On September 6th, Days of Our Lives is getting a limited series over on Peacock called Beyond Salem. The week-long event is bringing back several familiar faces that we haven’t seen in Salem for a while.

One of those faces is so iconic to the show that one of her was not enough. Therefore, we will get Lisa Rinna as Billie Reed and RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Jackie Cox as, well, we don’t know, but they look like her, whichever she, she is.

Rinna is not the only star to return. She will be joined by Charles Shaughnessy as Shane Donovan, Thaao Penghlis as Tony DiMera, Leann Hunley as Anna DiMera, Christie Clark as Carrie Brady, Austin Peck as Austin Reed, Greg Rikaart as Leo Stark, Chandler Massey as Will Horton, Zachary Atticus Tinker as Sonny Kiriakis and Peter Porte as Kyle Graham.

What is bringing them all together? Over a long weekend, John (Drake Hogestyn) & Marlena (Deidre Hall) travel to Zurich, Ben & Ciara have a romantic getaway in New Orleans, Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix, and Abe (James Reynolds), Paulina (Jackée Harry), Lani, and Eli vacation in Miami. All find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving stolen jewels which, in the wrong hands, could cause dire consequences for Salem. It’s a race against time for ISA agent Billie Reed as she crosses the globe in search of this missing treasure.

Hopefully, if this does well, we get more week-long specials from the Soap Opera on the streaming service. So, make sure to stream new episodes every day the week of September 6th.

Jackée Harry and Marla Gibbs still have that comedic timing

It has been over 30 years since 227 ended its run. However, the brilliant comedic timing between Jackée Harry and Marla Gibbs is still going strong. The two actresses have been reunited on Days of our Lives, and it is like no time has passed between them.

Gibbs still knows how to give Harry crap, and Jackée can still give her that bitch please look. Something our television screens have been missing.

Thankfully, we don’t have to miss it anymore because the neighbors are no family, as in mother and daughter.

I hope that Gibbs’ short term stint turns into something longer, just like it did for Harry.

The 90-year-old’s first appearance on the Soap Opera is on August 17th, and I can’t wait because trouble has made its way to Salem.

Days of our Lives is getting a limited series on Peacock
July 26th, 2021 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

There was a time when it looked like the sands in the hourglass were done for Days of our Lives. However, the daytime drama has had a resurgence recently. So much so that Peacock is giving it a 5-episode limited season.

To make it even more enticing, they are bringing back names from the past. The first was announced today, and Lisa Rinna will be reprising her role as Billie Reed. Hopefully, they will find a way to get Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso to come out of soap opera retirement for it. How awesome would that be? We will always welcome Bo and Hope back with open arms.

Now that you know that some of our favorites will be back. I bet you want to know what they will be doing and who from the NBC soap will be appearing on it.

Over a long weekend, John & Marlena travel to Zurich, Ben & Ciara have a romantic getaway in New Orleans, Chad visits some old friends in Phoenix, and Abe, Paulina, Lani, and Eli vacation in Miami. All find themselves embroiled in a mystery involving stolen jewels which, in the wrong hands, could cause dire consequences for Salem. It’s a race against time for ISA agent Billie Reed as she crosses the globe in search of this missing treasure. Packed with all of the romance, action, drama, and surprises that only “Days of our Lives” can deliver, fans will spend a week with their favorite Salem supercouples and reconnect with many familiar faces along the way.

Are you as excited about this as I am? I hope it does well so that we can get more of these specials.

Lisa Rinna had a few one night stands with her TV brother

Lisa Rinna did an interview with PEOPLE in the 90s, and she talked about a show she was in that decade. They asked her what was her most surreal moment when she was on Days of our Lives, and she gave them a titillating answer.

“Having an affair with the guy who played my brother,” she said. “Well, not an affair, but a couple of one-night stands with the guy who [played] my brother. Patrick Muldoon and I had like, a thing.”

She is not the only star who can say that. Jennifer Aniston dated her TV brother Charlie Schlatter when they worked together on Ferris Bueller. Schlatter isn’t the only Ferris Bueller to do this; Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Grey also dated for a while.

Dexter’s Micahel C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter took it one step further and got married. And we can’t forget about the Brady Bunch kids or the teens from The Partridge Family.

However, Emily VanCamp gets the award for dating not one but two TV brothers. She dated Chris Pratt when they were on Everwood and Dave Annable on Brothers and Sisters, ironically enough. At least, she married her TV husband in real life, so there is that.

AJ McLean gets to live out his soapy dream

Back when AJ McLean was just a boy and not one of the Backstreet Boys, he watched Days of our Lives with his grandmother.

Now that he is old enough to drive, he got a drive-on so that he could play a driver on the daytime drama. He doesn’t care that it is just a bit role; he is just so happy to be on the show that meant so much to him when he was just a kid.

He concluded the video by saying that he hopes he made his grandmother proud. I am sure he did. How could he not?
