On today’s Daytime Confidential emergency podcast Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Regan dive into the shocking news that CBS has fired Barbara Bloom, General Hospital fired Rebecca Herbst and Shelley Hennig and Jay Kenneth Johnson are leaving Days of our Lives.
The DC gang delves into CBS’ decision to get rid of daytime executive Barbara Bloom. Jamey dishes what he’s hearing about what led to the axe falling and recounts how a CBS representative called him furious for breaking the story. What will her departure mean for The Talk, The Young and Restless and The Bold and The Beautiful?
The other shocking news that Jamey broke on January 18 is that General Hospital had fired 13-year vet Rebecca Herbst. In statement, ABC later announced that the decision was “storyline dictated.” Jamey and Regan react, wondering what kind of storyline would dictate the departure of such a popular character. Why was Elizabeth wasted on Nikolas? Why couldn’t Elizabeth be the one to reveal Siobhan’s connection to the Balkan? What will happen to Elizabeth’s children?
What is happening to Days of our Lives’ young adult cast? Last week it was announced Mark Hapka is leaving Salem and this week it was revealed Shelley Hennig and Jay Kenneth Johnson are also pulling up stakes. The departure of the four actors effectively wipes out Philip/Melanie/Nathan/Stephanie storyline. Should DAYS recast the characters or will the introduction of other characters fill the void?
With all of this week’s crazy developments it’s no wonder the DC gang is worked up!

Will Jason and Sam’s baby be a miracle pregnancy or will it be because of experimental medicine?
