Word on the street according to SID it was actor Thad Luckinbill's (JT, The Young and The Restless) decision not to renew his contract with the CBS sudser. His real life wife and fellow co-star Amelia Heinle gives her take on her hubby's exit:
"It's a blessing in disguise. He's never been in this position before. [He] is going to grow as a person and as an actor. I hope he gets a cop show! He's done guest roles on primetime because he was working on Y&R. Now that he has nothing holding him back, you just wait — he's going to [succeed even more]. I know it. He's going to be so happy that this has happened."
