“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," she stated.

Rinna charged forward, putting Sony Pictures Television, which distributes the show, and co-creator Ken Corday on blast.

As this outlet reported, production has been suspended until at least August 7 following the misconduct investigation into Alarr. Insiders told Deadline that Alarr's alleged behavior reached its height in 2015 when he became the co-executive producer of Days, claiming he was abusive and often made people feel uncomfortable and humiliated.

One alleged incident involved an actress in her 40s who was filming a love scene directed by Alarr. The actress was reportedly fixing the sheets on the bed to try and cover herself up, allegedly prompting a frustrated Alarr to tell her something along the lines of "try and remember what it was like when you were young and vibrant," according to an eyewitness.
