Soap vixen Arianne Zuker
has opted not to renew her contract at Days of our Lives
. As Nicole Walker (aka porn star "Misty Circle"), she has spent eight filthy and gorgeous years slutting around Salem. The comedic highlight was definitely Nic's love triangle with Brady — who was played by Zuker's real-life husband, Kyle Lowder
— and his Greek zillionaire grandfather, Victor (Jen
's papa, John Aniston
"Arianne has decided to take this opportunity to venture out and explore new projects," a show rep says. "The cast and crew of Days
know that she is an extraordinary talent, and although she will be dearly missed, we wish her every success! There are no immediate plans to recast the role of Nicole.” Zuker last airs Feb. 7. FYI, the Days
rep says no exit scene is planned to explain the actress' absence and that Nicole's story is being left "very open-ended."
