! Now, my next question is, who does jason47 rely on? Are his sources independent of daytimeconfidential?
I wish I could be less skeptical, and truly, if Philip had been getting a good story or at least if I didn't have to worry about Melanie being a love interest/iinterloper, I'd be thrilled to take it without cynicism or question that Jay had signed a new contract. However, I have a lot of complaints about current journalism in general (not just the soap press), and I find it strange that in this day of 24 hour news cycles it isn't the simplest thing in the world for the major soap organs to get a confirmation from the show that a new deal is in place. I would not be less inclined to buy SOD or SOW if their website said, "JKJ signs a new contract!" than if it said, "JKJ will remain!" Either way, I would want to know the details, his reaction, whether they explained the dressing room clearout, etc.
Whatever. I guess I'll just assume that he signed a new contract, and hope for the best that if he did, that the storyline for Philip will not suck or at a bare minimum, will stop featuring Melanie.
I have no idea who his sources are. He's the guy who also gets all the episode rankings and stuff and is usually the definitive answer on stuff like that, so I would be totally surprised if this is wrong. I don't think I've ever heard about anyone mention his unreliability, so I usually believe him. And, if it does, I think he'd be pretty upfront about correcting himself. I'm not even sure he posted the so-called "to-do" with the dressing room.
