Young and the Restless news indicate Eric Braeden who portrays Victor Newman and Jordi Vilasuso who portrays Rey Rosales had a heated exchange on twitter. The two made peace in the end but not before fans chimed in on the discussion.
Young and the Restless News: Eric Braeden Takes Offense
Last month Eric Braeden took to Twitter to address his unhappiness with the direction of the Young and the Restless. Specifically, the loss of several key players from the show. The final straw was when several newer actors commented what the Y&R legacy meant to them.
Eric mentioned fan favorites who have recently been let go from Y&R including Doug Davidson, Greg Rikaart and Mishael Morgan. He also named Jess Walton, Tracey Bregman, Lauralee Bell, Christian LeBlanc, and Christal Khalil in the tweet. Eric indicated it would have been more appropriate to ask these longtime Young and the Restless stars their thoughts rather the newer additions to the show.
@YandR_CBS asked ME and I was honored to give it. My words were never intended to disregard or disrespect the truly valuable cast that has worked in building its legacy throughout the years. My hope is to honor it in the same way these legends have & continue to do. https://t.co/RGTdc1xF7w

Jordi Vilasuso And Eric Have Twitter Debate
Young and the Restless news reports Jordi took to Twitter to respond to Eric’s tweet. While Eric did not mention Jordi by name it seems he assumed Eric was referring to his comments. Jordi stated, “Y&R asked ME and I was honored to give it. My words were never intended to disregard or disrespect the truly valuable cast that has worked in building its legacy throughout the years.”
Eric then addressed Jordi by name, “Jordi, my question was NOT meant to disparage you or any of the new actors on our show! It wasn’t YOUR decision, I know that! WHOEVER MADE THE DECISION was just utterly disrespectful to those who were with us for YEARS!”
Seemingly in a move to have the last word Jordi responded once again posting, “Eric, thank you for your response! I understand and empathize with your POV. Looking forward to working with you this week.”
Young and the Restless – Trouble Ahead?
Rarely does such a public exchange between co-workers happens. Are there growing tensions behind the scenes between theYoung and the Restless newbies and the legacy actors on the show? With just over 30 minutes in every episode, it would seem there is not enough screen time to go around.

Longtime Young and the Restless viewers will recall the last time Eric Braeden had words with a co-star publicly it didn’t end well for the other party. Fans responding to the exchange suggested that Jordi shouldn’t have called Eric out. Several also argued he was rude when he stated he had never watched Y&R. Time will tell what if any, ramifications this interaction will have.
