On-Air On-Soaps caught up with The Young and the Restless Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) backstage in the press area at the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards last week. During the conversation, Melody reiterated to fans her comments on twitter, which stem from the fact that the talented soap icon had not received any scripts for months after her last tape day which was April 28th.
Thomas Scott also commented that no one from the series had reached out to her to let her know what was going on with her future with the number one soap. This all came on the heels of a front-burner story which had a boozin’ Nikki finally sent back to rehab!
Meanwhile at the Emmys, Y&R’s executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell told members of the press regarding Melody’s status with the show, “Melody is phenomenal. Of course she will be with the show again. She’s in a storyline where she left town but she will be back. We love Melody. She’s one of the hearts and souls of Young and the Restless. Don’t be worried. She will be back.” However at the time of this interview, Melody still had not gotten any official confirmation that she would be returning and no one had told anything to her, personally.
