Things got a little heated this week on the hit, long-running NBC soap, Days of our Lives!
Whilst digging the dirt on Mayor Abe Carver‘s opponent, Jack Deveraux,Sheila Watkins makes light of the fact she almost kissed her boss.
With Abe not completely dismissing the idea, Sheila leaned in and gave Abe a quick kiss — just to reassure herself that there was absolutely no chemistry between them!
“You’re not my type and you’re old enough to be my Dad!”, Sheila jokes. “You dress like him, too.”
Just as they agree to pretend the kiss never happened, Abe’s girlfriend, Valerie Grant, returns on the scene to surprise him with her support.
Unfortunately for the two, they were being watched by Jack, and he used this friendly encounter against Abe to smear his campaign to maintain his position.
Abe yells that Jack’s allegations are baseless. He’s not having an affair with Sheila. Val defends Abe and Jack grins as he reveals the photo of Sheila kissing Abe.
Everyone gasps. Sheila calls it a fake but they go on about how dishonorable Abe is. Abe reluctantly admits the photo is real and Sheila tells Val she can explain it. Val takes off as the press hounds Abe.
He races after her while Sheila says there’s nothing between them and takes the blame for initiating the kiss.
Val and Abe have a heart-to-heart in the park. Abe explains and apologizes. She accepts but they both agree to part ways, and kiss each other goodbye.
Sheila appears just as Val leaves, and decides that she too will be leaving Salem, and quits her job as his assistant to help save his reputation and mayoral position.
Abe pleads with her to stay — he needs her input to reach his full potential. But Sheila has made up her mind. She thanks him for all he has done for her and leaves town.
This is currently Tionne’s final scene for the show, as we reported last week. I doubt this will be the last we see of the feisty Sheila Watkins. Stay tuned!
In the office, Sheila (Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins) listens to her tunes with headphones while Abe (James Reynolds) yells at someone on a call. He complains about people facing consequences when they make mistakes.
He has two VIP tickets to Sade for Valerie (Vanessa Williams) but she had to cancel. Sheila tells him to go anyway. Abe invites her along.
Sheila says, “You’re my boss and you just asked me on a date.” Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) waltz in and Lani asks, “He did what now?” Abe explains. They tell him about the missing footage. His office and Salem SPD and John Black are the only ones who have access.
Sheila says John was there earlier to ask for the footage. She tells them how hot he is and she swooned over his sexy accent. Lani’s confused, “What accent?” Sheila flashes to meeting a man in a suit – but it wasn’t John, it was Xander (Paul Telfer)!
He conned her. She flashes to asking for ID and “John” confessing he forgot it, then swearing he was really John Black. Sheila was distracted by his muscles and when Eli shows his photo, Sheila confirms that’s him.
Lani and Eli go and Abe blows up. Sheila’s sorry. She admits her mistake but reminds him it won’t look good at HR. He asked her out on a date and then fires her?
“How’s that gonna look, Boss?”, Sheila threatens. Abe sighs and ends up giving Sheila the Sade tickets.
There’s only one question remaining — who will she invite as her date to the sold out VIP Sade concert?
