Mia St. John Sets Record Straight On Report About Y&R's Kristoff St. John As "Fabricated Information" And That "An Incident Occurred"

Photo Credit; HutchinsPhoto.com

The ex-wife of The Young and the Restless, Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) made an official statement to ET following an item from TMZ on Sunday that said that the Daytime Emmy-winning actor had allegedly threatened to kill himself with a gun after allegedly sending photos to her, and was hospitalized and placed under psychiatric evaluation.

Mia St. John, revealed that these reports are “inaccurate”, but that an “incident” did occur.  All of this is happening as the 3rd year anniversary of the death of their son, Julian, approaches in November. As Mia relates the talented fan favorite actor’s heart is “broken”, because of it.

In her statement, Mia expressed: “I want the world to know the truth about what is happening with Kristoff, because currently there is inaccurate, and fabricated information being reported by certain online outlets. No parent should ever have to bury their child, and for those who do, it is a nightmare that haunts you forever. The death of our beloved son Julian, has taken a toll on both of us. He is an actor and while he may appear whole on the outside, his heart is broken. As a society we need to start taking mental health seriously and realize that no one is immune. Last week, an incident occurred, that pushed him to the breaking point, but was not accurately reported. I hope that at this moment we can all wrap our arms around Kristoff and help him in this time of need. Help him heal and move forward. This is not a ‘gossip’ story, or an interesting headline, this is a man trying to deal with a tragedy, that has torn apart his soul. Right now what he needs is your thoughts and prayers.”

Share your thoughts on Mia’s statement in the comment section below, as we keep Kristoff in our hearts, thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

I think she’s spot on. It doesn’t matter what Kristoff did or din’t do. What matters is that he’s hurting and needs positive, loving help. I can’t imagine the pain he must be experiencing since his son passed away.

He has given so much to the soap community over the years. It is only fitting that we support him and send our best wishes, thoughts and prayers toward him.

God bless you, Kristoff; you and your family.

No one can imagine, Rodd, unless one has gone through the unbearable pain. It lives within you….never out of one’s thoughts.
I know what Kristoff is going through. All I can say is to put one foot in front of the other and take comfort in the fact his son is in good hands.
I have my crying spells when that wistful feeling overtakes me, but, I do know my baby is with God’s little angels, playing happily…pain free.
Thinking of you, Kristoff. I know these are just words…..be strong!!

I too, lost my son. He was 25 years old. This was 19 years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your feelings of helplessness are real, BUT I can promise you that it will be different as time goes on. You are so loved by so many, with so many reasons to live. If you give up, too many others are going to say, “me too”. No one can tell you when your grief will become bearable, but I know that I try to live each day making my son proud of his mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My thoughts and prayers are with kristoff at this difficult time. May God wrap his arms around him and ease his and your broken heart. I am sorry people can not report the correct news. That adds more stress to everyone involved. He is a wonderful actor but as a fan I knew in my heart he was suffering. All my love to you both.

As a viewer and fan of Y&R sinc 1984, Kristoff has been one of my favorites since he hit the canvas. With that being said, my heart goes out to him and his family during this difficult time. No parent should bury their child. I can’t even begin to imagine what thoughts must be going through his mind right. It’s disgusting what the tabloids will say to sell a paper. I am hoping Kristoff can find strength and healing through this most personal of times

My heart goes out to you and your family, I myself lost a son almost 12 years ago and im now raising his 3 children and have been for 12 years. The oain never goes away and seeking help is so important because it is beyond ourselves to deal with such a tradegy. May God be with you.

I am praying for you. I have watched Y and R for the entire time that it has been broadcasting so I can say that you are like a family member. My prayers go out to you because I have lost a child. It’s a pain like none other and it never goes away but it is one that you learn to cope with. My son’s birthday and the anniversary of his death are within 2 weeks of each other. His birth date is Oct. 27 and he passed on Nov.10. I pray that God heals you and fills the void. Only He can as our Creator. He is Who I cling to in my time of grief. He’s the One Who wired us so He is the Only One Who can repair and make us whole again. Lean on Him and you will be okay.

Hi

I lost a brother Charlie 9 year ago he was 52 . It was a shock to the family and across the Art community. I was very close and I still miss him. But I went the next week and bought a puppy for the family to help us get through this. I have been watching Y and R since 18 to talk to kids at school. Your a great actor and hope your back soon. Love seeing you with Lily. Take one day at a time. Be possitive. Takecare thoughts are with you.

I hate that the media horns in on the privacy of actors and actresses only to get a story.I can’t imagine losing one of my children and i know the grief is unbearable.I do understand the hopelessness that he’s going through. I once was at a point in my life where I would beg God to kill me and get me out of my misery.But God had bigger plans for my life.God also has plans for Krisoff oh the testimony he will have for others going through what’s y’all are going through.I am praying God gives him peace and hope.Remember God will never leave you where you are.Just when you think you can’t take anymore is when God shows up.

I think that Mia said it all perfectly, and with so much poise and grace. My brother just lost his daughter 2 months ago in a car crash, and he, along with the rest of our family, is suffering unbearably. My heart goes out to Mia and Kristoff, and their loved ones. No parent should ever have to bury their child. It is something that

There should be no stigma for those who suffer. Jesus sat with the afflicted, with those who were suffering. I hate how we demonize or friends and family members when they are challenged with issues of mental health.

I am so moved by the warm wishes expressed by others here. I feel great sadness for those who lost a child. In the sixth grade my best friend lost his sister unexpectedly. It was a pain that never really left. And the anniversaries were reminders just as much as birthdays and holidays. The entire family was devastated. I learned so much from them. I learned that love had other dimensions and loss could be endless

Sincere wishes for peace and healing to all.

Dearest Kristoff,

I remember watching you as a young child in “That’s My Mama” on TV and from your first Y&R appearance.

I am sure that Julian is with his Heavenly Father and also with you in spirit and love. Now please receive the love and prayers from all of us as we embrace you and lift you up.

Julie Chen Says Goodbye To THE TALK Via Video Message

As anticipated on Tuesday, Julie Chen officially and publicly exited The Talk.  Through a videotaped message to her co-hosts, viewers and staff and behind the scene personnel, Chen wrapped-up her run.

While Chen has bowed out of The Talk following her husband Les Moonves’ removal from CBS following allegations of sexual misconduct, she will continue on through the end of this season as the host of the reality-competition series, Big Brother.

On The Talk, Eve tossed to Chen’s videotaped exit message which the ladies of the panel also saw for the first time during the live broadcast:

Here is what Julie shared: “I have been at THE TALK since the day it started 9 years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family to me over the years. But right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I’ve decided to leave THE TALK. I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared. Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for. To everyone behind the scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much. To Eve: you’re the newest one at the table, but I feel like I’ve known you forever. You are even more beautiful inside than you are on the outside, if that’s even possible, because, you know I think you are flawless. Sheryl, thank you for being the perfect go-to partner for the last 7 years. I open, you close, and you always bring down the house. We called ourselves “The Book Ends,” remember? And we always laughed when we said it to each other. Your wit, and timing, and humor, and compassion, and intelligence is simply unparalleled. You are incredible. Carrie Ann (Inaba), I don’t know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair, my Asian sister. I’m just saying! And finally, to Sara and Sharon: we’ve been together since day one at THE TALK! I’ve spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and all the private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original three musketeers. I love you all, and I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I could not be more proud to call you my friends. I love you.”

Following the video, Sara Gilbert, creator and co-host of The Talk  thanked Chen for being a major part of the series ongoing success, as Sheryl Underwood looked on in tears.

70th Primetime Emmys: Game Of Thrones, Assassination Of Gianni Versace, ‘Mrs. Maisel’, Henry Winkler Are Night’s Big Winners

Last night in Los Angeles, the 70th Primetime Emmys were handed out.  The event featured several surprise winners, but without little drama throughout its 3-hour telecast that was hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che.

The awards kicked-off though finally honoring Henry Winkler, winning his first ever Primetime Emmy for his performance as Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for HBO’s Barry.

Winkler had previously won two Daytime Emmys.  First in 1995 for the Outstanding Children’s Special, CBS Schoolbreak special, All The Kids Do It, and in 2005 winning as Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for Clifford’s Puppy Days.

The former Fonz of Happy Days reacted on stage to his first primetime award victory exclaiming: “Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Oh, my god!

As the audience gave him a standing ovation Winkler added: “I wrote this 43 years ago.  Skip Brittenham (entertainment lawyer) said to me a long time ago: ‘If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you.’ And tonight, I got to clear the table.”

In another memorable moment, Glenn Weiss, who won for Outstanding Direction of a Special for “The Oscars” took his turn at the podium by honoring his late mother (she died two weeks ago) by proposing to his longtime girlfriend Jan Svendsen, on live television.

As Jan sat in the audience, Weiss began during his acceptance speech: “Jan, you are the sunshine in my life. And mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”  With that, walking to the stage with the roar of the crowd behind her was Svendsen as Weiss continued and pulled out a ring! “This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago. And to my sisters and brothers, I didn’t swipe it. Dad knows I have it, O.K.?”   Jan said, “yes”, and the Emmy audience was thrilled.

As to the night’s big winners; check out the winner’s list below to see how your favorite nominated actors and programs fared!

Julie Chen To Step Down From ‘The Talk’

As of Monday night, the only hosting gig that Julie Chen has resumed since her husband, Les Moonves was ousted as CBS Chairman is Big Brother on CBS.

Chen had yet to return to her seat at the table as the anchor of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, The Talk.

Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct with new allegations surfacing in the New Yorker as recent as just the other week.

Tonight, Page Six is reporting that Julie is walking away from The Talk and will resign.

CNN is also reporting that Chen has made the decision and it is effective immediately and that she will address her decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk

The competition in the daytime talk space, the ladies of The View, voiced that they think there is no way for Chen to return to the panel of The Talk, especially since the CBS series addresses the hot social topics of the day and the #MeToo movement which is so much of our culture these days,

The only statement Chen has made on the new allegations against Moonves, is that she is standing by him when she signed off on a recent episode of Big Brother saying:  “I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night.”

So, do you think Julie stepping down from The Talk is the right choice?  Is she in no-win situation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
