Young and Restless Diva Melody Thomas Scott is About to Get “Laid Off!”

Young and Restless superstar Melody Thomas Scott isn't leaving the sudser, so put down those smart phones, and don't start blowing up Sony TV's switchboards! The actress has merely thrown her hat into the web series arena with Laid Off. Thomas Scott dished to TV Guide's Michael Logan about the series, which revolves around three friends, all of whom lose their jobs on the same day.
Thomas Scott plays herself and becomes the object of one of her pal's obsession in the raunchy comedy. Check out the NSFW clips after the jump!

Currently, the series has no date slated for its debut. Fans wanting to support the venture can do so by visiting their campaign funding page. The fundraising drive ends Feb. 14.

    Y&R might not be the best written soap opera anymore. But the behind-the-scenes antics and drama are better than ever. It is obvious that hardly none of the actors like each other. Given that Melody had this to say in the interview:

    “There were very few actors who had wonderful things to say to me when I returned. Whatever.”

    akbad — I am sorry, in a way. I know that Melody as Nikki has really pushed forward Y&R not just since Thanksgiving 2011, but really, over the last 33 years. She is definitely a ratings winner, and she brings ‘life’ to all of her story-lines. I have to acknowledge that.

    But — The quiet reservedness of Ashley Abbott. The power of Victor Newman. The calculations of Jack Abbott. The ruthlessness of Adam Newman towards all, but his loyalty towards Sharon. Her support for the under-dog, and her need to be protected all the time. The slinkiness of Red. All of these actors and actresses, and more, over the last 3 decades, spell out ‘daytime drama’.

    It’s Nikki Newman, especially, that brings up the phrase ‘soap opera’. Her haughtiness, the crying, the tears and mascara. The Diva. But once again, she is very, very responsible for Y&R being what it is today. #1 for 2 decades, and still on the air. So I do understand the draw of Melody Thomas Scott, and when push comes to shove, I really am glad she’s back.
