In the wake of MM's portrayal, he is too weak. The word is out there that Adam dies in MM's final scenes. Big mouth MTS let it slip that they won't have to recast the character. MCE tweeted MM is going to blow everybody away. Sounds like he's going out in a pine box to me.
Once Adam is dead, it's a good jumping off point. No reason to watch anymore.
I agree I hope MM didn't do what is allegedly been reported [quote]
WHAT IN THE WORLD did he allegedly do? I've been on vacation for 2 weeks and this is what I log on to? I was so happy to see him again on my TV screen after he was killed on Veronica Mars! Now to hear these comments? I was in shock to read the teaser, in tears listening to Sharon's tribute, now in shock again hearing the words 'sexual harassment' in the same sentence with Michael Muhney. What the hell happened!?!
He may be going out in a pine box but remember, it's a soap. He'll be back. He's too strong a conflict catylist to kill off forever. BTW, it makes sense that Sharon would make a video tribute to Michael. After all, she hates Summer. Life imitating art?
AROUNDHOUND, I really believe that Sharon hates Summer, perhaps her mother. I don't see any reason to hate Summer.
I was wondering if it is just me and missing it, or has Adam been cut from opening credits of the show?
I would have trouble believing he's been cut from the credits as he's on til Jan. 30. I also have trouble believing that a beautiful actor with a beautiful wife and 3 children who has been intimate on screen for years with 2 beautiful women would risk it all for a cop and a feel. I sense there is more to this than has been speculated about on the net. It's all possible of course but it seems too pat.
I agree with U about the speculation and I personally would have gone for someone a bit more mature and sharper looking than the girl playing Summer. I find something lacking in her. JMO
Thank You Y&R writers for saving me valuable time. With the help of my DVR, I was able to watch your 1 hour show in just 12 minutes!
No Billy Miller, no Eileen Davidson, no Emme Ryland, R.I.P. Jeanne Cooper, horrible writing, horrible casting and now THIS.... I'm done, after 20+ years, I say goodbye to The Young and The Restless with a heavy heart. I am sooooooo done. I have a very hard time believing MM harassed Hunter King....
Please keep in mind that we know Adam the character and not MM the man. Again, not saying that he did any groping. And again "something lacking in her" so she can't be a victim!Please check your reasoning: Not attractive enough to be sexually harassed? Appalling and sexist logic.
Hunter is a very pretty young woman. That doesn't give MM the right to touch her because he think he has that right.
Look at his past behavior on Twitter, he can't stop patting himself on the back or blowing his own horn. He thoroughly enjoyed when other actors got canned. He was in his glory. This was MM, NOT Adam.
Well, now it has came back and bit him and he isn't screaming his innocence.
As close as he and SC appear to be, on and off Y&R, if he wants to play touchy feeley outside of his marriage let him play with a woman that wants his attention.
Have to wonder how he will explain this termination to his wife.
MM.... you are NOT all it!
XLNT post by cellardoor44 and I agree. Not out of here yet, but getting close.
I have been DYLDOED to almost being gone. Billy Miller story and Lauren/Michael have both gone on, waaaaaay tooooooo loooooong. Tyler/Abby thing just awful. We need a new EP and writers and better newbies. Winters family are all just terrible and getting worse daily.
I am seriously fed up with this show. I might just make it my new year resolution not to watch Y & R after Michae's and Billy's departure. I always see people complaining here and have been patient but now I am full blown upset.
Stop spreading rumors.
I read in an exclusive with Huffinton Post and MM said his character will be recast. Adam will be out for about 6 months. He said he didn't know he was going to be fired when he shoot the scenes saying goodbye to Jack, Chelsea and his son. So I am assuming he maybe going to prison for the death of Delia.
This is all so upsetting with Michael Muhney. It seems so crazy after all these years and working with beautiful actress's that now he gets in trouble with Hunter,it just doesn't make any sense!! I love MM and do not want him to go.
Maybe he wanted something he knew he couldn't have. Something younger. Chelsea is a beautiful woman but that was acting. He harassed HK off screen. He must think that he is Mr. Y&R and that all the women were his.
MM you are not the big rooster in the barn yard, the hens are not all yours. Keep your scratchers to yourself.
Question. Why didn't she press charges? Isn't sexual harassment illegal? Something is not right about this imo.
Because she evidently followed the chain of command. Went to the boss and told them what happened.
I don't blame her a bit. Blame him. He ADMITTED to being responsible for his own actions getting fired.
It's a good thing for MM that she didn't file sexual harassment charges on him.
Where is your horn now MM? Not tooting it anymore? Not on Twitter saying you are Mr Y&R?
You were replaced.
Keep your hands to yourself.
...no one has confirmed he was terminated for sexual harassment...
It's a rumor until it's confirmed. There are very FEW people who could actually do that, and I doubt we'll ever know the reason.
You can't be serious. Spend some time reading up on sexual predation - your ignorant comment about valuing women's harassment-worthiness via personal perception of attractiveness is ridiculous - predators focus their attention on potential victims who have some kind of vulnerability and convenience. It's not about how hot they are. It's about power and assessing whether or not you can get away with it.
There are some very troubling aspects to the allegations against Muhney:
He's known to be arrogant and bullying on line - he's lovely to his fans but he's on record for ripping up people who don't like the fictional character he plays on message boards and Twitter. He can't handle criticism.
Muhney's first response to his canning was to apparently collude with another arrogant bully to accuse another actor of sexual misconduct. Uproar ensues; Branco decides to play Who, me? You silly readers misunderstood! - Muhney does not disavow his involvement in the plan to distract attention from his own misdeeds. Instead, he gives an interview - not to a mainstream soap writer or blogger, but to someone cut from the herd for his own grandiose misbehavior - someone forced to largely self publish his vulgarity infested diatribes and misspelled, typo-ridden rumor mongering. In the interview, Muhney takes full responsibility for whatever the hell he did.
Meanwhile, someone - presumably fed up after years of BS behavior from Muhney - puts out that tea party rumor. Several actors and soap insiders ALL insist that there's more to the story, anyone would have fired the guy, it's worse than you think, yada yada. Even Branco says that this time, it's not JFP's fault, and neglects for once to refer to her as Jill Fucking Phelps.
Crickets. No one puts out any kind of denial of these viral sexual harassment rumors whatsoever. A couple of actresses release tepid, noncommittal "support".
JMO, but there's a hell of a lot more to support the idea that a 38 year old man escalated verbal sexual harassment via putting his hands on a 19/20 year old girl TWICE, and even was bold enough to do it in front of another young actor because that's exactly the standard MO of a guy with a serious problem and then had the gall to be SURPRISED by his firing (Mensa must be proud!) - and then makes one last creepy tweet wishing his own daughter a happy birthday as if she'll be 6 forever, and no grown man will ever look at her inappropriately, say something inappropriate, or god forbid, grab her.
Everything happens in a vacuum when you're a jack ass, let alone a predator.
