The latest casting shocker is coming from THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, where E! News is reporting that they're hearing from a source that Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) is leaving the soap!

Stafford joined Y&R in 1994 and racked up nine Daytime Emmy nominations over the years, taking home the trophy twice — once in 1997 for Supporting Actress and once in 2004 for Lead Actress.

UPDATE: We still have no details about when Stafford will last air, or how Phyllis will be leaving the canvas, but sadly, the reports are true. CBS Daytime vice president Angelica McDaniel even tweeted: "[Michelle Stafford] has been a huge part of the Y&R family. Respect her decision to move on, but will miss her. Wish her the very best always."
