HomeTVABCBye, Girl: Erin Chambers Mercifully Departs The Young and the Restless Jillian Bowe August 27, 2013 27 Comments Prayers have been answered for some fans of The Young and the Restless. Soap Opera Network is reporting Erin Chambers is out at the CBS Daytime sudser! According to the site, Chambers’ last episode aired Monday. In the installment, her character, Melanie Daniels, dropped trumped up rape charges against Adam (Michael Muhney) Newman. Chambers—best known for playing Siobhan McKenna on General Hospital while current Y&R showrunner Jill Farren Phelps was helming that soap—joined the Y&R cast in June. Much like with her GH character, Melanie was panned by critics and fans alike. Photo credit: ABC 27 Responses soapjunkie88 August 27, 2013 Obviously this story was cut short. Would be interesting to hear who decided to end Melanie’s claim that Adam has raped her. Anyway I’m glad that Chambers is gone. Hated her as Lucky’s Irish wife as much as I hated her as Melanie. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon August 27, 2013 terrible character terrible story terrible Executive Producer Log in to Reply pferrando August 27, 2013 Soap A… Yes. Nothing more to add. And this is yet another story that came out of nowhere, and then just ended. I guess that’s Josh’s trademark. Log in to Reply lance_prentiss August 27, 2013 Hallelujah! This senseless character/storyline ate up screen time that could have been used for more established characters. Hopefully JFP, nuKyle, and the Second Coming will be next! Log in to Reply JasamForever August 27, 2013 Even though I lime Erin Chambers, and as Siobhan on gh, she just did not fit on y&r. Kind of like Steve. I wish her all the best. Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. August 27, 2013 There is a soap God! Log in to Reply Jon August 27, 2013 I have nothing against Ms Chambers but it’s a shame she was cast as 2 dud characters. I did prefer Siobhan over Melanie, though. Log in to Reply hey mon August 27, 2013 Typical Josh Griffiths. Melanie vs Adam was built up as earth-shattering just 3 weeks ago — in promos, as apart of Villy, the Adam/Victor dynamic — now dropped and discarded, just like Marcus Wheeler and Gus Rogan — two characters I liked. Oh well, Josh, oh well. Thank goodness Lamon Archey was added to the mix as Mason in The Rose Saga, cause even one-note Hillary is trifling as the woman out for revenge against Neil Winters. He can at least humanize Hillary as her stud-lover. Log in to Reply Smitty August 27, 2013 you know what….that the title of this post….first two words said it all…BYE GIRL! LMAO Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott August 27, 2013 Bad storyline. Glad it’s wrapping up. Log in to Reply caringtype1 August 27, 2013 Don’t watch this show, but Siobhan was my favorite GH character for the entire time she was on. Sad to see her get fired again. Maybe these brain dead GH writers will find a way to bring her back. Log in to Reply stoney07 August 27, 2013 Bye Girl is right. I honestly didn’t even know she had rape charges on Adam. I can’t remember ever paying attention to a single scene she was in. Last scene I remember her in was after she had just slept with Adam and then called Victor and Adam was in the bathroom listening. That was the end of Melanie for me…IDK why, just never found her or the story that interesting.

She was on Veronica Mars Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 August 27, 2013 too bad her character wasn’t last seen pulling a gun on Dildo and forcing him out of the door, in front of her…. Log in to Reply Divatude58 August 27, 2013 What is unbelievable is that Chelsea was able to talk her out of the charges in less than a minute. Like many of Josh’s stories, there was absolutely no payoff. A waste of viewer’s time. Log in to Reply lightbringer August 27, 2013 Is Jill Phelps going with her? Log in to Reply noway August 27, 2013 I can tell you why it was cut short, WOMEN were more than likely giving CBS shit about false rape claims. It happens but we deal with enough shit on any given day we don’t want to see it on the show. Where’s the romance, where’s the love, the intrigue. Don’t blame Josh so much I know for damn sure, its JFP with the rape fetish. any questions see a now long defunct soap opera she ran into the ground 20 years ago. Log in to Reply pferrando August 27, 2013 I thought for sure she’d be murdered, but then I remembered MAB isn’t writing anymore. Love ya hey mon. Log in to Reply stoney07 August 27, 2013 ^^^LOLOL HAHA. I was reading spoilers somewhere else tho, and it had Melanie’s name all up on it for the fall. So did they cut the story completely, and that’s why there was no payoff, or were the fall spoilers wrong? Or did SON mean her last day on SET was Monday? Either way, the whole thing just seems pointless….I think its pretty safe to assume that the powers that be decided to put us out of our misery and end the story before it got worse…and for that, I’m grateful. Log in to Reply hey mon August 27, 2013 Yeah, but we still get another month or two of The Rose. Log in to Reply harlee490 August 28, 2013 Oh, Stoney I hope we don’t have to endure her into fall…unless she does end up dead…poor MM in this shitty story…ugh…I’m glad she & story is history, hopefully it’s gone.

You are CMTHU everytime you say that I think of some late night easy listening DJ with the smoky voice. Log in to Reply ChrisGa August 28, 2013 Well, at least someone somewhere realized that this story, character and actress weren’t working out on any level. Or, maybe I’m giving TPTB WAY too much credit and they intended all along to wrap the story up in a quick, lazy unimaginative little bow. Yeah, probably the second one. Log in to Reply RealityCheck 33 August 28, 2013 What a horseshit storyline that deserved a quick end. Michael Muhney deserves so much more than this kind of crap. JFPhuck-Up had better pull her head outta her dumb ass or she’ll be road kill like her former head writer Josh Griffith. Sony and CBS need to wake up and realize they have put an idiot in-charge of the most popular soap on television. Get your shit together morons. Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 August 28, 2013 Methinks Miss Lucky Charms is gonna end up DEAD. Log in to Reply pferrando August 29, 2013 RealityCheck…. Methinks ( thanks Tracey for the inspiration) you just gave CBS/Sony a fantastic wake up call AND reading! Pull your heads out now.
