No nominations for Crystal Chappell and Hillary B Smith as best actress/drama?? No nomination for Elizabeth Keifer as best supporting actress/drama?? WTF!

It’s mind boggling that Jessica Leccia did not get a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Jessica was excellent in EVERY episode of season 2 just as she was in season one. Leccia should have gotten a nomination. I’m going to give this awards show a miss.

Congratulations to Venice the Series for its well deserved nomination for Best Soap Opera. Bravo Crystal for writing a compelling story that made Season 2 must watch programming. Congratulations to Nadia Bjorlin and Jordan Clarke of Venice the Series for their supporting actress/actor nominations. Jordan was amazing. The Colonel’s walk to the mail box to send Gina’s letter to Ani was one of the most moving moments I have ever seen. Just one of many moments for him this season. I have never seen Nadia more raw as an actress. I agree with the first poster, I would have added Hillary B. Smith. Crystal was also fantastic but I think this year the nomination for best soap is more a credit to her talent than any other category nomination. Such a huge improvement from Season 1 to Season 2. And although they had their best material in the finale, Wes Ramsey and Gina Tognoni were also good this year.

Melissa Reeves Talks Jack’s Return; Paul Telfer & Greg Rikaart Dish On Xander and Leo’s Rendezvous On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, long-running star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) sits down to chat with host Michael Fairman about the shocking return of Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) to Salem, and how Jennifer is trying to cope with the believed-to-be-dead love-of-her-life who has come to town with no memory of her … or his past!

Reeves chats on: how she found out Matt Ashford was coming back to DAYS, how important those New Year’s Eve scenes were, her on-screen and off-screen relationship with Salem arch-rival, Kassie DePaiva (Eve), and a look back at Jack and Jenn’s memorable wedding and their vows decades ago.  Missy also talks about the love of her life, Scott Reeves (Ex-Ryan, Y&R, Ex-Steve, GH Ex-Jake, DAYS), and their new coffee business in Nashville. Missy also takes tie to remember the late Frances Reid and MacDonald Carey as her on-screen grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, and the importance of carrying on the tradition of the Horton family to this day on-air.

Later, Paul Telfer (Xander) and Greg Rikaart (Leo) talk with Fairman all about last Friday’s cliffhanger, where Leo jumps on Xander for sex in exchange for providing information to Xander on Sonny and Will, so Xander can become CEO of Titan.  But will Xander go through with it?  The two talk about playing these opportunistic, bad boy characters.

Then, in a fun game, Paul and Greg are presented with some of the hilarious dialog from head writer, Ron Carlivati and his team from recent airshows, where the podcast tests their muscle memory to see ig they recall which was the correct line of dialog said by Leo, Xander, or Victor!

The podcast is currently streaming live on NBC.com here, and is available starting today for download via iTunes and all major pod platforms, so you can listen anytime, anywhere.

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
