In light of all the reports that were released, can you shed some light on your Days of Our Lives exit and what transpired?
Nichols: I have seen and heard accounts that say I chose to leave for money and/or storyline purposes. That isn’t true. While I have made comments about my disappointment in the lack of story, I have made clear that I accepted what was offered. Because at the end of the day, I want to be there. I love my family at Days of Our Lives. Cast and crew, upstairs, downstairs, on set, makeup and hair, I have been missing you and hope to see you all again.
I was hurt by the way things played out, but my reps were told I’d be back in 4-12 weeks. We are way past that so, for now, I am moving on.
