It is Soap Dish time again my friends and this week I am dishing all about the news that Renee Jones has quit Days Of Our Lives. I have to warn you there is a couple of semi spoiler alerts below so beware of that as you continue to read.
This week Days fans learned that Lexie Carver was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Turns out in real life Renee Jones, who has played Lexie since the role was originated back in 1993, has decided to exit the show and this time for good. Not to give too much away regarding the storyline but Days has said this will be a storyline that fans can’t miss. If I had to guess I would say Lexie won’t survive the brain tumor and from what I have read it is going to be heartbreaking.
I will admit I was pretty shocked when I learned that Jones was leaving the show to well, give retirement a try. Yep she isn’t going to another show or wants to try her hand in the movies or primetime, she is getting out of the business. In fact some sources are quoting that the very private actress will be getting back to her roots, which includes life on a farm perhaps.
As an avid Days fan I have watched Renee portray Lexie from the beginning and she is freaking awesome. She will be missed that is for sure. For those of you wondering if the actress will change her mind and come back or not leave, according to a recent TV Guide interview with Jones that is unlikely and not just on her end but from what the show does regarding her exit. However this is the soap world so anything can happen.
Renee Jones is leaving the role of Lexie Carver. It is the end of an era but I wish Jones all the best in the next chapter of her life.
