Alison Sweeney will appear on the Tuesday December 16th episode of the syndicated talker, The Steve Harvey Show (Check local listings or go to http://www.steveharveytv.com/ for time and channel). During her segments, Alison will discuss her exit from Days of our Lives after nearly 22 years playing Sami Brady, and her hosting chores on Biggest Loser.
When discussing her exit from Salem, while referencing that she has been back to direct on the long-running NBC soap opera, Sweeney admits it’s been hard being away from everyone every day on the set.
Ali related, “It was really hard to leave. Dee (Deidre Hall) has played my mom on the show for 22 years. It’s really hard not to be there every day … I miss them … it’s hard to be away from them.”
Sweeney will also discuss her holiday traditions at home, including her children’s love for “Elf on the Shelf,” as well as tips for keeping your diet on track for the upcoming holiday season. Sweeney will chat with Harvey about her latest novel, “Scared Scriptless,” bringing copies of the book for the entire studio audience. In addition, Harvey and Sweeney will play a Christmas-themed word game, trying to beat the clock with a gift at stake for the studio audience!
