The Young And The Restless Star Eric Braeden Slams Eva Longoria After She Says She Was Embarrassed To Be On Y&R

The Young and the Restless star Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) has gone off on his former co-star Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella) after the actress said that she was embarrassed to be on the hit CBS soap during the very early years of her career. Here’s what you need to know.

The Young And The Restless Star Eric Braeden Slams Eva Longoria After She Says She Was Embarrassed To Be On Y&R

In a new interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace, Eva was shown a clip of one of her biggest scenes on The Young and the Restless with Paul Williams (Doug Davidson). After the clip was over, Eva explained that it was difficult for her to make ends meet as a soap opera actress and that’s why she also worked at a Headhunter at a temp agency. Eva said, “When I moved to Hollywood, I had my bachelor’s degree, and so when I tell my mom, ‘I’m going to be an actress,’ she was like, ‘Well.’ She was fine because I had graduated college. But when I got The Young and the Restless, it didn’t pay enough for me to live off being an actor.”

Eva then went on to explain that she didn’t tell any of her clients that a “dumb actress” was working on their accounts, so that’s why she kept her soap opera gig a secret. She continued, “I was like, don’t tell anybody I’m on that show. Because I was, you know, still making more money on my day job.”

Of course, it didn’t take Eric very long to respond to Eva’s comments. He took to his Twitter account to write, “EVA LONGORIA: you just made derogatory remarks about daytime actors! You simply weren’t good enough to survive the pressures of this medium! You were very lucky to get on that ‘housewife”=’ show! You did one show in 8-12 days, with mediocre but  salacious dialogue! Our actresses would run rings around you!! And they did then!! From Robert de Nero to whoever they all are, many of them started in the medium you denigrate! It shows a complete lack of class!!”
