Breaking News: Beloved gay couple Will and Sonny to be written off of daytime soap “Days of Our Lives”
One of the only reasons I put up with Days of Our Lives outlandish storylines is because I love the characters of Will Horton (played by three-time Emmy winner Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (played by Emmy winner Freddie Smith).
Now comes word via Smith that the actors and their gay characters are leaving the show with their final episodes to air in September (the show is taped many months in advance).
I am disgusted.
These are wonderful actors and beloved characters who are part of core families. And, they are one of daytime TV’s very few examples of a gay married couple.
Once they are off the show, I will never watch it again.

I will miss Salem so much!! Thank you all for the incredible love and support throughout the years. I really feel we told a love story that will live on forever.
