HomeTVDays of Our LivesWhitesell Named Co-Head Writer at “DAYS” Luke Kerr August 23, 2008 5 Comments Well, if Hogan vs. Bell wasn’t enough to call today "Freaky Friday" than the following may just be. Soap Opera Network is reporting that Days of Our Lives’ Gary Tomlin, who took over after Ed Scott left, has appointed Christopher Whitesell as Co-Head Writer along with Dena Higley. 5 Responses season1217 August 23, 2008 Will the drama never cease?! Maybe this will appease you DAYS fans? Higley will have much needed help in ruining this show. LOL! Log in to Reply snowi August 23, 2008 I don’t know him….is he like Dena? Log in to Reply gush900 August 23, 2008 Love chris whitesell he was a headwriter on my all time favorite soap sunset beach.Im thrilled chris is on board.Why in the world would mr corday keep dena higley as headwriter the woman doesnt even watch the show so she stated.Ans ed scott was a saving grace for the soap.Personally id take jim reilly back over dena higley.
