Noemi Gonzalez Announces Her Departure From Y&R

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Sunday, another Y&R cast member revealed they are also out and exiting the top-rated CBS Daytime drama.   Noemi Gonzalez, who has been causing trouble for the Rosales family in Genoa City says he is no longer with the series.

In her post on social media, Gonzalez shared:  My love’s it’s been a pleasure.  Then she added:  “I have been honored and blessed with an opportunity to embody such a dynamic character on such a special show! This is the hardest working cast/crew/staff in show business, let me tell you! A special thank you to Jordi Vilasuso, Jason Canela, Marisa Garcia, Kathy Jones and Patricia Denney.

Thank you so very much to Sony Pictures Television and CBS for gracing me with the opportunity to be a part of such an iconic show. But most importantly, thank you to our loyal fans.  Everything I gave was for you and the love of your stories.  I’m going to miss Mia Rosales and Genoa City.  I will be on the air for another month, but I’m off to shake things up elsewhere! Stay tuned for what’s next!

In story, under former Y&R executive producer and head writer, Mal Young, Mia came on to the scene as Rey’s (Jordi Vilasuso) troublemaker of a wife. She first appeared in the middle of November of 2018.

Gonzalez departure follows on the heels of Jason Canela (Arturo), Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) who both shared they are leaving the series, as changes are afoot behind the scenes at Y&R.

So, glad to see Noemi go … or will you miss Mia shaking up Genoa City? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

No surprise and no big loss. Glad the new regime is cleaning up Mal Young’s mess that he left behind.

Mia came on like a firecracker.

The problem with the Rosales family is there were on far too much. They seemed to be on every day and taking up a large portion of story. This made them not too popular with fans. Overall, I like the Rosales family, but they are supporting players and were made to be leads. That is where Mal and Y&R erred.

I don’t know what plans Josh has. I don’t think he needs to undo everything Mal did. Of all the Rosales, I would like Rey to leave the most.

I know a lot of people didn’t like Mia, I was not one of them, she brought some spice to the show. She made you hate her and to me that is good acting. I wish her well in her future endeavors. She is a beautiful lady.
Her time just came to a close.

Congratulations, CeeCeeGirl, et al! It sounds like slowly but surely you are getting your beloved soap back!.Y&R fans are so lucky to have a new regime which is being responsive to audience complaints about unpopular characters by getting rid of them. It’s a shame GH never followed that same policy! Instead of listening to its longtime fans’ opinions regarding who needed to go, the showrunners doubled down on shoving their unpalatable favorites down the viewers’ throats, as if that were ever going to make us like them! It actually had the opposite effect and made us loathe them all the… Read more »

Yes, my Shaybelle…..slowly but surely, Y&R is coming together; getting back into shape……just a few ‘unsewn’ threads here and there still dangling at the seams—-but, I have hope.
You must be a little happy yourself, Shay…..No more Nina! Well, I should say no more Michelle Stafford. I do hope Nina will be recast….too much story left to tell ( Willow–Sasha).
By the same token, I am getting my real Phyllis back!! Yeayyy!!
Everything is rainbows and unicorns on this side of the Mississippi.

Not me. Although I am enjoying Rey and Sharon, Tessa always grated on my last nerve. I am hoping they don’t plan on making it a front burner story. Like I said before, with Kevin hovering in the distance, and Lauren getting caught up with the happenings at Jabot, with Jack back at the helm, it would be nice to see Gloria back at the reception desk and reunite the Baldwins. But their is only so much of Tessa and her insecurities that I can take. I still think she is hiding something from Mariah that has no to do… Read more »

Hi, Soapqueenforever, You bet, my friend….I have been talking about Tessa’s nefarious subterfuge forever!! I feel it in my bones, LOL. I truly think she helped dig JT out of that makeshift grave. Now that his sanity is at bay ( HaHa), JT may have conveniently forgotten ( with the writers’ help) certain details? Whatever it is, I neither like Tessa nor do I trust her. Zach and Ian Ward keep swirling in my head…their insidious selves invading my brain. There are no words to express my elation in anticipation of Mia’s explosive exit. Who’s baby is it?

I know what you mean about Nick and Sharon. But given the chance I think that Sharon and Rey could have some crazy chemistry. Maybe our Y&R is coming back slowly in little bits and pieces. As the old saying goes, tune in tomorrow. Happy viewing!!!!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, Soapqueenforever…I definitely see the chemistry between Sharon and Rey.
Nonetheless, if we think back, Sharon Case seems to have some kind of hidden voodoo-woman-spell, LOL.
She has had chemistry with every actor paired with her….to a certain degree, Sharon even had chemistry with Victor. …HaHa, what a hoot!!??
Sharon represents the eternal city of Rome for Nick….and, after all is said and done, all roads lead to her…..until the next time. Then, it starts all over again.
The new woman with Nick, today? Waaay too tall for him. Mousy!!
Nick is destined to pick up strays……poor thing!!

I am wondering if they are turning Nick into a male prostitute. As of the 4/10 episode this was the second woman he has picked up in a week. And where was poor Christian while he was out carousing.

HA! “Magical Guitar”? Celia, that made me chuckle. On another note, (no word play intended) has anyone else noticed that Tessa looks exactly like Disney’s classic animated version of Snow White? Sometimes I expect to see bluebirds on her shoulder while rabbits and deer help her clean her one room studio apartment.

If I can be granted only one wish for the rest of the year, it would be that Tessa gets sent to prison in another state or country. Her singing reminds me of cats in heat on a hot summer night.

Oh, thank goodness, you hear what I hear, Dr Helen Ruth….right along with Ron. As I said, I am trying to see why this girl is so special. Mariah ( Camryn) does not need boosting—no prop necessary. She stands firmly on the acting ground!!

Hey, Ron, Ahhhh, Tessa!! I am still trying to figure out who she is. Surely the character was not introduced merely for Mariah?? For some reason ‘ye gods’ decided to keep her after the stupid Zach storyline was done—I don’t get her…..not as drastic as Mia, whom we, at least, were in touch with her machinations. But, Tessa? There is no mystifying inspiration to make me want to know more about her. I don’t trust her, period!! That’s all she’s got going for her, in my opinion. The balcony!!!! You crack me up.

The writers blew a golden opportunity two weeks ago– they could have tossed Tessa in jail on extortion charges. Then she could really sing the blues. Shakespeare (if indeed “he” was really a “she”– we’ll never know his/her true identity) might hae very well written a “Juliet and Juliet” story. Maybe today’s 50 mph winds on the Illinois/Wisconsin border will aide in the balcony plunge! Oh– we’re down to two college choices (FINALLY). Syracuse or Boston College. We’re so torn! But, boy, Syracuse really is pouring it on thick– nice package, admittance into a very select law school, and the… Read more »

Yes, Ron….I agree. Tessa should have been thrown in the hoosegow!!…..as I said, there are different sets of legal rules in Soapland. LOL…. Indeed, Ron…..was Juliet a she? I can imagine how ‘gorgeous’ the Shakespearean female looked on a 16th/17th, Elizabethan stage. So, you’re down to the nitty-gritty with College for your son? Tough choice–both excellent institutions. I do have a weakness for Boston proper—the city has an unconquerable heartbeat. That’s the attraction. The mystery. By Syracuse-PTB’s avid response? ….sounds like your son won’t have a problem acclimating himself within any academic environment….. Good luck!! Yeah….school’s year-end is around the… Read more »

She and Marian have got to be the most boring I’ve ever seen. As far as her magical guitar, if Devon takes her back, hopefully she’ll fly away on it somewhere else.

Hey, Violet,
I think the couple is boring, as well…..but, I cannot blame Mariah.
Tessa is a downer, and because Mariah loves her, she tries to accommodate. The result “ain’t” pretty!!
I don’t find Tessa’s voice interesting, either. By the by: whatever happened to Fenmore?

I am not surprised but I have mixed feelings. A new family is due on the Genoa City scene. Mr. Mal Young, however, did not smartly or effectively integrate the Rosaleses. Would have liked more time to get to know and to understand Mia. her actions upon arrival seem driven by the past, hence we as viewers have no emotional connection to Mia and her point of view. Had she arrived in a meeker manner, and we saw her frustration with being an outsider grow, we could understand the ‘bad girl’ in her. Mia Rosales certainly was young and restless.… Read more »

That’s just it, Iakovos…..I find Mia neither beautiful, nor is she a siren. There is no “je ne sais quoi” element for me… starlets, such as she, come a dime a dozen. I am a villain/villainess aficionada—-As you say, she represents a shrew….failed miserably in my eyes because she does not have that extra hmph. Unless written by Shakespeare; there’s a shrew, then there’s a shrew. LOL. I have a strong antipathy for Mia……she came on too strong and did not play the good girl/bad girl too well. I saw right through the character from day one. No mystery. No… Read more »

I agree, Celia. I know Erica Kane is before your time but one of the things which resonated with AMC viewers was her fierce devotion to realizing her dreams. Her most famous line (this is even before my time, but the line has been referenced many times) is when she said to Nick,”Well, Pine Valley isn’t exactly the corner of Hollywood and Vine.” Erica wanted to elevate herself up from the Pine Valley provincial set, and yet she found herself emotionally attached to it. Who can’t relate? Maybe Mia would have had a chance had she been afforded a better… Read more »

Iakovos, you write so very well and make some excellent points. Yes, the working class absolutely needs more representation on Y&R. The Williams family provided a profile of a blue collar, working class family but they are no longer with us. As it stands, Genoa City is dominated by that one percent. Making Devon an instant billionaire without having to work for it was a huge mistake in more ways than one. Suffice to say, Devon is about as self-made as Khloe Kardashian. The problem with the Rosales family is they were introduced clumsily and too swiftly. Sometimes I could… Read more »

Nothing against Noemi, but I’m glad to see her character leave Genoa City. Which also is a back-handed-compliment to her acting since she played the Mia role as a shaker-upper beautifully. Good luck to her in her future ventures.

I’m not glad to see anyone go if they are giving good drama. I have noticed over the past few years if a character is doing villainous things then the call for her/him to get out of GC begins. It’s seems to me that the viewers of today do not understand soaps and would rather have them all nicey nicey. So many wanted her gone because she slept with her brother in law. This is the ingredient of a soap and if it’s against your morals, you need to stop watching. I don’t think Noemi was let go because she… Read more »

She was too awful, never saw any redeeming qualities in ME-UH! The last straw for me was when she viciously attacked Lola thinking she was Abby. Rey figures it out and covers for her because she is “pregnant” thereby letting a dangerously unhinged woman run free. This really irked me because: 1. Rey’s job is to serve and protect. 2. She almost killed his sister. 3. He… Read more »

Exctly!! Lily should have never served any time in prison. It was an accident–no intent. TPTB make up their own rules—
Rey is the biggest hypocrite. As Harry said, Mia is a danger….possibly unto herself and definitely unto her unborn child.
Where is Rey’s reasoning here? He knows his wife is nuts; yet, he has no qualms about ‘his’ child’s safety…..allows Mia to roam free and be a mother to an innocent baby? Whether the child is his or Arturo’s is irrelevant at this point!!

I’m torn– a character like Mia is desperately needed on the show— everyone is upstanding upper class professional and white– a Mia was a refreshing change of pace– BUT– I didn’t care for this actress in the role–can’t really pin point the issue, but for me, she was like nails on a chalkboard— so I am sorry to see an interesting girl from the wrong side of the tracks go– I think the right actress in the role would have made the whole thing work better than it did.

If they had written her right she could have been the next Jill clawing her way into society nothing wrong with the actress.

That’s exactly the thing, Bart……many here fail to see that “Mia” lacked charisma. No magnetism whatsoever!! I agree with your sentiment. I am all for bad-girls ( and new faces) who cause mayhem……It creates drama. This actress simply does not possess the quality to attract and hold interest. “Abundantly physical attributes ” do not sexy make!! It’s those little nuances–the mastering of subterfuge–the weighty silence when ‘conversing’. Mia reminds me of a bulldozer amidst a meadow of delicate flowers.

I am still wondering what Victor is up to with this man called spider. The Jabot sibling competition is heating up, Jack vs Ashley.

Ms Gonzalez could have been cast into a very different role and brought a lot of spice to the show. Why did they have to cast her as a poor insecure gal? She could have been cast as a self confident, beautiful gal similar to Joan Collins on Dynasty. I am beyond bored w/Sharon and her mental illness and dysfunction and Maria character really sucks.

Legendary ‘Jeopardy!’ Host, Alex Trebek Dies After Battle With Pancreatic Cancer

Heartbreaking news for everyone today as the beloved multi-Daytime Emmy winning host of Jeopardy!, Alex Trebek, has died at the age of 80 following a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer.

Trebek passed away Sunday morning surrounded by loved ones and died at his home, according to a spokesperson

The game show has announced that Alex hosted episodes will air through December 25th and that his last day tape day in the studio was October 29th.  Trebek became host of the show with its revival back in 1984.

 

Alex went public about his condition in March 2019, and consistently updated fans on his health via social media, on episodes of Jeopardy!, and through  frequent interviews.  While he was under contract until 2022, the iconic host continued to tape episodes as he said it helped him cope with his illness, along with the interactions with the players on the show and his enduring fans.

He was a legend of the industry that we were all lucky to watch night after night for 37 years. Working beside him for the past year and a half as he heroically continued to host Jeopardy! was an incredible honor. His belief in the importance of the show and his willingness to push himself to perform at the highest level was the most inspiring demonstration of courage I have ever seen. His constant desire to learn, his kindness, and his professionalism will be with all of us forever.”

Meanwhile, heartfelt condolences and grief are being shared all over social media today on Trebek’s passing from celebrities such as: Ellen DeGeneres, Viola Davis, Ryan Reynolds, John Legend and more, and most of all, from former contestants and beloved fans of the series.
