Ever since Chuck Pratt Jr. took over as head writer of The Young and the Restless, fans had wondered what the fate of his predecessors, Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante would be. Altman has moved over to a different capacity with Pratt’s writing team, but Passanante is no longer with the number one soap opera, something she confirmed on Twitter.
Passanante related to one of her Twitter followers: “I’m no longer with Y&R so I’m glad you’re still with me!” Previously, Jean has written for As the World Turns, One Life to Live, General Hospital and All My Children, and has been known for writing character-driven story.
Some Y&R fans felt some of the stories were lackluster during Altman and Passanante’s storytelling on the iconic Y&R. However, now many fans have strong opinions on Chuck Pratt Jr.’s storytelling as well.
So, what do you think about the news that Jean is no longer with the writing regime at Y&R? Comment below!
