“In their mind, they’re doing it for the greater good.” recently talked with “Days of our Lives'” Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) about the men in her alter ego’s life, as well as the mayoral campaign that is heating things up in Salem. At this point, Jennifer is torn between Jack [Matthew Ashford] and Daniel [Shawn Christian]. Is she truly in love with both men? 

Melissa: You know what? I asked so many people, because I thought, ‘That’s not possible. How can that be possible?’ I had so many people say to me, ‘You know what? I’ve been in a situation like that where I loved two people and I didn’t know what to do.’ I was like, ‘Really? Tell me about it,’ because I don’t have a reality on that. I don’t know what that’s like. It was good to hear different people’s take on you can feel that way. It’s sort of sad and tragic because you think, oh my goodness, all three of these people are in the same boat of not wanting to hurt each other. How will she ultimately choose between them and do you see that happening any time soon?

Melissa: I have no idea. I wouldn’t want to be the writers right now. I just think it’s so hard. I have no idea how it’s going to pan out. I really don’t. It’s going to be interesting. And hard. It will be hard, hurtful, but I love working with two men who love their job and are so good at what they do. It makes my job really easy. What are the hurdles for Jennifer if she goes back to Jack?

Melissa: I guess just rebuilding. Just starting over and rebuilding. Which, they’ve loved each other for years, so it wouldn’t be a giant hurdle, I don’t think. They know each other really well, so it would just be a rebuilding time. What would the hurdles be if she went forward with Daniel?
