The Young and the Restless Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) just was in major cahoots with her husband, the mighty Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) on recent episodes of the CBS daytime drama series.
In fact, Nikki helped reunite Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) with the on-the-run husband Adam (formerly, Justin Hartley) shortly before his “death”, and assisted Victor in his attempt to send his son, wife, and his grandson away to start a new life somewhere else.
Now, Nikki’s son, Dylan (Steve Burton) is on the case to implicate Victor in Adam’s “death” and getaway. But Nikki visited her son and informed him that if he tries to put Victor behind bars, then he will have to put his mother behind bars, too. Which are you going to chose to do? On-Air On-Soaps caught up with Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, at last week’s Y&R 11,o0oth episode on set celebration at CBS Television City. During our chat, Melody expressed her enthuiasm of this new “covert” Nikki helping the man she loves!
Melody related on Nikki helping Chelsea reunite with Adam: “Wasn’t it great when you found out Nikki was in on it?” She went on to say, “That’s new for her (Nikki) … she’s usually naked, or she’s drunk, or she’s cult member, but she’s not really covert. I do like her like this, and I hope there is more to come.” Speaking of the end of the line for Adam as played by the exited Justin Hartley, Thomas Scott shared: “I love and adore Justin Hartley … and, if I were younger (laughs) …. no, he just got engaged! (Laughs). But I do love him, and he is so funny. Justin is such a wonderful actor.”
As to what the future drama will come the way of Nikki Newman, Melody related: “I had a very good chance with Mal Young, our new EP who I adore. He has been here like ten minutes it seems, but he already understands this show very well. He’s been watching it for years In England, and he knows what this show is suppose to be about. Mal is starting to make changes to correct some things that have gone on over the years. I am just putting my trust in Mal. I am not one to tell the writers what to do, and never have been. I hope Nikki does become involved, in perhaps, more of Victor’s shennigans. I think that would be fun … being partners in crime with him.”
For Y&R’s 11K celebration, Melody acknowledged that none of this would even be possible without the fans of the enduring series: “Without their support, we would not be celebrating another milestone of this incredible show. Thank you, Bill and Lee Bell (Co-Creators, Y&R)! But it’s the continued support of the fans that keep us here, and we so appreciate it, and we are very blessed.”
