On Friday, January 24, NBC's "Days of our Lives" put rumors to rest when it officially announced that former "One Life to Live" actress Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair Cramer) would be joining its cast in the contract role of Eve Donovan, a role which was originated by actress Charlotte Ross, who congratulated DePaiva on signing onto "DAYS" on Twitter.

Shortly after word broke that Kassie DePaiva would be taking on the role of Eve Donovan on NBC's "Days of our Lives" later this summer, originator Charlotte Ross took to Twitter to congratulate the former "One Life to Live" actress on snagging the part and shared some of her own fondest memories of the character. Ross also announced she'll be appearing in a future episode(s) of ABC's "Nashville."

After fans began speculating on her possibly joining a soap following a January 8 posting on her website, which said, "Good things are ahead this year and I hope to have more to report very soon," NBC's "Days of our Lives" made it official: Soap veteran actress Kassie DePaiva is joining the series in the contract role of Eve Donovan (originated by Charlotte Ross).

“Days of our Lives” may be losing actress, Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) later this year, but an equally powerhouse actress may be swooping into Salem: Former “One Life to Live” actress Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair Cramer)!

Two years ago today the final television broadcast of "One Life to Live" aired on ABC. While the show would go on to have an additional forty episodes in 2013 via Prospect Park's The OnLine Network, this day marks the end of a 43 year run on ABC.

It’s a day that almost never came, but thanks to the team at Prospect Park, “One Life to Live” is celebrating its 45th anniversary on Monday, July 15. In honor of the sudser’s big milestone, iconic actresses Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord) and Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) spoke with reporters about their favorite memories, proudest moments and surprisingly awkward first days.

On Sunday, June 16, during “The 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards,” Kristen Alderson took home the Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Starr Manning on "General Hospital."

As exclusively reported by Soap Opera Network in early April, Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva) wow'd the Shelter crowd with song on The OnLine Network's "One Life to Live" on the Thursday, May 30 episode as Llanview experienced a peculiar blackout. As everything seemed to be going wrong, Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) insisted that Blair entertain the crowd until the power was restored.

When "One Life to Live" went off the air just over a year ago it was my favorite daily drama and it had been for quite some time. So, while the show’s ratings were rising, it was quite a shock to learn it had been canceled in 2011. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous with the series coming back, but this time without executive producer Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati.

As evidenced by the first episode of "One Life to Live," life in Llanview has continued long after the soap ended its ABC run in January 2012. No, we don't mean that the soap has jumped ahead five years as sister soap "All My Children" has done in order to progress its storylines, we mean characters didn't just walk upstairs to the attic and kept silent and still while the millions of fans mourned their reported last breaths. Scheduled to re-launch on Monday, April 29 via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, the soap is about to take things higher with the opening of Blair's new night club, Shelter, as the backdrop to getting things moving once more.
