Days of Our Lives vet Lisa Rinna is reacting to a scathing report alleging office misconduct by the hands of longtime co-executive producer/director Albert Alarr.
On Tuesday, our sister website Deadline reported that Alarr was the topic of a nine-week inner investigation amid complaints that he had been “abusive” to staffers, making them “really feel uncomfortable and humiliated.”
In a since-deleted Instagram story (which Each day Mail managed to snag a display screen shot of), Rinna — who in 2021 reprised her Days function of Billie Reed within the inaugural season of the Peacock offshoot Past Salem — mentioned, “Properly, this took a very long time. Let’s see, when’s the final time I went over there and did that week on Peacock? I couldn’t consider the work setting. It was disgusting. I used to be shocked. I let many individuals know the way I felt — Albert included.”
TVLine has reached out to Rinna’s camp for remark.
In an announcement, Days‘ producer Corday Productions confirmed that it “engaged Sony Photos Tv, which distributes Days of our Lives, to conduct an neutral investigation into this matter. After a two-month investigation, the unbiased investigator produced a report with its findings. Primarily based on these findings, Corday Productions has taken a collection of actions designed to make sure a protected and respectful work setting.”
Per Deadline, Alarr obtained a written warning and was requested to bear coaching. Nevertheless, he retained his positions as co-EP and director, “sparking outrage amongst solid and crew.”
