Writing “Karma is a bitch” atop a photo of Alarr and referring to the Deadline story, Rinna added: “Well, this took a long time. Let’s see when’s the last time I went over there and did that week on Peacock I couldn’t believe the work environment. It was disgusting, I was shocked. I let many people know, Albert included, and they didn’t do a thing until now, it seems.”
Deadline has reached out to Rinna’s reps for comment.
Rinna portrayed Billie Reed on Days from 1992-95, then returned to reprise the role several times, in 2002-03, 2012-13 and for a few episodes in 2018. She most recently played the character in 2021.
As Deadline reported, there have been issues with Alarr’s behavior since he joined the soap, but things escalated after he was named co-executive producer in 2015. Multiple DoOL insiders said Alarr has been abusive, making people feel uncomfortable and humiliated, according to the Deadline report.
