Another good read from Nelson, thanks for posting. Guess the plot continues to thicken.

Thanks for the update Nelson ... It's good to hear that Days can see their way out of this mess. I hope they unify and get this show back on track. This show needs Unity about all else. Everyone needs to be on board to make it work.

I do appreciation it when they try to resolve things rather than continue the mess and the conflict!

Thanks for posting the update. So Dena's ass is staying :unsure: Well, hopefully she, Scott, and the rest of TPTB can collaborate well enough to save the show! I just hope everything works out.

I'm glad Dena staying. It will give them time to find a suitable headwriter in her place instead of throwing any one in there.

Another great report. I love that Kelly squashed the idea of recasting Haley! :)

Regarding Days, who was the person that said "It's business as usual.?

Thanks, Nelson.

Thanks Nelson!

Hope Dena's not staying.

No need to feel sorry for Jarlena, lol. Stefano's always a welcome addition to any storyline. I can't wait for his stuff to start airing - it sounds great! And Ava's gone! ;)

Is 'business as usual' code for 'let the ratings and viewership continue to fall?'

I'm not happy that Ripa nixed the recast of Hayley. Hayley is a character that is needed on the show and if Kelly is not going to play the role then there is no reason she shouldn't allow someone else to play the role.

It would be much better to have Hayley on the show with her history and character attachments than to have a new character.

I mean the show probably couldn't even afford Ripa at this point if she came back plus they would have to work around her Live schedule so I don't see her ever returning. So why not have a new Hayley. And if this is true shame on Ripa for refusing to promote the show - that sounds like real love for the show to me.

I'm really questioning why any of this had to be brought to light. What good did it really do? With Higley firmly in place for the time being, its pretty likely that the show will continue to lose viewers plus the reputation of 2 professionals has been hurt because of what a squealed?

I really think this was 'leaked' by Higley herself in order to divert attention from her own WGA scandal and because she was worried about being fired due to shitty ratings. So what does she do? She takes something that should have been an internal issue and leaks it so that she can play the role of the victim and hide behind WGA's skirts.

That's my theory.

In all honesty, if AMC really wanted Ehlers as Harley, she'd be Harley. Ripa endorsing it or not probably wouldn't affect anything, as "big" as she is.

Not sure why this is painted as all being Mr. Scott and Ms. Sweeney's fault. Sorry, Higley doesn't get a shred of support from me, as it's because of her that Mr. Scott had to put his career on the line, in an attempt to save this show.

The actor maintains his latest return is open-ended. Sorry, Jarlena!


Not a clue what you meant by that, but this John and Marlena fan is pleased to have Joe back. Infact, I am greatly looking forward to the upcoming scenes with Stefano and Marlena. :biggrin:

Dena's history. It won't happen this week or next, but she's toast.

Higley and the squealer made it Scott and his pal's fault. I doubt either of them did anything just for the sake of messin' with Higley because if there is one thing that Scott and the actors want its to stay on the air so if they did all of this stuff its because it needed to be done to save the show from Higley.

I am totally with you. I am psyched that Stefano is back. I am re-programming Days into my DVR as we speak!
