Colleen Carlton's parents divorced when she was young, and she was raised in New York City by her mother Traci and stepfather Steve. Although her father Brad visited when he could, he and Colleen didn't become close until her teenage years. Colleen possessed the making of a talented dancer, but went through a rebellious stage of skipping school and experimenting with marijuana. Her mother soon threatened to send Colleen to boarding school, but her grandfather suggested that she move to Genoa City to live with him.
While under the strict Abbott household, Colleen managed to score some pot and continued to get stoned. However, after having a close call while babysitting her sister Abby, stoned, Colleen gave up the drugs for good. Colleen began to concentrate on school and spent the summer with the Glow by Jabot kids where she met and fell for JT Hellstom. Being that JT was known as a party guy with a fast reputation, Colleen's family forbad her to see him. Against her parent's wishes, Colleen and JT continued seeing each other and fell in love. When Colleen's mother found out, she threatened to take her back to New York and have JT arrested! Brad stood up to the plate and asserted his parental rights and promised Traci that he'd watch over Colleen if she let her stay.
Colleen moved in with her father and eventually Brad was convinced that JT had changed and that he really loved his daughter. However, just when Colleen and JT were granted the freedom to be together, JT found himself seduced by Brittany Hodges' mother, Anita, and cheated on Colleen! When she found out, Colleen's heart was broken but she eventually forgave JT.
Colleen found herself in hot water when she started badmouthing her best friend Lily's boyfriend Kevin Fisher. After Lily broke up with Kevin, he blamed Colleen. Kevin went on to lure Colleen into Gina's restaurant, locked her in a cooler, then torched the place! Fortunately, JT found her and saved Colleen in the knick of time. Although Kevin was never charged, Colleen still believes in his guilt to this day!
After a record promoter heard JT singing to Colleen at Crimson Lights, he was offered a record contract and took off to LA. Colleen wanted to support him and surprised him with a visit to his first press conference. Colleen was heartbroken after she heard JT tell reporters that he was single, and didn't buy it when he told her that he was instructed to say that. Colleen left LA and returned to GC. Shortly after, she ended things with JT and moved back to NY. Although JT gave up his music career for her, Colleen went on a book tour with her mom in Europe and later enrolled in NYU.
In 2006, with her family in turmoil over the murder of Tom Fisher, Colleen moved back to Genoa City and was devastated after the death of her grandfather. Although JT was involved with Mackenzie Browning, Colleen won her him back and shortly after moved into the loft with JT.
Colleen and JT's relationship has since been a bumpy ride. Working as a PI for Paul Williams, JT uncovered the fact that Colleen's father Brad was in reality George Kaplan! Colleen soon learned that Brad's mother Rebecca spent time in a concentration camp and as a young boy, he and Rebecca came home to find their family murdered! After Rebecca moved to Genoa City, she told Colleen of all the pieces of stolen art that she had dealt with while in the camps. Colleen shared in her grandmother's interest and went on to take an art class at GCU headed up by Professor Adrian Korbel.
As time went by, Colleen found it unbearable to deal with the secrecy of JT's job. After becoming Adrian's research assistant, Colleen began having feelings and spending more and more time with the professor. Then one night, while stranded at the college during the December 2006 ice storm, Colleen gave into her feelings and she and Adrian made love!
Although trying to fight her feelings for Adrian, Colleen is still drawn to him and his bed! Colleen's willpower has failed before and it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt again!

Amber comes into Crimson Lights and runs into Daniel. Awkwardness ensues. Amber tries to place an order with Colleen who ignores her and asks Daniel what he'd like. Cane and Lily approach and they all discuss Sabrina's sudden death and how creepy David turned out to be. Chloe comes running in and Cane rolls his eyes. She asks Daniel to sit down with her and do some magazine stuff, and proceeds to make a show about having morning sickness to ensure that everyone knows she is pregnant. The group dissolves into a snarky jab-fest. As Chloe goes to sit with Daniel, Kevin confides in Amber that Daniel isn't very happy with his decision not to be with her - he sure isn't sleeping well! Jana wanders over and talks to Amber about planning Sabrina's funeral. As they look across the room at Daniel, Amber remarks that it seems he'll never be able to forgive her. Daniel suddenly gets up from the table - he is frustrated with Chloe's inability to focus - and walks over to where Lily is sitting by herself. "Want some company?" He sits and Lily asks about he and Amber. She asks if he is still in love with her. His silence confirms that he is. She tries to reassure him by reminding him that you do get over the pain - they did. She tells him though, that if he can't get over Amber - maybe he shouldn't! Cane heads back to the table, but Chloe jumps in his path, telling him that Lily ripped up an ultrasound photo of their unborn baby. She claims this is proof that Lily suspects it's his child - otherwise she wouldn't be so upset. Cane goes and sits down with Lily and they have a tense discussion. Colleen comes over and asks if they want her to kick Chloe out. Lily says not to bother. Devon enters and Chloe intercepts him. She makes sure he knows that she is carrying Cane's baby. Nearby, Jana, still grieving Sabrina's sudden death, whispers to Daniel that he shouldn't waste any time if he loves Amber - he may not have as much time as he thinks! Daniel looks over at Amber and ponders. Lily suddenly gets up from her seat and approaches Chloe. She proposes that if she is really carrying Cane's child, then she won't mind taking a DNA test to prove it! Devon and Cane get into the conversation and they all issue the DNA challenge to Chloe!
Adrian heads into Crimson Lights and sits down with Amber at the counter. He tells her all about how bummed he is about the 'hack job' with his name on it written about Sabrina. She says he could always go back to teaching if he is disillusioned. He tells her he has decided to leave town. He expresses appreciation for her friendship, and they share a quick hug. Colleen makes a beeline for Daniel's table and as they watch the hug, she asks him on a date. He agrees.
At Crimson lights, Jana reads the article on Sabrina aloud and is shocked. Kevin, Colleen and the others are amazed by how trashy is sounds. Colleen thinks Adrian would never write anything like this. Daniel says otherwise.
Amber walks into Crimson Lights for a caramel cappuccino. Daniel runs up to her and tells her that Adrian just trashed Sabrina. "That guy is one piece of work," he says, rubbing it in. Meanwhile, Colleen insists to her father that the article doesn't seem like something Adrian would write. Brad is sure it's exactly the kind of things he would do. He's also sure that there are some very outraged people out there right now.
