Though “Days of our Lives’” Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker) and Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady Black, “DAYS;” ex-Rick Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) managed to keep recent details regarding their marriage mostly under wraps, the cat is finally out of the bag: The couple is no longer together.
Soap Opera Digest reports that the pair, who met while filming “DAYS” and later tied the knot in 2002, have officially divorced. “In response to our ongoing inquiries, we would like to announce that with respect to our privacy, we quietly separated awhile ago and are officially divorced,” the couple said in a joint statement. “We continue to remain great friends and loving parents to our daughter [Isabella, 4].”
Former daytime actor Kyle Lowder (ex-Rick Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Brady Black, “Days of our Lives”) is shedding the super-tight 80s leather pants and sexy, shaggy long hair he’s been sporting for the Las Vegas production of “Rock of Ages” and trading them in for a — wait for it — coat! That’s right, folks: The actor is walking away from the 80s rock show in which he portrayed rockstar Stacee Jaxx to play the title lead in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famous musical, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
“Days of our Lives’” Arianne Zucker may have received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in this year’s Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards race, but she’s not taking all of the credit. “I’m so proud of all of us,” she says of her nomination as well as the show’s 17 other Emmy nods. “We’re an ensemble cast and crew. There’s no “I” in this team. I had Shawn Christian [Daniel Jonas] and Missy [Reeves, Jennifer Horton], almost everybody in my scenes, so I didn’t do it alone. So that’s what’s pretty cool. Everybody helped lift me up.”
