Shame on Y & R for letting such a great actor go. The fans love him and the ratings would have gone through the roof. Stop listening to the ones who didn’t like him and start listening to the fans. At the end of the day the fans keep you on the air.

Victor has no competition without Adam. Nick is weak and Jack has moved onto putting Billy in his place. The show is sleep inducing! The only two actresses that are worth watching on the show are Mariah and Dina! I am so sick of SICKtoria!

Right on, Nikki. Does Hunter King and Braeden ring a bell? Sad.

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

Yes Celia it rings a bell and the sad thing is they (Y & R) thought more of these two than the fans that made them number #1. Well thank goodness we don’t see one of them but the other one is still king of the castle. Watch out Billy your getting a bit too much time ole Vic may have to knock you down a peg or two.

Ahhh, Nikki…, what a mess!! It’s not about the fans, is it ?! When did that change? We used to have a voice. The problem is, my friend, the industry has become completely political. Politics, as a whole, is a spoiler….stinks to high-heaven. Furthermore, when an actor is given Infinite power to determine who stays and who goes, messes up my viscera. Billy….poor Billy. Jason is “kinda” growing on me, but he’s one of those typically, weak-male-types who thinks with his ‘pride and joy’. Most men, of a certain age, can smell a long-lashed “rat”.

Celia, I’ve been watching Y&R for almost 40 years, so please don’t insinuate I’m “not a fan”. Clearly the guy did something (or things) VERY bad and got himself fired. Even HE admits to being an ass. he f’d up. Hence the 6 month radio silence and the day of his firing saying he needed to “protect his family”….he knew of the storm that was coming. Despite his practical begging to be back on the show, they hired SOMEONE ELSE, and still have no interest in him. Where there is smoke, there is fire. He able to get any regular… Read more »

What absolute rubbish. You write this “stuff” like you know everything. All you have done is repeat the fiction that has been on the internet for three years an perpetuated by people like you. Say it enough and it becomes the truth…wrong. The “fans” do indeed want him back and the sheer number of people posting here prove how totally wrong and out of touch you are.

I hope it works out for Michael but I still wanted him back on Y&R as Adam Newman.

Harry

Me too, Sandy. While I am happy for Michael, I am sad to hear that his Adam is not going to come back and kick that sad-sack slacker Nicholas Newman and that petulant, sociopathic little brat Faith out of his house.

Thanks, Harry, for saying what I’ve been thinking about Miss Faith. What a little tyrant! She needs a reality check (really strict boarding school) ASAP. All these “soul talks” to make her life as comfy as possible. And Victor Newman will soon need to change his name to Victor Frankenstein!

His work since Y&R has been less than impressive. Hopefully he will do well. I had planned to check it out prior to him announcing he had work so if it’s good I will still be watching when he makes an appearance.

They let Rebecca Budig / Hayden and Robert Palmer Watkins /Dillon go. Why bring on someone else?
The show needs EP help not him. Bring Wendy Riche Back to GH

Guest

BTW, DOOL, OR B &B could Have hired him and chose not to…wonder why..

Celia

Patheic, right, Guest?
However, from yesterdsy’s little clip of Hayden writing Finn her final “funebrial” good-byes, I think Rebecca’s exit may not permanent….there’s an opening in the future?
I, also, don’t buy the miscarriage. I think it’s a way to truncate the relationship so that Finn won’t look for her. ?? Ease his pain; not realizing she made it worse??
Well, Finn got a double whammy!!

So glad to hear about his return to TV. I enjoyed his roles in the indie films SEARCH ENGINES and THE TRACK, which he played a truly evil street pimp. Isn’t it sad that the people who run Y&R didn’t listen to the fans who wanted him to return as Adam Newman? I don’t know of any actor who had such loyal fans and created a character that the audience adored watching and pleaded for his return on such a big level. With Y&R’s ratings in steep decline, Muhney’s return would have been a huge boost for the show. Big… Read more »

Your so right Veronica he is so missed by his fans. Planes we’re hired to fly over Y & R as well as I don’t know how many petitions have been signed to get him back. He is loved by his fans. Big loss for Y & R . I always thought the biggest problem with that soap is the actor’s have too much say in what they want. The sad thing is with all the soap’s we lost , if this one is cancelled way down the road it is strictly the older actors fault. They don’t care because… Read more »

Is it a recurring role or a one time guest appearance? I mean work is work, but I still rather see him back on Y&R — get Adam back and have him rescue poor Sharon from the boredom that is Scott.

I understand that it’s a one-time appearance. I’m sad about that. Y&R needs to bring him back. I’m sure that Eric (Victor) could handle it, though he hates Michael Muhney.

I am so happy Michael is back on TV. I hope he can do both Y&R and Good Doctor. We will have to wait and see. Seems to me his fans far outnumber the haters. He is an amazing actor and a good person. I wish him the best and hope he ends up doing what is best for him.

A couple minutes of screen time on one episode. He hardly “has a new gig”

The problem was it came to a point where some cast members didn’t want to work with MM. Fans can ask and beg all they want but when coworkers aren’t happy and willing to work with him it is another story.

And just where Jaromey is the charge, the accusation even about sexual harassment. If you did your homework..you would see it that whole thing was started by a deranged person..never was it an issue ..if so it would have been dealt with. CBS had to put up with lots of hatred about MMs firing..if they had that in their back pocked..LEGIT I mean..it would have came out. Michaels undoing was his attitude. ego and drive for perfectionism. It cause lots of rewrites, retakes…reshooting scenes…and his co workers and writers got sick of it..MM openly stated this.

I have a feeling and I hope I’m right. MM is doing both shows. He might not be a regular on The Good Doctor and I thought he once tweeted he would be seen in November sweeps for Y&R. Anyone think it could possible?.

Yeah, it’s possible, Sandy. …..up to Eric Braeden, I say. Many of us, including cast members, always rush to judgment….human nature, I guess…but, none (of us) was there. And, those who were may have jumped on the proverbial band wagon. I don’t believe for a minute that Eric did not have a hand in Michael’s termination— Sexual harassment accusations have become commonplace. It’s the “thing” to do when all else fails. By no means am I saying it does not happen;?however, those who lie make it that much harder for those when it truly does happen to them. Why did… Read more »

Because the punishment for workplace sexual harassment is termination of employment.
Look up the difference between sexual harassment and sexual assault.

@Jaromey.
Gosh, Jaromy, you ask me now? Well, if you must know, you, perhaps inadvertently, remarked that I am too stupid to know the difference between sexual harassment and sexual assault. That’s what I took it to mean….the implication.
As a High School teacher, I can confidently say that I do master the English language.
I found it offensive. No worries. It’s over.

No, ABC would block him being on CBS like NBC did with Justin Hartley. The fools at Y&R blew it big time. A Muhney return would have given them a big ratings’ boost.

It will be wonderful to have Michael back on my TV screen! I’ve missed him, and I think he could play just about anything. If “The Good Doctor” does for M.M. what “This Is Us” did for Justin Hartley, it’s a win-win for the actor as well as for his fans. If enough of we M.M. fans tune in, it will also be a big win for the network. That said, my wish is that all of those people who have been and still are affected by Harvey and will be affected by Irma will be safe elsewhere when the… Read more »

Comparing MM to Justin Hartley is like comparing apples to oranges. This is Us would be lost without Justin. He is a star player and MM has a ” guest spot” on an episode from what we read so far. HUGE Difference !

“”This is Us” would be lost without Justin.” Hardly!!! This wonderful show has an amazing ensemble cast, which includes Justin Harley. He is by no means THE “star” of the show. To say the show would be “lost” without him is ridiculous. In fact, his role is not even the most interesting.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
