The Young and The Restless' Joshua Morrow: "I Hurt a Very Good Friend Today"






Okay, scratch what I said about actors taking fanbase wars in stride. The Young and the Restless hunk Joshua Morrow (Nick) went back on Twitter late Wednesday night to apologize to TV wife Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Phick fans about believing Nick and Sharon (Sharon Case) belong together.

Tweeted Morrow:


Wait...Morrow didn't reveal on CBS Daytime's The Talk that he preferred working with Case over The Staff. He said he thought the C-H-A-R-A-C-T-E-R-S Nick and Sharon belonged together. I don't remember reading in classic Hollywood tomes about Clarke Gable being upset with Vivien Leigh because Scarlett wanted to untie her whale bone corset for Mister Ashley!

Later Morrow tweeted this:

I was wondering what me meant when he tweeted that.

What a pussy.

And it tells you why we just don't see certain things on-screen. Butt kissing Stafford while of course Sharon Case can't feel offended when these two take it to personal preference.

This show is full of egomaniacs. Isn't it sad!?

Did Ms. Stafford ask/tell the bosses to fire him or something?

What's wrong with what he said anyway? Of course Nick is going to get back with Sharon because no matter what, Sharon is to Nick what Nikki is to Victor and that will always be the Case (the almost pun intended).

Michelle Stafford has a LOT of sway, huh? In what universe will Phick ever have the history that Shick has? And also, isn't it understood that Jack and Phyllis are endgame?

On the other hand, perhaps Morrow just wanted to avoid disrespecting the current pairing he was in. That's understandable. I still don't get why Stafford would be so upset, however.

It's time that a regime come in and let MS know that she doesn't run the yard....And I think JFP is just the gal to do it.

I just read down the site and saw MS's tweet, then Braeden's response to Muhney below that.

Jamey, tell me honestly: You and the other DC bloggers must LOVE Y&R's dysfunction on some level, right? It makes content production a breeze on days like today! Tongue

SC was just as offended when JM said the Shick marriage went undisturbed for too long and wanted a change. and in an interview said that he apologized and did not want to hurt her feelings.

Difference is there was no twitter back then

I think it was noble but unnecessary for him to apologize. He was not speaking personally but from a character standpoint. And I agree.. it will always b about Nick & Sharon. Just like Sonny from GH can marry or bang every lady on the canvas but Brenda Barrett will ALWAYS be THE ONE!

I don't see anything wrong at all with what JM said and can't understand why he felt the need to apologize. Technically Nick and Phyllis aren't even together now and Shick have WAY more history together. Bill Bell himself said if I remember correctly that they were the younger generation of Nikki/Victor that belong together when all is said and done. JM has praised MS up, down, to the left and right along with praising Phick for years. He is a class act and the fact that he felt the need to apologize when it wasn't needed proves that again.

I think you are talking about the 2009 interview. In that, Joshua Morrow didn't apologized, he clarified his statement after he bashed Shick on various opportunities before. Back then the message boards where going crazy - and it's when I lost my love for Shick because of some statements Joshua made.
SC was offended by how JM spoke about his sexy scenes with Michelle; liking it more than the normality/boredom he had with "fair haired Sharon". That is what she took personally, because back then Josh basically said what here he didn't - he preferred an actress.

Why this has to be aired publicly is beyond me. Pathetic.

He should apologize in person to her or whatever. Putting in cyberspace is just dumb.

This is so damn stupid. I think as an actor you want variety and challenge. Nick and Sharon should probably be together (though I think she belongs with Adam) and I have no idea how MS could be offended by that statement. It doesn't mean he's against her or anything. People are starting to act like children.

He shouldn't have to apoloize at all. Sharon and Nick had been the couple since 1994 and then MS walked in and they started that. It's an opinion and really shouldn't offend her in the least!

Michelle Stafford is getting desperate. Someone just mentioned on Twitter that she keeps asking for younger and younger leading men. First Nick, then Ronan, maybe Kyle next? She's almost 50 years old, kissing a hot guy 15 years her junior (Ronan) won't change that!

I think she's freaking out because the new writer told TV Guide that Phyllis is going back to Jack and she doesn't want to work with an old(er) guy like Peter Bergman? I don't know but she's acting like a fool right now.

I hope JFP schools her once and for all!

She knows her real name isn't Phyllis right and that she gets paid regardless? I don't even watch anymore,I Just pay attention to backstage drama. And they think the fans are nuts.

Lame, shit I don't think he needed to apologize. That was his opinion on NICK and SHARON. Just like it was MS's opinion months back that PHYLLIS is in love with RONAN. Now she's retweeting Phonan fans.

I ain't shocked this bothered her though. Hell she blocks people just for thinking Phyllis looks better as a red head.

I don't see MS whining on twitter about it, JM is the one doing all the talking, hell even his wife called him out on it!

MS and Phyllis has been on the show since 1994 also, she did not just appear in 2005 and kidnap Nick, Nick went after Phyllis while Sharon was in heat over Brad.

JM to me was making a public apology for what he felt was a slight to MS and the PHICK pairing, I don't see MS having a hissy fit like SC did when he dissed SHICK.

He didn't need to apologize,and in a sarcastic way, MS's tweet was a passive aggressive hissy fit.

The reason JM's wife "loves Nick & Phyllis" is because she KNOWS she doesn't have to be jealous or worried about Michelle Stafford sleeping with Joshua... or any other leading MAN.

Any wife would be jealous or insecure about Sharon Case or the gal who plays Avery. They might be very well fall for a handsome guy like Joshua. But Michelle... hmmm, nope. No need to worry about that.

Exactly. The 2009 brouhaha was a different thing entirely. Saying an on-screen couple belongs together is not the same AT ALL as poo-pooing a coupling that made JM famous for well over a decade and going on and on about how MS upped his game at the expense of his former leading lady on the show. 2009 was about actor preference; this time he didn't show favoritism towards either actress.

That all being said, JM should have kept MS's feelings to himself. His tweets happened a few hours before hers, so in a way, he put her on the spot when she said nothing about what he said on The Talk at the time on Twitter. This is the second time he has spoken for his co-star and put her on blast for "hurt feelings" based on his wishy washing comments about Shick and Phick. SC never responded publicly to that 2009 interview (smart girl) - her being offended is what he said and what people have said occured BTS. Nothing was ever confirmed by SC; in fact she's never said anything about it to this day. IMO even if MS being all butt hurt is true, the common denominator in both occurrences is JM. Maybe he should not take it upon himself to speak for anyone else or not air dirty laundry on Twitter (even if it does keep buzz going on DC, sorry guys - LOL!). And dude, don't be such a pussy. Stand by what you say or don't say it at all. If you really think Shick are endgame, be about it!

I hope MS realizes that the ONLY WAY to redeam Sharon is to pair her back with Nicholas.

Red will be just fine. She always bounces out of (someone's) bed and lands on her feet. Smile

LOL. This cast more entertaining than the show. I don't understand why MS is upset. Everyone knows that Nick and Sharon are endgame, i don't like them but even i know that. So MS just need to deal with it.

I agree with you. This just makes him and Michelle Stafford both look silly. He could have apologized in private. Are these people not professionals?

I also think Morrow may be kowtowing to some of the Twitterazi (not all people on Twitter qualify but I'm referring to those people who relentlessly hound people on Twitter when they don't get their way) and it's not a good look on any side.

I wouldn't mind hearing that JFP started to crack the 'whip' and institute a little discipline to some of the cast members. I know many have been unhappy, some for years now but it's time to turn a page and start behaving like professionals.

He is entitled to have an opinion and Michelle' should not feel offended in the least. I admire his honesty. Why would she feel hurt? She is not her character.
