    If this is true,this viewer is gone. Genie was why I started watching Y&R. She's one of the few great actress's and characters on the show. GenV is a very interesting and complex character who had the potential for many exciting storylines. Her past and relationship with Tucker was one of them that would of been exciting if given the chance. The show is stupid to let such a great actress go and I know many others who watched for Genie only and will be going with me. Very dissapointed in this decision and hoping they change their minds asap!

    she's a GH leftover who ended up in a terrible story line at Y&R taking away from the seasoned cast of regulars like Nikki and Katherine...hopefully Tucker is next!

    She is a wonderful actress whoo was brought on the show to get higher ratings. She was given a lousy storyline and her character has been all over the map. Unfortunately she was a product of a bad story concept and poor execution. I am glad to see her go so other major characters can have more screen time and we get back to the core characters. I hope Tucker, Harmony,Sarge and Sophia go next. All of them good actors with bad storylines. Bring in some more interesting black characters and storylines.

    She's a great actress given a bad story line. Too bad. Such a waste.

    I hate that. I am a Genie Francis fan. Have been since she debuted on General Hospital at the age of 16. Hopefully she can go back there and rejoin Luke and Anna.
