Just listened to the interview. I'm not sure I would characterize him as bitter but he's definitely disappointed and hurt that he was no longer considered a lead. I liked that he did acknowledge that the same thing happened to the vets who were there before him and said they were gracious about it. He still seemed surprised that it happened to him. It stinks but pushing aside middle-aged and older people in favor of the young is a natural part of life. It doesn't just happen in show business. Like you I won't say more so as not to spoil it for those who haven't listened.

Hope they deal with Bo soon on this show
especially since Peter has no current plans on returning (at least that's the really strong impression he gave in his interview). He didn't even want to be a face seen during the 50th anniversary if that's all they were gonna give him. It kinda sounds like he's bitter about the show.
He knows how iconic Bo & Bope are & how central they are to the show's history. So him not wanting to return for the 50th even for a brief appearance is such a slap in the face to Days fans as a whole.
He also apparently dislikes the way Bo was written out and was disappointed that there was no Emmy opportunity for him during his exit. He said in an interview that Ken told him he wouldn't kill off Bo. If Peter really wanted that Emmy moment, he should've told Ken to do just the opposite and kill Bo in some fashion that would give Peter material, as well as Kristian. (There's no way that Peter could've gotten material without also giving Kristian material if Bo had died as part of Peter's exit.)
I'm going to refrain from commenting on anything else he said in the interview. I'll let people listen to it themselves and create their own thoughts and interpretations of what he said, and didn't say.
