Y&R fans are ecstatic after getting the news they’ve waited three long, hard years for; Jill Farren Phelps, has finally fired from daytime’s number one soap. It comes not a moment too soon as this is the woman with perhaps the most notorious reputation in daytime, who is responsible for the destruction and cancellation of many soaps including Guiding Light and, most recently, All my Children. General hospital viewers will also remember her as the woman who almost killed their beloved soap after One Life to live and All My Children was unceremoniously dead in 2011.
Highlight Hollywood broke the news late Tuesday night, June 7th 2016. You can read all the details here.
Note: Rumours are flying like the wind, though they are as yet ONLY RUMOURS; that Chuck Pratt, another of daytime’s most notorious soap killers is also out as the show’s head writer and co-executive producer, or well on his way. Stay tuned for more news as it develops.
