Sabrina Says Bye-Bye to Genoa City

Only five months into her 3-year contract, the gorgeous Raya Meddine has been let go from The Young and the Restless. Word has it that viewers did not take to her character, especially her becoming involved with a much-older Victor Newman, and marrying him after a few short weeks. Add to that the fact that she was supposedly pregnant with his baby — when fans will remember that Victor has had a vasectomy — well, it must have been too much for viewers to suspend their disbelief.

A preview of the show gives a glimpse of a tragedy happening in conjunction with the Charity Ball, so we are left to speculate that might be how Sabrina will be making her exit. A final airdate has not been announced. We'll give you more information as it develops.

I interviewed Raya a few months back, and she was thrilled to be a part of the show, and loved working with Eric Braeden and the rest of the cast. I'm sure she'll be sad to leave all her new friends and co-workers, and I'll be sad to not get to see what the future held for her character.

Good luck, Raya. You are such a bright and talented young actress, I know you'll land right on your feet in a new and even more-exciting project!
