Snatching women’s unborn babies, may be a through-line for this year’s November Sweeps on the soaps!

This week on Days of of our Lives, after being dumped by Brady (Eric Martsolf) yet again, Kristen (Eileen Davidson) overhears Theresa (Jen Lilley) tell Anne Milbauer (Meredith Scott Lynn) in the park that she is pregnant with Brady’s child!  This sets off Kristen’s rage, and she goes on a rampage!

Now from the newly released promo from NBC, Kristen is about to do something diabolical!  As previewed in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, “While Theresa is walking in the park alone, she is knocked out and abducted by two thugs.  It soon becomes  clear that Kristen has very dark plans for her arch rival.”

From the looks of it, is Kristen going to take Theresa’ s embryo right out of her, and have it implanted into her? Is that what is going down?  Watch the promo, and then weigh-in as we get ready to say goodbye again this week to Eileen Davidson as Kristen, as her recent run comes to an end (even though it was filmed five months ago).

Omg, wow, Kirsten sure knows how to leave Salem USA in a Big Bang way.lol I assume the powers that be are setting in place the big next return of Kiresten Blake Dimera which will or should be any where from nine-twelve months for now since the actress has just started filming the real house wives show and most recently made a return to Y&R.

I want Kristen Dimera to kill Theresa, and dump her body. Theresa is very annoying and time for her to go. Eileen Davidson will be back very soon on Days Of our Lives. Eileen told soap opera digest a few weeks ago, that she will come back to days for 3 month storyline arcs, when she is available. Like susan Banks always says Kristen is mean mean mean, LOL

Can’t stand Theresa. Would love to see Anne and Kristen mop the floor with the useless narcissist gnat. Nothing against the actress. I just can’t stand the character.

I agree. I want that witch Theresa gone yesterday.

I hate Theresa’s guts so I’m glad!

I can’t stand the character. Eve is just as bad-which is unfortunate because Kassie DePaiva is a talented actress. Neither have any redeeming qualities.

Eve just is stuck in a dumb story worrying about dreary Paige! JJ needs a better story and love interest too. But Theresa is just wretched and that Pubehead anne is even worse they aren’t even funny.

I agree. Not a fan of the actress who portrays Paige. At first, I liked her. Now, her facial expressions just make the character appear boring, dull, and miserable. The writers can still have a cute, shy character in Paige without her acting aggravated and annoyed all of the time. I agree, Kassie needs a much better storyline. I like Anne when she gives Jennifer a hard time. But, let’s face it, Anne would have been fired a long time ago as the Director of HR with her antics and attitude. Can’t stand Theresa. Could care less if the character was redeemed. Send her back to LA.

I think the show has too many “bad gals” on it – and I also agree that the character of Paige is about as exciting as a box of kleenex.
As for Eve, as portrayed by Kassie DePaiva, they need to write something a tad more interesting that the fact that she doesn’t approve of Paige’s dating JJ. It’s a storyline that’s kind of burnt out already ~

Is that even possible, to take an embryo from in uterus and implant into another one without killing it? Oh well I guess on soaps anything is possible— I just feel sorry for the child because if it makes it to term– either way it has one mess up mother.

Did Kristen even sleep with Brady this return visit…i did miss a couple of episodes…i dont recall them sleeping together recently and if they didnt how is she going to explain this child is his…would she say she made a withdraw from The Man Surplus Bank? As i said i missed a couple of episodes and the ones i watched since Eileens latest return ive never seen Kristen and Brady in bed together this time around!…Am i wrong…you are very good at knowing these things and dependable so thats why i picked you for the answer…

jimh, Brady and Kristen did NOT sleep together during this three month visit.

jimh and Mary SF, I shot off an answer before reading the whole comment. I did not mean to step on anyone’s toes…my bad.

4ever DAYS– my tootsies are just fine your about yours jimh? As 4 ever DAYS stated no they haven’t slept together, my theory is she will tell him she used the same drug on him as she gave Eric and he forgot they had sex—-Knowing her history, he will be uncertain if she is lying or not– the DNA test will say he is the father and he wouldn’t think to challenge who the mother is, so he will buy her story that she drugged him. Or she might actually drug him, like Sami did Austin. This is Days so I’m sure they will find a creative explanation for the improbable LOL

This is the last reply I had from you so I’m using it– haven’t seen you post anything for most of November– that could be for many reasons, you stopped coming to this site, you gave up on the soaps, you’re on vacation, busy, or dealing with some kind of personal crisis— not my business which or any, but just wanted to know I was thinking about you, hope all is well, and if not, that it soon will be especially with holidays around the corner– keeping you in my prayers– Mary SF

I have no idea if embryo transfer between women is possible in reality. But, it was done on OLTL about 30 years ago when a pregnant Samantha Vernon Garretson was found face down at the bottom of a swimming pool and declared brain dead. The embryo was transferred into Delilah Ralston who carried the pregnancy to term and gave birth to a healthy baby girl. I think GH did a similar story of an embryo transfer between a character named Dominique and Lucy Coe.

I have to agree with you. Neither Kristen nor Theresa is “mother” material.

I had to reply here. What could be more interesting than Theresa thinking she lost the baby is that she was implanted with the embryo of Eric (her first cousin) and Kristen!

Do they dare go there?

You know women have carried babies for relatives…one woman once carried her daughters child…so your story suggestion is possible…and by the way im not too happy getting a year older…i still like to think im 17…i only wish my body thought the same way…lol…but thanks…your always a joy to here from 4everDays!!!

You are absolutely correct Mary…you always make good sense…of course Kristen will drug him…she’ll probably do that before she leaves Salem…i knew i could depend on you for the answer…thanks!!!

She certainly goes out with a bang each times she leaves!! Next time she comes back, have her bring Jason Brooks as Peter Blake DiMera in tow!! That man was TOO fine!!!!!

Jason Brooks is one hot man, Eye candy. LOL.

He is gorgeous!!!!!!!!

OMG love him

I’ll miss Eileen and Kristen!

Will Theresa tell Kristen ‘Leggo my Eggo’…lol…anyway, what is with these similiar baby storylines at Days and GH…is Kristen really Tina, GHs Nina’s faternal twin…lol…seriously, harming a female to steal a womans unborn baby is a bit too dark and gruesome for my taste but im probably in the minority here…but it wouldnt be the first time…i like Kristen and knew she wouldnt leave Salem without creating some trouble…i originally thought she had gotten pregnant by Eric and attempts to pass that child off as Bradys which wouldve worked better…i guess in a way they are kind of using my idea but this is a little too much even for Kristen…im suprised Stephanos docs couldnt create a clone or robotic baby for Kristen to pass as Bradys…they were clever enough to create a drug to pull John out of his coma!!!…lol

I SO agree with this post!!!! I originally thought that after Kristen hooked up with Eric, then Brady, when she left Salem, that she would return with a child in tow. Can u imagine Marlena’s horror at Kristen being her grandchild’s mother!!! I was salivating at the possibility of Kristen being pregnant by Eric, bc she has no kids and the DiMera Legacy needs to be carried on….Kristen aint gettin any younger!!!!

I wouldve loved Marlena’s reaction…the show really missed it here…lots of good drama possibilities like Eric trying to cope raising a child thats a product of rape just as he decides to return to the priesthood, Marlena difficulty accepting a grandchild of her no.1 enemy…Brady believing this child his and becomes attached to him then months later learning he isnt his son and unable to let him go…so much drama had it turned out this way!!!

Of course they got the idea from you Jimh…TPTM just put their own twist to it.
I agree with you. This storyline, as the one on GH is too disturbing for human consumption, at least, this human. You are definitely not in the minority, trust me.
Thank you for your well -wishes, jimh. It is hard getting into the swing of this after a 6-month maternity leave….later, friend.

Jimh, they should hire us as story consultants!!! That Eric/Kristen/Brady paternity scenario would’ve brought months of drama and story possibilities!!!! Uggh!!!!

I like Teresa! I do like this story though, because it all bUT assures a return by Eileen Davidson as Kristen.

They need to bring back jason “cookie”cook as shaun d he is too cute and days isn’t the same without him he was wasted on general hospital they never knew what to do with him

Last week it was AS, this week it is ED’s exit from DOOL. Two of my favorite ladies gone in two weeks.

And this is supposed to make us like Theresa or feel an iota of sympathy for her? LOL! Not gonna happen!!! She enabled & encouraged Brady to use drugs while using him for his money, tried to blackmail John for a million bucks then tried to kill him, then tried to kill him again with that syringe, then calls him a vegetable umpteen times, then when she finds out she’s pregnant refers to the baby as a “get out of jail free card” – AND she only knew she was pregnant for a few hours – a day TOPS before Kristen allegedly takes the baby who Theresa has NO feeling nor regard for other than it saves her sorry fanny from doing time for the many crimes she’s committed?

NOT gonna happen.

Theresa doesn’t deserve a baby – I wouldn’t trust her with a houseplant!!

Anyone that thinks Theresa can be salvaged at this point – or will be “sympathetic” or whatever is looking at the world with rose-colored glasses on.

And —– not to be rude —– but to suggest that if the fans that don’t like Theresa are “heartless” or “cold” is just vicious. There’s nothing likeable about her and for me, that will NEVER change.

Days needs to cut their losses on this character and get rid of her.

Ur just plain wrong. Teresa is a great character and Jrn is doing s terrific job. Lots of us just love her so dont speak for everyone!

I disagree.

Time has a way of changing things. There’s a lot we don’t know about Theresa. If she is allowed to stay in Salem, I believe the masses will be in full support of Theresa in all her DAYS!

I already love her and the victimization of Theresa will be a turning point for the fans to see her true character!

I like your post, though! Your passion is great!!!

In no way, shape nor form, is Theresa a “victim” of anyone other than Kristen and she’s a lunatic, so that’s not really a fair comparison. LOL!

I will never like Theresa, ever!

I guess I’m heartless and cruel because I don’t care about Theresa and don’t have any sympathy for her after she tried to kill John. Ditto for Kristen, I hope Eileen never returns to DAYS.

I love Jen and she is a wonderful actress or we would not detest her like we do but it is time to put a stop to the insanity. SHE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED!!!! She has ruined the fragile father/son relationship between John and Brady, she had Brady back on drugs and booze and had him thinking he had nearly killed his father when in fact it was her all for an avenue to get to Brady’s money. The thought of Kristin carrying Brady’s baby makes me sick. If the fetus survives it is leaving the door wide open for Kirstin’s return. NO NO NO she has done enough damage!!

No fault to the actresses but the sisters Donovan need their parents to stop them from their stupid moves. So they need to go back to CA. like yesterday. They were portrayed in a better light back in the day!

I also prefer Eileen Davidson as Ashley Abbott #YR. Anyone who wrecks the relationship between John & Brady Black needs to go from #DAYS pronto! That includes Kristin & Theresa!

It seems to me the writers aren’t giving the vets like Drake Hogestyn the respect they deserve by not giving them GOOD story lines & more air time. For example,John Black just woke up from a coma. Now they have John going to Europe where he won’t be seen again for WEEKS! Not good at all for the fans!The newbies shouldn’t get SO much screen time in my opinion! If NBC is out of money they should have a yard & bake sale to make some more money. Very frustrating!

Days Of Our Lives

Ron Carlivati Talks on Decision to Make Days of our Lives 15000th Episode About Doug’s Funeral, and Previews Chances for WGA Award

This week, Days of our Lives celebrated the taping of their 15,000th episode. In of it itself, that is an incredible accomplishment for the long-running soap opera currently streaming on Peacock.

However, this on set gathering was a bit different. Though the show is celebrating their achievement, they are also in the middle of taping scenes surrounding the death and the funeral of Doug Williams, played by the late Bill Hayes, who passed away on January 12th of this year at the age of 98.

As previously revealed many longtime favorites are back to honor Bill and the character of Doug including: Gloria Loring (Liz), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Matthew Ashford (Jack), Maree Cheatham (Marie), Victoria Konefal (Ciara) and Stephen Schnetzer (Steve) to name but a few.

Michael Fairman TV was in attendance and spoke with Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati to gain some insight into how the 15,000 episode was crafted and the decision to honor the character of Doug Williams and Bill Hayes as its epicenter. In addition, Ron weighed-in on this Sunday’s April 14th WGA (Writers Guild of America) Awards, where he and his writing team are facing off with General Hospital for the daytime drama prize. Here’s what Ron shared below.

Was this your idea to make the 15,000th episode centered around Doug’s funeral and passing?

RON: It was. When you’re looking at it, and laying out the calendar for the whole year and you see 15,000 is coming up, we’re like, “What are we going to do?” And then, we got the news that Bill had passed away and something kind of clicked. I was like, “We should honor Doug on that show.” So then, we started to kind of build around that … when does he pass away? How does he pass away? Who could come back? You know, it’s a lot.  I’m very pleased with the returns that we got as there’s so much that you could do. We wanted everybody we could get. So, we put together a wish list and Janet Drucker (co-executive producer, Days of our Lives) made it happen.

You have Melissa Reeves back as Jennifer, when the role was last played by Cady McClain. What has it meant to have Missy back for these shows?

RON: It was so nice to see Missy Reeves. I think Cady has done such a good job, but on the 15,000th episode to see Missy as Jennifer, it’s a big deal. So having her was great, and overall, the milestone was a big undertaking, because you want to live up to it. You want the 15,000th episode to be good. Now, it has a lot of real emotion that you’re playing. because for the cast and the crew they’re honoring Bill Hayes just as much as we’re honoring Doug Williams.

Photo: JPI

Was it hard for you and the team to write this episode?

RON: Yes. I’ll tell you why it was hard to write.  When I wrote, for example, Asa’s (Phillip Carey) death on One Life to Live or Victor’s (John Aniston) on DAYS, Asa is a different type of character. Like, you could have characters going, “Oh! I’m glad he is dead.” You could have different points of view, but with Doug, you’re not having that. Every person loves this man. No one had a bad relationship with him. So, you’re challenge as a writer is how do you make it that not everybody’s saying the same thing and doing the same thing. And so, we tried to find ways to make the episode about all the familial relationships and yet, how do you make it about Doug and yet broaden the scope.

Photo: JPI

I had spoken to Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), a week after Bill’s memorial, for an interview. She said that she felt very fortunate that you did include her on discussions of how you would tackle Doug’s passing. How did that conversation go?

RON: First, I attended Bill’s funeral, which was incredible. I said to so many people it was an emotional service, but it was hard to be sad at this. The guy had an incredible life and it was an incredible celebration. And so, you’re sitting there watching this knowing that you now have to write something similar. And how do you write something that lives up to what you just witnessed? I wanted to talk to Susan to get her thoughts about, you know, how much do you want this to be about keeping Bill separate from Doug. How comfortable are you sharing your grief. She was incredible to talk to. It was a great chat.

You’re in the middle of taping these major scenes for the 15,000 episode to air in December. How do you think it’s going? Have you seen any of the scenes?

RON:  I haven’t seeing anything. I mean, we were still making changes to the script up till this morning!

Photo: JPI

The Writers Guild Awards are this Sunday, April 14th and once again this year there are two daytime drama nominees, General Hospital and Days of our Lives. How are you feeling about your chances this year?

RON: It is often just GH and us in the category. I’ve won three years in a row, so I’m kind of feeling like it’s their turn.

Photo: JPI

What episodes did you submit for contention? If I recall, they had to do with Victor’s memorial.

RON: The episodes we submitted were centered around Victor’s funeral. I think one has story with Vivian. We had some fun stuff, we had some emotional stuff at Victor’s death, and I am pretty sure that our submission was three episodes right around that time.

Did you make the decision to go with those episodes because there was a mix of humor and drama?

RON: I like to have some humor, but it was also the funeral, then there’s Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) giving birth, and then Vivian’s (Louise Sorel) crashing the reading of the will. So, we had a lot of fun and it’s hard sometimes to pick three that tell a story, as opposed to submitting for the Daytime Emmys, where the writing team only submits two shows.  So, we shall see how it goes on Sunday.

Days of our Lives Reveals Newcomers Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon

On the official Days of our Lives Instagram account, a photo has appeared featuring new additions to Salem, Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon.  The Peacock streaming soap opera is not offering up just who they are playing.

However, the smart money seems to be that Jimenez is a recast Gabi Hernandez and Calderon potentially her brother, Dario Hernandez, since the two actors are seen standing in Rafe’s (Galen Gering) kitchen.

In story, Gabi has been stuck in prison for “murdering” Li Shin. Looks like the character will be brought back on to the canvas, but will Gabi reunite with Stefan (Brandon Barash)?

Photo: CJimenezIG

If Calderon proves to be Dario that character has been off the show since 2017, when soap vet Jordi Vilasuso played the part. Dario departed Salem to avoid getting locked up in the slammer and in the process granted Abigail a divorce while in hiding.

If Jimenez looks familiar, she has been featured in roles on Pretty Little Liars,The Newsroom, NCIS, Maya and Breaking Tradition. Calderon has appeared in Walking Dead: World Beyond, and a few episodes of the soapy, The Haves and the Have Nots.

Photo: JPI

As for Camila Banus, her last day on the DAYS set was back on April 28, 2023, when she revealed she was exiting the role of Gabi, a role she made soap-famous for 13 years.

Do you think Cherie and Al are the new Gabi and Dario? If not, who do you think they are playing? Weigh-in below.
