“Days of Our Lives” is adding a new prisoner. While Hope serves time for Stefano DiMera’s murder, viewers will get to meet more of her fellow inmates, including one played by TLC member T-Boz. The singer will have an arc on the NBC soap opera through the winter.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the singer will be playing Sheila on “Days of Our Lives” for two months. It seems neither she nor Hope are getting released any time soon. That’s bad news for Hope because Sheila does not like her. A new clip shows Sheila confronting Hope in prison. It seems the tough inmate ripped apart Hope’s family photo, and it looks like she might want to tear Hope apart next.
Luckily, there are people fighting for Hope. She was sentenced to 25 years without parole for Stefano’s (Joseph Mascolo) murder, but Rafe (Galen Gering) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) are desperately searching for a way to help Hope get out of prison. A trailer for the fall episodes (seen at the top of this page) of “Days of Our Lives” also reveals that Hope will meet a familiar face behind bars: Marlena (Deidre Hall). Let’s hope Marlena is ready to fight off Sheila.
T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) obviously has plenty of experience in front of the camera with R&B group TLC, but her acting experience is limited. She has had small roles over the years on “Living Single” and “Black Dynamite,” but “DOOL” will be her longest acting role to date.
