Soaps.com has learned that
The Young and the Restless star Victoria Rowell (Dru) is leaving the show. Although we don’t know the reasoning for the sudden departure, a source close to the actress has confirmed that Victoria has asked to be released from her contract in April.

CBS granted her request.

Since joining the cast in 1990, Victoria has left the show twice before. Let’s hope that she’ll bring Dru back to Genoa City somewhere down the road in the future. In the meantime, fans can catch her new movie Home of the Brave and look forward to her upcoming memoir
The Women Who Raised Me set to be released on May 1, 2007!

Soaps.com wants to thank Victoria Rowell for bringing such a strong presence to the The Young and the Restless! She will definitely be missed! To learn more about Victoria and her career, please visit Victoria Rowell!
