Young & Restless' Michelle Stafford Sets the Record Straight: 'You Can Throw Your Hate Somewhere Else'
"It is just a kind of creative suicide."
Characters do not come a lot more outrageous than in The Young and the Restless' Phyllis.
She has crashed weddings, committed crimes, and broken hearts over the years.
However, the one thing she has not done is jump into the body of portrayer Michelle Stafford like something out of a science-fiction movie (or, if we are being honest, a lousy soap plot).
While most people are fully aware that the two are separate entities, some viewers occasionally forget that distinction and decide to blame one for the actions of the other.
This is why Stafford thought it might be helpful to, well, clear things up.
"I would like to introduce myself to some of you folks," she said to Twitter followers.
"My name is Michelle Stafford. It is not Phyllis Summers."
"That is a character I play."
"I am not responsible for that character's actions."
"So you can throw your hate somewhere else; God bless!"
