In a fantastic new interview out today from TV Guide.com, The Young and the Restless, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) discusses her latest storyline which she is relishing every day!  As fans have witnessed,  Nikki is back to her boozy battle with the bottle, thanks to evil, Meggie (Sean Young). Then, mix in another evil-doer Sean Kanan (Deacon) and the tipsy love of Victor’s Newman’s life has a house of cards that are set to come tumbling down.  Today October 12th,  Melody is also celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary to current B&B producer, Ed Scott! Congrats! Now, here are some juicy excerpts from the new feature:

Melody on what happens when Victor finds out she is hit the sauce: “I can’t reveal it, but let’s just say it’s not a good thing. [Laughs] But it’s so good. Wait till you see what happens! Nikki keeps thinking that if she can just get to the wedding that it’ll solve her drinking problem. But it’s magical thinking, of course. She always thinks that the answer to her problems is to marry Victor.”

Melody on if there will be a romance for Nikki with Deacon Sharpe ( Sean Kanan): ” Ohhhh, I hope so! It would be great if it started out a scam but then Deacon finds that he kinda likes her. Nikki keeps showing up at his seedy motel room and at first she’s shocked. “You live here?” she says. I don’t think Nikki realizes there are a lot of people living like that on the other side of the tracks. [Laughs] Which is where Nikki comes from! She thinks she has a drinking buddy in Deacon, and that he’s getting just as drunk as she is. But he’s really drinking water, not gin.”

I am not fond of the drinking problem for Nikki. I think Deacon is really scamming Sean Young. I think he really wants to help Nikki and and to expose Sean Young as the bitch she is……

Let the bitch fall off the wagon. She blames her relapse on the drama Victoria dealt with due to Deacon. Victoria got in the bed with Deacon with a smile on her face. Nikki’s not far behind. It’s not usual for her the sleep with Victor’s enemies. Now it’s Victoria’s turn. Bottom up!!!

I LOVE MTS!!!!! It’s about time she got some press! How many more years are going to go by without an Emmy nod??? It’s a horrible snub and the Emmy voters should be ashamed of themselves. Who could forget the work she did when Joshua Morrow’s character was presumed dead in a plane crash!? BRILLIANT!! Her portrayal of Nikki has captivated audiences for thirty years on Y&R and she is soooo overdue for some accolades!! We love us some Nikki Newman, especially the one jack-knifed under Deacon’s toilet after a Vodka “Big Gulp” bender!!! Please writers, let Nikki be a… Read more »

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

All My Children

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
