Tracey Bregman before she became a glamour queen over at Y&R. I vaguely remember her as Donna Craig, but I was so young I don't remember much of her story. Did she attempt suicide or fall out of a window? Don't know why that rings a bell.

I think she tried to fake jumping out a window at the Salem Inn (she was on the ledge) as a means of disrupting Don and Marlena's 1st wedding attempt (the ceremony was going on downstairs, I believe). Naturally, Don raced to his daughter's aid (I believe there was actually still some question whether Don was actually her father at this point), went on the ledge to talk her in, and then ended up falling off himself as he helped her to safety.

She tried to jump out of a window on Don & Marlena's wedding day. Don fell out instead. Wedding was postponed.

Ah, thanks Matt. Yes, that does ring a bell. Not sure, but all these years later, I find the image of Don falling off the ledge rather funny. :D

Wasn't Marlena the one to actually go first? I think that was an issue because he was angry at Donna or something. Deidre talked about that story on a talk show one time. It was funny because he fell off the building and went deaf.

LOL! You're welcome! It's not mine (though I think I have it), I've just watched it on YouTube many times. I figured that's what you were referring to but couldn't post it from your phone or something.

No, I just lost it a long time ago and haven't come across it again.


Also, this is literally the only pic I could find of Donna. She's in a few cast pics but I couldn't find anything else.

Ah, ok.

I think Linn might have one... I'm sure she'll see this.

It's so wild watching that clip of Deidre. The voice is still the same but some other things have changed slightly lol. She's still beautiful and idk... There's something about her that makes me smile.

She's just so good at these types of interviews. She can poke fun at what she's doing on Days yet make you want to tune in at the same time. Many soap stars often don't know their audience for these things; they have to realize that the plots DO sound strange to many of the viewers of these interviews.

Exactly!! It's fun. Ya know, aside from what some of us complain about daily, I love knowing Marlena is still a part of this show. Deidre has this certain magic that nobody else has and Ive noticed lately when she's on, I kinda sit up and take notice.

Ok so this has been on my mind for awhile and it will possibly annoy some but I'm gonna share it anyway. The story of John and Marlena was a riveting ride and some of the best moments I've had with my personal history as a Days viewer. Having said that, I'm more of a Marlena fan than a Jarlena fan. While I appreciate John Black, I was never a huge fan. If I had to keep one on the show, it would be Marlena. Nobody can really argue the fact that John has been written harshly lately. But maybe the writers wanted to find some way to get Marlena free and this is how they went about it. Does it make sense to the character of John? Not so much, but it is what it is. So I'm going to go out on a very shaky limb and say Im glad they removed John from Marlena's orbit. I want to see her independent. I want to see what could be ahead for her without the mouth of an octopus on her face all the time. If there is an inevitable reunion, fine....but play with her character for awhile. There's plenty more ground to cover with Marlena and this fan wants to see it!

Eh. I agree. I wish they could have done it without destroying John, but whatever. My guess is that they'll probably slap them back together somewhere down the line and I'm not looking forward to that happened while they whitewash how he treated her. I like her current role on the show.

I agree......I LOVED the affair storyline...seriously some great soapy stuff and for a very long time it was my absolute favorite story. That said....it just seems that the longer we see Jarlena around now the less I like them and I was truly glued to their story and all that came after so having said that I'm fine with Marlena being John free for now, but I don't think that has to last forever. I feel really bad for Drake above everyone else, but he's also played a part in what I believe is my dislike of who John has become. When Kristen was returning I was delighted because I thought it gave Jarlena that chance for story....that's sort of happened but it's also not met my expectations (not that anything on this show has met my expectations in the last year or so, but anyway).....the story should have been written better. We as an audience should have been told what John's plan was and it didn't have to include sleeping with Kristen to get her away from Brady.....seriously, he could have come up with something way more interesting.....so now he lost his son and wife....brilliant.
