I thought Nelson said they wrote a lot of stuff... not just lines but scenes and scenes...

Also, just because you quote one source in a story, doesn't mean it's your only one! U need two to confirm a story or a fact. The only Higley involvement is that she complained to the WGA, and Ken Corday agreed with her complaints. There's a tad more to the story in this Friday's SUDS about Corday's involvement.
I have no doubt that Higley complained to the WGA that action lends creditibilty to the whole situation.
I also don't doubt the story is true, its just the fact that its all been brought to light when the ratings are on the decline and viewers are losing interest. It deflects the blame away from Higley and makes her into the victim.
I still have not heard that anything that was done is really any different than usual. Scenes are constantly being rewritten sometimes, perhaps always when Reilly was writing, without the writers involvement. Actors often try to change things they don't like, we've heard that from them directly. Actors try to fix things that they feel aren't in keeping with their character or history and many times we as fans expect them to do just that. So what about this is different?
I still see this as a way for Higley to divert attention away from her lousy performance as HW. If Days were to fire her now they would probably have more problems with the WGA although it would make the fans very happy.
I'm on Higley's side. The Diva and Scott needs to realize that Dena is there for a reason. She was hired to write for Days.
