One source close to the situation said that the drama behind the scenes is about to get worse. One insider even said, “Now the nepotism game begins,” as Sally is doing whatever she can to get producers to hire her son even though he has no acting or writing credit to his name. In fact, he has never even worked on a television project, yet Sally wants to him to fill in for a veteran writer who has been with the soap for several long decades.
