‘The Young And The Restless’ Fans Start Petition To Request Sony And CBS Remove Jill Farren Phelps As Executive Producer Of The Show, Highlight Hollywood News
Over the weekend, the fans have spoken, they have officially had enough of perennial soap runner failure, Jill Farren Phelps, who has become the face of daytime past. And pardon the pun, but what a face it is.
Highlight Hollywood reader, Dave, a devoted “Y&R” viewer politely asked if we’d post the petition, which says in part: “We the fans of Young and the Restless request the CBS, Sony Pictures and the Bell family remove Jill Farren Phelps as Executive Producer of the Young and the Restless. We do not approve or accept of the job she is doing with our beloved soap. With blood on her hands from other canceled soaps. we will not sit back while Y&R suffers the same fate. We request that Jill Farren Phelps be replaced.
Jill has her allies at Sony and CBS. Mainly because they have a vested interest in backing their own failures and mistakes. They unceremoniously fired people, showed no class and dignity or respect for the late William J. Bell’s legacy. But, the fans are the ones that truly have the power. Bill Bell taught me that. So, Highlight Hollywood stands by the “Y&R” fans, who say they have had enough.
Insiders told Highlight Hollywood on Friday, that head writer Josh Griffith may be on his way out, after his vacation next week. ( 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/ ) Sony was not pleased that the news leaked out, but that’s just too bad. The fans want to see this regime replaced with adequate and talented people. Something that is lacking gravely today.
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!
