The Battle Lines Are Drawn!
Jill and Nikki’s animosity toward each other may have escalated into feud territory this week, but their conflict was written in the stars decades ago when Katherine took Victor’s bride, Nikki, under her wing. The two women forged a very close friendship, with Katherine viewing the blonde bombshell as her own daughter. In stark contrast, the matriarch engaged in a long-running feud with Jill after the former beautician stole Katherine’s hubby, Phillip. (It didn’t help matters when Katherine caused Phillip’s death by driving them off a cliff!) Ironically, Jill’s jealousy of Nikki began in earnest when she and Katherine believed they were mother and daughter. During that time, Katherine may have accepted Jill as her biological child — and the two even grew close — but Jill could never usurp Nikki’s position as the daughter of Katherine’s heart. Despite the Duchess’ death, Jill can’t stop battling the green- eyed monster whenever it’s brought home to her the love that Katherine and Nikki have always felt for each other!
