Melody Thomas Scott Dishes Her 12th Marriage on The Young and the Restless

Do weddings come cheaper by the dozen? Let's hope so for Nikki Newman's sake. The tragedy-prone heroine of The Young and the Restless played by Melody Thomas Scott has married for the 12th time, as part of the CBS soap's 40th anniversary celebration. TV Guide Magazine rang Thomas Scott to find out how it feels to be Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Newman Chow Sharpe Abbott Newman. Monogram that!

TV Guide Magazine: This is Nikki's fourth marriage to the dastardly Victor Newman [Eric Braeden]. When will she ever learn?

Thomas Scott: Never! She always falls for his bulls--t, but that's what's so charming about her. She goes with her heart, not her head. She's a good example of what not to be. I mean, seriously, who'd want to be Nikki? I love this role and I'm very happy, but c'mon! She's hopeless.

TV Guide Magazine: And Victor's even worse. This is his 15th marriage. Is there a snow cone's chance in hell this one will last?
Thomas Scott: Why would it? Victor's been such a dream since Nikki was diagnosed with MS but I'm sure something major will happen after the wedding where he turns back into a jerk and Nikki sees the light again. They can't be happy. There's no story in that.

TV Guide Magazine: Nikki has been horizontal for two of her weddings to Victor, which must be some kind of crazy-ass soap record.
Thomas Scott: It's true, though the first time she was dying and that marriage turned out not to be legal, and then just recently we did the pretend marriage when Nikki was hospitalized because of her MS. But in their combined total of 27 real marriages, we're not counting their almost weddings. [Laughs] That would take us into triple digits!

TV Guide Magazine: Why does it always have to end in marriage with those two? Considering their bad luck with the "I Do's," what's wrong with just shacking up?
Thomas Scott: Are you kidding? Victor and Nikki live in the Midwest. They've got down-home American values!

TV Guide Magazine: No spoiler alert needed here: Mr. Braeden can be a handful. How have you managed to stay on his good side all these years?
Thomas Scott: I'm not going to lie and say that being his costar is easy, because it ain't. But it's so worth it. And, hey, I can be pretty ornery, too. After working with the guy for 34 years, I know how to handle him. [Laughs] And, the best part is, he doesn't even know he's being handled!

I don't know about that interview, that doesn't sound like anything MTS would say or has said in the past.
She's not too smart if she is in fact "handling" EB, and she puts it out there for him to see.

Eric Braeden has said in interviews when discussing his relationship with Melody Thomas Scott that "Mel knows how to handle me" and that was why they got along so well. The fact that MTS can make that kind of comment about EB is an indicator of how solid their friendship was and the caring they have for one another. People who are really friends don't have to walk on egg shells and can be honest about their relationship.

It was actually a tribute to EB that MTS acknowledged he could be difficult but that he was worth the effort.

This seems to be a case of life imitating art. Nikki sees something in Victurd that few others do and MTS is the same in regard to EB. LOL!

"Few"? Both Victor & EB have more than a few fans, otherwise he wouldn't be on the show.
MTS did say, he DIDN'T KNOW he was being handled, so does he or doesn't he?

I love MTS and her interviews.

But the whole nikki marrying her abuser again is beyoud digusting.

I use to really love nikki but the writing for her has gotten worse. :shame:
JG is still writing nikki as a dumb pathetic doormat.

Even the MS storyline is all about the writers trying to redeem Victurd yet again.

Nikki as a character will never grow as long her character is involved victurd. she will always will be written as through she is stuck on stupid.

sorry but i do not like actors/Actress like EB who think there bigger than they are.

EB is playing a part and is doing a great job of it. When an actor can make a person spittin mad, it shows they are a good actor. An actor that does nothing but make you yawn or know what is going to happen, is NOT a good actor/actress.

Who knows if he knows. Maybe MTS got some tips from EB's wife on how to handle or not handle him... :blulaugh:

that's a strong possibility, they've been married forever! lol
I seriously doubt EB is anything like his character, just judging from the tweets a friend of mine has had with him, he's a pretty down to earth guy with a good sense of humor, but he doesn't take any crap either.

I don't think EB is anything like his character. His mannerisms I think are the same, such as, "you got that", "well I'll be damned" and so forth are a part of him...no matter what. He is getting older and I think he should be respected for his cute little "Victorism's"... :wub2:

He's been around and with MTS for so many years that she knows his moves.
