Melody Thomas Scotthas renewed her contract with The Young and the Restless. In an interview withTV Guide Magazine, Scott reveals how Twitter has affected her confidentiality agreement, how long she'll be off screen and responds to whether or not Eric Braeden complained to Les Moonves about how she was being treated.
Let’s not forget that these are the same Sony suits who dumped Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn from Days of Our Lives and sent out a big message to the entire soap industry: Nobody is indispensable.
I think [Hall and Hogestyn] were probably used as examples. The money folks try to instill you with fear, that’s nothing new, but the economy is working for them this time. It used to be that the employers always cried wolf about the money situation. But today’s economy is no joke. The need to cut costs is no longer a ploy. It’s the truth. It’s a unique time, so you have to think creatively to get over that hump. Unusual deals that would never have been considered in the past are now being made. You have to think outside the box to come to an agreement. And we did finally come to an agreement that was pleasing to both sides. I’m thrilled to be staying.
