Sometimes we have to pass on news that we really hope isn't true. And THIS, SOAPnet readers, is one of those times.
After a few weeks of "Will they work it out?" intrigue, 30-year Young and the Restless veteran Eric Braeden has told Entertainment Weekly that all contract negotiations between his people and Sony are over. Check out his full statement:
"We reached an impasse in the negotiations. I have shown flexibility, they have shown none. It is over. I pulled the plug. That's it. No more. If I show good will, I expect it to be reciprocated. If there is a rigid attitude on the other side, what is there to negotiate? That's a sign of utter disrespect. I will not negotiate with people who remain aloof and arrogant about the whole thing. Not after 30 years, I won't do that. I'm saying this with a great amount of sadness because I've had nothing but respect for my fellow cast members, I have deep respect for the crew who has done an extraordinary job year in and year out, and I have enormous respect for Maria Bell."
He added: "It's slowly sinking in. It's sad."
We'll say! What's GC going to do without Victor Newman and his schemes?
What do you guys think?
