The one and only Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) of The Young and the Restless took to Twitter today, after some tweets from one of his followers freelance celebrity writer, Rachel Monaco, and a few others, to clarify his position on the recent news of Josh Griffith departing as head writer of the number one soap, and relating that he is not upset over current or recent storylines!
Eric Braeden tweeted: “I was never upset about SL but JG’s leaving the show! There have been too many changes. In NO way did I criticize writing. At no time did I ever complain about storyline contrary to claims otherwise. I LOVE the show, but don’t like changes! I have nothing but the deepest respect for writers, they perform the most difficult job in showbiz and get the least credit. I’ve acted in all Media. Nothing is as difficult as the making of a Soap Opera. We do 80 pages a/day in 1 take Cast & Crew do a phenomenal job.”
So what do you think about Braeden’s statement? And reminding his loyal audience and those of the soaps, that the writing job in a daytime soaps is one of the toughest gigs around? Share your thoughts below!
