Has Yvonne Zima Finally Been Fired From The Young and the Restless?





Has the day The Young and the Restless fans have been begging for finally come to pass? No, I am not talking about Kay Alden returning to helm the writing room, while Maria Arena Bell goes off to head a fundraiser for the restoration of authentic paper dolls from Colonial America, but something almost as spectacular!

Soap Opera Uncensored's Nelson Branco is reporting Yvonne Zima (Daisy) has been let go! According to Branco, a male actor has also been axed from the sudser. Thanks, CardsFan for the tip!

    The prevailing theory is that it is Peter Porte, who plays Ricky.

    I would like to think this is a step in the right direction (finally!) but I’m fearing this is going to be just another boring murder mystery story.

    One that drags on forever and ever and ever; and if Daisy does wind up dead, I want her killer to get a parade, not prison.

    This is a good start. Next thing they need is a new show runner and new writers.

    Remember when writers were quick to see something that wasn’t working and would change course quickly? Why must Y&R’s writers belabor storylines that don’t work and end up changing something only after kicking and screaming?

    Nelson Branco said the Actor was in a Story arc Sounds like Ricky to me Stephen Nichols don’t think so I think we will see a Tucker/GenV/Colin/Jill Story later this year

    Yeah, that would make the most logical sense; they seem to be writing that character into a corner that he won’t be able to get out of and since his name isn’t Eric Braeden(Victor’s been unredeemable for years and still no consequences)he’s probably toast. Too bad; although Ricky is a little creepy, Peter Porte is some of the best eye candy on Y&R right now.

    So glad Daisy will be gone! Funny how she stayed but the guy playing her brother was let go early on. The show really needs to get back on track, maybe Sony is letting MAB have it and these changes are signs of what’s to come! I want to watch Y&R again!

    Let’s hope it’s true. I don’t hate the actress, just her character and her acting ability. And, as some have mentioned here, if Maria sees this character as the NEW SHEILA than all I can say is RECAST the role. This woman is no match in deeds or acting chops to go up against Phyllis, Lauren or even ABBY or Chloe (not that she has any scenes with those actresses but words alone and their deliveries of them would crush Dull-zy).

    Maybe this will give Maria reason to re-direct the show back to the right cast members and stories. Let’s hope that the male actor is Ricky since he has been horribly used on this show. No interaction with Paul, or his GC family or even mention of Isabella’s family.

    Let’s hope that Maria streamlines the cast more and sends Sophia away on a long business trip with Tucker and Ashley (Eileen Davidson sticks around).

    Y&R was the best and with a major reboot COULD see fans come back in droves unlike Days’ reboot which saw them return for only a short time.

    If Zima is gone, trust Bell to go out there and find one of the few actresses who is WORSE than her to replace her, if that’s even remotely possible. :tired: :tired:

    And the T/G/C/J storyline will obviously have to wait until Jess Walton gets back from her 6 month leave from the show to help her son and his wife out with their new baby and her first grandchild.

    Don’t count on Eileen sticking around. Either Sony or MAB fired her and obviously, we don’t know the reason why because Eileen doesn’t know why she was fired either. I just hope that she shows up on Days and comes back as EJ’s Mother! Days is where Eileen got her Outstanding Lead Actress Emmy nomination only to lose it to someone else that year (and she was robbed)!

    Bet Daisy gets killed & Ricky or Daniel are the suspects.Hear Ronan’s returning and the last time he did this was when Dianne was murdered.Looks like another boring murder mystery.So hope I’m wrong.

    I suppose Peter Porte will be leaving and I agree with ChrisGa that he is definitely good to look at physically.He also plays creepy well. J) YR is definitely short in the eye-candy department compared to GH!! :)

    So do I, he makes Katherine so boring. She needs Jill to keep her on her toes and bring out her sense of humor.

    SN should return to the character that fits his hairstyle-Patch, he’s pointless on Y&R. I didn’t see any spark with GF or SN in the Genevieve/Tucker scenes so if they were a hit on GH I doubt it’s going to transfer.

    I cant stand Daisy just because she never gets whats coming to her. Hopefully, she will finally get whats coming to her. I mean how stupid are they writing Daisy? Its so obvious that Daniel married her so she could see Lucy. Everybody knows that and why Phyllis, of all people questioning why he married her, I’ll never know.

    Btw, I think Ricky is on his way out. Is it me, or did he kill somebody?

    I for one hope that Peter Porte is not being fast forwarded out of the picture. We do not (and Paul does not) need another crazoid to contend with so soon. I still feel that it is all too sudden and obvious for Ricky to actually be the crazy guy everyone is starting to think he is.

    … and, if Daisy’s dead body is not seen by all then she will definitely be back to haunt.

    Not a fan of the character of Daisy…actress is ok but not her fault if the writing s not there for her…Phylis obsession story is going to be good because she does deserve to get some…after all she brought Daisy back in the first place & didn’t hesitate to take Lucy away from Abbotts …I foresee a Shick reunion though MAB has that story on a snails pace!

    Let’s hope they clear the landscape of more than one weed. Daisy definitely should be the first to go, with Ricky on her heels. I have never understood MAB’s fascination with mentally deranged characters or why she insists on going too far with their storylines.

    Daisy should have never gotten out of jail, much less been granted custody. To have Patty Williams, Daisy Carter and Ricky Williams on the canvas simultaneously was too much craziness. Ricky’s psychopathic behavior was evident from the moment he was SORASed. I would have rather seen Paul Williams finally hook up with a woman instead of this stupid s/l with Ricky.

    I on board for Daisy getting killed. I really don’t blame the actress, I blame the way the character is written. I really would like to see Ricky stay so Paul can have more storyline.

    shane1969… it would be nice if Ricky does turn out not to have done dastardly deeds, get over his current objectives (except of course when it comes to Phyllis) and be able to share a normal familial relationship for Paul to finally enjoy.
