When a fan of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” tweeted, “Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR,“ following reports of an alleged groping of her breasts by King’s former co-star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who was reportedly fired from the drama series last month as a result of the incident, the quest for love and support for the actress, who plays Summer Newman on the daytime soap opera, came in droves.

Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Candice Stewart, best known for her stint on last season’s “Big Brother,” will appear on the Monday, January 13 episode of CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” The former beauty queen will share scenes with Redaric Williams and his character, Tyler Michaelson.
With its lineup consisting of soaps “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful,” game shows “The Price is Right” and “Let’s Make a Deal,” and talker “The Talk,” CBS Daytime posted double-digit growth during the fourth quarter in viewers compared to the year-ago period, while each series was up or even in Women 25-54 and Women 18-49. In fact, “Y&R” was first in both key women demos.
As fans of “The Young and the Restless” did in March 2011 to protest the supposed firing of cast member Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), fans of Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) have purchased a flyover of the CBS Television City studio, where the soap is taped, to get their message across to executives of their displeasure in the actor’s firing. Only this time they have taken things a step further – they’ve alerted mainstream media!
According to TMZ, the same publication that reported allegations that the actor was fired for touching the breasts of one of his co-stars, a Facebook group made up of fans devoted to the ousted soap star have pulled together $785 to fly a banner that says, “NO ADAM NEWBIE, JUST MICHAEL MUHNEY,” over the CBS studio.
It’s unclear when the banner is scheduled to make its impression.
Muhney last airs Thursday, January 30 on “Y&R.” The show does plan to recast the role, per the actor in a Huffington Post Canada interview.
Fans love it when their show goes on location, but whatever happened to exterior shots – images of outdoor locations inserted before a scene takes place between characters – which were heavily utilized on “Passions,” the now defunct NBC and DirecTV daytime soap opera?
While SOAPnet’s “General Hospital: Night Shift” may have brought a modern exterior of the famed General Hospital in Port Charles to life via its opening credits, a variation of which was subsequently used by its parent series, “General Hospital,” CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” has remained the only current soap opera consistently utilizing the exterior concept in between scenes, at least until now. The network recently began bringing life to the homes of Genoa City’s most prominent citizens in episodes of “The Young and the Restless.”
In a new interview with Highlight Hollywood, former executive producer and head writer of “The Young and the Restless,” Maria Arena Bell, has clarified a statement she made in Soap Opera Digest after the publication released their report on Michael Muhney’s firing from the daytime drama series. In it, she said, “Michael brought amazing dimension and complexity to the role of Adam Newman, and his and Sharon’s [Sharon Case] was a great dark love story. Sadly, that story was seriously derailed in the last year, so I am not surprised that the show would look for a solution to their problematic storytelling decisions. It will be a tough role to recast.” However, with a report by TMZ that says the actor was let go following alleged claims he fondled the breasts of one of his co-stars, Bell now says, “Frankly he should have been let go months before because of his behind the scenes actions.”
It had long been rumored and speculated about on social media and message boards, including the SON Community, since word of Michael Muhney‘s firing from “The Young and the Restless” first came to light. Now, TMZ is reporting that as per their sources, Muhney, 38, was fired for allegedly groping a female co-star’s breasts on more than one occasion.
Just when you thought you’d heard it all when it comes to celebrity divorces, the recent drama for “The Young and the Restless’’ star Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Winters) is adding another deliciously entertaining layer to the land of celeb Splitsville.
According to TMZ, the star and her husband, artist Radcliffe Bailey, have decided to end their four-year marriage. And because the couple had a prenup and no children, many would think the divorce should seemingly run rather smooth. That is, except for one odd detail in the settlement, which states: “Each agrees that he or she shall not in any manner disturb, bother, harass or otherwise interfere with the other party.”
How’s that for a soap opera-esque divorce agreement?
