Days Opinion 1/23/06 by
First I have to express my deepened heartbreak that
Arianne Zuker (Nicole) opted not to extend her contract. Nicole has
been one of my favorite characters since she debuted as a waitress at
Salem Place. We have watched her develop from a naÔve fashion model to
a conniving and almost heartless drunk. Whether she is acting in drama
or comedy scenes I only predict the best for her and her future as an
actress. She will be deeply missed, and never forgotten. Apparently
the last scheduled date is around February 20th.
In more uplifting news Farah Fath (Mimi) has resigned her contract
keeping her around until 2008, which I am ecstatic about. Mimi is
another of my favorites and to know that she will be sticking around
will guarantee that I will be watching to see this up and coming
Every year there is one actor that Iím am just so
impressed with and right now it is Kristian Alfonso. The way she has
captured the torment of losing a child is eerie. The emotions that a
parent would feel has been performed so intently that if you didnít
know any better you would think this is real.
There is no way to describe the heart wrenching
performance Kristian Alfonso is currently portraying. This is with out
a doubt the best acting Kristian has ever done and I am amazed with
the layers she has exposed for Hope. Kristian is like fine wine she
only improves with age, and I cannot wait to see where Kristian takes
Hope next, because she can only go up from here.
Jennifer and Frankie have to be the cutest non-couple
right now. They are just wonderful together, and even if nothing more
comes of their relationship except friends at least we get little
glimpses of sparks. Jack and Jen will be back together sooner or later
it is just wonderful to revisit the good past.
Christie Clark is back and better than ever. Christie
has always been a great actress but maybe I forgot how great she was
while she was gone but all I can say is that it is so great that she
is back. The way she talked about losing her company and crying real
tears my goodness I was almost convinced that Austin was a jerk.
I do feel bad for Austin though. I mean he was very
excited to have taken over his first company and is already hated by
the woman he loves. Now he needs to revamp High Style and allow Carrie
to be a part of the renovation. It will not make up for the brutal way
Austin acquired the company but at least he will be trying to make a
I hope that Austin and Carrie work this whole mess out
quickly because Carrie and Lucas as a couple, and Austin and Sami
together just isnít working for me.
The big story is Billie taking the blame for killing
Zack to protect Chelsea. Personally, I understand where she is coming
from. If I were a parent I wouldnít want to see my child go to prison
either but the fact remains that when the truth comes out everyone
keeping Chelseaís secret will be in a heap of trouble. If Chelsea
would have come forward the moment she believed she killed Zack she
might have had a fighting chance. Now I think her fair trial will not
be possible because she is knowingly allowing another person to take
the blame for something she did.
Billie in order to be a good role model for your
daughter you need to have her fess up and take responsibility for her
own actions otherwise what will you be teaching her.
I am happy for the fact that Clair will be all right,
but the entire story of Zack dying to save Clair was incredible. When
the truth finally comes out that Clair is actually Bo and Hopeís
granddaughter I think the healing will be able to begin but until that
time it will be devastating for Hope and Bo.
Marlenaís life is never dull! She is suffering from
amnesia and dangling from hospital ledges while attempting to be
killed from psycho Lois. Even though Iím not particularly found of the
direction of the Marlena/Alex story nonetheless it is suspenseful.
When Lois grabbed that lead pipe and struck Marlenaís head I was in
disbelief that it happened, and then to see her gripping the edge of
the ledge it was very suspenseful.
I have to admit that Days of our Lives has the most
talented cast currently. I have watched a lot of daytime dramas and
none of the other cast compares to the talent of Days of our Lives.
Hey, Itís just what I think!
