Shortly following the news that Genie Francis is out at Y&R, it was revealed that Rylan was being ousted from the role she's played since 2010 allegedly due to budget constraints.

    Genie Francis and Marcy Rylan weren't the only two given the boot yesterday. So was Debbi Morgan. I got that information from a very, VERY reliable source, who shall remain nameless at this point.

    I have a feeling that this is just the beginning of the cast cuts. There are many more to go!

    NOOOOO!!!! NOT Marcy Rylan!!! I LOVE Abby!!!
    She's the life, the happy, laughter, the energy of the show!!! Her personality keeps Y&R alive!!!
    IMO. BIG Mistake. And I'm ALWAYS right. HA... For real. I am right this time.
    Are you kidding me?!? Dangit.. Come on guys, you really need to rethink and change your mind on this one. Give her another s/l! But, please NOT Abby!!! We're all going to feel old and drab and dull.. She puts poor little Summer's acting to shame. Send Summer to Boarding school and Jack's son. UGH!!!
    You're telling me DAISY adds more to Y&R than ABBY????
    You guys must be experiencing sleep deprivation.

    Boo hiss. I like Marcy.

    All these cuts and I still don't see KL (Esther) being dropped from contract? She hasn't been seen in months! Too bad Debbi's character never really went anywhere.

    Abby brought some much needed humour to the show. I will definitely miss Marcy and wish her the best of luck.

    The axe is being wielded with no end in sight. Pretty shocked that MR is being let go. Disappointed that GF is leaving, such a quality actress & a character that they could have done a lot more with. DM leaving, maybe it leaves the door open for VR to come back as Drucilla is the only woman for Neil.

    The axe should weild since there is a lot of dead weight. But Marcy/Abby is NOT dead weight. Let go of Tucker, Harmony (she was just let go), Sophia, Cane, Ronan, Daisy (for the last and final time), Jeffrey, Gloria and Anita. End the internet business storyline with Adam/Chelsea/Kevin?Chloe. It makes no sense and is boring. Break up Kevin and Chloe. They are best friends but have no romantic chemistry (like Duckie and Andie). Adam has become too nice and boring. If something bad happened to Chelsea (not killed- I don't want her to leave), maybe Adam would revert back to his evil side, which he does so well.

    I hate to see her go, just started to like her character. She should stay.

    Y&R are you crazy? Marcy Ryan is a fantastic actress and the charactor of Abby Newman should be an interacial part of the Newmans story lines. There are a million ways to take the character of Abby Newman... Y&R don't be "penny wise and doller foolish" and let Marcy go, it would be a HUGE mistake because the fan's LOVE her!!! Please re-think this...

    I don't get letting this wonderful actress go and keeping dead weight like daisy, chelsea, and quite a few others around. I think they are making a huge mistake, but hey since when have they cared what the fans like?
