Days of our Lives returning Lisa Rinna (Billie Reed) appeared on last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live (Weeknights at 11PM EST on Bravo) with Bravo host and executive, Andy Cohen!

During the rapid-fire questioning of Cohen’s infamous segment “Plead the Fifth”  several startling revelations came to pass including one where Rinna indicated, and agreed with Cohen,  that she thinks that Joseph Mascolo (Stefano Dimera) is the worst actor on the NBC soap!  Plus, Lisa thinks reality show star, Taylor Armstrong (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) is most in need of a Lip Surgery reduction!

Then, Rinna spoke of what bugged her the most about Star Jones during their time together on Celebrity Apprentice!  Lisa stated, “The way she would breathe!”

Since the original post broke today, Lisa Rinna took to her twitter account after realizing she probably got herself in hot water with Joe Mascolo tweeting, “I think I’m Stefano’s next hit for sure! Yikes….”

Watch the video clip here of how Rinna answered the above, and let us know if you agree with any of it!

I love me some Lisa Rinna but I can’t believe she said Joe Mascolo was a bad actor. I think he is just getting older. I agree with her about Taylor needing lip reduction. I have not watched the video so I don’t know exactly what she said so I will watch it soon.

I don’t agree that Joseph is the worst actor on Days.

Currently, there’s no one that I think is really horrible on Days. When Ari Zuker first started, she wasn’t that good. I would have fired her, but she improved dramatically and I think she does a great job now. Kate Mansi wasn’t so hot in the beginning, but has improved as well. I think some of the regulars have days when they aren’t so hot, but overall, I’m happy with the acting quality.

Yes, Taylor A does need some lip help.

Star wasn’t as great on CA as she thought she was.

Look closely at the clip is seems like it has been edited and manipulated to serve it’s purpose to cause controversy. I would have to see the whole raw feed of that LisaR interview to trust what is implied.

Excuse me Lisa…Who are you to say Joe Mascolo is an awful actor? How could you try to belittle a fellow actor on Days?
Joe can run rings around Lisa…He hasn’t been on Days this long for nothing. Sorry, I just can’t believe she would say that. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

i cannot believe she said that!! i think she is a horrible actress!
joe is a legend and an amazing actor! he is in his 80’s and still bringing his “A” game!! In my honest opinion, I think Galen is one of the worst actors on the show and he hasn’t improved much. (i have studied acting)
I have no respect for Lisa. This was a unprofessional, rude and disrespectful comment. All I can say now is, “Dont let the door hit you on your way out!”

If you ever saw him on Dirty Soap, you’d realize he’s a genius actor!

Lisa misspoke. She meant to say herself.

Lisa Rinna is nothing but an attention seeker and always has been!

Such unkind remarks about others only make her look worse. How many years did she wait to get her own lips reduced? Complaining about someone breathing?

That’s not a very professional or polite thing to say about your fellow co-worker. Not only is it hurtful, it’s categorically wrong. He’s a very soapy actor. That doesn’t mean he’s a bad actor.

I do agree with her about Starr Jones though. Man she breathes loudly.

Joe Mascolo is not the worst actor. Maybe she joking. I think the worst actor is someone who just came back to the show and his acting hasn’t improved over the years. Not talking about Matt Ashford or the guy who plays Austin.

Mo

Lucas?

Lew

Naw, the actor who plays Lucas is pretty good. I am referring to an older actor who was on the canvas in the 80’s, 90’s and early 00’s. I can’t help but laugh when this guy recites his lines!

Doug? John Aniston?

OMG…, Barbara! I NEVER heard U talk like this… It must be getting contagious on here, LOL with U picking up on some of other’s bad habits telling peeps off on here. LOL Well it’s not bad, bc Ur commenting about Lisa Rinna, and not speaking to anyone direct. LOL But we all really enjoy one another on this site. We may disagree (but just like family) we tell one another to GET A GRIP and we move on and forget it. Your Todd is back, focus on that. Lisa Rinna is all hype and over-rated. I posted that somewhere. She’s an attention seeker. She tries too hard. Hey if it works for her, so be it. I’m not into her. She was ‘over the top’ on Dancing w/the Stars. Quite un-professional for her to say her co-worker can’t act. Her lips PROBABLY can’t kiss, Ut oohhh. I’m being bad now. But why would she be talking about anyone’s lips (Taylor Armstrong-Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). Has she looked in the mirrow? That’s not cool. Lisa, I’m surprised at you BC you are too visual around Hollywood for these type of mishaps, and U don’t have ‘ THAT MUCH ‘ Star power for your statements not to cause a backlash/backlisted affect. Guard your Ego, Lisa!

I just erased, wiped out everything I just wrote ,I dont like lisa renna ,trout mouth ,I did get into a war with words with alexa again ,her and her fancy words she left her mark at a few places ,go there and you will see start at the top,its at ,breaking news,39th daytime emmy acting pre nominations announced ,you havent posted there yet,there is alot of interesting posts .back to lisa who does she think she is?taylor armstrong ,thats her name her lips are nasty to, but for one big lip lady to tell another big lipped women what to do with there lips is stupid ,she is a self centered trollop I dont think she can act,shes also a ex playboy bunny girl,so pretty much everything is fake with her,looks like you dont like her either.and I agree she is very overrated .

I googled Taylor Armstrong last night. Her lips aren’t as bad as Lisa Rinna’s! Taylor’s lips are WIDE across her face and CERTAINLY not a HUGE as Lisa’s, LOL. Some pictures with Taylor’s lips don’t look so bad (just wide across her face) BUT Lisa’s lips come out at U in her pictures BC they are so FULL and PLUMP. Well she wants attention so bad and she got them with those lips of her’s. And she has some nerve speaking about Star Jones breathing. The woman has asma, and had problems with her breathing (on top of that) over the year’s because of her weight issue she had. A person can’t help the way the breath of ALL things…. Obviously Lisa ISN’T a good actor BECAUSE if she was, she would of known to AVOID those questions about her co-star and the rest. So that itself makes Joe Mascolo a BETTER actor than she altogether.

She’ a silly, little tart who will do anything for press, she always has been. I’m not happy to see her back at days, so she was on thin ice with me to start with. She better stop stomping her feet before that ice breaks. Her best bet would be to stay out of the press and keep her trap shut.

barbara t

i agree ,I just saw her on days of our lives and if she said she got her lips deflated shes not being honest because those lips of hers are still freaking huge.I hope she does go through the ice.and doesnt stay on dool for long.

I saw Lisa and her lips today on DOOL. Her lips still appear overly inflated and deformed. If she had reduction surgery, she could stand to have it done again. I can’t believe she has the nerve to suggest other women should have corrective surgery when she looks the way she does.

Joe Mascolo is a great actor. Where are you coming from with this. He is from the old school. Best villan on TV.
We have been watching him since 1981, since he first step foot in Salem, and we haven’t stop watching because of him, not because of you!
I”ve lost respect for you for saying such a STUPID thing.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
