Michael Muhney was abruptly terminated from the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless” amid rumors of on-set tantrum and possible sexual harassment. Reportedly some fans are still hopeful that Michael Muhney will return to as Adam Newman. Still others hope that he will join the cast of “General Hospital.”
Adam Newman is returning to "The Young and the Restless” and according to a report on Saturday, May 17, many fans are hoping that the mysterious hand seen on Friday’s episode belongs to Michael Muhney. Fans also believe that executive producer Jill Farren Phelps should be fired.
In December 2013 Michael Muhney was dismissed from his role as Adam Newman on “The Young and the Restless.” Fans were shocked and demanded answers, but all they received was a story leaked to TMZ. The story alleged that Muhney had groped his 20-year-old co-star Hunter King, who portrays Summer Newman on “The Young and the Restless.”
Muhney’s former co-star Eric Braeden, who portrays Victor Newman on “The Young and the Restless”, gave an interview to TV Guide in which he said he and Muhney had come to “fisticuffs” over the Michael’s on-set attitude. Another co-star gave an interview to Examiner in which it was alleged that the reason Michael Muhney was fired had nothing to do with what may or may not have happened between Michael and Hunter King.
Why would Michael Muhney want to return to “The Young and the Restless” as Adam Newman? Do fans really want to him to return to the CBS soap opera after everything that has happened? Many fans have moved on, watching instead the ABC soap opera “General Hospital.” Rumors have been circulating that Muhney may join the cast, possibly as a recast of Jason Morgan.
Former “Y&R” co-star Michelle Stafford has already announced that she has joined the cast of “General Hospital.” In a recent interview Stafford explained that she felt she had taken the character of Phyllis Newman as far as she could after 15 years. Is it possible that Michael Muhney and Michelle Stafford will be co-stars again, this time on “General Hospital”?
All “Young and the Restless” fans know at this time is that a mystery man, who most say is Adam Newman, had a camera installed in the home of Chelsea Newman, Adam’s widow. A glimpse of a hand wearing a wedding ring was seen, but not a face
