Lindsay Bushman Out At THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS; HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS' Hunter Haley King Is The New Summer

Lindsay Bushman is the latest actress set to leave THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. She has played an aged Summer Newman for the past few months.

The actress seemed happy with the direction of Y&R and her story on Sunday when she tweeted the following: "Keep an eye out for some maniacal storylines coming up :) with mi amigos @maxehrich @rgala #YR"

But just days later she had been replaced in the role tweeting: "Ahhh! #YR is being invaded by #HollywoodHeights and has replaced yet another actress on YR. Guess who?! Me. Haha well onward and upward ^"

Hunter Haley King, who played Adriana on HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS will be the new Summer.

New Y&R executive producer Jill Farren Phelps and head writer Josh Griffith took over the show this summer after working with Sony on HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS. Robert Adamson was the first actor they brought over (to play the new Noah).

In addition to Genie Francis, Debbi Morgan and Marcy Rylan leaving, actress Cooper Harris has tweeted about joining the soap but no word yet on who she will be playing.

Stay tuned for more details.

  1. JFP strikes! Hoping GH takes the #1 spot over Y and R for the first time since Duke left.

  2. Sorry but GH won't take over Y&R as number 1...millions more would have to watch...which ain't going to happen.

  3. Interesting. I wonder who from HH will be taking over as Summer.

  4. My guess for the replacement from HH would be Haley King (Adriana).

  5. GH may not take over Y&R as number 1 (t will be B&B) but it will no doubt soon have higher ratings than Y&R and they won't need millions of more viewers to accomplish it. Wth JFP in charge, Y&R's ratings are going to sink.

    By the time she's done, the show will likely be at risk of being cancelled.

  6. The new Summer must be Haley King, because Mac Ehrich, who plays Fen on Y&R, tweeted last night:

    Hey @HunterHaleyKing ! Great working with you yesterday. Looking forward to a long journey! :)
