As Jessica Collins leaves The Young and the Restless and the role of Avery Collins, she is speaking out about her dissatisfaction storylines and disappointment over the show's contract offer.

In the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, Collins talked frankly about her exit from the top-rated daytime drama.

"I've been disappointed with the story and the direction and integrity of my character for quite some time, but I was still hopeful we might all be able to turn it around," she admitted. "Then my contract was up for renewal and I wasn’t happy with their offer. I was told there was no room for discussion, which made me realize there wouldn’t be much discussion for the character, either."

The interview includes Collins' thoughts on Avery's recent personality shift, what really happened with Y&R's plan to have Avery lie about Joe raping her, and more! The magazine is on sale today.

Collins has already landing a key role in the upcoming film So B. It.

  1. I wasn't always the biggest Avery fan but I do like JC and I agree about this latest storyline. They are trying to make a character who used to hit his wife more appealing than a rape victim. Hopefully she leaves with some integrity.
