If you want your fix of cray-cray as only former Days of our Lives star Kate Mansi (Ex-Abigail) can bring to the table, then you don’t want to miss tonight’s LMN premiere of Unwanted Guest! The made-for-TV movie airs Saturday at 8EST/7CST.

In it, Mansi stars along with former GH and OLTL favorite Ted King (Ex-Alcazar, GH) and Beth Littleford.

As to the story, when Amy (Mansi) has nowhere to go for winter break, her friend Christine insists she come stay with her family. What begins as a dream situation turns into a nightmare when Amy starts to obsess and wreak havoc on her welcoming hosts!

During On-Air On-Soaps “Farewell Days of our Lives” interview with Kate, she mentioned she has been playing some form of crazy in some projects, even after Abigail had gone down a dark ans twisted road during her last months in Salem.  Kate related about her work post-DAYS: “I did two indie films; one is called Unwanted Guest, and one called The Boyfriend Killer. I am leads in both films, and I play a crazy killer in both. When I left DAYS I was thinking, ‘Oh, I’m going to go do something light. I’m going to take some improv classes.’ Then I went into Fatal Attraction 2 and 3! (Laughs) I have been enjoying auditioning, and getting the opportunity to play other roles, but of course, you miss the security of playing a character you know so well, and know even better than yourself while having a place to show up where you feel respected, and you don’t have to prove yourself. So that part is different. I like to be working, and that is the thing I am learning. Patrick Muldoon (Ex-Austin, DAYS) jokes with me so often: ‘Oh, it’s not like you are going to be type cast, right?’ (Laughs) It’s his favorite joke. He thinks it’s his claim to fame. Patrick will say, “The Austin/Abby story is when you learned to play crazy. So I really take credit for that!” (Laughs) Patrick is in the The Boyfriend Killer, and he was cast first. By the way, not to say that he is not type cast, he is playing a recovering alcoholic father that is the cool dad, and womanizer. So, I will have to throw that back at him! (Laughs)”

Yes I watched Unwanted Guest starring Kate Mansi. She did pretty well but it just made me miss her more in Dool. Wish she would return to Chad.

I agree, Sandy. Kate really outdid herself as Abbi. She was so perfect in the role, She made the scenes come to life.
And, Billy Flynn is a master at his craft; for one so young. He has been extraordinarily en pointe since day one. This is ONE EMMY WINNER!!!!!! So deserving.

Ahhhhhh…Michael Fairman…I would never have tuned in to the movie for Kate Mansi since I didn’t watch the soap when she was on and I didn’t read this article for the same reason. So imagine my surprise when I I stumbled upon the movie by accident while flipping channels and was surprised to see Ted King…so happy to…haven’t seen him since OLTL. Always loved this actor! I guess I’m surprised that you didn’t mention him along with Kate Mansi in your heading. Sigh…I forgive you… 🙂

I recognized the lead male and couldn’t place him. Ted King! I really liked the movie. I only tuned in for Kate Mansi. I thought she did a great job and I liked the movie. It wasn’t the usually campiness or terrible acting that LMN usually produces.

Hi dmr…well, we agree on Ted King, lol. I loved him as Alcazar on GH and Tea”s husband on OLTL. We disagree on the movie though…yes, the acting was fine. Didn’t have a problem with that. But it was the predictable crazy love-starved sexy chick kill everyone in her way to get to her latest object of affection…formula. And the stupidity (no offense) but the daughter is lying in the bed sicker and sicker and neither her mother nor step-father call the doctor, King’s wife falls and breaks her leg, is in the hospital, yet he’s convinced not to come home,. He SEES the powder in his wife’s coffee and ignores it, she begs him to get rid of psycho chick, tells him her suspicions, but he’s too dumb to see it and doesn’t kick psycho out. His wife is half-hanging out of bed when he finds her, he casually props her back up in bed and goes to work (and STILL doesn’t check on his step daughter) and then the mom flys into the room to save her daughter with nary a limp. It was Sooooooooooo bad. Oh. And I guess we’re to assumre King finds out off camera that his employee was killed by psycho chick.

Other than that, it was pretty good! Hahaha…yikes!

Ted King…why oh why, lol, would you “star” in this? Did you read the script before you agreed??? It was so beyond bad, so dumb, so frustrating to watch…just stayed with it for King ( whose role was beyond idiotic).

This is obviously an emergency! Ted needs to check in to GH asap. Please???

HAHAHA, after reading your responses, I suppose you may be right! All very good and valid points! For some reason, unlike the other LMN movies, this one kept my interest. Maybe it was Kate Mansi. But, yes, the plot was well, lackluster..

I did see the previews for it so I already knew that was her.Lifetime has a lot of movies with Days stars in them ,for instance I saw Nicole in one, Ben and what is her name Nicole’f friend there ,she was in a movie get this with the guy who played Ben,It was called I know where Lizzie is.No it is not about Lizzie Borden although I wish it was …lol. Even at Christmas I believe Daniel was in a movie called Christmas and Handcuffs that was a really good movie. I wonder if some of these actors actually have a contract with the Litetime network.I love lifetime movies anyway and this one with Kate looks to be good sorry I missed it but I know it will be on again …I hope she comes back to Days to,but didn’t they already find a actress to replace her.Days needs to get its act in gear ,it has been way to slow and boring ugh I say bring back Eve,the stories are way to boring as of late. I can’t even sit through an entire episode lately nothing is happening,Days please get new writers,make this show good again

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
