Quote hubbardfan: [quote Licorice:]She even apologized to Adam, told him what she did was wrong, and has seen that Connor needs him.
Licorice, that was the most back-handed apology (if you can call it that)ever! Actually, what she said was, she was wrong for not telling him, BUT if she had it to do over again, she'd do the same thing! Not what I'd call a very genuine apology! She's still sorry her plan backfired and she was 'forced' to confess, and that she lost Dylan! Yes, she now knows how loving Adam is to Peanut, but she still thinks SHE's the only one who can raise him...she really is an arrogant hypocrite and I dislike her immensely! I was ok w/her when they first got together, but no more...she's a whiner, liar, and con artist! I'm sorry Adam didn't tell her to feel free to leave, but don't expect to take my Peanut w/you! Yeah, yeah, he has legal issues right now, but when the smoke clears, if she gives him any flack about Peanut, I hope he takes her straight to court! She committed FRAUD! Even Dylan can testify to that!
When did she say she was the only one that could raise the baby? Considering Adam's past, he really has no room to act holier than thou with Chelsea. Adam never paid for his past crimes so why should Chelsea lose the baby over this? What she did was wrong. As a fan, I'm admitting that. Can you do the same? Or does Adam get his usual protective shield of "that's in the past and we need to get over it" or " Nick and Vicki were mean to baby brother so he was justified in what he did". Why is Adam given this coat of armor and Chelsea barely has a broomstick to fight back? Why does Adam's past get whitewashed and swept under the rug and Chelsea constantly dragged through the mud when she at least had the decency to apologize, something Adam has yet to do. Adam has never once showed remorse to anyone but Sharon for what happened, but Chelsea is just evil incarnate.
Licorice, some of your comments made me laugh, and not in a mean way! The 'Chelsea barely having a broomstick to fight back' is priceless! :) Now, although I'm a die-hard ADAM fan, I do know that he has done some awful things (before I was seriously into Y&R), and I was just as disgusted and irritated as other non-Adam fans when he burned the scarf and didn't run to the cops from the start! He doesn't get a complete free pass from me (just a partial one)! But the main reason Chelsea kept Adam in the dark about the baby to begin w/is b/c SHE seemed to feel that Adam was not 'capable' of being a good parent, and she was (on advice of her bff Chloe)! So, being the con that she is, she perpetrated this lie on gullible Dylan, and kept the real father from his child! They both represent the pot and the kettle and neither of them can call the other out! At least he's upfront w/his evil; she's sneaky w/hers, and I still don't think she feels like she's done anything wrong; she's just sorry it all WENT wrong!
Instead of "coat of armor" for Adam, I wanted to use the things (force shield or something like that) from Star Wars but I couldn't think of the term. Better not tell my husband that slip up lol
I don't see Adam as being totally up front just because of the Faith and Patty stuff. I don't believe he needs to go to jail because jail scenes are stupid and nobody on soaps go to jail. He has never owned up to those events. That is my main problem with Adam being protected and Chelsea being torn down. Whether she is sincere or not is debatable, but at least she came out and admitted to what she has done when it blew up. Adam hasn't done that. No one else was given that same satisfaction. He hasn't had to admit his wrongdoings. For me personally, that is my main issue with the character.
Ita; I don't see him as being up-front about what he's done (he's hardly doing that right now!), rather, I noticed he wasn't even up-front when they had the kangaroo court. He was up front with Sharon in the hotel room, just before he disappeared and framed Nick for murder. He wouldn't even tell Ashley what happened to her baby. As for Patty, if I recall correctly (and that's a big "if"), everybody found out about the patty stuff because Phyllis wrote an article about it, because Patty told Ricky. (Or did Ricky write the article and Phyllis took credit for it?). He made a half-assed apology to Sharon this past summer after Chadam lost the baby (how long did it take him to do that?); to me, that was hardly owning up to anything. Victor had to find out that Jack was Fishhook. If he ever admits to anything, it's when he's boxed into a corner and has no choice but to admit to it imho. This happened with Chelsea, too; she admitted that Adam was the father when she felt she had no choice. Even as a Chelsea fan, I was very angry that she did that. But to say that Adam owns up to his ish, I have to agree with you to disagree about that. I've seen him talk to Jack about things that he has done, but that's only to take pity on himself imho...
