Photo Credit: JPI Studios

The Young and the Restless’ Michael Muhney makes Adam Newman one of the most complex and interesting characters to watch on daytime television.  The talented Mr. Muhney spoke with Soaps.com about Adam’s relationship with Sharon, stepping into the role of Adam to begin with and the complexities of the situation, and Adam’s estranged relationship with his father, Victor.   Here is an excerpt below!

Muhney on Adam’s true feelings for Sharon: “Adam finds himself wanting to be a better man because of Sharon. I’ll be honest, I think that in real life, if you left most men to their vices and women weren’t in the world, men would be even more corrupt than they are now! I think that Adam feels he has a lot more to lose now that he has Sharon. ”

So with all the twists and turns going down for Sharon and Adam, do you think there love will endure? Let us know.

Absolutely yes. This is Shadam-made — angst, long-suffering, pain and then, after an exhaustive trial, the passionate, explosive, sensual and ultimate reunion.

This is what Shadam is all about — romance with an edge, angst before heaven — a soapy couple for the ages.

I’m glad we know they aren’t gonna last forever. I’m sorry but as talented as Muhney is, he and Stafford united on screen is the epitome of explosive, tainted, soapy super coupledom. IMO they are the true forbidden love and YR is missing the boat by not pairing the together. Shaon and Adam bring out the worst in each other and make the other character boring. I’m sorry, but her grown son told her she is a bad mother, and she is giving up a life w/ her daughter for a life w/ Adam. Not the Sharon I remember. I loved the Phadam scenes and want more, more, more. BRING ON PHADAM.

I would have a hard time truly believe that he loves her much as he does.When he is trying to convice her to runway right after a possible Veridict in a murder case.If he truly loves her then he would’ve even have her do this.I am sorry to me the writers are hurting Sharon character now with the possible of her running away convice by Adam.That is what is hurting her character more then anything else.Its almost like Sharon is looking through rose color glasses.Not opening her eyes of what Adam wants her to do.Not only that it will hurt her case more then helping it.So please writers truly think about this way heard of time before .This I am sorry to say just may blow up in there faces.For I feel this will make there rating drop big time.

After reading the blog on Y&R today why do I get the feeling this new man in Sharon’s life is going to be the real Victor Newman Jr? Any thoughts????

Funny you should say that. My sister and I have never believed he was the real Adam for some reason. So you think the new hunky Vet is the real V.N Jr.??
This storyline with Sharon and Adam totally turns my stomach. Not just the whole baby thing. He’s Nick’s brother, what was she thinking in the first place??
Also, in New Orleans, didn’t she tell Adam she chooses Nick, then Nick dumped her. What’s with this I love you crap. Had Nick not left her, it’s exactly where she’d be. Adam can make her believe anything he wants….I can’t imagine where the Shadam storeyline could possible go. It’s Gross!!

So…I went completely random on you:)

Adam exhibits pause and restraint and regard for Ashley when he is in her presence. My wish is that Muhney would have the same level of regard for fans who feel the way Ashley does. When Ashley forgives him for the heinous things he has done, I will too.

I like Sharon much better with Nick. I also think Adam has more chemistry with Phyllis.

I am loving Shadam!!! I think Sharon Case and Michael Muhney sizzle on screen together and quite honestly I haven’t enjoyed watching Sharon this much since she first got Cassie back. Her and Nick were boring, boring, boring and Nick with all his constantly trying to save her just made her weak and whiny. With Adam she has finally gotten a back bone, which she had reminiscent of one during the first part of her relationship with Jack but then she regressed, and i am so happy to see Sharon get some spunk and fight for what she wants instead of sitting in the corner crying and waiting for Nick or Victor or Diego or Brad or “the list goes on” man to save her. And I like what she brings out in Adam, there’s truly a loving, compassionate, loyal side to him with Sharon. You can tell that she is his entire world and he would go to any lengths to make her happy and help her. But what I like is he doesn’t want to save her, he wants to stand by her side and help her rather than swoop her out of her next mess. He encourages her to stand firmly on her own feet while he stands rooted beside her, unlike the other men who make her weak and dependent. I think they make eachother more interesting and they have that forbidden, no one else understand, us against the world love and i personally love it. I’d basically tunes out of this show right after Phick split up and then tuned back in to New Orleans when I heard Shadam was going to unite down there quite honestly I tuned back out when it looked like it might just be a moment but once they got back together I have been watching again because I can’t get enough of this “right kind of wrong” couple. I’m lookign forward to them clearing Sharon’s name and then remarrying as the rest of the GC residents like Victor wag their hypocritical tongues.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
