Melissa Claire Egan is NOT leaving The Young and the Restless. The actress had to shut down a rumor on social media when a fan tagged her in a post saying that it’s sad that she’s leaving and wishing her good luck in the future. Egan who recently celebrated her 11th year anniversary as Chelsea Lawson quickly responded, “Not sure where this stuff comes from, haha, no, not true” shutting down the rumors of an exit.
Fans may have assumed that Egan and her character were vacating the show because of Chelsea’s current storyline where she has been placed in a Mental Facility. However, that is not the case. We’re happy to hear that the rumors are not true and that will continue to have this talented actress on our daytime television screens.
