'Y&R' Corey Sligh Needs to Learn How to Walk Again After Brutal Thanksgiving Attack

Off-Key 12:21PM EDT

Soap opera star Corey Sligh is slowly recovering from a brutal attack that occurred Thanksgiving night. He and his girlfriend, Alisa Berhorst, have made it a tradition to bring Thanksgiving dinner to their friends who are stuck working, and they were doing that when the incident occurred. The "Young and the Restless" star had just pulled into a Rite Aid parking lot and saw two guys in a car speeding, doing donuts while onlookers screamed. Sligh said something to the men and ended up being purposely hit by their car and then brutally beaten. Nearly two months later the actor says he is not harboring any hatred for the men. Sligh spoke exclusively with The Wrap and explained what he remembers after telling the driver to slow down. "He looked me dead in the eye and kicked open his door as hard as he could into my chest. Then I said, 'Look, I don't have any problems, man.' And I walked away, off to the left of his car. That's when I heard tires squealing behind me. I turned around and the car was 3 feet away and coming at full speed. The next thing I know I'm up on the hood of the car, flipping off of the side. I thought it was over. They both attacked me. One guy hit me repeatedly in the face. I looked up and saw the other guy shoving Alisa and [our female friend]. I tried going over there while the first guy was hitting me. I had to tackle one of the guys to get him off and that's when my arm snapped," says Sligh.READ MORE

'The Young & The Restless' Makes the Top Five on Bing's List of Most Searched TV Shows of 2014 Thanks to Michael Muhney Scandal

Off-Key 19:11PM EDT

Soaps are supposed to be a dying breed, aren't they? In the last few years, we have seen long-running shows like "All My Children," "Guiding Light" and "One Life to Live" stop production because the audience supposedly just hasn't been there to justify the high cost of producing an hour of television five days a week. One of the few shows left on daytime television is "The Young & the Restless" and according to Bing, it actually is their fifth most-searched television show of 2014. Why? The Michael Muhney Scandal of course!READ MORE

Off-Key 15:21PM EDT

This past Thanksgiving is likely one Corey Sligh will never forget. The actor, who has popped up on "The Young and the Restless" in various roles, stopped at a Rite Aid drug store in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Alisa Berhorst, and one comment lead to a violent altercation, according to "The Hollywood Reporter." The couple was originally making a quick stop before going to help feed those who were less privileged when a car in the parking lot was hopping curbs and doing donuts. Sligh noticed that the two men inside the vehicle were narrowly missing hitting people, and he suggested that they slow down. Instead of doing that, they purposely hit Sligh with the car and then got out and beat him! The men eventually sped off, but later crashed the car and were arrested by police. Sligh is still hospitalized at Cedars Sinai, where he will stay for at least a few more days. He reached out to fans via his Instagram, saying: "Hey kids, went to feed some people last night who don't have blessed thanksgivings and along the way got struck by a drunk driver! Have a surgery to go and another couple days in the hospital but should be fine soon! Thankful to still be on this great planet! Love y'all!"READ MORE

It looks like Bravo and Andy Cohen got their wish. Season five of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" premiered last week and the numbers look really good. 2 million households tuned in to catch up with the ladies and that is a 25% ratings increase over last season. While series regulars Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster, Kyle Richards and Kim Richards all returned it was likely the newcomers that helped to give those numbers a boost.READ MORE

Lisa Rinna Claims That 'RHOBH' Is Similar to 'Melrose Place,' Just Without the Script

Off-Key 13:17PM EDT

When "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" returns to Bravo this evening for its fifth season, there will be two new faces joining the cast that will be quite familiar to many viewers. Both Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson have played hugely popular soap characters with a great daytime television following. Obviously, Bravo is hoping this will translate into fantastic ratings right out of the gate, and it probably has every reason to believe that that can happen. Rinna left "Days of Our Lives" back in the 1990s to hop over to a plumb role on the original "Melrose Place" and, according to an interview with E!, being on "RHOBH" feels similar to that gig. "This is very close to doing "Melrose Place" without a script in your hand. Like everything in life, it's all about timing. It's funny, when I went on to "Melrose Place" it was Year 5. This is Year 5 of "Housewives" ... To be honest with you, after talking about it with my husband, it's been a really great gig for me. It felt right, to be honest with you ... and I like an adventure, I was looking for an adventure."READ MORE

'The Young & the Restless' Hopes That Charles Pratt Jr. Can Balance Out the Devastation Caused by Showrunner Jill Farren Phelps

Off-Key 12:08PM EDT

It has been rumored for months now that Charles "Chuck" Pratt Jr. had taken over the head writing duties on "The Young & the Restless," but there was no official confirmation until yesterday, when the show tweeted the news. Pratt is also now taking on the role of executive co-producer, which means he will be working closely with showrunner Jill Farren Phelps. The two have teamed up in the past on other daytime shows, such as "General Hospital" and "Santa Barbara," and while Phelps is technically still in charge, fans are hoping Pratt will balance out some of her harsh decisions. In the last year, "Y&R" has been hit with a boatload of controversy, making what was brewing behind the scenes a whole lot worse than anything they could have written for the fictional town of Genoa City. Phelps came to the show with the reputation of being a "soap killer" and it is more than a little interesting how, more often than not, after she leaves a show it ends up being canceled within a year or two. Phelps has an edgy kind of storytelling that often ignores the history of the characters on whatever show she is connected to, and that never sits well with longtime fans.READ MORE

Justin Hartley might be a strong actor with several series — "Mistresses," "Revenge," "Smallville" — under his belt but that fact did not make taking on the popular role of Adam Newman on CBS's "The Young and the Restless" any easier. Michael Muhney exited the role last December under scandalous allegations, a situation that to this day does not add up. His departure left fans outraged, with many ultimately deciding that "Y&R" was no longer worth their time. When Hartley accepted the task of bringing the character back to Genoa City, he knew he was going to have his work cut out for him. He has decided to ask the fans for feedback on his portrayal.READ MORE

Off-Key 13:53PM EDT

Michael Muhney has moved on from daytime drama and seems excited for his legion of fans to see the new projects he is working on. The actor spent four years slaving away on CBS's soundstage, breathing life into Adam Newman on "The Young and the Restless" before being fired under scandalous circumstances in December. While the actor admitted in August that he had been negotiating a return to the soap, which ultimately fell through, his fans sat on the fence about even the possibility of going back to the soap they felt had treated him badly. Muhney is now working on four different film roles, proving he was more than capable of landing other projects when he finally decided to move on.READ MORE
