Oh, I had always feeling Corday is very nice and friendly as person. He is not the best producer in the world but from all we know he treats his people very well, thatīs probably why he never has trouble to lure them back. This is tough times and the genre is dying, he has to try everything to keep the ship above water as long as possible. Itīs not easy for anyone. But I donīt think there is bad blood between him and Frances or whoever else.

Seriously, bitch about anything with Days..But don't bitch that they aren't making the effort to use Francis Reid..The woman is 94 years old...Do any of you plan to be working at the time, let alone be alive??? And being an actor on a soap is not an easy job..Like Phoenix said, i think they would definitely use her more if they could, but she's not able to work and the process it self is probably very hard for her now....So they are just hoping to get her for the big holidays, so the Horton traditions can continue..
I agree, but I also think itīs time to work in her real age and real health status into the show more. I mean, many times they are still talking about Alice like she is perfectly healthy and taking care of her grand grand grand children. Thatīs stupid. Everybody knows how fragile Frances really is.
I also agree they should try to visit her in her home/wherever she is now. Letīs say the show admits Alice had to be put in the care center too and few important Hortonīs decides to visit her on christmas, while in reality the scene will tape at Franceīs. Itīs nothing impossible. And it will prepare people for the inevitable.
That is a good thought, although how would Frances take that? They just need to tread carefully with her. I'm sure Ken Corday could care less after she blasted him (bless her heart. Go, Frances!!). It's best to be handled by her family and her medical professionals as which route to take. I am curious as to how Corday does treat her or regard her after she spoke her mind. He doesn't like cold hard truth, I don't think.
94 and still trying.......That in itself takes a lot of courage and tenacity. And that's why we love her. But, it's time we consider Frances the woman instead of Alice the character.
It's so cool to see all the Frances love here!.
