    [Because I can no longer edit what I typed on the "Chelsea thread", I'd like to put the edited version here. Now before anyone reads, I want you guys to know that my thoughts on these characters will vary from week to week, so don't take them at face value. This was in response to ChadamEpicLove and Trunks's exchange.]


    A Chadam Fan's "Seesaw" Perspective

    Three months ago, I understood Chelsea's motives. I rooted for her to bag a better deal and wanted her to show Adam that there were plenty of fish in the sea. So when she slept with Dylan, I had my bowl of buttered popcorn on my lap, ready to eat it up. I loved how angry she was at Adam, understood why she needed to keep her distance and pumped my fist in the air when she began to expand her horizons.

    On the other hand, when it came to Adam, I began dogging him out. He became the world's biggest douche after he'd taken Chelsea for granted. He was a fool, a half-baked idiot running after some brainless bimbo and pulling the strings behind Newman Enterprise. I was all about having the woman getting the upper-hand.

    But that was three months ago, when Chelsea's dialogue wasn't filtered through Chloe, Billy or Dylan. That was before the writers switched gears and began investing their time delving into Adam's emotional make-up while neglecting Chelsea's.

    Three months, people! Just three short months ago, I was on the other end of the spectrum rooting for one half of the couple while gleefully dogging out the other and it's amazing what a difference a few months can make in a Chadam fan's perspective. Somewhere in between those months, my empathy seesawed from Chelsea to Adam. It practically did a summersault and flipped on it's head!

    Nowadays, I find myself completely enamored with Adam (regardless of what I know of his past and how I've devalued his character in prior weeks) and feeling apathetic towards Chelsea.

    I mean, right now, I feel as if Chelsea is little more than a parrot. She's a two-legged stenotype who's only function, is to record and repeat what is said to her. There isn't any introspection. Heck, there isn't any dialogue to speak of, come to think of it. It's inspired me to feel apathetic towards her.

    As a result, my empathy and apathy has seesawed between Adam and Chelsea in an unbalanced way that feels as if I'm riding an emotional rollercoaster.

    So on that score, I completely understand where Trunks is coming from. I understand her reaction completely. I don't feel the same I did about Adam and Chelsea as I had a few weeks back. The writing is tipped in Adam's favor and therefore, I (at least) feel more emotionally attached to Adam than I do to Chelsea at this moment.

    By the by, I've also discovered I'm not an Adam FF or a Chelsea FF....I'm a CHADAM FF...lol, and I don't like to watch either of them with anyone but each other. I guess I'm greedy like that!

    Quote Sudsy Sue: At their last meeting at the hospital where Adam saw Chelsea and Chloe talking and asked if everything was o.k., I got the impression from Adam's demeanor that he strongly suspects the baby is his and only a slight chance it's Dylan's. I know the spoilers say Chelsea and Dylan's wedding doesn't' go as planned (or something to that effect) I think we can strongly assume that Chelsea will go into labor since we know about the pediatric eye specialist. I just can't figure out if she will go into labor at Dylan's apartment (I get this from the leaked script where paramedics are called to Dylan's apartment) just before they go to the justice of the peace (or if she goes into labor at the courthouse (since there is a part for a justice of the peace). I think Adam is honoring his word to Chelsea to stay away from her because he doesn't want her to lose another baby. He seems to be around just enough to be keeping an eye on the pregnancy (did anyone else notice that Adam was looking at Chelsea's tummy at their last encounter at the hospital). He told Chelsea more than once that he can count or he can to the math. I am just hoping that somehow he ends up at the hospital for the birth of the baby and Dylan is elsewhere.

    At any rate he will have to know the baby is for sure his when the eye specialist comesinto play. It would be great if her Ob/gym told Chelsea about the baby's sight problem and she lets go of her baby lie and calls for Adam. Then Adam will get to see and hold his baby before anything else Dylan happens. (Maybe Dylan can be having his own crisis when she goes into labor and he has to admit to himself that the baby is not his (which I really think he knows too).

    Then after the baby daddy issue comes to light, Adam and Chelsea will begin their journey back together as to why they got into the mess they are in. We know how much Adam loves Chelsea and wants her back, but Chelsea still believes the baby and her will be second or third or fourth in line next to Sharon, victor and NE. They have a lot to work through......should be a lot of fights and making up. I am Soooo ready for the fights and making up!


    I had the same exact impression. Adam looked suspicious, bitter, worried, hurt, resentful and near tears as he stared after Chelsea's retreating form. It was intense! He looked as if he knew she was lying and all he wanted was the truth. No matter what he says to her or what promises he keeps (like promising to say away so she'd be less stressed out), she continues to lie about the paternity. The expression on his face looked like he'd been punched in the gut and I couldn't help but feel so bad for him, boy.

    And yes, I did notice the way he stared at Chelsea's belly the minute he questioned whether she was okay. He is drawn to that baby and if he listens to his instincts, he'll know the baby is his. Forget about Dylan!

    What I would love to see happen is this, in the following order:

    1. Adam speaks to a family law attorney
    2. Attorney will file a motion to order a paternity test
    3. Chelsea is rushed to the ER in excruciating pain
    4. Adam rushes to the hospital when Chelsea's admitted
    5. She delivers a healthy 7 lbs. baby (boy/girl)
    6. After she recovers and the baby is reasonable in good health, there will be a hearing
    7. If Chelsea refuses the order, she will be held in contempt and jailed
    8. Dylan strongly suspects that the test will prove Adam to be baby's bio-dad
    9. Dylan kidnaps the baby unbeknownst to Chelsea and Adam
    10. Just as Adam is about to a paternity test, which will prove he's the father, he learns the baby is gone.

    That's what I hope will happen but you never know.


    I fully believe Adam is certain he is the father. As much sense Chuckyducky's dream scenario makes . I just want the writers to do a mea culpa, and end this poorly written drivel. I get on one hand Chelsea needs her comeuppance, but part of me feels for this character being used as the sacrificial lamb for whatever the point of this fake baby daddy story is. She needs a makeover - redemption - reboot, and whatever else to get her back to the character of last year. Does Adam taking the kid, do that? Does Dopelan stealing the babe work? I dunno. Personally I would go with a ticker running at the bottom of our screens apologizing for the whole mess, and a promise never to write this type of story again.

    I thought the look on his face said "I love you whether or not the baby is mine, but I'm holding out hope that it really is". (Isn't it strange how we can read so much into an expression or gesture ). I thought he looked really concerned over Chelsea' and the baby' welfare. I think it's more expected of Adam to react in some vengeful way, but I'd like to see him show her that even though he could be (and I think Chelsea definitely thinks that), he would instead be strong enough to show her that even though he could be vindictive, he would chose to show her his deep love for her so she could begin to trust him again.

    Quote ChadamEpicLove: Good Morning fellow Chadamanians which are increasing in numbers.

    OMG, This has got to be the most busy and fast thread on this board. I guess Chadam has that kind of spill on us, knowing how they barely share a scene any more. The past 3 months have been a total Chadam drought for us fans. No wonder the July rating is at it's lowest.

    This whole year we have had this fake Chylan so called love story and nasty barf bucket same old boring Shadam. Adam doing booty call with the prostitute of the town Matress w*ore Sharho , boy oh boy I don't know why the writers and SC and MM keep pimping this couple. Don't they realize that a Shadam pairing has been done for the past 3 years and it tanked YR in rating and cause many old loyal fans of the show to say bye bye to YR due to their nastiness and toxicity of that vomit pairing. At least with Chylan, we have a sweet romance even though it is delusional to some extent. Shadam is nasty and same boring storyline over and over again. Adam and Sharon are about sex and then for the afterglow it is the same how we can't be with each other blah blah seriously if you two are that bad for each otehr then stop doing the nasty. Sharon is queen of w***e. She is digusting and is an incest twit. Sleeping with all Newman men Thank god Noah is her son or otherwise she would bang him. I used to love Sharon and Shick and only watched YR because of them but she keep becoming a sex crazed w***e who kept on promising that she will change but in the last 2 decades she is yet to find herself. She is needy, home wrecker, sleeps around all the time, manipulates her own children, is the worse mother considering choosing Adam over Faith and the list goes on and on. SC is a beautiful woman but has no acting ability compared to MS and MCE. The only reason she is still surviving is because she is a vet. She can barely play a supporting cast let alone a leading lady.

    The only reason we viewers are stuck with this boring and non-ending Shadam bull is due to SC and MM pimping it . This whole mess of this pairing started with SC pitching it to the writers and look what this pairing did to her character. Sharon 's downfall was majorly because Shadam. Granted Sharon was always a needy and doormat before Adam but Shadam ruined her character to a point where no amount of writing genius can redeem her.

    Now coming to Adam, the reason I love Chadam is mainly how their story was written and developed, how real and genuine their connection were. How a con and demon like Adam would change each other for the better but Adam in my opinion never really changed. After Riley died, he went demonic again, treating Chelsea like crap, lying to her, helping the ever so miss needy ShareAnewman while his own wife was hurting and was mourning the lose of their child all alone.
    Fine we get it that he has done very awful thing to Sharon and will forever feel guilty for kidnapping her child and blah blah blah but burning half of GC and then burning Chelsea's parents business and then asking your wife to stay mum, this guy in my opinion hasn't really changed. He doesn't love neither Chelsea nor Sharho. He only loves himself. The only two things he cares about his dddy dearest love which he will never get even after taking a bullet for him and NE which soon he will be losing.

    Adam might have graduated from Harvard but his IQ is lower than 13. He let matress who*e come between him and his wife and let Chelsea go because hewanted Sharho but then after Sharho rejected him which is not believable considering how easy she is to have specially to Adam, she even agreed to be his prostitute only without any pay. She is easy and that is why Adam can always have her without putting an effort. She and her nasty legs are always open for Newman men .
    And now we are supposed to believe that Sharon was just a booty call and Adam was moving on with twit Melanie all because Chelsea doesn't want to have anything to do with him. He is drinking and feeling like a lost puppy. Adam is slowly becoming a joke. I don't know how they can make him Victor 2.0 when he barely have any charm.

    Victor has a way with women , he might be old but he always charms the pant off women, Adam comes off as loser, Sharon wants him because no else wants her, she is easy and always will be, Melanie is just a cheap newbie who is also easy to get. Other than that, no other women wants Adam. He only had a real and powerful connection with Chelsea but once Chelsea saw the lies and ugliness and how Adam was manipulating her, she left him. Adam was emotionally and mentally abusing her so she was rightfully justified.
    I can't really blame Chelsea. She was deeply hurt by Adam and how he flaunted that easy mattress wh**e so called cheap nurse frosty finger in the same home they bought and dreamed of building a family in.

    Now as a Chelsea FF, I don't know if I should continue supporting Chadam or pray that my spunky terror move on to a better guy . The more I think about it they more I hate Adam and how he treated the best thing that ever happened to him. This dude has serious issues or mental problems. He let a easy and incest loving sl** destroy his relationship with a young woman who not only is beautiful and spunky and grey but also was his loyal friend and listener when middle aged shareanewman left him all alone while he was blind and at his most vulnerable.

    Despite of knowing that Shadam has destroyed YR a lot in the past 4 years and are a bust for the show, they keep listening to SC and MM and their pimping. In my opinion we viewers deserve better. They can't insult our intelligence with this nasty pairing. All they are good at is doing the nasty in the office. They are all sex and manipulation, no love, only obsession.

    Chelsea made Adam tolerable to me and humanized him a little bit but it is unfair that Chelsea had to be used to redeem Adam. Since we all Sharho couldn't redeem him due to that ugly and nasty history.

    Lord Jesus, I will be soon saying good bye to this show if Chadam doesn't find their way back to each other. Adam needs to do a lot of begging cause he is the cause of this mess. Chelsea might not be a saint but her tricks pale in comparison to Adam and Sharho.

    I will always be Team Chadam and Team Chelsea but I am not an Adam fan. His character is just pure demonic and psycho and has no human quality in him . The only time he was human was when he was married to Chels.

    If the writers wrong us and instead of Chadam, do another boring round of Shadam, then I am done with this show. It would serve them right if the show gets cancelled since they rather pimp their own faves instead of what people or audience wants.


    Good post. I'm an Adam FF, so I've gotta defend my boy...just a bit. He was completely in the wrong for allowing Sharon to mess with his guilt-riddled mind, because that's all it was. He loved his wife, but he let his past with Sharon confuse his feelings. He even admitted to Chelsea that she messes with his mind. He will probably always feel guilty for what he did, and nothing will take that away. He can save everyone in GC, but the guilt over Faith will always be there. He has to learn to live with it, and not let it consume him.

    When he lost Chelsea, his confusion started to ebb, but then he also has these HUGE daddy issues. Lots of people want to condemn him for that, and for being such a whinebag over a useless tool like Victor. Imagine growing up never knowing your father, only to discover your father is this wealthy and powerful billionaire with kids HE RAISED. It would really mess with your self-esteem. Since this revelation was dumped in Adam's lap he has been filled with self-loathing, insecurities, and pain. He wonders why his father didn't want him. It's not enough that Hope didn't want him to know about Victor. He sees how powerful Victor is, and if Victor wanted to be in his life, he would have been. Nothing would have stopped him. Hope just gave him an out.

    Adam has twisted himself into a pretzel to become a Newman. I think it's more out of a desire to prove that he's just as good as them, than his love for them. He has these walls he erects around himself to keep from feeling too much. Chelsea is the ONLY person to crash through those walls. Adam was always weepy and stalkerish with Sharon. He was real with Chelsea. She reached him in ways Sharon never did. He knows this now, but like Jack Abbott, Adam must learn the hard way.

    I'm not trying to excuse his Sharon behavior while married because he was SO WRONG on so many levels, but I get why he did it. As to his obsession with NE, I get that too. I do think Chelsea could have been a little more understanding and compassionate over his issues with Victor and NE, but after the Sharon debacle she had had enough.

    Anyway, sorry for the looooooong post, but I wanted to present Adam's point of view the way I see it.


    I agree. Chelsea lost all Adam's trust and think the worse of him. The love is still there but the trust is gone.

    In regards to Chylan without trust there is no love. Chadam started with trust that turned to love.


    Yes, Chelsea told Adam as part of their New Years reunion about not trusting him and wanting to leave the country. He has to earn her trust, which she will have to earn his back to. She felt humiliated for not being put first with a guy she was and is madly in love with.


    All true, but I wish they had kept the focus on Sharon because the haters used it as a blunt instrument to call Chelsea selfish and immature. It was a plot point, but I think she had just reached her limit because of the Sharon debacle which preceded the Paris reversal on his part. I will always believe she should have fought harder for him, but that's the Adam bias in me.


    ITA about wishing they kept the focus on Sharon. To some extent I wish Shadam was still going on, but struggling mightily. A woman scorn would finally explain Chelsea. I could understand her keeping her child from the father and his arsonist girlfriend. I wouldn't mind seeing Adam suffering a wee bit from losing Chelsea and being stuck with Sharon, and realizing he is "stuck" with Sharon.

    Alas they at that time did not want to make Sharon the other woman. Which is really infuriating considering they have no problem making her the villain in Summer's paternity story.

Now before anyone reads, I want you guys to know that my thoughts on these characters will vary from week to week, so don't take them at face value. This was in response to ChadamEpicLove and Trunks's exchange.]


    A Chadam Fan's "Seesaw" Perspective

    Three months ago, I understood Chelsea's motives. I rooted for her to bag a better deal and wanted her to show Adam that there were plenty of fish in the sea. So when she slept with Dylan, I had my bowl of buttered popcorn on my lap, ready to eat it up. I loved how angry she was at Adam, understood why she needed to keep her distance and pumped my fist in the air when she began to expand her horizons.

    On the other hand, when it came to Adam, I began dogging him out. He became the world's biggest douche after he'd taken Chelsea for granted. He was a fool, a half-baked idiot running after some brainless bimbo and pulling the strings behind Newman Enterprise. I was all about having the woman getting the upper-hand.

    But that was three months ago, when Chelsea's dialogue wasn't filtered through Chloe, Billy or Dylan. That was before the writers switched gears and began investing their time delving into Adam's emotional make-up while neglecting Chelsea's.

    Three months, people! Just three short months ago, I was on the other end of the spectrum rooting for one half of the couple while gleefully dogging out the other and it's amazing what a difference a few months can make in a Chadam fan's perspective. Somewhere in between those months, my empathy seesawed from Chelsea to Adam. It practically did a summersault and flipped on it's head!

    Nowadays, I find myself completely enamored with Adam (regardless of what I know of his past and how I've devalued his character in prior weeks) and feeling apathetic towards Chelsea.

    I mean, right now, I feel as if Chelsea is little more than a parrot. She's a two-legged stenotype who's only function, is to record and repeat what is said to her. There isn't any introspection. Heck, there isn't any dialogue to speak of, come to think of it. It's inspired me to feel apathetic towards her.

    As a result, my empathy and apathy has seesawed between Adam and Chelsea in an unbalanced way that feels as if I'm riding an emotional rollercoaster.

    So on that score, I completely understand where Trunks is coming from. I understand her reaction completely. I don't feel the same I did about Adam and Chelsea as I had a few weeks back. The writing is tipped in Adam's favor and therefore, I (at least) feel more emotionally attached to Adam than I do to Chelsea at this moment.

    By the by, I've also discovered I'm not an Adam FF or a Chelsea FF....I'm a CHADAM FF...lol, and I don't like to watch either of them with anyone but each other. I guess I'm greedy like that!


    I LOVE this!!!! We need some good emoticons on this site because frankly these suck, but if we had a bountiful supply of emoticons I would be giving you lots of bows, and "good post"! I am an Adam FF, and then Chadam fan, but you are so correct with your assessment of how this writing has been so schizophrenic. We're all invested in Chadam, and really want the Chylan garbage to follow the Shadam garbage into the dustbin of history. At this point, many of us don't care how they get there, as long as THEY GET THERE.

    Adam was the dirty dog early in the story, but that has shifted considerably. Chelsea acts like the other half of a very bad ventriloquist act. She's supposed to be savvy and street smart, yet she lets this mealy-mouthed, immature, sanctimonious little twit lead her around by the nose. It's absurd. The Chelsea that stormed into GC never would have allowed all of her decisions to be dictated by a stupid child like Chloe. This makes zero sense. Chelsea stood up to Adam Newman!! We're supposed to believe she can't have a normal thought process without Chloe whispering crap in her ear 24/7? Sorry, but that dog don't hunt.

    Adam is getting the sympathetic writing at this point. He is being written as someone hopelessly in love, but heartsick because it's not being reciprocated. Yes, he brought it upon himself, but not the baby lie. He didn't and does not deserve that. He thought Chelsea would always be there because he knew he had her wrapped around his finger, but then she proved otherwise, and it blew his world apart. He's had to examine his feelings since the shooting, and there's been no equivocation on his part. He even asked Sharon if she thought he could get Chelsea back, while Sharon was actively trying to get into his pants. He knew this, but all he could think about was Chelsea. He didn't realize what she really meant to him until he lost her. Now he knows, and it's a hell of his own making, which is why he's trying to respect her boundaries. All the ambiguity about Adam's feelings has been replaced with total clarity, which is really unfortunate since she's the ambiguous one now. Maddening.

    Quote jamilah: I am looking forward to watching Billy vs Adam. I think they will be the modern version of Jack vs Victor. Will Billy be a constant loser to the Newmans like his brother Jack? How about a Billy/Chelsea pairing down the road. That could be interesting Billy being step daddy to Adams kid.


    I would love for a Billy/Chelsea pairing. Here's a couple with chemistry!! Not that dullsville Dyldo.



    Am I on the wrong thread? I'm not ready to even BEGIN thinking about pairing Chelsea with anyone but Adam. If this doesn't happen, I won't care who she pairs up with b/c I won't be watching it -- but we've come this far and I will give Chadam my all until I see where the writers are taking them.

    Go Team Chadam! (I know we're all Chadam fans here -- just kidding about the wrong thread, but I don't want to think about a different pairing at this point. Chylan is painful enough.)

    I am not feeling that vibe either of dylan and chelsea. I love the hot romance with Adam the best. i love the story line with dylan actually thinking that dylan is an actual father to chelsea love nest child. further more, Dylan might go back to Avery sooner than chelsea can open her eyes to true love. I also love the idea of Billy stick it to Adam why not add another love triangle in the mix of chelsea and Adam love for each other. I am team chadam do not get me wrong. I can see billy and chelsea actually becoming a couple just to stick to adam. I love where the writer are taking them now as long it is just a love story with both chelsea and Adam in the same story line together. I am loving how chloe got a big girder to where adam did treat chloe and kevin wrongly.

    Quote Chuckyducky:
    Quote Sudsy Sue: At their last meeting at the hospital where Adam saw Chelsea and Chloe talking and asked if everything was o.k., I got the impression from Adam's demeanor that he strongly suspects the baby is his and only a slight chance it's Dylan's. I know the spoilers say Chelsea and Dylan's wedding doesn't' go as planned (or something to that effect) I think we can strongly assume that Chelsea will go into labor since we know about the pediatric eye specialist. I just can't figure out if she will go into labor at Dylan's apartment (I get this from the leaked script where paramedics are called to Dylan's apartment) just before they go to the justice of the peace (or if she goes into labor at the courthouse (since there is a part for a justice of the peace). I think Adam is honoring his word to Chelsea to stay away from her because he doesn't want her to lose another baby. He seems to be around just enough to be keeping an eye on the pregnancy (did anyone else notice that Adam was looking at Chelsea's tummy at their last encounter at the hospital). He told Chelsea more than once that he can count or he can to the math. I am just hoping that somehow he ends up at the hospital for the birth of the baby and Dylan is elsewhere.

    At any rate he will have to know the baby is for sure his when the eye specialist comesinto play. It would be great if her Ob/gym told Chelsea about the baby's sight problem and she lets go of her baby lie and calls for Adam. Then Adam will get to see and hold his baby before anything else Dylan happens. (Maybe Dylan can be having his own crisis when she goes into labor and he has to admit to himself that the baby is not his (which I really think he knows too).

    Then after the baby daddy issue comes to light, Adam and Chelsea will begin their journey back together as to why they got into the mess they are in. We know how much Adam loves Chelsea and wants her back, but Chelsea still believes the baby and her will be second or third or fourth in line next to Sharon, victor and NE. They have a lot to work through......should be a lot of fights and making up. I am Soooo ready for the fights and making up!


    I had the same exact impression. Adam looked suspicious, bitter, worried, hurt, resentful and near tears as he stared after Chelsea's retreating form. It was intense! He looked as if he knew she was lying and all he wanted was the truth. No matter what he says to her or what promises he keeps (like promising to say away so she'd be less stressed out), she continues to lie about the paternity. The expression on his face looked like he'd been punched in the gut and I couldn't help but feel so bad for him, boy.

    And yes, I did notice the way he stared at Chelsea's belly the minute he questioned whether she was okay. He is drawn to that baby and if he listens to his instincts, he'll know the baby is his. Forget about Dylan!

    What I would love to see happen is this, in the following order:

    1. Adam speaks to a family law attorney
    2. Attorney will file a motion to order a paternity test
    3. Chelsea is rushed to the ER in excruciating pain
    4. Adam rushes to the hospital when Chelsea's admitted
    5. She delivers a healthy 7 lbs. baby (boy/girl)
    6. After she recovers and the baby is reasonable in good health, there will be a hearing
    7. If Chelsea refuses the order, she will be held in contempt and jailed
    8. Dylan strongly suspects that the test will prove Adam to be baby's bio-dad
    9. Dylan kidnaps the baby unbeknownst to Chelsea and Adam
    10. Just as Adam is about to a paternity test, which will prove he's the father, he learns the baby is gone.

    That's what I hope will happen but you never know.


    I fully believe Adam is certain he is the father. As much sense Chuckyducky's dream scenario makes . I just want the writers to do a mea culpa, and end this poorly written drivel. I get on one hand Chelsea needs her comeuppance, but part of me feels for this character being used as the sacrificial lamb for whatever the point of this fake baby daddy story is. She needs a makeover - redemption - reboot, and whatever else to get her back to the character of last year. Does Adam taking the kid, do that? Does Dopelan stealing the babe work? I dunno. Personally I would go with a ticker running at the bottom of our screens apologizing for the whole mess, and a promise never to write this type of story again.


    Then I have to ask: how would you FIX MCE's character? What kind of make-over would you give her? How do you see Chelsea rectifying what she's done?

    1. How will she explain such a vindictive move?
    2. How will she do it and come out smelling like a rose?
    3. Honesty and good faith are apart of a relationship and when Chelsea decided to lie, she decided to dishonor both men. How would anyone here, propose to fix that? How do you explain that away?

    It's pretty clear that we've all unanimously agreed that it would be best if she came clean and told them both the truth herself. That would work in her favor. Also, Adam suspected he was the daddy early on, so it won't be a big shock for him.

    Thirdly, this baby wasn't a result of an illicit affair. She conceived while married to Adam and therefore, it should not come as a surprise (to Dylan) that the baby is, indeed Adam's. The only question left to ask is why...because frankly, this whole mess is just stupid and she could've rectified it early on. She's just making it worse for herself and I don't understand why.

    Most women wouldn't do this. Adam is Mr. Moneybags. He's a walking-talking bank account. That's money right there! A mother-to-be would have child-support in the bag. So what idiot does this! I just keep smacking my head against the table with this story! It's too stupid for words!

    She's a hot-flucking mess but I digress; I do think she's been sacrificed to sell other characters and I do think it sucks.
