Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Great news daytime fans! Kassie DePaiva is back at work at Days of our Lives reprising her role as Eve Donovan.

The beloved actress who returned to film new episodes of the NBC sudser back in July of 2016 had to cut that return short when she was untimely diagnoted with acute myeloid leukemia.

After going through treatment, she is remission and announced it via social media back in February.  Now comes word via Soap Opera Digest that Kassie has been back on set taping new episodes as Eve.

Look for DePaiva’s on-screen return to occur on October 30th.  With DePaiva back in Salem and new head writer Ron Carlivati on board at DAYS, it puts Kassie in a great position to be utilized with a writer who knows her work having written for her for years as Blair Cramer on One Life to Live.

Excited to see Kassie back as Eve? Comment below!

YES, YES!! Beautiful words indeed Patrick!!

He will SO give her juicy material!!

So glad she is on remission and back at work..Hope is a long term gig..She was a great Eve, until that silly storyline of her sleeping with her daughter’s boyfriend..They really should bring back the character of Paige and the actress that played her, just like they did Will..She was really good!!

Yes Omar > I always thought that Blair would become the matriarch in Llandview when Viki retired in the coming decade. She is Soap Royalty and deserves a great gig. I’m going back to DOOL!

Hi Omar… I did not see the connection… that Ron Carlivati wrote for OLTL and for Blair Cramer

this only just sweetens the pot

because… ( I loved the JJ / Eve story)

I have been patiently waiting… candle light and spirited energy

having Eve BACK… on thee show… is definitely LEAD’ing the Pack… and I couldn’t be more delighted

this is top draw

I don’t know how to answer … Kassie DePaiva without an actor to portray her acting chops with a child

I loved the chemistry with Paige.. any one

watching Kassie DePaiva unleash all her repertoire

I’ve always liked Kassie DePaiva. She’s very talented and if utilized, there are endless possibilities. But, please no Billy Warlock (Frankie). Ugh, he is such a wimp. A wimp with an ego.

Wonderful news! I suspect she may stick around for awhile with the new writing team. Please make Eve a core character and front burner. Not sure it will happen but DAYS needs to focus on core legacy characters, jettison what is not working, and give us strong stories in equal measure of romance and positivity with tragedy and heartbreak. I can do without the eye-rolling twists and turns of plot tho we will have something to explain the return of Will.

God bless this fiercely courageous woman. So happy to see her well, again.
And, I could not have had better news concerning Days. Welcome back Kassie/Eve.
Let’s give Eve the story she deserves. Why not resurrect Paige?

i was going to say the same about Paige but maybe her identical twin Sage…would also like to see Rory and Bev return as well…

Celia

Of course you were, Jimmy. We think alike more oft than not! LOL.
I think Eve’s life would have more substance and any storyline more credence if Paige were alive.

Yes Claudio, Kassie is a wonderful actress. Eve needs to hook up with Justin. Also they need to bring back Jack.

I liked Eve dating Justin. I think Justin showed Eve that there are still good men out there that admire and respect women.

This is excellent news!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot wait to see Kassie back in action as Eve. And with Ron Carlivati as head writer, we’re in for a great ride.

Great post 717!

Mr. C is a gifted story teller who did wonders in the last years of OLTL. Still cant believe ABC cancelled the best soap in the past decade!

Totally agree with you on both counts Patricio. Ron kept us on the edge of our seats. You couldn’t miss a day. I will never get over the absolutely bone headed move by the alphabet network. Every day my heart aches for our beloved One Life to Live and all those marvelous characters and stories.

Remember how great that whole last year was? It was must watch TV! No soaps are like that now. There is no depth. Ron would use humor and lighthearted mini stories. David Vickers, Roxy, Destiny! Not the usual soap fare but complex, multilayered characters.

This news is very exciting…I look forward to seeing Kassie working again, she’s an amazing actress! Now with Ron Carlivati on board, hopefully Kassie will have a wonderful continuing storyline! Welcome back Kassie, I’m so happy you’re doing well! Lots of love & happiness to you

It’s fine that she is back, though Eve is (or was) a very one dimensional character – however, right now, the show is just AWFUL with atrocious writing and some teen actors who really need to find another town to taunt. Maybe, I’ve just seen too many soaps through the years and most of them, of course, have improbable storylines but even at that Days of Our Lives comes up with things that are beyond absurd.

dmr
Guest

The show is just dreadful with this onslaught of teen actors. They need to just disappear, no explanation needed. Each one of them is a haunt. No talent whatsoever. I feel as thought I am watching an elementary school play in the lunch cafeteria. They can barely say their lines and make eye contact. It IS atrocious-the casting, the writing, EVERYTHING. Time to clean house.

She is a very good actress but I think Days wrote Eve into a corner that she can not easily back out of. I hoped Y&R would have been smart enough to pick her up and pair her with Peter Bergman.

Welcome back, Kassie!

A triangle consisting of Eve, Justin and Adrienne would be fun to watch!

I agree. After the murder of Paige, I was hoping TPTB would explore the budding relationship between Eve and Justin. Don’t know if that’s possible now. I’d heard that Wally Kurth went back to GH.

LOL, 4ever…..better yet, Eve and Lucas!!!! Imagine what that alliance would fo to our Miss Jenny’s blood pressure.

This is great news. I would love to see her in a triangle with Eric and Jennifer. It would also be fun to throw Frankie in the mix. If not, I think she had great chemistry with Wally Kurth.

Kassie is a dynamic actress. I hope her storyline has depth and she is not one-dimensional the way her storyline was in the past. It took Paige’s death before she had any rooting value. Welcome back to daytime!

Amazing news! So glad she’s healthy again and back at Days!

Since Ron C. started as head writer amazing things have happened with Eve, Will and Sami coming back!

I hope she improves the show!

Why are they playing the island story like everyone is on a different island? Can they not write for more than 2 or 3 people in a scene? It doesn’t make sense. Everyone would (should) be working together to survive, be rescued instead of each acting like they’re on a holiday. Poor Eli only has a broken phone to keep him warm at night.

It’s REALLY stupid – it’s beyond laughable, it’s not even entertaining. I don’t mind so much that they are on a crappy looking cardboard set with ultra-fake looking shrubs and plants that don’t even resemble leftovers from Gilligan’s Island – but the writing, good grief, who WRITES this crap – if I were an actor on this show, honestly and sincerely I would be embarrassed ~

Too funny, Jake….you crack me up.
Well, as I said to Patrick, what would make this story amazing would be if Nikolas Cassadine were on the same Greek Island; and the skull were his. LOL. That’s how stupid and unrealistic this story is.

I’m glad Kassie is healthy and able to return to Days, but I can’t be too excited when we won’t see her until Halloween! The taping schedule is ridiculous, and needs to change. When writers are replaced, we still have to endure months of storylines and characters that aren’t working, and hope that our patience will one day be rewarded when the new writers’ stories finally air. I have at least a month’s worth of episodes in my DVR, and I’m not excited to catch up on them. Abby filing for divorce? Dario suddenly not a citizen? Paul and Sonny… Read more »

Good for Kassie. And while my comment isn’t about Day’s, it goes back to OLTL where I liked her as Blair. Nathan Fillion (a Canadian) was on Kelly Ripa’s show this morning broadcasting live out of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. He and Kelly reminisced about their soap days and friendship back then, even though they were on different shows. He recounted how as 22 yr old Joey Buchanan he got letters from older lady viewers because of his cougar relationship with Dorian Lord, while all the other 22 yr old types got mail from around their age group.… Read more »

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.

Now let us know, are you glad that DAYS is honoring James with this special 40th anniversary episode? What has been your favorite James Reynolds performance as Abe through the years? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Photo: NBC

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
