I think JFP does. Not only does she have many nicknames (Bootleg Janet Woods/Show Killer) but she also has a bad rap at hiring BFF's, firing anyone over 40, Destroying all shows she touches (Hence "Show killer"). Not to mention the people she likes are instantaneously named as "FOJ's".

 

I still think she is the Anti-Gloria Monty (Could that be another nickname? A-GM??)

 

I think the runner up could be the Great Irna Phillips. Though she created the genre she was not exactly a saint.

 

 

Does anyone agree?

 

Who do YOU think, SON, has the worst rep. in daytime??

Maybe not THE worst, but Ken Corday certainly ranks up there as well.

Aside from him, I agree with JFP and Frons. MAB too.

EP: I'm going to take the road less traveled (for me, at least) and say Ellen Wheeler, as I've never read a single good thing about her EP tenure on GL.

 

Media: Carolyn Hinsey, as per that old Jossip thread that opened my eyes to her behind-the-scenes shenanigans that mad her asinine "opinions" seem like a walk in the park. 

 

Writer: Dena Higley, as her shoddy work on DAYS/OLTL has tainted her professional existence to the point where those who'd never watched either soap fear the sound of her name.

Worst rep among who? Fans? Cast and crew? The press?

I'd say JFP because at this point she gets bashed for things other EPs do and have done frequently.

Drop it anyways Errol. LOL.

 

:)

 

IMO. It's JFP. She's a horrid old witch. Anyone who could fire a 90 year old woman without batting an eyelash. Especially after said 90 year old woman dies. Is a huge piece of [!@#$%^&*].

I think it's an important distinction to make. Among cast and crew, someone like Brenda Dickson for sure. She is the Lindsay Lohan/Terrell Owens of soaps. Drew audiences in her time, undeniably talented, but so toxic to work with that she is now un-hireable.

 

For fans, JFP without a doubt. But for cast and crew, definitely not JFP, as she keeps getting hired and praised. And some fans (myself included) see positives in her work.

 

The press are a bunch of whores who love/hate whoever the network brass tell them to love/hate. They've been irrelevant for so long I can't remember when they ever were relevant. When SON started it was more reputable/reliable/accurate than the Soap press. It is now universally acknowledged as such but it has always been that way.

You can't say that and then leave everyone hanging... I'm curious. Will a new thread specifically for actors need to be started to get you to spill the tea?

I'd argue that Megan McTavish has a worse rep in many ways, though Guza, Frons, Hogan Sheffer, and MAB deserve the rotten rep they've developed. I don't know who's got the worst rep. I don't think JFP's rep is 100% awful, I just think she's had moments of very cynical, artless decisions that hurt the shows more than they helped.

HA, among the press? Nellie Branco.

I think Eric Braeden has the worst bar none, actor wise....

As far as writer/producer I echo JFP, but I think MAB deserves it more...

Agree with Brian Frons, and it's deserved.  Never seen a single defense of him by any fan anywhere.

There were the stories of George Reinholt and Jackie Courtney being difficult.

 

Eric Braeden has always gotten his way when he throws a hissy fit.
