Something unexpected happened on today’s episode of Days of our Lives, or was it unexpected? JJ (Casey Moss) and Eve (Kassie DePaiva) found themselves down in the dumps and together! First, JJ has just had a terrible fight with girlfriend Paige (True O’Brien) over her wanting to have sex with him! JJ keeps holding back, due to his conflicting emotions in part, because his father Jack was a rapist and Paige knows about it! Meanwhile, Eve is distraught after learning from the doctors that she can’t have her vocal chord surgery, and she will never be able to sing again. And that sets up the perfect recipe for these two characters to seek solace with each other … and, what do you know? They have hot sex!
Will JJ and Eve become an item or is it a one time fling? Will JJ become caught between mother and daughter? Will Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) lose her grip whenever she finds out what happened between her son and her arch-rival? On-Air On-Soaps caught with DAYS young star Casey Moss to get some answers, and to get the details on working with daytime favorite Kassie DePaiva in the steamy scenes!
The big game-changer! Eve and JJ have sex! What brought them together to have the hot steamy encounter?
CASEY: JJ and Paige had a terrible fight. He goes to her apartment to find her, and Eve was there. We start talking and Eve starts crying over the surgery she is suppose to get on her vocal chords as she won’t be able to sing anymore, and they both have been drinking.
So, she’s drunk, and he’s buzzed! That equals – sex on the soaps!
CASEY: Yup! We both feel alone at this time, and the music has this unstoppable attraction for them, and it holds them and gives them sexual tension, and they both connect that way. So they lock eyes, and stuff started happening!
What do you think the fans will say after the tryst? They wanted this to happen, you know that!
CASEY: It’s kind of crazy, because from the first episode people were saying, “Oh, my God. JJ and Eve are going to sleep together!”
Did you not play the attraction between you two charactes early on in your scenes with Kassie DePaiva? Did the producer/writers tell you to play that? It seemed very apparent to the viewers, when watching the two of you that there were sparks.
CASEY: No, we did not know! We did not know till Kassie and I were filming together for two to three weeks. Then, one of the directors told us, “You know, you guys are really attracted to each others, and you got to kind of turn up the heat a bit.” We had no idea. We were blinded by that, and we were playing it more and more, but I didn’t feel, or see a spark at the beginning. Apparently, everyone else did … which is kind of interesting.
How do you feel about the set-up of Kassie as Eve being the older woman, and you as JJ being the younger guy? Cougar romance! (Laughs)
CASEY: It’s actually been really comfortable working with Kassie, and we both have made it comfortable for each other. There is so much guilt that comes with this for JJ. It’s a complete nightmare. I am surprised Jennifer isn’t throwing up every second, because her children are going haywire! They are making the worst decisions, and that can only make a mother feel so guilty. It’s been a crazy storyline.
How was it for you when it was actually time to tape the sex scene with Kassie? Were you anxious?
CASEY: The day we were actually going to have the sex scene, we talked about it. It was very much like, “Wow. We are actually going to do this.” And the thing is, when the characters went there, it was “hate sex”! Kassie and I just had to go at it.
You know, “hate sex” can potentially turn into major love story on the soaps! Just sayin’!
CASEY: I am very excited to see how the fans react to the sex scene, because I am pretty sure they are going to love it. They are looking for it. They want it! (Laughs)
When was True O’Brien (Paige) in the loop on this … that you would be having sex in story with her on-screen mom?
CASEY: All she could say was, “Oh, my God.” That is pretty much all she could say. She was pretty much freaked out by it.
So, Paige is going to have to turn to someone else for comfort, right?
CASEY: Possibly! I am hoping she turns to JJ’s friend Rory, because he hasn’t gotten any action on the show. (Laughs)
What has it been like working with daytime favorite, Kassie DePaiva (Eve)?
CASEY: She is lovely, and I adore her. I think Eve is an interesting character, because she has been hurt by a lot of men in her life, and instead of separating that between her and her daughter, she is putting them as one, sort of speak, meaning Eve got hurt by Jack and JJ is Jack’s son. Eve is assuming that JJ is going to hurt Paige, as Jack hurt Eve, back in the day. Eve is a complex character, for sure. She is going about everything the completely wrong way!
We thought from the very beginning, what better way to get back at Jennifer then to have JJ sleep with Jen’s arch-nemesis, Eve!
Isn’t that horrible? (Laughs)
What on earth is going to happen when JJ’s mom and Eve’s enemy, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), finds out about their liaison, and the rest of Salem?
CASEY: You guys are in for another ride that is all I can say. We will see what happens!
So, what did you think about Eve and JJ’s sexcapade? Were you rooting for it to happen? Were you appalled? What do you think will happen next? Will these two spend months covering up what they did, or could they end up in between the sheets, yet again? Weigh-in below!
