In an interview with Smashing Interview Magazine, The Young and the Restless’ Jeanne Cooper is asked about a rather rocky period in her relationship with costar Melody Thomas Scott.

Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Have you and Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) ever discussed those years that the two of you were estranged, so to speak?

Jeanne Cooper: Never ever discussed. After all of it, she waves her hand and says, “Oh, mom.” It was just some silly thing, I guess. I’m wondering if she remembers (laughs).

Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): That is just so strange. She basically ignored you on the set for two years and had nothing to do with you off set.

Jeanne Cooper: I know. You think it’s strange. You should have been me! I mean, here is someone who is like a daughter to me. I really was very protective of her. She’s a very talented lady, but very, very sensitive. She still has the innocence and childishness that makes for creativity.

Melody’s not jaded, and that’s what I love about her so. I just talked to her the other day at a wedding. She never even refers to that period nor will she ever explain it. I don’t think she ever will. But, I wasn’t the only one. She did that to other people, and nobody knows why.
