Friday marks the final appearance of this run for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan on NBC’s Days of our Lives.   

Returning to the show for an arc of story: Eve was the responsible party for having Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) kidnapped at his wedding to Ciara (Victoria Konefal), all in her efforts for retribution for the death of her daughter, Paige (True O’Brien) at the hands of Ben.

Throughout the storyline, DePaiva once again illustrated why she is one of the true MVP’s of the soaps from her time on Days of our Lives, One Life to Live and General Hospital.  She always gives a 110% to her performances.

Kassie took to Twitter today to express the following on her final airdate:  “It’s a bummer #Eve got caught. Today’s my final air show ⁦@nbcdays Thank you ⁦@carlivatiron for this chance have fun in Salem. Thank you #Days fans for always taking a ride with this character’s journey… no matter how bumpy. #grateful”

So, sad to see Kassie go? What did you think of her performances in this current storyline? Comment below.

Totally stinks! I will miss her! Hopefully she will be back. She deserves more respect than this! She is a super actress.

I loved her as Chelsea on Guiding Light when she was just starting out in Soaps. Haven’t seen her as Eve on DOOL other than her mini stint at GH when there was a Tad overlay. Maybe Kassie can make her way over to Genoa City and bring some love to Jack???

Don’t let the door hit ya where my Former Employer split ya, NOT-Eve!

For the love of all that’s unholy, let that be the end of this destruction of a once great Days character. I don’t even want to hear the name “Eve Donovan” again, unless the REAL Eve returns one day. And that probably shouldn’t be too soon, given that she wouldn’t want to have to carry the albatross around her neck of what this travesty has done to the character.

No way Charlotte Ross could have ever pulled any of this off! Kassie DePaiva can act circles around her!

What you want is of no importance to the producers and writers of DOOL. Haven’t you figured that out yet?

I was actually ON Days of Our Lives for a while (remember when I possessed Marlena) so I think I probably have a better idea of how things work there than you might think.

Not inside ReRon’s head though…. that’s a barren landscape no demon would want to get trapped in.

Kassie DePaiva deserves much better. She is a legend, the writing and story line for Eve was much better several seasons ago, the year she was nominated and SHOULD have won the Emmy. I wish one of the three better written soaps would snatch her up…

Hi, Echo
Unfortunately, in my opinion, none of the other soaps is doing any better—-Actually ( comparatively speaking), Days is bringing it for me, albeit Kassie’s suddendeparture left me wanting.
The only appeasement would be to have Adrienne return. I said this before and I’ll say it again…..Bonnie is Adrienne. It’s Salem—the impossible becomes reality—C’mon, ye gods—do your thing.

Bad writing has ruined this character. Way over the top.

Over the top is Ron!

Kassie DePaiva is a damn good actress. No doubt about it! With all the turnover (aka turmoil?) in the cast, I hate to see her leave.

You won’t find an actor more loyal!

I love Kassie and her deplorable exit truly befuddles me. This is one character whom could have been redeemed—-instead, she is leaving with a heavy load of dirty laundry—a bad mother, a backstabber, a seductress of boys, a cheater, a manipulator and a crazy woman.
I hope she comes back as a different character. Sorry to see her go….

Will never miss her character. Hope this is the end of her! Don’t know who is worse, she or Kristen. Yes they are trying to redeem Kristen but to me she will always be like a time bomb ready to blow up, unless you stay on her good side.

The story arc was awful. I just don’t find torture entertainung. However, Kassie DePaiva’s performance was fantastic. She clearly showed why she did it.

hope to see her on a show somewhere soon… she is always highly enjoyable no matter where she is acting… she was even able to shine on oltl online 🙂

Why is Eve leaving before the story of Ben/Ciara is not even close to an end ? Her performance was great but she should remain to feel the wrath of Hope and Ben.

PS.
Bonnie died in the car acciden—-don’t know how the “switch” happened ( Dr. Rolf’s henchmen?) —-that’s not for me to figure out. LOL

kassie always gives any character she portrays her 100%! I wish she could get a permanent part on either GH or Y&R. She ìs too good of an actress to do something
for just short segment. No matter what, it is always great to see her no matter what soap city she turns up in!

Time for Blair to reunite with her one-time friend, Carly?

Not now. Not ever. The stench of OLTL still pollutes GH enough as it is.

I guess she forgot she also recorded the episode that aired Monday September 14 !

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: What Will Diana Tell Leo? Is John Really His Father?

This week on Days of our Lives, Judith Chapman is back for a one-day stint as Diana Colville when her son, Leo (Greg Rikaart) visits her in prison.

In story, Diana was sent to the slammer, for back in 2019 she tried to murder Marlena (Deidre Hall), and at the time she admitted (or claims) she falsified the DNA tests that originally proved the John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was Leo’s father. Leo turned his back on his mother and has not seen or spoken to her again.

However, recently Leo has visited Marlena as his shrink to try to get to the bottom of why he is the way he is. Upon Marlena’s suggestion, she advises him to see his mother.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest on her upcoming key scenes, Chapman expressed, “Diana was not happy about him going to Marlena for help and Leo is like, ‘Yeah, Mom, I’m figuring this out because you messed me up so much in my life.'”

Judith teased,“She (Diana) stays in control so she’s not breaking down but her facade definitely cracks. By the time we finished the scenes, everybody who was in earshot started applauding. I thought it was just a token, ‘Oh, welcome back, Judith,’ but it was because Greg and I apparently knocked it out of the park. The director came out, threw her hands up and was like, ‘You did it, you did it!’ Greg and I hugged and just clung to each other for 15, 20 seconds.”

Make sure to tune-in to the Tuesday, June 25th of the Peacock streaming soap opera to see the showdown between Leo and Diana.

So, do you think Leo is John’s biological son after all? Do you think Diana will reveal something else that will help Leo figure out why he does the things he does? Are you excited to see Judith and Greg in scenes again, after years as Y&R mother and son, Gloria and Kevin, and then on Days as Diana and Leo?

Check out our recent Daytime Emmy Red Carpet interview with Greg below. Then, let us know your theories in the comment section.

Jimenez, thanked among others the series producer, director and writers for trusting in her including: Janet Drucker, Noel Maxam, Ron Carlivati and Ken Corday, and her agents for helping her along the way in her show business journey.

Now 15 years later at 36 years old the universe told me I was now ready to step into this role…Thank you ✨ …I am just beginning ✨”

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.
