Days of Our LivesDays of Our Lives

Thief, drug addict, embezzler… Theresa Donovan can check off all those squares and more on her list of crimes and misdemeanors on Days of Our Lives (DOOL).

The brazen wench is heading back to Salem in a few weeks, which means the town’s citizens should be on high alert.

Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) penchant for stirring up trouble is sure to kick into high gear, when she finds out her sister Eve (Kassie DePaiva) and ex, Brady (Eric Martsolf), have been hitting the sheets.

In honor of Theresa’s big bad return, here’s a look at her most outrageous crimes.

Conning A Con
Ex-con Vargas didn’t stand a chance when he hooked up with Theresa. She used him for drugs and stole all his money.

Then, she followed that up by flirting with a stranger on their date, which led to Vargas attacking the guy. The cops were called, and they arrested and sent him back to jail when they found coke in his pocket that Theresa planted there.

Cash Flow
Even Salem University Hospital wasn’t immune to Theresa’s schemes and scams. While working there, she stole money from the petty cash fund. A few months later, she was at it again, this time trying to buy gift cards with hospital bucks.

Blackmail 101
After Theresa nearly overdosed, JJ summoned Daniel (Shawn Christian) to save her. Theresa thanked JJ by blackmailing him.

Knowing he was on probation, she threatened to expose a video of JJ smoking weed unless he did her bidding. That bidding included buying her drugs and feeding her information on Daniel.

Aiding and Abetting
Realizing Liam was obsessed with Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and behind the fake photos posted of her, Theresa helped his cause by giving him a key to Jennifer’s estranged beau’s Daniel’s apartment.

Soon, Daniel began arriving at the hospital loopy and opiates were found in his system – opiates that Liam had put in his protein shakes. Liam was eventually found out, but Theresa’s part in his plot was never exposed.

Power of the Poker
John (Drake Hogestyn) fumed when he found out about Theresa’s Vegas wedding to Brady, so she offered to walk away from him — for $1 million.

Upon realizing John was taping their conversation, Theresa lashed out by clobbering him over the head with a fireplace poker. Then, she orchestrated the scene to look like Brady was the culprit and convinced him he’d attacked his own father.
