    Y&R Fans discuss Davetta's exit and Kahlil's return!

    Wednesday, November 15 2006


    Christel Kahlil in her first Y&R appearance, this month
    As our readers know by now, Davetta Sherwood (ex-Lily Winters Romalotti) has been axed from the number one show, The Young and the Restless. Her replacement comes as a surprise, as we've seen this 'new Lily' before! Y&R replaced Davetta with the ex- Lily, Christel Kahlil! This comes as a big shock to both Davetta and the fans. Soaps.com's online mailbag is filling up with mixed reviews about the recent character change.

    Soaps.com originally posted about the changes in our news room Davetta Sherwood (Lily) Y&R is let go - Christel Kahlil is back! Feel free to read that article, and add your comments!

    Here is what just a few Soaps.com readers had to say about the change.

    Monica B: I do not like the old lily she doesn't look or act like Dru so bring back the other girl because she does!!

    Carol C: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, for bringing back the original Lily. She has an innocent quality as Lily should have. The other Lily was, I'm sure, a nice person but she had more of a seductive quality than Lily should. She came across as older, not young and innocent. Our teens are grateful to see the original Lily, too!

    Lisa B: What happened to the other Lily? Will she be returning? I heard or read that she was fired? Is that true?

    Janet S: I am thrilled to see the old Lilly back
    Chelsea L: Hi my name is Chelsea I really like the old Lily you just got rid of (Davetta). Why do you guys switch actors so often? Anyway I love the show...

    Bill S: Why did they bring back the old Lily and get rid of the new one?

    Nikki B: The switch back to the old Lily wasn't the brightest idea in my opinion. I thought she wanted to do something else with her acting? It was more dramatic with the old lily. I thought she were a great fit in for that part. I liked her better.

    While we don't know the answer to your pressing questions, we do know that Davetta also doesn't know why she was let go. On her Myspace website, she tells her fans, "To continue with the honesty and to answer all of your questions, I have yet to be informed of the "reasoning behind this firing..." nor have I been informed by anyone at CBS. My agent told me. I suppose that bothers me and I don't think it's right or fair. But my future is bigger than that! Im ok! Brighter than any of their studio lights!

    I would never dog the blessing of a show I was on. The #1 television show on Daytime for 33 years. What an opportunity! Fun times! Still, I want you all to know that Im good. Iam already taking steps forward. The thing is, I don't want to loose you. Will you come with me?"

    Soaps.com wishes the both of them much success!

    I don't want to OLD Lilly back. The new Lilly (Davetta) looks like and acts like she is apart of the Winner's Family. When the new Lilly comes on I turn the channel until that part is over. She is so boring and not right for that part at all. That was a very bad decision to let her go like that and with a reason. I can not beleive CBS made that stupid move! That was very cruel. She was so into her part...she played that part so well. She could have passed for Dru's daughter for real. Like mother like daughter...and it's not like that any more. Everyone I speak to about this wants Davetta back. I will continue to change the channel everytime I see her on the show! I was glad when they had replaced the old Lilly. She don't even look right with Daniel. She does not belong....get rid of the OLD and Bring back the NEW!

    The old lily (Davetta Sherwood) was a much better actress, then the return Lily (Christel Kahlil). Davetta Sherwood was the perfect-fit in the Winter's Family. The old lily (Christel Kahlil)is just that old and tired.

    I have watched Y&R since I was a little girl and I love this show. While I was deployed I had my family record and send the episodes to me a week at a time to watch in Iraq. Now that I'm home & I can watch the show everyday myself I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED that Davetta has been replaced, her character acts more like Dru...and Davetta, unlike Christel, looks like an African American child born of two African American parents.

    Davetta (Lily) looks better with Daniel and I get frustrated watching Christel play this role, she is clearly out of her element.

    Support the Troops...bring Davetta back!

    Please get Davetta back, she was excellent. Apologize, communicate do whatever you have to do. Chrsitel brings no excitement to the role. She is flat, boring.

    Keep the showing lively and moving forward put Davetta back as Lily!
