Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

Photo: NBC

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Methinks thou issued this statement because thou fans doth protest too much…
Good news!!

I am riding your same wavelength, James. Carlivati was under pressure —–the Ciara/Ben fans made their dusappointment clear.
I wonder, James—-will Claire and Ben hook up during Ciara’s absence? We had both agreed that they would commiserate and console each other to the point where the inevitable would happen? What then??
From what I’ve read, Ciara will be returning with a bundle of joy—

Thank you for your reply, Celia! I suppose you’ve seen Friday’s episode where Ben gives Claire flowers and, in her last scene, she stares at them wistfully. I had not heard anything about Ciara returning with a baby, although I believe your sources. Just as I believe Satan who knew in advance that Ciara and Theo would leave town together! My thought is that Ciara comes in, memory intact, and tries to stop the wedding of Ben and Claire. I just think that the Ciara and Ben fans would like some kind of happy reunion. Is that too much to… Read more »

Ciara having a baby is apparently on some of the YouTube rumor videos, but those are almost always wrong. I swear, somebody has set up some form of AI program to just generate the most random fan fiction rumors and present them as “spoilers”. Which never actually come to pass on screen. Logically, if Ciara had been pregnant with Ben’s child, their wedding was in late July. It’s now early May, so Ciara would be at full term, or would have already had the baby. She’s clearly not even visibly pregnant. Not to mention the various degrees of physical trauma… Read more »

Hello Satan! Thank you for the info on the YouTube rumor videos. And for providing logic involving a prospective Ciara pregnancy. And Lord knows, we can always expect logic from our beloved soap scribes…

Exactly—–I wrote as much, Satan. Yet, TPTB will concoct some sort of “unreality”.
Speaking of babies, I wonder if Abbi (sp) will be blamed for Gwen’s baby loss.
I would not put it past her to lie.

Satan
Guest

Pretty much everything about Gwen’s pregnancy has been a lie so far, so why wouldn’t she keep lying. Yeah, she was actually pregnant, but you can bet your soul that it was never Chad’s kid. I still say that he was too drunk to actually do the deed on New Year’s Evil, but he was also too drunk to remember NOT doing it, so when he woke up naked in her bed, he just jumped to conclusions, as anybody probably would have done in those circumstances. As to the origins of the fetus… I was going with the theory that… Read more »

OMG—you are so right !!!!—–never crossed my mind—but, yes—Chad and Gwen never did it!! Knowing Gwen’s deceitful trademark, this is not a stretch of the imagination.
Rolfe probably did just what you say—-unless the baby was Jake’s? No? I guess not.
As far as for a man not being able to “perform” when drunk?—hmmmm. Wouldn’t know. LOL —
I bet Rachel is a product of Rolfe, as well.
Abbi will need to leave soon— maternity leave. So, will she be off to the hoosegow or to the mental institution?

Thanks for asking, rayna! Ben gave flowers to Claire as an apology for trying to enlist her to distract Theo while he kidnapped Ciara, a plan he aborted.

What are you talking about? Where did I say the baby was Theo’s?–if, indeed, there is a baby.
Ciara will get her memory back —-as far as a baby ?—–(fallacious or not), who knows? It’s a soap. Twists and turns galore will be taken.
It would be ridiculous to assume Ciara was already pregnant when she left, for obvious reasons—–she was in hospital—-wouldn’t tests have shown just that? As I said ‘it’s a soap—-expect anything.

I was thrilled to see Thiara leave together.

This Devil loves the current version of Ciara, but even without the revolving door “recurring” status, I just don’t see any long term viability for her and Ben. ReRon’s failed attempt to redeem a serial killer on GH dragged on and on and on 6 years after ReRon himself was gone, and only recently resolved, to the protestation of hundreds of fake accounts who never posted on any soap board before then. I’d really love to read the IP logs of these posts on this board and others for the true picture of the sudden “Frodd fan club” cult. Problem… Read more »

If they could redeem Luke Spencer after he raped Laura in 1979 then they can redeem Ben.

Satan

What Luke did is comparable to what Stefan did to Abigail. It was rape, but not in the violent sense, such as what happened to teenage Elizabeth on GH. Or Todd’s infamous gang rape on OLTL (didn’t watch the show, but you can’t help but hear about that storyline). And GH went back and forth for decades on how to categorize what happened at the old Campus Disco that night. You can argue one way or the other over the ambiguity of that act, but no such ambiguity exists with a guy who wraps a necktie around your throat and… Read more »

Yes, lose the lazy, non-creative writing. Kristen’s masks and island. When Ben mentioned the cabin the other day I got so annoyed. With all the fires, that cabin should be nothing but ashes right now. The DiMeras; he writes them too stupid to ever think to go search the tunnels when anyone goes missing…..hasn’t that family and their tunnels been on the DOOL canvas almost 40 years? Shouldn’t that be the first place they look?

The Ciara/Ben story has gone on lon enough. We’d like to see them finally get their happy ever after. I love Ben and don’t want you to take him back to what he was before. I think the viewers would be very disappointed.

That’s too bad. I had hoped we had seen the last of this moronic character and bad actress. Good riddance to Mr. Man-bun. When does a barely-functional child become a normal adult?

Are you calling Ciara s bad actress? She only delivers the lines she’s given. As far as Theo, he’s still a teenager trying to act like a grown up. The nerve of him trying to take another man’s wife away from him. He makes me sick!

Wow! I am so upset that Ciera is gone again! I’ve watched DOL since 1965, and this is a disastrous story line!! I’m assuming Ms Konefal is unhappy with something, and that’s why she keeps leaving?? It wouldn’t be so bad, but this story line has gone on for so long it’s beginning to get disgusting!

She chose to go on recurring last year, so they write her in when she’s available to come and work.

I hated it….what made Theo think he has the right to move in on a married woman. People should have supported Ben more. He is a good guy. Theo just moved in on her and had the gall to tell Ben what he should do. He was her husband. Theo had no right to assume what should be done. He was pushing Ciara to go against her marriage. WRONG WRONG WRONG and the writers should know better. And the man bun was awful. Theo is a good looking young man and should therefore enhance it.I liked him until he started… Read more »

“what made Theo think he has the right to move in on a married woman”??

Don’t forget…. Theo is a DiMera. It’s in his DNA. Grandpa Stefano is actually a little bit proud of him right now, for embracing his dark side, to some degree.

I thought for sure we were going to have an updated Bo & Hope w/Ciara & Ben I think that would be the best story line yet!!! They have been going through the same ups & downs that her mother & dad went through to stay together!!!

Theo acts like he owns Ciara and I was hoping Ben would punch his lights out. She’s married and Theo should have respected that!

I am so happy to hear she is coming back. I been waiting for the Ciara and Ben reunion to come. They have not had enough time. I always saw them as the next Bo and Hope couple. They need to have more time. You guys never gave them enough time and they have been through so much they must come back to one and another and have a baby together……

I am at the junkture of who cares and enough already! The Ben Ciara story has outworn it’s welcome and appeal for me. If Ben ever got together with Claire, that would be the end for me. If Ciara comes back pregnant we know she wasn’t a willing participant at some point while she was gone or she and Theo played house. It can’t be Ben’s, the timing isn’t right. All the SLs are crazy right now. I think the writers are sipping on some drink Dr. Rolf has concocted. Will have to come up with a good name for… Read more »

Well, considering what Dr. Rolf’s favorite hobby is (bringing people back from the dead) I’m guessing his favorite drink is the “Zombie”

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry to Appear in Final Season of FX’s ‘Pose’

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

The final batch of episodes bows on May 2, 2021, and Entertainment Weekly revealed that Harry will be part of the last season.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
