The New­mans Were Torn!

CBS Soaps In Depth - - hottest Stories -


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.
