REPORT: Kassie DePaiva To Make A Return To Days of our Lives!

Over Memorial Day weekend, DAYS fans and even Kassie DePaiva’s former on-screen aunt at OLTL, Robin Strasser (Dorian), have been excited about an item posted on Jason 47’s facebook page.

In the post that has been picking up steam, it relates that DePaiva, one of this year’s Lead Actress nominees at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys will be reprising her role of Eve Larson on the NBC soap later this year, but there is word yet on the length of her stay.  So far DePaiva, nor DAYS, have publicly confirmed this report.

Many longtime DePaiva fans were downtrodden when she was written-off DAYs last year, while ending her on-screen run at the beginning of 2016.  Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, it could be several months, as indicated in the Jason 47 post, before DePaiva is back on-air.

Robin Strasser answered a fans tweet about the report of a DePaiva return tweeting:  “AHHH! INDEED:) OUR DAYS JUST GOT HAPPIER! Congrats to #DOOL & the many fans of @KassieDePaiva I’m one of them XOXOX”

So if this item is confirmed true, do you think Kassie is coming back for a short visit, or a longer stay? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Well, can’t argue with this one. She made it her own, and even though it took months, they finally properly massaged her into the canvas and then made her go, even had her with a new job, new outlook, and she wasn’t even in Jennifer’s circle. That is success to me. Hopefully they can capitalize on this and hopefully they have some real story for her like they did before she left.

If they are killing Teressa off she might be back for just the funeral but i hope she stays!!!

Really, Jimmy? I hadn’t heard about Jen Lilley/Theresa leaving/ killing her off. Awwwww, gee!!

I’m afraid Teresa will be hurt when Zander returns or even killed off and her family will be back for her when she goes off air! Please leave the door open for her to return, she is great for the show!

Celia…my fingers are (also) crossed about Kassie DePaiva permanently returning to DOOL. Oh…and BTW, TPTB getting rid of those GOD-AWFUL teens would seriously DOUBLE MY JOY…DEFIANT LOL!!!!!

Have a good one, my dear.

It certainly sounds like Mizz Jeannie T is going to die! Jen is leaving, three high profile stars returning…probably for her funeral. i can’t imagine her willingly leaving her son or Brady. Or maybe she will have an accident, and be in a coma, or disfigured so they can then find a recast for her. I hope they don’t kill her off. She is a legacy character with unlimited potential!! We as viewers say that after all these years of fake or presumed soap deaths, that death lacks the emotional impact it should have. But on the flipside of that,… Read more »

Hey, JayJay,
It’s always good to see Kassie and have her grace my screen. Sadly, from what I have been reading on this site, she comes to bid farewell to Theresa. I am speechless……which is something very rare for me. Or so I’m told. LOL. Later.

I was hoping Teressa would fall for Chad…dont want it to be Ciara…a Teressa, Chad and Abby triangle could be interesting but they dont write those pretty well anymore-the best was AWs Rachel, Steve and Alice back in the 70s….

Celia…I have been such a big fan of Kassie’s ever since she played the role of Chelsea Reardon on Guiding Light (Oh, how I miss that show!!!!! S-i-g-h.) back in the 1980’s. Any-hoo, even though Kassie’s upcoming appearance is probably short-term (or whatever), having Kassie back is better than ‘no Kassie at all’. Y-e-p.

Later, my dear.

She is truly one of the soap greats . She was poised to take the lead when ms Strasser and Ms. slezak stepped down.

It’s good she’s coming back, but it’s most likely a short term visit to wrap up Theresa’s storyline…Jen Lilley quit and speculation is Theresa will marry Brady and die!!

I hope Kassie stays!

They are killing her off???

Most likely since Kimberly, Eve and Shane will be coming back. I hope they don’t kill her off, but with these writers it’s most likely. They don’t have much imagination.

I hope it isn’t to make room for Susan so she could snatch Brady. Do not like that she-weasel.

It will be a Titanc moment like that cruise ship to disaster storyline.. Unfortunately it will end with ALL the characters on board for some of reason with the final Days scene of the ship sinking while Caroline sings any boy…fare thee well DAYS…

Jenn Lilley quit Days, Kassie is probably coming for Theresa funeral. Please sign Kassie, to a long term contract. Days listen to us fans, we love Kassie. She is a wonderful actress.

wow this news made me cry

this return should be long-term

Does DAYS – need – to do this to get this show back on track

I already feel bitten, Patrick. I haven’t cared much for Theresa since she was tamed. She should’ve stayed the wild beast she was!

Patrick

this thread is a double whammy

which is what I wanted to say

one gone another one coming back

two must see actresses… two ships crossing

but… in any event… even SOD commented on how they miss the Theresa of ole… when she was thee *itch and bad girl to the T

WHICH is… no small feat… when her character is lauded as such… and you cheered and roared for Jeanne Theresa Donovan… LOVE THIS WOMAN

Patrick
Guest

any way… it’s going to break my heart… I love Jenn Lilly acting choice WOW discovering her on GH… wasn’t that an implosion and combustion that just took hold argh! I’m sure their will be more threads to follow.. but… i’m not ready to digest this news I’ve always thought… her presence … her REEL… is as REAL as it gets… she’s a plus credible actor that has proven this is going to go down…. like father like son… When John Black and Isabella … went this route… my ALL’time.. favorite love story. I digress… why should the character die…… Read more »

Not to burst you bubble but it looks like it will be short term. Jen Lilley that plays Theresa is leaving the show and the actors who play her parents Shane and Kimberly are coming back for her exit story. I just hope it’s not for a funeral.

@ Patrick, I agree, Kassie deserves to return as Eve long-term with, or without Theresa’s presence. She had an interesting connection with Justin, that must be fully explored. She also has a link with Claire and her talents as a singer. Eve also has been changed after losing Paige and, it’s time that Eve changes her life around for the better… perhaps with Justin? I hope DAYS makes the right move and offered her a long-term contract. She’s a leading lady! And, she owns the role of Eve.

Absolutely agree with you Jeremy. I have wanted to explore the Eve-Justin relationship since the first time I saw them together. Oh please powers that be, bring Kassie back on contract.

blake

It’s obvious she is back only short term for Theresa’s exit story. Days already has the actors playing Theresa’s parents Shane and Kimberly coming back, so it looks like it might be for Theresa’s funeral. Of course they will kill her off, they are obsessed with killing off characters, not much imagination with these writers.

But I am glad that Kassie and Eve are coming back, even if it’s short term.

Whether it is a short visit or a longer stay, I’ll be happy to watch Kassie as Eve again. I hope tptb realized the mistake they made by letting her go. and have offered her more than just a short visit. She and AM have mad chemistry and Eve and Eddy need to be explored.

I am so very happy the wonderful Kassie DePaiva is coming back to Days. She should have never been let go. Kassie is a terrific, powerhouse actress. I hope this is a permanent return.

No! I wanted her to come to General Hospital! She could play a love interest to Franco and maybe they’re have a history together. Maybe they could dub old oltl footage of them so it can show their history!

This would never happen, but if Stafford ever left, Kassie could easily replace her as Nina. But then we are still left with those burning questions…WHO THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE? WHY DID THEY HIRE A MARQUEE SOAP NAME TO PLAY THE ROLE OF FRANCO, POSSIBLY THE MOST REVILED, DETESTED CHARACTER IN SOAP HISTORY?? WHY ARE THESE CHARACTERS TIED OR ANCHORED TO NOBODY?? WHAT IS THE POINT OF THEIR MOSTLY FILLER STORYLINE? ELIZABETH AND FRANCO, REALLY?? FRANCO, THE SERIAL KILLER CHILD ART THERAPIST? On and on. I get this is fiction, but this has been a mess from the minute… Read more »

It will be good to see her back on TV. Is it really necessary to kill off yet another character? This is getting to be monotonous.

Jen Lilly confirmed her exit/quitting the show on her Twitter page I guess! If Kassie comes back, they need to make it permanent! Loved her as Eve….all due respect for Mary Beth Evans, but Depaiva and Finola Hughes deserved the win this year!

Oooooooh, noooooo!! I don’t want Theresa/Jen to go! The girl is uber-talented though and is on to greener pastures. I wish her well. But I have to say “awwww, nutz”. Such untapped potential in that character.
SO glad to hear about Eve/Massie returning – such potential there, too. Hope they give the actress a storyline worthy of her.

Glad to hear Kassie is coming back. She is a good actress and has spunk. Days needs some spark and life. I hope they write her good storylines and tweak Eve a bit. Kassie can be a dynamo, but she needs to have the right character and storylines. She may fit in better now that there have been major cast changes and storylines. Just a side notes – Days is a revolving door with actors in and out – makes a lack of consistency, but on the other hand can spice things up a bit if the shoe gets my… Read more »

I’m with jaybird369; the teens are terrible ; except Theo. His acting autistic is okay. I don’t want Jen to leave the show; she’s one of the people who makes Days watchable.. However, I do agree that she’s too tame.

Teens storylines are terrible. Almost as bad as Kayla’s constant negativity!

Maybe Kristin will come back and kidnap Theresa to get even for her taking Brady and the baby

Jim Preston

The whole show needs a major overhaul if you ask me. Kayla’s constant complaining is annoying, the teen storylines are just awful – the show was a little bit better when JJ was having an affair with Eve while trying to guard Paige from that unsavory news. At least at that point the show was somewhat compelling.
Now, the show in my opinion is draggy and monotonous, nothing interesting is going on – and for me, without Will, Sonny, EJ, and Sami on the canvas, it just doesn’t attract me in the same manner.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
