Will (Chandler Massey) and Gabi (Camila Banus) wanted to talk about the baby, but Nick (Blake Berris) said nothing had changed. He insisted he and Gabi could still raise the child as their own. Nick has become one delusional Salemite!
I never thought I’d see the day where I loathed this character so much. I guess maybe that’s the brilliance of Berris’ acting. When Will called Nick “insane,” Nick told him never to say that again — ever. Uh oh, here we go down Salem’s psycho rabbit hole.
Popular daytime soaper Judi Evans is doing a little moonlighting. The Days of Our Lives actress has booked a recurring role on The Mentalist. According to published reports, Evans will play State Senator Elaine Dawkins in at least three episodes of the hit CBS procedural, beginning in January.

DAYS BYTES: A cup of black coffee costs a dollar. The look on Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) face when Sonny (Freddie Smith) said he was interested in Will — PRICELESS. Now that Adrienne disapproves of Sonny being with Will, I sort of, just a tad, ever-so-slightly want them together. Why is that?
Sami (Alison Sweeney) wanted to give Will (Chandler Massey) a present, but his first reaction was to wonder what his mother has up her sleeve. Will told his mother if she wanted to get back together with EJ he’d root for her.
The Big Three broadcast networks may not value soap stars and their loyal fans like they once did, but cable channel Investigation Discovery is definitely picking up the slack! Starting Monday at 1 pm EST, ID will debut its Days of Our Knives block of tawdry, non-fiction crime stories.

Over a dozen of your favorite soap stars are set to reunite on cable. No, SOAPnet didn't all of the sudden remember its name. Investigation Discovery is launching a new block of programming aimed at lapsed soap opera lovers! Smartly christened "Days of Our Knives", the cabler's new daytime block will feature scandalous offerings hosted by soapers Susan Lucci, Kim Zimmer, Robert Newman, Drake Hogestyn and more!
"After the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live we saw an opening in the marketplace for some of our most popular series," says ID president and general manager Henry Schleiff. "Our tagline at ID is 'Your Guilty Pleasure' and that's a perfect fit for soap viewers, too. Our show titles even sound like they come from soaps — Happily Never After, Dates From Hell, Deadly Women, Wicked Attraction, Who the Bleep Did I Marry?"
Okay, this Schleiff fellow seems like my kinda TV exec! ID will be using their new soap-themed block to promote the upcoming series Deadly Affairs, hosted by La Lucci herself. The series premieres Sept. 8 at 10/9c. Check out ID's full lineup of upcoming programming hosted by soap stars after the jump!
