    From Daytime Confidential:

    The pink slips are a’ coming over at The Young and The Restless. CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting Daytime Emmy winner Genie Francis has been given her walking papers. According to the magazine, Francis was let go for “budget reason”, but I heard the daytime veteran’s tenure on the show wasn’t well-received by the brass at CBS and Sony. Jill Farren Phelps ain’t playing over there!

    Memo to General Hospital showrunner Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati: Give Genie a call. Laura’s needed over in Port Charles right about now!

    —————————————————————————-

    I’m sure this was all about budget reasons, those being that it was no longer worthwhile to pay Genie to be playing a character who shouldn’t be on the show.  I wonder what the chances are of her ending up back in Port Charles now?  I still think Frank Valentini sounded completely uninterested in getting her on.  Part of me also thinks that, considering all the returns and what have you, they may not have the money for it.  But every time I thought that on OLTL, someone else would return and prove me wrong.

    Genie needs to go back to GH. When all of her kids were on and when the show wasn’t this hybrid show, I would say contract. But I think the best route might be “special appearence” for the 50th.

    I read another quote, maybe on Soap Opera Digest’s website, where Valentini recently said something like, “Yeah, we love Genie, but we’re good.”  I wouldn’t be expecting her back at GH for anything other than possibly a brief stint, though I’m not even expecting that.
