She looks familiar but I wouldn't have known who she was. I was once a big fan of Y&R but, that's back when I had time to watch TV ;)

I used to watch Y&R back in the day but I haven't kept up with it lately. I'm more into General Hospital these days but my mother is always trying to get me to watch Y&R because she is addicted. I know if I start watching again I'll be hooked.The whole cast including Michelle is very talented.

She's very watchable on Y&R, which is good TV.

She's really given Phyliss quite a personality.

Sounds like the Phyllis character has had a long run and Michelle Stafford has managed to keep her colorful the whole time...sounds like she's had fun with the role! :)
