Days Star Fired!?!

Fan favorite Renee Jones ("Lexie Carver" of Days of Our Lives) has been let go. The dismissal is particularly surprising as it comes as Lexie's family - the DiMeras - is getting increased air time on the NBC soap. "Renee is still taping here at Days," a show spokesperson stated. "Unfortunately, I do not have any further information at this time."

This is a huge surprise, storyline-wise, but not budget-wise. It's no secret that the show has been struggling with money concerns, and characters have been dropping left and right. I had hoped that the firings had reached a plateau, and that we wouldn't have to bid adieu to anymore of our favorites.

Hopefully Renee's firing will be the last for a while. Pretty soon, there will be no one left!

A final airdate for Renee has yet to be announced.
