This ought to be a page-turner!  The one and only Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) of The Young and the Restless has been a very busy gal, not only appearing on the top-rated soap, but she has been writing her memoir set for release next year!  According to a tweet from her Literary Agent, Dr. Uwe Stender, this will be quite the highly-anticipated life story.

Stender tweeted: “I am BEYOND ecstatic to announce that ‘s memoir will be published next summer!

He added on the upcoming Thomas Scott book, “Star of the #1 daytime drama The Young and The Restless Melody Thomas Scott’s ALWAYS YOUNG AND RESTLESS, a memoir covering her career (and life struggles) from a child actress (i.e. Hitchcock’s Marnie) to become the longest-serving and beloved daytime actress on television in the same role, written with Dana L. Davis.”

Melody confirmed the memoir following up with a tweet to Stender, “Well, I guess the cat is out of the bag now! Can’t wait for all of you to read it! Now you all know what I’ve been up to!”

So, intrigued by what Melody will share about her life and her time on Y&R in her upcoming memoir? Comment below.

I will definitely read it. However, I question the statement that she is the “longest-serving…daytime actress in the same role.” GH and DAYS have been on longer than Y&R. In fact, no disrespect to the wonderful MTS, but Susan Seaforth Hayes started on Days in 1968, Suzanne Roger started on Days in 1973, Deidre Hall on Days since 1976 and Leslie Charleson on GH since 1977. MTS didn’t start on Y&R until 1979. I admire Melody but the PR people have to stop blowing smoke about her, constantly airbrushing her pictures and then spouting misinformation regarding her. It detracts from who she is IMHO.

Yes, knowing her, it will be truthful and no holds barred. Would love to read it.

I don’t know how much “fun” it would be to read while she’s still employed @CBS and Sony… as I’ve always “hated” thee inside joke that you never talk about your show … ie: TPTB know the disgust with WRITING is contentious and that the who’s coming; who’s going; is their “stamp”

nevertheless prior to Y&R is her life. I only ask 1 or 2 or 3 things

1. DO NOT give your life away at every thing Eric Braedon is
2. the writers NEVER truly wrote Nikki as an independent Woman… acknowledge
3.

OH WHATS THE POINT – Nikki never materialized

what can you say? at the very least its satisfying to me that Eric Braedon can’t not acknowledge you either

so this couple disagreed
corporate got in the way
feelings lie dormant

Victor expresses “satisfied”

END OF STORY

I agree. As much as the writers, from time to time tried having Nicki assert herself, she just seemed to be Victor’s wife, 99% of the time. Now with this new medical crisis, which I am assuming is his own, will he fight it with his wife’s help and support, or try and go it alone, as he has always done?

Hallmark Channel Chief Bill Abbott Exits In Aftermath Of Same-Sex Ad Controversy

Looks like there is still fallout from the Hallmark Channel pulling several ads from wedding planner, Zola that centered on a same-sex lesbian couple kissing at their wedding.

Now, Bill Abbott, who has been Crown Media Family Networks president and CEO for the last 11 years, is exiting the company.  The announcement was made today by Mike Perry, president and CEO of Hallmark Cards Inc.

No successor has been named. “I have tremendous confidence in the Crown Media management team and, with this team in place, I will begin a search for Bill’s replacement,” Perry said. “I want to thank Bill for his many years of success and contributions to Crown Media and wish him continued success.”

Prior to the firestorm against the cable outlet for pulling the Zola ads, (after conservative group One Million Moms petitioned to have the ads removed) and the network complied, the company was doing well.

Abbott presided over a period of growth and visibility for Hallmark including: Christmas programming and regular opportunities for seasoned A-list stars that in return attracted viewers and ratings. Bill Abbott’s exit is the latest result of Hallmark’s efforts to quickly turn the page on the bad PR.

Deadline reported that according to people familiar with the internal discussions, many people at the network expressed their preference for restoring the ad quickly, while Abbott went against their wishes and kept it off the air.

Judith Light To Receive Prestigious Honor At GLAAD Media Awards In New York

Another wonderful acknowledgement is coming its way to two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winning actress, Judith Light (Ex-Karen, OLTL).

News on Wednesday has that Light will be honored at the upcoming 31st annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City with the Excellence in Media Award in a ceremony hosted by Lilly Singh. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, March 19th.

l

According to Deadline, who broke the news, the Excellence in Media Award is presented to media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Light joins previous honorees Ava DuVernay, Robert De Niro, Patti LaBelle, Debra Messing, Tyra Banks, Julianne Moore, Glenn Close, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, among others, who have received this prestigious award from the organization.

“Judith Light stood up for and with LGBTQ people when others in media and entertainment refused to speak up, and she has never left our side,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement “When the GLAAD Media Awards first started and was a small event with little visibility, she was one of the few entertainers who would join us in calling for LGBTQ representation, so it is only fitting to now honor her advocacy on what has become the largest LGBTQ stage in the world. From standing alongside LGBTQ people during the AIDS crisis, to fighting for marriage equality, to now uplifting transgender people and issues, Judith advocates with a unique passion and an unending dedication that uplifts.”
