The Internet was abuzz all afternoon after Soap Opera Digest posted an item that Daytime Emmy winner, Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) had decided to leave the number one soap, The Young and the Restless, this summer when his contract expires.

But later today, Soaps In Depth, posted that all may not be lost for the talented Miller’s time in Genoa City.  They are reporting that Miller is still in contract negotiations with the series and both sides are trying to work out an amicable deal for Billy to stay and still do outside projects, like his recent guest-star turn on Justified.

Make sure to read our very recent interview with Billy and his Y&R co-star Amelia Heinle (Victoria).  Heinle had just re-upped her contract.  So could it be Victoria with no Billy? Or, will Billy stay put? More on this developing story as information comes to light!

Billy J Miller truly has star quality for sure. He is a fine actor, wildly handsome, he has it all. He could be the next Brad Pitt. But before he goes off to dance with fame and stardom, please let him stay on Y&R just a little bit longer. Would love to see more interaction between Mr. Miller and The great Eric Braeden. To be able to see an up and coming major star in the works, and a master,gifted actor like Mr. Braeden working together, that would be beyond wonderfull to see. So please for now, I hope that… Read more »

Oh Michael my heart hurts with this news but I’m trying to stay hopeful that all will be worked out. Billy should be given anything he wants because Billy Abbott IS Billy Miller and of course VILLY is the beautiful love story most of us simply Can’t live without! If Billy Miller leaves I will be so disappointed in YR and everyone else involved who could not give him what he absolutely deserves. I’m keeping the faith for my sweet Billy Miller and my sweet Villy!

Billy Miller is main reason I watch Y&R these days. Storylines are so predictable. Billy brings his A game.

Yes, I totally agree. Billy Miller is very talented actor and would be missed very much! Amelia and Billy brings the SEXY back to Genoa City!

I really hope a mutually agreeable deal is worked out so that Billy Miller remains on the show. He is such an asset to the Y&R canvas, and he has palpable chemistry with so many cast members. That said, I feel like the Y&R writers haven’t been utilizing Miller’s talents to the fullest possible potential since the character has been paired with Victoria (sorry; I’m not in the “Villy” camp; I always preferred him with Chloe / Liz Hendrickson). In any case, it would be a great loss to the show. Hopefully something is worked out. It’s bad enough Jeff… Read more »

Oh say it ain’t so ….Billy Miller’s inception as Billy Abbott has been and continues to be a great asset to the show ( I just love that smile and the grin).
He has great chemistry with everyone he works with on the show…..just love this guy.
Love his pairing with Amelia(you’d almost think they were a ‘real life ‘ couple.)
Y&R needs to keep him on the show -but let him do outside projects.
Rooting for Billy and Victoria. 🙂

I will definitely miss seeing him on Y&R he portrays Billy Abbott to the highest level with such complexity and style. I love his chemistry with Amelia and I disagree cause his character hasn’t change since his pairing with Victoria he is still the same Billy Abbott. Seriously though Billy can never be boring at all even in the saddest of moments Billy Miller makes it enjoyable and interesting. I would love for him to stay with Y&R, “there’s no Place like Villy”, but if not then I wish him all the best in the future.

I don’t blame him for wanting out. The writers have destroyed his character by pairing him with the whiny vikki.. I hope he stays and they break that horrible pair up but I sure don’t blame him. Playing Billy newman must suck.

Billy Miller is uber talented. He needs a dramatic storyline on the show. His talents are not being used to their fullest potential. Don’t waste him on boring storylines that drag on and on. Also, let him do other projects. His talent is HUGE. Let him spread his talent down other avenues. Just don’t let him leave Y&R!

If they are smart they will reach an agreement, I think this is petty common when you have a good actor with a good storyline. Hopefully he stays!

PLEASE I REPEAT PLEASE……. Please dont let Billy leave. This would be absolutely devastating. Billy is the MAIN reason I continue to watch Y&R. With all of the crazy ridiculous story lines now, Billy and Vicki has the best. I could think of a few other people that should leave instead…. Sharon, and this new Malcolm!!!!! UUUGGGHHHH!!!!!

Billy Miller will become a hugh movie star in the very near future,I truly believe this. He is wildly handsome, and is a very fine actor. I think that it is only a matter of time before he dances off to major stardom. He could become the next Brad Pitt or perhaps an even a bigger star in his own right. However before he ventures off to win his first acadamy award, I would like to have him stay just a little bit longer on Y&R, It would be great to see more interaction between Billy Miller’s character and Eric… Read more »

I really hope that he stays. Billy Miller is the only one who really brings the character of Billy Abbott to life. Not to mention he is the only one who has the perfect chemistry on set with Amelia Heinle.

I really hope he stays… Billy miller is fantastic in the role of Billy Abbott and he and Ameila have fantastic chemistry as Villy! Hopefully Y&R will continue to let him do outside roles and he’ll stay on… I would be really disheartened if he were to leave.

I have an excellent storyline. Billy is off to China or wherever to investigate the LEGAL adoption of twin babies that are up for adoption. Parents killed and grandparents too old to raise the children. Imagine victoria’s shock when he returns with the babies and ALL THE LEGAL PAPERS. What a beautiful storyline !!!!!!

Please do not let Billy go. I watch Y&R to see him and Victoria. They have such good chemistry and I would love to see a “Happily Ever After” for them. I would also like to see Billy defy Victor and have everyone find out what he has been up to. He’s always accusing others of things he does himself. When is Victor going to get his! Please Billy don’t leave!

Lynne

I hope he doesn’t leave! I enjoy his character and his acting is great! Also, his character is just about the only person that really doesn’t put up with Victors crap! and he doe’s it in such a great way-Billy starts to feel like a person you would like to have around you-he will be missed if he goes.

It is time the death of Delia is over. Billy is one of the main characters that started the show and needs to return. It is not the same without his emotional charges he brings. No offense but the new one does not cut it.

Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean. Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you.”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Now let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
