I'm REALLY tired of Brady now, I wouldn't mind if he took a break for awhile, at least until Kristen returned.
I wouldn't mind if he slammed his car into a big tree.
Who do you think he is? AJ Quartermaine? :D
Is AJ dead? I haven't watched GH since the early 90s.
No, but AJ is now unconscious after Sonny shot him. But my comment was from AJ crashing into a tree when he was drunk years ago which caused Jason to have a brain injury which turned him from Jason Quartermaine into Jason Morgan.

Now with Sean Kanan leaving GH, I don't know if they are killing AJ off or what. I stopped watching the show. I just watch LiRic clips now that RH is back. :)

Back to Days:

I didn't like how Nicole put Eric on the spot like that. The issue between them is personal and doesn't need to be broadcasted to the few party goers. Tacky. I am seriously hating the writing for Nicole now. Ericole had potential, but someone bts dropped the ball and it shows.

Jennifer is an uptight bore. Liam should forget her and move on.

Rory!

Liam is one serious creeper. Didn't Adrianne introduce Jennifer to Liam? And didn't Abe vouch for him? How they did not know that he's obsessive, if they knew him that well? No one develops these creepy tendencies all of a sudden. You would think that a lawyer (since he's Justin's friend), and a former police officer would've sensed something.

They really have to get rid of Brady. Yesterday he was whining about John not being around most of his childhood. WHA???? When did that happen? John's been in Salem since 1986! And today he's bonking his former cousin on his granddaddy's sofa. I could maybe understand it if he was actually played by a 22 year old, but they cast a 42 year old. Move it along, de-soras him, or get rid of him. But I'm sure I have more good stuff to look forward to, like Kristen coming back and saving him from self destruction :puke:
I don't think anything has made sense about Brady/John's relationship since even MarDar. It's like they just wrote a completely different backstory for them that's the opposite of what actually happened.
I thought it was interesting that Brady had developed more of a relationship with Victor as an adult. But I always wanted to see them go back to the John and Marlena relationship, too. They were both so supportive of him and Madison. I was ripshit when he claimed John wasn't around in any way during his childhood. If John's hero days are what Tomsell were trying to reference, every child of an 80s character can make that claim. And Shawn certainly never made that claim of Bo. But then Tomsell never wrote him.
Yeah, but even then John didn't miss much time in Salem. I don't mind the relationship with Victor to a point, but there was a time, even before they brought John back, that they were basically implying that Victor raised him. Uh, no. Dude was in a nursing home most of Brady's childhood. It's so irritating. It's irritating with characters who weren't on screen, but we actually saw this stuff play out. Brady was only offscreen between being little and being SORASed for a year, and then wasn't offscreen again until 2005...so he's been offscreen a total of 4 years, and most of those were as an adult. What he claims about John just flat out did not happen.
Exactly! And it only makes their precious Brady look even more the whiny baby he is. If they think we are suppose to sympathize with him they're sadly mistaken.

Abe is a famiily friend.Jennifer worked on his campaign for mayor.Maxine is a co-worker who is friendly with and supported Jennifer and Daniel.The party was to celebrate Jennifer and Daniel reuniting (gag,gag,gag) so there were reasons for both to be at the party regardless of their ethnicity.

Just because you hang out with a dumb rich guy doesn't mean you're a gold digger. Maggie has a valid point about Brady and Theresa being bad for each other. They're both addicts who are not dealing with their addiction. The gold digger thing is just Maggie being her usual judgemental self.


She was trying to get his wallet

Quote:
 
I honestly don't think Theresa is a gold digger. She was interested in scoring drugs and hanging out with people who provided her with drugs (JJ and Vargas) neither is rich. If she was interested in a rich man, she would've immediately set her sights on Brady or other rich guys. She didn't seek out Brady, they were just thrown together. Brady was still rich and available when Theresa was obsessing over her inexplicable vendetta against Jennifer.


so true. The writers forgot Teresa is not always a user. She even gave JJ money when he didn't want to live with Jennifer. It might have been Vargas, but it was money that she could have had. She even trusted him with her money one time to get her drugs. So true she could have went after Brady back in November after Kristin left

Quote:
 
I don't even know why I am trying to make sense of Theresa. Nothing about her character makes the slightest sense.


word. Today, she sounded like she is done with Jennifer
The wallet thing is more about her being a petty druggie thief than a gold digger. Also, if I remember the scene correctly, she just admired his gold credit card and then she lamented her lack of funds.
While holding Brady's wallet on March 3rd she also said to herself: "Don't show your hand yet. You're in it for the big payoff." So the whole thing wasn't nearly as innocent as you seem to think and totally supports her being a gold digger, IMO.

It would actually bother me if anyone who knew her but not well enough to go by first names and called her Mrs. Deveraux. She divorced Jack. She's been going by Jennifer Horton since well before Jack returned. Its a continuity thing, IMO. As for Ms. vs. Mrs. its way too common a misstep.
Yea, but she is not MRS. Horton. Ms. Horton? That's fine. Mrs. Deveraux? Even with the divorce, some people keep their married name, so that's fine. Alice was Mrs. Horton. I know some people mess up with mrs and ms, but you'd think Rory would know her status. You know being her son's friend and all. :shrug:
Re: the bolded...that presumes that Rory understands the difference between the two. You haven't forgotten that he's a burnout, have you?

Addressing why all of a sudden it seems that Abby Is baby crazy. I think the idea that She could have been pregnant Not to trap Ej but in geNeral made her long for it when it wasn't there. Its the wanting something more.

Now to Theresa. She is a gold digger. When she found out that Dr. Dan was Victor'S godson she tried to start omething With him.

The wallet thing is more about her being a petty druggie thief than a gold digger. Also, if I remember the scene correctly, she just admired his gold credit card and then she lamented her lack of funds.
Speaking of addiction, why in the world is Theresa addicted? What is her reason for being addicted? My understanding is Brady got back into drugs due to his failed relationship with Kristen. And also he seems to have serious issues with his father right now. As for Theresa, who in the world knows.

I wonder if Theresa probably got involved in prostitution or some other shady operation like her older sister and she somehow escaped. Or maybe she's somehow afraid of her parents for whatever reason. What is her relationship with her parents exactly? Does she even have a good one with her parents? Maybe they've tried everything to help her and they just gave up because she's a hopeless cause and they're probably going to get a phone call saying she died.

Also, what was Theresa's job in Human Resources exactly? What did her job description entail? Did she get the job because of her aunt Kayla?
Theresa's motives, her relationship with her parents and why she's so scared about returning to LA are all a mystery. Personally, I think her family is shitty and doesn't care much about her (except Eric and Caroline).

She got her first job (working with Jennifer) through her aunt. When Jennifer fired her because she tried to embezzle money from the hospital, Anne hired her for the sole purpose of making Jennifer's life hell. Totally plausible. :eyeroll:

As for her addiction, people develop addiction because of biological factors, psychological factors, or social factors. Maybe Theresa was hanging around with the wrong crowd. We don't know much about her. Maybe, Eve will shed some light to this character.
I always feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone when people start complaining about Theresa being a character who makes no sense. At the very least, I'm watching a different show than the rest of you are. While a couple of the below comments are pure conjecture on my part, the vast majority of them are taken straight from what has been shown and said on-screen.

When Theresa was hanging out with Vargas, he was presenting himself as a man of wealth because Nick had turned the thirty thousand dollars that Vargas had hidden before getting arrested (the first time, not the second time) into close to one hundred thousand dollars. He was wearing expensive suits and renting limousines, and that is why Theresa showed an interest in him.

Theresa also showed an interest in Daniel before learning that he was involved with Jennifer, simply because he was a doctor, meaning that he was a man of wealth in Theresa's eyes.

Likewise, Theresa showed an interest in Nick because he was wearing an expensive suit during their first meeting, but she quickly changed her mind when J.J. clued her in to who Nick truly was.

Granted, it is true that J.J. certainly didn't have much to offer her in terms of financial gain, but she only showed real interest in him when she was feeling angry or upset about something and just wanted someone to want her (or she was trying to piss off Jennifer, of course). He was never someone she was actively pursuing.

Theresa has also consistently lamented her lack of funds and her inability to buy the material things that she covets and believes that she deserves as a result of that lack of funds. She has tried several get-rich-quick-(for-now) schemes in the past, and when she does have money (like the money she stole from Vargas after he got arrested the second time), she quickly blows it on material possessions.

As for being addicted, there hasn't really been anything to suggest that she's truly an addict, IMO, and I don't think that she identifies as such. Other people identify her as such, but at the risk of offending anyone who believes differently, not everyone who chooses to use drugs is an addict, and overdosing once doesn't make one an addict, either. Theresa seems to drink and do drugs because she likes drinking and doing drugs -- nothing more, nothing less. People just imposed this whole "stay clean and sober" thing on her because of her legal troubles in Los Angeles and her overdose in Salem (and, of course, because they care about her and don't want her to use drugs because drugs are "bad"). When she overdosed on GHB, it wasn't because she "needed" that much -- it was just because she was pissed off and cocky and thought that she could handle it, and J.J. wasn't planning to use it, so she wasn't willing to let it go to waste.

Now, Brady, on the other hand, is absolutely an addict. He wasn't always addicted to alcohol, and I disagree with Maggie's view that an addict has to stay away from all addictive substances, but he was most certainly addicted to cocaine, and now he is most certainly developing an addiction to alcohol. But Theresa is not an addict, from what I have seen. Certain characters just believe that she is because of their narrow-minded views of the concept of addiction.

As for Theresa's background, what we know is that she has issues with her mother that stem from the fact that Shane wasn't around much when Theresa was younger (we don't know how frequently he was absent, but he has admitted himself that this is true, so it's not just Theresa's biased view of the matter), which left most of the parenting in Kim's hands, and Kim isn't exactly the most stable character in Days history herself. It has also been suggested (and is also pretty obvious to anyone who has taken a Psych 101 course, I'd guess) that Theresa's pattern of going after older men and using sex to get what she wants has a lot to do with her "daddy issues", which are themselves a direct result of Shane's absence from her life during her formative years.

Theresa is not afraid of her parents, and they absolutely do love her (as do the rest of her family members, although they have all been practicing tough love with her lately), but her relationship with them (particularly with her mother) is very tense and rocky, and she often pits them against each other to get what she wants. She also feels that Kim is very preachy and judgmental, which is part of why she has so much disdain for those qualities in other people (like Jennifer); Kim is a therapist, so Theresa often had to put up with being psychoanalyzed when she was growing up, and she didn't appreciate that at all.

Theresa's original job at the hospital involved working as Jennifer's assistant, and Jennifer did indeed agree to give Theresa that job as a personal favor to Kayla. When that didn't work out (initially because Theresa was lazy and never did any work, but then later because Jennifer started to realize that Theresa was bad news, and finally because Theresa tried to steal from the hospital), Anne hired Theresa to work for her in the human resources department. Theresa's "official" job was to handle the creation and distribution of hospital employee identification badges, but her "unofficial" job (and the real reason that Anne hired her) is to make Jennifer's life miserable.

Theresa doesn't want to return to Los Angeles because if she does, she will be sent directly to prison, as per the terms of her probation. Theresa avoided doing serious time in prison after falling in with the wrong crowd in Los Angeles, and she only managed that because she agreed to move to Salem and get a fresh start there. One of the terms of her probation is that she is required to remain employed; if she does not, she will be sent back to Los Angeles, her probation will be revoked, and she will be forced to serve out the remainder of her sentence in prison. That is why it's crucial that she doesn't lose her job, and it's one of the reasons that she hates Jennifer, who not only fired Theresa, but also was given the sole vote in deciding whether Theresa would get to stay in Salem or be sent back to Los Angeles (and by extension, prison) after the overdose occurred. Theresa hated Jennifer before that happened (for the reasons I have already mentioned above), but she hated Jennifer even more after that incident, because she resented the fact that Jennifer had been given that much power over her (and had even rubbed it in her face a bit). And now, everyone loves to remind her that she should be thanking Jennifer for keeping her out of prison, which just fans the flames.

Theresa was adamant about having sex on the couch in the Kiriakis mansion because that's just how she is -- she uses sex to get what she wants, and what she wants right now is Brady. She felt that showing him that she was adventurous enough and dangerous enough to have sex out in the open would make her more attractive to him, and he had also told her earlier that he wanted to do something different because they were stuck in a rut, so that was her solution. She also feels that sleeping with Brady is an adequate way of repaying him for buying her an expensive designer purse, but that's another matter.

Jennifer knows that money is one of Theresa's main motivating factors -- after all, she did catch Theresa trying to steal money from the hospital, and she knows that J.J. tricked Theresa into trying to steal from the hospital a second time -- so it is not unreasonable to assume that Maggie also knows (about the former incident, anyway -- obviously not the latter), which means that Maggie isn't just being her usual judgmental self; she does indeed have a reason to suspect that Theresa is a gold-digger. And in this case, Maggie's absolutely right about Theresa, as the audience knows because Theresa has commented on at least three recent occasions that she is interested in Brady's money.

Now, all of that having been said, it is true that Theresa has also shown a different side of herself on a few rare occasions -- mainly when she was around J.J. before the overdose and the aftermath of that event occurred. She did give J.J. some money when he needed a place to stay. She did bond with J.J. a few times when they both still agreed that they had bitchy, judgmental mothers. She has shown vulnerability with Caroline. As with many people, Theresa's tough, shallow exterior is basically just a defense mechanism. But that doesn't change the fact that until she decides to drop that wall, she truly is currently just interested in money, drugs, and sex (seemingly in that order) most of the time.

I wouldn't say that Theresa is inconsistent at all; she's just complex.

I wouldn't say that Theresa is inconsistent at all; she's just complex.
Okay, so I took more than psych 101 but I am still not seeing what you're seeing. The show hasn't explained why is Theresa so money hungry. She doesn't come from a poor background. When she was little, her father was so well off that they owned the current DiMera mansion. Her mother was married to a Hollywood producer when Theresa was growing up, so she doesn't seem like she's from the wrong side of the tracks. Now, I understand that LA rich and Salem rich are two different things. What's considered wealthy in small towns is just comfortable in big cities. I get that. But the way Theresa talks, it's like she grew up dirt poor.

That's not the only thing that doesn't make sense about Theresa, her whole probation doesn't make sense. They never explained why she's in Salem. She could've had the same probation condition in LA, i.e., work and not use drugs. Also, the reason she's afraid to go back to LA is not because she'll go to jail if she goes back, that's not what her parents were threatening her with. They were threatening her to take her to LA so that she can finish her probation there. Dan the douche was threatening her with jail time. And JJ has a video of her impersonating Abby so that she can cash a check (which will never be admitted as avidence in court). But whatever!

As for the drug addiction, I actually agree with you about that. Not everyone who uses drugs is an addict. And I am not actually sure if it's even part of her probation since we've never heard her talk about court supervised drug tests or any of that. But what's clear (at least to me) is that Theresa is always looking for a way to score drugs. She did that with Vargas and as soon as she scored, she moved on to some random guy at the club.

She didn't hook up with Vargas because he was rich, she hooked up with him because he had drugs, and he could get her to the Club TBD opening ceremony (totally lame ceremony). But I won't even over analyze that event because Theresa was just a plot devise so that Vargas is carted off to jail.

Theresa, like any other person with major addiction issues, needs money to score drugs, and she steals or attempted to steal twice because she needs that. In my personal and professional experience, that happens all the time. And it doesn't make the person bad or a scum but someone who needs treatment.

Again, I don't think Theresa is a gold diggger. Gold diggers actually work very hard to land a rich guy. She's never done that. She spent most of her time in Salem in JJ's company because he was her dealer. She knows Salem families, she knows who's rich and who's not. She could've just focused on landing herself a rich guy, instead of playing games with a high schooler.

@Will&Sonny Wow, what an interesting post. I think I'm starting to understand a lot more about Theresa. However, I still have one question that no one may answer for a while: what exactly did she do in L.A. that was so bad she was facing serious time in jail?

@Kaha you actually do have a point. If she had to serve her probation in L.A., she could have simply served it there. Why move across the coast to serve probation in another town when she simply could have stayed behind to serve her term. I think there might be a bigger reason for this. Maybe there might be other probation stipulations we don't know about that forced her to move in the first place.

Also, do gold diggers usually end up murdering their spouses when they do snag them? Because on a lot of ID shows there are a bunch of gold diggers who do just that.

I have heard Parker speak
He's very chatty when he's with Daniel. I think the way he says Jennifer is cute too.

Why do they make her wear that nasty wig on the show? Her hair looks really nice in this photo.

According to IMDB, this photo is dated 14 December 2000.

I can't see an Abe and Maxine pairing at all. She seems too brash for him.

I don't get the nasty remarks about Maxine, she is an attractive person. The show seems to want to ugly her up, maybe to make her seem more not rich? I think Abe and Maxine would be GREAT! And maybe Maxine could stop working at the hospital and she and Abe could start a detective agency. Yep, I am so in for some Mabe.

Just started watching Thursday's episode.

1) Where did JenJen get those pants? They're awful.
2) My 18-year old has that top. It's age-appropriate for my daughter, not Jen.

I agree with so many who have questioned the direction the Ericole relationship has taken. This attempted seduction is so sad. I feel for both characters and both actors.

Days has an unlimited supply of ugly pants.Sami and Gabi were usually stuck with them but since they are leaving,Jennifer is slated to be the next victim.I think their next step is to expand their stock of ugly shoes.
