Daytime fan favorite, Kassie DePaiva, will soon be off the canvas on-screen on Days of our Lives.  DePaiva previously announced she had been let-go from the series several months back in September.  Since DAYS tapes almost six months ahead, Kassie’s final airdate as Eve Donovan is coming up next month.

On Monday, Kassie took to her Twitter account and announced: “Enjoy these last few grains of sand in my hourglass. My last air date on @nbcdays is 2/2. Time is running out. #DAYS”

The former star of One Life to Live where she played Blair Cramer for over 20 years, came to Days of our Lives as a recast Eve.  The role was originally played by Charlotte Ross.  In story, Eve had an affair with the much-younger JJ, and eventually lost her daughter Paige at the hands of the necktie serial killer, Ben Weston, the character hasn’t been given much to do.

Many fans have been very vocal about DePaiva’s performances when Eve learns that Paige (True O’Brien) has died, andin her first scenes with A Martinez (Eduardo). They feel her work deserves an Emmy nomination in this year’s competition.

So, sad to learn that Kassie’s last DAYS airdate is fast-approaching? Let us know in the comment section below!

    She wasnt Eve when she first started and was dumped with some terrible storylines but as writing improved so did KD as Eve who made the character her own…she could of made a great rival of Kate’s for Eddie…she had good chemistry with Justin…i would of liked a storyline where Theressa’s designs for Basic Black are a hit and Kate realizes without her Basic Black might of failed then Theressa abandons Basic Black and she and Eve open their own rival company.

    Letting her go was a poor decision. She’s a great actress and there was a lot of potential for story with the character.

    I always thought they should have brought Frankie back & had Page be his daughter– a daughter he didn’t know about. There was so much potential with where to go with Eve. They lost an opportunity here just like they did by wasting Melissa Archer as Sabrina with that cartoon story line.

    mrsnoahdrake replied

    I have had the same thought! Then that would have made a much more interesting Jen/ Eve rivalry! And Paige would be a Brady (even though Frankie was adopted, it doesn’t matter).
    And Frankie could have been involved as the lawyer with the whole story about the royalties from Jack’s book.
    Too late, once again!
    Best of luck to Kassie on her future endeavors.

    It boggles the mind to think that this incredibly talented and gorgeous actress is out of work when other actresses who cannot act their way out of a hat are gainfully employed.
    Send her over to GH as a new character who will kick Nina ro the curb and end this Stinko they call Nico.

    This is a huge loss for the show in a year of a lot of losses. KD was amazing during the aftermath of Paige’s death. The writers should have giving Eve a life other than stalking Paige and Jennifer. I will miss her amazing talent. Wake up “GH,” “B&B” or “Y&R” and pick up this powerhouse.

    Donna-
    Extremely ignorant statement….Kassie is an excellent actress, she is beautiful, and even though she may not be 20 years old…she certainly has many many more years of working. Lastly, best not to judge financial situations, as you never know the truth AND honestly it’s none of our business.

    Donna, get a clue! She is a great actress and an incredible singer!

    Bil Thompson replied

    To Donna ~ No offense but your comment is vicious and worthless.
    She is a very fine actress and it’s a shame her character couldn’t have
    evolved more. Her scenes with her daughter were excellent and the scene
    where she told Paige goodbye for the last time was beautifully acted.
    What we DON’T NEED are ignorant remarks from people like you.

    Helen replied

    Yes Donna, kassie has lots of money. Her net worth is 4 million dollars. Her singing is very bad. No hits at all. I have to say, her acting is very good at times.

    Days can make it right for Kassie, and bring back Eve for late next fall.

    I sure hope Kassie puts her hat in the supporting actress category.

    Besides killing off Will & thus ending the gay storyline, the firing of Kassie as Eve…was also, uncalled for!!! Two great mistakes made by DAYS last year.

    @ damien, as gorgeous as Greg is… I’m totally okay with that move. the story-lines for Eric have run it’s course, when he was raped by Kristen and the video played at Kristen and Brady’s “wedding”, that began the end of Eric. Eric will return someday, probably with Jensen or a new actor resuming the role.

    Andy replied

    Greg needed to go, his character got really boring.

    I am soon sad to see her go. I was hoping DAYS would see the error of their ways with this one. GH wold be a great new home for her as well…. I really would like to see her back on screen again…NOT on CBS cause I don’t watch either of their shows and will not start.

    at the very least… to assuage fan outcry

    Kassie DePaiva brought intelligence to this show… her chemistry with Justin and Eduardo is through the roof

    I’m with @Jeremy… bring her back late fall… as a new character… or as Eve

    this lady belongs on DAYS

    Ken Corday ! do the right thing

    Reply

    Jeremy replied

    @ Patrick, you’re on it…Kassie does belong on DAYS, I’d prefer Eve returning in the fall, with Kassie, but definitely not a new character for her. Ken Corday does need to do the right thing, and bring KASSIE back as Eve, and re-invent the gay story-line, and bring Paul back into the mix, and recast Sonny, and maybe let’s see Paul actually date some new players in Salem, until a new Sonny returns home. I think it would be healthy for Paul to date and see what that brings to the character, right now Paul is dud. Hope Ken realizes letting Kassie go and allowing the gay story-line to fully fade away are huge errors to be remedied!!!

    Andy replied

    Bring Charlotte Ross back, other wise no no.

    Phil replied

    Kassie is much better actress than Charlotte, who was not available to return as Eve!

    Unfortunately she was yet another casualty of the change in writers back in August. I am certain the previous writers had long term plans for Eve, but when they were let go they changed direction and as a result is this big shake up in cast members that always happens when a new writers comes on board.

    I just hope they don’t kill Eve off– if they do then someone should have the writers mental health checked, because if you are so obsessed with death and dying that is the only story that comes out of you, perhaps it is time to seek professional help.

    Reply

    Bil Thompson replied

    I hate to see her go, and I agree I hope they come up with something more original than killing her off, that’s getting absurd on this show.
    Maybe they could have her leaving Salem in search of employment in California as a vocal teacher or something along those lines. At least then, the door might be open for her character to return.
    I also agree with you Mary that when the “new writers” came in, they really changed things rather abruptly including the gay characters which are now, somehow or other, no where to be found. What purpose does Paul serve now other than being a male model for that stupid Basic Black company -

    Charlotte Ross. the original Eve was the best actress. Kassie Depaiva was wonderful as Blair Kramer on OLTL, but I did not like her as Eve. Towards the end, when her daughter Paige got murdered. I warmed up to Eve Donovan. The scenes were terrific. when Eve broke down and cried her guts out. I really hope she gets nominated for a Daytime emmy and wins it.

    Kassie is a tremendous actress and did a wonderful job with what she was given by Days. Unfortunately, they painted the character into a corner with the obsession with Jennifer, Paige and JJ. Eve could be redeemed if they had developed her relationship with Justin and involved her with Theresa’s design business. But, TPTB aren’t that far sighted. A waste of Kassie’s wonderful talent and many potentially great story lines missed by the viewers.

    Thank you Kassie for your tremendous work and I want to see you again and again and again and ……………

    I love Kassie, Ces. But, I really did not take to Eve. I actually agree with you. It’s like everything else. We develop certain ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’ for characters and it stays with us. She will always be Blair to me….just as Michelle will always be Phyllis.
    However, as much as I love Kassie, Eve was not the right role for her; not because of her performance, but because of her role….pathetic. I think she was ‘done wrong’, as so many others.
    From what I am reading on these posts, Kassie was no replacement for Charlotte. Of course, I did not ‘know’ that Eve. But, I used to watch NYPD Blue, when gorgeous and oh, so talented Ms Ross played Detective Connie McDowell.

    Ces replied

    I always respect your opinion CeeCee. I didn’t mind Kassie as Blair, she did a fine job with that role, she just didn’t play Eve like I remember Eve. I was a huge Eve & Nick fan so I cringed watching Kassie *trying* to portray this character, twang and all. It never worked for me and obviously it didn’t work for Days either or they would have kept her around.
    Some actors just can’t take over certain roles; especially ones that leave a mark with fans. Eve was troubled, a troublemaker, vulnerable, vixen and sex kitten all at the same time. Kassie just didn’t have IT.
    So long.

    CeeCee replied

    @Ces.
    I completely agree, my friend. That’s why I have always maintained how miscast Kassie was, regardless how a good actress she is.

    Hi, there.
    You know, 4ever, that you are one of the ‘friends’ on these boards that I respect very much…..and, always trust your word when it comes to Days, especially. I sense how much you love the soap…LOL …
    I LOOOOVE Kassie. I have sung her praises as all along. Her performance as a grieving mother was the best I have ever seen, and then some. I always maintained that the actress was demeaned by having been given such a role. She killed the role, yes……but, as many others, such as Archer and Easton, she was the means to an end. That’s show biz, I guess.
    However, regardless of what any one of us may think/feel….none of us can deny the fact that she deserves the Emmy, this year. Later, my friend.

    Kassie is an excellent actor, and like her loads. She needed to play a different charcater, and different storylines. I have not seen her more recent performances in the aftermath of Paige’s death, but I am sure she was great. She is very talented and strong, but for most of her time on the show she was kept in a box and needed a different role. I wish her all the best.

    If Charlotte Ross were to step back into the role of Eve, newer viewers would see how jarring the differences are between Kassie’s Eve and Charlotte’s Eve, especially with writers who I believe could do Eve justice!

    Kassie is an exceptional actress, but her Eve is not the Eve I knew.

    COME BACK, CHARLOTTE!

    I can’t believe we have all these people screaming for an actress that last played the role over 15 years ago. This is why Days has flatlined in the ratings and not risen to the top again. Die hard fans who can’t recognize the 80[s and 90′s ended long ago. They want the world to be just as it was back in the day with no changes. Charlotte Ross is nearly 50 years old now. She is not the fresh faced teen we first saw on the show. Kassie de Pavia can act rings around Charlotte Ross and I say this as a person who loathed her character on One Life to Live. Ms. Depavia is one talented lady and her leaving Days is that shows loss.

    Charlotte is a great actress. It’s been 25 years since she was on DAYS. She’ll turn 48 tomorrow. She is the original Eve.

    Kassie’s great, but the previous writers did not do her any favors.

    DAYS has not flatlined in the ratings!

    Charlotte Ross was, is and always will be beautiful!!!!!

    I like Kassie and wish her luck. After killing off Paige, Eve was left with basically no story. She rarely sees Theresa. It’s a shame (her lack of story) especially with her ex in town. I hope she’s hitting him up for all his back child support.

  28. TRAVIS T THOMAS says:

    I think for those saying Kassie was miscast. The true blame needs to be put on the writers. Even if Charlotte was playing the role, Eve was still written as being pathetic. And Days proved once again that great characters can NEVER come home again. How many amazing characters from the past (ever portrayed by the original actors) have come back to only be totally wrecked by the writing teams.

    I still put the blame on 1 persons shoulders and thats Ken Corday. Im sorry but how many times can he do those stupid plans to save Days. I feel like every 2-4 years he starts up this Campaign and nothing gets better. Its time for him to become a Sr. Exec Producer and hire an incredible Exec producer to come in and steer this ship the right course. But who???

    Out of all of the soaps on air, none of them compare to the greatness that they were 20 yrs ago. Daytime has given up. They never promote their own shows. Primetime commercials are played during the day, but the opposite doesnt happen. There has been no interest in finding the next great Daytime writer. The same writers are just recycled. The Daytime Execs at every network have truly given up. Its like they are just coasting by. No one is trying to be inventive or groundbreaking.

    When is the last time a REAL Storyline with a beginning, middle, and end was presented. I feel like its just one plot, to the next plot line, to the next plot line. I still think about the YR aids storyline, or GH and Monica’s breast cancer storyline, Robin & Stone’s love story, Nick and Sharon’s love story, Carrie and Austin’s love story, and BB’s original Caroline/Ridge/Brooke/Taylor epic story. Where is that type of Storytelling. Storytelling that actually goes somewhere. I still remember as a kid being glued to the screen when Stephanie lived on Skid Row. There were all these fun things happening, while also learning stuff at the same time.

    I truly just see most soaps as Plot lines, because there is no true storytelling going on. So many missed opportunities. Sharon’s bipolar SL could have been something of true value, but it became a cray cray joke instead of being handled with care. GH could have made the Franco/Scott SL about Father and sons truly trying to get to know each other, but instead it just became a joke. I mean has Franco been told his grandparents live in PC, or that his sister is out there. Multi-generational Storytellng is dead. And Im about to give up, because nothing seems to change in this genre. Im tired of Mask being ripped off, dopplegangers, or brainwashing & microchips, or Victor’s who seem to have eyes EVERYWHERE and can buy off anyone, and never emotionally pays for ANYTHING. I want stories about Lust, Love, and Betrayal. Havent these writers watched a Dateline. They could learn a thing or two.

    This is a huge loss for DAYS. Kassie DePaiva is one of daytime’s true gems, and a die-hard advocate for the daytime genre. She’s a class act and a phenomenal actress, who has a real presence on screen and whose character had loads of potential. I’ve liked Eve from the beginning, mostly because of Kassie, and since Paige’s death, I’ve warmed up to her even more. It’s a huge shame that she’s being let go now, especially when she had a possible future with Justin and Eduardo just came to town.

    Some people believe she was miscast as Eve, but the real problem here wasn’t the character, it was the writing. Just like with Melissa Archer as Serena, the character could have worked (and did in her last few days before being killed off) but the writing at the beginning of her stint was just awful. The same goes for Eve, she was an unlikable character at the beginning and that was because of the writing.

    Hopefully Kassie will find a new hope on daytime, maybe as Jenny Eckert on GH. She is a great actress and really deserves an Emmy this year for her phenomenal work. DAYS has just lost another great actor.

    I did not watch when Ross played Eve….and, I, for one have no clue whether Kassie was miscast or not. All I know is that the role was too undignified for the Kassie I was used to seeing….that is, Blair. Not that Blair was unblemished, but, she had a place in Llanview. I always felt, Kassie, as Eve, did not belong. That’s only my opinion….does not mean it is so. I wanted so much more for this beautiful, gifted actress. She was reduced to ‘playing’ footsie with a boy…her daughter’s boyfriend, no less. I honestly found that sort of a fall from grace. She deserved better than that.
    Regardless of such a disgusting role, I praise her acting….she made everyone else look like amateurs; especially her mourning scenes. I probably am boring you all for constantly repeating myself….Kassie deserves the Emmy.
    Furthermore, while Suzanne Rogers ( whom I love and respect) acted her anguish at the loss of her son excellently; her performance didn’t even come close to Kassie’s.

    PS.
    Please forgive me for sounding as if I can’t make up my mind about Kassie’s role. To me she was miscast….but I really do not know how true that is for others….as I said I have no clue. All I can do is go according to what you beautiful people say. You, the longtime fans are the only ones who can weed out the ‘good’ from the ‘bad’. Charlotte Ross is exceptionally talented, as well; and, she ‘made’ Eve. Eve is not my favorite character, but, who’s to say I would not have loved Charlotte’s Eve? Many actors are able to acclimate themselves in a new role and are simultaneously accepted by the viewer. By the same token, as we all know, some actors do not fulfill recast roles. It is damned if you do and damned if you don’t. But, we have all seen what happens to outstanding actors in the wrong roles. I have always felt that the part of Eve was a very demeaning role for Kassie.

    Nick replied

    I agree with you and Jimmy above. I cant help but feeling that the writers killed Paige off and are letting Kassie go in an attempt to “redeem” the degenerate character of JJ. As long as the mother and daughter were on the show, they were a reminder of JJ’s affair and bad character. With them out of the way, the writers are hoping that viewers can forget that storyline and embrace the former drug dealer as a crusading cop and model boyfriend for Gaby. They even had JJ morally denouncing Chad to Abby the other day, which was absurd given his own history.

    CeeCee replied

    @Nick.
    Right on!!!! I have never liked JJ and never will. You are so en pointe; hats off to you, Nick for putting some logic into this. Suddenly this spoiled Horton brat-kid with a passel of crimes and mischief in his ‘resume’ is a shining star? Bad-mouthing Chad? Yeah, I know…that’s the Hortons’ delusional, pristine reputation coming to the fore. You surely call it, Nick!
