Susan Walters (Diane) off the show?

From TVGUIDE:


Is Susan Walters just moonlighting on her new show, Point Pleasant, which premiered on Jan. 18th? Or has sperm-stealing vixen Diane Jenkins left for good? "I'm not on Y&R anymore," the actress reveals to TV Guide Online. "I had an out in my contract that if I got a nighttime show, I could leave."

The timing of Walters' exit couldn't have been more, well, eerie. "I had just been put on recurring at Y&R before I got Pleasant," she shares. "And I left to do a movie as well." Walters may be happily beached on the Jersey shoreline, but her bosses at Y&R aren't tossing their oars just yet. The show is still not confirming whether Walters will be seen in the role if Diane pops up in Genoa City once again. "It's not our policy to comment on contract status," reminds a rep.

Well, I think Susan Walters did a great job playing Diane. I'm not real crazy about re-casts but I thought Susan did an outstanding job. I thought "Diane" was such an interesting character. I hope they bring her back.

I like the Diane character - I think the problem is they don't know what to do w/ her.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I agree about Diane...too bad because for a while there she had an interesting storyline. Remember when she and Phyllis were really going at it? lol

Diane & Phyllis made good enemies - they were constantly at each other that whole time when Phyl was married to Jack & they were trying to get Kyle.

I agree...Phyl and Dru are hilarious together!! Remember the time when Phyl/Jack and Neil/Dru were at Gina's and they were being so competitive with each other and trying to out-dance each other on the floor! I thought that was so funny.

I laughed out loud when Phyllis & Dru were in the elevator drinking & it started going down & they were hugging each other, thinking it was gonna crash.
