Y&R and DAYS Summer Stories: Men Without Shirts! – Watch the Videos!

Courtesy CBS

So it’s summer.  It’s hot outside, and when it’s hot outside soap opera hunks strip half naked! And, the summer of 2012 looks no different!

Over in Genoa City on The Young and the Restless, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Neil (Kristoff St. John) play basketball shirtless while Carmine (Marco Dapper) steps out of the shower for an in awe Abby (Marcy Rylan).  Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria, Chloe and Kevin, Cane and Lily, and Adam and Chelsea, get shall-we-say cozy!  All of this action takes place in this week’s CBS summer promo.

Over in Salem, it’s the couples that non-are-to-pleased about that are featured in the new NBC summer promo including a shirtless Rafe (Galen Gering) with Carrie (Christie Clark), a shirtless Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian) doing it on the desk with Nicole (Arianne Zuker) and of course a shirtless EJ (James Scott)!

So after the jump watch “Men without Shirts” and let us know who is your favorite! And, what do you think about the couples shown in the spots?  Who would you like to see more of? And, who would you like to see less of? And we don’t mean clothes!  Let us know!

Am a Days fan, but these guys are not my favs. Too much exposure! And I don’t mean their bodies. We see way too much of EJ and Rafe.
Would like to see a whole lot more of Jack and Bo, before they are gone, and I always want to see WAY MORE of my favorite Salem man….John!

Shirts or no shirts, I have zero interest in seeing these couples on Days of our Lives. The couple I want to see the most is the one they won’t show, Will and Sonny. Thanks to the talents of both Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, and the fantastic chemistry they share, WilSon has the potential to be daytime’s next super couple. Sadly, Days seems too cowardly to move forward with on on-screen romance for these much loved characters. It’s disappointing and aggravating, especially since this show is running out of time. I really wish they would grow a pair, before it’s too late! I want WilSon now!

That’s great news!!! It can’t happen soon enough! I really hope they do their love story justice and treat them fairly and honestly! There is great potential for WilSon and it would be a real shame to waste it! Also glad to hear that Judi will have more screen time! Love her!

These men should always be shirtless, regardless that it’s summer lol.

But God Carmine on Y&R, EJ and Rafe on Days have amazing bodies, they should always be shirtless. Daniel on Days may need to go but he has a hot, hairy body!

Well I will always defer to the character Nicholas Cassidine formerly on GH..his body was magnificent! No other male character can compare.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
