The soap mainstay added, "But I’ve had a good run at it, so I’m one of the lucky ones."

That said, Kimberlin admitted, “It’s a tough place for me to be in right now; I’m not going to lie about this. I guess if anyone were going to take Sheila down, I’m happy it’s Steffy.”

So the truth is, we'll have to keep watching to find out if somehow, some way, Sheila claws her way back onto the show. Until then, fans are low key devastated about the loss of the character.

"Please don't go. We started watching again when you came back!!!" one fan wrote on Instagram.

"You’ve been such a blessing to this soap. Loved all the Shelia crazy," another fan commented.

Finally, another fan lamented, "I absolutely love Sheila and will be so disappointed if she is off the show. Please say it isn’t true. Or at the very least…maybe go to Genoa City. I only watch when Sheila is on!"

So perhaps we'll meet Sheila again over on The Young and the Restless? After all, that is where the role originated. Fingers crossed!
