DAYS’ Joe Mascolo on Lisa Rinna: “Saying Taylor Should Have Her Lips Reduced, Calling Me Worst Actor on DAYS is Sort of Like The Pot Calling The Kettles Black!”

Lord, this mess is getting better than any soap opera on TV! Days of Our Lives' patriarch Joe Mascolo (Stefano) has fired back at onscreen stepdaughter Lisa Rinna (Billie) for dissing both him and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong recently on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.

While playing host Andy Cohen's game "Plead The Fifth," Rinna agreed that "Stefano DiMera" aka Mascolo, was the worst actor in DAYS' history. She also said RHOBH's Armstrong would be the one person she would suggest have a lip reduction surgery, similar to the one Rinna underwent.

Here's Mascolo's response to Soap Opera Digest:

 "Lisa saying that Taylor should have her lips reduced and calling me the worst actor on DAYS is sort of like the pot calling the kettles black!

Oh SNAP! Mascolo done went IN on Rinna! For her part, Rinna did tweet an apology for dissing Mascolo. In the words of Rodney King, can't we all just get along — in Horton Square?

    At the risk of sounding mean and superficial: Lisa Rinna needs to go to Jiffy Lube and get them to remove all that air from her lips and cheeks! There…I said it!

    #Team Mascolo!!!!! ;) :D

    Lisa looks a hot mess and her acting, based on the previews that I have seen, is a hot mess as well! Is it too late for them to bring back Julie Pinson?

    Every time I see your avatar, it reminds me how beautiful Victoria Rowell is. If she were to come back to Y&R, the show would improve leaps and bounds! You are also right when you said that Lisa Rinna looks a HOT MESS! I can not stand her.

    Yes, Victoria was, and is, beautiful………and NATURAL! She looks like a REAL woman……….and has aged gracefully and fabulously! But I have kinda accepted the fact that she will never return to Y&R! :~

    I personally think Joe is one of the best actors ever on Days. From his tireless attention to that accent, to how he attends to each and every move that Stefano makes, he has crafted one of daytimes most beloved and enduring villains ever. One of my favorite things is that Joe is letting Stefano age. From his lapses into italian under durress to his portrayal of the moments of low blood sugar, I am always fascinated to watch him. Why would one pick on a person who is so involved with keeping a character fresh and interesting, when there are so many people out there that just phone in their scenes unless they are in front burner postition?
    Coming from the Days family she does, bad acting has been a staple for them.

    Go Team Rinna.
    Go Team Mascolo.

    I think Lisa looks great, and I can see why Harry Hamlin is always smiling. She needs those lips, they are so awesome, and the lips of fantasies.

    Would be great to see ol Dru back on the Y&R. Never happen. Sad, because when she went over the cliff, it wasn’t that expected. Nobody crazy like Sheila was stalking her, or anything like that.

    Joe Mascalo is wrong its not like the pot calling the kettle black, cuz he can act circles around her and several other of the Days actors. I really hope they fire Lisa Rinna for this, Days is much better off without her big fake @$$ lips.

    This is the woman who, when they discussed a potential MELROSE PLACE revamp, lobbied in a most lowly way to return to play a character she believed was so crucial to the success of that program. In all essence, the only infamy that surrounded her character of Taylor McBride was that the role was originally cast with Hunter Tylo; nothing Rinna did, as a RECAST, on that Gen X phenom compared to what stars: (in alphabetical order) Josie Bissett, Marcia Cross, Kristin Davis, Laura Leighton, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Daphne Zuniga and special guest star Heather Locklear as Amanda, were already doing. Rinna is shady. As for Joseph Mascalo, he is a gentleman who in his prime, and past it, has created a legacy characer for the show DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Apparently no matter what Stefano has done, people love him because of Mascalo’s charm and let’s face it dark, rugged sexiness he contributes towards playing the diabolical tycoon.

    This is getting Days some serious publicity, which is probably the only silver lining to hiring someone with a reality show mentality: They’ll do anything for attention.

    Maybe Lisa should insult John Aniston next so that his daughter Jennifer and her BFF Chelsea Handler can go ballistic on her a**.
