Just read in latest edition CBS/soaps/in/depth....the following...
"are two Y & R PERFORMERS on the way out? While one's alter ego could be killed off if the show had its way, the network, however, feels that the legacy character should remain on the canvas. Alas, the other character's fate is sealed, and the fan favorite will be departing any day now. While the exiting player has been referred to as a "real bitc*" by some cast maters, others speak more fondly of the star, saying that the beloved character will be missed"
ok.... from that I can gather they are talking about Melody as in the first one, the "legacy" character...but I am left to wonder which other "beloved" character ( and a fan favorite?) is about to leave the show?
