Melody Thomas Scott’s 40th Anniversary With The Young and the Restless Celebration (Photos)

This has been an event-filled and exciting week for The Young and the Restless Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman).  On Wednesday February 20th, the day of her 40th anniversary with the series, Y&R hosted a very special gathering in her honor at Y&R’s soundstage 41 at CBS Television City.

As far as milestone events go, this one was one of the most highly-attended and high-profile one in recent memory.  Not only were many of Melody’s castmates present, but also many former ones, dear friends,  family (even some of her adorable young grandchildren), executives, press. and other actresses from the genre, who all came to honor Melody on this remarkable accomplishment – playing a lead character for 40 years on a daytime drama series.

The celebration was filled with emotional and humorous stories and moments from the speakers: Eric Braeden (Victor), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Joshua Morrow (Nick), who read a poem he wrote instead of a rap he might have done – all representing the Newman clan. Another speaker was Peter Bergman (Jack), representing the Abbott clan, and one of Melody’s enduring scene-partners and co-stars.  Christian LeBlanc (Michael) introduced the speakers and the clip package honoring the iconic Y&R star.

Sony executive, Steve Kent, CBS Daytime executive, Angelica McDaniel, and Brad Bell, head writer and EP of The Bold and the Beautiful, who spoke on behalf of the Bell family, also saluted Melody.  In addition, Melody’s longtime husband, producer Ed Scott, surprised Melody by speaking and introducing one of their dear friends to those in attendance who spoke to the realness of Melody.

When she finally addressed those in attendances after their kudos, Melody gave many special shout-outs and was quite emotional when speaking of her early childhood and how Y&R has become a family to her and a place where she belonged.

Later, photos were taken with the exquisite cake which was in the form of crossword puzzle, Melody’s idea, and executed by the talented folks at the Hansen’s Bakery.

Michael Fairman TV was present at the proceedings and will have a follow-up feature with thoughts from many of the casts on Melody’s accomplishment in the days to come.  For now, take a look at some of the images from the event with our captions in the photo gallery below.

The Young and the Restless Fan Event 2019 Photos, Tidbits & Teases

On Sunday, The Young and the Restless hosted their every two-year fan event for their die-hard faithfuls and beloved fans who came from across the globe and the U.S.  Fans representing Australia, Canada, France, and Switzerland showed the depth of how Y&R has reached a worldwide audience as well as domestically.

Presiding over the cast introductions were Daniel Goddard and Melissa Ordway.  Several tidbits were announced from the stage as well including that: Melissa Claire Egan’s first airdate back as Chelsea is set for this Friday on the June 28th episode of the CBS sudser.

Jess Walton revealed to the audience that though she took July off, she will be back in August for a run of shows meaning that viewers will see a lot more of Jill Foster Abbott in the months to come. In addition, Jess said that Daniel Goddard mentioned that her jacket reminded him of the Sound of Music, which provided a laugh for the crowd.

Tammy Diamond was one lucky fan when her name was called from the stage as the winner of the raffle that has the winner getting a Y&R character named after them, or mention in an upcoming script.

Not in attendance were Marla Adams who was dealing with a health issue, but Beth Maitland said she had a message from her on-screen mother to thank everyone for their support of the Alzheimer’s storyline on Y&R.  Jason Thompson, Amelia Heinle, Joshua Morrow and Tracey E. Bregman all had prior commitments and could not attend the event, but everyone else from the cast was there and the fans were thrilled to see them up close and personal,

In an emotional moment, Doug Davidson thanked the fans for willing him back to the show and back on-contract. Laurelee Bell also thanked the fans for if it were not for them, none of them, nor the show would still be on the air.

When Melody Thomas Scott and Eric Braeden took the stage to address the crowd, Braeden said that while Victor is having health issues on-air, he is just fine squelching any rumors. The iconic duo also noted that they were very happy with the regime change of EP Tony Morina and head writer, Josh Griffith leading Genoa City right now.

In a fun moment, Sharon Case took to the stage with her on-screen love interests, Mark Grossman and Jordi Vilasuso, but the trio found themselves auctioning off “Shick” scripts to the winners!

Kate Linder got into the audience as the fan event auctioned off a set visit to Y&R, and as it turned out, two fans won set visits each bidding $5000 for the opportunity.
