THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Victoria Headed for Heartbreak Over Ashland

Courtesy/CBS

This week on Y&R, look for Victor (Eric Braeden) to be hot on the trail of Ashland’s (Robert Newman) deception where it comes to his health crisis and concerns.  Victor is worried or his daughter Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) marriage to Ashland, and is poised to bring Ashland down.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, it teases, Victoria is worried that Ashland taking a more active role in the company will be detrimental to his health … there may be no health problem at all!

In story, Michael (Christian LeBlanc) sends Victor a video of a doctor formerly employed at the Peruvian clinic admitting that Ashland paid him to falsify his medical records.  Now, Victor wants Ashland to own up to his lies and mistakes and leave Victoria’s life ASAP.  But, will that happen?

Watch the latest promo for The Young and the Restless below.

So, do you think Ashland is indeed been lying all along about his health and faking his illness? Will Victor drive a wedge between Ashland and Victoria once and for all? Let us know your theory via the comment section.

this storyline is an absolute bore.

The whole show is an absolute bore ! I was watching old clips from the 90s and the show was Prime time quality . This show is truly pathetic. I haven’t watched in months and will not until it gets better . I have my doubts that it will . Again a simple formula of restoring the old music scores , dimming the lights , and having at least one villain would improve the show. Where is the drama ? Does anyone die on the show ? There are way too many companies to focus on ! I could go… Read more »

I So agree with you since they have left the show has lost its mojo when major characters leave you gave to have other stories ready. See days of our lives for details there is never a slow down. Yandr has written nothing exciting since summer and Kyle left

I can hardly wait until Ashland Locke’s agenda is revealed and smug, vindictive Princess Victoria gets hers. Her megalomania is out of control, not to mention her sadistic pleasure in torturing Adam. My only wish would be that Adam be the one to rescue Newman Enterprises before Locke steals the entire empire from her adoring hands.

Soaphound…’vindictive Princess Victoria’…very, very accurate description…lol. More and more, I keep looking forward to Victoria’s downfall. To me, she is such an insufferable bore. Tick Tock Tick Tock…

Love it, Soaphound. And will the smug Princess Victoria ever be found out for her lie that she’s the one who put a stop to Billy’s stupid plan? That’s what swayed her father to her side over Adam’s. On another note, I felt your abject disappointment when both Moses and Faith announced they would not be leaving GC to attend college. THUD! They got our hopes up when they discussed attending out-of-state colleges.

I wondered if that was why Victor kept Adam on as the head of that arm of the Newman empire — to catch Ashland and his devious deeds.

Agreed, Soaphound—Victoria is not Victoria. She’s getting more and more blood-thirsty—which makes me wonder how she has fallen under Ashland’s spell.
Yet, after today’s ep, I may have been too hasty in my estimation of her stupidity.
The shards of ice spitting out of her eyes as Ashland was signing “the contract”, could have frozen hell ( sorry Satan).
Is she on the know? Is she playing Ashland to see how far he will go? Beware of a woman scorned!!
I really don’t like this guy. I’ve never heard of him—Burgi was much more likeable–more en par with Victoria.

Soaphound

Well, Celia, here’s my take. Robert Newman was on GUIDING LIGHT for many years in, basically, the Nick Newman role — the youngest scion of a wealthy family who mostly followed his own path. And he was adored in that role, particularly as half of the Reva & Josh super-couple juggernaut. But.. he’s not convincing as a devious Ashland; he seems afraid of his own shadow when he’s not confronting anyone. And Victoria today looked like she was coming down from a bad LSD trip. Her eyes were practically rolling in her head when she gave Ashland that contract. Can’t… Read more »

If Ashland didn’t love Victoria in the beginning I think he does now and will not want to risk throwing it all away. Its hard to speculate not knowing all the details but Victoria has to weigh all the facts and think with her heart as well as her ledger and Daddy’s findings. Hopefully she’ll trust her heart as well as all the other stuff and not throw it all away out of some false pride.

I agree with you ; she should remember her father’s character ! She and Ashland could become a power house !

As usual the ‘writers’ are scrapping by making up new plot points as they go brutally along. I bet once they realised that without Burgi as Ashland they should just go back to their original lame idea that Ashlands just a unredeemable villian. Without Richard Burgis charm and amazing chem with Amelias Victoria the new Ashland as portrayed by Robert Newman doesnt show the same affection or desire for Victoria. And vice versa. Now we get more daddy mumbles moustache and boring lost Billy boy to the rescue. Someone pls give Billy a vacation. Sidenote…bcharacter posing as a major one… Read more »

WHY DO YOU NOT LIKE MOSES, IS HE NOT ENOUGH OF A BAD BOY FOR YOU?? I THINK HES A GOOD EXAMPLE OF A NICE YOUNG MAN, HIS RACE DOES NOT MATTER!!

Harry
Guest

Moses is just so dull as is Faith. And who mentioned anything about race? That said, I find Ashland way more interesting now that he’s played by the immensely talented Robert Newman. I used to fast forward through Ashland scenes but no longer. I do, however, fast forward through the endless irritating and boring Abby-Devon-Chance baby storyline. I don’t even recall the baby’s name since he has about a million last names. The only folks I find interesting right are Adam and Sally.

Soaphound

Soaphound

Harry, if you’d told me three months ago that I’d be rooting for Sally and Adam, I would have said you’re not paying attention. Well, here I am rooting for them to succeed, hopefully in pulling Newman Enterprises/Locke/Media/ChanceCom out of Victoria’s greedy hands for good! At least Sally, opportunist though she is, doesn’t cut off Adam at the knees like Victor. Across town, yes Moses (the actor) is cute but he’s dull and Faith has become insufferable. And the Chance Abby Devon (Chabon?) story is more played out than a Justin Bieber record. ENOUGH! Whenever they come on screen, I… Read more »

Faith is insufferable and she has a resting bitch face. Love the Justin Bieber reference. I really thought the writers were going to realize their horrendous mistake with the baby storyline and end it. But NO!! Instead, they keep it going and going. It’s like the Duracell Bunny on tranquilizers.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep until you tell me what a “resting bitch face ” is. I’ve truly never heard this expression.

Soaphound…i know she’s not perfect, but I’ve liked Sally ever since B&B where she was the main attraction for me. Especially compared to the continual rotating “love” and baby stories. I missed Adam in his really bad boys days. So I am rooting for him, too. As far as Victoria I don’t think the only reason she doesn’t want Ashland taking a more active role in the company isn’t entirely because she doesn’t want him to overdo since it could be detrimental to his health, but because he is already overstepping and may want to take her control of Newman… Read more »

Of course he’s a good kid, and who cares what the hell color he is? I would bet that 99% of us just find these kids not only boring, through no fault of their own, but totally unnecessary to the scrip. I think most of the viewers are adults and therefore not interested in their teenage angst. As far as I’m concerned, they are just fill-ins when there’s nothing else going on. No one has anything against the kids themselves.

rose
Guest

Violet…I agree with you on some of the younger set and their storylines. Maybe it’s because they are written by older adults who forgot what it was like to be teens. Thus write what some find boring, fill-in stories. Ones that do interest me are Trina, Jos, Spenser and Esme on GH.

Damien

The Days teen set also delivers! The last time y n r had a successful teen supercouple was J.T and Colleen..but then the new writers destroyed that

They are my favorites too, although Joss was a little extra bitchy the other day, so much that she hurt and embarrassed Trina who Joss sas trying to help.

Boring is boring no matter race. Was alluding to Faith should be involved in atleast a teen triangle with a badboy opposite of Theo the nice kid!

Perhaps Victoria knows of Ashland’s lies and is going to bring him down herself. She is smart and has a lot to prove to Daddy. Billy is Victoria’s true love.

Didn’t Nate run tests? Didn’t Ashland go to the hospital for treatment? A lot of people would have to be in on the conspiracy. Was his goal all along to get Newman? But how he could foresee everything that happened?

Not one other person, including his wife, which was totally suspicious or Nate was with him at his supposed treatments.

Well, I think taking a more active role in Newman will certainly be detrimental to his health, depending on who takes him down. You know what they say about a woman’s wrath. Be afraid Ashland, be very afraid.

Violet…Yes I would be more afraid of Victoria and than Victor, Billy, or Adam.

Violet, my friend, I agree but I also fear that Princess Vic will fall back on her usual tirade of blaming someone else. In this case, it might be Adam, Victor, Nick, Billy, Sally, or any combination of the above. It’s doubtful she’ll show any personal remorse or guilt, it’s just not how the Newmans are wired.

I think it depends on how deeply hurt and betrayed she’ll feel after finding out the truth, and that depends on how much she really loved him. I always felt that Billy was the love of her life, but there was something different this time. Sorry, but I loved this guy too and I feel bad that they are turning him into a bad guy, someone that Daddy can throw in her face after he tells her “he didn’t deserve you”

Okay VIOLET, let’s dish about Billy’s podcast. Have you ever seen a bigger waste of time in the history of soaps? I tried to laugh and couldn’t; the whole enterprise reeks of self indulgence, bad writing, and over the top acting. I don’t know if I’ll be able to stomach another one.

OMG, I was yelling at my TV and FF as fast as it would let me. This has got to be their stupidest idea yet, and waste of air space. We already know where the writer’s thumbs are all day but are their brains indisposed also. I want to hear from one person that thinks this SL is interesting, please!

There are many problems at Y&R but since this is about Victoria and Ashland, I think the problem lies in the casting of either Ashland. Both are talented. BUT, neither one had chemistry with Victoria. Ashland would have been better paired up with Ashley. As for the rest of the show, keeping my promise, mostly, I cannot wait to hear Billy’s next podcast! Oh, the drama!

While I do love Robt. Newman, I think Burgi had more romantic chemistry with Victoria. I do think he’s a worthy opponent for Victor though. Today watching Victoria spar with Adam, I thought they might have made a good couple, gave off a lot of sparks, too bad they are brother and sister.

Again, I said from the onset that Ashland faked his illness—not because I’m so intuitive or smart–but because the writers made it too easy–too obviously naked writing—Victoria “fell” for this guy without a hitch—-Baby Harrison was a convenience at the time, I guess. Therefore, is it possible for Tara and Ashland to have been working in tandem? The scope, a concerted effort to overtake the Newman’s business holdings? If Ashland and Tara orchestrated this plan, then it is also possible that he and she are still in communication. Is it also possible for Harrison’s paternity-DNA-test to have been manipulated/altered? Such… Read more »

Peacock Announces Ric Flair Documentary ‘Woooooo! Becoming Ric Flair’ Drops Dec 26th

He is a pop icon, ‘The Nature Boy”, the 16-time World Champion, a 2-time WWE Hall of Famer, and one of the most prolific superstars in Pro Wrestling history.  And now, Peacock is set to drop the Ric Flair documentary, Woooooo! Becoming Rick Flair on December 26th.

Flair, who is now 73-years old, opens up about his storied career, behind the scenes and backstage moments, classic matches, and more for the last 50 years.

Many wrestling superstars past and present, along with pop culture celebrities appear in the special including: Hulk Hogan, Mike Tyson, Post Malone, Stephen A. Smith, and Ric’s daughter, WWE superstar, Charlotte Flair .

In a statement Ric Flair expressed: “Many stories have been told about The Nature Boy over the past 50 years. I’m thrilled to have partnered with WWE and Peacock to produce the most accurate depiction of my life to date and hope audiences enjoy the ride. Woooo!”

Rod Aissa, EVP Unscripted Content, NBCUniversal added: “Very few people have professional careers as storied as Ric Flair. We can’t wait to give Peacock audiences this revealing, in-depth and often raw look into the life of one of sports and wrestling’s most controversial icons.”

The project is a co-creation of WWE and sports reporter Tom Rinaldi, who narrates the documentary.

Previously, ESPN had produced a documentary on Flair for one of its 30 For 30 specials back in 2017.  However, in recent episodes of his podcast, To Be The Man, Flair shared that Peacock’s new look special on his life, would out perform the previous one on ESPN.

Ric revealed: “This will be better than my 30 for 30 on ESPN because I made them promise me that whatever I said they wouldn’t edit. I’m not going to do something that’s going to be edited again.  It’s been passionate and I expressed everything that I thought was good or bad in my life. I discussed my personal life, my personal problem, family problems, wrestling problems. Issues with people that I’ve had. I just answered questions and I answered them as truthfully as I could.  I had 12 hours with Tom Rinaldi. He asked my every good question in the world.”

You can check out the trailer for the documentary which debuted on Ric Flair’s Twitter account today below.

So, after you watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, check out Wooooo! Becoming Ric Flair starting December 26th, which is sure to have plenty of soapy drama within it.

The question is, just how much will they find out, and with Finn, Steffy and more on her trail, where will Sheila go to escape prison and her lies?

In the newly released promo for the action this week on the CBS daytime drama series, Finn informs a shocked Steffy that Sheila is alive.  Next, Steffy says, “She staged her own death”.

When Finn and Steffy confront Deacon if he knows Sheila’s whereabouts, he lies, covers and responds, “I have no idea where she is.”

Later, Deacon warns Sheila that her games are catching up with her, stating: “You hear that sound, that’s the walls closing in babe!”

What will the oh-so-clever Sheila do next to escape prison and being found?  Will she hightail it out of town? Don a new disguise? Try to plead her case to her son, Finn? Whatever the case, when it comes to Sheila Carter viewers know she has more than nine lives.

Watch the latest preview below.  Then let us know, do you hope Sheila is caught and put in prison for shooting Finn and Steffy and her crimes? Do you want her roaming free? If so, how could she have the relationship she wants with her son, Finn and grandson, Hayes? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.
