Of all the people that could have replaced Meg Kelly it had to be her. Well there is definitely no reason for me to return now.

Hogan is bad enough with Kelly, but with Higley it is doomed.

I can't believe this is happening with Ed on board.

I'm going to try and think positive (and believe me, it ain't easy) but.... one show's hack could end up being another show's treasure?

Kitty, She has been a hack on here before. She drove Days down the last time she was here.

She wrote Days for several months back in 2003 after being with it for years, she wrote it right before JER returned and it was HORRIBLE. Then she went to OLTL next year and it was HORRIBLE.

Well.... blame it on my memory not being what it used to be, or maybe those repressed memories are only supposed to be brought out in therapy?

So what you all are saying is that we're basically fucked?

Oh my God. My heart just sank! Literally... my toes are numb, LoL.

P-I-S-S-E-D.

PISSED!

I hate her! The most uneventful, boring, full-of-nothingness writer in daytime. Was Corday not paying attention when she drove OLTL into the ground? Fuck, for that matter, was he not paying attention when she drove DAYS into the ground?!

Fuck. This is horrible news.

You probably forgot all about it because her writing consisted of absolutely nothing.

Nothing EVER happened on the show when she wrote. You could get just as much excitement watching an ice cube melt as watching Days during her stint.

Her most famous story was Bo and Hope becoming bounty hunters and investigating the mysterious green goop on the indian reservation or some shit.

When he fired her in a matter of months, I was sure she would never return, and especially with Ed Scott here!

Days has had so many nails in it's coffin already, but THIS just takes the damn cake.

Many people blocked that era out, LOL.

But basically: Whatever was seen from the end of 2002(I think) to the Salem Stalker story was her.

Well that wasn't her. That was JER.

Okay I worded that wrong the first time, anything BEFORE the Stalker story and after the end of 2002 was her. :lol:

Right.

Ken Corday promoted her to headwriter, talking about how she had such a fantastic vision, and within six months she was let go completely because she sucked so badly, LoL.

Nothing happened when she wrote the show. Nothing! The characters sat around, talked... talked some more... talked some more... talked a little more... then continued to talk, talk, talk... it was just a giant talk-a-thon. Nothing that I can recall ever reached a climax or a dramatic turning point. It was always just a bunch of boring nothingness and stagnancy.

Hogan Sheffer had better make her ass write like her life depends on it, because if I have any say in the matter, it very well might, LoL.

I absolutely hated Jack and Jennifer and that damn talk show too. I do believe that was her. And the bounty hunter thing. Oh it was just awful. And didn't she do that dating thing with Philip too - the bachelor type thing.

Oh man.

Until someone mentioned the green goop story.... ewwwwww!!
