Things are heating in Salem!
Sheila Watkins (T-Boz) and Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) are missing in action at work, so the furious Abe Carver (James Reynolds) decides to fire her from her newly appointed role as his assistant!
Concerned about the whereabouts of the friendly twosome, Lani Price (Sal Stowers) wants to find out why they are missing at work and heads to Eli’s house — finding Eli half naked with Sheila walking around in her nightwear!
Lani see’s green and has a jealous rant at Eli. Meanwhile, Sheila leaves them to talk and confronts Abe at work to save her job. He doesn’t believe she was sick — until she is sick right in front of him… on his shoes!
Abe finally has some compassion for Sheila’s sickness and allows her to keep her job, reminding her to inform him in future if she is sick again.
Valerie Grant (Vanessa Williams) drops by to see Abe to reveal that she has landed her dream job — but she will have to move away from Salem! She suggests Abe join her or they will have to consider a long distance relationship.
Abe isn’t sold on Valerie’s proposal. Sheila offers Abe some of her own opinions on the subject, insisting long distance relationships don’t work and that Abe shouldn’t be selfish!
Time will tell if Abe and Valerie can indeed make their relationship work, or will they have to end it.
Will Sheila and Abe form a greater bond in Valerie’s absence?
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?
