It's Friday, and Nelson's still a douchebag
To spare you from reading all of his crap, he doubled down on his tweet that Kristian Alfonso is running the show:
Days of our Lives, NBC/Global — Fools of our Lives: more backstage shakeups!
• Does executive producer Ken Corday know what he’s doing? Let’s hope so! This week, DAYS continued to make news with the announced departures of co-executive producer Gary Tomlin, but not before he was forced to let go stars Nadia Bjorlin, Bren Foster and Emmy winner Tamara Braun.
Real classy, Ken Doll!
“Gary did not agree with the firings,” relays a source. “He was very upset about having to let Nadia, Crystal [Chappell], and Louise [Sorel] go. He doesn’t understand what’s happening.”
But he did understand and suspect that he’d be the next to go, adds the insider. And he was. Which is a shame, because although Tomlin was seemingly obsessed with making DAYS Passions-Lite, the venerable producer contributed to some of DAYS’ great stories, kept the show on budget, attracted top-drawer talent, put Salem on the Emmy map for the first time in decades and mentored the cast and crew beautifully.
“He’ll be missed,” says one actor. “Ken’s making a huge mistake, especially since [a certain actress] is helping in the decision making. We all doubt NBC will renew the show. It’s too late; he let the show slide for far too long.”
A replacement is imminent, according to Soap Opera Network.
And yes, Nelson kissed Tomlin's ass since day 1. Sorry, but any true Days of our Lives fan would be thrilled that Tomlin is gone. Maybe Nelson would notice how bad DOOL is now, if he ACTUALLY WATCHED THE SOAPS HE IS PAID TO COVER.
EDIT: He's still bashing Kristian on Twitter:
@Mimi_088 My latest BS story: Kristian Alfonso is the best actress in daytime. She, seriously, takes soaps to a new heights! LOVE HER!
