Nina Slaps Slutty Phyllis Silly on The Young and the Restless!


Nina (Tricia Cast) got all up in Phyllis’ (Michelle Stafford) business, saying the idea of Phyllis sleeping with Ronan (Jeff Branson) was appalling. Nina verbally trampled Red with her indignation over a married woman publicly crowing about having an affair.

Never one to back down from a fight, Phyllis demanded to know if Nina had forgotten how Chance (John Driscoll) came into the world.  When Phyllis started counting off the ways Nina has been a bad mother, Nina hauled off and slapped the woman her son has fallen for.

Luckily for Phyllis, Nina got a call and told the person on the other line she wasn’t busy, just taking out the trash.

Please oh please The Young and the Restless, stick a fork in Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Phyllis. We need a legitimate reason more Nina vs. Phyllis, and "Phonan" could be it! If you do, I might forgive you for axing Marcy Rylan.

At the police station, Nina asked her son why he’d endanger his career and ruin his reputation by having such a dangerous liaison.

Meanwhile, Lauren (Tracey Bregman) tried to talk sense into her wild-eyed friend.

After the juicy Nina vs. Phyllis scenes, did anything else on Thursday’s Y&R matter? Not as far as I’m concerned.  Relive the wonderful scene below!

    One scene does not a show make, and yesterday’s ep was just as much a snooze-fest as anything else cranked out during MAB’s horrific reign.

    Just waiting patiently for this shizz to end and hopefully there will be more character-axing down the road – this cast is still way over-bloated!!

    I actually have been liking the show as of late. But that has been the case the entire time under MAB. Sometimes the show/writing worked, other times it did not. Very uneven, although this past year I still say was better than 2011.

    Let’s see what Josh and Jill can do.

    I know people will bash just because it’s Y&R but regardless of the boring other story playing w\Paul, not only this scene saved the show it made Y&R enjoyable. So more power to Nina! She alone made it a GOOD episode. The eppy begfore was great continuing from a the select group of core of actors. When you put that group of Danny, Lauren, Phyllis, Christine, Michael, Paul, Nina intermixing episodes it’s a BLAST!

    That was the power youth group of the ’80s…add some Traci and you have one excellent soap opera! To me this is more like the Phyllis I recognize when she first appeared…vindicative, bullish, manic Phyllis. Reacting instead of planning. She isn’t a heroine, a REDHAIRED, temper flying, shoots from the hip first, thinks about consequences later…how Bill wrote and conceived her.

    Can’t wait for Josh to continue this story…Josh wake up Nina vs. Phyllis is a winner!

    Have always loved Nina and more in love with her now. My jaw even hurts from the slap heard ’round the world! Love Big Red/Brown but these two just have sparks. What a turn around for Lauren to be breaking up a fight.

    I agree, bring Traci back and have the two writers collaborate on something or at least meet.

    Since it sounds like the Abbotts are being expanded/refocused, why not bring Traci back? I love her scenes with Jack, and she always calms the scenes down when she’s in them. There would be a lot of story to tell with her. And considering she’s been out of town, there’s backstory there. Maybe she knows where Dru is? :-)

    (I liked Sharon’s mention of her the other day…I just wonder if?….)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just kept watching the same 5 seconds of that clip showing the slap over and over.

    Somehow life just got a little bit better.

    After five years of the one-sided, half-assed Phyllis/Sharon rivalry–which always has exactly one outcome, that of bulldozer Phyllis demolishing weak ass Sharon–we finally get someone who’s not only a match for Red but can get down on her level and give her that special kind of hoe check that’s been a long time coming. THIS is the Nina that I love and miss; the old-school, from-the-streets hellcat, not the whining-about-her-sons or holding-Paul’s-hand character that’s only trotted out to prop up far less interesting characters(i.e.Chance). More of this Nina please(and while we’re at it, yes, we do indeed need more Traci in our lives).

    I will agree the closure of MAB some parts are ok, and other you all know where they can go… I agree that when they had Paul, Lauren, Cricket, Nina, Danny brought back the good ole days of Y&R blast from the past. Along with Katherine in the mix too!

    As for Nina going in on Phyllis; it was the best thing about Y&R in a long time. One thing about Phyllis she’s so jealous of these women. She always hated Christine and the same goes for Sharon. She taken these women’s men and then she always plays the victim role. I mean when Daniel told her about herself; she once again played the victim. I know everybody can’t stand Cricket for always playing the saint, but Cricket being a hoe lately with Danny and Nick last year.

    as Jillian would say “Phyllis got hoe checked by Nina” and it was epic! Nina is the original #1 stunna and she didn’t care who your were, but she would cut you up to shreds!

    Instead of pitting Michelle Stafford against substandard actresses like Yvonne Zimaless and Amelia Heinous, they should have pit her against Tricia Cast!! Tricia NEVER fails to deliver. She’s a strong actress. Phyllis needs to go toe to toe with a woman who has REAL fire in her belly.

    Hell, even though Sharon Case is a good actress, it’s boring for me to even see SharHo versus SyPhyllis!!

    I only have ONE question, why didn’t Nina and Phyllis share more scenes in the 90s? And why has it taken so long for the writers to put them in each other’s orbits? These scenes were spectacular. I want to see these two duke it out more often!!

    That part that had me cracking up was when Phyllis was acting like she was going to do something after Nina gave her that ho check hood slap. Nina was on the phone looking at her like “Bitch please” and Lauren was holding Phyllis back like ‘Girl, I’m saving your life. You don’t want that.” Nina’s from the street and I do mean FROM THE STREET. Let’s not forget the character was discovered homeless and living on the streets. She, Drusilla, and Queen Jill Foster Chancellor Abbott are the original hood girls done good. They are not to be trifled with.

    This scene has to be top 10 for daytime in 2012. It HAS to be. It was spectactular. I LITERALLY heard the people in the apartment next door to me cheer when it happened. LOL. And that’s no lie.

    I’m sorry, but I’ve been enjoying the hell out of Y&R this week…

    OK I haven’t watched this show in months but I’m tuning in to catch this storyline; I loathe Jill Phelps but even she can’t keep me from loving me some Nina and since I’ve never cared for Phyllis or how she was written under MAB this is worth seeing.

    ChrisGa I agree with your comment wholeheartedly.
    luverica co-sign!

    Thanks for the re-cap!

    That scene and slap was a very good high point in recent memory. Unfortunately it’s not going to do anything to make Phyllis realize she needs to stop acting like a complete idiot about everything in her life.

    Sharon … I really liked the temporary strength and resolve to stand up against all those against her, plus she looked great in her Vulcan wardrobe with her hair swept up. Just hated all the hypocrisy surrounding her, especially two face Avery beaming like a Bonita Granville having just tattled on someone.

    Nick … why was he so very ready to let it all jump out when Avery seductively touched his hand. Avery backed down but that won’t last for long.

    Nina slapped the shit out of Phyllis. I LOVED it! I also agree that when Nina was on that phone she did look at Phyllis like “Bitch please, you do not want any of this.” Y&R rocked this week!
