It’s A Wrap For Mishael Morgan At Y&R

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wednesday turned out to be the final tape date of the exiting Mishael Morgan (Hilary) of The Young and the Restless.

Morgan had made the decision to depart the CBS Daytime drama series several weeks back, and now it was time for her to say goodbye to her cast mates and her role.

Mishael posted via social media two images: one of the CBS Television City iconic building and its parking lots, and the other a gathering attended by many of her castmates including: Bryton James (Devon), Peter Bergman (Jack), Kate Linder (Esther), Daniel Goddard (Cane) and Christian LeBlanc (Michael).

Sharing her sentiments along with the images, Morgan wrote  “…and that’s a wrap. Just over five years ago, I tweeted a pic of CBS to announce the start of my journey on Y&R. Now, I have to say good bye. Sooo bittersweet. Thank you to everyone who supported me on my journey. On to the next adventure!

How do you think Hilary will be written out of Y&R? Sad to hear this was Mishael’s final tape date? Comment below.

I am sorry to see Ms. Morgan go. The character evolved into Y&R’s best bad girl with a heart in a long long time. She reminded me some of Carly from ATWT. You want to take such characters to task for their shenanigans but oh, we understand why Hilary, an outsider, may have made the choices she did. The character was interesting in there was just enough comeuppance and remorse but she could not help stumbling again. And Ms. Morgan is a joy to watch. Not sure writers paid Hilary her due, but Ms. Morgan rose above it all. Best… Read more »

I agree totally. Mishael was a terrific actor and Hillary was one of the best vixen’s YR saw in years. I am definitely not a “Heavon” fan so I wont be sorry to see that story end. But I will be sad to see Mishael depart. I cant wait to follow her to prime time or wherever she goes!

Hilary will lose the baby and leave poor Devon. Devon will turn to men, for comfort. Devon will come out as bisexual.

Lol. That would be quite a twist! But I dont think the brass would let it happen. Many viewers complained about “Tessiah” ( Tessa & Mariah)so CBS and Sony had to tell Mal Young ( Headwriter) to cool it off. Sad because I thought they were a great couple.

OMG, I guess Karen, we are in the few that don’t care for Hilary, or in my case , can’t stand! Maybe we’ll see her in another role, being as nice as they say, she is in person.
Today’s show just compounded my feelings. Strutting around, and almost blowing smoke and fire, because this man didn’t know, or care who she was , Hilary Curtis, goddess to all!

I guess this is more of an addendum? Seems like the M.M lovers might be seeing more of her on GH if rumor is true. Auntie called someone to come break up Curtis and Jordan. What better person, right up her alley!

I will miss her character on Y & R. She did a great job. She could make you love her, despise her and even feel sorry for her. That is great acting. Good luck to her in the future. I am sure it will be a great one.

Davidg

I agree. She was very versatile but I loved her best as a vixen. I can’t to see where her career takes her next. I hope she pops up soon on Prime time. I love nothing better than to see hard working soap stars make the big time. She is one who truly deserves success.

She was a bona fide star of the show, this was not the way to treat her (not granting a proper raise) and Ms. Morgan is making it a win and taking her stellar talents elsewhere. It may be controversial and very hard to find someone who lit up the screen like her, but I’d like to see Hillary recast, even to wrap things up a bit more. I wish Ms. Morgan the best in deserved big opportunities, she is simply awesome.

It’s a shame to see her go. I think the executives should rethink losing so many good actors/ actresses the show is going downhill fast

Y&R has lost a valuable actor and I hope Ms.Morgan will return after realizing Hilary is in her blood. In the mean time, I wish Mishael (a fellow Canuck) a revegerating rest. Thank you for creative acting Mishael, Y&R won’t be the same he 76ll9v .

Wish her the best – she is a talent. But characters CAN be successfully recast – Jason Thompson, Gina Tognoni. Hope they consider this.

They should recast Jordan with Ms Morgan! Can you imagine her with Curtis? It would be so terrific to see this actress paired up with someone who is worthy of her. I am sorry–Duh Yawn just doesn’t cut it.

What a fantastic idea, Harry!! But, Mishael is sooo very sexy, and a minx; she will have the entire PCPD ( all three of them) salivating, scrambling, and stumbling all over themselves for her attention. The trio is already deficient in comportment and skill…imagine having her around?!

So sorry to see Ms. Morgan has left the show. Her vitality and talent will be sorely missed and CBS will have an EXTREMELY difficult time finding an actress whose chemistry with Bryton James will be as good.

if i was making the decision: the storyline has Hilary moving to NYC ‘indefinitely’ for a career opportunity; Devon comes & goes, etc; we dont see Hilary again until its time for their daughter to be born, and that is obiously some sort of huge drama, i suggest involving Lily, and: RECAST Hilary. In my heart i believe that there are COUNTLESS talented young women who could take over this role; as much as i am a fan of Ms Morgan, i encourage the challenge to a young ambitious actress to take the role and make it her own, make… Read more »

Sorry to see her go but shes a very talented woman. She will end up in primetime and film. Guaranteed. I am sadder to see that Sony has opted to drain the talents from the number 1 soap in the US. All this will do is drain the interest. hilary was a complicated character on screen and on paper. Written as a true soap bitch out for revenge, every chance since her first story has been a wishy washy pathetically written example of writers and producers afraid to let a black woman be hated! Hilary should be wealthier than so… Read more »

There are few I have seen who have the ability to shift countenance like Morgan. However, her skill doesn’t move me one way or the other in the Y & R.

To her, recognize your incredible talent; go for it! You deserve it!

Celia
Guest

Hi, Tani,
I don’t think it’s so much a matter of shifting gears, per se…..they are actors, afterall. It is their ‘duty’, LOL, to play any part; depending on their talent.
I do believe that it is whether the viewer accepts the recast after having been spoiled by the original.
Nonetheless, your comment does have merit…..for example—-Billy Miller was a much better Billy Abbott than David Top. Soooo….
My best, Tani.

Another great loss. Mishael is a most formidable thespian.

There is no replacement here, y’all. If there should be, whoever it is, will not do Mishael or Hilary justice. That’s a fact.

Im sorry to see the hillary story come to an end. She was the only excitement in that show anymore.Maybe they will put devon & mariah back together. I will definitely watch for mishael in other things. Shes a very tslented actress. Y&R’s loss someone elses gain. Wish her the best in her future endeavors

If Hillary is to be killed-off she will die in car accidents.
That is a standard for impacting emotional drama.
And ALL actors covet going out in a bang, not a whimper.
or-
she will get involved in Shana’s <-sp drama..
perhaps her drug addict brother will take Hillary out.

I do see Hillary being recast.

Mike Richards Out as EP of ‘Jeopardy!’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’

What has become of the beloved game show treasure Jeopardy!, since the death of its iconic Alex Trebek, will surely at some point be made into a movie with backstage drama galore and breaking headlines news all along the way.

Now comes an official statement from Sony Pictures Television that they have now let-go of Mike Richards from his duties as executive producer of both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

This comes after Richards controversial choice as the new syndicated host amid allegations, lawsuits and what seemed to be the final straw, The Ringer’s report and findings of insensitive and sexist comments made by Richards on The Randumb Show, a podcast he hosted in 2013 and 2014.

Suzanne Prete, EVP, Business and Strategy, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, sent out an internal note to the staff on both shows this morning. The content included that Richards would depart his EP roles effective immediately and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies stepping in to do the job on an interim basis.

According to Deadline, the note read as follows:

Dear Team,

I’m writing to let you know that Mike will no longer be serving as EP of Wheel and Jeopardy! effective immediately.  We had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties we have all experienced these last few weeks. That clearly has not happened.  Michael Davies from Embassy Row has agreed to help with production on an interim basis until further notice. Michael and I will work together with all of you in the weeks ahead to ensure that production remains on schedule and we do not miss a beat as we head into the new season.

I know this has been a challenging time for the entire team, and I want to thank you all for your cooperation and professionalism over these last few weeks. As Ravi mentioned last week, I will be more involved in the day-to-day on our shows moving forward and I am looking forward to working closely with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. 

So, what do you think of all the twists and turns that have now led to Richards ousting as host and his EP duties on two game show? Comment below.
