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!

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!!!

I COULDN’T AGREE MORE!!!!!

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 don’t like “reality” television, but The Stafford Project is freakin’ hilarious! keep it up. it’s hard to take risks and leave a successful show after many years and 2 emmys. bravo to michelle for being brave enough to do so!

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!”

p.s. Ref. comments from Mark & Sharon (above) — Sorry that

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.

Michele, you need to be on the big screen or on prime time. You are amazing! Lose the Scientology cult and you will go far!

Jean

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 her best abilities in my opinion. If you don’t come back to Y & R please step it up!

Sharon

Absolutely what I was trying to say. You said it better. Thank you!

I might have to start a change.org petition….I love the web serie as a compliment to Y&R.. please get back to Y&R where you belong. I love your acting so much that I will come here to get a dose of you but 8 minutes does not cut it!!!

Hi Michelle!

I have followed you on The Stafford Project………still wondering why you left Y & R.
PLEASE go back! It sucks without you…….and unfortunately…..The Project sucks too.

Still love you……go back!

I think these web shows are hilarious! I had no idea Michelle was that funny!! I think she would be great on a sitcom. I am so bummed she has left y&r but I think she’ll do great in whatever she chooses. I hope there are more web shows to come!!

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.

Dana

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.

Rose

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!

Bennie

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! 😉

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 chick just might pick it up. I think you are the greatest and I want the best for you, coming from a Mother’s point of view, I’m not hating. I’m talking from experience, Love You Girl

Lee Phillip Bell, Legendary Co-Creator Of Y&R and B&B, Passes Away

The entire soap world and daytime community is saddened today with the news of the passing of a true icon and TV pioneer, Lee Phillip Bell.

According to her children, William James Bell, Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and Lauralee Bell Martin (Christine, Y&R), Lee passed away on February 25th at the age of 91.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
