I knew the writers would write something ridiculous in Katherine's will, and they certainly didn't disappoint! As if Katherine would leave the bulk of her money to a grandson she barely knew. She was much closer to her own son, Brock, and her grand daughter, MacKenzie! And yet she makes them share 1/4 of her estate with Jill's son, Phillip, Jill's grandson, Chance, and Nina! Come on! Who could believe that? While Devon takes mostly everything? Devon already has Tucker, who is filthy rich. Why would she leave Devon almost everything when he has Tucker to take care of him financially? And he has Neil who is well off and can assist him if he ever needs help? Her own son, Brock, is practically a pauper as a minister, and her the grand daughter she always adored, MacKenzie, doesn't have anything or anyone to help her should she need it. I don't buy this fakey garbage the writers wrote. They shouldn't even be writing for Y & R! They're just ruining the show with almost every stupid storyline. They've ruined Sharon, and they continue having Victor and Jack rehash the fight for Newman Enterprises. How many times do we have to watch that over and over again???
Esther is so disrespectful to Jill I can barely stand to listen to her now that Katherine is gone. Jill would just fire her. Even though Kay gave Jill her share of the mansion, which means Jill owns the house and grounds, it doesn't mean Jill has to keep Esther on although Kay wants her to still care for the house. No one would put up with Esther's nasty comments. She's the hired help!
I'm sure Kevin's skeleton key will lead to a fortune since the writers continue to have his character leech off of Kay. And why Chloe and her offspring get anything from Katherine is beyond me. A half million dollars for college??? Come on! She's Billy's daughter, and he is an Abbott. I am sure Billy can pay for his own daughter's college!
At least, the writers made Katherine leave Murphy something! He was her spouse after all and entitled to quite a bit. In the will, Devon got her collection of records, and then it was added he got the majority of her loot! Tucker wasn't even mentioned in the will, to my recollection. Probably because he is filthy rich like Nikki and Victor, which is why they just got an honorable mention leaving them her collections.
What's pretty rotten is that Jill got half the mansion and lands, and she has to pay to upkeep it which she said will cost a fortune. Yet Kay didn't leave her a fortune! And she didn't even leave Jill the CEO position at Chancellor! Cane gets to continue running it which is ridiculous. Cane has only run a bar and held some executive positions which was fakey in itself since he never had any experience or college education! And Jill can't sell the house and lands either! How can Kay leave that as a condition in her will? That seems a bit much.
It's obvious men are the head of the writing on this soap because Cane, a man, gets to run the company, when it should be Jill! And Devon, another man, gets the bulk of the fortune instead of Kay's favorite grand daughter! Why couldn't women be the winners instead of the men always being the winners??? Because MEN write this garbage! Kay's husband and children should be the first people to get anything anyway not grandchildren. And things should be divided equally, to be fair. But since Kay wanted to leave the money to a grandchild, she would have left MacKenzie the bulk of the fortune since she was closest to Mac, and Brock isn't filthy rich like Devon's dad, Tucker.
These writers stink! I hope the network gets rid of them already. I am ready to stop watching the show I'm so sick of it, so are a lot of other people!
I too thought it was odd Devon got so much???? She was so close with Mac. Brock's relationship with his Dutchess was so sweet and gentle. It just doesn't make much sense. What about Mac's child, did she get an education fund? Giving all that to Devon is ridiculous.
