REPORT Alleges Fired Y&R Star Michael Muhney Has Been Ordered By Sony and CBS To Not Discuss Anything About The Show Or The Cast!

The story just won’t die, and now it mainly on the mainstream media who seems to keep posting new items and digging in to what went down behind-the-scenes with the fired star of The Young and the Restless, Michael Muhney (Adam Newman).

Today according to Radar Online, the outlet that ran the interview and comments with Muhney’s former co-star and on-screen father, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman),  Muhney has been “muzzled” and not allowed to speak out about allegation from Braeden, which according to this report “stunned” Muhney,  or the incidents revolving the groping of co-star’s Hunter King (Summer) breasts.

An insider reportedly told Radar, “It’s very frustrating that Eric made these remarks, because Michael has been ordered by Sony and CBS to not discuss anything about the show or cast.  It’s considered a personnel matter and both are prohibited by terms of their contracts from discussing it.  The only ones abiding by those orders are Michael and Hunter. Michael is trying to move on from the alleged groping incidents, but it’s hard to do when his former co-stars are trash talking him.”

This report does make some sense in that it would seem the appropriate course of action for Muhney and King would be not to discuss or talk about this situation publicly due to the contract and it should be handled behind the scenes.    What are your thoughts on the matter?  Are you willing to accept that neither Muhney or King will speak out at this point in time and so this all can hopefully die down?  Let us know!

As far as I am concerned, whatever happened is NONE OF OUR BUSINESS. I feel badly for both Michael and Hunter as their lives and possibly careers have been destroyed by innuendo, rumor, and trash-talking. Why are the “former” cast-mates allowed to publicly ridicule Michael and not be raked over the coals themselves? This whole incident has left a very bad taste in my mouth and I have lost respect for a few actors on Y&R, but not all of them. CBS/Sony should set the record straight for both Michael and Hunter’s sake, but it really is none of our… Read more »

As far as I know, Hunter King still has her job. Michael doesn’t. He is married with 3 kids, she isn’t. There is about 15 yrs difference in age and maturity between the two. Why the heck would he EVER put what he had on the line …..to grope her breasts??? Never!!!!! And as for the gag order from CBS placed on ALL f the actors on that show WTF was Eric Braeden on Twitter for 3 weeks straight running his mouth, calling people all kinds of nasty names for no valid reason (I was one of them) and talking… Read more »

I agree. M.M. Has to shut his mouth but what about Joshua Morrow/Elizabeth Hendrickson/Melody Thomas Scott/Doug Davidson/Greg Rikaart. So lets get this straight they can get on twitter and run off their mouth & without proof taking Hunter Kings side but Michael cannot talk. The end of the month is coming and as M.M. leaves his fans will be waving goodbye to Y&R. The first one that needs to go is Eric Braedan. M.M. is not the only one who did not get along with him. This old man is a bully. At the end of the month I urge… Read more »

Well said! It is NOT our business to know the details of his termination, even if we, as fans, feel it is unjust. Both actors have a RIGHT TO PRIVACY. As for Eric Braeden & the rest of the cast…..what happened to PROFESSIONALISM? They are professionals & needs to remember just that! How unprofessional to take to twitter & talk smack about something that is NOT their business. Perhaps Michael Muhney’s legal team could slap him/them with a Cease & Desist or sue for Slander & Defamation of Character.

I want to thank you for your comment and showing such class. I totally agree. So many Americans in 2014 think everyone and everything is their business or that they have to have an opinion or make a snap judgment about something or someone that doesn’t even involve them in the first place. The wisest response, if one doesn’t know the truth is no response at all.

Harlee

Ok, this makes sense of those two not commenting on the incident but both CBS & Sony should address the charges and than move on to get YR back on track. This has to be disconcerting for the cast & crew to focus.

If neither gets a handle on this in the long run could do damage to YR brand or Les could say enough and cancel YR on CBS, going over AngMcD’s head….

Why are his former cast mates allowed to say whatever they want, but he’s being silenced? He’s not even on the payroll anymore. It hardly seems fair. This isn’t going to go away when you have cast mates tweeting whatever they want. Sony/CBS should place the same order on THEM, too. Blowhard Braeden needs to be muzzled. He’s not helping.

But they just can’t help themselves, I guess. A Muhney fanatic attacks them, and instead of blocking or ignoring the person they respond. I guess they know there will be no consequences from Sony or the network if they do.

If they were aware of what was occurring on the set as they proclaim to, wouldn’t they have also known about the gag order. This sound more and more like some of the actors at Y&R have organized a vendetta against MM.

And when did that start?? Last night??? Eric Braeden has run his damn mouth for 3 weeks now and Greg Reickart has been no better. They had no right to throw Muhney under the bus, if indeed there was a gag order. Instead of sitting on Twitter for hours a day 7 days a week, perhaps Eric Braeden should be learning his lines, since he is the only actor on that show who comes to work unprepared. That is why Michael and him got into most of their fights. Hard to play your role against Braeden when the dialogue out… Read more »

I just read that Blowhard Braeden (love it) already tweeted saying no one is muzzled. Then you have KSJ huge Facebook post comparing what is going on to the LA Riots, and being in a war zone where the cast has to don flak jackets. This was after he stated he wanted… Read more »

Because he’s not muzzled – not by CBS/Sony/Y&R anyway. Maybe by his lawyer, or his wife.

Seriously. If tptb muzzled MM and HHK, they’d muzzle EVERYONE. Everyone else can’t shut up about it. No muzzle there.

If MM was muzzled by his contract, he wouldn’t have given that specious interview to Branco. If MM was muzzled by his contract, he’d be on Twitter lockdown. AGAIN.

The only thing shutting that man up is either an act of God, or a hefty retainer fee.

Susan…you are correct. Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman have NEVER gotten along in real life and they never will. Supposedly, the only one that EB has ever gotten along with is Melody Thomas Scott (aka Nikki). MTS is the only one who knows how to communicate with and deal with that man.

Have you noticed Eric fights with whomever he is fighting on the show? Not only has he fought with both actors playing old Smiling Jack, he’s fought with Sharon Case just about the time when Victor was livid with Sharon. Apparently he was none too happy with her complaining about with her character hooking up with her old, and I do mean old in both senses of the word, father-in-law. Moreover, he is not very welcoming to newbies such as Steve Burton. I think he also had issues With Eric Roberts. Hell, remember when Victor had that beautiful golden retriever?… Read more »

I would imagine that the remainder of the cast are worried about their jobs because their Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps is known for poor storylines, no originality, and closing down soaps. I’ve read that she has closed down four and Y&R is next. Maybe she was hired for that reason. With Michael Muhney being available to any type of acting job because he is so good, he will have an advantage because he’ll already be out there looking for much more worthwhile work and maybe even find a job and then the rest of the cast will be scrambling… Read more »

Most companies have policies preventing employees/contracted personnel from discussing private company business through media outlets. I’m not surprised that Hunter and Michael have been told to keep quiet, and I believe both are displaying much class for keeping their mouths shut. Their lawyers have undoubtedly told them to do so, and they have been wise to obey. However, I personally feel that Eric Braeden, Melody Thomas Scott, Eileen Davidson, Greg Rikaart, Kristoff St. John et al (those who have been “tweeting” vague yet still slightly libelous statements regarding the situation, and/or skewering their former employees in transparently ego-driven interviews) are… Read more »

Many of these stars haven’t gotten the hint that this was a private personnel matter (emphasis on the private!) and if CBS stated that they do not comment on rumours, they should follow suit and keep their mouths shut.

@ Kylie…Exactly! I used to be an avid fan of General Hospital way back in the day, when Doctor Hardy & Nurse Audrey were the headliners.

I seriously doubt it. Fans have wanted him off the show before and he was never removed. I don’t remember the circumstances, but, as you can see he is still there and he needs to retire because his inability to memorize his lines throws all of the actors off and likely makes a lot of them furious, not just Michael Muhney.

How was a *contract breached?* Gets your facts straight. A contract with Y&R (or any soap) does not mean job security! If there are justifying circumstances to terminate someone, they can do it. Heck they don’t even NEED a reason–they can end the contract early as long they give plenty of notice (like if they take a storyline in a different direction, decide to end it altogether, or opt to recast.

I believe If you have an opinion, & speak your mind on the Y&R set, cast members & management deem you as disruptive & destructive to the Soap Opera. That’s is why Y&R got rid of Victoria Rowell (Dru) too, because she spoke her mind! This is the befalling part to me about MM’s firing, if he was all of the above, why did they keep him around for so long? My eyes must be misleading me, because when all of the cast of Y&R was together, it looked like nothing but love & respect for each other even for… Read more »

I believe it is a two-fold “gag” order. One that might have been part of the contract (which extends past the length of employment) and one coming down from MM’s attorneys. Because at this point he HAS to have legal counsel … if the groping charge is real or false…to be in a position to legally defend himself either from those charges or from a suit he might be able to bring against Sony/CBS (even former castmates) for libel, possibly wrongful termination (should the charges be false but were the reason he was fired). At this point I wish they… Read more »

I don’t know if I would call it a boycott on my part, but I am already not watching Y&R on days when Michael and Billy are not featured. When they go, I go, simply because I am selfish. I like good stories and interesting characters and without the aforementioned 2, I don’t see that transpiring. How many times must we see Abby and her new boyfriend walk around the park trying to be interesting? I’d rather watch my dog lick himself and attempt to go where no man has gone before.

I’ve heard a lot of fans say that they are not going to watch Y&R and I want to say that we absolutely have to keep our word by not watching in defense and support of Michael Muhney. I am not being critical of you Susan, just saying that what we have been saying cannot be empty threats or CBS/Sony will not get the message. It’s highly likely they don’t care anyway but we definitely need to do our part and stop watching Y&R. It isn’t going to be worth wataching anyway unless Micchael Muhney returns.

I find it strange that CBS fired Michael without there even being an investigation or a police report filed. I mean would they fire her if he said that she touched him inn inappropriately? NO they would not have. They would have brushed it aside. I would think that Hunter would at least want some type of legal punishment if this truly happened. His career will forever be scarred by this. It’s really too bad!

Fred

I agree, if it truly happened HK has grounds for a lawsuit also. And both do if private company info were leaked by upper management to gossip rags. All we have are rumors started by a fan on a message board so cannot trust the source.

Seems to me the only ones talking are the ones Still on Y&R. Funny how they keep trash talking Michael. Sure seems they are going ALL out to try and save the show. But the show has just gotten SO bad that I can’t wait till Billy & Adam are gone, so I can switch back to GH. Maybe they need to be looking at getting some new & good writers that can write Better storylines

If the truth WAS published this would all go away , or die down… until it is.. fans wont stop. In the fan world its become cyber blood shed between fans and cast members. CBS should speak up about this, give the real facts considering they (AM) leaked the story to TMZ. So who really started all of this ?? JFP ..AM… Truth please???

If he does have a lawyer and he is not found guilty of what Hunter King has accused him of doing…then it could be possible CBS and SONY or JILL PHELPS might not have it their way. They are not perfect by any means.

It’s smart for MM & HK to keep their silence for now, but the rest of the cast (and anyone else related to the show) should keep their traps shut too. THEY are the ones inciting all the backlash and THEY are the ones who need to be muzzled.

I agree–I have no issue with the muzzle order put on MM and HK, but why not put the same order on the rest of cast? Specifically those suffering from diarrhea of the mouth?
And to clarify the second to the last sentence of this blog entry, it’s not that HK and MM won’t talk, it’s that they can’t talk.

Fred

Every day it looks more and more like Muhney was set up. Hope he wins with a big payout in a lawsuit. And who fires a father a week before Christmas , allows their employees to publicly berate him and gloat over his dismissal, and leaks private company information? Sounds like there is no one at the helm of this sinking ship. It’s an attention grabbing free for all.

What is worse is, when MM did that firing interview he spoke well of that Jill and the others in power, yet they allow all this, really sick, I don’t want to watch anything that comes from that studio.

I so agree. KSJ’s rant on his facebook is so long winded you have no idea what he was trying to say and frankly it sounded like the rant of a high or inebriated person. JFP’s is allowing these people to run willnilly over MM’s character ahead of an impending lawsuit. If these actors are really as honorable as they claim to be they would never have spoke up until the whold sordid mess was hashed out in court.

k.g.

Maybe JFP is asking some of the cast members to rag on MM, because her behind is in trouble too. JFP should have done something to stop a 2nd alleged incident from happening, and protected HK name from being leaked in the rumor!

JFP did absolutely NOTHING, so she is trying to protect herself now!

And the parade out the door continues! Just read Ignacio got a primetime role so looks like he’s leaving too!! MM was truly the tip of the iceberg and they can’t seem to stop the bleeding!! I’m not surprised they would muzzle him given all the rants he’s gone on. It is what it is.

I think it is unfair to silence some and others comment with no consequences…Eric Braeden should keep his thoughts to himself. I believe that Michael and Hunter are the only ones that have not commented any negativity about the show and the cast. This whole thing was handled very badly and as a result I will stop watching at the end of January…very sad after all these years..

Again, I suggest to all the Y&R cast who have spoken out on this sad issue, but especially to Eric Braeden: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

In Eric Braeden’s case, though, it’s years too late. His big mouth has been blathering his greatness for decades now.

I think Michael Muhney needs his lawyer to do his talking. I have been watching Y&R since 1973 and will be turning it of Jan. 30th with Michael’s departure. The way he has been this whole thing was handled by CBS,SONYand the cast members has been disgusting. It seems firing him isn’t enough, they are out to ruin him. We as fans aren’t about to let that happen and we will follow Michael Muhney wherever he chooses to go with his career. He is by far the most talented actor on television today!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
