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.

Oh much ado about nothing! With all the problems this nation has we are concerned about this? Eric Braeden must be smoking the stuff he is selling on TV! GROW UP! Get over your self! YOU GOT THAT!!!!!

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 too.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
