I don't give a rat's patootie who Nick thinks he loves. We were discussing Sharon's 'love' for Brad. She never professed her love for him until she and Nick were on the plane on the promotional trip. I don't remember her ever telling Brad she loved him. That day in the parking garage in the car was the day she kicked Nick to the curb and made up her mind about not wanting a reconcilliation. That's the first time she and Brad became 'chummy'. People can call their previous friendship an affair if that's the way they see it, but people also call her rapes as affairs too - which is disgusting.Quote Gencor:Quote clicquot1: TAKEN DIRECTLY word for word from the cast list. Sharon was devastated & forced to deal with her feelings ALONE after Nick became withdrawn & obsessed with making Daniel pay for Cassies mistake. In the end, Nick came forward with evidence to prove Daniel was innocent. With their marriage on the rocks, Sharon later found out Nick was having an affair with Phyllis Abbott. Soon Nick & Sharon separated, then found their marriage over after Phyllis became pregnant.. Since then(from that time) in 2006, Sharon has found comfort in & had a ONE NIGHT STAND with Brad Carlton,but almost lost her lifelife after being kidnapped by men from Brad's past. Certainlly, Sharon did wrong by becoming involved with Brad BUT it was AFTER the affair and I'm not making excuses for her behavior. EVERYONE in this whole Sharon/Nick/Phyllis/Jack debacle is guilty of cheating with everyone else and no one is better than the other. As far as who's fault the affair was NICK chased after BOTH PHYLLIS & SHARON and while both women contributed to their affairs with Nick and "share" some blame about the actual affairs themselves it was NICK who initiated BOTH AFFAIRS and he was the married man.
While Nick was away looking for Daniel, Sharon got very close to Brad, she begged him the day of his wedding not to marry Victoria for her. She even asked Nick to leave, and it wasn't because of Phyllis. She put Nick out because she was in love with Brad and wanted to be free so that they could be together. Sharon was indeed all over Brad, even in the front seat of the car it was getting pretty hot and heavy when Nick walked up. Nick was not seeing Phyllis then and was innocent to what Sharon and Brad had going on. It wasn't until Brad dumped Sharon that she wanted Nick to come home and work things out with her. Nick started his affair with Phyllis while he was not living with Sharon. Sharon got herself kidnapped when she went looking for Brad at his house. Sharon was all over Brad. She was in love with him. That is why I never thought anything of Phick getting together. Because at the same time, Sharon was begging Brad for all she was worth to choose her. Nick did go back and try with Sharon, but by then he was already in love with Phyllis and it went from there. But Phyllis encouraged Nick to work it out with Sharon even when she found out that she was pregnant. Phyllis didn't want to get in his way. She offered to raise the child herself. Nick made his own decision about Phyllis. He was in love with her and he told Sharon that he was in love with Phyllis. He still cannot tell Sharon that he doesn't love Phyllis.
