Y&R's Eric Braeden snaps back at Neil Patrick Harris twitter scolding!

As news spread yesterday of How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris twitter slap at The Young and the Restless, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), for calling him a “D-bag” (due to the soap icon backing out of a planned appearance on the CBS sitcom), now Braeden has spoken to another Hollywood outlet on the situation.  This time it’s the The Hollywood Reporter, where Braeden has some very choice words for Harris.

Braeden told THR, “It was utterly inappropriate. He’s a little boy. I need a worthy adversary. I don’t even know who this fellow is. I don’t have a Twitter thing. But you have to be careful in this world.”

For those who missed this twitter mess, it all stemmed from when Harris had objected to Braeden dropping out of an episode of How I Met Your Mother at the last minute because the part was not “substantial” enough — and then wrote the offensive Tweet.

Harris later apologized by Tweeting, “Now I feel bad for the D-bag comment. Don’t know the guy personally. I’m just fiercely protective of our show.”

So what do you think of Harris’s behavior and Braeden’s responses? Let us know!

Braeden’s comment about the role not being substantial—it is a half hour sitcom for God’s sake—makes him appear to be on he arrogant side. Harris’ comment on Twitter makes him sound childish. The entire issue makes both of them look small.

Eric Braeden thinks entirely too much of himself and his importance. That man’s ego is out of control. He’s obviously been playing the Victor Newman role too long. He needs a reality check. I’ve never understood his appeal. Still don’t. Hope he does everyone a favor and retires soon. Tired of seeing his crater face on Y&R.

Braeden calls Harris a little boy. But a real man would have ignored the comments and moved out without incident. Braeden is the spoiled child here.

NPH was out of line with his comments.The choice of words he used was inappropriate.And I’ve always been a fan of his from his “Doogie Howser’ days..Eric Braedens comments were a little harsh but in his place i might have acted the same way.

Sorry for NPH, cause EB is all too arrogant and probably deserved it.
Personally, I wish EB were off Y&R. Too many cast members are superior talents and are given no story at all just to pander to one grand ego.

Hmm, love them both. Gotta go with Team Braeden, though. He *is* a big frickin’ deal imo (I don’t even watch Y&R and know this LOL). If he wants a bigger part and they don’t have one for him, what’s the problem with his stepping down and letting someone else do the job? I’m sure whoever got it in the end appreciated it. NPH’s comment was probably poorly chosen, but he’s apologized and explained himself. No harm done, kids — like Johanna mentioned, publicity for all!

NPH sang at the trevor project but he’s calling Braeden that term? Verbal bullying. NPH should shut up, apologize to Braeden personally and take care of his child. Of course Braeden would be upset.

Hello my name is Cara. I have been a fan of the Young and the Restless since I was a little girl. A big part of the show involved The Newmans and The Abbots who have extremely ,tremendously won my heart over the years with their outstanding rolls. Which each and everyone of them I have found to be intriguing and charming and very sexy. Eric is always been arrogant and sexy to me with a lot of charm which I love most about him, not to mention charming as well. A man like that is truly makes wonderful lovers… Read more »

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

In response to the announced season six conclusion, creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: “Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end’ never had to end their favorite thing. While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.
