Hey Stephanie! With all of this "death" talk on DAYS surrounding John, Drake's fans are REALLY upset because we feel that Dena should not be having John go through this in October, since it brings back VERY painful memories of when John "died" last October and Drake was let go. Can you please arrange an interview with Drake in regards to how HE feels about the show making it look like John is dying again? Thank you so much! I PRAY that Dena will STOP this and restore John's heath because it is REALLY mean-spirited to put John fans through this again.
Hi Stephanie, am so mad with days, I can't even imagine why they wanted to go that route. The Kate we knew wouldn't hurt her family, even though she does stupid things in the name of family love. She wouldn't hurt her granddaughter by being with Daniel. I guess they will do anything to hold on to the show or to get a better rating, and that won
I am really missing Dansea....I wish for the days when I was on the edge of my seat till it was time for Day' to start. There is just something missing on Day's and it is Dansea!!
I have been watching Days for over 25 years. I have never loved a couple as much as I love Daniel and Chelsea. I have loved them from the moment they met in the park. Their love story was so beautiful. I don't understand why Days cares so little about its fans. There are so many Daniel and Chelsea fans. It seems that every day they give us the finger when they try to pair Daniel with Chelsea's granny. It is so wrong on so many levels. Daniel and Chelsea fans want Daniel and Chelsea together!!!!
I'm extremely disappointed about the direction the Daniel/Chelsea story has taken. This couple has so much promise. There are so many storylines that are just waiting to be told with these two. Like I already said in the Daniel and Chelsea thread, the show wrote them a beautiful story before and I know that they can do it again. I'm still having faith that Daniel and Chelsea will be back together.
I'm still having faith that Daniel and Chelsea are going to get back together! I'm not going to give up.
Stephanie - all of us are DEVASTATED with the break up of Daniel and Chelsea and we are DISGUSTED that Days would even think that putting Kate in the middle of this relationship makes sense. Not since Jack and Jennifer have I seen so many fans rally behind a couple like they have with Daniel and Chelsea. Not only did Days ruin one of the most daring, exciting and passionate love stories, but at the same time, they have runied the character of Kate. They made a huge mess and I need them to fix it. So a big thank you to you! It is so great to see SOD/SOW post all those great letters in support of Daniel and Chelsea. When I receive my copy, I comb thru it immediately to find news on this couple and because of what you are doing, I am remaining hopeful. The fans are dedicated, passionate, and ready to fight! Please give us a cover or a story - TPTB at Days need to know they have screwed up but they can still turn this around. The fans will settle for nothing less.
I am too Stephanie, devastated with what TPTB have done to Daniel & Chelsea's love story....I hope they wise up and let Chelsea give Daniel another chance after all this.... they deserve a chance!!!

True words there!
EWWWWWWWWW! I can't believe Days had Daniel and Kate do the dirty! How disgusting! Even TPTB knew it was disgusting since they didn't show very much. They knew how awful and offensive it would be and it was! The fans did not want to see it! They have ruined Kate in this storyline, they are ruining Daniel and they are ruining the best love story Days has seen in a long time! I want my Daniel and Chelsea back and I want them to stop with the disgusting s/l involving Grandma!
Stephanie, with two little ones I am always behind in my reading and my posting online. I just wanted to say a special thank you for the Daniel & Chelsea in the duos to do it already. They are really such a great couple. Trying to pair him with Kate just shows how much better he is with Chelsea. I am hoping that the road to reuniting Daniel and Chelsea is in our near future.
Please tell me that the show is going to go back to Daniel and Chelsea an that this mess will be over soon. I'm so saddend but what has been done to them.
Hi Stephanie,Do you have any insight as to when we will see some clear direction in a lot of the s/l's they have going right now? It seems that they don't know who to put with who or where a lot of the s/l are going. They start and stop a lot of things. Like what happened with Stefano's proposal to Kate?
I've been wondering that also. What ever happened with the proposal between Stefano and Kate.
Stephanie I have a request. I've been writing an alternative universe Salem and posting it on the NBC boards in protest to the bad writing. Nearly all the posters said they loved my work more than what they were seeing. When some of my ideas started appearing air without credit give, I moved the posting to my blog. Would you please read what I have written and give me your honest opinion. The blog address is http://elfmagic.blogspot.com/ Thanks Theresa Chaze
I was wondering about that proposal as well. It was another storyline that was ended before it really began. I never really understood why it took place to begin with. However, I would have really loved to see Kate go down that road.
Me too. I think Kate and Stefano would have made a great pairing and imagine what that would have done to Roman. It would have been so much fun to see Roman jealous over Kate's relationship with Stefano. Now that's exciting!
Stephanie with all the shakeup at Days I am anxiously awaiting any news regarding Shawn Christian and his contract. Days seems to be interested in the character giving him more storylines and love interests than Sami's had weddings in the 9 months he has been on air. I am hoping that SOD will be able to scoop that contract signing (praying and hoping). Thanks
DOOL makes me sad!!! what have they done to my show??Why dont TPTB listen to the fans? What they did to Chelsea & Daniel s/l is disgraceful. They belong together.
Stephanie, Will your magazine be doing anything special for fans of Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn (John and Marlena DAYS)? BTW, I am officially complaining about subscribers not getting the same cover as the general public. I wanted to get the cover that has Deidre and Drake on the cover announcing the firings, but got a GL cover instead. I feel I am being punished for subscribing... yet I notice that I always get the covers with Eric Braedon
I haven't posted in a very long time. Days has just not been very fun for a long time now. I was really hoping John and Marlena were finally going to get a good story. All the elements were there. My question.... what happened? Scenes that fans were excited about were cut, storylines that appeared to be going some where were dropped and now Deidre and Drake have been fired. It's very sad.
Thanks for all your coverage of John and Marlena and Deidre and Drake over the years, Steph. I will miss them and my viewing "Days" will officially be over after 23 January. Days has just made the biggest mistake in the history of Daytime and I have no doubt that they will ultimately regret it. It is just too bad the fans and the actors have to suffer for it. SOD will suffer too unfortunately, Deidre (and Drake) sell mags. A shame really.
I'd love a special issue devoted to J&M but realistically I'd settle for a tribute. I'm still steamed over not only their firing but Corday's callous comments. He just fired two of the biggest stars in daytime HISTORY and all he could talk about was his stupid spokes on a wheel analogy. He made it seem like they wouldn't take a pay cut when in reality he never gave them the option. I've come to loathe Days and while I hate that D&D were fired I'll be happy to quit watching for good once their final scene airs.Back to the tribute - a cover, a farewell interview, a retrospective and some comments from current and former co-stars would be nice. I appreciate that SOD has always respected J&M/D&D's popularity and their large fanbase.
I am still shocked at Days/NBC's decision to fire Deidre and Drake. No other soap would be so callous to fire such long term stars who have contributed so much to the show. I am also saddened that it appears they were not given the opportunity to stay on with pay cuts as the other big stars were. It makes it even worse to know that their final days will be a rushed end to a storyline that could have been amazing in the hands of a decent writer. I know Days will not give Deidre/Drake or J&M fans any kind of special recognition, but I'm hoping SOD will consider recognizing them with an interview. Thanks for listening!
I'm still hoping that the show goes with Daniel and Chelsea again. I miss this couple so much.
I would love to see a magazine with a complete history of Sami and Lucas. I love this couple and feel their sl was not given the attetion it deserved. I would love to see the complete accurate history of this couple. bryandattilofan Lucas and Lumi Superstars Website

Quote:I'm still hoping that the show goes with Daniel and Chelsea again. I miss this couple so much. I couldnt agree with you more..... what have they done to our couple??
Why is the show insisting on keeping Daniel and Chelsea apart? I can't believe that the show isn't seeing what a great couple they had with them.
I know im also upset they are leaving. The current cast really isnt that interesting. I hope they come back to life someday as far as storylines go.
I really don't like what they are making out of Daniel. He is turning into the hospital [censored] trying to get with his co workers and patients! This is not what should be happening to this character!!!! He should be with Chelsea! I am worried they are trying to set Max and Chelsea up again. What is with that? Philip with these young girls come on! John and Marlena leaving? Where is Steve and Kayla? What is with Nicole? Why does the show make her so pathedic? I like her but they really have her in the wrong storylines! Days needs to focus more on these talented actors and the way they are writing their characters if they even have the people with talent in a story line. Maybe instead of firing Drake and Hall they should get some new writers! Just my opinion!
Will Nicole be revealed as Melanie's Mother?
Hi Stephanie,Will you ask Ken Corday, why he chose to give J/M fans and the viewers such a distasteful, disgusting, obviously well intended screw you send off for John and Marlena? I believe the very least he could do is explain why he chose to take this route. Thank you.
Hello Stephanie,This is my introductory post and I'll use it by saying that though I am disappointed that DAYS is letting go of so many talented vets, I am LOVING Philip & Stephanie together.In my opinion this is the ONE thing that DAYS seems to be doing right. I never bought Philip & Chloe together when she came back. She seems to be such a FLIGHTY character, never really grounded to any one character in Salem. She's an inflatable pool lounger drifting in the sea of storylines.I think Philip & Stephanie have so much chemistry and potential and I like how they haven't jumped in the sack yet. This type of storyline is so reminiscent of the DAYS I used to watch in the 80's.Hope to see more of them in your magazine.
Hi Stephanie, Thanks for the wonderful article on Galen Gering. It was great to hear what's been going on in his life. I always enjoy reading about Galen.
Stephanie,could you please do an interview with Philip and Melanie(Jay Kenneth Johnson and Molly Burnett.).? I just think that they are great together. Some major sparks there. I love the bad boy, bad girl scenario and the cat and mouse game going on between them.
just thouht i would say hi
Hi Stefanie, There are many of us that LOVE Sami and Rafe. We would love to see an interview with both of them in SOD. They have held the Favorite Poll for over 12 weeks now.
Only one thing to say, please bring back Bryan Datillo. He's one of the main reasons I ever tune in anymore and he deserves better than what the show has been doing to him lately. He has more talent than most and his comedic capabilities are never tapped. He deserves a strong storyline and one that let's him develop Lucas into the man we know him to be. Lucas began that journey of maturity when at the 2007 wedding he ignored both his mother and EJ, but the show took it all away when they broke apart Sami and Lucas. Lucas needs to return stronger than ever from rehab, doing his own thing, and then figuring out what he really wants in his life. And we all know that Bryan can do this part and do it well.Not to mention he is one good looking man. What woman wouldn't want to tune in to see this,
Hi everyone,Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I see the requests for a Sami/Rafe interview and will work on that... Hope you are all well. How do you feel about the show these days? As you can see from my blog, I am a bit on the fence about how I feel about Bo, but I am totally into the Bo/Hope/Carly triangle. And I love that Anna is back! Anyway, Happy New Year to you all.... Hope to hear from you soon. Steph
I have mixed feelings about the show right now. I absolutely LOVE BO/HOPE, and I read that Bo and Carly make love and the day that happens; will be the day I do not watch. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE BO OR HOPE WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT EACH OTHER! I think that Bo is being a Hypocrite right now, how can he tell Hope that its not his place to tell her about Carly's secret, but its ok to tell Carly about his and Hope's problems. Now on to the other problem with the show, Phillip, Stephanie, Nathan and Melanie. The 4 of them together is so BORING. Melanie is the only reason I do not ff, she is a hoot to watch and can carry the scene for all 4 of them. Pretty amazing considering she couldn't act when she first came on the show. She has come a long way and I for one enjoy watching her. The Sami/Rafe pairing is awesome. I really love these 2 together, their chemistry is undeniable. I also am enjoying the Sydney SL. Alison Sweeney and James Scott are doing phenominal work. I only hope that Sami and EJ do not get back together....JMO

I only hope that Sami and EJ do not get back together....JMO I've said when talking to friends that if characters are not allowed to explore other love interest then there is no way for the writers to keep them viable. I perfer when characters even in couples I love are split apart and given several new lovers over the course of 5 years and then drawn back to each other. Yet even the best of writers can't keep a couple together forever without making them talktoo's or very supporting players. If you want Bo and Hope to go the way of Doug and Julie then that is not a good thing. I find one of the issues I have had with Days in the past is when they won't split a couple up minus the kidnapping or the brainwashing. I'd rather see couples organically break up over relationship conflicts that stem from past associations, former flames returning, child issues, affairs etc... So I feel that one place where say a soap like Y&R has historically been good is that it was willing to explore other relationships even with popular couples.
