Article: "Dazed" by The New Days of Our Lives

...From the moment alter ego Lacy emerged, Pease shined in one of the most tired plots in the history of daytime. She did her best acting work to date playing three very believable, different, people. Greatly aided by Richard Burgi in the thankless role of Philip Collier, Kim's fiance and Clare's nemesis, Pease's scenes were among the best on the show.

Column: NBC Gossip

Richard Burgi (Philip) has plenty of soap experience, including a one-and-a-half year stint as Chad The Pimp on AW, and short-term roles on As the World Turns, Guiding Light, and Ryan's Hope. "I was also Susan Lucci for a while on All My Children," he teases. "Nobody knew that." Burgi did screen tests last year for AMC (although it wasn't for the role of Erica Kane). But, even though he didn't get the part, there are no hard feelings. Quite the contrary, actually. "I was very grateful because I didn't want to go back to New York," says the L.A.-dwelling actor. "I wouldn't mind going back at some point - I hear All My Children is a great soap. But for whatever reason, it worked out perfectly."

February 2, 1993:

Column: NBC Gossip

While Richard Burgi is having a great time with his new leading lady, Ariana Chase (Kimerbly), he still hasn't forgotten Patsy Pease (ex-Kimberly). Pease says Burgi offered kind words and a friendly ear after she was dismissed from the show. And as far as Burgi's concerned, phoning Pease was the least he could do. "She's very sweet," he says. "I want to support her however I can. I give Patsy my prayers and understanding."
