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.

Charlotte Ross is 46 and Kassie Depaiva is 52 – Whoa, such a great age difference! REALLY?!!!! Lassie is a good actress and is great at playing a vixen! I will be watching!!!

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.

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;)))

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
