Lisa Rinna Calls 'Days of Our Lives' Set 'Disgusting' After Misconduct Investigation Concludes

‘Days of Our Lives’ recently conducted an internal investigation into alleged misconduct by director and co-executive producer Albert Alarr

Lisa Rinna is speaking out about what she saw as inappropriate behavior on set when she returned to Days of Our Lives in 2021.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star alleged uncomfortable conditions on set as the series undergoes an investigation into misconduct by director and co-executive producer Albert Alarr.

“Well, this took a long time…the last time I went over there and did that week on Peacock I couldn’t believe the work environment,” Rinna, 60, wrote in a now-expired Instagram Story, which was reported by Entertainment Weekly. “It was disgusting, I was shocked. I let many people know, Albert included, and they didn’t do a thing until now, it seems.”

Rinna — who played Billie Reed between 1992 and 1995 before reprising the role in Peacock’s Day of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in 2021 — added, “I was afraid for the young actors who had to continue to work there. I went to the producer, I even spoke with Sony HR. I wonder where the union is in this and how was this left unchecked?”

Deadline first reported Alarr was the subject of a nine-week investigation after allegations that he’d “bullied” actors off the show and that “women had been disproportionately impacted by [layoffs in March] and were not receiving equal pay on the show.”

Alarr has also been accused of forcing two women to kiss without their consent and engaging in other inappropriate workplace behaviors.
