150 April 5th, 2013 Y&R’s Michael Muhney Interview: Adam Takes A Game-Changing Bullet … But Who Has His Heart?

Intense, thought-provoking, and an actor with stunning emotional depth, are just some of the adjectives used by soap fans and pundits when they refer to The Young and the Restless resident black sheep of the Newman family, Michael Muhney!

As Adam Newman, who has seen some very dark days, and who has perpetrated some very dark misdeeds to many a resident in Genoa City, Muhney had made the role of Adam one-of-a-kind on the soap landscape.  Recently on key episodes, during Y&R’s 40th anniversary just a week and half ago, Adam took a bullet meant for his biggest adversary, his own father Victor (Eric Braeden)!  Now as he attempts to recover from the horrific chain of events, has it changed the way father/son will see each other moving forward?

And if that is not enough drama and tension to fill the room, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) is pregnant with Adam’s baby!  Will Adam finally know the truth that he is the baby daddy?  And, then there’s complicated relationship between Adam and Sharon Newman. (Sharon Case)  Does Sharon have Adam’s heart?  To try to find out the answers to these questions, we caught up with Michael Muhney at Y&R’s 40th anniversary on set celebration at CBS last week, to get his take on the latest developments in Mr. Adam’s life!

What did you think when you found that Adam was going to get shot and jump in front of a bullet meant for his father Victor?

MICHAEL:  Oh, I knew about this for many, many months.  I was excited about it, but I was more excited to see what people’s reactions would be than concerned with my own reaction, knowing the construct of where it was going to go, and what it’s going to lead to moving forword.   I thought, what a great catalyst to setting in the biggest game-changer of all, between the dynamics of a lot of the inter-relationships of the Newman family.

In a recent On-Air On-Soaps interview with Y&R head writer Josh Griffith, and executive producer Jill Farren Phelps, Josh revealed that when he took over the writing chores he thought that one of the characters that needed to be reset was Adam.  And, that in recent times, Adam had gotten away from the central core of who he is.  Would you agree with that? 

MICHAEL:  It’s an interesting way to look at it, that Adam is being reset.  And, I do agree with them, but I think Bill Bell Sr. (Creator, Y&R) never intended a Newman to go in the direction that Adam did go.  What he would have wanted was to bring Adam back in and reset a couple of situations.  It was Bill’s idea of this child born on-screen decades ago.  People have told me there was a method to his madness.  There is a reason that he was being named Victor Jr., so he can grow up far away from Genoa City and then come back.

Daytime fans always take note of your incredibly deep and complex performances.  Do you feel that the role of Adam is one of those roles that comes around once in a lifetime for an actor?

MICHAEL:  I take what I do very seriously and I have tremendously large shoes to fill, with what my character was ever intended to be, what is being reset, where it’s all headed, and what’s in store.  Adam the character is such a catalytic, driving, central character… and he is Victor 2.0!   I purposely say that because he is not a Victor Jr. incarnation.  He is not “Jr.” who is under a shadow.  He is a different twist with an upgraded version.  He is not exactly the same, but very similar.  But when Bill Bell constructed this, I am the lucky sonofabitch that happened to fall into that role, and get my hands dirty with it now, because where it sits … the sky is truly the limit!

The big debate: Which woman does Adam truly love?  Is it Sharon?  Or, is it Chelsea?  I don’t even know anymore! (Laughs)

MICHAEL:  I don’t have a political answer.  I like listening to you have an argument about it with yourself right now.  I am finding that the rhetoric is: “No, it’s Sharon!”  “No, it’s Chelsea.” “No, it’s neither.” “No, and it’s someone he has yet to meet.”  “No, it’s someone from his past!”   It’s this back and forth.  And if anyone has noticed since I have been on the show, I like to play as much ambiguity in scenes as possible, because then you keep the audience guessing.  And, because we work in a medium where it’s not 22 episodes a year but 250, the show doesn’t have a closure.  It’s in a constant state of falling forward.  The more ambiguous it is, it leaves hints at things, and you can keep an audience rooting for one direction, or questioning another direction, and thinking, “Could it be this?”  So I know where things are headed, obviously.  I know where Adam will be in six months and in twelve months, but I can’t play that, and I can’t tell you. (Laughs)

So you would say down the line, there is going to continue to be riveting story for Adam?

MICHAEL:  Adam is going to go on a journey of self that I am not even sure he is aware he is going on.  It’s not this quest that he is going to look inside of himself.  There is no introspection.  Adam is the kind of guy who has resolved certain things.  The seeds have already been planted over a month ago when Adam said to Sharon, “Maybe, I am just not cut out for love.  Maybe, it’s not meant for some people.”  So maybe Adam emotionally shuts off and builds up walls, because he is truly that army of one.  Adam knows the one constant in his life is just him.  In some ways, he is so broken and so lost.  Adam is enough of an intellectual, and he is cerebral, so he is not an idiot like other characters can be who keep beating their heads against a wall and keeps trying the same thing. The definition of insanity is doing the same over and over again, and expecting a different result.  So for Adam it’s: “I need to stop attempting to do something, because I am not going to get a different result.  It’s going to be the same thing.  So why don’t I just stop? It’s madness, and I will just build a wall.”  But what happens when you have a character like this in drama that builds emotional walls … then it becomes so compelling to watch!

What will Adam do if he learns he is to be a father?  Would he embrace and love his child?

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

MICHAEL:  You have to figure that inevitably Adam will find out, and when/if that happens, does it turn his world upside down?  I think Adam truly has a ‘circle the wagons’ kind of mentality.  If there is trouble on the horizon, in a moment of panic and instinct and tragedy, and someone pulls a gun on his father, Adam thrusts himself in front of his dad.  So you have to imagine if Adam had a child?  He would be like, “Get behind me, kid.  All the rest of the world, getaway!”  That protectiveness, and the power of love, is going to be awesome!

So Y&R fans, what do you think about Adam taking a bullet for Victor? Do you think long term this will change their relationship?  Who is the women for Adam?  Sharon or Chelsea?  Do you think Adam would be a good father to his child?  Let us know your thoughts!

    Sharon and Adam all the way. Best couple since Dru and Neil.Do I think it will change Victor and Adam. No! Victor has a nail brake and he turns on his kids in a drop of a hat. Victor will find a way to try to get the company from Jack. But with Adam around he is no sappy Nicholas or angry Victoria on a rant. Adam is Victor’s match! he is no dummy and he will do what he has to to protect now his baby from Chelsea she is horrific who gave away the first kid and Adam knows it and his women is Sharon. Adam can’t except any other man in Sharons world but him. Adam his Sharon’s knight! But he better hurry fans want Shadam back and fast. More love Shadam scenes to heat up our screens.

    Sharon is Adam’s future. They are the next Nikki and Victor the writing is on the wall. Wish Sharon and Adam can get the baby from that Chelsea and have a fairytale blow out huge wedding this time. They never got the chance to love each other with all Victor did with framing Sharon for Skyes murder she did not do. Isn’t it time we get something . team Shadam all the way! Now can we have Drucilla back as Sharons best friend and Dylan as Sharons long lost brother please :) :) :)

    OMG Sharon and Adam XOXO How can there ever be another. I have been there when Adam was bad and switched the baby and yes it was awful but it was Kismet when these two got together. I read some comments that Chelsea belongs with Adam and I just shake my head. They don’t see the love and passion these two Sharon and Adam has always had. When you meet “The One” when you meet them like Victor did long ago seeing Nikki on that stage. I remember showing my age now but that is what Sharon and Adam have together and always will. That is why I can forgive Adam and his crimes because of the soft loving side he has had for Sharon. I actually fast forward through that fake wedding he had with Chelsea. it was all wrong! Ummm why isn’t Sharon giving Adam a son heir? She should! Sharon and Adam scenes in the hospital actually made me cry! Love Shadam.

    SHARON SHARON SHARON only for Adam! I think it is proven this it the next super power couple for the future of Y&R. I never get enough of these two can’t staying away from each other. They are partners in all areas. Good work writing team. now figure out how to get that baby from Chelsea and give it to Sharon and Adam to raise.

    Maria M replied

    Adam & Sharon are soul mates. I have so much respect for Michael Muhney. He is an incredibly good actor. I’ve been watching Y&R since the first day it was on. I’m 62 now. I find I watch mostly for him and his scenes with Sharon. I was appalled at how the former writers were portraying her. I’m glad that’s over.

    Sharon and Adam. Loved them from the very start. The chemistry with these two is way better than it was with Nick and Sharon. You can tell Adam will love Sharon till the end of time. Sharon is Adams world and she has his heart. Mom Hope would love her . Hope would NEVER approve of Chelsea the con who has not changed. Just ask Dylan.

    And she would approve of sharon who married and slept with a bazillion people? Everyone’s got her flaws and sharon also has hers.

    deb replied

    Exactly; she was upset with Adam for calling Sharon’s name when he woke up from the coma; but that loser forgot she was rolling up under Dylan a few weeks ago screaming his name. What, did she forget she is the one who hooked up with another drunken man at a bar while still married to Adam???

    I hate when people try to compare what Hope did to what Chelsea is doing. Ummm Hope gave Victor a choice and it was Victor’s choice to stay out of Adam’s life. Chelsea is not even allowing Adam to know he has a child on the way. She is going to keep the man’s child in the same town as him while pretending it is another man’s baby. Sure Adam has some Karma coming but I hope Chelsea’s Karma is her getting thrown in a prison in Mayanmar like she did Billy and all those other men she conned.

    Jessie replied

    Sharon! All the way to the bank. Adam loves Sharon they are magic together. Frankly what is this Chelsea person always on??? She is so stupid like Chloe and can’t think for herself and she blames her past and her mother. How cold to give away her baby and live in a big rich house. Please this women did not give away her baby for being nice. Who does that .She was ready to abort this kid only because Adam needed to work. Chelsea must go. Give the baby to Sharon! Nick can sleep with two sisters when HE wants but when Sharon is abused she can’t get comfort from anyone without being calls names? Come on way to go Sharon! run Newman! make Adam proud.! Dru would say” YOU GO GIRL” God I miss her bff Drucilla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HATE CHELSEA CON. SHE MAKES ME SICK AND IF I HAVE TO SEE HER ANYMORE IM DONE

    Mary SF replied

    I don’t know- I was kinda hoping for a Adam and Phyllis hook up. I think they could make a interesting couple — anyway it would make for an odd courtship considering these two characters can’t stand each other. I like the first guy who played Adam when he was with the first Heather. And during the time he was pretending to like Ashley to gaslight her I thought they could work as a couple. But if my only choice is between Sharon or Chelsea- then I agree with you Sharon is the only one for him.

    I used to love Adam and Sharon and then I fell in love with him and Chelsea. Then, in the recent months, Adam and Sharon had me hooked on their chemistry again. But then I see scenes between Adam and Chelsea where I find myself going “Awww!”. So I could say I’m Team Shadam or Team Chadam, but honestly I think I’m just plain Team Adam! lol.

    Adam & Sharon are truly soul mates. They have seen the best & worst in each other, been to hell and back, ride or die, and survived extreme events, and still come out stronger than ever. This couple was tested in every way imaginable and always survives. It’s been almost 4 years for Shadam’s tumultuous journey.

    I believe this Chelsea is just an incubator for Adam’s firstborn. This woman has been pregnant 3 times in one year! Unbelievable! She’s a womb to provide an heir. That is all.

    I think Adam & Sharon will raise Baby Hope, who will be a little sister for Faith.

    “Perpetuated”…..

    the mind wanders… when Adam “reals”…. his screen time… is magnanimous….

    He gives relevance to Victor…..

    sensual… smoldering… ideal… the caveat… the writers have in MM…

    He belongs with Sharon…

    like many a fan…. Adam and Sharon… are the replacement to Victor and Nikki.

    FACT.

    when this happens…. dalliance with Nick. show some love and place to Victoria… she’s spot on…

I fell in love with them as soon as the met up until now. They’ve been through hell and back with each other but still managed to be together inspite with everyone in GC being against them. They’re the darlings of Y&R.

    I couldn’t agree more. Chelsea and Adam brought out the best in each other. They were so tender and sweet together. I definitely would hope Adam and Chelsea find there was back to each other especially if he can finally stop that stupid game with his evil father and hateful siblings. All of them treat Adam like dirt. I was surprised they called 911 when he was shot. Adam is no saint. He’s a rotten as his blood relatives. But, I saw some real humanity in him when he was with Chelsea.

    Sharon is nothing but trouble with a capital T. I also agree. If Sharon has any chance of a life perhaps it is with Dylan.

    Adam was never more boring when with Chelsea!!! I thought OMG this is the end of the show during that time. The writer at that time made poor Sharon sleep with yuck Victor and Adam lost his mind and married the rebound Chelsea cuckoo who threw away her baby after the crime she did hired by Victor as a prostitute. Hope would roll in her grave. Chelsea is so far from the sweet girl Sharon is. Sharon loves Adam with all her heard. Sharon is the women for Adam 2.0. Why is Chelsea pregnant again????? No Adam does not love Chelsea he just does not like to admit fail but he does not love her. Now the kid I hope Adam gets full custody . Adam should never of given Chelsea the $500.0000. Send her on her way with what she came in with. What was she there 5 minutes before she got all pissed off and left. She does not love Adam for Adam

    Teresa replied

    Adam was going insane married to bitter batty Chelsea, She held him back and she did not care about what he needed. He didn’t love Chelsea he pitied her. he felt Chelsea was a problem a selfish ball and chain. Adam would kill for Sharon. He did.

    I like Adam and Chelsea together for the immediate future, but not forever, she’s not his soul mate. I think they could maybe give their marriage another shot for a while when he finds out about the baby.

    I like Sharon and Adam together too, but I don’t think she loves him unconditionally. I don’t think Adam has met his true love/soul mate yet. It’s someone else.

    I like Adam with Chelsea too but I don’t see it long term. Let Sharon have Adam & the Newman craziness and give Chelsea another love interest. I love her budding career and want her to find herself. On another note – am I the only one who can’t stand Victor? The way he treats Adam and Sharon is terrible. I thought the ad-lib by Eric that he sent Adam money for college, completely ignoring that Adam was a self made man was atrocious. Why do the TPTB allow this? That MM has to take to his Twitter page to explain the error and that it was an EB Adlib is just wrong on so many levels. Don’t ignore Y&R’s history & don’t revise it.

    Sharon is the light and Apple of Adams life. he will get that baby from that heartless con Chelsea. she has a baby in the oven sadly AGAIN! Adam get he baby and raise it with sweet Sharon. She is your women! Chelsea was going to abort this kid! With baby Johnnys birthday how can Chelsea not wonder and miss her child who lives in this same small town and share custody! She is the ONLY women who did not fight for shared custody why make her fight now? One child is more important then the last???? SMH PFFFFT! BOOO CHELSEA boring Fake!

    Gillian replied

    Cassie, she isn’t my “women” (I think you meant “woman”)- she is a CHARACTER. The character behaves as she is WRITTEN by the WRITERS. Please get a grip. This is a fictional show. With fictional characters. If we were judging characters based on the past, Sharon would never give Adam the time of day after he lied to her about her child being dead. The characters are limited to how good/bad they are written.

    Diane replied

    Sharon is Adams women and Sharon man first. They still would of been together if it was not for Victor with his games and framed Sharon for murder she did not commit with Skye. Victor has her stashed some place. Victor burned Skys place with the evidence she was alive. What happened ? Victors character always loved Sharon as a daughter. The old writer messed that up.. Nikki was always nasty but Victor is out of control now! Sharon and Adam are the power couple of the show. They will get married again and have the chance they were supposed to have when Adam changed for Sharon but Nick was a jerk because Sharon went to jail for what Victor did to frame Sharon for protecting Adam! Suprised Victor didn’t sleep with Chelsea also. I love Dylan is coming out in two weeks with the St. Christopher medal Dylan has from his dad and Sharon had it on the week of March 13th the match. love Sharon will have a brother to walk her down the isle to Adam :)

    Sharon! No need for a long speech except Chelsea was the most boring thing to happen to Adam! I could go on for hours the love and chemistry and the balance they do to each other Sharon and Adam complete each other. Even when they fight Im excited.

    Adam did need reset. This first time I actually have liked Adam, MAB wrote him horribly but this will be growth for Adam. As for which woman I feel Chelsea has his heir, Sharon to much has happened between the characters. I feel the writers should approach Shadam more like GL did with Roger\Holly…glimpses of happiness but never long term happiness and look how long GL milked that story and how it drove story of 20+ years. Sharon could never fully trust Adam as Holly could never fully trust Roger. It isn’t that neither woman didn’t love their “bad seed” men but no matter much love you have, if there isn’t trust it shrinks the relationship.

    I think if Y&R was smart they would use the history of show and bring back a character such as Mac. That would infuriate Billy which would intensify the Billy\Adam rivalry could cause problems w\Villy’s marriage (now she isn’t related to Billy).

    Since we stuck with boring ass Dylan, so much propping up for this character FOJ. This character is weakest link in story. I’ve gave him a chance but he’s not cutting it, just personally not impress how they are hitting Y&R fans over the head to prove Dylan is a good guy, away from the Jason character. I’m not saying I want him to be Jason like either…GOD NO! SB & SC does have some chemistry going on and that’s the only time I can tolerate him is when he’s in orbit with Sharon.

    I do want Adam to forge a relationship with Victor maybe restraint but Adam needs a close family relationship not with Nick \Victoria (they are thick as thieves) but with Abby understanding Adam a bit more and opens the character to have a close connection to blood.

    Yes I also believe many are so jealous men love Sharon on the show because she loves with all her heart and she is not a evil person like Phyllis, and Chelsea and even that Chloe. Any trouble Sharon ever got in she was framed or she was going through horrific stuff like Cassies death alone and she never got help . Shameful the way Nick lied when Summer is Jacks and the way the Newmans treat Sharon. I had it with that abusiveness towards Sharon! Love Adam is her White Night :)

    I have to say I was never interested in Adam until Chelsea came along. She invigorated him and made him human. She allowed me to see Michael Muhney as a viable romantic lead. Adam was happier, sexier, more fun and genuine with Chelsea. And he looked years younger! I think Chelsea is clearly the woman for him. The helped and healed each other. It was truly a beautiful romance that touched many hearts. Chelsea and Adam’s relationship has all these colors and grooves that make them fascinating to me. Even now that they have been separated and there’s such discord between them, there is that connection and chemistry that is unbeatable. Adam doesn’t have that with anyone else, least of all dopey Sharon. What I would like to see is Chadam reunite down the road but first they need to go on their own journeys. Chelsea has amazing chemistry with Dylan and I would like to see that explored. It would be fun for Adam to see Chelsea, the best thing that ever happened to him, moving on and making a new life with another man. Eventually, Adam is going to know she is pregnant. I hope Dylan steps up and plays baby daddy. So, Adam will watch from the outside as Chelsea and Dylan go through her pregnancy together. Adam can see what he gave up in his quest for Newman and also regret regressing back to Sharon. Adam doesn’t deserve Chelsea right now. I hope that will change in the future, though. Adam and Chelsea are the endgame couple. She’s the only one he can truly have a real life with — a family, a home, true love. But, it shouldn’t come easy or quick. In the meantime, Chelsea should succeed in her new fashion career and look forward to the arrival of her child as she grows closer to Dylan.

    Leanna, DITTO to everything you said. I hated Adam until he and Chelsea first became friends and finally husband and wife. I loved their wedding at the farm and Adam basically telling psycho Sharon to go away. He became a human being when he became involved with Chelsea and I look sooo forward to their scenes together. I can no longer stand Sharon…writers ruined her for me. Adam and Sharon will never be truly happy together. He belong with Chelesa now and forever. They are the only couple on Y&R that I can stand right now.
    I loved to tell Nick and Victoria to STHU and deal with the fact that they have a brother and treat him as a human being. I am tired of their spoiled, entitled, jealous selves.

    Spot on Leanna! Adam and Chelsea have so many storyline opportunities that can be explored. The future is limitless. Adam himself said he felt free and happier with Chelsea. I do agree, they both need to find themselves right now. Adam needs to find his way as part of the Newmans and Chelsea needs to concentrate on her career and become her own woman, making her mark. They are the future of Y&R!

    No Adam does not deserve Chelsea; the con woman who would keep his child from him and jump in the sack with the first drunken stranger she comes across.

    The man who deserves Chelsea is one of those guards at that prison she had Billy locked up in. Chelsea is a selfish cold trick who because of her years of screwing strange men for money has no soul. This is why she was able to gave up her kid with Billy and live in the same town as him only to get pregnant months later. The poor kid will know his mother did not want him but got pregnant months later. Cold twisted trick.

    I think so too. My theory is Adam planned to take the bullet for Victor. Victor was about to nail him for his part in the cover up of Stefanie Wheeler’s death. I think he figured out there was going to be an attempt on Victor’s life and either arranged it so he would be present when it happened so he could play the hero, or else got to the shooter and arranged for the actual shooting.

    If the guy can stick needles in his eyes to make himself blind- or take a child from her mother — or cause the death of an innocent man (Richard Hightower) and then blame a crazy lady- he would let himself get shot if got him what he wanted. In this case Victor gets off his back, all the Newman’s are indebted to him- everyone thinks he is a great guy– when in the end Adam is still Adam- but his time Victor won’t see the knife in his back until it is too late.

    Sharon and Adam all the way! Although, when Adam finds out Chelsea is carrying his kid, who knows what Adam will do at that point! Will he dump Sharon and try and reconcile with Chelsea? I hope not. I hope he shares joint custody with Chelsea and Chelsea realizes that Sharon will be a good step-mother to her and Adam’s child. But that remains to be seen. It’s going to be interesting to see how the writer’s write this storyline.

I loved when Adam became soft, but I am loving him even more so now. As for who he belongs it, it’s either Chelsea or someone not on the canvas. The Adam+Sharon pairing is wrong on so many levels.

    I’d love to see Adam as a daddy, I think his mother’s side would truly come out and into play. Speaking of his mother, I hope that Hope makes some appearances this year. I love it when Michael and Signy play against each other. Their chemistry as mother and son are amazing.

    Muhney is a rare talent who can make a character like Adam, who should be hated by most, loved by most. I am a HUGE Adam fan and would love for him and Sharon to have a reunion Ejami style. I hated Sharon sexing up Victor but I hate the idea of Adam ever ever going back with that assclown Chelsea. She is too stupid for words. She really think the man should have given up his life in GC to follow her con behind to Paris, but she is still in town trying to keep him from knowing she is carrying his baby. WTH kind of idiot is this??? If Paris was so great why did she not take her self there and have the baby without Adam knowing? No, this “genius” is going to stay in town and pass the man’s child off as someone else. She is a cruel stupid manipulative trashy con who I hope when Adam finds out what she is up to, teaches her a lesson on why not to mess with Satan’s understudy.

    MM is great in scenes with all his fellow actors but his best scenes IMO are with Sharon Case and Eric B. I used to like the friendly vibe of Adam and Chelsea but once the romance begin it became too cutesy and silly. Adam is not made for silly; intense and passionate is what MM does best.

    Well said. Chelsea is too simple and plastic for him. I love seeing him interacting with Phillis, Dianne and the other ‘mad’ woman, and of cause Sharon. MM brought the intelligence and depth to Y&R which soaps normally lacking of.Whatever they do, please do not make him another lovey-dovy boring man. Playing house is not his forte. He needs to be dark-grey in the corporate world. I am not sure the terms like ‘Soulmate’ or ‘supper couple’ either.

    IA Sharon is not Nikki, thank goodness. Nikki is a hypocritical snub who forgot where she came from. The pole rider should have more empathy for others knowing what her life was like but she is too busy judging anyone that is not Victor.

    Sharon has more love and compassion in her little finger than Nikki has in that drunken body of hers.

    IMO Adam and Sharon are NOT the new Nikki and Victor because frankly those two so called love story is nothing to imulate. Victor only shows Nikki love when she is kissing up to him; the minute she does something he does not agree with he looks for a younger version of her.

    Totally he belongs with Chelsea I truly believe that with Chelsea it was the first time he really fell in love and for all these months his and Chelseas emotions have played out on screen even though they separated and were angry and cold to each other.
    They are alike in many ways….they both shut down when it comes to true love.
    That is why I believe theis beautiful love story needs to be explored to the fullest. When Chelsea recently visited him at the hospital you could feel the love they have for each other. Adam has been retarded in the love area all of his life, be it father’s love or a woman’s love. This is a true love story. I hope the writers keep this story strong.
    His dream of family is hopefully about to come true. It would be wildly exciting and I am sure extremely well performed by the dynamic duo (on screen they are magic)
    This story would tap into a love he has never experienced, the greatest love of all, the love a parent has for his/her child. I am in no way saying that Adam does not love Chelsea and vice versa it is obvious from their scenes that that is still very strong.
    Chelsea is good for Adam and he was happier with Chelsea. He was never that happy before, ever. These two work and work exceptionally well together.
    I simply love and adore CHADAM and hope they are given a chance to play out their love, just imagine the great performances by MM and MCE, they are magic. JMO
    I do not feel this with any other pairing on this show. It’s usually all surface acting but with MM and MCE it is from within. MCE nails every scene she is in (Adam or not).
    She is in my opinion a very talent actress who deserves more airtime than what she is getting. I hope this happens for her.

    Sharon is definitely the love of Adam’s life, he may have love for Chelsea but it doesn’t compare to the way he feels about Sharon. Shadam is truly one of the most interesting couples, people who on paper probably shouldn’t be together but yet they are continuously drawn to eachother and when the chips are down they are always in the other’s corner. Plus the chemistry between Sharon Case & Michael Muhney is fantastic, it’s so palpable. I truly believe Sharon and Adam are soulmates and hope they reunite soon.

    I also look forward to how this will change Adam’s relationship with Victor, if only short term cause we all know how easily Victor will shun him when he feels the need, and also Victoria. I’d like to see them have somewhat of a sibling relationship, even if at times it’s begrudging. Nick is too busy being used as a prop for Avery but that’s another story all together. Anyways, I’m excited to see how Adam’s journey unfolds in the next couple months.

    Thank you for the interview with Michael Muhney. He is my favorite actor on Y&R. He brings me to tears more than any other actor on the show. He shows so many emotions. I loved the scenes between him and Eric Braden. Both are a tremendous talent on the show and I have waited for years for Victor Sr to admit he loves Victor Jr. Excellent writing. Cannot wait to see them working together.
    Adams true soulmate is Sharon. Adam cannot function without Sharon in is life. He would give up everything for her. She loves him the same way. Their story was cut short because of the former Executive producers and former head writers. To make room for Sharon and Victor which in my opinion has been the worse story ever on Y^R. Victor never should have married his former daughter-in-law and the mother of his grandchildren. She looked at him as a father figure (a father she never had). Victor took advantage of her vulnerable state. Everyone turned their backs on her except Adam. He risk everything when she burnt down the ranch. He got her the help she needed.
    Sharon and Michael have the best chemistry between two make believe characters I have ever witnessed on a t.v. screen. They are two beautiful, sexy, people who are so believable when they they are on together whether working together, sitting around drinking coffee, or making out, or making mad, passionate love. They are hot, hot, hot together. IMO, the hottest couple ever to grace my t.v. screen in the daytime. I am Team Shadam all the way.
    How anyone could say Adam Newman is boring is beyond me. Michael Muhney has never been boring in any scene he has ever had. I like him with Heather, Sky, Sharon and Chelsea. I just like him period. He belongs with Sharon. They need to have a beautiful wedding, share custody with the boy Chelsea is going to have, (I hope) and Adam needs to get Sharon pregnant with a little girl and they need to name her Hope.
    I wanted Sharon pregnant back when they were in New Orleans , Never happened. I wanted her pregnant when they got back from Kansas. Never happened. I wanted her pregnant from the hot desk sex in Victors Office, Never happened.
    Now it is their time. New writers please put Adam and Sharon back together and let her get pregnant by Adam. This needs to happen.
    Without Michael Muhney and Sharon Case on Young and the Restless it would not be the same. Everyday I look forward to seeing them. They both need to be on more. There are so many wonderful, exciting, dramatic story lines that can be written for these two and so many other characters can be in the story lines with them. I just pray that Dylan will turn out to be Sharons brother and not someone else she sleeps with. She just needs to sleep with Adam and no one else. Nick is not Sharons soulmate. Adam is.
    I have been fortunate to enjoy the last 40 years of Y&R and I know all the new fans will enjoy the next 40 years just as much as us loyal devoted fans. Adam, Sharon, Chelsea, Dylan, Nick, Avery, Billy, Victoria,a Abby, Noah, Summer, Kyle should all play a huge part in the future generations of tons of story lines that will make us laugh, cry, get mad, get glad, happy, sad, and cliff hangers that keep us at the edge of our seats for many years to come. This is one loyal Y^R fan that is looking forward to the future of the #1 Soap today. As long as there are actors who bring their talent to the screen and give it their all like Michael, Sharon, Peter, Eric, etc. it will always be #1 soap on t.v. for the next 25 years. Now if the writers will just give us fans what we want, everyone will be a happy camper.

    Sharon and Adam belong together.. The only time I have ever found myself bored with Adam was while he was sitting on that ugly sofa with Chelsea. They have no chemistry and there’s no sustenance to the Chelsea character. They force her into too many situations with characters she has no connection with … A totally useless character IMO. It says a lot when the only way to make a character relevant is to constantly keep her pregnant. Adam doesn’t need a baby at this point because there’s still too much to explore with the Newman family relationships.
    MM and SC have off the charts chemistry. Sharon and Adam have a complicated history, but their feelings for each other are always there. All the angst makes for an interesting couple to root for.

    SHARON is the woman for Adam. I have been an Adam fan since MM took over the role and I have always supported Shadam in good times and bad. MM and SC are absolute magic together. It doesn’t matter if they are laughing, loving or fighting they have me on the edge of my seat with my eyes and ears glued to the TV. Their relationship is not superficial, juvenile or silly, it has layers and depth. When Adam was with Chelsea it was like he went from playing a man to a boy and went from being a dynamic force on the show to yawn worthy. Shadam have had a very intense history but they have also had many happy moments where they laughed and joked together but it was in keeping with their maturity, it didn’t come across as high schoolish like Chadam did to me.

    I will never forget that Adam told Sharon that he could not afford to lose her, that he could be fine giving up anything else, he could give up his job, his money but he was never willing to do that for Chelsea. Adam may love Chelsea but he is in love with Sharon and that is what I see. The way Shadam look at each other, speak to one another and especially touch the other it’s like it goes all the way to their soul and Chadam barely brush the surface.

    TeamShadam for the win!

    Chelsea is the great LOVE of Adam’s life. They’ve redeemed each other, completely. Chelsea is having Adam’s baby, the first of his personal generation. Chelsea may have ‘once’ been a con. Adam’s been an ass more then once. They bring out the best in each other, friends, best friends, lovers, SOUL MATES. They did not jump into bed as other couples have in the past, they grew to love each other.
    Sharon will never match what Chelsea brings to Adam’s life, she has been a constant co-dependent to all of the Newman men. From Nick to Adam then to Victor, the Newman bed hopping has got to stop. It’s nasty! She has to find her own MAN who is not a Newman & grow up. Hopefully her meds will point her in the right direction, excluding a man with the NEWMAN name.
    Adam and Chelsea have a chance for a new beginning. It’s time Victor 2.0 has his WIFE Chelsea & child by his side.

    Adam and Adam alone is responsible for his goodness. He is after all Hope’s son and it was always there and Sharon was the very first person to see that goodness and tell Adam that he was more than the sum of his sins. That is why he fell in love with her because she reminded him of his mother, who believe in him. Sharon’s genteel spirit and kind nature are what have always appealed to Adam. His epiphany to actually follow the path to being better came when he was in Kansas after being blinded. That was his moment of AHA! Far before he met Chelsea who had set her sights on him after reading about him in RS. So his path had nothing to do with Chelsea. Chelsea and Adam were thrown together so Shictor could happen, that is common knowledge. If it hadn’t been for that tragic nonsense, Adam and Sharon would have continued on. Clearly this new team of writers see that it was a mistake and one of their very first things once taking over was to correct that by putting Sharon and Adam back front and center in riveting storyline, having Adam save Sharon. The writers have finally given the Shadam fans the story that should have always been written for Sharon and Adam and it captures the electrifying chemistry that only Michael Muhney and Sharon Case share. No one else can touch it. Adam and Sharon are each other’s best friend, confidant and soulmate. Clearly Adam feels safest with Sharon and she is his rock and who he seeks when he needs a safe place to land. He confides in her about work, his insecurities and fears. His desire to be loved by his father and he even confided in her about the Jack/Stephanie situation. Chelsea otoh hardly knows anything, he doesn’t confide in her, he doesn’t share deep things with her. It was only giggles and light hearted chit chat. Chelsea appeared to only be interested in taking from Adam, she wanted him to lift her up, to make her feel better, to fulfill her needs. She became demanding, and berated him, isolating him and testing his love by giving him ultimatum after ultimatum. She would put him down over and over by telling him, he had no friends, that none of his family loved him. Even after leaving him all she could do was remind him how he failed her and didn’t give her the life he promised. Chelsea wanted Adam to be dependent on her and only her..to be confined to her world and to do things as she saw fit. That’s not love, that’s control and manipulation and it’s something Chelsea is still doing by using this baby as some sort of punishment against Adam for not doing what she wanted. She’s the worst pairing for Adam and while I believe Adam does love her, he’s not in love with her and it’s my firm belief when he finds out why she did this and how little confidence she has in him as a man, he will truly see how wrong he was about her. How childish, selfish and truly spiteful she is. She is no partner for him in any capacity. The writers have purposely shown the contrast between Chelsea and Sharon, one who seeks to only take and take from Adam, and the other who seeks to love him, repay him for saving her and giving him everything he needs without even asking. Sharon has forgiven Adam for so much and he in turn loves her in spite of her flaws. Unlike Nick who loves the young girl she once was, Adam loves the woman Sharon is now. The writers have done a fabulous job of establishing Adam and Sharon long term as a couple, no doubt in my mind that they are where the writers are headed. It will be a long bumpy ride with Chelsea and the baby as their angst. The test will be how Sharon and Adam deal with the baby. I think Sharon will let Adam go so he can be a father to his baby and possibly even encourage him to be with Chelsea, so that history doesn’t repeat itself as it did with his mother and father. Victor chose Nikki, will Adam choose Sharon? Or will he decide unlike his father that he can have both his child and the woman he loves? I believe that Sharon and Adam will be together and he will have his child as well. Sharon and Adam are truly YR’s star crossed lovers.

    You forgot to mention MM stated during his #YR50 promo, Chelsea reminds Adam of his Mom ‘Hope’ and Adam and Sharon are toxic. IMO with Victor and Adam finally being in each other’s good graces, it would be in the best interest of them as father and son to continue bonding, especially with next Newman heir soon arriving. Sharon will have a man, just not a Newman.

    Don’t twist it. Quote: Adam and Sharon are a tragic story to tell….they also find a contentment and happiness in each other..understanding that there’s this overlying toxicity that can be very dangerous.

    On Chelsea: There was a certain kind of fireworks, he needed Chelsea. He wanted to embrace more of his mother inside of him reject more of who his father was.

    He never once said Chelsea reminded him of his mother or was like his mother. If that’s what you’re reaching for then let’s go back to Shadam’s first Thanksgiving, where he told Sharon she reminded him of things regarding his childhood on the farm. That’s also according to Adam when he fell for Sharon.

    I love how Chadam fans reach so hard to make Chelsea either Nikki or Hope..too funny!

    Sharon may have been the woman for Adam in the past but that was before he met Chelsea. Sharon is a constant interruption and she is a flake. Adam needs a strong fiery woman and that’s Chelsea. Chelsea opened his eyes, that life doesn’t have to be so tortured. That he can have a future with true happiness with love and family. He allowed himself to live and feel all of that. Alas Adam is Adam’s own worst enemy so he’s now put the walls up because he blew it. I’m completely invested in Adam and Chelsea’s journey. They both want the same things in life and the road will lead back to each other eventually to reunite with their baby and they will be stronger than ever!

    I love Chadam so much right now! I’ve always liked Shadam but I think they need a break, move on, I won’t be opposed if they reunite down the road but it has to be RIGHT. Now, that’s not the time, after all that mess with Shictor, I can’t see Adam forgiving , wanting Sharon like he did before. That’s sick. IMO. I believe they’ll always be connected and care for one another but that ship has sailed. Adam found some peace with Chelsea, he was able to start over again, showed him what it feels like to have a “safe love”, where you don’t have constantly to fight to keep the girl. I hope they’ll get their chance on being a family bc even Adam and Chelsea never had a real shot. Besides, Chelsea always put Adam first, he was her world. Sharon, there was always a mess after another, she was insecure and never chose Adam, only when it was convenient for her. Example: Nick being with Phyllis still or whoever he was sleeping with that week. Adam and Chelsea, fell in love, there was no scheme, no lies. They were friends first, they both helped each other to be a better person. Sharon and Adam, were good yeah, but so toxic together. JMO

    One thing for sure, Sharon is definitely NOT Adam’s true love…. I thought so before Chelsea came along…i love MM and i love Sharon Case… But them together is what’s wrong with the show… No woman in her right mind will forgive her baby napper… period… It’s an insult to all women…. So i am sorry if i don’t get why they even have fans…

    I totally agree Tia. Sharon is not Adam’s true love. In fact he is not her’s either. Sharon has yet to be with her true love. It’s coming tho. Chelsea and Adam are going to be fantastic parents to this beautiful baby together. Chadam = True Love, New beginnings for them both when they were paired and now a baby on the way.

    No, I don’t think this is a game changer for father and son. They love eachother but there will always be something to get in the way of that. And that’s as it should be in order to keep us guessing and wondering………As for the woman in his life, I think he will always be in love with Sharon but want Chelsea to stick around as his wife for now. Chelsea keeps him somewhat grounded and he loves her but just not in love with her. I love the suspense. If we took the suspense out of the soap, it would not be worth watching.

    Love Adam with Chelsea. Can’t understand why Adam and Sharon would ever want to be together. Sharon’s worship of Adam is ridiculous. They may have had something at one time (not to mention how sick that whole thing was). If the new Adam is not going to beat his head against the wall and keep doing the same things that don’t work for him, he definitely needs to move on from Sharon!

    Chelsea has what it takes to bring out the human side of Adam. She can keep him grounded. They both have made mistakes in their relationship, but they can both learn from them and grow stronger together. I love their verbal confrontations. Chelsea will not back down and Adam needs that challenge in his love life.

    Sharon is the true love of Adam. Whether they’re “just” friends, fighting or together, you see the angst, passion and intensity between them. Sometimes it’s spoken and sometimes it’s in the way they look at each other. Adam has said he’s give up anything for Sharon – money, power, Newman, etc. He couldn’t even move for Chelsea. Team Shadam!

    I think that Michael Muhney is an incredible actor and just his expressions says it all. I enjoy him with Sharon and I’m interested in how his relationship with Victor will continue.

    Great interview, thanks!

    Let the news come out soon that Adam is the father of Chelsea’s baby! And, let Adam and Chelsea rekindle their love. Sharon is a mess…

    Look again. It’s Chelsea who is the mess. She’s lying to two men at the same time. Chelsea is still a con and she’s being cruel and selfish as always. Chelsea won’t change. But Sharon is getting her act together quite nicely.

    Adam is meant to be with Sharon as she is his soulmate. Sharon understands Adam…even when he’s being so difficult. Shadam forever!

    I’m sick of this – Sharon with Nick, Sharon with Billy, Sharon with Jack, Sharon with Victor, Sharon with Adam and whomever else there is that she has slept with. Adams needs to be with his Baby’s mother. There is chemistry between Adam and Chelsea! Chelsea loves Adam. Somebody on the show needs to be happy since they’ve caused tension between Michael and Lauren. Let a little reality set in – there are some happy couples in this world; why not let one couple be Adam & Chelsea.

    I think that Adam and Chelsea belong together… Today when he took her to the hospital and told her he wasn’t going any where you could see the look in her eye of how she is still in love with him… I like Chelsea and her role on the show except for how the writers have her playing right now… She needs to think for herself and tell Chloe to gat lost and tell Dylan the truth before she breaks his heart… She needs to go home to her baby’s daddy and the writers need to let them have a happy life together as a family… I used to hate Adam’s character but I love how the writers have him showing this soft side right now…Let him and Chelsea be happy…

    Now about Sharon… Sharon and Nick have always belonged together like Nikki and Victor, Michael and Lauren, and Jack and Phyllis… I am so sad that Phyllis will be leaving the show after the news of Summer being Jack’s baby… I can’t stand Avery on the show… Could you please put her back with Dylan or write her off the show… I liked Dylan when he came back for Avery… but then the writers have him forgetting about who he came their for and just jumping in with Chelsea… He had a one night stand and is just so sure the baby is his… reality check please… I hope that u let it be known who is posting these posts about the Winters family and please get rid of Valerie and Tyler… Leave Lilly and Cane alone and happy in their marriage… I know that there is a lot of drama in the world today but there is also people that stay married till the end… Come on writers get these story lines going we need some excitement on the show… P.S. If there is a way can you bring Cassie back from the dead… U have brought back so many others… What a great story line that would be for Nick and Sharon…

    Adam and Chelsea are soul mates and should be together. I can’t wait til Adam finds out Connor is his :) Chelsea should have come clean along time ago. Chloe has not been a very good friend to Chelsea and really sent her up the creek without a paddle with her advice. When Adam finds out it’s going to be riveting soap watching TV. Go Adam!
    As for Sharon the Y & R writers have not be kind to her. But I do believe she should be with Nick and Avery with Dylan.
