Look for Ava's mobster daddy Martino Vitali (Joe Penny) to have a sordid past with the glamourous Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) when he turns up in Salem to help his whackadoodle daughter Ava (Tamara Braun) on May 2. According to TV Guide's Michael Logan's column (on newstands now), Vitali arrives to to assist his little mafia princess when she finds herself in hot water for kidnapping and terrorizing Salem's Fab Four (Bo, Hope, Patch and Kayla). Once he arrives in Salem, Vitali reconnects with Kate, who used to act out Tina Turner's "Private Dancer" for him when she was a high class hooker. Hmmm, Kate's always said that the soon-to-be sprung from the joint Lucas (Bryan Datillo) was the product of her decades ago affair with Bill Horton, but I wonder...will Lucas turn out to be Ava's brother?
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
So let me get this straight...Hope (Kristian Alfonso) turned down the Salem Police Commissioner position because it "wouldn't be fair to Bo and Ciara." But then Bo (Peter Reckell) turns right around and decides to pursue the position? I know Mad Men is all the rage right now, but when did the rest of television revert to the 1960's?
Is it "fair" to Hope and Ciara that Bo will have to spend "so much time" away from them as opposed to Hope? Why does Hope having a uterus mean she should be the one to sacrifice her career for home and family? Are we not living in a time when a woman just may soon be one of the leaders of the free world?
It would be so refreshing for the people in charge of this genre to realize that women are its target demographic. Women, who in an attempt to "have it all", have had to turn into Super Women since the Women's Movement, women who go out in droves to watch sexy, power women like Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, not Bruce Willis blow things up.

Posters in our Days of our Lives forum picked up the snap, crackle, and pop between newcomer Daniel Jonas and Chelsea...or was it her grandmother Kate? The good doc needs someone to occupy his time when he's not saving lives. What fan wouldn't enjoy a war between two manipulative, deceitful gals as a side effect? One thing is certain, if he picks BOTH, he's surely in for a rough ride!
