Wrong. When Morgan was fired, Tomlin had been already an EP, but he had no impact on the scripts yet. That´s why Whittesel was brought in. Tomlin did notice the chemistry between JKJ and Nadia but I think when the new creative team started to work together on the new longterm directions and knowing about the upcoming budget cuts, they decided there is more conflict with Phillip and Stephanie and Steph is more important character than Chloe with her Brady roots and as the only daughter of a popular supercouple.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
Yep, I would totally agree with you. There isn't a doubt in my mind that the actress playing Morgan was Scott's "pet," and he forced Higley to put Philip and Morgan together. Because the second that Higley was free of Scott, the very first thing she did was to break up Phorgan, have Morgan sent off canvas permanently and take steps toward putting Phloe back together. When Higley took over from Hogan, she started writing sexual tension between Phloe and had them heating things up at the plane crash, which I don't think Hogan intended to do - it seems obvious from statements made that he planned on a very, very long quadrangle with Shelle and Phloe.
I can only assume then that Tomlin is the one who put a kibosh on Phloe this go round. The good Phloe we've gotten in the past I think has been due to Higley.
Wow...Okay, this is so off base. Tomlin was the one who got rid of KR. (there were rumors she might have been the blind item but I don't think that's why she was fired) JKJ even gave that interview in SOD saying that he wanted to try Phloe again.
Someone spoke up against it. My guess is that Dena complained to Corday that another producer was interferring with her "vision."
Hogan was the one who had set up Shelle and Phloe before he left DOOL.
I believe Nadia, Lucas and Kate would be all fired last fall if Tomlin didn´t decide to save the money by letting go Jarlena and other expensive players.
