As some of you may have heard, Shane Donovan (Charles Shaughnessy) and Kimberly Brady (Patsy Pease)— one of daytime's most beloved pairings of all time— are set to be reunited on Days of Our Lives soon. We long time DAYS fans know there is some unfinished business for these two starcrossed lovers. Shane and Kim's love story was forever tarnished back in 1992 when Shane was disastrously paired with Kim's sister Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), much to the disgust of viewers, resulting in backlash.
With an assortment of fan favourites makes their way back to Salem for Alice Horton's upcoming exit storyline and Bo (Peter Reckell) currently offscreen helping his big sister, Kim battle a medical crisis, there is a bit of a buzz around the Internet at the moment that Kim's cancer diagnosis may some how pave the way for a Shane and Kim reunion. But the question on everybody's lips is, will Shane and Kim be given a quickie reunion and head off into the sunset, or if perhaps they might hang around Salem and/or pop in from time to time, like the recently returned Wally Kurth and Judi Evans (Justin and Adrienne). I know I'm definitely hoping for the latter! Check out the video clip below recalling the couple's epic love story. READ MORE
Here's a little classic soap moment from New Years Eve 1989 on Days of Our Lives with Shane and Kim. Shane suffering from amnesia hears his and Kim's song 'Friends and Lovers' and is suddenly taken back to a place which has triggered a memory. What's a New Years celebration without a party at Shenanigans?
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
