When the official news broke this morning that One Life to Live favorite Kassie DePaiva is the new Eve Donovan of Days of our Lives, some fans have been upset that Charlotte Ross, who has been approached by the NBC soap opera to return to the role she was so remembered by, did not get the part.

However, Charlotte took to Twitter a few hours ago to reveal why the deal between her and DAYS fell through.   The actress tweeted:  “I had to pass on reprising my FAVE role, Eve Donovan, as I’m currently filming 3 projects (NASHVILLE-abc now) & I know Kassie will be wonderful!”

Speaking of Nashville, according to TV Line, we can look for the talented Ross, who also sings, to appear in a March episode of the Music City drama based series.  Ross will play a sober alcoholic who formerly worked as a back up singer on Rayna’s (Connie Britton) tours. She shares a unique spark with Deacon (Charles Esten) as they are both survivors of a troubled past.  Could this be yet another new woman in Deacon’s life?

So, according to Charlotte she had three projects in the works that precluded from returning to DAYS, thus Kassie DePaiva will take over the role! So what do you think about Charlotte’s tweet? And her new guest star role on Nashville?  Let us know!

Thanks for posting this Michael. I am pretty heartbroken about Charlotte not getting to reprise this character. She is a genuinely beautiful actress, and has a quality of vulnerability and strength of character reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe. It hurts because Eve she regards as the role of her career and she always wanted to come back to Days, which is like a home for her. I accepted Robert Kelker Kelly as Bo Brady, so I’m sure I’ll come to accept Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan. But in our heart of hearts, we know that Peter Reckell and Charlotte Ross are the definitive performers of those characters. The stars were perfectly aligned for Charlotte’s return as Eve but for some tragic reason, it just didn’t happen. I will accept Kassie DePaiva, a commendable soap opera veteran but in my heart, Eve will always be that girl-woman played with such exquisite sensitivity and humanity by the phenomenal Charlotte Ross. For me, she is iconic.

Understandable. I like that Kassie is joining the show, and though I’ve never seen Charlotte in the roll, I know she had a huge following as Eve as was a really loved character. So I did worry when I read Kassie was joining as Eve. But now that it’s been explained by Charlotte herself, the show wanted her back first before looking elsewhere, I am fully back to being excited about Kassie joining the show!

Hope she has a great time! Everyone always fits right into the show….they have the most fun cast of all the shows. I have no doubt Kassie will too.

Silas and Sam’s love story is like a great romance novel that gets juicer and juicer as you read on. Silas and Sam’s chemistry is smoldering HOT. Michael Easton is an amazing actor and brings life to every character he portrays. My favorite scene and I hope it gets submitted is when Silas tells Sam about having a wife. And of course their love scene New Year’s Eve it was so passionate! Silas and Sam are my favorite GH couple and I hope they can make it through this sticky situation that they are in. I pray that still end up together. Please DO NOT bring back Jason or Nina! Let Silas and Sam move on TOGETHER!!!

DAYS is pulling a GL. When KZ, Phillip, and Beth left GL in 90/91, they brought on new characters and with Sami leaving Days, I think they’ll bring people like Eve, Aiden, and Liam to the show to fill the void.

Looking forward to seeing Charlotte on Nashville, but I would have rather seen her back on Days.

Not at all looking forward to OLTL taking over yet another show.

Charlotte is even more beautiful than she was 30 years ago! What a lovely lady! I wish her the best with her new endeavors, and I am so glad she is doing well.

I’m also looking forward to seeing another talented lovely, Mrs. Depaiva, on DAYS. I wish we could have more Kim and Shane and maybe even a Gabrielle Pascal return!

Just finished this weeks episode of Nashville . I couldn’t believe it when Charlotte Ross was there in front of me . Bette Midler singing Wind Beneath My Wings made me think of Charlotte as she sang it on Days way back when . Once I heard her sing on the show I was like ” what the heck is she doing on a soap ? She had such a beautiful voice , I can’t wait to hear it / her again . Awesome !!!!!

I am still bummed! No disrespect to Kassie, who is a fine actress as well, but Eve in my mind. will always be Charlotte Ross, no one could match her back in the day. Ah well.

Well, so far, this recast is not working for me. Hopefully, Kassie D.’s contract is just short term and can be cut loose to clear the way when Charlotte Ross’s schedule opens up. No offense to Kassie; it would be hard for anyone to take over this character.

Angela

No Offense to Kassie but Charlotte should of got the role as Eve since really it is her role. I hope Days producers will reconsider. PLEASE BRING CHARLOTTE ROSS BACK. Thank you

I agree!! Charlotte Ross Needs to come back as Eve. Her and Patsy Pease worked so well together . She would be a fantastic step sister to Teresa’s character. Hope to see Patsy and Charles back on .. Loved those characters;)))

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
