Should Days of Our Lives Go There With Marlena and Victor? (POLL)




Maggie Horton Kiriakis (Suzanne Rogers) is starting to get a bit suspicious about her hubby Victor's (John Aniston) involvement with Maggie's old pal Marlena (Deidre Hall) on Days of Our Lives. Of course, Vic and Doc's relationship is innocent enough—they're simply trying to prevent Brady (Eric Martsolf) from marrying a sociopath—but there's no denying a surprising chemistry between the senior citizen co-conspirators! 

Should Days of Our Lives explore a romance for Victor and Marlena?

Suzanne Rogers Dishes 40 Years on Days of Our Lives




Days of Our Lives matriarch Suzanne Rogers will hit quite the milestone on July 13. On that date, Rogers will celebrate 40 years as lovable, busybody Maggie Simmons Horton Kiriakis. TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan spoke with the Emmy-winning actress about her longevity in Salem and some of the wackiest storylines her alter ego was involved in.


TV Guide Magazine: What do you remember about your audition for Days?

Rogers: When I was doing my screen test, Susan Flannery [then playing Laura] walked through the control booth and said to the producers, "Well, if you don't pick her for the part, y'all are crazy!" And then she walked out the other door. [Laughs] Don't you love it?  Maggie was such a wonderful character and really different for daytime. Her parents were killed in an auto accident and she was in the back seat and suffered a really severe back injury. They didn't want me in a wheelchair because everyone would have to sit down to do scenes with me, so I spent my first two and a half years of the show on crutches, until Maggie had miracle surgery. They had me running a household, cooking meals, setting the table, cleaning house — all on crutches. Physically, it was very tricky. Thank God they hired a dancer! READ MORE

How a Teen Terror Continues to Save The Worst Couple Ever on Days of Our Lives




NBC's Days of Our Lives continues to be 40 minutes of sudsgasmic fun. Jennifer Horton's (Melissa Reeves) devilish son, JJ (Casey Moss), is proving to be the best foil ever to Dannifer's "epic love story".

I no longer feel so compelled to fast-forward scenes featuring Reeves and Shawn Christian (Daniel) together. Now that JJ is doing such a bang up job keeping them apart, I actually find myself rooting for the couple. Imagine that!

Daniel and Jennifer's brief bursts of sexual passion have also gotten much hotter, likely because their relationship has taken on a forbidden aspect. The Widder Deveraux is as horny as a cooped up housecat for her hairy medic. However, she's torn because of his absolutely disastrous relationship with her troubled spawn.Throw in Jennifer and JJ's Aunt Maggie (Suzanne Rogers)—who also happens to be Daniel's bio mom—and you have another classic, multigenerational family saga for the Hortons.

JJ follows in a long line of this upstanding, WASP clan's teen terrors. The very first episode of Days of Our Lives featured a 16-year-old Julie causing her Grandpa Tom (MacDonald Carey) distress, by shoplifting for attention. Who knew a kid being prone to taking five-finger discounts would still play so well in daytime almost 50 years later? Watch a recap video of Monday's episode of DAYS below.
