Tristan Rogers in particular doesn't hide his disdain for JFP.

Basically Bev was able to leave GL while JFP was on vacation--and JFP couldn't anything about it, because it was in her contract to give--I think-- eight weeks notice before she left, and it fell around the time that Bev would be going on her own vacation.

If I remember right JDP was asked back for the OLTL finale but turned them down, at least I swear I remember Kassie saying he was asked

Nope, there was an interview with Kassie where she teared up because he was never even asked, which she didn't understand, as he had been there and been successful there long before she was even on the show.

JDP himself, however, said in the OLTL tribute magazine that he didn't care quite as much about not being asked back.

Ah, the late great legendary Beverlee McKinsey who stuck to JFP like no other actor ever did. Good times, good times. It never gets old reminiscing over how JFP got her deserved comeuppance hard and publicly if only once.Too this day, it makes me laugh with glee. The interview that Beverlee did explaining the whole story remains a classic and has been posted at SON several times.

Someone else might be able to explain it better, though.

This is pretty much the bottom line. If I'm not mistaken, they had 2 weeks to give her an exit. BM royally screwed JFP.

So what was it, they were going to write her out or something and she ended up using a loophole and quit?

I think they wanted to keep her, but she saw a loophole to leave (she didn't like the way Alex was being written by then), and quit.

What happened is that JFP was overworking the cast with long hours No one would complain because they were afraid and had mortgages so Bev spoke up on everyone's behalf at a meeting. She was also unhappy with her storyline. She had warned JFP and threatened to quit, but she ignored her and nothing changed. Finally Bev had enough and decided to quit. She was going on vacation so she looked at her contract which she had written herself, turns out that she had an out every six months, I think. Anyway, she counted the weeks and sent JFP her resignation while she was on vacation and never returned to GL. JFP was apoplectic, but there was nothing she or P&G could do. Bwah.

Ann, I believe BM had to give 8 weeks notice, and she chose to give that notice at the time she went on a 6 week vacation leaving them with 2 weeks to write an exit for the character, which left them royally screwed because of the BM/AS popularity.

I got this from Wikipedia, and it makes me grin from ear to ear lol

After she exited GL, McKinsey cited her "not very pleasant" work environment for one of the reasons she chose to leave GL. Looking at her contract, she discovered she could leave the show after every six-month period. So McKinsey took advantage of the contract the day before her annual eight-week vacation. McKinsey went on permanent vacation. McKinsey adamantly defended her choice to exit the show. Her bosses felt they had been bamboozled. "They're bent out of shape because, for once, somebody beat 'em at their own game," she said. "I had warned Jill (the show's then-executive producer Jill Farren Phelps) – although I don't think she paid attention to me – that I was not happy. I was not happy with the story line." She had confided in Phelps previously that she was frustrated enough to quit, and was told in response that perhaps she should read her contract.

McKinsey later quipped that perhaps it was Phelps and the rest of the GL production team who should have read the contract. "They didn't read the contract! I read it very closely. I knew every word. The next day, they were all combing over the contract. Somebody said, 'Maybe Beverlee's not familiar with the contract.' Well, of course she was! She wrote it, you bozos. She wrote it! I've had this out clause since 1986. I asked for it and it was P&G that determined how much notice they wanted me to give – and they chose eight weeks."

In addition to her issues with storytelling, which she said would not have motivated her to leave if her working environment had been happier, McKinsey noted that acting had simply stopped being fun for her. "The hours just made me crazy. They were too long," she explained.

Okay, here is her interview with Michael Logan with the details. I was wrong, turns out that Bev did return for one day to film her final scenes. Bwaaaah! Seriously, this story about how she screwed over JFP never gets old. Bev was a true Soap Goddess.

LOL. Ok, I stand corrected.

I read it a few years ago and laughed so hard. No one Jill is so hard now. She won't be fooled again. lol

So who are some actors/actresses that do not get along with Y&R executive producer JFP? I know of Steven Nicoles and Gennie Frances who are the others??

Well if you buy what GF recently said she and Jill supposedly are friends from way back.
