VERY fun story with many twists!! Trust me! ❤ — michelle stafford (@TheRealStafford) June 19, 2013 And now some pictures! To show their appreciation for her years of work, the cast and crew brought Michelle some flowers. The MOST beautiful flower arrangement I have ever received! From the incredible women at CBS!

The photo doesn't do it justice! ❤ Them so! pic.twitter.com/TdHLrH2ZvC — michelle stafford (@TheRealStafford) June 20, 2013 That night was Michelle Stafford’s goodbye party (apparently at a place called Fatty’s). Here is Michelle with Christian LeBlanc and Y&R series co-creator Lee Phillip Bell: Look at how lovely! Lee came to my goodbye party last night! pic.twitter.com/Lt8WeyBrWb — michelle stafford (@TheRealStafford) June 21, 2013 And here she is again (note “Fatty’s” sign) except replace Lee Phillip Bell with Billy Miller. According to Michelle's tweet, Christian and Billy hosted the party. What great dudes! I LOVE these two men for giving me an AWESOME party last night!! ❤ pic.twitter.com/8oLqJF2edl — michelle stafford (@TheRealStafford) June 21, 2013 Stafford played Phyllis for 16 years, winning two Daytime Emmy’s in the process. Now, you might have heard the rumours circulating that she has already lined up a job at General Hospital, but given this Vine video, maybe (I hope) she’ll go on to be a professional singer! Best of luck on your future endeavours, Michelle! Daniel Romalotti Returns to Genoa City Photo by Getty BUT WAIT, there’s more! Watch out for the return of Michael Graziadei, who left Y&R earlier this year. On the same week that Michelle Stafford taped her final episode, we learned that Graziadei will be coming back to Genoa City, reprising his role of Daniel Romalotti, Phyllis’s son, at the end of July! The Phyllis family line will continue! _______When is The Young & the Restless on TV?
