There’s one thing you can say about “The Young and the Restless.” That is, the turmoil on screen barely compares to the behind-the-scenes drama currently in an uproar on the CBS drama. Michael Muhney’s firing as Adam Newman has struck a chord, and fans are fighting it out on Twitter, both sides taking their stand for or against the recasting of Muhney’s popular role. However, fans are not the only people making their opinions know. Beautiful superstar Melody Thomas Scott tells her followers on Twitter, that it’s not the fault of the “Y&R” brass, while popular star Sharon Case makes a montage video of her friend Michael Muhney with romantic music playing in the background.
Doug Davidson, Eric Braeden and other stars on the show have been speaking out, but fans are defiant. Whether Muhney’s firing was justified or not, and despite some friends of Jill’s in the media, they flatly want to see Jill Farren Phelps follow Muhney, and are sticking to their guns on that.
Melody Thomas Scott responded to a fan, noting, “Not my place2reveal but the arrogance of some ppl who have NO knowledge of the situation is astonishing. THE SHOW IS NOT 2 BLAME. ANY actor would’ve been fired under these circumstances. Terrible loss 2 the show & it sickens me that this has happened. Jill is completely innocent in this. So is the show, Sony, CBS, etc. Tragic situation.”
