Days of our Lives has been plagued with scandal, and none of it has to do with what’s going on in Salem.
The off-screen drama has taken over as allegations of a toxic and disgusting workplace environment have come to light.
This week news broke that co-executive producer and director Albert Alarr was under investigation for misconduct on set and that the outcome had outraged the cast and crew.
According to Deadline, Albert was issued a written warning and asked to undergo training but will continue working on set.
Days stars Peter Reckell (Bo) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole) are speaking out amid these allegations.
As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Lisa Rinna (ex-Billy) put the soap opera on blast calling the work environment “disgusting” and vowing to fight for the young stars working on set.
