Fan favorite and legendary daytime actress, Melody Thomas Scott of The Young and the Restless took to twitter last week to announce to her fans that last week’s airshow ( as of now) had been her last and she has not seen any scripts with her name on it since.
As a follow-up last evening, MTS took to twitter again to elaborate and field some questions from her beloved fan base, who are craving more Nikki Newman! Here is what Melody expressed in her tweets: “OK, to answer various queries: After years long pain from a neck injury, I finally had surgery on 3 discs in neck. That was 12/27/10. I returned to work on Jan 7th (approx) Continued working regularly til 4/28, when I shot what turned out to be my last scene. Had not been told by ANYONE that that was my last scene, day, show, episode, whatever u want to call it. Time passed on. It dawned on me that were no more scripts coming in mail. And here we are. ”
So what is going on here? Is Melody written-off? Are the powers-that-be sending Nikki away to rehab and holding her there for several months until budgetary constraints are lifted? Let us know your thoughts, and if you are going to missing boozing Nikki, as much as we are!
