Diva blind item!

Share


Which actor is refusing to come back to Days of Our Lives unless another actor returns also?

You'll never guess.  lol

  1. Missy Reeves? I think she is the only one Corday would really want back and it makes sense TPTB would want to move on from the Jack/Jennifer dynamics with their current antisupercouple attitude. On the other side, Missy knows Jennifer without Jack never worked and is not willing to go through another failure and she is probably not exactly thriled to start her return with another Jack is dead/abandoned me story which is pretty much everything she got to play in her last five years on the show.

    I kind of understand you i love Jack, actually i love him much more than Jennifer who i liked.

  3. I thought Missy had already confirmed via her Facebook page that she would be returning for the memorial. I can't imagine her changing mid-stream, although I'm not saying that's impossible. Plus, isn't Matt involved in a play right now?

    Have either of the DHer's been asked back?

    I can't help but wonder if it is Mary Beth Evans. Stephen Nichols might be on Y&R now, but both soaps are owned by Sony, and Corday does have his hand in some small part of Y&R, so it wouldn't seem totally impossible for SN to crossover for a day or two, if he even wanted to, that is.

    Doug without Julie? Julie without Doug? I don't think so. I don't think any of TPTB are stupid enough to ask one without the other.

    Spill the beans, Diva! You're killing us!

  5. It's hard to imagine any actor turning down work in this economy. Whoever it is can't have serious money worries.

  6. Someone's using their noodle. ;-)

    Can't spill on this one.

  7. I think it might be Mary Beth. I have never seen anywhere that she has "confirmed" her return, whereas Missy posted on her Facebook page that she was returning. Since both shows are owned by Sony, I would think it would be possible for Stephen to cross over if he was willing. How awesome that would be for S&K fans who were denied any kind of exit story if we were allowed to get one final glimpse of S&K together and know they are happy offscreen. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

  8. Let's use that noodle!

    Ok, it's got to be Mary Beth Evans. She certainly wouldn't be in it for the money, seeing how she owns a very successful pie business (and is married to a plastic surgeon). Ok, let's look at the list of who has been reportedly asked back, shall we? By the power of deductive reasoning, we're gonna figure this thing out.

    Jaime Lyn Bauer (Laura Horton)- No, besides who would she want back?
    Christie Clark (Carrie Brady)- No, and again, who would she want back with her?
    Roark Critchlow (Mike Horton)- No, and again, who?
    Maree Cheatham (Marie Horton) - No, same question.
    Bryan R. Dattilo (Lucas Horton)- No, all his buds are still there.
    Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Johnson)- ????
    Patsy Pease (Kimberly Brady)- Shane is back, so she's not it.
    Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) - She has already confirmed she's going back, and Matt is involved in a play during that time frame.
    Lisa Trusel (Melissa Anderson)- No, and again, who would she want back with her?

    Dee and/or Drake have not been asked back, at least not that I know of, so it can't be them.

    Mary Beth has yet to confirm that she will be returning.

    It's got to be Mary Beth Evans. It has to be.

    Come on, Diva! Throw us a bone!!

  9. It has to be Mary Beth! And truthfully, I feel as though TPTB will screw up the S/K relationship with a stroke of the pen, if they're both not present.

  10. I would guess MB also....remember a few years ago Susan Seaforth Hayes was allowed to do a stint on Y&R I think for a memorial for one of the characters... I am pretty sure that they would be willing to let Stephen do a cameo on Days since they are both Sony owned companies

    ReplyDelete
  11. And what a ratings coo that would be! I would think that a boatload of Y&R viewers might just tune in to see SN reprise the role of 'Patch', especially since he is steadily gaining a notable following as Tucker. You know the S&K fans would tune in. Some would more than likely follow him back to Y&R, if they haven't already. Crossovers can't help but boost the ratings, if for nothing but for curosity's sake. But, if it is Mary Beth, I am sure she's not doing it for a ratings coo. It would be pretty obvious that she and SN are intent on keeping the characters of S&K intact.

  12. Well, it what Diva meant was just the Alice´s memorial cameo I agree it could be MBE, probably wanting some more proper closure for Steve and Kayla. If what she meant is some longer (meaning contract) return I stay with the Missy Reeves quess because I think she is the only one who is in the position to have demands like that. Corday will for sure want his next big return for fall to secure renewall for another year and Jennifer is the most logical choice.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah, I think Mary Beth is a likely choice. From the beginning, I've held off on getting excited about MB's return because that list was just those who had been asked...and Mary Beth has not confirmed her return. And, while I can't imagine SN would be interested in returning (he's got a gig and he can't have happy feelings about DAYS), I can see why she'd be hesitant to go back without him. Who knows what they'd say about them.

    Also, since it just a day or two I can't imagine it's really enticing for her on the creative or financial front. Plus, maybe she's got other stuff in the works.

    She's been asked back in the past (prior to their 2006 return) for several of these little short stints, and she always said no. I thought it was possible that she'd rethink because of Frances...but, it wouldn't surprise me if she didn't.

  14. I am going in a different direction, Thaao. and/or Leann, either Thaao is tired of the round robin of"Dead Tony/Andre" and only wants to come back as "Real Tony" with Anna or Leann is reluctant to come back full time without "Tony" after seeing how EJ is the only Dimera who gets any airtime,.and wants REAL closure for TANNA and its fans and a Happy Ever After after the fiasco of Tony's last death?

    ReplyDelete
  15. But isn't Thaao now committed to a play? It doesn't open until May, but rehearsals are certainly going to be taking place well before opening night.

    Maybe someone is holding out waiting for Dee Hall to be asked back.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Leann was happy to come back as recurring and she was never offered a contract even when Thaoo was still on the show so she is hardly in the position to make demands.

    ReplyDelete
  17. To be fair, no actor is acting like a diva about this. It's not a demand.

  18. Farah Fath ! i kid i kid lol

  19. I doubt it would be Missy, she sure didnt mind working with Peter Blake ;) just kidding guys! I wonder if its Drake he wont come back unless Deidre does oh well it's probably MBE.

    ReplyDelete
  20. If you are talking about the Alice memorial, than my guess would be that is is Mary Beth Evans.
    She has declined invitations to do short stints on Days in the past and I havent seen any actual confirmation from MBE in the usual places that she is definitely returning for the Alice memorial. And honestly, (and this is not a putdown to any other actors) I really dont think that any of the other actors mentioned are that committed to keeping the legacy of a soap couple together and committed to working with any one actor in particular that they would turn down a gig for it, JMO.

  21. If Ken Corday had decided he wants Mary Beth to come back now and then for appearances, then I could see her saying no because Stephen's not available and she'd probably want to keep Steve and Kayla intact.

    I'm also apt to guess Missy Reeves, because Corday was reluctant to see her go in 2006, and Missy was tired of TPTB forever denying Jack and Jennifer by killing Jack off so much.

    Honestly, I could see it being either Mary Beth or Missy. I could see either of them taking a stand on this. To come back short term, as a way of paying tribute to Frances? Sure. But long term without their onscreen partners? Maybe not.

  22. Do Diva...got any more clues for us?

    ReplyDelete
  23. it is not Mary Beth cause she is coming back

    ReplyDelete
  24. Where has it been confirmed that Mary Beth is coming back?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I haven't seen confirmation anywhere from Mary Beth that she is definitely coming back. Have you seen something the rest of us have not?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well, Days is said to want John DeLancie. Wonder if he is refusing the offer unless Thaao is asked to come back too. Just a thought.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have to lean with Missy here. Corday never wanted Missy to go, they pleaded for her to stay and she really had to put her foot down about it. She's the one I can see them wanting back long term, and the one I can imagine having the clout to issue a statement like that. The other guesses are all very amazing actors, very talented and respected, but the history of the show in the past 15 years has shown a particular clinginess to Missy that makes me inclined to guess it's her.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm hoping it's Jennifer/Jack (Missy/Matt)!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just had a thought. Could it be Gloria Loring? Not wanting to return without Joe Gallison?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm putting my bets on Marybeth!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Missy's the obvious answer, just because she's probably the person who's off the show that would be most in demand to come back, and Missy's been very vocal in the past about not really liking when Jennifer's seriously paired with anyone but Jack and we know currently Matt's unavailable for returning.

    But at the same time... she's already coming back. I mean, she began filming yesterday. So do you mean coming back for a long-term role? Like she's fine with a guest spot for Alice but wouldn't wanna come back full-time without Matt?

    There are some flaws to that theory though. A) I've heard Matt and Missy have grown apart, B) You said we'd never guess, and obviously Missy is an obvious guess.

    As for Mary Beth, I can't see her making that demand. Stephen's got another job, why would she even bring up the idea of him coming back being a necessity when it's not even possible?

    We're probably all way off. The real question is... are you ever going to tell us?!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nope. It's a blind item for a reason. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I believe it's Diedra Hall. She's not worried about money. But she could say she wants the real Roman Brady to return with her. Wasn't she closer to him than Drake.

    That would be awesome if a) that was the case. And b) they did it. I could totally see Marlena/Roman reunion happen. Just when Sami stopped wanting it. Ha!

    Far reach, I know.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree, it has to be Deidre Hall. TPTB probably want Marlena without John. It would be just like Dee to say thanks but no thanks. Her fans didn't get a decent goodbye storyline, so the least they could do is have both Marlena and John back for Mrs.H's funeral (even if he's still in a wheelchair , recovering slowly and having to return to Switzerland to continue his treatment). That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
