Bathtub fiberglass surround


I promise to keep this short.

Existing fiberglass one piece shower/tub surrounds. The fiberglass surround is about six feet high. Dry wall the rest of the way to the ceiling. Wife wants glass tile around the top of the fiberglass shower. Do I replace the drywall with kerdi board/durock/etc before tiling. Tile will be subjected to humidity and water vapor but hopefully not water drops.

You will be fine tiling over the existing drywall-----scuff the paint --use white modified thinset.
