January 15, 2007
There was not a new column this week, so instead, please enjoy a look back at what was happening in Salem during the week of January 10, 2005.
January 22, 2007
How many times has Kate pretended to try to work things out with Sami, just so she can get the goods on her and kick her when she's down?

The 'obsession-with-a-Brady-woman' torch has officially passed down to the next DiMera generation.
February 5, 2007
This past week, Chelsea, the black sheep of the Brady family, stepped up and volunteered to help her brother, who really hates her, escape with Belle and his daughter.

Poor Sami...she just can't seem to help herself from making the same old mistakes over and over again.

How likely is it that no one noticed the new nurse with the eye patch (Steve) removing one of the richest men in Salem from the hospital this past week?
March 12, 2007
Our columnist was not able to provide a new column this week, so instead, please enjoy a look back at what was happening in Salem during the week of March 7, 2005.
March 19, 2007
Lucas knows that Sami is hiding something, and yet he is still willing to push that aside in order to prove that he won't abandon her. How can she NOT tell him the truth?
March 26, 2007
This past week, E.J. managed to shake down, threaten, or make some unholy deal with Sami, Celeste, Nick, Willow, and Philip. He was a busy little butterfly.

Break out the party hats and streamers, because Hope finally found her jewelry in Willow's room! Willow finally got caught red-handed!
April 09, 2007
Would someone PLEASE put a muzzle on Kate, just like they do for vicious dogs? She. Just. Doesn't. Shut. Up.
April 16, 2007
Feisty, fiery Samantha Brady is back, and she's ready for a fight.
April 23, 2007
It takes a special person to convince themselves that the lie they are telling is the truth, but Willow has managed to do just that.
April 30, 2007
There are a lot of really annoying characters in daytime, but Belle Black-Kiriakis has to be near the top of the list.
May 7, 2007
Apparently, E.J. is holding Lexie's whereabouts over Celeste's head, and he's using that to force Celeste to help him in his weird love game.
May 14, 2007
Yes, kiddies, it finally happened! Sami not only made it all the way down the aisle, she actually made it through the wedding!
May 21, 2007
This past week, Chelsea decided that since Nick didn't want to have sex with her right then and there, that he had to have been thinking about his tryst with her mom.
May 28, 2007
Nick apparently believes that lies are bad, unless he is the one telling them and there is a good reason behind it.
June 4, 2007
A plane that shuttles Salem's high-rollers to Las Vegas once a week? How many high rollers can Salem possibly have, and is it enough to sustain an airline company?
June 11, 2007
Stefano is back! For real this time, not just some hand popping out of an oxygen tent with a fake sinister laugh!
June 18, 2007
It seems fishy that the only thing that Stefano wants in exchange for ending his decades-long vendetta against the Bradys is for Sami to marry E.J. and raise their baby as a DiMera.
June 25, 2007
After Nick played Extreme Knockout with Jett last week, he basically told Chelsea that their relationship was over...which lasted all of ten minutes.
July 2, 2007
This past week, Kate was back in full effect, using information given to her in a private conversation to blackmail Nick into doing her bidding.
July 9, 2007
Anybody who has been watching the show for any amount of time has to have wondered why the DiMeras hate the Bradys so much, and now we're finally starting to get to the bottom of it.
July 16, 2007

July 23, 2007
Anna figured out in one lip-lock what has eluded the residents of Salem for the past 20-odd years: Tony is not Tony. He is Andre DiMera, Tony's look-alike evil cousin.
July 30, 2007
Blake Berris is good at playing the smooth geek, but this past week proved that he can do comedy, as well. Nick's antics may have been the highlight of the week.
August 6, 2007
The biggest difference between the way Steve treated Kayla a couple of months ago and the way Jeremy is treating Stephanie now is that Steve was being brainwashed. What is Jeremy's excuse?
August 13, 2007

September 10, 2007
Shawn has decided to become a cop. Honestly, the boy seems to have trouble counting to twenty without taking his shoes off at times, but not everyone gets to be an astronaut when they grow up.
September 17, 2007
This past week was great for Santo and Colleen, but it was pretty boring for E.J. and Sami.
September 24, 2007
Andre has to be one of the smartest characters on a soap opera. Why? Simple -- he actually carries a tape recorder around with him.
October 1, 2007
In Stefano's twisted mind, Sami and E.J. are the reincarnation of Colleen and Santo.
October 8, 2007
Joseph Mascolo and Stephen Nichols are amazing. Their conversations go from hate-filled to hilarious to heart wrenching and back again within seconds.
October 15, 2007
Finally, Lucas got a clue and realized that the way to keep Sami was to provide her with support. This past week, Lucas let Sami know that she doesn't have to end the vendetta on her own.
October 22, 2007
This past week, the news about Drake Hogestyn's departure shocked viewers, but is John Black really gone?
October 29, 2007
Steve feels that Philip isn't entitled to raise Tyler, but Steve should know better than anyone how it feels to try to reconnect with a child that you weren't there to raise.
November 5, 2007
Kate needs to stop hanging out with the DiMera boys. She really needs to pimp herself out one last time and use that money to buy a clue.
November 12, 2007
Belle has no right laying a guilt trip on Philip for ruining a marriage that she never wanted in the first place. Despite great performances, the storyline doesn't make any sense.
November 19, 2007
For someone who lies most of the time, you'd think that Kate would have come up with a better story to explain her missing pistol this past week, but she stuttered and stammered like Rain Man.
November 26, 2007
If Kate really wants her children to stop hating her, she might want to quit turning them over to the police as accessories to attempted murder. Just a thought.
December 3, 2007
If ANYONE deserves revenge, it's Marlena. It would take at least fifty pages to list all of the things that the DiMeras have done to her, and she's never retaliated...until now.
December 10, 2007
Imagine the possibilities if it turns out that Tony, the black sheep of the DiMera family, had actually earned the title because he was the only good seed.
December 17, 2007
Are Belle and Kate related? She seems to be turning a trick from Kate's book; she was handed a gift horse, but instead of trotting up the high road, she had it turned into glue.
December 24, 2007
This past week, Max offered Nick some advice about Chelsea. Just what the heck does Max know about how to have a successful relationship with Chelsea? Most people don't hire a tutor who failed the class.
December 31, 2007
Part one of a two-part look back at the events of the past year in Salem. This week, our columnists talk about the best that Days of our Lives had to offer in 2007.
