The Newmans Were Torn!
10 YEARS AGO
Ten years ago, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Nikki and Victor put aside their differences as they kept vigil at comatose Victoria’s bedside, leaning on each other as their daughter’s health — and that of her unborn baby — continued to decline. Alas, the comfort the estranged couple found in each other ultimately turned cold, with the tragedy coming between — instead of reunit- ing — them!
“Families [tend] to pull together during times like these — and Victor and Nikki do pull together initially,” noted thenexecutive producer/headwriter Lynn Marie Latham. “This is a major crisis; they face a very crucial decision about Victoria and the health of the baby.
“Each absolutely wants what is best for their daugh- ter, and they disagree about what it is,” Latham explained. “It’s very, very painful, because we’re not talking about a simple choice. We’re talking about a life-and-death situation.”
For a while, everyone thought Victoria was simply napping.
