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.

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!

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… Read more »

Cool
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!

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.

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… Read more »

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!

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
