When he says it, we believe it. The Young and the Restless star Eric Braeden says that his character Victor Newman is treating his son Adam Newman fairly. Or at least that’s the way he sees it. Here’s what you need to know.
The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Eric Braeden Says Victor Is Treating Adam Farily
In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, the actor said that he’s so happy to see Victor Newman take the reins again. That’s because it’s been way too long since he was last in power. Apparently, the Newman siblings just don’t have what it takes to run a corporation like Newman Enterprises on their own.
Braeden put it this way, “You know, hope springs eternal! Obviously, every father would love his family to get along. And you find out, painfully, that certain habits die hard. He certainly gave it a try and I mean, the brilliance of the Adam story, from its very beginning, when it was conceived by Bill [Bell, Y&R’s creator and former head writer], which bears fruit now and has for quite some time, is that obviously, Adam feels perennially lesser than, and feels like an outsider. And that is so deeply imbued that try as Victor may, he seemingly does not ever get rid of that feeling. And that is a wellspring for all kinds of drama. It’s fantastic! It’s brilliantly done.”

Braeden also said that it’s simply not true that his character treats his son Adam Newman unfairly compared to his other siblings, Victoria and Nick. The actor explained, “Victor has expressed his loyalty and his support to him many, many times over and has tried to explain to him that it was not his decision for the boy to be raised on the farm by Hope. He wanted him to be raised in Genoa City. I put that in [dialogue] myself because the writers sometimes seem to forget. The facts are and the history was that Hope decided to move back to the farm in Kansas against Victor’s wishes, but he understood [her decision]. So there you are.”
