The former Billy Abbott of The Young and the Restless, Burgess Jenkins left his role on-air on the top-rated soap opera back in November of 2015.   Jenkins was replaced by Jason Thompson, who debuted in January of 2016.

After Jenkins departed Y&R, it was later revealed that the main reason for his departure was to be closer to his wife Ashlee Jenkins, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2015.  The couple has been residing in North Carolina.

On Saturday, Jenkins posted a beautiful picture on his Twitter account of himself along with Ashlee, and a tweet that read: “6 mos ago w grace, faith, humor & unending strength she put the gloves on & fought. Today she’s cancer free #warrior”

Send your well-wishes to Ashlee and Burgess in the comment section below, and your thoughts on the the good news that he shared with all of his fans.

So very happy for your wife. She is a brave woman who has been through so very much. I know this because my 29 yr old daughter has breast cancer and just had her 5th of 6 chemo treatments. People could never realize what your wife has experienced these past months, such as the many side effects, and the days after treatment.How great a guy you have been to stay by her side. Please know that you are missed on Y&R! Best wishes for the future to you and your lovely wife!

This is wonderful news. Now, I never thought I’d say this since I was heartbroken when Billy Miller left, but any chance Burgess could return and we can forget this new incarnation of Billy Abbott ever existed? Maybe he could bring a team of interior decorators with him and restore the Chancellor mansion at the same time. Oh, dare to dream.

Heather Locklear Sent To Hospital For Psych Evaluation After Threatening To Harm Herself

Former Dynasty and Melrose Place star, Heather Locklear is back in the news Monday morning with another troubling report from TMZ.com.

Reportedly, Locklear was hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday.  Her mother called 911 claiming the actress was threatening to kill herself, and acting erratically.

In the dispatch audio call that was made public by TMZ, it seemed that her mother claimed that Locklear was “agitated and violent.”  She also added that Heather was, “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself, even though she does not have access to any weapons.”

Both the Ventura Country Fire and Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Locklear’s home.

A source close to Heather reportedly said that the actress was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home to check on her. According to the report, that’s when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father.

Locklear was arrested months ago on a felony charge for domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer following a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.  The domestic abuse charges were dropped in March. Locklear was in rehab in April, while her attorneys pleaded not guilty to battery on her behalf.

Back in 2008, there was a report that Locklear was also suicidal. The Melrose Place and Dynasty star has had a history of substance abuse.

So, what do you think of the latest troubles for Heather? Comment below.
