    Throwback Thursday Y&R Poll: Dina Abbott Mergeron.

    Thursday, March 06 2014

    Surprise, she's back!

    In this week's "The Young And The Restless" Throwback Thursday takes readers back to the early 1980s when Dina Abbott Mergeron returned to Genoa City…

    Billy and Victoria's marriage is currently in trouble. Years ago, his father John Abbott lost a wife and almost lost his life due to her reappearance. John and Dina ran in the same circle throughout high school and carried on with the group of close friends thereafter. John and Dina soon married and started a family having had Jack, Ashley and Traci. Once the kids became adolescents their lives took a turn for the worse.

    Dina ran off, left her family and remarried. John was heartbroken and did his best to raise his children with the help of their family maid Mamie Johnson. After Jack returned from Vietnam, as well as with an MBA from Harvard, he joined his father and Ashley to help run the family business. John soon suffered one heart attack due to a business decision Jack made without his consent and almost a second one when Dina resurfaced in town.

    Do you who remember why Dina initially returned? Vote in our "Y&R" poll below.

    I agree - they need to quit showing the fake houses -none of them look anything like e have all imagined they live. I'm sure they are copying The Bold and The Beautiful as they show scenery after every commercial break also and have been for years - but they show the good stuff! Quit being a copy cat!
