Rachel Melvin Addresses Days of Our Lives Exit, Rumors

at . Comments

Rachel Melvin is leaving Days of Our Lives.

Why? That's exactly what the actress wants to make clear to her fans.

"I have to admit that I'm kind of disappointed in some of the rumors I've been hearing in regards to my decision to leave," Melvin wrote on her official website. "People have gone so far as to speculate that I'm leaving because I 'wasn't getting my way' with storylines, or that I was 'disappointed with the way the show was going.'"

The actress continued:

"I understand our show has had to sacrifice many things and has been forced to take tremendous amounts of cutbacks, which have greatly altered the way we operate. But to clear the air about the other rumor, my leaving has nothing to do with the current status of the show or my current limited amount of airtime."

Meanwhile, Days of Our Lives Executive Producer Ken Corday said: "We're not recasting the character," but noted that "the door is open any time" if Melvin ever wants to return.

I've been watching Days Of Our Lives for a very long time. What is going on? Everyone seems to be leaving but the bad ones keep staying. (Nicole, Kate etc.) I don't know if I am going to still look at DOOL anymore. All the bad ones seem to get away with everything. I know it is a soap opera but this is ridiculour.
