When the official news broke this morning that One Life to Live favorite Kassie DePaiva is the new Eve Donovan of Days of our Lives, some fans have been upset that Charlotte Ross, who has been approached by the NBC soap opera to return to the role she was so remembered by, did not get the part.

However, Charlotte took to Twitter a few hours ago to reveal why the deal between her and DAYS fell through.   The actress tweeted:  “I had to pass on reprising my FAVE role, Eve Donovan, as I’m currently filming 3 projects (NASHVILLE-abc now) & I know Kassie will be wonderful!”

Speaking of Nashville, according to TV Line, we can look for the talented Ross, who also sings, to appear in a March episode of the Music City drama based series.  Ross will play a sober alcoholic who formerly worked as a back up singer on Rayna’s (Connie Britton) tours. She shares a unique spark with Deacon (Charles Esten) as they are both survivors of a troubled past.  Could this be yet another new woman in Deacon’s life?

So, according to Charlotte she had three projects in the works that precluded from returning to DAYS, thus Kassie DePaiva will take over the role! So what do you think about Charlotte’s tweet? And her new guest star role on Nashville?  Let us know!

    Good for her she is so neat! I don’t watch Nashville but she will be a welcome addition to that snooze fest!

    Maybe she could still return in 2015 as the new Sami…shes only 5 years older than Greg who plays Samis bro Eric!!!

    Thanks for posting this Michael. I am pretty heartbroken about Charlotte not getting to reprise this character. She is a genuinely beautiful actress, and has a quality of vulnerability and strength of character reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe. It hurts because Eve she regards as the role of her career and she always wanted to come back to Days, which is like a home for her. I accepted Robert Kelker Kelly as Bo Brady, so I’m sure I’ll come to accept Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan. But in our heart of hearts, we know that Peter Reckell and Charlotte Ross are the definitive performers of those characters. The stars were perfectly aligned for Charlotte’s return as Eve but for some tragic reason, it just didn’t happen. I will accept Kassie DePaiva, a commendable soap opera veteran but in my heart, Eve will always be that girl-woman played with such exquisite sensitivity and humanity by the phenomenal Charlotte Ross. For me, she is iconic.

    Classy lady and wish her well

    Charlotte Ross is 46 and Kassie Depaiva is 52 – Whoa, such a great age difference! REALLY?!!!! Lassie is a good actress and is great at playing a vixen! I will be watching!!!


  6. Jules says:

    Understandable. I like that Kassie is joining the show, and though I’ve never seen Charlotte in the roll, I know she had a huge following as Eve as was a really loved character. So I did worry when I read Kassie was joining as Eve. But now that it’s been explained by Charlotte herself, the show wanted her back first before looking elsewhere, I am fully back to being excited about Kassie joining the show!

    Hope she has a great time! Everyone always fits right into the show….they have the most fun cast of all the shows. I have no doubt Kassie will too.

    We the fans, some of whom are now ex fans of CR, were simply used to drum up publicity for her!


    Patrick replied

    you know… it perturbs.. me… if these “3″ gigs.. are short term.. and not a contract… she could have … returned.. to the role that made her….

    be that as it may… it’s all good… because.. “DAYS” is not floundering… and enduring… and making inroads… to best soap


  8. Patrick says:

    “she” is SO hot looking in that pic above! wowsa… with Yikes!

    I got caught up in the potential pairing of her and Jen Lilly’ Theresa

    the new queens of DOOL…..


  9. Wendelyn Sullivan says:

    Cant’ wait to see Charlotte on Nashville, and hear her singing on there too.


  10. Connie Delle Donne says:

    Silas and Sam’s love story is like a great romance novel that gets juicer and juicer as you read on. Silas and Sam’s chemistry is smoldering HOT. Michael Easton is an amazing actor and brings life to every character he portrays. My favorite scene and I hope it gets submitted is when Silas tells Sam about having a wife. And of course their love scene New Year’s Eve it was so passionate! Silas and Sam are my favorite GH couple and I hope they can make it through this sticky situation that they are in. I pray that still end up together. Please DO NOT bring back Jason or Nina! Let Silas and Sam move on TOGETHER!!!

    @Connie what are you beating the Silas/Sam tomtom for on a DOOL post??? Love the passion but post where post be posted!!


  11. LO23 says:

    DAYS is pulling a GL. When KZ, Phillip, and Beth left GL in 90/91, they brought on new characters and with Sami leaving Days, I think they’ll bring people like Eve, Aiden, and Liam to the show to fill the void.


    Patty replied

    Charlotte also played Judy Fabray on Glee


  12. Mo says:

    Wish she’d gone back to Days. I don’t think KP is the right fit for this character.


  13. davlestev1 says:

    HMMMM…Depaiva…HMMMMM…This is a we’ll talk about it as it unfolds on screen moment..cuz..HMMM..Depaiva…HMMM


  14. davlestev1 says:

    Could they have at least tried for Jane Krakowski or Megan Hilty?? HMMM…Depaiva…HMMMM


  15. Satan says:

    Looking forward to seeing Charlotte on Nashville, but I would have rather seen her back on Days.

    Not at all looking forward to OLTL taking over yet another show.


  16. Jared says:

    Charlotte is even more beautiful than she was 30 years ago! What a lovely lady! I wish her the best with her new endeavors, and I am so glad she is doing well.

    I’m also looking forward to seeing another talented lovely, Mrs. Depaiva, on DAYS. I wish we could have more Kim and Shane and maybe even a Gabrielle Pascal return!


  17. Arlene says:

    Just finished this weeks episode of Nashville . I couldn’t believe it when Charlotte Ross was there in front of me . Bette Midler singing Wind Beneath My Wings made me think of Charlotte as she sang it on Days way back when . Once I heard her sing on the show I was like ” what the heck is she doing on a soap ? She had such a beautiful voice , I can’t wait to hear it / her again . Awesome !!!!!


  18. Julie says:

    I am still bummed! No disrespect to Kassie, who is a fine actress as well, but Eve in my mind. will always be Charlotte Ross, no one could match her back in the day. Ah well.


    Jojo replied

    me too


  19. william says:

    this sucks/ i cant accept kassie depavia in that role.


  20. william says:

    it is like comparing jess walton to Brenda Dickson-who is the only Jill Abbott.


  21. Jojo says:

    I wish it was Charlotte…… would be so much better.\


  22. Marjie says:

    Well, so far, this recast is not working for me. Hopefully, Kassie D.’s contract is just short term and can be cut loose to clear the way when Charlotte Ross’s schedule opens up. No offense to Kassie; it would be hard for anyone to take over this character.


  23. Angela says:

    No Offense to Kassie but Charlotte should of got the role as Eve since really it is her role. I hope Days producers will reconsider. PLEASE BRING CHARLOTTE ROSS BACK. Thank you


  24. Karen says:

    I agree!! Charlotte Ross Needs to come back as Eve. Her and Patsy Pease worked so well together . She would be a fantastic step sister to Teresa’s character. Hope to see Patsy and Charles back on .. Loved those characters;)))
