Deidre made Days of Our Lives history this week with the airing of her 4,000th episode on August 21st. The cast and crew surprised Deidre with a celebration, complete with a 4,000 cake. Deidre explained:

“There was high excitement on set. We all got called to stage. My pal Maya was siting with me as I turned to her and said, “Renewal???” As I entered the stage and saw Greg I was even more convinced. Until, that is, I saw the 4000 cake and cast and crew looking at me! Stunning and a complete surprise. As sweet was the bouquet placed in my room with a card that said, ‘Congratulations on 4,000 episodes. A huge accomplishment for an even larger talent. Sincerely, Schuyler’  Class shows!”
