I don't think Dee lied, Ellie. I don't think the show even told her. I do think that was the reason but they wouldn't want it getting out anyway. They try their best to cover up their financial mismanagement, although they clearly do a poor job of it LOL. I do think Dee kind of knows now though but at that time I don't think she did.

We will have to disagree about 1986. I see similarities but moving on...
The writers seem to be driving that point home and I do think having Marlena leave twice (the real reason, and I know Dee or the show never mentioned this, was they knew they had to use Dee alot later and wanted to make sure she didn't go over guarantee)
I'm curious, since you've posted that so many times (and it's not correct) - do you think Deidre was lying when she told SOD that the time off was for no reason? I mean, she's worked in the business over 30 years, and she knows how guarantees work. Why would she have said that to SOD? She's certainly had time off before because of her guarantee - I'm not denying that. But she's never said previously that any of the time off because of her guarantee was for no reason. (Oh, and I'm referring to Marlena's second trip to Colorado. Marlena's first trip was because Deidre took a week off in March for her kids' school vacation.)
Having said that, it is possible for actors to lie. I don't care who it is. Maybe Dee was told not to say anything. Who knows. I have my faves too but even I know and understand that they lie at times. It's part of the business. There is just some things shows don't want out and, in some cases, some things actors and actresses don't want out as well.
