THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Who Will Turn Out To Be The Bio-Dad Of Victoria's Baby Girl … Billy Or Stitch?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Just before The Young and the Restless went off the air for their Thanksgiving holiday pre-emptions, viewers learned that the results are in from the DNA tests, and now the stage is set for everyone to finally learn the truth of who fathered Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) newborn little girl, Katie!

Will the proud papa turn out to be Billy (Burgess Jenkins) or Stitch AKA Ben  (Sean Carrigan)? Look for the results to be revealed on Monday’s upcoming episode!

Several stories seem to depend on the outcome and the ramifications from it! Will this clear the path for Stitch to become seriously and romantically involved with Ashley (Eileen Davidson)?  Will the baby daddy results sway Victoria as to who she wants to be her guy?  Will she just be a single mom raising her little girl?  If Billy is the dad, what will that do to Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Billy’s romance? And, can this little girl somehow lessen the pain for Victoria and Billy of losing Delia in the hit and run caused by Adam (Justin Hartley), if Billy is the dad?  So many questions!

Watch a promo for next week’s Y&R after the jump! Then let us know, how do you think the DNA test results will play out? Will Stitch or Billy be smoking a celebratory cigar?  Could it be, that once again, somehow someway, the results were altered?  Comment below!

Who give a sh!t? It could be the Easter Bunny for all I care. Snorboria needs more to do than being a baby momma.

Ha, the Easter bunny.
Maybe Vicki and other core characters
could get more storylines if new characters
would stop parading onto the show.
And Adam…I wish he just came back alone
without dragging along Sage and Constance.
And soon will be Ashley’s new lab assistant, and
some new lady named Gwen. Ugh. Make it stop.

LOL!!
I know.. she looks half there, zonked out.
she is mourning the loss of Billy Miller and it will never be the same, and she is just not liking new Billy, that is obvious..
geez she looks depressed or some such thing..
she tries but the magic is gone..
I have no doubt she might leave Y&R now that Billy is gone..

And who’s problem is that? If she was a decent actress she could turn shit into gold instead it is the actors fault. David Tom was sacrificed for this one note cling on actress!

Harry

su000, like you, I loved Billy Miller’s Billy. But I also loved David Tom’s Billy. And believe it or not, I have really grown to appreciate Jenkins’s Billy. If I can put the past actors out of my memory banks, I can start to accept him.
But I didn’t like Victoria with any of em. I did not like her in a box. I did not like her here and there. I do not like her anywhere.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Now Lou, that was funny! You have me in Stitches!
Speaking of whom, I hope it’s not Billy’s. No matter who is playing Billy, I never liked Victoria and Billy together and never saw them as some kind of super soap couple.
I agree with K/Kay–I think David Tom was sacrificed to “this one note, cling-on, actress.” Amelia’s Victoria is about as exciting and as compelling as My Keurig One Cup Coffee maker.
Please bring back Heather Tom.

Dramatically speaking, the best option is for Billy to be Katie’s father because he can then be torn between Chelsea and his family with Victoria. It also gives him another daughter to help lessen his pain from losing Delia, and it also makes Katie both an Abbott and a Newman. Since Stitch isn’t a member of one of the show’s core families, tying him permanently to Victoria doesn’t make sense right now. Besides, such a bond between those characters potentially negates the possibility of a viable Ashley/Stitch/Victoria triangle. Since Summer’s paternity storyline just concluded after lasting for over a year,… Read more »

Hopefully, neither one is the father…let bland Victoria be revealed to have a dark side…goody good Victoria Newman by Day and red light hot mamma Lacey Lassale by night and the babys real father remains unknown(but turns out to be Ian Wards)…Victoria has a split personality and has been keeping her ‘other life’ a secret for years…give Sharon something to gloat about around those stuck up Newmans…lol

Oh, Jim, I’m w/you!! Neither’s the dad! I can’t invest in the s/l because I’m so put off by the Billy Abbott recast. If I go by who the Billy character is supposed to be then I prefer Billy be the dad. But if I go by chemistry, then Stitch would be my choice. I don’t think BJ can pull off the emotions required for the s/l either way, but I think making the baby Stitch’s is the lesser of 2 evils, as it gives Billy a reason to remain at Chelsea’s. He won’t have as much of an excuse… Read more »

I agree with everything you said…anyway making Katie an Abbot/Newman can add more drama for the years ahead than have her be Stitch’s but that doesnt mean Stitch and Victoria cant be an item..jmo!!!

Mary SF

If they are thinking long term then having Billy be the father has more potential for stories down the road when Katie grows up– another Abbot-Newman connection. Unless Ben evolves into a long term character I wouldn’t make him the the bio daddy because when the character has out lived his usefulness another child will have an absentee father. My preference would make Katie an Abbott Newman–so of course they will most likely do the opposite and make Ben her father.

su0000

naw..
This Billy and Victoria have zero chem.. The couple is gone..
I do feel Victoria does not like playing with new Billy.. she is/was too attached to Billy Miller and her and this Billy Burgess do not click, and it shows..
There is very little enthusiasm with this now couple of Victoria and Billy..
It is not there..

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Well to be fair the question was who do we think should be the bio daddy, which I answered– that has nothing to do with who should Victoria be with– I agree right now the actress playing Victoria and the actor playing Billy have little chemistry, but if they were doing their job, they could fake it better. But since actors come and go, I still believe long term story wise it would be better if Katie is anchored to two core families— one day we might have different people playing both Vicky and Billy and they might have chemistry–but… Read more »

If this is the only story we can come up with for Victoria Newman then we are in trouble. Bill Bell is rolling in his grave she has been reduced to a whiny whimpering nothing! Did it ever occur to anybody that just maybe Billy Miller was tired of being called Billy Boy and having to prop up an actress that does not even own a hairbrush????

Harry
Guest
Harry

But Suoo, is it fair to go through a million Billys until we find one with whom Amelia can work? Is there a point where TPTB have to stop and ask themselves,’Is she really worth it?’
That said, I really hope it’s Stitch’s child.

Since the baby spent so much time in the nursery, why don’t they have the results inconclusive, in that, it is NOT Victoria’s baby because she was switched in the nursery. To any of the women who have had babies in the last 10 years, do hospitals still use the nurseries or do the mothers actually send their newborns there? I had two babies in the last 5 years and the hospital did NOT use the nursery. Your baby was with you at all times unless taken for tests and then the father went with. Otherwise, baby was equipped with… Read more »

That story stinks ..
It is so stale it is moldy..
After near a year who cares or why would they lol..
What I have noticed..
Victoria looks/acts like she has been shot with a tranquilizer gun–
ever since Billy Miller left she seems to have zero enthusiasm..
(I see most of the cast not having any real noticeable enthusiasm, actually…)
Y&R took a huge hit loosing MS, MM, BM and the others who left during the past 2 years..
Bottom line; the Y&R sweeps is the worst in soap history.. YAWN !!

HA!! I love it when someone acts insane and then when called on it, you’re the crazy one. Speaking of crazy, why is it no one is angry with Queen Victoria for this stunt she pulled? She leaves both potential fathers in the dark as far as the baby’s paternity is concerned, and let’s them battle it out and stress about it during the whole gestation period. Then when either Billy or Stitch start to move on with their lives with other women, Icky throws a fit. Really, it was a heinous thing to pull on both men and yet… Read more »

I was thinking that it seemed like they would make Stitch the father, but having the baby be an Abbott would give more story and throw a wrench into Chelsea and Billy. I am hoping for Billy to be the father, even if I don’t like the actor playing him.

I didn’t like Burgess Jenkins at first either, Mo. But he’s growing on me–he’s a good actor.

New Billy/Burgess, is a good actor and he is handsome etc..
but-
he is not a good Billy..
You don’t like him/Billy and Chelsea together ..
I don’t like him with Victoria, they are chem bland, and I’m so-so with him and Chelsea, but that will be short lived anyways..

sometimes a character belongs so deep with its’ actor that when the actor leaves all hope is gone for a replacement and perhaps the character should be let to fade away..??

Stitch will be the baby daddy so Nu-Billy will throw himself into his relationship with Chelsea only to find himself out in the cold when Adam returns but then it will be revealed that Victor switched the paternity results for “Victoria’s own good.”

PV Jr.

Exactly! Once they get a Billy who has chemistry with Amelia (or whomever is playing her at the time). That is why they have strung us along ever since Billy Miller left. They do not want to sever that “Villy” thing, but it will be okay to find someone to keep the seat warm (as in another love interest) until they can get a Billy and Victoria with chemistry.

Mary SF

I am responding to another comment you made about the issue of nurseries– I may be wrong, but I think the show was only using that as an excuse to get the real baby off set. Under the rules, infants can only be on set for a certain amount of time– the old stand by excuse of it’s time to take the baby to the nursery is just a device used by soaps since the beginning as the way to usher the real infant off the scene. It avoids then having to shut down the filming in order to replace… Read more »

PV Jr.

PV Jr.

Thanks, Mary SF. I understand about the rules.

The least they could have done was made it realistic. You have a vaginal birth, you are in there for a minimum of 24 hours. So have the baby taken for its hearing test. Have the baby taken for this and that. The nursery excuse just makes the character look lazy, in my book.

Timmm

I think its cut and dry, Stitch is the father. Why? Well, it frees Billy up to have a triangle with Chelsea and Adam. Adam and Chelsea will end up together. Billy will hit rock bottom and Chloe will return to GC with Billy’s new daughter and sober him up and he will embrace Dee Dee II.

davidevansmith
Guest
davidevansmith

Agree. Billy has both the Chelsea/Adam angle for story, and then the sleeper story point of Chloe off-screen and pregnant with Billy’s stolen sperm child. Being the father to Victoria’s baby is excessive and leaves Stitch with minimal connection to the canvas. At least Stitch being the father would anchor him while still leaving the Ashley/Abby story to add conflict to Stitch and Victoria’s relationship while they work for competing companies.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

You could see a mother/daughter triangle involving Stitch?

davidevansmith
Guest
davidevansmith

Not that soaps haven’t done it before. But I more meant the fragrance/aphrodisiac story. If Stitch were the father, he would be anchored to Victoria as they co-parent and explore their feelings, while working for Ashley and Abby at Jabot developing this revolutionary fragrance. It could be an industrial espionage story where Victor tries to get Victoria to steal the formula and ends up compromising Stitch’s job which upsets him because he was working so hard to get back on track after losing the hospital job. Could drive a sisterly wedge between Victoria/Abby also, and call into question how much… Read more »

I am in Stitch corner, Billy is to much of a man child! One minute he wants to keep his distance from.Chelsea because she is a con artist hired by Victor Newman and tricked him tto conceiving a child with her , but now all of sudden she is mother and lover material! Stitch is solid and mature who has proven himself capable of great personal sacrifice for people he loves.My other issue with this Billy is there is no chemistry with Victoria.

They are horrible as a couple and Victoria just can’t connect with the the new Billy..

I think Stitch is the daddy which is a great story-line. It will leave Billy with Chelsea which will be trouble for Billy when Adam comes back. If Billy is with Chelsea she will get to see her son Johnny more & since she’s with Billy she may convince him to fight with her for custody and that would drive Victoria nuts. Stitch’s mom will come back to town & that will be trouble for Victoria & Stitch. Stitch’s sister will be hanging around which will be a sore patch for Victoria since Billy cheated with her & I really… Read more »

I agree this version of Victoria isn’t the Victoria Bill Bell created— ever since AH has taken over the role they have made her far more passive and sweeter than the original. Victoria would have never let JT take their son away from her or at the very least she would have been actively trying to win custody back by now. They have paired her with all the wrong guys, Brad, JT, Billy and now Stitch—I think the real Victoria would have been more into Joe Clark than any of these guys. Yes the actress had chemistry with Billy Miller,… Read more »

I totally agree, they need to bring back the Victoria Newman Howard of the 90s!!! She was a bitch on wheels and such a savvy businesswoman. Heather Tom needs to come reclaim her role. AH looks so unpolished and a mess all of the time, she is hard to buy as a Newman, much less diva Nikki’s daughter. Uggh come home, Heather Tom. But I think HT has too much allegiance to the Bells to comeback to this trainwreck, especially now that Pratt is running the show. And I bet Cady McClain will be on her way out the door… Read more »

Kay, we’re pretty much on the same page here. I don’t notice things like hair but I do take note of attitude. Heather Tom’s Victoria not only owned the room she entered, she dominated it. She WAS her father’s daughter and not at all like her mother, The Victor Whisperer. Amilia’s Victoria enters a room and no one seems to know she is there.
Billy kind of needs a dominant bitch in his life and maybe Stitch does too.

The character of Victoria was boring before she hooked up with Billy, but either the writing or acting or a combo just isn’t the same without Billy Miller. I still think there is another actor out there who could make the character of Billy his and make it fun for viewers to watch. It’s painful watching nuBilly. I fast forward scenes of his if he’s with Chelsea.

who needs him?

in this day and age of Genoa Ctiy… the corporate mogul… isn’t

Hollywood Reacts to the Death of Former ‘Cheers’ Star Kirstie Alley

Over the last 24 hours, friends, colleagues and former co-star have paid tribute to Kirstie Alley, the former Cheers and Veronica Closet star, who passed away at age 71.

On Tuesday, a rep for Kirstie Alley confirmed to PEOPLE.com that the actress died from complications from Colon Cancer.

Alley rose to fame in 1987 as Rebecca Howe on NBC’s Cheers. For that tole she earned a Golden Globe for Best Actress and an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy series in1991. In 1994, she received her second Emmy win for her portrayal of Sally Goodson in David’s Mother.

Some of her other roles included: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Summer School (1987), Look Who’s Talking (1989), It Takes Two (1995) and Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999).

Alley also starred on in other TV sitcoms such as: Veronica’s ClosetFat ActressKirstie and Scream Queens.  She later appeared on two reality series: A&E’s Kirstie Alley’s Big Life and was a celebrity competitor on season 12 of Dancing with the Stars.

Alley’s children, True and Lillie broke the news of their mother’s death via an Instagram post: “To all our friends, far and wide around the world. We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered. She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead. As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother. We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care. Our mother’s zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did. We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time.”

Kirstie’s controversial relationship with Scientology had been much talked about in the press and through her years in Hollywood.  The late actress shared in the past that through Scientology, it gave her the strength to climb out of her drug addiction and depression. In her 2012 memoir, The Art of Men, she noted that she stumbled upon Scientology at a very dark period in her life; that for 26 days, she drove from Kansas to Newport Beach, California, to visit a Scientology center, stopping periodically along the way to buy drugs.  After, she said Scientology helped her kicked her addition, Kirstie then became a devotee and spent decades publicly defending the church and building friendships within it, but later in life, she found some of those relationships fracture such as with Leah Ramini.

Below are some remembrances from stars from daytime, primetime, and motion pictures that offered up their sentiments on Alley’s sudden passing:

Greg Vaughan (Eric, DAYS): “I am beyond thankful to have had the pleasure to embrace your love, laughter & kindness!!! All my love & prayers”

Finola Hughes (Anna, GH): “#rip #kirstialley one of a kind”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy (DWTS) “My dearest Kirstie, We haven’t spoken lately and I’ll tell you everything when I finally see you, but for now I want to say that I love you very much and I wish you the most peaceful rest. You were one of the most unique people I have ever met and easily one of the brightest moments of my personal and professional life.  Some of our relationship is heavily documented. Most of it is known to select few. All of it was like a wild rollercoaster. From Maude to DJ Lil Buttercup you were always all in for life. As I’m typing this, memories of our time together rush to my head, I remember how absolutely wild you were and I start to tear up. Something you’d absolutely hate. And now I can’t help but smile because I remembered exactly what you wanted me to say at your funeral. Don’t think I can do it here… I thought you’d be around forever.  I wish we spoke often. Thank you for everything. I love you Kirstie Alley”

Ted Danson (ex-Cheers, ex-Mr. Mayor, ex-AW):  “I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. “I watched an old episode of Cheers.  It was the episode where Tom Berenger proposes to Kirstie, who keeps saying no, even though she desperately wants to say yes. Kirstie was truly brilliant in it. Her ability to play a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown was both moving and hysterically funny,  She made me laugh 30 years ago when she shot that scene, and she made me laugh today just as hard. As I got off the plane, I heard that Kirstie had died. I am so sad and so grateful for all the times she made me laugh. I send my love to her children. As they well know, their mother had a heart of gold. I will miss her.”

Kelsey Grammar (ex-Cheers): “I always believed grief for a public figure is a private matter, but I will say I loved her.”

Rhea Perlman (ex-Cheers): “Kirstie was a unique and wonderful person and friend. Her joy of being was boundless. We became friends almost instantly when she joined the cast of Cheers. She loved kids and my kids loved her too. We had sleepovers at her house, with treasure hunts that she created.  She had massive Halloween and Easter parties, and invited the entire crew of the show, and their families. She wanted everyone to feel included. She loved her children deeply. I’ve never met anyone remotely like her. I feel so thankful to have known her. I’m going to miss her very, very much.”

John Travolta: “Kirstie was one of the most special relationships I’ve ever had.  I love you Kirstie. I know we will see each other again.”

Jamie Lee Curtis: “I’ve just heard the sad news that Kirstie Alley has died. She was a great comic foil in Scream Queens and a beautiful mama bear in her very real life. She helped me buy onesies for my family that year for Christmas. We agreed to disagree about some things but had a mutual respect and connection. Sad news.”

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.
