You know, honestly ... it doesn't bother me. Much. Ish. I mean, I wish there could be more collaboration that way with everyone, and I think on some level there is collaboration. Depends who your character is and what the connections are to other arcs, I'd imagine. There was a time that was more collaborative with the whole creative team, and now it's not. Ali is the focus of the show right now. I don't dislike her. I don't love Ali Sweeny's character, and I'm not a big Ali fan. But I respect her, I get why she possibly gets more attn and that her voice counts more in the creative process than others. Do I wish it for MBE, too? Of course. I wish alot of things. But I don't really spite Ali for it.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep[/b]
I think Iím in and out.
Is it going to be where you tell him, and then thatís it for you?
No, no. Iím around, and the family is around. The family is all kind of involved, and we all kind of rally around him and Jennifer.
This sounds like she's just a background character in this two week storyline.
But you know, none of us has a say in anything that our characters say. We just get our scripts.
Except for Sweeny, not only does she get meetings with the writers, brag about getting her storylines inserted, before she got that power people were fired in the past when a writer called them out over Sweeny changing her script
I've read this same speculation/rumor/gossip on other sites as well, but is there anything to substantiate this or is is all just speculation/rumor/gossip?
Not being snarky, just curious to know if she's really calling so many shots. Thanks in advance.
It's just speculation!!
It's actually not. The speculation is about how other actors and people at the show felt about it at the time. It's not speculation that it happened, and it's also not speculation that many other actors have done it. It doesn't seem like it happens much anymore, though, probably due to the way they film stuff so quickly and so far ahead. The main reason, IMO, that so much negative attention got focused on Ali when she did it is because an EP that many of us liked got fired for it instead of a writer that many of us hated.
