10 November 13th, 2013 Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott and Jess Walton CBS Connect Chat! Nikki A Mud Wrestler? & Other Tidbits – Watch The Video!


Yesterday, in a very lively and revealing CBS Connect video chat with two of the most popular stars of The Young and the Restless, fans were able to participate and ask questions to the duo in live time!  The duo of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Jess Walton (Jill) scrolled through questions and picked many of them and gave some very forthright answers!

We learned some very interesting tidbits! 1) John Conboy former EP of Y&R wanted Nikki to be a mud-wrestler at first.  It was nixed by the network, when they said Nikki can be a stripper but not a mud wrestler! 2)  Jess really feels a very deep connection with Daniel Goddard (Cane) almost like her real-life son, and loved the energy Bryton James (Devon) delivered to her during Katherine’s memorial when Jill addressed the attendees with her speech. 3) Doug Davidson (Paul) used to have a problem with memorizing his lines!

And the above is just a sample of what these two fascinating women had to say! Watch the chat after the jump with the banter and repartee between Mel and Jess!  Let us know what your favorite moment from the chat was!

    This was so boring, it was laughable.

    I hate the way Nikki walks around judging poor Sharon. Victor also. I hope Sharon is happy with Nick or Adam and stick it to Niiki and Victor. I hope Jill and Jack get victor for everything he has


    Patrick replied

    excellent post!

    i’m so over… Victor… and if the writers continue to write Nikki… their way…

    it’s a moot point… to even bother saving… victor and nikki…. what for?

    Sharon doesn’t deserve their altruistic behavior….

    Sharon… PLEASE… for the love of God, (writers’) save Sharon… right the wrong – for Y&R to survive… reconciling Sharon and Adam…is the only way.

    I too hope… Jill and Jack… “MIA” Victor… he’s just done… enuf: to bore the audience… and at this point… who cares

    it’s rather sad… to see two original “women” who persevered.. throughout the production teams… to wait for… the comeuppance the men of genoa city deserve… at taking over Genoa City…. will this happen….

    reason I don’t watch

    Very’ fun… like both of these actresses! It’s always fun to see what they are like and how they think. Have to say Jess was better at quickly thinking of examples and answers. Melody was more thoughtful and reserved. They were good together for this segment.


    Patrick replied

    Melody was more thoughtful and reserved.

    which speaks volumes… i often think… MTS… is a YES person… ultimately… her vague answers… “well… the chemistry is there”

    and for her to always come up with one reason or another… as to why her character Nikki… saddlebags herself; joined at the hip Victor… god! how dull and boring…

    Nikki… you and Jill… have the fight… fiesty… no holds barred… powerful…

    what a shame… it’s always power struggle for the newman/abbott empires.

    same old same old

    Love them both, and it’s interesting to see a lot of them in their on screen characters. I HOPE that Jess hinting about an upcoming story means we’ll see her more. I just read elsewhere that Tristan R. is coming back, so that may be what she’s referring to. I thought they both looked great and seem to be really down to earth ladies, who actually enjoy one another.

    So much history there! 34 and 28 years each on the show!!!

    Love them both. What a wonderful interview!


  7. Linda Wiggins says:

    Hi – over the past months I have noticed that Jess has lost an incrediable amount of weight. I was wondering if you would share that piece of information. I am Jess’ age exactly and would like to know her secret.l
