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!

Days Of Our Lives

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
