TV Guide has another interview with Steve where they basically ask him why he went to Y&R so soon. Excerpts:
TV Guide Magazine: You can't be broke yet. Why jump back into the suds so soon? Burton: I've had an incredible time with my family, taking my daughter to gymnastics, coaching my son's football team, shopping at Target — stuff I never got to do when I was at GH— but I never intended to retire. I'm a worker and CBS stepped up and made a deal. It all happened so fast, just like the telenovela I'm putting together with [Y&R exec producer] Jill Farren Phelps and James Franco for Sony. We're inches away on that project. It's looking very promising. The truth is, if I'd gotten an offer for a primetime show or a movie, I probably wouldn't be on Y&R right now. I just want to work.
TV Guide Magazine: If GH had tried harder to accommodate your personal life would you still be there? Burton: I don't want to point fingers. I know there are a lot of disappointed fans. They don't really understand what goes on behind the doors. They don't understand why I wouldn't go back to play Jason if I'm ready to work again. But what happens at GH should stay at GH.
There ya have it, CBS Stepped up and made a deal... and GH didn't give him the time off or moolah he wanted. Oh and Jill and Franco and he are doing a deal together.
WE DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND anything. GIGGLE. Ok, thanks.
