Judi Evans has played many iconic daytime roles over the years. Her most recent is a reprisal of Bonnie Lockhart on Days of our Lives. As the actress celebrates her birthday on July 12, we’re taking a look at some of Bonnie’s more outrageous moments.
Bonnie and Mickey and Maggie
Schemer Bonnie Lockhart set her sights on the well off Mickey Horton and even landed him. After they were married, Mickey’s thought-to-be-dead wife Maggie Horton returned but Bonnie wasn’t about to give up her cushy lifestyle. The three tried living together until Mickey decided he wanted to only be with the love of his life, Maggie.
Bonnie has pulled many outrageous stunts in Salem, but the most shocking might be going to prison for her daughter Mimi. In a rare move, Bonnie put the well-being of her daughter first when she took the rap for the death of Mimi’s father, who Mimi accidentally killed years prior.
With the help of Anjelica Deveraux and her BFF Hattie Adams, Bonnie escaped prison while her doppelganger, Adrienne Johnson, was swapped in to replace her behind bars. As part of Anjelica’s plan, Bonnie broke up with Adrienne’s boyfriend Lucas Horton and reunited with Justin Kiriakis. Bonnie was then to break Justin’s heart so Anjelica could swoop in to pick up the pieces. The plan also allowed Bonnie to move into the Kiriakis mansion where she could take revenge on her old rival and Victor Kiriakis’ new wife, Maggie.
Sex and death
Even though Bonnie, as Adrienne, broke up with Lucas, she was drawn to him. She even slept with him one night when he was drunk. Anjelica wasn’t pleased when she found them together and argued with Bonnie, which led to Anjelica having a fatal heart attack. To cover, Hattie and Bonnie put Anjelica in bed with a passed out Lucas making it look like she died while having sex with him.
To avenge Maggie for taking Mickey from her, Bonnie, still as Adrienne, blackmailed Victor into divorcing Maggie and marrying her. However, her scheme was exposed when Victor, Maggie, Brady, and Justin took away her leverage. To further spoil her wedding day, Steve showed up to reveal “Adrienne” was really Bonnie.
Lucas is not the father
Bonnie returned to Salem yet again to claim Lucas was the father of her baby. She used the child to force Lucas to convince Adrienne to drop the charges against her. However, the child was really Mimi’s secret baby with Lucas’ brother Rex Brady.
