In a fantastic new interview out today from TV Guide.com, The Young and the Restless, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) discusses her latest storyline which she is relishing every day!  As fans have witnessed,  Nikki is back to her boozy battle with the bottle, thanks to evil, Meggie (Sean Young). Then, mix in another evil-doer Sean Kanan (Deacon) and the tipsy love of Victor’s Newman’s life has a house of cards that are set to come tumbling down.  Today October 12th,  Melody is also celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary to current B&B producer, Ed Scott! Congrats! Now, here are some juicy excerpts from the new feature:

Melody on what happens when Victor finds out she is hit the sauce: “I can’t reveal it, but let’s just say it’s not a good thing. [Laughs] But it’s so good. Wait till you see what happens! Nikki keeps thinking that if she can just get to the wedding that it’ll solve her drinking problem. But it’s magical thinking, of course. She always thinks that the answer to her problems is to marry Victor.”

Melody on if there will be a romance for Nikki with Deacon Sharpe ( Sean Kanan): ” Ohhhh, I hope so! It would be great if it started out a scam but then Deacon finds that he kinda likes her. Nikki keeps showing up at his seedy motel room and at first she’s shocked. “You live here?” she says. I don’t think Nikki realizes there are a lot of people living like that on the other side of the tracks. [Laughs] Which is where Nikki comes from! She thinks she has a drinking buddy in Deacon, and that he’s getting just as drunk as she is. But he’s really drinking water, not gin.”

    I am not fond of the drinking problem for Nikki. I think Deacon is really scamming Sean Young. I think he really wants to help Nikki and and to expose Sean Young as the bitch she is……

    Let the bitch fall off the wagon. She blames her relapse on the drama Victoria dealt with due to Deacon. Victoria got in the bed with Deacon with a smile on her face. Nikki’s not far behind. It’s not usual for her the sleep with Victor’s enemies. Now it’s Victoria’s turn. Bottom up!!!

    I LOVE MTS!!!!! It’s about time she got some press! How many more years are going to go by without an Emmy nod??? It’s a horrible snub and the Emmy voters should be ashamed of themselves. Who could forget the work she did when Joshua Morrow’s character was presumed dead in a plane crash!? BRILLIANT!! Her portrayal of Nikki has captivated audiences for thirty years on Y&R and she is soooo overdue for some accolades!! We love us some Nikki Newman, especially the one jack-knifed under Deacon’s toilet after a Vodka “Big Gulp” bender!!! Please writers, let Nikki be a devastated drunk a little while longer…. it’s endlessly entertaining!!! :)

    Too painful to watch having been married to an alcoholic.
