BREAKING NEWS: Will Biggest Loser Star Alison Sweeney Take Pay Cut to Stay on Soap?

It's official no one is safe at Days of Our Lives. This week's Soap Opera Weekly is reporting that Alison Sweeney, along with Peter Reckelland Kristian Alfonsohave been approached about taking salary cuts in the range of 40-50 percent. As Daytime Confidential revealed, Reckell and Alfonso have reportedly accepted offers to remain on the NBC sudser with substantial reductions in pay, but what about Sweeney?

Many soap opera industry experts, as well as fans of the struggling soap, figured Sweeney to be the one Days star above reproach, considering the show has written most of its front burner storylines around her character Sami for years. That, coupled with the clout Sweeney allegedly wields as a result of her turn as host of the NBC primetime hit The Biggest Loser, seemingly made her untouchable. Apparently that isn't the case.


An insider tells the magazine:

Everyone is walking around on eggshells, wondering who is going to be the next to go."
