Elizabeth Hendrickson Wraps-Up Her Run On The Young and the Restless!

While viewers of CBS’ Daytime’s The Young and the Restless learned that Chloe Mitchell is alive on-air this week, in real life Elizabeth Hendrickson was back on set at the number one soap opera taping her final scenes for her ultimate exit from the series.

Liz has been sharing her final days in Genoa City with a series of videos and social media posts.  On Wednesday, she shared the moment she wrapped her last scene which contains no spoilers. On Instagram she posted: “Onto a new chapter… I love my Y&R family so much. Thanks to all of you who went along on this crazy ride this past year with me. Excited for new adventures ahead. Salon life here I come!”

She also posted a video from the hair and make-up room with her longtime on-screen partner, Greg Rikaart (Kevin) relating: “My last day at Y&R…. for now. What I will miss most is my Greg and his super cute face early in the morning.”

So sad to see Liz leave Y&R again?  Have you enjoyed her performances as Chloe Mitchell during her recent return? How do you think Chloe will exit the canvas? Comment below.

Chloe is always a great character! Soap opera writers are superbly great at what they do! I love fictional storylines, and to me daytime soap operas are the best types of fictional storylines!


Sad Elizabeth and Greg are leaving…. perhaps she will surface again IF it is revealed down the road that Adam is indeed still alive……possibilities !
Good Luck to you both !


Yes! Of course! 🙁


She said,,, ”“My last day at Y&R…. for now. ””

It ain’t over the fat lady hasn’t sung ..

(( Anyways- the Y&R couples, the past 2 years, have really stank big time! BORING.


Love the actress, hate the character.
I knew she was going to pop out of that coffin.
Chloe gets to live happily every after with Kevin and Belle while Adam remains dead.
So sick of Chloe, glad she’s gone but know she will probably keep coming back.
I will miss Kevin, too bad that “little monster” (Victor’s words) has to take him with her.


I am sad to see Elizabeth leave Y&R again, she’s is so awesome! Hoping to see her on TV this fall or on some TV show. She’s an awesome actress so someone pick her up!!!

Watch out LA or New York a big star is awaiting you!


It’s sad that she leave y@r we r so sad of this we will miss her a lot and y&r not will be the same without her hope she will come back again she and Kevin its a lot the tow in the same time

The whole story that led up to the exits of Liz and Greg has me pissed. I know Liz signed on for a year but how did Greg become the sacrificial lamb in this story that makes no sense at all. The character of Chloe was always a little nutty but that’s what made us love her. she wasn’t nuts enough to kill anyone. And how do we say goodbye to Kevin when we have so much invested in him and loved all the stories he was in? None of this has made any sense to me and I will be feeling the bite from this one for a long time.


Thank you, thank you, thank you, James.
I feel the same way.
I don’t mind Chloe leaving because I cannot stand her but must she take Kevin with her? Is this why the actor’s contract was not renewed?


It’s criminal, Rhonda. And further proof that no one in charge seems to have a clue as to what fans want. More of Reed and that damn guitar? Lily’s kids? Really? I DO like Chloe’s doctor, though. He’s a keeper. Which they probably won’t. I will be mourning Greg’s departure for a LONG TIME. My only hope is that GH picks him up. Would love to see him reunited with Michelle Stafford and his old sparring partner, Billy Miller. Loved the old “chipmunk” jabs Billy used to lob at Kevin.


I am so sad to see Liz and Chloe go. I really like Chloe and her friendship with Chelsea, her relationships with Kevin, Esther, and Bella. Y&R will be a little less interesting with Chloe gone.


All soaps are getting rid of high salaried people that have run out of story. Dont care if Chloe stays or goes. Y&R is kind of boring. Michael M as Adam kept it fresh but don’t see him returning.


LOL, Irene. Never say never. Who knows, we may be surprised. Considering the explosion of fan-interest in MM, which is still going on, TPTB may overlook whatever happened “back stage”.
Hunter is busy elsewhere, so MM’s return may be facilitated by that fact.
As far as Elizabeth and Greg, I am a stalwart fan of both, always and forever. They, too, may return. I never lose hope…..I am a fatalist.


BYE BYE, Chloe! Kidnap and bound Chelsea’s mouth on your way of town, please?!


Right behind you, dmr. Chelsea’s over-the-top Miss Goody-Two-Shoes goes so against the grain. She may have ‘come up’ in the world, but someone’s essense/persona does not change that drastically.
You can take the girl out of the gutter, but you can’t take the gutter out of the girl.
Nick should know better….he’s wearing frilly panties under those jeans.


& Nick and Chelsea have zero chemistry and are a total bore to watch.




Love her! I wish her and Kevin could stay and Chelsea and Yani were leaving instead!


Who is Yani?


LOL, T….yes, agreed . I want Cane out the proverbial door. I hope Juliet is pregnant with his baby. That’ll shut his lying mouth.
And, his teen kids—go aaway!!


I love Chloe and Liz is so good in the role. 🙂




Chloe… whom I’ve always adored.

lost so much steam… damn TPTB… damnation ! period

without Chance and Ronin… heck without Nina, Katherine, and Esther

invaluable actors who created this dream machine

Elizabeth Hendrickson stood out. I marvel at her presence

Well, what I have felt is that being behind in recording due to my travels, I feel a bit sad. It was clear that all of this silly mixture of things somehow had to end.

I so liked Kevin and was surprised when his departure was announced. I liked him with Mariah. To me Chloe is one of the most skilled of actors and her return was a surprise. The whole story line didn’t resonate with me however. But wish them both the best.

Overall, I watch and don’t start silently screaming as I did when the other fellow was writing. I watch before going to sleep and find it interesting to think about silly things like why Dina is with that younger person. I don’t watch closely enough to even remember the name.

Forgive this, Lilly’s husband seems like he either can’t act or is just playing the role of an incredibly weak man. I don’t like that story.

Funny, but I enjoy a bit of the Sharon news guy story. It depends how you play them , I hope, as being smart; he a writer, she continuing her education. Dillon’s return doesn’t resonate well with me.

Overall, I don’t mind watching again and just fast forwarding for the adds. Guess that is a plus.

Forgive me for this, but

Big Brother

Julie Chen Says Goodbye To THE TALK Via Video Message

As anticipated on Tuesday, Julie Chen officially and publicly exited The Talk.  Through a videotaped message to her co-hosts, viewers and staff and behind the scene personnel, Chen wrapped-up her run.

While Chen has bowed out of The Talk following her husband Les Moonves’ removal from CBS following allegations of sexual misconduct, she will continue on through the end of this season as the host of the reality-competition series, Big Brother.

On The Talk, Eve tossed to Chen’s videotaped exit message which the ladies of the panel also saw for the first time during the live broadcast:

Here is what Julie shared: “I have been at THE TALK since the day it started 9 years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family to me over the years. But right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I’ve decided to leave THE TALK. I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared. Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for. To everyone behind the scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much. To Eve: you’re the newest one at the table, but I feel like I’ve known you forever. You are even more beautiful inside than you are on the outside, if that’s even possible, because, you know I think you are flawless. Sheryl, thank you for being the perfect go-to partner for the last 7 years. I open, you close, and you always bring down the house. We called ourselves “The Book Ends,” remember? And we always laughed when we said it to each other. Your wit, and timing, and humor, and compassion, and intelligence is simply unparalleled. You are incredible. Carrie Ann (Inaba), I don’t know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair, my Asian sister. I’m just saying! And finally, to Sara and Sharon: we’ve been together since day one at THE TALK! I’ve spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and all the private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original three musketeers. I love you all, and I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I could not be more proud to call you my friends. I love you.”

Following the video, Sara Gilbert, creator and co-host of The Talk  thanked Chen for being a major part of the series ongoing success, as Sheryl Underwood looked on in tears.

70th Primetime Emmys: Game Of Thrones, Assassination Of Gianni Versace, ‘Mrs. Maisel’, Henry Winkler Are Night’s Big Winners

Last night in Los Angeles, the 70th Primetime Emmys were handed out.  The event featured several surprise winners, but without little drama throughout its 3-hour telecast that was hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che.

The awards kicked-off though finally honoring Henry Winkler, winning his first ever Primetime Emmy for his performance as Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for HBO’s Barry.

Winkler had previously won two Daytime Emmys.  First in 1995 for the Outstanding Children’s Special, CBS Schoolbreak special, All The Kids Do It, and in 2005 winning as Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for Clifford’s Puppy Days.

The former Fonz of Happy Days reacted on stage to his first primetime award victory exclaiming: “Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Oh, my god!

As the audience gave him a standing ovation Winkler added: “I wrote this 43 years ago.  Skip Brittenham (entertainment lawyer) said to me a long time ago: ‘If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you.’ And tonight, I got to clear the table.”

In another memorable moment, Glenn Weiss, who won for Outstanding Direction of a Special for “The Oscars” took his turn at the podium by honoring his late mother (she died two weeks ago) by proposing to his longtime girlfriend Jan Svendsen, on live television.

As Jan sat in the audience, Weiss began during his acceptance speech: “Jan, you are the sunshine in my life. And mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”  With that, walking to the stage with the roar of the crowd behind her was Svendsen as Weiss continued and pulled out a ring! “This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago. And to my sisters and brothers, I didn’t swipe it. Dad knows I have it, O.K.?”   Jan said, “yes”, and the Emmy audience was thrilled.

As to the night’s big winners; check out the winner’s list below to see how your favorite nominated actors and programs fared!

Julie Chen To Step Down From ‘The Talk’

As of Monday night, the only hosting gig that Julie Chen has resumed since her husband, Les Moonves was ousted as CBS Chairman is Big Brother on CBS.

Chen had yet to return to her seat at the table as the anchor of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, The Talk.

Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct with new allegations surfacing in the New Yorker as recent as just the other week.

Tonight, Page Six is reporting that Julie is walking away from The Talk and will resign.

CNN is also reporting that Chen has made the decision and it is effective immediately and that she will address her decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk

The competition in the daytime talk space, the ladies of The View, voiced that they think there is no way for Chen to return to the panel of The Talk, especially since the CBS series addresses the hot social topics of the day and the #MeToo movement which is so much of our culture these days,

The only statement Chen has made on the new allegations against Moonves, is that she is standing by him when she signed off on a recent episode of Big Brother saying:  “I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night.”

So, do you think Julie stepping down from The Talk is the right choice?  Is she in no-win situation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
