Y&R's Victor To Nikki: "It's Appalling How Many Parts Of Your Life You've Kept From Me!"



Go Victor Newman!  On today’s episode of The Young and the Restless it looks like Victor (Eric Braeden) will lay the smackdown on Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) for her secrecy, lies, and omissions in her lifetime!

Working with Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) to uncover the truth of who her bio-son is, that Nikki  gave up years ago during those heinous cult years, and learning that said bio-son was actually Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), are just some of the things on the top of Victor’s list of disdain for his wife’s actions that she never filled him in on!

Watch a preview of Friday’s episode of the number one soap after the jump, where Victor says to Nikki, “It’s  appalling how many parts of your life you’ve kept from me!”

Then, let us know if you agree with Victor? Or, do you agree with the way Nikki has handled this situation?

It wouldn’t have mattered if she had told him sooner or not. Victor is a bully, has always been a bully, and has emotionally abused all members of his family for years. Who cares what he thinks.

As many things as he has done that he never told her and she had to find out from someone else, he’s just a hypocrite.

They had two children together so its obvious she kept no parts from him…lol

obviously she didnt keep any of her parts from him…sounds better…lol

Victor has lied, cheated and every other awful thing to not only Nikki but his own children! Screw Victor and his sanctimonious self. He has become tiresome with his “Holier than Thou” attitude.

Really, Victor? After all the games and stunts you have pulled on Nikki and your children?

Please, Y&R, redirect Victor and Nikki. Give them peace quickly and allow them to be a solid couple who can guide their children and grandchildren from lessons learned from the errors of their ways over 30+ years. There must come a time when a character achieves a measure of redemption and peace. The Newman storylines are endlessly recycled and I, for one, am tired of them. The never-knew-before-son secrety is a good piece for the game board, but focus on Nikki’s difficulties to incorporate this lost relationship in her life. Make it about her… and Dylan. If Victor is in a snit, then let it pass quickly. Or hey, show us he understands the damage of secrets and be forgiving, at least to the woman he claims is the love of his life. And who has MS! I would welcome Victor more if I could see something of a lasting change. Thought we might see it with his heart transplant (from Colleen) but no. Let the Victor-Nikki love story be one of strength that defies difficulties, and not just another road to another wedding and another river of mascara-streaked tears.

He should look in the mirror at himself first. How many times has he kept secrets?

Oh, yes….Victor the virtuous….never has a secret.

Victor is terrible. After what he’s done, he has no room to talk.

Yeah, that was precious! Can Victor spell h-y-p-o-c-r-I-t-e? Niki has about a million get out of jail free cards over Victor’s lies and deceits.

He’s got a lot of nerve, lol…

LOL! high 5 on the Nikki has about a million get out of jail free cards… Nice! love it!

oh god… I am so over… Victor… he acts like an old man! crotchety… resting on his… doesn’t he need to rest! give it a rest… no other woman wants you… !

oh god! the powerful magnate… Victor Newman…. no err in judgment… your newman crest… your self-made millionaire bookoo bucks… big F’n deal….

you’re old, near death… let’s help him get their… see ya… over you

Nikki needs to party!

Victor is one to talk…… he’s kept so many things private from Nikki over how many years? Pot meet kettle!

victor needs to shut the hell up. he is a big bully, how many mistakes has victor made. look at your self in the mirror victor newman you are a punk, alright. lol. nikki needs a new man, victor treats her like crap. but i do love eric braeden, great actor.

I agree with him.

But Victor, you need to ask Nikki how on Earth she gave birth to somebody as personality-deprived as Dullan.

He’s the most boring person ever.

Nikki and Victor are a ho-hm couple and Nikki and her secret just does not make an earthshaking story..
All the Y&R stories are very long and drawn out and put me to sleep..
the Delia story is terrible! along with the lackluster story who killed Carmine makes me FF to speed them up/move along lol ..
Sharon and her secret has dragged on and on and on and I have now lost all interest in ”who is Summers daddy story..
Y&R has been terrible.. And Nikki’s secrets are not all that exciting lol ..

I wasn’t aware that Victor Newman was able to occupy the moral high ground in any way, shape, or form.

I just wish once someone would tell this ugly cruel man to stuff it! Go Nikki!!!!

When I said ugly I mean ugly acting I was not saying the actor is ugly just for the record. This last year they have made his character so mean and nasty not that he was ever loveable but his verbal attack jobs have worn thin. I find myself totally fast forwarding thru his scenes.

you could be on to something… K/Kay….

LOL… I will never care… about Victor… until… Nikki finds a backbone… and stands up for herself… she always finds an excuse… for all of us to tolerate his… acting out… just to act out… for really no reason… at all.

I get that Katherine is gone… I get that Phyllis is gone… and you can’t have Victor and Jack at each other ALL the time… so… the writers… seem to think… that Victor is being Victor… the self-made ‘Man”. BORING!

this new regime… is no better… at furthering story along… so what that Victor is NOW, once again… all mighty! Yikes! it’s no longer any fun to watch him.

I feel for the character Nikki… let alone the actress herself…. how… boring.. and lame.. for her to have to act this way… it’s not helping this couple… legacy.. and erstwhile… just lame… for no reason…

i’m on a tangent…

I’m so with you… his verbal attacks… just to verbal attack… have so worn thin… and the writers… and whatever… Victor

Victor putting Nikki down isn’t new or original, but god-damn they are powerful scenes to watch. He’s always been bringing up her past whenever he wants to shame her, like when he told her to never forget who she was or where she came from before he married her.

MTS and EB have great chemistry together!

Ate any mice lately ? He makes me sick!!!

I love Victor, he doesn’t hide who he is..
He is a great azzhole!! and well, I’ve loved Victor for his azzholliness lol ..

Victor is one of Y&R great characters !! He is vivid and never ending, an awesome character! The hate-stick of Y&R and yet a gives off a subtle love!!

Victor (Eric Braeden) makes us feel about him exactly how we are to perceive him; a powerful egotistical asshole .. (I do like him 🙂

Subtle love are you kidding me he is a nut job!!!!

Victor is far from being a ”nut job”
He is very intelligent and simply an azzhole haaa!!

I LMAO when Victor scolded Nikki today. Tweeted to Eric Braeden that no one scolds Nikki Newman better than Victor!

“I had to find out from Jack Abbott that you had MS! You didn’t tell me! You had a secret child, and you involved Paul… You didn’t tell me!”

Paraphrasing, but damn it was fun to watch! It’s true! I wish they’d actually get into Nikki’s insecurities about her relationship with Victor because of their constant on/off as the reason she continues to keep major things from him.

When Victor spoke these words today on air, I nearly screamed at the set, “Pot, meet kettle!!”

How many times has Victor kept secrets from Nikki, starting with the fact that he hired a teenaged Paul to deliver meals to an imprisoned Michael Scott in the basement dungeon of his home, his affair and subsequent child with Ashley when Nikki had a “terminal illness,” his numerous deaths (including being in Kansas very much alive and marrying and impregnating another woman while she and their children mourned him), his quickie marriage to Diane, oh, the list goes on!

And he DARES to scream at her, “You didn’t TELL me!”? Seriously?

Someone needs to give Victor a long, LONG talking-to about honesty!

Victor isn’t mad at Nikki for lying to him, he gets in a snit any time she doesn’t make him the center of her universe. The majority of the problems between them have started when Nikki being human eventually chooses someone or something over what Victor wanted. And that is why Nikki always feels the need to ‘hide” things from him because she knows if he gets involves he is going to want to control every aspect of the situation.
If Victor knew from day one he would have either tried to talk her out of looking for her child, or hired someone to pretend they were her child— to give her a story that puts her mind at ease, but precludes any relationship between them. Or he would fake records to say the baby died. Nikki wanted to know the truth, and was smart enough to leave old Vic out of it until she had it. If she doesn’t trust him it is because he has given her plenty of reasons over the years not to.

That Victor Newman is such an insufferable JACKASS!!!!! Including Nikki, over the years, Victor has done nothing but antagonize, bully and control basically ALL of his wives (who are now his ex-wives)…Ashley, Diane, Hope and Julia. Remember when Nikki was with that David Chow dude??? Of course, David and Nikki didn’t last as a couple because of his gambling demons (yikes). But, David really and unconditionally loved Nikki, was always so loving and supportive of Nikki and (most of all!!!!!) treated Nikki as an EQUAL…REAL THINGS that that stuffy old Victor knows NOTHING about!!!!! Bottom Line: Nikki had EVERY RIGHT to keep her search for her biological son a secret from that fire-breathing NUT-JOB Victor. Asshole.

Plus she got to share scenes with the oh so sexy handsome VI! Gosh bottle that guy and clone him to me he should have been the new Ridge on B&B!

Hell Yeah…V.I. is VERY SEXY AS HELL…HOLLA!!!!!

spot on! you hit it right on the nail.

this is food for thought…

of the 4 remaining… soaps… and consider… the cast’s left: of all 4 soaps…

would it seem to you… that Y&R is really… I mean… really having to re-invent themselves? it’s so far from the original… and yes… that was decades ago.. but.. so much of the power force… is missing….

just to name a few…

all the abbotts
all the chancellors

you don’t even get too see Neil Winters family… i’m sorry… but to make Devon.. a billionaire.. just doesn’t spark… any intrigue AT ALL. Lame!

so… the writers.. Y&R production… plod along… tired Victor… because there’s nothing left to write for him… what? that his pulpit… is going to re-invigorate the remaining shell (cast) of what no longer is?

fans have been oh so candid and boisterous about all the newbies… of all the soaps.. Y&R is stagnant… suffering the most…

1. please… give Nikki a life… if we’re to herald Victor and Nikki… at least give her a semblance of a life…
2. rectify… and give Sharon… minimally some drive… and forget about Nick… it’s like they wanted Sharon to follow in the footsteps of Nikki… they both are followers… of men…
3. why not bring back Drucilla… she’d spark some intrigue… for the Winters…
4. bring back Nina… for the Chancellors

I havent’ even mentioned Michael, Lauren, their son… and Kevin.. Gloria…
dag! at the very least.. get Gloria back in the scenery… whether she has a story… with any one… she’s riveting.. and at the very least.. watching her act and deliver her lines… is better than watching 1/2 the cast plus.

I cannot think of one thing thats positive about … other than watching the best couple… Billy and Victoria… disappear.

I really hope the writers.. delve in to a possible triangle.. with Stitch, Victoria… and Chloe.

perhaps its time to shake up Paul and Christine marriage.

sorry… but.. I honestly.. think… of all the 4 soaps on air… Y&R has some major growing pains

“Good Lord! I can’t even go their”….

to even give… Victor any credence… to him spouting… how he treats Nikki… so shabbily… and… it’s the writers faults! Nikki needs some balls…. SOMETHING… geez! how on earth… any woman… and I apologize… for saying as much… but… Nikki… has lost it… just pack up your bags… and get a life… outside of the Newman men.

from the start of this tired twosome… who have no charisma… just a too long history… the appeal of this couple.. has been over for me… for eons… Victor is the haggie maggied one… his dialogue… is laughable… he bellows.. his power stance… and prose.. his big man… millionaire… corporate mogul…. who cares at this point.

I’m sorry Nikki is portrayed this way… it’s abuse

Victor lacks

ie: think, Kate (Days of OUR Lives)…Sexy! luscious, divine… fiesty… has cashola…. clothes… a life.

this could be Nikki.

Victor should be asking himself, why no one in his family ever tells him anything.
Because, to him, what they do is wrong and stupid and everything he does is for the good of the family.

He was right. She does keep things from him, because she feels he will reject her. I TRULY hope the writers are not taking us down the separation/divorce road again! She is late 50s/early 60s and he is in his 70s! I am not saying they should become the Nancy and Chris (ATWT) of Y&R, but there are other interesting stories that could be written for them.

It’s a new group who wants to write classic Victor/Nikki conflict – that’s been the pattern with each writing change over the years. I get why they do it – EB & MTS are great when in conflict. I do think its time, though, to shift conflict away from the marriage and onto other things. They can fight together – just as powerful to watch.

I agree. After all these years, it doesn’t make sense. Neither is a saint. Victor is a bully and a hypocrite, so he has no business calling anyone out on anything. What happened to the character growth story lines they focused on in the past? Why does Victor never learn? It’s not entertaining watching a grumpy old man go around in circles decade after decade. It’s actually pathetic to see anymore.

For me (viewer for about 8 years) Victor is a very one dimensional character. He seemed to have two people he truly cared for and never took advantage of > Katharine and Sharon. Kay has passed and he turned on Sharon too. A very predictable and boring character.

what is it that Victor needs left to do?

languish in self-preservation…

I’m a longterm viewer (from the late 70’s/early 80’s) who tuned out in the last few years because I’ve had enough. Personally, I don’t think Victor is relevant anymore, because he’s a broken record caricature of himself. Maybe they need to have a storyline where he is finally offed, and everyone is a suspect.

I think its time The Great Victor Newman takes a powder and maybe take his “appalling” wife with him.

He’s a freakin cartoon character at this point, doing everything but twirling his mustache!

If the show can survive Jeanne Cooper’s death it can go on without Victor Newman.

Aw, hell yeah dude…I agree!!!!! Rob…I’ve been watching Y&R ever since the early 1980’s and I gotta tell ya’…I never did care for that old arrogant and fire-breathing Victor Newman much. No Thank You. And, besides, there are FAR MORE AWESOME male characters on Y&R…Billy, Devon, Jack, Kevin, Michael, Neil and Stitch. Victor AIN’T one of them. No.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”

Days of our Lives New Gabi, Cherie Jimenez, Debut Date Revealed; Shares She First Auditioned for Role 15 Years Ago

In a not-then-but-now real-life story, Days of our Lives incoming Gabi Hernandez, actress Cherie Jimenez took to Instagram on Friday after it was revealed by Deadline, that her first airdate as the recast Gabi is next week on June 27th!

Jimenez has replaced longtime DAYS star, Camila Banus in the role. Previously, Banus made the decision to step away from the part after taking on the role in 2010. Camila was with the series on and off through 2023. To facilitate her exit, Gabi was sent to prison for the murder of Li Shin, only she didn’t commit the crime.

Cherie shared her emotions on finally being able to talk about being the new Gabi Hernandez DiMera. She expressed, “WOW ✨🎬 My heart is filled with immense gratitude over the opportunity of a lifetime. I am GABI HERNANDEZ DIMERA on the iconic DAYS OF OUR LIVES ⏳❤️‍🔥 It has been an absolute dream working on DAYS.”

As for her time so far at DAYS, Jimenez added,”These past 7 months I have worked harder than I ever have and now I get to share it with the world. Everyday I walk onto set I am in awe that I’ve been given the opportunity to live my dream. I get to work with the most phenomenal & hardworking cast and crew I’ve ever had the honor to work alongside.”

Jimenez, thanked among others the series producer, director and writers for trusting in her including: Janet Drucker, Noel Maxam, Ron Carlivati and Ken Corday, and her agents for helping her along the way in her show business journey.

She concluded with the most ironic twist of all, Cherie recalled, “At 22 years old an audition for the role of Gabi on Days of our Lives came into my life. It was not meant for me then. Now 15 years later at 36 years old the universe told me I was now ready to step into this role…Thank you ✨ …I am just beginning ✨”

So, are you looking forward to the debut of Cherie as the new Gabriella Hernandez DiMera? Comment below.

Eric Braeden Comes to the Defense of His Y&R Co-Stars Over Racist Attack on Social Media

The mighty Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) has spoken! The iconic star of The Young and the Restless has taken to social media in defense of three of his co-stars who were the subjects of yet another case of racist remarks on performers working on daytime television and the soaps.

The offensive remarks were made against Christel Khalil (Lily), Sean Dominic (Nate) and Bryton James (Devon). However, this same poster was also in the middle of the firestorm from previously posted hateful and racist comments directed at another Black actress, General Hospital’s Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As daytime fans know, earlier this week, General Hospital responded to the attacks on Ali with a message on all of their social media accounts that said, “General Hospital does not tolerate hatred or bigotry of any kind. Racism has no place in Port Charles. GH is for everyone.”

So, how did Eric get involved in this latest racist attack? Former GH guest star, Yvette Nicole Brown tagged the Genoa City legend to get someone’s attention from The Young and the Restless, and who better than the often outspoken Braeden?

The vile racist comments will not be written and repeated her. That post from May 31st, contained an image of all three Y&R actors, shared by @ghyrbbfan1974 using hateful rhetoric aimed at the stars.

When Braeden saw the truly awful remarks from the poster, he responded back, “These three actors are dear colleagues of mine; they have more class than you LOW LIFE can imagine! We are going to block your racist ass, you got that, bitch??!!”

Eric’s response went viral and “Victor Newman” was even trending on X, as Y&R viewers know that one of Victor’s often used phrases is, “You got that?” Since the time of the racist attack, it appears that the originator of these comments has changed the settings on her own X account to private, so only her followers can see her posts.

So, what do you think about this latest racist attack aimed at three stars from The Young and the Restless, and Eric standing up to the hatred? Comment below.
