Melody Thomas Scott has spent the last number of decades playing the role of Nikki Newman on 'The Young and the Restless'. Her portrayal of the Newman matriarch has made her a household name even to this day and her pairing with Eric Braeden's Victor Newman which is often referred to as "Niktor" is often the topic of conversation among daytime viewers. Scott recently spoke with TV Insider's Michael Logan and dished on Nikki's current predicament, her pairing with Victor, an upcoming Memoir that she has been working on and more.
When asked the question if she can see Nikki ending things with Victor and moving on, Scott highlights:
"Yes I can and I hope that she does. She needs to start seeing other men and not just to get Victor’s goat, though it certainly would do that! Of course, for the sake of her sanity, she should be with absolutely no one right now. She needs to learn to live by herself and be happy. But when did Nikki ever make the right choice?"
But who could be the right man for Nikki should she move on? Also, Scott spoke of a memoir she had been working on for years which speaks of her childhood experience that may shock a lot of viewers. The memoir is still in the works and will soon be ready. Scott highlighted that she allowed her daughters to read it before going ahead. Here's what she had to say about it:
"Yes, but I let my daughters read the book before it went anywhere. I said, “Okay guys, before I submit anything I will let you—and only you—read it. If there’s stuff in there that bothers you, now’s your chance to let me know.” They did not nix anything but ever since they have treated me so differently. I mean, they’ve always treated me beautifully. I’m so lucky. They are very loving daughters. But they were in such shock that I was able to live through everything I reveal in the book. They’re in awe now. They’re like, “Oh, Mom, I am so sorry you went through all this!” I have never discussed any of it with them, so they were really stunned. There is new respect for me in their eyes…respect that I am alive. Reliving it all was the worst part, and that’s what made me put the skids on the book early on. It was going well at first and then suddenly I was, like, “I can’t. I am not ready to do this.” So there were delays, but then I also thought, “God, I better get on this! What if I drop dead before this thing is finished?” That got me over the hump and it was fine after that. Odd things motivate me."
