i so love wally kurth & have since he was on gh – meredith scott lynn is just as annoying as her character is……………….smh

ethel,
i love that you find me annoying. I find me annoying too at the end of a very long day of these interviews as well. i can barely watch me. we try and stay awake and have something to say. but being annoying to people like you who give people like me this much energy, is sort of fun. i can’t explain it. but it’s like i want to annoy you even more now.
happy new year.

thank you for your reply – have a happy new year meredith!

Wally is always a treat to watch and it’s great to see him as always so accepting of Sonny, however, he’s not the first truly accepting dad on soaps. Jon Hensley as Holden Snyder on ATWT always gets short shrift, I think. Granted, he was not Luke’s natural father, but when Luke came out, it was Holden who was a rock and continually at his side.

Even though it was only six years ago, the writing and the general attitudes have made such astonishing leaps forward that Justin and Sonny as far more compelling and realistic than anything we’ve seen before. Much of that is in the talent that Wally and Freddie Smith bring to the table, but we’d be remiss not to recognize Jon Hensley and Van Hansis who blazed this trail.

PS – All these videos have been a lot of fun!

Michael – great interview with Wally and Meredith. He’s great and she’s funny! Love the fact that Justin was so accepting of Sonny and Will’s relationship. Can’t wait until we get to see all of these exciting storylines.

I have watched all of your interviews and loved them all!!! Surprised to hear that you grew up In Miwaukee. I live 35 miles south. Yay for the Midwest!

What a great interview with Wally and Meredith!!! I have seen Wally interviewed before and not surprised how nice and funny he is, but Meredith is hilarious!! Could listen to her for hours!! She is so witty and just a riot. Thanks so much, Michael, you are so great for the world of soap lovers!!

Loved this interview with Wally Kurth! Wally is an amazing actor and Justin has always been my fav character on Days. I really hope Days gives some great stuff to do in 2014! Thanks for doing this interview 🙂

‘One take Wally’ lol..fun interview, i love Meredith’s voice, i just hope they will flesh out her character Ann, right now she is too one-note, too nasty for no good reason imho..but her character and Meredith acting is fun and good so i am all for her to stay on Days..just make the character more fleshed out. Justin, i want more screentime and stories for him. I would love a real friendship to be built between Ej and Justin and to see them working together, they would make a great and fun team of lawyers..take note writers !

Love Wally and so wish he would come back and visit Port Charles as Ned!!! He should be able to do both.

I love to watch Meredith but she does need to stop talking and interrupting when someone else is talking in the interviews. It is very distracting and makes some people feel negative toward HER, not her character. It’s just not polite. Love the interviews, tho.

sorry diane… i’ll try and do better next time.

We all have problems in that area at times. Some other shows are worse and that’s why I don’t watch them.

I love me Meredith! People either love her or love to hate her character. I for one absolutely love her! She’s as cool in real life as she is on the show. I think her character is freaking hilarious and gets to say what we are all thinking. Like Jennifer is never really working or that she gets special treatment cause she a Horton and I’m like yes tell her off! Love when Ann goes off on someone I’m like laughing so dang hard. I totally get her character and she’s not mean just to be mean she just finds certain people annoying and I love it! Def would love to see more ethnic groups represented on the show. Would love for her character to be given a back story! Btw Wally is still sexy and he’s the reason I started watching general hospital when he went and worked on that show!

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
