The former Billy Abbott of The Young and the Restless, Burgess Jenkins left his role on-air on the top-rated soap opera back in November of 2015.   Jenkins was replaced by Jason Thompson, who debuted in January of 2016.

After Jenkins departed Y&R, it was later revealed that the main reason for his departure was to be closer to his wife Ashlee Jenkins, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2015.  The couple has been residing in North Carolina.

On Saturday, Jenkins posted a beautiful picture on his Twitter account of himself along with Ashlee, and a tweet that read: “6 mos ago w grace, faith, humor & unending strength she put the gloves on & fought. Today she’s cancer free #warrior”

Send your well-wishes to Ashlee and Burgess in the comment section below, and your thoughts on the the good news that he shared with all of his fans.

I am so happy to hear this news. Makes me happy when any one can beat this horrible disease. It does take a log of fight and determination to come out on top of it.
Wish you were coming back as Billy Abbott, the new Billy is not you.

So very happy for your wife. She is a brave woman who has been through so very much. I know this because my 29 yr old daughter has breast cancer and just had her 5th of 6 chemo treatments. People could never realize what your wife has experienced these past months, such as the many side effects, and the days after treatment.How great a guy you have been to stay by her side. Please know that you are missed on Y&R! Best wishes for the future to you and your lovely wife!

This is wonderful news. Now, I never thought I’d say this since I was heartbroken when Billy Miller left, but any chance Burgess could return and we can forget this new incarnation of Billy Abbott ever existed? Maybe he could bring a team of interior decorators with him and restore the Chancellor mansion at the same time. Oh, dare to dream.

‘The Talk’ Returns as Sheryl Underwood Shares the ‘Trauma’ She Feels Over Incident That Led to Sharon Osbourne’s Exit

CBS’ afternoon series The Talk finally returned to the air, following the departure of Sharon Osbourne and the tense moments that went down on the March 10th episode between her and Sheryl Underwood.

Monday afternoon, co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Amanda Kloots and Carrie Ann Inaba along with diversity and inclusion expert, Donald E. Grant, were on the episode.  Grant, served as the moderator as the women discussed what happened when Osbourne came at Underwood when defending Piers Morgan’s remarks about Meghan Markle, eventually prompting an extended internal investigation by CBS.

On today’s episode, Sheryl Underwood shared: “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that ‘angry Black woman’, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

Elaine Welteroth added, “When you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace.  As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.  There have been a lot of false narratives that have been spun in the aftermath of what happened on that episode…this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak. And I think it’s really important that we have the opportunity to say that the false accusations that are swirling in the press that frame Sheryl and I as some kind of, you know, people who attacked a woman on air, and were part of some sort of, you know, conspiracy, that is absolutely, categorically false.”

She later added, “I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard.”

In addition, Underwood wanted to go on record stating that while she had received text messages from Osbourne, she hadn’t replied to them because she wasn’t sure she was supposed to during during an internal investigation. Osbourne had said that she sent texts to Underwood and had apologized for her actions.

Sheryl shared: “I have never been through something like this. I didn’t know whether you were supposed to communicate or not communicate.  I have not spoken to Sharon, I haven’t had a phone call from her, ” However, Underwood expressed that if a friend were to come up to her and greet her nicely, she would do that same, “When you’re friends with someone, you stay friends,” she said.

So, what did you think about the sentiments shared by Sheryl and Elaine during The Talk? Was this episode helpful in shining a lot on racism, and successful in dealing with what transpired on March 10th with Sharon Osbourne? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
