The Young and the Restless News: Michelle Stafford Opens Up About Phyllis And Her Plan To Get Rid Of Diane
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Michelle opened up about Phyllis’ plan to get rid of Diane along with Nikki and Ashley. She said, “I’m really glad that they added them in the story, actually. I would do it anyway, but it’s hard to play everybody against you, and when what your character is saying is really logical and other people who are somewhat logical don’t buy it, it’s hard. Luckily, there’s always someone who’s as smart as you and sees what’s really going on. When I heard Nikki and Ashley were going to team up to take Diane down, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s kind of a cute story point. That’s cool.’”
Michelle also made it no secret that she absolutely loved working with both Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Eileen Davidson (Ashley). She said, “I’ve had so much fun working with them. Both she and Eileen are just really so creative and I’m reminded of that when I work with them. They didn’t keep their jobs for over 40 years by luck. Obviously, you don’t have a job that long if you’re crap, and they’re both just so good at what they do and it’s really, really fun.”

Now, as far as why she doesn’t trust Diane, Michelle said it’s because, “People don’t really change their spots. They grow, they mature, they get older and can have some sort of introspection on their life. You can change your ways and stop doing things that hurt people but people are still who they are.”
