    Wasted Effort.

    Monday, April 16 2012
    The Adam rescue story spreads, Jack dumps Genevieve, and Sharon visits Chelsea.

    In Vegas, Genevieve asks Victor is he's come to give her away. Victor chuckles. He wants to talk business. They banter. Gen says if he bought Beauty of Nature there would be no room for her input. Victor says she could run it and Newman Cosmetics; Nick and Sharon would answer to her. He produces a deal memo. Genevieve says she's sorry - she's marrying Jack.

    In the Vegas elevator, Nikki and Jack make-out. Nikki's butt hits the emergency button. They deal with the security guard, and head to her room to bicker about her motives for coming. Jack leaves, despite Nikki's plea for him not to marry Genevieve. Outside Nikki's room, she runs into Victor. He wants to talk.

    At the hospital, Victoria tells Chelsea that Adam is lying about rescuing her - that's what he does. Chelsea informs Vikki that she remembers everything, but Adam had asked her to keep quiet. Chelsea tells Victoria she should get over herself and thank him! Victoria says she's grateful to whoever saved Chelsea, and walks off. Chelsea's furious. Adam's tells Chelsea it's a wasted effort to try to get Victoria to believe this.

    At Restless Style, Ricky and Phyllis debate about printing a story on Chelsea's rescue. Billy arrives. Phyllis tells him they need to address the Chelsea situation. Billy says they're not publishing a word about his son. He gets heated, and then explains that the adoption isn't final yet - he doesn't want anything messing with that - especially Phyllis. Later, Phyllis asks Ricky if he's made progress with Daisy - he needs to get dirt before the hearing. Victoria arrives and tells the story about Adam. She says she doesn't believe it. Phyllis muses it's a good story. Billy reminds Phyllis that she knows better.

    Jack joins Genevieve in her suite. She tells him she doesn't expect immediate forgiveness, but she is so looking forward to a real marriage. Gen gushes that he's a good man, and she believes they can be truly happy together. Taken aback, Jack admits he's not there, and doesn't think he ever will be. He can't do this. She orders him out and dissolved into tears.

    In Victor's suite, he and Nikki argue about Billy. She says she set him up because he can't stand being wrong about anybody. Nikki says he chose anger and self-righteousness over his family. Victor scoffs that he forgave his kids after the lawsuit, but Victoria married that bum! Nikki loves him, but this is more than she can stand. He orders her out.

    Back at the hospital, Billy and Vikki talk about what to do about Adam. Vikki says she should probably apologize and thank him. Billy refuses to be outclassed by Adam Newman.

    At the Club, Nick and Sharon are excited about kicking off their new cosmetics line. Nick tries unsuccessfully to reach Victor. A reporter asks Nick for a comment about his new family member. Nick has no comment. Phyllis arrives. They all discuss Adam being Chelsea's rescuer. Phyllis says if it were true, he would have told Sharon. Sharon defends him. Nick explains that Sharon believes Adam's had an epiphany at the farm. Suddenly, Adam appears. They approach and ask if it's true. Adam says, "Yes." Nick says Chelsea's no more credible than he is. Adam says Nick will believe what he wants anyway, and leaves. Sharon smiles. Phyllis says she and Nick will always view him skeptically.

    Back in Vegas, Nikki opens her door thinking it's Victor, but it's Jack. He tells her he couldn't go through with the wedding - he's lost Beauty of Nature. Nikki says he's held onto something more important. She fells it's ironic that she left Victor because he couldn't be honest. They end up kissing again and make love.

    Genevieve goes to Victor's suite with a bottle of champagne. Victor muses, "Well, I'll be damned." She signs his offer and says he won. Victor signs and they make love. After, Victor gets out of bed and thinks about Nikki.

    Sharon enters Chelsea's room and introduces herself. She asks for details about the rescue. Chelsea says if she's hoping it's not true she'll be disappointed. Sharon says she'll be thrilled if it's true. Chelsea says if she hadn't of remembered, Adam never would have told her. She says that everyone will have to accept the truth.

    At Crimson Lights, Adam takes a call from Billy asking him to come by the hospital. Adam says it's not necessary. Victoria gets on and says he can see the baby. Adam says he'll come. When he arrives, Vikki apologizes for overreacting and lets Adam hold the baby.

    Ricky finds Nick and Phyllis at Crimson Lights. Phyllis tells him they're not running the story. Nick says the Inquisitor just posted it. Ricky has disappeared. Phyllis says she knows who's behind it.

    Genoa City Spoilers for Tomorrow on The Young and the Restless:

    Ricky says to Phyllis, "Good morning Ms. Editor!" Phyllis tells him to drop the smile and explain himself.

    Chloe says to Katherine, "He does have a point about Chelsea; big mistake to trust her."

    Victoria opens her door to Genevieve. Victor is behind her, and says, "Hello Sweetheart."

    Unbelieveable that I would be the first one to comment.

    I typed a comment and it disappeared. It's just as well because I wasn't nice about the mistakes made in this update. Does anyone proof-read this before it is on the site?

    If I hit a nerve, I will not apologize for the lack of professionalism of errors in English.

    Adam: The only people who believe you are Chelsea and Sharon. You burned too many bridges and hurt too many people. Can't say I blame them.

    Musical beds again, huh? Jack and Nikki, then Victor and Genevieve. Victor gets up and thinks of Nikki. Did old Victor have sex with Genevieve in gratitude for letting him buy his company back?

    Poor Jack! No bride and no BofN!! The only good thing was sex with Nikki curling up his toes. LOL We all tried to warn you, but you wanted it ALL.

    cowboys fan: Hurry and get dressed so you can comfort him after Nikki goes back to Victor.

    It's high time Victoria gets her nose out of the air. She DOES owe both Adam and Chelsea a BIG APOLOGY.

    BH Ricky is at it again. Phyllis needs to hire Paul to follow his no-good son who is nothing but a destructive force in GC. Anything for a story must be his mantra. Is he going to tell Phyllis,"Oops, I Did It Again?"

    Posted by cowboys fan at Friday, April 13 2012 06:28 PM

    Wow! I'm proud of my Jackie. But Nikki is only with him because at the moment she is mad at Victor. I'm tired of Jack marrying or being with women that are secretly in love with a Newman.

    I wonder how many buttons did Nikki's butt push.

    Sometimes I get so mad at Victoria the way she treats Adam. Makes me wish Chelsea would take her baby back. She refuses to believe that Adam saved her baby's life.

    Well there that wench goes again. Broomhilda is going to make Billy lose a second child because of her. Billy needs to remind her just who owns the magazine. She acts like she run things over there. I can't wait for Ricky to betray her arse.

    Poor Genevieve, she really did want to marry Jack. I just knew she was up to no good. I do believe she would have given him Beauty of Nature.

    Victor, shut up. You can't tell folks who to marry. Victoria didn't like you marrying her best friend but you did it anyway. And don't forget, you married an Abbott. I can't wait for him to find out Jack and Nikki are together. Look at Jack in bed with Nikki. He might be paralyzed by he still got moves.

    Listen to horny Nick trying to question someone's credibility. Now someone tell me, has he ever been faithful in his relationships. And his grandma girlfriend is trying to be skeptical. Like she can be trusted. Hurry up Christine and Danny and come blow this skank out the water.

    Ok, forget what I said about Victoria in my earlier paragraph. She let Adam see the baby and apologized to him. We're friends again. I think they should make him the godfather. Ok, I now I'm stretching it a bit.

    Well Tucker, you didn't get Beauty of Nature after all.

    How disappointing. I really wanted Jack and Genevive to get married and watch them make it. I am disappointed that Kyle is coming back so much older so quickly. There will be trouble between them and Nikki will go crying to Victor. I would rather have seen Victoria get BofN. i think Genevive made a mistake selling it to Victor. I hope these two do not get married also.

    For: "Wasted Effort." Monday, April 16, 2012

    Hi All!

    Unbelieveable Jack Couldn't Marry Genevieve, So He Slept With Nikki & Genevieve Slept With Victor, Sr.!

    Geese talk about switch hitting bed lanes @ a fast pace without stopping for a refueling change! lol!

    Perhaps Nikki said it best "there's no sense in marrying someone if they're going to be miserable in a loveless marriage for the rest of their lives together"!

    Well Nikki my dear, you've haven't learned that lesson in so many years either! lol!

    Jack may have lost Beauty Of Nature, but not his will to live! lol!

    Wow Genevieve got her some Victor Newman, she's never been done like that before! lol!

    Vikki Let's Adam Hold Baby "John Abbott" !

    Well Vikki dear, you did a good thing by allowing your brother Adam see and hold his baby nephew John!
    Gilt ridden sister, she may be!

    I enjoy Billy bossing old Red Headed Granny around at work, too bad BH Ricky sold the story to Restless Style's competition!

    Ha Ha!! The look on Phyllas's face when Dickolas follows The Lovely Sharon out is PRICELESS!

    Jack dumped Genevieve and Nikki dumped TGVN, now Genny has TGVN right where she wants him!

    Was Cracker Jack able to get something straight between himself and Nikki

    Hi Everyone!

    Well, it's gereatric love in the afternoon in Vegas! UGH! MY EYES! MY EYES! MY EYES! Scenes like that are best left to the younger actors.

    I REALLY don't understand why RS picks and chooses the stories they are going to run. Isn't it a magazine that is supposed to make money? They did the same thing with Diane's murder when Dickolust ran it. Every other paper was running the story, but RS decided that they weren't going to run it! I'm not saying I think Phylthy is right! (Heven forbid!) But there should be something in the rag about any news worthy story; unfortunately all the news worthy stories involve people in GC! LOL

    I know I've been up all night trying to gather receipts for taxes, yes, I'm one of those procrastinators (sp) So I thought the inability to comprehend this entire update fell (not fill, Phill or feel) on my shoulders but after struggling to get thru the darn thing 3 additional times, I see it's not me nor my lack of sleep.

    Who's writing this crap?


    Posted by MsChief at Sunday, April 15 2012 04:52 AM

    And the real wasted effort, well nevermind.

    I guess Ricky struck again.

    At least I will get to hear Victor say 2 of my favorite lines:

    Hello Sweetheart

    and Well I'll be damned.....I love to hear him say that.
