Salem, U.S.A. bad girl Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) has committed a litany of heinous acts over the years on Days of Our Lives. From drugging and raping Austin (Patrick Muldoon), to selling her baby sister on the black market and/or manipulating DNA tests to serve her own purposes; it's no surprise her eldest offspring, Will Horton (Chandler Massey), has finally grown tired of her shenanigans!
Will and Sami are once again at odds, seemingly over his mother's latest scandalous stunt—sleeping with EJ (James Scott)—but is there more to it? AfterElton spoke with Massey to find out the real skinny behind Will's hostility towards Sami.
I bet hellcat Samantha Jean Brady would have a few choice words for all those hateful fans who used to send her real-life portrayer Alison Sweeney nasty letters about her weight, early in her run on Days of Our Lives. For Sweeney, looking the way she does on the cover of April's Shape is the best revenge!

Days of Our Lives fans wondering why popular actor Bryan Dattilo was let go in 2009, now have answers. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan spoke with the actor, who admitted his behind the scene antics led to his dismissal.
TV Guide Magazine: There was buzz that your ouster from Days in 2009 was due to un-professional behavior. What's the truth?
Dattilo: I was definitely sending out the message I didn't care. I was burned out and not giving my all. I felt the development of my character wasn't going anywhere. I was cracking a lot of jokes. It all came off like I was mocking the show and the work everyone was doing. It was just my insecure way of handling the pressure but it was stupid of me to burn a bridge like that, with a show that's done so much for me, a show that's been my life. It was just the dumbest, most egotistical thing. And I really regret it. I want to prove I can make the most of this second chance. READ MORE
One of daytime and primetime's busiest stars isn't ready to give up on her soap hub. In an interview with Parade magazine, The Biggest Loser's Alison Sweeney commiserated with fans of recently-cancelled sudser One Life to Live, but dug in her heels about the future of her own soap opera Days of Our Lives.
“It’s really hard to say goodbye to shows that have been a part of television for so long. As a member of Days of our Lives, I meet soap fans every day who talk about what a big part of their life it is and how they watched with their mom and their grandma. Those characters were a part of their family dynamic for their whole lives in some instances. So I know how hard it is for all those One Life to Live fans right now and how hard it is to say goodbye to something that’s been so close to their hearts.
"We’re just hopeful at Days of our Lives that we can continue to fight the fight and represent daytime and keep our characters on for as long as we possibly can. We want fans to know that we’re still there and we’re making the best show we possibly can. Hopefully NBC will believe in us and keep us on for a long time.” READ MORE
