    From Daytime Confidential:

    I’m hearing from multiple sources Jessica Collins is leaving The Young and the Restless.  The actress joined the CBS soap as Avery Bailey Clark in 2011. 

    Avery is currently in a front burner love quadrangle with ex-husband Joe Clark (Scott Elrod), her true love Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case).

    Avery’s exit story is being kept under wraps. However, I hear a planned plot twist was so heinous head writer and executive producer Chuck Pratt was forced to rewrite it.

    “What Chuck originally planned for Avery would have been the worst thing the soap had ever done,” said a set side source. “It would have been Armageddon.”

    Keep checking back with Daytime Confidential as this story develops.

    ——————————————————————
    Interesting bit about Chuck Pratt’s plans for Avery’s exit having to be scrapped.  Though I saw Jessica Collins give some good performances, I never liked the character of Avery at all.

    Well, the only thing I can think of is that she was going to be the murderer but that makes no sense at all (except that it’s the kind of thing Pratt might do)…. she gave some very good performances but I also never warmed towards Avery. I hadn’t quite realized she has been on the show for four years.

    Jessica Collins was great, but the character was a dud from the beginning.  DC is now reporting what Pratt’s initial idea was along with their commentary on the matter.

    Not sure I would be riding Pratt quite as hard as DC is, but I have to agree that Pratt’s idea was a terrible one.

    I really like Jessica Collins, but her character was not well-written. Hopefully, she will find a better role on a different soap, or some fulfilling work outside of daytime.

    Chuck Pratt is gross.
