Victoria Newman came on the scene in 1983. In her younger years, Victoria had a hard time dealing with her parents divorce and was often envious of the various women who came into Victor's life, mostly Ashley Abbott. Victoria spent most of her youth in a Switzerland boarding school.
Upon her return to Genoa City, Vikki took a job in the mailroom at Newman Enterprises and soon fell in love with the older Ryan McNeil. Against her father's wishes, Victoria and Ryan eloped, but their marriage was short lived after Victoria found herself to be sexually inept due to her immaturity, and the couple soon divorced after Ryan had an affair with Nina Webster.
Victoria's next love would take her to novelist Cole Howard. Staying at the tack house, Cole had been involved with her mother, Nikki, but Victoria was able to catch his eye and the two eloped! Having a healthy sexual relationship with Cole left Victoria wondering what her relationship with Ryan could have been like. Developing a pattern, this marriage, too, was short lived due to Cole having an affair and Vikki not being able to get Ryan out of her head. Before Vikki found her way back to Ryan, she went through a miscarriage with Cole's baby after the divorce, was engaged to Neil Winters, and even found herself stalked by a crazed employee Gary Dawson!
Unfortunately, just when Victoria and Ryan realized that they were meant to be together, his ex-wife Trisha tried to shoot Vikki and ended up killing Ryan after he tried to save Vikki from the bullet on their wedding day. Throughout the years, Victoria had a few relationships, but none of them could make her fall as deeply as she did for Ryan. Vikki began throwing herself into her work at Newman, only to find that she couldn't be a part of her father's latest scandal.
Just when Victoria started a steamy affair with Michael Baldwin, she was forced to face that Michael and Victor were in cahoots to sabotage Jabot during a time when Victoria wanted to make her stand with the Newman cosmetics line. While Vikki was basking in the success of the Newman cosmetic line of what she thought was from all of her hardwork, little did she know that with the help of Michael, her father had bought Newman's rise above Jabot! After her brother Nick found out and turned Victor in to the Feds, without word, Victoria left Genoa City for a new life in Italy where she poured herself into the art world. Months and months went by until one day, Jack Abbott showed up on Vikki's doorstep in Italy offering her the CEO position at Jabot! After luring her back to GC, Victoria couldn't pass up her father's counter-offer to take a co-CEO position with her brother in the family business.
After hiring Brad Carlton, the two developed a relationship. That's not to say that they didn't have their moments. While Brad and Vikki were taking a breather, she ended up having a one-night stand with JT Hellstom! In the end, Brad and Victoria were married, which started a whole chain of events!
In 2006, Although Victor appeared to be supportive of his new son-in-law, he ended up doing a background check on Brad that stirred up many skeletons in Brad's past. Brad was forced to tell Victoria that his real name was George Kaplan and that he and his mother had been running from the law and her past for years! Through a series of events, Sharon Newman ended up kidnapped by the men from Brad's past who were looking for the Grugeon Reliquary! Although Victoria was flabbergasted by this revelation, she worked with Brad and others to save Sharon, but got more than she bargained for after witnessing Brad kill the kidnappers!
Although there were a few select people, Victor Newman included, who knew about Brad's past, Victoria stood by him as they hunted down the people who were threatening their family.
When things went south with Brad, Victoria had a fling with J.T. Hellstrom. She wound up pregnant and unsure of which man was the father. Victoria became a victim of the explosion at Clear Springs and ended up in a coma with her family divided over whether to save her or her unborn child. Ultimately, both were saved, and J.T. was proven to be the father. She married her lover, and they moved into a house on the Newman Ranch.
Victoria's best friend came to town, but her happiness at this development was short-lived, as Sabrina wound up marrying her father! Victoria was angry at them both, and didn't reconcile with her father and Sabrina until she was injured in a car accident and died. Victoria tried to be there for her mourning father and help run his company when he disappeared. After his return, she ran Newman with him, and divorced JT, after her affair with Deacon Sharpe set them on a course for disaster.
Victoria began dating Billy Abbott after rescuing from himself on New Year's Eve. They decided to get married against her father's wishes. She became pregnant with Billy's child, but after Victor had her arrested on her wedding day, she argued with him and lost the baby. Victoria then decided to join Abby in suing Victor.
Victoria learned she would likely not be able to have another baby, so Billy took matters into his own hands. He illegally adopted a baby, unaware she really belonged to Daisy Carter and Daniel Romalotti. They named her Lucy.
Meanwhile, Victoria and Abby were joined by Nick in their lawsuit against Victor, who made a deal with Adam. Adam lied during the trial and the judge awarded Abby, Victoria, and Nick five hundred million dollars each. Adam was arrested for perjury. Victoria and Nick tried to make amends, but Victor wasn’t interested. Nick and Victoria ran Beauty of Nature together. In retaliation, Victor took Newman Enterprises public and Katherine blamed his children, Victoria included.
Daniel got DNA proof that Lucy was his daughter and worked with Billy to prevent Jana from finding out. Deranged Jana kidnapped Delia and Lucy in an effort to get Kevin back. When they were found safe, Billy finally told Victoria about how he acquired Lucy and that Daniel and Daisy were her real parents. But he promised Lucy would always be theirs.
When Phyllis learned that Lucy was her granddaughter she wanted her with family despite the fear it would make Daisy return. Phyllis agreed to keep quiet, but Chloe used the info to sue Billy for custody of Delia, which shined a light on the illegal adoption. Daniel decided to let Billy and Victoria legally adopt Lucy. Furious, Phyllis wrote a blog about it, which got her fired from Restless Style but brought Daisy back – her ultimate goal. Daisy was given back her rights and Phyllis got temporary custody of Lucy. Billy moved out from guilt. He began gambling and drinking and sold Restless Style to Nick. After Billy lost custody of Delia because of Victor’s manipulations, he went home to Victoria, but soon disappeared again.
Victor forgave Victoria for the lawsuit and she returned as COO.
When Delia was diagnosed with leukemia and needed a bone marrow transplant. Victoria and Jack searched for Billy, but Victor found him first and used Delia’s illness to get Billy to agree to never see Victoria again. He agreed and a doctor took bone marrow from Billy and told everyone it was Kevin’s.
After being unable to reach Billy, Victoria searched for him with Jill in Myanmar, and the two had to be rescued by Cane when they got in trouble. Victoria was bumped from a connecting flight as the three returned home and she was reunited with Billy in an airport bar. They made love and he confessed he was the donor for Delia. Victoria resigned from Newman Enterprises and Nick sold Restless Style back to Billy.
When Kevin backed out of his Christmas Eve wedding to Chloe, Billy and Victoria took their place and were remarried. Chelsea arrived in town claiming Billy had raped her in Myanmar and now she was pregnant. Billy arranged a DNA test, and it proved he was the father. Chelsea admitted they had consensual sex and moved into the apartment behind after agreeing to let Victoria and Billy raise the baby. Chelsea’s mother Anita arrived to use the baby to con Victoria and her family out of money.
Chelsea confided in Victoria that Victor promised her Billy if she could break up his marriage, but Chelsea signed papers assuring them the child.
Genevieve hired Victoria to be CEO of Beauty of Nature and Victor accused her of just trying to get back at him. But when Victoria returned from a business trip to find Chelsea missing, she went to Victor for help in the search. She used his helicopter and found Chelsea after she had given birth with Adam’s help in a cabin. Chelsea signed her rights over to Billy and Victoria and they named him Johnny.
Victoria became interim CEO at Newman Enterprises when Victor was missing in L.A. and Sharon was removed for her mental instability. Victoria rehired Nick and stock value rose. It soon plummeted when word spread that Victor died in an explosion. Victor returned however, and asked Victoria to stay on in the company, promising not to interfere in her marriage to Billy. She agreed but was fired anyway when Jack and Tucker took over the company.
While in Miami on business, Victoria was kidnapped by a bitter loan shark of Billy’s. She was rescued by Nick and Billy. She was traumatized but slowly let Billy back in.
At Victor and Nikki’s wedding, an explosion put Adam in a coma. Victoria decided life was too short. She wanted to try for another baby and began hormone therapy. When Adam woke from his coma, Victor announced he would return to the business. Victoria decided to return as well, promising Victor she could juggle being nice to Adam and a possible pregnancy. Instead, she had Adam investigated, but Adam had her fed false information. Victoria hired someone else, but Billy got her to back off and she quit Newman to focus on family.
When Billy began gambling again, Victoria thought he was cheating and left. But Billy got help and they were able to reconcile. Victor hired Victoria back to handle the merger on Newman and Chancellor.
On Halloween 2013 Billy stopped to pick up ice cream after Delia’s school play, and left her and her new puppy Dash in the car. Delia was hit by a car after she let the dog out to relieve himself and chased after him. Billy found Delia on the road she and she died in the hospital. Victoria struggled to give a broken Billy comfort in the aftermath.

In Sage's room at the club, Nick tries to talk Sage out of going to the party. She's insistent. Downstairs, Victor orders Tobias to leave. Ashley reminds him that she threatened to have him arrested. Tobias nonchalantly grabs a drink. Yack informs him they don't need any spies. Tobias threatens to tell the guests all of Victor's secrets. When he's commanded to leave, Tobias jumps on the bar and rants about them being 'rich, entitled, monsters'. Ashley declares that he's useless. Neil drags him off the bar and then bickers with Billy, who just wants to dump the interloper in a car. After Billy drags him out, Jack thanks him. Nikki sneaks drinks. Kyle and Summer admit to Yack and Phyllis that they caught Tobias spying on them at Crimson Lights. Abby looks uncomfortable as they discuss this. When her friends approach her, they discuss whether or not Tobias has something to do with the killer. Yack glares over at them. Meanwhile, Victoria and Billy talk about how nice it is to work together again. She spots her brother and Sage walking in. Nick introduces her to his parents. Noah arrives in time to hear the latest mention of the baby. They fill him in and toast. Nikki announces that she doesn't drink and heads off to powder her nose. She bumps into Dylan on the way and starts complaining to him about how her sons are saddling themselves with awful women. Sharon pops up, who refuses to argue on the anniversary of Cassie's death. She advises Nikki not to antagonize Sage while she's pregnant. Nikki accuses her of taking advantage of the family and strides off. Across the room, Sage assures Victor that she's not a gold digger. She walked out on Gabriel's money and she's confident that Nick will be a good father. Sirens start to ring. Lily comes in and says there has been an accident involving a party guest. It was Tobias. Kyle, Abby and Summer decide to run over to the hospital to see if he's doped up enough to spill the truth. Nikki returns. Victor wonders if she's been drinking and she starts slurring her insults of the mustache. She complains about how dirty she feels for following Victor's orders and blames him for driving Tobias over the edge. She storms out and heads to the roof. Neil trails after and finds her getting plastered with some dude. She teases Neil about walking into the party with his son's ex. Neil takes her aside and she tells him that Victor is not winning tonight, she is. Neil asks the dude to step off and gets threatening. Meanwhile, Nick brings Sage back to her room. He advises her to 'duck and cover' when it comes to his dad. They make out. Back downstairs, Phyllis notices that Yack has gone missing. By the bar, Billy and Victoria discuss the pregnancy and start brainstorming their new project. When they stroll upstairs, they catch Neil punching the guy who was with Nikki.
At the lab, Yack instructs his family to come to the party today. Billy still isn't thrilled by the merger. Neither is Victoria. She thinks his 'happy-happy-joy-joy' event is forced. Yack thinks today is the perfect opportunity to show a united front. The doubters relent and Yack putters off. Victoria follows him into the hall. She wants to reverse his choice to support Chelsea. He defends his decision on business grounds and asks her to follow his lead. Back in the lab, Abby tells Ben how strained things are with Ashley. Down in Victoria's office, she and Billy discuss how the party might pan out.
At the club, Lily fusses and Phyllis hopes that no one strangles anyone else today. Lily spots Hilary and Devon strolling in. She starts lecturing them. They decide to leave. When Lily brings up Rose, Hilary nearly clobbers her. Devon holds her back. He hopes that everyone will come to accept his relationship. Lily thinks he's delusional. Later, Victor stands by the entrance to greet guests. Yack is perplexed to see him fawning over Ben. Victor strolls over to his daughter. She's still miffed about his promoting Gabriel. He advises her to get along with him. Across the room, Phyllis and Nikki worry about Jack. Nikki's children join them. Before Nick can announce his news, they spot Neil walking in with Gwen and their jaws drop. Lily wonders what her father is up to. He tells her that he actually likes Gwen. Hilary approaches Gwen and warns her that Neil has been acting out. Gwen doubts she sincerely gives a damn and tells Devon and Hilary that they disgust her. Neil gets between them all and Gwen decides it's time for her to go. Meanwhile, Ben and Ashley have an awkward conversation. She admits that she developed feelings for him. That doesn't make sense to the doctor. Ash asks him not to say anything to Abby. When he returns to Abby's side, he awkwardly glosses over what Ash said and then makes an excuse to leave. Back across the room, Nick tells his family that he and Sage are having a baby. "It's a blessing," he insists. Sharon arrives with Dylan. When she wanders off, his mom approaches him and suggests that he doesn't need to be spending time with Sharon anymore. He informs her that things are over with Avery and he's with Sharon now. That doesn't go over well. He walks off to see Sharon. Nikki grabs a drink. As someone spies on the guests, Yack calls everyone together to talk about the merger of the families. He reminds everyone that it's the anniversary of Cassie's death and announces that he is funding a pediatric wing dedicated to her. Nick and Sharon thank him. The watcher creeps out and straight over to Victor. "You should not be here," Victor says.
