Scoop! The Young and the Restless
redhead Michelle Stafford
(Phyllis) recently shot a Fox pilot in Memphis. It's an hourlong drama whose working title is Southern Comfort
"You have the exclusive on that, my friend!" Stafford tells TVGuide.com. "The leading lady is Madeleine Stowe
. She plays Charlotte, a Southern belle whose husband is in the Mafia, unbeknownst to her. He gets caught and she basically becomes a Mafia princess. I play her perky, happy best friend, Susan, and I have a twangy accent!"
Other celebs appearing in the pilot include Eric Roberts
and Calvin Klein model Travis Fimmel
, who briefly starred in WB's Tarzan
Stafford left Y&R
once before, back in 1997, to star in Aaron Spelling
's superfun but short-lived nighttime sudser Pacific Palisades
. But the Daytime Emmy winner's fans need not fret just yet about the prospect of her leaving again. Let's all chill
and wait to see if Fox greenlights the pilot to go to series first, OK? (I say that to reassure myself as much you — 'cause I love me some Michelle!)
