Eileen Davidson is leaving “Days of Our Lives,” in a move that has stunned many “DOOL” fans. Though there is speculation swirling regarding her exit, Davidson tried to settle down the buzz via her Twitter page on July 31. Fans are disappointed she is leaving the show once again, but of course send her their full support.
Davidson tweeted, “You’re all so awesome! I didn’t get fired. My family is fine. Thanks for your love and support! Xoxoxo” Soap Opera Digest shares that Eileen Davidson’s “Days of Our Lives” role wrapped up on July 16. However, fans don’t have to grab the tissues for her farewell quite yet. The show tapes so far ahead that Kristen will remain on-screen until the end of the year.
Rumors have swirled about why Davidson is leaving, with many fans worried something is wrong. Executive Producer Ken Corday says that she’s not leaving to do another show, and the door is open for her return. Of course this wouldn’t be the first time Davidson left “DOOL” and later returned. He indicated that “The official word there is that Eileen Davidson is leaving the show to take some time out with her family.”
Corday acknowledges that Davidson’s return to the role of Kristen was “the first shot in the arm we needed.” Now that “Days” has brought some viewers back to the fold, will they stick around without Davidson there? The show certainly hopes so, and they’ll surely do whatever they can do make it happen. What do you think of Eileen Davidson’s exit from “Days of Our Lives”? How would you like to see Kristen DiMera exit the canvas?
