The Stafford Project Episode 3: Y&R's Joshua Morrow Guest Stars In A PHICK Reunion … With A Twist!

How many times today have those of you who have been anticipating the release of the third installment of Michelle Stafford’s new web series, The Stafford Project are watching it over and over again? We are!  It’s just that funny …  and clever!

So here is the lowdown: while “Michelle” is getting her hair-colored at a hair salon, she has a surprise visitor!  It turn out to be Her soap opera acting partner who has tracked her down who comes to tell her that she is not “bringing it” in their scenes.  That visitor happens to be the one and only Joshua Morrow (Nick, Y&R), who once again proves that doing satire or spoof is right up his alley.  Morrow  plays an egotistical, over-bearing, full-of-himself actor, who literally takes over the salon to the hilt!

But what is so fun for long time soap fans of The Young and the Restless and the couple “Phick” is that  once again, whether it is dramatic or comedic material, there is no denying that Michelle Stafford and Joshua Morrow work so well off of each other and this twist on their on-screen former real-life soap life was in a one word … brilliant!

If you have not seen it we will not give it way the ending, but needless to say, writers Michelle Stafford, Paige Long, and Paige Dorian, wrapped this episode up very tightly with a great sight gag at the end.  If the show keeps this up, it’s going to have a bright, bright future!

Now watch our favorite Stafford Project episode entitled, “That Guy” after the jump!  And tell us what you thought of Joshua and Michelle in this episode?  Did you love seeing them together on-screen again?  Comment away!

I want to love this…but honestly, I just don’t. Michelle was amazing on Y&R, and I think she would be great on a sitcom…but this isn’t funny or well acted. An actual reality series would be a better idea in my opinion. But I still LOVE Michelle!!!

Can’t believe she left network TV for this nonsense. Beyond stupid. If Michelle Stafford wasn’t so popular and didn’t have so many followers, nobody would be watching. She could do anything she wanted on YouTube and her fans would praise her. Sad she doesn’t realize that.

I LOVE this web series, and am excited for more episodes!! That being said, I hope that future installments allow more of her “character” to be exposed, rather than just reacting to the nut jobs around her (even though her reactions are hilarious!) Congratulations to everyone involved!

Yes, I was thinking the same thing. I enjoy the way this is being played out, but do hope for more dialogue from Michelle rather than the majority is her reacting to the situations. I see other comments in the same vein.

Josh Morrow is hysterical…does he nail the campy vibe of this, or what?
I think part of his “schtick” is to make Michelle laugh out of character. The hair stylist in the background can not keep a straight face 🙂 Loved it.

Episode 3 is The Bomb…laughed so hard, we had to keep running it back because we were missing lines (and facial expressions)…Joshua & Michelle are tops & are a hard act to follow…All 3 eps are a “must see,” at least three times over…Can’t wait for “4, 5, 6… … …1000!”

Oh, I absolutely get it. I get that she took a major step backwards. Sorry YOU didn’t get MY post. Wasn’t dissing MS, just saying she’s too talented for 7 minutes of YouTube nonsense.

I don’t get it! Isn’t this what she is suppose to be getting away from? The Young and the Restless? Well anyway many actors do more then one project. She couldn’t do Y & R and this? I am surprised that everyone around her is doing all the talking, even the baby, and Michelle just makes these blank stares with little to no dialogue. I can’t believe she’s a woman with not much to say! I keep watching hoping its going to get better! Hope so, I think she is a great actress beyond Phyllis, but this does not showcase… Read more »

Awesome seeing them back together again! Michelle needs to come back to Y & R . The show needs her & all her fans need her. Not only that but she needs to kick Sharons butt down the stairs!!!!! Love & miss you Nm ichelle on Y & R. But its nice to still watch you on your web series.

Bravo for trying something new and different; however, you were at your best at Y & R! Please go back and continue the wonderful character of Phyllis that you spent years creating. This doesn’t show your true talent and acting skills and abilities; it doesn’t give you the appearance of being the professional that you are.

I just don’t see it!!! I don’t think this will ever win her any awards 🙁 She is such a great actress and her talents are being waste on this!

Sorry – This does not portray the best of Michele—what is she thinking ….everyone else is doing the acting and talking and she keeps doing and saying the same in each episode—–miss her on Y&R Where she was fantastic…. Her mgrs need to get her back in the public eye TV or movies…..

OK…I understand the need to branch out and do other projects; but, can’t that be worked into your Y&R contract? Others have stepped out and done other projects, but never “left” the show completely. I am so certain that the Phyllis fan-base of Y&R will be so overwhelmed with the return of MS that she could write her own ticket/contract! PLEASE come back to us on Y&R….PLEASE. I agree with the others that there is too much talent being wasted on a web-series? Write and produce on a larger scale maybe? Just, work that time into that new Y&R contract!… Read more »

Loved it! I have watched ‘the Young and the Restless” and “Bold & Beautiful” almost since beginning of the shows. I was sorry to see Michelle leave but understand her need for change. I miss the interaction between the two actors. I have always felt Soap Actors are under appreciated. Michelle’s new project shows that actors have many sides to their acting abilities. Thanks Michelle for taking the leap and believing in yourself enough to show your fans that acting is all about being able to entertain in different genres.

Oh Michelle, I understand wanting to try something different, now that you have run back to the Y&R before that new person wakes up. This new project is just not it, I’m sorry. Now that you have a beautiful child you are going to need a lot more cash coming in, take it from me I raised three on my own and wow was it tuff. If I had a star quality job like yours I would never leave, it’s ok to follow your dreams just don’t leave your cash cow on the side of the road, some other hot… Read more »

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.
