After delivering another fantastic performance on last week’s episode of The Young and the Restless, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) tweeted that as of now, she is done at Y&R as she has not received any further scripts.
Melody tweeted, ”Don’t know if or when I’ll be shooting again. This week’s air shows were my last, until someone determines otherwise. There are no negotiation problems that I know of. Just no scripts for the last month. Believe me, I’d love to be working every day!”
Then CBS Soaps In Depth reported, that the reason for the fan favorite’s absence from the screen in the coming weeks is a budget issue. Could this be why Maura West was let-go and Melody is on a hiatus from the series? Seems like it!
