During the video interview, Michael Fairman talks with Michelle and the two of them reveal some great teasers on the parts played by Crystal Chappell, Nadia Bjorlin,  and James Scott in The Stafford Project season finale! In addition, they are joined by one of the most important cast members of The Stafford Project, Michelle’s daughter, Natalia!  Watch what happens when she joins the conversation!

For those fans who miss Michelle on Y&R, she does take a moment to once again address her decision to leave the number one soap opera, plus we chat about the success of her web series, and look back at the making of The Stafford Project’s inaugural season that featured Joshua Morrow (Nick, Y&R) and motion picture star, Kelly Preston to name a few,  and what Michelle would like to see happen when they film a season two!

Watch now this very special interview with Michelle Stafford and special guest, Natalia below! Then, let us know if you will be checking out The Stafford Project season finale? What you thoughts on Michelle’s comments during our chat?

She seems so much happier since she got off the show. In light of recent events, I understand why. That set seems like a tense place with rampant egos.

Can’t wait to see the finale -especially James Scott :). I have enjoyed the episodes, especially White Secret & I laughed out loud at the one with the date with the singer who sang “Michelle My Belle” to Michelle. Guys do that to me too. It’s so awkward!

Michael, this interview was beyond, beyond fabulous! Loved seeing Michelle again in her latest envirerment. She seems happy in her new role as a producer.Her fans will be delighted when her show returns with all the terrific stars. Loved this interview, Michael, because you and Michelle are so comfortable with each other. I was happy to see Michelles’ daughter who is an early actress all by herself. Looking forward to the next go-around, Kudos to all and happy holidays!!

My question is: Will Phyllis’s character be replaced by another actress so that, that wench Sharon can finally get what’s coming to her for Phyllis’s accident. How much longer are we gonna have to hear about how much she loves her soap daughter before she is written off??

I actually prefer Michelle in her series “The Stafford Project” to playing Phyllis on Y&R. I do miss her in scenes with Peter Bergman, Christian LeBlanc, and the Graz but he left too. I would love to see The Graz and Peter on her web series, also Elizabeth Hendrickson, Nancy Lee Grahn and Vanessa Marcil. I’d love to see Maurice Benard and Michelle too. I love love love The Stafford Project, it’s so funny and I always thought Michelle tried to bring humor to Phyllis. I always liked when she got to do comedy on Y&R. I cannot wait to… Read more »

Hey Shawna,
Ita love Michelle’s series, she is so likeable, but have missed her as spunky Phyllis!
She writes better stuff for herself, natch.
Miss her with Jack and his Red, would love for Peter Bergman to guest on the SProject what a hoot that would be! When she left I felt robbed of my reunion of Red and Jack.
Nice interview here .
Thanks Michael Fairman.

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
