Tony and Andre in the quicksand clip from

ShareThis scene was one of the most memorable scenes from my childhood. I was really scared that Tony would die in the quicksand. lol I don't advocate violence against women, but I'm glad Stefano punched out annoying Jasmine.


ShareWell, our challenge to the Bold and the Beautiful didn't last long. I still say, if Y&R wasn't on at 12:30 with no competition the ratings wouldn't be so high for that show.

Adrienne bartending at the Cheating Heart. Chad asks for a job.

EJ is surprised that Sami rejected his offer of joint custody. Rafe takes Sami's side. #rollseyes

Hurricane Sami shows up at the K-Mansion asking for free legal advice from Justin.

I wish there was a way to mute Rafe only on the show.

I like the Scarlett O'Hara-esque drapes at the KMansion. Obviously Justin doesn't know about Sami shooting EJ. He wants to go to court.

Nicole wants to know if EJ is sincere that she's a good mother. I forgot Sydney's b-day is coming up.

Magic shows up to get Chloe. Daniel wants Vic nowhere near Chloe. Daniel tells Magic what Chloe did.

ShareMan, the show was dull Wednesday. I should be able to tweet live at 3 pm today for Thursday's eppy. Let's hope it's better.

Holy cow, it's the Cheating Heart set! Phil sees Chloe there. Ask where their son is. Good question.

Jenn pickpockets Dr. Frankenstein. He gets another call.

Safe at their apartment. Rafe tells Sami how nice EJ has been. Sami likes the custody agreement. EJ is on the phone, calls Stefano.

Nicole is at the DiMansion. She wants to know what's going on in the basement. She says she knows what they are doing down there.

Maybe we need to start a drinking game every time Dr. F. gets a call.

Rafe is actually giving EJ the benefit of a doubt. Rafe tells Sami the EJole wedding is probably off. Like that color on Sami.

Nicole thinks it's a physical therapy room for Johnny. Good idea! But, nope.

Chloe left Parker with Maggie.

Kate gives Melanie a gift. It was Philip's music box.

Kate tells Melanie that Philip wants to be there for her. Mel tells her to go talk to Chloe.

Our blog about Austin Peck's firing from As the World Turns is still our most read blog post. You can read that here.

Diva's Matthew Ashford interview ready for playback!


Many thanks to Matthew Ashford (Jack, Days of Our Lives; Steve, The Bay) for doing our interview tonight. Thanks to all the callers and the peeps in our chat room. Tonight's show had a very big live audience for us. To listen to the archive, you can use the player here on the blog or our blogtalkradio page.

Please go to to buy a Matt's Musings calendar. All the proceeds go to Retinoblastoma International. Matt announced during the show to type in the promo code: "matt" for a discount on the calendar. Please spread the link to the RBI website to all your Matt Ashford fan friends. Thanks!

Matt Ashford's calendar for Retinoblastoma International

Matthew Ashford created a calendar to raise money for Retinoblastoma International. He co-founded RI and serves on its board. Matt's daughter, Emma, has retinoblastoma. Here are some comments from buyers of Matt's calendar:

Reactions to “Matt’s Musings”:

“The calendar really is beautiful. The images online don't do it justice. Tonight, I was looking at RBI's page. A woman just lost her young son to this eye cancer right before New Year's. And another family was gearing up for surgery for their three-year-old child before Christmas. Matt and Christina must hear these stories all the time. It’s heartbreaking. I’ll gladly skip a few lattes at the coffee shop to help out. Thank you, Matt, not only for creating the calendar for us to enjoy, but for fighting the good fight to help
children and their families. God bless.”

“Thank you, Matt, for using your talent for a worthy cause, and for sharing it with the rest of us.”

“The first time I became aware of Matt’s drawing ability was while he was playing the character of Jack on Days of our Lives. Jack had lost his voice and was reduced to using a whiteboard and a marker pen to communicate. He (Matt) would sometimes “doodle” in the margins. Later, Matt appeared on a celebrity game show where drawing was essential, and you could tell he had talent. But those times only offered brief glimpses of what he could do. It is nice to finally see samples of his work. A man of many talents!”

“Pretty coooooooooolllllll, just received a treat, your calendar. … I will put it in a place of honor in my office ...”

“Matt! I'm so delighted and thrilled by what you've done! Each drawing is special, but together they're amazing in how they all fit together and tell a story -- I love the snowman who melts down to nothing and then is reborn as a "rain" man a la Gene Kelly. And the kid chasing after the school bus! lol. I love how apples become letters and how letters become flower stems. In general, I'm in awe of the poetry of words and images - how you composed each piece – just wonderful.”

“Ordered [another one] today...can't wait to give it to my neighbor. She's a huge fan of yours too! I know I love my calendar.”

“My niece will probably use her copy as a coloring book (I hope Matt won’t mind). But I want to keep mine just the way it is. This is a great way to support a great cause!”

Basic Information:
All proceeds from the sale of this calendar go to support the work of Retinoblastoma

Not only did my son spill o.j. on my table once, he does it again 10 minutes later. #groundedforlife

Victor passes out the champagne. He gets a divorce and his company back the same day. Victor is proud of Brady. He mentions Justin!

Freshly showered Vivian shows up at Maggie. She tells her about the divorce. She thanks Maggie for getting off the island.

According to Viv, everyone lies, "must be something in the drinking water." Calls Maggie the biggest liar.

Jenn says she's "married, sort of." Jenn tells Daniel that she has an ethical problem with using ppl to help her "friend." Hope is doomed.

Daniel tells Jenn to go for it.

Nicole gets a kiss on the cheek. EJ goes in to see Johnny. Rafe walks in with chocolate milk.

Viv says Maggie is lying to herself about her reasons to stay away from Victor.

Jenn pickpockets Dr. F's keys.

It's the Diva's 2nd anniversary!


And they say this blog wouldn't last a weekend. I'm serious, I read the posts. lol We're still here and having fun. Thanks so much for supporting us the past two years. Time has flown. My intention from day one was to express the opinion of the Days of Our Lives fan who hated the James E. Reilly crap-fest, and preferred the romance/adventure story lines of the 1980s.

Ode to Dr. Dan


Diva Spy Network contributor, Anna, wrote this magnificent poem about Dr. Daniel Jonas in 2008. Anna recited it for us during last night's blogtalkradio show.

Ode to Dr. Dan
Christmas 2008
I don't see an Ejami, Lumi, Tanna or Date, I see us bound by the love of DanHate;
We are like snowflakes, no two are alike,,,but we all want to see Dan leave town on his bike;
Despite the forced pairings and dumb plot device, we know who's been naughty and who has been nice.
Sure, we may want Ejole, or an angel and cupid, or simply for EJ to not look so stupid;
We may want a Safe, or God forbid Chan, but there's no mistaking our disgust for Saint Dan.
While some may like Chex or have low self esteem, we all wish we hadn't seen Dan's nasty dream;
Dan is a perv and a creep we agree, and none want to see what's under his tree!
It's not his fault, it's the writers' pen, but let's just hope he won't touch her again.
There's something familiar about Chloe and deer, that special look when cars come near;
We don't want to see it, the grope or the looks, fore Chlan is just gross, in most of our books!
Please writers please, have mercy on us, and throw someone else, under the bus!!!

Circa 2008 couple names:
Date=Daniel and Kate, Chan=Chelsea and Daniel, Chlan=Chloe and Daniel (Daniel gets around….)
Chex=Chelsea and Max (barf); Chuncle (not in the Ode but another name for Chelsea + her Uncle (Max).

Diva's episode 28 ready for playback!


But we love hearing your opinion.  Tonight Anna, Madeline, Marianne, and I were joined by Angela.  This is a must listen episode just to hear Anna's poem, "Ode to Dr. Dan."  Absolutely hilarious.  Thanks to all the chat room vets and the newbies for cracking us up.  You can listen to the show on the player here on the blog or at our blogtalkradio page.

Ratings bump

ShareRatings are very good. IMHO, most of the scripts are good, very witty. I do like the faster pace of the show. It seems like someone learns a secret a day. BUT....the storylines in general are still awful.

Friday's screaming at old ladies tweets

Here's today's live tweets. Don't forget to listen to our blogtalkradio show tomorrow to hear what we think about this week's Days of Our Lives.

Chloe stops by Stephanie's to bitch about Caroline.

Maggie hugs Nathan at her house. Mel's at Daniel's place. Philip shows up.

Repeat from yesterday, Stefano tells his grandkids' photos about his scheme. Kate over hears. Says the EJ truce is phony.

Kate decides she doesn't want to know what Stefano is up to. He wants to tell her. #holycow

Rafe asks if Gabi wants to tuck in Will while he's holding Sydney.

Nicole wants EJ to spill on whether or not they are marrying.

lmfao Stefano's not confessing to anything.

Rafe talks to Sami over the phone. She's spending the night off screen in Johnny's hospital room.

EJ wants to still marry Nicole, and she gets to see Sydney.

Mel tells Phil that cutting him off completely isn't fair. Mel wants to know why Phil doesn't think about Parker. #birthcontrolfordummies

Nathan tells Maggie he wants a chance with Melanie. He thinks God arranged this for Mate. God or Vivian?

Chloe barges in to Stephanie's place looking for Caroline. She's there. I thought she was on home arrest? #spdsucks

For the record, hubby bothers me more often during #DOOL than my little kids.

Gabi is giving EJ the benefit of a doubt, Rafe is still bitching.

Kate's not buying Stefano's denials. Stefano tells Kate that EJ said he doesn't love Sami anymore.

Gabi tells Rafe he's the winner, the hero. The Diva leaves the room to go throw up.

Nicole is shocked that EJ wants a big wedding at a church. EJ says he's changed. Sounds like EJ and Phil have the same dialogue.

Kate fills Stefano in on the Parker pickle. Stefano asks if any Brady has respect for the law. lmfao Kate hopes Phelanie works it out.

Kate tells Stefano Melanie is pregnant. Kate tells Stefano she wants Parker away from Chloe.

Caroline says it was wrong to change the results. Chloe's still screaming. Tells Caroline she's going to pay.

Melanie insists Phelanie is done.

EJ is almost convincing telling Nicole he really wants to marry her. #hotdamn

Chloe tells Caroline she will testify against her. Like she would ever make it to trial. Caroline's not doing well.

Nathan knows Maggie knows something. She tells him to go talk to Melanie.

Stephanie asks Philip to get Chloe out of her apartment.

Stefano offers his help to Kate about Philip. Stefano wants Kate to admit that she's happy Danloe ended. She admits it, but wants Parker.

EJole almost kisses. EJ seduces her into saying "yes."

Had breaking local news, missed some DOOL probably.

Kate wants to know why Nicole is there. EJ says they are marrying. Stefano wants to talk to him.

Chloe flips out, and says that she (Chloe) might as well be dead. Philip gets her out. Nathan shows up at Daniel's.

Rafe keeps teasing Gabi that he's going to give Will the birds and bees talk. He thinks they are too young. Just guessing, aren't they 18?

Rafe gets a delivered envelope from EJ.

EJ tells Stefano they are going to need Nicole once Rafe is out of the way.

Caroline seems fine after the Chloe attack. Caroline's willing to do the time. I wonder if Santana would be interested in her organs.

Phloe on the nice pier. Phil tells Chloe they need to blame themselves, not Caroline. They comfort each other over their broken marriages.

Nathan wants to talk about the future. Mel says she's having Phil's baby and closes the door on Nathan.

EJ will send tomorrow a new child custody agreement to Safe.

EJ thinks Sami will fall apart without Rafe, so he needs Nicole to be mommy. Stefano and EJ toast their plans.

Preview: Kate tells Phil to push Chloe off a cliff. Chloe wants Daniel, Hope asks Nathan how he got involved in the prison organ scam.

Phil got a little nervous when Mel calls him. She wants to meet.
