OK Jillian, take a deep breath before writing... CBS Soaps In Depth has confirmed news first broken by a fan site. The Young and the Restless has decided not to renew Stacy Haiduk's contract. Soaps In Depth spoke with executive producer and head writer Maria Arena Bell, who said:
Stacy Haiduk is a fantastic actress and we are thrilled with her performances as Patty Williams and Dr. Emily Peterson.
According to Bell, Haiduk being off contract doesn't mean it will be the last viewers have seen of her.
Though she is going off contract we hope that Stacy will reprise the role in the future.
If not getting a Daytime Emmy nomination wasn't a big enough snub, Y&R's lame invite to come on back sure was. Don't do it, Stacy. Tell em' to kick rocks with some flip-flops! READ MORE
