Breaking News today: “Y&R’s” Chris Engen who plays “straight” Adam Newman reportedly walked off the set two days while under contract for refusing to kiss co-star Yani Gellman, who plays Rafe… the only ( thus far) out gay character on the show. This update in The Suds Report from Nelson Branco also details that Engen is reportedly unhappy with the dark direction his character has taken in recent months. We would assume that would include “gas-lighting” the very pregnant, Ashley and inducing his partial blindness with botox, and now perhaps, a kiss with another man? This morning insiders are saying that the top soap is working on an urgent recast for the pivotal role. Is homophobia setting in already at “Y&R” when they are finally launching their first gay male storyline in the shows 36 year history? Stay tuned.

This storyline move signals the end of the short-term run of Nick Stabile, who was filling in for Tyler Christopher in the role while the Daytime Emmy-winning actor was on personal leave from the series.
