Arianne Zucker going after Corday Productions, Ken Corday and Albert Alarr

In the Friday, January 19th episode of Days of our Lives, Nicole Walker DiMera (Arianne Zucker) left Salem for Italy with her daughter, Holly (Ashley Puzemis) to care for her at a special facility while she’s in a coma.

Behind the scenes, Zucker was building a case, suing Corday Productions, its executive producer Ken Corday, and Albert Alarr for sexually harassing her and other female employees on the show. This, according to TMZ.

After this statement, Days took a two week hiatus. Alarr stated, “It is hard to overstate how heartbreaking I find this situation.

These allegations were already examined in a detailed and entirely independent investigation that lasted for two months. Dozens of individuals cooperated and every claim was thoroughly looked into. At the end of that process, the decision was made that I should continue in my role as Co-Executive Producer. Now, with no new facts presented, the studios have reversed course and caved to a cynical pressure campaign to force me out of my job.

It’s important to set the record straight. Every day, I worked with hundreds of people, the overwhelming majority of whom would disagree with recent mischaracterizations of me. I have been in this industry for decades, and not a single complaint has ever been made against me until now.

Many of the claims recently referenced in the media are simply false. Others have been taken so out of context or are so twisted that they are unrecognizable from the truth.

To be clear, this whole situation stems from the animus of just two individuals. Those individuals, at a time of industry-wide cutbacks and economic uncertainty, have been relentlessly angling for greater pay and increased influence on the show, and, it appears, believed that their best strategy to get it was to play on vile stereotypes in order to bring down a Black man in a position of power.

I will always be proud of being the only Black director/producer in daytime soap operas. And, while I am devastated by the manner of my departure, I will always treasure my years at Days of Our Lives and wish the wildly talented cast and crew the very best for the future.”
