Alison Sweeney Weighs in on 'The Biggest Loser' and Why 'Days of Our Lives' Is Thriving

Alison SweeneyActors on daytime love to play dual roles, but Alison Sweeney probably has no interest in doubling her workload. That's because she's already juggling two jobs. In addition to her role as complicated heroine Sami Brady on 'Days of Our Lives,' she hosts the NBC reality series 'The Biggest Loser,' currently in its ninth season.

Sweeney recently chatted with AOL about having a full work plate, why she works hard at staying fit herself, 'Days'' decision to kill off beloved Uncle Mickey, why the NBC sudser is on the upswing (while others aren't faring nearly as well) and which characters she'd like to see return to Salem.

Merry Christmas on the soaps: Days dumps Dattilo, B&B hires Conroy

bryan_dattilo_lucas_days_of_our_livesHow's this for coal in your stocking? Right before the holiday break, the powers that be at Days of our Lives axed Bryan Dattilo. They told the 16-year veteran that he didn't have to return after the New Year. He and the character of Lucas Roberts are done.

Bryan DatilloBryan Dattilo's had to out-think crafty Sami Brady on 'Days of our Lives' for years; now he's trying to outsmart a bunch of 11-year-olds on 'Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader,' the syndicated game show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy.

"I had never seen the show before but my brother is a big fan of Jeff and his 'jerky' jokes," said Dattilo, who has played Lucas Roberts on 'Days' since 1993. The actor didn't have to go through the rigorous pre-test that regular potential contestants do (believe us, it's not easy), but he caught a few episodes in the green room prior to taping. He talked to AOL about the '5th Grader' experience, plus what's next for Lucas on 'DOOL.'
