Y&R's Melody Thomas Scott On Long Time Co-Star Eric Braeden: "I Know How To Handle Him!"

The Young and the Restless Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) spoke to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan in a great interview with some hilarious and brilliant quotes about being married again on-screen one mo’ time, as part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the CBS Daytime soap opera.

Our favorite part of this was actually in the intro of the piece where Logan related back Nikki’s full name which included all of her former hubby’s to date … Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Newman Chow Sharpe Abbott Newman!

Melody was asked how she has managed to stay on long time co-star Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) good side after all of these years working alongside him creating the star-crossed beloved story of Nikki and Victor’s romance.

Thomas Scott responded by saying, “I ‘m not going to lie and say that being his costar is easy, because it ain’t. But it’s so worth it. And, hey, I can be pretty ornery, too. After working with the guy for 34 years, I know how to handle him. (Laughs) And, the best part is, he doesn’t even know he’s being handled!

So soapers, what do you think of the magic of Nikki and Victor? Are they still the ultimate Y&R couple to root for against all odds?

WOW!!
”Nikki’s full name which included all of her former hubby’s to date … Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Newman Chow Sharpe Abbott Newman!”

It’s ridiculousness to have a woman go through the ‘tragedies’ of 13 marriages.. lol

Y&R is always in the business of tragic marriages and it rarely has new characters so they marry one character off 13 times, now that is poor poor poor intimation for writers It seem that soap is far from being anything ”young and restless’ it’s stale tragic marriages LOL .
But, I watch it anyways 🙂

Actually, Reed is her maiden name, so that makes it only twelve marriages- if that helps.

It was and still is one of the best love stories on the soaps. I just hope this time they will leave the couple alone- like they did with Tom and Alice Horton on Days. It is possible to be happily married and interesting at the same time- so fingers cross this will be the last marriage for both of them-

Marriages never ever last on a soap.. It must be a rule or something to have no marriages last..
However; now, in ‘this’ Niki and Victor marriage, because of their age, it will be their last..

Mike and Nancy had a happy long marriage on Edge of Night. He married her 2 years after the death of his first wife Sara and she had a good relationship with her stepdaughter Lauri Anne. They were married in the early 1960s and stayed together til the show was canceled until the early 1980s. So there a few marriage that did last but it would be a rarity to happen anymore!

I agree, let them stay married now, people think if they stay married it becomes boring, but they can have drama in their lives without having to get divorced..

Adam shouldnt have anything to do with the Newmans no matter what. It shouldnt always take a tragedy to make someone accept you.

Jim, about your Edge of Night comment above- when I was watching that show I was a preteen, so my memory may be fuzzy here, but didn’t the actress who played Nancy leave the show once, and the character died in some kind of boating accident? Then a year or so later when Mike was starting to fall in love with someone else she came back. She was on some kind of island, had lost her memory, something like that. I remember I was watching with my mother when it was revealed Nancy was still alive, it was quite the… Read more »

Never mind- talked to my mother and she says it was some lady named Nicole and not Nancy – she’s 90 and she’s got a better memory than me.

I was never a Victor/Nikki fan. I always rooted for Victor when he was single or married to someone else..anyone other than Nikki who I thought sucked the life out of him. Imo, Hope and Ashley were his best pairings. Both women made him more gentle and human. Nikki just always acted like needy clingy jealous wife. Nothing I found attractive in a woman.

As for Nikki my favorite was when she was married to Jack the first time struggling with her addiction after falling off the horse.

I am liking Nikki and Victor more recently. I would like to see her keep her addiction at bay and have Victor become kinder and gentler in helping Nikki with her illness and overseeing his family. I think Nikki and Victor are better when they concentrate on others together. At this point in their lives I would hope the huge horrible problems would settle down. I would like to see more of Victor and Adam and the eventual breakdown in their war and a better appreciation for the child most like himself. It woould be great to see all the… Read more »

I agree with Mary above ..It was and still is one of the best love stories on the soaps. I just hope this time they will leave the couple alone, Mel and Eris’s chemistry is amazing! Love them together especially now that they have this big family to take care of….

I don’t like Adam and Sharon together…she cheated on him with a Vet for no reason. Adam’s character does not have the personality trait to forgive that type of betrayal..

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m more in love with Victor and Niiki then I am with Tad and Dixie, I’m a 32 year fan of AMC and just a year and a half with Y&R.. You can tell they care about each other in real life and it shows on screen, they have amazing chemistry, I can never get enough of them..

Well, Eric Braeden is my favorite star on Y&R, Period! And for years I loved the Victor Nikki love story. However one of my very favorite storylines was the Victor and Sabrina love affair. In my opinion that was cut way too soon. They were so elegant and glamorous together, a truly Beautiful couple. There was so much chemistry between them, and I was very sad when that beautiful storyline came to a sudden end. I like Melody Thomas Scott very much, but wish that Ashligh and Victor would have gone back together. It does not matter, EB is why… Read more »
