Eric Braeden’s departure from The Young & The Restless has ignited plenty of debate between daytime fans here at PopCrunch. Eric’s exit was confirmed last week when the star revealed that after nearly 30 years on television’s most watched soap, her would be leaving the role of Victor Newman due to a contract dispute with show producers.
On Air On Soaps caught up with some of The Young and the Restless’ stars, including Kristoff St. John, Daniel Goddard, Sharon Case, and Adrienne Franz, at the World Magic Awards in L.A., where they spoke out on co-star Eric Braeden’s contract issues.
Adrienne’s response may surprise you!
“They are cutting contracts all around. I mean everybody has to bite the bullet. It’s not like anyone gets special treatment,” says the ballsy Frantz, who plays Amber Moore on Y&R. “If you don’t want to play fair with everyone, then don’t play. If you want to step out…. everybody is dealing with the same stuff,” Adrienne continued. “So if anybody thinks they are better than anyone else, then they should leave if they want to. It’s a cast. We are all working together. We are all working our hardest to make it go, and if you don’t want to work with everyone than you are not helping. “
