Jay Back On DAYS
Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip) returned to work this week, though he reportedly cleared out his dressing room last week. But that doesn't mean it's for good. "Jay is still under contract," explains a setsider. "He had to come back." Negotiations between Johnson and the show are ongoing.

So now we go from "he stormed off" to "he's BACCCK" to "it's still up in the air".

DANG, these people make my head hurt!

I never thought that second report ("Jay is still Philip") meant anything other than he would finish out his contract; it told me nothing about whether he was negotiating a new one. If negotiations really are "ongoing," I'm curious how that affects other cast members, i.e., are they promising Jay there will be more money for him as the cast is winnowed down? If "everybody" has to sacrifice, and allegedly PR and KA have taken pay cuts (granted, I'm sure they made more, understandably) then I could see some hard feelings if Jay stays with the show but doesn't have to take a pay cut. I don't know, just thinking out loud. As I've said before, if he's going to be romantically involved with Melanie in any way I'd rather he was gone.
