Longtime Soap Star Storms out After Salary Is Cut

Oct 9, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A “Young and the Restless” star has quit the CBS soap rather than have his salary cut, reports the New York Post.

Eric Braeden, who has played Victor Newman on the show since 1980, told the Post he should have been spared a salary cut, which producers did by invoking a contract clause that allows them to review salaries every 26 weeks. He said he would have preferred that the producers talk to him directly.

He could still return to the series if the dispute gets worked out. Producers CBS and Sony declined to comment.

  1. They Are Going To Lose Alot Of Viewers!!!!!!! You Can’t Do “The Young And The Restless” Without Victor Newman!!!!!!! YOU JUST CAN’T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. VICTOR NEWMAN IS Y & R. HE IS THE MAIN PROTAGONIST around which all the other characters engage.
    Without the Victor vs. Jack livelong feud, most of the intrigue will be GONE.
    It would be lame to try and use Adam in his place.
    They should either pay Victor his regular salary –or treat him with the RESPECT his talent -and character DESERVES. This actor brought international stardom and acting creds to the show.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
