    Once again the "golden writers" of Y&R strike again by letting go of a great talent. Best of luck Emily, you're awesome, very talented and too good for this show. Apparently, mediocrity is the order of the on y&r now.

    Nuheather must have an iron clad contract. Her acting has not improved, is obviously pregnant and still cannot act. Why do you cram her down our throats?

    I dont like it at all. What a talent Emily is, why keep some of the others and let her go? Isnt she in the middle of a frontburner story line? I have liked Jana from the beginning and always thought she would make such a good love interest for Daniel but they didnt want to put them together for some reason. They destroyed her character to prop Chloe. How many characters will this one character damage?

    Well that's too bad. Ever since she took off with Ryder her character hasn't really been a fan favourite though. I like Jana but I liked her best with Kevin......hopefully they leave a window open for her return.

    It is sad because Emily is a fantastic actress but the Y&R have gone off the deep end on their choices on what characters they choose to showcase. They chose to completely destroy Jana in this past year because of wanting so badly to make Kevin and Chloe work as a romance ( which it doesn't). So while again I am sad, I'm not surprised. Being as talented as she is, Emily deserves better and I hope she finds great success.

    Now if Y&R could only get the memo on Heather and hightail her off the show too.

    I can honestly say I am shocked that Emily is being let go. I haven't like her s/l lately but I can say that about many s/l too. I've never thought even once that they should get rid of her. ER is the one who should be packin her bags. I wouldn't mind a Colin exit either.

    WTF!?! Why get rid of someone who CAN act and keep someone who thinks a heaving bosom and batting her eyelashes is acting? I don't get it. Can that stupid ditz Heather and keep Jana you idiots! I'm getting so GD fed up with Heather that if they don't get rid of her pretty soon I'm going to start watching another show instead. I f*ing HATE Heather!

    From your lips to God's ear. No one seems to like Heather, so why don't the writers pay attention to the fans? Do we not matter? It isn't as if the character is someone we just love to hate...it's that the actress cannot act! Dump her now. Please!

    Again, a fantastic actress let go because of bad writing. They write her character into a corner (she still acts well), and they still keep Heather! Why do they keep Heather? The character, daughter of Paul is great, but you give Paul, who is a fantastic actor, no storyline, and you give the woman who cannot act, a prime storyline. Please, please listen to your fans. It really makes you wonder about how they make decisions, because it certainly is not on quality and is certainly not on advanced planning.

    Y&R was a show I would never miss, now if I watch it 3 times a week that's a lot. They should have NEVER kept Victor, I'm so sick of him, they should have written him off when he had his heart transplant. As for Jenna, I liked her with Kevin, however, when they took her memory away, come one come up with something not done 3 million times. And Heather, WTF where they thinking when they replaced the last person playing the character, this one sucks big time. She has about as much talent as a dust mop, replace her or write her off, she is terrible, and not worthy of the storyline she has. But Y&R needs to wake up and pull their heads out of the ASS before they lose all their viewers.
