Melissa Ordway always wanted to be nominated for the Daytime Emmy Awards and she was all set and geared up to attend the event with her proud parents and her family but she will not be able to attend. Ordway took to social media to reveal that her dream of going with her parents is on hold until next time because she just tested positive for COVID.
It has always been a dream of mine to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award and to bring my parents to the show. It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.
Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.
To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees!
Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything. So grateful to play Abby. @youngandrestlesscbs
To my amazing parents, I’m so sorry that this weekend has fallen apart. I was so excited to attend the awards with you. This nomination was because you always believed in me. I love you.
To everyone who’s cheered me on, sent me well wishes and love and support, it means more to me than you’ll ever know.
I love Daytime and I’m honored to be a part of this talented group! Cheering from my couch!
Her current and former co-stars quickly commented with good wishes for her. Ordway and Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) both represented the show in Monte Carlo recently. Wishing both of them a speedy recovery!
