Rumors of Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott, "The Young and the Restless") joining the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" have been out there almost as long as rumors of Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis Summers, "Y&R") joining the daytime drama series had been, but sometimes rumors turn out to have major truth to them, especially with Stafford recently joining the cast in the contract role of Nina Clay. Earlier this evening, TV Guide's Michael Logan tweeted, "Billy Miller. General Hospital. Done deal? This is what I'm hearing."
Famous for her red hair, Phyllis Summers on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is about to get a new face. As previously reported, Gina Tognoni ("Guiding Light," "One Life to Live") is set to take on the role previously portrayed by Michelle Stafford, who is now appearing on ABC's "General Hospital." For fans wondering if Tognoni will be bringing back the fiery red look, the actress recently tweeted a response using an interesting hair quote/factoid.
As previously reported, Michelle Stafford is returning to daytime on Tuesday, June 3 playing a new character on a soap not named "The Young and the Restless," where she played Phyllis Summers off and on for 16 years.In a newly released promo for ABC's "General Hospital," where she'll portray the contract role of Nina Clay, Stafford is seen in character proclaiming, "After 20 years, I'm back to reclaim my life. My family betrayed me, my husband deserted me, but love forgives all... or does it?"
Earlier this month fans got their first glimpse of Michelle Stafford on a daytime soap not named "The Young and the Restless." In a twist of fate, it was revealed that Stafford went from playing a comatose Phyllis Summers on "Y&R" last year to newly awakened coma patient Nina Clay on "GH."

Fans hoping to see Michelle Stafford make a grand return to “The Young as the Restless” as Phyllis have a bitter pill to swallow: With the actress now on contract as “General Hospital’s” Nina, it seems the CBS sudser she formerly called home has decided to move on!
As previously reported, Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis Summers, "The Young and the Restless") has joined the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" as the not so comatose Nina Clay, Silas' (Michael Easton) until recently thought to be dead wife. With ABC promising fans that the truth surrounding Nina’s mysterious circumstances will reveal itself in the weeks and months to come, as her tangled web of family history starts to unravel, the network is providing viewers with a snippet of Stafford's debut in case they missed it when it aired on Thursday, May 1.
She departed CBS' "The Young and the Restless" last year with her character Phyllis Summers in a coma, and now Michelle Stafford has returned to daytime with a new role on "General Hospital" as the comatose Nina Clay. An ironic character choice for sure, but ABC promises fans that the truth surrounding Nina's mysterious circumstances will reveal itself in the weeks and months to come, as her tangled web of family history starts to unravel. But until then fans are left wondering how the show managed to keep such a reveal so secret and how it all actually came together.
