Patrika Darbo is back, and ready to stir the kettle

The mother from hell is back!  And she is ready to stir the kettle and create chaos and havoc, the two things she best knows how to do . But to Patrika Darbo, who plays Nancy Wesley on Days of our Lives, all her intentions are of good nature and she means no harm.

“Me the mother from hell? Oh honey…I have to tell you, everything I do is with the best intentions,” Darbo laughs. “I’m a mother and I would do anything for my daughter. It’s like the ying and yang. We may go back and forth, but I am a loving mom and full of good intentions. I am all heart.”

Darbo has been back now a few weeks and she has a purpose and that is to make someone’s life a living hell. Her daughter Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) has a son and wants to get back with the baby’s father. The problem?
