Go Melody! The iconic star of The Young and the Restless took the tabloid the GLOBE to task for their April 7th edition where they report that Melody trashed current executive producer Jill Farren Phelps to none other than Susan Lucci!
There had been rumors started that Y&R was trying to lure Susan to the cast and that Melody told Susan that currently it is not a great place to work! Melody Thomas Scott took to her facebook page to let the truth be known and here is what she has to say below!
MELODY: “Is it possible for the GLOBE to print an entire article with not ONE shred of truth to it? Well, they’ve done it. In their April 7th edition, there is an entire page devoted to absolute lies. It refers to a phone call that I had with Susan Lucci,whom I don’t even know. Sure, over the years we have run into each other at events, ‘Hello, how are you,’ and that’s it. She does not have my phone number, nor I hers. Hey, Globe…There was no phone call!
According to the Globe, I told her that YR isn’t a great place to work these days because of the havoc Jill Farren Phelps has created under her rule. That we are walking on eggshells! In reality, our set has never been as relaxed and copacetic, with a very warm vibe, due to some recent changes made. In my 35 years in Genoa City, there has been only one regime that made us walk on eggshells, and it wasn’t under Jill. Sure,we were warned of the “Wicked Witch” that was blowing our way, but she has been nothing but a great leader, gracious, professional, approachable and a pleasure to work with. They also intimated that I was upset that my husband (who,btw, has a multi-year contract with “The Bold and the Beautiful,”) didn’t get Jill’s position of EP! Utterly ridiculous! Edward is extremely happy at B and B and would never think of switching shows. I’m sure CBS legal would have a few things to say about that,too! And, Brad Bell as well! Don’t get me wrong: If Susan were to come to YR I would welcome her with open arms, just as I would any actor coming to Genoa City. It boggles my mind that a rag could print nothing but falsehoods. Usually,there is a small grain of truth,but not this time! Don’t believe everything you read, kids!”
So what do you think about the Globe’s reporting on this item? And what do you think about what Melody had to say? Proof positive to not believe everything you read!
