Even the ghost of her own dead daughter is admonishing Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) on The Young and the Restless! Today on the CBS sudser, the blonde trainwreck frets to Cassie's (Camryn Grimes) spirit about Phyllis' (Michelle Stafford) condition.
With both Ghost John (Jerry Douglas) and Ghost Cassie floating around giving unsolicited, bad advice, I'm starting to think the next FOJ should play a Genoa City ghost buster. Watch a sneak peek of today's Y&R after the jump! READ MORE
The Young and the Restless opened with Dyldumb (Steve Burton) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) leaving Lamaze class. Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) interrupted them by saying she had an emergency and needed Chelsea’s help. The emergency turned out to be Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) blackmail. As much as I loathe Chelsea and Dyldumb, I do like Chelsea and Chloe’s screwed up dynamic. READ MORE
Michelle Stafford doesn't seem too worried about Sony and CBS Daytime recasting the iconic role of Phyllis Summers. The former The Young and the Restless superstar sat down for an exit interview with Soap Opera Digest's Stephanie Sloane, where she got real about why she decided to quit the soap and what's next for her. Here's a snippet:
Digest: How would you feel if the show recast you?
Stafford: You know what? Let's be honest with this. I absolutely think they will if they haven't already done it. They are just going to be quiet about it. And I say this because the character is so instrumental in the show, and I really, really take it as a compliment that they don't want to lose the character. The character of Phyllis is such a driver of people's stories. She is so instrumental in how they are writing the story now, very instrumental in Jack's life, Avery's life, Summer's life and Nick's life. Phyllis created conflict. This is a soap opera. As a producer, I see how they can't lose the character. I'm pretty sure they will recast. They may, as a courtesy, ask if I wanted to come back; I don't know, they may not. It's okay with me. It doesn't matter because I am done. I'm completely done. And I'm not upset if they recast, I totally would understand. Even when I called Angelica [McDaniel, head of CBS Daytime], I said, 'You will probably recast.' And she said, 'No, no, no. We won't recast.' And I said, 'Well, I have some ideas, if you are interested.' READ MORE
