I'm a sucker for May/December romances on soaps, especially of the older woman/younger man variety. From As the World Turns' Casey (Billy Mangussen) and Emily (Kelley Menighan Hensley) to The Bold and the Beautiful's Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down) and Owen (Brandon Beemer), or more recently Ava (Maura West) and Morgan (Bryan Craig) on General Hospital, I can't get enough of pairings that find seasoned women getting their grooves back with younger men.
A torrid romance between Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) is just what Dr. Hairy Chest (Shawn Christian) should prescribe to make Days of Our Lives compelling again. Best of all, it would blow Jennifer's (Melissa Reeves) mind!
JJ is currently saddled with Eve's milquetoast daughter Paige (True O'Brien). After a promising debut as Salem's new resident bad boy—doing lustful lines of coke with Theresa (Jen Lilley) and terrorizing Dannifer—JJ is now all puppy dog eyes over boring Paige.
The couple doesn't have an ounce of chemistry and the storyline lacks oomph. If Paige's mother ended up sleeping with the young man she loves, things would get really interesting in Salem U.S.A, really fast!
The cherry on top of this potential May/December sundae would be Jennifer's reaction to her precious baby boy banging her high school nemesis from over two decades ago. Imagine Jennifer catching Eve in bed with her and Jack's son. She'd explode, causing sugary Horton donuts to glaze the entire town!
