However, after two Emmys and two Soap Opera Digest awards, she left after sixteen years but Phyllis made her return in June 2019.


Tired Of Attacks

Michelle Stafford shared to her Instagram, “I am going to be posting this and then I will be disappearing for a while…”  “I’ll tell you why, in a nutshell. Because of posting something, I get attacked for wearing a mask. Moreover for not wearing it or wearing it wrong…or whatever. If I don’t post enough I get attacked because of not using the right hashtag or I get attacked. Lastly, if I don’t respond to somebody in a timely manner, I get attacked. Hell, I may get attacked for this post.

“Frankly, IG isn’t really so much fun anymore,” the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning actress continues, “The majority of you are all filled with beauty. During this incredibly challenging time and I love you. It’s been challenging for every single one of us. Having met with some new challenges in the last few days. Ya know, family first.”

“I am just a bit vulnerable at the moment and really don’t understand attacks of any kind to somebody one doesn’t know,” adds Stafford, noting she’s not taking a total break from social media. “I will still be doing my SKIN NATION SUNDAY every Sunday, as it is a very positive group!! If you are positive… come by (Link in bio👆🏻) But in the words of Robin [Williams]… BE KIND ALWAYS. ❤️ I love all of you GOOD people… STAY HEALTHY and watch #YR WE’RE BACK! ❤️.”
