In a post on Instagram, Hartley teased her new show saying, “Netflix & Chill with me 😉 March 22nd! Trailer in my bio. I had my work cut out for me with this group 😬😅🏠 *My family moved and I started a new school in 9th grade. So I was the new freshman trying to fit in. This experience felt a lot like that only I have better clothes.” She initially became a realtor to negotiate and protect her own interests, but quickly found a real passion for the profession. She has been featured twice in the Los Angeles Times for representing significant estates and has also received recognition from in publication as a neighborhood expert.
Recently Hartley returned to Days of our Lives as Jordan Ridgeway. Her character, a previously good girl who only sought to protect her brother Ben Weston from their abusive father Clyde Weston, has undergone a major transformation. A recent car accident brought back past trauma and memories of the car accident that killed her mother and unborn baby brother, and it was revealed it was a suicide attempt to spare herself and mother more abuse at her father’s hands. She returned to Salem in order to deal with her brother Ben, who she felt had become similar to their father and was a danger to everyone. When she was caught after kidnapping Ciara Brady and Charlotte DiMera, and trying to kill Kate Roberts, she was remanded to Bayview. Hartley is married to Justin Hartley of This Is Us, Passions and The Young and the Restless.
