Michelle Stafford Chats On Plans For Stafford Project, Her Guest Stars & Auditioning!

The Stafford Project is a bonafide hit! The web series developed and created by two-time Daytime Emmy winner Michelle Stafford with her pals Paige Dorian And Paige Long has been must see viewing every time Michelle announces a new episode is about to be posted!

In an full-length interview with Soap Opera Uncensored with a few quotes also posted from it in a joint piece with Huffington Post Canada, Stafford relates what the plans are for the series:  “When you’re doing a show like this, you don’t necessarily think of the outcome more than doing something truthful that people can relate to. There are so many people who want to jump on. We have a lot of production companies who want to take us to the next level saying, ‘We want to package it and take it to Netflix.’ We’re like, ‘Huh?’ So, my partners and I made an agreement to finish the 10 episodes. This way no one can come in and f–k with it. We wanted a complete arc for this character, so people can see the season and get who this woman is. We didn’t want anyone to come in and change anything because that’s just the worst.”

Recently, Stafford revealed on Twitter that she was auditioning for a role on ABC’s primetime series, Scandal.  She spoke of why the decision to let her followers know which is in line with letting the fans know she is not coming back to Y&R any time soon!  “I know I shouldn’t have tweeted that (considering the jinx rule), but there are so many fans who tweet me daily about coming back to ‘Y&R.’ As much as I totally appreciate it, I’ve moved on. I guess because Phyllis is in a coma, I’d say about 35 percent of fans think I’ll come out of it. I’m not, but watch “The Stafford Project.” I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings but I’m doing other stuff.”

As for the hilarious star-turn appearances by Kelly Preston and former Y&R cast mate Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) that has had fans totally abuzz with the show and how that came about,  Stafford said ,”The only episode that wasn’t planned was the one with Kelly Preston because she really wanted to be in the show, so we wrote that special just to put her in it and throw in the soap opera aspect. With Josh Morrow’s episode, Josh came up with the character, so we did that right away because we thought it was very funny.”

So what do you think of The Stafford Project and where it is heading? Wanting to see more?   Let us know!

Looks like she is having fun so I for one am happy for anyone who is doing something they love. Do I want a recast NO! JFP has moved away from this character and has other stories she is telling and once she finishes putiing the rest of the nails in the character of Sharon she will be thrilled. I hop SC finds something she loves I wish she had the guts like MS to just walk.

Great. Hope you get the job. Sure most of your fans want you back at Y&R, that’s where we first met you and became your biggest fans. You’ve moved on and when the great Phyllis is recasted we will move on as well. We truly wish you well with all things.

Bittersweet Michelle. Y&R fans want you back so bad because of who you are and how pivotal your character is BUT with your talent, daytime loss is everyone else’s gain. SP is so good and it is nice to watch something for only about ten minutes and be totally fulfilled. Your show is like popping one of the Andes chocolate mints in your mouth when you have a craving for chocolate. Yummy!

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Robin Givens Tapped As Lead For OWN’s New Soapy Family Drama, ‘Ambitions’

There is a new soap in town from creator/executive producer Jamey Giddens from an idea by executive producer Will Packer, and they have found their leading lady for the ensemble cast. 

Robin Givens (last seen in the soaps on B&B and CW’s Riverdale) has been tapped to play the role of Stephanie Carlisle in Ambitions set to premiere on OWN in 2019. 

Stephanie is the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet.

The series is billed as a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city.

According to Deadline, rounding out the series regular cast are Essence Atkins (Marlon, Half and Half), Brian White (Ray Donovan, Scandal), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Ozark, Bad Dad Rehab).

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
