Exiting Elizabeth Hendrickson Teases Y&R Catfight: “Things Are Getting Physical, And Not in a Sexual Way!”




Look for sad sack Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) to get some of her spunk back before leaving Genoa City. Hendrickson gave an informative exit interview with Soap Opera Network, where she teased, among other things, the upcoming Jabot fashion show and a gnarly catfight between Chloe and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan)!

Said Hendrickson on the smackdown:

And the great thing about Missy is that she was all in and ready to take one for the team. Everything [you’re going to] see is real; we really went for it. I even had bruises at the end of the day! Granted, I do bruise really easily, but it’s funny, because as the bruises were getting darker and bigger throughout the weekend, I kept on sending Missy pictures and was like, ‘Look at what you did to me!’ It was pretty funny.” READ MORE
