THIS WEEK ON DAYS: Kassie DePaiva Makes Her Debut As Eve Donovan!

Courtesy/NBC

Finally!  After months of waiting, daytime favorite from Guiding Light, One Life to Live, and for a time, General Hospital, Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair) makes her official on-screen debut as the recast Eve Donovan on Days of our Lives. Eve was last played by Charlotte Ross!

What will happen when Eve comes to town? Well, we know Eve has no love lost for Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and clearly it appears she is the mother of Paige (True O’Brien)!  Will Eve fall to the charms of Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian)?  Or, set her sights on someone else? And it now appears Eve is a singer! Perfect for DePaiva, right?  Then there is the little ditty that Eve is the older sis of Teresa (Jen Lilley)!  Will there be sisterly love between these two?

Watch this week’s NBC promo for DAYS heralding the arrival of Kassie DePaiva after the jump!  And oh … there is one more thing in the teaser!  Sami (Alison Sweeney) asks Abigail  (Kate Mansi) to be her maid of honor to her wedding to EJ (James Scott)!  Now how is that going to play out?  Better think again, Sami!  Excited to see Kassie on daytime again?  Let us know!

had to reply here: Paige and J.J. have had make out scenes so if she turned out to be Jacks that means J.J. and Paige would be half siblings which would be gross unless they are doing that Marie and Tommy Horton storyline or if somehow J.J. isnt Jacks…J.J. looks like a young Frankie Brady…i briefly stopped watching when J.J. was born…anyway i like J.J. and Paige as the next generations leading young couple so i hope they arent related…maybe Eve and Danial met years ago and Danial turns out to be Paiges daughter…? But it would be something if… Read more »

There are so many intriguing possibilities! I like JJ and Paige too. Maybe a who’s the father storyline will lead them to the wrong conclution, a very likely thing with Teresa involved! I’m stoked!!!

I meant father but im wrong on that part…lol…

Well, i guess Paige isnt Danials daughter…im still hoping Frankie, or Peter is her father or Eve was once involved with Jordan and Bens father, who i wish was Peter Blake, then Paige could be tied to them, and the Dimeras…

It would be a shocker if Jack, Frankie and Peter came back! It would be nice to have the DiMera family reenergized with Peter Blake and Chad. Maybe Lexie has a twin sister.

Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I originally hoped Eve was Jordan and Bens parents to move that story along…maybe Eve was involved with their father who was abusive and Jordan or Ben killed him…im ok with her being Paiges mom…so Teressa will try to break up J.J. and her niece Paige…Teressa will help big sis Eve break up Jen and Danial…having someone trying to break Jen and Dan over and over again is very BORING…cant the writers come up with something different for this couple…Days is my favorite of the 4 soaps but if it keeps repeating itself with the constant break up with Danifer… Read more »

The constant storyline of having someone break up Danifer is redundant and a sign new writers might be needed!!!

If Eve is Paige’s mom will Frankie Brady be her father or will Jordan and Bens father turn out to be Paiges father whoever he is: wish its Peter Blake played by Kassies husband James Depaiva?

great post James DePaiva would do wonders and through the roof business….

I don’t watch the show…I did love Kassie on OLTL. Good for her that she’s found daytime work again. But…the older sister of Jen Lilley? Kassie is I believe 53…and Jen is around 29. Sisters? I guess on the dad’s side…

Yes, same father (Shane), different mothers (Gabrielle and Kimberly).

@4ever DAYS…ha! As mentioned I only watch GH…but yes, I would be curious to check out Kassie…but then again I’d like to see Sean Kanan on The Bold and the Beautiful. That’s the “risk” of following an actor…too much TV!!!! 😉

I’ll have to take a sneak peek at each and pry myself away….

I’m sure they’re going to revise birth dates a little to make Eve younger than Cassie DePaiva’s actual age and maybe make Theresa a bit older.

Tony Polar
Guest

Kassie looks more 40’ish than 53 to me – so she can I guess “get away” with playing just a tad younger than her actual birthdate. If she “went to high school” with Jennifer, than how old is Jennifer supposed to be? They obviously will both be battling for Daniel’s attentions (I mean it’s pretty clear that’s where the storyline is heading) so how old is Daniel supposed to be? It would seem that he would be a bit younger – gets confusing, age wise, on soaps.

rebecca1

What I always find amusing is how they have actors playing parents of grown children…who are in reality pretty close in age. But I guess that’s the power of suspending our disbelief…

I hope I don’t upset you Kassie fans (this is the first time I have ever heard of her….I only watch DOOL)—-BUT, she is WAY TOO OLD TO PLAY EVE! I mean COME ON writers! I know people can play younger than they are…and Kassie looks good for her age…but she does NOT look like she could be Shane’s daughter! Charles Shaughnessy, who plays Shane, is 59 and Kassie is 53! I thought it was a stretcg when Charoltte Ross played her….Charlotte being only 13 years younger than Charles. But Charlotte was young, had a “baby face”, and pulled it… Read more »

I am going to tune in just for Kassie. I finally gave up on GH as I am just not one for short attention span theater, and I am barely hanging in there with Y&R. I always thought Kassie would have been great for the part of Rayna on Nashville.

I am glad DAYS is there for this soap fan after the loss of ATWT, AMC, OLTL… And DAYS does not seem the bizarre odd daytime drama it was in the 1990s. Solid stories, interesting actors and characters. Kassie DePaiva only adds to my interest and excitement about the program.

how can it get any better

this pairing… latched on with knowing intelligence for their craft

Uproarious cheer for DOOL

now hop on the bandwagon…. and get James DePaiva as Peter Blake for further entrails to captivate

in the meantime… Wally Kurth could use some business… and our time savored with : the hottest plug of tantalize… herculean efforts steam rolled…. Eve – Justin – Adrienne

Finally! Paige’s mother?! It’s going to be a little strange/hard seeing Kassie as Eve.

Mo

Who’s the daddy of Paige?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I hope her father is either Peter Blake, Frankie Brady or maybe Danial…i have another guess above tieing her to Jordan and Ben but i like my first three guesses the best!!! Eve and Jen were enemies so it would be interesting if Frankie was Paiges father since Jen and Frankie were once involved…Eve could come between Jen and Danial if he was her pappy…if Peter Blakes the daddy it would make Paige another Dimera…endless possibilities!!!

Mo

Mo

Did Eve ever hook up with Peter Blake? I don’t remember it.

You’re absolutely right, Jim! Of all the choices, none would be bad! Personally, I’m hoping Frankie is Paige’s father, but it’s all good!

Paige’s dad is Eve;s old pimp Nick Corelli

Eve never was with Peter on screen but couldve met him off screen after leaving Salem…its just one of several possibilities on my wish list!

I think DOOL needs to address why Ben and Jordan seem to be on the run. This storyline has gone long enough. Something needs to shake it up because I no longer care about Jordan’s storyline with Rafe. It seems crazy he would not have sled for more concrete answers about her past, especially being a police officer. I am ready for Eve to come back to the show. But, it doesn’t make any sense that she is related to Theresa and they have never shared a scene and it seems Theresa does not know they are related. Has she… Read more »

4ever DAYS
Guest
4ever DAYS

Hi Ray! I think Rafe will spin out of control because of Gabi going to prison. He will push Jordan away and end up with Kate. That will probably be when the mystery man finds Jordan and Rafe will not be there to help her. Ben to the rescue! This story could end up being one of the best ever!

Hang in there. I think we’ll get a good payoff!!!

It better be a good payoff because like Ray said its gone on long enough and ive also complained about its dragginess…maybe Eve will be part of it too!!!

Why do they keep saying “cousin”? How is the child of your half-sister a cousin? Isn’t she a niece? Actually, since they mean Theresa, isn’t she an aunt? I assume they are speaking of Theresa, as it sure looked like her aprtment Paige was in the other day. (I wonder where she hangs out when Theresa and Brady are banging and coking up on the couch.) :p

cinicic
Guest
cinicic

I figured out for myself that if Frankie is Paige’s father, like someone up above suggested, then Theresa and Paige would be cousins, since Frankie is Kimberly’s brother (though not biologically, of course.) How awsome would it be if Billy Warlock came back?!

Mo
Guest
Mo

I too was wondering who this cousin is that Paige is staying with. But I don’t see how Paige could be staying with Theresa as JJ has been to Theresa’s apartment and surely he’d recognize it. Plus, with all the drugging and sexing Theresa and Brady are into, no wonder Paige would rather pick up trash.

And yes, Theresa is Paige’s aunt, not cousin.

MBmomof3
Guest
MBmomof3

When JJ and Paige were making out on the couch the other day I was like, “isnt’ that Theresa’s apartment”? I thought it couldn’t be because JJ would know it was Theresa’s apartment. What’s up with that? Suddenly Paige got interesting to me.

cinicic
Guest
cinicic

I agree with both of you. It did at least look like Theresa’s place, but then again, I guess all of those Salem apartments kind of look alike, so maybe it wasn’t???? Or maybe JJ has selective amnesia? 🙂 (Or the writers think we do haha)

Love Cassie but she is too old to play Eve. I must say it again, Cassie should be Phyllis on Y&R and Gina Tognoli (nu-Phyllis) should be Eve.

Patrick
Guest

I think Kassie DePaiva is going to be just fine…. as Eve… I Love how much press she is

i think as the older Gina Tognoni gets… her chiseled hard features will wane on and would be too edgy

I like Kassie DePaiva full figure soft healthy becoming look again is stirring trigger
I certainly liked/loved her on GH… I’d say KP and Laura wright were so similar… but… it’s Kassie that intrigues more

I think KD as Eve.. is able to pull off a mind of her own and render Eve with character aplomb… and take Salem by storm….

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

then one thing I’m fretting :

don’t let another actor… who’s quality big stuff… go by the wayside… just for used to be grans jewel dull dim Jennifer HORTON….

I’m livid and so OVER : Jenn parading HER crusade holier than thou grandstand…

how dare she diss Theresa like yesterdays news and trash her…. what an opportune big time venture for Kassie DePaiva to bring her down

by this point… Daniel and Jenn could be naked in Horton Square…. as SQUARE as they are…. Adam and Eve …

if disdain is on… i’m it

There is an opportunity for Kassie to replace Eileen Davidson as the villainess we “love to hate”. Toward that end, I wish Kassie MUCH success! Days really needs her now that Eileen has signed with Y&R. Sock it to’em, Kassie!

I mean no disrespect to Kassie DePaiva. But, she is NOT, and I will never accept her as Eve Donovan. I have watched “Days” since 1983. So, I watched the show through the entire “Eve” years. Charlotte Ross portrayed that role exceptionally. Kassie’s a wonderful actress. But, in my opinion, she is not Eve Donovan. I feel the same way about Josh Taylor portraying Roman Brady. No offense Josh, but you are not, never walks, and never will be Roman Augustus Brady. Wayne Northrop will always be Roman Brady.

OKAY…..Kassie’s age is RIDICULOUS as Eve Donovan! Charles Shaugnessy is 59 years old….Kassie DePaiva is 53 !!!!!!!! Couldn’t “Days” execs made a better offer to Charlotte Ross to reprise HER role as the ONE and DEFINITIVE Eve Donovan.
