Eve believed Kim broke up her parents.

Eventually Eve got into trouble with the law after stealing a car and hitting Sarah Horton, and she revealed Shane was her father. Shane took Eve in as his daughter, though she continued to cause problems for Kimberly.

Kimberly wasn't the only one Eve caused problems for. Eve had a crush on Frankie Brady, but his heart belonged to Jennifer Horton. While Jen and Frankie were apart Frankie had an affair with Paula Carson, the women who ran the Teen Crisis Hotline Frankie worked on. Eve learned about the affair and exposed it after Jen and Frankie had reconciled, causing more trouble between Frankie and Jen. Eve's plan backfired when Frankie eventually left Salem in 1988.

Shane adopted Eve but she was soon forced back into prostitution by her old pimp Nick Corelli. Eve called Kimberly for help, and as a result Kimberly was attacked and lost her baby. Eve was also assaulted and a slash to her face from a knife left her with a permanent scar. Shane soon learned that Eve's mother was Gabriel Pascal, note Emma Donovan. An upset Kimberly left Salem to sort through her life.

Later that year Eve was attacked by the Riverfront Knifer, Harper Devereaux. Eve survived the attack, but as a result was left with a knife scar across her cheek.

In 1988 Nick decided to help Eve gain back her self confidence. Nick arranged for Eve to pose on the cover of a teen fashion magazine. Eve was thrilled, and she was even more thrilled when a group of boys from her school showed an interest in her. What Eve didn't know was that Harris, the boy she liked, had made a bet with his friend Jake to see how long it would take to score with a hooker. When Eve learned the truth she tried to commit suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills. Eve lived, but wanted revenge. Eve an Nick set the boys up at a party with drugs and alcohol, and then turned them into the police. Later Jake and his friends kidnaped Eve and left Nick a note to meet them out of town. Outside of town Nick and Jake played a game of chicken, and Nick's car went over a cliff and exploded.

Eve grieved over Nick but when Nick left everything in his will to her suspicion fell upon her. Eve ran away, but crashed her car. She was rescued and brought to an old deserted mansion by a man named Eddie. Eddie knew the mansion had belonged to Nick Corelli and he was searching for some old money Nick had hidden there. When Eve happened to find an old key Eddie took Eve to the bank where they attempted to open a safe deposit box. Eve managed to drop a note as to where she was being held captive. Nick, who was also living at his old mansion helped Shane rescue Eve. Eddie however escaped returned to the mansion to try and find the rest of the money. Eve had returned in hopes of finding the man who had helped her before, not knowing it was Nick. Steve, Kayla, and Nick were waiting for Eddie at the mansion, but he managed to elude them once again. Nick, Steve, and Kayla were charged with conspiring to hide Harper's money, but where later let off.

Even eventually learned the man in the mask was Nick. Nick wanted Eve to have the scar on her cheek removed, but she only agreed to have the operation if Nick had his badly burned face repaired as well. Both agreed, but in the operating room Eddie showed up and threatened to kill Eve if Nick didn't turn over Harper's money to him. Eddie however was shot and killed by Shane. Both Nick and Eve underwent surgery and their painful scars were removed.

Afterwards Nick gave Eve a job singing at Wings, the nightclub he had bought. Eve was in love with Nick, and to discourage her he married April Ramirez.

In 1990 a vicious storm hit Salem and left Faith paralyzed. Eve Donovan, who was in love with Faith's current boyfriend Scott, plotted to keep the two of them apart. Eve brought Scott's shadowy record producing scams and secrets to Faith's attention in hopes that it would cause problems. Eve's plan failed miserable. Faith walked again and when Scott was accepted to medical school, Faith and Scott left Salem.

Nick Corelli had left a fortune to Eve, but she could not claim any of the money until she married. Eve asked Frankie to marry her, but when he rejected her she turned to Jack. Jack needed the money to save the Spectator and agreed to marry Eve in 1991. Later, Eve and Jack's marriage was annulled. When Eve was wanted as a suspect in Nick's murder, she fled Salem. It was Frankie who came after her and convinced her to return to Salem because she had been exonerated of any crime.

In 1991, Brian Scofield found himself investigating Nick Corelli's murder as well. Brian & Melissa, Eve & Frankie, and Jack & Jen boarded a theme train on which Johnny Corelli had stashed the weapon that was used to kill his brother Nick. When they found the weapon, Johnny Corelli detached the car they were in and it rolled down a mountain pass and derailed into a cold forest. The couples split up and all tried to find their way out of the valley they found themselves trapped in. Eve eventually split away from Frankie and met up with a young woman named Molly Brinker. Molly drew Eve a map and Eve lead the party to a safe location and took the credit on her own. A helicopter retrieved the stranded Salemites, but Eve was seriously injured when she fell from the helicopter ladder. She lived and was treated like a star in Salem until Molly showed up and pushed Eve off of her heroine pedestal. Frankie had told Eve he loved her, but after he learned that Eve had taken the credit for saving them he once again distanced himself from her.

Eventually, Frankie was called to work for a charity organization in Africa helping the sick and hungry. Eve, who was madly in love with Frankie, gave up all the pleasures of society and departed Salem with Frankie.

She had been brainwashed by the Dragon to kill Bo and Hope. Emma returned to Salem, and Kim backed away from a now married Shane.

Kim's blindness was stress induced, and in an attempt to get over Shane Kim became involved with Victor Kiriakis, the new wealthy man in Salem. Kim's eyesight returned, and once Shane was divorced from Emma she and Shane resumed their romance.

In 1985 Kimberly Brady came into the possession of a roll of film that contained some prints to the location of a treasure that Victor Kiriakis, and Stefano DiMera where after, which would again come into play years down the road. In Miami Bo, Hope, Kim, and Shane were all out to destroy Victor's plan. Shane had been imprisoned by Victor, but Kimberly slept with Victor in order to spare his life. Shane escaped, and managed free Bo and Hope who were trapped with an explosive that was meant to end their lives. Later Victor Kiriakis, Savannah Wilder, and Steve "Patch" Johnson were arrested for their parts in the crime syndicate in Salem. They were all freed when Victor blackmailed Larry Welch into taking the fall for everything. Victor knew Larry killed Megan, and used it against him.

By the end of the year Shane and Kimberly became engaged, but Kimberly soon learned she was pregnant, and she feared Victor was the child's father.

In 1986 Shane and Kimberly became engaged, but Kimberly hid the fact that she thought her child was Victor's. One day Shane heard Kimberly talking her about her fears and quickly broke off the engagement. Later when tests where done to determine the father Emma Donovan Marshall switched the results, and everyone believed Victor was the father.

During a trip to West Virginia, in hopes of reuniting, Kimberly went into labor in a remote cabin in the woods. Shane delivered the baby, and he pledged his love for Kimberly and the child, and they planned to marry even though they believed Victor was Andrew's father. This news infuriated Emma, who tricked Kimberly into signing adoption papers. Emma took little Andrew and planned to sell him on the black market, but was eventually caught, and pleaded insanity and said she was still in love with Shane. However, Andrew wasn't found, and Shane and Kimberly split up.

When Emma Donovan was found dead Kimberly was arrested and charged for the crime. Kimberly was innocent, and Shane worked to free her. Eventually Shane learned that Barbara Stewart had adopted Andrew from Emma. Barbara tried to flee town, but was killed when she crashed her car. He also learned his old ISA Partner Gillian Foster had killed Emma and framed Kimberly in hopes of breaking up the couple. Andrew was returned to Kim and Shane, and the two reunited.

On May 4 1987 Kim and Shane Donovan married.

Later that year Andrew was hit by a car and rushed to the hospital. When a blood transplant was needed it was discovered that Victor could not possibly be Andrew's father, Shane was indeed his real father.

Kimberly soon befriended a young girl who called herself Eve Baron. Kimberly took her under her wing, and eventually gave her a job baby-sitting Andrew. Little did Kim know Eve was out to destroy Kim and Shane's marriage. Eve was the daughter of Emma and Shane, the daughter Shane never knew. She was determined to break up Kim's marriage to her father because she blamed Kim for her parents divorce, and in a way her mother's death. Eventually Eve got into trouble with the law and admitted to Shane she was his daughter, and Shane took him into his home.

Kimberly was also pregnant, but the stress from Eve put a strain on her baby. Shane adopted Eve but she was soon forced back into prostitution by her old pimp Nick Corelli. Eve called Kimberly for help, and as a result Kimberly was attacked and lost her baby. Eve was also assaulted and a slash to her face from a knife left her with a permanent scar. Shane soon learned that Eve's mother was Gabriel Pascal, note Emma Donovan. An upset Kimberly left Salem to sort through her life. Shane eventually filed for divorce when he began to have feelings toward his ex- partner Gabriel after he learned she was Eve's mother.

Kimberly returned later that year, and when Eve was attacked by the Riverfront Knifer Kimberly decided to go undercover as a prostitute to catch him. Kimberly was attacked, and lost the child she was carrying. When Shane learned what Kim was doing he helped her, and as a result they reunited.

Later when Kayla recalled that Harper was the Riverfront Knifer both Kim and Kayla were taken hostage by Harper. They were saved by Steve Johnson, and Harper was arrested.

Shane and Kim renewed their vows in 1988 and honeymooned in England. There Kim ran into a man she thought was Shane, only it turned out to be Shane's twin brother , Andrew "Drew" Donovan the III. Shane thought Drew was dead, but he had only been on a secret ISA mission. Drew returned to Salem with Shane and Kim, but Shane was suspicious of his brother. In the end it turned out that Drew was actually a crooked agent who was working for Stefano DiMera all along.

In 1989 Kim's husband Shane took a dangerous ISA assignment and was pronounced dead by the ISA. Kim took solace in Cal Winter's arms, and the night they made love Shane, who was very much alive but had amnesia, returned home to see his wife making love to another man in their bed.

Shane came home, only to be shot by his wife Kimberly. Kimberly thought Shane was an intruder because Cal had staged some phony break-ins and had given her a gun to protect herself with, it was all part of his plan to have Kimberly kill Shane. Shane survived and in the hospital he learned that his wife had shot him. Shane forgave Kimberly, but another obstacle came in their way. Kimberly was pregnant, and she believed the baby was Cal's, not knowing Cal had blackmailed a doctor on staff to alter the baby's paternity tests. Kimberly tried to secretly have an abortion, but Shane learned about the baby and stopped her. The baby was too much, and Shane and Kimberly broke up.

Kimberly left Salem and gave birth to baby Jeannie a few months later. When Kimberly returned to Salem, Cal Winters broke out of jail. Desperate to have Kimberly he kidnapped Kimberly, and her sister Kayla. Shane managed to save them both and Cal was taken into custody. Kimberly became suspicious about Jeannie and concocted a story that Jeannie had been hurt and she needed a blood transplant from her closest blood relative. Kimberly told this to Cal, and said that her blood type was different from Jeannie's so she couldn't donate the blood. Cal broke down and told Kimberly that Shane was Jeannie's father. Shane bonded with Jeannie, but it wasn't enough to reunite Shane and Kimberly. Kimberly eventually left Salem and Shane plunged himself into his work.

Kimberly returned in 1991 and was angry with Kayla for putting the moves on Shane. Things got complicated when Chief Tarrigton assigned Kim to work with Shane investigating Lawrence Alamain, who they believed was spreading a virus that was killing off ISA agents.. Kimberly worked with Lawrence to discover the cause of his blackouts. Lawrence had been taking medication all his life which he believed was for a blood pressure problem. It was actually suppressing the memories of watching his younger brother, Forrest, drown in the family swimming pool. Lawrence's parents felt it would be better that he not remember that traumatic day. While counseling and spying on Lawrence, Kimberly discovered a secret room in his house which had security camera tapes from every room in his house. Kimberly located the tape on which Lawrence confessed to raping Jennifer, but she couldn't expose Lawrence because her brother Bo was sick with the virus Lawrence was spreading and she couldn't blow his trust. Kimberly allowed Jack Devereaux to find the tape and Lawrence was sent to prison. Eventually Bo was cured and Kim left town because she realized that any chance for a reconciliation with Shane was now gone.

Kimberly returned in 1992 with her fiance, film producer Phillip Collier. While crossing the street one day, Kimberly was hit head on by Roger Lombard, a drunk driver. Kimberly went into a coma, but came out of it. However, when Kimberly heard the song "Somebody to Love" by Jefferson Airplane, her split personality Lacey took control. Years ago when Kimberly was molested by her uncle, "Somebody to Love" was playing on the radio and Kimberly formed a second personality, Lacey, who took the abuse and hid the pain from Kimberly. As Lacey, Kimberly often hung out at various bars. However, one night Rusty Hustan attempted to rape Lacey at knife point. Lacey defended herself and Randy ended up falling on his own Knife. Lacey took the knife and the blue dress she was wearing and hid them. Kimberly had no recollection of the murder and she was disturbed when she found the knife and bloody dress later on. Kimberly confided in Phillip, who knew something was wrong. Kimberly's third personality, Clare, took over and revealed herself to Phillip. Phillip taped Clair getting fresh with him and handcuffing him to his bed and then making love to him. When Roman Brady had the evidence he needed to arrest his sister, Clare took over and shot Roman. Roman lived, but had to undergo brain surgery to remove the bullet. Phillip used the tape he had made as evidence to prove that Kimberly was not herself. Kimberly was committed and eventually released when Marlena rid her of her alternate personalities.
