More good news for Nikki Newman and long suffering Y&R fans who are clamoring for their favorite flawed heroine to get back on to the Genoa City canvas … pronto!  In an interview with EW.com, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) revealed that her new deal with the series is actually for three years, giving hope to her and the show in general!

Melody revealed, “I was thrilled to hear it was three years. That means they are thinking very positively about the state of everything. That’s great they are.”

The talented actress and long time Y&R staple also said via her Twitter account that she owes a lot of her ending back on the soap with a new contract to her legions of fans! Melody stated, ”If fans had not stepped up, I would not have a job today. I’m so grateful.”

And as far as if we will see our favorite boozy socialite still battling the bottle upon her return to GC in late November?  All Melody could say was something we all love to hear! I love Nikki drinking!” Scott said. “I like it as an actor. It’s much more fun, and everybody seems to prefer a drunk Nikki.”   So stay tuned!

Not to be a pest but doesn’t that prove that she lied when she earlier started to complain on Twitter about her lack of screentime but said it had nothing to do with difficult contract negotiations and the production company was just being rude to her? Hmmmm

AWESOME news! Y&R is MTS’s soap. I have become so concerned by the current Y&R regime’s patterns of stunt casting, rewriting history and ignoring the show’s prior excellence in delivering beautiful character-driven drama. Note to Y&R producers/writers: stop bringing on big-name actors and shoving characters in our faces that we don’t care about, and stop, and I mean stop now, with all this plot-driven story that insults our intelligence. Note to Sony: do start respecting the people who work at Y&R and those who have given this show their lives for decades. Dear Sony, these people make the money for Sony and CBS, so start showing so a little respect.

I am thrilled to bits Melody will be back on the show soon.
But Judas Priest – Don’t put her back with Victor….it’s sooo done and doner.
I’d like her to come back and take the “mustache” to task for continually interfering in Victoria’s life.
And find her a new love interest.

I don’t want to see a drunk Nikki – Enuf already!!! I want to see her with a backbone and starting a life for herself and not focusing on the lives of her GROWN children. Y&R has not been the same without her and Victor maybe her soul-mate, but in the end he always disappoints her. The character deserves better.

I like Melody Thomas Scott very much, and while I think that she is a talented actress, I truly cannot believe or understand why she should be making double the amount of money on Y&R that Eric Braeden makes. Melody is a good actress, and is a true beauty,and she is an important element to the success of the show, however Mr. Eric Braeden is an absolutely gifted, great actor, he stands alone as one of the best actors ever. How is it that an actor of his stature would be making less money? Without Eric Breaden Y&R would not have become the #1 soap, and because of him the show has maintained that status. If any one person on Y&R should be making more money than anyone, it should be Eric Braeden.

I absolutely agree Victor, Kay C. & Nikki makes this show!!

I remember when they hired that actress whose character rescued Nick after the plane crash. Her contract was for three years too. She didn’t last one year.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
