Was hoping her like Austin would come back to y n r since they were josh creations back in his last run. Summers become such a bitch he would ve brought some grounding for her.
Jessica is such a strong actress and Genoa city could use a true heroine right now. I liked her and Nick and the nick character could also use some straigthening out.
Fingers crossed Josh can grab her part time?! Her deperature was great acting but i heard she left on bad terms because of the alleged rape story with Joe that they rewrote las min. Josh could make it right..
Speaking of Josh creations a rehabed Carmine, Marco Dapper would be exciting and hot to bring back for a Lauren, Michael , Fenn story?. Him and Fenn were friendly back when and Lauren wasnt too happy…

According to court documents on Friday via TMZ, Justin is citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split.

Justin and Chrishell were last seen together in public last week on November 14th at a Hollywood Reporter-sponsored pre-Golden Globes party.  Reps for both actors have you to share statements or make a comment.

Hartley and Stause tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch back in October 28th, 201, which was four years to the day after they met.

As daytime fans know, Justin and Chrishell met when they were both part of the soap opera community.  Justin was last on daytime as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless.  Hartley has one child, Isabella, from a previous marriage to another soap actress, Lindsay Korman, who he met when they both were on the defunct NBC soap Passions. Justin and Lindsay were married for 8 years.
