Yes, I also move that we try to get to the bottom of this.
My recollection of what I first heard, in an interview with her televised sometime during the 80's, where and when I do not know, was of her saying that King personally asked her not to quit at the end of the first season. Whether he allegedly asked her over the phone, or in the same room in person, I won't swear to.
When I first heard allegations that it was an evolving tall tale, I was mad.
So, yeah, I'd like to know.
