Oh my word!  The soap world just keeps dropping bombshell after bombshell of late. Well, this one should come as happy and welcome news for long time fans of Days of our Lives who have been disgruntled with the stories on the longest running scripted television series in NBC history.

Soap Opera Network is reporting that Dena Higley has been fired as head writer, and has been replaced by former Passions scribes, Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr.  The duo previously worked under the late James Reilly as Associate Head Writer’s from the beginning of the series through to it’s demise in 2008.  We will have more on this developing story later today!
