Though we didn’t have the impression that Finn’s father was so rich that his stacks of cash would only fit in Fort Knox, we could easily imagine Sheila holding another dirty little secret over his head in order to keep him doing her bidding.
Although Sheila wasn’t on great terms with her former husband the last time they crossed paths — blackmail tends to sour an interaction! — he has always had a soft spot for her. Does he have the money or clout to help her, though?
It’s been decades since Sheila had a baby with Ridge’s biological father. Who’s to say that, despite what common sense would dictate, they haven’t hooked up again off screen? Or she could be extorting him as she has so many others.
Before Scott died on Young & Restless, he encouraged wife Lauren to forgive Sheila for her crimes. So maybe when his father Jim passed away, he tasked his attorney with seeing that poor, misunderstood Sheila was taken care of?
Supposedly, Sheila’s father is deceased. But what if he is only, as she has so often been, “deceased”? And in a cuckoo ploy to make up for the fact that he was the crappiest of crap parents, he keeps refilling his little girl’s piggy bank?
There’s no love lost between Sheila and her mother. But if the jailbird has convinced Mom that she’s the reason the psycho turned out so… well, psycho, Molly might be forking over bundles of guilt money.
We know, we know — this notion is as crazy as Sheila herself. But the Young & Restless lawyer might do anything to keep the madwoman away from Lauren and their family — including paying her big bucks to stay where she is!
Assuming that Sheila’s estranged daughter with Massimo has access to all of the gazillionaire’s moolah, she could have struck a deal with her momster: If Sheila stays out of Diana’s life, Diana will finance Sheila’s life.
If Sheila’s son with the late Tom Fisher managed to hit the jackpot, he might be spreading the wealth to the woman whose “death” left him to grow up in the clutches of his equally demented Aunt Sarah Smythe.
Perhaps the Moroccan prince who was so besotted with Taylor (Hunter Tylo here) turned loose Sheila to scare his lost love into reaching out to him. Then again, perhaps not. By now, since “Layla” has not contacted him, wouldn’t he know that his plan had failed?
