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!

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
