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!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday,  Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis o ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And …. make sure to wish Nancy a happy 25th via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
