    Shelia Carter first appeared in Genoa City in 1990 as a nurse working at Memorial. Since the first moment she laid eyes on Dr. Scott Grainger, Shelia has been terrorizing Lauren Fenmore! After drugging Scott, Lauren's husband, 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 Shelia's mother threatened to tell Lauren the truth, Shelia kidnapped Lauren and held her and her mother in a cabin. When the truth finally 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.

    On the run from the law, trying to start a life somewhere new, Shelia took off for LA and fell in love with Eric Forrester of Forrester Fashions. Although she managed to keep her identity hidden, Lauren showed up in LA to attend Eric and Shelia's wedding! Although Lauren was convinced to keep quiet for a while, Shelia's identity came out and she went on to cause much harm to those living the Bold and the Beautiful life and in her capture escaped prison twice!

    In 2005, Shelia returned to GC in disguise as a student who Scotty (Lauren's son) 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 had 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.

    In October 2006, Paul found out that Shelia had plastic surgery to look like Phyllis Abbott. Since Paul had just seen the 'real' Phyllis, he became suspicious when he saw the Phyllis look-alike out buying baby clothes. To his surprise, he followed her to a warehouse to see that she had a nursery set up behind a makeshift cell! Paul turned the tables on Shelia and locked her in what she would've used to kidnap Lauren and baby Fen!

    Although Paul told everyone that he had DNA proof that Shelia had died, Lauren's husband Michael followed Paul to the warehouse one day and now knows that Shelia lives on! However, Shelia managed to escape after shooting Detective Maggie Sullivan and took Phyllis, Summer and Lauren's son Fen hostage! Enemies of Shelia Carter better watch out, because she has proven, repeatedly, to be a woman of many resources!
