If soaps were stories about nice people doing nice things in a nice way, Days Of Our Lives would be pretty dull. Soaps need bad girls — and boys — to stir the pot and keep things hopping.
Salem has always been blessed with a sold number of vixens, going all the way back to rebellious teenager Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to the handful we all know Ariana will grow up to be. (Seriously, with the kind of childhood she’s had, how could she be anything but a smoldering ball of resentment?)
But, for now, we want to hear about your favorite bad girl of the moment. Here’s what over 8000 fans had to say:
It was no contest as 75% of you voted for Gabi (Camila Banus) as your fave. Ari’s mama! Coincidence? We don’t think so…She’s done everything from going to jail for a murder she did commit to going to jail for a murder she didn’t commit.
She’s tried to make Chad (Billy Flynn) believe Abigal (Kate Mansi) was going crazy, and now she’s considering teaming up with Brady (Eric Marstolf) to bring down Stefan (Brandon Barash). Gabi may be a lot of things…but dull isn’t one of them.
For 15% of the audience, though, Gabi is old news, and Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) is the future. She’s engaged in high-tech voter fraud…and she has gone with old-fashioned arson. Claire is truly a b&*%h for all seasons, and now she’s added immigration fraud to her resume!
Out With the Old
Only 10% of the fans voted for Eve (Kassie DePaiva). Maybe it’s because they’ve seen her shtick before. Convincing a guy with amnesia that he’s in love with her? Yawn. Been there, done that. And her politicking isn’t exactly endearing her to the fans either. Lock her up!
