Another great performer is exiting The Young and the Restless, when confirmation came today via a heartfelt message posted at Soap Opera Digest from Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe).

After speculation over the last week that she had indeed chosen not to renew her contract at the CBS soap opera, Elizabeth confirmed today she is exiting the series to see what other acting opportunities are out there for her.

In her message, Hendrickson reveals that Y&R will leave the door open for her to possibly return some day.  The talented actress joined Y&R in 2008.   Here is what Liz had to say to all of you, her fans and the loyal viewers of Y&R!

Elizabeth Hendrickson:  “You may have heard the rumor that I am leaving Y&R… and it is with a grateful heart that I wanted to tell you personally, my unbelievable fans, that the rumor is true.   What does one say after a decade of the most amazing relationship? Let me start by saying THANK YOU.   Thank you for standing by me and all of my characters in daytime over the many years. A big special thanks to the BAMers, Chilly’s, Clonan’s and Clovin fans.  Your love and dedication has been unwavering. Even the most beautiful relationships need to go through changes in order for them to grow and evolve. This is where I find myself. I need to stretch my wings and fly into the unknown.

The one thing that remains true and what I will hold close to my heart as I embark on this new adventure is that I will ALWAYS have you. If it weren’t for all of your love, support and faith in me as an actress I wouldn’t be able to make this bold move.  Please know, this is not goodbye forever.  This was a very amicable parting of ways. I will be working for a few more weeks and airing well into May.  Y&R and especially Jill Farren Phelps made it very clear they did not want to see me go and plan to leave the door open for Chloe.  I am beyond thankful for my career in daytime, the friends I have made along the way and especially for all of you. I hope to see you all soon. Lets keep in touch. Maybe in another medium or simply another time slot. Regardless. I’ll miss you. Love Lizzie. ”

So, what do you think of the news of Elizabeth’s confirmation that she is exiting Y&R?  What did you think of her message to her fans?   Will you be sad to see her go?  Let us know!

Sorry to see her go. But I really believe more and more will be leaving. The show has just gotten worse. Bad writing. Terrible story lines

Unless you decide to be a lifer on soaps, she’s made the right choice if she wants to advance her career. She’s a young woman and frankly her career will be longer than if she stayed on Y&R. Who knows how long the four remaining soaps will be around. They may have seen a “comeback” lately, but in the long run, it’s doubtful they’ll be around 10 years from now.

It’s sad to see her go, but I’m glad it’s on her own terms and not the show’s. But people are still going to whine and complain that someone else had a hand, despite her giving her word this is amicable. Wish her the best wishes in whatever she does next. Would love to see Chloe come back!

Wishing her well in future endeavors I have not liked how they have written her character for a long time maybe she felt the same way.

That was a very nice message. Good luck to her.

With Delia gone and other story decisions, I think she lost her zest, so I’m not totally sad to see the character go.

Best Wishes! Have to question her comment about another time slot. She says it has nothing to do with JFP but I believe anything and everything has to do with JFP. Elizabeth will do well anywhere she lands.

another big change in Y&R with her going, sorry Y&R but the show has had too many changes lately and not worth watching anymore as we struggle harder and harder to relate to the newcomers and all the changes that are happening

I’m not really sorry to see her leave. After we MM fans lost MM I felt she took H.K. side, then there was the picture of her, Chelsea & Kevin that they took with there little signs which I thought was rude to say the least. I kinda hope a couple of others have need to spread their wings from Y&R.

I have always enjoyed her very natural perfrmances in the very different roles she has played on AMC and TY&TR. I just hope we don’t see too many more exits from this show. Too many cast losses and weak replcement castings have marred it. But I am Jess Walton is back, even with a kooky storyline.

Why is it the ones you want to stay are invariably the ones who go while the ones you wish you would go (Lily, Summer, DuhYawn, Neil etc.) refuse to leave?
It’s like the very men who absolutely should never wear Speedos are the ones who always do.

Replacing them would be futile; proof can be seen with the replaced Billy Abbott (not working/fail)

And this brings the tally up to five. Jeanne Cooper, Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller, Michael Muhney, and now Elizabeth Hendrickson, all fantastic actors and actresses. These were among Y&R’s top talent, and now they’re gone. I understand EH wants to explore other acting opportunities, and I’m glad the door is being left open for her return, and she isn’t being recast right away like Billy was. I know she’ll do well because she’s amazing. But this is just another in a long string of losses for Y&R recently, and I’m worried the canvas will soon be all new faces with… Read more »

Let’s read in between the lines. “Elizabeth confirmed today she is exiting the series to see what other acting opportunities are out there for her.” AND THIS… “Y&R and especially Jill Farren Phelps made it very clear they did not want to see me go” TRANSLATION Y&R did NOT want to give her a contract that allowed her to do outside projects while on the show. Therefore, she’s leaving. Now, could she have become a recurring character instead of a contract character? Maybe, but Y&R didn’t want that. So another loss for Y&R. I consider it ‘balancing the Karmic scales’.… Read more »

I wish her luck, but I am surely going to miss her, I am huge fan and have watched since her days at AMC, but was thrilled when she joined Y&R. Darn I had no idea she was going to leave, I enjoy watching her, she’s a class act!

Can’t say I blame her. I’d jump off this sinking ship, too. But, hey, at least this means more airtime for Avery’s baking, right? Good times!

People come and go and come back. I wish this lovely talent the best. I’m pleased to see the recent returns of the incomparably talented David Tom and Camryn Grimes, and maybe, by some miracle, Ashley Bashioum, Heather Tom, Michelle Stafford and Eileen Davidson will return for extended (contract) stays some day not too long from now. Before anyone responds that David Tom and Heather Tom are siblings, I am hoping for a Billy and Mac reunion. Anyway, I digress, and this article is about Ms. Hendrickson. All the best!

Maybe if she moved to Tennessee she would get what she wants.

I find it hard to believe this show is still number 1 in ratings, its God awful.

Oh man… Y&R is hanging by a thread. PLZ LISTEN TO THE FANS! Gonna miss chloe and EH talent, but wishing her the best and hoping for a return.

My first reaction to Elizabeth’s decision to leave Y&R is a selfish one; I do not want to see her leave because the show is threadbare and the plots more of the same ole, same ole. I wish her well and hope that she is able to find a regular prime time slot, because she is a good actress. I found her believeable. Rather than castigate Y&R and beat a near-dead horse, her departure presents another opportunity to strengthen not only the acting base but the storylines. Hope it happens. If I see another “here, taste this, now this one”… Read more »

So sorry to hear EH leaving but based on the recent changes and exits, I am not surprised. They wrote her character into a corner. Her daughter was killed, she kidnapped her God son and they have done nothing to help redeem her…. bad writing after bad writing. Add the JILL FACTOR and I would think she is relieved to be out of there…she has a lot of talent and hopefully will land somewhere less stressful. Who wants to come to work in an environment that Jill has created…

Great job Elizabeth…hope to see you soon…

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
