The interview with Michael Fairman is fun and humorous and MTS doesn't beat around the bush! Smile Melody is wonderfully funny. Here's a excerpt:

MICHAEL: "Nikki is featured prominently in the 10,000th episode where she believes for all intent and purposes Victor is “dead”. There is a scene at a grave site that people have been buzzing about featuring you. What can you tell us about the emotional scene and what to look forward to?

MELODY: How many times have I cried at this grave site??! I lost count! Each time you must make it seem like the first time, so it becomes a challenge.

I enjoyed both Thursday and

I enjoyed both Thursday and today's episodes. Like to see Victor and Nikki together when they are acting like a couple. I know a lot of people are over Daisy, but the Patty and Sheila scene has me interested. Again, here is another "good streak" for MAB that she never seemed to be able to maintain. Too bad, because regardless of what a lot of people think, I believe she really did care about the show. 9 more to go.

I think MAB did care about

I think MAB did care about the show when present but she didn't know how to write good sustaining soapy drama consistently and it showed for 5 years under her watch. I agree the last 2 episodes where good so at least Josh has a foundation to move on from then terror storyline of MAB has created in the past. Think about it could be hellva lot worse trying to shore the stories if we was in the double doppelganger madness Maria wrote 2 years ago...Phew! Josh missed a bullet, he can take this good idea Maria had and write it properly and soapy in the way it should be done.

Agreed, and well said.

Agreed, and well said. What's on the screen right now is a lot easier to transition than if it had been 2011 or if Clear Springs was still standing. Ugh. My all time worst storyline. Well, okay almost everything LML did.

Boo, MTS, boo! Always trying

Boo, MTS, boo! Always trying to play the town drunk, or the one who settles for ol Vic's sloppy seconds. Give me Clear Springs, the intelligent story of a CEO-style woman trying to build a resort complex. Give me state senator candidate Nicole Newman, too.

Oh well, MTS, oh well.

I think Victor's next story

I think Victor's next story should be in the political arena and have Nikki take a bigger place at Newman Industrial working with Victoria. Clear Springs I thought sucked and did nothing for Nikki. IMHO only.

To me, Nikki Newman doesn't

To me, Nikki Newman doesn't "work" as the strong Senator or businesswoman. I'm sorry...it just doesn't work to me. I don't mind Nikki having something to do, but geez...she's just NEVER been that type with Bill Bell at the helm. Then when the others started then we got businesswoman Nikki. Which is cool, but I wouldnt necessarily say Nikki being the snobbish drunk lady of the manor is out of character.

I agree about Nikki she isn't

I agree about Nikki she isn't the politic type character. That is more Victor's area for the character. I do think they need to give Nikki something more to do then be Victor's wife. If Victor is in politics and Nikki is beside him and her dirty laundry is aired as stripper, drunk, etc which Nikki couldn't take the pressure and fell off the wagon would be pausible story. But again Nikki can't be the drunk all the time either, then we back into rehashing old stories and I think all Y&R fans wants something fresh in stories after MAB's rein.

Give me more Nikki with Kay,

Give me more Nikki with Kay, Sharon...maybe Jill or Glo?

She's the only Newman that needs MORE airtime, not less. Let's cool off on Victor, Nick and Vic for a bit.

No more drunk Nikki for a while, HOWEVER again this IS one thing that MAB did right. I did like the pairing with Deacon briefly until they tried to revisit it.

Like Kay and Paul, she's been around since the 70's people. She's a corner stone of the show. Even BEFORE the mustache.

I wouldn't mind seeing her sis come back for a story arc either. So many possibilities! Matt, Vic's bro was hot too...

pferrando...honey Casey died

pferrando...honey Casey died a few years ago, either on MAB or LML watch. I think it was during one of her contract negotiations and she went to see Casey because she was sick, when Nikki returned Casey had passed away. I was watching a few weeks ago on YT from '80 and Casey was featured in a big story-line, I forgot about the story where Casey is addicted to drugs and stealing medication from the hospital...before Nikki had her addiction to pills.

MTS has several times stated

MTS has several times stated that she doesn't think Nikki should insert herself into the corporate world. Too bad, because I simply LOVED the Jabot executive Nikki turned into in 2000. I loved her as Jabot's CEO too - but not the senator stuff. That was WAY over the top imo, the whole idea of a senator race on Y&R was OTT. (None of them are cut out for a job like that.)

MTS has also stated she loves playing drunk and is always open to a drunk Nikki storyline. I get that actors feel it's fun to play that but to me, it just hate it when Nikki falls off the wagon. I don't wanna see Nikki fall off the wagon - I want her to be strong! Same goes with Kay.

It's always so funny when the fans and actors opinions can be on totally opposite sides.

Casey DIED???? WOWZERS...I

Casey DIED????

WOWZERS...I had no idea!! I clearly must have missed that. But it had to have been under MAB's watch because Nikki left town (probably contract negotiations) under MAB to be with her sister Casey who had cancer. I guess I Just missed or ignored the scene where we find out she died. That's terrible....and POINTLESS.

Did she die? I used to watch

Did she die? I used to watch and know every minute of the show, so I guess it could have been under Lynn when I had to fast forward through much of the show. I do remember the visit, but not the death. Oh no!,,, Smile

That could create some

That could create some tension between the sisters. I also would like to see a hospital presence on the show, which also could bring both Olivia and Nate back. (then Dru)

Stoney, they should hire us as story consultants.
