Eric Braeden is NOT Leaving The Young and the Restless

by at . Comments

Phew. That was awfully close.

After weeks of contentious negotiations and a public spat, Sony has confirmed that it's signed Eric Braeden to a new deal on The Young and the Restless.

Braeden himself was prepared to bid farewell to his beloved soap opera after it demanded he take what he described as a ”substantial” pay cut to his seven-figure salary. While terms of a new contract are unknown, sources say the actor has agreed to a three-year deal.

“We’re very happy that Eric will be remaining with The Young and the Restless,’” read a CBS statement. “Victor Newman has been an important part of the Genoa City canvas for nearly 30 years, and we know our audience will be tuning in to see what his plans are next.”

Adam should finally pay for his crimes. If you put him with a new woman, it should be Phyllis, she is just as manipulative as Adam. She only cares for Phyllis like Adam only cares for Adam. A match made in He..?

I'm so glad to hear Eric Braeden is not leaving, what would the show be like without him. We need someone with brains (and brawn) on the show, all the cute eye candy is great for the younger gals, but personally I like more substantial men. I have met Mr. Braeden in person in Toronto at a tennis tournament several years ago and he is a very charming handsome man.

Thank goodness he is staying as the show would close soon after, he
is the center of the soap, a great actor, love to hate him. Every thing just revolves around him. For ONCE the VIP's heard the PEOPLE, THE FANS, the ones that keep the SHOW GOING.
THANK YOU FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING> THANK YOU VICTOR (ERIC) Job well done. Granny from Vermont
