On-Air On-Soaps caught up with The Young and the Restless Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) backstage in the press area at the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards last week.  During the conversation, Melody reiterated to fans her comments on twitter, which stem from the fact that the talented soap icon had not received any scripts for months after her last tape day which was April 28th.

Thomas Scott also commented that no one from the series had reached out to her to let her know what was going on with her future with the number one soap. This all came on the heels of a front-burner story which had a boozin’ Nikki finally sent back to rehab!

Meanwhile at the Emmys, Y&R’s  executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell told members of the press regarding Melody’s status with the show, “Melody is phenomenal. Of course she will be with the show again.  She’s in a storyline where she left town but she will be back.  We love Melody.  She’s one of the hearts and souls of Young and the Restless.  Don’t be worried.  She will be back.” However at the time of this interview, Melody still had not gotten any official confirmation that she would be returning and no one had told anything to her, personally.

Michael, what a treat to see and hear Melody and how upset she is over the stall in her story, Nobody has even contacted her. That is outrageous. We are all waiting for her return and to see her and Victor reunited, if that is what is supposed to happen. She looks great, though and you were so compassionate to her, Nice job and what a coup.

From what I can gather, it sounds like MTS is no longer on contract at Y&R. If this is true, she’s in the same position as Tracey Bregmann. Y&R will contact her when they need her. That said. Welcome to 21st Century Corporate America. People are disposable. We’re just cogs in the machine. Respect for the individual means very little. Time and time again, we’ve seen TV executives lie to cast, crew and audience members. Sadly, in this age, people have to get it in through their heads that there is no such thing as company loyalty. It doesn’t matter… Read more »

Michael, thanks for the interview everyone knows I think she should have gotten a nomination and the emmy this year for LEAD ACTRESS 32 years! Some people go to work and do their job and they don’t lobby she is one of them. My next question is how awkward when her husband is working for B&B. How weird! Bring her back as much as I loved Genie Francis on GH I just am not getting her on this show, so bring back Melody!!!

I completely agree, bring back Melody. Genie Francis in this role on Y&R just does not interest me either. Also, we are so tired of Cloe, she should be let go, no interest in her whatsoever, I fast forward when she and Abby come on.

Her story was getting so good with the alcoholism and things… Just think of all the good story that could have been had between Nicki and Diane. I think the cane storyline is unbelievble and not that interesting…

I understand that she is the highest paid actress on the show. Of course, in this day and age, they are going to use her as little as possible. I don’t buy her story entirely. Too many people are unemployed and budget cuts are being made. I like her, I think she’s Great…but I don’t think the show will die without her. Too many stories with too many other working people who make less. I would be fine if Victor joined her…Life Goes On!

I have always loved Melody Thomas Scott, she is a great actress and a true beauty. She and Eric Braeden are pure magic together in front of the camera, in my opinion they have made the show what it has become, they are both amazing stars. I do not understand why the powers that be at Y&R are treating Melody in this disrespectful manor. I did hear however that she has asked for more money per show, don’t know if that is true or not. The wonderful scene that she did at the A. A.meeting on Y&R was first rate… Read more »

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
