Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days

In all fairness, they probably didn't intend to put her in the story they did at first and the actress plays younger then she is. The show made the mistake of making her 18. That was dumb. There really is no need for a recast IMO.

As for Austin and Sami, I'm talking about their early days. I'm not talking about 2005-2006 when Austin, Sami, and Nicole were working together. I'm talking about when Sami was around Melanie's age and a corporate exec at Titan. She actually had a title and was being treated like a serious business woman, which is my point. They tried to portray her seriously as that while the show is not trying to do that with Melanie here. This all fell into Melanie's lap and all she does is own the rights. She knows nothing of business or the project.
I don't think they're trying to portray her as a serious business woman either. What they ARE trying to do is to portray her as a slick con artist who can manipulate older men. And for that, I stand by my assertion that I've made since they started putting her in scenes with Philip, she is woefully miscast. It's not that they're trying to pass her off as some corporate shark. It's that apparently Philip, Brady, Victor, EJ and Stefano all are clueless when it comes to how to handle her. They're acting like she's Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction, an amoral user who will do anything it takes to put herself on top. IMO, Molly Burnett simply does not have those kinds of acting chops and even if she were playing her actual age instead of 18, I would still find it ridiculous.
