Y&R’s Kristoff St. John Implores Michael Muhney: “Please Set The Record Straight”





Kristoff St. John is the latest The Young and the Restless veteran to set off a social media firestorm following the canning of Michael Muhney (ex-Adam). Early this morning, the actor who plays Neil Winters on the CBS Daytime soap tweeted Muhney:




St. John's tweet was retweeted 62 times and had 68 favorites. However, like Melody Thomas Scott's (Nikki) initial tweet about the situation—which was republished in the Jan. 20 issue of Soap Opera Digest and cited on the cover—it has been deleted.

    See here we go again. Maybe MM just can’t legally set the record straight at this point. The assumptions and name calling here and the silence there is annoying; it is the company that should issue some sort of logical and clear statement.

    Sounds like the suck ass that plays Neil, just like the one that plays Victor, are sucking up to to make sure they don’t offend their boss. None of the actors on the show, should be making any tweets or stating any comments. They are all out of line and should have had the standard, “NO COMMENT” regardless of what happened or didn’t happen. Sounds to me as though they are all afraid of losing their jobs.

    Good for him! The vitriol by these MM fans directed at HK and so many others has been beyond awful and needs to stop. Frankly at this point I can’t wait for January 30th when hopefully all these fans will finally let it go and we can go back to just watching the show again.

    This has gone beyond ridiculous and just a little bit tacky. At this point, it just seems as though Y&R could nicely ask their actors–contract and otherwise–to stay mum on the subject until further investigation is done or until the show itself makes some sort of statement. Next thing you know a day player who was in the background at the Athletic Club–on the one day a week when there actually is an extra–will be sounding off about Muhney, what a douche he is and why he was fired. I just don’t get it.

    I get that Kristoff St. John put that out there but why just call out Michael Muhney? Why not also call out Hunter King? So far as I read, she’s the other party. Why not call on her to tell her side of the story even if all she says is “I can’t talk about it”? My thinking is if you’re going to bring this up on Twitter, ask both sides to comment, not just the person who has been portrayed as the villain.

    I don’t mind him reaching out to MM. Because maybe if MM does say something in regards to HK, then those that have been attacking her will FINALLY GO AWAY. And hopefully stay away.

    Please just stop talking about it already. I’m sorry to say but it is none of these people’s business. All these statements are just adding fuel to the fire on Twitter. Plus there are always going to be ignorant twits in that place anyway who will make up things they can throw in people’s faces. So the other thing is not to be so sensitive, I mean, if people cared about some of the things that go on in there you could be on Twitter at all. Let it go and don’t think about it anymore.

    And besides, Michael Muhney is under no obligation to make any sort of a statement, he has already lost his job and that’s enough. He can make a statement at some point in the future if he wants to and feels a need for it.

    Michael Muhney and Hunter King are the only ones behaving appropriately in this whole mess. I’m sure that CBS, Sony and their own legal counsels have told them to keep mum and not to feed the fire. It shouldn’t have gone public and the other actors need to keep their noses out of things that don’t concern them.

    Old Caribbean proverb: When a fish tells you there’s a crocodile at the bottom of the river, why wouldn’t you believe?

    However, I’ll say again that these Y&R fish are really not doing themselves or anybody else any good by talking about this alleged sexually-harassing crocodile.

    Why would anybody expect for HK to speak out? She did not put her name out there. She has also given no interviews or made any public statements about any of this. MM didn’t have to make a public announcement or interview about being fired but he chose to do that. He also chose to be all mysterious and coy about whether EB had him fired when he already knew that his behavior was responsible. It is MM and his fellow unhinged fans who caused this firestorm. HK didn’t throw any sparks or logs on that fire. For all the fans knew, Adam’s exit could have been storyline dictated but MM made a point of manipulating his fans with half of a story.

    I hope that HHK hasn’t been on her Twitter account since this whole thing has broken. To look on my timeline and see the level of vitriol that she must have gives me shivers. So maybe KSJ knows that and that is why he didn’t call her out on Twitter.

    I can’t fault MM for giving an exit interview–fan speculation would’ve been even worse if he hadn’t–but I can fault whoever leaked poor HK’s name to the public, and as for TPTB @ Y&R, why didn’t they put a moratorium on all press by the actors? Why can Eric Braden and ghost Jon Abbott and a cast of thousands feel free to drop hints & innuendos at every turn? Y&R has really lost control of their publicity machine, and poor HK is suffering for it. And if MM happens to be innocent of this, he should sue someone IMO.

    @jpp1975 whoever leaked HHK’s name should be fired. Victims of sexual assault’s names are always suppose to be classified for their protection.

    I honestly think these actors wouldn’t have spoken had the hate not been sent to HHK. They would have just let it go, but everyone even MM’s love interests are tweeting or retweeting support to HHK. I mean people calling her a whore, wishing she was raped? That is going to get people to respond.

    I also think had MM or NB not leaked that story about EB to Radar and made drops in the exit interview that it was EB’s fault or that EB had MW fired for not sleeping with him, he would have been quiet.

    MM had a right to do an exit interview, but he dragged EB and MW into it. He shouldn’t have done that. I mean EB got mad at Neil Patrick Harris and went after him, like they are even in the same league so of course EB would not take that well. And don’t even get me started on poor MW who shot the rumor MM and NB tried to spread.

    If people don’t like seeing MM getting turned on by his co workers, then they need to stop attacking a 20 year old girl.

    @really, I didn’t mean to imply that HK was anything but an innocent victim, & I didn’t mean the statements of support for her shouldn’t have been made; it’s great her costars are trying to counteract those awful tweets/comments. Sorry it that was unclear. I just meant that things like EB’s interview seem to fan the flames at HK’s expense, not help her. Almost like he’s saying what MM did to him is as bad as what people are saying MM did to her. And you’re right, whoever leaked her name SHOULD be fired.

    It started with all the attacks on JFP. When the stars started defending her, tweeting about the real story, it was clear practically everyone working on the show knew what it was. Now a Y&R star can’t tweet without someone bringing attacking HK. It’ll die down after Jan 30th.

    I can’t believe publicizing the backstage antics of any show is good publicity. It seems to undermine the professionalism of the show, especially one from a genre that for years has had to work doubly hard to be respected. I would love to know some of my favorite soap actors, but this is almost too personal and really what business is it of mine? I am part of the audience. I tune in to see characters on screen as it provides a break from my own reality not to intermingle things based from off screen rumblings to heighten my viewing experience. In fact it kind of ruins it.

    I feel reporting this encourages these performers, speaking candidly about contracts, who they get along with at their job, when that is nothing that we need to know. I admit that I am more interested in personal testimonies like some of the things the late Jeanne Cooper came forward about in her battling addiction, or Andrea Evans sharing her cancer battle; maybe how Beth Maitland fought weight in a business that objectifies women. This makes celebs relatable, establishes equal ground, it makes them people. Yeah I know strife in the work place is relatable too but in this case it just gets perceived as a bunch of petty (and in this case pretty) people bitching about status, entitlement.

    It’s like the movie “Soapdish”.

    Next week I expect to hear comments from the guy who played the homeless man on the Christmas episode, the actress who played Delia and I’m sure Jamie Lyn Bauer who hasn’t set foot on the set in over 30 years will have to weigh in!

    If Braeden, Douglas and St. John had kept their mouths shut the story would have started to die down. They have added fuel to the fire to keep the story burning for 3 more days.

    In the end Muhney is going to benefit from this. CBS & Sony are obviously not reigning in their employees and it now looks like he is becoming the “victim”. He was punished by losing his job. That is a major punishment. Everyone else now needs to go about their jobs and shut up.

    What an embarrassment to the show, and to a show that I have watched for decades. I also want to add that any attacks on JFP could very possibly be a result of her horrible track record when it came to firing many actors on shows that she helped to destroy. The one that immediately comes to mind is Anna Lee. Just for that, JFP will never be redeemed in my eyes nor many other veteran viewers of daytime television and as far as I’m concerned, I have no respect for anyone who feels they need to defend that woman or her actions.

    Moving along, I do not condone (if true) what MM is being accused of. However, it is not the job of actors like EB, DD, MTS, and KSJ (among others) to do damage control for their show. They were hired to act (spend some energy improving that) and not do PR damage control for things that do not involve them. I haven’t attacked them before, but frankly, they are coming across as selfish individuals and I now view them as ugly people and weak “victims” for adding fuel to the fire. If they can’t take the heat of Hollywood or fans with opposing opinions or views, perhaps it’s time for them retire. They are certainly entitled to their opinions and views, but it is the job of CBS, Sony, and TPTB at Y&R to “set any record straight”. Right now, it seems that the most damage being done to the Y&R brand is a result of actors currently on the show, not ones who have been fired.

    Thanks for your years of entertaining Y&R, but as of right now, no thanks. You are permantly off of my viewing schedule. I know I am only one measly viewer, but Rome wasn’t built in a day (yet it burned rather quickly).

    I knew what you were saying and I agree they shouldn’t talk. However, I have never heard of Y&R people not talking. I also think NB and MM poked the bear that was EB and even though he shouldn’t talk there was no way he wasn’t going to.

    Yes EB definitely made it worse, however, I can’t say I blame these actors for coming to the defense of a 20 year old girl who is getting such hate. Honestly, when soap bloggers instantly went on there JFP is evil rant they set this up for people to respond.

    HHK’s name should have never been released. I hope in the future when something happens soap press/bloggers get some facts before they react. Fans will always react but if it had been handled from go by the soap press/bloggers with facts instead of instant reaction I think a lot of this wouldn’t have come out.

    I agree with the poster who said this is so tacky. All the comments from the actors and the horrible PR from Sony/CBS it actually helps MM and the young girl look good now!

    So sad that Y&R was always the classiest soap on TV for decades with talented actors, and with the classy William Bell behind the scenes. NOw we have the horrible Jill Farren Phelps who ends up ruining the soaps she works on, and the horrible people at Sony/CBS.

    The actors commenting all seem to want to join the bandwagon and ride the publicity train. So sad and tacky especially when it is about an alleged sexual harassment and it’s from everyone but those involved. Sigh.

    And nothing about the fact that Sony or CBS leaking the story and Hunter’s name to TMZ also. Something fishy here. Jill Farren Phelps seems to have scared her actors so bad that they will do all of her bidding. I know people want to keep their jobs but please just stay quiet. CBS and Sony PR are doing a horrible job with this, they are allowing the actors to do it. Is the cost cutting that bad there?

    For those stating that Sony or CBS should issue a statement on this matter, that likely will never happen. Why should they issue a statement on any of this. It is a personnel matter and unless they truly want to have an exposure in a liability suit, they will surely keep quiet. As for casts and crew and others, they can’t force anyone to be quiet. They can ask them to make no comment, but it can be enforced, as they are not the direct parties involved in the allegation. The alleged victim is NOT speaking, as people are noticing. That is in her best interest. As for Michael Muhney, the information coming directly from him is limited. Lawyers would likely prefer he does not respond at all, but seems he has not been able to resist at least saying something, no matter how cryptic.

    Everyone should rest assure that Sony has its information on this and will not have any trouble defending their position. Guaranteed.

    Finally, the comments surrounding the soap press vs. mainstream. It has always been the case where the soap press protects its own (i.e. soap actors and shows), whereas the mainstream media coverage has always exposed the tawdry scandals in the vast majority of the cases. This goes back forever. However, in the 21st century it is not feasible to do so bc of the blurred lines in coverage of tabloid and gossip-zines like TMZ and Radar and others. These folks cover any and all high profile scandals, not just A-list Hollywood and Sports Celebrities. The soap press should cough it up as soon as they get wind of it, less they will always be taking a backseat to being upstaged by these other outlets.

    How selfish KSJ can you get? Did you not get enough of this nastiness earlier in the month? What good comes out of this kind of grand standing? Then he calls him “Bro”, that’s rich. How insulting.

    Are these Y&R actors actually as stupid as they are demonstrating by their actions this past week?

    Even though I’ve watched the show for decades, I’ve never actually considered Y&R to be the best written soap with the best actors – kind of like how I don’t equate some of the winners of “Dancing with the Stars” as being the best dancers. Thanks to its time slot (IMO) and having PIR as a lead-in for years, Y&R has had bragging rights as the most-watched soap for a long time. I guess some of those actors have let that get to their heads and feel that they can say, do, and act however they wish…yawn.

    I love the irony of posters saying that soap stars should not be allowed to discuss this matter. If the actors want to speak on the matter and they have not been warned by TPTB, then they have every right to speak. The main reason some posters are against the stars speaking out is because the more information that comes out, the more Muhney looks like a jerk.

    I wish the actors would stop talking because most of what they’re saying is along the lines of “Michael Muhney is a jerk.” That’s not helpful. The whole soap world, except for his most blinkered fans, pretty much knows that already.

    For a variety of reasons, I don’t expect the following to happen; but if they said something like “I personally witnessed or was told by those who witnessed Mr. Muhney’s improper conduct towards a certain young actress”, that would directly address the issue at hand and would perhaps be more convincing…for some people.

    Despite the scandal, the show is having some of its highest ratings in years. So none of this really seems to matter. :)

    He compared the drama behind the scenes of Y&R to the LA Riots? What–is he high?!? I read most of his FB post but couldn’t read all of it because it sounded like a Storm Trooper trying to tell me how great it is to fall in line and never question Darth Vader. If KSJ is as big as a kiss a@@ as Neil Winters, then I can’t find an ounce of pity for an actor who ‘chooses’ to stay in an environment like that. And what does knowing each others families have anything to do with being a hot mess to your co-workers at work? This isn’t harmony, it’s disharmony. And why are these people outside of MM and HK talking about what may/may not have happened? What gives Rikaart the authority to ‘fight back’ against Twitter fans who have an opinion or belief he doesn’t like — is Kevin’s chipmunk suit in Greg’s closet at home? :|

    Evoking the name of Bill Bell Sr didn’t help KSJ’s FB rant/cause either. Yes, Mr. Bell Sr. had some great storylines and supported diversity…God rest his soul and good on him. However what about what’s happening today? A good legacy is one thing, but a bad reputation is quite another matter in itself, and Y&R has an awful reputation of cattiness and backstabbing amongst its behind the scenes cast and crew.

    I’m tired of watching this show for the rare genie in the bottle storyline that may catch my attention, and sadly, the one genie in the character I looked forward to watching was Adam Newman, especially when he stuck it to Victor, and watching MM portray both good and evil in a bad guy like Adam.

    Now, what are my options post-MM (Adam)?

    A. Watch Kevin pursue Chloe…again
    B. Watch Leslie leave Neil at the altar
    C. Watch Dylan and Ms. Souffle googly eye each other with that sappy song
    D. Watch Nikki run to Paul…again, about Ian Ward

    He compared the drama behind the scenes of Y&R to the LA Riots? What–is he high?!? I read most of his FB post but couldn’t read all of it because it sounded like a Storm Trooper trying to tell me how great it is to fall in line and never question Darth Vader. If KSJ is as big as a kiss a@@ as Neil Winters, then I can’t find an ounce of pity for an actor who ‘chooses’ to stay in an environment like that. And what does knowing each others families have anything to do with being a hot mess to your co-workers at work? This isn’t harmony, it’s disharmony. And why are these people outside of MM and HK talking about what may/may not have happened? What gives Rikaart the authority to ‘fight back’ against Twitter fans who have an opinion or belief he doesn’t like — is Kevin’s chipmunk suit in Greg’s closet at home? :|

    Evoking the name of Bill Bell Sr didn’t help KSJ’s FB rant/cause either. Yes, Mr. Bell Sr. had some great storylines and supported diversity…God rest his soul and good on him. However what about what’s happening today? A good legacy is one thing, but a bad reputation is quite another matter in itself, and Y&R has an awful reputation of cattiness and backstabbing amongst its behind the scenes cast and crew.

    I’m tired of watching this show for the rare genie in the bottle storyline that may catch my attention, and sadly, the one genie in the character I looked forward to watching was Adam Newman, especially when he stuck it to Victor, and watching MM portray both good and evil in a bad guy like Adam.

    Now, what are my options post-MM (Adam)?

    A. Watch Kevin pursue Chloe…again
    B. Watch Leslie leave Neil at the altar
    C. Watch Dylan and Ms. Souffle googly eye each other with that sappy song
    D. Watch Nikki run to Paul…again, about Ian Ward
    E. Watch Victor plot to destroy Jack Abbott…again
    F. Watch Michael hug the chills from Lauren’s PTSD about Carmine…again
    G. Watch Det. Chavez be revealed as a possible drug kingpin
    H. Watch Chelsea sketching her anger away while burping Connor
    I. Watch the drying paint ‘marriage issues’ between Chris and Paul
    J. Watch Devon solve the problem of the main course each day
    K. Watch Jill stare at the musicbox, Kay’s sketch, the drapes, carpet..
    L. Watch a framed photo of Delia appear and stupid afterlife music playing
    M. Watch scenes of Kelly looking like a meth addict at Crimson Lights…again
