If you didn’t love Max Ehrich already, you will love him even more. The former star of The Young and the Restless where he played Fenmore Baldwin, Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren’s (Tracey E. Bregman) son, and who has gone on to a primetime TV, film and music career, revealed over the weekend that he once considered suicide in an effort to help others.

Ehrich who will be seen in 2019 in Netflix’s upcoming movie, Walk, Ride, Rodeo, took to his Instagram and expressed: “Almost took my life when I was 15 because I was bullied so intensely for being an artist in a small town in New Jersey.  Your support means the world.  Your differences are your power. Stay authentic. Believe me when I say IT DOES GET BETTER. And if you need anything- dm me.  I will share more of my journey soon..  Suicide hotline: 877-614-7179.”

The talented actor will also be seen in the upcoming musical The Last Breakfast Club.

So, if you are being bullied and feel alone with no one to talk to, please reach out to the suicide hotline.

so sorry to hear this Jimh. Though this is an “anonymous” site we who have been on it for a few years have a sense of each other. No matter the drama, you have remained neutral and shared your humor and warmth equally. NO ONE on this earth has the right to judge others which is why I get so angry when I hear the judgmental comments about looks/age. We’re all just passing through… You’re funny, clever, sweet, friendly and open. And, let’s be blunt, a lot of people SUCK! LOL! They do! So, just ignore the garbage and concentrate… Read more »

Su is right…stay strong, Jimh and never allow your spirit to be broken by those who believe it’s their divine right to impose their will upon you…because it isn’t! Nobody else’s bad behavior should be dictating what you can think, feel or say in this life..that is up to each individual and not self-important types who consider themselves the last word on any and all subjects!

That’s absoutely awful, Jimh! I hope this perp stays incarcerated for a long time and that your family can have some well-deserved peace! I have always wondered about the psychological make-up of people with stalker-like mentalities…On one hand, they are bold and brazen in their refusal to accept that one wishes no further contact with them, but on the other, their insistence upon maintaining it—come hell or high water—-just goes to show that they have no sense of pride and realize their own inadequacies are what make them so undesireable in the first place! I guess it’s that knowledge which… Read more »

perhaps you can stick to supporting, Jimh. just a suggestion. Edit: this is in the wrong location; it belongs under Shay’s comment ending with “all subjects!” three boxes up. Ahhh…so funny. you do so amuse me.

Jimh, forgive me for not weighing in sooner (I just read this.) I am so sorry to hear about the sexual assaults, family issues, depression, and bullying you endured. But thankfully, you were able to survive it all and come out alive and with hope. Many people don’t understand how harmful bullying is or how pervasive a problem it is. It is a terrible trauma, the effects of which can last a lifetime. I am living proof of that. Yes, we have this thing in common… My bullying took place for 3 years in high school (compared to you, I… Read more »

I have never been bullied– so hard to relate.
But– I know people who have been bullied and it sticks to them.
Lesser people bully to make themselves feel better and some do it to display power.

Melania had best have a talk with hubby about ‘be best’
after all, he is an example of ‘how-to’ for our youth.
They read his twitter and are learning how to be a professional bully.. bwahaa!

LOL, su. “That” bully is never going to change. He thrives on it. Unfortunately, just like the bully in the school, if they get accolades, followers, it only reinforces the despicable behavior. As always…good vs evil.

You are a winner Max! Glad to see you are here and serving a purpose. I cannot fathom why we have to bully others because of their looks, the way they dress or the way they speak? BUT, even before Twitter is has happened, A LOT! And folks, how can you expect these kids to seek help when teachers are sleeping with students and priests are abusing young boys? Literally, God help us!

Shay

Amen to that last line, Timmmbo! I don’t who is worse these days, the male priests or the female teachers going after the young boys! Despite the #MeToo-ers who try to make this issue all about (predominantly older white) men in power abusing subordinate women, the truth is that sexual harassers come in all colors, ages, genders and orientations…although, quite frankly, some of the very worst are females of all stripes…particularly in recent years since they have been emboldened to proudly fly their cougar flags…I swear everyday there is a news article about some older woman taking advantage of a… Read more »

It is not easy to be so open about difficult times in our lives, but when we share we do help others. Mt. Ehrich may not be ever coming back to Y&R but I would like to see Michael and Lauren be a family with their son again.

I commend all who open up with their struggles with depression and bullying. It will only open up more discussion and more lives saved!

I just want to commend our fellow friends who have spoken up here on this important issue and thank those who have graciously offered words of support and encouragement to Jimh for his own experiences. This issue is important to me as well. I am encouraged and satisfied that anti-bullying programs have emerged in recent years. We need to do all we can; our youth need our help… No life should be lost because of bullying.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
