Bye, Girl: Erin Chambers Mercifully Departs The Young and the Restless



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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    ^^^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.

    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.

    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.
