Some of the changes in the cast included Billy Miller being replaced by David Tom and Cynthia Watros being replaced by Cady McClain. According to the latest update on "Y&R," Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe) is allegedly exiting the show and CBS is now hunting for Michael Muhney replacement. [Warning: Spoilers Alert!]
