The next generation of the Abbott/Newman feud is headed for a deadly climax on The Young and the Restless. As a guilty, desperate Adam (Michael Muhney) says his goodbyes, Billy (Billy Miller) is locked and loaded. Watch Friday's Y&R sneak peek after the jump! READ MORE
While CBS Daytime was rejoicing over the entire lineup being renewed today, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler was fielding questions about the Michael Muhney scandal. At the 2014 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Tassler had this to say about Muhney's firing from The Young and the Restless and the scandal which ensued following his ouster:
I can’t comment on any of the allegations. I can only say that when the producers and Sony [Pictures Television] came to us and said, ‘We want to make a change,’ and they laid out their reasoning why, we supported them.
Just how bad have things become for The Young and the Restless actors in the aftermath of Michael Muhney's firing? In a post on Facebook to fans, Kristoff St. John compares the implosion at Y&R to the L.A. Riots!
St. John also believes Y&R's actors are now caught in a social media war zone armed "with very little artillery." Read St. John's entire letter to fans after the jump! READ MORE
Outside of his initial interview with Huffington Post Canada and a cryptic quote, Michael Muhney has remained silent about the allegations surrounding his exit from The Young and the Restless. According to Radar Online—which recently published an interview with Eric Braeden on the matter—Muhney is being prohibited from saying anything about Y&R or the cast.
“It’s very frustrating that Eric made these remarks, because Michael has been ordered by Sony and CBS to not discuss anything about the show or cast,” the insider added.
“It’s considered a personnel matter and both are prohibited by terms of their contracts from discussing it."
Unfortunately for Summer Newman (Hunter King), she was born long after Mrs. Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign! Next week on The Young and the Restless, the teen model's life hangs in the balance after she pops some pills at a Jabot fashion shoot.
I expect tons of chest-beating from Summer's two dads, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Jack (Peter Bergman). Let's just hope the certified nurses aides know not to bring Summer a PB & J sandwich.
Elsewhere in Genoa City, Billy (Billy Miller) is thisclose to finding out Adam (Michael Muhney) turned Delia into compost. Watch next week's Y&R promo after the jump!
