Ex-Y&R Star Michael Muhney’s Fans Charter SECOND Plane!

    To borrow a phrase from a classic William Shatner SNL moment, “GET A LIFE, people!”

    This whole mess isn’t a storyline, you don’t get to be “fans” of real life people dealing with real life problems. You need to separate your fandom of the actor’s WORK from things happening in real life that we’ll never be fully privy to.

    Whatever it cost to fly that plane, imagine if that money had gone to a worthy charitable cause instead of to the defense of someone you don’t even personally know. Seriously, think about that for a minute…

    I’m embarrassed for the people that actually paid for that.

    Anyway, this week’s shows have been fantastic and, overall, there has been a marked improvement in dialogue, story and even the music in the last few weeks. Looking forward to February!

    For those who laugh, think we are stupid do not know that this went deeper than a firing. Also money was raised and put towards 2 of Michael Muhney’s charities. Proud of #TeamMuhney!
    BTW..I have a Masters degree, married with 2 beautiful smart children…so I have a life …it wasn’t fair what YR did to Billy Miller and Michael Muhneys life

    To each his own.

    Whats important to one may not be important to me.

    Some people would say following and/or commenting on a soap opera related website is pathetic.

    Live and let live people.

    Personally, I don’t mind the sentiment, but I really have to wonder who would rather put their money on something like this as opposed to getting something nice to eat with that money?

    Is this some kind of online campaign? I haven’t heard anything about a campaign for him online (not that I would ever contribute mind) but if it’s not online how are these fans getting so much money? Two planes aren’t cheap!

    I’m just glad it’s finally 1/30/14.

    And today’s episode did NOT disappoint at all. I just sat there at the end.

    So for the last time, I’ll say that I’ll miss MM, but like every popular actor that quit or was fired before him, YR will go on. He should at least be very proud of his last days work. Good for him.

    And Miller will be missed just as much, if not more. However, I love Tom, and look forward to his take on this older Billy, a character he originated!

    Sadder to see Billy Miller go, than Mike Muhney. Cause Dave Tom is basically young Billy, and he still looks young. I guess the first thing that JFP should do, is look for Ashley Bashoun, and see if she can play Mackenzie Browning, Billy’s first great love.

    It was a good day. Very interesting to see Dylan (the future of The Show), be the ‘commercial breaks’ for the The Real Show (everyone else, also know as the past of The Show) of the unfolding of Adam hitting Delia. And trust me, just saw the episode from Canadian TV, Adam is not….

    Glad that Ian is in the story-line to try to add some interest to Our Orange Friend.

    The part that’s silly to me is “walking out” on a soap.

    I say we support all of our shows.. Ya know?.. what’s left of them!

    Why not fly a plane with a message that wishes him well?..

    This reminds of that first year or so of Big Brother when they would televise all the messages the houseguests received via plane.

    I think I’ll Kickstarter one to fly: Dear God in heaven where’s my mink…

    this is beyond sad and pathetic! Seriously this is such a waste of money, I am sure there are several women shelters for sexual assault victims that could use this money send it there!

    Also if you are this upset stop making fools of yourself just quit watching. This is so embarrassing.

    Oh and if any of these fans think they are helping they are wrong. Y&R will never hire him back, at least not for years and years. But more importantly with all these stunts you bring up what happened again, so instead of letting the story of him being a sexual assaulting perv die down you pull stunts and bring the story right back up.

    Well you are entitled to your own opinion as am I. Ya, we are far from pathetic, only sad that CBS/Y&R have no morals and quite frankly (I cant speak for the rest of #TeamMuhney) do quite well in the getting laid department. Although if those words were your first thoughts you apparently might.

    No need to be sorry or sad, we had a great time raising the money and I’ve met some really great people who stand up for what they believe in, in doing so.

    I sure will miss Billy Miller! He is one fantastic actor! Hope to see him again soon!

    Looking forward to see where this story goes, what happens to Chelsea, Jack & Victor in the fallout. No way am I giving up on my show.

    I think of people that actually go without food or meds & then think that people would actually rather put money towards flying a plane to protest something thats already done & finished! SMH.

    & yes, When are we gonna get a “LIKE” button here??

    Some fans waste their money on traveling to California to see their favorite stars. There was even a backlash when that guy from Duck Dynasty was suspended from the show indefinitely just for speaking his mind off camera. Guess what? The guy’s back on TV! Watch the liberal media ignore every lie of the president and go on about Republicans’ faults to no end. Nothing’s proven about this allegation of MM on HK. Give him his job back or I hope he gets snatched up by DOOL or GH Soon!

    Instead of spending money on something this stupid why don’t they give to a homeless shelter or something like that? This is beyond ridiculous; it’s sad and pathetic.

    How come no one is writing any “why do they keep talking about this” or “why don’t they just let this go” comments? (e.g. Gloria Allred and John Abbott).

    I do find this kind of funny in a sad way.

    I think this was such a waste of Muhney…I mean MONEY! It is a nice show of solidarity, but the money would havr been better spent on a legal defense fund or something to aid in his legal battles. Once his obligations to SONY are done, I imagine he will probably bring a lawsuit to CBS or something. He can also speak more openly.

  19. Profile photo of ldylkng

    I would think the only lawsuit he would have, is if someone leaked something that was in a confidentiality agreement. If he was going to sue for libel or slander “as in he didn’t do what was reported” he would have already done that.
    So I doubt we will see a lawsuit

    If you announce that you are walking, you are also begging to be asked to stay at the same time. By doing so, you have given away your power. People who are really done, don’t announce it. They just move and let their absence speak. Team Muhney needs to just let their absence speak. No one is going to beg them to stay.

    Yeah, there won’t be any lawsuits from him. He did it, he got caught, and he knows all the evidence Sony has. Sony does not take that kind of thing lightly nor do they play softball with employees who are fired for cause and try to sue them over it. If he’s smart, he’ll stay quiet about the whole mess, go to rehab (even if it’s just for show), and slowly try to restart his career in small roles 9-12 months down the line.

    Today’s *ending* was good, but not great to me….likely bc it had been spoiled. Now if it turns out Adam is DEAD or just MISSING so they can bring the character back, it would lead to another re-write down the line. What was clear is that Adam grabbed the gun and it discharged, so Billy didn’t shoot him. My hope is that the real killer turns out to be Kelly and that Billy has slept with the woman who really killed his daughter. If it does go that route, then it will have to be re-written in some way again, since Adam has confessed, talked about a scarf in the wheel well, etc. I’m already bored with the storyline given how it was forced to this ending we saw today.

    The fans speak their minds. As far as the people that say money should be donated to a charity, utter nonsense. This gets attention, a donation gets a shrug. It’s over now. Time to move on.

    Frankly, the Steve Burton scenes today are a glimpse of the future of this show. Tedious and boring. Even Daytime Confidential’s staff rail on about it on their recent podcast. The show sucks. Y&R is serving leftovers and bad writing.

    Phelps is going to run this show into the ground like she’s done to every show she’s run in the past. Just give her time.

    1.) Thurs show was boss, epic, stellar and I’m not a fan of JFP but she did it justice. Even Amelia Henile did a good job.

    2.) I find the banner flying over CBS funny, and I hope they fly another plane again for good measure.

    No other soap will hire Muhney for the foreseeable future. Sony owns both Y&R and Days. GH has a ton of men in their 30s and early 40s. B&B is at CBS.

    Muhney needs to focus on primetime and film for now.

    I am happy MM is gone and boy are these fans misdirected, and I am being kind. Feeding this egomaniac’s ego is not what this guy needs..It is enabling him not to get help for his many mental problems..Let it go and support Huner and the show

    I am always amazed about how people are judgemental and feell a needs to share it ad nuseam.

    You don’t agree so what, who cares. The peope who decided to do so are people who are taking action ans I salute them.
    Sometimes reading the comments here is like being in a sour, it stink.

    I find it more amusing that the people making negative comments on this thread are also the same people who, without any proof or evidence, have Muhney tried and convicted of something NO ONE knows about.

    Some of you even say it about the people who chartered the plane…that they have no idea what happened blah blah blah.

    You dont have to like what these people did but it meant something to them and they reacted. Roll your eyes all you want.

    In the end, you can say we ALL need lives if we are ALL still talking about this.

    Hypocritical much people?

    I just think the message is dumb. Walking out soaps is silly. They’ve “been there” for us.. & they aren’t going anywhere.. even though there are so few left..

    I just think the message should have wished him well.. or stated that they’ll miss him..

    I thought one plane was bad but two?? SMH. I’m so glad that January 30th is here!! Hopefully,we can get back to the actual soap without all the incessant whining and complaining about MM and the “injustice” of his firing. Stop with the online tantrums and MOVE ON.

    I really still don’t get how his fans can call themselves fans when these stunts keep the story going. It was dying down, he’d just have to wait it out for a while and he probably could have gotten another job. However, the fans pull this stupid stunt and bam why he was fired is back out there making it harder for anyone to look at casting him (although I personally find him overrated, wasn’t that impressed with his scenes with Billy Miller, BM also overrated).

    Fans need to shut up so the story can go away, if you are truly walking today then don’t tune in not that hard. Honestly this stuff keeps it being talked about but actual rating numbers gets noticed by people in the industry in a positive way. Plane just reminds everyone he was fired for groping a girl.

    I agree, the soap community is very small and most of the producers and writers etc. all either know each other or worked together in some capacity.

    Even though the public may never know what happened behind the scenes it is most likely the other show runners do.

    He needs to focus on avenues outside of daytime.

    Michael Muhney will not ever be nor probably ever want to be on Y&R again. You guys are living in some sort of fantasy world and if Mr Muhney’s involved then you all are.

    He’s gone, get over it and just wait with baited breath for his next incarnation.

    I’m fascinated that people are willing to support an actor to this extent considering the allegations that caused his ousting.

    Good riddance. Seems he’s been a “problem child” BTS for a long time. I bet the rest of the cast breathed a huge sigh of relief the minute he walked out the door box ‘o stuff in hand the last time.

    Ain’t no silly plane banner bringing him back. As someone else mentioned, it just feeds his already enormous ego and keeps the unsavory allegations floating. Neither of which is a good thing for their beloved.

    Fans like this need to wake up. Just because he tweeted you or acknowledged you on a message board does not mean you know him. I wonder if these same fans would believe he did anything wrong if they witnessed it with their own eyes. :~

    Good God! Thanks goodness MM is gone and buried, he’ll never return to YR. Let us move on and enjoy what is on screen and hopeful with Jean’s actual stories now coming aboard we will have a better more entertaining YR to crow to the masses.

    The last two weeks of YR have been fantastic, it truly warms my heart :love: and sigh of relief. :O When episodes without Dylan (rare) YR is so much better to watch because we have more vets on TV it seems that day. Its vibe of the show feels like YR. :bigsmile:

    This! Thanks for saving me the keystrokes because I was just about to type the same thing.

    Considering this isn’t the first show that Muhney has been fired from “for cause” then maybe Team Muhney should just save up for the next inevitable train wreck. Because as long as his ‘issues’ are enabled, supported and applauded, there may be other opportunities if someone takes a chance on hiring him down the road.

    harlee490 … I also view the Canadian broadcasts a day early because that is where I live so I can.

    However, I have more than once suggested that the viewing pleasure of others not be ruined. It’s hard to keep secrets but showing off is not usually fair either.
