As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy are Peggy McCay as Caroline Brady and Alison Sweeney as Sami Brady, respectively, on "Days of our Lives," Maura West as Ava Jerome and Laura Wright as Carly Jacks, respectively, on "General Hospital," and Gina Tognoni as Phyllis Summers on "The Young and the Restless."
“Days of our Lives” doesn’t have to roll out its own red carpet for its upcoming 50th anniversary — the Hollywood Christmas Parade is doing it, instead! The grand holiday event will be honoring the long-running NBC soap opera with a special commemoration on Sunday, November 30!
“It’s impossible to forget Samantha Brady!” declared Caroline (Peggy McCay) on yesterday’s episode of “Days of our Lives,” exactly mirroring the thoughts that many of the sudser’s fans have had on their minds leading up to star Alison Sweeney’s last episode today. Many tears have been shed (both onscreen and off), but was the character’s exit really movie magic? Or would a completely different ending been the way to go?
As previously reported, cast members of NBC's "Days of our Lives" will once again take part in a special "Day of DAYS" fan event scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 8 at Universal CityWalk in Hollywood. This year the celebration takes place on the actual 49th anniversary of the daytime drama series, making it all the more special for fans looking to see their favorite Salemites in person. As always, the event is free and will begin at 10:00 AM with a “Day of DAYS” welcome party with cast introductions, followed by autograph signings, a cast Q&A session, photo booth fun for fans and much more.  The day will culminate with a preview of an upcoming episode of the drama series immediately following the cast Q&A.
Don your finest and bust out a bottle of bubbly, because “Days of our Lives” is making history this week with the first ever male-male wedding to be seen on a soap opera! The important and heartfelt marital ceremony between longtime lovers Will (Guy Wilson) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) officially begins today, Tuesday, April 1, and in celebration of the very special event, Soap Opera Network snagged a few comments from Smith and Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady)! Read on for their special sneak peek into WilSon’s big day!
When the news broke that Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease were headed back to “Days of our Lives” as Shane and Kimberly, daytime fans went wild. The two halves of the show’s former supercouple haven’t been in Salem at the same time since Alice’s funeral over three years ago, so their brief return — placed right in the midst of November Sweeps — has been viewed as an early holiday present by many. But as both actors tell Soap Opera Network, their quick drop into Salem won’t exactly be merry and bright, considering a suicide attempt by their onscreen daughter, Theresa (Jen Lilley), is what brings them back to town! Read on for the full storyline scoop as well as Pease and Shaughnessy’s thoughts about returning to the soap that helped make them household names!
