Popularity just shifted up. MCE will rise to the top.


MS is much more popular than MCE at YR. If the PTB attempt making Chelsea the nuPhyllis, it's an epic fail. Chelsea is boring as she can be.
The character bores me to tears with the crazy destructive antics.

All these references to what JFP did over at GH and what's she's doing now on Y&R remind me of what she did to Another World in the mid-90s. From late '95 to late '96, she really set AW on its painful, three-year march toward death, beginning with making it over as an ER (the prime-time series) clone.

She was also well-hated on Guiding Light before. Basically, everything she touches turns to shit.

I know MS is more popular than MCE. But if MS leaves, that will bring on a popularity switch and MCE will be the popular one. The other actresses on that show have shown they don't have what it takes to replace MS.

Or maybe CBS has decided to bring back VR and that's why she's leaving (a girl can only hope but i don't see that happening)
I dont think CBS will be inclined to hire VR back.
She certainly haven't censored her comments towards the shows and the network.
And quite frankly, I dont want her back. Also she and her two fans will not increase the ratings either.
Ms. Stafford on the other hand, is more politically correct in her interview comments.

Ms. Phelps mentioned in one of the many interviews she gave during her first few months that she was hired
as a budget/cost cutter while still giving fans something to enjoy.
I dont think she will want to hire VR because she will probably cost too much and demand too much.

Why hasn't VR gotten any serious acting jobs since leaving Y&R?
Is she that desperate to be back on a show in which she is not wanted?

Will she be recasted, or is ole Smilin Jack headed for heartbreak, yet again? :rolleyes:
Recast or recasting. Sorry but it just drives me crazy when I see recasted.

Michelle left before and was gone a number of years before she came back this time, since her little girl is in the toddler stage she might feel that she wants to be with her more, who knows why I'm sure all will be revealed and cussed and discussed, I for one will not miss Phick I liked her with Jack but since that is being shut down I won't miss her but they are making Avery and Chelsea the new queens of the soap, SC may be on her way out, who know maybe Michael and Lauren will split up for good and she may be the next one to go, after all the newbies don't make the money the vets do, but then they don't act as well as the vets and we know the vets stories. Avery is known around my house as "smiley" because she always smiles even when she is given "bad news" and she isn't well liked around here either. So as they go off one or two at a time Y&R will ceased to be our soap and JFP can be thanked for saving Sony a lot of money. Of course we can help by not buying their products either if they cancel the soap. But if she keeps up she'll soon be out of a job as there won't be anymore soaps she can ruin.

Usually I'd be like "WONDERFUL NEWS"... but they've subdued the Phyllis character since JG took over as writer, and the bitch is hardly on anymore as it is. Phyllis should've been taken off the canvas around 2009 or 2010 IMO.

Nevertheless I hope this is true, and I hope there is no recast. Phyllis is a slutty, skanky and really mean character that I have no use for.
I wouldn't be too happy. If they're getting rid of Phyllis, I wouldn't be surprised if Sharon was next. All hatred for MS and her character aside, this is bad news for Y&R vets in general.

Clearly JFP's Y&R vision emphasizes the newbies at the expense of the veterans.
I just don't get what Sharon has to do with any of this? She is always thrown back at me when I discuss Phyllis anywhere.

Let's wait and see why MS is leaving. It might have been her own choice, maybe JFP tried to get her to stay :shrug:
How many times can we see dumb ass Sharon spreading her legs or having a breakdown? And worse yet, she is over 40 on a show with an EP that caters to a young audience. According to NB, SC is safe because she is a team player. I think translated that means, unlike MS, SC will take a pay cut and do any and all demeaning storylines they write for her character.

MS wouldn't have any troubles getting a job. She won't need Hallmark or those pathetic sappy stories they come up with. She won't have to sell clothes or make up or jewelry. She won't be desperate if and when she leaves.
It worked out so well for her the last time she left... :whistle:

I doubt Rowell will be returning even with Stafford leaving.

Wasn't it the president of SONY that basically prevented Rowell from trying out for a role on DAYS?

Excuse me, but Stafford was a wonderful extra in Double Jeopardy :)

While my previous comments about MS have been critical, I honestly want to know if the rumor is true. Did she really start her career in porn?

I think JFP's tenure at YR is getting an unfair rap. What vets has she fired? What giant mistakes has she made? We don't know why the banshee left. It is hating for the sake of hating.

I don't know, the same amount of time we saw Phyllis spread her legs or wave her hands around like a freak? :shrug: I believe MS has massive ego issues. I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was about lack or airtime. MAB catered to her constantly, this new regime put some shock into her. No longer is she on 23 episodes a month (thankfully).

Not true. JFP has an established record as an egotistical hack who transforms long running soaps into a shadow of their former "glory " (I use the quotes because some of the shows she destroyed had a head start before she got there and even after her butchering, were further degraded by her successors.). She plays favorites and brings on personal friends as recasts of existing characters or air hogging newbies. She said herself in the beginning of her Y&R tenure that she'd be bringing a "scalpel " to the show. Granted NB isn't the most reliable of sources but he usually at least gets the timing of of contract negotiations right. I'm obviously not privvy to the backstage wranglings but JFP also has a track record of disposing of popular FEMALE characters /performers. Look at most of her new hires. Cronies from other shows playing new characters and a few established younger ones. I base my "hate " on her history and some of the moves she's made since landing at the show I've watched from day one. This show hasn't been right since LML took over. There was some false hope (at least on my part) at the very beginning of MABs run but she went way off the rails. When those women took over, those who expressed concern were "jumping the gun " and were "Chicken Little "s . But they were proved right in the end. MS has indeed been overexposed, inconsistently written for and is guilty of overacting and phoning it in. It isn't so much about her. It's about popular performers being culled from the show come contract time. Pardon the novel length response.

I disagree with you. MCE will not have a popularity shift when MS leaves. MCE doesn't have what it takes, she's barely hanging on as Chelsea on the show.

Some actresses/actors aren't replaceable, MS is one of them.

EXCLUSIVE! Y&R's Michelle Stafford Confirms Exit

By SOD Posted: May 21, 2013


Emmy-winning actress Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) tells Digest exclusively that she is, indeed, heading out of Genoa City. "I would like to personally confirm to the fans that yes, I have decided to leave THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. It has been a glorious 16 years and one of the greatest rides of my life. The constant support and love from the fans is not lost on me. I think I'll miss you the most." The actress wraps up her run in mid-June; look for a full interview with Stafford in a future issue of Soap Opera Digest.

It would be nice if they honored her character by killing her off.

I think a hit and run would be the way for her to exit the show. LOL.
