Turns out Eve 'Jan' Plumb is the well-adjusted, 'boring' Brady
"I congratulate [Maureen McCormick] on her success. Not everybody gets a book on the New York Times best-sellers list. My book would be massively dull because I’m happy and healthy, and I’ve been painting a lot and had some success with that. You know, boring. Boring in the eyes of the media that want a carcass. I don’t consider my life to be boring at all. I consider my life to be massively fortunate.

I haven’t decided not to act anymore. I actually just did one day on DAYS OF OUR LIVES a couple of months ago. It’s one of those rare instances where I got an audition, and I actually got the job."

That is until February 2008, when the 43-year-old financial adviser allegedly made the admission to his wife. Garrison Colby was arrested and was released, but he had to wear an electric ankle bracelet that monitored his whereabouts. However, days before he was due in court on April 15, 2008, Colby cut the bracelet off and went on the lam.
