This is a lesson in "you don't know what you've got til' it's gone". Kyle Brandt is hot. But I used to hate him. He was a complete tool on his season of The Real World and when he first started acting on Days Of Our Lives as Phillip Kiriakis, his performances were so bad they were painful. But you know what? In the past year, Kyle has rocked as Phillip. His acting has improved 100% and after I got turned on to his website and his "Hate List", which I love him for, my Kyle Brandt hate has slowly turned to love. And now he's leaving Days Of Our Lives; this is his last week on the show (not sure if it was his idea or the show's). Kyle and his shoulders will be missed.
