The Young and the Restless Daily Recap: Phyllis Loses Control


Well today seemed to be the day of psychotic breaks and self destructive behaviors on The Young and the Restless. And with a week starting off like this it'll be interesting to see how things progress.

First off with some good news...Katherine Chancellor was visited at the courthouse today by her attorney who informed her that her death certificate and will had been rescinded. He also told her and Murphythat Marge was legally declared dead and a certificate of such had been issued. After the lawyer left Katherine remembered what happened the night of the accident where Marge died and decided to put together a memorial service for her. With Katherine now in full control of her estate she graciously offered to cover all of Amber Moore's legal expenses including the one million dollar bail the judge issued for her.

Speaking of the court hearing today....Heather Stevens came out swinging without even considering the possibility that Kevin was going insane. It would seem to me from past experiences that she would have learned to make sure she had all the facts straight before jumping in like a dog with a bone, but honestly I'm not surprised. Michael Baldwin stepped up as Amberand his brother Kevin Fisher's attorney. He debated with Heather about his brother's mental state in front of the judge and at times had to control Amberfrom creating a scene as she tried to defend Kevin'sactions as well as her own. During one of Amber's outbursts Kevin snapped and had to be removed from the courtroom. The judge agreed to put Kevin in an institution for psychological evaluation and treatment and set Amber's bail at the above referenced one million dollars. Amber was released later that night, but when Michael and Kevin's wife Jana Hawkes went to visit Kevin they learned he had been placed in a padded cell that he had been in the past which Michael knew would make Kevin worse. In the courtroom along with Michael, Jana, Katherine, and Murphy to show their support were Daniel Romalotti, Gloria & Jeffrey Bardwell, and Lauren Fenmore Baldwin.

However Lauren was late because she was busy lecturing Noah Newman and Eden about their little trip up to the Abbott cabin. Noah and Eden convinced her that them coming back to town on their own shows they can be trusted, so Lauren agreed to let Noah drive Eden home. But home is not where she ended up and they both ended up at Noah's house. They talked about deciding not to have sex and in the process ended up going at it on the couch. You know between them, and Nicholas and Phyllis Newman that couch has seen a lot of action. Hope they have Scotchguard. Nick and Phyllis returned home to find the pair naked on the couch which deterred a much needed and soon to be difficult discussion about their marriage.

Speaking of their marriage, I would say Noah has a better grasp on how to maintain one than his dad. Once Nick and his ex-wife Sharon Abbottgot to the Abbott cabin and found out that Noah and Eden had already left they began round two of getting it on. It started with Sharon confessing that she's losing control of her life and having sex with men pretending they were Nick, and them both admitting that if Cassie hadn't died they would probably still be together. Then Nick kissed her and you can guess where it went from there. Meanwhile Nick's wife Phyllis, whom he cheated on ex-wife Sharon with while they were married and is now cheating on his current wife with his ex-wife....(yeah my head was spinning too) broke into Sharon's room and started ripping up her lingerie with scissors. After that she really lost it and started tearing apart the room bit by bit. After ripping out one of the drawers Phyllis came across all the contraband that Sharon has been seen stealing for the past few weeks including the monkey figurine she stole from Nick & Phyllis' house. This caused Phyllis to regain her composure and formulate a plan. She wrote "I hate myself" on the mirror and called the cops to come look at the room knowing they would find the stolen merchandise. When Sharon returned to her room the cops were already there and she was unable to explain the stolen goods.

So now that you know what happened this leads me to my daily question....

Who of Nick's women would you consider the biggest nutjob?
