CBS soap fans have been pining away for months to watch their favorite soap, “The Young and the Restless” created by William J. Bell, to improve. Sorry, as Highlight Hollywood predicted the creative team led by Jill Farren Phelps is its normally bad and very boring self. Last week on Friday, April 9, we reported that Josh Griffith was being shoved out of his perch at the number-one-rated soap, and Highlight Hollywood has confirmed this is indeed the case.
A Sony insider says the news will break as early as today, but definitely will be released by CBS and Sony in the next few days. In fact, Griffith has already sent an email to his fellow writers at “Y&R,” and he’s cited creative differences with his decision to leave. As we previously reported, Josh Griffith has been putting very cryptic messages on Facebook for days, (http://highlighthollywood.com/2013/08/insiders-at-the-young-and-the-restless-tell-highlight-hollywood-a-major-shake-up-is-coming-josh-griffith-may-be-out/) speaking of “finding his bliss,” looking for “spiritual growth.”
However, a CBS insider tells Highlight Hollywood, “Chock it up to Karma. Josh really did nothing but stab Maria [Bell] and the Bell family in the back, in his bid to take over the top writing spot at ‘Y&R’, and now he’s found out that Jill Farren Phelps has been pushing Sony to fire him for months. It would be sad, if it wasn’t so pathetic, and this is what he gets for backing the wrong person. Jill Farren Phelps has no loyalty except to her male (Friends of Jill’s), and she is far from through with her reign of terror. But, at least part of the problem is alleviated. Josh Griffith will find no sympathy, not only from fans, but the cast and crew.”
An Internet site stated last week that this was just a rumor by Highlight Hollywood. All we can tell our devoted readers is, stayed tuned. The fireworks are far from over, and Griffith will most likely choose a “sympathetic” publication, which we all know who it’ll be, to give his side of the story. Break out the hankies, and the CHAMPAGNE!
A “Y&R” vet tells Highlight Hollywood, “Creative differences? Have you been watching this show? There is absolutely nothing creative about it! He got played by the Master, Jill Firing Phelps!”
We all know that Jill Farren Phelps must also go, so SIGN this petition to let CBS and Sony know that you want her to follow. Kicked out, or thrown out, the choice is hers, fans frankly don’t care how she goes, but they want her gone!
Please go to the fans’ petition, which we are happy to promote, and give the killer of soap operas, Jill Farren Phelps, a heave ho!
