Alison Sweeney returned to our show to talk about Spring health & beauty routines, her movie “Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery” airing this Sunday (March 26) at Noon CT on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel, and how it feels to be referred to as “beloved” in her bio (versus mine where I’m referred to as “adequate”).Follow @bigwakeupcall
Diedre Hall has played Dr. Marlena Evans on “Days of Our Lives” for decades. I was once so addicted to “Days” I basically needed an exorcism to get over it.

We discussed the family atmosphere at Hallmark, shooting a Christmas movie the heat of July, and the timeless message of the movie.
