'Real O'Neals' Star's Rant may end the Show

So remember the Real O'Neals actor Noah Galvin, running off at the mouth about Colton Haynes, Eric Stonestreet and Bryan Singer about a week ago?

Well, looks like his ass is about to get tossed out in the street.
Sources with knowledge of the events say ABC was blindsided by the interview, which was set up by Galvin's personal publicist, Maria Candida, as part of an Emmy push for the young star. (She declined comment.) Galvin quickly apologized for his "brazen and hurtful comments" on Twitter, but how all of this bad press affects the low-rated bubble series — which, after an "abusive" waiting period (Galvin's word), was renewed by the network May 12 — remains to be seen. As the controversy raged, the specter of a reduced episode order arose at ABC, according to one source. An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," says this source. (Reps for ABC declined comment on the situation.)

And this was not the first such incident involving the actor's behavior. Insiders say Galvin — a New York native who had only a couple of small acting credits before landing the starring role on Real O'Neals, which is based on sex columnist Dan Savage's childhood — has been warned multiple times about matters of "ego and entitlement." One show source says the set likely will be awkward when the cast returns to film season two later this summer: "He caused a grade-A shit show. ABC screamed at him all afternoon."
See, his head got too big and now look.

As I said on my blog today, maybe they should send his character "Kenny" away on a year-long European vacation and then gay cousin "Stevie" can come stay with the family, keeping the show on the air.

Well this is just sad and awkward.
I can imagine ABC being pissed that he would have the gall to speak about Eric Stonestreet and flagship comedy MODERN FAMILY.
I was pissed about his comments about Colton.
But I hate the fact that the cast could be suffering because of his actions. And he is young, so I think he can learn, grow and get mature.
