Per our friends at Soaps In Depth, DePaiva is joining the NBC sudser as onetime teen hooker Eve Donovan, aka Theresa’s half-sister.

Ross had tweeted in early December that she met with Days executive producer Greg Meng and headwriter Christopher Whitesell about a possible encore, but ultimately, she claimed this week, she opted for other opportunities, including Nashville and VH1′s Hit the Floor.

  • Good for Kassie and DAYS! She is a good actress but they need to give her hair extensions and vamp her up a bit like she was in her early days on OLTL. She needs to change that southern belle haircut that she had as blair those last few years so we can picture her as someone else.

  • That’s great for Kassie and since the character of Eve hasn’t been on the show for a very long time the fans might might be more accepting of Kassie.Plus no one can say Charlotte Ross wasn’t approached about coming back to the show.

  • She is way too old. She is only 6 years youngber than her TV dad. She would be better off as his new lover.

  • While she deserves better, I am happy for her. But reading this just makes me realize that I still miss Llanview. :(
