Young and the Restless spoilers say Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) has the Newman family scrambling after she cut a deal with the Genoa City DA. At the moment, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) are in jail. However, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) are trying to find out a way to get them out of this mess. Phyllis told the whole truth and nothing but the truth and gave Christine Williams (Lauralee Bell) all the evidence to prosecute the case.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Phyllis Abbott Betrays Nikki Newman and Victoria Newman
Young and the Restless spoilers have shown that Phyllis Abbott made clear she was going to save herself if it came down to it. She doesn’t trust the Newmans at all and felt they would throw her under the bus. So, to save herself after they were all arrested for JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) murder, she grabbed the lifeline Christine offered.
However, this could have dire consequences for her in the future on Young and the Restless. Phyllis ratted everyone out for immunity. That included Nikki, Victoria, and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case). As a result, the Newman family has to figure out their next defensive play and are circling the wagons.
The ladies knew they couldn’t trust Phyllis Abbott before. However, no one expected the rapid arrests. In fact, the ladies still don’t know that it was Sharon confessing to Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) that triggered them. If they stayed together, they might have avoided prosecution. But Phyllis confessing ruined it for them.
Phyllis: “The women will understand. I had no choice.”
Christine: “No, you always have a choice. You chose to roll over on your friends to save yourself. But hey, I’ll see you in court, because you’re my star witness.”

Y&R Spoilers: Victor Newman Warns Phyllis Abbott
Once Victor gets wind of what Phyllis Abbott did, he makes sure to warn her on Young and the Restless. At the moment, she confessed to everything, and it looks like everyone else learns of her betrayal soon. But they will get an early hint when she’s the first one out of jail. Christine will let her “star witness” go free.
All Victor wants to do is protect his wife and daughter on Y&R. In fact, he was willing to take the blame for JT’s murder in order to keep them safe. Now, with Phyllis Abbott confessing, he can’t do anything since she already blabbed. However, that doesn’t mean that he can’t threaten her, something that he does immediately after learning what is up her sleeve.
The Mustache warns her that if she does anything to harm Nikki or Victoria Newman, she’ll have to deal with him. Young and the Restless spoilers indicate that the Newmans are on the defense, things could get pretty ugly between Phyllis and Victor. Then again, Phyllis Abbott isn’t scared of him, so it’s unlikely she will back down.

Young and the Restless: Trouble For Phyllis and Nick Newman’s Relationship
Victor isn’t the only Newman that Phyllis Abbott may have trouble with in the near future. Her whole relationship with Nick could falter because of her actions. Nick already finds it odd that she didn’t hire a lawyer. It looks like he soon learns why she did this.
While Nick Newman wants to protect Phyllis on Young and the Restless, he also wants to help his mother and sister. Therefore, what she does may end up ruining their relationship completely. She has basically saved herself by sacrificing everyone else he cares about including his mom, sister, and other baby mama.
Could this ruin Nick and Phyllis’s already fragile relationship? After all, they did only end up together because they both cheated on their significant others with each other. Nick Newman aims to save his family, and after what she does, he might just take their side and leave her.
