Alison Sweeney leaving 'Days of Our Lives,' says Sami Brady 'probably deserves' 'Breaking Bad'-style ending

After 21 years playing the sometimes-villainous, sometimes-heroic Sami Brady on "Days of Our Lives," "Biggest Loser" host Alison Sweeney tells "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that it's time to say goodbye.

"I decided that it's going to be my last year with the show," says Sweeney. " ... I've been on 'Days of Our Lives' since I was 16 years old and I have never had more than a two-week vacation in that whole time. I mean, it's so awesome. I love Sami, I love Salem, I love my job, I love daytime, I love the fans, I love everything about it."

"[But] my daughter just turned five and my son is nine and I just want to be with them and enjoy my last year," Sweeney continues. "I'm going to be on 'Days' all this year. ... We don't have a specific time yet [for when I'm leaving], but I'm going to be on all this year and we'll see what happens."

As for the ending, Sweeney says that while she thinks it would be awesome to have "some kind of happy ending," she also thinks Sami "probably deserves some sort of very twisted, like 'Breaking Bad' ending."

"Well, she's caused a lot of people a lot of problems," says Sweeney. " ... Sami has certainly caused her fair share of drama over the last 21 years."

How do you think Sami should be sent off, "Days of Our Lives" fans?

SOD Interview Summary:

The new Soap Digest features an interview with Ali Sweeney. Ali says that she's thought about leaving for a long time, since it's exhausting to do two jobs. She says that it's "time for me to make some changes and try something new away from Salem." She wants to take a break from the intensity of Days. SOD asked her if she'd go back to direct, and she said yes, she would and she hopes they ask her. She wants to spend more time with her kids as well.

She says she knew for sure in November that she was leaving, so she told Ken Corday then. She praises Corday for his management style and how he handled the conversation. He told her the door is always open for her return.

She will finish taping at the end of May, but she will be on for almost all of 2014. Last of all, she thanks the fans and hopes they understand her decision.

Check out the latest Digest for many more details in this five page article!

So she's leaving, but she's not really leaving....at least not yet?! huh?!

(& for the record, Ali, you're not the only person sad you didn't get more than 2 weeks of vacation at a time. Maybe if Sami had gotten backburned like every other character, there would've been longer vacations.)

She said this will be her last year. I can't wait! Please let it be your last year or if you come back then come back in 10 years.

Earlier in the daily thread I said that I couldn't imagine what would ever make me watch this show regularly again. I now know the answer to that question.

Aw, I'll miss Sami. Sure she's annoying a lot of this time, but I usually find her entertaining.

Good luck to AS.

Anyway, if she's on "all this year", sounds like this year probably extends past September.

"end of year" as in December? That would have Sami airing until May Sweeps of 2015!

I got to thinking. If she's talking about staying until the end of the year & then seeing what happens, then she must (at the very least) be under the assumption that Days is getting renewed.
