Actor on Popular Soap Opera Fired for Allegedly Groping Actress — and What the Show’s Fans Plan to Do About It

Jan 6, 2014  •  Post A Comment

One of the stars of a long-running soap opera was fired for allegedly groping one of his co-stars. TMZ.com reports that “The Young and the Restless” star Michael Muhney was canned following an alleged incident involving 20-year-old actress Hunter King, who plays Summer on the show.

Muhney, who played Adam Newman on the CBS soap opera, allegedly grabbed King’s breasts on two occasions and also reportedly bullied and harassed her, the story says. Muhney, 38, has reportedly created problems on the set before, the story says.

The show has been on the air since 1973. Muhney started on the show in 2009.

His last show will air Jan. 30. Calls and emails to his representative weren’t returned, TMZ notes.

Meanwhile, some fans aren’t happy about his firing, and have collected $785 to hire a plane to fly a banner over CBS Studios that will read, “No Adam Newbie, Just Michael Muhney,” a separate TMZ story says.

  1. This wonderful father/husband has bed scenes with the beautiful Sharon Case & Melesa Clair Egans almost weekly and he’s going to make a pass like that at Hunter King. She’s a nobody in the acting business and hardly someone he would bother with. She needs to grow-up and he should lay charges against Y & R, Sony and CBS.

  2. Hmmm… sounds like “Frances Gruno” may actually be Michael Muhney. If so, Frances, what was it worth it?

  3. Who is Michael Muhney. Should we know him?
