MBE and SN aren't past prime...MBE had been on ATWT right before this finally lined up this time and SN had been on GH for a bit as well as doing other things behind the camera and other ventures of his own. I seriously doubt they were begging for the offer. I think Corday thought he could gain a HUGE following back for his show and raise ratings but between HW issues and such.....he never got them re-introduced properly to the viewers who missed their first run. There had been several times that Corday and crew had asked the 2 of them about coming back in that 15 year absence and several times they had everything in place to only have Corday pull back out of the deal.
I do agree though about the contract $$$ and such both Drake and Dee had been there as a constant for along time and could negotiate better deals with more $$ and the like which would inflate their salaries higher than the rest and would be the big reason for the budget heave -ho first.
All of this goes back to Corday's lousy business skills as an owner and NOTHING more.
