After her final appearance on The Young and the Restless on Friday as Phyllis Summers Newman, fans have a new place to check out fan favorite and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Michelle Stafford!  Michelle finally unveiled her highly anticipated new web series today, The Stafford Project on the series You Tube Channel!

In The Stafford Project, Michelle plays a version of herself in this comedic satire with a heart.   Stafford is an actress who plays the role of Francis on a soap opera, and who is raising a three-year old daughter who is trying to get her groove on as a single chick and mother!  And that is just a glimpse of the series themes.

The Stafford Project was created by Michelle along with writers, Paige Long and Paige Dorian.  Watch the premiere episode titled “Technicalities” after the jump and let us know what you thought of it!

Then come back later on Monday for On-Air On-Soaps in depth interview with Michelle on all things ‘Stafford Project’, Y&R and more!

LOVE THE STAFFORD PROJECT! It’s so current and SO, so funny! Thank God she’s back on my screen, in an exciting and new way! This is going to be a big hit for her; genius writing, killer production values, camera work, etc. Wonderful to see her in the “real world” and she’s looks better than ever on film! Everyone should watch this hilarious new show! Congratulations to everyone involved; now bring on the second episode!! 🙂

It was okay but I thought “Cynthia Watros gets Lost” was funnier, & did much more with the same premise.

Oh Michelle this is a scream the line where your kids 20 but just born last month concerning the ageing of kids on a a soap was priceless! Good Luck!

Didn’t Kathy Griffith do this already – about a hundred years ago?

I will say Michelle looks better on this than she ever did on Y&R. But I also don’t see any difference between “her” and Phyllis. And that line about her “never having trouble with men, never men”, was…..what?

One time thing for me, my curiousity has been satisfied.

Really cleaver writing…loved the format too. Couldn’t she do this part-time and Phyllis part-time? Really miss Y&R now that she’s gone. My last watching of the show was Friday (her last).

This is a wonderful premise with funny writing…the guy who INSISTS he could make her pregnant? LOL. Don’t we all know one?

I like Michelle’s work on Y and R, but this really reveals what a quirky, funny personality she has AND a talent for comedy!

I could hang out with this chick 🙂 All the best to Michelle.

Love Michelle, but the co-stars were hideous, she needs another hot chick and they need to hit the dating scene. That would be the best way to get the ball rolling.

She’s too old for a dating scene show unless this will be re-do of the Golden Girls.

If so I vote she play Sophia.

Wow Boes, jealous much? Michelle is a talented actress, who doesn’t have to beg fans to watch her show. If you watch the Golden Girls you must like em old. B/C Michelle obviously isn’t.
She will succeed & have fun. Unlike you!

Love Michelle & her debut on The Stafford Project. Her daughter is absolutely adorable. I have subscribed to her uploads on YouTube. At least she’s making it free for all her fans. I wish Michelle all the best on her fun adventure with her web series.

A former diva is also doing her own web series as well. While asking fans for donations to make it happen. I will NOT be watching this other actress. She’s obviously desperate for recognition at the expense of fans. Washed UP, old and forgotten she ever appeared on daytime.

HUGE mistake Michelle!! Keep it up and thanks for leaving Y & R-got tired of you repeating all your lines as if stalling because you couldn’t remember what was next 🙁 can’t wait to see who takes your spot on the greatest soap EVER. Jessica Collins is so much better than you ever were. Now if they can just get rid of Sharon ………

OMG-I thought I was the only one who noticed Phyllis repeating her lines OVER & OVER. She would say something like, “really Daniel, really Daniel, I mean really, Daniel” This got on my very last nerve. I will kind of miss her on Y&R though in spite of that irritating habit & have no interest in anyone’s web series. I have enough to keep up with watching my 4 soaps that are still on plain old fashioned tv! And I agree about Sharon-they have really written her into a corner & I don’t see a way out! But I guess… Read more »

I am still mad about you leaving Y&R because you are my favorite. I will continue to watch Y&R since I have been watching it for 40 years. I am 72. But OK I am hooked on your new gig, Red. So keep it coming girlfriend. Already in love with your co-star. She is darling.
Til me meet again.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
