Love the one of Michelle Stafford, my all time favorite Y and R actress.
How sad that the people there, aren't smart enough to retain her, no matter what. She has talent and most of the newbies, are definitely lacking that.

Karla Mosley's hair looked better at the Emmys vs what on B&B.... However nice pics, and everybody looking like their having a good time-

@1titanman: That's because she got Sha'na to do her hair. Unlike B&B where Katelyn does not know a thing about ethnic hair...

Stafford will be missed.

I'm not keen to the idea of a recast anytime soon.

I don't think Phelps really has a clue about what's right for the show.

If she did she'd have been able to retain Emme, and now Michelle.

I have a feeling we'll see more vets walk if she's in charge and not willing to negotiate when contracts are up.

I hope the Sony execs are smart enough to start putting the brakes on some of these moves; and I still think Michelle Stafford won't be gone for good.

Here's to Stafford coming aboard to GH! Crown

Loving the pick with Frank and the two Lulus! Emme Rylan looks fabulous.

Why doesn't Karla Mosley's hair look like THIS on the show?

Yoryla-I wish I shared your enthusiasm. No offense but the picture with Julie, FV, and the recast looks forced and uncomfortable. Speaking only for myself, in terms of looking fabulous, Julie carries off her look and outfit with an easy, elegant sense of style whereas the other dress reminds me of something one of my students would wear to her prom. Again, no offense... Innocent

Damn, that Frank Valentini is one handsome man! Not sure where Michelle Stafford could fit on the crowded GH canvas, but move over and make room!

I love seeing actors from different shows together, representing the daytime community that has shrunk so much. Something needs to be done to either change the Emmy qualifications or create a new award for online entertainment.

As a LOYAL Passions viewer I love the picture of Lindsay and Eric

Three pictures of Michelle Stafford with Frank V. and not one with her and any Y&R people? Conspiracy, what conspiracy? I don't see no stinking conspiracy!

Of course, that shot could be there, but after clicking through 36 pages of photos, I lost interest. DC, couldn't you guys at least put two on a page?

To me, Julie Marie Berman had the same look on her face in all of her photos. Why would she be tense with Emme Rylan and Frank V.?

I like Kara Mosley's curls. I do think they could be styled better on the show, but I don't necessarily love the straight look better.

I'll place a bet that Michelle Stafford announces that she's headed to GH as soon as her contract is officially over with Y&R. She had her picture taken with several ABC people at the Emmy Awards. Just a hunch.

Stafford will come aboard as Tracy's secret daughter. Mark my words! GH is going to have to get rid of a couple leading ladies... my prediction is Kelly Sullivan will be out. But even so, will be crowded.

Hmmm I guess if Tracy had a daughter she'd already be looking for her. Maybe she is... ? I do think Stafford will play the real Q heir, one way or another.

Is it possible she could have been switched somehow with Franco at birth? We KNOW Franco is not a real Q since Kiki and Michael are doing an "incest" storyline and of course it will come out they are not actually relatives.

General Hospital's budget must be through the freakin' ROOF!!!! There is no way in hell it isn't!! Vets recurring or not, this is getting outrageous. And its part of the reason why I find it hard to even get into the show.

Meanwhile, Miss Phyllis needs to be recast. My mama always told me one monkey don't stop no show...

Frank is smoking hot! Damn.

I don't know why JMB would look tense around FV or ER since she CHOSE to leave the show. As the poster stated above, one monkey don't stop no show. Smile

Ms. Stafford is so overrated and, IMO, a bad actress. She's so over the top...that sh*t ain't funny. I can't believe that scene she submitted got her a nomination. Those hand gestures are ridiculous. MS's acting was superb in the 90s and more tolerable when she takes the yelling down a notch or two.

This entire year under Josh, Stafford hasn't yelled once. She's fantastic. She's smart enough to make the correct choices.

I wish some of these other actresses would waive their hands and yell once in a while. Use what ya got!

^^ I agree. It is not an attractive photo of her.

I also don't much like that picture of Ms. Stafford; it's all rather immature looking to my mind. Also ... I'm pretty sure that Phyllis has done her fair share of yelling under the new regime plus MS has certainly not curtailed her double line readings all that much. However, she is a good actress and maybe it could be a good thing for her to ply her talents elsewhere.

yojoromo4469 ... that comment above was rather arrogant, nasty and unnecessary don't you think in hindsight?

TEDEW, No, to your question above. That is my opinion, and if you don't like how I feel about the Dylan character, that is my opinion and I believe I am entitled to it.

Actually, you cannot post whatever you feel on this site. I thought personal attacks against posters were off limit.

Stafford sucks! Stafford sucks! She got let go because she can't act her way out of a paper bag Smile

But, she didn't get let go, she left herself. Smile

yojoromo4469 ... actually my comment to you in #27 above was referring to your rather insensitive comment to Dyllan with regard to his comments on the obviously esteemed (self and otherwise) Ms. Stafford. Some here still seem to feel that opinions that don't match other's amount to stupidity. But all are quite valid no matter what.
