I knew that I was not going to accept it, but it was such an iconic thing to be asked. I took the meeting at Sunset in their very famous offices. We talked. I had no intention of doing it, but I wanted to take the meeting just to say that I did.”
Melody also opened up about her least favorite storyline for her character, Nikki Newman. Believe it or not, Melody says that it was Nikki’s stripper saga.
Melody says there was a good reason why she didn’t feel comfortable with the storyline. She said, “At that time, they had Nikki stripping. I think it was 1981. Nobody had seen anything like this on television. I just felt that I didn’t have the natural fluidity to it. I didn’t feel sexy. I didn’t feel that inherent sexiness that I think Nikki needed in order to pull [this] off several times a week. We would do all these different stripteases. They would bring in choreographers to make me look as good as I could, but I didn’t feel that I was very good. I didn’t have to confidence to [keep] doing it.”
