    Throwback Thursday Y&R Poll: Ashley Abbott's Real Father.

    Thursday, August 01 2013

    Davidson (Apega/
    A tale of two fathers.

    In this week's Throwback Thursday takes readers back to the early 1980s when Ashley Abbott found out that John Abbott wasn't her real father…

    Phyllis, who's currently unconscious, is the only person who knows that Nick is really Summer's father and that Sharon tampered with the paternity test results to prove otherwise. There's no telling how long until, if ever, the truth of Summer's real parentage will come out. Do you have any guesses? Years ago, it took Ashley years before she found out that John Abbott wasn't her biological father. Former tennis pro Brent Davis returned to Genoa City and had an affair with Katherine Chancellor. When word came that he was dying, Brent wanted to reach out to Ashley and tell her that he was in fact her biological father, having had an affair with her mother Dina. Though Dina and Katherine tried to talk Brent out of revealing the truth, he told Ashley, who ended up in shock and missing with no memory of her life.

    A search began for Ashley, which led to a man locating her and trying to get rich quick by offering a ransom for her whereabouts. Victor managed to locate Ashley and brought her back to his ranch in order for her to get the help she needed. Once Ashley was back to her old self, she forgave Brent before he died but never wanted John to find out the truth. Victor, Katherine, Dina, Jack and Jill all worked to keep the secret, and John died believing that Ashley was his daughter.

    Do you remember where Victor found Ashley? Vote below.

    I CANNOT stand Summer. Let her go back to Europe with Daniel and Phyllis. Enough of her face already. Fen is a spoiled little rich kid who has life at his fingertips...send him to rehab or a detention home. Lily, have no words except BORING! The redhead who hooked up with Adam (can't remember her name) is lame as well. When will this drama become a drama once again?? I don't watch anymore, just keep it on while at my PC, that's more exiting @ this point!!

    So, so tired of Sharon getting away with dirty business with the excuse of mental illness. Time to send her to prison or a brothel, (she has had affairs with more men than Phyllis). Give Nick a dose of smart pills. He is SO south of dumb it can't be measured. Can't Noah finally see the truth about Sharon and stop defending her. Expect to see Austin arise from the fake dead and reveal his dirty expose'.

    I'M so tired of Sharon getting blamed for everything, she did not push Phyllis down the stairs and Nick cheated on her several times, Phyllis has gotten away with a lot right up there with Victor, now the writers are making Sharon the scapegoat,just look at all the things Victor and Phyllis have done, and everyone thinks their saints.
