Soap veteran Cady McClain weighed in on former The Young and the Restless costar Jessica Collins leaving the CBS Daytime serial. 

McClain wrote on Facebook

 "Really sorry that this lovely lady and talented actress was not appreciated as much as she should have been. She was (and still is) great to fans, has a huge following, an awesome food blog, is the nicest person you could hope to meet, is a complete professional, stunningly beautiful, and extremely talented.
I literally cannot think of a negative thing to say about her. In fact, I think she is way nicer than I am.
Why they decided to write her out, only a few know. Why they couldn't come up with something intriguing for her, I can't imagine. But I hope all the fans will continue to follow and support everything this lovely person does and I wish her all the happiness and success in the world. " 

Sources tell Daytime Confidential, Collins opted not to re-up with The Young and the Restless. Like Collins, McClain (who played Kelly) recently wrapped at the soap opera.
