Is Summer a Newman or an Abbott on The Young and the Restless?






If you follow me on Twitter, you know I become absolutely irate when anyone even jokes about the possibility of Summer (Hunter King) being Jack Abbott's (Peter Bergman) biological daughter on The Young and the Restless. In my mind, Summer is the daughter of Phyllis "Red" Summers (Michelle Stafford) and dimpled, speakeasy proprietor Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) and that's THAT! But could I be wrong?

In the March 25-April 8 issue of CBS Soaps In Depth, the magazine raised the question of a paternity puzzle with both King and Y&R scribe Josh Griffith.

Said King of her conversations with Griffith:

"I ask Josh almost every day, 'Whose daughter am I?' she smiles. "He says to me, 'I don't know what you're talking about.'

While Griffith told the mag Nick is simply being protective of Summer, in not wanting his daughter pursuing anything with Kyle (Blake Hood)—as opposed to trying to prevent a Greek tragedy—the writer did offer this cryptic tease:

"We're looking at the possibility of anything."

Lord have mercy, y'all are gonna make Phick lovers call up the Lane fans and ask for the number of one of them there banner plane pilots!

Do you guys think Summer will turn out to be Nick's child, or Jack's? 

Nick is definitely the father. Phick-4-Ever!

they can just say Nick was suffering from some kind of post-traumatic disorder since it happened around the time that Cassie died and the breakdown of his marriage.

I saw the Y&R scenes before Nick took off with the paternity results, which led me to believe that he knew the baby was Jack's and lied to keep the baby and be with Phyllis.

Is Kyle sticking his tongue down Summer's throat in this photo? Because if they goo too far with this, it would be sorta gross to make them siblings.

laneluva, that didn't really happen...Summer was having a fantasy that Kyle kissed her.

This is a miss by Jill.

He even had some of the same mannerisms of both Jack and Billy. And he was a good looking guy.

I also remember Phyllis asking Nick about the DNA results paper and him saying, he threw it away cause Summer was his. If you have to take a DNA test to prove paternity then u would want to hang on to the results to prove ur claim. If the DNA proved u werent, u would destroy it just as Nuck did. Summer is Jack's and it will come out as soon as Kyle falls for her and its the only way to stop the young lovers.

Ur post had me laughing, the casting director didnt do anything! Jill Farren Phelps, Ex. Prod. Simply fired the actress playing Summer and brought in Haley from the last job she had before taking over Y and R. She said here she is, no choice involved. Every actor she gets rid of is replaced by one of her former jobs cast members!

SoapQueen1-Just like when Marcy Rylan announced leaving. JFP got on the phone and called up another former HH cast member, no casting department involved.

Bring it on, that Summer is Jack's, we have been waiting.......but then again we the viewers don't know what's good for us isn't that right JFP?

That's true, there is no casting when it comes to JFP, or it doesn't look like there is. Jill just wants things her way, and she is the Executive Producer.

I'm glad that Joshua G is back, if he can give one the greatest couples in the history of Y&R a child, Phyllis and Jack. And nothing would make me happier than to see Nick in the dog-house, if it turned out that he was hiding the truth simply because of 'amnesia' or something like that. Couple everyone knowing that Nick lies about Summer's paternity, and Adam taking a bullet for his Father, maybe Nick can spend a few years as the Newman family pariah. Of course, stripper-Nicole will always take care of her momma's-boy.

The Moustahce, you got it right on this one.

they did not know if the baby was a girl or a boy

Phyllis found the empty envelope, saw the name of the lab that Nick used, got the phone book, called the lab and called the lab for the results after Nick, they would not give them to her because she was not the patient. They sited HIPAA rules. If Phyllis had changed the results, why would she call to get them?

no the dna test was over a 14 months after Cassie died, and the SHICK marriage had a breakdown starting from the beginning of the relationship! lies and cheating for 10 years before Phyllis came into the picture!

Nick was not planning on being with Phyllis! he told Phyllis he was obligated to stay with Noah and whats her name! it was after Sharon could not get Nick to say that he was not in love with Phyllis and that she was bashing Phyllis for telling Nick that she (Phyllis) did not want Nick involved in the life of the baby or her life he was free not care about the baby and oh yeah, Nick catching Sharon and her lover Brad swapping spit and half naked in Sharon SUV in the Newman parking garage and the Fuck you look Sharon gave Nick when he found them!

Nick returned and told Phyllis that he LOVED her and he already LOVED their baby, but he was obligated to stay with Noah and whats her name.

Jack was never "in the picture"!

the writers could blame it on Nick's amnesia or something that he went thru during that storyline where he lost his memory.

the amnesia storyline happened months AFTER Summer was born, and Nick regained all of his memories after he had a car wreck, but by then he had alread fallen in love with Phyllis all over again without the stigma of the PHICK affair.

let's see Phyllis had sex with Nick multiple times from mid December 2005 thru the first of March 2006 ( the time of the PHICK affair) and during that time she had sex with Jack ONE time after Nick and Phyllis decided to end the affair, the night John went to prison, and after having sex Phyllis told Jack that it was a mistake and should not have happened. So sex multiple times with a viril man in his 30's and sex one time with a guy pushing 60! hmmmmm who has the faster and more powerful swimmers?!?

Summer is a Newman! Nikki, Victoria and even Sharon all commented on how baby Summer looked like Nick. And when Nick had amnesia Phyllis showed him a picture of baby Summer, and Nick said why do you have MY baby picture?

PHATERS have been saying Summer was Jack's since Phyllis annouced she was pregnant, I do not think they would make a Newman an Abbott, even if they have made an Abbott a Newman, JMPO

First saying Jack conveniently trying to insult PB about "pushing '60", it only takes ONE swimmer...

No matter how you slice Summer should be a ABBOTT!

Phack is SOOO much HOTTER the Phick by leaps and bounds because PB is a better actor and MS ups her A game with Peter Wink Love

who the hell is talking about the actor! the character of Jack FOUGHT in Vietnam! how the hell can he be in his 40's or 50's???

if it only takes ONE swimmer, there were a hell of alot of Newman swimmers compared to Abbott swimmers!

I do not disagree about MS and PB being the best of the best that has nothin to do with the paternity of Summer Newman!

cgoff -- Why are you putting down Phack? They are so great together. I feel like I am watching a classic movie from the 30s or 40s when I see them together. They make each other so much more complete when they are together. Phyllis doesn't have to worry about ol Nick and his roving eye towards whomever -- Sharon, Diane, or Red's own sister.

Jack can finally feel comfortable with a wild red-head, and that's how he likes them. Wild! But without the baggage of Patty, the manipulations of Diane, or the naivete' of Luan Volien. Phack is the best couple Y&R ever had.

And I know Jack Abbott has healthy sperm. They survived the test tube that created Kyle Jenkins. Besides, Jack and Luan had a very short affair in Vietnam, and Keemo was produced. So I think that anyone who has watched The Show can vouch for Jack's seminal fluid.

I can't wait for the good writing skills of Joshua Griffith to inter-weave the revelation of Summer's parentage. I know it is going to rock the Newman's to their rotten core. I hope it changes Newman Enterprises. I hope it changes the way everyone views callous, no-good, momma's-boy Nicholas C Newman.

I can't wait till Victor has to turn over the grand-parentage of Summer to the parentage of Jack Abbott.

Summer is Jack's daughter John's grand-daughter, Billy, Ashley & Traci's niece, sister to Kyle, cousins to Abby, Dee, Johnny,... I know Phick fans will be highly upset if this goes this way...but this time are for the Phack fans and so deservedly been waiting on those DNA test results...forever!

If this is Phick vs Phack fans...I make no bones about it, I've always been a Phack fan so bring it on....(meaning a good nature way) Wink
