Y&R’s Eric Braeden Addresses Comments About His ‘Condition’ When He Is Just Playing Victor’s Medical Injuries

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Don’t confuse real-life with soap characters! How many times have the fans been told that over the years.  Here is another prime example from the one and only Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) of The Young and the Restless!

Last week, Braeden was receiving tweets and comments about his health ‘condition’ because of how he was perceived to be moving slowly, and such, on-air during his scenes.  But as anyone who watches Y&R knows, Victor fell down a flight of stairs earlier this year after a huge brawl with J.T. (Thad Luckinbill).  That led the moustache to land in a coma.  Now several months later, Victor is still feeling the after effects of the coma and the injuries sustained in the fall.

To stop the spread of more speculation and rumors on his health, the Daytime Emmy-winning icon took to Twitter and addressed the situation head on, clarifying: “I have heard some comments about my ‘condition’. I’m an actor and when I’m in a storyline involving a fist fight and a tumble down the stairs and a subsequent coma, I’m going to play the consequences of that to the best of my ability. But I, Eric Braeden, am full of p**s and vinegar!”

So case solved! Eric is doing great, while Victor is recovering, but it remains to be seen what will happen to Victor for taking Christian away from his son, Nick (Joshua Morrow).

Let us know what you thought of Eric’s tweet via the comment section below.

Of course, Eric was/is acting the condition. And anyone that can not see that needs mental health care. It’s hard for me to acknowledge that some soap fans do not and can not separate soap fantasy from actual life, but some do struggle with that. I have read comments/posts throughout All the many boards that some soap fans are way too involved and bring soaps into their real lives, not kidding. They become depressed over this and that and anger- whoa some become overly angry over the fiction taking it personally as if they are actually involved in it.. So-… Read more »

After the altercation Victor had with JT – it would take some time for him to fully recover.
He did have a stroke too which impaired his speech and cognitive abilities.
The fact that Victor is still demonstrating some impairment, is a credit to Mr. Braeden’s acting abilities,Bravo !

Absolutely…..I admire Eric so much!! Best actor on soaps, as far as I’m concerned.
Who is this adversary? JT? Ian Ward? Jack is too preoccupied; obsessed with his progenitor, whomever that turns out to be.

I, for one, is glad that Eric Braeden is full of p**s and vinegar!

Good for him! He is committed to the reality of the situation, which is not always the case. A few years back on Days Of Our Lives Jennifer Horton had her heart removed and later replaced and was back baking cookies the next week!

Maybe folks are confused because so many stories have loose ends that aren’t handled so conscientiously. Once a plot is concluded, details are often sidelined in the interests of moving on. So I commend Mr. Braeden for his dedication to authenticity. Of course, the entire confusion could be cleared up with a simple remark like, “Victor’s coma may have some aftereffects that will take time to heal.” But we wouldn’t expect Miss Nikki to utter these words. She’s too busy trying to get into Arturo’s–um–business.

I have never seen an actor play sick for so long. Nikki has MS, yet hardly ever shows any symptoms. Ashley had a tumor remover from her brain and was at work two days later. The fans are just not used to this soap playing an illness like Real life. I am very happy he is doing great.

I know the actor keeps himself in great shape but it is rare that an actor plays out his or her injuries for a long period of time. Remember Victor had a heart transplant and he has had no ill effects, takes no meds and drinks like a fish!

Victor was always a sour puss because he was breastfed as an infant and the milk was sour-lol

Fans are “confused” either way. When Tyler Christopher’s “Stefan O” on Days was beaten to an inch of his life, some fans want to know why he still has cuts and bruises on his face a week later. Beaten within an inch of his life!!! Face pummeled, eyes/mouth swollen, face purple, but they’re shocked that his face isn’t completely healed. They’d sooner believe someone came back from the dead.

I agree that Stefan is playing his role as he should.

I JUST THOUGHT HE WAS USING HIS ILLNESS TO GET HIM BACK INTO HIS FAMILY WANTING THEM TO FEEL SORRY FOR HIM,,HE PLAYS SUCH A EVIL MAN, WE NEVER KNOW WHAT HE IS UP TO NEXT,,

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.

Ellen DeGeneres Offers Apology As She and Her Talk Show Remain Under Fire

On Thursday, Ellen DeGeneres served up an apology to former and current staff and crew members of her ever-popular daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After many complaints were brought to light by former employees of the show about the culture of the work-place behind the scenes, WarnerMedia is now handling its own internal investigation of the show.  It all began when BuzzFeed’s widely-circulated piece had former employees’ anonymous accusations of racism, intimidation, unjust termination and an overall toxic work culture, perpetuated by the show’s top producers.

In a memo, DeGeneres expressed that now that the issues were brought to her attention, they are taking steps to ensure to correct them moving forward.   While neither she nor Warner Brothers will comment on the fate of specific employees, two sources had revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that executive producer Ed Glavin — one of the show’s three EPs, and the one at the center of many of the more unsavory claims is among those who will be let go

Ellen let everyone associated with the show that she would have delivered this message on-camera on her show, if not for COVID-19, where everyone on the staff and the crew would have been present.   What she wrote is below:

DeGeneres shared:  “Hey everybody – it’s Ellen. On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.

I could not have the success I’ve had without all of your contributions. My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or — worse — disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.

It’s been way too long, but we’re finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.

I am so proud of the work we do and the fun and joy we all help put out in the world. I want everyone at home to love our show and I want everyone who makes it to love working on it. Again, I’m so sorry to anyone who didn’t have that experience. If not for COVID, I’d have done this in person, and I can’t wait to be back on our stage and see you all thenStay safe and healthy.  Love,  Ellen”

Meanwhile, Everybody Loves Raymond alum Brad Garrett , who has been a guest on Ellen, claimed on Twitter that DeGeneres bears responsibility for the workplace culture.  He tweeted late Thursday night. “Sorry but it comes from the top ⁦@TheEllenShow. Know more than one who were treated horribly by her.⁩ Common knowledge.”

So, how do view’s Ellen’s message? Do you think the show is about to go under some serious house-cleaning? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
