Oh come on, you can't tell me you are not trying to bate people now to respond lol 61 is far from over the hill and most actors happily work into their 80s.

However, I give major props to Deidre's publicist in getting this story so much attention -- because the character has been past her hay day on the show for quite a while.
I disagree that Deidre's firing will have a "grave" impact on the show.
All her publicist did was confirm to those who asked that Ken Corday is removing Marlena from the canvas. The media outlets picked up the story from SOD and then from each other, because I guess they disagree with your assessment of how popular she is. But about the impact on the show - though you and I see differently on this, it's of course only speculation at this point. We can meet back here in six months and discuss it again!
Deidre has been on the show longer than she should have been anyways. There comes a time in a person's life when they reach a certain age that they need to retire, collect their social security checks, spend time with the kids or grandkids and live out the rest of their life before death comes knocking at their door. This is Corday's way of getting rid of the excess fat that isn't needed anymore.
