Say WHAT?! Eric Braeden Tells NYT Neil Patrick Harris: "Needs A Little Spanking"



Oh, no he didn't! Seems like Eric Braeden is still peeved about How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris hoe-checking him on Twitter. The Young and the Restless star spoke with The New York Times about Harris' tweet saying:

[He] needs a little spanking, that one.

Braeden never denied Harris' claims about his departure from the show and said although he was recovering from hip surgery in order for him to reprise the role:

nbsp;It needs to be more than just two lines.

My goodness! How many media outlets is this man going to run to? Jillian, don't be surprised if you hear from Eric B later on tonight - lol!

He'll probably issue a statement to my local newspaper in time for the Sunday edition

How is it that half the country is claiming that NPH is being overused right now and Eric Braeden doesn't know who he is? I guess Eric needs to catch up on his pop culture! Maybe ya'll can send him a link to pop confidential! This is kind of a cute scuffle! I am sure Neil is just doing it to raddle Mr Braeden's chain. Wouldn't it be funny if on Y&R they did a cross over story with HIMYM and Barney came to do business with The Mustache!

Bravo to Eric Braeden for having a sense of humor about the whole thing.

NPH shot his mouth off without knowing the full facts. Braeden put him in his place.

Case closed!

Ugh, I seriously do not need a round two of the Eric Braeden Media Tour. One statement would have been plenty.

Joss

EB even admitted that his lack of lines is why he backed out and that is unprofessional to do the day before a show tapes

He clearly thinks he is above it...

I just dont like the guy, I find him extremely annoying
Eric Braden may have an ego, but he can act circles around NPH..

Appleridge,

That's not the full statement. Braeden explained that he is recuperating from surgery and has been working front burner at Y&R, doing 50 pages of dialog a day.

I think people are forgetting that Braeden is elderly and getting over major surgery. Hip replacement surgery is not like getting a cavity filled.

Have you ever known anyone Braeden's age who has gone through a hip replacement?

Joss I Understand that But Fact Is That He Agreed To Do The episode

Then Found Out It was Two Lines and backed Out

He even said It Had To Be More than two lines for him to do it

I Just Wish EB would have asked this before he agreed cause backing out at the last minute is never a good idea

why do only one when 5 or 6 would be so much better?? Someone else on one of the other EB vs. NPH threads commented that maybe EB wasn;t running to news outlets with quotes, but that they were coming to him.

I have 2 words for EB, if that's the case....no comment!!

Ok I had to laugh at the comment of EB acting circles around NPH. EB has played essentially the same character in every role he has ever had. They are all interchangeable. While NPH has actually shown variety in his roles.

I think I would like to see Victor Newman spanking NPH's middle aged, yet still firm buttocks!

Oh thank God I didn't have any water in my mouth when I read your comment alston! It would have been all over my laptop monitor and that would NOT be a good thing!

This entire story has been having me in fits of giggles!

Glad to hear I gave you a little chuckle........... Big smile Big smile

Seriously, there's something very homoerotic about his comment. But the truth is, NOTHING would make my year more than to find out that MR. MUMBLES engages in um.....DOWN LOW....activities!!! Stranger things have happened!!!! Wink Wink

Eric Braeden is proving that NPH was right in calling him a douche bag. I hope Y&R fires his ass now!

lmao. Is this Twitter war for real? Or is EB really going to be on How I Met Your Mother and this is a way of promoting it?

Vixen, the show is better without him. That was proved last year when he was off-screen and in the past month when he's been away. Victor sucks. Eric Braeden is a megalomaniac. I wish he'd stop ruining my show.

Simple C, this is real. Braeden appeared on HIMYM once before and was to appear again, but he thought the role wasn't worthy of his "talent" so he walked. They have recast with Ray Wise.

I'm sorry, but I highly doubt that HIMYM will EVER allow EB anywhere NEAR their set after his threatening messages he's posted in regards to NPH. NPH is the star of that show and the show will protect NPH any day of the week instead of having a buffoon like EB on their show for what I assume EB would consider a "measly" role that he isn't fitting for an actor of his "stature" (total joke people). Stature my rear end, like I said in another thread, I've lost all respect for EB and I for one am glad NPH called him on the carpet!

Braeden isn't even an actor. He mumbles his way through the role of Victor. Cannot stand him!!

I was just at the offices of the Auto Trader placing an ad, and I overheard Eric Braeden call in to tell them Neil Patrick Harris needs an oil change and a tune up!
