I believe all of this. I can see SSM being intimidated by Kay Alden for the simple fact that Kay is twenty times the scribe she will ever be. Not surprised that some nepotism is involved in this story too. 

 

SONY is stupid. If anything, Kay is the writer they should've kept, and they should've booted SSM's lame a**. Y&R is still dreadful under her.

I can believe it in theory, but I don't see them not being a package deal or simpatico. I was under the impression Alden was brought in at Sussman's insistence.

 

Also: Wasn't this the dude furiously stanning for Maria Bell to the end? The line about these folks "not being the Bells" seems quite pointed.

If true, they fired the wrong writer. Also im not sure about the source of this story: he was a rabid MAB stan back in the day.

This article writer was a HUGE MAB stan. Look at the sourcing in the piece -- as usual, it's terrible. You mean this guy has the scoop and no one else does?

 

i don't believe it.

I think it's nothing but tabloid crap. But I can see Alden going I suppose. What has she been allowed to do? I think the show is all Sussman.

Actually Tommy has the scoop hes more then tabloid. He was right about J8osh Griffith going. Hes usually right he has inside scoop. Its more then tabloid stuff as he is usually right. He is a friend of Bells. He waa a big fan of MAB. I am sad to hear about Kay Alden but not surprised the ratings havent been stellar. I am sure Sally is covering her butt in all this. It makes complete sense that Kay has gotten the boot. What Sally needs is Shelly Altman but shes too busy.

I have no doubt he's right about Alden being out. But he's biased and a sensationalist. The why's are probably incorrect.

I feel like Alden's had very little influence over the show but maybe that's just me. There's too many cooks in the kitchen.

Hes usually not lies in speculation. He is biased and loves Maria Bell. He despised JFP. Jill had much higher ratings then Maria or Mal. I bet this is right its almost about that time her year contract up. YR ratings have been quote low this year something was going to give. I think Alden is too old skewing for what Sony wants. The cast loves Mal and Sally probably is pushing a different vision to cover her butt. The show lacked drama i have always thought Sally needed a good co head writer.

Her exit would fit with the network/Sony having run roughshod over Sussman and Alden from very early on. Which is not to say their work is genius - it's not - but it was very clear when old patterns began reasserting themselves that did not fit with the show they set out to make.


That being said, this guy's claims about the 'why' are bunk and in service of Maria Bell's ego.

    • Maybe I'm just getting too old but, while I loved the chorus of Lucky, I couldn't understand 40% of the words in the verses the girls wrote.  I feel like what made Read U Wrote U a cultural phenomenon was the ability to sing along, now with the sound mixing, and lack of closeups when they perform, it is impossible to decipher what the heck they are talking about.   Also, why is it that every time they're given a challenge to write lyrics, they always focus on the topic of winning the crown, rather than other humorous takes on the theme of the chorus?  From what I could understand only Rose actually included the concept of being lucky in her writing.
