Anna's Letter to TPTB at Days of our Lives
First and foremost, I would like to say that I have been a devoted fan
Days of our Lives for 25+ years. I've been watching it since Tom
alive and he and his wife were young and well. It has become a
tradition in my
house to watch it everyday with my daughter and her daughter. Every
family and I look forward to the special Horton Holiday events. My
and granddaughter look forward most to the Horton Christmas.
regret to say that my whole family, starting today, will no longer
to watch any more future episodes of Days of our Lives, and I will
make it a
point to push all my friends who watch the show to no longer tune
I have read that the show has gotten new writers and if you were to
they are terrible. It is like the writers don't even know their own
character. They may be new, but the viewers are not.
Shawn, Belle and Phillip
~ Whatever happened to the fairytale romance that was when Kirsten
on the show? My granddaughters used to love to watch her and Shawn
episode many years ago. It seems, though, that once you change the
characters themselves have to change with them and that is not right
Belle was never as stupid as she is now. She would have never ended
Phillip for any reason. He was meant to be with Chloe, but no, for
some off the
wall reason, she is with Brady. Phillip and Belle are like brother
sister. Now they both behave like two dogs in heat. The baby

ridiculous story line and now that it is all straightened out, get
over it. He
needs to move on instead of lusting after her and her behaving like
That is not like her regular character, at all. She would have
Phillip on the day of her father's funeral and not to mention in a
She used to have such a strong backbone and would have never
after all the things that went on with Jan. Shawn could have fought
on a regular basis, he would have. But instead, you made him look
wuss and go with Belle's best friend. They were in love, and he
given up. But I understand that every true love story has its
complications. Ok, so you did it, can they be happy now? No!!!
Phillip continues to be
sick and Belle is not any better.
Hope and Bo
~ Everybody's favorite couple is doing ok for now. Except for the part
Hope is withholding very important information from her son, which
never do, because she loves her family. The problems that they were
with the death of their son, Patrick, and Chelsea coming in were
enough to make
somebody die laughing. Hope should have never been with

probably the smartest in the entire show, but yet it was written

horny college student. She is a trained cop, and Patrick should have
been in jail

relationship should be the mirror for Shawn and Belle, but instead
go the way it is supposed to in reality.
Is the joke of Salem. She can cure anything from anybody, but when
to her family, she is a fool. What self-respecting therapist would

then maybe I'm wrong. I understand she is grieving, but I also know
kind of woman she has been made into, and we all know she is much
this. When it came to her family, she was always so strong and so
never lost her control.
Steve and Kayla

Simpson. She is a doctor; she can tell what's wrong with the baby.
