In a new interview out today with TV Guide, the Y&R’s  fantastic Michelle Stafford discusses Phyllis’s latest drama’s which include sleuthing in New Orleans, finding Sharon and Nick in the Big Easy, her vendetta with Diane Jenkins and becoming an on-screen grandmother.  Here are a few excerpts of what the two-time Daytime Emmy winner had to say!

Stafford on Phyllis becoming a grandmother: “One day someone in our wardrobe department, who gets all the story stuff in advance, said, “You’re not gonna like this! You’re not gonna like this! You’re gonna be a grandma!” People think I should be horrified, but I think it’s awesome! It humanizes Phyllis and balances out all that funky s–t she does. And I just love that! Most women who are at an age where they can become a grandmother do have an issue with that. So even though they’re not really writing it that way for me, I keep playing it as if Phyllis has a big problem with it. I think it’s much more realistic. And it’s definitely Phyllis.

Stafford on Phyllis’s behavior towards Diane, and her scathing expose on her enemy: “God bless the writers because they actually had Phyllis feeling bad but I wouldn’t play it like that. The writers are always trying to preserve any sort of goodness and decency that she has. But I’m like, wait a second! Let’s not forget that Diane worked very hard to put Phyllis in prison. Diane burned down the pool house and threw her body under a car. She did all this to get Jack! It was a two-year storyline! When someone who has done all that suddenly comes back to town saying. “Oh, hi! I’ve changed!” you don’t just take it. You’re, like, fuhgeddaboudit! So, no, Phyllis wasn’t sorry about the effect that article had on Diane’s kid. He should know his mother is a horrible person. Phyllis is trying to do something right for this town — at least that’s the way she’s worked it out in her mind.

I F–CKING love Stafford!!! She is just as bold, brash and sassy as her character on the show. Thanks so much for the interview! Phyllis is just as riveting to watch as she was 16 years ago. She’s an enormously talented actress and my absolute favorite to watch. I love that she’s kicking ass again and taking names! I think she should mow down Diane next!! Can’t wait for the location scenes in New Orleans!

leave to The Stafford to keep it REAL!!! I love her passion and conviction and belief in her character!!

MF, you really came off as very biased in your questions! Not everyone loves Sharon or SHICK! Sharon was not the grieving little woman sitting at home during the PICK affair, she was a dog in heat going after Brad, who she was ALREADY in love with!

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.
