And it’s the story that just keeps on giving, unfortunately! Now longtime soap veteran, Jerry Douglas, who currently plays the ghost of his former Genoa City patriarch, John Abbott, weighed-in on the dismissal of Michael Muhney as Adam Newman from The Young and the Restless!
In an interview with Rumor Fix, Douglas starts off by saying the beloved creator and head writer of the number one soap opera, Bill Bell would be,”turning over in his grave” over the behind the scenes drama that has played out all over social media!
Douglas went on to say about Muhney’s setside behavior: “I watched him work a couple of scenes with Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) and there were a lot of battles that went on there that were unnecessary. Eric is an old pro and does good work. This guy seemed to be high strung and emotional. He would just blow up in the middle of the scene for things that aren’t that important. Eric told me this (heated arguments) has been going on for a long time … I know the producer has had meetings with him because I saw Michael walking out looking upset.”
The veteran actor went on to say about Muhney: ” Sony and the producers showed tremendous patience by not firing him long ago.”
