Homewrecking is a tough one. There aren’t very many couples that have not had a run in with a homewrecker in Salem. To medal in this fine Days-lympics sport, you have to take homewrecking to a new level. It’s not good enough to have an affair with a married person, you have to really get creative. So here goes with the gold, silver and bronze in homewrecking:
Maybe he is the grossest homewrecker. He forced Sami to have sex with him to save her fiance Lucas. He had grief sex with Sami when she was married to Rafe. He created a Rafe2 body double who also raped Sami while she was married to Rafe. Of course his accent and smile make us forget those things… but they happened. He also wrecked his own homes by having affairs with Taylor and Sami. So yeah, this guy isn’t exactly Mr. Monogamy. (Shout out to @Reshie79 for advocating that EJ medal in homewrecking- you were so right).
So maybe I am obsessed with Vivian since she left, but you have to admit she had one of the most creative homewrecking scenarios on Days. By stealing Kate’s embryo and having it implanted in herself, she managed to steal Victor away from Kate and ruin their happy home. Kate eventually won back Victor and custody of Philip, but you have to give Vivian some points for creativity. Not to mention the more recent burying Maggie alive fiasco. Yeah, Vivian takes homewrecking to a whole new level.
There are a lot of people who could take this “prize”. Carly slept in Hope’s bed (you almost had me convinced @MikeBise, but I think Carly lacked a little creativity), Philip impregnated Chloe and let her pass off the baby as Dr. Dan’s, Taylor stole her sister’s man, Marlena cheated on Roman with John (so true @ZamboniFan), and even Mike Horton had flying carpet sex with Carrie. But Sami again gets the prize because of creativity. She managed to convince Austin they had sex by drugging him and pretending to be Carrie, then she convinced Austin to raise their child, who of course turned out to be Lucas’. That takes some chutzpah. She also has a penchant for ruining her own home. At least Sami can blame it all on her mommy issues- no one wants to see their mom having sex, especially with someone who isn’t her husband.
Let us know in the comments how wrong we got it. We are feeling conflicted even as we post this. Check back later for more Days-lympic events!
