This is like a donkey punch to my VERY SOUL. Not DOOL. Please not DOOL! ANYTHING BUT MY BELOVED DOOL! I started watching Days of Our Lives during the heady days of Marlena’s possession, and have stuck around through aborted swamp fetuses and microchips in dental crowns and Kristin-pretending-to-be-Susan-pretending-to-be-Kristin and and the yummy space aliens the Gemini Twins in their silver lame hotshots and the serial killer who killed Alice– sweet Alice! –by making her choke on her beloved donuts…
And now you’re telling me that it’s being replaced by FREAKIN’ MEGYN KELLY?
Megyn Kelly’s new gig at NBC was announced just two days ago, and rumors of her wrecking ball-like introduction to the network have already begun. People reports that rumors are a’brewin’ that Kelly, who was offered the chance to host a daytime show in addition to a “Sunday evening news magazine program” and “breaking news coverage,” may nab the “coveted 1–2 p.m. slot” currently held by the long-running soap opera, Days of Our Lives.
A source tells the magazine that the “several cast members have been told that this upcoming year of the series will likely be its last,” as their current contract “only carries them through 2017.”
As I read those words, I am rocking back and forth, willing myself to go to the “safe space” in my head.
What will I tell my 82-year-old mother? We watch it over the phone together every night!
This is simply too much. DAMN YOU, 2017! Already claiming your first victim! (via Jezebel)
