Some more great news could be officially forthcoming from NBC’s Days of our Lives, and it would be involving one of the most beloved stars of One Life to Live, Kassie DePaiva (Blair).

DePaiva had hinted that something was in the work in her recent blog on her website right after the New Year stating, “Good things are ahead this year and I hope to have more to report very soon.” Meanwhile, TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan seemed to all but announce that the “good things” DePaiva was referring to is landing a role on DAYS.   Logan tweeted: “DONE DEAL? I’m hearing it’s OFFICIAL! @KassieDePaiva @nbcdays @DaysofourLives #DOOL #Days #daysofourlives”

This would be an excellent talent acquisition for the longest running scripted series in NBC history, not only because of DePaiva’s talent, but because of the strength of her fan base, who would tune-in to DAYS perhaps for the first time, bringing the series some new eyeballs.

So, what do you think of Kassie in Salem?  What kind of role do you think the powers-that-be have mind for her? Let us know!

I was hoping GH would offer her a job. Franco and Carly, just does not work. I was hoping they would set her up with Franco. Meantime, I do not watch any other soaps, just because someone I love is on them. If I did that, they would get more neilson ratings, and then GH would go off the air. I am still fighting for abc to see the mistake they made by cancelling all my children, and one life to live. If I watch other soaps, that will never happen.

Well, technically, by watching DAYS OF OUR LIVES, an NBC-TV show, the so called genius Execs at ABC SHOULD get a message, and that message is it was a huge mistake taking All My Children off the air. Many fans have crossed over to NBC already, since DOOL is a “true” Soap set in a “true” little soap town, not unlike Pine Valley. ABC has lost it’s Afternoon Line up edge and I’m sure they know it. So, I’m a fairly new viewer to DOOL and it is well acted and holds my interest so I have no reservations about… Read more »

Abc would love to get rid of GH also. If you start watching other soaps, and GH loses in neilson ratings, then abc gets what they want. I use to watch everything on abc, then watch young and restless, bold and beautiful, and days, when they were on soapnet. The only interesting person on days, was always the phenix ( demiero) and Marlena. Never held my interest, not even then. But once abc cancelled the two soaps, and said they would be cancelling GH the next year. I never watch anything on abc, except GH, and had to stop watching… Read more »

Had she gone to GH…i wouldve wanted her to play Nina, Silas’s wife, who suddenly wakes up from her 20 year coma and struggles to adjust to so much lost time. Scenes with her fighting with Ava wouldve been awesome!!!

I want days to stop adding people and use the people they already have to, Enough is enough, days is beginning to feel like the show that takes all the cancelled soaps discards/rejects. I don’t want to see her or Daniel Cosgrove(who is on contract, but should be reoccurring) would love to see more Mark Collier (who is reoccurring but should be on contract) I have enjoyed the additions of Chrishell Stause & Greg Vaughan over the past year Bring back more of the vets and give them air time, instead of adding all these new characters/faces. The way things… Read more »

Well, I guess Daniel is Hope’s new love interest.

It’s been nice to see Julie more, even is she is channeling Jessica Fletcher, whom I love.

Who did Catherine Mary Stewart play?

Yes….sorry….how did I do that, I thought I even checked to make sure I got it right… although I really liked the original Kayla also, I thought she was one of the few people who really worked well with Josh Taylor, Chris Kositchek. I could have shipped them back in the day. LOL

Great news for DAYS fans! Would love if DePaiva was playing a woman who was connected to Marlena somehow– where is the rest of the Evans family anyway?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Marlenas sister named Samantha was murdered by the Salem strangler in the early 1980s…she was her twin sister who the killer mistakenly thought she was Marlena…she was played by her real life twin Andrea Hall!

Yes, I know about Samantha. And wasn’t her cousin also killed? But what about her parents who raised Eric and Sami for a while? There must be some other family, too.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I think her cousin was Trista who was murdered in a different storyline…but not by the Salem Strangler…also, Marlena’s mother was briefly shown in the 1970s when her sister Samantha was causing trouble…other than them i dont recall any other family members…she did have a son from Don Craig years before she married Roman but he died when a few months old…she also had another stepdaughter besides Carrie Brady…Donna Craig, Don’s daughter, who was played by Tracy Bergan-Y&R’s Lauren!

Once in a while, it is mentioned that Marlena’s parents live in Denver Colorado.

Louise

I remember Marlena cousin was Trista, she married Eugene Bradford, but later was murder by the Salem Slasher, so that another part of Marlena family who is gone.
If KdP does come into Marlena picture, I wonder if she might be one of the Orpheus childre..Or a character who took care of that baby Roman & Marlena suppose created during their sizzling romance in 1986 😉 lol

I wonder would she play a new character or someone from the past? I could almost see her as a Samantha Brady recast but that would be waaaaaaaaaay to soon.

21 years of Sami is more than enough. Let’s take a break, regroup, and refocus. Life goes on.

Hi Margie, You may want to tune in as soon as possible to know everything you can, so you’re not lost. She may be part of an existing family. No soap does family drama better DAYS!!! I hope you have fun in Salem!!!

Not really. Alison Sweeney looks older than her age (37) and Kassie DePaiva looks younger than hers (52) so it would be a perfect fit.

Plus, DePaiva is ten times hotter!!!

I previously said they should introduce Jordans family…so maybe Jordans mother unless Eve returns and is her mother like some suggested…or maybe she’ll be Liams estranged wife…or a blast from the past like Trish, Julies daughter in law or Sandy Horton…im fine with whoever she plays!!!

Id like her real life husband James Depaiva to join as Peter Blake, ,Kristens brother…i had other choices but now he’d be good in the part…Peter had drug dealings in the past and could be behind Salems current drug problems!

good lord… so many good ideas! could we see her as a bad girl DiMera! Kristen? I like the idea that she could be Jordan’ Mother…. fighting for her daughter.. with whomever… so Jordan, doesn’t have to be on the lam… with all these identities… or… kin to Marlena…. or Susan…. I just want that DAYS of OUR Lives continues on… as it has…. expertly weaving intricately shared cast story line. LOVE THIS. all I really know her from … is from her short stint on GH… and the nuOLTL on line. and I loved her with Roger Howarth’ Todd.

Fantastic news. Sweet lady that I met in the Nashville airport. I hope she is a character that comes on and makes an immediate impact. I would love to see her come back as Sarah Horton, Maggie’s adopted daughter.

There are too many secrets relvolving Jordan’s character and it is time for some of them to be revealed. I hope she is running from a dangerous ex-husband. I love Jen Lilly, but the character of Theresa does not seem to have any redeeming qualities except when she has a scene with Caroline.

Mary SF

I agree it is time to let us know who Jordan really is– but I doubt she be running from an ex— with all those identities it seems more like she is in a witness protection program or the child of con artist or spy parents. Also they did the dangerous husband thing a couple years ago with Madison, the lady Brady was engaged to, but died. As for Theresa, all the bad girls start off the same way, with no redeeming qualities, but if they become popular they usually start making more human, more misunderstood rather than just bad—… Read more »

I actually suggested Jordan should be running from an abusive husband…a Sleeping With The Enemy type storyline…several posts ago…it could be Liam or Aiden, the two new men in Salem. Good others think the same!!!

well, good for her! but, guess that means OLTL 2.0 is gone for good! I hate that PP did that to the cast/crew and us. First it’s online (before it ended on tv), then wait no, not online. Then yes online, but short “seasons” and trouble with unions, might move to another state/studio, no wait, we’re staying. Writers let go. Short season #1, hiatus before #2… no wait, let’s sue ABC for our failures, and then **Poof** — gone! so good for Kassie, move on girl! She’s a hot commodity and she shouldn’t put up with that nonsense and wait… Read more »

No, OLTL is not gone forever. Do we even know how long Kassie’s contract is?
OLTL could reboot and T&B are off on their honeymoon and a year abroad.
Go, PP. I’ll always support them for trying so hard.

Count me in as delighted! Now THIS is A-list casting I was talking about in a post weeks ago. Daniel Cosgrow, Mike Collier etc, no disrespect WHATSOEVER, but DAYS needed to cast a HEAVYWEIGHT in the soap world. Of all the soaps, DAYS is probably the only one that doesn’t pick off big names, or at least does it the more infrequently. YR (especially under MAB) does it the most (Debbie Morgan, Genie Francis, Tristan Rogers, Steve Burton to name a few) but BB and GH do it a lot too (Crystal Chappel, Scott Clifton, Heather Tom, Maura West, Emme… Read more »

@ MO and 4EvaDays: Catherine Mary Stewart was the first Kayla in 1982 and 1983. Mary Beth Evans took over in 1985.

I’d like to see Kassie play Sarah Horton. I’ve always thought there was more story there to tell.

Jack Evans

My guess would be possibly she would be the new Kristen since the previous actress has vacated the role. Seems that she would be in that age-bracket for the role and I could see her as the new Sammi but she’s a tad mature for the part and I don’t mean that unkindly it’s just a fact.
I’m just curious – would most Fans prefer to see her appear as a Brand New Character in Salem?

I thought of her in some recast roles or a new one as Jordans mother!!! I also think why not as a recast Jessica, Nicks mother!!!

Johnny

You always have good ideas Jim! The good thing about DAYS is that there so many ways to weave new characters in while rooting them solidly. There are so many Hortons we havent seen or heard from in years, and there is no reason why Jordan couldnt be related to half the town. There are decades of time gaps and rich history waiing to be mined. Whoever the bring Kassie on as, I hope they dont make he “MADISON MISTAKE” and bring her on as a nobody or as some random bitch. Whoever she plays, though…is anyone else salivating of… Read more »

That would be frickin awesome!!!! I think she should play Sandy Horton. I just watched some vintage clips of DAYS…there was this character Sandy Horton…DePaiva could easily play her. they both had dirty blonde hair. That would root her into the history of the show. Best I knew…this Sandy character was pretty much a non-entity…she could be besties with Hope and Jennifer…she could have relationships with ANYONE…Roman, Daniel, etc…..Pamela Roylance was the name of the actress….if any of you want to google her. DePaiva would rock in that role.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I suggested Sandy too…or Julies ex daughter-in-law Trish originally played by Patty Weaver…Trish was a singer on the show from the mid 70s to early 80s and since Kassie is a singer and sung on OLTL she could perform on Days too!!!

I was just reading some tidbits about Days and discovered a cast list from the early years to today….maybe they could introduce DePaiva as Donna Craig and they could bring back Don Craig (Jed Allan), Marlena’s first love, before the Bradys hit town…..or possibly as Melissa Horton, she could interact with Maggie and the other Hortons, plus she’s been living in Nashville and she could come on the show and sing country…..she has a great voice…..just some thoughts!!!!!

Big fan of Kassie’s and will be happy to see her on Days. It would be fun if she could come on as Rebecca, Daniel’s deceased (ahhh, maybe not?) wife. God knows she would be a better match to him than Jennifer and the man-hungry Theresa.
