Melody Thomas Scott has been a fixture on The Young and the Restless for 40, count 'em, 40 years, and CBS is going to help her celebrate. Scott tweeted that she will appear on The Talk on Monday, February 18. Then, Y&R will air a stand-alone episode on Wednesday, February 20. Wednesday's episode will feature "vintage clips" of Nikki that haven't been seen since they first aired.
Scott took over the role of Nicole Reed Newman, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, in 1979 and has been playing her ever since. Nikki was an exotic dancer at The Bayou when she caught the eye of business magnate Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). Their tumultuous relationship has been a staple of Y&R for decades. Nikki's come a long way baby. She is now one of Genoa City's wealthiest women.
Currently, Nikki is in the big house for the murder of her former son-in-law, J.T. Hellstrom.
