Melody Thomas Scott wants tabloid reporters to keep her name out of their stories! The Young and the Restless diva is fighting mad over a Globe article saying she trashed showrunner Jill Farren Phelps to Susan Lucci

The article claimed Scott spoke to La Lucci after Phelps allegedly reached out to the All My Children legend to join Y&R.

According to the allegations, Scott dragged Phelps and discussed how terrible life is in Genoa City. The Genoa City veteran took to Facebook to tell the truth and shame the Devil. See her  post below!

    You tell them Mel! Love you!

    I wonder what regime that had the company walking on egg shells?
    Was it the one who made Nikki run for office?!

    I had no idea The Globe was still around or that they covered soap news. Didn’t their specialty used to be alien abductions and impregnations that led to the birth of Siamese twins? ;)

    Glad iots not true…

    But Meldoy, LML treated you like a real woman, who had a real brain, with real needs… beyond Victor Newman.

    LML, you did a great job with the character of Nikki while you were in GC. (Bad job with the character of Ashley, though).

    LML had Nikki running for office. And didn’t Victor pull a gun on her during his “Epilepsy” story…you know, in between cutting out snowflakes. I can’t….

    I don’t think LML did anybody any favors really. That was the one time I turned off Y&R.

    Raise some hell Melody! :bigsmile: I’m glad she went after that rag because it’s disgusting how they can get away with publishing trashy lies…but in all honesty I would secretly love if Mel had because I don’t like JFP. The glowing terms about JFP could be with several cast members but it’s the viewers that count which many, many of them hate JFP and her vision of YR…viewers keep YR on the air not the actors! ;)

    Yes, I’m pretty sure the regime that had Y&R walking on eggshells was LML’s. That was the regime that Sally Sussman Morina referred to as “a total disaster and the worst experience I’ve ever had as a writer” — noting that, “when Lynn took over, her time was spent getting rid of anyone who knew the show.”

    Can you spell R-E-L-I-Q-U-A-R-Y ?? ;-)

    The Globe is still around? I haven’t seen that in at least a decade. I wish she would sue that magazine and get so many millions out of them that they have to shut down for good!

    LML was pure and utter crap! Maria & Jill would be heaven on a good day before any LML and her crappy stories.

    However Melody Thomas Scott kept it all the way 100 and not mad she went in on facebook. You tell’em Nikki/Melody-

    I guess I’m in the minority. I think MTS is lying and she’s in damage control mode. What does she have to be happy about at Y&R? The only think JFP has given Nikki is multiple sclerosis.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire.

    Nikki has multiple sclerosis, a storyline dating back to the cult she was in in the ’70s, a long-lost son (whether we hate him or not), a man terrorizing her family.

    Aside from the alcoholism, Nikki is doing more now than she’s done in a while. No talks yet of her leaving, or being over her guarantee, or any other craziness that happened with another regime. I’d be happy too. LOL

    It was an online article from Celeb Dirty Laundry, which I guess is part of the same media outlet that also owns The Globe. Not sure.

    C’mon Junkie…if it WERE true, that would mean that Lucci would have had to call this story in to report she’d received a phone call from Mel and what Mel had said.

    I highly DOUBT that Susan Lucci has the time or inclination to report or talk about her phone calls.

    This online “rag” seems to have a LOT of readers over the MM/Miller thing seeing the number of “related” articles they have.

    The only positive about this is that people are talking and seem more interested in soaps than most think.

    Way to go Ms Scott! (And also, just because Mel was given a big story under LML, it doesn’t mean she or the audience liked it at all. Nikki wouldn’t give a sh#t about office. Latham was total crap and the beginning of some of YR’s problems that have been carried over to today.)

    It actually was in last week’s print edition of Globe found at every supermarket/drug store. I saw it myself. They print any backstage soap stuff that makes headlines. They’ve had a lot on Y&R over the last few months….. on JFP and how much she’s hated by fans when she first took over the reins, on JFP’s hatred of Genie Francis and all the early bloodbath firings, the Michael Muhney/Hunter King hoopla, etc.

    I agree with U 100 per cent. U know she would never admit this, cause if she did, she would be gone. I can not on my best day, imagining any woman I have ever known, wearing that terrible mismatched hair piece that she has on a daily basis. Unless, perhaps she is color blind, that is the most awful thing I have ever seen. One thing Y and R, does not have, is decent hairstylists.

    They didn’t get their information that way. Lucci didn’t *call it in.* She has better things to do with her time, I’m sure.

    I thought Lynne Marie Latham particularly treated Melody Thomas Scott with true dignity and respect. There was no greater Executive Producer who put women in executive positions, making them driving forces behind story-lines, and actually making the men respond to them.

    Clear Springs was a true gem, and was a great business investment created by NVP, Nicole-Victoria-Phyllis Company. Nikki proved that she could keep up with The Black Knight in the business world — and if it hadnt been for Newman Enterprises inferior natural gas piping, Clear Springs would have been a tremendous investment.

    What is Nikki now? Dylan’s Mom. Big fucking deal. I almost puked when I heard Dylan today call Victoria his sister, and Stitch had better ‘treat her right’. This is so much better for Ms Scott — to be relegated to being Dylan’s Mom? Its bad enough that Avery has been downgraded to being Dylan’s girlfriend.

    And Jill FOSTER lovers? You allegedly care about Jill being on screen, being in control. Can there be any greater control for Jill than when she was in control of Chancellor as CEO? When she was negotiating with Ji Mihn for greater access to Asian markets?

    Wow, what does Jill have to look forward to now? Being a hanger-on for Colin the Mobster. What a fuckin joke that story-line is. Music box this, and music box that. Cane tells Colin off this, and Cane tells Colin off that.

    Who else? Gloria was on cutting up Genoa City. Lauren was at least shown running Fenmore’s.

    Strong women under LML. Good, strong women. The friendship of Amber and Katherine — a gem.

    Of course, she couldnt write for Ashley Abbott, so she got rid of her.

    And by the way… it was Kay Alden and Trent Jones that made Katherine and Jill, mother and daughter. What a stupid cowardly way to bring Kay and Jill back to the forefront. Ruining the #1 Romance in Daytime at the time — that of Billy (Jill’s son) and Mackenzie (Katherine’s grand-daughter). Truly, a ‘jump the shark’ moment for Y&R. Thank God, Maria Bell reversed it.

    Y&R ratings? Because Soapnet is off the air, and to catch it in first-runs, one has to DVR it, or watch it on CBS in Daytime. And now that (DVR + 2 Day) ratings are now included in the general mix, Y&R’s ratings are up 10%. Big deal. The Show sucks!

    Lastly, MTS is definitely in overdrive to protect herself from JFP. Not sure what Melody told someone from The Globe, but I wish they had kept notes, and taped the interview. Where there is smoke, there is fire — and Melody is trying to put out the flames.

    One last thing — no mention of Jill’s brother, Greg, whom Nikki was married to, during the entire Ian and The Cult Event back in the late 1970s.

    Hey Mon we disagree on many aspects of the show…as we agree on many things about the show. You’re right it was Kay’s story and John F. Smith (Jack) was EP at the time. A big snafu on this story but even the masters have their bad story moments. MAB did reverse that blunder but then complicated story moreso by creating Tucker…this character wasn’t needed. It should had been one of many Katherine’s drunken hazes and left it at that…DEAD & GONE. I will admit the best time I personally enjoyed MAB was her last nine months at YR. Someone somewhere rather CBS or Sony but the writing tremendously calmed down and wasn’t the off the wall. It was actually enjoyable and had good stories on canvas and we still had YR’s music score ;)

    What I liked best was the mentioning of Greg\Nikki and being married during the cult story, one the reasons I’m hating the current Jim Jones Trilogy of rewriting the history…Bill’s story was so much better.

    ABSOLUTELY! about Jill and her current story! |( It sucks donkey d*cks! J)
    Ken\Cupcake Barbie and Nikki constantly bemoaning about Dylan is sickiening…just another way to push SB forward on the canvas and giving him a “family”…I rolled my eyes when he called Victoria “sister”…it should had been Nick taking Stitch’s ass to task not Dylan!!!! |( Courtney 21-Jump Street is STUPID! :|

    Now, I must admit I’m enjoying other aspects of show now compared to the last 2 years. I’m enjoying the hell of Jack\Kelly, Victoria\Stitch, Cassie2, and my heart Shick :love: Hell, I muted the other TV at the restaurant not seeing the last part of Day’s Sonny\Will’s vows to watch Shick yesterday at the end :love: :bigsmile:

    I’m enjoying Victor\Nikki’s relationship this go around, Nikki\Victoria yesterday was great…NO MENTION OF DYLAN…hurray! :bigsmile: I’m loving the Lily\Hilary flareups and yesterday those two made me :bigsmile: I absolutely loved, loved, loved Jill in everything & NO COLIN…hurray. Jack\Jill mentioning their dalliance, Jill\Billy, showing those two together and no Cane around anywhere, Jill\Lauren was great.

    The best episode of week was Thursday for me personally, the weakest was Tuesday’s and rest was boarding on good to OK…
