Melody Thomas Scott finished with THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS....for now

Tom Degnan also leaving ONE LIFE TO LIVE early
Soaps In Depth has learned that Tom Degnan will be exiting the role of Joey Buchanan this summer. But there is a silver lining in this cloud for Joey and Kelly fans: sources report that Degnan and Gina Tognoni's character will exit the canvas together.

Marcil Giovinazzo Opens Up About Her GH Exit
"I was always 'coming for a visit,'" she tells Soaps In Depth. "I never described it as anything other than a visit. And that's what it is. I always hate leaving. It's always devastating to me. I love it there so much, but I've never, ever made it sound like it wasn't going to have an end. I came for a very specific amount of episodes and a very specific amount of time. Nothing has changed."


  1. I am really confused about the MTS post. Is the inference that she's done playing Nikki? I sort of got that from the headline and story... however, when I read her Tweet, it looked like a re-Tweet that came from Maura West.

    So, I am not sure whether Maura West is done (I know, of course, that she's been let go) or both she and MTS are finished on the show.


  2. Melody wrote that tweet to Maura and another person. Melody taped her last episode and didn't realize it would be her last. She hasn't been contacted ever since and has no idea what her status is, sadly.

  3. Wow, that is AWFUL! I misunderstood.

    How is that possible? How can Sony/CBS/Bell Productions let that happen.

    I am shocked that this story isn't ALL OVER the place.

    Thanks for letting us know! Your blog is great!

  4. It does seem pretty incomprehensible. Nikki has been my favorite Y&R character for 30 years so I personally feel a big void in the show when she's not around.

  5. I first seen MTS on Y&R with her sister, she was just a teenager. I have followed her all these years and it is so sad to hear she is treated this way. Certain people on the soap should always be there and she is definitely one of them. Also disappointed to hear that Maura has been let go, sure love watching her take over the role of Diane and she plays it so well.
