DC #746: Firings and Allegations


On today's Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe, Regan Cellura and Melodie Aikels are back with the first episode of 2014 and there are so many headlines and storylines to discuss!

The Young and the Restless fired Michael Muhney in December, much to the surprise of fans. While no reason was given at the time, during the first week of January, TMZ published allegations Muhney was fired for groping co-star Hunter King. The DC gang dives into the allegations, star reactions, the fallout for Y&R and the giant mess the whole thing has become.

The DC crew then give their First Impressions of Ryan Paevey as General Hospital's newest detective. Sabrina is pregnant, but is the baby Patrick's or Carlos?

Chandler Massey says goodbye to Salem, as Guy Wilson takes over the role of Will Horton on Days of Our Lives this week. What will Sami do when she finds out EJ and Abigail had sex?

Why does everyone on The Bold and the Beautiful shame Brooke for being a slut, when they don't have any room to judge? Ridge reacts to finding out Brooke and Bill were an item.

All this and much more on today’s Daytime Confidential podcast!

    I’m listening now. Good podcast. I think when the dust settles on the MM/HHK drama there will be gag orders all around. It will 2039 before they will be able to publicly talk about it. Look how many years it took Brenda Dickson to finally *break her silence* by writing her book? Sure, she talked a bit about it over the years but they were the ramblings of an idiot and she didn’t go into a lot of detail.

    The same thing with the Michelle Stafford/Victoria Rowell spitting saga.

    Luke you made me choke on my coffee…Sabrina is pregnant and I have never missed Guza more….ROFL

    Who didn’t know Princess Sunshine’s birth control method was gonna be bluebirds sitting on her shoulder after sex? BTW… has Patrick been tested cause he is worse at safe sex than Sonny ever was?

    Jamey speaks the truth!

    If Y&R was good no one would give a shit about the “scandal”!!! The show sucks, the writing is terrible, and the backstage drama is all fans wanna talk about!!!

    Oh my Gawd, you bitches give me *life* with the podcasts!!!!! I laughed so hard my tummy hurts.

    Don’t agree that this wouldn’t be a big story/scandal if Y&R was good right now.

    With all the social media running 24/7, this story would be big no matter HOW great a show was.

    That’s interesting that Jill didn’t get Billy Millers appeal given she’s hired some of the most talentless hair models in recent memory. Again, I don’t think this woman is in touch with her audience.

    I do think Y&R has gotten better since the new writers have taken over. There is still plenty of work to be done to erase all the idiotic plot points the show has gone through but some stuff has been promising.

    Great podcast guys….loved the commentaries about MM and YR. But so right on DOOL…Days is the hottest soap right now and than BB is second for quality and delivering excellent stories.

    As a 40yr. loyal fan of Y&R, seeing Hunter King on the set is too hard for me not to feel resentment towards this inexperienced, young actress! The truth needs to come out to either substantiate the rumors about HK & MM or to refute them. This scandal is dividing fans and I believe will ultimately be the death of Y&R.
    CBS, Sony, Jill Ferren Phelps, Angelica McDaniel fix this and if it means firing the higher ups, then do so. I mean who fires a husband and father of 3 a week before Christmas? This mess needs to be cleared up and resolved; Michael Muhney needs to be reinstated (if at this point he would even willing to come back). Until then, as of Jan. 30th, I’m done. I wash my hands of Y&R. How could you allow this to happen? How could you do this to the fans who have made this show #1 for the past 25 years? How could you?………

    YR will survive and continue and isn’t the death as maybe you might wish and trying to push it as MM savior and HK is the Devil incarnate. MM is gone and I guess you will be too… Sayōnara :)

    This scandal is dividing fans and I believe will ultimately be the death of Y&R.

    The vast majority of the viewers of Y&R don’t know about this, aren’t on the internet and aren’t following this issue.

    This claim is sexual assault and not harassment. Until he is charged with a crime, I’m not believing this. Why isn’t the county prosecutor questioning him? This is a crime that is all over the paper. Bring in the witnesses for questioning.

    Great podcast. Once again, my girl Jillian said exactly what I was thinking. This whole scandal has resulted from there being an unbelievable failure on the part of the show’s public relations team.
