If this is indeed true, this would be another loss for the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless.   This evening, rumors have been flying around the Internet that Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe) has decided not to renew her contract with the CBS soap opera and will thus be departing the series.

According to a tweet from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, he relates: “NOOOO!!! Has @Theehendrickson chosen not 2 renew her #YR contract? That’s what I’m hearing & don’t like it one bit!   There has been no comment from Elizabeth at this time.

If the talented actress has indeed decided to depart Y&R, it would end her more than six year run in the role of Chloe.  Currently, Elizabeth is major in story with Chloe having an emotional free fall from the ramifications from Delia’s death.

In addition, Elizabeth is still in the running for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for this years Daytime Emmys where she scored a Pre-Nom in the category early last week.  She has been considered a strong contender to make it to the finals.

What do you think about the rumors that Elizabeth may be leaving Y&R?  Would you be sad to see her go?  Share your comments below!

It sure seems like a revolving door in the Casting department at the Y & R. The cast and “recasts” are almost unrecognizable as it is. We have lost so many cast members in the last year, Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller, Emme Rylan, Michael Muhney, Hartley Sawyer, Stephen Nichols, Blake Hood to name a few. If she leaves, I wish her well in her future endeavours. I will miss her for sure.

And all this since JFP took control. Isn’t this exactly what happened when she ruled GH?

Not really. She chopped all of the over-40-year-old actresses back to recurring and then a year later either killed those characters or just never brought them on.

Farren Phelps hasn’t really touched the “oldies” on this show basically because there weren’t many to get rid of.

My bet is that Melody Thomas Scott would be next to get the boot from Phelps.

I didn’t watch GH when JFP was there but I’m fairly certain this is classic Jill. Stephen Nichols, Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller and Michael Muhney are the ones I miss most, especially the latter two. Their performances at the end of January were so amazing, it was both a blessing to see and a burden because they were both gone right after such stellar scenes.

If Elizabeth is leaving, it will be another huge loss for the show, especially after the knockout performances she’s delivered recently. I think she deserves the Emmy this year and I really hope she stays on the show.

They don’t call JFP the Soap Slayer for nothing. CBS is probably wanting a reason to cancel Y&R and JFP will get them a reason. As the ratings keep falling.

You hit the nail on the head. JFP ruined GH, especially not letting Steve Burton have a contract suitable for him and his family. But as you pointed out, Steve is a veteran and she has issues with the Vets. The Vets are the best part of Y&R. Thats been a problem over at GH that was fixed when RC took over. He appreciates mature talent such as Sonny, Alexis, Rick, Julian, Luke, Tracey, Monica, Ava, Duke, and Anna. All these people are in great story lines, over 50, and are great actors. Oh, and Ron is bringing on Donna Mills. Great stuff!

March 9, 2014 9:13 pm

I hope she is not leaving, I love elizabeth she is a wonderful actress. If she leaves, please don’t recast. maybe kevin fisher will turn out gay. I would love that.

March 9, 2014 9:18 pm

I forgot to mention, Greg Rikaart who plays kevin Fisher came out of the closet on twitter 5 months ago, he is so cute and boyish. I think he is so sexy. LoL.

i don’t think it was any secret he was gay but good for him for coming out officially. But I would not count on any gay storylines on Y&R while there are homophobic people in charge over there, if anything Greg might be next on their list to get off the show now that he has come out to social media. Not saying it will happen, but I will not shock if it did.

March 9, 2014 9:21 pm

Considering the career of an actor is most about creating, embodying and creating a pseudo-yet very real character in TV, film and theatre, we have to realize they each need to grow and explore their own potential. Although fans are attached to these very ‘real’ seeming characters on Y&R, they really are the highly skillful creation by that actor. When one thinks of the multiple actors who have adapted their own talents to the stage with Shakespeare’s plays, or other well known writings for film, we need to feel grateful for their diligence to craft.
My point is that Elizabeth is still a young woman. Six years of her life has been the very disciplined, Monday to Friday devotion to the character, Chloe. Perhaps both as her own person, Elizabeth, and also as the actor creating Chloe, it is a need for her (Elizabeth) to explore other possibilities in her profession.
Often it seems fans are only able to see the character, not the actor behind the character on shows such as Y&R. To feel challenged in any job means to feel the freedom to explore, have personal challenges in the entertainment world that are there for the taking.
IF Elizabeth does choose to walk away from her tole at Y&R, I can wish her the very best in any future choices she may be making. We also need to appreciate Elizabeth may wish to pursue other talents, perhaps enter an entirely new field of endeavour or even attend college or University. Whatever she choose to do, I hope fans of Y&R are able to be nothing but supportive.
All the best Elizabeth, whatever path you choose.
If this could be passed along to her, Michael, I would greatly appreciate that. Thanks.

JFP knows how to drive them away so she can replace them with her favorites.

Mika…YES…MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!!!!! AGREED!!!!! Jill Farren Phelps has proven (over and over again) that she DOES NOT give a damn about any of us soap fans…AT ALL!!!!! Heartless and clueless woman!!!!!!!

And yet everyone keeps watching?! As long as everyone keeps “saying” they’re going to stop watching but continue to do so JFP will continue on.

When they ratings go down, the bleeding will stop. Until then the higher ups don’t care what happens.

March 10, 2014 5:51 am
Reply to  jaybird369

I despise what JFP she has done to the show, its fans and mostly the amazing talented actors. If you recall while at the helm of GH she did the same thing nearly causing the show to be cancelled. Once she was Fired, the new regime began bringing all the fan favorites back and today GH is far better than Y&R and the ratings have improved drastically. Just to recap our losses since she has taken control: Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller, Genie Francis, Blake Hood, Emmy Rylan, Hartley Sawyer, Michael Muhney, Stephen Nichols not to mention the loss of our beloved Jeanne Cooper. Now possibly Elizabeth Hendrickson. She continues to hire her FOJ in that untalented boring Steve Burton, recast Abby, Noah, Billy, Kyle, Summer and others with her friends. The rumor is she plans to recast Adam with a former employee as well. Please FIRE this menace to our show, it is already unrecognizable, I refuse to watch and have not since BM and MM left.

Yup, gotta know there’s something stinking up the pot at Y&R, and since all the ship-jumping has happened on JFP’s watch…well you can do the math!
I don’t blame EH for leaving if she does, she’s been stuck in a nowhere relationship for years! I really enjoy her friendship with Chelsea, but I’m guessing MCE will be the next to walk.

March 10, 2014 9:56 am
Reply to  SZima

@SZima MCE will not walk she and Jessica Collins are the two female pets on the show. Concerning EH everybody knows Guza and Phelps fired RH over at GH with the same storyline then fans revolted and they hired her back. I do not think everything is hearts an flowers over there like they all claim. I can tell you one thing JFP could care less about working things out with anyone if she walks they will just replace her character if they decide they need her for story with a FOJ.

March 9, 2014 9:57 pm

I like Chloe so this news kinda sucks. However, aside from Delia dying, the character has mostly been a sidekick/bestie since JFP and Co. took over. They didn’t give her much else besides the pairing with Kevin and those two fit more as a younger version of Phyllis and Michael than as a couple imo. The young set is just underwhelming as a whole I think. Maybe Chloe could crossover to B&B? I wish EH the best!

March 9, 2014 9:59 pm

If Elizabeth Hendrickson leaves than Y&R is losing yet more talent. Her scenes in the aftermath of Delia’s death were amazing and it is easy to see why she is in contention for an Emmy nomination. But as much as I adore Chloe the writing hasn’t been there for her since then. She has become a secondary character in her own daughter’s death. So really I can’t blame Elizabeth Hendrickson for looking elsewhere. She’s talented enough to succeed beyond this show.

I agree, I hate the way they wrote that. All of the focus was on Billy and Victoria. It should have been on Billy and Chloe. Terrible writing.

March 10, 2014 9:56 pm
Reply to  Mema

It was terrible writing. Chloe should have never been in a secondary story relating to her daughter’s death. The story became all about Billy and Victoria when it was HER daughter.

March 9, 2014 10:00 pm

Is Y&R really still the #1 soap?

March 10, 2014 8:29 am
Reply to  katieK

My thoughts exactly. I don’t see how it can be after this past year. I love the show and I really want to see it succeed, but lately the writing has been pretty bad and so many beloved actors have left the show, it’s too much negative without any positive to balance it out.

Cady McClain joining the show and Tristan Rogers’ return have both been positives, but they aren’t enough after Billy Miller, Michael Muhney’s exits, and now maybe Elizabeth Hendrickson’s. Too much talent is leaving the show and not being replaced by viable alternatives.

March 9, 2014 10:19 pm

If this is what Elizabeth needs to do, it’s fine with me. She’ll be dearly missed. I’ve enjoyed her character Chloe since day one. I wish her all the best in everything she does!

March 10, 2014 12:35 am

Y&R can not afford to lose more great actors/characters..
It is starting to be unrecognizable as the awesome soap it once was..
Without the greats;
Katherine/Jeanne Cooper
Adam/Michael Muhney
Billy/Billy Miller
Phyllis/Michelle Stafford
Chloe/Elizabeth Hendrickson (perhaps)

.. Y&R seems empty..

Not to mention ALL the other good characters it has lost all in the past 2 years,,

March 10, 2014 4:07 am

Hope that Elizabeth stay with YR

March 10, 2014 4:39 am

Haven’t watched since MM and BM left. Chloe used to be one of my favorites but, except for the Delia death story she’s been given less and less in regards to story lines. I don’t think she’ll be missed. Maybe Kevin will go next (GR)

March 10, 2014 5:22 am

A great loss for Y&R if this is true. EH has grown so much as an actress since her AMC days. She would be a great Sam Morgan if GH ever had to recast.

March 10, 2014 5:59 am

It wouldn’t surprise me at all seems like the writers have really messed up . Alot of the actors are probably as upset as all of us how stories are being written out just don’t say anything out loud . I believe that Elizabeth is also on the show that comes on ION at night drawing a blank right now [maybe flashpoint] is the name ??? but I wish her only the best . She has done a great job. Y& R needs to wake up before they lose their show , losing alot of good actors lately

March 10, 2014 6:00 am

This show has been a disaster for awhile now….The dark & boring storylines, the constant cast changes, & the non compromising from TPTB. if she leaves it would just be another nail in the coffin of this show….What is going on with the show….so many people blame JFP….is she the only one with power….whoever is making decisions over there better rethink what they’re doing….I was a long time viewer…off & on…..I just don’t look forward to watching any more….I do…because I want all the soaps to succeed….but really , enough’s enough !

March 10, 2014 6:15 am

Its okay, let her go. They can write her off and send her to Fairview for now.

March 10, 2014 6:57 am

Who can blame her? She was barely a bit player in her own “daughters” death.

JFP,and her hatred of strong females characters, has managed to drive away all the real talent on this show.

Soon enough Nu-Noah will be considered a veteran.

Rob…that annoying Nu-Noah a veteran??? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Dude…good one…LOL!!!!!

March 10, 2014 8:19 am

I sure hope she renews. Elizabeth has made the role of Chloe so rich and layered. I really enjoy her performances, but wish her well in whatever she decides to do.

March 10, 2014 9:53 am

This is not suprising because a lot of people left the show for different reasons but it think it is the storylines with the characters and the path that the show is taking that make actors to leave

March 10, 2014 9:53 am

I like chloe but there is nothing else for her to do but leave. Without Delia, chloe is really not needed……..just saying…………..

Mary SF
March 10, 2014 10:00 am

The character had so much potential but over the years Chloe has been watered down to a bit player that I would not blame the actress playing her for wanting to leave to explore other roles. But right now we don’t know if this is a rumor, fact or a ploy to get a better contract by getting her fans riled up over her leaving. So until it is official it a bit premature to speculate on why she is leaving and who is to blame.

March 10, 2014 10:39 am

I love Liz, but if it’s her decision to leave, don’t try turning it into something it is not, like Miller leaving or MM being fired.

It is was it is.

Even today soap “stars” can move on if they wish, and she’s had a fantastic year and has been featured a LOT since JG started writing in Oct 2012.

Having said that, I hope she stays.

Again, if she chooses to leave, there is no smoke.

Michael Logan reported she almost didn’t re-sign last time.

People can say whatever they want, but if the actress wants to leave stop the silly talk.

March 10, 2014 12:22 pm

I like her, but right now, don’t care if she stays or goes.

March 10, 2014 12:34 pm

I suspect that she was let go and this is Sony’s way of putting the best spin on it. The fact is she hasn’t been interesting to watch since her affair with Billy ended, about six months or year after she joined the show. Pairing her with Kevin was the final nail…Maria/Scott/Hogan are to thank for that.

March 10, 2014 12:58 pm

The show is an utter mess. The actors are leaving for a reason. The show no longer works. You cannot have such a mass exodus and expect the show to survive. A popular show thrives because of its continuity of the cast. I do not blame Elizabeth. Her stories have been dreary and sad. The show was so much more vibrant and fun under Maria Bell. I put the blame on JFP period. Her focus is all wrong.

March 10, 2014 1:52 pm

I really do wish they would do a gay storyline with Kevin, it’s sooo long over due. This is their chance. As much as I would hate to see Chloe go, I can get over it if there is sufficient story to go along with it. You know, Chloe goes of that nuthouse all the crazies go to on Y&R, Kevin is devastated and heartbroken. He starts having issues again about the childhood closet, and “Terrible Tom”. his mean step-daddy. About this time, Alex finally comes out of the closet, confides in Kevin, and that’s when he is finally able to be honest about himself as well. There ya go. That’s how I see it. Boom, somebody give me a job. woopwoop.

Jeff…I think that your idea actually makes a WHOLE LOT OF SENSE!!!!! I don’t see why not. And, besides…Greg Rikaart (aka Kevin) is openly gay in real life. I think that Y&R should run with this……….

March 10, 2014 2:30 pm

I remember reading something about Elizabeth saying that it was brave of Billy Miller to leave and dare to think about doing something new, or something like that. I wonder if she was considering it even back then. How wonderful it would be to see Elizabeth and Billy work together somewhere again. Great chem.

March 10, 2014 4:21 pm

I like EH, she is a good actress! I don’t blame her, I’d leave too, all the writers have her do is cry, gets old. Dee should have never been killed, story line was not worth it. Maybe she could take Kevin, Lily, & Summmer, with her….On another matter I am so tired of Victor having his hands in every story line. While I am on a rant please give David Ton another shirt, he looks young now but the shirt he had on today makes him look like a little boy. I want to know why he is not in jail?? Oh well glad for FF…..

Thanks! I hate to say mean things about an actor, but it’s the truth. Not impressed with DT either..Can the casting dept. not see how an actor comes across on tape before they hire them.. there are a few more that need to be recast..JPF has just ruined Y&R, I thought MAB was bad enough.

March 10, 2014 4:32 pm

If she does opt to leave the show, I can’t say that I blame her. Chloe has been an afterthought in her own stories for years — she’s been pretty much ignored in the story of her daughter’s death so that it could be all about whipped Billy and his self-centered wife and before that she was in the abysmal cat burglar storyline with Kevin where all the “action” took place off-camera and then they talked about it at Crimson Lights.

March 11, 2014 6:25 am

I cannot believe this! Elizabeths role as Cloe reached its peak of displaying this actresses talent , when she played the ongoing scenes dealing with the loss of a child.

Everyone involved in those scenes did a wonderful job of dealing with this painful subject and having experienced this type of loss myself this isssue and it touched me deeply. all actors involved did a fine job on this but Elizabeth was the very best and continues to be. it is very odd that all involved in this storyline suddenly leave,.

i hope Elizabeth does not go but i know this part brought out her best as an actress and the story line helped me personally. i wish more soap story lines were of this quality instead of the endless changing of bed partners. sue

March 11, 2014 8:42 am

I’d say she is leaving a SINKING SHIP! What the he** are they doing to a show?! Think this will keep them #1 ?
She may have left on her own volition, because the writing is on the wall. Jill ‘s confidence is based on temporarily high ratings. We’ll see if they stay that way.
Like Michelle Stafford, better to get out before they are all umemployed and looking for work at the same time.
This is a terrible foreboding. So sad. Loved Chloe & EH . But I quit awhile back.

March 11, 2014 10:52 pm

Omg.. NOT ANOTHER ONE! Y&R plzzz get it together. Any more losses and his soap is done. As for chloe, stay where you are! Your talent is needed.

It is the Young and Restless not the Old and Bitter. Many of the story lines are rather repetitive with the on going theme of infidelity. A good house cleaning to the story lines would be a lot more productive than the continuing actor changes which have occurred over the last few months. I’ve bee watching since 1974 and I must say that I am quickly losing interest with the show. A bit more reality would go along way.

April 24, 2014 12:40 pm

No I would not be sad too see her go. I wish she was leaving, good riddens.

May 27, 2014 3:44 pm

Y and R is sooooooo stupid!!! Boring and petty and the new Billy talks like Marlon Brando and Nikki talks like a porn star…..bahhhh. I want the old Y&R back

July 16, 2014 4:15 am

The reason I started watching Y&R is because of Elizabeth H. Sorry to see her go too . Geez, can Y&R afford to lose all the top rated characters? When “Chloe” left that was it. I’m done watching soaps. Might as well watch stupid reality tv instead…there’s enough of it.

The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.
