Dinahís parents are Ross Marler & Vanessa Chamberlain, but that
by whom she was raised. Given up for adoption because Vanessa was a
teenager, Dinah was raised in the carnival. She originally came to
Springfield as a teenager. As a young girl, she was first portrayed as a
tomboy and then changed into a naÔve young lady, wanting to do good
things for other people. She even stuck by her friend, Harley Cooper,
when she had her baby, and again when she gave her up for adoption. She
left town soon after, breaking up with Alan-Michael; she moved to Europe
Dinah returned to Springfield a changed person. It was 1995, and she
came back during what her parents thought was a school break. They were
shocked when they learned that she had dropped out. It was during this
time that people began to notice her new, spoiled, rich-girl attitude.
She was also upset about her relationship with her mother, and she wanted
money. She ended up playing her mother against her stepfather and
tried to turn her father against his wife, Blake. In need of money,
Dinah realized that once she got married, she would receive her trust
fund. While lashing out at her family, she married Blakeís father, Roger,
who promptly stole her trust fund money.
It was around this time that Rogerís son, Hart, returned to town. He and
Dinah worked together to try and convince everyone that Roger was
insane in a ploy to get Dinahís money back. The two fell in love and
had a chaotic relationship.
When things between she and Hart looked like they were over, and that he
was going to leave her for another woman, she went to great lengths to
keep him with her. She became pregnant and led him to believe it
was his child, when in fact it was another manís. She ended up having a
miscarriage, which she took understandably hard.
A few years later, Cassie found out the truth about Dinahís pregnancy
and confronted her. Not wanting her only connection to Hart to be
ruined, she grabbed a gun with the intention of keeping Cassie quiet.
Unfortunately, Hart walked in and was hit by the bullet. He died, and
she ended up fleeing town. Her mother arranged for her to fly to Europe
and stay with nuns.
No one heard from Dinah until the summer of 2004. Cassie found out that
someone was impersonating her in Europe. It turned out to be Dinah, and
the viewers discovered that Jeffery OíNeill had rescued Dinah from a
European prison in exchange for her impersonation of Cassie.
Meanwhile, back in Springfield, her father was urging her to turn
herself in as she was still wanted for Hartís murder. She ended up
returning to town in a disguise. She made friends with Hartís son, R.J.,
and it came to light that she was in town when she rescued he & Cassie
from a fire at Hartís old farm.
Dinah was sent to jail. She blackmailed both Jeffrey OíNeill &
Edmund so that she could get the charges dropped and be a free
woman. She convinced Cassie that she was sorry for killing Hart, so
she was set free.
Always a manipulative woman, Dinah even played with Cassieís head when
it came to light that her daughter had been seduced by a family member.
Pretending to be a club owner, she called Cassie, inquiring about Tammy
getting a job as a stripper in Chicago.
She vowed to take everything from Cassie that she never had, and she
had feelings for Cassieís husband, Edmund Winslow.
She teamed up with Jonathan Randall in order to help
destroy the Winslow marriage. which worked. Cassie called
off procedures that would give her and Edmund a baby.
Her family staged an intervention for her when they realized
that she still wasnít adjusting to life in Springfield. Upset that her
mother couldnít be bothered to make the trip from Europe, Dinah didnít
take the intervention well. She claimed that she was a sitting duck and
that her family simply wanted to tell her all the ways in which she was
a bad person.
Having been told she was unlovable on more than one occasion by
numerous people, Dinah vowed to change her image. In an effort to do
this, she has started a new career at Spaulding Enterprises as
Harley's right-hand woman. Dinah also began a relationship with A.C.
Mallet, and she has grown in many ways. She surprised many people with
her newfound patience, understanding, and hard-working nature. With
this change has also gained her the friendships of Harley, Gus, Olivia,
Frank, Blake, and even her own mother.
Dinah and Mallet were on the verge of getting married when she was shot
in the head. Her personality changed drastically, and she got into
all sorts of trouble (including sleeping with her mother's husband).
Eventually Mallet moved on to Marina, and Dinah moved to a sweet
relationship with Shayne.
Dinah left town for a while and ran into Shayne, who was filled with
anger over his having lost his girlfriend, Lara, and the use of his
legs. Dinah helped him through all that after they both came
back to town. He walked again and let go of his past. It
turned out that Lara was Edmund's daughter, and he became obsessed
with avenging her death. Dinah found out that Lara had
Shayne's baby. She had helped Mallet and Marina adopt a baby,
which they named Henry, and that turned out to be Shayne and Lara's
baby. Dinah thought she had killed Edmund in defending Shayne
and Henry, but it turned out he wasn't really dead.
