We did not see this one happening! The talented Marcy Rylan (Abby Newman) also found out that she has been let-go from the number one soap, The Young and the Restless today! Earlier, we reported that Genie Francis (Genevieve) was pink-slipped with the show citing budget cuts as the reason, and according to Soap Opera Digest the same holds true for Rylan. She was told it was a budgetary issue which precipitated her dismissal.
One source told SOD, “No one ever imagined that Em’s [as she is known by the cast] job would be in danger. After all, her character is a Newman and an Abbott. This just proves that there are going to be a lot of surprises with these budget cuts.”
Rylan took to her Twitter account this evening confirming the news of her departure tweeting, “I had a blast at Y&R and I’m taking all those awesome memories with me! I am so excited to see what will come next! Love you all! XOXOXO
So what do you think of Rylan being shown the front door? Good move or a really dumb one? And, who do you think will be next to go in Genoa City? Let us know!
