When you consider there were fans blaming ALLISON SWEENEY for Sami being written to kidnap Belle, when you read accounts of fans cussing out the actors who play unsavory characters, doing stupid things at fan events towards actors who play the parts of the "interloper", send not-so-nice letters and "gifts" to actors who admit enjoying playing opposite other actors who AREN'T part of the "twu wuv" couple, and read accounts of them getting nasty letters, it's not a huge stretch of the imagination to figure that there are going to be fans who will forever associate SR the actress with CT the character and not know the difference.
I agree there are crazy people out there. I used to love the Carol Burnette show parodying them. But it is part of the soap world. I'm sure it was uncomfortable for AS, but I doubt it made her sorry for the juicy story. That's all I'm saying. Yes, there are some crazy people out there, but overall, I think the exposure would be more beneficial to her career than the hopefully few looney tunes out there. I'd think many actors would love a short part that would get them this much notice.

I'm not saying you shouldn't feel sorry for her. I just don't consider it unfair given she was hired for a part time role to begin with. I work with contractors all the time. I'm sad to see them go. But I don't feel it's unfair when they leave. I don't even consider it unfair that they fired Drake and Deidre. It's a show, they made a decision, whether I like it or not. I do feel the way they are being written out is tacky and a slap in the face to the John and Marlena fans, and I personally don't think I'll ever forget it, but I'm sure anti-fans are happy and dancing in the street. As you say, you try to get over it as just a show. In the case of J&M, it's thirty years I'm getting over.

My last statement was not a knock to you on my post, btw. I was just saying it will be over soon so J&M fans won't be bothering you soon (at least over J&M). I miss the relationships that I used to watch for, not just J&M but Days in general, so it's made me bitter, but the bitterness wasn't directed at you. I apologize if it seemed to be.
