Lauren Fenmore, daughter of that late rich Neil Fenmore of Fenmore Department stores, appeared in Genoa City in 1983. Although she and her father were very close, Lauren's mother Joanna left her as a child and only occasionally has shown up in GC over the years. As a teen, Lauren sang in Danny Romalotti's band along with her rival Traci Abbott, then went on to fall in love and marry Detective Paul Williams.
Despite Paul's mother Mary's interference, the two remained happy until a crazed man named Sean whose main purpose was to make Paul believe that he and Lauren were having an affair stalked Lauren. The plan worked and Paul divorced Lauren, but later found out the truth after rescuing Lauren from Sean! However, though they tried, Lauren and Paul never reconciled. Lauren's father soon passed away and she took over the Fenmore department store empire.
Lauren's life became the obsession of another crazy person, Shelia Carter, after marrying Dr. Scott Grainger. After drugging Scott, he and Shelia had sex and she became pregnant. Scott divorced Lauren out of obligation, then found out that Lauren was pregnant too! Unbeknownst to anyone, Shelia had a miscarriage, but was determined to still have Scott's child. Shelia then bought a child on the black market and switched it with Lauren's baby! Lauren's baby, Dillon, ended up dying of meningitis and Shelia went on to raise Lauren's real child Scotty!
After the truth came out, Shelia tried to kill Lauren, but in the end Lauren and Scott were reunited with their child, leaving everyone to believe that Shelia had died in a fire. While traveling to Los Angeles, Lauren found herself facing a ghost after attending her good friend Eric Forrester's wedding and finding his bride to be Shelia! Through a series of events, Scott came down with a mysterious disease and managed to convince Lauren that Shelia had changed. Scott died and Lauren moved to LA to work with Spectra Fashions to promote her new clothing line.
While in LA, Lauren had an affair with Psychiatrist James Warrick during a time when he had Shelia committed to a mental institution for Eric Forrester! After his divorce from Shelia, Lauren and Eric had a brief affair but found themselves at the hands of a manic after their plane crashed on their way back from Venice. In the end, the maniac was killed and Lauren and Eric went their separate ways.
For years, Lauren was content to travel the world while keeping together the Fenmore Empire. With Scotty tucked safely away in boarding school, Lauren moved back to Genoa City in 2001 and partnered up with Jabot to open the Glow by Jabot Boutique. Although Lauren would have liked to reconcile with her ex-husband Paul Williams, she found herself at the center of another obsessed person, Kevin Fisher, who claimed to love Lauren. In an attempt to help Kevin through his emotional state, Lauren fell for and married his brother Michael Baldwin.
When Lauren's son Scotty, now an adult, showed up in Genoa City to help plan his mother's wedding, Lauren became worried for his safety after finding out that Shelia escaped the mental hospital! Soon Shelia returned to GC in disguise as a student who Scotty was tutoring and convinced Scotty to write her memoirs. During their time spent on Scotty's new book venture, Shelia managed to poison Lauren and even worked with Michael's stepfather Tom Fisher to kidnap Lauren on her and Michael's honeymoon!
While everyone had thought Lauren died in an explosion during her and Michael's honeymoon, Tom Fisher had turned the tables on Shelia and held both her and Lauren hostage! Amazingly, Shelia and Lauren had worked together to try to escape Tom's hold, but in the end failed. After Scotty had found out that his co-author partner was a fake and later found out and realized that the story for their novel was in fact a horror replica of his mother's life, Paul Williams was able to track Lauren and Shelia down in an old abandoned farmhouse and save Lauren's life. However, once again, Shelia escaped.
After Lauren was reunited with Michael, she became pregnant but lived in fear that Shelia would come back and harm her and her child. However, Paul came forward with evidence that Shelia had undergone surgery to look exactly like Phyllis Abbott, but ended up dying somewhere along the line. In 2006, after Lauren gave birth to baby Fenmore, she experienced panic attacks and refused to leave the apartment due to the hidden fear for her child's life!
Just when she finally started letting her guard down, Lauren found out that Paul and Michael were holding Shelia, with the face of Phyllis, in a cell! However, Lauren's terror had just begun because Shelia went on the run with Fen, Summer, and Phyllis Newman in her evil clutches!
After Sheila was dead, Lauren settled in to her life with Michael and their son. Lauren lived relatively happily until she was kidnapped by Sheila's sister, who had undergone surgery to look exactly like Lauren! Sara and her kids, Ryder and Daisy, held Lauren and her sister-in-law, Jana, captive. After they were rescued by their husbands, Lauren went through a period of post-traumatic stress. She no sooner recovered from that ordeal when she learned that Jill Foster is her long lost half-sister. Lauren and Jill have made peace and share Fenmore's Boutique.

She takes his money and stops in the corridor to tell him to call if he wants her services again. Lily hears and calls the police. She goes and tells Lauren and Cane. Michael appears in cuffs; he's under arrest for solicitation. Lauren will meet Michael at the station. Once alone, Cane explains to Lily what's been going on with the Baldwins. He wishes he could help Lauren. Cane exits. Devon appears. Lily tells him her husband cares more about Lauren's marriage than theirs. She says it's going beyond a work relationship and remarks that Lauren has a history. Devon assures her Cane wouldn't cheat.
At the station, Lauren has paid Michael's bail and asks him what the hell happened last night. He says he paid a hooker to have sex with him. Lauren can't understand it. Michael says he turned to Felicity because she had no expectations. Lauren shouts that she still loves him and he had sex with some stranger over her. Later, Cane finds Felicity the prostitute and questions her about Michael. He learns all they did was talk about how much he loves his wife. Cane calls Michael - they need to talk, now.
Lauren returns to the Club and sits with Lily. She tells him she bailed Michael out. Lily's sorry about what happened. Lauren asks for Cane - they need to work. Lily thought he went looking for her. Lauren says he's been a God-send. In Devon's suite, Hilary is sorry she stood him up for lunch. She ran into Neil and knows he'll never accept this - they should be friends. Devon doesn't want to just be her friend. They kiss.
At the Club, Cane tells Lauren that Michael needs to hit rock bottom before he comes to his senses. Lily looks on as he comforts her. In Devon's suite, he makes love to Hilary.
