What Young & Restless’ Chelsea Does Next May Leave Chloe Flabbergasted — and Land the Fashionista Right Where She Wants to Be
Is Genoa City’s most notorious designer about to move on yet again?!
It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster ride for Chelsea since her most recent return to Genoa City, both personally and professionally… and it appears the trip may not be over for Young & Restless’ ex-con fashionista…
Chelsea’s behavior has been notably off the wall since her crush, the very-married Rey Rosales, died suddenly of a heart attack behind the wheel of his car on the night he was supposed to accompany her and Connor to Chicago. Her ex-husband Adam, who knows her better than anyone, was quick to pick up on her intensity when he and Sally overheard her chewing out Chloe via voicemail at Society. Chelsea denied it, but it was pretty clear to all that she was “off,” including Chloe when she arrived on the scene. Adam ominously observed that he’d seen this behavior before.
Adam approached Chelsea again in the park, and once again, her reaction to his concern seemed over the top. Things escalated uncomfortably and Kyle Abbott stepped in to “rescue” her, after which she invited him for coffee.
Professionally speaking, Chelsea and Chloe landed a cushy spot for their line with Lauren at Fenmore’s, but it was a stressful road to get there. Chelsea was unable to work with Sally, who had an interest in Adam, which made for tough going when she returned to town initially to join Newman Fashion. The situation only became more dire when Victoria bought Newman Media and decided she wasn’t interested in continuing the designer’s brand. Chelsea and Chloe decided to strike out on their own — without Sally — who, much to Chels’ chagrin, ended up working side-by-side with her former husband and taking him to bed.
Things were really looking up when Chelsea and Chloe teamed with Lauren, but in the wake of Rey’s death, Chelsea has been stressed to the max and she and Chloe have been at odds more than once.
Young & Restless spoilers indicate that Chloe and Chelsea will share a disagreement once again, and we have to wonder if their partnership is about to be pushed to its breaking point. If an argument has Chelsea walking out on Chloe professionally — or vice-versa — what then?
Well, we’d have to say the timing couldn’t be any better. Why? Because this happens on the same day her favorite rescuer, Kyle Abbott, “takes on a new challenge,” which can only be becoming the sole CEO of Marchetti Fashion, which was recently purchased by Jabot and relocated to Genoa City.
If Chelsea needs a new place to work, Kyle can swoop in and “rescue” her all over again by offering her a position at his design house — working alongside him. Sounds like the perfect set-up for her fixation if, as we suspect, she develops a thing for the boss. We can definitely picture a Young & Restless Chelsea/Kyle/Summer triangle in the future, as his wife works there too.
Do you think the tension between Chelsea and Chloe is building to a break-up? Do you think Kyle and Summer will hire Chelsea at Marchetti? Let us know how you think this will play out in the comment section below.
See Chelsea’s volatile history in the photo gallery below.
<p>Chelsea arrived in Genoa City on Billy and Victoria’s doorstep. She was pregnant and claimed that Billy was the father. He was, as it came out later that she’d drugged Billy in Myanmar and slept with him whilst being paid to pursue Victor’s agenda of keeping Billy from his daughter. Victoria and Billy moved Chelsea into the apartment over the garage and offered to adopt the child when it was born.</p>
<p>Chelsea and Adam met at the Genoa City Athletic Club. They bonded over being town pariahs and what started out as friendship grew stronger (why does this remind us of an REO Speedwagon song?) and they fell in love.</p>
<p>Chelsea grew up with her mom, Anita, who taught her how to be a con artist. Anita’s arrival in town, ready to fleece anyone and everyone, caused Chelsea no end of headaches. She later learned Jeffrey Bardwell was her biological father and the quirky, kinda crooked family were reunited.</p> <p> </p>
<p><em>The Young and the Restless</em> being a soap opera, Chelsea’s love for Adam was anything but uncomplicated. In this case, Chelsea had to battle Adam’s first Genoa City love, Sharon, for his affections time and again. That push and pull still exists to this day.</p> <p> </p>
<p>Chelsea and Chloe Mitchell became close friends and started working together on Chelsea’s fashion line. They’ve parted ways over Chloe’s hatred of Adam, who drove the car that killed her daughter, Delia, more than once, but are currently back to being besties.</p>
<p>Chelsea struck up a relationship with Dylan McAvoy while on the outs with Adam. After discovering she was pregnant, Chelsea told Dylan he was going to be a father and he was ecstatic. However…</p>
<p>Chelsea’s baby was actually Adam’s, not Dylan’s. As is wont to happen on soaps, the truth came out when it was discovered the baby inherited a genetic eye disease, and McAvoy was left devastated after having named the boy after his late father, Connor.</p>
<p>Chelsea agreed to move in with Adam in return for him not pursuing sole custody of their son. The two grew closer and fell back in love, thus forming a happy little family for a time.</p>
<p>After Adam unwittingly hit and killed Delia with his car and later covered it up so that Connor would get Delia’s cornea to save his sight, things came to a head with Delia’s dad, Billy, and Adam. The result was that Adam was presumed dead and Chelsea, naturally, took up with Billy. But when a stranger named Gabriel Bingham turned up in town, moved in across the hall, and began inserting himself into their lives, Chelsea found herself drawn to him in more ways than one…</p>
<p>Chelsea couldn’t resist Gabriel Bingham. It turned out there was a good reason why…he was Adam, very much alive and back with a new face. Needless to say, her planned wedding to Billy did <em>not</em> go off with a hitch!</p>
<p>After Adam was presumed dead again — this time at the hands of her best friend Chloe — Chelsea found new life working alongside Nick and Noah at The Underground. She began romancing Nick, who Adam had asked to look out for his son, Connor, when he was incarcerated prior to his latest “death.”</p>
<p>Chelsea, Nick, Christian (Adam’s biological son with Sage), and Connor formed a family. They were happy and planning to build their dream home until Chelsea grew paranoid and was drawn back to her old ways, extorting money from Fenmore’s. On the verge of being exposed, she did a runner with Connor and Christian (but left Christian at Victoria’s at the last minute) and left town after konking Sharon on the head and knocking her out cold so she wouldn’t talk.</p>
<p>Chelsea returned to Genoa City after Adam was revealed to be alive and living in Las Vegas. She had remarried, but conveniently, her wealthy husband died soon after. Chelsea reconciled with Nick, but was ultimately drawn back to making a family with Adam and Connor.</p>
<p>Things went sideways for Chelsea and Adam again after she fell down and hit her head in an elevator whilst caught up in one of Adam’s schemes against Billy. Her condition worsened until she suffered a stroke and wound up in a wheelchair unable to speak or move. Adam brought Sharon in to “help” with her recovery, which was wildly unpopular with the woman who could hardly protest. She began to secretly recover, and when she suspected Adam was fooling around with Sharon, she framed him for the attempted murder of Sharon’s cop hubby, Rey.</p>
<p>Victor realized that Chelsea had framed Adam and offered her a way out of going to prison… confess and be committed to a mental facility. Chelsea, knowing it was the only way, went along with the plan. She was later released and left town to see to her ailing mother, Anita, who had broken her hip. While she has been away, a new fashion division was established at Adam’s Newman Media, with Chloe heading it up, for her to work at upon her return.</p>
<p>Despite her having poisoned him, Rey was kind to Chelsea and Connor, and she grew to have a great deal of affection for him. Though it was lableled friendship, those close to her — namely Chloe — realized she’d fallen for him. On the night Rey was slated to travel out of town with Chelsea to take Connor to a hockey game, he took a heart attack behind the wheel and died. Chelsea was shocked and devastated and her erratic behavior after the fact seemed to give away her true feelings for the married man.</p>
<p>Once again making a move on a man who’s already taken, Chelsea got carried away when Billy was extra-sweet during their final podcast session together and laid one on him! Billy was kind about it, told Lily, and they all moved on… but Chelsea is pushing a new agenda to tell Johnny that he is Connor’s half-brother, and it may just be a ploy to get closer to Billy again!</p>
