The just released fourth installment of Michelle Stafford’s, web series, The Stafford Project is probably the best episode thus far of them all! And it’s hard to choose when each of the three previous episodes have all been terrific!
However, the two-Daytime Emmy winner and former star of The Young and the Restless, really struck gold here mining moments from her true life story of her struggles to become pregnant via IVF, and the toll the hormone therapy and her desire to have a child took on her personal and professional life.
In the episode titled, “White Secret”, every woman “Michelle” encounters is pregnant as she prepares to shoot a television commercial with another one of the stars of America’s favorite soap opera! Guest star, Kelly Preston plays the other actress doing a commercial with “Michelle” for the perfume … “White Secret”.
Preston turns in a tour de force performance as a completely self-centered and annoying actress, who tells “Michelle” during their perfume commercial shoot that she is pregnant also! And, that really sets the stage for some of the best moments in the episode. Stafford proves once again that she is so adept in her craft! She can make us laugh or cry, and make us feel her uneasiness in these amped up surreal sort of life experiences!
Kudos to the creative team of Stafford, Paige Long, and Paige Dorian! This is one we have already watched over and over again! Watch The Stafford Project episode 4 “White Secret” after the jump, and let us know what you thought of it!
