Justin Hartley is stepping into some big shoes on “The Young and the Restless” — and he doesn't mind if some fans don't think he can fill them.

But he's not particularly worried if viewers don't take to his portrayal of Newman. “People are going to have their opinions, which I think is great — I welcome it and I love it,” Hartley, a veteran of “Passions,” “Smallville” and “Revenge,” told TheWrap.

7 May 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Actor nominee Jason Thompson ("General Hospital") has been in this position before at the Daytime Emmys. Last year he was nominated against three men from "The Young and the Restless." This year there are five nominees in the category, but once again Thompson is the only contender not representing "Y&R." Does that make the "Y&R" stars unbeatable? -Break- Daytime Emmy nominations: 'Y&R' leads with 26, 'Gh' snubbed for series In 2013, Thompson's "Y&R" opponents were Peter Bergman, Doug Davidson, and Michael Muhney, with Davidson winning the contest. Bergman and Davidson are back in contention this year, along with their co-stars Christian LeBlanc and Billy Miller. Not only is Thompson outnumbered by stars from a rival show, he's also the only actor in the category who isn't a previous winner.

In case you’re lucky enough to land a date with Zac Efron, the good news is that he’s totally down with sex on the first date. “Sex is a beautiful thing. I don’t object.” Which probably explains why he’s dropping condoms on the red carpet. Always be prepared!

More behind-the-scenes drama on "Young and the Restless" has come to light following the firing of popular star Michael Muhney, who is accused of groping 20-year-old costar Hunter King. Now, Muhney's TV father, Eric Braeden, says Muhney tried to have him fired before his departure.

Rumors swirled that Braeden had his co-star axed, but in a new interview he says the situation was actually the opposite. "We did have our differences, but for anyone to say that I had him fired is a lie," Braeden tells Radar. In a shouting match, Braden "was prompted to get into 'fisticuffs' with him because he wanted me off the show. ... It was a campaign to get me off the show. It was Muhney who wanted to get me off the show and he expressed that to various people."

Muhney was let go from "Y&R" in mid-December, and said in an interview with »

'Young & The Restless' Star Michael Muhney Fired For Allegedly Sexually Harassing Costar Hunter King

5 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Michael Muhney, who stars on daytime soap opera The Young & the Restless as the popular Adam Newman, was fired last month following allegations that he’d sexually harassed actress Hunter King.

'Y&R's Michael Muhney Fired

King, 20, who plays Summer on the soap opera, reported to executives that Muhney had groped her chest on multiple occasions. The alleged sexual advances were not wanted or solicited, according to King, reported TMZ. King's accusations against the actor were apparently not the first, as Muhney had reportedly been the subject of complaints many times in the past.
