Victoria still thinks she made the right decision by telling Chelsea it’s up to Johnny to decide how he wants to interact with her. Billy agreed with that too, but his negative reaction really threw Chelsea. Victoria’s sorry, but she’ll protect their son and feels Chelsea went to far when she approached their son. Billy nods, “You’re right.” Victoria wonders if he expects her to feel guilty about Chelsea.
