Marcy Rylan The Next To Go as The Young and The Restless Continues Its Cast-Cuts!

We did not see this one happening!  The talented Marcy Rylan (Abby Newman) also found out that she has been let-go from the number one soap, The Young and the Restless today!  Earlier, we reported that Genie Francis (Genevieve) was pink-slipped with the show citing budget cuts as the reason, and according to Soap Opera Digest the same holds true for Rylan.   She was told it was a budgetary issue which precipitated her dismissal.

One source told SOD, “No one ever imagined that Em’s [as she is known by the cast] job would be in danger. After all, her character is a Newman and an Abbott. This just proves that there are going to be a lot of surprises with these budget cuts.”

Rylan took to her Twitter account this evening confirming the news of her departure tweeting, “I had a blast at Y&R and I’m taking all those awesome memories with me! I am so excited to see what will come next! Love you all! XOXOXO

So what do you think of Rylan being shown the front door? Good move or a really dumb one?  And, who do you think will be next to go in Genoa City?  Let us know!

Dumb move, and I heard Debbi Morgan was let go too, So my guess Darnell Williams could be next.

I was shocked. There will not be any Abbotts left. Kyle is the worst and so is Chelsea. I pray they go! I think they need Abby! Drucilla MUST come back asap!

No I wanted to see how Kyle was going to handle Summer. Chelsea is pathetic but endearing in a sad way.

OOOH I LOVE Abby! Sharon is the only favorite of mine left! Why don’t they kill off the girl who is so bad at acting Chelsea instead???

I don’t watch Y & R any more, but I always liked her as Abby, and I loved her as Lizzie on GL. I would be great if she showed up on my show. Days of Our Lives needs some women in that age bracket for all those single guys running around Salem….Hopefully Genoa City’s loss will be someone else’s gain SOON.

If she ends up on DAYS I will start watching that one again, that’s for sure.

Excellent idea…Marcy Rylan as a recast of Belle perhaps? Either GH or DAYS needs to grab her.

Phil

Better idea would be for her to show up as Serena Baldwin on GH! GH is the best written show on daytime, and one of the best written on tv period! Marcy deserves a well written character to sink her teeth into. Come on Frank and Ron, make it work! Kristina can go back to school to make room for Serena!

I pray then they at least bring Drucilla back

Chelsea should of been the first to go

Let’s get real people. This show is doomed and no one can save it. It is really sad because back in the day((William Bell,creator/writer), it was the best soap on the planet. And Bold and Beautiful was # 2!

Y&R has gotten awful lately and this is just the latest. If Harmony goes next, I won’t be sad as quite frankly her and Neil bore the crap out of me. What really has me tuning out Y&R though is the dragged out stories (Paul’s trial, Victor missing, Phyllis’ history rehash, etc. All these stories have been taking too long to resolve with no end in sight. Oh and why does the show insist certain characters have the same conversations over and over again? Like how many times must I see Michael demanding the truth a million times from various characters? Currently his fav repeat offender is Ronan, asking him over and over why he is helping Phyllis! UGH!

More and more lately I am changing the channel from Y&R cause the show has gotten so dull. I find Judge Alex more entertaining LOL.

A few more comments-glad Genie Francis was let go cause she was wasted on Y&R and I hope GH entices her back with a great story. Don’t want Drucilla back cause her big mouth and awful loud fashion tastes always annoyed me before and no doubt would again if she came back. Y&R needs to step up the pace and learn to end storylines before the audience falls asleep or changes the channels from boredom of waiting for them to end.

Beth

my only comment…..If you are a blonde female on YnR…..your best move is to make an appointment with the hairdressers on your show ASAP. A dark brown/black head is “now in charge’….

Abby can be irritating, but should the character be shown the door, I don’t think so. There are other characters who have not caught on, who should have been dismissed before Genie and Marcy. JFP is at it again!!

Not suprised with Eileen Davidson being let go. I can only imagine what JFP is going to do next. The show did need an overhaul, cast was too big. Would be all about Drucilla coming back with a different actress. NO VICTORIA ROWELL.. She causes to much trouble. Just my opinion.

Wasn’t Miss Davidson released under the production team led by Maria Arena Bell?

Yes she was. People really need to do their research better.

Just as I think the lay offs can’t suck any worse, they do! Who will be left at this rate? Keep this up and next month we won’t recognize ANYONE!!!! Then you can be sure, I will be gone!!

Cuts need to happen. You may not agree with it at all but nothing pleases everyone. You are welcome to leave anytime you want 1 viewer won’t make a difference.

But two and three and four viewers will make a difference.

No not really.

TBH, I am not surprised. With Ashley gone and Tucker not really in her life, there’s no point of holding onto Abby nor Emme. I am not too upset with this casting decision; loose ends need to go and she’s a loose end. It’s the business.

I’m adding “ATWT Fan” onto my title due to someone else stealing the name Scott.

DUMB DUMB MOVE. I love Marcy/Abby. The character adds a lot to the show. There are so many other characters I’d cut before Abs.

Guessing Carmine is also out the door.

Robin
Robin

This is a BIG mistake!! MAB never gave her a storyline worthy of her talent. There is so much that could’ve been done with Abby and Marcy Rylan would have been up to all of it! There are so many other characters that are dead weight on Y&R right now – this doesn’t look good for the main families on there!

Christine

That’s for sure!

the bloodbath has begun!!!!

Iakovos
Iakovos

The cast needs paring. Budegtary issues aside, there are just too many players on the canvas. Y&R once played out without Newmans and Abbotts. Once upon a time, they were the new families. Perhaps JFP and company have a new family unit planned to come to power in Genoa City. Or the show will make major use of core characters and keep them very busy. Fall will bring winds of change to Y&R, it seems. And I know it will cause lots of buzz here. Are you ready for that Michael?

Also: I think the liberal SORAS-ing of the younger generation proved detrimental. too muc, too fast, I guess. Y&R missed the boat on developing some serious and compelling teen storylines. Stories and experiences we as viewers would have to build our relationships with these younger characters. Just because they show up one day as an adult with the name Abbott and Newman is no guarantee we should care about them. They are as much strangers to us as anyone else.

boes

That’s really too bad. I think Marcy brings a lot of charm to her character. And I also think she’s a pretty decent actor. They’ve saddled her with some lousy storylines but she’s always been watchable.
If they need to thin the younger herd – and they do – then they would do better to get rid of the folks who play Eden and Kyle – and do that ASAP.

Donna
Donna

I agree I rather that Eden and Kyle go. I have no attachment to either of them as soon as Eden clear ‘s Paul. Then they made the stupid move to get rid of the only two that we do have an attachment to with Abby and the new Noah. When Kevin was just fine. The biggest mistake was to had these kids grow up before their time. That’s why we loved Cassie so much is because we watched her grow up. They have made Sharon into a monster. I can hardly watch Phyllis. I want the old Nick and the old Sharon back. I am tired of the back & forth after all these years with Victor & Nikki. Now there are only three Abbotts left and one of them I could careless. Abby made us smile. I really thought they would put Gene and Tucker together. Harmony and Sarg. If they replace Lily then I will only watch on Daniel Goddard day’s. I have tried to help save the Soaps but how can we save them if they keep doing stupid stuff like this.

Liz
Liz

Kevin barely showed up and was a bore as Noah, that is why there was no buzz when he was released.

Jules

Well it’s not like they’ve been giving her much story or screentime lately. It’s a surprise, but not that much of a surprise. Others should go before her, just based on sheer history and connection to the canvas, but I won’t lose sleep over this.

Best of luck to the actress.

I hate to see anyone unemployed, but Abby was totally useless.

It’s like Dumping KS as Maxie. JPH is STRIKING. Hope Abby takes off with Carmine. Victor would Freak.

Only like 4 people been cut and most of them were useless.

Rob

Depends on who you care about. I like Genie Francis but she is being wasted here as well as Debbie Morgan, but Marcy Rylan brings a lot to the show. She out acts the rest of the younger cast.

Ryan

This is a stupid move. This is the first cut I don’t agree with. Marcy is the best young actress they have. she was great as Lizzie on Guiding Light also. This makes me scared of who else JFP plans to off!

Hopefully one of the other three shows will be smart and swoop her up soon!

Christine
Christine

Oh wow. I am just shell-shocked by this one. Marcy Rylan is an absolute sweetheart and it breaks my heart.

I do not believe this ONE is for budget reasons. I just bet that JFP already has someone in mind to REPLACE Marcy Rylan as Abby. Mark my words. It isn’t because of the $. I smell a rat in this one!

Beth
Beth

You probably right. JFP will do to YnR what she did to GH.. She has NO alligence to anyone. All are far game. I do feel for Marcy R. She just returned from her second maternity leave. Another out of work person. Have been attempting to figure out who the person is that she will write the show around as she did Maurice B/Sonny. As all my posts concerning this have ended YnR loss is GH gain. JMO

Ditto on the Eden and Kyle remark. They add nothing to the canvas. Really sorry to see Marcy go.

What is wrong with them? Are they crazy cutting out Abby? A core character from TWO core families gone? That is just too stupid, are they writing how to ruin the show or what!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I can see how Abby is gone; Ashley left town and her relationship with Victor isn’t as solid since Brad died so I can see why they’d let her go. She’s a loose piece of the puzzle. Unless Eileen came back, I never saw Abby sticking around.

And PS: Since someone is stealing my identity, I’m adding “ATWT Fan” to my title!

I think Marcy did an outstanding job as the brash and sassy Abby! Going to miss seeing her; she was always so unpredictable and brought a LOT of life to that character. I just hope they don’t let that hunky Marco Dapper go now!! Y&R needs that eye candy!!

Patrick

The Abbotts: were always my favorite. the lone Jack…. it’s kinda sorta like not enough now. back to just Jack. course, there’s Billy. but, no John, Mamie, Ashley, Traci, Abby.

Budget cuts. Then why do the networks pay the hosts of talk/information shows so much? JFP is going to ruin Y&R!

Liz

Because it’s only like 3 or 4 hosts to pay. Soaps have more people and the vets get paid the most separately. Talk show are also cheaper to produce.

marcy rylan being let go is a tragedy. she is a wonderful actress. poor debbi morgan and genie francis i will miss them dearly. someone should poison jill pharren phelps coffee. she is turning into a witch. jill is a coward. what a stupid woman. why don’t you fire daisy eden kyle. i heard there is more firings. without marcy rylan i may not watch young and the restless again. jill pharren phelps almost killed general hospital. now she wants young and the restless cancelled. i hope they fire jill pharren phelps very soon.

This is a big disappointment. I love Marcy, and thought “Abby” added the spice and unpredictability that you can enjoy on soaps.

As talented as she is, I know she can find other work, but I will really miss her on Y&R, if I continue to watch much longer.

Good luck and best wishes, Marcy!

jill pharren phelps is a big big bully. firing marcy rylan is a big mistake. i hope jill pharren phelps knows what she is doing. also firing debbi morgan is a bad move. jill is going to ruin the young and the restless. as much as i hate maria arena bell. she was better in story telling than jill. i hate to say this fire jill pharren phelps, and bring back maria arena bell. yes maria arena bell fired eilleen davidson, but i can forgive her for that. fire kyle eden and sharon case. that would be better for all of us. sharon case i used to love her. now she is annoying as hell. can’t act at all. my german shepard dog could act better than sharon case and kyle abbott. lol

Liz

Harmony was boring. You think Victor marrying Sharon and Cane’s 3458 history rewrite was good storytelling? MAB wrote a bunch of BS for 4 years. SHE needed to be fired. If you do not like what JFP has wrote for past soaps then you are welcome to stop watching the show. Most Y&R viewers have not seen her past work so we will give her a chance but we do not want to see MAB’s horrendous work anymore.

Jared

Beautiful, talented actress, but Abby is annoying and poorly written, plus I’m so over and tired of aging legacy characters and turning them into bratty teenagers or young adults with chips on their shoulders. It’s just plain jarring to the longtime viewer.

This show is #1 but has less than 5 million viewers watching daily which is not good for soaps especially compared to the golden age. Only MAB’s castings and characters are getting axed so far where they were not well received by most of true Y&R fans.

Oh she IS striking JFP – did anyone read the last couple of SOD interviews where she said she wasn’t going to do this?! She lied!! Some I can see as MAN budgeting, but some of these is “overkill” pun intended!! :o:P This is JFP MO & w only 4 soaps on the air, she is certifiable.. no wonder GH is better off without her..

disgrace, the new team is getting rid of the best of the best. Loved Abby, Debbie Morgan, J landon and most of all Genie Francis. Silly line, budget cuts, Guess I need to to take a budget cut, stop watching it and save a little electricty. Bad move but we were all waiting for this to happen. She’ll ruin this show like she has all the others. Thanks be she is out of GH and it is GREAT now.

Y&R Execs …this is ridiculous! Marcy Rylan is a great actress …and she brought lots of fun and her own sense of style to the show! If you want to make cuts …cut the crappy Sharon storyline …we’re over it …boring! Paul’s storyline …is dragging a bit and that needs to get some fire underneath it. Eileen Davidson should have never been cut from the show. They’ve tried different “Ashley’s” over the years …but nobody owned the character like Eileen! The Kyle-Eden shag-fest is getting a little old …and how about her memory by the way! And now I suppose Daisy isn’t going to remember either?! If the writers don’t pick up their socks on this show …I just might forget to watch Y&R … and turn to General Hospital instead!

HI! As a ‘Fervent ” viewer for almost20yrs, I was soooo “surprised & sad as many of my “friends, that Abby has left the show…
We thought that she was “scouted” for a MOVIE” as she is just “gorgeous” looking. She gave that ” pizazz, you viewers, young and Not so old enjoy seeing.. My husband who is in his late 60’s got a ” kick” seeing her.. I personally thought that just her “young beautiful look, would bring in lots of ” younger viewer”… Well, if no one wants her on soap, I hope she will become a BIG STAR MOVIE MAKER…
Thanks for reading me & many of my friends from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

If we are doing cast cuts get rid of the actors who should be an embarrassment like Finn, Neal, pity party Nikki (how much longer do we have to watch her revolting drinking and whinning) oh and lets not forget Lavonne Winters. Horrible actors….lets give someone else a try! Please! It isn’t that the stories are not interesting it is that they are such a waste of time. Who wants to watch bad acting. Put them on a plane with a crash where they are permanently dead.

I loved the old Abey Newman, I think Y and R is making a huge mistake! They are bringing on all these new characters, some story lines are weak and boring! Hopefully won’t get rid of Billy and Victoria, I also love Chelsea, Dylan and Avery! Hopefully Y and R won’t forget the older characters that got them to forty years!

I totally love you as Abby Newman, you were the best, your personality that came through for the wild and wacky Abby was fantastic your a great actress and no one will ever be that good at the Abby Character as you. You were totally fantastic and I am saddened to hear you are gone. You will do well in this industry. Your hot, sexy, cute and damn sassy girl, keep it up and be strong. Missing you

Congratulations are in order to The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) who is pregnant, and expecting her first child with her man, Elan Ruspoli.  The happy duo eloped back in July and now Jacqui is five and a half months pregnant.

Apparently, Jacqui shocked the cast during a fashion show catwalk scene when she made the announcement and said, “I just wanna let you all know: your girl is pregnant!”  ET was there and captured the moment.

However, B&B’sexecutive producer and head writer Brad Bell had a leg up on the announcement telling ET:  “She (Jacqui) told me about a month ago, and she told me in person and came up to my office.  I’m thrilled.  I’m a father of four kids myself, and she’s just fallen in love with her husband and now she’s falling in love again with a child. It’s just a wonderful, wonderful thing.”

Just if and how the pregnancy gets written in, or out of Steffy’s storyline remains to be seen.

Share your congrats to Jacqui and the happy couple for their burgeoning family via the comment section below, and according to the actress she will reveal the gender of the baby in two weeks!
