Kristian Alfonso Says ‘Days Of Our Lives’ Is No Longer The Show ‘As I Know It’

I love her saying in one of the other articles that she received texts from cast members who she thought didn't even care about her but got her and that everything she did was for the betterment of the show. Such a narcissistic cow.

'It’s time for me to start a new chapter professionally. The time has come.”

Honey, the time was three decades ago when your name wasn't attached to a 60-year old body.

Maybe she was going to be let go, maybe they are just letting her save face by saying she quit. Anyone know?

Fuck you Pillar! You ruined my show.

R4--I think you've hit the nail on the head. They were asking her to take a hiatus for a few months and telling her she would have a big storyline when she returned. They'd then have no problem working around her not returning.

So she figured she could take this chance to pursue her dream of starring in a revival of "Spring Awakening."

by Anonymousreply 607/27/2020

She gets 5 months off and the opportunity for a new story and a brand new love interest. What else does she have going on? I’m assuming that she’s set financially. Unless one of the other soaps offers her a role, she’s sort of limited at this point. Does she really want to start auditioning again? Off choice.

Days of Our Lives gots nothin’ on the soap opera that is my Facebook timeline.

Now she will have time to get that wrinkled Chicken neck ironed out

by Anonymousreply 907/27/2020

They probably told her they would t be having her back any time soon and have a few ideas for a future storyline. Maybe she read between the lines. She’s known as one of the worst people to work with on the show. She demands firings and got one person fired for doing gay porn. She may have been part of the gang of 3 who didn’t want a black Roman writing for her. She literally wants them to bow to her.

Thank you, r10. I feel more justified in always hating this show because she was its star.

[quote]She demands firings and got one person fired for doing gay porn.


by Anonymousreply 1107/28/2020

R11, I can’t remember the guy’s name off the top of my head. It was discussed here. He wasn’t the only one she demanded be fired. I think another one did something (maybe a little handsy) and demanded he be dismissed. Can’t blame her with that. Her comments about people seeing that she was doing things for the betterment of the show just goes to show how she believed she was running things. Now she makes bitchy comments on her way out. Why am I not surprised? Totally unprofessional.

Now Claire can get pregnant and Hope will be great grandmother before she's 60.

by Anonymousreply 1307/28/2020

Jeff Griggs is the ex-gay porn star Alfonso supposedly had fired. He denies that story.

I think Alfonso's ego was bruised by the news she was being written off for 4-5 months. That, coupled with the fact that soap production is now closer in spirit to an assembly-line job than a creative endeavor, sent her packing.

by Anonymousreply 1407/28/2020

At one point Alice and Tom were Great Great Grandparents.

KA has held that show hostage for years. Now she's finally gone. Bye. Neither Dee nor I will miss her.

by Anonymousreply 1507/28/2020

There was a time when she was a full on diva. She banned a particular writer from the set because she didn't like something she wrote. Back then Days was the darling of the soap press - they sold covers. From what I heard the writer told the show "well if she wants me to write bad things about her I have plenty I can choose from," and she suddenly was allowed back on the set and guess who became her BFF?

by Anonymousreply 1607/28/2020

Where is the Jeff Griggs porn?

by Anonymousreply 1707/28/2020

R16, if that's a Hinsey story, I don't believe it. Hinsey is a liar and a suckup.

Didn't KA make the show feature her jewelry? That way she could push it in interviews and home shopping?

by Anonymousreply 1807/28/2020

I get why she is unhappy. The writing for her character has not been good. But she didn’t come across great here.

by Anonymousreply 1907/28/2020

But let's be honest. When was the last time Hope had a decent story? I'll say Princess Gina back in 1999. I think people liked her and Patrick Lockhart. But she has the Genie Francis problem. She was the half of a supercouple that couldn't survive without the other half. And watch Frank bring her over to GH to add to the bloat of that cast.

by Anonymousreply 2007/28/2020

Maybe she just got tired of starving herself. After she quit, she probably went right to Vons and filled up her cart with ice cream, Pop Tarts, Pringles etc.

by Anonymousreply 2107/28/2020

It was sad watching her pretend to eat that pizza with Rafe last month.

by Anonymousreply 2207/28/2020

R20 I agree. The original Princess Gina storyline should not have worked on paper, but she definitely made it work. The show set a mood with great background music and exotic hairstyles for her and endless conversations about the compact. And she worked it, even the infamous submarine sex with John.

She hasn’t had a good storyline since then.

by Anonymousreply 2307/28/2020

I really hope she just takes a break and after 6 months or so gets great offer to come back. KA/Hope is a big part of Days, but yes, the character never did thrice without Bo

by Anonymousreply 2407/28/2020

I’ve always heard she was a cunt-what are some prime examples of her cuntery? Did she shove Frances Reid? Get fucked by Jason Brooks? Get a gaggle of makeup room gays fired?

by Anonymousreply 2507/28/2020

R24, hopefully the fourth time is a charm, without Bo.

I hope so, she's a beautiful woman but she'd look so much better with some weight on her.

She was quite zaftig when she first joined the show.

by Anonymousreply 2707/28/2020

This is a budget issue so they can have other actors and MOSTLY so that she can have a major nip tuck like Eileen Davidson did. She’ll be back but it will be awhile and she’ll have a new hairstyle and makeup. Davidson just did the same thing and just started showing up on RHOBH.

by Anonymousreply 2807/28/2020

IIRC when she left during the 90s she had a lot of things to say about the show and are jell. She said he had called her fat (which if true is awful) and she hated working with him and didn’t expect to come back she did a few years later. I think she will eventually come back at least for a final swan song if the show ever gets canceled.

by Anonymousreply 2907/28/2020

Never cared much for her.

This really is DAYS' final season or so. I get the same stink from all of this that was on the last year or so of Guiding Light. They are cutting budgets left and right to try to stay alive, but the cuts will eventually kill it.

by Anonymousreply 3107/28/2020

DAYS production values are already shit, but I think the show is still pretty good in spite of that. I can’t fathom how they’re going to cut production values even lower and survive though.

by Anonymousreply 3207/28/2020

I don't agree that this is Days final season. I think they are making smart choices to keep the show on the air. I wish they would write the show "smaller". Which basically means write the show for the budget they have and not like it's 1994 when they had shitloads of money. I think all the shows could use a reset.

by Anonymousreply 3307/28/2020

r16 not a Hinsey story. I forget the woman's name but she wrote a book on Days I think.

What happened to her baby swap storyline?

by Anonymousreply 4607/29/2020

Something similar happened years ago when the cast was told to either accept pay cuts or be taken off contract in order to cut down the show's budget and when some actors refused to do either, they were let go with quite a few invited back - and returning to their roles. As for Alfonso, Hope hasn't had a good story line in some time and is rarely seen interacting with very many other characters. Her most recent arc as Princess Gina wasn't very good and some other stories in which she was involved were equally bad if not worse. Among the latter was the Hope and Aiden relationship which also led to Hope's daughter Ciara being raped her potential stepbrother Chase, a story which is still universally hated by Days fans to this day.

R47 one of those times led to DL icon "Dee Dee" Hall coming on here to rant about "that fucker Roy Corday" firing her.

It has some of my favorite comments:

"Deidre Hall, here. OMG... guys... I can't stop crying. Not sure if you all heard, but the sand in the hourglass of the grand dame of daytime television is soon running out."

"Dee's good friends Jane Elliot and Lezlie Charleson must be quaking in their boots. If somelike Dee, who is only marginally talented, could be fired, I'm sure their days are numbered too. —Allie Sweeney, star of Days"

"Whenever Marlena gasps on the show, I imagine she must be thinking about Jane Elliot going down on her."

"Drake (sniff) Hogestyn (snort) is (whisper) going (gasp) too. He's the worst actor in the history of television."

"Kristian Alfonso must be really cheap since she doesn't have to eat anything, so no craft services costs with her."

R17, IMDb just goes right ahead and puts his porn and non-porn work all in the same filmography, cheerfully mentioning all of his stage names. He worked with Joey Stefano, Matt Gunther and others back in the day.

It wasn't Hinsey. Some of the soap mags are (were?) owned by publishing houses that also publish the tabloids.

Good for that reporter whoever it was. Some of the soaps took more of a 'keep your friends close and you're 'enemies' closer' attitude.

No one was going to trash a set that they had access to.

Let's face it. Reckell had chemistry with Chappell, Rinna, and that actress who played Emmy something. played by Susan somebody? I think she was also on OLTL.

KA's been paired with Galen, Cosgrove and Brody Hutzler and they all failed.

In five months there could be a vaccine, I'd grab the vacation and then hope for the best.

no pun intended.

Have they still got Dr Marlena on the show?

How in the hell she can have any patients left after all her constant disappearances, being in prison for serial murder, having a family of criminals and having amnesia that blocked out having a husband and kid is not a good look for a mental health professional.

Interior: Day... Marlena's Office

Receptionist: May I help you?

Patient: I'm here for my 1:00 with Dr. Evans...

Receptionist: I'm sorry, but Dr. Evans is currently locked in a golden bird cage. We're not sure when she will be seeing patients again.

Patient: Isn't there anyone you can refer me to in the meantime? What about Dr. Laura Horton. I heard she's good.

Receptionist: Dr. Horton is no longer on staff. She is currently in Florida treating her granddaughter's dissociative identity disorder.

Patient: Isn't it unethical for a doctor to treat a close family member?

Receptionist: Ummm...

Hold on Receptionist and then...

r51 Soap Opera Magazine was owned by the National Enquirer - it got sold to a German company that owned Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly.

At the time Soap Opera Magazine came around - SOD and Weekly both were Days heavy. They would have 10 times as many covers for Days than any other show. when SOM came around they were more open to giving covers and features to other shows. Suddenly the other magazines were losing stories and scoops to SOM because they were giving covers to other shows.

by Anonymousreply 5807/31/2020

Days got so many covers because it was guaranteed to sell. Someone explained it on here way back in the day during the soap thread craze. It was Days, General Hospital, and I think AMC covers that were always the biggest sellers for the soap mags.

The majority SOD covers are quite funny now. It 's like they have one head shot of each daytime actor on file and just mix and match and move heads around in various quantities. The recent cover featuring KA solo because of her grand exit is like a rarity.
