Since Michael Muhney finally reemerged on social media after being MIA for nearly six months, Y&R fans have been analyzing every post the ex Adam Newman publishes on Twitter. And, one particular post has fans buzzing. On Sunday June 1st Muhney posted a photo of his hands pushing one of his children’s strollers and captioned it, “Zoo Day With The Fam.” Now, this looks like typical picture of an actor spending the weekend with his family, but to a Young and the Restless fan … this is huge.
For those of you who haven’t been following The Young and the Restless, a scandal erupted behind the scenes of the popular CBS drama nearly six months ago and resulted in Michael Muhney being let go. Coincidentally in his last scene filmed, his character Adam Newman was killed in a fiery car crash. Since the accident it has been revealed that Adam Newman is very much alive, and his hands have been featured in numerous scenes. Jill Farren Phelps and TPTB at The Young and the Restless are supposedly searching for a Michael Muhney replacement, and once the actor is cast fans at home will be able to see more than Adam Newman’s hands. Of course there is talk that Cameron Mathison has been selected for Adam’s role as we reported here.
Over the course of the last few weeks, the scenes starring Adam Newman’s hands have become more and more frequent on the soap opera, causing some major buzz that the big reveal will be sooner rather than later. Rumors have emerged that Michael Muhney was seen on the set of Y&R and was given back his position as Adam Newman. Other media sources have reported that the role of Newman has been cast, and AMC alum Cameron Mathison is taking on the part.
Ironically in the midst of all of the buzzing about Adam Newman’s hands and Michael Muhney returning, he took to Twitter and posted a semi-innocent picture of his hands. Coincidence? Most likely not. Let’s pretend for a moment that Muhney’s picture of his hands is exactly what fans believe it was, some sort of subtle message. What exactly could that message be? Y&R fans seem to be divided about what the exact message Muhney was trying to send it. Some fans believe that he is mocking Jill Farren Phelps and all of the ridicule she has received over the infamous hand scenes. Other more hopeful fans believe that the hand picture is a subtle way for Muhney to tell his supporters that those are his hands we keep seeing on Y&R and he has gotten back the role of Adam Newman.
What do you think about the photo Michael Muhney posted on Twitter of his hands? Do you think that the picture meant absolutely nothing? Or do you think Muhney was mocking Jill Farren Pehlps? Is it possible that he has been recast as Adam Newman and is hinting to his fans that those hands we keep seeing on Y&R belong to him? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
