Many soap fans, and in particular those who watch the number one soap, The Young and the Restless will be pleased with this bit of news courtesy of Nelson Branco of Soap Opera Uncensored!   The most hated character probably in the history of the soap, Daisy, is finally being written out!  That means her portrayer, the also heavily maligned, Yvonne Zima is out!  According to Branco, “Insiders confirmed that Zima has been let go from Y&R,  and she won’t be back.  The actress filmed her last scenes this week!”

However, that is not all folks!  Branco also reports that another controversial actor has been let go at Y&R!  But he cannot reveal whom, as it would spoil a major story twist!”   However, he did give a hint!  “The actor in question will finish filming his last scenes next week.”

So soapers! Are you glad Daisy’  and Yvonne’s days in Genoa City are finally coming to end?  Who do you think could be the actor that is also  reportedly leaving the series?  Let us know! And make sure to check out the latest issue of Soap Opera Uncensored!

YES! Not entirely sure how she landed the role of Daisy but she should count her lucky stars … she is a terrible actress and would be lucky to find another role..

Oh wow! Finally! This should have been done SOOOOO many years ago, but better late than never!

This must mean Maria Bell must be losing some control since Zima and Daisy are pets of hers. Wonder if this also means the celebrity revolving door will be coming to an end also. Guess they are finally paying attention to the horrible ratings lately.

Am I glad she’s gone? Yes. Does this mean I will watch Y&R now? No.

There’s still too much that needs to be fixed with this show, starting with the character that is Sharon Newman.

Oh, totally. Sharon’s (and Ms. Case’s ) departure is long overdue

I know Patrick it was not a very nice thing to wish actors being put out of work by cancelling Y&R but if you or anybody else can tell me ONE good storyling on this show I would like to know what it is. It is nothing like the show I have watched forever and I can not beleive no one seems to care!!!

Truth, I do not watch Y&R. I’m a DAYS Watcher! and GH… so, that doesn’t give me time to watch Y&R…. however, when Eileen Davidson, Kristen on Days, left Days, and went back to Y&R, i followed. the only 2 story lines, that i liked… and i seem to be the minority on this one… is how much i liked Sharon and Adam together. it’s certainly better than Victor… and it gets kinda old.. when it’s they belong together… supercouple…. sharon and Nick. Sharon and the “bad” guy…. i thought they had so much chemistry… ooh la la HOT. the… Read more »

Do we really need to talk like this on Michael Fairman’s forum?

One of the reasons I come to this site instead of ones like Daytime Confidential is because of the clean language and the nice atmosphere.

Ha! Ha! I was afraid I was going to get flamed, despite what I said about the site. Glad I did not … so far. In any event, Kay. I LOVE reading your posts. I think I can understand how you feel about the state of Y&R these days. I used to have no problems with it myself, but even the wardrobe and hair/makeup is terrible. I hope if there is a good house cleaning coming that it is for the best, though I have my doubts because they need to start with the producing and writing departments and not… Read more »

What couldn’t he reveal if it was Ricky and be able to reveal Daisy’s exit? Nope, I don’t think it is him. Are we sure it’s a man or is he using “actor” for both?

I think the actress who plays Daisy is a very good actress. She sure can make people dislike the character so to evoke such distain is called acting. Now I don’t think the Daisy character should get her way as she has so I won’t be sorry to see her go but that is the writers fault. Ricky is a joke Kyle is as well. Can’t stand either one of the characters. Why is Eden even there? To service the men of GC. Stop bring in so many new actors and write for the ones already there would be my… Read more »

Glad this s/l is coing to an end..not fond of this character. As to who will be leaving..I can only hope..there are several I would like to see leave. But it looks like Ricky, as I think he killed his ex-girlfriend..it wasn’t suicide. And he will be going to prison.

Thank god this girl will be off my screen. She was an embarrassment to the name (and yes, my maiden name is Zima).

Seems like the writing is on the wall that Ricky will be the other one to go. Paul will figure out that he killed his former girlfriend then Ricky will kill Daisy and we’ll be done with the two worst characters currently on the show.

Hooray!

I will not speak ill of Yvonne Zima, as she was hired to do a job and did it. I will not embrace any of these Sheila legacy storylines. That character was great, her stories compelling, but they are over. Develop a new villain! Or maybe allow Tracy and others some new obstacles to overcome. Maybe Tracy is lured back into performing thus putting a strain on her family? Will there be conflicts with a suddenly grown and more independent son? Might she decide to become involved in a cause (hunger, mentoring women in crisis) that leads her to a… Read more »

Ricky kills Daisy and frames Phyllis.

Thank God they are finally getting rid of her, I do feel Yvonne Zima deserves some credit for creating a character that EVERYONE hates. But I couldnt be happier to see her go and hopefully Ricky. He never caught on and this show needs to stop focusing on the newbies. Maria Hack Bell needs to get on her knees and BEG Eileen Davidson to come back.

I am delighted Daisy is leaving, The last time she was here was quite enough. As for the other character leaving, Ricky certainly seems most likely, because he appears to have no scruples and is heading for another crisis in his life.

Although I know it would never happen, I would like for it to be Kyle… Adam’s junior clone. 🙂 It appears now that they have reformed Adam, they felt they needed a replacement in “looks” and old personality.

Christine
Guest
Christine

You see that too, B.J.?

I hate how they dress and groom the new Kyle to be just like Adam. And that first week when they were both on the same episode was torture. I think I much rather prefer Michael Muhney and Adam over Blake Hood and Kyle. I don’t see him lasting long either.

Yes, she is out the door! Never did like the character of Daisy…and the actress wasn’t that great for me to dislike the character. There are characters on other soaps that I don’t like but the actress/actor are sooo good that they made me believe the character they played/ Not in this case…sorry Yvonne Zima, you should keep taking those acting classes and practice using your voice and delivery of your lines to be more believable. Please take this as ‘Contructive Criticism” not insult.

Billy Miller is not resigning his contract, SO the male could be Billy. Sharon tells Victoria a secret about Billy’s past. Is it something Victoria can’t forgive him for this time?

I wish Ricky and Daisy would kill each other, so we are rid of both. Spoilers list other males headed for the door. So who knows which male it is that leaves now?

I hope the other character to leave is Ricky Williams …..he’s just too evil.

I really like the character of Daisy. I hate to see Yvonne Zima leave. I think she could bring alot to the show. I think she deserved a second chance and I had hoped Daniel would have eventually fallen in love with her. I d be glad to sock it to Phyllis with that one. I for one will miss Daisy!

Boo!
Daisy leaving is gonna suck.
I like her character now. Not so much during the kidnapping and whatever, but her dueling with Phyllis, aka, An Older Version of Herself…
Was nice!
Plus, she’s REALLY easy on the eyes!
Again, BOO!

I liked Daisy character now that the whole Sheila/Aunt Sara saga is over. She and Phyllis are great at duking it out. Also, what is with the whole cocky Sharron? Not to sure about that but the cat fighting is reminding me of Falcon Crest!

I was just getting to like the character of Daisy when they fired Yvonne Zima. I hope they bring her back. You were always left wondering if she was changing or if she would have some redeeming qualities. Kept you guessing!!

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
