  3. From Latoya

    Well I wish him all the best and I hope he gets other oppurtunities to be in another soap.

  4. From starry118

    I wish him well also…I can see him transitioning to primetime, or at least another soap, easily…I don’t know why they’re doing this, but oh well, maybe it’s best for him now

  5. From Toni D.

    Say its not so…
    Brad is one of my favs on Y&R.
    I hope to see him in feature films or prime time. I was hoping Brad & Sharon would restart their romance.
    Good luck to you Don! Y&R won’t be the same without you.

  6. From Beth M.

    He was one HOT addition to Y&R. I’ve been watching this show from day one! Wish I had a gardener like that.I will miss him.

  7. From Cathy

    You should definitely bring Brad back to the show. Give him a better storyline – he is worth watching, but has needed a good storyline for sometime now. What is wrong with Y&R letting this guy go??? Let Jill off the show or Billy or even Lily, but not Brad.

  8. From mollie

    Let Brad go! He did nothing for the show. I never like Brad.

    Good Luck Brad!

  9. From ANGIE

    OH NO! NOT BRAD!!!!! I HAVE BEEN WATCHING Y&R SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME… WE CAN NOT LOOSE BRAD, WE NEED BRAD HIS CHARACTER IS NEEDED!! HE IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE! All of the actors are wonderful on Y&R all we need is Dru and Y&R will be complete. I think Y&R and DAYS OF OUR LIVES are the best soaps on Tv. HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!!!

  10. From Merbie

    Somebody has to be very stupid to let the Brad Carleton character go. Don Diamont is not only really good looking, he’s a heavy equal to Jack – if not Victor himself.

  11. From patricia

    I am sad to hear that Don is leaving . I have loved to watch him over the years. I think since he has been there 24 years he is being paid top dollar and with the cutbacks they chose to let him to go. I think they need to get rid of Gloria and Jeff. They are sicking.

  12. From scmom

    I have been watching Don since he was on Days. He just keeps getting better looking as the years go by. He is by far the best looking male on Y&R and classy too. Sure will miss him.

  13. From MaryAnn

    I am so sorry to hear Don is leaving the show. Brad has always been one of my favorites. He just doesn’t get any good story lines. I will miss him, I have watched the show since the very beginning and have always loved Brad. I wish him the very best on his new adventure in his life.

  14. From Ann

    Letting Brad go would be the worst thing Y&R could do! Don Diamont is a great actor and Y&R should hold on to him. He is one of the only actors on the show that does not come across cheesy and unbelievable. What is Y&R thinking?!?!

  15. From Barbie

    If you were to get rid of anything it should be the stupid storyline with Esther and Roger. What a bunch of crap that is. Brad is not my favorite but a story line with some drama between him and Sharon would heat up the show. Where are the writers anyway. The more drama the better. I have watched from the beginning of the show and the only one I watch but if this type of thing keeps up I will likely drop this show too.

  16. From charlotte

    I am sad to hear that one of the best actor’s ( Brad Carlton) is leaving the show. i’ve been following this show since i was 10 years old, and this show beats all the rest. it doesn’t drag on like the rest. i hope he stays.

  17. From charlotte

    Your the best don! From winnipeg veiwers

  18. From charlotte

    Your the best Don! From Winnipeg Viewers

  19. From nicky

    I think it sucks he is leaving after so many years, i always hoped he and sharon would have got together, but after watching the show lately, sharon doesnt deserve him

  20. From Carol M.

    What a stupid move to have Don leave! His character involves alot of people, his two daughters, and also Sharon and Ashley. They have treated his character rotten ever since he been on the show. No happiness what-so-ever. As fine as he is, another soap will appreciate his remarkable acting skills because Young & the Restless didn’t. I notice they have new characters coming in for what?

  21. From KAREN

    THE WRITERS ARE IDIOTS, WHY WOULD THEY LET SUCH A TALENTED GOOD LOOKING GUY GO.

  22. From Dan

    I would so totally love to go— Brad – he is so hot. — would just make my day!

    Brad is any gay guy’s total fantasy. I mean, those sideburns alone cause me to cream my pants. The pecs, forearms and his sexy lips and pecs put me way over the top. Mount me, Brad!

  24. From Maurice

    Brad is any gay guy’s total fantasy. I mean, those sideburns alone cause me to cream my pants. The pecs, forearms and his sexy lips and pecs put me way over the top. Mount me, Brad!

  25. From KAREN

    HE WAS THE HEART OF THE SHOW, BRING HIM BACK

  26. From Vickie

    Brad was my favorite actor on the soap. I’ve been watching Y & R since day 1. hope to see him on another show or soap. Will miss you Don!

  27. From Aurelia

    Wrong person to remove from the show…
    REMOVE SHARON…
    REMOVE HEATHER..
    REMOVE JEFFERY…

    to many story’s on the show.
    Get more/better cast…

  28. From Donna

    sorry to see Brad go…who’s next…Victor….maybe Jack…how about Nicki…what’s wrong with the writers…must have writers block… to put it politely

  29. From Sonja

    I can’t believe that the show would actually let Brad go. They don’t have a lot of great story lines, and I am sorry but I am not into watching the teenage love crap that they are showing now. I think that the veterans of the show deserve more, and should come first in the stories. When will the writer’s learn what the fans really want?

  30. From Sonja

    I agree Karen about her comments on the writers being Idiots… I guess they don’t want to have their fans stay with the show. Don’t they realize that change isn’t always for the best!

  31. From Amy

    Just don’t understand why they are letting Brad go. GET RID OF UGLY PHYLIS!!!

  32. From Amy

    Get rid of Phylis instead of Brad. Phylis is a home wrecker SLUT!! I can’t stand to look at her when I watch the show.

  33. From Brenda

    I think this is such a bad move that Y&R is making for letting Brad go.I have been watching him since he was on Days of Our Lives. Give him a new love interest and not Sharon. PLEASE KEEP BRAD!!!!!

  34. From Alex

    I think this sucks, I really like the Brad character. I can’t imagine Y&R without him. Whoever made this decision at Y&R, YOU SUCK!
    Brad was a great character. What the heck!

  35. From Barbara

    My heart was in shock to hear that Brad was leaving. I would have really enjoy Sharon and Brad finally getting that romance they had always wanted. He lost Victoria because of his love for Sharon. But, they make her heartache for Nick. This is the reason why soaps get so boring. The writers wrote him into a corner of trash. He is amazing!!! I shall iss you.

  36. From linda c

    i am totally disgusted that the show is letting brad go. after so many years…..very sad i will miss him. maybe they should have focused on writing a better script for him. if anyone should leave maybe it should be ashley abbott.

  37. From Amy

    The problem with being a longtime viewer (I have been watching Y&R for 25+ years) is that when something like this happens, you feel like you are losing a member of your family. It sounds and feels crazy, but I’ve seriously been less upset about the deaths of some of my own relatives. If they need to save money, just have the character go away for a few years until they can afford him again. Why kill him? This SUCKS

  38. From Oona

    Not very happy to see Brad go. Not sure who is doing the casting lately but they should be the ones being fired! The actors they are bringing in are horrible. The show has done well for so long based on the characters that have been on the show for years! These new young actors are horrible. As a 41 year old viewer I am getting very bored.. To let Don Diamont go is an insult to the faithful viewers who want to see adult story lines. The kids are getting boring and i am glad i can fast forward through their scenes!!
    Shame on the Y & R for letting this actor go..

  39. From Jennifer

    This is HORRIBLE!! I love Brad even though he hasn’t had big story lines we can’t blame the actors for the writing. This is a big mistake. Gloria, Tyra, Devon, Amber, or even Colleen should go. They are all horrible actors. Phyllis is the worst of all. Please Don’t let Brad GO!!!

  40. From Debbie

    I am sorry to hear that Brad is elaving. I am finding The Young and the Restless more disappointing everyday. I have been watching for over 25 years, and the young puppy loves are sickening. the whole Cane/Lilly/Chloe/Billy thing is disgusting. I thinkg Brad should have been given a major part in the show, stronger and more important storylines. Good Luck to Don Diamont, and by the way, you get better looking with age! Kinda like wine!

  41. From LL

    I don’t like Brad’s character – so good riddens! On the other hand, I think Don D.is a good actor, and where ever he lands next will be lucky to have him.

  42. From Nancy

    I didn’t read any of the spoilers and after yesterday’s show thought maybe Brad would be a hero for saving Noah, but today realized there is no way he could have survived and went to the Spoilers site and then here. Y & R writers…I am a watcher since the day it went on the air. This is a huge, huge mistake. There could have finally been a story line with the aged Abby which just got started at the parent teacher conference and of course a love interest for Brad. Instead Brad gets one last week of decent scenes and then killed off?

  43. From Freida I.

    They’re letting Brad go? What a big mistake! He is one of my favorites. What they really need to do is give him better lines and if they need to cut someone, they need to cut Gloria, Jeff, Esther,or Jill. Please don’t let Brad go!!!!

  44. From Kayla

    I hate to see Brad go… I will miss seeing his pretty face!!!!

  45. From kevin

    THERES A TIME FOR A BEGINING AND A TIME FOR AN END.GOOD LUCK DON.

  46. From fan

    NO! get rid of old victor, even wishy-washy jack. but not brad. you can dump boring sharon. but keep brad. don’t let him drown in the frozen pond. thaw him out and bring him back!!! his story line as been weak, get a better writer for him.

  47. From J

    I had a feeling he might be leaving…..the way he’s currently….”nowhere to be found”. Very sad…..great(good looking)actor. Would love to see him make it in movies. Good Luck to Don.

  48. From Tina

    I can’t stand the thoughts over Don leaving the show. He is one of my favorites. I was hoping he and Sharon would get back together. He is a great actor and I hate he is being killed off and won’t have the opportunity to come back. This is like when Cassie died and she was one of the only kids we have ever saw grow up on the show. She did not go to boarding school and come back aged at least 10-12 years in only a few years. I will really be sad Brad is gone!! Good Luck Don, you will be missed greatly!!!!

  49. From lissa

    I am sad to hear that Brad is leaving. I mean come on, first Dru, and it was almost Victor. Then Nikki is leaving for awhile, But now Brad. Who is next Kay??What the heck is up with that??? Get rid of someone else. Like Gloria, of Jeff. The more Y & R cuts off and with whom they chose to do so, the show wont be worth watching at all.

  50. From jen B.

    Yes I am very dissappointed in the show producers and writers. They start stroy line and then don’t finish it and then do something as silly as letting one of their top notch bread and butter actors go! He has brought so many fans to the show and now they let him go the way they did! They should have at least given him a graceful exit with a chance for a return one day. There story lines really are poor lately and with this, I have to wonder if the writers should be fired! Their lack of writing skill really is noticeable and has made me look into not being a fan anymore due to their poor choices in story devleopment and letting go of characters that really have the potential to make the show interesting long term.
    I have lost respect for the folks who write the show s scripts and also the producers who really have demonstrated poor judgement and a real lack of respect for one of their most loyal actors! A boss should always treat their employees with dignitee and they have made it clear that they owested him unecessarily!
    From a now ex-fan! :(

  51. From christina

    I’m very sad that brad is leaving i wish him all the best but witch soap opera will he be on next?? please LET US NO SO WE CAN WATCH IT!!

  52. From Patricia

    This is one of the worst decisions they have ever made. The show will not be the same without him. The only thing worse is the reunion of Sharon & Nick. Nick’s amnesia is really something, since he seems to have totally forgotten how she cheated, ran off leaving him with the children, and even made a pass at his father.
    I am sure Don will do really well without Y&R, it’s Y&R that will suffer without him. I wish him all the best. He will be greatly missed.

  53. From Dave

    I’m very upset about Brad’s character leaving the show so I directly let the writer, director and producer of Y&R know of my great disappointment of their decision. So, in support of Don Diamont and his role on the show, if any of you is as disgusted as I am and if you haven’t done it yet, you could still send Y&R an email and voice your disappointment directly to them. If you’re interested their email address is: yrbb@tvc.cbs.com
    Maybe we can convince them to somehow revive Brad! Best of luck!!! Let’s bring him back.

  54. From Rich

    I’m truly upset with Brad leaving.

  55. From JM

    They just found him DEAD in the ice.

  56. From Kim Bostic

    This very upsetting! Brad should have been the last one to go . He had very good story lines that the show could have put him in. The much older actors like Jack should have been cut loose. if it was anyway to keep this actor it should have been worked out. Brad was in electrifing actor just like Drucilla Winters. This is a very bad lost for the show

  57. From D A Jackson

    I really hate to see Don Diamont go. I felt it was coming because the story lines for him were terrible. He is such a good actor. I think the writers are the ones who should be let go they are horrible! Its a shame creativity stinks these days.

  58. From helen

    i think that instead of getting rid of don diamont the writers should be replaced. if they do the same thing to the young and the restless that they did to the guiding light they should just cancel the show. i consider don diamont one of the main characters and should be treated as one. eric breaden is truely the star but he’s not a one man show. to don i wish you bigger and better things in life!

  59. From Jade

    I totally agree with Barbara. I really wanted to see Brad and Sharon together. The fact that he is leaving really sucks. And I wish that they would let Kay Chancelor get her memory back. This whole idea of stalling is getting old.

  60. From Dan

    Brad is every gay man’s dream. What a hunk. It’s a sad day when they keep a crypt-keeper like Victor and kill off Brad Carlton.

  61. From Dan

    let me lick the ice off of Brad’s body. I’ll warm him up!

  62. From Dan

    frankly, I think Brad should have just turned gay. Wouldnt that be an exiting story line. Brad could have stolen Nick from Phyllis and Sharon. Or he could have had an affair with Jack – sort of a bigbro youngerbro bromance thing. imagine Nick and Brad writhing in bed kissing each other all over. Hot!!

  63. From Dan

    the Catherine Chancellor scene is now reading like the real/fake Krystal on Dynasty. It got tired real quick as it was not credible. Y&R should take its que from a soap that failed over stupid vapid writing.

  64. From Pat

    I cannot believe Brad is leaving the show. I am soooo upset! I felt for sure they would’ve written that the ice would’ve preserved his body and they were going to defrost him slowly and bring him back to life. Sharon & Brad were electric together. Need to get rid of Gloria & Jeffrey – going nowhere & Esther storyline.

  66. From Lisa

    Wow, I have been watching Y&R since I was little. Pretty close to 25yrs Ive been watching. Letting Don Diamont(Brad)leave is a huge mistake. I dont know why, nor do I care why, just BRING HIM BACK!! Y&R will never be the same. I heard it was due to his long run with the show and to keep the longest running cast members would be too costly. I truly hope it is not the case, letting him go may prove to be a costly mistake. We love u Don and if it was ur choice to leave we wish u all the best :)

  67. From Trish

    I think they ran out of storylines for Brad. He is still in love with Sharon, but it looks like she is getting back with Nick, so there will be a triangle between Nick, Phyllis and Sharon, Victoria is married to JT, Ashley is with Victor, so who’s left? He doesnt have a job anywhere, he got fired from Newman when Victor came back, Jill played him to the left after he fed her information on Newman, she betrayed him by putting Cane in charge, so he has been kind of wandering around with nothing to do. But I think he will be back. Somehow the outrage of the fans will make them bring him back. What he will do when he does return I am not sure, but I hope the writers have better or more material by then.

  68. From Kelly

    WHAT ON EARTH is Y & R doing killing off Brad!!! I am sick to death about this and shocked!! He was one of the finer actors on the show….what a sad sad day!!!

  69. From Kellie

    OMG!! I am sooo upset that they are letting Brad go!!! What the heck!?!?!? I am so mad! This is the poorest decision they could have made! He was such a great asset to the show and I think the writers made a huge mistake not making his character something more.! They could have done so much with him.. why they didnt I will never understand! I have been watching this show for so long and he was such an asset to the Young and Restless.. it will never be the same without him!! I am so over some of the storylines.. they could have done something else with those and let Brad stay! This is absolutley heartbreaking! Young and the Restless what were you thinking?!

  70. From Suzanne

    OMG I can’t believe they are getting rid of Brad Carleton. What are they thinking over there? He is one of the main characters. I have watched this show from day one and loved when Don Diamont joined the cast.

  71. From Murielle

    I’ve watched the show a long time and always liked Brad. You should really get rid of Gloria, why would a veteran of the show like Don have to leave, when so many of the new characters could be given the pink slip. I think this is a huge mistake on the writters part.

  72. From Lisa

    I agree with Tammy and with the others. Brad has been a part of the show since 1984? He is part of the show. You just don’t go and change things, there are not always for the better. In this case it’s for the worse. Bring Brad back in the show!! Make up a twin Brother..or something. The people that watch the show should have a say so. WE make the show without us their would be no viewers. Brad should decide to leave the show if he wants not let go. That’s just crazy. I thought the show was getting better. Then it takes a turn for the worse. That is a hugh mistake to let Brad go! Bring him back! HE is Young and The Restless.

  73. From Dan

    I am sorry about the comments I made I am just a stupid little immature little kid Frankly if you put any homos on this show you would lose a lot of viewers. I am sick of seeing fags in every show or movie. Why doesn’t the President boycott them for the usa. The Usa would be a lot better place. I apgolize to Brad and the fans and to the Y&R for the stupid comments.

  76. From Martina

    sorry to see Don Diamont leave. What a terrible decision. They could have at least kept him until he was 50. Bad move.

  77. From Dee

    Why would they get rid of Brad when he has so much to offer the show. I’d rather have seen Sharon with Brad than Jack. The writers could have given him alot better stories. They needed to bring in another woman for him. Someone who could have waken Sharon up. Something! The writers need some help!

  78. From Penny

    I love Brad and I am so sad that he is gone. I can’t believe they would do this. There are so many other worthless characters on that show. At least this one was nice to look at. They should have revived his story line, or at least left it open ended so he could possibly come back in the future.

  79. From Ophelia Mourne

    I am so sad about Brad. First Dru now Brad! and I agree they could have cut a few other people out rather than him. Hopefully it was Don’s decision and he has better opportunities for his career coming.

  80. From Chellie

    Sorry to see him go….I am hoping he will be found in the snow and that they buried someone else (Katherine). I grew up watching Brad’s body. Now that I am home with my kids, Brad and Nick keep me company for an hour. Y&R is the only soap I watch….they should have gotten rid of someone else. I am very upset by this.

  81. From Robin

    I think that was dumb to let Don go. Who’s idea was that? They should be let go!!! Now what you’ll gonna do. How can you replace him. He was hot and interesting. If you couldn’t come up with part for him right now you should have let Abbey move in with him where she belongs. I hope you all don’t make a her out to be little rich bitch. Brad loved her very much you all should have let him be a part of her adult life. That was not fair. Now with me saying this you all better find away to bring him back you crazy horses!!!

  82. From shannon

    I cannot believe Y&R let Brad go and brought Ashley back!Brad was a staple of the daytime show and is one of the reasons Y&R is rated the #1 day time soaps. This is truly the end of an era!! Don, we will miss you, your character and your handsome face! I am grieving along with the characters. Y&R needs to reconsider this decision. Unthaw him! Use high technology and write Victor as the financial backer (unbeknownst to Genoa City)in the thawing of Brad Carlton!! Now that is a story line. See my agent!!

  83. From Heather

    I loved Brad. He made me restless and feel young. Wow he could hold his own with Victor THAT’S WHAT THE SHOW NEEDS!!! Lose the whimpy Gloria and Jeff story…Ester and whoever…y&r had talent with Brad but were too unskilled to use it.For goodness sake Don was top 10 beautiful people and still holds his own….What a face .. what a body..

  84. From kay

    I have loved to hate Brad for years. I will miss him

  85. From Jennifer P

    It sucks that Don left the show who cares about his age what about Jeanne Cooper or Eric who plays victor who has been on the show the longes you guys did’t make them leave the show but Don that is not fair he was doing so good on the show that he could’ve brought so much more to the show and the Y&R had to let him go that’s not right the show should’ve gave Don another chance but they had to make him die when he was trying to save Noah in a lake and he had to freeze that’s not right I want brad back

  86. From LILY

    THEY MUST BE STUPID TO LET DON DIAMONT GO. I AM NOT SURE IF I WANT TO WATCH THE YOUNG AND RESTLESS ANY MORE. THE WRITERS NEED THEIR HEADS EXZAMINE.HOW STUPID TO LET A GOOD ACTOR LEAVE AFTER 25 PLUS YEARS.

  87. From Cynthia

    Why does Y&R let people stay on so long that they become part of OUR family and then expect us to be ok with dumping them… we are not OK with losing long term actors unless they choose to leave on their own terms. Either rotate all characters or keep them but don’t discard them as if we don’t love them.

  88. From Daphne

    New writers are changing this show – hope they know what they are doing??? Too much teenage drama – are young people really watching this show in large numbers? Guess I’ll have to find a new soap to watch. Best wishes to Don Diamont -hope to see him again.

  89. From Janet

    Heather is the one that should have left. Brad’s character could have gotten involved with any of the women on that show and caused issues creating storylines. Heather is boring and she should have been the one to leave. Once in a while when writers have something good going on, they mess it up. Sometimes leave well enough alone.

  90. From Inez

    I am so sorry this fine actor had to leave the show. I met Don and he was so awesome! There are some characters on the show that need to leave. Please let his fans know where he will be so we can see him again.

  91. From Beth T.

    You have not only taken off one of the best actors and characters on Y&R (Don Diamont)but now you have lost many long time viewers as well. This was a poor decision removing Don from the show. I’ve not only lost all interest in Y&R but I have lost ALL faith in your writers. Fairwell!

  92. From Michelle

    I have been a Y&R fan since the early 80′s, even before Brad was a cast member. I love Don I was so unhappy to hear that he was leaving the show. I was hoping this was a dream or I should say nightmare. Y&R and Bold and the Beautiful are the only soaps I watch. Brad’s role was truly an important role. He was not only a great actor but he was eye candy as well. I hope that the writers on the show can write him back in. Such awful day in GC.

  93. From Michelle

    GOD BLESS Don Diamont. I loved this man’s character on the show but knowing he’s a real life believer he will be blessed for higher things in life. I miss him and was shocked but he’s held in more trusting HANDS than people who write soap operas.

    OMG!I cannot believe my ears! Don Diamont is a brilliant actor. I love Y&R and it is my favorite soap.I watch it daily. Also, @ nite on soapnet. I would’nt be suprise if there ratings drop!

    Come on, actors are just as worthy as some of the writers and supervisors. Have any one suggested cutting some of their pay, or even yet! How come they didn’t cut some of the other actors and actresses pay. I know several on the show who are not worthy of staying, if a soap veteran like DON DIAMONT???????
    BRING HIM BACK!!!!!!!BRING HIM BACK @ ONCE!!!!!

    UNHAPPY VIEWER

    Well, Well, Well. I just read some blogs, and if what I read is true? Shame on you! what happen to the great days of the late great Bill Bell & his lovely wife. You guys are utterly ridicoulous. Brad is what’s up! I can’t believe my ears or my eyes. Are you guys gearing up for a younger audience. I beg to differ. Kids should be in school when this awesome show of 30 plus years, I have watched. I am 43 years old, I could not imagine life without y&r, but if you so call producers keep fixing things that are not broken, you are going to be on the bottome of the list instead of the top. The same ppl that made the ratings go up, can damn sure bring them down. I will continue to tune in, but only to see if you producers are really taking the advice of your diehard fans. And, I am definitely a diehard fan. I have been watching since I was 13, whenever I didn’t have school, vacations, and holidays. Please listen to the beck and call of your fans. I was told we count. Prove it! Prove it! bring sexy awesome Don Diamont back okay! Until the next time, I log on. Be Breezy!

    If you need to get rid of a character due to money issues then get rid of the girl who plays Abby. She is one terrible actress.

  97. From CaldwellDeann

    Every one knows that our life is very expensive, nevertheless we require money for various stuff and not every one gets enough money. Thence to receive good lowest-rate-loans.com or just sba loan would be a right solution.
