On “Days Of Our Lives” this past week, Chanel Dupree DiMera had her heart broken when her husband, Johnny (while possessed by The Devil) broke up with her at their wedding reception. Raven Bowens (Chanel) did a phenomenal job displaying how shocked and devastated Chanel was when Johnny publicly dumped her. She was first in denial and disbelief followed by sadness and anger. Bowens took fans on Chanel’s emotional journey of heartbreak; after storming out on Johnny, Chanel pleads with Allie to keep her company. Bowens tugged at fans’ heartstrings when Chanel hugs Allie so tightly while she lets her tears flow. Challie (Chanel + Allie) fans were thrilled when Chanel and Allie finally gave into their feelings and slept together. Even though Chanel is deeply hurt by Johnny and has feelings for Allie, she doesn’t want to ruin Allie and Tripp’s relationship and so she tries to convince Allie to keep their one night stand a secret. Chanel stops by the DiMera mansion again to see Johnny and she throws her ring at him. Bowens has fantastic chemistry with both Carson Boatman (Johnny) and Lindsay Arnold (Allie) that it makes it nearly impossible for fans to choose who they want to see Chanel romantically involved with. What fans can agree on is that Bowens shines in every scene she’s in. Fans can’t wait to see what happens next for Chanel and they know that Bowens will deliver as always!
