Main Cast Billing
How come Kathy Bates and Emma Roberts are considered to be in the main cast when this is their first season when Jamie Brewer has been in season one and is still labelled as a guest? Not trying to sound all social justice here but does anyone else think it's messed up that they get to be in the main cast while Jamie Brewer, Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe don't get to be in the main cast because what? One is disabled and the other two are African American? They all play crucial characters in the show, I just don't understand.

Because Kathy Bates and Emma Roberts are in the Main Titles / Opening Credits. That has to do with how their contracts are negotiated, more than anything else. FishTank (wall/email) 16:29, January 11, 2014 (UTC)
True, but it makes no sense. Main characters should be the ones in the show, nbot the ones who got their names into the credits because of their acting status, imo. Spalding and Misty Day are definitely no more main characters in the show than Marie, Queenie, or Nan. If those are the official rules of the wiki (that opening credits = main characters, forever and always with no exceptions), then so be it, but it still makes no sense at all within the context of the show. --Stevehim (talk) 07:42, November 27, 2014 (UTC)
