I heard that rumor about Chelsea being recast also but only from one source. What I've also heard is that Days is still looking for a 20-ish woman and I suppose that is why the rumor got started....assuming, because I've also heard it's to replace Shayna as Stephanie. I think the show needs that woman Shawn is supposed to get involved with and it also needs the surrogate for Philip and Mimi's baby. Rachel is an excellent actress so she could also have received an offer too good to refuse, but that would get messy I'd think. It will be interesting to see how this comes out.
