jam ... Do you have any idea if DePriest was also responsible for Gregg Marx's exit as David? It seems like his character was off-screen almost entirely after Renee's murder, then once he was vindicated as the murderer (after Julie's false confession), he just disappeared. I know that Marx and Philece Sampler were close friends, so I always wondered if he had just become disgusted with the direction of his storyline and left. Any idea?

Such character assassination on Renee, turning her into a murderer. Thanks, Margaret DePriest, for destroying a wonderful character and then killing her off. :shame:
DePriest was very good at that. She's the one who refused to write for Doug and Julie again after Bill and Susan met with her to tell her they didn't like how out of character Doug and Julie were being written. Bill wasn't happy with how Doug was reacting to Hope. DePriest told him he didn't know anything about raising children despite the fact that he had raised five of his own (and for several years as a single parent).
