Patrika Darbo recently returned to Salem as manipulative, busybody Nancy Wesley. We Love Soaps' Roger Newcomb caught up with the actress, who chatted about her return to Days of Our Lives and Nancy's support of her scheming daughter Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin).
WE LOVE SOAPS: Let's talk about your return to DAYS. How has it been for you? Is playing Nancy like riding a bike at this point?
PATRIKA DARBO: Absolutely. And we have such great writers at DAYS that know how to capture Nancy. There were a couple of things that were a little hard for me because so much had happened since when I left last time. Kids have grown up and I had so many questions about who belongs to who. That was a little in my head trying to figure out what the hell was going on, and why my daughter was talking to that lady put a flesh-eating disease on her face, Nicole. All those kind of things were a little hard because the history didn't quite continue forward. I think I would have shot her at the door instead of letting her into the house.
Nancy is supporting her daughter exclusively regardless of any repercussions. Regardless of whether it's right or wrong, she's going to do it because she loves her daughter and she's going to take care of her. READ MORE
Kristen (Eileen Davidson) accepted Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) marriage proposal. When she questioned his timing, Brady insisted it was because he loves her. Later Brady met with John (Drake Hogestyn), who tried to apologize to his son.
Nancy (Patrika Darbo) told Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) to chill out and to take the ego out of her manipulations of Dr. Hairy Chest (Shawn Christian). Nancy insisted Chloe was overplaying her hand.
Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) told Abby (Kate Mansi) that Daniel was the last person she wanted to talk to. Of course the next scene was of Daniel realizing he had to talk to Jennifer before she left town. READ MORE
Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson) has been a one-woman wrecking crew when it comes to the Black family on Days of Our Lives. Since her return to Salem, U.S.A., supercouple John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) have split; she's also bedding John's son Brady (Eric Martsolf). Now soap opera's answer to Jason Bourne has to pretend to be okay with Bristen, in order to save his gullible son from Stefano's (Joe Mascolo) adopted spawn!
On Tuesday's episode of DAYS, John clued Marlena in on his plan to bust up Brady and Kristen, by pretending he still has feelings for his diabolical ex. Will John's scam work, or will he push the late Isabella's baby boy further into Kristen's clutches?
Elsewhere in town, Nancy (Patrika Darbo) and Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) wondered if their plotting and planning to permanently bust up Dannifer (Shawn Christian and Melissa Reeves) was working. Watch the recap video after the jump!
Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) slapped the hell out of Daniel, (Shawn Christian) because of the scene Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) had staged.
Meanwhile, Chloe and Nancy (Patrika Darbo) scrambled to do damage control, because Chloe accidently left the pill bottle in Daniel’s room. Nancy went to Daniel’s hotel room to get the bottle. Chloe visited Jennifer, and informed her nothing happened between her and Daniel. I am absolutely loving Nancy’s return to Salem. She is so matter-of-fact about her scheming, and you all know I love a good schemer. READ MORE
