    Welcome Gina! I posted 2-3 months ago she would be perfect for the role since MS would not come back. I loved the way she played her character, Dinah, on Guiding Light. She put as much passion into her work as MS does. This is the best choice of all new/replaced characters to date! Now, all that's left is to bring Ronan back to bring the wrath down with new Phyllis on the heads of Jack, Kelly, Sharon, Nick, and a dozen others! Maybe it will be worth watching more often now. Please bring Ronan back and make he and Phyllis a couple - then everyone could get out of their way!

    Hurry and bring her out of the coma! She is one of my favorite parts!
    Thank you Y&R

    She's good...but where's the auburn hair? HAS TO HAVE RED HAIR; Jack (and others) called Phyllis Red as a nickname.

    MS made me hate the character Phyllis. I think TG will be a fresh of breath air to the role.

    Wow, She is no Phyllis!!! Please tell me you are joking.

    Posted by REDMIDGET at Thursday, May 22 2014 07:54 PM

    Why bring Phyllis back at all. Jack is happy and now we get Phyllis back give me a break, I was loving the soaps without Phyllis.I hate when the writers bring someone in new no one can be Phyllis but Phyllis, She left so lets just move on without Phyllis,Phyllis happy where she is lets leave here there, Im with the last person that post this is a joke, So Im hoping, This has to be a joke, Phyllis is gone and needs to stay gone,
