After an Infuriating Incident, Days of Our Lives’ Victoria Konefal Lets Loose: ‘If You’re Gonna Rob Me, at Least Do It Right’
Some days, everything just goes wrong.
Things may have calmed down for Days of Our Lives‘ Ciara since MarDevil handed the reigns over to JoDevil, but Konefal’s life is apparently packed full of excitement — just not the kind that anyone would remotely want. Yesterday, to be blunt, was not Victoria Konefal’s day. But at least she’s okay! That’s what’s important, as frustrating as the rest is.
The actress shared a series of Instagram stories last night after her car was apparently broken into and stripped bare. Completely bare.
“To the [bleep]s who broke into my car and robbed me clean of everything — including my TV! — that’s some pretty [bleep]y craftsmanship, bub,” a ticked off, Konefal said, pointing to a wire where the television once was. “You missed a spot. Listen, if you’re gonna rob me, at least do it right.”
She then zoomed in for a pic of the gaping hole in the roof of her car with that lone wired sticking out and wrote, “How embarrassing for them.”
The whole incident was clearly infuriating, but at least Konefal didn’t lose her sense of humor. Sometimes that’s about all we can do to make it through life. We’re guessing, though, that even that was tested. Because the miserable news didn’t end with the break-in.
Afterwards, Ciara’s portrayer put a story up with a photo of her car, hood up, engine exposed and inside what looked to be a mechanic’s garage. She wrote, “Gorgeous, gorgeous girls have engine fires” as, over it all, Ella Fitzgerald’s “It’s a Lovely Day Today” played.
Okay, at this point we’re just going to commend the actress, because we would have let loose a string of [bleeps] that would have made Yellowstone‘s Beth Dutton blush. Hopefully things turned around afterwards. After all, where else could they go but up?
A couple hours later, Konefal shared a pic of a sign with “I am grateful for…” written on it. It was surrounded by sticky notes full of things like “friendship,” “LA food” and “meditation.” And honestly that sounds like the best way to focus on the positive and try to let go of the negative. We still would have let loose a few screams, though…
Before you head out, why not take a moment to do some reflecting on the positive yourself, and check out a gallery of Ciara and Ben’s touching reunion, fit for Shakespeare himself.
<p>If there are two things we know Rhodes has been keeping Ciara well-stocked in, it’s hair supplies (’cause our girl looks incredible) and reading materials. Believing her to be lacking in a basic familiarity with the classics, Ciara’s captor has provided her with several… including <em>Romeo and Juliet</em>. </p>
<p>It should surprise absolutely no one that when Ciara dreamed herself and Ben into the era of Romeo and Juliet, her beau looked downright gorgeous in the period garb. Even the statue that is literally carved out of stone had to marvel at the cut of Ben’s cheekbones, which are downright timeless. </p>
<p>Well, if you have to ask, you probably haven’t been paying attention. Meanwhile, we feel like we need to warn Ciara to be careful, because that particular window looks an <em>awful </em>lot like the one through which Marlena once pushed Kristen! </p>
<p>Victoria Konefal’s Ciara could not have looked more beautiful as she gazed down at her Romeo. “We’re using the fantasy element,” says headwriter Ron Carlivati, “to give the audience the scenes they’re craving. They want to see Ben and Ciara together, even if it’s not yet reality.” </p>
<p>The staging for Ciara’s fantasy sequences was at times incredibly simple yet stirringly dramatic. The black background lent a starkness to the moody candlelight, helping add a sense of fantasy to the sequences. </p>
<p>“We’ve shown that Ben and Ciara have a spiritual connection,” says Carlivati. “It’s something that is very in keeping with classic <em>Days of Our Lives </em>couples who’ve had that same sort of connection, including John and Marlena.” </p>
<p>“The audience obviously wants to see this couple together,” admits Carlivati. “But we couldn’t just have them reunite without explaining where she’s been all this time. So while we’re keeping them apart a while longer, we’re giving the audience the romance that they need to see at the same time.” </p>
<p>While not saying exactly how long Konefal will be on the canvas, Carlivati says this “is not one of those situations like we saw at Christmas, where Ciara appeared to Ben as a vision, and that was it. We’re telling an actual story.” </p>
<p>“One of the things I love about soaps is that you get to experience so many different things, all while playing the same role,” Konefal told us during an <a href="https://soaps.sheknows.com/days-of-our-lives/news/585665/days-of-our-lives-victoria-konefal-ciara-returning-whats-next/">exclusive chat</a> last year. “You never know what you’re going to get to do next, and that’s exciting.” </p>
