Quote:Thanks - no problem. How about a J&M cover and we'll call it even. (Just kidding. Thanks for responding! ) And a joint interview with Drake & Deidre (and I'm not kidding)
Quote:I will certainly look into that! I hadn't noticed. :-)Steph Can you also find out what's up with John's hair? What's with the spikey Christopher Walken look?
Quote:Thanks, Chappy! Check out the next issue. They're on the cover again. Steph I wish my new subscription hadn't started yet. The attention this couple gets is disturbing.
Quote:Hi,I did speak to Joe and his interview will be in the next issue on sale (next week's issue. Sami/EJ/Lucas on the cover). Steph Thank you.

They won again this week and their pic still wasn't printed
Hi, Stephanie, I was wondering if there was any word on Martha Madison,yet? I noticed that Philip and Victor were talking about Belle, on Thursday's episode, last week I believe, and I was just wondering if that was a sign that she might be coming back?
Steph, could you please let TPTB know that to fans, Love scenes are for the fans of that couple, they are not inter-changeable. I still want to see what was cut from the John and Marlena love scenes in flash back. Having read the spoilers for next week, with John being arrested, It would be a perfect time right now for Marlena to reflect on that night and what she was feeling. What was described in your mag article sounded like it was fun and sexy and different and fans of J&M were very disappointed and just want a chance to see it.Also, have you heard any word yet if John and Marlena will be involved in something for the summer? Was very disappointed to hear that Stefano would not be back to finish the story with John and Marlena. Thank you.
I know what you mean. They cut Tony & Anna's love scenes too.
Please let TPTB know that J&M fans are still angry our love scene was cut after it was so heavily promoted and not all of us buy their BS about most of what they filmed actually aired. Deidre and Drake described in detail a very sex and fun love scene and that's what I want to see!
I have an odd question. Why is it that I never get the DOOL cover delivered to my house? I always get the other cover (Angie and Jesse), yet the local stores have the DOOL cover. It happens almost every time. How do you guys decide which subscribers gets which cover?
I can't believe I'm off to buy another SOD because AS/JS are on the cover. Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you.And boy, did my eyes about pop out of my head at the hotness of those love scenes. They were exquisite.
Please tell me that Tony and Anna did not get married off screen?
Yes, Steph, could you please, please, please, find out if Tanna has an on screen wedding?
Why ARE there two covers? I never quite understood that.Quote:I have an odd question. Why is it that I never get the DOOL cover delivered to my house?

Hi Stephanie!So, what is the deal with Phloe? Their fans have been waiting years and years to have them reunite and fall in love all over again, but we're not seeing much progression. Do we have more Philip and Chloe to look forward to?
I kinda think Phloe is a pharce. I get no chemistry between them. I like Nadia, but I just don't believe she is suppose to be with Phillip. Phillip has changed and not in a good way. I liked him when he was back in High School with Belle and Shawn, but since the whole Shawn, Belle, Phillip triangle, he's different. He's meaner, and unfeeling. He's actually becoming more like a DiMera than a Kirakis. Victor can be cold at times but he does have some warmth to him. But, Phillip now he is cold. Chleo, run for the hills. You might his next casualty.
That's what I love about Phloe - Chloe is the one who can pull him out of this darkness. They had such a fantastic love story that was screwed by JKJ announcing so early that he would be leaving when his contract had ended, and Phloe fans never got their payoff. I think Chloe can return Philip's heart (like she did this past week with their playful scenes - Philip actually laughed. That's the first time I've heard him laugh in the last year). Phloe fans have been waiting eight years for this to happen, and I really hope TPTB are smart enough to capitalize on their wicked chemistry!
Hello Stephanie, I just wanted to thank you for the GORGEOUS cover with Drake and Tamara on it. The cover story where Jawn turns to Ava sounds so EXCITING...I can't wait to see these scenes!
I just wanted to say Thank you for the gorgeous Deidre pics in the current issue! The cover shot is beautiful and the inside shots are absolutely gorgeous.I can't wait for Deidre to be back on screen and for J&M to be reunited
LOVE the cover shot and pics of Deidre. Thanks! I am eagerly waiting Marlena's return. I just wish Days didn't feel the need to ship Marlena out of town whenever they want to try to put John with another woman LOL. Will John and Marlena reconnect when she returns?
Another thank you Steph for the great cover of Deidre! I even loved the pictures inside the mag more. Thank you also for the interview. I like what Deidre had to say at the end about the future of John & Marlena. Deidre and Drakes scenes last Friday in the jail were awesome. I remember Drake talked about them in your last issue and he was right. There is definitely something going on between them....John has feelings he just hasn't been able to fully comprehend yet for Marlena. And she does love him. I just wish she didn't have to leave again. Will things between John and Marlena be heating up in a good way when Marlena gets back to town?
hey steph just another rabid ejami fan here had to say how much i adore ej and sami, when i get a day when they dont have scenes together, i feel so empty but when i do have ejami scenes i swear i get butterflies just watching them, they are so magical, i have never bought SOD ever before but the two ejami covers i bought several copies for myself and friends....they are hot hot hot...the only reason i watch and the more covers i get and ejami stories the more money i will be spending on the magazine, thanks a million
Stephanie I have two questions for you.Will you ask Jay K. Johnson(Phil) if he's engaged to marry a girl name Tricia Newsom at Michigan State?Are you going to have pics in SOD of the DHs MC tour? Thank you very much.
Stephanie II got 2 Drake and Deidre questions.Drake are John and Marlena ever going to talk about John beating Marlena up in Ireland and how he gets his kicks out of making her miserable and unhappy?Deidre Marlena is beautiful, rich,smart and a doctor why does she stay and take John trampling all over her heart?The DHs need to do a PSA at the end of one of the shows after John purposedly hurt Marlena again which we know will keep on happening.
Hi Stephanie, I just wanted to thank you for the Jawn and Ava article. It was a JOY to read and after seeing the picture you guys used of Java dancing, I'm counting down the hours until their date airs. I'm REALLY happy that Jawn FINALLY decides to let Marlena go, as a Drake fan I don't like it that my favorite character allowed himself to be degraded by his wife. I really love the fact that he and Ava have a connection that he has never experienced before and I can't wait for the next chapter of this story! Thanks again for the Java feature!
I also want to thank you for the Jawn and Ava article. It's so refreshing to see Jawn feeling comfortable with someone who accepts him for who he is NOW, rather than always making him feel that he's not good enough. I've really loved all the coverage you've given to Drake over the years, and his interviews are always fun to read. Keep up the great work!Oh, one other thing, will you be putting any pictures and a report from Monte Carlo in an upcoming issue? THANKS!
I always get a kick out of the way Digest gets us to buy the magazine. Marlena is off screen and the story playing out on screen is about Jawn and another new "date" and mixing it up with Lil Philly, and asking Hope about subsex, but the cover has Deidre on it. LOVE THAT! Thanks for the cover and great photos inside of Deidre!
Hi,We have been doing the double covers for about a year or so now. It gives us the opportunity to feature more shows on the cover. We've noticed our subscribers' show preferences are not exactly the same as our newsstand buyers, so we try to please both camps by sometimes running different cover.
Thanks, Jiggs. :-) And thanks to everyone for your lovely emails! Steph
Hi,I will see what I can find out about JKJ. I will be happy to run photos from the MC tour. I have one of Drake/Deidre in the issue on sale 6/24... Steph
Hi Stephanie. Thaao posted on Monday that he chatted with you recently. Is there a new Thaao interview in the works?Thanks for answering my two covers question. My favorite cover was the meerkat one. lol
Steph, do you have any idea if Leann will be involved in Thaao's new storyline, or if she has one coming up?
Quote:Hi,I will see what I can find out about JKJ. I will be happy to run photos from the MC tour. I have one of Drake/Deidre in the issue on sale 6/24... Steph Can't wait to see the pictures of Drake & Deidre in the mag!! The shots coming out of Monaco are all so awesome. It's what I wish was happening on the show right now, lol. Hope they both had a nice time there. Will there be an article?
Im wondering when John gets his memory back and we know he will. What is Ava gona do. This will be like dejavu for her. The same thing happened with Steve (Patch). I think it would set her over the deep end.
Hi Stephanie,Any rumors on the set that we're going to see some of the real John emerge soon? Really, at this point I'll take Marlena or nuJohn having fbs of real John and Marlena together and happy. Higley needs to give us almost to burnt out to care viewers a reason to hang around.
Hi Stephanie,Loved your interview with Deidre Hall! Thank you so much. Glad to hear that Deidre is happy with her life and the show. I have been disappointed with the way the SL is going lately. Marlena discussing a divorce came out of nowhere and it seems like the show just wants to make it OK for John to get involved with other women. What do you think?
I'm with Jules. Enjoyed reading the interview with Deidre Hall. She is always so eloquent. I'm not as happy with Days right now and the way they have been writing Marlena. What is with all the repetitive dialogue and the flip flopping from one episode to the next. It's been the same thing for months and is very disheartening. I actually didn't watch last week, but tuned in to see the J&M scenes on the 4th of July show this week and it was more of the same. Is this story ever going to turn around? Will it be more then just about the disk and more about John and Marlena reaching out to each other? Is there going to be a John and Ava sex scene? I might not care after that anyway. (PS....I won't be watching, but I bet they will show it unlike how they cut the love scene for John and Marlena).
So I got my answer today. It's being reported in spoilers that John and ava have sex. How low. Still not watching and won't be watching that for sure. I am not a fan of the way this story has been chosen to be written. No heart, no soul, but random scenes that in the end mean nothing. I so wish things could have been different. Sa le ve. Deidre and Drake have been great, just don't care so much for how John and Marlena are being written right now.
I really don't like much of what's going on right now in the show. EJ and Sami was the hottest storyline they had and that's stopped for now. Chloe sleeping with Phillip and now Lucas. I hate Stephanie with Max it still grosses me out because they are related by marriage. Bo and Hope sit around and talk about how happy they are while Steve and Kayla are only a backdrop for Stephanie. John and Marlena this is not a love story; it's terrible. Nicole having a past with Max's dad is nonsense. The dock story with stupid as well. Now Victor's in a coma and Stefano is off canvas. I'm so frustrated. Did I mention yet another relative of Chelsea has slept with her man. Plus, he's old enough to be her daddy. Gross.
Hi Stephanie from all the soaps do you think Days writers and eps work harder to turn viewers away than the other soap bosses? I'm asking cause having John and Ava have sex is a major kick in the gut to viewers and they have to know it. Why do they keep doing stuff like this to their fans.
Well I'm glad Tamara Braun's Ava is leaving, too bad it didn't happen sooner. TPTB decided to ruin John Black by having him sleep with Ava which is really pointless since she's leaving soon. I guess they just wanted to send a big FU to the John and Marlena fans. They've destroyed any chance of love story for John and Marlena by writing Marlena so out of character I barely recognize her and by having John treat Marlena so badly and then sleep with Ava. A love story for J&M was promised but it's obvious they have no intentions of giving us that. J&M fans were also told they were getting a love scene but that was cut, I'm betting the John and Ava scene will not be cut and it will be graphic. Days doesn't care their fans so why should their fans care about them. Take a look at your ratings, Corday, that's the fans giving a big FU to you.
Hi all,Sorry I have been out of touch. :-) Thank you for all of the wonderful comments about Deidre's interview; I'm happy you liked it. As for John and Ava, in our issue next week, Drake talks about the story and the characters having sex. Talk soon, Steph
Stephanie- I just now came across this board! It's really nice of you to read and respond to messages. It surprises me there doesn't seem to be much Steve and Kayla representation here, but hopefully that will change soon! S&K fans are hoping to get a good story soon after suffering through the Ava debacle a few months ago. I keep longing for the 80s, but I know they are gone.
Thanks Steph. Unortunately, I won't be buying this mag or watching the show when John and Ava do the deed. I do appreciate your trying to throw a bone to the Marlena fans though. After all, it's Marlena/Deidre/John and Marlena who sell covers, not John and Ava. But no matter how well intentioned you are, the show is not and I know that the show is not aiming to nor is it going to make this John and Marlena fan happy. The next beautiful, glossy John and Marlena cover that will inevitably be printed with the words "the plan to save the show", I will gladly be first in line to buy. And thank you for Deidre's interview
Well I've read the article and I still have no freaking clue why Marlena fans should be happy. Is it because Higley has absolutely no clue what she's doing and is using this story to mock J&M fans and J&M's history? Should I be jumping for joy that there is no connection between J&M, Marlena has given up on NuJohn and that NuJohn isn't drawn to Marlena and he's screwing Ava? Should I throw a party because Days has a headwriter who refuses to give the fans anything worth watching, instead of us seeing Marlena and John falling in love we get this disgusting John having sex with Ava crap??I really don't see anything to be happy about.

That about sums it up for me, lol. Seriously. I haven't watched in three weeks now, looks like I'll be waiting it out at the very least a few more. I think I'm supposed to be happy that Marlena doesn't give up on John? To do that I would have to care first. That caring wasn't established. When they cut the John and Marlena loves scenes, that should have (and it was really) my first clue of what the intentions for this story were. I tried to hang in there. I tried to enjoy a moment or two of Deidre and Drake's chemistry, but that last time when they sent Marlena away again to set up the third party, that was a big in your face red flag. I now dislike nuJohn to the point I don't want to see him in scenes with Marlena. I am sure the 'spin' or 'wrinkle' or whatever it is, is just some new way to keep John and Marlena at odds and in separate stories. No, I'm not happy....was I really supposed to be?
Glad I read these crappy spoilers in the grocery line so I don't have to look at the cover on my table all week. This Marlena fan (more specifically "John & Marlena" fan) is NOT happy. Marlena and John have given up on each other. Thanks a lot Days. I am not stupid enough to believe there is a John & Marlena story on the horizon. As usual the show is stringing us along so we'll "stay tuned". Yeah right. I stopped watching weeks ago and have no plans to return. I prefer to remember J&M the way they were when he died, happy & in love.
Want to add a thank you to Stephanie for asking Drake & Higley about John & Marlena because I'm sure the subject wouldn't have come up otherwise. You and your mag have always been supportive of our cause. I wish Days cared as much about its customers as you do.
Well, if I wasn't a subscriber, I wouldn't bother to go out and buy THIS John/Ava cover issue. Having already read the article online, why would I spend four dollars on reading insults from Dena Higley? I'd save it for my gas tank. I'm still looking for the bright spot in any of this for Marlena fans... maybe since I'm a J&M fan, that's why they just mentioned Marlena fans only. Because there is nothing in that article that gives this J&M fan an ounce of trust in Dena Higley. Just because TB is leaving and John says the sex isn't emotional but physical, is hardly a ray of hope. Higley has pretty much created a new character in RoboJawn. She loves her own characters. RoboJawn is a selfish, stupid jerk and Ava can have him. I mean seriously, what is appealing about him anymore?
Quote: I now dislike nuJohn to the point I don't want to see him in scenes with Marlena. That's it, hops! I wonder if that's their intention? To make John so unappealing and unattractive that you don't even want to see him anymore? I have no clue what John is doing, or what kind of storyline he's got going because I don't tune in to watch him. He's completely FF material to me now. They really should have just kept him dead. This new character isn't what I bargained for when I wrote in to campaign to have him return from the dead. They pulled a bait and switch trick on us. In my state that's against the law
