Say it isn't so! Emily O'Brien OUT at Y&R!

© JPI Studios

And the soaps keeps shrinking its cast size! Not necessarily a bad idea in most cases, but choose wisely folks. This time Soap Opera Digest has learned that Daytime Emmy nominated Emily O’ Brien who has played crazy Jana Hawkes Fisher with all the freakish storyline twists and turns she has to endure had been let-go by the The Young and the Restless.

Could it be they just wrote Emily’s character into a corner, or is there something ahead to faciliate some greater story? Stay tuned.  No final airdate has been announced for Emily, but we wish her the very best in all her future endeavors as she is one talent that should go very far, and perhaps that Y&R should not have let slip away.

Michael,

I agree with you Emily O’Brien is talented actress. Emily O’rien will be missed. Jana was written into a corner the minute TPTB allowed her to be taken hostage and presumebly loose her memory. For once Y&R should allow Cane to stay dead, Ghost Cane and Lilly storyline is stupid. Y&R is famous for bringing people back from the dead. Katherine, Adam and now Cane. If this and rich brats (Newman offspring) is all Y&R has to offer, I’m changing the channel.

Y&R continues to add mistakes to the long list of mistakes they’ve made. Jana has been written horribly over the last year, but I still had small hope she come back to normal and reunite with Kevin. Chloe and Kevin just don’t seem right together, I don’t know what it is. It’s bad enough they turn my Sharon into a COMPLETE lunatic, but now they’re cutting cast members like DG and EO’B who have great potential. Weak.

Chloe and Kevin have no chemistry and I do think they wrote Jana into a corner. They seem to be having problems pairing people up, Diane with Victor is just as lame.

Jana was one of my favorites until they destroyed the chatracter.

I’m so sorry to hear about this. Emily O’Brien is fantastic as Jana and always shines in her scenes, no matter how ludicrous! 🙂 I wish her well and hope to see her on the small screen again. That being said, I just want to say how much I thoroughly enjoy Young and the Restless. The writers have been getting so much flack lately (alright, perpetually!) but I find the #1 soap on television to be endlessly entertaining!! Sure, there are a few clunker storylines (what show on television doesn’t have one?) but I think there’s more good than bad.… Read more »

Sorry to see Jana, Emily leave the show. I thought she just signed a new contract. They wrote her horribly, but I still had hopes for Jana. Chloe and Kevin are awful as a couple. Cane’s ghost, Adam forced upon us, lunatic Sharon, Victor/Diane/Tucker/Nick, Hearher & Chance…All bad decisions!

I love Jana! I just hope that by cutting her from the show, they have also cut the Ryder character as well. That was a huge mistake briging him back! Now how will this all play out? I want it to be discovered that he and his waco sister are really not related to Kevin at all.

I think they should wind up the Jana story as soon as possible .It’s enough already. Emily has done a great job of acting, but let’s get on with the story. Yes, we are all hanging on to see what happens with Daniel and Billy and Victoria. It doesn’t look too good for any of them. And wait until Phyliss finds out about the baby. Let’s get on with it …..

Chrishell Stause Has Taken Steps Towards Motherhood

Former soap opera star, Chrishell Stause, who is current appearing on the reality series Selling Sunset and the the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, shared some personal news with PEOPLE that she hopes to start a family

In the exclusive, Stause shares, “I have taken the steps to freeze my eggs.”  Adding,  “I definitely had a different idea for where I would be at this age and stage in my life.  There’s a family aspect that I’m missing that I hope is still a possibility for me.”

Of course, Stause is still pretty fresh off her shocking marriage break-up in November of 2019 with This is Us star, Justin Hartley.  But because of that she wants to take the pressure off of herself and a potential life partner in terms of a time-frame to bring kids into the world.

Meanwhile, Stause continues to prepare each week for ballroom dance competition on Dancing with the Stars with pro partner, Gleb Savchenko

She admitted that she was actually getting ready to freeze her eggs when she joined the cast for season 29 of DWTS.  “I was in the middle of the process when DWTS approached me. So for the first weeks of rehearsal, I was giving myself daily hormone shots while learning the tango, and the procedure was done a few days before the premiere of the show.”

So, what do you think about Chrishell’s plans to become a mom when she is ready?  Are you rooting her on Dancing with the Stars? Comment below.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.
