“Days of Our Lives” history: March 24
On this day, March 24th, in “Days of Our Lives” history, Shawn and Belle left Salem with daughter Claire to sails around the world on the Fancy Face 4.
The year was 2008, and “Shelle” fans were devastated to learn that Shawn and Belle were leaving the show. That was six years ago, and Hope still sometimes speaks about Shawn D.
Fans of the “Days” super couple are still anticipating a comeback for them, but it would be interesting to see who would play the characters.
Watch Shawn and Belle say goodbye in the clip below.

On this day in “Days” history Sami Brady, played by Alison Sweeney, became a man…Stan!
It all started when Alison needed to leave the show for maternity reasons and the writers decided to go in an interesting way, by disguising her character Sami as a man, Stan, played by a male actor.
Sami hid behind “Stan” to get revenge on her enemies, but ended up regretting the decision when her son, Will, was mortified when it all came out, and “Stan” costumes began selling in Salem stores.

While Arianne Zucker is now a “Days of Our Lives” staple, the same couldn’t be said of the fresh faced newcomer in 1998.
Ari debuted as Nicole Walker and had her first scenes playing a pretty young waitress with Eric Brady, then played by Jenson Ackles.
Nicole was a mystery to Eric, but caught his eye right away and the two would go on to have an on again, off again love story that is still playing out today, 16 years later.
“Days” has been good to Arianne Zucker. Not only do the fans love Nicole Walker, but she also met her husband, Kyle Lowder, (ex-Brady Black) on the NBC soap.
Congrats on another anniversary, Ari. We’re so glad you’ve stuck around.

While the days of the ‘DOOL’ cool kids, Belle, Shawn, Mimi, Rex, Phillip, and Chloe are long gone, we remember them fondly thanks to YouTube!
On this day in “Days” history in 2004, not only was Belle mistaken that Shawn was going to propose to her, Phillip was pining away for Belle, and Rex was asking for permission to marry Mimi.
However, Mimi had another surprise coming, her big brother, Patrick Lockhart, played by the hunky Brody Hutzler (Can we bring him back?!) came to town.
Patrick would later go on to deliever Jack Jr. (J.J. who is named Jack Patrick after him,) and romance Billie and Hope.
Enjoy the clip from 2004 below.
