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!!!

@Connie what are you beating the Silas/Sam tomtom for on a DOOL post??? Love the passion but post where post be posted!!

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.

Wish she’d gone back to Days. I don’t think KP is the right fit for this character.

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

Karen

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 Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
