BREAKING NEWS: Corday FIRES Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans!

Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans have been FIRED from Days of Our Backstage Disaster. Wow, just wow, Ed Scott's gone, Drake and Dee are gone, Thaao's gone, now Steve and Mary Beth but... the Fi-Core folks are still employed to dismantle another day. Honestly how do Ken Corday, Gary Tomlin and Dena Higley sleep at night? Wait, on second thought, I know the answer to that, duh! It's likely akin to how the CEO's of the big U.S. automaker do, like rich, pillaging babies. Thanks mcasey11138 and thegreatescape for the tip!

Steve Johnson Listed in Mag's "Eye Patch" History

In the latest edition of New York magazine, Days of Our Lives character Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) is among those in the glossy's "Great Moments in Eye Patches." The list focuses on some of pop culture's iconic figures that sport the accessory and the impact of it. For Patch's return to Salem, the magazine states,

The eye patch is the least ridiculous thing about him. We say “is” because he returned from the grave and was reunited with Kayla in 2006.

Ouch! DAYS has finally gotten some press in mainstream media outside of the firing of the iconic duo of Drake Hogestyn (John) and Deidre Hall (Marlena), but Ken Corday and co still can't get any love. Guess it's true about the nasty little vixen known as Karma.

See what the magazine has to say about other characters sporting a patch: READ MORE

Thom Racina, the man who wrote the ratings juggernaut wedding of a couple of soap opera characters named Luke and Laura (Tony Geary and Genie Francis) on General Hospital, before moving on to Days of Our Lives, where he and fellow co-head writers Sheri Anderson and Leah Laiman continued the supercouple craze, penning lush, romantic storylines for Patch and Kayla (Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans), Bo and Hope (Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso), Shane and Kim (Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease) and John and Marlena (Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall), speaks exclusively to Daytime about the shocking ouster of Hogestyn and Hall.

Days of Our Lives: Who Will The Axe Fall On Next?

I can hear the blade being sharpened. The axe is about to fall, but who's head is on the chopping block? There's been plenty of rumour and innuendo. Take your pick. Who do you think will be the next to leave Days of Our Lives?

Days of Our Lives: Anniversary Tribute


November 8 marked 43 years of Days of Our Lives on our screens. I know lately we have been less than satisfied at what the show has had to offer, but to celebrate the rich history of the show, I felt the need to take a trip back down memory lane. Soaps have that effect on people. You get carried away to a place filled with fantasy and nostalgia - after all this is where it all began soaps. We hope one day our favourite shows will return to the landmark it once used to be. Big Sigh.

There are so many characters in this clip, too many to mention, but it's actually worth the 9 or so minutes. The scary thing about this, at the halfway mark, you actually begin to think of your age. I know I did anyway - a frightful experience. Ok, so I've just turned 30, but why in God's name can I remember things like Kimberly giving birth to Andrew in a stable just like it was yesterday. See, that's nostalgia for you. READ MORE

Days of Our Lives: Caption This...


At least, that's what it looks like Steve is saying to John in this screencap from Tuesday's episode of Days of Our Lives.  I can just hear Stefano saying 'I would help you Steve, but I have DiMinions for that."

LOL - what is your first reaction when you see this screencap?
