Y&R's Melody Thomas Scott on Why She Joined Twitter: "I Can Tell The Truth In My Own Words"



The Young and the Restless leading lady Melody Thomas Scott has been utilizing social media to set the record straight about her employment status with daytime's No. 1 soap opera. When I spoke with Thomas Scott on the Daytime Emmy red carpet on June 19, I asked her to weigh in on all the rumors that have been spread about her status at Y&R. 

"I don't really even recall what was said," Thomas Scott stated about published reports about her contract issues with the series. "I've recently joined Twitter because I can tell the truth in my own words. So nobody can mess with that. So all I can do is tell the truth and keep fans abreast of what is really going on. Unfortunately there is no change. Still working it out. I think I've said enough on it. Until someone says to me, 'We want to work on this' things remain the same."

Thomas Scott also voiced how touched she is that her legion of fans have rallied to her defense and have been campaigning to get her back on the show.

"I think it's really moving and I'm deeply touched. Bless their hearts."

Editor's Note: Since the time this interview was conducted, Thomas Scott has informed her fans via Twitter that she and the brass at Y&R are once again in talks. Thank the Soap Gods; we need Nikki Newman back on our screens ASAP!

For those of you that tend to believe "setside" or "inside" sources when they pass along information about a major leading star on a daytime drama, I would highly suggest that you don't even bother making negative comments about MTS. I follow her on twitter and she also follows me as well. And from all of the stories I've read and then heard MTS's interviews from the Daytime Emmy's and her comments on twitter, I believe her over any of the "crap" that people have been shoveling out the door at CBS to make MTS look bad. Y&R did MTS and her legions of fans wrong when they just dropped her like a hot potato after she taped her last scenes which last aired on June 3rd.

I am very much looking forward to MTS's return to the show!

Yeah, right!

Melody can't handle the truth (that she has to take a pay cut if she genuinely wants to work more).

Her constant retweets without any context make me LOL. I like her, though, and I like Nikki so I hope she comes back soon. And that Victor stops treating her like crap.

Luv, love, lurve MTS! If nothing else, I hope the buzz around her status on Y&R is letting TPTB know that Y&R viewers watch for other characters besides The Great Victor Newman or Ethan "Hurricane" Ashby Atkinson or whatever the fudge his name is this week!

Coffee-Junkie :
And you know this is the issue how? She has tweeted that while in negotiations she will not be discussing it. She is a class act from head to toe.

Nikki and MTS need to come back. GC is not the same without Nikki Newman.
