The Young And The Restless Spoilers – Michelle Posted A Farewell To Her Friend
Patti Denney, the head of the makeup department who has been working with The Young and the Restless for 42 years retired. Hence, a retirement party and celebration were held for Denney who started working on the show on April 1, 1980.
In light of this, Stafford wrote a lovely farewell tribute on her Instagram account. “Last night we celebrated this gorgeous, amazing, beautiful, exquisite woman @myartbypatti,” She wrote as she went on to share, “I am at a loss for words. This woman means SO much to me. She has been doing my make up at #YR from the beginning. We have gone through so much together. She has had my back. I have had hers. It’s a relationship that I can’t put into words.
Even when I wasn’t on the show we still talked. I couldn’t get out of the make up chair the other day as it was the last time she was doing my make up at work. I couldn’t leave.As an actor you usually go from job to job. People mean a lot to you during that job but you know it will end. On our show it’s very particular. We know we’re going to see that person tomorrow. So many people have been there for so long we have truly become a family. Patti IS my family. Forever. Patti, I will miss you at work but I’m so happy that you are going to be living such a fun life full of new experiences with your incredible Mel! I hope to commission you for a huge painting in my house. I can’t wait to see the new things you create in your life! I love you.”
