The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Susan Lucci Job Offer Confirmed – Melody Thomas Scott In Trouble With Jill Farren Phelps

The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Susan Lucci Job Offer Confirmed - Melody Thomas Scott In Trouble With Jill Farren Phelps

The quickest way to convince me that a story is true is to go overboard with a denial. We told you guys last week about a story making the rounds about The Young and the Restless star Melody Thomas Scott who plays Nikki Newman in the context of the Susan Lucci’s job offer on Y&R. In recent months she has spoken out in support of show runner Jill Farren Phelps and the decisions that have been made regarding casting changes and firings. Nikki stabbed Michael Muhney in the back by supporting his firing – it seems that she used the opportunity to slam MM in order to get in Jill’s good books.

Scott has insisted that she has no issue with Phelps, at least until the other day when we heard that she caught wind of Susan Lucci being offered a role on the show and made a phone call to the daytime diva. Supposedly Scott discouraged Lucci from jumping onto the CBS sound stage because it’s not the best environment to work in. It was also revealed that while Scott has publicly supported Phelps she hates her behind the scenes.

Rather than ignore the GLOBE Magazine article or issue one line saying it wasn’t true, Scott took to her Facebook and point by point took issue with the entire piece. First of all, GLOBE’s record on soap opera spoilers and inside news is perfect, so why now would they be so far off the mark this time? Facts are that Melody’s statement sounds very much like someone trying to save her job! There is such a thing as denying too much, protesting too strongly, and in doing so Scott made herself look guilty of everything that the article had accused her of. She claims that Y&R is a harmonious place to work and we all know what a ridiculous notion that is. Even if the cast likes Jill Farren Phelps they still know her reputation and the bottom line is that nobody’s job there is truly safe, not even Scott’s.

My guess is that the actress didn’t want good old Jilly catching wind of her comments and believing them because it could tick her off just enough to write a storyline that sends Nikki off a cliff – literally. Do you think that Scott really did warn Susan Lucci not to accept the job offer and really does hate her boss and is now simply trying to save her job? And what about Susan Lucci – will she wind up accepting the job offer to come to The Young and the Restless. One thing that’s for sure is that Melody didn’t deny that Susan has been offered a job by Jill. Below we have some comments on Soap Opera Spy’s Facebook page:

Susan Lucci will not make a difference on this show….If Y & R would listen to their long-time viewers they would have better story lines and never have let MM nor Billy Miller go !

OF COURSE MTS doesn’t want Susan Lucci on Y&R! She would be direct competition for storyline/airtime. I believe this info 100% – MTS also made Maura West’s (ex-Diane) time at Y&R hell and ran her out on a rail. Actor survival instincts and egos…

So here we see that fans think that Susan might be competition for Melody and that is why Melody allegedly tore down Jill and Y&R to Susan! Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    I don’t blame Melody Thomas Scott for getting mad at Susan Lucci job offer on the young and the restless. Jill Farren Phelps is not thinking clearly. What Jill Farren Phelps should do is real simple either come up with some good storylines for the next couple of weeks or just fire your writers and create some new ones. Susan Lucci being on the Y&R won’t change anything. Jill Farren Phelps ruined the number one soap with her tortureness all the time. Every character is ruined by her ridicoulous storyline. Why give most of the characters a dangerous storyline to play on the show when you don’t care for them. Jill Farren Phelps you ruined General Hospital and for you to ruin this show is very bad. That is why the ratings is down. Jill Farren Phelps i think you should a background check on some of the acting happening on the show. Lily is overacting of how she used to be on that show. For Tyler and Abby engagement i am not buying it because i know something is going to happened. Maybe Mariah Tyler ex-girlfriend might come in genoa city and wreck the wedding. It happened with Avery and Nick and Lesile and Neil. You can bring in another woman for Neil since Lesile didn’t want to marry Neil. Poor Neil, he propose to Lesile and he thought she was ready for marriage but she wasn’t. Lesile thinks that marriages won’t last long. She is right but Neil wanted to be with her. Jill only cares about her couples being together but when they are about to get married then she likes to find a way to break up the wedding.

    Too much drama behind the scenes at Y&R. It’s sad that they don’t have all this drama on the show since Billy and Michael left!! The show is stupid enough to let good actors go and keep JFP, then they deserve what they get. Karma is catching up with the show and MTS for all they did to MM. I will enjoy watching them fall apart!!

  • Trapper

    I just don’t understand what the point is of hiring yet another actor when they can’t come up with storylines for the ones they have.

    • Diane Turner

      I totally agree hence Michael Muhney, Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller, and now Eliz Hendrickson leaving ….

  • Herekittiez

    Here is what i want to know. What PROOF do you have that MTS is in trouble with JFP? Are you DIRECTLY working with the actors and actresses on set? Another RUMOUR, imo produced by this SILLY website..;)

  • suerum

    The newest ratings for Y&R show that it’s at its highest level of viewership since, I believe, 2008. All the doom and gloom predictions based on plummeting ratings due to the departures of BM & MM have been shown to be unfounded. People can predict & project all they wish predicted upon their own dissatisfaction but, at the end of the day, it’s the numbers which matter and right now Y&R is doing well.

    • nds

      Suerum, are you JFP?

  • Racquel Garnette

    Guess what you guys. Aaron Newton who is going to play Adam is 5’10. That guy is short. Michael Muhney played Adam Newman very well. For this new guy he is very short. If someone older is going to play Adam shouldn’t he be a taller guy. His taping doesn’t start in May. He won’t see Adam til next month. The new Adam is younger then Michael Muhney. He had money to pay off private investigator guy. Making Jack a dangerous attraction to Kelly is so lame. Jack deserves a better woman then that. Phyllis is not in his life anymore. All the soap operas are not that too well. For this week i am watching General Hospital and Days of our lives sometimes. The bold and the beautiful and the young and the restless sucks very badly. Hope is kissing between Wyatt and Liam. The writers seems very confused. Why make Hope be a player on that show.

    • Diane Turner

      who is aaron newton….sounds very similiar to adam newman !!! Was this just a casting call?

      • Racquel Garnette

        Yes. Jill Farren Phelps says that he will be playing the new Adam. But he is 5’10 and he is 30 years old. Why bring a younger guy to play Adam Newman. A tall older guy can play Adam Newman. Maybe Jill Farren Phelps have to do another casting call.

  • Diane Turner

    Why would it become public that MTS called SL in the first place? That is something you would want to keep on the down-low !! Especially now if MTS is trying to cover her ‘tracks’…sounds like it might have been Lucci’s peeps that leaked the phone call happening..

  • Diane Turner

    I do sorta agree with Why would MTS even make a phone call like that if not for being ‘scared’ of losing her own position on the ladder…maybe Lucci is only making a cameo appearance but somehow MTS feels threatened enough to make a call and discourage her from coming….sounds like she is very insecure

  • Racquel Garnette

    A tall guy matters to play Adam Newman. Some guys on here needs to stop acting very stupid and use your brain if you have one. A tall guy who is going to play Adam Newman matters. If the writers can’t find someone to play Adam Newman then just kill off the character. Why makes sense of getting rid of a good actor on the show for someone that we don’t know who is going to play Adam Newman. It makes no sense. The reason why Michael Muhney was fired from the show is because he was having a disagreement with the writers on the show. It didn’t had to do with the sexual harassment thingy. Without Michael Muhney this show is a no show. The storylines are getting weak. There is going to be 2 dna testing going to happen that is if Jill Farren Phelps cares about it. I am glad that i have other shows to watch. I care about General Hospital now. The bold and the beautiful, the young and the restless and days of our lives storylines are bit of kind of trashy now.

  • nathan d

    good for melody if she did, we don’t need any more general hospital or all my children alums on y&r. i don’t understand these people who would want muhney back. he’s a perv who molested a young girl! i’d be happy if they replaced him with the 1st adult adam. lets replace jill faren phelps too

  • Racquel Garnette

    You don’t want a short guy to play Adam Newman do you?. I don’t think so. A tall guy should play Adam Newman. Why bring a short guy for Adam Newman when the writers could find a tall better guy to play Adam Newman. It makes sense doesn’t it. Use your brain if you have one.

    • val61259 .

      you don’t make sense.

      • Racquel Garnette

        Whatever. You are mad because a short guy won’t play Adam Newman for you lol. Don’t act stupid if you don’t know what you are talking about. Goodbye biatch!!!

  • kitty

    Story sucks without Phyllis ,Adam ,an Billy

  • Crystal Anne

    Please please get rid of the actor playing billy. He’s utterly terrible! He’s constantly grmimacing and yelling. He’s flat ! The actor who played Billy for years was charismatic and made interesting choices as an actor. WTH?! were you thinking Y&R??? I can barely watch and for the first time in years I don’t care whether I finish watching the show or not, especially Victoria and Billy storyline. It’s a snore fest which is pretty bad considering the story is pretty intense but once you fired the two top actors that were the main players in the storyline it’s just ridiculous!! I am crossing my fingers that Victoria and Billy split up and Billy just splits town. Also don’t bother recasting Adam that too will be totally unbelievable since once again you fired him during the height of the storyline! So disappointed!

    Melody Thomas Scott is an arrogant, spoiled, back-stabbing b!tch. She’s despicable and had trashed Maura West and Michael Muhney well before they ever left Y&R. Jeanne Cooper wrote about her ridiculous behavior in her last book. She refused to speak to Jeanne for years without explanation. Don’t fall for her little act. She’s a Hollywood vile hack.
