    they should also re-investigate the “accidental” death of her friend Sasha Greene.

    iirc, she was going to rat out Phyllis until her apartment conveniently burned to the ground with her in it.

    Unlike like GH, we’re folks that kill children and put them in danger and never pay for their crimes Y&R makes sure that eventually, KARMA makes you pay.

    This is one of the many things I love about Y&R. Eventually, Karma comes a knocking on your door, and you Reap what you have sowed. I think it’s great soapy storytelling. Because your not suppose to be able to constantly cause trouble for oghers because things don’t go the way you want them to, Ms Phyllis Newman and get to have a happy life. Yup, I’m happy about Ms Phyllis getting some payback.

    I’m minority but THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD on Phyllis’s ass! :love: Love the flashback, I remember this like yesterday! I can’t wait. I’m so likening Cricket & Danny back in the mix. Especially when Danny clocked on Phyllis’s ass about their marriage and compared Daniel marrying Daisy for Lucy. Loved Cricket being bitchy towards, Genura in Friday’s episode. I will admit when I’ve been wrong on some instance, Genie Francis’s has been so much better in performance wise (compared to her Gloria Swanson imitation in the beginning)I can actually say I now see why GH’s fans liked her. She’s toned it down and been giving the character some growth and I have liked her scenes, especially with Victor and sticking to him. :)

    Here! Here! You said it! That is Bill Bell’s story telling, he would leave some storylines undone and then come back to haunt your ass….Drucilla & Malcolm and Lily story came back 15 yrs later.

    Maria Arena Bell and her co-hacks have dropped the ball on nearly every story since her reign of terror began in early 2008 – how desperate is she for story material that she has to go back 16 years and will, no doubt, trash another Bill Bell legacy story line??

    This will no doubt be rushed to further introduce the newly (and quite unnecessarily) SORAS’ed Summer and Fenmore Baldwin – I can actually hear the ratings fall….!!

    I viewing it a different set of glasses and waiting to see, very possible Maria will screw this up but when the mindset of negativity is ingrained without even giving it chance the negativity breeds nothing but negative thoughts hard to see nothing else very hard to change one’s thinking and a positive out look also breeds things to happen in a positive light…by a little trust same as faith and :) religion. I’m keeping a open mind, just my mindset IMO. 0:)

    They’ll botch this up in an effort to give Michelle/SyPhyllis an Emmy reel for next year (if there will be an Emmy reception next year). If she ends up miscarrying, it will only be a ridiculously unrealistic attempt at redeeming her for past crimes. In the end… THIS WILL FUCKING SUCK!

    I couldn’t agree more. Phyllis isn’t going to finally get what she deserves, she will be the victim of big bad Ricky. It’s so predictable.

    Very much so. Get ready for plenty of soliloquies and the pegging of Phyllis as some sort of heroine. It never fails.

    I may be in the minority, but I’ve always loved Phyllis, even BAD Phyllis. Back in the day, I was rooting for her to mow that BUG Cricket down with that rented green Ford Taurus. Don’t get me wrong, I love Paul, but I could never stand the sanctimonious Christine/Cricket along with her perpetual look of concern that has always been her countenance. Phyllis just acted on everyone else’s fantasy! LOL Before you all get scared, this is a soap opera and pure fantasy, not real life. As for Phyllis not getting punished for her actions, I think karma paid her back in other ways, like losing custody of Daniel to the man who ended up not even being his father after all, and losing the love of her life, Nicholas, over and over again to his first love, Share-a-bed. Phyllis has had it rough, but she never gives up, and she has risen above what she was to become a force of nature and a true heroine.

Actually, there are Thrift Store of Ohio…no bs I got a pair Chanel sunglasses a very, very nice pair for $12. They are a huge thrift stores here and I shop there all the time. The finds I get. I got a men’s black Gucci suit tailored for $24…LOL!

    love her and hate her at the same time – I always have! Some of the truth will come out – but because Ricky is so crazy – his craziness will out weigh what she’s done.

    I can honestly say here that she’s too old for Nick. I have always thought that – they do have good chemistry – but the age difference really bugs me! I really thought her and Ronan was pretty gross. Knowing that was Nina’s son and they are suppose to all be around the same age? I think Nina is younger?

    I mentioned this on Twitter and Michelle Stafford blocked me on twitter! I even apologized – the ‘actress’ does not like hearing the truth I guess. I wasn’t trying to offend her; or say she is too old – just that the character is too old for the Nick character..that’s all! geez.

    So many scenarios that involve Phyllis that she has never paid for — drew falling off the cliff for one. AND she is the whole reason that crazy Daisy even had access to Lucy to begin with..she started that whole fiasco in motion! What a hypocrite! love to hate her….

    Will that past haunt Phyllis or will it just haunt us all the more? Phyllis will not get the karma that so many of us hope for simply because (as also has been mentioned) MS is the now for some reason the Star(let) Diva of Y&R and star(let) divas get to keep on going on and on.

    By the way … that first photo in this thread looks so much like something out of a Japanese or Korean horror movie. Oh right … Phyllis is a horror!

    Phyllis is essentially the female Victor Newman of the show(redundant much?). Used to LOVE LOVE LOVE her, but my final straw with her was bringing Daisy’s robot ass back to town (knowing all the previous shit she pulled) and then snatching Lucy away from Billy and Victoria. As Jillian would say, someone really needs to hoe check her ass and then slap her flat of it(personally, I would love to see Cricket knock her the hell out). Alas, the ultimate consequences of this whole story will be a miscarriage–and subsequent sainthood–for Phyllis and, I suspect, death for creepy(but hot)Ricky. And then the same story will be regurgitated yet again in about a year.

    I actually thought Sandra Nelson was great as Phyllis; she could be a little over-the-top(not Brenda Dickson over-the-top, but still)but I’d argue Michelle Stafford has done her fair share of scenery killing during her time on the show. Unfortunately, Nelson’s basically an afterthought in the Y&R annals because Phyllis begins and ends with Stafford and anyone else’s version is sacrelige ;).

    I’m still thinking that with Detective Paul, Saint Cricket, Phyllis the Red and everyone else quickly jumping to the conclusion that Ricky is a demented pyscho; it will all turn out to be one very big red herring. If I am wrong then I doubt that he will die but will remain in the background to haunt.

    They should have played the episode where Phyllis hits Paul and Cricket with the car instead of this repeat of Sharon going down memory lane. I didnt watch Y&R when the Phyllis/Paul/Cricket stuff was going on and would like to see what happend. They definitely dropped the ball on showing a past episode thats actually affecting the current storyline of the show…

    Sandra Nelson was good as Phyllis, but Michelle OWNS the role, bar none. I really wish that Stafford could have played those scenes where Danny finds out the truth and she lost Daniel. They would have been WAYYYY more powerful. Stafford missed out on the meatiest scenes.

    But all pleasantries aside: fast forward to 2012 and SyPhyllis is a raging bitch who needs a tranquilizer dart. She’s gone way too far. I do enjoy the fact that she still HATES Cricket, since I have never liked Cricket either, but for once, I am rooting for the BUG to come out on top!

    It’s funny how lopsided writing can make you switch teams!!

    alstonboy-is your current avatar of Miss Rowell from the episode where Dru and Phyllis showed up at the Newman Ranch Arts Gala and they were both wearing the same Forrester Creations ensemble? I thought those scenes were hysterical. If it’s not, it’s still a lovely picture. Miss her so much… 0:)

    I don’t recall where this picture was taken or when. But you are always a sweetheart! And I miss her too, but make sure you watch her later on this season on VH1′s “Single Ladies.” She will be appearing for three episodes. :)

    Uggghhh…..Phyllis has to be one of the most annoying characters in daytime. Second only to freakin’ Starr. Blah. Someone needs to slap her. Can’t stand her and how they cater so much of the show to her. The only time I root for her is when it comes to the Bug. Ms. Self-Righteous is too much.

    No doubt MAB will eff this storyline up. Phyllis will come out smelling like roses.

    I would LOVE for Phyllis and Victor to be a couple. Two peas in a pod.

    Well Victor does seem to be starting to move through his children’s spouses. When he is done with Sharon and then with Phyllis I wonder how long it will be before he realizes and declares his undying love for Billy?

    I’m really enjoying the storyline. not understanding people spewing negativity before the crap even airs, but whatever….

    Anyway, on a lighter note…I don’t hate Phyllis. I don’t LOVE her. But I DO find it great that after all these years this is finally coming up. I don’t think it’s sloppy. I think it’s a good storyline and they are doing it well, at least so far. I hope it doesn’t get dragged on to the point of being stupid. And I hope they write with some restraint and don’t completely turn Ricky into a psychopath. Let Phyllis pay for her deeds, and don’t make the story solely about Crazy Ricky…

    I’ve never liked character Phyllis from the time she walked on no offense to the actress; just never liked her…but it was good scenes with Danny he put her in check.

    stoney07 … I hear you completely regarding the second paragraph of your post #37. Regarding the first line though, I think many of us have good reason not to trust what those monkeys on typewriters are bashing out for us.

    Cyberologist … I also agree with your post. How dare Phyllis tear into Danny after she practically pleaded with him to come on over and help out. Besides, Daniel is now a adult who should be able to figure out on his own how to deal with his lovely new wife. (Not to mentioned that he has been servicing Jessica Lange one place and selling drugs to witches in another.)

    Now … It would be so much easier to like Devon if he weren’t so much the asshole that Neil so often is (witness the way he pushed his mother out of Ashley’s path on your Memorial Day).

    Also … You’d think Paul would have enough sense by now to be so obvious to who he thinks is a demented criminal that he is doggedly investigating him.
