    well, if renee (aka lexie) is retiring are they gonna replace her? i guess the brain tumor will kill her off, and if that is so they may not replace her. what will happen to abe and theo?
    lots of questions to be answered before june..
    good luck renee. enjoy your retirement..

    I am so sad to hear this news. At least it’s because of her terms and not the show’s decision. Renee, I wish you the best in your future endeavors.

  3. From Sista_Tru

    If she wants a job behind the camera, Popeye’s is looking for a spokesperson. Good luck, gurl!

    I will miss Ms. Renee (lexie). She has been on Days for a long time. I wander are they going to replace her? Good luck on your retirement.

  5. From cw81

    She has unfortunately been more of a secondary character. Good luck in your future endeavors Renee!

    Hot damn! Renee Jones does not look like a 53 year old woman. I thought she was in her early 40′s at least. I wish her all the very best.

    I am totally shocked to be hearing this! Renee leaving? Lexie dying? I know that Days tricked us all before on this sort of thing (remember when Tek and Lexie had the car accident during the time when she was cheating on Abe with Tek?); however, now they’re saying that she’s leaving for good! What, are they thinking about pairing up nuCeleste and Abe, just like they had other Celeste and Abe together during the time that Lexie and Tek had disappeared? Tek was never seen again on top of that! Well, I must say that I will miss Renee on Days; like a beautiful angel she glides across the Days set; very graceful and, to me, she looks like she’s 39; maybe younger; she does NOT look 53;she looks like a model; that’s better than me and I’m younger! Good luck in whatever she wants to do; now how’s about Princess Greta (Princess Gina’s daughter) returning and it being revealed that she’s Stefano’s daughter, since the whole Gina thing has been rehashed? They never said anything, and I would bet that she’d be mad if she knew that Stefano is using Hope to steal art and using her mother’s name to do it, as she’d want Gina to RIP!

    I must say that I am in shock over this whole thing! Renee? I know that Days has tried to trick us all before in the Tek/Lexie car accident that took place when she was cheating on Abe with Tek, but now, they’re saying that Lexie is going to die and never come back and Abe could be paired up with nuCeleste? Well, good luck to Renee in whatever she chooses to do and I will miss her on the show. Where will Abe be without that beautiful, graceful angelic Lexie?

    So sad to hear that Renee will be leaving the show. I do not like to hear that Abe be paird up with Chleste. No, No, No. good Luck to Renee.

  10. From CM

    Wow…I can’t believe she’s 53…she’s a gorgeous woman that looks 10 years younger than that. She was always too hot to be Abe’s wife. But good for her on retiring and doing what she wants. I hope they don’t re-cast the role…watching her play emotional scenes with Lexie passing away would be very Emmy worthy. Maybe make up for the crazy mess of her leaving Abe because he switched some debate questions. That made no sense at all…esp from a woman that at one time slept with Abe’s son LOL.

  11. From Deborah

    I hate to see Renee go. She is one of the best actresses on television!

  12. From Linda

    Sad to hear that Renee will be leaving the show. She’s a beautiful woman and DOL won’t be the same without her, she will surely be missed by all. Enjoy your retirement, you deserve it!

  13. From betty

    Sad to she her go, but I wish her all the best in her retirement years. Enjoy the rest of your life.

  14. From Legena

    Sorry to see renee leave the show, If her character dies it is going to distory her father it will either kill him or make him meaner than ever. I know it will distory abe and theo.

  15. From James

  18. From Butterflydiamond

    I’m going to miss Lexie. She is the one of the best Dool show. Hope she changes her mind and comes back but i doubt. Dool will never be the same without her.

  20. From DOLvet

    I am so, so sad to see Lexie go. I have been watching Days since it was a spin off from The Doctors when my mom used to watch it back in 1960s (over 40 years ago). Renee much luck to you!! Take a vacation, but don’t leave TV entirely. You should be in the movies up there with Halle Barre.

  21. From Danielle

    53 years old? Damn, she looks good! That was more of a shock then her leaving! I’m gonna miss one of my fave characters, but happy for her!

  22. From Drew

    My thoughts…. allow Lexie to come forward to say she killed her father…since she is going to die …she won’t care to be blamed and it will be her way to save her friends since they were all traumatized by Stephano. A note will be placed her casket saying “I am sorry, please forgive me” with a name of the person who did it

  23. From Linda

    Well, I just saw Lexie die. Abe was great and so was Lexie. She talked about she needed to spend time with theo and I think he was on the show once since she found out about the tumor. Sometimes days writers have their heads up their ass and just don’t think. I have watched this show for 32 years and maybe missed 5 of them. I wonder what is going on in their heads sometimes. Oh well, sorry to see you go. I just hope Abe will remember he has a kid after the funeral. Or is he going to disappear? And we will hear from him when he turns 18 in a few months. Man, I have watched days for too long.
