The Young and the Restless: What Do You Think Of Hands Newman?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

On Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, Hands Newman (as many a Y&R fan has now dubbed the visual) made a few more appearances as Billy (Burgess Jenkins) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) made out only to be interrupted by Hands henchmen who got into the penthouse … and then went to work inside Connor’s nursery to do Hands bidding!

Later “the hands” that we are led to believe is really the MIA Adam Newman, touches the screen as he watches his wife Chelsea … or as we have often seen, clenching his fist when he sees her with arch-enemy Billy!

While viewers await who will be the next actor that will portray Adam (last played by Michael Muhney) and who the hands will eventually be attached to …  “the hands” seems to be the way that Y&R is keeping the character in story for now.

So what do you think of the plot device of having Adam be in the story watching his wife and her sexcapades with Billy from afar?  Is it stalker-esque?  Creepy?  Or, do you think it’s justifiable?   Weigh-in!

Enough of those angry hands already. it’s crazy. i never understood why they had Adam all of a sudden like Chelsea when he was so in love with Sharon. The entire story is ridiculous

My oppion is the Billy who searched for his daughters killer was the best billy I’ve seen on the show The recast suck bad so the recast of Adam is going to be just is bad mm was so good at playing Adam I almost cried when he was making that confession tape ….it just makes. Me so angry that that hunter chick would lie about him groping her

I agree about that Hunter chick. No I don’t really know the truth but come on why ruin your career just to grope a feel. MM had it all: Looks and talent.
The Hands are a poor substitute for MM.

There’s no legal remedy available on this matter. If there was one, it would have been pursued. The fact is Eric Braeden wanted him gone, so he’s gone. End of story. Victor wins, the audience loses.

Eric Braeden hated Michael Muhney. It’s no secret. Braeden was threatened by Muhney because he actually became Victor 2.0 to the fans and they loved him. Jealousy makes people do bad things. Shame on Braeden, he’s had his run. If Y&R was to have a future, it would have been Muhney’s run. How sad for us fans.

I’ve never understood why everyone hates Chelsea so much. I’ve always liked her and, for me, she has chemistry with every guy they’ve thrown her with on that show.
I don’t want Adam back with Sharon because all the shit he did to her was unforgivable. I’d never forgive a man who took my baby away from me.

Im sorry but Adam is a stalker now. He can’t call his wife in secrete if he is supposed to love her. He never loved her anyway. They have zero chemistry . Chelsea had more chemistry with Dylan. Im sure Chelsea will be pregnant by the time Adam comes back with Billty kid

The character continues to be marginalized by these dreadful writers and Phleps. It’s disgraceful to see how they’ve trashed Adam. I don’t understand why they’d bring him back now. Phelps made him a child killer and twisted stalker. The character is ruined. Phelps should be fired.

“Hands down,” @Michael, that was the meanest post on here!

And @Meg, I get what you’re saying. I, too, wish Michael Muhney were back as Adam Newman, and yes, having nuBilly together with Chels IS gross.

As much as Billy Abbott professed to love Vicki, he’d never jump that quickly into either the bed or the relationship with Chelsea … he wouldn’t trust her enough to do so after Victor hired her to seduce him away from Victoria in the first place!

It’s stupid lol The Y&R peoples are stalling.. They fear recasting Adam that MM fans reactions will not be welcoming.. They believe the longer time goes the by the better chance MM fans will have calmed down and will accept the new adam; won’t work.. Adam can not be replaced… It would be best just to let the character RIP .. So far there have been 2 awful Billy’s (not replaceable) and with Adam it will be worse.. They can stall by showing a hand with hopes all will be accepted after this long amount of time.. I doubt they… Read more »

Its been way too long for this “hands” story. YR needs to resign Michael Muhney, the only actor that can play Adam Newman. They’ve had so man misses with the new and new/new Billy, new Kelly, soon-to-be-new Phyllis – way too many cast changes. We need some consistency and some good storylines on this show. Maybe its time to make a change at the top! Please bring YR back to the show we all loved. Right now it is a mere shell of its great self.

The hands are a completely annoying plot device. It would be one thing if a new Adam were in place but months and months is ridiculous. Bring him home to his family.

The only redeeming quality is that the last 2 appearances have made it very clear that Chelsea is as big a priority as Connor and it hopefully we’ll start to see more than just lurking.

I agree, I LOVE Chelsea. And she is way better than whichever faux-Billy they put on the screen than Victoria is. Once they changed the actor playing Billy, I stopped rooting for Villy. The chemistry wasn’t there! I think the Kelly character is a good addition, but I do NOT like Cady McClain playing her. And I have always LOVED Cady, just not in this role. I miss Cynthia Watros! Lily and Cane? Ugh! She comes on the screen and I FF.

Middle-aged Bill (Billy) Abbott is a creep. He claims he “loves” Victoria? Hah! If Billy truly loved Victoria, he would NEVER sleep with Chelsea after the fallout that happened after he slept with Kelly. Maybe JFP’s soap playbook says the quickest way to get the audience to accept someone new in a role is to ruin the character, that way the fans won’t care who plays the part! Oh well, Victoria and Stitch are looking better together all the time, and that’s probably a part of the plan too. BTW Those hands better not belong to Spinelli! No, Chamdanelli, please!

Don’t be surprised if MM shows up — “Surprise!” — on camera soon. It’s the only way I see for JFP to pull her ash out of the fire! Sadly if MM does show up, JFP may be cemented in at Y&R for a long, long time. Not that she’s going anywhere anytime soon. If JFP reached a deal with MM, keeping it top secret could be huge for a reveal, wowing fans and bringing the ratings. I’m not a huge MM fan, but what a coup that would be for JFP.

I can’t see Michael Muhney ever wanting to work on Y&R again. Phelps and Braeden trashed him professionally and personally. They have shown their true selves and it ain’t pretty.

News Flash you will be seeing a lot more of “The Claw” CBS says it will be 3 to 6 months before casting it has also been rumored that they have hired an outside firm to cast Adam. So my question to the folks over at Y&R is: How is that mud slinging all out attack on one actor working out for you?

The character Adam should not be recast..
Y&R has moved on from all Adam anything (hand not included) and Y&R would do 100% better if they did not recast Adam and simply let the character RIP..
Whomever will play Adam best have a very thick armour and Y&R will be opening a can of trouble by recasting Adam..

Both Billy’s have been horrible .. they should learn from that, Adam will be worse..

I agree. Any recast of Michael Muhney will be a disaster that will make the recasts of Billy Miller a blip. The backlash against Y&R and JFP is in concrete now. It’s not going away. Those cast members that attacked him have ruptured their relationship with a significant group of fans. I can’t see MM ever going back to Y&R, even though he loved playing Adam Newman. He made Adam the force that the character became. Too bad for Y&R and its fans.

But the thing is: Billy Abbott was ALWAYS younger than Victoria. He was a part of the teen set when Vickie was grown and married, so he has been aged via the nuBilly (BJ). Most long-time viewers know that Billy was much younger than Victoria; I’m not sure how long you’ve been watching. BTW I never felt David Tom looked too young to be with Victoria. IMO AH is aging very gracefully. I may be in the minority, but I also thought he and Victoria looked fine together. It is so odd seeing scenes with Jack and Billy now because… Read more »

When Billy Abbott was born in 1993 Victoria was losing her baby with Cole Howard. Victoria was married to Ryan, Cole, Brad & JT. She was also engaged at one time to Neil.

Victoria was born in the early 80’s and Billy was born in the early/mid-90’s. It was a creepy pairing anyway, because we longtime viewers know that the original adult version of Billy and the original adult version of Victoria are real-life siblings.

Maybe he is over Sharon for good, as it seems Nick/Sharon is the endgame now. I would like to see Adam on a path of redemption as opposed to revenge.

For a hot minute there, I thought I was the ONLY one who felt that way! I am disgusted that the writers are taking Bill(y) Abbott Senior in this direction. I was rooting for Billy to get Victoria back, eventually, but not anymore. They ruined Villy for me, and I wasn’t even a huge fan of the couple. But Billy sleeping with Chelsea after what went down with him and Adam, claiming he still loves Victoria and wants her back. Gag me!

I’m reading comments that a recast won’t be accepted. But, from what I understand, the die-hard MM fans quit watching the show 6 months ago. So, maybe those that are still watching will be willing to give a recast a chance.

It sounds like MM is getting back to work and I’m happy for him…but I’m also willing to given another actor, who had nothing to do with MM’s departure, a fair shot to play to the role of Adam.

The adam character should not be recat..
He is no longer needed.. Y&R and cast have moved on with no Adam on screen and Adam should be let to RIP..

attempting to recast Adam will be a disaster, also..

I think many fans, not just MM fans, are wary of recasts because recent recasts have been so BAD. Kelly recast is so far OFF, she could really be Paul’s sister Patti with a new identity! I know I am afraid to see who will replace Hands. After seeing the aging of Billy Abbott (who was a teen, just like JT was, when Victoria was a married woman), I am afraid JFP will think this is a great time for Eric Braeden to take on a dual role as Victor Newman and his son (to be forever known as Adam… Read more »

The new Kelly is now Dixie from AMC, no change at all ..
Same acting/portrayal of Dixie, exactly …
First Kelly was awesome!!!
Y&R should just let some characters go and not recast them it is not working well..
Billy Abbott’s recasting, twice, proves some can not be recast..
I have no idea who this Billy is but he’s nowhere near being Billy Abbott..

Y&R is empty, simply empty of all it once was..

I for one would prefer they take their sweet time and find a recast that will work in the role. I know, I know, there are many that say only MM can play the role, but considering he too was a recast, it isn’t out of the realm of possibility to find a suitable actor. But if the person they pick bombs and they have to recast again– that might be the last nail in the coffin for this show. So take your time, show Hands every now and there just to remind viewers Adam is still out there– it… Read more »

But look how Michael Muhney, even though he was a recast, took that part and made it his own. Muhney IS Adam Newman, as far as most fans are concerned. He took a character that was vilified and reviled and turned him around, made him a beloved character, one that, by the time we found out he was fired, was so loved that people flew planes with banners declaring the fan-love for him to CBS, and standing behind him during all the backlash of a never-supported-or-proved allegation against him. He showed that he could even take poor writing and make… Read more »

Michael Muhney’s wrapped his film, but I’d be totally shocked to see him on Y&R ever again. His feud with Eric Braeden is now legendary. I can’t imagine them sharing the same scenes together ever again after Braeden stabbed him in the back with that character assassination online interview. Braeden is true low life.

Miller wanted to go outside work to help improve his acting skills, but he stated in several interviews, including one with SOD and CBS-SID, that he never wanted to leave Y&R, because it was the best job he’d ever had, but TPTB wouldn’t negotiate him having outs to do other jobs. What’s really funny is that, if you check, numerous others from the show DO have outs, including Ignacio Serracchio, Max Ehrich, Jessica Collins and Steve Burton to name a few off the top of my head. Serracchio has been on Bones most of the season and is now on… Read more »

Maybe MM is working on the films his father-in-law, Larry Garrison, is working on. Larry Garrison is in development on a film and book entitled “Son of the Oklahoma Bomber,” dealing with Josh Nichols father’s actions in the Oklahoma Bombing.” Larry is also developing a feature film on General Thomas P. Stafford, who was the commander of the Moon landing, and is a true American hero. If Michael Muhney could work on either of these, that would be amazing. His father-in-law write a LOT of books! Very interesting man.

MM said on Twitter, he was going to NY to take meeting/s…then doing a movie.
Maybe he is interviewing in the east coast for other work…

Agree the new Billy III or whatever, is not good.

Muhney has wrapped his movie and I’d expect he’ll announce his future plans when they are set. I’d love to see him on a cable drama or another film.

Hey mellow Yellow!
Just miss Y&R and his enormous presence. I watch a few minutes here & there, but its not the same.
Would love also to see him in cable or film, preferably on a regular basis!
Thanks for the update!

There’s a post up-thread about St. John. He’s already said no to playing Adam Newman or returning to daytime TV. Not going to happen.

Cameron Mathison will be the new Adam Newman, trust me it will happen. I love Cameron, he is hot hot hot, and a terrific actor.

Mathison has no interest in going back to soaps. He’s looking at other gigs. Not going to happen.

Mathison is a horrible actor. His performances on AMC were a joke. He’d be a total disaster as Adam Newman. Mathison isn’t in Michael Muhney’s league as an actor.

If any of the these actors people have mentioned were available and wanted to do it and were deemed right for the part I suspect the role would have been cast by now. The fact they said Adam would return in six months after firing MM and Adam hasn’t materialized means they must be having a harder time casting Adam the role then they thought. They really only have one shot at this– if they don’t find someone epic everyone involved with getting rid of MM job is on the line. There is no room for error and that puts… Read more »

Phelp’s decision to fire Michael Muhney has haunted this show ever since news broke last December. Y&R has suffered on so many levels that it will never really be free of this whole debacle. Of course, Phelps was behind it all as usual, but I think this one blew up in her face. She has to be the most hated woman in all of soaps now. People only defend her out of fear or ignorance. She’s wrecked Y&R. It’s just terrible now. The whole hands situation is laughable. They should have left Adam Newman dead. Once again, Phelps’ arrogance will… Read more »

We all know, “hands down,” that this hands bit is a ploy by TPTB to keep the idea of Adam alive in the minds of viewers, yet try to prepare them for the inevitable fact that, when he finally does show his face, it won’t be Michael Muhney (unless something miraculous happens in the meantime). Considering how quickly the show is getting rid of or changing the storylines of popular male characters so only Steve Burton’s Dylan is a “heroic” figure, you’d think the show was full of jerks and creeps. I don’t think the writers and TPTB seem to… Read more »

Sadly, neither Billy Miller or Michael Muhney will return to Y&R as long as Jill Farren Phelps is Executive Producer of the show. She screwed Billy Miller in his contract negotiations, then fired Michael Muhney and smeared his name with the help of Angelica McDaniel & TMZ. This woman would run down her mother to keep power and make her boy-toy Steve Farren Burton the “star of Y&R”. She has no ethics. Anyone associated with Phelps is either a FOJ or her victim.

I’ve been reading that Billy Miller is starting on GH soon & that Michael Muhney just finished a movie and is in negotiations for some other roles. I seriously doubt either of them ever appear on Y&R again. Maybe if Phelps is gone, they might, but it would surprise me.

Blah, it just reminds me of the villain in Inspector Gadget that is always stroking his cat. Too bad we can’t resurrect Patty’s stuffed “Miss Kitty”. Gag..

Is that really Adumb, who is spying on Chelsea, aka, the Human Incubator, the same Adumb who was killed in an explosion? Of course it is because as we all know, in Genoa City, no one who dies really actually dies. This show not only defies the laws of science and physics, but flies in the face of reality and common sense. Man! It is so believable! I’m still waiting for Ducilla to appear at Neil’s door and announce, “Honey? I’m home.” Let’s see how Hillary deals with THAT!!

Of course the character wasn’t portrayed as being dumb before now, but that was when the show was scripted by competent writers. These twits will write anything now and that’s why these characters make now sense whatsoever now. The show is a mess and Hands Newman is just another example of the insanity that’s called Y&R.

Totally agree. These horrible writers have taken Y&R down so far that it has become unwatchable. Long time viewers can’t believe how bad the show is now. It’s obvious that Phelps has shoved her boy-toy Steve Farren Burton and pet Hunter “The Pouter” King front and center. They cannot carry this show….except down the toilet.

I “used” to be a loyal viewer, from many, many years ago. How many? I won’t tell but let’s just say, back when it was actually watchable, something it hasn’t been in ages. I can’t believe how it has degenerated into this hot mess of stupidity that it is now! After taking a break from it for a couple of months, I go back and it’s not only as insultingly bad as before, but WORSE. So that’s it for me. I’m tired of watching a show that causes me to swear at the TV every two minutes, and lose IQ… Read more »

An idea: I think that Hands Newman should transform (or whatever) into a SERIAL KILLER and O-F-F the following: Abby, Cane, Christine, Devon, Dylan, Hilary, Lily, Summer, Tyler and Victor. Everyone else can live/survive.

All My Children

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
