I always got the impression that Melody Thomas Scott was a diva after she married Ed. Jeanne Coooper mentioned in her book that back in the 80's, Mel just stopped speaking to her for some reason and was that way for about 2 years. She said Ed Scott also did the same. She said then one day Ed was having a scene lit with Mel and ignored Jeanne and Mel then said what about lighting mother (Jeanne) and then they made up after that. She said she never did figured out what the problem was.

 

Eric Braeden alway seemed just to "tolerate" most of his co-stars. I always wondered how he felt about some of the women he worked with. I do think he adored Meg Bennett. In all the old photos of them at events he has her close to him and I saw a pic a few years ago when he was celebrating his anniversary with the show and he had Meg pulled up close with his arm around her waist.

it doesn't matter what ethnicity or color Victoria Rowell happens to be; she's one flew over the cuukuuuuu nest! 

Ellen Wheeler was not a strong producer, but she had good intentions.  The reason the show tanked is budget.  The new model was the only way they could survive.  Dave Brandon, who has a linkedin page, was one of the guys responsible for inventing a new model after the budget was cut 60%!!  He has it as a resume item.  That wasn't Ellen's fault.  She also had to deal with the writer's strike; she kept a stable group of writers.  She kept Reva and Josh front and center.  Her biggest fault is in new cast member hiring.  Most were god-awful under her reign and there's just no excuse for that with all the talented people in NYC.  Remy and his wife, Daisy, Many Bruno (she was the worst!).  NuCassie.  They all fell flat.  GL is gone forever but won't be forgotten....

As far as soap journalists go I'd say Tommy Lightfoot Garrett.

Who knew that one could garner the 'worst reputation' from actively speaking out against the racist double standards in front of and behind the camera?

Yep.

James DePaiva's reputation among those at ABC Daytime certainly took quite the hit over the years (I don't blame him for speaking out, though).

She seems like a very miserable person. Couldn't stand her and laughed at her weak ass attempt to make it big via reality tv :lol:

I think Braaden and MTS treat Y&R like most of us do our daily jobs. There are people you like, people you don't like, and people that are just there.

I didn't even mind the fact that she was a ornery bitch.  What I do mind is that she never owns that sh!t (i.e.: whining whenever someone had the nerve to call her non-acting and ignorant ass out) and that she comes across as one who won't be content until she brings everyone down to her miserly level.

Didn't she refuse to take a 15% pay cut in the spring of 2005 resulting in several of her co-stars (Jerry verDorn, Marj Dusay, Beth Chamberlin, Michael O'Leary, etc.) to either be cut back to recurring or be phased off Guiding Light entirely?

 

Then a year later didn't she yank her son from As the World Turns after being told Luke Snyder would reveal to all that he was gay?

 

And then a year after that she proved that you just can't take anything she says seriously when she submitted her name for Outstanding Lead Actress at the 2007 Emmy awards.  This came just one year after she said she would never submit her name again if she won at the 2006 ceremony.  She won but didn't exactly keep her word.  At all.

 

She's still considered amazing at her craft but during the middle part of the 2000's, she certainly tarnished her image and just didn't seem as classy as she was in the 1980's and 1990's.

I still see nothing wrong with her refusing a pay cut in the middle of her contract. Yes that sucked for her co stars, but she was very just in refusing. She took the payout on deer next contract.

I think most of the Y&R cast treats their job that way. I can't blame them for not pretending like they get along with everyone. Actors have egos. I don't beleive for a second any of the soap casts get  along as well as they claim.  It's the bitches like Muhney who go out of their way to make themselves seem like the most important asset of the show who I can't stand.

I thought she said he wanted to leave to concentrate more on his education.
 

I can't really blame her for other actors being fired. That was GL's choice.

MTS, probably. Braeden seems to take it personally, as evidenced by some of that Twitter rage.

Agreed. She couldn't go to them in the middle of her contract and ask for additional things (money, time off, etc).

With her son and ATWT, I think that had more to do with the fact they were going to want to use him more because it was going to be a bigger storyline and he wasn't looking to be a big actor.

Stuff like this really makes me wonder why these shows didn't just cut back to half an hour.

I do think Zimmer said that Jake wasn't mature enough to play Luke's "coming out"; he was (I think) only 16 at the time. In retrospect, given the intense glare that put on the character, it was a wise decision. I don't think many 16 yr olds could have handled that.

I think what some saw as her dodging the issue was simply not wanting to confirm that Luke was going to come out and ruin "the surprise", even though it was running rampant all over the internet.
