Kassie DePaiva Confirms Exit From 'Days Of Our Lives'

These last few months have been nothing short of a whirlwind of change for fans of Days of Our Lives. The long-running NBC soap is celebrating its 50th anniversary on the network in grand style, by bringing back beloved characters such as Patch, Bo Brady and many more. The head writers have also been cleaning house via a serial killer, in an almost desperate attempt to bring the show back to its roots. Today it has been confirmed that Kassie DePaiva, a serious favorite in daytime television will also be leaving fictional Salem.

"As the sand runs out of my hourglass over at DAYS... I have no regrets. I had a truly remarkable experience there. From the beginning as Eve showed up in town and throughout her bumpy ride through Salem it has all been a good time for me. I got to work with people that I have admired for many years. It saddens me to have been let go from the show just as Eve was finally finding her footing… But that is the way the Soap business goes. Characters come and go just as actors, writers, and producers. Some we love... Some we hate... But fortunately for all of us the stories still go on. Keep watching and here's to 50 more years of Days of our Lives!!!" said the actress on her personal website earlier today.

While Days fans are actually happy to trade in some of the lesser-known actors in favor of seeing core family characters back onscreen, DePaiva's exit will likely cause a bit of an uproar, especially since it sounds like it was storyline dictated. While the actress has only been on the Days canvas since last year when the show had her step into the shoes of the once-popular character, Eve Donovan, DePaiva has been a force in daytime television for more than 20 years now.

Are you surprised to see that the powers-that-be have included her in the mass exodus?
