Michael Muhney Speaks Out And Denies Allegations Surrounding His Dismissal From Y&R!

Courtesy/CBSWatch

Breaking his silence with the press, recently the former Adam Newman of The Young and the Restless spoke to Australia’s TV Week Soap Extra magazine recently where he discussed the allegations surrounding his dismissal from the number one soap opera!

As many fans know, an incident with former co-star Hunter King (Summer) was cited as one of the reasons that Muhney was fired from the show.  As to why Michael didn’t just come forward and say the allegations were not true right away, the popular actor related to TV Week:  “I have never spoken out.  I wanted a long time to go by, because I didn’t want to be this person who was desperately screaming:  “I didn’t do it!”.  The rumour was untrue.   First of all, there is no one anywhere, of any official capacity, who ever made any of those allegations.  If there were, I would be the first person to come out and say,’ Hey, now, I’ve got to take you to court because what you’ve just said is lies and I have to sue you for libel and slander.”’ 

Muhney also commented on the grind of being on a daytime soap at one point was wearing on him, and his frustration even with himself.  He revealed he went to talk to Y&R EP Jill Farren Phelps on the situation:  “I remember sitting down in the final ten months of my tenure with the executive producer and saying:  ”hings have to change. You guys are going to have to fire me or I’m going to have to quit. I told them that several times.”
As to if he had any suspicions that people were supposedly out to smear his name, Muhney told TV Week:  “I didn’t have suspicions- I was told.  A producer said to me:  ‘When your star shines very bright, you have a huge target on your back.  So be careful.”

As Judge Judy said, don’t pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining. Now he expects us to believe that he WANTED to leave because he was “overworked”. If a grown man can’t handle the extreme pressure of working on a soap opera then he needs to grow a pair.

Some people like to think the worse of people because it’s more interesting. If you look at Sharon Case’s video she made for him on Twitter it speaks volume’s. He liked to joke around, he liked to tease, make fun of etc. Unfortunately some of the people he teased are sour-pusses and complained like H.K., M.T.S., D.D., and the actor who plays Neil Winters. Since Michael is gone the soap is all about these creeps. Summer who is in every show every day, Nikki drinking again, Victor stirring up his trouble again, Paul and his new son, and Neil’s blind.

He put up with Eric Braeden’s ridiculous ego and unprofessional behavior for a very long time. He got fed up with it. I don’t blame him one bit. He knew the only way for Braeden to leave was to go out in a box. Why stick around for that? He was smart to know it was time to get off of Phelps’ crappy show.

It was plainly obvious that JFP was doing everything she could do to get Muheny to quit. They overworked him the last six months he was on the show. I can’t imagine what hell he put up with from her and Eric Braeden. Two horrible creeps.

IMHO he sounds a bit delusional (as many actors are haha). A producer told him “When your star shines very bright, you have a huge target on your back. So be careful” I think the producer meant “don’t step on peoples’ toes, don’t steal the spotlight etc.” whereas MM interprets it as a prophetic prediction of his downfall. Hey, actors love drama I guess. Admittedly I am not a YR watcher, just a soap fan, so I don’t know his work or much about him – which is to say I could be totally wrong.

Susie

Nick you are totally wrong and you would know if you wat he’d YR. MM had more time on screen than any other actor and that in itself makes a lot of people jealous especially the old timers. He did his job and he did it well..he is a perfectionist, memorizing every line I. Every scene. He has a huge fan base because we all grew to love him playing the part of Adam Newman, not a particulary “nice guy” ..but he played it so well he won us over and he became our beloved Adam. The rumors were false… Read more »

The thing is that when one shines bright, one is actually good for the show. How could he ever step on anybody’s toe , when he was given the most awkward parts, and again he performed beautifully, so well that he got us really involved emotionally. So I think nothing can be said about Michael M. His talent simply speaks for him . I heard the show has become sheer boredom .The other thing is not only about him being fired , it is the way he was treated.It left the cast and the producers with a terrible reputation of… Read more »

I agree with Susie 100%. As I said I cannot judge…none of us is a fly on the wall. All I can see is what is presented to me. MM delivered…never faltered. He is one of the BEST actors that ever graced this business…always prepared and believable. That is the main ingredient at acting….to make everything that passes an actor’s lips credible and accepted by the audience as such. We must applaud him for that. Someone else posted that MM has an ego? We all have an ego. It is part of the human psyche….it is a trait that is… Read more »

I as an American need to see the proof he did it..

So, now Mama and KH are either seers , or perhaps they sit on the bench. I am sorry ladies/gentlemen, I have gone into quite a litany , with no avail, about how unfair it is to accuse without the facts. My point? We do not know the facts…everything is hearsay.
This whole imbroglio and MM accusers is like a scene straight from TALE OF TWO CITIES.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Oh, please, people. The naysayers and those pointing fingers have all the facts, right? How can anyone come out and say, he did it because of how he/she recounts a situation?
At the risk of stepping on your toes, Mama and KH, your way of thinking in this case, is fallacious.
As I previously stated, I liken the response of some viewers to a scene from Dickens’s TALE OF TWO CITIES….why don’t we just behead someone without just cause!!!! Symbolically speaking, isn’t that kind of archaic? Or better yet, let’s bring lynching back.

I read his remarks over again what he is saying is no one of any importance made a full blown allegation. To sue these rags like TMZ you have to have deep pockets final anaylisis he is working again and his family believes him that’s all that matters. My understanding was he really did not like soap opera work as well as prime time and movies.

Exactly, Jim. There is still so much which is not being said and I am afraid Michael’s words do not solve the mystery at all.
So I am going to reserve judgment because I simply do not know. I wasn’t there.
But I will say I dearly miss Michael as Adam. He was a study of complexity and fascinating to watch. He’s a very gifted actor.

MM fans (like myself) are true blue they will comment until the show goes off air or he comes back. It isn’t even a matter of “did he or didn’t he ” anymore It has to do with HK playing the role of the victim, cast members taking sides and we the fans lose our favorite actor.( For argument sake lets say she’s right don’t you think she should get over it?

I always knew it was all BS … CBC/Sony would have immediately fired him.. They would have to take immediate action legally to avoid legal liability for allowing a sex hasser to be on set, especially with the person he was alleged to harass.. That would never happen, ever.. CBS/Sony would have never been allowed to keep MM on set another second, the liabilities would be great…. MM stayed on until his contract was up.. That rumor was found to have been started by a soap fan on whatever blog/board and I believe some legal action was brought against her..… Read more »

We don’t know anything except his side. Also sexual harassment is handled by HR in most companies without lawyers. Because they are trained to do so.

As for action all they had to do was make sure HK and MM were not on the lot at the same time for the duration of his tenure. Which wasn’t that long.

Sorry; I don’t watch the show but I did follow the story about him. I don’t believe him either. First, he’s talking to an Australian magazine? What about an American one? Second, if he wanted to quit…he should have. Third…he sounded pompous. And fourth…lawsuit or not I don’t think anyone would keep silent when accused of harassment.

And before his defenders attack…I didn’t say I know. I said it’s my opinion.

I believe there was an incident of some sort because lets be honest, Hollywood back lots are hot bed for a lot innocent and not so innocent groping. MM was fired for some reason, but when the outrage got so intense, someone high up used this incident that would have otherwise been sweep under the carpet to basically turn public opinion against MM and paint the show as just doing what it had to do.

I’m sorry, but every actor who gropes a co-worker (unwelcome) SHOULD be fired. Then they would get the idea that it’s unacceptable and there would be plenty of actors in Hollywood that behave in a mature respectable manner towards their co-workers. Things do not become ok just because a lot of people do it. I don’t really know anything about the situation (nor does anyone except the people involved).

Regardless of what went on behind the scenes, no one has the right to jump on the band-wagon, especially if it is fiction or the facts are distorted and hazy.

@CeeCee– not sure if you were directing your comment to me or to someone else, but just for future reference, both Italy and France recognize the presumption of innocence principle — In Italy the 2nd paragraph of Article 27 in their Constitution states–“innocence is to be presumed and no one is to be held guilty of a charge unless his or her guilt has been established in court.

But, there is a big difference between speculation and outright accusing, as some of the posters do. I certainly will say that it is neither the American way nor is there justification in what is said, one way or the other. It is not fair…NO ONE KNOWS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED EXCEPT FOR MM AND HK.

Not only did Hunter King NOT dispel the rumors, NO ONE said they were false (until now, MM says they are false).

I know he has his die-hard supporters but where there is smoke there’s fire. JMO.

Very well Said Ruby S. The show has gone to hell. I watch it every so often, just out of curiosity to see who the new Adam is going to be, and how he handles the character. There will NEVER be another “Adam” like Michael Muhney. He made the character his own. I’m happy that he has moved on, because he is much more than a “Soap” actor. Too talented for Soaps. He has the talent to be in a leading role in movies or Prime Time TV. Too many jealous people and back stabbers on Y & R.

Totally agree with you Ruby. Michael Muhney is too talented to be wasted on that soap! He belongs in primetime or in movies where he was before he joined Y&R which has now turned into crap. I read all of the comments and complaints and have seen the ratings dive, especially in the 18-49 age group.

General Hospital is making great strides and just may overtake Y&R in the ratings. Maura West, Emme Rylan and Michelle Stafford are there (previous Y&R actors) and Billy Miller makes his debut on October 13th. Go General Hospital!!!!

Totally agree Ruby. The nasty soap media should be ashamed of themselves for exploiting this salacious false smear. They reveled in it as the initial firestorm raged. They fueled the fires as well. They’ve been exposed for their culpability in this whole affair. Where’s the link for the entire interview? I salute Michael Muhney’s class under fire. He never lashed out at a single person during this whole mess. Can’t say the same for his backstabbing former castmates, like Braeden, Thomas-Scott, Davidson, Rikaart, St. John, Morrow, and the rest of those creeps.

Michael Muhney was in Australia for two weeks representing VERONICA MARS at OzComicCon, along with two of his co-stars, Jason Dhoring and Percy Daggs III. It was a big deal for Brisbane and Sydney and lots of stars were there representing shows. Actors were doing panels, having dinners with fans, posing with fans and granting interviews.

Does that help? Australians are crazy for VERONICA MARS. Michael was great in that prime time series which now has a cult-like following.

I agree Vickie– MM was completely shocked when he was fired, like it came out of the blue–if he had asked them to fire him because he couldn’t handle the work load why would he be surprise when they did? This story makes no sense. The only thing that does is not suing because no one official ever said anything to sue– but the rest of it does sound a bit off.

I do! This JFP way of conducting business. She overworked Beverly McKinsey (Alexandria) on GL who told her the same thing and JFP ignored her. Guess what, she quit with no notice due to a loop hole in her contract. MM is great and worked with other not so great spoiled actors. The show is terrible, worse than I could ever have imagined.

If Michael Fairman had published more of the interview, you would understand this comment that was taken out of context. Michael stated that he liked the corporate part of Y&R, regular salary, helped him and Jaime to be able to afford their third child but he did state that he was always on set, always memorizing, no time off. Personally, I feel that the “Delia Dies” story line exhausted and burned Michael out.

Yes definitely. He carried that show alone on his shoulders, for months at a time. He put every ounce of emotion and feeling that he could draw upon, into each and every scene, as did Billy Miller. They were the backbone of that show for a very long time. I miss them both very much.

The australian magazine published a honest interview with mm whilst he was in australia for comic con 2014. His mother was implying to the us gossip mags that took most of his words out of context. Anyone that has had the pleasure of meeting mm would know that the groping matter was bs. I attended his veronica mars panels in Brisbane. He is humble, professional and a class act. I wish michael fairman could publish the two page interview for his us fans to see.

EVEN his mother defended him?
The qualifier “even” would be necessary if you replaced mother with, say….Eric Braeden but doesn’t quite make sense prefacing mother.
Al Capone’s mother defended her little baby too–that’s what mothers do.
And listen, I like Michael Muhney and I hope the allegations are not true. No one can say with absolution that he is guilty or innocent or innocent of sexual harrassment charges.

Y&R considered rehiring Muhney a month or two ago and that alone tells me the message board rumors were always untrue.

Also, assuming MM is innocent and didn’t want to stir the pot when he was dismissed, why do it now — when you’ve already been let go and are supposedly moving on?

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.
