Handsome And Talented Billy Miller Has Fans On His Side After Being Tossed Aside By ‘The Young And The Restless’ Phelps, Highlight Hollywood News
When Jill Farren Phelps was canned by ABC/Disney, fans of the soap genre feared she’d eventually land some place, and they knew that their favorites would not stand a chance, unless they also were her favorites. Billy Miller has won two Emmy Awards since being hired by the previous “Y&R” regime. Jill Farren Phelps made a point of giving Steve Burton a cushy contract so he’d dispense with his plans to move to Nashville, is it? And to stick around Hollywood, while she also made sure writers embedded Steve’s character Dylan into the Genoa City fabric and a core family on the series. Steve is a great actor, a wonderful person, but that can’t be said for Jill Farren Phelps, not at all. And recently fans were heartbroken to hear that two-time Emmy Award-winner Billy Miller, who frankly was the brightest light on the show, is now gone.
Who is next? You will be shocked. But in the next few months, there’s yet another major actor Phelps plans to ease out, and to replace. Cutting salaries is her specialty, unless they are Friends of Jill’s. But, fans are outraged about Miller’s exit from the show. Miller fan C.C. is furious. “I can’t tell you how upset we are that Billy was treated this way, and is no longer going to be on the show.” Other fans were equally as shocked and still reeling from the loss. They have nothing against David Tom, but feel that Billy Miller gave the role something that no one else has brought to the table.
Amanda in WeHo tells Highlight Hollywood, “I don’t know what it’ll take to get Jill Farren Phelps out of ‘Y&R’ before she destroys the show the way she ultimately did to ‘GH.’ Then again, she did to every show she’s helmed. I have a sneaky suspicion that is what Sony wants, but fans are very upset about Billy leaving, even though I know it was ultimately his choice. We’ll definitely miss him.”
Fan Molly McChesney is also loyal to Billy and Victoria on “Y&R,” and feels that the loss of Billy Miller is almost unbearable. “I just cannot believe after is great work, his popularity that the show would just let him go like this, Tommy!”
Hark, trust me. Billy Miller is one of Hollywood’s most beloved and most talented and handsome leading men. The loss to “The Young and the Restless” is great. But Farren Phelps doesn’t care. Until she’s gone, just know that she eventually is axed wherever she goes. And this too shall eventually pass. When Billy Miller hits the audition path, he’s going to be unstoppable.
