MTS is now in contract talks again. Sony wants her on recurring or dropped completely. MTS wants to stay but is mad at what they are doing.|
***UPDATED with DC REPORT***
Just received a tip, that those spoilerazzis over at Daytime Royalty, are abuzz with rumors about The Young and the Restless leading lady Melody Thomas Scott once again being in rather salty contract talks with Sony. Guess what, we've been hearing the exact same thing!
Reportedly, Scott was allowed to save face in the press by making it seem like she re-signed "on her own terms" during her last round of talks, but chatter is Scott was only given a short term deal to coincide with the end of Eric Braeden's contract cycle.
"Melody is willing to take the substantial pay cut Sony wants her to take, but she wants a contract," says a source.
Sony, however reportedly wants the actress to take recurring or nothing else. Could we soon be seeing the last of Victor and Nikki?
"Sony was paying close attention to what happened at Days of Our Lives when Deidre [Hall] and Drake [Hogestyn] were let go," says an industry insider. "Not only didn't the show tank, DAYS has actually gained viewers. They could care less about angry fans online."
This ish gets crazier by the minute...
I'm pissed of by this news MTS went through this contract crap in the summer. she took the paycut and signed the contract. EB/MTS contracts are completely different. EB chose to walk, MTS wants to stay. I love nikki and mts. what in the hell was the point in taking her back to go and do this? I was really looking forward to seeing nikki without victor, instead looks like we won't be seeing her at all.
mab and the hacks haven't helped nikki/mts storyline wise. they backburned her last year with paul. and now her comeback they have written nikki in the worst light.
MAB has no new ideas or storylines. all she does is rehash stories.
