'Young and Restless' Star

My Marriage Has Been Cancelled

1/2/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Victoria Rowell
- who played Drucilla on "The Young and the Restless" -- is getting divorced, and the backstory to her marriage is fascinating.

Victoria's husband, collage artist and sculptor Radcliffe Bailey, filed to end their 4-year marriage.  TMZ has obtained the settlement agreement, which shows the couple had a prenup so no money was on the line.  And, they had no kids, so it seems the divorce was pretty simple, with one caveat.

According to the settlement, "Each agrees that he or she shall not in any manner disturb, bother, harass or otherwise interfere with the other party."

54-year-old Victoria lived in a number of foster homes.  When she married Radcliffe a number of her foster mothers were on hand at the New Hampshire church.

Victoria has tons of credits, including "Cosby," "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and 9 years on both "Y&R" and "Diagnosis: Murder."  And best of all ... she plays Amanda in "Grand Theft Auto V."

She once said, her dating experiences were like "the desert -- just enough water for inspiration."

Looks like it's back to the well.

I hate when TMZ pulls this crap. There's absolutely nothing unusual about the wording in the settlement--it's pretty standard. And being that Harvey and Charles are lawyers, they'd know that. Guess some space needed filling today, eh?

I think Victoria Rowell would be very difficult to live with. And Liz, you are right. She burnt all the bridges that would ever have brought her back to Y&R.

Victoria Rowell was considered by many viewers of Y&R to be one of the top tier "stars" of the show. Anyone with any knowledge of the ratings could attest to that fact. During her years on the show she was was really the only reason I watched. It will never be as good without Victoria Rowell. Never. That is simple fact. I miss her every day on that show. She was the brightest star on the show in the same way Susan Lucci brought star power to All My Children. Unfortunately racism is why Ms.Rowell isn't on Y&R. She spoke up and was ostracized for her very vocal reaction to a racist regime.
