CASTING SURPRISE: No More Nikki on Y&R?

Might viewers have seen the last of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) on The Young and the Restless? The CBS soap isn't commenting, but Scott has revealed that she's taped her last scenes.

"Actually, I don't know if or when I'll be shooting again," Scott said on Twitter. "This week's air shows were my last, until someone determines otherwise."

This isn't the first time that Scott and show executives have reached a stalemate. In fact, it's the third time in the past ten years. In 2001, sources reported that Scott had been let go from The Young and the Restless. After several weeks of uncertainty, CBS announced that Scott was staying out but she later returned. Then, just two years ago, a contract impasse between Scott and Y&R executives resulted in Nikki Newman being written out of the show temporarily. Now, it looks like history has repeated itself and the actress may be gone for good. Stay tuned.
