Young and the Restless Rumor Alert: Is Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps OUT?

The social media rumor mill is abuzz with the speculation that a famed “Young and the Restless” Executive Producer is on her way out the door.


A blind item on Daytime Confidential about a showrunner on his or her way out got people speculating that the exec in question is Jill Farren Phelps. Big wigs have been making a case against her due to declining ratings and viewer discontent.

If the rumors are true, it seems there will be no love lost between Phelps and fans. In fact, viewers were so overjoyed Thursday night when the speculation hit Twitter that the hashtag #JFPisFiredParty started trending.

Phelps came to Y&R in 2012. Over the last four years, the 11-time Emmy winner has been involved in multiple actor departures, replaced the previous writing team, and made the controversial decision to bring in former show-running partner Charles Pratt Jr.

Fans have blamed the Phelps for the firing of fan favorite Michael Muhney (ex-Adam) and the shocking departures of much-loved actors like Billy Miller (ex-Billy) and Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis). Fans were also up in arms when actress Sage (Kelly Sullivan) was recently killed.

What would a Phelps’ exit mean for the future of the show? Earlier this year, CBS execs brought legendary British Producer Mal Young to the team. Young is known for his work on “EastEnders” and “Dr. Who” and is famous for presenting the first lesbian kiss on a daytime drama.

I always feel bad for wishing anyone to lose their job, but JFP deserves to be fired for what she has done to Y&R. Its no secret how much I dislike her so I do hope this is true. Not sure how much will change though if Pratt is allowed to continue as HW. Either way I guess one less hack is better than no change at all.

There was plenty of speculation that it could be Frank Valentini, as well, and the silhouette on the blind item post looked like a male. The funny thing was that the clues to who it is seemed like they could apply to any of the EPs running the hour long soaps.

I wonder when the ax is going to fall.....

Nope you haven't missed much. Victor is still a delusional jerk behind bars. Hillary is still a social climbing witch. Summer is still a dumb sniveling brat. Sharon is still a whackadoodle who needs smacked. Phyllis and Billy are messing around. Adam got arrested again. Victoria still needs someone to buy her a hairbrush.....yep same old same old in Genoa City.

P.S. Hope you are on high ground down there and staying safe with all the flooding.

Here's a story about SONY that seems to indicate that JFP is the EP that is on the chopping block...
http://highlighthollywood.com/2016/06/s ... by-lynton/


The most important part of the article...
wrote:Lynton’s staffers frown on calling Mosko a genius of the TV division, something he’s touted on his own behalf to anyone who would listen over the past year. “Mosko put his crony Steve Kent in control of Daytime and it’s been downhill since. Michael [Lynton] is furious at the latest numbers coming out of ‘Y&R’ and ‘Days.’ It’s obvious Steve Kent had a grudge and he used his power to push the Bells out of ‘Y&R,’ only to totally screw it up with Jill Farren Phelps. But now that Mosko is gone, Kent won’t be sleeping at night like a baby anymore. He had no fear of his job as long as Mosko was in charge, but all of that changes now. There need to be serious changes with the entire TV division, but the Daytime division is flat,” an insider close to Lynton tells us.

When pressed that Lynton can’t just put all of this on Mosko, and that he also knew Kent was close to Jill Farren Phelps, who is known in Daytime TV as the “soap killer,” the staffer obviously defended Lynton, placing all the blame on Mosko and Kent for the colossal messes both “The Young and the Restless” and “Days of Our Lives” have become. When pressed if Lynton is going to let Kent go and therefore remove Jill Farren Phelps’s protector, we were told, “the heads are not finished rolling out the studio gates just yet. Something has to change. The days of propaganda propping up these incompetent people around here and their cronies has come to an end.”

Wow, thanks Bilki. I always wondered why the Bells were pushed out of their own family creation. The article is right on about the decline of Y&R, no matter how the numbers look. Good to know that JFP's reputation follows her, which makes no sense why they would turn around and give her the reins of the #1 soap, does it??
