The Diva's best and worst for 2010


Since everyone and their brother did a best and worst list, why not a sister? lol

Best Storyline: Romance between Victor and Maggie.

Worst Storyline: There's so many, but I would have to pick Nighttime Hope.

Biggest WTF moment: Caroline switched the paternity test results.

Least surprising twist: Stefano is Chad's father.

Most surprising twist: Instead of "who is the daddy?" it was "who switched the test results?" But the answer being Caroline was awful.

Best couple: Maggie and Victor.

Worst Couple: There's so many, but I have to give it to Nathan and Stephanie.

Best New Couple: Maggie and Victor.

Worst New Couple: Will and Gabi.

Most improved actor: Molly Burnett as Melanie.

Best Love Triangle: Victor/Vivian/Maggie

Worst Love Triangle: Sort of a triangle, Nathan/Melanie/Stephanie

Dumbest character: Daniel Jonas, everyone in town knows Chloe cheated, and he is not the father of Parker.

Most improved character: Brady Black. He's fun to watch now.

Worst character assassination: Caroline Brady. Really? She switched the test results?

Best Villain: We still love Vivian Alamain!

Worst Villain: EJ DiMera. He's keeping the mother of his children away from his child with cancer.

Best breakup: State. Joe Mascolo and Lauren Koslow were amazing when Kate and Stefano's marriage ended.

Worst breakup: Rafe ending the friendship between Anna DiMera and Calliope Jones Bradford.

Best return: Kim and Shane!

Worst return: Adrienne Kiriakis. We love Judi Evans, but when was the last time you saw her with Wally Kurth?

Worst editing: Cutting out Kim and Shane's kiss.

Best Heroic moment: Victor rescuing Maggie from the sarcophagus.

Worst Hero: Rafe covering up for Sami shooting EJ in the head.

Best Heroine: Maggie Horton.

Worst Heroine: Sami Brady Hernandez. She shot the father of her children who was unconscious in the head. She didn't confess when Stefano thought her son was the culprit.

Best recast: John Martin. Everyone was buzzing about the new Bill Horton.

Worst recast: nuGabi Hernandez, Camila Banus.

Best actor: James Scott. One of the few actors in daytime who rocks any emotional scene by restraining emotion instead of over-acting.

Worst actor: Galen Gering. He rarely shows any emotion at all.

Best actress: Suzanne Rogers. Maggie went through a lot this year. She lost her husband and her mother-in-law. She's fighting her affection for Victor. She got locked into a sarcophagus. Suzanne delivered every time.

Worst actress: Camila Banus. She plays Gabi. Yeah I had to look her name up too.


Wednesday's twitterific tweets

ShareHere's today's tweets while the Diva was watching Days of Our Lives live today:

Nicole makes a good point that Sami shooting EJ was unnecessary when she had all the evidence against EJ.

Please, no more flannel!

Good for Kayla for sticking up for morals against her mum

Leave it to Chloe to show cleavage at church during her son's christening.

Why isn't Daniel wearing a tie?

Rafe's harassing Victor via the phone during Parker's christening. Give it a rest Rafe.

More Sami/Nicole smackdowns with EJ watching. He should sell tickets.

Oh please, Kayla. Stephanie is not a child.

Could Chloe's dress be a little shorter? Nothing like showing glittering hoo-ha during church!

Adrienne breaks up the Kayla/Caroline borefest.

Steph and Nathan on a plane, smart of her to get out of dodge.

lmao at Victor being snarky with Rafe.

Chloe wants to go on vacation with Daniel and Parker

Sami would rather die than have Nicole raise her kids. One could only hope!

got distracted by a phone call

Victor is nice to Chloe. He tries to apologize for being snarky to her in the past. Chloe interrupts him, and says it's ok.

Sydney's eyes are fine.

EJ wants Nicole to press charges against Sami.

Sami's taken to the SPD.

Finally, the christening begins.

Stefano and EJ at the DiMansion. EJ's still gloating over the Sami/Nicole fight.

Rafe to Sami, "the only reasons why U haven't been arrested yet is because U are related to half the police force & slept w/ the other half"

It's hard to cheer for Sami when she's so friggin immature.

Parker is so cute

Ej's new strategery is to get Sami committed for attacking Nicole.

Rafe threatens to arrest Nicole. He's fitting in well for Roman with his bias towards the Bradys.

Stefano's not impressed with EJ's plan.

Um Rafe, you can't arrest Nicole for pressing charges against Sami. And you can't threaten her with arrest either.

Kayla and Caroline are boring the crap out of me.

Uh oh. Parker doesn't want to be baptized. lol

Lucky for Stephanie that she actually got on a flight headed to the East Coast without any problems.

lmao at Sami pulling books off the shelves and throwing them on the floor in Rafe's office. Rafe tries to get Sami to act like an adult.

EJ proposes to Nicole!

Kayla tells Caroline to tell Daniel that he's not the father when the doors open at the church with everyone overhearing. Whoops!

Preview 4 Thursday, Daniel tries to hit Philip on the head with a cross from the church.....

...I don't think that will help either of them get into heaven.

Overall, a good eppy except for the boring Kayla/Caroline stuff.

Thursday's twitterlicious episode

ShareToday's Days of Our Lives tweets:

Santana asks Roman if he's helping Bope.

Viv shows Nicole naughty pics of Bricole. Too bad no video footage.

Maggie overhears Brady's naughty message to Nicole.

Stefano! Where da hell has he been?

why is Chloe wrapping gifts at the Brady Pub?


Hope's trying to get rid of Bo. lol I hope he hid the lighter and gasoline from the cabin.

Anyone else wonder why Bo hasn't built a fire yet? It has to be cold in that cabin.

EJ realizes Sami is poison. Well duh. But she didn't give her kid cancer.

EJ has finally gone cuckoo.

Carly's upset about Bope. Daniel notices.

I'm sensing sexual tension between Roman and Santana. Even though Santana seems to be playing for the other team.

Santana calls Rafe stupid. lmao She shows Roman/Rafe the photographic evidence of the Bope prison break.

Santana is one smart cookie. She knows the SPD won't find Bope.

Why would Hope call Ciara? Doesn't she know as a cop that they can ping cell phones to find their location?

Back still hurts from falling down the attic stairs. Next time I'll try to land on my bum.

Maggie finds out that Vivian bought Titan.

Brady smirks at Maggie when she mentions Victor. Maggie is protesting too much.

Can we find something for Adrienne to do besides babysit?

Carly/Daniel overhear on the radio about Bope's escape. Carly contemplates going on death row to get Bo's attention again.

Roman seems really amused with Santana. It's the most action he's seen in years!
Diva_Nikki Nicole Pratl
@DivaofDOOL YEAH! Not since Anna jumped into the sac with him. She was drugged when she did it so...I forgave her! LOL
@Diva_Nikki I totally forgot their hook up. I was thinking his last piece was with Marlena and the "rassle in the castle" chains sex.

Nicole talks to EJ at the hospital. Viv shows up! uh oh

Carly tells Daniel Bo won't come home to her. Carly tells Daniel that both her and Bo keep secrets. That describes every couple in Salem.

EJ is not impressed with meeting his father's ex.

Stefano's talking to God. lmfao

Even Viv seemed mortified when EJ told her about Johnny. I'm surprised he was so calm.

Roman's putting Rafe in charge of finding Bope even though he's his son-in-law. No nepotism at the SPD!

Carly's got herself pegged. She does try to fix problems and make them work. And she always screws it up. She cries on Daniel's shoulder.

Chloe sees the Darly embrace. So far she hasn't run off to get impregnated by Philip again.

Chloe sympathizes with Carly.

EJ tells Nicole that she's not his friend. That's not nice.

Nicole tells EJ that she cares for Johnny.

James is putting in an Emmy performance with his pain over Johnny. He looks totally devastated.

Gina and Santana fretting over Hope

Bope hears something outside. I bet it's not Kate Gosselin.

Chloe offers for Carly to stay with them instead of her staying at Bo's.

Carly is Parker's g-momma.

Brady spies EJole at the hospital.

Today's eppy wasn't half bad.

Adrienne and Chloe at the Pub. Save Adrienne!

Thaao and Leann interview ready for playback!


Missed it live? You can still listen to the show at your convenience. What a wonderful Christmas gift having the two of them banter live. Interesting tidbits like who Anna was initially supposed to be paired with before Tony. Thanks so much to Thaao Penghlis and Leann Hunley for doing this show. It was such a treat!

Thanks also to our callers. You guys always come up with interesting questions.

Days up, the other soaps down

Thursday's "new twitter sux" tweets


Well, I hate the new Twitter. Every time I attempt to use it, it won't let me tweet. I briefly tweeted on it Wednesday. Now every time I tweet, it tells me that they did something wrong, and try again in a minute. Still won't tweet. Grrrrrrrrrr. Any suggestions?

There's about a 5 minute delay from the beginning of the show due to nuTwitter disliking me so much. For the most part, the episode sucked. lol

new twitter sux

Sorry, couldn't tweet with new twitter.

Will and Gabi at the nice pier

Sami's dress is cute. she's on her cell with Rafe outside the DiMansion.


lmao I hope Allie gets store bought cookies for school instead of Sami making them.

Wow they are really dragging out this Johnny eye drama.

Oh, great. Hope and Santana

Bo and Jenn, Bo notices that Hope misspelled Ciara's name. Yeah we all do since most ppl spell it Sierra.

I'm just not feeling Gabi's pain about losing her sister.

Sami finds out that Johnny missed school.

Johnny's eating a non-Sami-made cookie. He's a smart cookie.

Parker's free, Maggie's taking him for a walk.

Dan and Melanie. He's trying to tell her, but she won't shut up.

Will & Gabi show up at the Safe house.

I like Gabi's top.

Johnny still wants Sami, he doesn't want to go to the eye doctor.

Hope threatens Santana

A sandwich and grape juice, Hope has better food at prison than at Sami's.

Ace reporter Jenn should get on the infirmary deaths case.

Will's in trouble, Sami called him "William."

Mel still is talking...

Mel's boring Dan to the point he might just take a nap and tell her that her husband is cheating when he wakes up.

Parker decides he doesn't want pneumonia, and cries until Maggie takes him to the Danloe formerly Lumi apartment.

Personal foul on EJ for bringing up that Sami didn't seek treatment for Grace until it was too late. The Commissioner may fine him too.

Will finally fesses up to Sami about Johnny.

Sami's freaking out.

The Commissioner has fined EJ $50,000 on his unnecessary roughness penalty against Sami. James Harrison comes to EJ's defense.

Phone's ringing...

Telemarketer, lovely. Don't call me during DOOL, ok?

#ThaaoPenghlis still hasn't tweeted. Damn, that must have been one helluva birthday!

Daniel calls Philip to tell him he's with Melanie.

Bo explains that he has no plan to Jenn.

Jenn's pissed! You go girl.

Will and Gabi get to babysit Allie. Safe goes to the hospital.

That hot guy from Y&R is the eye doctor.

Still can't tweet with new Twitter. I can't read your replies either

So Mel knows Chloe cheated, Daniel knows Philip cheated. And they are both lying.

Lucky for Johnny, he leaves with Lexie before Sami shows up screeching.

Hope's praying.

That orange jumpsuit makes Hope look like she has jaundice.

lmao Bo will let Jenn know when he gets a plan.

Jenn's not waiting on Bo. You go girl!

Gorgeous wreath at Maggie's house

Chloe the big mouth shows up at Maggie's. She's asking for Daniel.

I wish someone would tell Melanie that she might be a little young to have a baby.

Dan and Phil at the nice pier AGAIN.

Dan and Phil clean up well. Not a single bruise or cut.

Phil confesses to an affair with....

EJ accuses Sami of sabotaging Johnny's eye to see him. *rolls eyes*

Show is over. New Twitter hates me. lol Sorry I couldn't respond to tweets in my direction. They don't show up on the old twitter.

Another gift suggestion from the Diva. Good thing my kids don't read this blog. lol

DOOL casts the new Hernandez brother

As first reported in Digest's 12/21 issue, the Hernandez clan is expanding. Francisco San Martin has been cast as Rafe (Galen Gering) and Gabi's (Camila Banus) brother, Dario. He will begin taping in January to first air in March. San Martin first appeared on DAYS mid-November as a patient Nathan and Melanie were treating.

Don't remember Dario being mentioned? Yeah, me neither.

Another Diva recommended Christmas gift:

"Morticia and Gomez are no longer together" Wednesday's tweets

Today wasn't half bad. We got some Magic and Adrienne. They teased us a bit with a renewed Sami/Lexie feud. Here we go:

EJole. Nicole asks if there's anything wrong with Johnny.

Lexie tells Rafe to tell Sami to "go to Hell." I miss the Lexie/Sami fights.

Magic at Danloe's apartment

Another Christmas miracle, Adrienne Kiriakis at the hospital talking to Nathan.

Oh great. More Mel and Steph

More Mel/Nate flashbacks. *yawn*

Daniel kicks Philip's ass at the pier in front of Chloe.

Rafe drops the Johnny bomb on Lexie.

Daniel tells Chloe that Phil cheated on Melanie. Chloe would have turned white if it wasn't for the fake tan.

Nicole tells EJ about a prank she played on Vivian.

Nicole has to ask permission to see Sydney from EJ.

Lexie notices Johnny's eye in the photo

Adrienne and Nathan discuss the wedding.

Mel lies to Steph that Nathan loves Steph. *double yawn*

Thank comes some Magic!

Victor meets his grandson. Awwwwwwww

got distracted.... I'm back.

I have a friend texting me during DOOL at the same time. The Diva multi-tasks baby!

Stephanie drops the Caroline bomb on Adrienne.

Phil shows up at the hospital. Danloe is at the pier still. Daniel says he overheard Steph say that Phil cheated.

Chloe's not doing a good job convincing Daniel that Phil is innocent.


EJ tells Nicole that Sydney likes to scribble crayon on the couches and walls. She hates the set of the DiMansion as much as I do.

Lexie and Rafe try to talk sense into EJ. Good luck on that one.

Still texting....

Good on Lexie, she got rid of Rafe!

Parker spat up on Victor. lmao Maggie cleans it up.

If Magic had sex on Danloe's couch, I would lmfao!
@DivaofDOOL Never! Maggie is too much of a lady. LOL
@Nicholle78 Yeah but Victor is kinky.

Victor drops the Kate bomb!

"Morticia and Gomez are no longer together," says Victor. lol

Victor asks Maggie if having Kate live with him bothers her. IT DOES. lol

Chloe wants Daniel not to squeal on Phil to Mel.

Still texting...not about DOOL though.

Chloe sticks her foot in her mouth again. Daniel is too clueless to catch her slip.

Phil tells Nathan to worry about Stephanie, not Phillip's injuries.

Adrienne still wants Stephanie to spill. Stephanie threatens to not forgive Adrienne.

Maggie calls Kate a "homicidal psychopath." Victor says he's nonjudgmental. Hilarious!

Maggie tries to convince herself she doesn't care, Victor tells himself she does care. Oh the angst!

Nicole and Sydney run into Rafe outside the DiMansion door. She accuses him of spying.

Lexie tries to talk EJ into letting her examine Johnny.

Still texting.

Adrienne keeps her mouth shut, for now. So we can have this conversation over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Phil shows up at Danloe's and sees Maggie.

still texting.

Daniel wants the whole story before telling Melanie. Chloe is so screwed. lol

Nicole makes a great point that she would do anything for Sydney unlike Sami.

Man, little Johnny is one helluva actor.

still texting...just a few minutes to go.

Nathan tells Stephanie that Philip got into a fight.

Are there twigs on Danloe's tree as garland? I like it.

Chloe shows up at her apartment. Daniel shows up at Maggie's and sees Melanie.

Lexie tells EJ that Johnny is not fine.

Oh no. Sami finds out tomorrow. Damn. Another Sami freak out.

Thanks for following along. Today wasn't that bad. At least we saw Judi Evans, and saw some Magic.

#ThaaoPenghlis must be having one helluva birthday, not a single tweet from him. lol

Oh great, DOOL just cast a Hernandez brother that we have never heard of before.

Christmas gift idea from the Diva! I just bought 5 of these! Check out the ad for Illustory.

Tweets from Tuesday's awful episode


Please avoid today's episode at all costs. Oh, it was bad!

Super sleuth Rafe now an expert on eye disease

Mel and Nate discussing his wedding date. zzzzzzzzzz

Stephanie calls Missing-In-Action Aunt Adrienne Kiriakis

S&K to be a no-show at the Steph/Nate wedding.

Delusional much? Stephanie rationalizing the morality of keeping Phil's infidelity a secret. Daniel overhears. Uh oh.

Phloe at Danloe's apartment.

Free Parker!

Zillionaire Brady gives the Danloe baby a blue elephant. Brady and Phloe in the same room, awkward!

Nicole calls EJ a bastard at the DiMansion.

Mel wants to know why Nate is marrying Stephanie when he loves Melanie. Good question, but does anyone really care?

Ben consoles Lexie in front of Abe.

Nicole wants to see Sydney, good thing since EJ and Sami only seem to care about Johnny right now.

I'm bored already. Missing State and Magic.

Philip tells Brady he doesn't trust Nicole because of Vivian in ilght of the Bricole broke up.

EJ wants Nicole to move into the DiMansion.

This is so fascinating watching Rafe, Will and Gabi printing out photos of Johnny.


Thanks to the shitty weather, DOOL's rating should be sky high this week. Too bad the viewers are watching boring crap.

40 minutes to go............................................................................................................................

Brady holds his cousin, Parker.

Too cute. Baby only has eyes for Brady.

Nicole gets offered the cottage at the DiMansion. Didn't know they had one.

If EJ wants Sami to be jealous, moving Nicole into the cottage isn't going to do the trick.

Normally I'm excited to see the Carvers, but not today.

Why da hell does Ben care about the Nathan/Stephanie wedding?

Daniel's at the "nice" pier that is decorated for Christmas. Uh oh, Phil shows up.

Poor Henderson. Nicole throws a glass in his direction to get him to think Bricole broke up.

Another cock fight between EJ and Rafe. zzzzzzzzzz

The Carvers made up. Not surprised. If they didn't, they might actually get a storyline.

Oh please. Nathan's healthy enough to work, but not get married according to Ben.

Daniel asks Phil if he cheated on Mel.

Henderson wants to leave the fake Bricole fight, they won't let him. I feel Henderson's pain.

Bricole starts making out. The fake fight turns on Brady again.

How nice of Sami to give up her kids so her new husband can keep his job.

22 minutes of Hell to go!

Oh great. Mel and Nathan flashbacks

Abe's not in denial, he's just male. lol

Awwwwwww The Carvers won me over again. Give them a storyline! Lexie's a DiMera for Pete's sake!

Bricole likes it rough.

@Mama_Hooch I would recommend completely avoiding this episode.

:-( Bricole rough sex is over.

Brady doesn't want Nicole moving into the DiGuesthouse. Nicole wants to do it to see Sydney.

Just look at the damn photo already!

Daniel accuses Phil of cheating on Mel with Sabrina the horny Titan employee. Daniel isn't buying it.

9 minutes to go.

Free the Diva!

She seems over EJ. Good for her.

Stephanie's planning her wedding during work. You'd think she could use the same wedding plans she had for her wedding with Philip.

Rafe's gotten smarter. Avoiding talking to Sami with problems with her kids is a good idea. She's just going to flip out anyways.

Lexie shows up at Safe's apartment.

Daniel is in Philip's face. Chloe overhears Daniel accusing Phil of cheating.

Thanks for reading. If you missed today's show, good for you! lol

Tweets from Friday's dull episode

ShareDon't bother watching Friday's episode of Days of Our Lives. It was that dull. Here's my version from Twitter:

Viv billed Victor for the sarcophagus. lol

Caroline's in church asking for forgiveness.

Oh great, more Hope in prison.

Sami bites Rafe when he tries to cover her mouth. He won't do that again. lol

@DivaofDOOL Unless he's into that sort of thing...

Safe's eavesdropping on EKate in the DiGarden.

Nice use of history, Chloe mentions growing up in an orphanage.

Caroline is really trying to justify her actions to God. I'm having a Sami flashback of all her promises to God.

@Nicholle78 I don't want to know what Rafe likes in bed.

@DivaofDOOL LOL me neither... now Brady on the other hand...

lmao Kate's an expert at going to bed with snakes.

EKate scene was way too short. Bummer.

I spoke too soon, they are in the DiMorningRoom now.

Safe's at the pier again. How many times has everyone been at the pier today?

Uh oh. Sami disobeyed her "daddy" Rafe. She'll have to go sit in the naughty chair and take a time out.

Phil gets hit on at the Brady Pub.

Carbo visits Parker. Carly is so excited.

Oh..Santana is pissed.

Santana is making Hope write a letter to Bo. Reminds me of when she was kidnapped by Larry Welch.

EJ brings up Kate setting up Sami for murder.

Kate's giving great advice to EJ.

Rafe's as cold as ice.

@Nicholle78 Brady's kinky, no doubt.

I'm getting bored.

Sami's a hypocrite. Just a few months ago, she wanted EJ completely cut out of Sydney and Johnny's life.

Johnny squeals on Sami.

I miss cliffhanger Fridays.

Uh oh Daniel sees Philip kissing a tramp at the Pub. *yawn*

Do we really need to watch Wabi text each other?

The Safe bedroom is beyond dull. wth? The show cannot be that cheap.

Johnny tells EJ that he hates him.

@Nicholle78 They don't have birth control strong enough to kill DiMera sperm.

Thank God, it's almost over.

The tramp is flirting with the Brady bartender.

Just noticed Kate's blue tights.

Funny how Sami complains about Ej's orders, but not Rafe's.

Thank God it's over.

Tweets from Thursday's show


If it wasn't for the actor who plays Johnny, the show today would have totally sucked. Here's what you missed:

Not starting well..damn Hope prison s/l.

Bricole! Thank goodness.

Brady's got a point. The old Nicole would have a plan. Nicole fell in love with Sydney. We all fell in love with Sydney.

Johnny's got a cool motorcycle. Love those footie pj's too.

Sami cooked? And no one is nauseous?

Why is everyone dressed in blue at Sami's?

Santana is mean, mean, mean.


Santana's name is Warden Lee Smith? come on!

Wasn't the governor Anna's ex boyfriend?

Nicole having a moral issue about scheming for Sydney is laughable.

*yawn* this eppy better get more interesting.

Jack mentioned!

Brady proposes a fake break up with Nicole

My eyes must be playing tricks on me. Ben looked like Jack for a split second.

Is DOOL trying to sell that Ben is a hero for using prisoners' organs? come on.

Of course Sami easily breaks into the front door of the DiMansion.

@DivaofDOOL @Nicholle78 tru dat. No chemistry with Bennifer.

The Biggest Loser commercial, I'm totally on Team Ada.

Brady's kinky. He wants to fake break up for fake make up sex.

nuGabi and Will. Another chemistry less couple. zzzzzzzz

Gabi remembered her sister is dead. Rafe apparently forgot.

Sami's starting already getting little Johnny to lie for her. Good idea to teach them while they are still young.

You have to admit, Santana does have a point about Hope's past mental states. She didn't even mention the whole Princess Gina fiasco.

@Nicholle78 it's ok to be a serial killer as long as you have a charming accent.

Carly's looking in good shape. Good for her.

Are they waiting for Marlena to show up at the pier or what?

Stefano loves Kate! EJ says, "you are joking?"

Johnny is a naturally good liar. Who da thunk it?

"Why do you hate me?" says Johnny to Sami. She doesn't hate you, she just doesn't want to go to prison for shooting your dad.

The kids on this show are better actors then some of the adults.

EJ questioning why Stefano loves Kate is funny considering he loves Samantha.

@Nicholle78 If Johnny learns to rrrrrrrroll his rrrrrrrrrr's like his grandfather, he'll be just fine knocking up lots of women.

Will's learned the art of grief sex. Gets that from the women in his family too.

"why is he the boss of you?" says Johnny to Sami. That was an awesome line.

Wow. Sami remembered she has 4 kids. lol

I wonder if Sami is going to remember that Sydney is in the mansion too.

EJ dumps Stefano at the pier. It occurs to him that he needs to be a better father than Stefano was to him and Tony.

@Nicholle78 Sami better have the safe sex talk with all her kids asap. Her and EJ have very fertile genes.

lmao that Brady brings up Nicole faked a pregnancy w/o EJ knowing. Brady's going to withhold sex if she doesn't fake break up with him.

Wow. Brady's seducing Nicole again to get what he wants. Lucky girl!

Yep. Sami did forget Sydney.

Someone grabs Sami. I'm assuming it's Rafe. End of another lackluster episode. Thanks to Nicolle78!

Total snoozer episode. I'd recommend skipping it completely.

Staci Greason writes a novel

ShareStaci Greason who seems to have had more episodes as Ghost Isabella than live Isabella Toscano Black from Days of Our Lives has penned her first novel. You can read all about her book at Soap Opera Digest's website.

Diva's Tweets about Wednesday's show

ShareI missed the very end of Days of Our Lives today, but here's my thoughts in real time.

Kate's plastic isn't working. That's harsh! Stefano is so mean.

Every time someone says "sarcophagus" I'm going to start singing "Trapped in a Box" by No Doubt.

I'm surprised this Brady and Victor scene is so dull.

State is turning into the War of the Roses.

Poor Johnny. :-(

When does Sami start to think to herself that maybe turning herself in might be better than having her family split apart?

wow. Nicole's the voice of reason.

Go Kate! She told Stefano he knew how she was when they got married, and she's not changing for him.

State fights like a real married couple. lol

Ej is the "nice guy." lmfao

Kate throws Stefano's lies in his face.

Kate wants a compromise with Stefano, he says he won't change. Excellent State episode.

"Every time you try to fix something, you make it worse," Rafe nails that one on the head about Sami.

I'm not impressed with any of the Christmas decorations this year.

Victor tells Brady that Nicole is on their side.

Kate decides to move to the Salem Inn. She's tired of revenge and the humiliation at the hands of her husband.

Vivian is bugging Stefano in his own garden.

Victor mocking Kate's marital problems is funny considering how awful his marriages were.

EJ dodged the "why he hates Brady" question. There is some jealousy there, no doubt.

Victor points out he never thought the State marriage would last, it did last over a year.

Victor invites Kate to move in with him. Kate officially joins the "rent is too damn high" party. I guess Vic wasn't thinking about Maggie

"I'm sick of this, I'm sick of you," says Stefano to Viv. lmao

Kate, Victor, Brady, and Nicole under one roof, good times!

Nicole tells Brady that EJ wants her to give up Brady.


Deidre Hall on the DOOL return question


Soap Opera Digest caught up with Deidre Hall (Marlena, Days of Our Lives) about a possible return to the show.

Rachel Melvin on the set of "Castle" this Friday

ShareRachel Melvin ex Chelsea Brady is filming an episode of "Castle" this Friday according to her tweet. She also announced her episode on "House" will not air until January.

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

The Diva's Tweets about Tuesday's show

Did you miss today's episode of Days of Our Lives? No fear, the Diva is here to tell you what you missed.

Live tweeting during Obama's press conference since he's taken over my DOOL time.

Yes! he left the building!

Lester Holt is really losing his hair.

Lester Holt looks like Chicken Little with the receding hairline and glasses.

omg..EJ as a cop. Hottness! Sami is so stupid, that that dream scared her.

Sydney, Johnny, and EJ going Christmas shopping. Bad idea with two little kids.

Poor Chloe. It took her a few minutes to get her figure back. Yeah, that's realistic.

The baby is so cute!

lmfao Caroline hangs up on Stephanie.

Kate's still in the DiMansion.

Yay! State makes up.

Stefano shouldn't need Kate to find all his illegitimate children for him. That's a full time job.

State makes up...with a condition!

I had to restart the computer.

Oh, Kate's not happy.

Why did EJ take the kids right past the Brady Pub? Cute watching Johnny playing with the fake snow. lol

considering what Caroline's been up to, is she really threatening EJ with God?

Philip is the mood for babymaking.

sounded like Stefano called Daniel "Danielle" or is it just me?

I guess Stefano forgot that Daniel didn't save Tony.

Oh, Kate is really pissed. This ought to be good.

Free Sydney!

He did it again. Stefano called Daniel "Danielle."

wow, don't talk bad about nicole to Brady.

Awwwwww Sydney is so cute.

If there's poisoned brownies in that box Kate is carrying, I'm going to lmao.

Sami remembers she has other kids!

Kate's speech was hilarious. Great acting by Lauren Koslow.

Nathan/Stephanie/Caroline are really dragging today's eppy down.

Stephanie's angst is getting old.

I don't remember Stephanie ever caring about Sami's kids.

Another condition? Come on Stefano!

OMG...State and Vivian for dinner at the DiMansion? Priceless!

Ej invited Nicole over for Christmas.

You'd think that EJ would be relieved to have Nicole with Brady so he wouldn't have to worry about her trying to get EJ back.

Why don't we all take our kids down to the pier in December? WTH?

Danloe won't open it. Oh c'mon! We're dying to know.

Anyone getting the idea that Parker's christening is going to be as interesting as Sydney's was?

Kate refuses supper with Vivian.

Damn that Johnny is one helluva actor.

Looks like more State fighting tomorrow. And Nicole wants to know why EJ hates Brady. Thanks for reading!

clip of Deidre Hall from Detroit's Thanksgiving Day Parade


You can see Deidre Hall at the fourteen minute mark. Sorry, I checked. The interview with her does not continue on video 3.

Deidre Hall on Good Day NY clip

You can watch Deidre from today's episode here.

Tweets while watching Monday's show


Very dull episode over all. But if you are a State or Magic fan, you might want to check it out. Here's my tweets while watching the show live today at

What kind of jacket is Bo wearing? How come Carly is still in the hospital while Nate's back at work, and Mel's visiting Maggie?


Jenn's too cute. Love the hair, and the lavender coat and purse.

Gina and Santana again!

Awww. They showed a pic of Mickey and Maggie.

You can't hide anything from Stefano. He's sharp as a tack.

That's nice of Hope to offer her fish sticks before she puts someone in a sleeper hold. lol

Do we really need a flashback of Viv saying she's getting revenge?

Vivian and Stefano, finally!

Maggie's not putting up with any b.s. from anyone.

Viv tells Stefano what Brady did to her, "like I give a damn," says Stefano. lol

Viv explains to Stefano that Kate discovered her in the coffin and walked away, "good on her part," he responds. lol

Maggie shuts the door tearfully in Victor's face when he says, "I love you." The angst!

Isn't Abe the mayor? Why can't he help Bo?

I see no sparks at all between Jenn and Ben.

Besides State and Magic, pretty dull episode on Monday.

I will be tweeting live again today at 3 pm est. You can follow my tweets here.

Charles Shaughnessy on Fran Drescher Tawk Show clip

Missed Charles Shaughnessy (Shane Donovan, DOOL) on today's Fran Drescher Tawk show?  Here's the clip.  How cute are they?

Eric Winter on Lifetime movie tonight!

Eric Winter, aka Rex Brady, will appear in "Sundays at Tiffany's" tonight on Lifetime network at 9 pm est with Alyssa Milano according to Soap Opera Digest.

Deidre Hall and Shawn Christian on the Saturday Today Show

Fed bails out GE, parent company of NBC 12 times!

ShareThose dunderheads that took the number one network NBC, from first place to dead last with their terrible creative decisions, apparently suck at math too.  GE took 16 billion from taxpayers in 2008 even with us being mandated to buy their mercury filled light bulbs.  GE sucks.  Hopefully NBC will do better under Comast.  Here's the Washington Post story on all the companies that took taxpayer money from the Federal Reserve.  And no, NBC never disclosed that they took taxpayer money during any of their newscasts.  Makes you wonder how that affects their news coverage.  Hmmmmmm.

DOOL casts nuAbby Deveraux

The actress is set to air in mid February.  Sorry, still no Matt Ashford news.  You can read about the new brunette actress here.

The Diva's live tweets from today's eppy

In case you missed today's pretty decent episode of Days of Our Lives, here's a sneak peek from my twitter page:


mmmmm....Bricole. The bedroom set actually looks good.

Hope in jail s/l needs to end asap. Set looks awful. Are those blocks really supposed to look real?

Bo and Santana

Jenn looks pretty in purple


Dare we hope that Carly is truly most sincerely dead?

I know a missed a few eppies, but isn't Dan giving Carly cpr a danger to his health?

Kate's daughter in law is fighting for her life, and Kate had nothing to do with her ill health! lol

solitary confinement for stealing a cell phone? that's harsh!

Hope being away from her family probably would be good for her mental health.

Why does Phil want Kate out of the hospital so badly?

Stefano's pony idea is a good one.

lol at Stefano calling EJ an idiot.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....EJ's about to drop the Kate bomb.

Thank God for the DiMeras bringing the spice, the rest of the eppy is so dull.

So Carly gave Jenn to give Bo a germ infested note. Nice.

Wow, Ej liked Kate around the house. Oh, I bet he did!

Ohhhhhhhhh...she certainly know how to fake it! 15 yard penalty for a low blow from EJ.

Just curious on how EJ knows Kate "fakes" it?

I know a missed a few eppies, but did Maxine get the virus? She gave cpr to the original victim.

Whoops. Phil spots Melanie holding Nathan.

Bo would pay $1000 to be bored for five minutes, obviously he hasn't watched DOOL lately.

Didn't Dr. Death say that Arianna was going to be fine too? I'd worry if I were Philip.

Holy cow! Bo gets a clue! And without his notebook and his thinking chair. lol

Brady was so distraught about Mel that he slept with Nicole. lol

Oh...Ej smells sex on Nicole.

No!!! Dan, DON'T kiss the baby. WTF Carly?

Nothing says romance better than quarantine. lol

Bo questioning Phil's desire to be a dad, when he technically didn't have sex with Hope when she conceived Zac and Ciara.

Gina and Santana!

Stefano is going to let Kate squirm some.

That's not fair. Why can't Nicole have Brady and Sydney? Decisions, decisions.

Tomorrow looks good. Have to work, maybe I'll get lucky and be sent home early again. Today's eppy was pretty good. *bye*

Review of "A Secret in Salem"

Emmy winning former head writer of Days of Our Lives, Sheri Anderson, first book, "A Secret in Salem" dropped last week.  I tried to keep this spoiler free for everyone.

Overall, I truly enjoyed reading this book. For any DOOL fan from the 1980s, this book will seem quite nostalgic of the good ole Days.  The book has a ton of adventure, romance, and passion for any die hard fan.  The locations are lush playgrounds of the rich and famous.  The book mostly takes place in Monte Carlo, Switzerland, and London.  All the characters are beautiful and rich.  I have been complaining for years about the lack of glamour on DOOL.  If I want to watch blue collar characters, I would look out my window.  It is always interesting to read about the rich and famous and all their self-inflicted problems.

The book stars Charlotte "Charley" Gaines and her dysfunctional family in Monaco. Charley is dealing with her parents' secrets. That is not to say that the DOOL characters are supporting only.  They are not.  John and Marlena have their own storyline, as well as Shawn, Belle, and little Claire.  Abby Deveraux and Chelsea Brady have more of  supporting roles.  There is also guest appearances by Jack and Jennifer Deveraux and Shane Donovan.   Eventually, John, Marlena, Belle, Shawn, Abby, and Chelsea get entangled in Charley's life.

There are plenty of things to love about this book for John/Marlena and Belle/Shawn fans.  All four characters are written in character.  Sheri's version of Shawn Brady is more mature than the man who left Salem, which was much needed, in my humble opinion.  There is plenty of romance and sex for these two couples.  John and Marlena fans finally will get the happy ending they were deprived of in 2009.  After reading this book,  you cannot help but scratch your head on why J&M did not get this type of ending almost two years ago.

Sheri Anderson also has a gay character in the book.  DOOL has resisted the trend to have a gay storyline the last few years.  There is not a gay storyline in this book, but the character is written in a very modern way.  I will not spoil who it is, but this character is out and is widely accepted by his family.  It is quite refreshing to see a gay character without the typical soapy angst of coming out.

Overall, "A Secret in Salem" does not disappoint.  The only problem I had with the book has to do with one of Charly's family secrets.  I am trying to be vague, but this one revelation reminds me too much of Rex and Cassie's true parents being revealed.  I was hoping for more of a realistic resolution.  The book is a must-read for J/M and Shelle fans.  Other fans like myself, will still enjoy this book.

I would love to hear everyone's opinion of the book.  Please post a comment if you wish.

Free at last!!!

The fab five share a toast not knowing that Vivian has made it out of the sarcophagus. Melanie arrives and demands to know why Phillip missed Ari’s service. Victor tells Melanie that they were all celebrating closing a deal at Titan and lost track of time. Mel also asks Brady why he also missed the service because yeah… Gabi and Rafe noticed. Brady apologizes to Melanie and tells Melanie that he’ll head back to the Pub to apologize to Gabi and Rafe in person. Melanie asks Phillip to tell her what happened today… and she begs him NOT to lie. Phillip asks Melanie to trust him because he can’t tell her what’s going on.

Brady and Nicole arrive at the Pub and asks that Nicole please keep her quiet while they are there. Brady attempts to leave, but Justin asks him to stay because he is mentioned in Arianna’s will. Sami confronts Nicole and asks her why she’s come to the Pub. Sami reminds Nicole that Sydney isn’t there and that she’ll never see her daughter again. EJ overhears the conversation and informs the two of them that he’ll make sure that neither of them see either of his children. Justin then asks EJ to stick around while he reads Arianna’s will.
Vivian is rescued by her faithful servant Gus. Gus tries to get Vivian to leave with him before the gang discovers that she’s free. Vivian tells him no, that she has other plans. Gus and Vivian decide to get their revenge on the gang. Vivian calls Maggie to announce her return to Salem. Vivian asks Maggie to meet her at the mausoleum so that they can discuss Victor’s soul. Maggie arrives at the mausoleum to find Vivian and Gus. Vivian tells Maggie that she had been stuck in the sarcophagus. Vivian tells Maggie that Victor put her in there so that he could pursue Maggie. Maggie thinks the idea is ridiculous… and only something that Vivian would come up with. She tells Vivian that there is no way that she could have been in the coffin… and then Vivian tells Maggie about the conversation that she had with Victor and how she took his hand. Maggie flashed back to the conversation that she and Victor had and realizes that Vivian is NOT lying. Maggie suggests that they call the police because Victor can’t get away with putting Vivian in the coffin. Vivian tells her not to worry – that Victor will pay and hurt worse than anything he ever did to her. Vivian and Gus leave the sarcophagus… and leave Maggie behind in Vivian’s place.
Justin tells Sami, Rafe and EJ that Arianna made up a will and left several items to friends and family. Sami and EJ talk about what is in the box that Justin brought along with him. EJ believes that Arianna’s proof that he needs is in the box. Rafe and Gabi are surprised by the fact that Ari even had a will. Sami suggests that they read the will while everyone is still at the Pub. Justin breaks the news that Arianna’s will is actually a video, which kinda creeps everyone out. (Me too!) They watch the video… Ari leaves Rafe her car… because her car will always be cooler than his. She asks him to take care of their mother, call her once a week and tell her that he loves her because she needs to hear it. Arianna leaves Gabi her jewelry and DVD collection as well as a request to take care of big brother Rafe. Gabi asks to pause the DVD and leaves. Before Justin starts the tape, he reveals what Ari left for EJ – a statue of St. Anthony, the patron Saint of miracles. Sami looks like she’s just witnessed a miracle of her own. Ari leaves the rest of her belongings to Brady.

Chad stops by his “Dad’s” office… thinking that he finally wanted to see him and reconcile. Much to Chad’s dismay, he only wanted Chad to pick up the mail that arrived at the house for him. Chad opens the envelope with his birth certificate and reveals who his real father is. Chad arrives at the DiMansion and demands to know where Stefano is. He runs into Will and when he discovered that Kate and Stefano aren’t home he takes off. Will follows him down to the pier. Chad wants to know who is behind this cruel joke – trying to make Chad think that he’s Stefano’s son. Will offers to help Chad anyway that he can.
