While keeping relatively silent since being let go from CBS’ “” in early December, actor  (ex-Adam Newman) was reportedly spotted on the CBS Television Studios based set of the daytime drama series recently, reports Soap Opera Digest in its June 9 issue.

“Insiders report that Michael Muhney could be back in the mix to reprise the role,” the magazine says in its reporting, after noting that the search to find a replacement has intensified. “The actor, whose controversial exit last December sent shockwaves through the soap community, was reportedly spotted at the ‘Y&R’ studios.”

When pressed for comment on the matter by the magazine, a show spokesperson said, “We don’t comment on rumors or contract status.”

  • Bexx

    Doubtful. Both he and CBS would be pathetic.

    • Tommy

      I am no MM fan but it could be the sign of a shakeup and the blame game. I personally do not attribute the ratings loss to any one actors departure but more to a stylistic change.

      • Bexx

        While I do agree with many of the ‘sane’ Y&R fans that JFP should be let go along with Jean Passanante, I do not believe any sort of shakeup warrants his return. There will always be viewers who believe that a young girl threw herself onto a married man, then lied after she was rejected, and there will be other viewers who believe that she was violated by him. Either way you look at it, it sends the wrong message.

        There is no way to spin him coming back after such a blowout affected the entire cast. He sat idled while Hunter was bombarded with death threats and abuse by his female fans. CBS is better off fixing the current problems with Y&R that they have now, rather than adding to them.

        • Tommy

          Well put. I agree.

          • Bexx

            :-)

          • sherwood

            Agreeing with yourself again? Talk about posting under false names. LOL.

          • Bexx

            Mods take note that I am being harassed.

            I see what, one post from you, and Sherwood. LOL You should really stop flagging post because you can’t handle my opinion.

          • sherwood

            You’re laughable. You harass everyone on this board with your insults. Actually, I’ve grown bored with you little man. I’m tired of your insane non-sense.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            There you go switching between your multiple usernames.

            STOP harassing me!!!

          • Carol Williams

            I got the same feeling Sherwood.

          • RedRiver38

            So true.

        • Whitney

          I see you saying MM fans are the obsessed ones and should fight for a better cause, yet you are the only one who has commented on almost every comment being nasty to people on this site because apparently others shouldn’t have an opinion if it doesn’t go with what you think? It says a lot about you that you think Michael Muhney should have came out to stick up for Hunter who was at the center of his reputation being destroyed, being fired, he could have lost his family and friends,she had an active part in trying to destroy his life…-and it says a lot about him that so many people stood by him because they knew he didnt do it (and I am not talking about fans who do not know him personally). She is a grown woman who could have said this did or didn’t happen she chose not to do that because she knew lying would affect her career and reputation, but by being silent she could just skate through it. It was the men on the cast who had the most problems with him because they were threatened, that is the bottom line. I am sure you will keep commenting, enjoy looking like a crazy obsessed fool!! LOL

          • Giggi

            Who is this insulting and hostile troll, Bexx? Is this the kind of monster that trolls this site? How disgusting. I’ll never come back to SON again.

  • Nk3play2

    I refuse to believe CBS/Sony is THIS stupid to even consider hiring this man back after what he allegedly did, and what they did try and stop fans from demanding that he be rehired. I also refuse to believe that MM wouldn’t come out swinging against such allegations. An innocent man would never sit and watch while his entire life is literally destroyed. Whether he got candid and straight up said, they were lies or he quietly launched a lawsuit against the company and the alleged victim, I doubt he’d do nothing if the allegations weren’t true. If MM was on set at all, he may have been assisting with the search for his replacement.

    • Bexx

      I find the timing quite interesting, considering there was another soap site last week that recycled the original story of his firing. The way the article was displayed made it appear to new breaking news. It wasn’t. It was mainly do to the way the website is coded. His fans took that as subtle hint that he was returning. Nina Tassler came out and said they supported Sony in removing Muhney, so what that’s all changed? lol

      • Didi

        Ratings Bexx, ratings.

        • Bexx

          Didi, there are better ways for them to increase the ratings. They need a new HW, new EP, and better storytelling. I see no point in bringing back a controversial figure to gain ratings. Why set themselves up for the drama that he and fans bring with them? In my opinion it’s just not worth it.

          • Pete

            It’s not worth it? JFP’s job is to make money and she makes money by having good ratings so its definitely worth it to her.

          • Bexx

            JFP have no say in firing Muhney, what makes you think she has any input now? Him being fired was above her pay grade.

          • RedRiver38

            JFP’s job is on the line. The ratings for Y&R are sinking like the Titanic. Demos are at all time lows. The knives are out for her, finally.

      • nikki

        I’m always amazed when you people act like you we’re there and saw it all. THERE WE’RE NO WITNESSES.Rating dropped after Billy Miller/Michael Muhney left and they don’t seem to be getting the fans back. In the meantime General Hospital has picked up fans since hiring Billy Miller & M.Stafford( ex. Phyllis) I think that says something. They now brought in two strong actresses Gina T. to play Phyllis and Cady M. Both these ladies are bright & strong actresses but will it work. Fans are missing Billy Miller & Adam Newman. If they replace M.M. with another actor to play Adam the fans will only reject him the same way they rejected David Tom as Billy Abbott, then what?

    • Angelique V

      alleged key word. we shouldn’t go around throwing stones if there is no hardcore proof. thats the bad thing about rumors is thats exactly what it is RUMOR. its the thing that gets critics to put their foot in their mouth. I like him and think hes a great actor but if and when they find PROOF that is when judgement should be put out there.

      • Carol Williams

        I agree,, who is to say he really did those things? Sorry, but the person playing Summer doesn’t look to smart. Get rid of her then. I think he is a great actor and would love to see him back on. I am getting tired of the storyline of Sumer and her drama. She is an adult for heavens sake… grow up.. She is always crying about someone or something that has wronged her. She probably did the same to the one playing Adam. Who the hell said they are bringing him back to gain ratings??? Maybe because he is good and keeps the show good. Some people should not have a right to open their mouths..

        • Angelique V

          Yep so true and if they hate him that much then DONT WATCH THE SHOW! He brings a lot of drama and keeps victor on his toes and heats things up and makes the show complete. No one is perfect. Are the Muhney bashers perfect and free from flaws? I think not.

  • Trisha

    Slow news week? Now they gotta make stuff up. Good one. LMAO!

    • Bexx

      It’s SOD reporting, not SON. They need the magazine sales, I suppose.

  • Kay

    Yeah right. If the allegations against MM were true, there’s no way CBS/Sony would rehire him to work around HK again. And if the allegations are false, I doubt MM would be anxious to return to work with people who would seek to defame him in such a way. Also, it’s pretty clear that as much as some fans might like MM’s work as Adam, most of the cast didn’t seem to like him very much.

    • Bexx

      Exactly! His aggressive fans are the ones who ruined things for him. Those lunatics are not the sort of fans you want on board, nor the type of trash you want claiming to be a Y&R fan. They wanted Y&R to sink because they couldn’t have their way. If CBS brings him back, then he would be virtually untouchable, because any news that he isn’t being given what he wants will make them start up their boycotting nonsense again.

      CBS need to continue to ignore them, and focus on making a better show for the viewers that they do have.

      • fanofmm

        I think you are somewhat of a fanatic yourself, Bexx. Calling viewers “trash?” There is room for discussion on any topic, but your angry attitude ruins it for those of us who want a civil discussion. If CBS’s bottom line ($) is being affected, there will be changes. The best change for Y&R would be getting new writers who know the history of the show and characters and appreciate the dedicated fans, old and new, who have stayed with this show through January 2014. The last straw was the firing of MM. The rumors about MM are just that, rumors. Show the fans proof, or apologize. Then beg MM to come back, offer him a raise, and get him back. I wouldn’t blame him if he declined the offer, but at least clear this whole mess up for the viewers. You don’t improve a show by alienating fans, and that’s just what happened here.

        • Pauline

          I agree. The only lunatic around here is this Bexx person. Someone needs to get back on their meds.

  • Nicole

    Bring Michael back as Adam. Y&R higher ups have seen how the Billy recast was a huge bomb. The show needs a quality actor like Michael back.

  • Fred

    There is only one Adam. MM. So sick and tired of the rumor mongers and backstabbers spreading gossip. MM is innocent. There was no groping. Stop spreading hate and lies.

  • Cassandra Tinder

    Most of the cast did NOT hate him. They did not have the facts. He is a great actor, and I am a BIG fan of Michael Muhney. I take offense to being called aggressive and I most certainly am not trash. He needs to come back with a giant pay raise. Don’t be such haters. He will save our beloved show.

    • Bexx

      “He will save our beloved show.” Exactly why you Muhney worshippers should be blatantly ignored. One man will never make a soap. Till this day no other cast member, apart from Sharon Case has spoken out in his defense. He was a conceited jackass who respected no one. Let him find work elsewhere.

      • Cassandra Tinder

        Sharon Case is the only one with balls. I am not a Michael Muhney worshipper, I just love great talent.

        • Bexx

          Sharon Case considered him to be a friend. Friends sometimes do bad things.

          • Vera West

            Is your real name Jill Phelps? You’ve got some real psychological problems. You should seek help over your obvious obsession over Mr. Muhney. Get a life.

          • Bexx

            Please stop accusing those who don’t support the predator of being JFP. It’s really is becoming silly.

          • sherwood

            You’re the predator. You have a screw loose. Quit attacking people.

      • Lili

        No other cast member spoke out on his behalf, because they knew they would be next in the chopping block if they did!
        However Melissa Claire Egan had nothing but kind things to say about Michael. So what he has an ‘EGO’ what actor in Hollywood doesn’t? Clearly Eric Braeden felt threatened as did the few classless co-stars that decided to kick Michael while he was down.
        1.5 million viewers lost since January 30th I’d say that speaks volumes as to who was carrying the show!

        • Bexx

          Problem is he’s not a Hollywood movie star. His name isn’t lit up in sparkly lights, he’s not headlining any big budget films, he’s not the main attraction for long time Y&R viewers. He never has been. I laugh at the idea that you believe that 1.5 million actively decided to stop watching for Muhney. His fans couldn’t even generate 10k signatures for his petition. He has less than 90k followers on Twitter, but yeah, 1.5 viewers are boycotting for him. Give me a frigging break.

          When Miller, Stafford, and Muhney were all being featured on Y&R ratings still fell. CLEARLY there is more to Y&R numbers than one missing egotistical man.

          • Lili

            I LAUGH at the IDEA that you think MUHNEY’s departure didn’t make a dent in the ratings! The proof is in the numbers. And he most certainly is beloved mostly by long time viewers that can tell the difference between mediocracy and excellence.
            I’ve seen your comments harassing ‘MUHNEY’ fans and trying to belittle them for speaking out. Either you are a paid TROLL or you are one of the co-stars that hated him for stealing everyone’s thunder.
            Clearly you are only here to fan the flames!

          • Bexx

            I laugh at the idea that you believe 1.5 million viewers were lost due to one man. You must be new to soaps, because far popular actors have been fired over the years, and guess what honey, the show survived. What ever impact he’s had on the ratings is marginal, and until you can produce actual data, do stop using those 1.5 mil to give credit to your sinking Save Muhney cause.

            By the way, if you know where I can submit my resume for the paid trolling job, send me the fax number please. I love being online, and could use the extra cash to remodel my bedroom this summer. Mmm’k, thanks.

          • Sheryl

            For someone who is posturing himself/herself as not having an agenda, you certainly seem to have one.

            You have stated, yourself (and I paraphrase), that, either way, there is no proof as to what did–or didn’t–take place between these two actors. (And I happen to agree with that sentiment–because the only people who know what actually did happen, if anything, are Michael Muhney and Hunter King. The rest of us don’t know, and it is doubtful that we ever will.) But, based on the tone of your posts, you seem to have already made up your mind–i.e. you have decided, without any proof or evidence, that Muhney is guilty and, as far as I am concerned, that makes you as big a lunatic as you have previously labelled the Muhney fans.

            If Michael Muhney is guilty of these allegations, then he got what he deserved. But this is a country of laws and due process. We don’t try, and convict, people in the media and anyone who decides that another person is guilty of an unsubstantiated allegation (based on something that they’ve read on the internet!) is a frigging idiot. And, that would be you. You are every bit as bad as the MM fans (who blindly believe in his innocence), because you–just as blindly–believe in his guilt. You don’t deal in facts anymore than they do, so your attempts to convince yourself (and everybody else), that you are superior to them are really rather ludicrous.

            Here is a fact: The last week that Billy Miller and Michael Muhney appeared on Y&R, the ratings shot up to 4.0 and now they are down to 3.3. If the show hires back either of these actors, that will be the reason.

            And now I will wait–with bated breath–for your obnoxious response.

      • dawn

        Sharon did a great video of him…eric braeden said he apologized to him, and meant it… he is erics replacement…nobody can replace him, but Michael muhney

  • Gene

    There are people invested in smearing Michael Muhney. An example is the person in this tread that has posted the most. It’s clearly an obsession by people with little in their lives. Sadly a stereotypical soap fan. Legally, nothing can be done. The actor is a public figure, so there is nothing he can do. He denied it, but people with an agenda ignore it. I couldn’t imagine his desire to return to work with the petty & vicious cast at Y&R. He’s very talented and will get past this. Plus, he’s in his late 30’s. Daytime soap operas won’t be around ten years from now. There are only four left and their core audience is dying out. Young women make up a tiny portion of their viewers. The potential for sustaining current audience levels is virtually impossible. There’s no real future for him, so he’d be foolish to go back. The whole affair should be put to rest. It really is a bad reflection on a dying, desperate industry. The show is virtually unwatchable now. That’s all the soap boards talk about now.

    • Bexx

      Wait a Muhney fan having the nerve to call someone obsessed? That’s laughable. I comment on ratings, and general soap news, that’s what people do on a public blog when they have an opinion about something.

      You know till this day Muhney fan girls are on Twitter calling Angelica McDaniel the C word? Yeah, those are the type of people that should be catered to. There is no reason for him to return considering that all his fans have stopped watching the show.

      • Lon L

        We are Michael M. fans and if he came back we would tune in to see him faithfully. We are not obsessed, we are loyal. An injustice was committed against him and Y&R need to make it right

        • Bexx

          I see “injustice” is the buzz word of the day. We don’t need fair-weather viewers at Y&R. Stick to GH or whatever it is you all claim to be watching these days.

          • Lon L

            Excuse you, I have been watching #Y&R since I was 4yrs old. Which is why it has been so hard to let it go! But this woman JFP is ruining the show! The character of Delia did not have to die. Billy Miller, his exit was unnecessary. Michelle Stafford is gone… Why? There is leaving for growth and opportunity which is understood. Being forced out and leaving the audience with bad re cast I do not understand or care to support.

          • Bexx

            Excuse me, but I do not care. IF you have been watching that long then you wouldn’t be out here acting like a love sick school girl with a crush. IF you had been watching soaps as long as you’ve claimed, then you would know that it’s part of the business, actors are fired all the time.

            YOU should know better than to take part in any boycott nonsense, and useless threats to have Y&R sink over one fired actor. If you don’t want to support Y&R, fine, move along. Stop trying to cause trouble for the rest of the viewers who want to continue to support the show.

          • sherwood

            Excuse me, but you’re acting like a ignorant bully. Your insults are not convincing anyone to your side. You’re a loser.

      • ChristineVea

        We love MM! Y&R need to right a injustice!

        • Bexx

          You need to fight for a real cause, not the one of a fired soap actor. What makes his firing any more outrageous than that of any actor or actress that has been inexplicable written out? Sony made the decision, and they should stick with it.

  • Amy

    CBS and Sony need to do the right thing and apologize to him and the actor/actress they threw under the bus AND make him an offer so good that it is worth his while to consider it. Then, they — who know how to do deals — need to convince him he is valued and convince him to accept the apology and the offer. And, then .. put into place a professional and kind workplace.. and empower him to work his magic with his gifted and talented acting to come back as Adam Newman.. injecting REAL tension into all the story lives.. and real believability into the relationships of the other characters and the Adam character.

    • Bexx

      Sorry, but LOL. The producers, and Sony wanted him gone, CBS obliged. I’m sure they are writing an apology letter to him this very minute.

  • Darlene

    I find some of these comments harsh and judgmental. I am a Michael Muhney fan and I do not call people names, insult others or act aggressively towards others assertively but not aggressively. I support an actor who was greatly wronged by allegations being picked up by a person hell bent on destroying another’s person career and life. I have no idea why. This false information was passed on to TMZ who delights in printing the worst about everyone. Nelson Branco published an article in early January, I believe January 6th, stating that there was nothing to the allegations and that HHK and MM had an oral disagreement, no touching but someone inside Y&R decided to played a game of telephone and made up tiltillating accusations. TMZ ran with it because this is sadly what a lot of people are interested in hearing, whether true or not. Nelson Branco’s article was not picked up by TMZ and then spread throughout about 100 other rag type publications because it didn’t make any money for them or the other rags. Trash sells. I feel very sad for public figures who are not allowed to have a personal life and news outlets consider everything about them fair game to release to the general population.
    Y&R has been known for many years to have a very dysfunctional behind the scenes environment, consisting of cliques, fights (Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman duked it out sometime in the past. Anyone would be fired for that now but they were not.) In her book Jeanne Cooper disclosed that she loved to pinch the guys’ butts [page 140 of her book] and no action was taken against her. I am not making excuses or condoning any of that type of behavior by anyone, man or woman, just throwing out fact based information. Michael Muhney publicly stated why he was let go and he took responsibility for his actions of letting his on-set behavior bleed over into his personal life and behind the scenes; he admitted having too much hubris, admitted that he was a perfectionist which rubbed some the wrong way, etc. But it seems people prefer not to believe that. SONY and CBS did not publicly release these allegations. They said that they could not comment on rumors or contract issues (Nina Tassler of CBS). I don’t believe SONY said anything.
    I followed a thread of tweets where a MM hater challenged Michael’s Mom regarding Michael’s behavior. Real ballsy of the individual but Michael’s Mom was very gracious, responded with respect and as the tweeters grew into a group rather than just the one individual who instigated the whole incident, she said that Michael didn’t do what he was accused of and that Michael did not want to sue, that is not who he is. Michael’s Mom showed a lot of class and tolerance when she was being attacked and put on the defensive. I’m sure it’s all out there on Twitter for anyone to follow.
    Sharon Case, Melissa Claire Egan, Amelia Heinle and Billy Miller openly supported Michael Muhney and said that their reports to EP Phelps were ignored. Michael’s leading lady in one of his movies came forward and said that Michael was always a gentleman. Even Kristoff St. John came out later and said that Michael had little interaction with HHK and he was let go because of attitude. I saw the tweets with my own two eyes! I’d like everyone in this comment section to tell me one of those actors who do not have a big ego. You have to be pretty dame sure of yourself and confident to appear on a soap day after day. Some of the story lines are so tragic that they cannot but affect the actors emotionally, especially the “Delia Dies” story line. It was the most horrendous and tasteless story line that I’ve ever seen on a soap. However, I did read that Jill Farren Phelps did a similar story line on General Hospital which involved a little boy being killed by his grandfather. The actor who played the boy’s father quit the show if I recall correctly. Rather than tearing these people down, I personally feel that they need to be supported for their day after day grind for us to enjoy. It wouldn’t hurt any of us to show a little appreciation.
    I know SONY instigated Michael Muhney’s firing but there was an agenda attached and CBS went along with their request because SONY owns the lion’s share of the Y&R. The movement to fire Michael Muhney began in August 2013. It was systematic and calculated. Writer Josh Griffith was fired after he finished the “Delia Dies” story line for JFP. Lots of reports indicate that the story line was created to turn fans against Michael Muhney so there would be no backlash when he was fired. But it backfired because fans became more empathic, sympathetic and endeared to an actor who displayed such exceptional talent in his role. Michael Muhney openly said that he loved the soap opera genre and he wanted to pinch himself because he wasn’t sure it was for real. He wanted perfection for us and some did not want to perform at that level and felt threatened. I am not going to give any names. There was not a lot of outward support shown for Michael because cast members are/were in fear of losing their jobs and they were all likely told by lawyers not to say anything or do anything, all of them. Look at the number of people who have left over the past year, starting with Michelle Stafford who left in August 2013 because of conflict with JFP. JFP would not negotiate with Billy Miller so he chose to leave, actor who played Kyle was fired and left the same day as Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. Elizabeth Hendrickson decided not to renew her contract and go to do something else. I’m thinking likely that she needed a break after the “Delia Dies” story line. All of the actors directly involved had extremely difficult roles to play and delivered for US! (Elizabeth Hendrickson, Billy Miller, Melissa Claire Egan, and Michael Muhney). There is so much history on JFP’s management style; she gets rid of legacy characters, dumbs down women, and brings in her own friends. Billy Miller and Michael Muhney had to leave so that Steve Burton could shine. And the poor naïve guy left a soap where he was loved to do dumb story lines on Y&R. Burton’s leaving General Hospital left an extremely bad taste with General Hospital actors, management and fans who loved Steve Burton.
    If Michael Muhney wants to return to Y&R, I will totally support his decision. However, I am concerned that even he cannot bring Y&R back from the brink and the trajectory that it’s on now. Maybe JFP was hired by SONY to help them get out of the soap business; they aren’t going to tell you that. But I see no reason that Phelps has been kept based upon the revolving door that began over the past several months and the extremely boring and never ending story lines. Its ratings are in the toilet. The three other soaps are picking up ground fast.
    Michael Muhney fans do not have an agenda to have Y&R fail. A great number of these people who no longer watch are heartbroken that the show that they watched for so many years has been literally torn apart by one person in a short amount of time. Some of the reasons that Michael’s fans support him are: he’s a tremendous actor who brought the role of Adam to life, he is focused, wants to deliver his best for US, commitment and a good work ethic, Michael loves his children and his whole family. Michael and his mother are very close. Michael is a hands on father. Michael is dedicated to his fans and appreciative of the support that he gets from them. Yes, he’s intense and wants to do a good job, maybe such a good job that the viewers don’t even deserve. Michael’s work ethic, His ability to show maturity. What good would it have done for him or Hunter King for that matter to say anything? Would they be believed? Doubtful. That’s not what people want to hear. Both Michael and Hunter King have taken the high road and both are victims of a malicious group of people who I personally do not understand. Why hurt someone you don’t even know? In this case two people: Michael Muhney and Hunter King. Why?
    Those people that you call lunatics are not Michael Muhney fans. Michael’s website was hacked. The Guest book that Michael created for his fans could no longer be used because of some malicious actions by a hacker who hacked for who knows what. His new website WAS beautiful. There are 18 Facebook groups supporting Michael Muhney and in a good number of them there have been poachers or trolls or whatever you want to call them who were out to hurt his real fans. Facebook pages were hacked and information destroyed. Multiple accounts created. Just a host of miserable stuff.
    Michael Muhney’s fans want to see him back on their TVs period. If it’s Y&R so be it but it would likely be better if he did not return there because it’s a hostile work environment. We don’t want to fight with anyone. We want to be left alone. We want our actor back out doing the craft that he loves.
    Yes, I do think that Michael Muhney is owed a public apology by SONY and CBS. Whether he gets it or not is doubtful. It’s obvious that they are not appreciative of his talent and threw him out like yesterday’s trash. Same with Billy Miller. There is no legitimate reason as far as I am concerned that he could not be granted additional time to pursue other projects. Other actors on Y&R are allowed to do that. Y&R is a work environment of nepotism and favoritism. I do NOT condone anyone being unkind to another for any reason. It’s just not necessary and we can all co-exist if we all make effort to get along rather than trying to shaft the other guy.
    So there you have my long winded overview/analysis of the situation at hand and how I view the situation. Whether SONY or CBS do anything in their best interest or not, is up to them. If they want to be #4 vs. #1 so be it. If they want to do story lines that don’t have any public good or moral or theme…they can do that. Their story lines can drag on forever if they want. I’m just not going to be a part of it. Our lives are all about choices. There are so many choices out there now for entertainment, these soaps (all of them) are lucky that they get any viewers. There are hundreds of channels, networks or whatever you want to call them. If they don’t want to treat their viewers as their customers, well viewers can make the same choices as other customers or consumers do, go to someone else or somewhere else. No one has to accept crap!
    Viewers were lucky to see Michael Muhney play the role of Adam and make him literally come alive. An actor of that caliber doesn’t come along very often and I feel that he should be treasured and appreciated.

    • Bexx

      JESUS!

      3 things…

      You didn’t believe TMZ, but you believed a raving madman like Branco?

      Why are you still harping on the fact that a dead woman wasn’t fired?

      Do stop attempting to hold CBS hostage in the ratings game.

      Sorry, I couldn’t bother with the rest of your nonsense.

    • Lon L

      Thank you. I am a @michealmuhney and #BillyMiller fan. You expressed our point of view and affections for these talented actors and #Y&R. You relayed facts not hatred and misinformation. Thank you for continuing to support Michael Muhney.

    • Lynda

      Very well written Darlene

    • Sally

      Darlene, I agree with every word you posted. We were VERY lucky to have “Adam” as long as we did, and enjoy his superb acting talent God gave him!! AND I do wish that some miracle would happen, and CBS, Sony and JFP Apologize to him and let him come back!!! And Kudos to you, very well said.

  • Steve

    To hire Michael Muhney back is not the answer to low ratings. He happened to be fired at the same time that this great show switched writers, producers and directors and went from first to worst. They need to bring in a Y & R veteran and try and pretend this whole JFP thing never happened. The Bell power is at B&B now but I honestly do not see one show surviving long term without the other.

    • stacey l. nelson

      They did get rid of good writers. Didn’t JFP show get canceled. Why did that happen? Answe: Bad writing. Was she and is she saving Y & R money by getting rid of some old acters? Answer: Yes. Is she purposely making our beloved characters look stupid? Answer: Yes. History of soaps has had bad guys and good guys. It’s been easy to not like a character and then fall in love with them. JFP is now writing for real people’s lives.

  • reeceecup™

    If he is returning, Hunter King should be fired, immediately! She ran this man’s good name through the mud..I am a big fan and would love to have him back. The show has been painful to watch for months now.

    • Bexx

      She ran his name through the mud how? I’m always amazed that his lunatic fans can claim he’s innocent because there is no proof, then in the same comment blame Hunter, when they have no proof.

      • Kye

        She said IF HE IS RETURNING, I see nothing in her comment that would warrant calling his fans lunatics, You know what is amazing is firing a man, labeling him as a sexual harasser and trying to destroy him because people were butt hurt that he was a better actor and had a big ego. So its crazy to blame her with no proof, but not crazy to blame him with no proof?? WOW awesome logic…we never see anyone lying about this type of thing do we? Just ask the football player who spent years in jail only to have the girl come out and say she lied. He has worked with many females and every single one said he was a gentlemen and great guy, and lets face it Hunter is not even very good looking, yet she was the only girl he hit on? They could not bring him back if he was guilty of sexual harassment because it would open them to gigantic law suits. Therefore if he comes back none of those rumors were true, and if that’s the case no matter who started them Hunter and others should have come forward to say it was lies, but they used that to get rid of him and turn people on him…Many things pointed to it being untrue yet they refused to speak on it because they wanted to destroy his reputation.

        • Linda

          the show would survive without HK, but it’sinking fast without MM

      • Bohemia_1918

        I’m with you, Bexx. His fans have gone way overboard with this, especially those who harassed Hunter King. It’s especially appalling to see that many of them are middle-aged. Grown women picking on a young actress when they weren’t even there. How embarrassing for them.

        • Denise Vidal

          I think hes amazing and we need him back on show along with the old Blilly and Phyllis I hate to see when they cast other people to take the regular stars place

          • Abner4President

            How do you even watch soaps, then?

            And the Muhney situation is different, of course, but sometimes actors choose to leave. Do you want every character whose actor exits the role to be written off or do you expect the producers to hold the actors captive and force them to continue playing the part?

        • Sheryl

          You weren’t there, either. And while I completely agree that no one has the right to pick on Hunter King; conversely, nobody (such as yourself) has the right to pick on Michael Muhney. There is no proof, no evidence has been presented, and since you’ve obviously decided that he is guilty, based on what you’ve read on the internet–well, how embarrassing for YOU.

          • Bexx

            His fans have concluded that Hunter King is a lying “w***e” who should be “raped” and “murdered.” How embarrassing for you all that the world knows that the fan base you’ve chosen to apart of is that ignorant.

        • Carol Williams

          well no one was really there right? The people talking their talk about MM are no better than he ones that harassed Hunter King

      • Holly St

        You are the one obsessed with Michael Muhney. How many ridiculous posts have you made here? You’re obviously a very sad, nasty little person. What you add is of no consequence. It’s a broken record by the real lunatic.

        • RedRiver38

          Note to all: This Bexx person is an obnoxious bully as you can see by his insults and labeling of people as lunatics and trash. This person is out of control and has been allowed to do this for months. My big question is why SON allows him to do this without being banned? Other sites would now allow this horrible conduct. The site either approves of this kind of conduct or is turning a blind eye to it. This kind of bullying should not be tolerated.

          • Bexx

            You know why I haven’t been banned? It’s because of people like you and Sherwood who insult and name call, then attempt to the play the victim. All the Mods have to do is view your posting history and they will see that you’re nothing but a hypocrite.

          • Dorothy James

            Sir, you have made a fool of yourself all over this board. Your childish behavior and name calling is appalling. You’ve insulted anyone who disagrees with you. Obviously, you don’t know how to behave in a civilized manner. Grow up.

          • Bexx

            Dorothy, you are an unregistered nobody who know’s nothing of me personally. What you may think of me won’t change my outlook. Focus on the real issues plaguing this world, and not the behavior of an anonymous user. Maybe try knitting if you’re bored.

      • sherwood

        If you disagree with this punk, he calls you a lunatic. I think everyone reading this can see who the real lunatic is. Why is this horrid person allowed to do this to other posters? He/she/it adds nothing to the conversation.

        • Bexx

          Harassing viewers of Y&R because they have chosen to continue to watch is adding to the conversation?

  • ChristineVea

    Bring back Michael Muhney make the fans happy!

    • Bexx

      His fans are no longer viewers of Y&R, therefore there is no one to make happy.

      • Jdean

        That’s true. Ha. The show stinks now. I know many people like me who have watched the show for 30+ years and have stopped watching now for the first time. Call it coincidence if you’d like or obsessed fans but it really just boils down to MM being fired and poor writing. Oh and bringing on new actors who can’t act (is Jacks new girlfriend).

        • Bexx

          Then there definitely is no need to cater to those lost fans now, correct? CBS might as well focus on pleasing the remaining viewers that they have.

          • RedRiver38

            That audience is shrinking in size every week. Smallest female 18-49 demos ever. GH is #1 and Days is moving up.

          • Jdean

            I guess your right. If Y&R no longer cares about getting back lost viewers and improving its terrible ratings. Sure, it should cater to the viewers it has now and forget all about the thousands of fans who have stuck by this show for decades.

        • merricourt

          I agree about Cady McClain. I would have loved for Cynthia Watros to have stayed in the part of Kelly.

    • sands of time

      He is in talks with DAYS!

  • ChristineVea

    What it boils down to, EP is destroying this show! It’s time for CBS/Sony to fire her.

  • Alice Reid

    I think that some of the haters are here for sure today. They have their little clicks and keep the hate going. Michael Muhney is a beloved actor with a large following whether they like it or not

    • Bexx

      Tweens and teens use the term ‘hater’ do us a favor and grow up Ma’am. Many soap actors have a large following, and I don’t see their fans sending out death threats to the network execs.

  • TV&MovieBuff

    The ratings at Y&R have nothing to do with this actor or any actor. It is about the writing, the pacing, etc. All these actors that people keep throwing up as the saviors of Y&R (yes Stafford, Muhney, Miller) were all there when MAB with her terrible stories and writing were also driving the ratings in the ground.

    MAB and Latham before her got rid of many talented and popular actors too, including Victoria Rowell and Don Diamont. Their fans claimed that Y&R would die without them too. They constantly went on about how high the ratings were when they were featured in front burner stories. But other actors were brought on, stories got slightly popular and ratings went up — only to fall again. This led to the firings of Latham and MAB.

    Still neither character was brought back from the dead.

    Hopefully Phelps will finally be fired along with Altman and Passanante. But bringing Muhney or Stafford or Miller back are instantly going to fix any of the problems that are plaguing Y&R right now. All that hiring any of them will do is honor diva like behavior — one of the biggest problems that has been plaguing Y&R for a long time.

    • 12Feliciene

      I agree with you. It’s the writing that makes the show because there’s many good actors on the show but the storylines are not that great & get dragged out too much. I will continue watching it but hope they get rid of Phelp as they have lost many viewers.

  • blackdia5204

    I knew this would happen. The deal was done at the end of April. If you notice his radio silence on twitter ended at that time. His messages are cryptic and if you read between the lines you knew he was working again. Y&R needs something to combat GH snatching Stafford

  • Bohemia_1918

    How is this fair to Hunter King? If he comes back I will stop watching, and I have NEVER said or even thought that in the 15+ years I have watched this soap. Just because he has a loud, vocal group of fans doesn’t mean the rest of us are ok with this. Please reconsider, producers. I really want to keep enjoying my favorite soap.

    • don

      What happen to hunter king is only allegations there is no proof and hunter did not come forward to confirm that the allegation in question is true so I would be careful on the other hand they could bring MM back as Adam to boost the ratings but again it is not confirm by anyone at cbs or sony

      • Bohemia_1918

        True, it isn’t confirmed yet. I kind of doubt the idea that bringing him back would bring up the ratings–I think his fans are a small but vocal group (like I said above). Don’t get me wrong, I always thought MM was a great actor. I just have zero tolerance for sexual harassment or harassment of any kind, and I think CBS should have the same policy.

        • AB98409

          Again, this allegation was never proven & King never came forward to actually, formerly accused him of anything! Therefore no charges were filled, EVER! No police, no report, no court, no charges… just some “inside” information that was leaked by some unanimous source, no proof, no nothing… Not even the “victim” or any of the othercrew members backed that story up! If you follow the whole story & skip the National Examiner type of trashy mags, you’ll wonder how this could ever have been considered to be the truth! It’s a shame that the reputation of someone could be destroyed by some “gossip” that was cowardly leaked unanimously! So, I urge you & anyone else to please think how much damage can be done by keeping this hateful gossip going…. Please remember, it’s inoccent until proven guilty, not the other way around!

          • Jdean

            Amen!

          • Bexx

            Innocent until proven guilty? Counselor, where were you during the months that the Muhney she-dogs were on the attack?

          • sherwood

            Same could be said about your smear comments silly man.

          • Bexx

            I see the Mods got wind of your multiple usernames?

          • Carol Williams

            wow finally someone with a brain. I have never been on this site before, but there is one on here that is a real idiot. I do not think this person made it out of the second grade. I get a chuckle when I see someone stupid try to talk like they are smart. Well I guess this person is good for entertainment. However, I do believe, writing about a soap opera is the only life he/she has.

        • Dean Stacy Sullivan

          Were you there did you see it happened and she waited awhile before she reported it and why didn’t she go to police.I think just wanted more time on show and ths ts why she lied.beleive in michael and his wife must she never left him.come back michael we love you!!

        • Kathy Smith Porter

          no one can replace Michael!

    • Linda

      the show is horrible without him. Obviously 1.5 million viewers feel the same by not watching since he left. Do your homework and read the report that found him NOT guilty of those charges!

    • 12Feliciene

      I don’t know the whole story about what actually happened. I do wish for his return but I will believe it only if it happens.

    • Jdean

      Your the minority. Hunter king should go to the police if she has a issue with MM. I want MM back…HK can go take a long walk off a short bridge for all I care. Her character is irrelevant.

      • Amy

        @jdean; really?? She was sexually harassed and went to the high ups and they fired him. I think its so sad when women blame the victim (HH)b/c of their blind devotion to MM. Sad and Embarrassing.

        • martha

          If she was sexually harrased why did they keep MM on until his contract ran out? Where’s the concern for this girl? If it was true MM would have been out of there and charges laid. But no… Didn’t happen!!!!! Its sad when young girls are USED by old bags like JFP for her own purpose. JFP needs to go.. And she can drag old EB with her.

          • njustforeu

            I agree, Martha. And that part about JFP dragging EB off with her–hahaha! You made my day with that one!

          • sherwood

            This is the truth. If it happened, he would have been dismissed immediately. I’ve asked people in the human resources field about this and they say it could have never occurred. JFP should be fired. She’s ruined a once good show. They should bring MM back ASAP.

        • Sheryl

          It is, indeed, very sad when a woman is victimized and then blamed for the incident (or worse, not believed). But the responsibility for that lies squarely at the feet of the many women who have falsely accused innocent men of sex crimes. They are the reason why those women who really are victims are now having their word doubted.

          But a man can also be victimized, so unless you were an eyewitness to what took place between Michael Muhney and Hunter King, then you don’t know what actually happened (any more than the rest of us do) and it sounds to me as though you believe HK for no other reason than she is a woman–and that, too, is sad and embarrassing.

          • Linda

            again do your homework. An investigation found there was no proof of anything.

        • Sylvia

          I guess you backed the woman that accused the Duke LaCrosse team too. Women like you are sad and embarrassing.

          • mom chez

            Yes, don’t get me started on Ms Magnum woman, Duke Lacrosse team accuser . If HHK is lying, she still has the opportunity to admit her lies and should do so. The longer she waits, the worse it is.

    • sherwood

      Maybe you can start watching Days Of Our Lives. Enjoy!

    • Kathy Smith Porter

      How do you know Hunter King is telling the truth!? bring back Michael

      • sands of time

        Michael and Billy are on their way to DAYS with Eileen Davidson!!!

  • lyte

    Let MM be, he is the pepper to hot things back up on Y&R, and might I add I am one of his biggest fans, and proud that he kept discreet despite the lies and nonsense! Tht is a man with integrity! Who cares wht anyone thinks. ” Best of luck MM”!

    • Bexx

      Not all peppers are safe for human consumption. Just ask the Y&R cast.

  • cdh195077

    I would be shock and surprised if Y/R decide to bring back Michael Muhney as Adam Newman. I can’t wait to read what kind of story that the Y/R will come with bringing back MM as Adam Newman. Good luck to the future.

  • Timmy Lee Roberts

    If they bring him back, then Hunter King needs to be let go because she obviously lied about an innocent man.

    • Bexx

      Where is your proof that she lied? Oh, I forgot you don’t believe the rumors about Muhney because there is no proof, but you do believe that Hunter the liar made up the story, despite having zero proof that the incident even occurred. Twenty two additional idiots can’t understand logic?

      • sherwood

        Once again, you’re the idiot. You can’t convince anyone. You just insult people. Childish fool.

      • RedRiver38

        Where’s there proof that she didn’t? You’re little game doesn’t work here. You’ve been called out on your silly garbage.

  • Warren Brady

    I have to laugh at Bexx calling everyone else obsessed lunatics when obviously he is the biggest one of all.

    • sherwood

      So true. I’ve been harassed by that troll ever since I posted here. If you have a different opinion from his, he attacks you and calls you names. He’s an embarrassment to himself. He’s obviously obsessed with Michael Muhney.

    • Bexx

      Obsessed would be donating your hard-earned money to charter a plane for a soap actor.

  • Judi Roane

    Most people go to the police when sexually harrassed. It helps prevent other people from experiencing the same thing. I think it’s assault when they touch you. Wonder why ms King chose not to.

    • Brian Delaney

      Because it didn’t happen.

      • RedRiver38

        This is so true. It didn’t happen. It’s plainly obvious to anyone who has an objective perspective.

    • Bexx

      60% of sexual assaults are NEVER reported. Most women refuse to come forward do to harassment, and fear that no one will believe then. What a horrible world we live in when women of a ‘mature’ age can turn around and abuse the same victim twice. Whether or not you believe the allegations, it doesn’t give his fans a right to abuse a young impressionable girl. So many young girls commit suicide due to bullying. What kind of children are you raising Ma’am? Do you have daughters, granddaughters?

      • sherwood

        It has nothing to do with this situation. You aren’t the judge and jury. You know nothing.

        • Judi Roane

          You aren’t even rationale I didn’t voice an opinion. I simply asked a question. You have no idea what I think.

          • Bexx

            “Most people go to the police when sexually harrassed.”

            You know that isn’t true…

            You’re implying that she couldn’t have been abused if she did not go to the police. Knowing what you claim to know about sexual abuse, then you know that many female victims will simply go through the motions. Often times they tell themselves that they just want to “forget” what’s happened to them, or worse they convince themselves that nothing did happen. In many cases where the victims know their attackers (2/3 of the times) the victim will blame themselves for the abuse.

          • Abner4President

            What you think is pretty apparent by the question you felt the need to ask. Especially if you are, in fact, familiar with sexual abuse and how often it goes unreported to the police, as you claim, it’s rather obvious what you’re implying.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            She knew exactly what she was implying. How frightful that this person has access to women suffering trauma.

      • Judi Roane

        She did come forward, just not to the police. I do have grand daughters. I’m also a HCP for young women so I’m very familiar with sexually abuse.

        • Bexx

          If you’re familiar with sexual abuse how do you have the audacity to say such rubbish knowing what you know? Fact is, most victims won’t go to the police, and most attackers won’t ever serve jail time. I was just reading an article the other day regarding Mexican female immigrants who attempt to sneak into the US. 90% of the time these women are raped along our borders, and they almost never report the incident or their attacker. These women actually go and purchase contraceptives pills before their journey because they know they will be raped. Perhaps Hunter never proceeded to file a report, but it also does not mean she was never a victim. How you can be a HCP for young women and have your beliefs is disconcerting.

          • RedRiver38

            You’re fake “concern” then nasty comments make for an interesting read. You are nothing more than a troll and hating bully.

  • Leslie Carrasquillo

    Omg if it’s true I will keep watching just to see him his the only Adam Newman there’s no other Adam his irreplaceable bring him back please I was considering stop watching after watching the Y&R for 23 because it’s has gotten boring with this crazy story lines but if Micheal comes back I definitely will keep watching and please stop firing this actor and start firing your writers and hire new ones Well I hope this story is true now I really gonna stay posted come back Micheal I mis you

  • nyvoter

    I clearly do not think bringing back Michael Muhney to Y&R will be the answer to its ails or alone resusitate the soap’s flailing numbers. However, Mr. Muhney is an extremely talented actor, clearly significant viewers ceased (or at the least decreased) viewership for Y&R. I believe JFP has a vision (one in which I do not partake) and MM became to her a nuisance because he has his own vision of where his character should be headed. Much is wrong with Y&R: its rating is stale, immaturish, inconsisent and boring. Its characters do not effect us (or at least me) in any fashion, they annoy me, they bore me … at least they did until I took Y&R off the DVR last year … and it hardly seems to have improved. But if Y&R does not improve, beginning with its top core, it is headed in a soon-to-be irreversible position. I do not think it matters if they bring back MM: It would have an immediate uptick, but soon enough all the other ails would drive it down. One actor cannot save or room a show. But I think the firing of MM (and all the attendant actions) demonstrates the thoughtless heads of state at play. Please do not waste my time on silly harrassment nonsense. As an attorney, I can assure you any authentic harrassment claim would have been handled quite difererently. Sadly this whole rendition represents what a few bad apples at the top, unsupervised, and unchecked can create utilizing fear factors, unaccountability and social media at its worse. And who are the real losers: All the would-be viewers who never stood a chance.

    • Sheryl

      Thank you. That was very refreshing.

      • njustforeu

        I too want to say thank you–you said everything I feel about this Y&R mess and agree totally.

    • sherwood

      Gee, someone who actually knows the law that shows the harassment smear was garbage. Thank you.

      • Bexx

        If you actually believe that nyvoter is a lawyer, then let me sell you this bridge I’ve got right here in my pocket. Where do you find your physicians, bus stops?

      • nyvoter

        You are quite welcome, Sherwood. Too much nonsense on this board to take most of it seriously. To address a few items: It has been stated that MM would have had a claim to wrongful termination if the harrassment rumors were false. That is completely untrue. Under his contract (and ALL actors’ contracts), they could be terminated for no reason at all every 13 weeks of their ongoing contract (a few veterans had 26 weeks as opposed to 13). Clearly, a very weak union, but there it is. Secondly, no claim of harrassment was ever formerly charged, just whispered about on message board and picked up by TMZ, thus MM had no charge to make since his termination under his contract was made properly with no reason necessary. Secondly, harrassment charges (as oppossed to rumors) are taken extemely seriously … they are dealt with quickly, strongly, quietly and behind closed doors … not on message boards and slimy blogs. You can be assured, Sherwood, that what went down had much more to do with JFP’s visions for Y&R, contrasted with MM’s consistent battle for character movement for Adam

        • Bexx

          Still laying blame on JFP, despite the fact that Muhney said himself that she had nothing to with it. What part of SONY wanting him gone do you not seem to understand? Since when is JFP above Nina Tassler and Sony? The only rational thing you have ever said since coming here is that MM will do nothing for the ratings long term.

  • A-Cole Joyce

    Bring back Billy Miller also!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kathy Smith Porter

      YES!

    • sands of time

      Billy Miller is in talks with DAYS!

  • Blink

    Why would Michael Muhney come back to an organization that did nothing but try and defame him, that would be ridiculous. He should just keep trying primetime, he’s talented and will get noticed sooner or later. As far as the rumor, I treat it as such a rumor with no validation from either party.

    • Bexx

      I agree! No reason for him to return. Eventually he will offered a role in a Lifetime movie. Cheers.

    • Abner4President

      He tried prime time once. Didn’t work out too well for him. I’m sure it’s just a huge coincidence that his one significant prime time role also ended amid rumors of his sexually harassing co-workers, though.

      • http://unknown.com Bexx

        All you keep hearing is that he’s going to go straight to prime time from his fans, yet I’ve heard nothing of upcoming appearances. Did you see the send off the people at Veronica Mars gave him?

        • Fred

          People are written out of shows.all the time. No big deal.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            Fred, FINALLY you get it! This is the most profound thing you’ve ever said. Why has it taken you so long to figure things out? People are written out of shows all the time. NO BIG DEAL. The discussion can finally end.

  • RedRiver38

    If Michael Muhney wants to come back, it’s OK by me. It’s plainly obvious that the smear against him is untrue if he has been back to the studios. He’s suffered enough from this whole affair. Good luck to him on whatever he choses to do.

    • sherwood

      Michael Muhney was the reason I started watching Y&R. I knew how good he was from his work on VERONICA MARS as Sheriff Don Lamb. He’s a terrific actor that created the role of Adam Newman into a “must see” character. The show is so bad now without him. They would be fools not to bring him back, if he even wants to.

      • Bexx

        Yeah, and they didn’t even want him at Veronica Mars due to his behavior. Did you see how they killed him off? LMAO…Bat to the skull! Classic send off for a problematic actor.

            Thank you for your observation! I’ll inform my therapist tomorrow. I’ll also ask him why people create fake identities just to post multiple comments on a blog.

  • gml0603

    I would absolutely love it if he comes back. I really took his being let go hard. We finally had a Victor 2.0 which any successful show needs to have for the most leading characters. I’m rooting for him but trying to be cautious of any news he’s back until I see his handsome face!

  • Laurel Twist

    There is no way in hell I would ever suppport the return of Michael Muhney, and if YR, CBS, and Sony decide to bring him back, the show will die. While I know his fans have been very vocal about his return, most of the YR community remained silient. You do not fire innocent men, period, and innocent men fight for their reputation. What a slap, in the face to a predominately female watched show. I would NEVER allow any damn show to disrepect me with this shiitake. To bring him back would also be a slap, in the face, to the cast and crew who had to put up with his crap. Hire him back at your own risk.

  • Laurel Twist

    There is no way I would EVER support the return of Michael Muhney. Innocent men are not fired, and innocent men fight for their reputation. It is insane, to me, that this is even coming up in conversation. SERIOUSLY?!

    • Bexx

      BINGO! At the end of the day Muhney was fired for a reason. This wasn’t some jealous act by JFP to give the boy wonder Burton more screen time. SONY—-CBS agreed that he had to go. He made it a hostile work environment for his co-stars. He’s a trouble maker. There is nothing to justify his return after the abusive behavior unleashed by he and his fans.

      • Linda

        Ratings!

        • Bexx

          If ratings fell when he and Stafford, as well as Billy Miller were all aboard, then what ever affect he has on the ratings (if any) won’t last.

      • Justin Case

        Do you work at Y&R? You act like you know everything. Usually loud mouths like you have an agenda, which appears to be obvious with the incessant posts you have here. Sad. Sad. Sad.

        • Bexx

          You all really have to stop believing that everyone who doesn’t idolize Michael Muhney is JFP, an employee of CBS, or Eric Braeden. Albeit, it’s a nice gesture being compared to “The Mustache”.

    • mary512

      Laurel>>> Innocent people are not only fired,but go to prison for years,and if their lucky ,it’s discovered they are innocent, and they get out..If he were really guilty,he would be out for good..

      • Laurel Twist

        A formal announcement of return has not been made, & hopefully, never will be made. Innocent men do not stay silent, either.

        • http://unknown.com Bexx

          Amen! With his reputation, there is no way he would stay silent. I hope CBS will look to the future, no need to undo what’s done.

            Do you believe in innocent until proven guilty at all? You come across like a spurned woman, who was treated badly by a man, or men, so therefore hate them all, LoL. Seriously look at the facts! Do you not find it odd that no charges were filed? If he had done something that warranted being fired to that young girl – he would be defending himself in court. No charges, no proof. How do we know the girl actually accused him of these things? She could very well be a pawn in JMP’s game. That woman is doing her best to ruin Y&R. If anyone should have charges filed against them its JMF for attempted murder of Y&R! Innocent until proven guilty, not: Your a man, so you did it!!!

We have the cutest solid black Mini Schnauzer ever and she has not only run my life for the past 10yrs – she runs the house, LoL. She is adorable!! For the record, if there was 1 bit of proof in regards to MM I would immediately jump on the ban him bandwagon. I just have a strong, gotta see some evidence requirement. It would break my heart to find out he did indeed do such a horrible thing. My gut tells me he didn’t – for whatever thats worth, LoL. Have a peachy day :o)

    • Herekittiez

      Yes they are. They are also locked-up in jail, as well. Mostly innocent men get convicted before the true ones are. Unless, you were a fly on the wall, it’s pretty snide of you to think that he ACTUALLY did anything, dontcha think? Pretty snide and arrogant, imo.

  • Donna

    Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty. Some of you are saying he is guilty and will stop watching if he returns, You say he kept silent and that’s proven guilt? what if he has a legal case with CBS or is planning to defend himself. As silent as he has been so has HK. I don’t see her going to the media piping her side of the story either. there has been so much speculation who knows if we will ever know what occurred. If he is hired back apparently the network wanted it so. I am a supporter of MM as there has never been any proof just speculation as to what happened. I have no bad feeling for HK either. I don’t think we will ever know what happened.

    • http://unknown.com Bexx

      Perhaps things wouldn’t have gotten so sour if his fans were not still out attacking Hunter. Wanting her lose her job, and wanting other deplorable things to happen to her despite the fact that she’s never publicly spoken. If you want to be the voice of reason try starting with his rabid fans.

    • Herekittiez

      Yup, very well said. How come HHK hasn’t spoken? Especially, when Kristoff saint john and MTS and EB has all run their mouth about the entire situation.

  • Amy

    Please contact Steve Mosko at Sony Pictures Entertainment and ask an apolgoy be given (each) to Mr. Muhney and the actress thrown under the bus and to us, the fans, and to please promptly hire back Mr. Muhney and establish a kind and professional workplace at the Young and the Restless. If the other castmates do not like Mr. Muhney then they will be like the rest of us who have to work with people we do not like at our jobs (every day, and paid a lot less to do so, and with a lot less adoration from fans).

    Mr. Steve Mosko can be reached by asking for him at 310-244-4000, fax to 310-244-2626. Email him at [email protected]

    And, please tell him, Mr. Mosko, thank you in advance for correcting the shows mistake, rehiring Mr. Muhney, and finally establishing a PROFESSIONAL work environment over at The Young and The Restless.

    • Natasha Jones

      Done

    • http://unknown.com Bexx

      No. Because you are still blaming his firing on his costars which leads me to believe that you’re one of his silly fans who blame people like Eric Braeden for him being fired. NO one should have to work in an hostile environment. This has nothing to do with whether or not he is disliked. Muhney himself admitted to causing trouble on the set. Sony/CBS eliminated the problem, they owe him nothing but a final paycheck.

      • Amy

        I have great respect for Mr. Braeden’s acting ability and how he has made the show so worth watching for so many years. In fact I contacted Sony some time ago about getting his contract settled when it was stalled. I am not blaming anyone because I have no idea at all what happened. What I do know is that Mr. Muhney is a very talented actor who makes Mr. Braeden’s character and the other characters much much more interesting to watch. We all have to work with people we do not like or who have big egos. The show, and Mr. Braeden’s character would be very fortunate to have Mr. Muhney return to the show, and I, for one, do hope and request that Mr. Mosko and others in charge will do all they can to make that happen.

        • http://unknown.com Bexx

          Fair enough, but Sony does not owe Muhney any apologies. There was never any evidence to suggest that Sony/CBS leaked the story to the blogs. I doubt that the story came from anyone at the top. The problem I have is your unwillingness to lay any blame on the real perpetrator. You’re not only demanding that Y&R create some sort professional environment to accommodate a fired actor, but you’re also blaming them for not having one in the first place.

          Muhney admitted publicly to causing his own demise, so how you say that the cast members have to sit on their hands and deal with a problematic co-worker is beyond me.

          If (and that’s a huge if) he was to return,

        • http://unknown.com Bexx

            Actually, the only one who owes Micheal Muhney an apology is KSJ, MTS EB, AND HHK, imo.Also, JFP.

        • rose

          You are so right. The characters eork sell together on the show. Adam just happens to allow the others to give more substance to the show. However, it is simply nothing but good entertainment.

          • sands of time

            DAYS wants him in the role of EJ!

          • Herekittiez

            I hope that you’re right!! Maybe there is a small glimmer of hope for MM!! The fans want our Adam Newman back as Michael Muhney..;)

        • JHW

          Agree! I hope the rumor that he is returning is true.

        • Deb

          I agree one hundred percent. We dont know what happened but lets move on now. And yes I believe rating will go up and stay there if Mr.Muhney is brought back. Yes it has to do with the writing and story line too but fans have stuck thru some pretty bad stories on y&r. I believe many fans will return if he returns as Adam Newman. Remember you can jump ship but you can also pull a bunch of people back on the ship too. It is in your hands now.

      • Herekittiez

        He never admitted to anything, as far as the rumours being spread. If he does return that’s a plus plus for CBS and their ratings will sky rocket. No proof was made as to why Mr. Muhney was actually fired. No charges filed with the police etc. If that actually did happen why did HHK not file charges in return.

        • http://unknown.com Bexx

          If he returns ratings will increase partly due to interest, the show will not be able to sustain any marginal gain for the long haul. Higher than average soap ratings are never depended upon one actor, it’s about quality writing, good stories that appeal to a larger audience, and a talented cast. NOT one man. Also, whether or not there is any proof to the allegations, Sony wanted him gone. They presented their reason(s) to CBS and it was sufficient enough to cause little qualms on the part of CBS.

          • Herekittiez

            I agree with you on some part of this. Except the person who played Adam newman made the ratings go up. The fans loved him and that’s why the viewing poles came in. Same goes for Michelle Stafford and Billy Miller. We all loved those actor’s, without the viewers there cannot be a rating count. I do understand Neilson counts specific types of viewers, however if those viewers are not happy with the content that the network is putting out or finds out that their beloved actor went to another network. Guess what is going to happen? Technically speaking, there was no evidence MM did what he was accused of. If there was police would of been involved by now. I my self would love to see one of these rumours come true on June 9th, but I have a feeling that it’s a publicity stunt from JFP, if so she sucks, imo. the show is going down hill. I only watch for one reason, but I will go where ever MM lands.

        • sands of time

          He will be the new EJ on DAYS!

      • Deb

        Come on now. Do not dismiss those of us who are fans of MichaelMuhney. Calling us silly fans. We enjoyed M.M. ‘s acting and saw his talent as a really convincing role as Adan Newman. He has great skills or he would not have as many fans as he does. I’m willing to go back to watching y&r again if he returns. If he chooses to go to another soap i will watch which ever one it is. Either way works for me. I dont know where you work but a lot if us have to work in hostile enviroments. In a perfect world everyone would get along and go to work because we love it not because we need the money. It’s a tough world out there. Which is why getting to watch some great acting on tv helps us get thru the day.

    • sands of time

          MM could easily be hired at DAYS, a more worthy work environment!!! The show with heart, Days of our Lives.

          JPF ruined Y&R.

          Look for Eileen on DAYS in July!!!

  • lucy2010

    Please let it be true–I’ve got my fingers crossed! I kept expecting to read that a new actor had started in his role during sweeps because even if the new guy was a complete fail people would tune in out of curiosity and boost Y&R ratings during that important time. I confess I would have if only temporarily. Since that didn’t happen, maybe they really are going to swallow their pride and beg him to come back to rescue their sinking show especially considering how well the David Tom casting worked out. On the surface if I were MM I wouldn’t want to go back, but the reality is being brought back would be the most convincing public declaration by Y&R that the rumors were false. Additionally it would be a clear message to EB that MM is just as important as he is to the success of the show. Then, when he was ready, MM could leave on his own terms without lingering questions damaging his reputation. Hope, hope, hope he’s back.

    • sands of time

      He’s going to DAYS!

      • cr

        I know that you have said this over and over, but then why would he be at the Y&R studios and not Days. THINK THINK

      I would like to see Paul live on Y&R

    He should tell Y&R to piss off.

  • Carol Williams

    He is the only reason the show would get better. He was the best actor. I do not think I will even watch it if they replace him. How do you know he was the guilty one. I know of a lot of women that ruined a man’s life because of their false accusations.

  • Lynn

    I think Eric Braeden had a big part in why MM was let go…..he disliked him emensley and Eric (Victor) probably gets his way as he does playing Victor or just being the head honcho he is. I think he and Summer got together and drummed up the story to get MM fired. Eric gets what he wants just as Victor does. sad to say. Doubt he’ll be hired back, as Eric would not be happy, even though I heard someone say he is retiring soon.

  • Ana

    Keep saying it! Until he say am back wount believe what anybody said , after all it’s rating season (July 3 to end of July ) all a game! That arrogant biatch (phelps) ain’t going to apologize for the mayor screw up ! Little less ( if we the fans don’t put the pressure on ) admire she can’t replace real actors for her friends!

  • nanaboo

    I’m glad David Tom is Out, I hate anyone has to lose their job, but he could NOT replace Billy MIller!! Not sure if this new guy can fill the bill!! Sorry!! MM needs to come back as Adam Newman! I don’t like Elaine Davidson as Kristen on Days, she needs to come back to Y&R full time!!

  • Days Fan

    I really don’t want him to go back to Y & R and gain ratings back. I hope it gets cancelled. It’s so boring and painful to watch! The show’s name should be the OLD and the BORING, not the Young and the Restless. Y & R let this go too long and the damage can’t be repair
    Please Days hire MM as the new EJ -he’s perfect for the role! Days would bring in millions of ex Y & R viewers. Sweet revenge!

  • lyte

    MM is an extroadaner, a one of a kind actor,the best! However its a shame he was let go, maybe he comes back. Y&R knows he’s irreplaceable, but they not gonna admit it. I think they jus like sayn things like this just to see the responses from the fans, “our reactions”!! I only got one thing to say, ” stop playing with our emotions CBS”!!!

  • Deb

    Hope he does cone back…may have sone problems with being a little out there, but he is excellent in this part!

  • Amanda

    I’m not coming back unless MM is brought back as Adam and that’s that!

  • kake

    So why didn’t they get Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford as well before they went to another soap.??? Thought they had hired someone already? Emmys rewarded Y & R but did that solidify JFP in her job even though the audience has dropped significantly. She needs to go.

    • Robert Smith

      I think it was just time for Michelle Stafford to move on, in her mind, to play another character, to search for something else. It happens. Perhaps she was offered more money on GH and had to wait until a slot for a character to arise. With Billy Miller, Y&R would not honor his new contract which stipulated he wanted extra time off the show to pursue other projects so he then departed Y&R. GH decided to honor that contract and that’s why he’ll be there. Too many great actors from Y&R are defecting to other soaps. Either B&B or GH.. Perhaps working on the set with those in power is not so great. Cliques and all..

  • Linda

    I so hope they bring Michael back to the Adam role. He commanded the role. When you have an actor with such a presents it is next to impossible to replace. Grant EB. Has been in the role for many yrs, he made the role his very early on. There wasn’t anyone that could have taken that role over either. That would go for many, not all, on the show. Michael did claim the role, right out of the gate. We can hope.

  • Jonnie Rolph

    MM made his role as Adam, Bill Miller did the same as Billy Boy Abbot and Steve Burton can’t be replaced as Jason Morgan. I know Bill Miller replaced David Tom and when DT came back fans were in an uproar. Whatever reason Miller left he needs to know his fans miss him. The newest Billy isn’t getting much support but he is way better than DT. I’ve read spoilers that say Trevor St. John might replace Adam, he is the only soap actor who can come close to filling MMs shoes. When Trevor played Todd Manning on OLTL he was awesome, he has the talent to pull off Adam Newman.
