The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Phyllis Casting Call After Michelle Stafford on General Hospital - Jill Farren Phelps Furious

Rumors were making their way around the soap opera community for months that The Young and the Restless alum Michelle Stafford was headed to ABC’s General Hospital. GH viewers were shocked last week when it was revealed on an episode of the soap that Stafford had indeed headed over to the ABC soap and was playing the role of Silas Clay’s not-so-dead wife Nina Clay.

Shortly after Jill Farren Phelps took over The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford announced she was leaving the CBS soap after nearly a decade. Y&R fans were certain that Stafford was leaving due to differences with the new producer Phelps. The Young and the Restless writers quickly wrote Stafford’s character Phyllis out of the series and put her in a coma in Georgia.

It seemed like The Young and the Restless writers and Jill Farren Phelps had completely forgotten about Phyllis and had no intention of recasting her. It’s no coincidence that literally days after it was revealed that Michelle Stafford had headed to General Hospital, TPTB at The Young and the Restless put out a casting call for Michelle’s old character Phyllis.

The casting call released states, “Phyllis is beautiful, smart and conniving. She is confident in her own sexuality and is unafraid to use it to get what she wants. She knows she has power over men and many times has used it, both to her benefit and to her detriment. She definitely has an edge.

There is no doubt that Jill Farren Phelps is furious that Michelle Stafford switched teams and signed on to rival soap General Hospital, which is why she suddenly decided to put out a casting call for Stafford’s old character in an effort to show Michelle how replacable she is. One can only wonder how many disgruntled Y&R alums will follow her to General Hospital, maybe Michael Muhney or Billy Miller?

    Exactly well good for Jill Farren Phelps. Nobody would come to her casting call. She tried to look for a casting call for Adam Newman and nobody has showed up yet. I am glad that Michelle Stafford went on to General Hospital. General Hospital is so nice over there. The writer from One Life to Live Ron Carvalti puts something for everybody. He puts on one storyline after another so you can listen to what has been going on. I like that. General Hospital show to me all the way. Jill Farren Phelps just face it you have failed this show. You have bad writing since you came on the show. Your writers from as the world turns and general hospital have no imagination. Jill Farren Phelps just get rid of the young and the restless by in the July because you can’t come up with anything good. All you decided to do is mess up every single character storyline. Making Chloe drug and rape Billy so she can get pregnant again is so dumb. Why killed off a young, bright young girl and replace it with a new one. All Chloe cares about is being pregnant and giving birth to her baby. Chloe is useless on the show. All you writers likes is sluts like Kelly, Chloe and Sharon. How about you fix up Sharon storyline for a while. Sharon should go out more often.

    Jill Farren Phelps your casting call will always fail all the time. Michelle Stafford and Michael Muhney had disagreements with Jill Farren Phelps. They don’t want to be on the show anymore. That is why this show is going to stink. I moved from watching this show to watching General Hospital or other tv shows. This show is going to last til in September because of the bad writing. Jill Farren Phelps and her writers are old and doesn’t have any imagination. Summer has two fathers and it is all you guys fault. Just make Summer have one father. Having two fathers for Summer is so dumb. Sharon needs to remember of what she has been hiding. You guys created this mess and just finish it very soon. Sharon knows who is Summer father is and it is Nick. Summer would always be Nick daughter. Jack is going to hit the bottle for a while. You guys don’t want the others to know of what Sharon has done because you might lose your viewers of watching this show. I rather watch a tv show where it is going to make me laugh and the storylines is easy to follow. Ian Ward, David Tom as Billy, Colin, Abby needs to go. This Abby plays the older Abby. The real reason you don’t want to recast this Abby is because you can’t find anyone to replace her. Well good for you Jill Farren Phelps. You just ruined the number one soap of the history. Farewell to the show. Sometimes i don’t really care for the young and the restless. The storylines are weak.

    Yes she is leaving the show. Her last airdate is May 27. I agree with you pretty soon there won’t be anyone left on the show. This show will be missed. I heard that Elizabeth Hendickson aka Chloe is moving to General Hospital. She is going to play Robin. I hope not.
