Say what you will about “Days of our Lives’” Nancy Wesley, but she is definitely a character fans just love to hate. The same can’t be said of her portrayer, Patrika Darbo, who is loved, loved, loved all around for her humor, candidness and ability to play one of daytime’s baddest bitches!

“It is the best character to play,” raves Darbo of Chloe Lane’s mom, a role she originated back in 1998. “Every day, I thank goodness [for] the fact that I get to play this role that they created for me, and that they have kept her coming back.”

ABC’s “The View” is hosting a very special “Guy Friday” episode, and guess who’s popping in to co-host? The beloved Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing, “Dallas;” ex-Stephen Logan, “The Bold and the Beautiful”)!

On the show, which regularly features co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, Duffy will help the team tackle subjects like the latest in sneaker fashions and how to talk to your kids about sex. But the highlight will no doubt be when Harrison Ford and Chadwich Boseman join the group to promote their latest film, “42.”

Rick and Maya met up for lunch on the rooftop terrace. Dayzee and Caroline were unknowingly adjacent to them. Caroline was being snobbish with a waiter and pondering what pics of her salad she should post online. Dayzee seemed irritated and expressed she had a million other things to do right now. Caroline said she was here to talk about Rick and “whatsherface.” She accused Dayzee of aiding and abetting the enemy by letting her stay at the cafe. Dayzee said she felt obligated. Just then, Caroline spotted Rick with Maya across the way. She was disgusted and started ragging on her clothes and jail past. She didn’t understand what Rick saw in her. Meanwhile, Rick and Maya were discussing their past experiences together. They agreed it was better he didn’t tell her he was a Forrester right off the bat, because she would’ve ran in the other direction. Dayzee and Caroline continued gabbing about Maya. Dayzee said she felt terrible for Maya and wanted to help her out, but she didn’t want her infiltrating her family.
