Arianne Zucker, who played the role of Nicole Walker on the soap opera Days of our Lives, has filed a lawsuit against the show's ex-producer Albert Alarr, as well as executive producer Ken Corday and Corday Productions Inc. According to the lawsuit, Zucker was given a take-it-or-leave-it option and the producers refused to negotiate in good faith. As a result, her contract expired, effectively firing her from the show. The lawsuit also accuses Alarr of inappropriate behavior, alleging that he touched Zucker and other female co-stars without their permission. Zucker states that human resources at Corday Productions were aware of the harassment but ignored complaints from performers.

Alarr was fired in August following the news of his harassment. Zucker is suing for wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation, and negligent hiring and supervision.

It is not the first time that Zucker has been involved in a harassment scandal. She was also the actress featured in the Access Hollywood tape, in which former President Donald Trump bragged about initiating unwanted sexual advances towards women. Despite the lawsuit, Zucker's character, Nicole, is currently involved in a storyline where her baby son is stolen and her teenage daughter overdoses on opioids. Due to Days of our Lives' advanced taping schedule, viewers can expect to see Nicole on-screen for several more months.

Days of our Lives has released a statement regarding the lawsuit, but the details of the statement have not been mentioned in the article.
