Melody Thomas Scott Asked To Take Recurring?


In Friday's Suds Report at TV Guide Canada Nelson Branco published a juicy blind item that had soap fans speculating all weekend. In today's Nelson Ratings Branco reveals the identity the actress in question as The Young and the Restless starMelody Thomas Scott.


According to multiple sources, MTS was originally asked to accept a 30-40 per cent pay cut, the norm at Y&R, but she refused. What was Y&R’s reaction? The No. 1 sudser asked Scott to go on recurring status instead.

These revelations come after The Young and the Restless let Don Diamont go and was considering a recast in the role of Jill Abbott if contract negotiations with Jess Walton fell through.
