Days of our Lives spoilers: What Happens Next in Salem?
Vanessa Williams plays Valerie Grant, the mother of Eli Grant (Lamon Archey). The character debuted in the 70s and in 2016, after a decades long absence, Williams was cast in the role.
Valerie is a cardiologist and she came to Salem to help save the life of Abe Carver (James Reynolds). At one point Valerie rekindled her past romance with Abe despite strong disapproval from his teenage son.
In 2017 the news was shared that Eli’s dad suddenly died and at that time the truth came out that Valerie had secretly given birth to his son, Eli.
Back in the day Valerie’s romance with David was the first interracial love story in daytime television history and it was a controversial plot at the time.
Today Valerie comes and goes from Salem. Her romance with Abe did not pan out although many fans were rooting for her to have a lasting connection with her son’s wife’s father. Eli married Lani Price (Sal Stowers) and they had recently had twins. Instead of Valerie hooking up with Abe it appears that her sister Paulina Price (Jackee Harry) will have that honor. Paulina recently came to town and has done nothing but stir the pot, coming on to Abe like a teenager in you know what.
