The Real O'Nealsexecutive producer Casey Johnson is putting rumors to rest that the show was in danger of getting a lower episode count, after star Noah Galvin gave a controversial interview to Vulture that criticized other famous members of the LGBTQ community.

Johnson said at the Television Critics Association fall previews on Thursday that the stories about The Real O'Neals losing episodes after the controversy were totally false, and that the behind the scenes drama was a lot tamer than previously reported.

"That part of the story is not true, there was no threat to cut the episode order," Johnson said. "The article came out, and Noah regretted what he said pretty quickly, and we all got back to work. We were busy on Season 2, which we were all excited about. It's all good."

Galvin's interview criticized Arrow star Colton Haynes for the "p--- bulls---" way that he came out of the closet and Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet for "gay minstrelsy," which stirred up a lot of controversy around the young actor. He publicly apologized and clarified his statements shortly after the interview was published.

The Real O'Neals premieres Oct. 11 at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
