256 April 2nd, 2012 Renee Jones Quits Days of our Lives! Lexie to Exit in Heartbreaking Story in June!

Courtesy/NBC

One of the nicest and least-Hollywood type performers we know, Renee Jones (Lexie Carver) of Days of our Lives has decided after twenty years to quit the NBC soap!

Citing that her passion for acting is just not there anymore and that she would like to concentrate on other aspects of her life, including that she would love to do charity work, especially something along the lines of helping sick children, Renee gave the exclusive to TV Guide which also teases how the DAYS exec will deal with Renee’s departure and on paper this looks like we may need to prepare for some five-hankie episodes!  Here are a few excerpts!

Renee on Lexie finding out that she has an inoperable train tumor and how that figures into her exit storyline:  “When I broke it to [the Days execs] about my decision to leave it was very harmonious. I said, “Guys, it’s been amazing and I appreciate all that Days has done for me, but I am ready to go.” They were very understanding and really wanted to honor my character with a great exit story and asked if I would be opposed to having her die. I said, “Not at all. But I don’t want to be in a coffin.” And I had one other stipulation. I didn’t want a horrible cancer death. I was worried about my mother because my sister died of cancer a few years ago and my mom watches the show religiously and I didn’t want her to have to watch that. So they came up with the idea of a brain tumor. There will be lots of crying, lots of goodbyes but it will be very beautiful. The writers have done a fabulous job.”

Renee on if she thinks the writers and the producers will actually leave Lexie truly dead!: “That’s what I said [to the execs]! How will we know Lexie’s really gone? Practically everyone in Salem has come back from the dead! They said, “We will do something that guarantees it.” And they did. I can’t tell you what it is, but it is definitely the end for Lexie.”

What do you think about Renee’s decision to leave daytime?  And, the decision to kill Lexie? Let us know!

    She is one of my favorites & I don’t like this at all! I love Lexie (& Renee)-this will be horrible for Abe & Theo!!! Not to mention Stefano.

    Wow. I am stunned. She hasn’t had much of a real storyline in a long time. She finally had a little to do with the whole Abe cheating story. Can’t say I blame her for leaving though. So that is why Celeste is headed back.

    I have watched Days for many years. Lexie has always been one of my favorite characters. I will miss her but greatly respect her decision to do something different for “Renee” after so long. No coffin is right!! I’m guessing they will cremate her to keep her from coming back.
    Much, much luck to Renee!!
    PS: Days, please ditch Gina & Pawn.

    Sad that she is leaving, she is one of the best actresses on the show. Lexie is so beautiful and so likeable and will be missed. Feel bad that Abe and Lexie won’t be together anymore, they are the rare couple on the show that keeps getting back together like John and Marlena and Bo and Hope. Hopefully Abe will find a new love interest soon and keep having stories.

    I’m happy for the actress to do what she loves, but selfishly I hope she comes back in the near future. And hopefully the show would give her reason enough to come back ie good, long term storylines!!!

    I am happy she is leaving on her own accord. Other reports just said she was leaving and I was afraid she’d been fired. But it certainly sounds like she’s ready to take the leap. I for one am grateful for all the time she put into DAYS and wish her the best of luck as she transitions into her new chapter.

    There was another child of Stefano – Benjy?

    emaia replied

    Benjy died a few years ago I think.

    Bubba replied

    yes Benji was murdered by Andre Dimera 5 years ago and placed in the coffin in which Stefano was in when he faked his death

    Sandy replied

    I have been watching Days for years and I remember Stefano having a daughter that was in love with Bo. I think her name was Megan and she was killed by being electrocuted in a swimming pool. Does any one else remember this?

    G replied

    I believe Megan was electrocuted in a hot tub at a health club. She tried to kill Hope but she ended up dead. I remember because on a Friday they made it look like Hope was dead but then Monday they backed it way up and ended up with it being Megan.

    Phyllis replied

    Sandy, I have watched Days for many years as well, and yes, I remember Stephano’s daughter, Meagan. She was in love with Bo, beautiful, and as evil as Stephano!

    Best wishes to Renee Jones as she exits Days of Our Lives. She will be missed. If she ever decides to come back, the writers could create a brand new character for her. That might even spark her desire to act again.

    Deidre Hall never thought she would return to Days but she did. So never say never. But regardless, I wish nothing but the best for Renee and hopes she enjoys her retirement.

    My granma, her boyfriend and I are sad at this departure. Why not just recast Lexie? At least everyone will mourn her and have something to do other than love triangles. Maybe this will bring Chad back to his DiMera family. Poor Abe, just after they reunited. How will Theo deal with this, being autistic and all? Marlena and John and EJ’s kids will be so sad…Good luck Renee

    Recasting Lexie wouldn’t work well… Renee Jones has played the character far to well and for so many years that NOBODY else would be as well received in the role…. Recasting Lexie would be like recasting Hope or Marlena…..

    I will miss seeing Lexi in her white doctor’s jacket. Lexi is such a caring character. I believe that EJ will take it the hardest. Little Theo and Abe
    it just won’t be the same without Theo’s mommy around. I already have
    my hankie or two read. I have enjoyed watching Lexi all these years and
    I will miss her beautiful smile.
    All the best to Renee.

    I can honestly say I will no longer watch Days now that Renee is leaving. I only came back when I thought they would give her better stories, ie, a new love interest…now that I see that is not happening…dueces! They have had plenty opportunity to give Lexie a better storyline and add more diversity to the show! They have failed!! And now one of the best and best looking…is gone! Boo!

    I so much agree with you. Renee says she is leaving to have an active career in helping children, that sounds good but I’m just not buying it. I think she herself is disappointed in the roles they have chosen for her character over the years. She had a lot more ability and acting skills than what she did. Good luck Renee YOU deserve BETTER!!! Looking forward to seeing you show your true talent in another movie or show. I think that’s the route you should choose.

    I will miss Renee playing “Lexie.” I wish her luck with with her future endeavors. I think in time Renee will return to acting but not as a full-timer. Like all jobs, we get tired but then after a much needed break we get back into what we know best. She’s a great actress and shows passion when she’s acting. I’d like to see her do a show like “Missing.” Even though she looks too sweet to know how to fight, we’ve seen her playing a darker side before and it worked. She could be a action-packed star if she wanted too. Good Luck Renee!

    I’m not really sure what an inoperable train tumor is, but it sounds very, very serious. No wonder Lexie doesn’t make it.

    I believe it means when the tumor is in an area of the brain that the surgeon can’t get to or it’s just too far advanced to even try.

    I just hate the idea of the character of Lexie leaving the show..ESPECIALLY PERMANATELY !!!! As an African American, it’s been very refreshing to have such a constant and powerful black female lead character on such an iconic soap opera…. If she wants to leave, then let her leave but NOT in such a way that she can’t come back later on if she wants to…

    Reply

    Brila replied

    I agree, maybe she and Abe should go to Europe to find a cure which may take a year but Renee, what if you miss this and want to come back- you should have that option, I cant see Abe in the show without you so I have a feeling his character will be gone in the future. I am a white woman, but agree with Don there needs to be more strong African American characters in this show. More of a variety of all backgrounds, this new Asian doctor seems to be a first for DOOL.

    Lexi is one of the only really grounded characters on DOOL. She has brought a nurturing type of stability to the show, somewhat like Alice Horton in the fact that she truely cared for and found the best in everyone all of the time. I DVR the show everyday and watch it when I get home from work, and after just seeing a teaser about how serious her brain tumor is, I ran to the computer to get the scoop, and now I feel totally at a loss in reading that she is leaving. I don’t like this a bit, but wish her the best, but hope that she will return someday. Days will not be the same without her, I hope they bring in a new character with that nurturing touch, especially since Maggie Horton’s not as active as she once was. They will need a NON-DRAMA female to fill the awful void she will leave. Good Luck Renee!!!

    I just wanted to wish her well. I have enjoyed her on days since she joined the cast, and admire her reasons for leaving. You are an inspiration to everyone. Good luck on your new journey. I don’t think that Days will be the same.
    Thank you for your time on days.

    Reply

    Chris Tempesta replied

    The original Celeste was so much better. I hate to say it but I never liked Abe – too dramatic in his expressions in a way. Let’s see Theo as a teenager or something. Days needs a few humorous characters back — remember Euge/Calliope or Anna DiMera… I’m sure there were others I just can’t remember right now. Anyone?

    I am very sorry to hear she is leaving the show. Days does not have very much diversity on the show and Lexie and Abe representated a very real and positive family base.
    Even though she did have a few “infidilities”. She is one of the better actresses on the show which really helps to balance out all of the other actresses who most of the time are just really “witches” and only care about themselves. I wish they would not kill her off but instead keep the character alive just in case she decides to come back in a few years.

    This was NOT something I would have ever expected for Lexi! I was very upset when I tuned into Days after being away for two months………
    I was away with my 8 year old daughter who was JUST RECENTLY diagnosed with Glioma! (cancer of the brain stem) which is also inoperable!
    I am truely blown away by the relation, as I have watched this show since I was my daughters age with my Grandmother whom also passed from cancer!
    Needless to say the show is not worth me watching at the present time as I really don’t need to see Lexi pass from this!
    I hope that I can tune in again once this is over as I am an absolute fan!

    NO WAY Abe would remarry! He can have a “companion” after some time-but even that would be hard for him! He WORSHIPS Lexie. I can’t see him ever remarrying (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s just not Abe) I am so sad over this storyline. I LOVE LEXIE. Poor Theo.

However, this time I am compelled to write. I cannot imagine this show without Renee and although I understand and respect her decision to leave, I am baffled by the decision to let Lexie die. Please, please reconsider this decison, Days, before it is too late. Thanks for listening.

    I din’t believe Lexie’s character should. Her new found brother should come up with some alternative treatments in which they would have to leave town; that way it would leave it open for Abe and Lexie to have recurring roles once a repalcement is found. The characters have added some much to the diversity of Days.

    That’s a good Idea,Every time someone wants to come back after they died or were murdered, they have to come up with a stupid story on how they survived and its always dumb but we always accept it because we care for the character, to late now they can’t change the scripts .Her death will be sad.

    It will be extremely sad to see Lexi’s departure. It was great seeing that she could stand up and out for herself even though the name of her father is one of the most tarnished in the show. As someone mentioned earlier, it would have been nice if she could have left for treatment and then be recast by someone else in time to come. It would have also been heartfelt to see her new found brother, have the opportunity to work on and save his older sister’s life, that would have been great. The Lexi, Abe and Theo storyline is going to be very sad and heartbreaking to watch, because we already know that Theo suffers with his autism and to have to loose his mom. Please, Renee Jones, we understand yes that you want to do something else with your time but can you please reconsider leaving through death :)

    renee jones should not leave days of our lives for the simple fact that she seems to be one of the most humble actresses around and is well suited for the role. a new story line should be written to keep her on the show…like finding a cure for her tumor. this should be one of the most amazing comebacks in the history of days of our lives. my reason is i suffer from extremely bad headaches and after 10 different brain scans nothing can be found. this should be a dramatic, happy ending and keep her on the show.

    I don’t think that she should leave for good for the reasons that she might gain her passion for acting once again, after a few years just like some of the sports players do (basketball etc…). They should make her go away to another country for a few years.

    I am very sad to hear that the actress that has been playing Lexie Carver on Days of Our Lives for a long time is leaving. It is too bad that she will never be returning. I have tears already because my own mom is dying of cancer and so it scares me just to hear that word.

    I find it kind of odd that Renee said she didn’t want her character, Lexie, to die of cancer, yet this whole brain tumor thing is exactly like cancer because it is a malignant tumor that is inoperable. Might as well call it as Ms. Jones didn’t want it and that is, Lexie will die to cancer. Way to go DOOL writers.

    I know! I was wondering why no one else seemed to notice that. I remember reading in an interview, a few weeks ago that she didn’t want her character to die of cancer . I had to look it up online to see if the writers had some horrible vendetta against the actress or something.

I’d rather have Rafe with Nichole as a couple if he can’t be with Sami…. Though, I like the Sami and Lucas idea! I think it’s time for Samantha to calm down and realize, that she needs to be a better role model, for her kids especially William! William will realize how much his mother does love and there relationship will become stronger! Due to the facts that Samantha is going to stop being such a drama queen!

    I guess they have to have her die, because Abe still needs a role. If Lexi is gone for years, what would happen with Abe? They can’t have them both leave for treatment, because HE’S not leaving the show. If they leave it open for her to return, they’d have to come up with something for Abe, for years. Without another woman, he’d sure become a bore, unless he had some serious crisis. They could have her go away for treatment, and fall in love with someone else, and that would free up to have another love until …. until whatever will be.

    She always felt ‘in the shadows’ to me, on Days.

    Anyway, Renee has been a sweet, strong, stable character that while her role was rather boring, it did give a sweet stability. And she’s a beautiful woman, so it was nice seeing her. I wish her the best. Maybe she’d have more passion for acting, if she had a more exciting character. :-)

    (On another note, I got bored and stopped watching for over a year. I just came back last week. I think Vivian is a huge loss to Days.)

    I long for the days when Days was a Christian based show, showing the characters going to church, wearing crucifixes, talking about God. Then, it had to become like every other gay based show on t.v…..Glee, Smash…where the guys kiss guys. Its not like it used to be anymore, and I was going to quit watching it anyway. Maybe Lexi actually was upset about the way it was going too, and decided to leave. She’s smart. Get out before it becomes totally like every other immoral show on tv. My daughter used to watch it with me, and she’s 20. She thinks the gay story line is sick. Goodbye Lexi, and good for you to have the guts to leave. Hope, where is the crucifix you used to wear proudly? You all need to stand up to the story writer, and get that show back on track….it has stayed around longer than all of the others because of your fan base and the fact that you stayed true to family values.

She is beautiful, dripping with class and soooo sweet. It just won’t be the same for Abe and Theo. I know it is just a soap……but that’s what I love about these characters….you feel as though they are real. Lexie is always so gracious and kind. I don’t think it will be the same without her.

    I can remember back when that very first doctor came along and of course was an evil one. When Sammie; was forced by telling Lexi, that everything was A- okay for her. This was when she had that breast cancer- so, how could you people just think we all forgot about that one? It could not just up and go away- you people like just stopped talking about it after Sammie told her that lie. So, how could she have lived from that year to this year having cancer then?

    It is a sad thing though to see her leave the show- But, it is understandable on her reasons behind it. Working as a star it does take a lot of time out of your life and it makes it where you do not even have a life of your own. With her also working as a star on other programs it takes even more time out of her. I just want to say- she, has been the best and she will be missed…

    Im soo sad to see you leave. But understand how you want to see what else is out there. Thank you for all the wonderful days on the show . I’ve been watching since i was very lil with my mom. Youre such an awsome actor. Days will not be the same. God bless and take care.

    I hate to see Lexie go, especially with lil’ Theo being a special needs child. Why didn’t they just change Lexie? They do that all the time. We would have accepted that in time rather than have her to die! I feel so bad for Abe and lil Theo. I know she’ll always be the original Lexie but feel bad for Theo!! Just saying……

    Why wont you guys do flash backs of Lexie and Abe, Like you do with Bo hope Marlena etc. I think the new fans would like to see their origin. Let us see when they got married, some of their time together ect.
    Lexie is definitely one of my favorite characters on days.

    I understand after twenty years wanting to change her path. I’m just a loyal fan, thinking of herself. A person gets wrapped up into all these character’s and fall in love with them. Who doesnt love our Lexie! Our love and prayers go on with you in whatever you decide to do. Thank you for all the years!!

    I HAVE BEEN WATCHING DAYS SINCE IT BEGAN IN THE 60′S–I WAS ONLY 4YRS OLD BUT I WATCHED IT WITH MY MOM. THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS VCR OR DVD’S BACK THEN. BUT WHILE I WAS AT SCHOOL, I HAD A CASSETTE RECORDER AND MY MOM WOULD SET IT BY THE TV AND RECORD “DAYS” FOR ME AND I WOULD LISTEN TO IT AT NIGHT WHILE DOING DISHES OR MY HOMEWORK. SOME PEOPLE ARE ADDICTED TO DRUGS AND HARMFUL THINGS, I HAVE TO SAY I HAVE BEEN ADDICTED TO “DAYS” FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER. I REALLY HATE TO SEE LEXIE LEAVE, HER CHARACTER IS A STRONG PERSON, HARD TO SEE HER LEAVE THIS WAY. IS STEFANO REALLY GONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME OR WILL THE PHOENIX RISE AGAIN? I CAN REMEMBER SO MANY CHARACTERS THAT HAVE CAME AND GONE OVER THE YEARS—BOB AND MARY ANDERSON, GREG AND AMANDA PETERS, JULIE’S SON SCOTTY , WHEN DOUG HAD “DOUG’S PLACE” I LIKED THE CHARACTER OF REBECCA THAT WORKED THERE—I REALLY LOVED LIZ AND NEIL—-WHY DON’T ANY OF THESE PEOPLE EVER COME BACK TO VISIT THEIR LOVED ONES? I CAN GO ON AND ON AND ON WHEN IT COMES TO “DAYS” BUT I WON’T. THANKS RENEE FOR MANY YEARS OF LEXIE. I WILL MISS YOU. HOPE YOU SUCCEED IN WHATEVER ENDEAVORS YOU DECIDE TO PURSUE—-GOOD LUCK IN YOUR FUTURE—-DEVOTED FAN

    I hate the fact that Lexie is gone there are so few of the super couples left. All the young kids are there and they needed to keep the soap going. Abe and Lexie were great together if she needed a break they should of put it in and given her the option to come back rather then kill her. She will miss it and the fans will miss her.

    Why don’t they replace her character with another beautiful black woman, they’ve replaced other characters through the years I’ve been watching, almost so perfectly that you don’t see it happening. I feel sorry for Abe, what will he do now, of course there is Theo. Look at the changes they made for Bell, each one was perfect, but now she’s gone, I’d like to see her come back.

    Everyone has the right to say, I ‘ve had enough, or there is something else I want to do in my life. I am sadden to see Lexie go. I literally cried when she died. I enjoyed seeing her everyday. She was a wonderful actress, and her portrail of Lexie was so real. I will truellly miss her. I said when they anounced she had this tumor, if they kill Lexie off I would just quit watching. Then I read melanie and Boe, well it seems they are tearing up the show. After watching for more than 20 years I just might make my exit also, just quit watching.

    I truly hated to see Lexie die on June 21, 2012, but I read that she wanted to go.
    It will not be the same because she left a small child/husband behind and she was such
    an integral part of the soap. Please employ some more blacks because the show has so few. I also hated to see Stefano leave and Melanie also. Your soap will not be
    the same. Please don’t lose anymore characters.

    I was very upset and thought that a cure would be found and Lexie would stay on the show. Death is so final and I feel Lexie should have been able to come back at some point and not be an angel or some kind of ghost. I also was thinking she would confess to killing Stefano herself because of all the thing he has done before she died and that could have been played up. Anyway, I did not want to see her die off the show forever!

    The entire storyline has been done well. I’ve watched since Julie was caught shoplifting (not telling how many years that has been!). I would have preferred to leave E. J. as Stefano’s true son. Didn’t like the Kate /divorce, either. But Lexie’s death has been well done!

    I love Days of Our Lives. I just hate that so many are leaving the show. There are some that needs to go, just taking up space on the show. I read somewhere that Renee ask for her character to die. I can’t really blame her, she was the person that brought so much life to the character that it would be hard to watch someone else play the character. The storyline was played so wonderfully by everyone! She will be missed tremendously.

    You will be missed. And I’ve also noticed the storyline of Abe and Kayla are starting to get closer. I’m not sure Kayla is the right character for Abe . I just cannot see them as a couple. Sure hope Days thinks this one through”!! They should introduce a new character for Abe to become his love interest.
