Although it had been rumored for several weeks, actress has confirmed on her official website that she has indeed been let go from NBC’s “Days of our Lives” after portraying Eve Donovan on the daytime soap for more than a year.

“As the sand runs out of my hourglass over at Days… I have no regrets. I had a truly remarkable experience there. From the beginning as Eve showed up in town and throughout her bumpy ride through Salem it has all been a good time for me. I got to work with people that I have admired for many years,” wrote DePaiva on her official website. “I especially want to thank , True OBrien, , , , and . They each helped me find the ‘real’ Eve. It saddens me to have been let go from the show just as Eve was finally finding her footing… But that is the way the Soap business goes. Characters come and go just as actors, writers, and producers. Some we love… Some we hate… But fortunately for all of us the stories still go on. Keep watching and here’s to 50 more years of Days of our Lives!!!”

Look for DePaiva to remain on the canvas for several more months as production is currently ahead by six months from what is seen on air.

(September 20, 2015) I cannot thank you guys enough for all the lovely comments regarding these last three weeks of airshows on Days. As I stated in a tweet about 5 1/2 months ago these were truly some of the most challenging and fulfilling scenes in my daytime career. Eve’s loss was life changing and forced me to go to a very dark place that no one ever wants to go to in “real life”. Throughout my day time span I have been fortunate enough to participate in some really wonderful stories with truly remarkable actors. I have the highest respect for the genre of which I am fortunate enough to be a part of. I strive for excellence and truth in every scene and though most are far from perfect it gives me great satisfaction in my work. I am fueled by a sincere appreciation for the opportunity to make a difference. The fans deserve the best that I can give to their shows they are so devoted to. The writers deserve the best I can bring to give justice to their words. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to work in daytime!

As the sand runs out of my hourglass over at Days… I have no regrets. I had a truly remarkable experience there. From the beginning as Eve showed up in town and throughout her bumpy ride through Salem it has all been a good time for me. I got to work with people that I have admired for many years. I especially want to thank Melissa Reeves, True OBrien, Casey Moss, Jen Lilley, Wally Kurth, and A Martinez. They each helped me find the “real” Eve. It saddens me to have been let go from the show just as Eve was finally finding her footing… But that is the way the Soap business goes. Characters come and go just as actors, writers, and producers. Some we love… Some we hate… But fortunately for all of us the stories still go on. Keep watching and here’s to 50 more years of Days of our Lives!!!

Until next time… Kassie
