HomeTVCBSDoug Davidson on Michael Muhney’s Y&R Firing: “There’s More to The Story” Jillian Bowe December 18, 2013 CBS, News, Soap Opera, The Young and The Restless 65 Comments Could Jill Farren Phelps' hands be clean in Michael Muhney's (ex-Adam) firing from The Young and the Restless? According to Doug Davidson (Paul), they are. Davidson took to Twitter to assure fans Y&R's controversial executive producer was not behind Muhney being released from the show. He also said there was "more to the story". Davidson tweeted: "There is more to the story" seems to be Y&R's mantra these days… 65 Responses AZLiam December 18, 2013 I like Doug, but it’s funny how he automatically went there (addressing JFP and whether or not she was involved). It seems that even actors acknowledge and are aware of JFP’s reputation and the damage she’s done to daytime television. Even if she isn’t directly involved in this one situation, she’s done too much damage in the past to be redeemed in my eyes or be considered terrific. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 December 18, 2013 Y&R NEVER was and probably NEVER will be a team sport. There is no other Daytime soap where so many egos are involved. Y&R is the show with the most backstage drama. Bullying, fighting, scheming, spiting – doesn’t sound like a team. More like a group of crazy people. I wouldn’t wonder if something did go down. Muhney once again spoke his mind and he got fired for it. Shouldn’t be too hard on that show. Log in to Reply stefanstavros December 18, 2013 Interesting choice of word (terrific) he used to describe JFP. From the website Stackexchange, “According to EtymOnline: 1660s, “frightening,” from L. terrificus “causing terror or fear,” from terrere “fill with fear” (see terrible) + root of facere “to make” (see factitious). Weakened sensed of “very great, severe” (e.g. terrific headache) appeared 1809;” LOL! Log in to Reply Blue Skies and Palomino Ponies December 18, 2013 Devastated. Truly, I don’t want a rep as a drama manufacturer on this site or anywhere else in my life, but this news is one of the only things that could get me to make that “I’m jumping ship from watching!” declaration. Like all of you, I’ve hung in for a long time, riding out the changes, the turbulence, the stories that get dropped or are ludicrous or insulting to my intelligence as a long time fan, but for me, Michael Muhney has been a consistent reason to do so. I know some disagree with me, and I fully accept that no individual carries or makes this show, but he was something really, really special to watch. So many times I thought that his character had been painted into a corner, so many times, Muhney got Adam out of that corner by showing some vulnerability, or by giving TGVN some well-deserved comeuppance, or through performances like those he’s given in the wake of Delia’s death. I love this show, I’m reacting fresh from this shock, but I consider this a very significant blow. Log in to Reply LaDivaYR December 18, 2013 Kiss my ass, Davidson! You and your fellow AGING divas (LeBlanc, Braeden, DYLDO BURTON, etc.) can’t stand the competition. Michael Muhney is the *best* actor on the show and that kills you. I told y’all before, and I’ll say it again, JFP will do anything to protect and showcase her DYLDO. The day she hired Steve Burton was the beginning of the end. First La Stafford, then Billy Miller, now Muhney. And you betcha she’s not done yet! Oh well, I’m sure Muhney will land somewhere else. Y&R on the other hand, will continue to decline into DYLDO-oblivion. Bah! Log in to Reply timepass December 18, 2013 Great post LaDiva! DD is brown nosing JFP he nose who is in charge.

Log in to Reply bobbyew December 18, 2013 LaDiva Explains it All!!! All the time. That is my sentiment exactly. Michael Muhney Exuded Adam Newman. As long as he wasn’t fist fighting other cast members. One of the last few great actors on that show should still be there. I am out done and so sad. He was my favorite. As he laid in that bed the other day with Chelsea half naked all I could do was Swoon. JF hack up a show P, Sony, Angelica McDaniel and the rest of the PTB really ought to be ashamed. To wake up and get my daily dose of DC and read this is mind blowing. I thought they had a handle on it with these past couple of weeks. As and EP you should be able to look past an actors antics and look at the talent they bring to your show. If you can’t write around them and give them the time off they need. Something is wrong with you. That is why they have contractual outs, time off and holiday pay. In the news industry some people get a month off. As a soap star on the number one soap, as a major character, you should be able to do what ever the Fuck you wanna do as long as it is not messing with your productivity and your ability to bring that story to life in a major way.

Went to see family this past weekend for early Christmas, I set the dvr for episodes Monday’s a boring, blah mess after a good Friday episode, Tuesday better was tolerable and come back on the site never dreamed all the horrific news slamming me in the face! :O watched last night! MM is a deep lost YR, big ego & big mouth but always present in his acting…I believe Doug, maybe not Phelps doing the deed…but when 3 actors come out with the same kind message from YR actors how they are a team & “love the fans”…reassurance mode…but this behavior showing now through the actors and they know how fans & viewers are hating YR direction starting w\JFP and her team of GH merry bandits. Sensing displeasure from fans…hmmm WOW! Log in to Reply Yoryla December 18, 2013 Phah, yeah right. Of course he’s going to say that. He’s an over 50 y.o. actor and could easily be killed off or worse. Working under JFP he’s lucky to still even be there, in fact I’m surprised he is. At some point last year I was certain DD would be next to get the axe. However, with JFP you never know, as we all know she ain’t afraid to fire anyone, just for the shock value and kicks she could straight to the jugular and axe Eric Braeden. I’m sure she not only is not afraid of the outrage, she love it. I think she actually loves the knowledge of being the most hated person in soaps, crazy that she is, it makes her feel powerful. Kind of like the bully in the schoolyard. MTS is only there now because of Dylan, and nothing else. She is like the Bobbie to GH’s Carly. If DD has some luck on his side, there’s a chance he could slide half-unnoticed with the rest of the cast and be kind of like the John J. York of Y&R. Oh and btw, A bow to Queen LaDiva!

Get the popcorn and mimosas ready! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 December 18, 2013 The most popular opinion when all this ends will be that it’s Muhney’s fault. So much we know already. No matter what exactly happened or for the reason that it got to that point, Muhney will be the only one blamed here. I’m sure of it! Who else would there be? JFP clearly has to be innocent, Sony and CBS never did anything wrong and Muhney’s co-stars are the most perfect team players in Daytime. Yeah, since no one is left, it had to be Muhney.

How sad, what has happened to Bill Bell’s legacy. Log in to Reply Marcelle December 18, 2013 JFP has a history of firing for shock value, and MM has a history for being fired for his behind the scenes antics (see: Veronica Mars. They even went so far as to kill his character off in an incredibly stupid way.). We may never know the truth.

Eric Braeden put his toe in the water last night and had his head handed to him. This stinks to high heaven. Christian LeBlanc is a total phony.

How much ya wanna bet Sharon Case is next on the chopping block? Yes MM has been outspoken at times but he can act rings around the other ‘actors’ on that show. Billy Miller and MM were by far their two best actors. Some were ecstatic when Stafford got the ax but I new it was just the beginning. Very sad. Grandpa Braeden is celebrating now but he won’t be laughing next time his contract is up for renewal. It will get nasty again. DD better watch his back too..

Earlier this year, when Muhney inked a new contract, he said it was until “June 2015.” That would indicate that his 26-week cycles are in December, and more than likely why his last taping dates absolutely had to be this week or he would step-into a new cycle.

Log in to Reply tdrice December 18, 2013 Davidson is already starting the drama with his support for JFP. I didn’t even see one post or comment made by Muhney blaming this horrid EP. Mobutu then again Davidson & Co seen how she ran GH to Almirante cancelation so they know if they want a job, a storyline then they need to kiss some butt. JPH and Guza ruined GH, and she will do the same with Y&R. what a poor business decision it wad to bring an EP from a downward spiraling show on board. Then to hire Steve Burton, I will thank her for that because it keeps him off GH, and GH is a better show with him gone. How long before will it take for Bradford Anderson’s plan make a layover in Genoa City on his way to Seattle or Portland or where ever Ellie and he are moving to. I feel bad for the Y&r fans because she will ruin your show…. Good attempt at trying to keep your Jon Mr. Davidson, just remember JFP does not like older veteran characters, so your days are numbered, and pray to god Maurice Bernard doesn’t eventually make his way there ( another loss GH could easily handle) Log in to Reply tedew December 19, 2013 Why do these guys make vague tweets on things that have stirred up a huge firestorm???

Log in to Reply Restless Fan December 19, 2013 I don’t think Davidson’s tweets were underhanded in any way. Fact: Twitter blew up! Y&R was trending. People were fired up and I think Davidson, along with Morrow and Hienle were trying to calm people the fuck down. Muhney has taken responsibility for what happened and it validates what the actors were saying. That we didn’t know the whole story. I think its sad he got canned. I follow MM on twitter and enjoy reading his posts. He’s very frank in a sarcastic way, which I love. He puts his heart out there and TV execs don’t like that. They want happy Stepford doormat and He is not that. MM has told more than a few fans if they don’t like his tweets they can stop following him, LOL. He also been super gracious for having the fans. If he likes a fellow actors work he says it. When EB came out attacking Sharon Case he swung back in her defense. He opened up the most on twitter about the changes the show went through, especially during the regime change. I respected that a lot. He was a big cheerleader for the show. He did a classy exit interview with Nelson Branco. Kept it clean. Accepted fault in it. He was very gracious for having had the opportunity to play Adam for 4 1/2 years. Had nice things to say about his working relationship with JFP. He seemed humbled by the termination. Regretful he let his feelings get the better of him where the line between Michael and Adam got blurry. I think his interview did more for him than anyone in recent memory because he’s been the only so far to have the balls to say He screwed up. Can you imagine how much more trustworthy people like Jill would come across if they could just admit when they screw up? There are lessons to be learned on both sides. Log in to Reply pjc722 December 19, 2013 If there is more to the story THAN RELEASE AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT. Calm the fans down. Sure, maybe this came from above or came about because of Muhney and his overabundance of speaking out that had exec’s finally tired, or maybe a famous actor had an ax to grind or whatever the case. But get AHEAD of the story and not behind it trying to catch up! I’ve been in companies where my bosses have been fired or even the president and IMMEDIATELY they tell us what’s going on because HR knows that silence only fuels discord and gossip and unhappiness. CBS/SONY/BELL PRODUCTIONS/JILL FAR”from a saint”EN PHELPS – release a statement that relaxes the masses before the likes of EW or news media pick it up and youre having to defend the FIRING AT CHRISTMAS to more than the soap world.

I am guessing, having a 4 year contract with Y and R, isn’t worth the paper it is written on. I thought having a contract, meant honoring it, but am guessing, not so with YR.

What a waste, you have destroyed Sharon Newmans character. Gotten rid of Billy Abbott??? Are you kidding me? For what? To benefit who? CBS?SONY? I don’t think so, Billy Miller and Michael Muhney have been carrying this show, fresh blood that appeal to all demographics but especially to the 18-49 crowd. This Production company is firing fan favorites under the guise of saving money to keep the show on the air. They are not saving money, they are saving EGOS!

But seriously, I didnt think there was conspriracy at CBS over Mike Muhney’s firing, until DD piped up, ‘Dont blame JPF. Now I know there is.” I hope that Paul Williams is written off next week. The Show is as boring as hell. Give Cynthia Watros a huge role as Kelly to save the damn sinking ship. Kyle and Noah arguing at Grandpa Newman’s desk? Yawn bore. Christine and Paul ‘poring’ over notes about Carmine’s murder? Boring. To think 2 years ago, we were watching Nikki trip over herself, slugging down vodka, as she divorced Deacon. On the other side of town, Patty was stalking Jack, and was unknown as Genevieve’s maid. Meanwhile, Sharon and Adam were having sex on his desk at Newman on New Year’s. MAB, you did a great job! Log in to Reply RealityCheck 33 December 20, 2013 This morning on twitter, you can quickly see two opposite examples of humanity from the cast of Y&R. Sharon Case posted three great pictures of Michael Muhney and herself from their Shadam days. One was tagged “friend”. She is the only member of the cast to do this. Melissa Claire Egan did wish both MM and Billy Miller a farewell late last night. Then there’s Eric Braeden, the remarkable egotistical bully that he so proudly wears on his sleeve. He made a veiled nasty comment about MM being a liar and coward, then bid Billy Miller a gushing farewell. This guy is a despicable sub-human.

Jill Firing Phelps is all but too trigger happy especially around the holidays. They are all butt kissers that’s for sure. They don’t want to be next. DD hasn’t had much to do since she took over. We barely see him, and when we do, he’s not doing much. He’s lucky he won that Emmy when he did because that will most likely be the last time he ever leads a story. Regardless of this firing, JFP has been working her magic of destroying a soap since she started. Beginning with the hiring of Burton. If she thinks his dull as dishwater character is what the viewers what to see, she is delusional!!!! MM was a draw to the show. After he leaves I have no doubt he will take many of his fans with him.

Fans want to hear what happened, but when it’s not what they want to hear they cry out. Be careful what you wish for.

Funny how Dougie dummied up later. This guy calls himself a Christian, laughable. He’s more of a character assassin.

Log in to Reply Bettina February 5, 2014 I agree with all being said, and I wanted the closure on Adams’ death so I watched todays’show, and when I heard the way “Chloe’s” character was talking about “Adam”, what a bitch (hateful writing guys)give Adams character some dignity & find that it was someone else who killed Delia not Adam. That way Chelsey and Connorwon’t be outcasts in GC. Let me know how it turns out because I don’t plan to watch unless a miracle happens, and they bring back Michelle Stafford, Michael Mulaney, and Billy Miller!
