On the Superposter of the Year blog, a message was posted from someone claiming to be a close friend of Sabine Singh. I'm going to post it below. It speaks for itself.
hi. im new to the board but have been reading it for months now as ss is one of my oldest dearest friends from home. I also hope she does not get angry at me for writing today and speaking HER TRUTH. She is DEVASTATED but is doing everything she can to hide it and continue to honor and respect the show, the fans, and her friends at amc. She was given the news this week and basically, i kid you not, given less than a week to "quietly get out".
regardless of if you like her or hate her, as a close member in her life i can tell you she has spent the past 10 months of her life giving amc everything. she worked everday 17 hours plus, gave up relationships, gave away sadie her dog she loves so much but couldnt take care of with such demanding studio hours - was in unbelievably difficult storylines, emotionally upheaving... so much. BUT then again, we all work so hard at our jobs and that is not my point. on monday she was called into the exec prods office and told to pack her things and leave, no thank you for your hard work - or doing the best you could - or giving it your all. nothing. Not even any financial compensation. she leaves in the middle of a four year contract with NO MONEY or means on how she will survive (ok i love the chick - she'll be just fine - but to be living your life knowing greenlees storyline for the next 6 months being told over and over again how much she is appreciated doing a great job their gonna want to renew her contract,etc, she was floored and SHE IS IN SHOCK.) and apparently rebecca asked to come back way before thanksgiving and they didnt even tell sabine. she coulve started looking for other work! shes being thrown away not cause she was a problem - but because someone else wanted their job back and the high ups at amc need to save their show with ratings.
Two weeks ago, (i KID YOU NOT THIS IS SO MESSED UP) she was sick on set. she had the stomach flu a 102 fever, but didnt complain. instead of the producers or medics or whoever saying she should take a break or even go home - THEY GAVE HER A BUCKET!!! They gave her a F'in bucket to vomit in , put it by her side, and made her stay and finish her scenes. Which she did. Cause the girl, even if you think she is so not greenlee and ugly and u hate her acting, she gave the show her all. The one thing she did do is she showed up. she committed to the role, the job, the fans ,and she loved and was so honored to be playing the role. Thats why it hurts me that right now she's on set working, probably smiling through tears, knowing that friday, rb comes in to shoot the 'welcome back to fusion' youve been redeemed scenes that s was so excited to shoot after all the bomb sheltr stuff) - and her unbelievably hard work means nothing. i told her not to go to work this week - who cares shes been fired anywya and it doesnt matter and she said "no - just because im being treated so badly, i respect my friends behind and in front of the camera and i cant do that to them, i cant mess with the integrity of the shows we are scheduled to shoot this week." She even went to work before the news broke yesterday and didnt tell anyone because she was worried it might affect the days work and other peoples performances. Thats the stuff i m taking about!
you guys rebecca didnt want the role. over and over she was offered it and she didnt want the role. and thats the bottom line. and thats why it breaks my heart that my dear friend has been treated so unfairly. and if you guys/bloggers who seem to be amazing soap fans have any say or pull to write or tell or whatever to the pwers that be - to say you wont stand for this behavior, to just get the word out to tell the soap magazines or whoever tell them what i said. my girl deserves better than to have to quietly sneak away, with the idea that shes being fired/replaced/disgraced. when all she did was audition for a role, book it, and do her job. Thats the crime shes being punished for. I just feel so lousy, and i am so no longer a fan of daytime - which has gotten me through the worst years of my life. I cant even stand to look at amc right now. oh - and the people cast crew on set are so sad too. they realize they are expendible as well - s even said the women and grown men prop guys lighting guys carpenters etc were CRYING and punching walls and yelling at the producers all kinds of stuff thats how messed up the real behind the scenes people think this is. i know ive written so much. thank u for taking a second to read this. I just wanted to tell the all my children fans what sabine would never say, and what is really going on over there.
