The time is upon us Days of our Lives fans!  This week, Alison Sweeney departs Salem in her role as Sami after over two decades of playing one of the most central roles in the history of the iconic soap opera.

NBC gave Alison, and her fans, a special send-off with this touching video package complete with retrospective clips.   In it, Alison shares that she has been a fan of Days of our Lives all of her life, and to find out she would be coming to the show to play the daughter of Deidre Hall (Marlena) was something she will never forget! And that she secretly hoped that she would play the villain on the show, which is something she definitely got to experience!

Alison also shares some of her favorite scenes including when Sami bitch-slapped Nicole (Arianne Zucker) after finding out about her duplicity with baby Sydney, and the more recent standalone episode where Sami finds out that EJ (James Scott) slept with Abigail, even though that turned out to be a nightmare of EJ’s!  And Alison talks about all of her leading men on DAYS, and how she was very lucky that each and every guy was wonderful to work with.  Later, in an emotional moment she talks about leaving the series and is finally saluted by some of her co-stars and some of her fans, as they wish Alison well as she moves forward with her life and her career!

Watch Alison Sweeney’s very personal farewell to DAYS video after the jump! Then share with us your favorite scenes of Alison’s time on the show, and who was your favorite all-time love interest for Sami?

It will seem strange without her but i wish AS well and i know she’ll make some future visits…very curious to see how the show performs without two of its powerhouse stars…i remember when Doug and Julie left and it took a little time to get used to but back then the show had other interesting characters and storylines…not so much this time mainly because of the boring Jordan storyline…with the exit of Ejami, the Jordan storyline shouldve been more front and center and holding viewers interest during major cast departures but its not and it may hurt the show… Read more »

Now that Chrishell Stause will be leaving DAYS, the boring and tedious storyline revolving Jordan and her many secrets will be quickly wrapped up. I watch DAYS mostly (if not only) for Eileen Davidson. I just love Kristen Dimera! I’ve never been a big fan of Ali Sweeny or EJami. I know they have many fans; but, we all have our favorites. I do think that the actress has done a great job leaving while paying respect to the character and all of the actors she has had major storylines with.

I’m going to miss this lady a lot. I wanted Sami to end up with Rafe in the end, so I’m sad that didn’t happen, but gosh…What great fun it’s been to watch Alison Sweeney work. All the best to her in whatever she decides to do next.

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.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

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.
