“The Young and the Restless” has seen a lot of actors go as of late, and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Abbott) may be the next to depart the canvas!

According to a tweet sent out by TV Guide’s Michael Logan, there are rumors circulating that the New York native has chosen not to renew her contract and therefore will soon be leaving the show. At press time, neither “Y&R” nor the actress had commented or confirmed the news.

What would you think if Hendrickson decided to end her six year stint in Genoa City? Would you be sad, or would you take it in stride? Let us know in the comment section below!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

    Personally, I never much liked Hendrickson’s portrayal of Chloe, whom she played as nothing short of a b!tch. I think all of the soaps could use a good pruning when it comes to their casts…if a character can go a week or more without being on the canvas, they aren’t that important in my opinion.

    Although it seems that if Hendrickson does leave, it is of her own free will, I wonder how long it will take for her name to be added to the likes of Michael Muhney, Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford in disgruntled fans long list of complaints against Y&R (even though Miller and Stafford, like Hendrickson, left at the end of their contract periods).

    • TV&MovieBuff

      I totally agree with you. I do love the actress but didn’t like the character or her interpretation.

    • loreen p

      maybe you didnt get the whole story on Billy Miller he didnt leave on his own, he ASKED to be given the time to do other gigs like alot of the OTHER characters do and they would not agree…..so he left. And were not disgruntled fans we CHOOSE not to watch the show anymore as it has gone to hell in a handbasket since MM, MS, BM and Mrs C are no longer on there. Get the facts!

      • JayTN

        I guess it’s a fact that Y&R has gone to “hell in a handbasket” simply because you say it has. 5 million people who continue to watch would disagree with you.

        Billy Miller left at the end of his contract period, so did Michelle Stafford and if Hendrickson leaves, so will she. Meaning, they were not fired…a contract was simply not renewed. Also, Miller had continually asked for time off and every time his contract came up for renewal, he threatened to leave. Perhaps the powers that be got fed up with his constant demands for more and more time off and his threats to walk and decided to tell him to walk.

        Maybe you should get the facts, instead of trying to push an agenda.

        • loreen p

          The ‘powers that be’ will be the end of Y&R……………..buh bye!

          • JayTN

            Since you claim not to watch the show anymore, why do you concern yourself with it? Just like all of these other delusional and sad, just sad people, you still watch it everyday and DVR it if you ever miss it and run home and immediately watch it with a big ol’ bowl of popcorn.

            Y&R will still be around after Michael Muhney has groped and harassed two or three other actresses and his wife has left him and filed for divorce and after Billy Miller becomes even more irrelevant than he already is. That’s a fact…………buh bye!

          • Herekittiez

            Even though 3 of 4 of my favourite actor’s and actresses have left, I still watch cause I gotta keep tabs on my girl!!!..;)

          • Billy

            Wow, can you get anymore ridiculous than that statement? Muhney and Miller are two very talented actors. To condemn them both shows your own ignorance and blind arrogance to this silly show. Good grief.

          • JayTN

            You’ve got the market cornered on ignorance and arrogance. Just because you proclaim Muhney and Miller as “talented actors” it must be so. No one is allowed to have their own opinion…unless you agree with it or approve of it. Good grief.

        • Billy

          Ridiculous comment by a JFP psychopath. Y&R is slow and boring, just the way old people like “their shows”.

          • JayTN

            Ridiculous comment by a Muhney-ite. Way to stand behind a serial sexual harasser.

      • maria

        Loreen, I totally agree with you. Funny how JFP allowed her little boy toy Steve Burton to a contract that let HIM do other things, but not a super star like Billy Miller. I don’t care if he replaced that horror of an actor who was the original Billy Abbott. He needed to be replaced then and does need to again. And anyone who thinks Billy Miller will be forgotten is purely disillusioned….don’t waste you time responding to them……

        • Herekittiez

          Isn’t Steve Burton married? If so why define him as JFP’S boytoy. That would be a definite insult.

          • Billy

            Burton is JFP’s pet bulldog. She drags him around on a leash wherever she goes. Horrible actor that has taken over Y&R, just like she did with him on GH. So predictable.

      • Herekittiez

        It’s still the same, imo. Billy Miller has always been THREATENING to leave Y & R. That tells me he’s too snide and stuck-up to stick one roll, in any given peroid of time.

        • Billy

          Actors like change. It makes them BETTER at their craft. He openly said that. That’s not snide or stuck up to improve yourself and your skills. Jeez, figure it out and open your mind.

  • RedRiver38

    Hendrickson’s portrayal of Chloe Fisher has been fine, but the character isn’t very likeable or appealing. The actress has been shuffled in and out of silly storylines, but the death of Delia has been her triumph. What’s left? Hanging around with Melissa Claire Egan and Greg Rikaart? She knows that’s a dead end. It’s time to move on. I do hope Chloe takes Kevin with her. Neither would be missed.

    • vince

      Totally agree. Greg Rikaart needs to hit the road too. Can’t stand the Chipmunk.

      • Herekittiez

        There is a big difference between Greg Rikaart and The Chipmunk. The Chipmunk story was actually good. Implementing real-life abuse situations into the storylines on the show. JFP needs to learn how to write! Go attack her and not the actors and actresses that they still have left!

        • Billy

          Rikkart is a punk. He’s rude and arrogant. I met him at a Y&R event and was appalled by his behavior. As far as JFP goes, her track record speaks for itself.

          • Herekittiez

            I agree with you on JFP part, anyone who defends her doesn’t know Y & R past storylines or the history of EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER. So stop defending her, PLEASE. I never met Rikkart.

        • JayTN

          Jill Farren Phelps doesn’t need to “learn how to write” because she does not write Y&R. Phelps is the executive producer. Jean Passanante, Shelly Altman and Tracy Thomson are the head writers.

      • Billy

        Agreed. Rikaart is horrible and so’s his character. Worthless.

  • Molly

    She’s really quite a horrendous actress. Very unlikable, as well. Should probably move along.

    • Herekittiez

      I think you should probably move along with your horrendous comment. Her character is annoying, but that’s a tad bit extreme, imo. I think you should probably not comment on here anymore..;)

  • Beckie

    So long Chloe…..no big loss. Billy Miller, on the other hand, was a big, big mistake. The “child” chosen to replace him is so unbelievable as the character, Billy, it is sadly laughable. Bring him back…….quickly!!

    • Bexx

      You do realize that Billy Miller made the decision to leave?

      • JayTN

        …not to mention that the “child chosen to replace” Billy Miller is the person whom Miller replaced as Billy Abbott. Some people will still be boycotting Y&R and demanding the return of Miller, Muhney and whomever else is let go, or leaves, five years from now. And most people will still be shaking their heads at them, just like they are today.

        • Herekittiez

          CHILD?! Learn to do Math. Billy Miller and David Tom are only 1 1/2 years apart. Gotta love the math comments, from stupid people!!

          • JayTN

            Actually, I was referencing an earlier comment that referred to David Tom as a “child”, hence the reason why I put quotation marks around it in my reply.

          • Bexx

            Reading is fundamental, ya lunatic.

          • Billy

            Funny thing is, Tom acts like he’s 15 years younger. He’s horrible.

          • Desiree Lee

            I know. She is ruining Billys part. Ugh she needs to be fired

        • Bexx

          I just wish people would stop using Miller and Stafford to give their insanity some type of credibility. They are desperate for Y&R to be cancelled, yet they are still actively campaigning for their fallen hero to return. Ridiculous.

          • Diana D.

            you are RIDICULOUS…they were the best acting people on Y/R. Now it sunked like a Titanic.

      • jal

        Because JFP would not him do other projects on his time off, like there always were before. JFP said that she couldn’t work with him.

        • Bexx

          Did they offer you a seat during negotiations? For all we know Miller, like Muhney, too thought he was irreplaceable. Billy Miller was a lead, and character was given front burner stories. It’s either he wanted to be a soap actor on Y&R, or he didn’t. What exactly is he doing now? Zilch!

      • Billy

        Billy Miller wanted the same contract he had so he could do outside projects. He’s had it for years. JFP was no fan of Miller’s. She was quoted as saying that she didn’t “get” his popularity. She wanted him gone so she refused to give him the outs clause and then quickly recast the role so it blocked his staying on. JFP wanted him off the show.

  • vince

    Good luck EH. Chloe was a pain. Take Kevin with you.

  • jake

    She is like fingernails on a chalkboard, cannot believe her acting at all. And yes I agree with vince..Take Kevin with you!!

    • Billy

      Agreed. The Chipmunk needs to go ASAP.

  • Suzie

    It’s been long overdue!! Good bye Chloe !!!!

  • Herekittiez

    Chloe has been fine, imo. The very first writer’s NOT JFP, designed her character to be a bitch, which is why I like her MOST OF THE TIME. The actress herself, is doing fine! So many people whine get rid of so and so. Well, that’s pretty much everyone and might as well be the death of the show. Which is what I am hoping for, because JFP is the ONLY one who sucks!!!

  • Mary1054

    I actually stopped watching the show after the loss of MM and BM. When I saw this news about Elizabeth, it makes me wonder if JFP is railroading her character as well, therefore the professional actors are taking a stance against her and leaving the show and opting not to renew their contracts. Maybe they don’t like what they see either. It is apparent that JFP has her own agenda and does not care about any of the regular cast and really does not care anything about the Y&R fans!

    • Billy

      The show is in the tank now. Awful stories and David Tom’s return as Billy Abbott is a major bust. He’s worse than I expected. He’s shown no growth as an actor and he plays the role as an aging teenager. If they re-cast Adam with similar talent, then put a fork in Y&R. Ms Hendrickson is wise to leave this sinking ship.

  • Diana D.

    it is so booooooring now. OMG what a stupid woman (whatever her name is – jill phelbs…) She ruins award winning soap opera. It was a fabulous distraction from a hectic life. But without Billy, Adam/Michael and now even Elizabeth/Chloe is going to leave they might as well wrap it up. Congrats JFP you succeded…how do you sleep with a reputation like this? I could not even look at myself in the mirror.
    DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF OR WHERE BILLY MILLER IS ACTING NOW???
    He is really fab. actor. Unless he & others are back I’m and believe millions of people are not even wasting my time. I want to womit when I see new Billy…….yak!!!!!!!!!

  • cyra

    Stopped watching when Phylis Billy and Michael were pushed out the door Now Chloe I see I made the right decision Thats seems to be the only way to get toJill

  • sad

    This just proves that the Y & R director is driving the show into the ground. After 23 years of watching I say goodbye. I chose to watch 23 years ago and today I am no longer interested. It would take many things to change i.e. MM back I just don’t see that happening.. I

  • Desiree Lee

    Jill needs to be fired. She is ruining the show and the Bells show. Jill needs to be fired because she wants the show cancelled which it will be if she isn’t fired.
