Since Nikki's engagement to Paul is still on, it seems like Nikki has no problem being Heather's step-mom despite the fact that Heather had Phyllis arrested and wants to prosecute her for child abuse. Guess Nikki figures that this has nothing to do with her relationship with Paul. I don't either but agree that a union between the two would make for some pretty awkward and tense family gatherings (but many family gatherings are awkard and tense — I sometimes think it goes with the territory and there always seems to be some family "secret" or some issue that everyone knows to simply avoid). I read a post on these boards that said that Nikki was going ahead with her marriage to Paul as she gets kidnapped on their wedding day. If this indeed happens — guess guess we'll have to wait even longer until the writers decide to end this storyline! IMO, the bigger question is what Nikki's reaction will be when she learns that MJ is the one who brought the child abuse charges against Phyllis and what will her reaction be when she learns that Victor is the one who brought MJ to town in the first place!
