Stacy Haiduk On DAYS Exit: “Let’s Not Write Kristen DiMera Off Quite Yet! Is Anyone Really Gone in Salem?”

Over the last 24 hours, fans of NBC’s Days of our Lives saw various reports and one in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, that Stacy Haiduk is exiting her role of Kristen DiMera.

In answer to the outcry and reports, Haiduk took to her Instagram account on Thursday and shared the following message to all of her fans:  “So yesterday you all read that I was leaving Day’s!!! But Let’s not write Kristen Dimera off quite yet! Is anyone really gone in Salem. After all I am the Phoenix.  This heartfelt journey of Kristen, Brady and baby Rachel has been so amazing! These two characters have worked so hard this past year to be together! From the pages of the writers to us actors, I am truly blessed and grateful to all you fans who came on this journey! I love your support and your enthusiasm! Thank you so much!! Love & Light! xoxo”

Currently, Haiduk is front and center in an emotional story as Kristen is trying to get her baby girl Rachel back, now that she has been kidnapped by Sarah (Linsey Godfrey), and in addition when vowing revenge on Victor (John Aniston) for his part in switching her baby with Sarah’s, she stabbed him.  Kristen is in hot water with the law while longing to be a mother to her baby.

Since DAYS tapes so far in advance, anything is possible with returns to the show as viewers have seen before, especially when you least expect it.

So, what do you think of Stacy’s statement? What do you hope happens for Kristen in the coming weeks? Comment below.

I hope she isn’t leaving.

Of course she’ll be back. It’s Kristen. She’s the mean, mean, mean DiMera even if they softened her character.

She made Kristen my favorite. Honestly this saddens me beyond belief! No disrespect for Linsey Godfrey but I’d so much rather see Sarah leave. Like leave and come back later a changed woman. Less whining and more SpunkFitness maybe! Why do they get rid of the good ones? First Adrienne now Kristen! So mad!

Same here no disrespect to Linsey but Sarah is a pain in the butt.Always as to have things her way or she acts like a little baby.I know it isnt her fault it is what she is given.Still i dont like Sarah.Your are right they always seem to get rid of the good ones.Did they say why Stacy is leaving.That is ashame.I hope they dont replace her.

If anyone likes Linsey you can see her on a couple of Lifetime movies.

Totally agree with you!

I think that Sarah acts like she never does anything wrong.Well she is doing wrong now.I feel sorry for her because she was lied to about the babyI would be upset to but there is no reason to kidnap the baby.Then put a gag over Philips mouth that is not acceptable.I understand how she feels I would feel the same way but I know better to take the baby and run.I know it is the story written for her and like i said it isnt her fault then again she needs to bring back the baby,I dont know maybe a different actress would be better.Who knows.funny thing in a Lifetime movie she was in, her baby was kidnapped.SHe wasnt bad at all in that.She is not a bad actress .As Sarah though i dont know she looks like she is reading the script.I never saw her before Days.I wonder now if Sarah will get a mental illness,belive me there is nothing wrong with that.Cause i have five of them.If she would stop acting like a big baby then maybe things would be different.There are thing sometimes the writer rights make no sense to me at all.Sara needs to grow up.

But it was hard watching Stacy in her scenes.
Some roles should never be recast. On Days, Marlena, Hope , Patch etc. They are iconic. Stacys version was fill in. Do it right and quick and bend over backward to accomodate Eileen to come back to the role even for an intense short term shooting schedule.Eric M and Eileens chemistry was hot, hell even Greg Vs and her.
Eileens Kristen is worth it!!!.
No one can ever be Kristen except Eileen.

I respectfully disagree with you! She made this role her own. I actually prefer her as Kristen now!

Kristen either goes to prison or on the run with the baby…then sarah will try to get close to Brady…they will fall in love and plan to get married then kristen returns!!!

Oh Good Gawd! Please no Sarah and Brady!


Both Brady and Eric seem to have the same personality now and just being consumed with themselves and self pity with a touch of entitlement has lost its appeal.

^^^^ @Phillip : get it !!!! Yes…. thru – “ALL” – the insanity…. I have watched very little… argh!!!! I am so done with GH. @DAYS .. I am trying to watch… what has kept me wanting ???? Stacey Haiduk, thee Man Eric Martsolf. these two have rung me up

I have long posted that I’ve always thought Stacey Haiduk OWNS her take and REELS Kristen.
the dynamics, chemistry with Martsolf !!! hey… this is sexual, passionate, endearing, and YOU want the love to take… the angst the heartache, the loss of Rachel… oh this was painful !!!!! but no !!!!! TA DA.. we are back, united, and it’s so beautiful, loving, touching, it’s DAYS BEST STUFF. so to even think of this story NOT PLAYING OUT.. it smarts, dumbstruck, AND a HUGE LOSS.


right out of the gate

Kristen and Brady
Sarah and Xander
Nicole and Eric

are top shelf

this doesn’t even count Chad and Abs

watching the writers flesh out Stacey Haiduk , and give Kristen “heart” “feel” “touch” and to watch her move weave interplay with the denizen @Salem. She’s the go to.


I have yet to watch her reunion with Rachel… but i’m going to CRY. heart release the DAMn

have I told you Eric Martsolf is a helluva sexy dance

this doesn’t even include MEGa Ben AND Cierra… GOD talk about

i’m not the age you want… desired

but I know sex

“WE All Do…’ ”

I still like Matthew Ashford’ tingle with Jenn
Victor AND Maggie… always
John and Marlena – deservedly so
in and of themselve’ Kayla; Justin; Stephan/Patch; Tony

this 8/9 month “wait” does have it’s MIXED

“Days; thank you god” I got Kristen; Brady; Rachel

whew! this was much to do

Oh no I really liked Stacy at first I didnt think anyone could replace Eileen but I liked her the minute I saw her,SHe played her very well.To be honest I dont miss Eileen at all like I thought I would.No offense Eileen because I like you to.However I have grown to really like Stacy.ANyway everyone stay safe and well.

I think Stacey is better in the role then Eileen! Stacey has much more Depth.

Kristen will be back with her daughter.

I don’t mind seeing her go. I never liked the character of Kristen, but did like the actresses portraying her. I preferred Eileen as Kirsten and Stacy as Patty.She was more sympathetic as Patty but did a good job as Kristen. I could never buy into her “I am a changed person” routine though. Maybe having this baby softened her some, but I will never accept a complete change. Although I won’t miss her,I would have rather that Lindsey Godfrey/Sarah was leaving. She gets on my very last nerve, as actress and character. I didn’t mind her too much on B&B but on here she’s obnoxious and grating. I never saw another Sarah so maybe that is how tptb like her played.

So glad she is gone. Never liked her as Kristen and will never accept her. However, I know she will be back from the sounds of it.

So dam upset with days….. They keep some actresses that they should not and they keep keeping the character of Kristen on and off!!!!!! Kristen should be a strong women head of Demira enterprises like the young and restless does and is proven very successful!
I will not watch again until Kristen comes back for good!

Stacy is a tour de force. I will miss her on Days.

Honestly all the leaving then returning is just becoming more a publicity stint. Its really kind of annoying

Jonah Robinson Joins the Cast of Days of our Lives as Dr. Mark Greene

If you caught last Wednesday’s June 12th episode of Days of our Lives, a new doctor came running into Horton Town Square shirtless; much to the delight and then eventual chagrin of Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart).

Enter actor Jonah Robinson who is now on the Peacock streaming soap opera in the recurring role of Dr. Mark Greene. We meet Mark when Leo tries to hit on him, only to have Mark clarify to Leo he is straight, shocking Leo that his gaydar could have been so off.

Later, Mark is at University Hospital and stepping in for Chanel’s (Raven Bowens) doctor who was called away for the day and he assures Chanel and Johnny (Carson Boatman) that their unborn baby has a strong heartbeat, and at the moment is doing fine.

During the conversation, Mark reveals he is the big brother to his little sister, Felicity (Kennedy Garcia), with whom Chanel loves when she comes to the bake shop.  There was also a little ‘wink-wink’ moment, when Johnny recalls that the doctor on the hit NBC medical drama, ER, was named Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), to which Salem’s Mark Greene, says he was named after.

Taking to his Instagram, Robinson shared, “Meet Dr. Mark Greene. So excited to be joining @dayspeacock. It’s an honor to be @kennedyjean04 @louis_tomeo ‘s big brother.”

So, it looks like there are 3 Greene siblings.  Will we eventually meet the parents?

Before Days of our Lives, Jonah was seen on Peacock’s Daisy Jones and the Six, and has appeared in independent movies and musical theatre productions throughout his career.

Do you hope DAYS expands Jonah’s role as the Greene family becomes more entrenched in story? What are you first impressions? Comment below.

AnnaLynne McCord Previews Her Days of our Lives Debut; But is She Playing Abigail?

Next week, circle Wednesday June 19th for the on-screen debut of AnnaLynne McCord said to be a “mystery woman” on Peacock’s Days of our Lives, as Chad (Billy Flynn) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) are on the case to try to see if they can find any leads to find an alive Abigail,

McCord, who has her own soapy history having appeared in roles on TNT’s Dallas reboot and the 90210 reboot, comes to Salem with plenty of television experience in primetime.

Now that Chad was told by Clyde Weston (James Read) that Abigail is actually alive? Could McCord be playing a recast Abigail? Since it appears Marci Miller did not come back to the show to reprise her role? Or, is McCord playing a completely different character.

Photo: JPI

To prepare viewers for emergence on the DAYS canvas, AnnaLynne spoke to where she explained the genesis of who she is or might be playing.

Following the end to the SAG-AFTRA strike in November of 2023, the idea of McCord coming to DAYS began to percolate, and she actually started taping at DAYS in January of this year.

Photo: JPI

Citing a lot of upheaval at the time, McCord was not clear on what part she was going to be playing, “To be frank, it was very ambiguous in the beginning. Obviously, there was a writer transition and everything that was going on within the industry politically so to speak. So when I initially came on, no one really knew who I was gonna be. We were figuring it out as we went.”

However, McCord did tease, “What fans who are clearly very clever will come to figure out very early on is that a certain gentleman who is not quite so gentle by the name of Clyde Weston has his fingers in the storyline of my character. So I enter day one as ‘Mystery Woman.’”

So, do you think AnnaLynne McCord will be the new and alive Abigail Deveraux DiMera, or do you think she is playing someone brainwashed to believed to be Abigail, or she is playing a totally different character? Share your theories via the comment section below.
