    I thought she was leaving Days to spend more time with her family. Obviously not. She was with Days for 20 years. As a fan of hers for 20 years, I feel like I was played. All she had to say was she wanted to try new things. To say she wanted to spend time with her family was not accurate. I am sure this directing thing has been in the works for a long time.

    I would also think directing would take up more of her time than acting did. Actors get time off as their storylines rotate, or at least that's what I read.

    I told everyone she was going to another soap days recast her and ej and let ej take her down for once I think ej and Abigail could have been another jack and Jennifer legendary couple but let us see where days goes with this Abigail could take the place bad girl in salem I like Allison Sweeney but she lied plan and simple your fans at days were loyal I think it is because she didn't have all of days attention and she didn't like it and as for the biggest loser what is wrong with being full sized woman I am full sized and I am happy with myself don't judge Allison people are not always perfect not even you I like you but I think you should hear this if you even read it but other people will and I hope they understand when I say you should have told the truth a lie is a lie no matter how you put it I was a ejami fan but now I am a ejabby fan and always a days fan good work ken Corday you are an unique person your fan always since 1978

    I think people are upset because she said she was leaving to spend more time with family and that being on two shows was too much. Clearly, she lied. It doesn't mean we're not happy for her and wish her success.

    Sorry to see both Sami and E.J leaving.But the T V soaps are becoming a thing of the past anyhow.So you can't expect them to last for as many years into the future, as long in years as they have ran up to now..TV reality shows seem to have replaced the soaps. And remember, Days of O.Ls has been threatened to end about 3 years back,so we are lucky that it is still running,and haven't gone the route of a few other soaps,like "As The World Turns",and others.As for DOOLs,I don't see as much interest in the drama of the other actors on the show,as I have with Sami and EJ,they just set the bar too high for the other drama to match.So knowing that Sami and EJ's parts are ending in a month or so,I really don't watch it as much as I used to,noro taping it when I wasn't home to watch.But DOOLs will likely end altogether soon,so best to unhook yourself of these soaps anyway.
