Y&R's Melody Thomas Scott on Emmy snub, Nikki hitting the sauce & Nikki's new man!

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.

General Hospital

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
