Ok ok - I took a vacation (not from WATCHING Y&R but from my duties of WRITING) and after several complaints, I have decided to come BACK. Although my fingers might break off if I attempted to write ALL that has happened in the two months past, I can at least catch you up on all the good stuff most recent.
So after Victor's pilgrimy ex-wife, Hope, died, an invitation to their son Victor JR (who rebelliously goes by the prodigal name Adam) was made so that he might join Newman Enterprises. Adam reluctantly took the position and immediately began ruffling feathers across Genoa City with his most INSIPID and ARROGANT attitude. Victoria unexpectedly quit her job at Newman after Adam's manipulation had her bouncing around the company like a pinball, and now suddenly the greasy-haired scheister has started feeling a bit bummed that he crapped all over the only sister he's got. Meanwhile, he's still busy hitting on Phyllis and sexually harassing Victor's HOT and YOUNG new girlfriend, Sabrina, who also happens to be Victoria's best friend that we've never heard of before.
SPEAKING of which, let's introduce Sabrina the sexy, accent-clad art dealer who is nothing but modest and demure - clearly nothing farther than the tawdry, lumbering likes of Nicki. Although Sabrina and Victor's suddenly hot-and-heavy affair pissed off Victoria royally, it didn't stop Victor from producing an ENORMOUS diamond ring and proposing marriage last Friday (and dammit! I think he deserves some honey after all that vinegar!).
Nicki and David Chow, in the meantime, are facing inevitable doom, as David's gambling problems have gotten completely out of hand. Although Nicki realizes David has dropped a few too many G's in the past, she does not know that Brad is secretly paying a bookie to lure David into sheer and utter debt, leaving Mr. Chow owing Mr. Carlton a cool 100 grand in secrecy. The couple have booked the Colonnade Room for their stuffy wedding in August, but surely it's not meant to be since the only flowers they will be able to afford are carnations after David's debts are all paid off.
Lily and Cane are also rollercoastering lately, as Lily became unexpectedly pregnant. And even though Cane stepped up and was exciting to start a nuclear family (all the while Lily whining and pining about her mom), the baby was miscarried just a quickly as it came.
Business works at Nick, Phyllis, Jack, and Sharon's new rag-tag magazine have been under fire as the women bicker and bitch over fashion sense (come on, we ALLL know Sharon's sense of style consists of an Abercrombie thong and a day at Tan Rio) and famous fashion editors dog the first issue's content. However, with such a stellar troupe and stellar cashflow behind the project, we know it'll work out anyway - HEL-LO! they bought a trendy warehouse! SOOO Pearl District!
Gloria and Jeffery seemed to have finally broken up because they are both old, and Gloria needs to pursue more time with her duties in High School Musical. Duh.
In completely UN-ELDERLY LOVE NEWS, Amber and Daniel have officially moved in together, and the unrestrained sex all over the penthouse has resumed. Trust me, Daniel and Amber's hot sex all over piles of money are still WAYYYY more exciting than Lily and Cane's tea-sipping miscarriage talks. BOR-ING!
And FINALLY, Adrian "douchette" Korbell and Colleen seem to have also hit the skids as Colleen has suddenly determined that the book she INSISTED that her beloved write (exposing the sordid Nazi-Art story of her family) is now a BAD idea, just a week before publishing. Of course Adrian is all, "OMGWTF, bitch?!" and Colleen's all, "My bad...." so lots of tears and lip quivering have been searing the screen in the past week. It seems that Brad and Michael Baldwin are claiming the book is full of LIES so it probably won't be published and Adrian will have to start teaching at the community college where the co-eds aren't so easy, or toned.
SOOO there you have it. More to come this week <3
