In a surprise announcement today via her Instagram account, The Young and the Restless Christel Khalil (Lily) informed her fans that she has made the decision to go off-contract at the CBS daytime drama series, and go into recurring status with the show.

Khalil, who is in a front-burner storyline since the accident that caused the death of Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan), had this to say: “Hello Lovelies! I wanted you to be the first to know that if you see less of me on @youngandrestlesscbs , it’s because I have decided to switch from Y&R full time to recurring status. That means I’m not leaving, just ready (after 16 amazing years playing Lily) to explore new things! I will continue to be a proud member of the Y&R family and look forward to further adventures playing Lily. Thank you for all the love and support over the years!  Xoxo  Christel”

So, what then do you think will happen to Lily, since Devon (Bryton James) wants justice for Hilary’s death?

Share your thoughts on Christel’s decision to branch out and play other parts, while maintaining her base in Genoa City and keeping the role of Lily alive, via the comment section below.

Recurring is Not a bad thing..
And– importantly;
It was Christel’s decision to branch out and play other parts, her choice.

I hope she finds what she desires and it’s a good thing she’s still with Y&R ..

I do not see that her going recurring means that Lilly will be doing to prison, nope don’t see that happening.

I like Christel and Lily. I guess she wants to do other things.

Good luck Christel, I like you. I wish you would stay and the god awful twosome of Nate and Devon would go forever!

But Timmm, Nate is the greatest guy (per Neil), greatest physician (per Victor), and all-around greatest psychiatrist/life coach/sage/love guru since Carmine the bartender. WHY do we NEED him or the extended Rosales family? I always am suspicious when a new character is identified as “spirited”. It usually means loud, aggressive, and obnoxious.

SH, I dont mind new characters, especially a new clan IF they use them properly! Victor is supposed to be one of the most powerful men in America? Why not bring in a whole new family to challenge him, and his family. That way we dont see the usual Abbott and Newman BS and families can fight for more than just money but new love!

I applaud Christal’s decision to branch out and do other things – why not ?

The character of Lily was essentially destroyed when they tied her to Cane. Frankly as Du’s daughter, she should have been more like Hilary- complex bad girl with a heart of gold. I wish her well– but instead of seeing less of Cane, if Lily isn’t around as much I have a sick feeling we will be seeing more of him– uggghhh

Replace her again with Davetta Sherwood. The spunkier Dru daughter. …send Cane with the kids to Australia. Now with Hillary gone , the show needs a fiery black actress to fill the void. Just like Davetta got canned when Christel returned such is showbizz, now the stage is set for her return!
Imo..the show should have never let the 2nd lily go for the original to return.

Damien…oh, I agree with you…TOTALLY!!!!! To me, Davetta Sherwood was WAY BETTER in the role of Lily than that Christel Khalil chick…PERIOD!!!!! And…yep…send Cane and those kids packing already. SAYONARA!!!!!

Have a good one, Damien.

So many strong female characters leaving. Very disappointed.

I think Devon should investigate what happened from the time she was at her brother place until the accident happen .he should investigate for his own mind to rest

With Hurricane Hillary gone, it’s become glaringly apparent that Lily is a weak character played by an weaker actress. The other day she was pretending to cry and shouted out, “Boo Hoo Hoo!!” and there was nary a tear. I never cared for Lily. She’s a mean girl wearing a halo–at least Hillary owned her bitchiness.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
