Y&R's Stacy Haiduk Talks The World Of Crazy Patty & The Baby Secret That Could Shatter Sharon's Family!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Now that the kitties are about to come out of the bag, sort of speak, on upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless, it looks like Sharon’s (Sharon Case) luck may have run out thanks to crazy Patty Williams (Stacy Haiduk).

For months, Sharon has been hiding the fact that baby Sully is actually the late Sage’s son with Nick (Joshua Morrow), err really Adam, but that’s a secret for another time!  Thus, she has been raising the young baby boy as her bio-son with Dylan (Steve Burton).

On Thursday’s episode of the number one-rated soap opera, Dylan and Sharon visit Patty at Rivercrest, unnerving Sharon to such a major extent that it does not go unnoticed by Dylan.  Patty may have found her way to freedom, or may she have pushed Sharon over the edge to finally purge herself and reveal her deception?

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with the woman being the troubled and the crazy, actress Stacy Haiduk, at the recent premiere gathering for CBS Daytime’s 30 years at number one exhibit at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, now on display to the public through November 27th.

The exhibit offers a unique and creative window into the world of the CBS afternoon programming block of current shows, (Y&R, B&B, The Talk, The Price is Right and Let’s Make a Deal) as well as iconic series from the network lineup’s past including: As the World Turns and Guiding Light.

Haiduk took a walk with us through the festivities and answered some rapid fire questions into what makes Patty tick, and teases the fallout of the baby Sully reveal.

Patty is causing major trouble right now for Sharon!

STACY:  I don’t think she wants to cause trouble, I think she wants to get things straight.  As much as I love Patty, while she is in the midst of causing the love, she is also causing trouble, because she wants what she wants.

Does she want Sharon to pay for her deception? 

STACY:  I think she wants Sharon to help.  She has empathy for Sharon, but because Sharon definitely knows what happened at Fairview, Patty would like to manipulate that into something to help Patty.  So since Patty sees herself helping Sharon, she wants her to do the same for her!   I think Patty deserves a little help.  (Laughs)

So, is playing crazy Patty easy for you to slip into when you are on set taping these scenes?

STACY:  No, because she changes.  She changes like I change in life.  But what’s funny is when I get on set, I always try to play her not so crazy, but she naturally falls into her place, which she does.  I love playing with everybody at Y&R, and I just love playing scenes with Sharon Case.

Elizabeth Bogush, who played Dr. Anderson, was so despicable of her treatment of Patty!  Ultimately, Patty killed her.  Now, Patty is not too happy about Mariah (Camryn Grimes) being up in her business, either. What can you say about working with Elizabeth and Camryn Grimes?

STACY:  Elizabeth Bogush was amazing.  Dr. Anderson was a terrible, mean, nasty woman!  And as much as my character despises Mariah, I love working with Camryn Grimes.  But as Patty, she thinks of Mariah, “No!  I don’t like you. You are going to make Sharon to this and keep this secret!” Patty doesn’t really like, or trust Mariah.

Does Patty clearly understand everything that happened with the baby Sully switcheroo?

STACY:  Yes she does, absolutely.  She is as sympathetic to babies, as she is to kitties, doggies, and other animals.  She wants it all to go the right place. Patty loves these sweet little innocent beings and things.  It’s all coming out, and unraveling, and it needs to happen, because it’s time.

Will she confess all to her brother, Pauly?

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

STACY:  She will see Pauly, but it’s a little difficult for her, because she wants to tell him the truth.  The issue with Pauly is that she wants to let it out all, but she can’t find a way, so she does it through her paintings.  Patty is beyond frustrated at this point.   I am telling you as an actress when I am looking into Doug Davidson’s eyes, I want so badly to tell him what Patty knows about the baby! (Laughs)

How many years now have you been on and off Y&R as Patty? Do you like coming back in for a “pop” with a big story arc, or would you like to be on full-time?

STACY:  I think I have been on the show on and off for six or seven years.  I would love to be on full-time, but they would have to do show that Patty always something off in the brain, and I don’t know if all of a sudden as an actress playing this part, I could all of a sudden be just fine.  But I love Patty.  This is such a fantastic character to come in and play.  I truly, genuinely, want to see where Patty will go, and what’s ahead for her.  It’s the one character in my entire life that I have played where I say, “No, no. no.  I have to see where she goes, I need to know.”

Courtesy/CBS

Will there be a showdown between Patty and Sharon that fans of the show are clamoring to see?

STACY:  Hmmm.  There might be a showdown with Sharon.  There might be.

So, have you been enjoying the performances of Stacy Haiduk?  Do you hope Sharon’s web of lies are finally brought to light by crazy Patty? How do you think the big reveal will go down on the baby Sully secret? 

What will happen next to Patty? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

Oh, Kay. I love ‘Patty’, also. She is just magnificent in portrayingn the disturbed, but good-hearted ‘crazy’ woman. I only wish TPTB coukd find a permanent place for her, sans the emotional/mental ‘upheaval’.
Stacy does have a point. How does someone go from a caged animal committing unthinkable acts to suddenly be free, becoming unhindered by any kind of mental issues ?
I have confidence and faith in TPTB . I know ‘they’ can fix it! Look at Franco ( GH). LOL.
Well, it could work!!!! Pleeeease!!!!!

I am not a careful watcher like many, however, one day Victor just said Scully was Adam’s. Never made sense to me. How on earth did he know (other than he is Victor.) I remain open to Nick being Scully’s father. Although that gives him a lot of children. Some things need to settle as all of us move on.

Mo

I love Patty and Stacy.

I wonder, if after they find out Adam is Sully’s father, if they would let Sharon and Dylan raise him since technically both his parents are dead. Well, we think. But as Steve Burton is leaving….but I wouldn’t be against the role being recast.

I think it’d be interesting if they did a DNA test on Sully and came back not as Nick’s child, then people would think Patty was wrong.

Lisa

Considering good ol Victor knows the truth – that Sully/Christian is actually Adam’s son and he hates Sharon and Dylan,hell stop at nothing to stick it to them.
I think Nick would rally and being a stand up guy would take on the responsibility anyway and he,Chelsea,Conner and Christian would form a family – that is of course until Adam resurrects from the dead….again.

Would Nick want to form a family with Chelsea when he finds out that she knew that Adam was the father. All those times he was pouring his heart out to her and she didn’t say anything about it. Poor Nick is going to be brokenhearted yet again. Who will he be able to talk to and trust now. Not to mention world war three will erupt when he gets a hold of Victor, who of course is right in the middle of things as always. Stacy Hadiuk is phenomenal as Patty. And her scenes with Doug Davidson is icing… Read more »

Hi, Lisa,
I wasn’t aware that Victor know that Sully is Christian. I thought he only knew that Christian was Adam’s and not Nick’s? I, also, thought Victor believes Christian is dead; otherwise, wouldn’t he do everything in his power to ‘snatch’ Sully if he were a Newman? His grandson?
But, I could be wrong.

Celia

That’s ok, Lisa. LOL, I was second-guessing myself. Do much going on; can’t keep it all im the filing cabinet in my head. If I rebemer correctly, Adam knew Christian was his son, albeit I can’t remember how he found out. Anyway, Adam bribed the technician ( how original, eh? LOL) to fudge the test to make it look like Nick was Christian’s father; so not to open a can of worms. He confessed this to Chelsea….thst’s how she knows. No one else knows, including Victor. I don’t think he has any idea. It would be so simple if “Sully”… Read more »

I think this question was already asked, Mo. was it you? I think this would be up to the courts….and Sharon’s mental stability doesn’t help her in any way.
I would think that Christian would go to the closest relative if Nick is revealed not to be the father……which leads back to his marriage to Sage. Christian was born while Sage and Nick were married. Nick’s name, as the father, is on the birth certificate. So, legally, the baby belongs to Nick.
Again, in real life, this would be litigated in court.
But, my dear friend, Mo, this is Y&R…..

Sorry Celia I should have been more clear with my writing.
When Victor finds out that Christian is alive – he is Adam’s son and NOT Nick’s.
I didn’t know though that Chelsea knows the truth too – I must have missed that episode.

@Nanci. Hi, Nanci. You know; i really liked Travis. What changed? When? I really can’t put my finger on it. I suppose it could be the fact that he is a newcomer to both the Newman family and Newman employee, but, takes it upon himself to slink snd skulk behind doors or by whatever means to get Jack? Now, I ask…..what’s in it for him? Is it just an innocent gesture to show Victoria and the rest of the Newmans that he is trustworthy when all is said and done? Or, does he have a more nefarious agenda? I wish… Read more »

Love Stacy Haiduk and her portrayal of Patty Williams, but this inane storyline needs to end – one of the worst storylines ever on “Y & R” – contrived, inane and utterly unbelievable!!

December 7th can’t get here fast enough for this 30+ year viewer!!

Tucker ..
Soaps are and always have been ”’ contrived, inane and utterly unbelievable!!”’
It is fantasy/soap world- nothing is real. That is the cornerstone of soaps..
But– I can’t tolerate when it becomes asinine stupid or lame ((as GH, lately has become a HUUUGE crying jag, sigh )) ..

Y&R has held my attention, I’m good with it.

Hi, su, Agreed. Well put: ” Patty is a Williams”. And, I will forever blame Jack for Patty’s mental disorder. He put her through so much, back in the day, from what my Gran said. But, I remember, even as a kid, what a debaucher Jack was. As you can see, I do not like Jack ( with a passion). I think Patty was not ‘handled’ the way one deals with depression. This is the result. Patty has the potential to become the heroine. She does have lucid moments. But, when a barrage of questions are asked of her, she… Read more »

But, I have a question. What’s up with Travis. I am getting weird vibes about him? Are you, su?
He is fishing….he tries too hard spreading his charm.
I trust your opinion. Is it just my imagination? I don’t think he’s on the ‘up-n-up’.

Nanci

I agree, Celia. Travis is turning out to be much less than Victoria’s knight in
shining armor…too bad. She doesnt need another guy in her life to end up
being a jerk. To move him into her home with her kids so soon, too…just
stupid!!

I hope she will remain on my screen, someway somehow, she needs to stay.

i agree about stacey.. her acting is mezmorizing
imo the new phylliss isnt working, michelle staffords the one and only . i think stacey shld stay on as the psychiatrist emily, treat sharon and patty andthe show should pair her back up with jack. the two were great together. phyliss without michelle is unnecesarry now. pair emily with jack and chloe with billy

Stacy Haiduk has truly taken the character of Patty Williams to new heights, and I have to admit, for the past year, she has been rocking the role. I, too, would love to see her full-time in Genoa City but, I feel like, she’d have to be more sane, and I don’t see that happening anytime for Patty. I’m hoping the new regime will cater to Stacy’s talents and allow for Patty to come and play for more than guest-stints.

Oh, my God—this story has me as captivated as when Sheila switched babies on the show so many years ago. This is being told differently but I am still begging for the secret to come out finally. It was agonizing watching it play out for as long as it did back then and it is just as painful to see this now although it really is great entertainment. I am glad this story has helped me escape my real life for that little bit of time every day.

I have watched y&r for decades I love Sharon Case and Steve Burton as a couple why remove his character why not recast Dylan with another actor. Also let Sharon and Dillon keep Sully not let secret out because of Victor being involved. Don’t let secret out!!

I think Dylan has had his fill of Genoa City and Sharon’s deception is the last straw. I sense he will return. (Paul deserves a solid relationship with one of his children!) There is more Dylan can do but now? I’d get out too! I am eager to see how new writers handle the fallout of this stupid plot line that is a retread basically of what we saw with Sharon and Ashley, but also does nothing to endear us to Sharon or to give us encouragement this troubled woman can step up. I find it difficult to forgive Sharon… Read more »

Agreed, Cathy. I want Christian to be Nick’s. Get Chelsea out of the picture, please!!!! I am interested to see what TPTB will do with Sharon. Steve is leaving, as I said, to lick his wounds. So, that leaves Nick for Sharon, where he belongs. Let’s hope he will feel compassion and understands that Sharon was not in her right mind. It would be great if Nick were the one to get Sharon the help she needs. Yes, I know this will be for the umpteenth time, but I think Nick and everyone involved will be rattled and raging mad.… Read more »

I will say this much about Stacy, she is a wonderful actress and a wonderful human being. She happens to be on one of my Facebook #YR groups and that’s where I met her. She actually liked my comments and even friended me on FB too. I actually told her that I felt that she was robbed of an Emmy nomination during her first go around as Patty and as the psychiatrist that she played in that dual role. I really hope that the Emmy voters don’t overlook her again this time around. She’s been absolutely fantastic as Patty. She… Read more »

Michael Andrews: I so agree with your every word. You nailed it just as Stacy nails in with the nuances, the mannerisms, the fluctuating moods and yes, she does it with subtlety so she doesn’t rise up to become a comic book villain the way Sheila did.
And on to a more petty point; she is really, really very pretty with great bone structure.
This actress should be on every producers’ wish list.

While I love Stacy Hadiuk and her talents, I do not like the story line with Patty Williams. We can pity her for all her ills but she has done truly awful things. I fear Patty has been written into a corner. I am not sure I would like to see her out in the real world. I mean, look how the writers have treated Sharon and her mental illness! I loved Stacy Hadiuk with Peter Bergman when Ms. Hadiuk was playing Patty’s doctor. She was a smart, forward, attractive career woman who matched Jack and challenged him.

Stacy does a fine job as Patty. GH has Heather and Y&R has Patty. Both are phenomenal actors and its a shame they are painted into a corner! One thing I didnt and dont like is I dont want Patty’s twin doctor to come back. She and Jack were horrible as a couple!

The PTB would be wise to listen to an overwhelming majority of fans who want Stacy Haiduk’s ‘Patty’ to be on screen full-time. Y&R is on fire right now with this story, and Haiduk is mind-blowing as the often-tortured, psychotic, homicidal and beautiful ‘Patty’. More, please!

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

What did you think about how Steve and Bradford addressed their disagreement on the vaccine mandate within the podcast? Will you be seeing Steve and Bradford live if they come to your town in 2022? Comment below.
