Jordi Vilasuso is exiting The Young and the Restless and his role of Rey Rosales.  The actor who previously won a Daytime Emmy for Guiding Light and has also appeared on All My Children and Days of our Lives took to his Instagram to announce his departure.

In the post, Jordi expressed a bit about being let go and his new venture, a podcast project with his wife, Kaitlin: “Playing Rey Rosales and being part of the Rosales family was a beautiful chapter in my career. I was proud to represent my culture on daytimes #1 drama and work with an incredible cast and crew that I will miss dearly. Thank you @youngandrestlesscbs for always welcoming me and giving me the opportunity to tell stories that impacted millions. As this door closes, others will and have opened. If you’re interested in hearing a little more about my story, check out our podcast, @makingitwork where @kaitlinvilasuso and share some more details of my exit and dig into embracing change!🙏❤️💪”

Soap Opera Digest also shared a statement from Jordi where, in part, he thanked his scene partner, Sharon Case: “Thank you to Sharon Case (Sharon) and the rest of the cast for their craft, support, and professionalism … The show has been number one and continues to be because of the incredible work ethic and passion from its leadership, cast, production, and crew. I will miss it, remember it fondly, and look forward to what the next chapter will be!”

No word yet on Vilasuso’s last airdate.

I hope Days of Our Lives can bring Jordi Vilasuso back as Dario Hernandez. The Hernandez clan only consists of Rafe and Gabby (with a “y”). I loved how A. Martinez returned, and then they cast the mother and Dario returned, too. I don’t recall the stories happening but then A. Martinez, Jordi Vilasuso and the mother went nowhere.
If DAYS has so some sense, they would bring Jordi back as Dario and pair him up with Ava Vitali. Jordi is a class act. I don’t know much about podcasts, however, the guy needs a paycheck… NBC/DAYS – Bring Jordi back.

NOOOOOOO. He did not work as Dario.

Would love to see him back on Days but I could see him on GH too. Good actor and ridiculously handsome…like makes no sense. Lol

I agree, Drake. GH is desperately in need of same male beauty. Thank goodness for Chase. And I’m soooo tired of Sonny’s glum mug or his Chesire Cat grin that’s supposed to be charming, scary, cute, or all three rolled together.

Chase is definitely holding it down for GH. Unlike Days, where it’s an embarrassment of riches. Eli, Shawn, Xander, nuSonny. Swoon. lol

Rey was best when he was disciplining Mia for acting out they way she used to. So much potential Rey, Mia, Arturo and Lola had. What I wouldn’t give to be entertained like that again! Now we get Mariah and Tessa two months later and still discussing wedding plan ideas! I really enjoyed the Rosales and it’s too bad the last of them Rey is about to leave!

Karen Chalmers

I totally agree that their family was a very fresh and interesting part of Y&R. I thought for sure that the writers were going to put Sharon and Adam together and then Rey and Chelsea together! I’m very disappointed

Such a waste of a charismatic and talented actor. He could light up the screen but was never really given a chance on Y&R by the lackluster writing. He and the viewers deserved better. Wishing Mr. Vilasuso all the best, and shame on Y&R for wasting the opportunity the had with him.

JenW

I so agree with this. I first saw him on AMC and have liked him since then. I’m really disappointed with this news. Instead of stupid “back from the dead” storylines and the never ending Tess/Mariah wedding plan talk, it’s sad that the show can’t write for some of the talented cast they have.

Karen Chalmers

Exactly.

Soaphound

Gotta agree here, too, JenW. I’m convinced less planning went into Charles and Diana’s nuptials! Just wish that cute Noah would stop swooning over Tessa. It’s gone from bittersweet to just plain uncomfortable.

So are they going to bring Steve Burton and Dylan back? Is that why he was let go? It will be interesting to see.

Why when they get great actors they don’t last what’s going on on the Y/R I’ve been watching it for the last 42 years and don’t miss an episode I have it recording for I can enjoy all five days on my weekends as what happened to Ashland I don’t really enjoy the new actor that is playing Ashland now sorry no offense on the man himself just that the other gentleman was perfect we all make mistakes please reconsider his return and please don’t let go if ray his perfect in his part also thank you

Damien
Guest
Damien

Absolutely
The new Ashland has completely changed the character. I don’t like him at all. Robert Newman plays him like a slimy politician, always pointing his finger at Victoria. They have no chemistry. When Richard Burgi played him you felt some sympathy for him and I wanted him and Victoria to make it! Y n r really blew it when they fired him . Now it s going to be Victor and Billy to the rescue. Again.

As long as they don’t have him have an affair with Chelsea. Ray would never do that. He’s been cheated on before and it is just not in his character. He would not cheat on Sharon and especially not with Chelsea.

Rey has been boring pretty much from day 1. I’m glad he’s leaving.

Michael mealor and Susan Walters back and with the newbie being used for the Abbott story, maybe they needed money so he was expendable. Days should bring him back to beef up the Nicole/Rafe/Ava story.

Damien
Guest
Damien

Yes
Ava and Rafe were sidelined for Nicole and they have no Chem. Opportunity was there to finally give Rafe a lasting love intrest, everyone knows Eric is Nicole’s true love

Violet Lemm

Sorry, can’t stand Nicole. Eric is too good for her, but alas they have never found anyone worthy of him. As far as couples go I’m wondering how Chloé’s mom and Ben’s dad ( gosh, can’t remember their names) will work out and how long he can keep her in the dark about his true self?

Rey was a good guy. He never found his niche in the show. Him and Sharon were a horrible match. And, anytime the show makes you a detective, you are toast! Ask Paul Williams!

Chance is going to be the new cop in town. They didn’t need Rey.

Sorry, Let Chance stay home and rock the baby. They never used Rey, only his shoulder to cry on or his influence at the P.D., people call him boring , that’s the role he was given,, not the “bad boy” he’s meant to play. The other Chance or Dillon would be better than pretty boy Chance they have now. I would never like Rey and Chelsea together either. Sorry Joe, for the rant.

Violet…I think most detectives are wasted in soaps. It wasn’t just Rey, or Chance, but Chase and Dante on GH. And “no” to Rey with Chelsea or Sharon. They just never gave him an interesting role or the right woman. I’m sorry to see him go. Good luck to him.

Soaphound

Can you imagine, Joe, how “tough” Chance will be? A perp will steal his hair gel and he’ll have to take a leave of absence.

One of the most boring characters to ever hit Young and the Restless . Now get rid of Jason Thompson, Melissa Ordway and we will be making some good cuts ! Abby and Billy are the most annoying people on the show . Bring back Mari Jo , Tara , or Patty ! Cast a new Tucker . Merge all of these stupid company’s into three competing company’s it’s too many to care about . And some of these sets look so cheap . Darken the rooms, bring back original music , hire Maria Arena Bell again . The show… Read more »

Thank You, George! Jason Thompson has destroyed Billy for me. Billy Miller created a sweet, sexy, flawed, good-hearted screwup that was always lovable. Even Burgess Jenkins had a sense of humor and wildness in the role. This version of Billy is selfish, morose, and seemingly incapable of joy. I’ve read that Woody Allen’s original title for “Annie Hall” was “Anhedonia” — the inability to feel pleasure. That’s Jason Thompson’s version of Billy to a tee.

All the best to Jordi in the future, but his character has been a non-entity for most of his run. Most of his scenes in the last year have been him sitting at Sharon’s coffee house talking. Sharon and Nick are endgame, and it is long past time they were reunited. Nothing else makes sense. To introduce another love interest for either of them just makes them look vapid and desperate. Capitalize on the legacy 28 year history between Nick and Sharon and get them back together. They were a great couple for over ten years when they faced life… Read more »

LOL, Violet. I was rooting previously for a Sharon and Adam reunion but I’m beginning to like the Sally pairing, as long as old Adam stays in check. Are they really going to do Nick and Sharon AGAIN? I do like them together but not if they’ll just break up in six months. At least Nikki and Victor have had a good, long run this time.

Kleenex time today. Guess that’s it for the Rosales family on Y&R. I really didn’t want Rey/Jordi to leave, and certainly not the way they ended his time on Y&R.
