Days of Our Lives' Kassie DePaiva Confirms Ouster: 'It Saddens Me'

Daytime-TV vet Kassie DePaiva has confirmed not just her exit from Days of Our Lives, but that the decision was not hers to make.

On Sunday morning — days after SerialScoop.com broke the news of her exit — DePaiva thanked fans, via her official website, for the kudos she has received for the past few weeks of storyline (“Eve’s loss … forced me to go to a very dark place that no one ever wants to go to in ‘real life,'” she shared).

The two-time Daytime Emmy nominee (for her run as One Life to Live‘s Blair) then went on to affirm that, as she put it, the sand in her hourglass was running out at Days.

“I have no regrets. I had a truly remarkable experience there,” she wrote. “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.”

DePaiva, who made her Days debut in June 2014 (in the role previously played by Arrow‘s Charlotte Ross), is expected to appear on screen for several more months due to the sudser’s famously large lead time.

SerialScoop.com says DePaiva’s exit storyline will not tie into the current serial killer mystery.
