Stairwell Revisted: Y&R's Phyllis Vs. Sharon In Flashback Redux!

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

On Tuesday’s episode of Y&R, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) brought Sharon (Sharon Case) back to that fateful stairwell where Phyllis took a tumble which put her in an almost year long coma, and where Phyllis was armed with the ammo to confront Sharon on her duplicity!

Sharon had changed the paternity test results making Summer (Hunter King) Jack’s (Peter Bergman) bio-daughter instead of Nick’s (Joshua Morrow)! On yesterday’s episode, finally Sharon’s “electorshocked” memory was jogged.  She  started to recall the events, complete with new flashbacks with Phyllis (now Tognoni, formerly Michelle Stafford) in that same blue dress, with the same dialog, and lying in the same position after her fall down the stairs … thanks to Sharon!

Now, Sharon is begging Phyllis to let her be the one to tell Nick the truth about what she did! Meanwhile, Victor (Eric Braeden), Jack, and Nick are heading to the stairwell to see what is going down with the battling broads!

Watch the stairwell revisited scenes after the jump! What did you think of them? Was it awkward …  or did it work?, Do you want Sharon to get what’s coming to her for her duplicity?  Comment below!

First of all, I think Gina Tognoni has been doing an amazing job as Phyllis. Y&R was smart to wait a year to recast the role, and it’s clear now why Gina was chosen to play the part. What a great actress. As far as the flashback scenes, it’s interesting that some of the dialogue that originally took place in the stairwell was recalled by Sharon as having taken place at Cassie’s gravesite, perhaps to get a good closeup of Gina as Phyllis saying “Summer is Nick’s daughter!” Thankfully, a different stairwell was used for the flashback/confrontation scenes because the… Read more »

I HAVE HAD IT WITH PHYLLIS! Please give me a brake. Nick said he would love Sharon no mater what. I hope Adam comes back and sees Chelsea with Billy and looks and falls in love the way it should be with Sharon. They ruined the magic and steamy chemisty Shadam once had. It never made sense that Adam fell for Chelsea. They did not have the love and love scenes that Sharon and Adam had. Adam would NEVER ever EEEEEVVVVVVER forget his bestfriend and lover Sharon who was THE ONLY person who ever “GOT” him. Chelsea wa so boring… Read more »

I agree Kim, Nick rhymes with dick! His father put Sharon through hell and she wanted the secret to come out and Nick said he would stay with her no matter and he LIED! I pray that Shadam gets a second chance. That would be a middle finger to the whole Newman clan!

Phyllis is such a horrible person who committs the worse crimes and Victor lets not even start what he has done. Why is Sharon always the one to pay? I hope Adam comes back for Sharon not Chelsea

My heart broke for poor Jack when he realized Summer is not his after all. I don’t feel sorry for Sharon, Phyllis or Nick– just Jack who was truly innocent in all of this mess. I liked the reveal despite the fact it took so long to come out therefore a bit anticlimactic for me as a viewer– yet it was well acted and thought everyone did a good job with it. As always the Newman smugness of “being right” and demonizing poor Sharon wore thin with me– but hopefully Nick after he gets over being mad and hurt will… Read more »

The only one who truly cares for Summer is Jack. Nick,Sharon & Phyllis are all more worried about how it affects them. Totally disgusted these two women using a child to hang onto the horn dog Nick. So glad the truth is out and I personally have decided Nick is unhealthy for both of them. I guess however it must be written in EB/Victor’s contract that the man always wins on everything. Just about to the point of not watching it again Mary as you know I think a lot of Sharon Case and I think it is way past… Read more »

I think you are correct about EB, he always wins. Has to be a contract thing. Sharon needs to be rid of all things Newman, not Joe either he would just use her then throw her away. Sharon needs a new man after she gets well. No time soon. Maybe recast Sam, I think that was his name. the writers have just done way too much to her, while w—- Chelsea get a pass. I am so sick of her, Adam never loved her, the writers just made that up to make Chelsea look good..her past is so shady, I… Read more »

It was a good scene.. however nowhere near to GH scenes the past week.. I do not like Sharon I was hoping Phyllis would throw her down the stairs and break her, she deserves worse, but that would do / a full body cast … lol The acting was good but not notable great.. In comparison to the GH cast performance this week (and always) Y&R falls far behind in acting talent… Gina is the best recast.. she does well.. Y&R has been the best its been in a very long time, the past week, only from the outing of… Read more »

Who I feel really sorry for, aside from Jack, is Summer. If Sharon had not messed with the paternity test results and if Nick had done a second one when Summer was born, none of this would have happened. Summer would have been able to be with Kyle because that’s what they both wanted, but they couldn’t be together because they were both duped into believing they were related. Things would have been so different if the truth was out back then, maybe Kyle wouldn’t be MIA with no explanation, and maybe Summer wouldn’t have rushed into marriage with Austin,… Read more »

I agree I really like Gina as Phyllis– the one issue I have is they are not writing anything for the character but anger. I get she would be pissed being in a coma for a year, but I like to see them soften Phyllis up a bit, to see her humor and tender side as well as her tough as nails side. Right now she is coming across a bit too hard—need to give her some other material to work with to see her range of acting, not just angry Phyllis. Hopefully now the whole Sharon thing is out… Read more »

It was very bittersweet for me to see all of this unraveling. Michelle Stafford was one of my very favorite actresses on my favorite show and when I heard the part of Phyllis was being recast my heart sank. I so looked forward to her scenes each and every day. That being said, I think Tognoni is doing a respectable job, although I’m not completely sold on her yet. I’m hoping I warm up to this new take on Phyllis, but her diminutive stature isn’t really helping much. Stafford was such an imposing force, not just in her acting ability,… Read more »

Gina doing an ok job as Phyllis, just don’t like how she plays her, she is more evil than Stafford..don’t like anybody beating up on Sharon!! That includes Nick, he said he would stand by Sharon no matter what!! Writers you better get your act together..That being said Sharon needs to be rid of the Newmans!!

Harry
Guest

Sue, more evil that Stafford”s Phyllis? Do you not recall Phyllis running over Cricket and Paul?
Gina is doing a great job. I think she is a much better, more nuanced actress that Michelle is who always acted the same no matter what the scene. Her stature is not a problem–there’s only small actors in their presence. Susan Lucci is only five feet tall but was a force of nature because of her attitude.
Sharon Case is also an amazingly good actress and my heart broke for her character as well as it did for Jack.

Haven’t seen today’s ep yet.

The “flashback” scenes didn’t work too well. Did like the new scenes. I hope Nick can forgive. I do feel bad for Jack though. As wel as his family. Abby will probably need need therapy to get straight how Summer is related to her now.

I’ve never bought this whole “case of the bi-polars” diagnosis to explain away poor story choices because now it’s just a license for Sharon to get away with every awful thing she does. What could have been an educational story about a very real mental illness has instead been reduced to an all purpose “get out of jail free” card: Burn down the Newman ranch? I gots the bi-polars. Alter DNA results? I didn’t take my bi-polar meds. Knock a recast down the stairs? You guessed it. I know that ultimately Nick will forgive Sharon (her bi-polars flaired up, y’all)… Read more »

Yeah, that was my problem, why would Sharon EVER get in the car with a nut bag who tried to kill Christine and Paul before. Plus, Sharon had the right idea to call Nick before hand and the dastardly red head talked her out of it in 10 seconds!

I guess Alan your selective amnesia is kicking in. Victor, Phyllis, Adam, Chelsea and Nicki have done worst things than Sharon did. Nick is not blameless, he could have had the retesting done years ago. But I get it, you are a MS/Phyllis fan and btw, she did the same thing Sharon did when she lied about Danny being Daniel’s father, but hers was not due to her being ill. Sharon did not “knock” Phyllis down the stairs . They were struggling and she fell. Just like when Phyllis and Dru were struggling and Dru fell off the cliff. Did… Read more »

Yes, many of the characters on this show have done horrible things but it’s the soaps and few if any have had to really pay for their sins. Hell, Nikki seems to have made accidentally killing someone a past-time — her father Nick, Bobby Marsino’s little brother, Diane Jenkins (although she did have an assist from Deacon Sharpe delivering the final blow in that last example). What I take offense to and find completely unbelievable is the writers taking a very real mental illness and using it as an all-purpose excuse to get themselves out of the corner they’ve written… Read more »

(2) Sharon S-L-E-P-T with Victor…MORE GROSS-NESS!!!!! (3) Sharon MARRIED Victor…GROSSEST THING E-V-E-R!!!!! (4) Sharon TAMPERED WITH AND CHANGED those DNA results in order to hang on to that drooling DUNDERHEAD Nick. (5) Sharon really CROSSED THE LINE when she burned down the (REAL AND ORIGINAL!!!!!) Newman Ranch!!!!! BTW, that remodeled Newman Ranch is an EMBARRASSMENT!!!!! Beyond pathetic. Bottom Line Here: Sharon playing T-H-E V-I-C-T-I-M DOES NOT sit well with me…SO THERE!!!!!!!!!

Jay, Sharon’s character was destroyed in order to prop up Phyllis. Suddenly, the once manipulative, evil, insane Phyllis was the good girl while Sharon took over as the manipulative, evil insane girl.

Sharon will be hated by many, for sure..

Didn’t Chelsea lie about Dylan being her baby’s dad instead of Adam? No one hated her for that, did they? Victor, Phyllis. Chelsea, Adam, Nicki, Jill, Michael, Gloria and Kevin have all done worse things than Sharon did and they are loved, so why would Sharon be hated? The only ones who will hate her are the ones who already do, including you and the rest of Phyllis’ fans. Jack will forgive her.

Y&R’s casting department has been doing a VERY good job lately. I was distraught when my beloved Michelle Stafford left daytime’s titan Y&R for a show beneath her talents. However, Gina Tognoni is knocking it out of the park. The year-long hiatus from Phyllis has lessened the typical jarring effect of a recast, but I imagine GT could have taken over the role even sooner and made it hers. Now, I’m sure Ms. Ordway and Mr. Jenkins are delightful wonderful individuals, but can we fix the Abby and Billy recasts stat please? Let’s get Mr. Tom back where he belongs,… Read more »

I agree, Jared. Gina is fabulous. I am one of the few who think Stafford is vastly overrated and she chews up the scenery like a ravenous, rabid dog.
Gina is the better actress of the two and I don’t miss Stafford one bit. And I agree with you about David Tom too–he WAS Billy Abbott.

Yeah Nick the brain thrust who cheated on her years ago with grace when Noah was a baby and he thought it was Sharon. The character of Nick is such a big stupid jock that we forget his brains would not fill a thimble.

I’m so sick of everyone forgiving Phyllis & Victor for all the terrible things they have done, but Sharon who has a mental illness & lost her memory after the shock treatment is not forgiven. Sharon did not push Phyllis down those stairs. It was an accident. I am going to be so disappointed if the writers put Nick & Phyllis back together. I do feel sorry for Jack though.

mollie

i agree that Sharon did not purposely push Phyllis down the stairs. It was an accident, but the circumstance were kinda due to Sharon’s actions, stopping Phyllis from talking to Jack and Nick etc…so, Sharon is in the cross hairs anyway.

Well said Nikki. Adam was the best at telling them about themselves. When Victor told Mariah that Faith’s paternity was investigated years ago because of Sharon’s behavior, implying sleeping with different men, I was like, isn’t your precious daughter in the same predicament? Victoria should not be casting stones at Sharon. I can’t stand that bunch of malicious malignant frauds, the whole clan. I’ll take the Abbots any day over those Newmans.

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

Just thinking… Victor did not have enough time to get another DNA, so maybe he used the one he had from Faith’s DNA. Jack said he was going to get another one just to make sure wouldn’t it be something if Summer turns out to be Jack’s after all and although Phyllis did hear Sharon talking in the graveyard to Cassie, she only imagined that she changed it! I for one would love to see old Vic’s face and all the other little Newman’s look then and Sharon could then kick him (Nick) to the curb.

Nikki,
have you been watching?
I FF most of Y&R and I still saw Victor go to Sweden where he paid big dollars to get the DNA test done by a Doctor/whomever, who gave Victor 100% speed and privacy..
Money buys fast DNA tests.. 🙂

also.. Victor was in Sweden, for a number of days, waiting for the test results..

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

You’r right but he took the hair brush that belonged to Summer and a cocktail glass with Nick’s finger prints on it. The test came back that Nick was Faith’s father which was Summer’s hairbrush but Faith had been using it and had it in her back pack. (Now remember this is a soap-opera) so is it possible that he tested Faith’s hair with Nick’s finger prints? Don’t you think Summer looks more like an Abbott with the blond hair?

Here’s what happened to poor little Summer this last year. She got two fancy cars, two huge trust funds, got a brand new fancy apartment and a felony husband to boot never had to work for a living got to manipulate two daddy’s what one would not do the other would. She also got to run around town whining and complaining and everyone jumping thru hoops to please her. Yep that poor. Little Summer sure had a tough stressful year. Sorry Summer signed evil Sharon!!! 🙂

Thanks Nikki just had to put some humor into this storyline so tired of watching this brat for a year and her nonsense. I have a family member who has bi-polar and it is not even coming close to the sadness this illness is. It is a revolving door just when they start feeling better they go off their meds and we deal with it again it is basically the modern day as I will say term for actual schizophrenic behavior.

Heyyyy, Timmm. I must agree with you. As much as I abhor Victor, Y&R would be lost without him or the Abbots. These two families are the focal point…they create tension, aversion, diversion, suspense, disgust, passion, love, and all the ingredients due to create some of the most tumultuous plots we have seen through Y&R’s existence….later.

Hating GT as Phyllis because she comes across as sub-human. Hard as flint and vicious. I couldn’t take the years of The Phyllis Show with Michelle Stafford in the role, and I’m not about to keep watching to see a redux with Gina Tognoni now in the role. I’ll pass on watching if that’s what’s coming. Phyllis should have just died in that coma as I saw everyone moving on just fine with her gone. As for the flashback scenes, no I don’t think they worked. I am incensed at how stupid the writers think we are that we would… Read more »

Hollywood Reacts to the Death of Former ‘Cheers’ Star Kirstie Alley

Over the last 24 hours, friends, colleagues and former co-star have paid tribute to Kirstie Alley, the former Cheers and Veronica Closet star, who passed away at age 71.

On Tuesday, a rep for Kirstie Alley confirmed to PEOPLE.com that the actress died from complications from Colon Cancer.

Alley rose to fame in 1987 as Rebecca Howe on NBC’s Cheers. For that tole she earned a Golden Globe for Best Actress and an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy series in1991. In 1994, she received her second Emmy win for her portrayal of Sally Goodson in David’s Mother.

Some of her other roles included: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Summer School (1987), Look Who’s Talking (1989), It Takes Two (1995) and Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999).

Alley also starred on in other TV sitcoms such as: Veronica’s ClosetFat ActressKirstie and Scream Queens.  She later appeared on two reality series: A&E’s Kirstie Alley’s Big Life and was a celebrity competitor on season 12 of Dancing with the Stars.

Alley’s children, True and Lillie broke the news of their mother’s death via an Instagram post: “To all our friends, far and wide around the world. We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered. She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead. As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother. We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care. Our mother’s zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did. We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time.”

Kirstie’s controversial relationship with Scientology had been much talked about in the press and through her years in Hollywood.  The late actress shared in the past that through Scientology, it gave her the strength to climb out of her drug addiction and depression. In her 2012 memoir, The Art of Men, she noted that she stumbled upon Scientology at a very dark period in her life; that for 26 days, she drove from Kansas to Newport Beach, California, to visit a Scientology center, stopping periodically along the way to buy drugs.  After, she said Scientology helped her kicked her addition, Kirstie then became a devotee and spent decades publicly defending the church and building friendships within it, but later in life, she found some of those relationships fracture such as with Leah Ramini.

Below are some remembrances from stars from daytime, primetime, and motion pictures that offered up their sentiments on Alley’s sudden passing:

Greg Vaughan (Eric, DAYS): “I am beyond thankful to have had the pleasure to embrace your love, laughter & kindness!!! All my love & prayers”

Finola Hughes (Anna, GH): “#rip #kirstialley one of a kind”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy (DWTS) “My dearest Kirstie, We haven’t spoken lately and I’ll tell you everything when I finally see you, but for now I want to say that I love you very much and I wish you the most peaceful rest. You were one of the most unique people I have ever met and easily one of the brightest moments of my personal and professional life.  Some of our relationship is heavily documented. Most of it is known to select few. All of it was like a wild rollercoaster. From Maude to DJ Lil Buttercup you were always all in for life. As I’m typing this, memories of our time together rush to my head, I remember how absolutely wild you were and I start to tear up. Something you’d absolutely hate. And now I can’t help but smile because I remembered exactly what you wanted me to say at your funeral. Don’t think I can do it here… I thought you’d be around forever.  I wish we spoke often. Thank you for everything. I love you Kirstie Alley”

Ted Danson (ex-Cheers, ex-Mr. Mayor, ex-AW):  “I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. “I watched an old episode of Cheers.  It was the episode where Tom Berenger proposes to Kirstie, who keeps saying no, even though she desperately wants to say yes. Kirstie was truly brilliant in it. Her ability to play a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown was both moving and hysterically funny,  She made me laugh 30 years ago when she shot that scene, and she made me laugh today just as hard. As I got off the plane, I heard that Kirstie had died. I am so sad and so grateful for all the times she made me laugh. I send my love to her children. As they well know, their mother had a heart of gold. I will miss her.”

Kelsey Grammar (ex-Cheers): “I always believed grief for a public figure is a private matter, but I will say I loved her.”

Rhea Perlman (ex-Cheers): “Kirstie was a unique and wonderful person and friend. Her joy of being was boundless. We became friends almost instantly when she joined the cast of Cheers. She loved kids and my kids loved her too. We had sleepovers at her house, with treasure hunts that she created.  She had massive Halloween and Easter parties, and invited the entire crew of the show, and their families. She wanted everyone to feel included. She loved her children deeply. I’ve never met anyone remotely like her. I feel so thankful to have known her. I’m going to miss her very, very much.”

John Travolta: “Kirstie was one of the most special relationships I’ve ever had.  I love you Kirstie. I know we will see each other again.”

Jamie Lee Curtis: “I’ve just heard the sad news that Kirstie Alley has died. She was a great comic foil in Scream Queens and a beautiful mama bear in her very real life. She helped me buy onesies for my family that year for Christmas. We agreed to disagree about some things but had a mutual respect and connection. Sad news.”

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.
