Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins aka Sheila Watkins returned to our screens this week in her reoccurring role on the hit NBC daytime TV soap, Days of Our Lives.
Wherever Sheila goes there is always a guaranteed scent of drama in the air, and this week confirmed that sentiment, as she came head to head with Abe Carver once again!
Abe (James Reynolds), still holding a grudge over the alleged attempted theft of his credit card, lays into Sheila for the second time when she parks her car in his parking spot whilst she visits her friend, Eli Grant (Lamon Archey).
Sheila keeps the mood light hearted despite being seriously annoyed with Abe, by throwing in some subtle TLC references within her dialogue!
“Someone parked in my spot!“, Abe cries. “A beat up ’91 Chevette, licence plate T-L-C-4-E-V-A“. Sheila springs up and immediately blasts the mayor! “That would be TLC 4eva and, uh, yeah, that would be me!“.
Abe has Sheila’s car towed away, leaving her with a $250 fine that she cannot afford. Luckily, Eli bails her out but she insists she will get a job and pay him back.
When Sheila realizes Abe is the person she needs to contact for a job vacancy, she disapproves and calls him a jackass, which his daughter Lani Price (Sal Stowers) overhears and this causes an argument between the two!
Sheila wastes no time in telling Lani a few home truths when Lani makes some snide remarks about Sheila’s crooked past. “I don’t care what you call yourself“, Sheila exclaims. “You’re still the skank that broke Eli’s heart!“.
Continuing those epic TLC nuggets, Sheila, who has not yet realized that Abe is Lani’s father says, “I’m telling you, this guy is a first class creep, and a no good scrub!“.
They argue, and Sheila can’t believe how badly Lani treated a good man like Eli. Lani tells her to mind her own business and rushes off.
Sheila then apologizes to Eli, who asks her to stay out of his personal business and focus on her own and get a job!
She decides to see if there are any other jobs in town and thanks Eli for helping her get her car back so she has a place to sleep. He refuses to let her live in her car and offers to have her stay with him.
Lani watches the two friends hug and walk off together, as she scowls at them with jealousy.
Does Lani have anything to worry about? Can you see Sheila and Eli becoming more than good friends?
