New role.

One time “Days of our Lives” star Maree Cheatham (ex-Marie; ex-Charlene, “General Hospital;” ex-Stephanie, “Search for Tomorrow”) has been cast in Tyler Perry’s primetime series “The Haves and the Have Nots.” Fans can look for her playing a nosy neighbor named Pearl. The actress will be making her first appearance on the show in June. Her role will be recurring for at least five episodes. Cheatham was one of the original cast members of “Days” and starred on the soap from 1965 until 1973. Since then, she has been a familiar face to TV audiences, appearing on “Hart of Dixie,” “Caroline in the City,” and “The West Wing” and many other shows.

“The Haves and the Have Nots” charts the intersection of three families in Savannah, Georgia. It airs on OWN. Please check your local listings for when it will be airing in your area.
