Quote Embrace: I really appreciate this thread. I miss Michelle Stafford playing the Phyllis role as well. I think it really says something that Y&R is still hoping she will change her mind and decide to come back. They know they had a gem in her. I also like the Sharon character that Sharon Case brings to life as well. I too, love both of the characters these wonderful actresses have portrayed. And I thank you for not comparing them to each other but instead embracing them both. It was my hope that Y&R would have gone in a different direction before Michelle left and allowed these characters to finally become friends.
I too would have loved to see them become friends. I thought so many times over the years that they may have, but it just wasn't written in the cards.....
I love both of these actors and characters. They are so different but the characters they play are so important to the show, and I think, strongly that this show is suffering without Phyllis and with Sharon in such a bad place.
The fans don't want to see this. We want Michelle back and we want Sharon Newman fixed. I know we cant always have it our way, but doesn't it matter that we as the audience care what happens to our favorites? ?) ?)
