NBC soap fans wonder is Stacy Haiduk leaving Days of our Lives now that Kristen DiMera‘s sentenced to prison. Things certainly don’t look good for the semi-reformed schemer, but is Kristen out at DOOL? Here’s the latest on her status at the sudser.
Days of our Lives Comings & Goings: Will Kristen DiMera Leave?
DOOL fans have good cause to worry about Kristen DiMera’s fate on the NBC sudsfest. This week, Kristen revealed to Lani Price (Sal Stowers) she got a five-year prison sentence with the chance of parole in two years. That certainly doesn’t sound promising for Kristen.
Plus, Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) complained on Days of our Lives to Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) about losing Kristen. He said their daughter Rachel would miss years of her life while Kristen DiMera’s behind bars. And he blamed Eli for helping make it happen.
So, will Days of our Lives comings and goings find a way to keep Kristen DiMera on-screen, or is Stacy Haiduk down at the soap? As of now, she’s got a few more tearful goodbyes left before she’s packed off to prison. If nothing changes, it sure looks like Kristen’s leaving DOOL.
Will DOOL Twist Fate to Keep Stacy Haiduk – What’s Her Status?
First, here’s the latest we know on Stacy’s contract status at Days of our Lives. She was confirmed to be on contract in May 2019, but it looks like it was a one-year deal. Because in May 2020, it came out that DOOL axed her. Then, Kristen DiMera fled with their child.
Eventually, Days of our Lives changed course, and Brady took off to be with her. Then, she came back, which might have been to set the stage for a long-term exit. To date, it appears Stacy Haiduk’s status with DOOL is recurring.
However, Eli might intervene in her verdict to avoid Lani’s wrath on Days of our Lives. But that seems a long shot since Brady couldn’t stop the verdict. Plus, Kristen pleaded guilty, so that’s hard. Unless DOOL takes another leap forward in time, it seems hopeless.
Is Kristen DiMera Leaving Days of our Lives? Stacy Haiduk Could Come Back
What seems the likely outcome on DOOL is that Brady says goodbye to Kristen DiMera since their storyline wrapped pretty neatly. But that doesn’t mean Stacy Haiduk is gone for good from the NBC daytime drama.
As Days of our Lives fans know, there’s a revolving door of cast in and out all the time. So, Kristen seems destined for the back-burner for now. They can always have Brady visit her at Statesville Prison. Then, the state could parole her at any time.
So, we’d expect to see Stacy Haiduk head out the door at Days of our Lives. But just as dead is rarely dead in Salem – and exit is rarely final either. Watch for more Kristen as storylines demand. Brace yourself for Kristen DiMera’s farewell soon, but never say never on DOOL.
