationship between Jill and Kay? 2. For the first two decades of the show, we always saw Kay Chancellor sitting at her home and dealing with the troubles in her life. We rarely saw a Chancellor Industries executive and months (in some cases, years) would pass before the company even remotely was involved in a storyline. It was pretty clear to me that Kay’s second husband, Phillip Chancellor, built the business and that Kay was the unstable socialite wife who never showed any serious interest in the company (other than as a source of income). In the past decade, we have suddenly seen Kay take an active role in running Chancellor Industries. She appears to be an astute, experienced businesswoman, making serious financial decisions about the company. This often has puzzled me. Where exactly did Kay get all of newly found business knowledge? The show has never addressed her sudden insight and interest into the workings of Chancellor Industries when Kay spent 20 years barely mentioning it. As far as I can tell, we didn’t even get a minor storyline where Victor coached Kay on how to be a CEO of a large operation. I’ve waited for several years for a plot where Chancellor Industries is on the verge of bankruptcy due to unwise decisions by the inexperienced Kay. I was wondering if Miss Cooper had any thoughts on this? 3. Who was your favorite romantic partner for Kay? Who was your least favorite romantic partner for her? 4. What was your favorite storyline from the show and why? What was your least favorite storyline and why?

I would like to know what Jeanne has to say about the recent ousting of Maria Bell, and what she thinks about the changing of the guard at Y&R behind the scenes.

Also, does she get a say in what Mrs. Chancellor wears, or is that what the costumers decide? She is always so perfectly put together!! 🙂

One more…. how much fun was it doing that cake fight with Jess Walton a few years ago? That was awesome television….. really all of the fights she’s been in with Jess are so memorable. Was it difficult doing all of that rolling around? 🙂

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

From the looks of it, Y&R has major plans for the character of Chance and it appears that the series will soon reveal some of the layers of his connection to Adam, and figuring out who is behind the new will that emerged out of nowhere of the late Katherine Chancellor that has caused turmoil for so many.

If you caught Brock or Danny’s debuts; what were your first impressions? Let us know via the comment section below. (more…)

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Reeves shares the entire DAYS team was up for the challenge. Melissa also reveals during the dramatic scenes where Jennifer’s family was acting emotional circles around her, that she fell asleep during her scenes while she was playing Jennifer in a coma.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.

Now below, let us know your thoughts on what Melissa shared regarding the latest developments one-year later for Jennifer Horton Deveraux, and the DAYS time-jump in the comment section below.
