June Bugs The Hell Out Of DOOL...

The other thread has been paywalled.

Nicole said yes to Rafe while the Vatican said no to Eric.

Sonny couldn't smell the cookies but turned up his nose to the fruit.

Leo snatched Nancy's frau wig in record time but got caught red handed by a cop.

I wonder if Will have a similar reaction to the article about claiming that Leo and Sonny fucked as Sonny did when it was exposed that Will and Paul fucked.

I wonder if Dena's head exploded seeing Ron undue her big homophobic story and start bringing gays back to Days. I also wonder if she was jealous that none of her pet characters ever got mentioned outside of soap media as having a hot sex scene while the Will Horton and Paul Horita 🏨 was included on a list of hot sex scenes.

Do any think the rumors about Cin leaving, Abby dying and Chad supposedly coming out as bisexual are true or are they somebody's fan fiction over at DR or FC? Plus where is the link to supposed photos of Rob in a suit as Alexander K.

I know Albert has been very desperate to keep Rob from going anywhere, else especially another soap and because he loves the character of Ben and Rob too.

R4 Cin is most likely leaving with this coming up: "A life-changing gift arrives from Hope and it leaves them with a big decision to make about their lives and their future." The other stuff about RSW sounds like wishful thinking, but who knows... it's a soap. It doesn't need to make sense.

[quote] Someone over at SC think Will is starting to turn into a frigid bitch like his grandma Marlena.

Will is obviously tiring of his gay phase and that's why he's acting like that.

They should think about doing a short arc where Will reconnects with Mia, dumps Sonny, and leaves town with ex-.

Maybe Massey could convince his real life girlfriend to play NuMia. She wouldn't have to do much acting - just stand there, looking sexy, blonde and beautiful.

R141... oh please, his bicep looked okay, made better by the blood pumping into his bicep by wearing a short very very tight black t-shirt and the camera angle... the rest of his body is meh... and the face? he looks like he's 15 (and trying to act macho and older and doing it badly!).... I see guys in real life at my gym and around town who are way way handsomer (and built) then he is and around this actor's age.... AND he can't act..

So as i stated in all of hollwood, they couldn't find a handsomer, better built, more experienced actor that Boatman? really? REALLY?

If i passed him on the street, i wouldn't give him a 2nd look that's for sure.. .. Remember when soap opera stars (and supposed hunks) were drop dead gorgeous and pretty?...

I also find a change in Chandler’s performance - the spark he had previously seems to have disappeared. I say that as a longtime fan of his.

R267 There was a rumor saying that Josh couldn't stand Dena. Another rumor claims that Dena went to higher ups and placed all of the blame for the show's problems on Josh and got him fired. The near constant low ratings, the backlash over the necktie killer and dark storylines in general, the backlash over killing Will, Ciara's rape on the Horton couch,problematic Jigsaw,ruining Aiden,etc....

Dena wanted FOWBF and Maga Gabi to be the new "power couple" of Salem and the new face of Days.

R270 What do you expect if he only plays Will for a few days every three months or so? Of course, there would be a big disconnect. He wouldn't know what the heck is happening in all the plots and there would be very little time to get up to speed. Now if the show wants Will back full time and Chandler couldn't commit the time then I agree a recast should be considered.

R274 Alison Sweeney checks in and out of Days here and there and she never phones it in and is always connected when she returns. That’s bullshit that Chandler is disconnected because he’s only on every so often. Chandler looks and acts bored. He should be recast if he can’t commit to the material. Beth Maitland on Y&R is another actor who comes and goes for short stays and she is always engaged and sells the material while looking interested. It can be done.

Thanks for the Dena clarification. I remember she came on board after Eileen left again in 2015. Man, the show became dark a moody as hell. Serial killings, darkly lit sets, and trying to push the Hernandez clan non-stop.

If they attempted to recast Will again after Chandler. You would have folks here and on Twitter going after said actor no matter who it is. Just like what happened to the last actor who came after Chandler. I'm not sure there's an actor who would want to deal with any of that so it's probably best to leave that alone.

Anyways, ZT at least looks sharp in a suit. There should be a scene where Will undresses him before tumbling into bed.

by Anonymousreply 293June 10, 2022 8:43 PM

Days was never a "corporate/workplace type soap" so I'm not really sure why Ron writes those stories. Titan was used as a vehicle for Victor to legitimize his shady dealings and as a backdrop for things like the Face of the 90s campaign and for John and Marlena to be on the board so they can fuck or for Kate to find out that Billy has her manuscript. It was never about real business and corporate takeovers like Y&R and ATWT.

And this Dimera Enterprises bullshit, I don't now where that came from. Stefano was about long lost kids, evil schemes to rule the world, and dressing up in funny disguises to try and get Marlena. There was never any legitimate Dimera corporation that I remember and I've been watching this show for a long, long, long time.

Oh, who cares if Abby is dead? The character has left the show before. Characters have died before. Why is Abby such a special deal?

Reading his interview, Ron C obviously didn't want ManZi back "She probably wouldn't be able to invest full-time" or something like that - he had no interest in that cunt coming back.

Amy Steel IS Abby now, so, since she has decided to be with her growing family, killing off Abby is the way to go.

DiMera Enterprises was certainly never a part of the story in the 1980s when the DiMera clan first appeared. Wasn't ever mentioned in the 90s either. Likewise, Cassadine Industries on GH was not part of the story in the 1980s or 1990s either.

I think the first time I heard mention of DiMera Enterprises was about 10-12 years ago. I think it was first mentioned around the time that Stephano was trying to get to know his newly discovered son Chad. Maybe a little earlier.

As for Cassadine Industries, I think that was first mentioned about the time Valentin Cassadine appeared in 2016.

Even if this wasn't a soap opera where you kind of have to just go with it, there's some wild shit going down in jails.
