He continues, "It was explained to me that CBS and Sony want to give Adam a break for three to six months, and then they'll bring him back with a different actor."
He's also not sure whether or not his behind-the-scenes relationship with "Young and the Restless" veteran
Eric Braeden, who plays his character's father, had a role in the firing. The two have shared some unkind words
back and forth on Twitter
during Muhney's stint on the series. "If there were disagreements in the past with Eric, for me, it has to be history," Muhney says.
