Y&R's Michael Muhney on upcoming fan fest "No groping & we're all good"!

© JPI Studios

The Young and the Restless, Michael Muhney (Adam) is heading to Raleigh, North Carolina with many other soap stars and some of his Y&R castmates next weekend for the Soap Star Spectacular on Sunday, November 21st.  The talented actor and Genoa City’s resident bad boy spoke to WRAL.com yesterday for a phone interview. When speaking with the reporter about fan interaction Muhney said jokingly, “Don’t grope me.  No groping and we’re all good.”

Muhney went onto discuss playing the many layers of Adam Newman, “As long as Adam has a bite and he can be cruel and manipulative with the right people, but then can have a whole different tact with others, he will be fun to play. I always want to hold on to the bad boy side.”

And as far as the fans, Muhney truly loves meeting them,  “I’m just about as thrilled with the opportunity this next weekend as the folks who will be attending.  It is kind of a pay-it-forward moment when I get to interact with folks. They are the ones you are performing for.”

Please get Adam and Daisy off of Y&R and please don’t let Deacon come back. I really miss watching Y&R but I won’t as long as these total unlikeables are still on. It seems to me that MAB has taken too much advice from Brad Bell. Not listening to your fans (who hate Adam, Deacon, and Daisy) and ticking off the fans isn’t good for ratings. We don’t like these characters and we’ve stated as much over and over and over and over……

Actually, none of that (my previous comment) matters if Y&R is already slated for cancellation and they are either trying to condition us now so that is won’t matter as much or if they are trying to get the numbers low so they can act all surprised and devastated when it happens. It smacks of GL and ATWT to me and it is no way to treat decades-loyal fans. Or any fans.

Wow! Save the drama for Y&R! To quote Melody Thomas Scott in a recent interview, “it’s a SOAP, baby!” Y&R has been number one in the ratings for years upon years for a reason. I enjoy the show each and every day. There’s always a few characters that people won’t respond to, for whatever reason, but there are just as many other characters that people enjoy. The core group will always be there and it’s the temporary ones who’ll be gone before you know it. I’m certain you’ve been watching long enough to realize that. Sheesh!

As long as MF allows comments, I will comment. So sheesh back to you, baby. There are far too many channels on TV to suffer through a show that has loathesome and unlikeable characters. Victor does not have both of those characteristics. That comparison is like apples and potatoes. Why would anyone watch something that is just unpleasant? It just adds insult to injury to have read that so many other viewers feel similarly and MAB just blows off the feedback and forges ahead. The longevity of Deacon, Daisy, and Adam is too much. Enjoy the ratings MAB. Devoted Fan… Read more »

Your comment/reply makes absolutely no sense.

Everyone’s got their own opinions on individual characters and disliking a couple isn’t going to mean a thing. I happen to enjoy watching Adam AND Deacon. Have LOATHED (not loved to hated) Victor Newman for the entirety of his presence on the show. Ever since he was married to Julia. I’m not alone. And yet, somehow the show survived all that… 😉

Former ‘Bachelor’ Star Colton Underwood Shares More Details on His Decision to Come Out Including Being Blackmailed

Last month, Colton Underwood came out publicly in a sit-down interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

The former lead of ‘The Bachelor’, Underwood’s announcement was met with some harsh criticism since he was already prepping a reality show about it for Netflix.

However, in a new feature with Variety, Colton shares what finally led him to reveal his truth: “I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed.”

In his conversation, Underwood shared that while in LA he visited a spa known for a gay clientele.  Shortly thereafter, he received an anonymous email from someone claiming to have taken nude photos of him at the venue. Underwood never saw the alleged photos and explains he was at the spa “just to look,” saying he “should have never been there.”

The unidentified blackmailer threatened to “out” him in the press, and in a panic, Underwood forwarded the email to his publicist, which forced him to finally have an honest conversation about his sexual orientation, and a reckoning, of sorts.

Adding to all of this, Underwood’s relationship with his ex Cassie Randolph has also been under fire, where in court documents she filed a restraining order, alleging that he stalked her and placed a tracking device on her car.

Due to a joint agreement with Randolph, Underwood is limited in what he can say to the press. But in the interview with Variety, he shared he wants to clear the air, because he’s seen the word “abuse” attached to previous reports on their relationship situation.  Colton expressed, “I did not physically touch or physically abuse Cassie in any way, shape or form.”

Randolph broke up with Underwood he shares, and that he was in “such a dark place” because he knew that this would be his last straight relationship and the reality hit him hard.  Underwood clarified: “If there was anything I could do to take more ownership, I would. But also, out of respect to her, I don’t want to get into the details. I want this interview to be the last time I address her, because it’s not fair for her to have her name in articles every time I talk. I’m sorry, and I want her to know that I hope she has the best, most beautiful life.”

As far as if Colton feels ABC should discuss having a gay season of The Bachelor, or if he would come back to appear as its lead, he would only say: “I think they should discuss it.  It should be a conversation. I don’t like speaking in definitives, but I’m not in a position to be in a show like that. I’m at a crossroads in my life right now.”

Watch a portion of the interview below with Colton and Variety below.  Then share your thoughts on how Underwood decided to come out via the comment section and his plans for the near-future.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
