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:

This is all being blown way out of proportion. In the end though it really does make Stafford look bad. I've always liked her, but she's lost some of my respect for acting out like that.

I must admit I am enjoying this. Can't wait to see what else transpires backstage with MS. Especially when she is actually paired with PB again. After all, isn't a pairing with PB's Jack the only reason Phyllis is on that show. She was rehabilitated just for him.

well I guess no one can provide this so called bitching that MS did about the talk appearance for JM and SC!!

much to do about nothing

funny no one is bashing JM, and he is the one that was doing ALL the posting on twitter, he is the one sucking up to MS and in response she is quiet.

wonder what MS did to make ya'll hate her so much? she is just an actor doing her job, just like all the other actors on the show.

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.

Really!!! All I can say is his wife should think about what happened with Jenifer Aniston or Eddie Cibrian's wife.

It is BEYOND weird for Michelle Stafford to be this obessed over Joshua Morrow. I know if I was his wife I would want to know why this single woman only wants to work with MY husband and not be paired with any of the other good looking guys on the show. Michelle Stafford rejected working with Daniel Goddard (prior to Lane) Chris Engen (First Adam) and Jeff Branson. The ONLY reason she started posting stuff about Phyllis & Ronan last year was because she already knew that Nick & Phyllis would be together when this storyline wrapped up.

The women that are normally after your man are the ones that you consider your friends imo.

Michelle Stafford isn't gay! Where do you guys come up with that? She was married for years, and after she got divorced she wanted a baby, so she had a surrogate carry it because she kept miscarrying. That doesn't make someone gay. Just because she's had more men than you, and you're jealous does not make her gay. Grow up!!

MS was never married from what I have read about her. She did have a boy friend that was a hockey player for a few years but that it from what she has stated in interviews.

I don't think she's gay at all!

WTF! MS isn't gay! Geez, is someone trying start something damaging on MS just because they can't stand the CHARACTER of PHYLLIS? Puzzled People need to learn to distinguish between character and the actor.

About this article, as many vet characters MAB has destroyed and the tally grows by the minute! I'm slightly burned out on the character of Phyllis and Josh has his job cut out to bring Phyllis back as Phyllis Y&R fans recognize. MS is good actress but she isn't the heroine of Y&R, Sharon is a heroine as Bill always wrote her. MAB did a switch on both, Phyllis acting more like Sharon and Sharon acting like a bitchy slut like Phyllis. Go figure.

I'm hopeful as Josh stated Phyllis is going to become the piranha outcast of GC. The only person to step up is Jack....I was and still am a fan of "Pack". MS works much better off of Jack then Nick. Jack isn't a boy scout and can see at times Phyllis's deeds and doesn't jump all righteous. The chemistry is much better with Peter then Joshua...IMHO. Wink Now if Josh does tamper with a story I would love for him to make Summer a "Abbott". That could open up a great story between the Abbotts & Newmans as a family umbrella story. Wink

I don't think Michelle is "after" Joshua, nor do I think she's gay. I think this has to do with the fact that she wanted to be redeemed and be the leading heroine of Y&R. Well, what better place to do it than beside Victor Newman's son. Nicholas as Victor's oldest son, is the logical leading man of the second generation, and I'm sure Michelle knew that. She wants Phyllis to be the new Nikki.

Too bad that there's a little glitch in that plan. Phyllis and Nikki are worlds apart, and it's not gonna end up the way she wants if she insists on trying to stuff herself into shoes that don't fit her.

Yoryla...EXACTLY! Those pumps didn't fit and she is not Nikki Newman. Can see still be mature and have lessons learned from past experiences...absolutely. Jack needs a matriarch for the Abbott family and Phyllis fits the bill because of past to Nick. She and Nikki could cat fight all day long and it would be delicious! Phyllis could still be the deceiving and deceitful Phyllis (not criminal)and cause problems which Phyllis does best. Jack is better fit especially if they are sticking it to Victor & Nikki...let the games begin! Smile

When I wrote how the shoes don't fit, I was actually thinking exactly of Nikki's small Manolo Blahnik pumps and Phyllis with a pair of boots and how they really don't mix - LOL!

I wish MS would see how Phyllis works the best as the bitchy antagonist type. See: Dr. Dorian Lord!

Yoryla...we don't agree on alot but you said a mouthful here. This is indeed what I see going on with MS. She is not and never will be the heroine of Y&R unless she succeeds in getting rid of Sharon Case the way she did Victoria Rowell. That is the only way she will be the show's next heroine. Let me say, she did a superb job of convincing MAB to write her as such but IMO she just can't carry that. MS skill set doesn't lend itself well to playing a heroine.

Being gay isn't damaging, except in the eyes of homophobes. That's not to say that you're homophobic, but if you think the suggestion that MS might be gay is akin to a smear campaign, I do wonder about your thought process.

I don't know enough about the woman to say one way or the other, but I did find the other posters beating around the bush, so to speak, to be humorous.

I like the character of Phyllis. I find MS attractive and if she played for my team, that would be cool, but if she doesn't that's cool, too. It's not like I've got a shot with her either way. Wink

Oh, I guess to be on topic I should say that I don't care about Phick or Shick, but I do understand the fine line some soap actors have to walk when they have more than one popular pairing they're involved with. JM was probably tweeting that more for the fan's benefit than anything. Shippers will cut a bitch.

Katheryn71...My thought process is perfectly intact! I'm as queer as a $3 bill and I never said "being gay is damaging"...I was speaking about fans that causing damage to actor to start vicious rumors. I can care less about if MS is gay or not, do I think she is gay...NO. So if you are so fragile and looking for a political apology and feeling wounded...go bark up another tree sister dear! I don't have time for your pettiness, thank you. Wink

Forest meet trees. I guess even queer three dollar bills can be blind, too. Peace, sister.

Amen Harlee!

Just trashy that fans on this board start gay rumors about cast members they do not know.
Not to mention it's straight pussy-shit by hiding behind a keyboard to do so.
Pathetic.

Agreed. Phyllis and Michelle Stafford is at her best when she is the bitchy antagonist. And being a heroine does not mix with being bitchy, which MS has been currently trying to pull off for almost a year now. It doesn't work. Heroines don't say "bite me" in a soft sweet voice and walk off, heroines stand their with doe eyes and take the crap that is being dished.

Divatude58...I LMAO at that line because that's Phyllis Sommers! I love the catiness between Christine and Phyllis! I like that Christine didn't back away from Phyllis anymore. If they brought back Christine FT there could be lots of story on the canvas for her. Paul, Phyllis, Nina, Michael etc. I never cared for the character of "Cricket" until she matured and has a backbone now, it fits much better on Christine then the righteous girl scout image.

DivaTude, harlee

- Exactly! This is why I love the recent scenes between Phyllis & Christine, because Chris is the one person Phyllis can't act all ladylike with and think she'll get away with it. Christine has seen it all, been along for every crazy stunt Phyllis has pulled and Phyllis knows that. I so love Christine for tearing the innocent mask down from her!

Yoryla...wasn't the scenes between Phyllis & Christine great! When Phyllis said "bite me" in Christine's ear, I thought there is the Phyllis fans know and love. I love if Chris came back with a big story, just to be a thorn in Phyllis's side.

I'm in total agreement that Joshua Morrow had absolutely nothing to apologise for. He spoke about his feelings in regards to the characters of Sharon and Nick belonging together as a couple. He did not insult Stafford or any other actor. He simply spoke about characters and story. I'm in agreement that there are far too many big egos behind the scenes at Y&R which only reflects badly on the show. I hope that Jill Farren Phelps and CBS/Sony will seriously reign in all of this nonsense sooner than later. Sharon and Nick do belong together in my opinion as well.

It would be a mistake for TPTB to not revisit their love story since they are one of the few super couples that are still around on Y&R. So I hope they put Sharon and Nick back together in a very believable, well written, and romantic story. But first TPTB need to rehab Sharon as a character. Enough of writing her as a weak, self destructive, and crazed shoplifting doormat. They need to write Sharon as a very rootworthy heroine with a backbone.

I watched the episode again and the best line of whole episode was when Cricket, Danny, Paul, Nina, Lauren, Michael, Phyllis, Danny, and Phyllis was trying to plant a stiletto in Cricket about "Christine you have slept with every man here you feeling a bit uncomfortable" (paraphrasing) and Lauren chimed in "Well, I had slept with all the men here and I don't feel uncomfortable" Michael "that's nice Lauren". I literally was laughing so hard I almost fell out of my chair. That was SO Lauren! That made my day, and look at all the men standing smiling, especially Paul. Love Love
