Ordway is an only child. "The only time I acted like an only child was with food. When my mom made dinner and I didn't like it, I would throw a temper tantrum and my dad would go out and buy me whatever I wanted to eat. That's the one area where they did spoil me. No wonder I don't cook!”
She met co-star Hunter King (Summer) on the set of HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS and they have been best friends ever since.
She is married to actor Justin Gaston (ex-Ben, DAYS) and they have two daughters, Olivia and Sophie.
Ordway, who was a fan of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS before she was cast, says that her favorite characters were Victor and Nikki. “They are true Y&R royalty!”
Melissa starred in the film Seventeen Again with fellow soap alum Michelle Tractenberg (ex-Lily. ALL MY CHILDREN) and Zac Efron.
