Marlene McPherson is speaking out in the wake of her and co-head writer Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr. being fired from Days of Our Lives after less than a year on the job. The talented scribe, who helped co-author Will Horton's (Chandler Massey) powerful coming out storyline—set to climax on the sudser next week—is blaming NBC for her and Thomas' dismissal! McPherson tweeted:
From the late Bill Bell to Agnes Nixon, this genre's greats always say the same thing when it comes to meddling execs — they help kill the genre! Why not just let writers do what you hire them to do? Then if they sink or swim, at least there will be no denying it was on their own merit.
