HomeTVCBSDid The Young and The Restless’ Eric Braeden Throw SHADE at TV Son Michael Muhney on Twitter?! Jillian Bowe September 27, 2012 67 Comments What in the fee-fi-fo-f*** is going on behind-the-scenes at The Young and the Restless these days? Whatever it is, it keeps finding its way on Twitter! We knew when the always outspoken Eric Braeden (Victor) joined the social media site (Thanks, Chubster for the head's up!) it wouldn't take long for some ish to go down. Following a tweet from TV son Michael Muhney (Adam) about how insulting it was to "the actors & the audience" that TGVN was once again presumed dead, Braeden went IN! Here's the tweet from Muhney: Braeden retorted: Well damn EB, tell us how you really feel! 67 Responses marknsprmo September 27, 2012 LOL sounds like some of their bad blood on screen is bleeding on to real life. Seriously if soap viewers were insulted by that, what must they have thought when Adam and Sharon were being pushed down our throats after he pushed her down the stairs and caused her to have a miscarriage and THEN gave her someone elses baby to raise? Was that an insult? I can see both sides to this. Yes it is insulting but then again it isn’t the worst of the worst! So it probably wasn’t THAT comment worthy compared to other things. Such as Sharon marching down the isle with Tucker? Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 September 27, 2012 thank goodness **I** am not on TWITTER! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 September 27, 2012 Old man, Muhney just told it like it is. This storyline was insulting to any viewer with a brain. And while Muhney talks about storyline, Braeden has to take the step and make it personal. It’s just similar to what happened with the Sharon Case situation. She was talking storyline & he attacks her on a personal level. Calling out not only Muhney but everyone’s favorite bastard Nelson Branco AFTER he said in his Michael Fairman interview: “You saw the b**s that went down on Twitter. It was unforgiveable. Enough said. You don’t do that to fellow colleagues.” Well Eric Braeden, out of all Y&R actors YOU were the first one who did it last night! Unforgivable.

A rivalry to entertain us while we wait for the new writing to kick in. Twitter is much more entertaining than MAB’s pointless repulsive crap. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 September 27, 2012 A couple of thoughts float past me after reading this. 1) JFP. Just look what fun you are going to have managing this “zoo” of personalities. 2) Is anybody in the front office re-evaluating their decision to give TGVN a new long term contract? Carry on!…. 0:) Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott September 27, 2012 Off the top of my head in the years I have watched Y&R Victor has been presumed dead twice already – when the car blew up and he was chillin with Hope and when he was presumed dead on the boat and Nikki was drunk on the beach looking for him. After awhile it loses meaning. Just look at Stefano on Days. Log in to Reply Duchess September 27, 2012 I think Victor has only been presumed dead maybe 3 times in 30 years which on a soap isn’t that much especially for the star of the soap. So I didn’t find this insulting at all and it’s the first time MM has had to play Victor being “dead” so I really don’t think he has room to talk. I’ve followed MM for years on twitter and frankly his arrogance knows no bounds so I don’t think EB was far off the mark with what he said. Log in to Reply thecourt99 September 27, 2012 Unpopular opinion here…but I think that they are both correct. It is unbelievable that ANYONE on a soap is dead. People come back from the dead all the time on any soap. Victor, has only been presumed dead 3 times in 30 years (twice during MAB’s tenure). So to be honest, believing Victor is dead isn’t as insulting as believing anyone is dead. That is where i also think EB is correct. Why is MM picking this story to crap on? Was there radio silence during the double doppelganger story? There have been a number of crappy things to happen on Y&R recently, so it does seem targeted…that he focused on this one. I am not on twitter, so I honestly don’t know if he said anything about other stories. I have seen reports that he supported his love story (and I thought that was crap)…so who am I?

Log in to Reply Restless Fan September 27, 2012 I agree with Muhney 100%. The show has been to Victor concentrated for too long now. Enough! I think Eric likes any story where his character is front and center. Sorry dude but MAB’s writing sucks balls and your character needs to be back burned in the healing process we are all about to venture on. Log in to Reply iamglory September 27, 2012 I agree with MM to be honest. This story was very insulting to EB and the viewer’s because he’s capable of doing more. They are copying the Victor/Hope story to a TEE! It’s just a rehash and it’s awful! The viewers deserve more! Log in to Reply LaDivaYR September 27, 2012 Shut up, creepy old man! You’re mad because the new regime won’t put up with your shit any longer. You got a new contract but the guarantee was cut in half; you will NOT, I repeat: NOT, dominate the show or play the world’s oldest casanova anymore. Eric Braeden is angry because the younger generations are taking over. MM, Joshua M, Billy M, the new Noah, etc. will be front and center once JFP and Josh Griffith take over in mid October. Victor is going back to his favorite victim, Nikki the punching bag, and he’s settling down FOR GOOD. No more romances with girls who can be his granddaughters. No more telling the writers what to write. No more “winning” all the time. It’s the end of an era, and the whole world can see what a blowhard Eric Braeden really is. Karma is a diva bitch!

I agree the show has been concentrated on Victor for too long, but during a period of time where the show was concentrated on Adam, did the same complaints about insulting writing exist? I recall when MM was a favorite of MAB’s too. My point, MM likes being front and center just as much as EB does. MAB’s writing sucks balls regardless of who is front and center. Log in to Reply Divatude58 September 27, 2012 Micheal Muheny is jus upset because he realized during the show exactly where he stood on the pecking order. Victor had the two children by his side that TPTB think are important. Nicholas and Victoria. They are the real next generation Newmans and he doesn’t like that his character isn’t. MM is very arrogant and seesm to think that this show will fall apart without him. It won’t. Team EB. Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 September 27, 2012 Man it must be very hard to like EB.

Log in to Reply aveRex September 27, 2012 Go get ‘em, Michael! Log in to Reply Yoryla September 27, 2012 I am glad EB said it. Michael Muhney is a narcissist and acts like he is God. It shows from the speaks on Twitter, what kind of words he uses, the audiences he speaks to. He has quite successfully painted the picture that he is the only actor who is on the fans’ side, and speaks from the viewers point of view. It’s manipulation. He wants things to go his way and have the biggest spotlight on him, as much as the next actor, but he goes about it in a way that’s underhanded. And the fact remains he HAS only been on for three years. He doesn’t have, nor should have the same clout as someone who has been on for 20 to 30 years, regardless of who that person is. Even Michelle Stafford and Greg Rikaart, who have been quite open and direct on their Twitter about things, don’t usually comment on storylines. It is not a matter of whether MM is right or wrong, but it wasn’t his place to address it. Log in to Reply hey mon September 27, 2012 Go, go, go Mike Muhney go.

I know you don’t like MM but blasting him for voicing an opinion (that 99% of YR viewers SHARE) is wrong. And please don’t use two of the biggest hypocrites on Y&R as examples of openness… Oh hell, no. Log in to Reply beautreal September 27, 2012 I honestly love Michael Muhney and agree with pretty much everything he says especially where this story has been concerned, and should stand his ground no matter what.

And is he right on his opinion? Of course he is! But that’s not the point. An adult doesn’t say things and afterwards not expect any consequences. If a person with status says something out loud, they HAVE to know someone will respond. It works the same way in every business. And I certainly did not “blast” anyone. Just told it like I see it, just like MM portrays himself. As far as MS and GR are concerned, whatever “preferences” you’re talking about have nothing to do with this. My point was, they are both pretty outspoken about things happening in the world. But they still have the wisdom not to speak negatively of storylines on Twitter, especially ones that aren’t their own. Log in to Reply bishbay September 27, 2012 Yoryla, for the record, Adam did have to play a lot of scenes concerning V’s death, so this is his storyline. I do agree with your larger point that MM is not behaving particularly maturely or productively, ESPECIALLY since this plot was the product of a former EP. Log in to Reply CarlyCfan September 27, 2012 I’m torn lol. I think MM is insufferable and not as great as he thinks he is.

Why complain about someone that has already been fired? Log in to Reply scrumptious September 28, 2012 Team Braeden! Michael Muhney has been shooting his mouth off on Twitter and other message boards for years. His ego is enormous and out of control. I’ve lost count of the number of times he’s had some internet meltdown. He routinely fights with fans and makes passive aggressive digs about his coworkers. After Tony Geary’s Emmy recent winner, he had a nasty little hissy fit. Just recently Muhney ranted about Victor’s storyline and bragged about rewriting 50% of his scripts to suit his own liking. He seems to believe he is the authority on Y&R and entitled to write the damn show himself! It’s ridiculous. It’s about time somebody gave him a smackdown and who better than Eric Braeden! Go, Eric, go! http://i45.tinypic.com/j09yrc.jpg I had to significantly cut lines in today’s scenes that REALLY had a “gushing” effect over Victor. What you saw, on air, was tame in comparison to what was written. I was disappointed at the out-of-character writing for Adam (regarding his father) in the final 10-12 “Adam” episodes before the October 12th new regime scripts. There were lines that I cut like, “I’m so sorry Chelsea that I ruined your shirt crying & sobbing on your shoulder all night about my father.” And “I dont even know who I am anymore without my dad.” And there were even lines with Adam glorifying Victor speaking of how much a family man and good father (to all his children) Victor was. And it had Adam talking about how he now understands the kind of amazing, loving father that Victor was and he hopes to one day be just as good a father to his own children as Victor was. I was so confused by the out-of-character lines that I ended up cutting more than 50% of all of Adam’s dialogue in the final 9-10 shows (that I was in) before the new regime’s scripts came in. And I’m rather proud of the Adam/Victor scenes on Oct 10-11 that air just before the new regime’s scripts start on Oct 12th. Through lots and lots of cutting and some rewrites I was able to hold on to Adam and his voice and turn some rather illogical, irrational Adam scenes into something that made much more sense for the character. From October 12th onward, I feel that almost all the characters start to return to form, and start sounding more like their unique characters, with their own unique voices, rather than speaking dialogue that moves the plot-of-the-week forward, never mind if it was something that that specific character would never think or feel or say. Log in to Reply pferrando September 28, 2012 Neither should be tweeting about the show in a negative way. It’s damaging to the show’s image. Screw them both for acting like babies.

Is the great ALMIGHTY ERIC BRAEDEN the only one allowed to have a voice? An opinion?! Log in to Reply Divatude58 September 28, 2012 Make no mistake about it. If Adam was the center of that SL losing his eyesight for 5th time in less than that years, MM would have been praising the show and the script. He is a nobody in the grande scheme of this show and definitely shouldn’t be bragging about changing the writers scripts. To quote the Donald, “you’re fired!” Log in to Reply MsNixon September 28, 2012 Whenever you hear a soap actor bragging about re-writing their scenes, you know a show’s in trouble. No one’s been steering this ship for a long time and it shows. Writers write. Actors act. Cut a line here or there to make the dialogue/scene flow better, okay, but 50% cuts?! From a guy who’s been on set for a minute? A guy who then has the balls to turn around and post about it on a message board and Twitter? I’m not a fan of Jill’s (still pissed about GL) but, boy oh boy, does she have her work cut out for her. Muhney better watch out. He might wake up one day and discover that the role of Adam Newman is now being played by Kale Browne. Log in to Reply lotsophun78 September 28, 2012 I think everyone is reading it as an attack on EB when what MM is saying is it IS ridiculous that TGVN, world renowned business man, famous guy is missing and nobody knows what he looks like. It’s not in the papers. I mean really. Could you imagine Donald Trump just showing up in your town calling himself Christian and no one questions it. The storyline is a bit far fetched. Log in to Reply Restless Vixen September 28, 2012 Not for nothing but JG said in one of his recent interviews (either Nelson Branco or Michael Logan) that they have been allowing the actors to tweak lines from the remaining MAB scripts until they started taping the scripts under the new regime. So MM changing his lines was something that was allowed for all of the actors. Log in to Reply sanka9 September 28, 2012 MM reminds me soo much of VR. Both are unprofessional egomaniacs – i hope JFP muzzles him. If what was tweeted was not an indirect attack then why does he still stay there? However bad MAB was as a writer when MM critiques her work and storylines that Victor is in he is indirectly insulting EB who is a friend of MAB. I dont know why i’m commenting here coz i hate all of them Log in to Reply scrumptious September 28, 2012 “I ended up cutting more than 50% of all of Adam’s dialogue in the final 9-10 shows” Um, that’s way more than a “tweak”, it’s a major rewrite. I’m sure Sharon Case would have loved to have cut 50% of her lines and rewritten all her scripts to her own liking. LMAO. But, clearly, she didn’t, so I doubt all these actors had carte blanche power to do so like Muhney is claiming. I also wonder how Muhney changing 50% of his scripts affects his screen partners. It can be disruptive and throw off production when actors decide to make significant script changes. There is a reason writers write and actors act.

His arrogance on twitter yesterday was disgusting. He made it personal and that was out of bounds. I think EB knows he screwed the pooch, but doesn’t want to acknowledge it, so he tried to take it out on MM, who has always said wonderful things about him in the press. EB must think he is Victor Newman both on and off the set. He’s delusional. EB is a despicable old man that needs to dial his fat ego back.

Kudos to Michael for speaking up about the terrible writing and caring enough that we “the fans” don’t have to suffer recycled stories. Must be jealousy on Eric’s part. Everytime he is on the screen I have to rewind to hear what he says because he mumbles all the time. I guess he is used to recycled storylines and likes them because he doesn’t need to remember any new lines. It doesn’t matter that Michael has been on the show for “only” three years. In my opinion he has carried the show for a long time. Why don’t you retire Mr. Eric Braeden? Being a diva really doesn’t suit you Log in to Reply kathy z September 28, 2012 Like him or not, Muhney has proven himself as an actor in his “mere” 3 years on the show. It’s obvious that he puts his heart and soul into his character. I’ve never seen a soap actor so passionate about the character they play. He has a deep understanding of “Adam” and has always been vocal about his opinions on the writing and s/l…even his own. He has expressed disagreement with several things “Adam” has said and done because its not true to the character. Braeden is another story. He has admitted to “phoning it in” on a regular basis and has a very shallow perspective of “Victor”. He wins in the end. Period. Muhney’s comments on the current s/l were more about the way the other characters responded to VN’s latest “death” than the death itself. I was nauseous. Watching everyone VN has hurt crying and talking about him like he was some kind of saint. It was ridiculous and yes, insulting. And now VN can come back to town with yet another clean slate and be a hero. Please. Muhney is the future of YR. No need to argue and say he isn’t. Just watch and see. Log in to Reply 1titanman September 28, 2012 I’m team Braeden! I will say Victor has died 5 million times, the best time Victor died storyline was; when everybody in Genoa City believe the Great Victor Newman died in 1993. When he was in Kansas with Hope, but shock the citizens in GC. Jill dropped her glass and shatter! However when Victor was sitting in that chair and turned around and Jack damn near had a heart attack! I think Maria was channelling that era, and she failed! Hey Eric Braeden not going to shut up, so I’ve accepted that! However Muhney he get so offended if somebody ask him a question on twitter. Muhney take a shit and shut-up! He in love with himself, Hmmm! Log in to Reply SoapGirl September 28, 2012 Well I guess that explains who wears to be panties over at y&r. Michael M is so correct. I have over 30 y&r shows on my dvr that I refuse to watch because I cannot take anymore of this nonsense. To see everyone in town turning on Sharon and Tucker, even their families are siding with Victor, how insulting indeed to the audience. Just this year victor pulled the same thing on thing on Billy. Everyone thought he was dead while his while his daughter fought for her life. Yet he was not condemned and for the only 2 (Billy and Victoria) who who were outraged, they have since not only forgiven him but have forgotten. This show sucks. Log in to Reply thecourt99 September 28, 2012 So MM gets credit for being passionate about the character that he has played for 3 years, taking ownership and speaking out when something isn’t in character to the point of changing the dialouge 50% (I hope he gets a writing credit)….and EB is a diva for doing the same thing for a 30 year character?

On Twitter some the remarks, statements, accessions toward people MM as made is pure egomaniac at its finest. Sometimes MM has also made some correct statements…but he’s not a daytime veteran of 32 years and criticize story-lines of other actors is not becoming or professional. As mentioned in early post about his own story-lines in question. MM wants the spotlight constantly to shine on him and MAB did that for him.

Now tell me, what would it do fr the genre to ave mediocre actors to win? Nothing. He was just salty. I don’t remember him complaining about the redundant sight loss for Adam. How is Victor’s disappearance any different from that. MM is disgusted because he has been backburned while others have not. He doesn’t like being the “B story”. That is his gripe.

MM is good actor don’t get me wrong but I preferred Chris’s portrayal of Adam better. He gave Adam more depth from the beginning. Log in to Reply tashikins September 30, 2012 Wow. Thought I was the only one. Log in to Reply mango September 30, 2012 [quote=tashikins]Wow. Thought I was the only one.[/quote] You can add another one to the mix. I don’t care for MM in role and preferred CE much more. Log in to Reply tedew October 1, 2012 CE was a good Adam but he quit because he did not like the coming storyline, so what really is the difference? harlee490 … “aggressive and swallow”? Sorry … just couldn’t resist. Log in to Reply RealityCheck 33 October 2, 2012 Perhaps Braeden is as big of an ass as Victor is on the show. Can”t stand the jerk.

His career is toast. So much for his “greatness” and “professionalism”. Log in to Reply email@example.com November 27, 2012 EB is an arrogant S.O.B. He’s so full of himself. Who does he think he is? I can barely stand to see him on screen and hear his voice. I don’t think there is much difference between VN and EB. MM didn’t say anything that most of us watching didn’t feel. Victor’s dead? AGAIN?!? Actually I think it was for the 150th time, Michael – not 148. But who’s counting? Give it a rest EB.

However I would have loved to see Adam as the All American boy Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
