HomeTVThe Stafford ProjectWATCH: The Premiere of Michelle Stafford’s The Stafford Project! (VIDEO) Jamey Giddens August 5, 2013 21 Comments Phyllis Newman might be off to Georgia, for a life of being spoon-fed porridge by her son Daniel (Michael Graziadei) on The Young and the Restless, but the legendary character's portrayer is as viable and fiery as ever. Long live Red. Check out Michelle Stafford in the premiere episode of her insanely-funny new web series, The Stafford Project, after the jump! 21 Responses Cuppa_Coffee August 5, 2013 I liked it! But then again, Michelle is the best Sooooooo realistic with the her little girl picking her nose and the puke thinking he’s got what it takes to “knock her up.” Keep up the good work Log in to Reply pferrando August 5, 2013 I’m sure this project also had some bearing on her decision making when leaving the show. Log in to Reply ChrisGa August 6, 2013 Very promising. Stafford’s talent is unquestionable–she’d probably kill in a “cinema verite” type show like Arrested Development, of which this reminds me a little of. I’ll be following this. Log in to Reply RebeccaJ August 6, 2013 i like Michelle Stafford as much as the next person but ‘insanely funny’?! no, not even close. starring into the camera ala The Office doesnt make something funny. she had one good line with her agent and that was about it. i think it CAN be funny though if they work at it, and im going to cross my fingers for her and this web series. Log in to Reply YR4ever August 6, 2013 Love Michelle, but this show needs work to be considered funny. The opening line was gross, and the Office-esque/Curb Your Enthusiasm style is hardly original. Good luck. I hope this will work out. I’m sure it will! Log in to Reply YR4ever August 6, 2013 Agree! Log in to Reply YR4ever August 6, 2013 Love Michelle, this first show not so much. Overused Office/Curb Your Enthusiasm tactics, and the opening line of the show was gross. Class it up a bit! Stafford is too talented to settle. Log in to Reply shirls429 August 6, 2013 Watched the Michelle Stafford Project and it was very funny and will definitely stay tuned:) Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon August 6, 2013 I hope things work out for her. I loved the line: “There’s no more of you being the mother to a twenty-year old that was just born last month.” A bit of an exaggeration, but true. Log in to Reply sillytee August 6, 2013 it was cute. i liked it..her daughter is adorbs Log in to Reply reggyreg August 6, 2013 It was pretty funny. I mean it was not insanely funny. I do hope it works for her though. I will be tuning in again. Log in to Reply yojoromo4469 August 6, 2013 I love Michelle and it was okay, but not XLNT. I was disappointed in the jerkiness of the camera. Log in to Reply Yoryla August 6, 2013 I commend her for keeping busy and not shutting out from the industry, but I have to honestly say I’m not really interested in these kinds of things, web series, and the “Office” style of shooting. It was nice, but I’ll wait to see later episodes to see if there’s really something here. Log in to Reply Ms 45 August 6, 2013 Hopefully, future episodes will be better because this one was mildly amusing at best. Agree with those who find the format played out. Log in to Reply Cornfed August 6, 2013 Let it be said the “no laugh track” thang was done way before AD or The Office (um, Sex in the City ring a bell? Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman? LOL) I liked this tho, Michelle was sorta the comic foil for the producer pitching the show. The writing was actually WAY better and less awkward/amateurish than i was expecting. I’d watch more of this. Her daughter (and her name!) are adorable. I think there were a couple two, three haters on this thread but i applaud Michelle in wasting no time. Btw, she’s GORGEOUS in this too! IMO Log in to Reply bobbyew August 7, 2013 Congrats Michelle I thought it was really cute. Its the way Hollywood really operates. Log in to Reply RebeccaJ August 7, 2013 I think one problem some ppl might have with this is not knowing Michelle’s surrogacy backstory. If I hadn’t just read an old interview, I would have never known what she was talking about when she discussed her surrogate in the car. The writers sort of dropped right into the middle of her life, and it might be confusing for some ppl who don’t know her story that well. And just because someone doesn’t love something, that doesn’t mean they HATE it. Log in to Reply pferrando August 7, 2013 I’m probably one of Stafford’s biggest fans…on YR though. I also don’t see myself watching this. I hate the BB storyline and their web “series”. There comes a time when you need to get a break from all the media we have available. Too much commitment!

Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon August 7, 2013 If every episode is posted here on DC, then I’ll definitely watch. Otherwise….what pferrando said.

Too much commitment![/quote] What an awesome statement to make Pferrando, i couldn’t have said it better myself. I try to multi-task with the best of ‘em, but then eventually you end up giving 50% of yourself to everything you do — or 25%! — which sorta negates the whole point. After a long workday i need to UN-plug, not plug IN!! That being said, everyone’s lifestyle is different i guess, no judgments… 0:) Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
