    Days Of Our Lives' Rachel Melvin Reaction to Emmy Nod!

    Monday, May 18 2009

    Rachel Melvin, soon to be ex-Chelsea Brady, has garnered another Daytime Emmy Nomination, as we reported last week. Soaps.com caught up with Melvin after the nominations came out and found out that she was at home when she found out about her own nomination. "I had just woke up and sat down to turn on "The Today Show," and received a text [message] from a friend in New York saying "Congrats," which was good because I guess they never announced the younger actor/actress categories." We asked about her thoughts on the show and her co-stars’ nominations and she says, "I'm very excited about all the nominations our show received. I was very happy for Blake especially. He's a close friend of mine and I have a great respect for his talent. I thought he should have been nominated last year so I was glad he got the recognition this year. It's also great to hear about Tamara and Peter, and of course Darin again. I think the coolest part is that the show itself earned a nom. I know that it's been a long time since it has and to have that happen the year I'm leaving... I'm just glad I get to be a part of such a great honor." Regarding the other show’s nominations, we asked if she had a few predictions to make. She tells us, "It's always hard to make predictions about the outcome of the awards because you really don't know what other actor/actress or shows submitted in their reel. I have high hopes for our show and that at least one of our talented actors/actresses can walk away with a statue. And if they do, I want to hold it!"

    Soaps.com sends out congratulations to Rachel, who deserves a nomination and win. When asked if she’d be at the Emmys again this year, she enthusiastically said, "Of course! I wouldn't miss it for the world." If you’d like to find out her co-star reactions, read Blake Berris’ reaction to his nomination, here, and read Darin Brooks' reaction to his Emmy nod, here.
