You cannot do a celebration of The Young and the Restless, and not include the woman who plays the character that ignites the colorful canvas of Genoa City, and that would be none other than Daytime Emmy winner, Michelle Stafford who plays Phyllis.

In this CBS.com video retrospective segment that aired at the beginning of  a recent episode of The Young and the Restless, Stafford discusses that beginnings of  crazy bad girl Phyllis to the evolution of her becoming a leading lady on the show, plus that little jaunt a long the way when Michelle played psycho Sheila Carter!

During the retrospective, Michelle reveals what it has been like to play along side of her co-stars, pays a fitting tribute to legendary Y&R creator, Bill Bell, and talks about the loves of Phyllis’ life from Danny Romalotti (Michael Damian(, to Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow), to Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).  In addition, Phyllis’ on-screen feud with the character of Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) is discussed.

From the retrospective clip package, to Michelle’s commentary, this makes this special feature one for the record books! Watch it after the jump, and let us know what has been your favorite Phyllis moment on Y&R, as we get ready to celebrate its 40 years on television next Tuesday March 26th!

I didn’t like Phyllis at all until she was with Jack but then she broke up Schick that was horrific after Cassie died. But then now Phyllis is okay with jack. I never ever liked Phyllis with nick. I do now love Sharon with Adam so all is forgiven now lets find out who the real dad of summer is. Please let it be Jack

I think my favourite pairings for Phyllis have been with Jack and Ronan. She and Nick just never fit together, nor did Nick and Sharon. I miss the feisty Phyllis that we last saw when Maura West graced our screens for a much too short time as Diane Jenkins. I hope they bring some edge back to Phyllis, though. I need some good ass-kicking fun! And I hope she and Jack last for once.

I LOVE this so much; and I LOVE her! The Sheila storyline was amazing and I felt the work from Stafford/Davidson/LeBlanc was lighting in a bottle! I love it when Phyllis goes off the rails, but don’t like her paired with Jack, at all. I loved the chemistry with Ronan and feel that a younger, hotter guy is just what Phyllis needs!

B&B’s Annika Noelle Shares Her Heartache on Pregnancy Loss

In a very well-written and touching essay written by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Annika Noelle (Hope), herself, the actress shares with the readers details of two miscarriages that she had not publicly revealed until this time.

In her story for Glamour entitled, “Losing a Child in the Limelight”, Noelle shares the heartache and pain of losing a child while filming the demands of a soap opera, and especially Hope’s storyline which for months featured so much emotion and so many tears after the baby loss storyline on-air she was the vehicle in which to tell the tale.

However in real life, Noelle was going through something as well.  Annika reveals how she and her fiancé found out she was pregnant, and then 10 weeks later she lost the baby.  When they tried again, she lost the baby at 8 weeks.

In an excerpt, Annika expressed about keeping her pain private while working on the soap: “Fans and news articles speculated whether I was pregnant or just gained weight during quarantine. And once again the storyline called for ceaseless tears when I felt like I had no more to give. I guess looking back at it now, I was scared to jinx anything. I didn’t want people to know and have things not work out. And yet I wish I had because I would have given anything to have the understanding and support of the cast and crew. I felt so alone. The secret was isolating, yet the shame was debilitating. I felt like I had failed at something that should be easy. But as time marched on, I was surprised by a new feeling bubbling underneath the sorrow: an ancestral rage toward the burden of womanhood. And as I slowly began to open up about my loss to a select few, I was shocked by how many people had experienced it as well.”

In the end, Annika shares: “Anyone who follows me on social media can tell you I’m a deeply private person. But if there is one thing I’ve gained from my loss, it is a voice I’m no longer afraid to use.”

Make sure to read Annika’s moving article in full, then let us know in the comment section what you thought of it.
