According to a published report, Stacy Haiduk (Emily Petersen and Patty Williams) has been let go from The Young and the Restless. The actress' contract with the CBS soap has reportedly not been renewed.
"After a critically acclaimed and captivating run as Patty Williams and Dr. Emily Peterson on The Young and the Restless, Stacy Haiduk's contract was not picked up again," the fan site StacyHaiduk.info reports.
For much of the latter part of 2009, Haiduk was featured front and center in Y&R's storylines, as the actress pulled double-duty as psychiatrist Emily Petersen and the mentally unbalanced Patty Williams. As a result, many critics were stunned when, earlier this year, Haiduk did not receive a Daytime Emmy nomination.
Though not nominated, Haiduk was the talk of the Emmys in 2009. Haiduk appeared on the Red Carpet with a purse made out of a stuffed cat, her co-star on the show, "Mr. Kitty."
Haiduk joined the cast of The Young and the Restless in March 2009 after a short-term run on ABC's All My Children. In addition to her work in daytime, Haiduk has made numerous appearances in primetime, and landed roles in nearly a dozen feature films.
A spokesperson for The Young and the Restless did not respond to requests for comment for this article.
