It's a sad day! Melody Thomas Scott may be written out of the show. Contract negotiations didn't go well for the 30 year vet. According to published reports, the actress is unhappy with being asked to take a salary cut or be dropped to recurring status. (What about the Victor and Nikki reunion?).

I'm going to miss Nikki and I can't see anyone else playing that role - not Deidre Hall or Lisa Hartman Black as some of the soap message boards are suggesting. Deidre Hall will always be Marlena Evans (DOOL got rid of her and Drake).
Nikki is a staple to that show along with Victor Newman and Ms. Chancellor. They've already killed off John (but he comes back as a ghost from time to time). Who's next Victor? Ms. Chancellor? Jack Abbott? Neil Winters?
Speaking of the Winter's - can we get someone to write a good story for them? Y&R are slipping on the writing for their Black cast, and while you're at it...let's add a BLACK family to the Bold & the Beautiful. Aren't their any Rich Black families in LA that are making money in the fashion industry? (Diddy, Russell Simmons, Kimora Lee Simmons, Beyonce, Jay Z)

Back to Nikki: Without Nikki, the show will not be the same and who is Victor going to reminisce with. I'm not sure how much longer I will remain a fan of either show. People like my mom and grandmother have been watching for over 30 years, but I'm sure that's about to change.
