Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that some big exits are on the way – including Victoria Konefal’s exit as Ciara Brady. With so many cast changes happening, DOOL fans are naturally curious about what’s going on. It seems like there’s a new shocker every day, so viewers are trying to wrap their heads around this flood of departure news.
That brings us to a crucial question: Why is Victoria Konefal leaving Days of Our Lives? DOOL fans might be wondering if Konefal quit or was fired, but it may be somewhere in the middle. Insiders insist there were some behind-the-scenes issues, so it might’ve led to the perfect exit storm.
Days has clearly been tightening the purse strings since Chandler Massey (Will Horton) and Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) were blindsided by their firings. Galen Gering is also set to depart along with Camila Banus, who was reportedly offered a pay cut and declined.
If Days wouldn’t pony up the cash for Banus, they may not have been willing to do it for Konefal either. Banus has been at Days of Our Lives far longer, so if she was offered a pay cut – Konefal may have been offered a pay cut, too.
However, DOOL insiders suggest there were perhaps deeper issues than just money. Konefal may not have been happy, and Days may not have been happy with her either. It’s common to have clashing behind the scenes, so that might’ve been a factor in all this.
Of course, Days of Our Lives insiders also point to issues between Banus and DOOL – and they still wanted Banus to stay at a cheaper price. When it comes down to it, Days usually does what’s best for the show – at least if they can afford it.
It’s tough to imagine Konefal being outright fired, but she may have been lowballed into leaving.
Konefal is young and has a chance to score some other film and primetime gigs, so she might as well go after those roles now. It seems likely Konefal couldn’t reach an agreement with Days and quit to pursue other opportunities.
