Melody Thomas Scott: Crisis Averted... For Now

In the new issue of TV Guide, Michael Logan provides an update on the Melody Thomas Scott contract situation with THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.

Word is the soap's budget-slashing brass wanted 30-year vet Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) to take a major pay cut or switch to recurring status. Scott balked at both options and was prepared to exit. Now sources say she'll remain on her terms, for the time being anyway. Y&R co-chief Paul Rauch kinda freaked when I called for an interview about the situation. First he wanted my questions in advance, then he became - according to his rep - "unavailable."

  1. I don't want Melody Thomas Scott to leave, but at the same time I understand where Y&R is coming from. It would be one thing if the producers were going after just her. Jess Walton took a pay cut!! And Jess Walton rocks BTW, nuff said.
