Here’s a surprise for long time soap fans and especially those of Days of our Lives.  Alison Sweeney announces on today’s January 21st episode of The Ellen Show that she is departing her role of Sami Brady after21 years with the NBC soap opera.

Sweeney says she will be taping episode throughout the entire calendar year of 2014, since reports say that her contract runs till December.  Just how she will be written-off as Sami is any one’s guess, and Alison’s!  She indicated in this promo clip from today’s Ellen Show, that she would hope Sami would be given a happy ending:

Alison related: “It would be awesome to have some sort of happy ending, but then I also think maybe Sami deserves some sort of twisted, like Breaking Bad ending. I don’t know!”   As to the reason for the busy star’s departure, she told Ellen DeGeneres,”I just have worked so much and my daughter just turned five and my son is nine, and I just want to be with them and enjoy my last year. I’m going to be on ‘DAYS’ all this year.”   Sweeney detailed it was an emotional decision, since she has played Sami since she was 16 years old!

Watch the clip from The Ellen Show with Alison after the jump!  Then, let us know, are you shocked Alison had decided to leave DAYS?  How do you think the show should write-out the character of Sami?  Weigh-in.

I will miss SAMI, Sami is Day’s Erica Kane, without her, IDK-I can only hope Eileen Davidison Kristen comes back and become the true anti/heroine of this show!

excellent Idea….

year 2015…for the start of Kristen…

this would give her a year and a half off…. to be with her son and family.

Think about it Ms. Davidson…. LOVE you

p.s…. totally agree with you… Alison Sweeney is DAYS Erica Kane… like that

Wow I’m in shock, i wish alison nothing but happy ness. she is a wonderful actress. I will miss samantha brady, so much. why not? Recast the role of sami, with a well known soap actress. suggestions rebecca buddig ex green lee amc. natalia livingston ex emily gh, she would be great as sami brady.

would people – fans: recast as Sarah Browne?

I think that would be cool, however Allison’s Sami has this sassy clumsiness in her walk, her talk, her hand and facial expressions about her that I think I’ve never seen Sarah Brown portray-which is what ads vulnerability and strength to this character. But I would rather have Kelli Martin (Life Goes On, ER) play the role of Sami or Sarah Michelle Gellar -I’m wishing on a star here. LOL

For me this was shocking news. Sami has been such a force on the show. Now, we know why they introduced Ejabby which has been compelling (I like it.) for some of us to watch – not saying it will have the long term stamina to replace Ejami, but for now it has the impact to draw many of us in, cause a wedge between Ejami, and transition out of Ejami now that Sami is leaving (unless JS leaves too (hope not), and they go off in the sunset together). I would have thought Ali would stay throughout the 50th… Read more »

Wow! That’s an unwelcome surprise to me. No one can be more annoying than Sami, but that’s what makes us love her so much. Good for you though, Sweeney. Go enjoy your family – you deserve it.

Patrick

you are absolutely right… as annoying as she is… character wise… we can’t not help but love her spirit.

geez! that’s the reason i love what women are about…. (but, miss them, on screen)

they take time off… to be with their significant others…. and children

after 21 years… she deserves a break….

I think this should be a wake up call to “DOOL” to do everything possible to get Eileen Davidson back as soon as possible. Losing your two biggest stars in one year is scary. Someone needs to establish themselves as the new Queen Bee. My vote is Nicole to be front and center. She is Leading Actress material and acted her a$$ off yesterday.

This calls for a celebration!!! I hope they kill Sami and bring back many favorites for the funeral!!!

Maybe Abby will accidently kill her and become a nun while EJ becomes a bitter evil man!!!

DAYS is hot and can only get hotter!!! DAYS mistake was to have a central character and I believe

this is a joint decision between Alison and the show.

Good for her and her family..She will be sorely missed but we got a year to enjoy this very talented actress. Sami is a great character and I am hoping they will not recast but maybe work something out with Allison to stay on a part time basis down the line.

Somewhat surprised but not really. I like Alison & Sami but the character has long needed a break. I do hope there is a Carrie/Sami reunion before she goes. I don’t think “Sami” will permanently stay off canvas– they might talk her in to coming back for short storyline stints. Kind of like what Kimberly M (Robin) is doing at GH now. But as a career, Ali has to know that Days & Daytime roles are not going to keep her employed forever. She made a movie not that long ago with Greg (Eric) and her hosting on BL has… Read more »

Wow. I wish her well. I think that I would like to see the role recast b/c i’d like to see the character continue. Its hard to remember DOOL without Sami Brady. I’m open to it or maybe they should give the character a break forba while. I dunno. Whatevs. Best to Allison though.

Of all the daytime departures, this one hurts the most. Alison is the heart and soul of Days, I don’t know how the show can fill the void. At least we still get a year of Sami. Congrats to Alison for all of her success.

This is quite a surprise; but, I am not disappointed. Many times, I cringe at Alison’s scenes. I find Sami to be very immature. Can’t imagine a man marrying her as many times as they have! I do wish Alison lots of luck with her career and lots of fun and time with her family. Perhaps she will take nu-Will with her? I know, not very nice..

I can live without her in Salem but it won’t be quite the same she has great chemistry with EJ. I don’t understand these actors with great gigs giving them up!

Yeah!

Yeah! No more The Sami Show! Now maybe the show can focus on some other characters with actors that don’t “act” by overacting.

OMG!!! HUGE news!!! I almost cannot believe it. Alison Sweeney and Sami Brady ARE the show for me. Departure of this character — I cannot even begin to think recast right now, although it is possible, as is a return some day — surely provides the catalyst for much to happen in Salem, particularly as the show develops a new front-and-center female character.

Alison Sweeney.

“Thank You” for carrying… DAYS in it’s lean times…. and fans can attest… there were some bleak years.

NO MORE! Ta-Da! if DAYS, currently… has risen above… expectations… and can reel without Eileen Davidson, and Chandler Massey…. and WE ALL are

then… I bid thee farewell.

Abs…couldn’t have happened at a better time… for EJ.

we have a lot of strong charismatic WOMEN helming…..

Kate, Marlena, Kayla, Theresa, Jordan, Maggie, Hope, Nicole, Sheryl, Anne, Caroline… so…

Alison Sweeney… I wish you the best

Abigail will probably end up with E.J. unless he’ll leave too…it’ll be difficult to fill that void when Sami exits…maybe she’ll go to prison after all…i just dont see her in a happy ending unless she leaves town with E.J. The show needs to bring back Patch and Stephanie…maybe Kim and Shane and a few of the Hortons…Abe’s family too…or gradually bring in a new family…change direction of the storyline before A.S.’s departure…just as i was really enjoying the show there are too many cast losses…they either need to bring back more Hortons, Bradys, Dimeras and Carvers or revamp by… Read more »

Who are the Jordans? If you mean Jordan Ridgeway, Jordan is her first name, not her last name, but in the end it matters not because she is using a different name than her real one. Since CR is coming back at some point as Eve Donovan, it is possible “Jordan” will turn out to be her daughter. And if Eve’s return is handled properly that character could play a bigger role in the future. Can you imagine the trouble the half sisters Eve and Theresa could cause if they teamed up to wreck havoc in Salem. But I do… Read more »

@Mary @Jimh did not say the Jordan’s he said Jordan’s as in her extended family.
Read things properly sister Mary San Francisco. As for a new core family Bill Bell did a masterful job rejuvenating his show with the dynamic Abbot family. After years of the Hortons it’s time for new Salem blood and with Allison’s exit it’d be the perfect time to incorporate by weights and measures storyline wise a whole new brood of Salem folks.

I’d love it, if, she spiraled, out of control

No ONE… like Sami… holds, everything… as steadfast as she does…

she’s so loyal to her family…. torn between her characters virtuous… and on the other hand… a true DiMera…

why not have her spin out of control…..

let’s see her nut up and imbibe in chemical reaction…. go breaking bad

I guess people will scream at me for saying this, but if the writers want to keep the character active, they could attempt to do a Re-cast, though I understand completely that Allison is identified strongly with the role since she has played the part for such a long time. With soap actors looking for work, I am sure they could find a replacement, even if only for a short time. Sometimes recasting works, sometimes not, but they could try it if they want more mileage out of the character.

Mary SF
Guest

I am not screaming, and in principle I do believe that technically everyone on a soap is replaceable. However, in sports when one player retires and has a lifetime achievement some have earned the respect to have their “number” retired with them. Likewise,I believed certain actors in soaps deserved the same respect and when the vacate the role, the role should be retired. Mrs Chancellor on Y&R, Edward Quartermaine on GH, Alice Horton on Days, Stephanie Forrestor on B&B—are obvious examples and I think after 21 years in the role, Alison has earn the right to have the role of… Read more »

I sound cynical but she probably had her salary slashed and decided it was time. The budgets are still not what they used to be. The ratings on GH and DOOLs is not that great. They are not bad compared to a a few years ago but still lower. It is what it is. The character really seems immature. Whether it is written that way or it is the way it is directed and portrayed. No growth. I could care less. She does have a large fan base which might hurt the overall show. Time will tell.

While Sami has been a major character over the years, there have been many times I have fast forwarded through her scenes- she can be very tiresome. I will miss her but there are SO many under used actresses on Days-Marlena, Hope, Kayla, Adrienne-and others who can totally carry this show-Maggie, Jennifer/Abby, NICOLE!! And I love Caroline. To sum it up, Sami will be missed but she does not make the show. Get some good storylines going for the ones who remain & Days will continue to ROCK!

Patrick

I agree with you…. so many of the cast can, and do… help carry….

Thanks Allison Sweeney. Year after Year I tuned in to watch your antics and see you evolve as an actress, a woman, and a businesswoman. Much luck to her in the future to which she endeavors. Trust me. She’ll come crashin’ back into Salem somewhere down the line. Looking forward to seeing Charlotte Ross fill that Sweeney void. Now bring Bregman back from Y&R and give us an adult Donna Craig crazy as ever.

I don’t mean to be insensitive or anything but I think that this is the PERFECT TIME for Alison Sweeney to leave DOOL. To me, the character of Sami Brady has clearly run it’s soap course. And, it is getting SO OLD watching Sami (off and on) treating poor EJ like dirt and watching EJ putting up with Sami’s annoying and self-righteous behavior. And, besides, the time has come for EJ to FINALLY have a brand-new love interest. As an on-screen couple, EJ and Sami have become WAY TOO STALE. It’s time for EJ to start anew…without Sami. Now.

I think Lexi should come back from the dead and bring Celeste back. And uncover the other hidden mysteries of the Dimera Mansion, make Marlena possessed by the Devil again. That was when I first started really watching-then OJ trial cut itnto it-but it aired at night which was good, saved a tape recording.

How about if Sami finds out about EJ and his cheatin’ ways, gets angry and drives her car off a Cliff? She survives, after many weeks in the Hospital and requires some cosmetic surgery to assuage her injuries….when she awakens, she is played by
another actress. The character (Sami) also has amnesia and can’t really remember what happened. She doesn’t seem to recognize EJ but has fallen in love with her
Plastic Surgeon who has actually performed a cosmetic surgery on her to make her
resemble his Ex-wife…..Naaaaa……just write out the character.

Alison Sweeney plays such a strong central character as a mother it is hard to believe she would want to give up the show entirely – how about part time- perhaps she can play more of a family/mother role with her character working more with the kids on the show making more of a family. How about giving up her place on biggest loser, days seems to be a better role for her and stretching her actress abilities -unless there is more money in the biggest loser then she would choose to stay there. It will be hard to replace… Read more »

I think its kind of sad that Alison Swenney , is leaving days after 21 years
its hard to believe. I guess when you’ve been on a daytime soap for
so long , you want to do other things.
I wish her all the best while still on days, and in the near future.
I hope that she finds other great roles to play on primetime tv, she is an extroadinary actress.
I hope when she is written out of days , that it is a happy ending.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

Photo: JPI

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Share your thoughts and theories on the return of Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan on DAYS; Did you think she was behind the bomb? Let us know  via the comment section below.
