Noah Galvin’s Rant At Colton Haynes Threatens TV Show ‘The Real O’Neals’

Noah Galvin’s Rant At Colton Haynes Threatens TV Show ‘The Real O’Neals’

“Can a press interview gone bad kill a television show?”

That’s the question The Hollywood Reporter is asking after Noah Galvin, the young star of one of ABC’s low-rated series, The Real O’Neals, took both gloves off, slid on some metaphoric brass knuckles and jabbed like crazy at Colton Haynes, Bryan Singer, Eric Stonestreet and, well, a vast slice of Hollywood, L.A., and gays everywhere.

If you missed it, it was really quite something.

Inside sources are saying ABC was caught completely off-guard by the interview — not surprising, as we can’t imagine it’d be the sort of thing they’d give the OK to ahead of time.

But the damage to the show’s fate may be more severe than a simple slap on the wrist. The outburst may wind up being the beginning of the end for the show, which is based in part on Dan Savage’s childhood.

Sure, Galvin was quick to issue an apology, but here’s a newsflash: Hollywood doesn’t exactly love having its dirty laundry aired out by the people it pays hefty sums of money to and makes famous. Imagine that.

We can easily picture the egos of more than a few executives getting bruised, and the potential of future damage has fairly high stakes with the amounts of money involved in producing a TV show.

A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that one of the show’s executive producers, who has spent four years working to get the program on the air, was “begging the network not to take action.”

What’s more, insiders say Galvin’s behaviour isn’t anything new, and that he’s been warned on more than a few occasions to reign in his “ego and entitlement.”

    Give an immature brat a voice and he uses it to damage himself and others. If it was one of those old time soap operas, he’d find himself “falling down an elevator shaft” or “going through extreme plastic surgery to get a new face” by the next episode. Let this be a lesson to everyone. Stay ? in ? your ? lane ???!!
