Rebecca Herbst, whose character, Elizabeth Webber Baldwin, has been shipped off to Shadybrook mental hospital, took to social media to assure fans she’s still with the show. “Just thought I’d shut down some rumors that have been circulating: I haven’t been fired. I’m not on vacation. I don’t have COVID. My kids don’t keep me from working. Nor do I have cramps (the best one yet),” she posted on Twitter.
