Well, the bright spot of her tenture was that it gave Cameron Matheson (Ryan) some good material. I cried with him when Gillian died. I hate the smug SOB he is now.

A good storyline from her was Bianca's crush and friendship with Laura.

I remember nobody cared for Laura which is a shame since she was the adopted daughter of Brooke (i miss her) and Brooke had more story under Pass that McTrash.

Did she write Bianca's coming out story? That was late 2000 i think.

Going back to classic soaps, Henry Slesar wrote some fantastic stories for Edge Of Night in his 15 yr run.

However,in his latter years the story where Raven was conned into believing she had killed Jinx Avery drew mixed(mostly negative) reviews as did a plot where JodyTravis was convinced to become a martyr for a foreign country called Eden.

Early on in Bold &Beautiful, Bill Bell penned a sstory where we were supposed to believe that Stephanie Forrester had kept the fact that daughter Angela was alivea secret from the family for years.It was later revealed that an imposter was impersonating Angela.

    • Admittedly, I have never seen the Sleepy Hollow television series, though I am a fan of Nicole Beharie (if that Doris Payne biopic ever comes to fruition, Beharie is the only actress that truly makes sense for the role, no offense to Tessa Thompson). From the little that I have read about the BTS machinations, it sounds like the word toxic is an understatement as a descriptor of the environment.
    • So, this is totally just supposition based on reading Zimmer's memoir and Pam Long interviews.  It seems like Long felt some ownership over the character of Reva, which eventually caused some friction between the two women.  Zimmer writes of a lunch with Long and a CBS executive that devolved into a screaming match, resulting in the executive wanting to hide under the table.  And in her exit interview with SOD, Long talked about scuttled plans to bring back Reva in a dream for Christmas.  Thus, what I would imagine occurred is that Zimmer wanted to leave, but Long held out hope for her to return.  The resolution was an exit that needed to be semi-permanent enough to please both women. 
    • Does this mean Us Weekly won't be able to do any more cover stories hinting that she's pregnant? 
    • I remember people making jokes of "Pam's dream" on late night shows. Also Newhart did the "It was all a dream" joke for it's series finale as a jab at Dallas. Victoria also expressed in interviews that she wanted to leave the show after season 5 because of the decline in writing. The dream season really drove home her point on that.   Victoria's relationship with the cast was kind of "She felt like an outsider". When the cast discusses her they walk on eggshells when she is brought up. She rarely participates in interviews with the rest of the cast. At times Patrick will praise her and other times he will subtly throw shade at her. John Beck (who played Mark) said in an interview that he preferred working with Linda Gray than Victoria.  There have been rumors of Victoria being a difficult or to herself behind the scenes. She was the closest to Jim Davis till his death.
