Except for the fact that Will is her nephew, and the Hortons are well known for their close family relations.

There was a boycott of Chick-fil-A launched by same-sex marriage activists, and MR tweeted a picture of herself showing support for Chick-fil-A by eating there.
Just for clarification, after the anti-Chik-fil-A boycott began over the anti-gay marriage comments made by the CEO, there was a nationwide "Chik-fil-A Appreciation Day" in August 2012. That was the day that MR tweeted that she had Chik-fil-A and that she loved every bite of it. She added: "Land of the free and home of the brave. Love that we all appreciated free speech, right?"
Needless to say, she got called out on it, it wound up making some news stories, and MR deleted her Twitter account for a time (and has since been very quick to block people). http://daytimeconfidential.zap2it.com/2012/08/02/days-of-our-lives-star-melissa-reeves-tweeted-support-during-chick-fil-a-appreciation-dayhttp://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/71593600.html
You'll see in the second link that MR claimed that she didn't mean for the tweet to sound like she was supporting the anti-gay views of the Chik-fil-A CEO, but that's pretty hard to swallow. However, I had not heard anything about MR requesting not to appear in scenes with gay characters though. This thread is the first time I've seen that mentioned. For the most part, I can't really think of many reasons Jennifer would have to interact with either Will or Sonny.
Just look at Nick, everyone connected to the Hortons were all supportive of him, and all the time he was snowing them. Also, I find it interesting that not one member of that family have since seen talking to Nick, saying things like why and how could you do something like this to Will. Yes, the rape has been mentioned in a conversation with Maggie, but that's it. It would have been especially satisfying to see Jennifer reprimand Nick for what he was doing to Will, her nephew no less! But that obviously hasn't happened.
I would like further reports on the possibility that MR has requested such a thing.
