Lori is enjoying watching Gwen squirm and hopes it drives her back to being a full-time bad girl, was happy to see Shawn and Belle back in action, and thinks that Kristen might need a rest in the latest Days of Our Lives column.

General Hospital

Ever since Sonny “died” and we were introduced to Mike, we’ve been loving watching Maurice Benard tackle this exciting new challenge. And clearly, Benard is having a blast too… as evidenced by this video he posted mocking Sonny’s predicament.
