Another “DAYS” bombshell has dropped. Today, Soap Opera Digest is reporting Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans (who have played Patch and Kayla on and off for over several decades) have been “let-go” by the show. This follows directly on the heels of another long time vet, Thaao Penghlis exit. He had been given his walking papers, just the other week! It all seemed likely, however, that these long time stars were sent packing, considering the shows obivous move to a younger core cast. More details forthcoming on this breaking story!
