Daytime actress Alison Sweeney, 37, was on the Ellen Show as a guest DJ where she made a shocking announcement. After 21 years of playing Sami Brady, she will be leaving the daytime soap in 2015.

"I've been on Days of Our Lives for 21 years. I'm celebrating 21 years and decided that it's going to be my last year with the show," Sweeney said on Ellen. "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. It's awesome. I love Sami, I love Salem, I love my job, I love daytime, I love the fans — I love everything about it."

It's shocking to hear about her departure, but she's been on the show for 21 years and she definitely deserves a break and a chance to do something new and exciting.

"It would be awesome to have some kind of happy ending — but then, I also think Sami probably deserves some sort of twisted Breaking Bad ending," she said.

Sami has caused quite a stir in Salem over the last 21 years. How would you like to see things end for her character?
