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.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
