After being bumped to recurring status by her own request, Alexis Thorpe (Rianna Miner) has decided to leave Y&R to devote her time to other projects. Miner was apparently forced to pass on outside projects because her Y&R work schedule did not permit her to take time off to work on those outside gigs. Thorpe makes her exit on February 14th.
