The annual Nurses’ Ball event is filmed over a matter of days and Wright said “When we shoot that, there’s a lot of time for chit-chatting and all of our stuff is stashed under the table — your water, your phone and we’re sitting on our scripts.” She shared that she and Zeman “had five days that week of sitting and hanging out … from eight in the morning until nine o’clock at night. It was such a gift.”
Also at Carly and Bobbi’s table for the event was Carly’s daughter Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy) and her bestie Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali).
Wright said “The four of us sat together so I was like, ‘Jackie, tell them this story or that story!’ She had travelled the world and had the most incredible life experiences, both on and off camera.”
