The 40th Annual Daytime Emmys are almost here and once again Daytime Confidential’s Melodie Aikels will be firing up her LIVE BLOG for the industry’s biggest night. Join Aikels on June 16 from 8-10 PM EST as she weighs in on everything from Emmy fashion, the night’s biggest snubs and acceptance speeches.
Days of Our Lives' William Reed Roberts Horton (Chandler Massey) might not have had time to buy pink cigars—what with having caught a bullet, while trying to rescue his homophobic cousin/rival Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) from his prison rapist—so I figured we would take a little time out to properly salute soaps' most heroic daddy of the moment and his new bundle of joy.
Ah yes, what a wonderful future little Arianna Grace has waiting for her in Salem, U.S.A. We predict at least two custody battles, no less than three SORASings, a Sweeps-period attempted murder of one or more step-parent by the lil' dumpling, only for Ari. G to have her very own out-of-wedlock teen pregnancy storyline circa 2020.
By this point, the no doubt insanely-popular actress playing Arianna Grace, will leave the serial for a lead role in ABC Family's latest hit drama, Nasty Little Harlots. I will of course do a Wishful Casting, suggesting DAYS do whatever it takes to snatch General Hospital's Brooklyn Rae Silzer away from ABC.
Oh, you didn't know Brookie will be in intense contract negotiations to continue on as triplets Emma, Jemma and Karema Drake by that point? You so need better sources.
Check out more pics below of Will, his boyfriend Sonny (Freddie Smith) and his parents Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) and Sami (Alison Sweeney) goo-goo-ga-ga-ing over baby Arianna Grace. Did you ever think you'd see a Mee Maw with a pink streak in her hair?
EXCLUSIVE: Wally Kurth Talks Getting More Days of Our Lives Airtime and Possible General Hospital ReturnBy Jamey Giddens on May 29, 2013
Almost at the halfway point of 2013, one could say it's been a pretty good year for Wally Kurth so far. The veteran soap star is being used frequently on NBC's Days of Our Lives as Justin Kiriakis and his General Hospital character, Ned Ashton is also back in play on the ABC Daytime soap.
I caught up with Kurth at the recent Days of Our Lives Charity Event for Autism Speaks in Atlanta. Amid plenty of appetizers, cocktails and exuberant fans, we chatted about his two defining suds roles.
DC: You've been having a pretty good year. You're on DAYS and you were on GH again.
Wally Kurth: Yeah!
DC: I've been reading in spoilers that Justin is going to be mixing it up even more with EJ and Sami?
WK: Yeah. I love it. I'm working! When you mix it up with those two, you get some airtime. READ MORE
Thursday’s Days of Our Lives featured some very touching scenes with Sonny (Freddie Smith) at Will’s (Chandler Massey) bedside. Sonny professed his love for Will, as Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) watched silently in the background.
I’m on the record as not being the biggest fan of the Will and Sonny pairing, because I find them boring. However, I must admit those were really good scenes. While I doubt they will ever be one of my favorite Days of Our Lives couples, I can respect the relationship they are building. READ MORE
Hope (Kristian Alfonso) burst into the cabin and capped Jensen’s (Derek Magyar) ass like a five-year old playing Duck Hunt at Chuck E. Cheese. Nick (Blake Berris) immediately told Hope that Will (Chandler Massey) had been shot.
Sami (Alison Sweeney) accused Kate (Lauren Koslow) of putting Rafe (Galen Gering) in a coma. A furious Kate hauled off and slapped Sami. Sami then realized Kate had fallen in love with Rafe, and began to taunt her long-time nemesis.
Gabi (Camila Banus) demanded to know why her baby wasn’t crying. Sonny (Freddie Smith) didn’t know, because he had no idea what he was doing. Sonny began swatting the baby’s butt, which caused it to start crying. READ MORE
