Days of Our Lives Comings And Goings: Marilyn McCoo Reprises Role – Lani’s Mom Is Back
Marilyn McCoo reprises her role as Tamara Price, 32 years after she was last seen on “Days of Our Lives.” McCoo debuted the character back in 1986 and played Lani Price’s (Sal Stowers) mom until 1987. McCoo is set to return to the soap on Nov. 1.
Viewers may recall that Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) and Lani’s wedding is coming up. It’s likely that Tamara will be back in town to attend her daughter’s wedding. Additionally, this isn’t the first wedding that Tamara has attended. She sang “Up Where We Belong” on her college friend, Marlena Evans’ (Deidre Hall) wedding with Roman Brady (Josh Taylor).
McCoo’s real-life husband, Billy Davis Jr., will also appear on the sudser. This is not the pair’s first time to work together. They both got cast on “Santa Barbara” back in 1985.
The couple was the singers of the hit single “You Don’t Have To Be A Star (To Be In My Show)” in 1976. It sold more than 1 million copies and became certified gold. Apart from that, the song earned McCoo and Davis a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals in 1977.
Perhaps the couple would perform at Lani’s wedding. Who knows?
