Debbi Morgan Leaving THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS

A massive housecleaning is happening this week at THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS as yet another actress has been fired from the soap. Debbi Morgan, who plays Devon's mother Harmony, has been axed.

"To all my twitter fans," Morgan posted on Twitter. "Wanted to B the first to tell you the new regime has let me go from Y&R. Will tape my last show Oct. 5th & I move on!"

Morgan was the third actress to be let go this week, joining Genie Francis (Genevieve) and Marcy Rylan (Abby).

Meanwhile, THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR alum James Avery will be guest starring on Y&R beginning October 12. EW.com reports he will oversee a "very important trial." Actress Cooper Harris tweeted about booking a role in the soap as well. No word yet on who she will be playing. Jess Walton is also expected to return to the soap for an arc this fall.

What do you think of Jill Farren Phelps first moves as executive producer of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS?

  1. I'm not surprised. This is what she did to General Hospital during her tenure there. I'm afraid to think how many other people at Y&R are going to be out of a job once JFP's dust has settled.

    I guess CBS decided to tell the fans to f*** off because that's what's going to happen with JFP behind the scenes at Y&R.

  6. She has made the right choices keeping to high profile actress that have made no impact to the legacy of Y&R will save money and help keep the older cast.

  7. Bring back Jill Abbott; she's got enough moxie for all three ladies who are departing G.C.

  8. JFP has nixed a deal with Jess Walton. No more Jill Abbott. If I was a woman over 40 on that show, I would be very, very worried.

  9. I've watched Y&R since 14 (i'm now 49) and I have to say the past couple years I have been disappointed in it. Change is hard but good so I say Good luck to JFP

  13. IM NOT THAT SURPISED, MYSELF. THAT JILL PHELPS is doing the same thing, here what she did to GENERAL HOSPITAL. Of taking away the core, families possibly the newmons. And the abotts. Just like she did to the SPENCERS, AND THE QUATERMAINES ON GH. And posbable of doing something with young child. And so THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Will also try to survive just like GH is doing with new producers, and writers.

  15. Getting rid of abby is a big mistake. She adds humour and I love how she goes toe to toe with so many of the other actors.

  17. Y&R is the only soap I watch. Debbie Morgan is one of the best actresses on t.v. I dont think she was given a fair chance with the character she was given. I am afraid you keep firing actors that are loved by their fans and the show will go down in ratings
