They portray twins on NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” although Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) and Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady) are anything but that in Hallmark Channel’s “Second Chances.” Premiering Saturday, July 27, the TV movie tells the story of 911 operator Jenny McLean (Sweeney), who along with her two kids, Luke (Benjamin Stockham) and Elsie (Charlotte Labadie), take in firefighter Jeff Sinclair (Vaughan) after he is injured on the job and the family is in desperate need of extra income as a result of Jenny’s work hours having been recently cut. As Jeff and Jenny find themselves drawn together due to circumstances beyond their control, they begin to wonder where their mutual attraction will take them.
On Monday, June 17, in honor of “Days of our Lives” taking home its first Emmy Award in 35 years for Outstanding Drama Series during the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards the night before, the NBC Daytime drama series celebrated its Emmy win in style with cast and crew partaking in champagne. In addition to celebratory words from executive producer Ken Corday, NBC provided the series with a framed congratulatory document that read “Congratulations!! We are so proud. Cheers to your well-deserved honor, Bob, Jen, Bruce, Rebecca and all of your fans at NBC!!!” The document ended with the famous NBC peacock logo.
It’s not every day that you’ll see daytime stars going rebel and giving the bird, but that’s all about to change. In support of The Friend Movement, a grassroots anti-bullying organization, several sudser stars have posed for provocative photos in which they give the camera — and bullying — the middle finger.
As previously reported, TVGN has picked up the same-day airing rights of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” beginning with the Monday, July 1 episode. This means that this week is the final week in which fans of the SOAPnet airings will be able to catch the drama series on the never ending defunct cable network.
“Days of our Lives” star James Reynolds (Abe Carver), and his wife Lissa, need your help. Now through Wednesday, June 26, the duo are asking for donations to help the Fremont Centre Theatre get to the 2013 National Black Theatre Festival. “Our critically acclaimed production of “Holding On~ Letting Go” has been chosen to be a Main Stage show at the prestigious National Black Theatre Festival, and we need your help to get there!” reads a message from the duo promoting the Kickstarter endeavor.
Less than $300 separates the Fremont Centre Theatre from reaching their goal of $14,500. Currently 189 backers have stepped forward for a total of $14,290 pledged.
During the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday, June 14, Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker, “Days of our Lives”) gave Soap Opera Network an exclusive in character interview regarding the storyline involving Nicole and Eric Martsolf‘s Brady Black.
“The relationship between Brady and Nicole is very…I wouldn’t say difficult, I think that we have a very loving relationship as friends…unbelievably attracted to each other, but we can not sustain a relationship. However, I think that at the end of the day…I mean physically we belong together, emotionally we’re working on that. You’re going to see the relationship kinda do something – more than Brady always being like whiny and there for me, which is kind of exciting I think and I think it’s exciting for Eric [Martsolf], for his character to be like ‘Finally!’”
