Chelsea Digs Herself Into a Baby Daddy Hole on The Young and the Restless



Adam (Michael Muhney) confronted Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) about being pregnant and demanded to know if Jason Morgan…err…Dylan (Steve Burton) was the father. Chelsea admitted she was pregnant, and told both men the child was Dylan’s. Adam told Dylan that since he got Chelsea pregnant, she was now his problem. After doing some fast explaining to Dylan and Adam, Chelsea rushed off to get the support of her friend Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson).

Victoria (Amelia Heinle) marched into Newman and pronounced to Victor (Eric Braeden) she was ready to go to work. She had to work very hard to convince him to let her come back to the family business. Adam interrupted his sister and father. Victor told Victoria he needed to talk to Adam alone. When Victoria left, Victor asked what was bothering Adam because he could see something had gotten under his son’s skin. Adam finally revealed Chelsea’s pregnancy and the two shared a nice father/son moment.

Kevin (Greg Rikaart) tried to make amends with Chloe, but she wasn’t having any of it.  Kevin finally convinced her to give him another chance after apologizing. Then, they both admitted their love life wasn’t what it used to be. Kevin and Chloe said they wanted to spice things up again, as long as it wasn’t illegal.

Chelsea arrived at Chloe’s office and quickly told her friend what a mess she is in.

Leslie (Angell Conwell) and Neil (Kristoff St. John) were at the hospital, where her father had had a heart attack, when Tyler (Redaric Williams) showed up wanting to know what happened.

Noah (Robert Adamson) blurted out to Sharon (Sharon Case) that Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Avery (Jessica Collins) were getting married.

The episode ended with Sharon showing up at Adam’s door and the two kissing. Is this Shadam redux all about their emotions or other relationships?

Don't worry, Adam. The odds are that Chelsea is getting pregnant with her fourth child as soon as this one's out. She has a baby for everyone. Tired
I'm so sick and tired of the Chelsea character. Especially in her scenes with Chloe. I'm all about friendships in soaps but this one is just sick. These two chicks running around town and Chloe trying to find Chelsea a baby daddy and one hot stick for the night... Sick

Adam and Sharon are still hot but it's not about them anymore. Obviously they write for Adam and Chelsea. And maybe for a Nick/Sharon reunion when Avery does something like cheating with Dylan. Even though I thought that Shick was out of question ... for like ever.

Nice to see Noah. Give that boy a storyline!

Adam/Victor is nice ... don't like the way Victoria is written.

I liked pretty much everything about this episode after a couple of disappointing and boring ones last week.

And it appears that they are going there with Adam and Sharon, and I just can't get behind it. He stole her child.

I think they've done some redeeming for Adam and I like that aspect of it, especially with Victor seemingly giving him a chance as his son.

And yes, let's get Kevin and Chloe split up ASAP.

So JFP is basically using old GH plots for this show.

When Chelsea was going on and on about how Adam would take her baby and all this crap, I just kept think isn't that the same thing Carly on GH said about AJ? I guess SBu wanted to play this storyline since he played it like 15 years ago

I thought today's episode was the best in about 2 weeks because of the mixture of vets & newbies...the stories were paced better. I loved the Phyllis vs. Avery and Phyllis calling Avery out "Bitch"...LOL! Love my Phack today was the best part for me Love I liked the scenes bwt Chelsea\Dylan\Adam today.

Kevin & Chloe the break-up needs to happen like yesterday but it does look like it going to happen. Thank goodness.

As far as Gus (TT) only signed to do 20 episodes and maybe Gus will die and this woman's name he's mumbled is setting up for the next story and Leslie will try to investigate? I like Leslie but I want Neil to have his own story also and not prop up Leslie either, KSJ deserves his own story. I enjoyed Noah & Sharon moment.

Shadam is moving forward and not unhappy or happy because I'm a lukewarm fan of Shadam, not about the actors or chemistry because they do share, it goes back to Adam and what he did to Sharon but that's my bag. Puzzled

I hate what Chelsea is doing to Adam and Dylan but I am really interested in watching everything. Adam is breaking my heart with how sad he is and how he is dealing with it. I practically cried when Chelsea opened the gift and read the letter...seriously heart-wrenching scenes.

I have to say that I really like Adam and Sharon as a couple. They seem to fit each other. I'm not sure what will happen when the truth about the baby comes out, but for now I intend to enjoy their togetherness. Smile

I got the feeling today that Fen is going down the road towards being Michael of yester year. This thing with Summer definitely gives me that vibe.

Speaking of Michael, he is breaking my heart. He's so sad. I want to smack Lauren. She's seriously getting on my nerves with this whole Carmine thing...and I don't get what she sees in him. He gives me the creeps.

I saw nuKyle - I miss oldKyle already. However, I'll give this new one a chance. I don't get why they recast the character with someone who looks younger when they are obviously going the route of Kyle being into Phyllis.

Jack and Phyllis are cute but I can't help but feel that they won't last.

Victoria is being an idiot and Billy appears to be on a slippery slope.

Kevin and Chloe are being idiots.

Noah should get more screen time.

I don't care anything about Leslie/Neil/Gus/Tyler/Lily.

Even though this recap was yesterday's episode, I have to admit that I really liked today's episode where the fall out of Chelsea's admission started to come clear. Not only has her lie made it harder for Dylan to leave town which in turn will rock the early... too early... engagement to Nick as he's now questioning her love.

I just can't seem to get the ultimate reasoning behind why Chelsea is lying to Adam EVEN after that lovely and sweet letter! I know everyone said that Adam never indeeded to leave GC because of Newman and Sharon, but I don't think that's a great enough reason to allow her to lie. BUT EGAN is an amazing actress so I can overlook the lie for a short bit longer.

But if she doesn't fess up we are going to have THE MOST CONVOLUTED LOVE TRIANGLE EVER SEEN ON DAYTIME. With the central couple being Chelsea and Adam we will have Chelsea lying to Dylan that he is the baby daddy making it hard for him to reach Sharon while Adam will vy for Sharon to forget Chelsea. Throw in Avery for good measure and her lingering feelings for her former lover and her budding romance with Nick and it's already complicated. Now throw in to that pot Phyllis, because you always need some spice in a stew, as she is angry over Avery and stealing her former MAN! With Jack foolishly not seeing any of the signs EVEN with his dead dad telling him to open his eyes and we have ONE PENTAGON LOVE THINGY going on.

Is Gus dead yet?

Honestly, it's sad when I don't care whether Chloe and Kevin survive. I just want them done.

Oh, CAN THERE BE A TRULY happy couple on this show? A little too much drama and not enough fun. BUT I have to say, I buy everything the actors are putting out there.

harlee490 ... I'm in the other direction when it comes to Phyllis and Avery. Even though I'm not that enamored with Avery and find her quite uninteresting, I do find Phyllis to be her usual hyper-hypocritical self; and it gets annoying when she goes into Phyllis overdrive.

Nikki and Victor are happy...for once. And let's keep it that way.

Now, if Nikki was actually ON....

Today's episode (Tuesday) was one of the best I've seen in weeks. Finally some pathos and characters reacting. Even the music didn't bother me. I hope the writers continue to mix character interaction more. Too much of the same gets stagnant and boring. Plus Phyllis is needed to add spice to the rather dull Nick/Avery/Dylan mix.

@harlee: Yes they need to break up Kevin/Chloe. I would love for Chloe to start circling Billy's orbit again. That was the most interesting that character has ever been. I would love for her to find out how Billy obtained, On The Boulevard. As for Kevin, I'm not sure what I would do with the character. He's been bland for awhile. The cast is still heavy and maybe a Kevin break wouldn't be a bad thing?

As for Gus, his back story is unfolding faster than I'm caring or even interested in. The writers need to develop more organic ways of introducing new characters instead of shoving them at us. IMO Gus should have stayed in jail anywhere from 4-6 months while he and his relationship with his children was more defined. An exhortation would have been much more compelling with an in-depth back story (remember how beautifully Kevin was introduced?). Instead we have a pretty mediocre character right now. It also doesn't help that the one character the audience does want to see more of (Neil) is a supporting player in the storyline. Bad move.

Shadam does not bother me like it used too. I'm hoping Chelsea keeping her unborn child's parentage a secret from Adam is a play on karma for him stealing Faith away from Sharon. Time will tell.

SBu couldn't even register emotion when he was told that he was going to be a father by his trick Chelsea. He would be an excellent player in a sketch-comedy parody of a soap actor--but here he is, on our screens 5x a week and now having the #1 soap on the air slowly but surely written around him. When will the madness end? This man gets paid to show up and do this?

And yes, this is a total, boring retread of Carly/AJ/Jason, right down to Adam (like AJ) being the badboy blacksheep son of the town mogul. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?

Kevin & Chloe are remarkably irritating to watch. They need to go ASAP.

Sharon got over Adam's actions. The last time I watched, Faith was OK and being parented by both Nick and Sharon. I think it's time to let it go. JMO.

Yeah, this particular scenario has been something that's always been beyond my scope of thinking; I just can't see any mother bonding with her child's kidnapper in any substantial way. And while everyone and their mother loves calling Nick a hypocrite--yes I know, he tends toward the self-righteous but that stupid sister of his has him beat in the hypocrisy department by miles--I totally agree with him on the point he made to Sharon about comparing him and Avery to her and Adam; hello you idiot, Avery hasn't stolen anyone's damn child or done any of the other despicable things Adam's pulled in the past(it's moments like that when I find it difficult to suffer Sharon's clueless ass). I know I'm in the minority but I just feel like Adam belongs with Chelsea and Sharon needs to give her nether regions a rest for a minute or two.

JoshG is really writing himself into a hole with Chelsea saying the baby's father is Dylan. I can just see JFP marching into Josh's office and saying, "My boy Stevie isn't ingratiated enough into Genoa City's canvas. Make him Daddy of Chelsea's baby!"

Lovin the way Phyllis can really tell Bobblehead off. She does a great job.

And I hope that Adam and Sharon get to fire-trucking again and again. He stole her child, gas-lighted Ashley, threw away the memory card in 2011, you name it. But she still keeps coming back again and again, must be his mojo, or his tongue ability, or something-something.

You go Joshua Griffiths, you go!

Just saw today's ep. The return of Fen. I love this guy. And the new Kyle, gargantuan -- like my ol nickname in high school, Gar-gan-tu-Juan. This nuKyle guy must be at least 6'5". Poor Fen, dude, you don't have a chance.

The only difference I see in the way that Carly was written in saying that Jason was Michael's father to keep him away from AJ was the way AJ was at that VERY MOMENT in time on the show. He was a BADDIE and Carly couldn't stand the way he treated her or others. Sure, Carly is and WAS no angel then... or now... but there was more for the audience to go on then a selfish motivation.

It's 'selfish motivation' on Chelsea's part, egged on by Chloe's past success and failure at doing the exact same thing to Cane. When Chelsea found out she was pregnant she and Adam may have been at odds with one another but it really had to do with what Chelsea wanted to do and what Adam (mentally) could not and that was leave Genoa City. At the time, Adam had one friend besides Chelsea and Sharon, and that was Jack who was shot (like Adam) and Jack trusted Adam to run Newman. Sure, then Sharon needed him and foolishly he went to her.

Even if Adam had slept with Sharon at that time, THERE WAS NO MOTIVATION that he deserved the baby to be hidden like this.

Gus was a waste of a story to me because as someone else said here it was shoved down our throats and never fully dramatized, especially with Senator Wheeler.

Now some of you might disagree with me here but think about it this way, in 6 months if someone mentions Wheeler will many of us remember him RIGHT off the bat?

Or even his 2 scene dead daughter, Stephanie?

Throw Gus in there and when you mention Gus in 6 months will you remember him without having to ask "who?" and then getting the convoluted back story? NO. I don't think we will.

Characters like Mary, Sheila, Hope or even TRISHA are remembered IMMEDIATELY and their stories are easily recalled. Why? Because we got to know them. We slowly learned who they were, their relationships, their love and STALKING of characters on the show. Gus? Who?

(Even Dylan's dad in 6 months will be such a faded memory to explain that he came to town just to die the next day will still be hard to recall)

OK, people, so Chelsea had sex with Adam on New Year's Eve, December 31st... I'll give ya a day with January 1.

She informs Dylan that she is due around Thanksgiving, November 28.

WOW... that makes her pregnancy 11 months. OK, sure she lied because she knew she was 3 months preggers when she succumbed to that HOT BODY!!! (I would succumb to it and I aint even able to have a baby and I'm a guy!)

I just hope that if the story does continue until she does give birth... I have no problem with that but the show has to stop having her whine that what she is doing is wrong (since she's still doing it)... that when she does go into labor and the baby is over 5lbs that Dylan isn't dumb to believe she had a 7 month FULL GROWN new born and its still his kid.

Nothing better than Dylan going ape on her in the hospital bed for lying and then having Adam... in true Newman form... serve her with custody papers WHILE she is still in bed!!

Now that would be drama worth watching. (Well, I think so. LOL)

People keep saying that Adam stole Sharon's child and how she can get involved with her baby's kidnapper. And by standards, if this would be happening in real life I'd question it but it's a soap opera and even so-called supercouples have done unspeakable things to each other.

The most famous couple might be Luke and Laura from General Hospital, who became a supercouple after he raped her.
Like it or not but Victor Newman is pretty much responsible of the death of Nikki and Jack's baby. Since then they were married how many times?
EJ DiMera not only raped Sami Brady on DAYS but he also let her believe that their daughter has died and replaced her then-husband Rafe with a doppelganger. Not to mention Sami shooting EJ or him blackmailing her son into working for him. They are currently a couple.
Ridge decides to take advantage of his Logan on B&B when she was no longer interested in him and raped her while she was on sleeping pills. Not to mention that he pushed her son from a roof during a fight and publicly humiliated his "great love" multiple times.
Sam McCall watched Jason's son Jake getting kidnapped on GH and did nothing to stop it from happening. Jason afterwards threatened Sam's life ... a couple of years later they got married and have now a son of their own.

What I'm trying to say. Soap couples do unspeakable things to each other. They always had and they always will. It's a soap standard and something that's overlooked by other couples on a daily basis.
In the end of it all it's about chemistry. That's basically what is making us falling for these couples and what lets us believe in them again and again. For me Shadam is no exception. Wink

I really liked the Chelsea character when her and Adam first got married. Now, she's just become a shrieking shrew. Saying Dylan is the father is so dumb. Why isn't Dylan questioning more about if he's the Dad since they only spent one night together? The story is just another reason to put Steve B front and center but I feel the character is being forced on us too much that he is turning me off. It was the same way on GH toward the last years when he was on almost everyday. I like Steve Burton but I still just see Jason Morgan playing another character.
The last scene with Adam and Sharon seemed so 'staged", over-the top. I like the chemistry between Adam and Sharon, but I don't see them getting back together again because they are both bad for each other.

i can't stand chloe's character at all anymore and they could easily ditch kevin as well as far as i'm concerned.

but now that i heard them talking the other day about how their marriage is super boring, i'm wondering if THEY aren't going to be the ones with the 'open marriage'?! i hate the thought of ANYTHING that gives these two idiots more air time. they're running around committing crimes and every once in a blue moon one of them will talk about poor DeeDee and how she'll have two parents in jail, and then they go out and do something equally stupid.

as for chelsea, i don't know how she can stand being friends with an airhead like chloe.

now that ameila heinle is no longer the receipient of the 'sh*tty hair' award, i nominate elizabeth hendrickson. her hair has been a freaking mess for MONTHS. Her dry split ends have dry split ends.

You got to love NOWAY'S comment, about Steve Burton being a bad actor. He is not only bad, he is just plain terrible. What a shame to have him on this once, outstanding show. Also, his part makes him seem really stupid, in regards to being father of baby. Unbelievably dumb story line.

Steve Burton's job on Y&R is secure. No matter how much some of us are not impressed with how he does it.

I do wish they'd made him a tough cop, a hard-nosed prosecutor, or even a dangerous criminal (not a mobster Wink). His lack of emotional range would have been much easier to accept in one of those kinds of roles.

Yes, I believe that Adam and Sharon have chemistry, it's just hard for me to believe SHE could get over it. Same with Luke and Laura on GH, I personally disagree with that couple and always have even though I don't watch GH.

BUT, I personally feel that Adam has pretty much been redeemed in that Y and R way (Michael, Kevin), so if they are going to pair them up, there's nothing I can do. PLUS there are far worse stories I've witnessed the past 7 years. This doesn't rank anywhere near the worst. (Clear Springs will always be the WORST.)

And I'm loving what's being done with Chelsea and her pregnancy. There's a lot that can happen with this, and if it keeps Dylan from having back story flashbacks about Avery, then it's a winner in my book.

I'm over the Gus thing too. I think they should have him die and then proceed with the fall out. I'm sure too that Tyler is probably Wheeler's but obviously there's still a secret or two there that we can find out about with Gus. Sorry. Don't like the character much. And it's actually putting Neil on the backburner as he just supports Leslie.

More Noah! More Chavez! More Paul!

pferrando, the way you feel about Clear Springs is the way I felt about The Reliquary Story. Just typing those three words makes me break into a cold sweat. Stare
