This is news I did not expect to see in my half-awake state this morning (or any morning come to that!):

Allison Sweeney (Sami Brady) is quitting Days of our Lives

Story is here: ; if anyone wants me I'll be simultaneously trying to wake up and pick my jaw up off the floor!

+ KELLY AND VAL ARE GOING TO THE FINALS!!!! Seriously, this is brilliant news to wake up to on a dark Wednesday morning! I have absolutely no doubt that Golden Boy is going to win another mirrorball trophy, but I would love to see either Kelly/Val or Melissa/Tony cause a huge upset next week....

+ I've started watching some soaps on YT again.... GH is really kicking ass and taking names these sweeps, AJ's return has really impressed me and it feels like a soap again, if that makes any sense at all! Am DREADING watching yesterday's clips though - seeing the gifsets on tumblr have already made me teary!

+ Greg Vaughan started on Days of our Lives last week, so I've been YTing his scenes as well - I've mostly given up on Days, because as a fan of Jack Devereaux and Matt Ashford, there are really only so many times you can watch your favourite character be killed off. (I can't believe I just typed that sentence....) But I like what I've seen of his Eric so far, and the sibling chemistry he has with Ali Sweeney was nothing short of adorable. Unfortunately, they're telegraphing the story like crazy - if this isn't Days take on The Thorn Birds, I'll eat my hat! (Though I did love Meggie and Father Ralph!!)

+ Have been listening to "Just a Fool", the Blake Shelton - Christina Aguilera duet on repeat since last week because it's so damn good, delighted to see them perform it on The Voice this week! You all need to listen to this one!

In what I found to be a surprise, Bill Bell Jnr has told TV Guide that Ridge will neither be killed off nor presumed dead, he's just going to be off the canvas for a while.

Here's the link:

He also says that Ridge will be back, so it looks like there's going to be a recast. Not too sure how I feel about that - Ronn Moss may not be the best actor in the world but he is Ridge Forrester.

Names have been mentioned for possible recasts, including Grant Aleksander (ex Philip, GL). All I can say is God help me, if that came to pass I would be all the way bank into this dreadful show!!

One way or another, i'll be YTing this!!

And on other I'm out then they pull me in news, Greg Vaughan has started taping his new role on Days of our Lives - he's playing Eric Brady (last played by Jensen Ackles) and judging by a pic that Kristian Alfonso tweeted over the last few days, he's now a priest! Link to the story with all the deets is here and the link to KA's pic is here

So, I suppose our next guessing game is who's going to tempt Eric from his vows??

Crystal Chappell fired from Days of our Lives

Crystal announced the news herself on Twitter.... given that she's one of the most popular actors in the medium right now, I think this is a huge mistake.

On the bright side, she's developing a new webseries - details here

Holy moly, it's all happening in US soaps today!!

Just saw on twitter that Dena Higley has been fired as Head Writer at Day of our Lives; no word yet on replacement.

Also, Rick Hearst has been bumped to recurring over at B&B; a dumbass move if ever I heard one!!

Am looking forward to what's going to break next!!

Have just YouTubed Crystal's first scene back on Days of our Lives as Carly Manning - all I can say is Holy Moly, that's how you make an entrance!! (And also, if I hadn't known that was Michael Sabatino, I would not have recognised him!) Link is here:

Also, found this on my Twitter this morning; that it looks like Ali Bastian is falling for her professional dancing partner Brian Fortuna: LINK I'd believe this before I'd believe that anything is going on with Kristina and Joe; that one screams showmance to me!!

Now, off to watch the second half of Celtic vs Rangers...
