Y&R's Melody Thomas Scott On Michael Muhney Firing: "Tragic Situation!"

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

The Young and the Restless Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) followed up on a tweet from TV Guide’s Michael Logan on the firing of Michael Muhney and the circumstances surrounding it last week.

Logan tweeted out: “If/when the REAL Muhney story comes out, U won’t B blaming ANYONE at @YandR_CBS @Sony or @CBSDaytime.”

The iconic Y&R actress then responded to fans who are claiming that Muhney’s firing is all the doing of the series executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps.  Melody has also echoed sentiments of a few other Y&R stars who have attempted to make it clear to upset fans that Jill Farren Phelps was not responsible for Muhney’s ousting.

Melody in her tweets said: “Not my place 2 reveal but the arrogance of some ppl who have NO knowledge of the situation is astonishing. THE SHOW IS NOT 2 BLAME. ANY actor would’ve been fired under these circumstances.   Terrible loss 2 the show & it sickens me that this has happened. Jill is completely innocent in this. So is the show, Sony, CBS, etc. Tragic situation.”

What do you think about Melody’s tweets?  Weigh-in!

Well, IF something happened such as has been rumored it would sadden me because although he could be irreverent and prickly in his comments it would be terrible if there was something major that occurred ending not only his time at Y&R but also causing him future job issues. Should actors & others misdeeds be kept secret? I guess it depends on the specifics. Though, perhaps it would have been better for others, such as D. Davidson and Michael Logan to refrain from comment…especially Logan. I can see DD and now MST trying to get people to cease nasty speculation… Read more »

What has been rumored?

If it’s what I think she’s referring to, it is only a rumor placed by ONE TROLL on another soap thread that is too ludicrous to even be true. NO facts, NO evidence, and there would be NO reason to hush it up as that would be a slap in the face to someone else.

If it was, trust me it wouldn’t be so hush hush!

He was supposedly fired from the tv show VERONICA MARS prior to landing his role on Y&R due to inappropriate behavior towards female employees on set who were just trying to do their jobs. They say he also leaked script information to VERONICA MARS fans online and didn’t get along with the rest of the cast (not just the ladies who he groped or manhandled – but the majority of everyone else). So this new info about him isn’t at all surprising given his past.

Yeah, Josh, you keep saying that word for word. Kayne West might be a meglomaniac. I really don’t care because the man doesn’t have the talent to back up the ego. But for you to put Lady Gaga in the same camp? By all accounts, off stage she is an incredibly nice and humble person. The same is said about Michael Muhney. So go take your Poker Face else where with all of your false allegations.

Joshua

@Harry

Gaga hasn’t been humble since she was about four years old and no I am not a Gaga hater because I too have seen her in concert (extraordinary voice) but the woman — just like Kanye and Muhney — is majorly conceited and way too arrogant this young in their careers.

And how is that “ARTPOP” going for her? Oh that’s right, it’s nowhere near being art pop but a chartflop.

It may not be Melodys place to reveal?…so why say anything at all…why hint that the actor did something wrong…keep your trap shut if its not your place then…lets stop adding fuel to the fire…i dont know what happen behind the scenes and im not going to guess anymore…i dont care…the actor was fired for something he allegedly done…ok…if you cant say then dont comment at all…he’ll move on and so will i…its like actors and shows today thrive on bad publicity and the badder the better…im tired of it!

Is is just a coincidence that Melody Thomas Scott’s husband is one of the Producers of the show, and all the MORE reason why she should have kept her mouth shut on the situation.

If Michael did something really bad, like Mel’s tweets imply, why would he be allowed to continue working and not terminated immediately.

Logan is a reporter so why doesn’t he spill the ‘real’ story?

MM was told the character would be placed on a 3-6 month break. He probably felt like that’s too long to sit around and wait so JFP pulled the rug out from under him. He shouldn’t worry- he’ll be snapped up quickly.

Exactly–we don’t know anything and if there is an accusation there is such a thing as innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, I guess that is applicable to JFP as well. It’s just she has a horrible track record and this why so many fans jumped to the conclusion that this was her doing. I don’t really appreciate Melody calling MM fan’s arrogant though. Fans are right to take umbrage that their favorite daytime actor was abruptly fired. Not knowing why he was fired, and having to read these teasers is only amplifying their (our) outrage.

Harry…no one has a right to know why anyone is fired. Not the high school clerk at the local McDonald’s or even a high ranking Microsoft executive. Employment details are confidential. If its a matte rof national security or there was murder or larceny or child abuse involved then yes…he public has. Right to know. But this media age has made people feel too entitled to feel they have to or deserve to know everything. What happensbeind closed doors…well…the doors are closed for a reason!

No one has the right to know why anyone is fired indeed, but that means certain soap columnists (Not Fairman) and actors need to stop making intimations. How can one defend one’s self against hints and teasers? it’s dirty pool.

Patrick–isn’t it interesting how life is imitating art as far as Y&R is concerned? Victor and Nikki never saw any good in Adam and clearly the actors feel the same about the actor who plays Adam. And Nikki has been driving me crazy (albeit a short drive for me) with her willingness to play victim to Victor.

MTS statements are as ridiculous as Logan; if what MM did was so terrible, why would he be allowed to finish up his work and not escorted of the set by security? It is obvious to me that Muhney was not a boot licker of the “in crowd” and his obvious talent outshined them; I do think Muhney has a huge ego but so what? Eric Breaden is the biggest egomaniac on that set and has even come to blows with his fellow cast member because of it. Why is the coot allowed to be there for decades if ego… Read more »

No actor currently on the show is going to say anything negative about JFP or their employer companies, not if they want to continue to work. Remember what happened to Cady McClain when she lamented that Julia Barr had been let go from AMC? That led directly to her exit from the show via the poisoned pancakes. (God the show was terrible then!) So don’t look to the actors to tell any truths, they can’t. Not and still get a paycheck. But I also don’t think they need to be proactive in kissing JFP or any corporate butt, either. And… Read more »

I think Michael Muhney is a great actor. But I am not going to blame EB, MTS or DD for not allowing their friends and peers to be vilified by MM fans who are speculating without the facts. Ask yourself was it fair for EB , Jill Farren Phelps or Maura West to be subjected to the rumors about them? Poor Maura West. She is on a different show, has a new life but she is being dragged into something that does not even involve her.

It doesn’t matter what the story is and if Jill wasn’t to blame, why wouldn’t she say so herself? From comments previously made by Eric Braeden when Michael has expressed how Victor’s story is usually a rehash of the same old Victor disappears, presumed dead, family wishes they had treated him better (as if they should), then hero returns, I’d say there is no love lost between Eric, Melody, and Michael. So I’m not surprised on her stance. I would find it too much of a coincidence that so many stars are leaving for whatever the reason, since JP arrived.… Read more »

I think that folks need to realize that it is none of our business why he was fired. It is a personnel matter and is no ones business other that MM and CBS/SONY. In fact, he may rather us not know. It may have been part of his severance package that he goes and no one discusses it. The secrecy could be to protect his future employment prospects. Am I curious? Absolutely. But until the actor or the show release the story, the rest of this noise doesn’t do anyone any good. I will miss him. I hope that he… Read more »

I agree with you but think that veiled comments & innuendo by other actors and columnist, Michael Logan only fuel the fire and increase speculation. Unless the incident was unlawful and he could be brought up on charges – which most certainly be a matter of public record – they should maintain their silence. Their lack of public support allow the issue to fade quicker.

It’s called a character assassination. Melody Thomas Scott has no business talking about a personal matter that she’s not involved in. CBS and Sony violated confidential information by allowing this matter to spread into libel and slander. I will NEVER watch Y&R again. NEVER.

He’s a talented actor. Whatever mistake, if any, he made is better left unsaid. He s moving on and probably for the better. Y&R is terrible and JFP is slowly driving it into the grave. Whether she had nothing to do with his firing the truth lies in how the show is running, or in this case hobbling along, overall. Why don’t you ask actors who have worked for JFP in the past on AW ,Oltl, and GH? They don’t work for her currently and they can be honest and not afraid to lose their jobs.

Didn’t Austin Peck get fired from ATWT for having an affair with then married co-star Terri Conn? They ended up getting married so it wasn’t as if it was his fault if it was mutual. I have no idea what happened with MH but it certainly is too bad. I hope that it was not sexual harrasment or something like that.

These mysterious tweets are only adding fuel to the fire. Why they would think blaming MM would make his fans feel better he got fired is beyond me. If he did something so horrible like assaulting someone or stealing something, he should have been arrested. MM seemed totally surprised by his firing– if he had done something so bad one would think he would expect it, or been fired on the spot. Maybe JFP wasn’t the one who made the decision, but she is the EP, she could have fought to keep MM. She is either spineless, letting corporate tell… Read more »

There was that rumor about Austin Peck. Terri’s husband was apparently pretty popular with the cast of ATWT and apparently some of the cast wanted him off the show. I think Michael Park in particular wanted him gone and I sort of resented that they let his character be the one to accidentally kill Brad. I always thought their logic was flawed, that if he he was booted from the show, then Terri should have been as well.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Austin’s situation, I believe, was because Terri was still legally married when she and Austin got together. I don’t want to make an unruly rumours, but that’s what I heard.

Austin was married as well! But I guess Terri was on the show first. Still, it takes two to tango so why was he targeted? Regardless, I don’t care. I think they both acted poorly. Don’t understand why this is being brought up.

twbyz…I remember the Austin Peck-Terri Conn drama. With Austin Peck, it all goes back to this days at DOOL (I think). Anyway, in the beginning, AP got along with and was very close to his fellow DOOL cast members. Then, one day, AP discovered religion and became Born-Again. From that point on, Austin alienated basically EVERYONE on the DOOL set because of his religious beliefs and VERY preachy ways. Eventually, AP left DOOL on very bad and very hostile terms. Later on, AP brought along with him the same self-righteous religious and preachy behavior when he was hired to play… Read more »

This is absolutely unbelieveable. Hollywood has never ever been known for its morals or ethics conduct. This has been going on since they started filming in California way back when, i.e. Jackie Coogan, Charlie Chaplin and the list goes on. I am not saying it is right. But the actress is 20 not 16. And where were they that he had access to her breasts without anyone noticing? It looks as if there are a gazillion people on that set every day. Why would he take a chance seeing he has a family. I am sure he isnt the first… Read more »

Fans keep saying they want the cast or people to tell them what happened, and when someone says something they don’t want to hear…they cry “foul”. Be careful what you wish for. Last week was it before the cast’s two weeks off. Regardless of what he did, it was perfect timing for him to be released instead of being immediately walked out. Plus we don’t know who if anyone he had contact with anyway. He said he had three more scenes to film. Maybe they were by himself or if his dismissal involved someone else on the set, maybe he… Read more »

Whatever the true story is, this is another nail in the Y&R coffin.Michael is one of the best actors around….I’ve always loved watching him and will be so sorry to see him go….but Y&R has been on a downward spiral for months with the dark & depressing storylines & the constant leaving & recasting of actors….With Jeannes death, Eileens leaving, Abbys recast, Billy leaving & Kyle being recast again, Michaels leaving is another shot that I don’t know if Y&R can survive…. I hope so because there are only 4 soaps left.

Whatever the reason for the firing, Michael is the best actor on the show. As I see it, the show is in deep trouble-many of the actors have been recast, which does not speak well for the producers. Many friends, like myself, will not be watching any longer, after Dec. 30, 2013. Adults should all behave like adults. Why not fire characters who display values of hatred, manipulation, deceitfulness, like Eric? At least Michael displays regret, a belief in second chances, compassion, humility and seeks forgiveness, and makes it believable. Y&R is headed for defeat.

I just have to interject and say no matter what the circumstances are behind any employees’ firing, that security always escorts the employee out of the building on their last day of work to ensure no eruption or other trespass should occur. It is done to help support the quietude of the establishment. I have seen this happen 4 times. If MM was escorted out of the building by security on his last day of employment this bears no reflection on him–this is simply a matter of protocol.

Mo

dg, verbal sexual harassment, while bad, is not the same as actually touching a person, which is what is alleged here. And that it was done in front of witnesses. If your co-worker had touched a co-worker inappropriately, I hope that it would have been reported to the police (if not by the company, then the victim) and the individual immediately put on leave while the incident was investigated.

As it is now, my daugter will ask “How were soaps?” I answer by stating that it was an Adam episode, or an non Adam episode, and go from there.

Again, I say if this is true, MM should have been terminated immediately and escorted from the building, not told he only had X number of shows left to film. If this is true and they allowed him to continue filming/working/being in the building with the victim, it is extremely poor.

These claims are beyond typical (if there is such a thing) sexual harassment where the harassment is verbal.

The feud basically started when Ashley found out that Y&R were replacing Nick Scotti (aka Tony Viscardi #1) with Jay Bontatibus (aka Tony Viscardi #2).

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.
