She's Outta There! Alison Sweeney Says Goodbye to Days of Our Lives

Alison Sweeney

Grab a hanky, or 12. Soap superstar Alison Sweeney checks out of NBC's Days of Our Lives next week, nearly 22 years after she joined the show as stormy conniver Sami Brady. Sami leaves Salem a widow, thanks to the recent presumed death of her hubby EJ. But there's good news: After a series of deeply emotional farewells with friends and family, she will head to L.A. where studio execs — who have read that horrid Sami expose written by her son — are eager to put her story on screen. Of course, TV Guide Magazine had to get Sweeney's take on all this!

Days of Our Lives' Alison Sweeney is Scared Scriptless

Alison Sweeney

When she wasn't busy raising hell as Sami on Days of Our Lives, hosting The Biggest Loser and being a wife and mom, Alison Sweeney somehow managed to knock out her fourth book — the frisky, funny beach read, Scared Scriptless (arriving June 3 from Hyperion). TV Guide Magazine spoke with Sweeney about her latest literary venture, her upcoming exit from Salem (she swears she's coming back) and why she has never — not even once! — been nominated for an Emmy.

The Biggest Loser's David: Today I Am a Triathlete!

David Brown

I had heard it said, "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you."  Fourteen weeks on The Biggest Loser ranch and I have been challenged in a million ways, big and small.  I've gone as far as a person can go on the show.  I've risen to the demands of each day, each workout, each setback, each growing challenge and I have succeeded.  I have learned about true success, being nothing more and nothing less than a few simple disciplines practiced daily.  And CHALLENGES are the gateway to the next level of growth, a launching pad for our potential, and a decision to define our own destiny.

"Full effort is full victory." Mahatma Gandhi

Being a super-fan of The Biggest Loser for years, I knew what an accomplishment it was to make it to "Singles."  At the Week 10 challenge, Alison unveiled an assortment of colored jerseys, marking the end of team efforts, and introducing us to our new identities and start of individual efforts.  It was time to take everything we had learned over the first few months on the ranch and apply it solely for our own benefit.  Going forward, I had only my effort to count on.... and I really liked that new kind of positive pressure.

Biggest Loser's David: Perseverance Was My Word of the Week

David Brown

The holidays are a special time of year filled with joy, singing, celebrating faith, and sharing time with loved ones... but it can also be a very hard time of the year emotionally for many.  On average, people will gain somewhere in the neighborhood of seven pounds during the season from Thanksgiving through the New Year.  I was one of those people on the high side of that average, and although I have no scientific study to back me up, I think it probably had a lot to do with me being emotionally obese.
