Melody Thomas Scott Reveals What Nikki's Hiding on The Young and the Restless



What is going on with Nikki  (Melody Thomas Scott) these days? The Young and the Restless viewers got a bit of a shock when they saw the socialite’s hands shake after she tickled the ivories in her new deluxe apartment in the sky. Is this a sign of Nikki biting it? TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan got the real deal and more from Mrs. Thomas Scott herself.

TV Guide Magazine: MS, huh? Yikes. Please tell us this is a good idea!

Melody Thomas Scott: When people hear MS they gasp and think it's a death sentence, and the plan with this story is to educate people that it's not, that it's controllable with the proper treatment.  Of course, the fans on Twitter are already thinking Nikki's gonna die what with all these mysterious symptoms she's been having. They thought it was maybe going to be cancer or something. Of course, what do I know? [Laughs] Maybe they are killing Nikki off? Hey, these things happen. 

Thomas Scott also revealed whether or not her storyline was created because of contract disputes.

TV Guide Magazine: Is your contract up? We've been here before!

Thomas Scott: [Laughs] Hey, they tried that already and it didn't work! But, seriously, I think this could be really worthwhile, an opportunity to show the audience that MS is not the end of the world. We actually have a girl on our crew — I've said good morning to her every day for years and years — and I only just found out she has MS. She's a perfect example of people living normal lives with the disease, so that's very encouraging.

I think that Nikki definitely looks her almost 57 years of age and then some.

I'm so on board for Victor\Nikki pairing and LAST marriage. Look this new story for Nikki is fabulous. We haven't been with Nikki playing the piano since Bill stopped fully writing back in '2003. It's wonderful.

As for Victor, so better balanced now and I loved the scences with Nikki\Victor. Some was irate about the ranch burning I stated long ago about there would be a new ranch...it's happening with a hugh event planned soap style!

JFP did that on GL w\Spaulding mansion and updated it and it was so fitting and plush. So this is going to be her biggie...Newman ranch. I can't wait to see it!

If any of us look that great at that age, we'd be on a soap. Tongue

She's fantastic. I love it when she plays the piano.

The first time it ever happened I remember thinking it was fake. Then the camera got close and revealed it really was her playing. I was shocked to see that kind of talent coming from her. (I was very young.)

And...it was at the ranch... Which is why I have my good memories of it.

Not really. I think Ashley/Eileen is much better looking and she is only a couple years younger.

Well, thank goodness, MST is leaving, she is an annoying actress with that silly voice. Mot a very good actress at all.
I only watch it occasionally to see what is going on.
I love General Hospital
