Y&R Stars Greg Rikaart, Jessica Collins & Christel Khalil Come To The Defense & Show Support For Hunter King!

Cast members of Hunter King’s (Summer) of The Young and the Restless came to the defense and showed their support for the talented young actress via a series of tweets today which began when Brandon, whose handles is @DaysAddict, tweeted, “Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @hunterHaleyKing? Thanks!”

Once that tweet went out, several of King’s castmates jumped on board to show their support of the actress who has been at the receiving end of much negativity since TMZ reported that fired Y&R star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) fondled her breasts on two occasions, which was noted as one of the main reasons for his dismissal.

Jessica Collins (Avery) responded to the tweet saying “Yes Brandon. #Kindness RT @DaysAddict Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love & support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR

Greg Rikaart (Kevin) told it like it is by responding to this offensive tweet about Hunter:  “@TraceySproul: @HunterHaleyKing isn’t she the whore that got MM fired?” Be very careful, lady. That’s someone’s kid ur talking about.”   The Daytime Emmy winning actor later responded to this as well!  “@TraceySproul: if you can show me Greg, reports were made from the incidents, I will apologize.”  Greg responded with  “Not my business any more than it is yours.”

Christel Khalil (Lily) response to the original tweet in support of Hunter responded this way:   “@DaysAddict: Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR”   LOVE U HUNTER!

To say that it is not kind to name call people very offensively is an understatement, especially given the fact that those who were not involved in the real life drama do not know the details.   That being said, what do you think about the Y&R  actors show of support for Hunter King and the lashing she has taken on the Internet?   Weigh-in!

I think they have ALL been chomping at the bit to see Muhney fired so Im not sure about how genuine their support is. Only Muhney and King know what really happened, and just as I say Muhney is innocent until proven guilty, I think this girl should be left alone. The things Ive read about both are awful, but fans are being particularly vicious to Hunter. My gut tells me she is the scapegoat for CBS/SONY to fire Michael Muhney. Maybe one day we will know the truth,but I wont be surprised to hear a voice over in the… Read more »

I’m not giving anyone any support until I hear the truth about what happened but we won’t ever get the true story because the two actors cannot legally speak out. So no support from me for either of them. Just going to move on.

They are very stupid..
By doing this they have drawn more attention to Hunter King’

It would be best to keep her her out of the spotlight, and not open opening a door for web abuse on her..
They in fact made a target out of Hunter King’ more than than protecting her by letting it be still ..

Sometime do-gooders do more harm than good..

It should have left to silence..

For every action there is a reaction..

I believe the lashing being given to both actors is UNCALLED for by everyone … fellow cast members and media included. Everyone needs to remain classy and just support both Michael and Hunter. Heck, we don’t even really know if she was involved since the only tabloid rag that reported it was TMZ and who believes them? not me!!!! Stay strong Michael and Hunter!!!!!

Good for them! Elizabeth Hendrickson also showed support on twitter. I feel bad for Hunter, she is being attacked on twitter by Michael’s fans. Her name should have never been made public. Thiose crazy people need to back of this young girl. I’m glad the y&r cast and crew supporting her. The fans are supporting her too! Ignore the haters! She did the right thing!

I question the sanity of those people who are so vehemently and despicably “expressing” their feelings regarding the matter. Truly, I don’t think they’re stable.

As for the actors, I’d say good for them for jumping in…those “fans” need to be put in their place and on some sort of meds!

The name calling and ugliness on both sides has been horrific. And it’s all down to gossip. No truths have been revealed, no facts laid out officially on EITHER side of this ugly story. And yet one young actress and an actor have had their names thrown about, far too often in an ugly way.
This is what gossip does and it’s not pretty.

I agree. I support both Michael Muhney & Hunter King. I love them both. People who gossip need to find a hobby that doesn’t hurt innocent people. MM is INNOCENT until proven guilty. People judge way to fast without all of the facts & we don’t have the facts & won’t. This ruins lives & careers. Actor’s have the right to a private life as much as anyone. Please just support your favorite without judging those who aren’t.

I’m not on twitter but offer my support to HHK. This is a terrible situation for a young lady to be put in. No matter what really happened, she doesn’t deserve the hate that some soap fanatics have been throwing her way. Hang in there girl.

Best to the entire Y&R cast for a great 2014 and beyond!

I am very happy that Hunter’s castmates are coming to her defense, and I continue to find it very disturbing indeed that in 2014, we still continue to blame the victim when things such as this happen. No wonder it’s so rare that incidents like this are reported. I hope Hunter continues to stay strong as she moves through this very difficult time.

Me too! The response of female fans in particular is truly disturbing to me. Muheny’s groupies will do anything to protect him. It’s just astounding and ridiculous in 2014.

That’s great that there there for her and all BUT how about Michael Muhney? These are his co-stars too & since there seems to be no documented proof out right now, how do they support her when there not even sure SHES telling the truth?? Again, a young girl (and we have seen it many times in the media) “saying” something happened?? Could be.. I mean we all know she’s had it out for him in the past!

Um, maybe there were witnesses. Maybe these cast mates believe her and not him. Maybe they know something YOU don’t. You seem really naïve about harassment in the workplace. It is more often than not senior employees with higher status that harass younger, newer employees with lesser status. This fits the more traditional pattern of these kinds of incidents. They may not be standing by him because people of decency and dignity tend not to support harassers, no matter their status and level of talent. If you knew this happened to a young woman in your family, or a co-worker… Read more »

Good points, all of them. Moreover, as I keep saying you can be supportive of him by not bashing this young lady and wishing her well. You can be supportive of both actors at the same time, one does not negate the other. And if you cannot, then maybe just be quiet on the subject MM has requested as much on Twitter. No one is doing him any favors by bashing the young actress. Calling this young lady vile and horrible names is beyond the pale and when I see it coming from women of a certain age I feel… Read more »

“MM is a Man in his late 30s, a father & husband…”

Because there were witnesses, and those witnesses went to the higher ups before hunter did. And no, we don’t all know she had it in for him, this is the first I heard.
So, you believe that because he’s been there longer and is married that he should get away with harassment?
The guy comes off as a total jerk, I can absolutely see him doing this and thinking he’s too good to get canned.
He was warned once before, this isn’t the first time.

Precisely Nikki that tells us something about Muhney’s character. Why isnt anyone defending him? No way in hell if I worked on that set and I wasnt sure he was guilty would I just jump on HK’s band wagon. I would stay out of it until the truth came our or I had proof. But MM has only 2 supporters on that set…Melissa Claire Egan and Sharon Case. Set side sources have said that Muhney has been trouble on the set since he first came. He is not respected or loved in his own work environment. And his character is… Read more »

The comments these vicious followers of Michael Muhney are leaving for this innocent woman are beyond ludicrous.

Makes me embarrassed and disappointed in my fellow soap fans. They should all put themselves in her position or at least imagine what it would have been like if Michael Muhney had sexually harassed their 19-year-old daughter or niece.

OK, people…enough with the B.S. unless you were there and are a witness you have no right to judge or call either actor a name! None of you would like it if you were the victim or the accuser…if and when the whole truth is revealed then that is the only time to comment!!!

If they want to really support her then fire the two ladies who knew about this 6 months ago and did nothing. JFP & AM. And before anyone jumps on me start researching credible people who have knowledge like I did. The allegation was made and they ignored it. So if they really want to help this show heal then get rid of these two women!

I owe you an apology because when JFP first came to the show and you warned everyone all this type of stuff was going to happen, I didn’t believe you and I defended her. You were right last year when said MM should watch his back when Steve Burton came on the show — and sure enough that came to pass. So I don’t believe in hating anyone, yet like you, I do hate how she has managed the show and I truly hope sooner rather than later CBS will wake up and smell the coffee and replace her before… Read more »

I have been present when one of our fellow employees was let go for sexual harassment–and let me tell you they were not allowed to finish their job. They were escorted to head office and were not allowed back on the premises. His desk was packed up and delivered to his home address. These same actors that are standing behind some 20 years old–all for the sake of her age as an example -have no real proof that anything at all transpired between the 2 actors, and these same few had had run-ins with MM.

The fact that so many women are supporting an alleged sexual predator and are blaming the alleged victim is sickening. I wonder how supportive of this actor (MM) they would be if this was their teenage daughter, sister, cousin or friend? There must have been some charges that were substantiated in order for the legal team and the executives to approve the firing of MM. We are all aware of security cameras that are installed in almost every public place and business also this alleged “fondling” took place in a studio where taping is almost always happening. Since there were… Read more »

Thank you for a sensible and sensitive post. The abuse of the victim is horrendous, as she is being likened to a siren-predator and a home-wrecker, principally by female posters (at least on this site). No corporation the size of CBS will fire for this cause, without cause. Therefore, these attempts to blame and shame the young victim are despicable, but also deeply, deeply disturbing and say something about our culture — and the cult of celebrity — that couldn’t sadden me more. What year is this, anyway????

It’s a shame that something like this has happened! I don’t understand how TMZ got wind ! This should have been kept private. For any women to go through something like this is horrible. I give Hunter a lot of credit for standing up for herself & No One should be tweeting harsh comments ! Remember we’re here to set an example for the next generation, so let’s be kind to one another, life’s too short!

It is hardly uncommon for a more talented, powerful vet to harass a younger newcomer. VERY COMMON. I have seen it happen to many of my friends and even myself. We kept our mouths shut because we know we will be blamed and dragged through the mud. There is no way she welcomed this kind of attention. Greg, Jessica and Chrystal were not attacking Michael or even disclosing events. They were supporting a young woman from unfair and scurrilous attacks. MM is a top actor – there is NO way they fired him without MUCH thought, consideration and reason. He… Read more »

Agree100%. CBS may have been slow, but it would appear that the network was slowly deliberating the facts and its course of action. There had to be cause, for the actor to have been fired for THIS cause. The STAKES ARE SIMPLY too high for either inaction, or for wrongful termination. I don’t believe CBS would have wrongfully terminated given the claims and the stakes. It would seem that this young girl was victimized and had the COURAGE to stand up for herself. I applaud her courage and would want my niece and other female relatives to have enough self… Read more »

It also applies to others. Please be kind to everyone. #respect so even while being accused he still speaks up on behalf of accuser.

I thought the same. Why would they jump to MM defense? He’s no longer their colleague. Besides that, it seems he wasn’t chummy with many of the other actors either. I’m wondering what took them all so long to show their support! Were they all off twitter for the last 2 weeks or were they waiting for the studio to give them the green light to publicly support??

I completely believe and support Hunter. Muhney was a source of discord from day one. He was jealous of Eric Braeden, and reportedly he was disrespectful to both male and female cast mates. He was arrogance and pride written all over him. Doug Davidson and Melody Thomas are good enough sources for me but there are plenty of other sources who confirm that MM was a toxic presence on that set. It’s wonderful that he is now out of job and out of every one’s way. He is reaping what he has sewn. He brought this all on himself. He… Read more »

I’m NOT buying it no matter what you say.. It’s NOT the fact that he’s been there longer or older its that maybe before firing HIM, they should have considered HER too! Like other people have said, if it was the case… It’s grounds for IMMEDIATE release an that didn’t happen. Also read that Y&R suggested, if it was true to file charges with the POLICE – why haven’t we heard of that? And lets not forget MM DOES have his supporters and not just fans… Just because people voice there opinions doesn’t mean there sexual harassers. FYI – It’s… Read more »

Just stop. Your remarks are completely offensive. You are diminishing a scourge on the workplace. You literally have no idea what happens in situations like this. This young woman has incredible courage confronting a man much older with higher status who is trying to take advantage of her. I cannot believe you’re even writing this–I can only assume you have NEVER been in this position or you would squirm at your naivete.

You Stop.. Have u even been keeping up with EVERYTHING that’s going on!! Its more then this “rumor” & “accusation.” Until he’s arrested or charged, I will be on his side 100%. There is something VERY fishy happening. Did u read the arrogance of Eric Brayden, have u read that no police were called? Michael Muhney 100%. I do not believe any of the nonsense… the show is better with him – PERIOD. The whole thing has been handled poorly & he would have been done on the spot, not able to “finish up”. Not buying it.

Nikki has a point. I’m in law enforcement & the first time a complaint has been made regarding sexual harassment the accused is to be escorted from the property by police, there would have been a TRO even if he wasn’t arrested or detained. I love both HK & MM. I know that MM has an ego, not easy to get along with, self centered, but really think about it that’s why he made a great Adam Newman. We shouldn’t gossip, take sides in a he said/she said w/o proof. I still believe in INNOCENT until proven GUILTY. Not the… Read more »

I don’t believe anyone should be calling either one names, However I’m a big fan of MM and with the truly bad writing and truly bad acting from some of these characters my days are done as of MM’s departure. Oh and it would be nice if everyone would stop calling her a “kid” she is a 20 YEAR OLD WOMAN!!! and he has NO charges brought against him and therefore NOT BEEN CONVICTED OF ANYTHING!!!

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.

Photo: JPII

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.
