    OK thats it Ive held this in as I can so here goes. I’m to understand that Deidre and Drake didn’t even get contract negotiations. Thats wrong. They have been on this show 20+ years. At the very least they deserve negotiations. I officialy belive that KC is trying to kill his parents legacy. Viewers are turning away in droves and Days deserves this. Drake and Dee desever better and I hope they never return as much as I love them.

    Deidre Hall’s website had this to say:

    Contract Status

    * Deidre’s contract has not been renewed and she will be leaving Days in January 2009

    It says on her message board that her last airdate is 1/23/09.

    I remember when Marlena first came to Salem. Can’t imagine it without her. DAYS continues its downward spiral.
