How fun it is! We all wait for poor Nikki Newman to be pushed to the edge so she will crack open those tiny little hotel room bottles of booze and begin to drink herself into oblivion! And no one does that better then The Young and the Restless‘, Melody Thomas Scott!  Now with Victor marrying her nemesis, Diane, and finding out that Deacon set her up to become a boozy mess along with Meggie, that is enough to drive anyone for a drink…or two… or three…or…

The legendary soap actress caught up with TV Guide and talked about  her shocking Daytime Emmy snub for Lead Actress in the pre-noms, a new man headed into Nikki’s life, and playing Nikki falling apart at the seams. Plus she reveals how she lost some thirty pounds post neck surgery and looks better than ever.  Here are a few excerpts!

Melody on the Daytime Emmy snub:  “There are many reasons why an actor wouldn’t check the box opposite my name on an Emmy ballot! I totally get it! I am many things, but a politician isn’t one of them. I don’t rally. I don’t campaign.  Here it is in a nutshell. My daughter Elizabeth gasped when she heard [about the pre-nom ballot]. “What? You’re not on the list, Mom?” I replied, “Oh, honey, that’s old news. I guess I forgot to tell you. Don’t worry about it.” And then I went into the kitchen to work on Baby Shower Central. (NOTE: her daughter is expecting twins)I’d rather have two angel babies than two angel wings!”

Melody on if Nikki will remain a drunk and manless:  “Well, I don’t mean to tease you… [Laughs] well, actually, yes I do! Deacon may have a little competition coming his way.  There’s going to be a third man in Nikki’s life. I can’t really go into detail or tell you his identity yet but it is very unexpected.”

Melody on an upcoming disturbing episode to her where Nikki lies to her kids and Katherine that she has been drinking: ” I felt horrible! It was like a punch in my stomach. I realized this was a line Nikki has never crossed. She has never deceived her children. She has never sunk to that level. It was a hugely impactful moment for me. And then her best friend, Kay [Jeanne Cooper], is also sniffing around thinking Nikki is drinking, and Nikki is lying to her, too. So it’s all really horrible and really dicey. It’s not looking good for Nikki at all.” (Laughs)

So soapers, who do you think the new man could be in Nikki’s life? Let us know!

I am upset Melody was snubbed. She is more awesome and amazing each year! She has kept me glued to Y&R! I happen to love Nikki away from Victor. Melody looks gorgeous these days too! Ok, I am so looking forward to Deacon getting some competition! I wonder if it is this new guy coming on the show as the veterinarian (ok, I read rumors and spoilers).
Congratulations on her daughter having twins! No way is Melody going to be a (ok, I’m sputtering around like Phyllis on Y&R) grand_____.

They could put Niki with anyone as long as it’s not Victor. Victor is starting to look a lot older and I think Niki should be with someone younger. Only one thing that Niki needs, because she is a sharp woman – get her some good undergarments.

I think the mystery man is Jack too. In Victor’s Christmas episode, Jack and Nikki were married so I’m thinking that was a huge hint of what is to come. Jack would be awesome helping Nikki in her recovery.

That’s an awesome interview! I love how she is so non-chalant about not getting the Emmy nom, but it sucks for her fans because we would love to see her get the accolades that she SO richly deserves for her years long portrayal of Nikki. BTW…. she is looking EXTRA gorgeous these days, now I know why!! Right on Melody….. she is absolutely fit and fabulous at 55!

My guess is Tucker, the actor doesn’t have chemistry with anyone else on the show why not try Nikki.

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.
