The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson) is not leaving for her maternity leave yet, so the Y&R star clarified Chelsea’s exit delay on Twitter.
Despite how the story might seem, Chelsea isn’t being shipped off to a psychiatric hospital to explain away Egan’s absence.
Egan is still filming and will remain on screen in the weeks ahead, so this is all part of Chelsea’s exciting storyline.
The Y&R actress certainly gave an impressive performance as Chelsea put on a mental breakdown show for Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) and Michael Baldwin’s (Christian LeBlanc) benefit.
Chelsea did what she was told thanks to Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) plan to clear Adam Newman (Mark Grossman), but he vowed to give Chelsea a fresh start once she’s spent some time in this psych hospital.
As long as Victor keeps his promise, Chelsea will eventually go free and get a new beginning.
Will that new beginning tie in with Melissa Claire Egan’s actual maternity leave down the road? Time will tell, but the point is Egan isn’t leaving right now!
We’ll see more of Chelsea at her mental health facility, so there could be some interesting visits and perhaps some scary curveballs if things don’t go as planned.
Let’s look at what Egan had to say in a recent tweet, which helped to clear things up regarding her status. “Thanks so much for all the love on today’s episode! You guys rock…Chelsea’s such a fun character, & I’m so grateful I get to play her! And despite the story, I’m not leaving for maternity leave for a while! Much more story to tell. You’re stuck with me for a while longer,” Egan said.
Melissa Claire Egan has proven she’s got some top-notch acting skills, so we’ll look forward to this psychiatric hospital chapter for Chelsea and whatever shockers it might bring. As other news and updates emerge, we’ll keep you posted.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Chelsea certainly won’t enjoy her time locked up, but this temporary psych hospital stay beats a far lengthier stint in prison! CDL will have all the scorching Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news you’re looking for, so pop back in soon.
