On <strong>Thursday, November 6</strong>, fans of NBC's "Days of our Lives" will once again say goodbye to <strong>Eileen Davidson</strong> as she wraps her three month stint as Kristen DiMera on the daytime drama series. During her return, much of Kristen's storyline revolved around her rivalry with Theresa (<strong>Jen Lilley</strong>) and her unusual relationship with Daniel (<strong>Shawn Christian</strong>), which included a roll in the hay.

It’s been said that the remaining four network television soaps are like all-star sports teams, consisting of the best of the best of actors in the daytime community. But the latest casting announcement for the online soap opera “Youthful Daze” shoots it right up into the Big Leagues: <strong>Trevor St. John</strong> (ex-Todd Manning/Victor Lord, “One Life to Live”), <strong>Bryan Craig</strong> (Morgan Corinthos, “General Hospital”), <strong>Chrishell Stuase</strong> (Jordan Ridgeway, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Amanda Dillon, “All My Children”) and <strong>Rick Hearst</strong> (Ric Lansing, “GH;” ex-Whip Jones, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) have joined the series, which already boasts a cast with a couple of recognizable names in the industry!

In the coming weeks, as fans of Samantha Brady and EJ DiMera of NBC's "Days of our Lives" get ready to say goodbye to the characters and their portrayers, <strong>Alison Sweeney</strong> and <strong>James Scott</strong>, things may not end well for the show's most popular couple based on what's coming up next on the daytime drama series. Meanwhile, John (<strong>Drake Hogestyn</strong>) seemingly remembered everything that happened the night he landed in the hospital on the Friday, October 3 episode. What does it mean for Theresa (<strong>Jen Lilley</strong>)?

<strong>Jen Lilley</strong> is well aware that she hit soap opera gold when she landed the role of "Days of our Lives'" Theresa Donovan. The feisty character has gotten one stellar storyline after the next — and it doesn’t look like the runaway train will be stopping any time soon! <em>Soap Opera Network</em> caught up with actress, who spilled the deets on Theresa’s rivalry with Kristen (<strong>Eileen Davidson</strong>), her love/hate relationship with sister Eve (<strong>Kassie DePaiva</strong>), and how her alter ego just may well be done with her current love life once and for all!

With photography by <strong>Brad Everett Young</strong>, several of daytime's hottest young stars including "General Hospital's" <strong>Kristen Alderson</strong> (Kiki),<strong> Chad Duell</strong> (Michael),<strong> Ryan Carnes</strong> (Lucas),<strong> Marc Anthony Samuel</strong> (Felix) and <strong>Ian Buchanan</strong> (Duke), "Days of our Lives'" <strong>Brendan Coughlin</strong> (T),<strong> Allison Paige</strong> (Bev), <strong>Guy Wilson</strong> (Will),<strong> Jen Lilley</strong> (Theresa), <strong> Billy Flynn</strong> (Chad), <strong> Casey Moss</strong> (JJ) and <strong>Kevin Riggin</strong> (Rory), and "The Young and the Restless'" <strong>Camryn Grimes</strong> (Mariah), along with stars from "Baby Daddy" (<strong>Derek Theleer</strong>), "Teen Wolf" (Stephen Lunsford) and "Power Rangers," have taken part in the <a href="http://dreamloudofficial.com/" target="_blank"><em>Dream Loud</em> campaign</a> that hopes to bring music and the arts programs back into schools.

Watching “Days of our Lives’” Sami (Alison Sweeney), Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Gabi (Camila Banus) supposedly wash their hands clean of Nick (Blake Berris) by tossing him in a river was delicious soap opera fun.

Or could it be a twin brother or an imposter using his face? And if it truly is Nick, just how far will he go to get back at the ladies for trying to off him? Soap Opera Network chatted with the character’s portrayer to find out!

Best known for his singing stints in "Nashville Star" and "If I Can Dream," country music singer and actor Justin Gaston has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the contract role of Ben, who a casting call from last summer described as "early-to-mid 20s... midwestern or southern (very slight southern accent) country boy. He is utterly charming in his honest sincere approach to life and love. Ben can also sing and/or play the guitar, though it is not necessary." The actor began filming scenes in mid-October and will first air later this month.
