Sean Kanan is in the news this week starting with Soap Opera Weekly claiming Sean Kanan was fired from Y&R. However Kanan, who is currently on recurring status, in this week’s Suds Report from TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco told the reporter exclusively that he has not been let go. “They scripted a short-term storyline for me with a beginning, middle and end to test the waters and gauge viewer reaction to Deacon. Paul Rauch assures me that I’m still on the show because my entry into Genoa City has been very successful from all angles. Deacon may be off for a while until the writers have time to pen me a bigger storyline. Now would be the perfect time for Deacon to briefly visit [B&B].”
Suds report goes on to say that: “Kanan is upset over messages on the Sony and CBS Y&R board claiming he was fired because he had allegedly fallen off the wagon. “I’m livid,” he announces. “My family, friends and eight-year-old daughter reads these message boards. These accusations are libelous — and not true. I’ve worked my Goliath ass off to be sober, so I resent these anonymous posters trying to ruin my career. I’m proud that I’m sober, so for them to state otherwise is just astounding and cruel. I’m just a father trying to make a living here, people.”
