So this was posted on the official twitter for the show a couple weeks about, but here is the first promo for QueenSugar. The show will premiere September 6th and 7th at 10pm, it will be a new night premiere.
This week on NBC’s Days of our Lives Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) meets up with an old flame when Serena Mason descends upon Salem. One Life to Live favorite Melissa Archer (Serena) has been brought in to play the world traveled journalist to spark up Eric’s messed up love life after his relationship with long time love, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) went south.
On-Air On-Soaps caught up with one of our favorite gents, Greg Vaughan to ask him what it has been like crafting and playing this new love story in front of the camera with a relationship that has never been heard of before by the viewing audience. Plus, Greg weigh-in on if he thinks there is still hope for a reconciliation for Eric and Nicole and he shares his thoughts on the embattled and always controversial Daytime Emmy process, and if he might be even be a contender when the Pre-Nominations are announced in 2015, and much more.
Melissa Archer just debuted as your new love-interest Serena Mason. Was it hard for you to create this never before spoken of relationship?
GREG: It was not hard. It was just to establish a quick relationship and back-story with someone who was Eric’s former love interest from years off the canvas, and that they kind of coexisted in a place that was third world and had a lot of turmoil in it, was a bit challenging. So Eric and Serena bonded back then and they created something. Was it quick and easy? Was it long and lasting? Is it kind of like oil and vinegar? These were questions to be answered.
Did Eric’s relationship with Serena ultimately lead him to turn to become a man of the cloth?
GREG: No. They, being in the same field of expertise with journalism and news, they were always fighting one another for the feature story …
… That means sex on the soaps!
GREG: Well, that came later. (Laughs) It was like passionate, and so when they had it, they had it. But once that Eric made the choice to go towards the missionary and the priesthood, I think that was a fine line he was walking.
Were you sad that the writers decided to pull apart Eric and Nicole’s (Arianne Zucker) love story?
GREG: Of course, I was sad. I don’t think the story is quite finished yet. I think it’s an unfinished story that will cross paths once again. You know, when you go through a hurdle, or have a big hill to climb to overcome, or what these characters went through which was a big mess … it’s going to take a lot to bring them back together. After some time, some separation, and some piece of mind, maybe we’ll come back together and maybe rekindle a flame. I don’t think the flame is going to die.
Days of our Lives star Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady) was in Toronto this past weekend to meet with fans along with his co-stars at a fan event for Stars Canada Events, where a portion of the proceeds benefited Three to Be.
Greg took some time to discuss his role on DAYS (he joined the cast in November 2012), his past as Lucky Spencer on General Hospital and this week’s DAYS storyline which sees him confront his fiancée Nicole (Arianne Zucker) for withholding the proof that linked Dr. Chyka (Michael Benyaer) to Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson), the woman who drugged and seduced him.
Eric found out from Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) that Nicole destroyed the evidence that linked Dr. Chyka to Kristen. He confronts her this week. That’s going to be quite the showdown, isn’t it?
Things are coming out! [Nicole withheld] the evidence that could have given Eric the option to return to the priesthood, something very near and dear to Eric’s heart or follow his heart [and be with Nicole]. Without the evidence, he had been completely committed to moving forward with is life and followed his heart. He was free to be in love with the women he has always loved. It was a leap of faith, but at the same time, it’s also been a roller coaster ride.
Nicole will make one final plea before he walks out on her for good. What do you think it will take Eric to forgive Nicole? Has the trust between these two been completely lost?
It’s been heavily damaged. It’s betrayal.
For me, I look at it being contradictory since Eric has betrayed Nicole [when he accused her of the rape]. He was pointing the finger at her and had quite a harsh reaction towards her [while she mainted her innocence].
Back in April, we posted about Garcelle Beauvais’s attachment to star in Ghanaian American filmmaker Leila Djansi’s follow-up to last year’s Ties That Bind, which starred Kimberly Elise.
Here is your first look at Djansi’s new drama titled And Then There Was You, which stars Ms. Beauvais as Natalie Gilbert, a woman adjusting to a new life after after her husband leaves. When Natalie falls for a new man, she begins to discover secrets of his that may signal trouble ahead for their blossoming relationship.

Djansi’s last feature, Ties That Bind, saw Kimberly Elise star alongside Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade and Ghanaian actress Ama K Abebrese. It told the story of 3 women from different walks of life, bound together by a similar pain: the loss of a child.
That film is now available on several home video platforms.
