Y&R's Kristoff St. John Posts Message On Facebook On Backstage Drama "War Zone"! Stresses "We Want This To End As Much As The Fans Do!"

Daytime Emmy winner Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) of The Young and the Restless continued to share this sentiments on the social media outrage that has hit the series with a new lengthy post and commentary on his Facebook page.

The outrage has occurred since the dismissal of Michael Muhney(Adam Newman) from the number one soap opera, and the information that came to light that one of the reasons for his axing had been his groping of his co-star, Hunter King’s (Summer)breasts.  But as has been made public by other Y&R cast members, Muhney had apparently been problematic on the set getting into heated arguments, etc, that also were a main part of his axing.   It also seems the backstage firing of Muhney and the circumstances that led to it have become something some people want to see play out before a judge and jury.

Outspoken St. John first took to Twitter a few days ago asking for Muhney to come forward to help stop the fan backlash om the cast, that is something that has not been seen in quite this way before, and to tell his side of the story.  The fan backlash has been filled with hateful comments to both King and Muhney,  the cast, and the show executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps, to name a few.

Now on Facebook,  St. John appealed to the audience of the show stressing on all the backstage drama, “We want this to end as much as the fans do!”   But simply adding, we are now all in a “War Zone”.    Below are just a few key excerpts from the post!

Kristoff:  “What does anyone on the periphery of this whole episode really know? We are a company who have worked closely together for many, many years. Some, as in Jeanne Coopers case, may she rest in peace, for 40 long years, since the inception of the show in 1973. Eric Braeden has served 34 years at his post, Doug Davidson 36 years, Melody Thomas Scott 35 years, Jerry Douglas 33 years, and many other cast and crew members who have committed and dedicated MOST of their lives to bring a complex, colorful story to life every day, 52 weeks a year, for 40 years. This is a HUGE chunk of our lives. We know each other, our families, and the show intimately. We have struggled through the good and the bad, professionally, and personally. I cannot speak for those that I have just mentioned, but I imagine the feelings are similar, and run deep. To think that these professional, honest, hard working people are trying to deceive, cover up, misguide or misdirect the public in ANY way is blasphemous, and simply not true.”

He later added: “The implosion at Y and R, has caused fans to seek an even bigger explosion, one that is unwarranted, and without real merit, based on what little information has been given or leaked. Because of this soap opera behind the scenes hysteria, we are now ALL in a WAR ZONE. Can you blame the actors when under fire and being attacked, for putting on flak jackets, arming themselves with the only weapons available, (social media) and firing SOMETHING, anything back? The problem here is that we have very little artillery. Our hands are tied, beyond belief. Beyond our control. WE WANT THIS TO END AS MUCH AS THE FANS DO. But I’ll be damned if I allow a FEW OF THE MANY THAT HAVE HELPED TO CONSTRUCT THE HOUSE THAT WILLIAM BELL SR. built, along with his precious wife LEE PHILLIP BELL, with THIER own hands, from the ground up, to BULLY ME, SCARE ME OR MY FAMILY, AND IMPEDE MY PROGRESS IN THIS ONLY LIFE THAT I/WE HAVE. I have worked for 40 years in this Hollywood machine and have never witnessed such senseless, misdirected anger and discontent. It reminds me more of a Shakespearean play, where misunderstanding and deceit are played out on stage by colorful characters with much charm, but with insidious intentions.”

So what do you think of Kristoff’s latest plea and comments on the difficult situation behind the scenes at Y&R? And asking for everyone to be understanding towards the cast without name-calling, bullying, and insinuating that they all had a hand in Muhney’s dismissal and are part of a cover-up? Comment below!

I think that if Sony or Jill or CBS came out and said, we’re handling things, etc. that would help. Even if they said, it’s an internal matter, blah blah blah, but to say nothing just flames the fire and the fire is outta control.

Meanwhile, I think the cast needs to stay off of Twitter, FB, etc.

This just shows how incompetent JFP is as an executive producer. She fired Michael, then the story of him allegedly groping Hunter King’s boobs came out, and has she made a public announcement? Has Sony or CBS? No. Why? All the higher-ups at these companies need to realize they are really traumatizing the families of King and Muhney, and the fans are getting fed up. Since last month there’s just been one new thing after the other, and I think it’s good MM and HK aren’t getting involved in all this twitter/facebook crap (the rest of the cast shouldn’t be… Read more »

Oh its a big mess that’ for sure but IA that the cast/crew shouldn’t be subjected to the brunt of it. I can understand why Michael didn’t give any further statements. He’s been fired from his job so what can else is he suppose to say after already making statements re: his part …. he took his share of the blame. I’m just hoping that he didn’t lose his job because of an untruth. If he indeed did sexually harass that young lady and groped her then he deserves what he got.

Adam Newman played by M.Muhney is a complex character and NO it will not be easy to replace him. It was alleged that Eric B set this bogus plan up to get rid of MM because a his ego. They set him up and used Hunter to finally get rid of him because all their other attempts failed. This is a serious charge that they’re trying to stick on this man. His career is another issue that will be affected. They’re snakes and I don’t agree with this witch hunt on M Muhhey. I’m so angry with that crew that… Read more »

There are two reasons why this situation has exploded OUT OF CONTROL in my opinion. A) Because everyone was already fed up with JP being there and her numerous, unwelcome, cast changes to give her friends jobs at the expense of the veterans. This was just the straw that broke the camel’s back. AND B) Because the cast themselves, not to mention the leaks coming from the people there, won’t shut up about it! I think JP tried to use this situation to get herself out of the fans hot-seat and it back fired big time. This story was leaked… Read more »

I am not pro JFP or against her…but when people talk about these veterans that she has supposedly pushed aside….that is just false and not true. Yes…she did that on General Hospital…no doubt. But on Y and R under her tenure, all of the veterans have been front and centre. Jack, Victor, Nikki, Paul, Lauren, Michael, Nick, Sharon, Jill, etc are the vets and they have not suffered at all. I was not a fan of Josh Griffith’s writing at all…he wrote awful non- stories for most of these people…so the complaint is with the writing…then I agree. But takig… Read more »

I think the actors have a right to state their opinions. I think some fans are too insensitive. I also think the show is not just one actor or one story. Eventually they will weather this storm but as any human knows…when you are in the middle of crisis, your instinct is to feel like it will never end. I must say though…from some things I have seen written by “fans”, I’m not so positive the police shouldn’t take note of some of the threats.

I agree, Luke. KSJ’s heart may be in the right place but his comments are over the top and unnecessary. This isn’t the soap version of Armageddon. Y&R isn’t the first soap to spark fan ire for having to release a popular actor for behind the scenes issues and they surely won’t be the last. Guess what…the show must go on. KSJ could have pretty much summed up his thoughts with those five words along with assuring fans that the rest of the cast and crew would continue to give it their all to put out the best show they… Read more »

I am sure this is causing stress and turmoil at the show. Job disruptions do that. But his has NO impact on any viewer whatsoever. It is a fictional show where actors come and go.

It seems some of the cast are blaming the fans for the upheaval..

We the fans did not create this mess, it is not our mess.

The mess is the Y&R backyard, not with the fans.
Look at Sony/CBS, the Y&R betrayer leaking to TMZ, , and a couple of cast members who keep putting fuel to the fire..

Soap fans can be vicious, and yet full of love..
don’t blame us for the mess and don’t plead to us to fix it..

We didn’t want MM gone, and he was taken from us,,
you guys have to deal with that mistake, not us..

KSJ makes a lot of good points. good for him for standing up for himself and his coworkers. The public needs to get a grip and but out of this work place situation. Commenting that it’s sad or they feel disappointed or supportive is fine espousing on a topic they really know nothing about is arrogant and inappropriate.

CBS, SONY, and anyone else involved needs to witness a huge ratings dump after this entire senseless tactic. I literally despise JFP and dislike Jean Passanante almost as much.

If KSJ wants the show to be saved, he best look the other direction at his bosses. Many viewers have/are waking up and unwilling to accept the craptastic content his bosses are serving up. The fans HAVE supported this show for 40 yrs, but now we are faced with the question of “What is the reward for our loyalty?” This is not the soap it once was and if it was better than it used to be then things would be different.

I am definitely in agreement with you that this whole thing isn’t just about Muhney or Hunter King; that may have sparked it, but massive fan frustration with years and years of bad decisions (going back before JFP), and things just getting worse instead of better every time the creative team changes, have played a significant part in it as well. I think if the show were in good shape creatively, people would still have been POed, but this whole sad, sad episode would not have exploded the way it has.

While it’s admirable that Mr. St. John has spoken his piece and asked that fans be understanding, etc., other stars have soundly jumped onto the “Muhney must be wrong, King must be right” bandwagon without honestly knowing what happened, if anything.

Disagree. The other soaps are not crazy enough to fire one of their leading men. MM is not the issue (above comment); this has been building up over a long time.

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.

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.

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.
