Josh's rumored replacement as HW is Shelly Altman who wrote AW, GH, and OLTL. Not sure if she's any good though.

Jean Passante who killed ATWT on CBS and GH reject writer Tracy Thompson might be joining her.

Things have gotten worse :shame:

If I was Eileen, stay far away from Y&R while JFP is there.

I still want Eileen to return to DAYS eventually.

Writing tidbits for Shelly Altman

* She wrote GH

* She wrote OLTL for 10 years

* She was Associate HW and wrote AW for the the final 4 years before it was cancelled.

For the longest time I hoped that Eileen would not make the mistake of even wanting to return to that show, because they will never (and I mean not.ever.) write for her the way she deserves, the way they are writing for her now on Days. But honestly, the fact that Y&R hasn't even contacted her even though they have known she's leaving Days as of March, and the fact that Jill Firing Phelps is there, who I'm sure has no use for anyone over 50, especially a woman, tells me they don't really even want her back. And I'm VERY glad about that!

ED deserves better & Y&R is not the place to be right now.

She left on her own to spend time with her family.

I wonder what's the real reason JG decided to quit? Well, EB commented on Twitter, and he's pissed!!

News of Griffith's exit had fans and at least one Y&R star talking on Twitter.


"[L]et me just say, I'm very pissed off," Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) replied when asked by a fan for his thoughts on Griffith's departure from the show. "Enough said!!!"

She's not leaving until march? A lot can happen in 6 months.
Thanks!

Why be glad she's unemployed?! It doesn't make Days any more or less likely to hire her back.

While I'm at it, why does Y&R or any other show's news always have to become about Days of our Lives?

A lot of people come here for Days first and other stuff second. It gets annoying sometimes especially when someone who doesn't always post the ratings does so and they only post the ratings for Days because that's all they are interested in.

Jean Passante needs to stay far away from any soap currently on air.

Eileen announced to TPTB at Days that she was leaving in March of this year. Her final scenes were filmed in July and are supposed to air in November - so whatever her exit storyline is, it's already in the can and she has been free as a bird to go do another show/soap/etc since then.

That's filming far more ahead than usual, isn't it?

ED is "unemployed" only because she wants to be. She wanted to take break due to the exhausting schedule. It's not like she's a starving actress and should be lucky if Y&R wants her back. She should, and does, get to call the shots herself. I'm sure Days would welcome her back with open arms if that would be what she wanted. I don't think she will be on any other soap than Days in the future.

And this post nor thread isn't about Days at all. And if something does become to be about Days, good for them! It's only right considering they're the best soap on the air right now. They have earned every accolade they get.

No, actually, it isn't, because DAYS has its own section for that purpose.

That's extremely debatable.

Not sure how long they've been doing it, but Days has been filming that far ahead for quite some time in an effort to save money.

My apologies - I wasn't trying to turn this into a thread about Days, merely wanted to clear up the post that thought ED was going to be with Days thru March when she's already wrapped her stint.

That is a long time ahead though, but, whatever floats their boat. lol
