You can fire her. But you can't stop her. Soap superstar Eileen Davidson, who returns to Days of Our Lives on Thursday, Oct. 11 as nutty hell-raiser Kristen Blake, hasn't been on the NBC serial in 14 years. And she wouldn't be on it now if she hadn't been unceremoniously dumped from her long-running role as heroine Ashley Abbott on CBS's The Young and the Restless.

They barely look a day over 11,000! The cast and crew of NBC's Days of Our Lives gathered on Friday, Sept. 28 to celebrate a remarkable TV milestone — the filming of the soap's 12,000th episode. Days icons Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John), seen here, were among those on hand, along with executive producer Ken Corday whose late dad, Ted Corday, was a cocreator of the show. Episode 12,000 will air on Jan. 11, 2013. In the meantime, check out TV Guide Magazine's exclusive photo gallery from the big day here!

This isn't the first time Days of Our Lives buddies Will and Sonny have technically locked lips. Their first kiss, which aired last month on the NBC soap, was such a hot awkward mess it sent Will straight to bed with (gasp!) a girl. But TV Guide Magazine now has the first look at the real deal. And it's going to change Days history.
John Ingle, who played Edward Quartermaine on General Hospital for nearly two decades, died Sunday, according to a post on Facebook. He was 84.
Will it be the revenge of the hooker? Fan fave and raving beauty Nadia Bjorlin is heading back to NBC's Days of Our Lives as Chloe Lane just a year after being let go as part of a major cast purge. The actress will report for work in late September but is not expected to hit the air until...wait for it...January 4, 2013. Yep, Days is shooting that far ahead these days. But Bjorlin is worth the wait, baby! TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive chat with the star about her rocky road at Days, Chloe's shady past as the town prostie and how the character plans to reclaim her dignity.

Apparently, we had nothing to worry about. There was a collective sigh of relief in the daytime TV community last month when it was announced that the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards would air Saturday, June 23 on cable channel HLN (8/7c). Up until then, it was widely believed the awards — which no network wanted — would go untelevised or end up on the Internet. But Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, tells TV Guide Magazine that he "always had two backup plans in place — including one with Reelz — if the HLN [deal] didn't happen. We would never have let these awards leave television."
