    Convince Billy to stay-if not leave the door open for his return--not everyone has to die when they leave the show of course none of us know what the writers have planned for his s/l in the future and maybe that is why he is leaving--

    If they can't convince him to stay they must recast. Billy is next generation Abbott...and Jill of course!

    NOOOOOOOOOO! They better do whatEVER they have to do to make him stay! He's hot and he's one of the best one-liner zingers on the show!!!

    this is horrible news. I actually like him with Victoria and they have a pretty good relationship. that is awful news.

    Billy is my favorite Man on the show. He is gorgeous and I love his personality. I agree convince Billy Miller to stay, pay him more money and let some of the unneccessary charaters go such as:Tucker, Sophia, Malcolm, Jana, Noah.
    I can't believe Y&R would let such adorable talent slip through their hands.

    No, no, no. I agree that there are a number of other actors and actresses that should be gone before Billy. Maybe if you let a few of them go, Malcolm at the top of the list, they can up Billy's salary enough to make him want to stay. Can't stand the arrogance of Noah, you can put him on the "go" list. Too many newcomers, maybe the name of the show should be changed to Villains and Deceit.

    They really should convince him to stay. If they can't why not bring back David Tom. He originated the role of Billy.

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!! I love Billy.... He is sooooo cute!!! He and Victoria are great together. Billy is HOT!!!!! Please talk him into staying. Don't kill him off.

    Let me put all of this talk of Billy Miller leaving to a screeching halt. The latest word is that Billy Miller is in contract negotiations to remain with the show past his current contract expiring in June. So, not all hope is lost. Let's all keep our fingers and toes crossed that he signs a new contract and is given "outs" to do outside projects.
