She should leave. She lands a good number of gigs between breaks on Days, so I am sure she would land more if she had more time. Daytime is dying, young actors need to leave ASAP. Chandler is stuck there for awhile, but the moment his contract is done he needs to run.

I completely understand that she's not everyone's cup of tea, but she DOES have a significant fan following.

She does, esp in the target demo. She is a master of social media and great to her fans, honestly id say she is in the top 3 on days of largest fanbase that actually watches the show.

Wasn't crazy about her at first but she grew on me and now I love her. And now she's leaving! Too bad -- she's by far the strongest performer of the "young set" on Days. And too bad they didn't brink back Mark Hapka and/or Jay Kenneth Johnson to act opposite her because the chemistry she had with both was fire.

As Cheap says, good luck to her. She's talented and sparky, I could see her doing well in rom coms.

I am pretty sure this is why Nick is back. Poor choice, IMHO.

I know there's a lot of speculation that the show stopped writing for her this past 5-6 months because they knew she was leaving.

yeah, I think there is a lot of truth to this.

I wouldn't mind seeing them let him out of his contract, the character feels used up anyway.

Still, some primetime actors seem to sign up for the show (like invisible Freddie Smith) so I guess acting work is scarce enough for some to want to be in the genre until it's gone in a year or two.

it all depends on the contract terms. something tells me freddy got himself a pretty limited episode contract and thats a reason he isnt seen as much, but i honestly dont know.

I used to like her, but her character ruined Philip, Stephanie, Nathan, Nick.... am I missing anyone??? Won't miss her.

Pretty much. She's the Black Widow of Days. Sleep with or fight with Melanie, leave the show.

Yet there are a lot of people who can't, or won't, acknowledge this. If the rumors are true that she's leaving... and it looks like they are... I just wonder which young actress will get picked on next. After all, everyone's favorite whipping girl will be gone, right?

I have had it with Days.

I dont think she's a horrible actress. She does well with everything they give her and she has a very natural charm and appeal to her. I just dont think Melanie as a character is needed or adds much to the show. She used to be super annoying but since she isnt used quite like she was last year, she hasnt been so bad. I cant say Id miss her though if she left.

Like now? She hasnt been a focus of the current writers in quite some time.

Yes. Molly (Melanie) is much better when she's not being shoved down our throats as this next great herione. She was without a doubt the best part of the Austin/Abby storyline. When she was front and center, when she was getting married to Phillip, and Vivian trying to kill her to get revenge on Carly, she was truly awful. Those crying scenes in the hospital where she was blaming was without a doubt some of the worst acting. Molly is much more suited to comedy rather than emotional drama types of storylines.

She's come a long way. And I agree, she's MUCH better suited for comedy or light-hearted fare than drama.

There was a point when my partner was watching DAYS and I had abandoned the show, so I'd make dinner while he watched. I could always tell when Melanie was on because I could hear her screeching nails-on-the-chalkboard voice from across the entire house. True story. I couldn't hear anyone else's voice, but ALWAYS heard hers.

I think she could pull off drama, given that it was the right role. Yes, there's no getting around those hospital scenes (even I won't sugarcoat those... lol) but I think if the writing were stronger it might work out.

That said, I could see Molly pulling off a screwball comedy along the lines of What's Up Doc in a second.

She is more of a CW or ABC Family kind of star, not any other the other networks. I can see her doing those chessy Bring it On sequels and those type of crappy movies.

Yeah she's really not good and I for one am glad she's gone. I suferred long enough. Maybe some of those other crappy young people go next.

I will have to disagree with you and I always tend to agree with you. She isn't a good actress and she is like more of a C-list actress for crappy shows and networks.
