200 January 11th, 2014 Kristoff St. John Tweets To Former Y&R Castmate Michael Muhney To “Please Set The Record Straight …”

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Another concerned cast member from The Young and the Restless has come forward regarding what has gone down on social media and the like, since the Michael Muhney (Adam) controversy story broke, and this time it’s Daytime Emmy winner Kristoff St. John who plays Neil Winters on the top rated CBS soap.

However, St John is asking for some public assistance from the very popular fired star to help out his former cast members, and the show, who are taking tremendous heat from outraged fans of the series because of Muhney’s dismissal!

St. John tweeted very earlier in the morning to Muhney, “@michaelmuhney Please set the record straight, for those of us that have to take the abuse from the fans. It’s hard to watch and read. #Bro

What do you think of Kristoff’s point and sentiments?  Some fans have voiced that it is not Muhney’s place to say anything, but Sony’s.  Other have wanted to hear from Muhney as more accusations came to light throughout the last few weeks.

You can see St. John’s tweet to Muhney after the jump! Then, let us know your thoughts!

    It would be nice if this scandal could reach some point of closure, but somehow I doubt that point will be MM ‘setting the record straight’ if he said he did it he opens himself up to lawsuits, if he said he didn’t nobody is going to believe it -
    best for MM to say nothing at all, he was the one fired, so he has no obligation to make anybody else feel better.

    Perhaps your cast mates should have kept quiet KSJ. They couldn’t wait to bash Michael. I’ve watched that show since day one and would have never guessed the actors on the show were so ruthless. EB is the one that needs to check his mouth and ego at the door. I stopped watching Y&R a few weeks ago, I’m just sorry I had so many years invested in it. No, Michael owes no one from the show anything. With the exception of Peter Bergman and Sharon Case the rest are backstabbers.

    Sandy, I’m with you completely. I love Peter Bergman and Sharon Case. I was DVRing to watch MM’s scenes only because he said he gave his very, very best on the last three episodes. When I watch, until 1/31/14, I just watch his scenes. I really hope all of MM’s supporters stop watching after 1/31. We have to stand strong and show CBS and Y&R that fans DO matter.

    I agree with you Sandy. If anyone is full of hubris it’s Eric Braedon. I also think its funny that JFP and the pres of daytime tv believes this will all blow over, its not and it wont. She didn’t learn anything from her ouster from GH or the fact that soap fans can complain for years. Both women are CLUELESS!

    Gayle Gonzales replied

    so appauding you Sandy !

    Amy Martin replied

    I agree. I thought I loved these characters – but now that they have become people I am starting to feel disgusted. Sony and CBS has handled this horribly. Two actors have both been slandered, or at least that is the way it seems. Fans went all out to help Eric Braden a few years ago. Doesn’t Mr. Braden realize that having MIchael Muhney’s incredible acting skills in his (Victor’s) antagonist, Adam, has made the show a much superior show. CBS and Sony owe the two actors and us the fans a big apology. If Mr. Muhney did what the gossip says he would have been fired outright – as he should have been (it is the law – such an act is a crime in 2013) — so both actors have been subject to all this gossip. More drama with all these tweets than on the show itself. Please Sony and CBS apologize to the actors and the fans. And, hire Mr. Muhney back. — And, please, actors do not take our voiced admiration of Mr. Muhany;s acting – that has made your show so much better — to be “abuse” — THAT is hard to read.

    Hunter King I am sorry your name has gotten out there. That should never have happened and Sony and CBS and the writer from TMZ are to blame. A real crime though would and of course should have ended in an arrest.

    Pam replied

    I so totally agree with you. They bashed him in a underhanded way and think we can’t pick up on it. They make me sick. Just like you, I’ve been watching this show for decades and no longer want to watch a bunch of rats.

    lee lee replied

    so agreed. I am so sorry to remove y and r from my dvr, but it only makes me sad to watch it…victor continuing to be an ass (oh, life imitating art), Billy cheating on his wife (as if), Billy miller leaving, what’s up with Hartley Sawyer being axed?, the character of Sharon being continually ruined, the departure of Michelle Stafford, the debacle of the Michael muhney firing. So sorry to see the demise of my favorite soap…gee, wonder who is responsible.

    BB replied

    Agreed. All of the people who have been with the show side with EB. He wanted MM, who is the best actor on the show hands-down, fired & when EB wants someone gone – they’re gone! MM would have had a pattern of sexually abusing women if that were the case & I’m sure if it happened, more women would have come out by now to continue the MM bashing. I’m bery disappointed with Y & R.

    KM replied

    IA that the rest of the cast should not be airing the show’s dirty laundry on social media and then expecting MM to come forward to take the heat off them. Having said that though, the lack of even token good wishes for the future from the vast majority of his co-stars speaks volumes. It seems clear there were behind the scenes behavior problems. MM admitted that himself and took responsibility for his firing. I’m not sure what else there is to say at this point. Everyone needs to just let it go.

    Gayle Gonzales replied

    Well said Luke!! I agree MM has no reason to worry about St John!

    St. John is ONLY worried about his own rear end! His story line is boring and pathetic just like his character! Fans do not care about his bs opinion! They care about Michael’s railroading! The punishment does not fit the crime (“if” he even did it)! This loyal fan will exit with Michael Muhney! Bravo to Sharon, Melissa and Peter! I hope CBS doesn’t retaliate on you all now for supporting him!

    Mika replied

    I would guess very few of the actors tweeting an opinion really know the truth.

    Can you believe the nerve. They fire MM and now they want him to set the record straight and defend them. I don’t see anyone defending him at CBS so why should he. It’s very hurtful SZima. The man needs to have some peace. They’ve hurt the man enough and should just let him be. I lost all respect for the show and the people in it. I’m done!!!

    Geri Bowling replied

    I agree with you Pam. The cast was so full of themselves they did not stop to think how much the fans loved MM so instead of helping him they put him and us down now they have figured out they were in the wrong and they want MM to help them, its almost comical. I stopped watching the show the day MM was fired and I am done with them. Not only did they mislead us into thinking they were one big happy family on the show, we were told in no uncertain terms that we do not matter. HELLO

    Elizabeth North replied

    The most pathetic story line on tv is the one surrounding the Winters clan … It’s nauseating (including Devon’s bs inheritance)! Kristoff’s character is pathetic …! Will no longer watch this ship sink! Shame on all of you who crucified this man! Respect only to Sharon, Peter and Melissa!

    Elizabeth…YOU SAID IT PERFECTLY!!!!! Devon’s so-called inheritance storyline (or whatever) is such a joke…Blah Blah Blah Blah. As for Neil…he HAS ALWAYS BEEN overly-moral and self-righteous…BLECH!!!!! Cane and Lily have become B-O-R-I-N-G, Tyler and Leslie aren’t helping matters much (storyline-wise) and Mason and Hilary are BEYOND UNWATCHABLE. Again…BLECH!!!!! I wish that Y&R would bring back the character of Malcolm Winters. Unlike that stuffy Neil, MALCOLM ROCKS!!!!! And, Elizabeth…I LOVED your Ambien comment. LOL!!!!! And very true. Yep.

    Elizabeth North replied

    The Winters storyline is better than Ambien (yawn)! CSJ and EB were jealous of MM fan base and success! MM has been carrying the show for a while now! It will fail without him! This lifelong fan will exit with Michael Muhney!

    Y&R has been destroyed. Neil, Devon, Lily, Cane and company BORING!!! The whole group is like watching paint dry……….Nikki whining and wringing her hands; Lily looking down her nose at everyone; Victor becoming the most vicious, nasty man ever that just listening to his speeches about “my family” is a joke and an offense to anyone who truly values family. I realize this is a story but it is becoming offensive, and it is no longer entertaining and that is what it should be. You through away some of the best actors you had and ruined the show in the process…………

    I think Y&R are lining up all cast members to try and save a failing show. I was already thinking about no longer watching Y&R because the new story lines are SO bad. But after finding out that Billy & Adam were no longer going to be on the show. That was it for me. When they both finish being shown, I will go back to GH. I use to watch both since the time slots were different. Now I will just be a GH fan, and wait for the cancellation of what use to be the greatest soap ever

    I personally dont care now about the show, Neil(Kristoff) hasnt had a part in a long time, I think of him as like a fill in now, I hope the show gets cancelled now that Michael Muhney has been fired.. Not to mention they are taking Michael off now and he is playing the best part of his life on the show now,,, which makes it even worst. With Chelsa and Connor, stupid Eric (victor) same old role. I can say this as I have watched this show almost since it began..

    Jinx Arthur replied

    I have also watched this show since Day One. Now I’m watching it go down in flames and laughing my ass off. ADAM was the show!! No one will ever replace him. Billy Miller can’t be replaced either. Whereas, Victor needs to be put out to pasture. They were all intimidated by the fact that Michael stole the whole show. We tuned in to see him.

    marynelle replied

    My sentiments exactly as far as Victor is concerned. Same old dialog and he mumbles and you can hardly understand what he says. I really thought MM was the future of NE as they’ve never written Nick as a strong son. I’ve been watching since the beginning too and I’m through. Watched Days from the beginning and when Peter Reckell left, I hadn’t watched since. The ruined Bo and Hope, the best thing that ever happened to Days.

    Pam replied

    I agree with you and hope that show is cancelled. Adam and Billy. What kind of madness is going on over there. Has MM really been fired because of jealousy and envy over the fact that he had a better role and was the show. Wow, that so low down. I think if I had to work with a bunch of back stabber everyday, I’d be upset too. I miss him already and hate what they’ve done to him.

    I Love GH replied

    I disagree. This show is number one. He did something seriously wrong or the entire cast would not be talking about it. They’ve never done this before, so lets give credit to all of these actors.

    Sandy replied

    That is a stupid statement. How do you KNOW he did something seriously wrong? Were you there? This is the USA where people are innocent until PROVEN guilty. That’s what you base your opinion on “they’ve never done this before”!

    Crystal replied

    Screw the other actors. They have disrespected their fans by the things they have said. They don’t give a crap about their fans so I can give that right back to them. Not many people believe that he did that to HK. He was just too popular the other castmates couldn’t stand it. He blew them all out of the water and he knew it. He was cocky and expected perfection in his work and he is amazing!

    MarieG replied

    So, all these actors are having their say against MM. I say.. WHERE’S THE PROOF??? I’m tired of these other actors playing judge and jury! What about King?? Why doesn’t she prove what she has accused Michael of? WHO says MM did something “seriously wrong”? Most of the cast is just following the leader here, just like cattle. NONE of them truly know the TRUTH. There was NO trouble on Y&R until Phelps showed up on the scene.

    Bob Brannigan replied

    1000% percent correct. ALL of the actors have silently and loudly kept a solidarity about this subject. One Bad Apple. I feel bad for the actors that have to defend themselves, and their fellow co-stars. Its blatant and obvious, that MM went off the deep end. Mu understanding is that he alienated EVERYONE on that set, cast and crew alike. He picked on everyone from the stage managers, grips and cameramen. He went into tirades and refused to shoot scenes unless people were removed from his line of sight. He was trying to assume utter and complete control by usurping anyones authority and power, especially that of Victor Newman, Eric Braeden. He probably wanted to be EB. I bet the groping is just a small part of a MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM. He is talented though. Sad to see him go. But the iconic show will live on of course. The actors will get their day, to clear everyone behind the scenes who have had to silently suffer, without being able to SPILL THE REAL BEANS, about a very serious issue.

    Olivia Kerr replied

    The ratings are up because of MM. Fans love and support him no matter what. The fans care about his welfare (health, family and career). The cast are talking due to pressure from fans and execs. Just like any employee in the workplace, they fear their jobs, even the rest of the staff/excess.

    You would be surprised about the power of the fans. MM gives the fans a stellar performance and they will support him until the end of January.

    Gayle Gonzales replied

    Sandy you are right Gh there is no proof!!!

    Fred replied

    Bob, I suppose what you’re really saying is ” don’t disagree with GRAMBO forget about his fisticuffs threats where he tells u he’ll knock your teeth out. Forget that he doesn’t read a script until the day of the shoot and changes all of the dialogue as Jeanne Cooper says in her book. Forget that because of his ad libs none of the dialogue you memorized makes any sense. After all no actor would have a problem with that, right Bob?” EB is the Hitler of daytime TV. He also insisted in the Schictor storyline that upset Sharon Case and her fan base. EB has a grudge because MM came to Sharon ‘s defense when no one had the guts to stand up for her. I call that admirable not a BAD APPLE.

    @Crystal

    Love all your post.

    “…They have disrespected their fans by the things they have said.”

    or, are, “…not saying”

    love this the most: “…He blew them all out of the water and he knew it.”

    LOL… Michael Muhney is an amazing Talent.

    I’ll continue to sing and praise how much he brought to the table… the production… at CBS…

    that is now so seriously, deprived… and, as a whole… from TPTB, to the EP, Jill Farren Phelps… to the cast… (crew I high 5).

    LOL… heck… the behind the scenes… crew…must be hamming it up… and truly, having the last laugh….

    how lackluster the writing continues to be… cringe worthy production

    I’m sorry… to all the fans… who’ve supported for decades… how beloved Genoa City, once was.

    Pam replied

    If you think we buy that statement you can keep dreaming “I Love GH”. I don’t believe that he’s guilty for one second. MM is a good person and doesn’t deserve what being done to him and his family. We believe in MM and want the best for him and won’t let liars tear him down.

  3. Mo says:

    I don’t know whose place it is. I’m sure it is very hard on MM. Accusations of harassment, unprofessionalism–he’s got hi family to think of and a livelihood that appears to be going down the toilet with each day.

    And then Y&R is being hauled through the scandal sheets. I’m sure it’s not a fun time to be a Y&R employee. I just have to think that this could all have been handled better. If MM got into fights with co-workers, was he counseled? I know where I work there is a discipline route that would happen if this happened where I work. It seems like Y&R just allowed it to fester until it blew up. I don’t know as I wasn’t there.

    I would hope MM is consulting with a lawyer, manager, PR, etc.

    I also think Y&R needs to bring in a therapist for it’s employees. I’m sure the SONY EAP is getting calls.

    I agree. Between the tweets, the interviews and that TMZ story (which I find hard to believe was not leaked by Angelica McDaniel considering her spouse’s ties to the show) it has riled things up to the point that I don’t see people ever believing whatever is revealed as the true story. Some will always blame MM and some will always defend him.

    Overall, the entire incident has soured many people on Y&R…something that could effectively kill the show. That is if the poor storylines and cast turnover and introduction of JFP pets wasn’t already stabbing a knife into it. Personally, I have not even bothered to watch because I am just not entertained by the current stories. If the show were better cast changes would have little to no effect on viewing it.

    Mo…The Y&R cast and The Powers That Be seeking therapy??? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Mo…forgive me but I had to laugh. Anyway, I can just see BOTH Eric Braeden and Jill Farren Phelps in a therapist’s office…LOL!!!!! And, in general, can you imagine all of those Y&R EGOS together in one room??? I think that the poor therapist would eventually have a nervous breakdown after dealing with all of those Y&R EGOS at one time. YIKES!!!!!

    Why would Michael Muhney do this? His name has been totally trashed by TMZ and his other cast members. Eric Braeden’s egotistical interview was a condemnation of Mr. Muhney’s existence on Y&R. I like Mr. St. John, but he knows anything Mr. Muhney would say is being monitored by lawyers on all sides of this sorry mess. The best thing for all involved is to stay off of twitter and let the healing begin. I’m certain that Mr. Muhney has no desire to ever set foot near Y&R’s set. He just wants to move forward with his life. Mr. St. John should do the same.

    Pam replied

    That’s so true. The best thing for M. Muhney is say nothing and lawyer up. You see, that’s the thing I don’t get either. Why would a married man of 3 children who is on top of his game as an actor want to ” grope” some little girls breast. Hunter is a kid. There are so many beautiful age appropriate women around. It seems like they wanted him out and had to create this accusation to do it. A lot of these actors are really careful of what they do. I don’t believe he would ever do that and feel that Y&R cast are vicious and cunning.

    I’m pretty sure Kristoff is well aware that MM is being silent on the advice of his lawyer but because many of the general public doesn’t think of this fact, it’s just another way to make MM look bad to the fans, as if his silence is an admission of guilt or his choice to hid in the shadows. It looks like Y&R PR are on their toes in what they are suggesting some cast share and what not ( elude to any MM support) to share. don’t think they aren’t being coached as to what they can and can’t say, I mean Kristoff is tweeting this now, and other damaging tweets, but on Dec 18th his tweet sounded VERY supportive of MM. Now if everyone on the set is so ‘in the know’ as Kristoff mentioned in another tweet, why was he calling MM a ‘good man’ and saying he was floored ? –

Tired of s/ls….. same ole same ole and really tired of how they’ve ruined Victor and Sharon. I’m done.

    Pam replied

    Well I get it, that why I don’t know why the cast members are trying to get MM to speak publicly. Maybe they’re trying to make Mr. Muhney dig himself a hole since the hole they plotted for him may not be big enough for their liking. Muhney needs to say nothing more and deal with this trash in court.

    Exactly, Michael’s silence isn’t an admission of guilt. IF the accusations were true there would be other “victims” coming forth. I don’t see anyone else accusing Michael of anything. I never cared for Hunter King either. KSJ, what a lame attempt to lure Michael into this mess. He’s far too intelligent and I’m sure he is listening to his attorney’s advice. If I were you, KSJ, I would keep my resume’ updated. Just sayin’! Remember, you may be the next one to get stabbed in the back…..

    He has no obligation to “set the record” straight. As someone else said earlier if he admits to it he opens himself to lawsuits and even maybe a criminal investigation depending on the context of said incidents– if he denies it, in this day and age of so many phony denials by scandal ridden celebs and politicians who would believe him?

    In the end they fired him, he owes them nothing to help the show, but I seriously don’t think it would help even if he did speak out The show will succeed or fail based on the storytelling and the powers that be willingness to produce it.

    Note to all the other actors you should say no comment and do your job, which is to act, not get involve in what is essentially a management issue- and fans should just move on and stop bugging the other actors about it, because what they think or don’t think isn’t going get anyone to hire MM back at this point.

    What is shocking is that anyone would support Muhney after all the comments by his cast mates. I recall one actor that came to his defense just days after he was terminated but have not heard another word about that. There was a video also that was posted on youtube, not sure if it’s still up.

    What is shocking to me is some folks can’t comprehend that others have a right to SUPPORT whomever they want; and that all these comments from Muhney’s co workers have simply shown that there is an orchestrated smear campaign going on; with no one in an official capacity at Y and R saying anything on the record of why this man was let go.

    The video you seem to want to dismiss was from someone who worked CLOSELY with Muhney for the four years he was on that set. If Muhney was the monster some of his co workers are trying to insinuate he is, Ms. Case would be the one who should know first hand what his behavior on set was. She seem to support him to the FULLEST.

    Mellissa Clair Egan also seem not to have joined the witch hunt and she worked closely with him. She said goodbye to him on twitter the same as she did Billy Miller.

    I don’t know what record Kristoff wants Muhney to set straight but the man did say, right after he was fired his ego was out of hand and he took responsibility for his firing All the on record claims from his co workers have been about his ego and fights with Eric Breaden; NO ONE has come out on record and validated the NASTY rumor that he groped boobs, so is this the record Kristoff wants set straight????? All the claims of groping boobs have been rumored by unnamed sources. Maybe Kristoff should ask his bosses to clear the record, Muhney owes NO ONE at CBS, Y and R a damn thing.

    The point that everyone seems to be missing is the fact that Sony/Cbs/JFP have All remained silent on this issue letting the news leak as it may and leaving it up to several cast members to do fan damage control instead of addressing the issue straight out. In light of these horrific allegations the only recourse for MM was and is silence. Golden for MM bad for the show. What I have a truly bad feeling of in this whole situation is this. #1 Sony/Cbs have much faith in JFP’s talents and vision for Y&R and have therefor allowed this whole debaucle to take place. They are looking at rising numbers and the fact that though you may be angry and frustrated fans for all their blustering STILL watch. They ain’t no dummies. But #2 and the worst is that Maria Arena Bell suddenly is speaking out of nowhere even after her firing. This leads me to suspect one thing. These incidents happened during the course of her tenure and in order to not mar the integrity of the Bell’s show and it’s ratings climb she squashed whatever allegations were brought forth. Once the new regime took hold whoever made these allegations went to JFP’s with the entire sordid episode(s) and JFP took action. If this is TRULY the case then MM has ALOT of explaining to do and a very damaged reputation to boot. Unfortunately this may be much truer than we all think. For the time being though, his former castmates need to STAY OFF twitter/facebook/blogs and let this whole thing play out. And it’s up to JFP’s to see that that happens and stop actors from posting willynilly trying to make MM look like a demon. SERIOUSLY!!

    Daisy the video was a tribute too MM from Sharon Case saying she was going to miss her friend/coworker it is still up. Both MCE &SC have taken the high road and acted as professionals and do not discuss it on twitter. The same goes for several male co-stars. I have sent letters to those stars and personally thanked them for not slandering either party involved.

    I still stand by my earlier post but in scrolling through the buzz I suddenly see a feed on @EricBraeden saying that MM wanted to punch his lights out after a particularly nasty on set shouting match. No doubt goaded on by the “moustache”. That being said suddenly something seems very fishy and afoot in Genoa City. Something ain’t right. And MM is right to be quiet and let the show shoot itself in the foot. The lawsuit coming down the pipe may not be spectacular but it will be something. Just wait on the fall out folks. IT WILL ALL come out in the end.

    The cast has basically trashed Muhney so he owes them absolutely nothing. He’s the one who’s life is in tatters and doesn’t have a job. Last time I looked, KSJ is running around LA in his nice car and going out to dinner having a big time. Why should Muhney care if these cast members are getting blasted on twitter. My advice: Stay off twitter.

    BTW, Sharon Case’s video is still posted as well as her supportive tweets for MM.

    Everyone is busy, including the cast, taking sides. What;s needed is a lie detector test or an official investigation and legal hearing prompted by a lawsuit if the accusations are not true.

    Yesterday just before finally tuning out Y&R, I gave it one more try and FF-ed through all but five minutes. This confirms that my decision was based on accepting that Y&R is no longer intriguing or entertaining . The lead balloon that drags it down the most for me is Eric Braedon. His part is poorly written and barely acted.

    However, this is not relevant to whether or not MM is guilty as inferred.

    Despite all that has transpired, I would certainly try watching MM in any new role on a soap or in a series as he has the looks and acting chops. He could do a feature film And if anyone is dispensable from Y&R beside the TGVN character it is the entire Winters clan, with the exception of Moses who was a darling tyke!

    The actors are being attacked because they chose to get involved! Here they are supporting HK without word one for MM. Were they not friends at one time? Two people are being dragged through the mud yet they can only support one of them. I would to be proud to call these people friends NOT. Even if he is guilty of the so called crime why are they involving themselves? Greg Rikart OMG I used to love him but sure can’ t stand him now. He is down right abusive to fans! Im suprised he has any left. Kristoff what are you trying to tell us? Sometimes I think your saying that there is no truth to it. Other times its like your handing him the key to the golden boob. I respect that Eric Braeden put his side of the story out there. Jerry Douglas what the hell was that? This is an awful situation and in my opinion if MTS and DD would have kept there mouths shut from the get go none of this would have come out. They opened up a can of worms with there “tragic situation” “more to the story” crap!

    If I was MM and was not guilty of groping HK I would be closed up with my attorney and getting ready to file a wrongful dismissal suit. I wouldn’t say a word on social media at this time. I don’t know how it works in the acting industry but when I lived in California you had to have well documented history of someone’s work habits before firing them. I had a girl in my department that my boss told me to get rid of. It took six months of documentation and written warnings to her before we were finally able to fire her. This was in the aerospace industry. MM would really have a case if JFP brings in another GH alumni and I suspect she will. Probably Brandon Barash.

    EXACTLY! I told some blogger the same exact thing on Radar Online! You “just” don’t fire someone on the spot if there has been sexual harassment! After the 1st incident MM should have been brought into JFH’s office, and put on notice, “that if this happens again you’re gone.” I have from the Corporate World also, so know that their procedure is, documentation, warnings, writing the person up, then the final act is to fire the individual.

    The is NO way that this alleged inappropriate behavior should have been allowed to happen a 2nd time, when JFP knew about the 1st incident! Then someone leaked Hunter king’s name in the incident when she wanted to remain anonymous. In my humble opinion both HK, & MM have a case against CBS/Sony/JFP…

    Mary SF replied

    There is one small difference– most people in the corporate world are replaceable without too much trouble. With actors, whether be film or television there is a lot of money tied up in the talent. Yes, a popular actor playing a popular role can ultimately be replaced, but you can see here there can be a lot of backlash when it happens. Most producers really do try to work these things out privately. Depending on the star there can be a lot sweeping stuff under the rug, which would not be tolerated in corporate america. But entertainment is a business and if they could not find a way to work it out then, and only then would they fired an actor, but usually they pressure them to quit or give some other reason for the dismissal that makes everyone not look so bad. In this case it does seem, even if true, someone really had an ax to grind with MM and let this get out, when it should have been private and you are right– both HK and MM have a case against management, but my guess it would be settled behind the scenes and never make it to court– someone is going to paid off here not to make a fuss– the entertainment industry and the catholic church have a lot in common in this regard.

    Tracie replied

    Exactly, is this first alleged groping on file? Was he issued a warning of his behaviour then? Was he required to take some sensitivity training or other counselling after the first incident? All these are pretty standard with sexual harassment incidents in the workplace, that is unless the employee is removed from the workplace and fired for the incident in the first place. which again rarely happens 4-6 months after the fact, but rather immediately, within hours of the claim being made.

    I understand K. St. John’s position, and I am not team MM in this at all, but IMO, I do not believe it is up to MM to set the record straight at this point in time. I have said this before, but it is now up to the law to research the charges, and make a decision based on the findings. As fans, we do not know the whole story, nor should we, as it is not our business really, but I am sure that there is more than meets the eye to this, and IMO, it is likely that MM would not have been fired had they not found substantial reason to do so, but I think his making a statement at this time will only add more fuel to both sides of this. I think the next statement should come from the investigating team looking into this. If I were in K. St. John’s shoes, I am sure I would feel exactly the way he does, but I am not, so as an outsider, yet a fan of the show, I think at this point, both Hunter and MM should not say a word publically. Sadly, no one gains from a situation of this nature, and so many people are adversely affected. If it is true, kudos to Hunter for having the courage to come forward, ending the harassment, and showing MM that he is not “above it all”. MM is great actor, and a huge part of the show, but there is no way he should be getting away with this behavior, no one ever should. Only time will tell, how this soap opera within a soap opera will play out, but in the mean time, I am so sorry for all of those feeling the wrath of this, including all of those involved with the show and MM’s family, and most especially Hunter. As a fan of Y & R, and MM’s work, this whole thing saddens me, and I hope it truly is being looked into legally, and a factual decision is made sooner than later, so this can end.

They’re actors after all. The good thing about this mess is that the fans finally get to see what these actors are like in real life. Muhney is doing nothing by be a class act on twitter during this mess, He has not bashed his coworkers as his fellow actors are doing, he is doing nothing to fan the flames. It’s obvious now to the world that behind the scenes at Y&R, there is an atmosphere of egos, backstabbing & jealousy. Its more interesting than the show itself. Ratings will go up temporarily from the gossip until Muhney departs. Then its up to the remaining actors & storylines to keep viewers interested. With all of the major talent having left the show, guessing the ratings thereafter will tank. PS. Interesting how all of this became “news” after Muhney was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in the Emmys. Hmmmm, jealousy?

    CBS/ Sony is now getting actors from the show to plead on their behalf.
    EB had his drivel, they brought Jerry Douglas out of the woodwork to give his 2 cents worth, and now S’t John has a harangue. They are all fighting for their lives. They should have shut their big mouths. Now, what we see is a ganging up by everybody. They saw MM as a shining star who couldn’t obviously stand the favoritism going on there. We don’t care how long Victor has been on the show. It’s time he was put to pasture. It’s depressing just to look at his scowling face everyday.
    Who are they going to enlist now to plead their case?
    MM acted closely with 2 of the most beautiful actors on the show…Sharon and Chelsea. We didn’t hear any rumors from them …And we are to believe that he went after ……….!???
    Anyway, I can see this as the demise of Y&R. Karma serves only what we deserve . I have already started watching GH and DOOL .and it’s good bye to Y&R after the 30th. It is always nice to come home after work and watch a Soap opera. Some one once said “The people who watch Soap operas are the happiest people, because for one hour they get to forget their own lives and enter into the lives of others and share their joys and sorrows”. So we come to enjoy these episodes, and we come to know and love the actors, too.
    This MM episode and the loss of Billy is huge., and leaves a bitter taste in our mouths. S’t John can preach all he wants but he is only aggravating the situation, and I have a feeling they are all looking after their own backs.
    Also, after watching these other Soaps, I cannot understand how on earth Y&R ever came to be #1. Maybe, it is the Bell name, which is tarnished now.

    I never was a fan of Y&R, but to this day I do enjoy the huge contribution Bill Bell made to Days of our Lives! I was not watching DAYS when Bill was head writer, but DAYS has stuck with the core family that Bill wrote. Many characters and situations still come from the work of Bill Bell. DAYS is honoring him more than Y&R does.

    Y&R should focus on what Bill would do and not be using the MM and HK situation as a way for fans to not see how off the writing is.

    If DAYS is honoring his work, then Y&R should more so!

    If fans get tired of seeing his legacy in ruins, they can see is other DAYS.

    Michael Muhney has already taken responsibility for his firing in the interview with Nelson Branco. I thought this was a mistake on many levels. It seems the show was giving him a somewhat plausible out by recasting in 3-6 months, not immediately. Muhney was the one who tweeted he was fired, then chose to do an interview. I really think that is what started all of this. The story just could have been the show has decided to take Adam in a different direction, it happens all the time. Then Branco stoked the flames with his nasy innuendo. I think if anyone is really to blame, its Branco and his lack of proffesionalism, which has gotten him into trouble before.

Hunter King should be respected and left alone by crazed fans and MM should continue to receive support until proven guilty.

    If I had a daughter who was an actress in Hollywood, or anywhere for that matter, I wouldn’t condone it, but I would tell her to expect it. Sound stages can be a hot bed for boredom for actors waiting around for their scenes to be shot, I would tell her she will know how to handle pranks and horseplay including the juvenile kind of one actor daring another actor to see if her boobs are real. I will tell she needs to know in advance what she will do if the director under the disguise of positioning her properly for her blocking casually brushing against breasts in the process. I will tell she needs to have a plan when an actor just happens to trip in front of her and her breasts are suddenly the only thing he can grab to stop his fall. Or how to handle crew members making the sound stage colder than it needs to be just to see her nipples. And most of all she will have to know what to do to protect herself from the infamous “casting couch” where she is promised a job in exchange for favors. Any parent would be foolish not to warn their daughters about this kind of this stuff, not only in acting, but modelling, music or pretty much anywhere she has to work with men.
    The point being women don’t condone it, but we don’t put our heads in the sand and pretend it isn’t out there. I venture every female you know even your mother might have dealt with kind of thing in her lifetime, and if you are actress, most likely more than the rest of general population. And although reporting it to highers ups seems like the way to go, often it works against an actress so if she determine to stay in the business she should have her own means to deal with these grabbers– at least that is what I would tell my daughter.

If and when the Y&R fans get tired of rewarding a show for bad backstage behavior, they should reward themselves with great stories in front of the camera.

    And since everything is still rumor at this point, the cast – as some so far have – would be best off resisting the urge to jump into the fray via twitter or interviews about the subject. The ones who do wade in, such as Eric Braeden, just look pathetic.

    Muhney owes nothing to his former employer or former co-workers at this point.

    I was under the impression that performers have been telling fans to cool it and calm down. That is a horrible way to treat fans. Y&R needs to cool it and calm down. The fans can turn on them and then where will they be?

    uggh if he was told to shut up by his lawyers. why did he tweet about this in the first place so im calling it hogwash. lol I doubt he called his lawyers. he has no grounds to sue. if you ever have had the chance to view any contract it clearly states that sexual harassment in the workplace is grounds for termination. Miss King is still a teenager . Michael Muhney should thank his lucky stars that H K didn’t call the police . his reputation would have been ruinned fyi she has witnesses. it still flaws me he did it once. in front of another actor. she told him to stop. wth would he do it again no means no. his fans act like he will never be employed again if his so talented the acting jobs should be falling at his feet. Not! !!! Also Michael Muhney was not responsible for Emmy Reform. they like a huge community responsible nice try NB..

We the fans made you #1 and we the fans can make you “turn out the lights!” Alot of you made us not want to watch the show anymore by your deplorable behavior since the story broke, not to mention the “behavior” of JFP and AM!

    As most of the Comments have said, MM, is not the one who needs to come clean about anything! It is not his place. The allegations are only a RUMOR from a tabloid! It seems to me, in EB’s own words, EB didn’t get along with MM, and wanted to punch MM. Interesting too that EB came to blows in the past with PB as well. From what can be gleaned from EB’s own statements and behavior, perhaps it is EB who is difficult to get along with.. And maybe, just maybe EB rubbed MM wrong due to EB’s own admitted ad-libs! MM was the future of Y&R!!! Management is the only party that can or should set things straight in any case. Start by investigating the allegations and letting the fans know! Then if MM is not guilty of the rumored behavior, MM should be rehired and other actors told to mind their business and worry about acting. If this is not resolved, we long-time fans WILL be gone from Y&R! I am already thanks to the other actors behavior and JFP and AMcD laughing at fans and saying that we won’t stop watching now that MM is gone! We want answers from them!!!

    Wish someone would look into Blake Hood being “let go” (fired) so abruptly. Rumors swirling it was b/c of HHK accusing him of sexual harassment too. I find this hard to believe both BH and MM would both do this to her.

    I love and respect Kristoff St. John. His s/l’s have sucked and even he knows this, but he still acts his ass off and does an amazing job! I really have no idea what KSJ meant from his tweet to Michael.

    I firmly do NOT believe MM would be guilty of such allegations. He’s too intelligent of a man to risk his family & career for a boob! Come on now! Secondly, people must remember that MM throws himself entirely into his characters. He lived, breathed and bled Adam Newman. If he was “difficult” on set (during scenes), its likely because he was in character and actually reading script unlike other actors/actresses who don’t follow their scripts. That likely isn’t easy to act with someone who doesn’t read their lines as you would be thrown for a loop. MM is a true professional!

    I can not wait until he is vindicated! I’ve never doubted him for a second. #TeamMuhney loves and supports him no matter what and although we will miss him on our tv’s 5 times a week as our favorite character, Adam Newman; we know there is bigger & better things for Michael! Its time to shine!

    I think E.B. had him fired. Speaking of ego’s his has to be the biggest. MM outshined him and he was jealous of his popularity. The show has been going downhill last few years. Worst killing odd two children. Losing Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford, Jeanne, John Abbate killed off, Reed,. these new young ones don’t cut it.So many rehashed stories. How many times can Victor and Nikki get married? Can’t stand him any more. I just started dvr GH. Don’t know if I can stand it till the 30th when Billy and Michael are done. I look at the actors that trashed Michael and now resent them. He is not GUILTY. I will watch him if he gets hired some where else. I hope Days picks him up. Hope needs someone. I watched Y&R since day one, done on 1-30 if I last that long.

    First Michelle Stafford left, now Billy Miller is leaving and they have fired Michael. If anyone read Jerry Douglas interview he said MM is a fine young actor but very high strung and would blow up in the middle of scenes. If I was an actor and had all of my lines learned and someone like EB ad libbed in the middle of a scene I would be pissed off too. I cannot stand Victor or EB. That character is so obnoxious and thinks he has the right to control everyone. I’m thru with this show on January 30, also. Going to start watching Days instead. JFP already has brought two of her pets on board and expect she will recast Michael with another one. Probably Brandon Barash. I loved Brandon as Johnny on GH but even that will not be enough to bring me back. HK going into a coma next week, should be shipped off to the place where her mother is. I think the only good young actor on there is the kid that plays Noah and Fen does pretty good. But the rest all suck. And why did they get rid of another Kyle. Makes no sense to me except JFP is well known to destroy soaps and keeps getting hired. ????

    He is the problem! and a prime reason MM was turfed!

    EB is full of his own importance and HE can’t face reality. TPTB are BULLIED and harassed by him. What kind of a positive work environment does he affect.
    The dynamics changed and MUHNEY and MILLER stole the show. They were taking it to new and exciting places. The ruination of Billy Abbott into a dud was poor writing and maybe intended to diminish his role.
    If Muhney was causing problems, deal with him, don’t shoot yourselves in the foot!
    Ppl work at a marriage and its not easy, same applies here. Gee they certainly tolerated a lot from EB, the other actors are initimated by him?! They never reined him in, he’s been able to exhibit bad behavior for years and got away with it.
    Jeannie Cooper pinching young boys crotches is unspeakable, and she got away with it. Matters not if the targets said nothing, they wanted to their jobs, no?
    Management FAILED to reign in Braeden and Cooper.
    But they couldn’t reign in Muhney’s alleged issues of ego etc.

    EB is the main character of the show along with his Newman family. In every story, you have character heroes and villains. You have to have that for a good story. I really like the EB “Villain” character portrayed on the show, and I love the Adam “villain” character as well. I understand how EB and other veterans would be annoyed that some newbie, who has only been on the show for 4 years, would publicly criticize writing, colleagues, actors, etc. EB has been on the show for decades and consistently brought home the $/viewers. I work for a large computer corporation, and we also have pre-madonnas too. Pre-madonnas are typically gifted and have been around for a long time producing consistent work over a very long time period. This is why they get away with certain behaviors while others don’t. I do think the stories are the worst I have ever seen in Y&R history. However, Y&R is a large organization that has been around for 40+years. I would be furious if a newbie came in and started telling us what and how to do our work. He was out of line blowing up during scenes. In my office I have seen some newbies leave after getting out line and then being put in their place. I respect MM’s work, but he needed to know his place. If he didn’t like it, he should have moved on.

    I have watched the show from the beginning. I loved EB. I loved the original Jack Abbott too. It is time for the old characters to take the back seat. Victor Newman: been there, done that a hundred times; it’s getting very tiresome. The show is the YOUNG and the RESTLESS not the OLD and the LISTLESS. I had thought that Billy Miller and Michael Muhney would be the new generation Jack v Victor. That would have been explosive with those two actors in my opinion.

    I have loved Michael Muhney as Adam. He was a breathe of fresh air to the show. He made me hate him and love him — a great actor for the right part. But I’m ashamed of so many of these fans of The Young & The Restless. Michael Muhney has been very outspoken over the years but this he stays silent. That doesn’t make sense to me. This allegation could certainly hurt his future career so why the silence? I don’t know what went down — NONE of US do. Yet so many are ready to stand by his side. If true it is sad that a married man would throw away his job by harassing a young woman. If it isn’t true I’d be shouting it from the roof tops — I wouldn’t want the stink of this hanging over me. But silence. Odd. So with that I tend to believe there is a grain of truth to it. There is an alleged witness. Now maybe it’s not true but what is Y&R to do keep him have it happen again and be slapped with a lawsuit? Really? I don’t think so. I love being a soap fan. I love reading the boards and reading our passion. We love a character one day and hate them the next. We’ll stand by characters through many things. It’s a great genre. I was a puddle when the news Jeanne Cooper died. Literally — cried for hours. I couldn’t watch for 3 months. I dvr’d them everyday and it took me til August to get started on over 40 episodes. She was like a grandma to me. My cousin and I call each other nearly everyday to talk about the show. We’re a passionate bunch us soap fans — but with this I’ve think some have gone to far. I realize we like the actor & he kills it as Adam but if it’s true you still want him on it? You’d rather replace the aleged victim than the one at fault? That’s crazy — that’s like putting the rape victim in jail & giving the rapist a parade.

    I must ask a question though. Because as a soap fan we take things to the extreme. If it was’t tHunter King who plays Phyllis ‘ daughter would the reaction be the same. What if it was the woman who plays Lily. It almost seems like people are automatic to not believe her. Is it cause people are mixing real life with the show. Phyllis’ was a scammer at times and I’m asking this without judgement but are people mixing those feelings in? Everyone just assumes she’s lying. Which if this happened at your job to you, how would you want people to react. And to degrade the cast for standing by the show, really? Especially when Michael Muheny he has been a d-ck at times — can you blame them if they’ve already had a negative experience with him and then this comes up who would you believe? We don’t know what happened and won’t unless he files a wrongful termination lawsuit or opens up about the situation. but again just silence. BTW even his mother has asked fans to stop with the harassment.

    I know this has been a rough year. We lost Jeanne. Michell Stafford left on her on accord. Billy Miller decided to exit (after not coming to terms with contracts). We had Deila die and that was rough. Hard watching this storyline — painful. Not a fan of killing Deila cause it was unnecessary, it lessened the emotional impact happening so close to Mrs. C’s death but I love this show. I’ve been watching since I was 6/7 (way to young but it was the 80′s) so 31 years and I’m not going to quit watching cause of this firing. I wish he could of stayed on, I really do but not if this is true. I wouldn’t want my job to keep someone who harassed me. Just my thoughts on the matter.

With the exception of one or two, none of those actors and actresses could make it in primetime tv. Soaps are the best they can do. Want to thank Michael and Billy for the last days on the show. You two acted your butts off and, although a sad storyline, were the absolute best! Wishing you both success in your next endeavor. When you do land someplace, I’ll be there watching. Buh bye Y&R.
