Mishael Morgan Reveals Why She’s Taken ‘A Bit of a Step Back’ From Y&R and Gone on Recurring Status

This past June, we all celebrated the groundbreaking victory of The Young and the Restless‘ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) as the first Black actress to ever win in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category during the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

In the months that followed, Mishael has not been seen as much on the top-rated CBS daytime drama, plus when fans noticed she was no longer in the opening main credits, it got them wondering just what is Morgan’s status with the show.

Finally today, via video on her Instagram story, Mishael shared some news after finishing her day of taping in Genoa City.

The Emmy-winner revealed she has indeed gone on recurring status with the show: “I just wrapped my last scenes back at Y&R, and I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag a little bit.  A lot of people have noticed that my name is not on the main credits anymore, and I wanted everybody to know that it was my decision.  I decided, actually, back in December, that I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the show.  I just felt like at this point in my life and this point in my career, I wanted to mix things up a little bit. But Y&R will always be home. I have so appreciated this safe place to land that they have given me, so I know that I can be back. They are like family to me, and coming back just reminds me of that.”

Morgan also thanked the loyal viewers and her followers expressing, “I’m so appreciative of you guys, and all the fans who have supported me along this Y&R journey. But I’m still on it, I’m still going to be recurring, so you’ll still catch me in Genoa City.”

The talented star ended with a tease of projects and roles to come, telling her fans to, “Keep looking out for new things.”

So will you miss not seeing Mishael as much on Y&R?  Are you exciting to see what roles and projects she gets involved with next? Are you glad she is still recurring with the show and will continue to make appearances in stories? Comment below.

Not good news. I think I know where they are going with this. Devon and Elena. Recurring is Jill and Lauren and how often do you see them?

Lee S…Devin and Elena a possibility. Nate and any woman who bats their eyes at him and agrees with his vision. One in particular…Amanda’s lawyer sister who has left the responsibility of their mother with Amanda. I don’t like how writers have changed Nate from a caring person to an ego driven “businessman.”

In total agreement! I can’t wait until he gets screwed over by Victor and Victoria! Will be well deserved!

They’ve sent Imani away to be with their mother, so looks like that whole sorry storyline is caput. Good riddance. The only worthwhile character was Amanda. She was splended and will be missed. Audra appears to be the new flirt in Nate’s life. Possibly she is there because Jill had suspicions about Nate OR, she’s going to backstab Jill and try to take over the company.

While I wish Ms. Morgan the best and respect her decisions, the writers have a challenge. Amanda was forefront with a major story that added characters and connections. Now what? The family she longed for is gone save for a half sister. Amanda did not get a compelling story but Ms. Morgan made the most of it. Maybe after a break, the writers can give Amanda a bit of the verve her twin had. Y&R could use that spark.

Josh Griffith really wasted her the second time around She was soooooo good as Hilary How the ptb signed off on Amanda is almost as head scratching as how Griffith is still allowed to head write this show! She deserved sooo much more screentime than say the previous Abby hour or Sally Spectra who’s been on every damn day! Devon and Elena will make more sense. But I really hope Leigh Ann Rose as Imani quickly comes back and they ptb learn their lesson from Mishael and write for Imani. I want to see a proper old fashioned juicy soap… Read more »

Gina was not one of his pets he is like a lot of head writers they write only for their pets that’s obviously what happened here and it doesn’t matter if you are popular have a fan base as they call it get a Emmy whatever that’s how they work. Frustrating I know.

First of all we don’t ALL love her Emmy win. She absolutely did not deserve to win or to even be nominated – it was the worst Emmy win ever and it robbed Cynthia Watros of HER Emmy. Agree or disagree, I find Amanda Sinclair to be a total snoozefest of a character. I didn’t like her storyline at all in 2021 but she was able to put together a few scenes and win the Emmy with them. Most regrettable! I am glad Amanda isn’t on very much, she is an incredibly dull character. Snark away, I don’t care, she… Read more »

She deserved to win the 1st time but not nomiated, she’s a great actress
not sure what’s wrong with you, don’t watch Y&R stay with GH I do agree that Cynthia Watros could have won as well, she’s a great actress.

The lack of character development is due to the writers. She worked with what they gave her, which wasn’t much.

You need to MOVE ON from the Emmys. She won GET OVER IT

In other words, she won an Emmy and wants to parlay that momentum into getting “bigger and better” roles. Heard it a thousand times and there’s no shame in it. But I truly respect the veteran actors who are playing the same role for years and not always looking for greener grass. As someone who has survived several layoffs over the decades, I think I’d be grateful for a steady gig and a regular paycheck. But that’s just me.

So you think she should just accept the terrible script and waste her clearly superior acting skills? Kudos to her for taking a risk

Amanda was Good I liked her I don’t care for her sister!! She’s the one who pushed Nate to do what he’s doing now!I pray Amanda comes back soon she keeps Her sister in line . Just because Nate and Elena are on a break doesn’t give them the opportunity too CHEAT in my EYES That would say they were never truly committed! Good luck Amanda hurry back so you and Devon can have a Baby if your own

I know Devon and Elena are together in real life but the two are such sad sacks, it won’t be hard consoling each other.Hope they are happier than they appear.

You said it, Violet. But I think Devon is generally a downer. Too Zen and relaxed for me, which translates to sleep inducing. Ms. Sarpy is such a good actress that I actually feel bad for Elena…all these self-centered guys trying to constantly prove something. She needs a totally new guy. Okay Violet, bear with me here: how about Elena and…ADAM. How’s that for thinking out of the box? The more I think about it, the more I like it. But maybe I shouldn’t say it aloud or Nick will suddenly be pointing his, um, attentions toward Elena. He really… Read more »

Anne Heche Final Autopsy Reveals No illegal Substances in Her System at the Time of Fatal Car Crash

The final autopsy report is in, which puts a bit more into perspective what happened to Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), when she crashed her car into a home back in August, which ultimately took her life.

It has been suggested for months that Heche was impaired while driving erratically on August 5th, which ultimately caused her to crash and suffer a life-ending brain injury.

However, the L.A. County medical examiner-coroner‘s office revealed that the final toxicology results (concluded from blood and urine tests taken when Heche went to the hospital) showed the presence of benzoylecgonine, an inactive metabolite of cocaine. That indicates past use, the examiner confirmed. Results also showed prior use of marijuana, but not at the time of injury. There was no alcohol detected in Heche’s system either.

There had been speculation that Anne was inebriated at the time of the accident which was further fueled by an image that appeared to show a liquor bottle in the front seat of her vehicle.  In addition, the Fentanyl detected in Heche’s system was administered in the hospital after her injuries were sustained.

The medical examiner had determined that Anne died of inhalation and thermal injuries. She was trapped in her Mini Cooper for around 30 minutes before she was rescued by first responders. The official report lists sternal fracture due to blunt trauma as another “significant condition.”

Heche was hospitalized immediately following the fiery car crash. She went into a coma and was declared brain dead the evening of August 11th.  However, her body was kept on life support until August 14th when her organ recipients had been found.  She was 53-years-old at the time of her death.

What do you think about the autopsy report on the death of Anne Heche and the ending of such a talented and respected actress? Comment below.

Tony Khan Confirms William Regal’s Exit from AEW to Return to WWE

On Wednesday, ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS, and to promote Saturday’s Ring of Honor Final Battle pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan spoke with the media and answered questions on several topics.

Chief among them is the status of William Regal who reportedly is heading back to the WWE.  In story, Regal was taken out by MJF on last week’s AEW Dynamite, after Regal helped MJF become the AEW World Champion during the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November.   During last week’s episode, Regal was carried out of the ring by stretcher after being clobbered in the head from behind with brass knuckles by the new champ in another swerve.

Today on the media call, Khan reportedly explained the Regal situation sharing that Regal approached AEW executive Megha Parekh and requested to be released form his contract so he could go back and work his “golden years” coaching his son, Charlie Dempsey, and to the WWE.

This all went down around the time Khan was with his mother in Toronto, who was undergoing a major operation when doctors found that she had a spot on her heart and if the spot was removed, that it the best chance of stopping the strokes she was having.  She has already had two strokes, previously.

During this time, Khan arranged a call with Regal and shared that Regal had good intentions for wanting to go back. He was very empathic to the situation, given what he was going through with his mother and his own family at the time.

Khan added that Regal is still with AEW through the holidays, but he wishes William all the best and that it was “hard to see him go”, and they’re going to make some on-screen sacrifices to help him do the right thing for his family.  In addition, Regal’s release was on the condition that he could not be on TV next year, meaning Regal could then only work behind the scenes at WWE, anyway.

Tonight on ‘Dynamite’ look for Khan to address the William Regal situation.

Reports from Pro Wrestling.net, Fightful.com, David Bixenspan

So, what do you think of William Regal obtaining his release from AEW to go coach his son and return behind the scenes to work with the WWE in 2023? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
