DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Melissa Reeves Lets It Rip As Jennifer Finds Eve In Bed With JJ!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) finally walked in on a moment that will forever be burned in her brain!

Yup, that’s right! She caught more than an eyeful of her son JJ (Casey Moss) having sex with her arch-enemy Eve (Kassie DePaiva).  This story point had been building for months, and finally the cat out of the bag. When Jennifer stumbled on to the scene of her son in the throes of passion with Eve, she lets Eve have it, and we mean have it!

Filled with disgust, Jennifer tells Eve twisting a knife physically into her would have been less painful that to use her son in this way to get back at her, because Eve hates her so much!  Eve, as you recall is so hell-bent on making Jennifer’s life miserable after Jenn got both Eve’s guys – Jack and Frankie – throughout her adult life.  As Jennifer continues her onslaught, and as she comes to the horrible conclusion that her son has been sleeping with Paige’s (True O’Brien) mother, she is sickened.  Jennifer even lays a big ole’ bitch-slap on Eve.  Eve begs Jennifer not to tell Paige.  JJ even admits that he wanted to be with Eve, and it wasn’t just Eve setting up Jennifer.   In the end, Jennifer walks out disgusted.

Kudos have to go to Melissa Reeves for giving a performance that measured up to the reveal.  It’s nice to see when a veteran performer is given some meaty material, and its not just about a meandering love story. 

So, what did you think of the scenes between Melissa, Casey and Kassie?  Share your thought below!

Wow…powerhouse performance by Missy! I miss the feistiness of Jennifer Rose Horton. It was a great show. Although I like JJ has real feelings for Eve. He did a quick hesitation in the hallway…Mom or Eve..mom won that one.

The show down was beautiful and I loved it. I knew Jennifer would go ballistic when she found out. Melissa Reeves did a terrific job showing the anger, disgust and hurt that Jennifer experienced. I loved the line about twisting the knife in her chest. I do think Jennifer is wrong about this being revenge. Eve is just an alley cat who wanted to get it on with any man. JJ just happened to be her prey since all the adult men she hit on were smart enough to steer clear. Kassie De Paiva did a great job showing Eve’s… Read more »

yeah, amazing powerhouse performances from Missy Reeves, Kassie DePaiva, and Casey Moss! Wow!!! Great to see Melissa Reeves get some material that shows her off. Give Melissa MORE!

I agree… I want to see more of this Jennifer come out..I am tired of them writing her her uptight and Kassie is such a good actress, I think she brings out the best in all of them….

Hate to say it but Paige has to go….doesn’t work for me….

Jeremy
Guest

@ Elite Advisors – Kassie does bring out a lot in all of them, almost as good as Eileen Davidson. As for Paige, I love the character, though the writers need to work harder to define her, make her stronger, more active. True O’Brien is such a gem, the material she’s been given has been crappy. Hopefully, the new changes behind the scenes, they will begin to write deeper for Paige. True is such a talent, she’s a very connected actress, in my opinion.

Kassie was wonderful.
I wish Jenifer would stop wearing pale lipstick. I’d like to see her wearing mauve pink or something with a little color.

Who cares about lipstick? We’re not talking about Y&R! lol

Hi, harry. I agree that Jen’s lipstick is too pale. However mauve is not very flattering on blondes. Apricot or a peachy shade is more the thing. She is so pretty, that color would bring out her eyes more.
I did a double take, watching Melissa in action. I would love to see more of that.
Spitfires come in small packages….LOL.

ie: Jenn’ barely their upper lip

LOL

I always just thought it was lip gloss…. as she didn’t want to “feature” her lack of

whatever shade she wears blends in with; and makes a pasty ghostly non conturred no vitality unlived

so she over uses her eyes for exasperation and wounded

I would like to do an entire makeover of Jennifer, but yes to darker lipstick!

I rewatched the scene…Melissa Reeves needs more scene stealing moments like this…Jen was getting tiresome especially with Daniel…now im starting to like her again…i did not care too much for this story but the confrontation scene boost my opinion and now im ok with J.J. and ‘Mrs Robinson’…lol

@CeeCee… I’m a couple eps behind

I can’t argue with the majority… (yet)

if Melissa Reeves is propped and lauded (well)

LOL correct JimH…. “…Jen was getting tiresome especially with Daniel ”

I don’t know that I will ever be not TIRED and achingly OVER dullard dr. jonas

Casey Moss and Kassie DePaiva… happy dance !

I know what you mean, jimh. I think Jen should just be single for a while. I like this transformed Jen……I’m anxious to see what she’ll do next. Wow! I was actually taken aback as we do not usually see this sedate, little woman (much like myself) , give it her all.
I am also so pleased to have seen Kassie give a great performance. Her embarrassment and mortification looked so real….exceptional job all around; including JJ.

I’ve been very down on DOOL lately but yesterday’s show was the best I’ve seen in a long time with veteran and legacy characters front and center, giving the audience a partial payoff to the JJ/Eve storyline, and the three actors delivering great performances. This is what DOOL should be about, not elephant statues and Clyde and his family. Having said that, I think that it says so much about how bad JJ and Paige are, and how misguided the DOOL’s writers have been, that the payoff so many of us were waiting for was Jennifer finding out about the… Read more »

Hahaha! Brilliant- elephant statues! Well done, you are so correct, what on earth is that whole boring storyline about? Serena and Eric are so horribly boring and sedated, I have to fast forward through all of their scenes. Days writers need to up their game.

Yes, great soap scene. More, please? DAYS seems to do this classic daytime drama suspense-building right. And what a climax!

this was one of the best episodes in a long time except when sonny confronted will for cheating – the best part was when jennifer tried to smother eve with the pillow & jj stood there petrified out of his mind – i laughed so hard i thought i was going to have a stroke………….
melissa as well as kassie were brilliant in those scenes and i applaud both of them!!

I actually thought Melissa’s acting was a bit amateurish in some areas. I did enjoy the reveal–Jen jumping on Eve. More good story to come hopefully.

Wow, that was a really good reveal…the best cat fight, although one sided, in ages! Does DAYS’ performers have good medical coverage?!

This final blow-up was what we were waiting for, and it’s great that they were “caught in the act!”
It was an Emmy winning performance by Jennifer who was just stupendous! Her anger and hurt poured out so realistically. I just loved this scene and didn’t even delete it from my DVR.!
Now we are waiting for the scene when Paige hears about it. Should be equally priceless!!!

Melissa Reeves is a limited actress. She usually does not excel at meaty moments in storylines but she played this well. Understated and controlled. She portrayed both anger and hurt in an excellent fashion far exceeding what I expected from this reveal. Kudos to Melissa Reeves. It’s about time you showed something other than judgment or pity. You expressed honest emotion and it came across as real. Casey Moss also went even higher into the stratosphere with his acting in this scene. He keeps growing and it is amazing to watch. Kassie DePaiva is just spectacular in every scene. You… Read more »

Mateo, perfectly stated! I agree, Melissa Reeves finally showed us something more than judgement and pity. I used to love Jen! For the past year or so, probably with the on again/off again pairing with Daniel, I began to lose interest in the character and actress. However, the scenes yesterday and today, proved me wrong, I HOPE DAYS will give Jennifer a BIG storyline, a storyline for her, not Abby or JJ. Melissa was showcased with a fantastic reveal that we’ve been waiting for, she delivered. I want to see more of Jennifer Horton, hopefully the writers will continue now… Read more »

Mateo, you are so right about Kassie DePaiva. She is a force. Of course, how could she not be. She spent 20 years working with the very best – Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser.

Days of Our Lives has its problems, but a talented cast is not one of them. The show has been wasting talent left and right, and here’s a perfect example. For months Jennifer Horton has had poor story lines. Melissa Reeves has done her best with them, but there was only so much she could do. Now, good material was written for the character and MR more than delivered a superb performance.

I hate this storyline. Cheap drama. I haven’t been watching these scenes. It’s like the writers decided to make things as awful as possible. I did watch Jennifer’s discovery scene, and I will say that the skill of the actors far exceeded the quality of the sleazy material given them.

I agree, this storyline is sleazy (so is most of the show) and I just haven’t been interested in watching at all .. until TUESDAY! When I heard Jennifer was going to bust Eve & JJ, I just HAD to watch that! And Melissa Reeves did not disappoint! How satisfying was it to watch Jennifer leap into that bed and attack Eve!? And all her scenes have been spot on the last two days! She speaks for all of us in the audience who have been disgusted by Eve and JJ and this whole sordid mess! Bravo, Missy!

Very good scenes. I had to rewind a couple times to catch that look on Jen’s face and couldn’t stop laughing when she tried to smother Eve with a pillow. I just wish Eve could’ve slapped Jen back — Jen is long overdue. I eagerly await someone knocking that sanctimonious attitude right out of her.

Great show…I would love to see that with all Jen has gone through this year that she starts showing signs of going crazy like Laura. Please bring back Jamie Lyn.

Melissa was terrific. In that situation there was no reason to show any restraint. Jennifer was shocked, embarrassed and furious. In that situation anyone would lose control. Congratulations to Melissa for giving that scene all the craziness it deserved.

“I would NEVER let Jennifer slap ME” it would have been an all out no holds barred cat fight… had I been Eve I commend Melissa Reeves for contributing to and with Casey Moss and Kassie DePaiva once her sanctimonious pious rant and “rage” started… calling Eve every name in the book… I just had it… livid I get that the questionable stirrings of Eve, Theresa, and Kristen are … I wouldn’t change them a bit these three actresses are worth their weight in gold Jennifer Horton: once again, her character nose dived … this fervor of hers, whatever drives… Read more »

Yes-for once, Daniel was wrong about Jen’s paranoia! I’m pretty harsh on her, but this is not the Jennifer Rose Horton we grew up with. She can be immature, and maybe some will say here, but Eve brought it right back to reality when she begged Jenn not to tell Paige, because, after all, she’s just a kid. Yes, Eve, and if her mama’s any indication, not a very stable one at that. Paige looks like she’s just barely hanging on by the tips of her fingers. Still, Paige has detached herself & moved out but Eve’s just stalking her… Read more »

I thought Melissa Reeves gave an EXCELLENT performance and really made me believe she could kill the character of Eve – LoL – even the follow-up episode was great when she said that Paige and JJ deserve a chance (but honestly, I don’t really see how) to be together and when Eve growled to her “over my DEAD body!” I loved the reaction from Jen, that was priceless.
GREAT job – now please dump that STUPID Elephant storyline and resolve this nonsense of Ben and Jordan and their hillbilly dad, enough of that.

I am no fan of Melissa Reeves, the person (mainly because of her stand against gay rights/marriage). And let’s be clear: she should not throw stones… (Nor should I, for that matter…)

As for the character of Jennifer, it was a tour de force. Even though it was over-the-top histrionics, the histrionics were called for in this situation. And it was a nice, shall we say, “climax” to this storyline.

And am I the only one who likes JJ and Eve together?!?!…

James…dude…I (also) like JJ and Eve together…H-E-L-L-O!!!!! On-screen-wise, I think that both Casey Moss and Kassie Depaiva have amazing chemistry together. And…so what if Eve and Paige are mother and daughter????? I mean…JJ has W-A-Y MORE CHEMISTRY with Eve!!!!! As for that mild-mannered and annoying Paige…well, never mind…DEFIANT L-O-L!!!!! One last thing for now: I’m sorry but I think that that self-righteous and meddling Jennifer needs to mind her own business. JJ is a GROWN MAN…and Jennifer needs to remember that!!!!! PERIOD!!!!!!

James…take care, Brother. Peace.

Hey, jaybird…missed you. I think that what we see in Eve and JJ is experience on Eve’s part. Poor Little Paige is very green when it comes to sex, ….we all start wide-eyed and innocent. . Eve is a sl&t, LOL. An innocent girl has nothing to ward off that force. Any young man will be attracted to the experience and manipulation (pardon the pun). He certainly does not love a Eve. And, that’s the crux of the matter. If it had been anyone else but the mother of JJ’s girlfriend, or his mother’s archenemy, then, the affair would have… Read more »

One more thing on this storyline: There is one other big ick factor — is it just me or is Jennifer constantly kissing and hugging her son non-stop? It’s a little creepy that JJ is in the throes of a torrid affair with a woman old enough to be his mother while at the same time his own mother is constantly showering him with hugs and kisses. I honestly don’t know any other parent/sibling combination in which hugs and kisses are given each time they greet each other, each time they say goodbye, and sometimes during their conversations, particularly when… Read more »

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
