Young and the Restless Spoilers: Abby Newman Torpedoes Another Relationship?

Once Y&R episodes resume, we’ll see more on Abby Newman and new love Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz). Last we saw, Abby was close to torching this romance already. Why? Because she jumped in over her head with family drama again – where she’s not needed.

On Young and the Restless, when Abby Newman heard Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) blackmailed her daddy, she was ready to get into it. So, she asked Chance to record Adam’s murder confession secretly. But, he shut down Abby and reminded her Adam saved him.

But, if Abby Newman keeps pushing on the issue, trying to help Victor, she’ll push Chance out the door. Longtime Young and the Restless watchers know she can’t keep a man. The last good guy, Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic), she also lost over family drama and her father foibles on Y&R.

Y&R Spoilers: Victoria Newman’s Got Work But Not Much Else

As Young and the Restless recaps recall, Victoria Newman blabbed the Kansas murder truth to Adam. That forced her dad’s hand, and he gave her back the CEO seat. But, Victor walked away from her then and said she had the job but not his respect. That’s not enough for Victoria.

All through the years on Young and the Restless, Victor sabotaged Victoria Newman’s personal life when he felt like it. And Victoria’s scrambled to gain his approval – especially when it came to Adam. Now, though, she’s got the dream job – but lost her daddy Victor.

Plus, Young and the Restless viewers know she’s got no man in her life. Victoria Newman’s nagging ways cost her Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), but Victor approves of that. And her last boyfriend abused her. So, Victoria’s love life is even worse than Abby’s right now.
