“Days of our Lives” 12/11/2015 ….. The “What-the-What” Edition

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: December 14, 2015

Okay, what is Ava up to? Pretending to cough, making herself look sickly…. I have a feeling the ride for Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla is not going to be an easy one. And little Joey (James Lastovic), honey you have no idea who you’re dealing with. Tsk, tsk, tsk…..

“Days of our Lives” 12/10/2015 ….. The Mrs. Robinson Edition

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: December 10, 2015

I’m going to add a bit of humour when I make these posts. I’ve been doing the same over at my site for Stephen Nichols in adding a funny or ironic end to the post title. This time it’s The Mrs. Robinson Edition because all during Ava’s scenes today with Joey (James Lastovic) all I could hear playing in my head was Simon & Garfunkle’s “Mrs. Robinson” from the Dustin Hoffman film The Graduate. And what was that hand on the lap move there Ava? Joey’s sixteen and Ava is old enough to know better, but I have a feeling she’s leading him on. Right now I don’t even have a clue as to what Ava’s angle could possibly be, but whatever it is Tamara’s working it. Second day back and she’s killing her scenes. You can’t tell if she’s a baddie or a good girl. All in the craft.

“Days of our Lives” 12/09/2015 ….. Welcome Back Ava Vitali

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: December 09, 2015

Well, she’s back. I pretty much knew this was all we’d get to see of Tamara today, but it was sufficient to make me smile. I love that she’s back and I know Tamara will be on for a limited run, but we’ll make the most of it and hope they don’t kill her off so we can expect Ava back in Salem again. And didn’t she look amazing? I’ve always loved the wardrobe this show chose for Tamara as Ava. So much a part of the character and Tamara works it to the hilt. I also loved the femme fatale glasses. I’ll be doing what I’ve been doing on my Stephen Nichols site in putting in a featured image.

“Days of our Lives” 50th Anniversary & Ava Vitali First Look

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: November 16, 2015

Finally something of Tamara from her return to DAYS OF OUR LIVES. I have a video of the show’s 50th anniversary, plus the first look of Ava in a scene with a grown up Joey Johnson played by cutie pie James Lastovic. The last time we saw him, if you’ll remember, was on Ava’s cellphone when she went to the neo-natal intensive care ward to get the photo for Kayla (Mary Beth Evans). This time we see a sixteen year old young man. Why am I thinking Ava will be a bit of a Mrs. Johnson to Joey’s Graduate? Video and screencaps to follow.

Tamara :: New Event Images – 09/28/2015

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: October 01, 2015

Some more new event images for our girl. Tamara attended the Premiere Party For Fuse’s Transcendent. I’m noticing the closer we’re getting to her DAYS OF OUR LIVES airdate, she’s getting out more. Can’t say I’m saddened by that. I love seeing Tamara out and about. In these images she’s looking just smouldering in black, and I love how long her hair is. Yes, I’m that shallow. Not afraid to admit that.

I have five new images from an event Tamara attended in early August. Sorry I didn’t have these up then, but I couldn’t get them till now. Enjoy. By the way, I’m screencapping Stephen’s DOOL episodes, so if you’re a fan, please feel free to go over to STEPHEN NICHOLS ONLINE and take a lookie. Here’s hoping Steve and Ava have some scenes together when Tamara makes her debut.

Some Good News

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: August 10, 2015

Some things have been going on behind the scenes you might not be aware of, but I’ve been mulling something over in this brainium of mine and I decided something that I think you’ll all be very happy about. This decision has to do with something you guys have been writing to me about for a while. That thing is, I’ve decided to reactivate the two media sites I had on Tamara. So what does this mean, exactly? It means that for right now I decided to get the soap opera site back up and running first. It’s taken the better part of the week to get all the bugs worked out and tonight I finally got those exterminated and the site is now back up. Right now there are no new videos added. What is up there now are some episodes of Tamara from ALL MY CHILDREN as Reese Williams, and the majority are of her as Taylor Raines Walker from her second go around on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. My main impetus currently is to get all her work as Ava Vitali up considering her upcoming return in December…oh why does that have to be so damn far away? I hope you will be happy of this decision as I know I’ve had a lot of emails regarding this. So enjoy. Just click on the banner below to go there. If you want to know the whole story surrounding the reasons why the media site went down, please feel free to go to this link ABOUT OBSCURE MEDIA to read.

Tamara To Return To “Days” As Ava Vitali

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: July 06, 2015

Good news. Tamara is returning to television, this time back to DAYS OF OUR LIVES as her Emmy Award Winning counterpart Ava Vitali. According to various sources, Tamara has already begun filming her scenes June 17. Her first airdate will be on the December 9, 2015 episode. I know, why so far away? It’s due to the soap’s advanced filming schedule. So we have to wait all that time to see her back as the hopefully back from insanity Ava, though she was the last time we saw her when she left the DiMera mansion. So are we thrilled? I know I am. Here’s hoping this spells the beginning of Tamara’s return to us. We’ve missed you Tamara.

TVLine Items: Days’ Ava Returns

One of Salem’s most unpredictable residents is popping back in for a visit.

Tamara Braun, who portrayed Mafia princess Ava Vitali on Days of Our Lives in 2008, will return for the soap’s upcoming 50th anniversary.

Tamara Braun Returning to ‘Days of our Lives’ in December as Ava Vitali

Posted by Kevin Mulcahy Jr.

Emmy Award-winning actress Tamara Braun is returning to NBC soap opera Days of our Lives in December as Ava Vitali, according to TV Insider, who describes the character as “a pill-popping mob spawn who split town rather than face trial for sabotaging an airplane, an act that led to the death of Grandpa Shawn and two others.”

Braun began shooting June 17 and show up on screen December 9.

She joins the growing list of returning Days actors including Peter Reckell (Bo), Stephen Nichols (Steve), Martha Madison (Belle), Jason Cook (Shawn-Douglas) and Alison Sweeney (Sami).

Braun also briefly appeared on Days in 2011 as Nicole’s sister, Taylor Walker. Her other daytime roles include hellcat Carly Benson on General Hospital and Reese Williams on All My Children.

A Personal Thank You to Tamara and To Dawn

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: May 19, 2015

First of all I need to say this. My 91 year-old mother died on Saturday morning, the 16th of May at 1:50 am. I was called by the doctor at the hospital where I’d taken her the previous Monday, and told to get there as soon as I could. I tried to collect myself and headed to the nearby bank to get the money out for cab fare as I don’t have a car. While there two police officers who were in the variety store in the plaza asked me if they could assist me. I was already balling my eyes out because I had a feeling of what was happening. This was about quarter after one that morning. I told them I’d been called and the dire necessity of my getting to the hospital. The man and woman officers promptly put me in the cruiser and drove me to the hospital, running red lights to get me there. I don’t know who they are, but I thank them from the bottom of my heart. Had it not been for them I wouldn’t have been there for my mom when she passed about thirty minutes later. I stayed with her and took the walk down with her before heading home around six am Saturday morning.

I debated whether to say anything on any of my social media accounts, or anywhere else for that matter. But I finally decided I would make a Twitter post about my loss. Sort of mark it in a way. Have at least a mention of it in my timeline as a memory of it. So I had some of my followers offer their condolences including one who I happened to meet, I think, on a message board for DAYS OF OUR LIVES when Tamara was on as Taylor Walker. Her name is Dawn Elicia. She was so sweet in offering her condolences, but she did something that I will never forget, she tweeted Tamara telling her about my mom and Tamara had this to say:

I want to thank Tamara so much for taking the time to say this. You have no idea how much this meant to me. The next two weeks are going to be difficult with the funeral later this week and the settling of her matters next, but I know for a fact that this will carry me as I navigate the difficult emotional waters these next few days. Tamara you are the best. Dawn, no words.
