10 Soap Opera Dads Who Shared Women With Their Sons


No. 10:  Neil Winters and Devon Hamilton, The Young and the Restless

Soap fans don't know what to think about uptight executive Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) and his adopted, billionaire ward Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) lusting after the same woman on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless. Reformed revenge blogger Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) has the Winters men wanting to optimize more than her search engine.

Hilary isn't the only woman the Winters men have in common. The moment Devon learned Tyra (Eva Marcille) wasn't his biological aunt, he jumped her bones. Who cared if he was dating Roxanne (Tatiana Ali) at the time, and Tyra was with Neil? 


No. 9: Eric, Ridge and Thorne Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful

Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) was thrilled whenever her playboy designer son Ridge (Ronn Moss) chose goody-two-shoes, like Caroline (Joanna Johnson), or Taylor (Hunter Tylo) over sexpot chemist Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang). What Stephanie didn't plan on, was her husband Eric (John McCook) taking a liking to Ridge's good-time girl on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Eric married Brooke and fathered two of her children. That didn't stop Ridge from reuniting with his "Logan" several times over the past two-and-a-half decades. Eric's younger son Thorne (Winsor Harmon) had his turn with Brooke as well.

Speaking of Thorne, last week on the CBS sudser, he reunited with Taylor, ex-wife of Ridge and ex-girlfriend of their father. That will teach them to keep Thorne down in the Forrester Creations basement for so long! 


No. 8: John and Brady Black, Days of Our Lives

Widower John Black (Drake Hogestyn) dated shy Kristen Blake (Eileen Davidson) when his son Brady was still a toddler on Days of Our Lives. Stefano's (Joe Mascolo) adopted daughter must have been extra generous with her milk and cookies when she babysat, because a grown-up and strapping Brady (Eric Martsolf) couldn't wait to bed Kristen when she returned to town in 2012.

Okay, so technically Brady kept getting in Kristen's face early on to warn her against attacking his family. All it took was a few bats of her eyelashes, and victim stories and Brady was under the spell of the demented DiMera spawn.

Kristen must be an acrobat in the boudoir. After a decade and a half, John was still carrying a torch for his twisted ex. The eyebrowed-one was so obsessive about Kristen, he managed to tank his relationships with both wife Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Brady. Wonder if Joe Sr. and Jack Kennedy went through similar drama over Marlene Dietrich?


No. 7: Victor, Nick and Adam Newman, The Young and the Restless

Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) never imagined his dad and brother one day banging his high school sweetheart. Maybe he should have called dibs?

Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nick had been through many ups and downs, before his troubled half-brother Adam (Michael Muhney) arrived in Genoa City on The Young and the Restless. Sharon existed as the beauty to Adam's beast. She forgave him sin after sin, including: kidnapping her daughter, faking her death and giving the baby to his stepmother

Adam was practically a peach compared to his father. Victor (Eric Braeden) romanced and even married the mentally unstable ex of both his sons. Some guys just have to plant their flags everywhere they go.


No. 6: Asa and Bo Buchanan, One Life to Live

Asa (the late Phil Carey) shared a volatile relationship, not to mention several women, with his son Bo (Robert S. Woods) on One Life to Live. Delilah Ralston (Shelly Burch), Becky Lee Hunt (Mary Gordon Murray), Alex Olanov (Tony Walker), Gabrielle Medina (Fiona Hutchinson) and others went back and forth between the oil rich daddy and son. "You only have one life to live, but it's perfectly acceptable to spend it schtupping more than one Buchanan", must have been written into the Llanview, Pennsylvania town charter.

No. 5: Alan, Phillip, Alan-Michael and Gus Spaulding, Guiding Light

Alan Spaulding (Ron Raines) rarely approved of the women his sons became involved with on Guiding Light. That didn't stop him from screwing them. C. Blake Thorpe (Liz Kiefer), India Von Halkein (Mary Kay Adams), Beth Raines (Beth Chamberlin) and Olivia Spencer (Crystal Chappell) were all involved with both favorite son Phillip (Grant Aleksander) and his pops.

Blake, for good measure, also hooked up with Alan's younger son Alan-Michael (Rick Hearst). Olivia crushed on Alan's illegitimate son Gus (Ricky Paul Goldin), that is until he died, and Olivia started dating Gus's baby mama. At least she changed things up a bit!


No. 4: Victor Kiriakis and Bo Brady, Days of Our Lives

Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) and his biological father Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) have come a long way on NBC's Days of Our Lives. Judging by the warm relationship the men have shared in recent years (whenever Bo isn't out of town on assignment!), it's hard to believe there was a time Victor wanted his son dead.

Victor was so smitten with beautiful physician Carly Manning (Crystal Chappell), he had to have her for himself. The only problem was, the heiress formerly known as Katerina Von Leuschner only had eyes for Bo. So Victor did what any rational, love struck Greek mobster would do — he had an elevator rigged to kill Bo. 


No. 3: C.C., Mason and Channing Capwell, Santa Barbara

There aren't many perks to being the daughter of the help. Santana Andrade (Wanda de Jesus, et al.) managed to secure a couple of fringe benefits on Santa Barbara, namely the penises of battling brothers, Channing and Mason Capwell (Lane Davies). For good measure, Santana also hooked up with C.C. (Jed Allan), the father SoCal's version of Cane and Abel.

Not to be outdone, social-climbing pill popper Gina Blake (Robin Mattson) also slept with C.C and Mason. She even stole a few dollops of their sperm!

As for Santana, so what if Channing was gay, Mason was a drunk and power-mad C.C. only ever truly loved Sophia (Judith McConnell)? Bedding the Capwell father and sons certainly beat helping madre with the dusting. 


No. 2: John and Jack Abbott, The Young and the Restless

Oh, the betrayal John Abbott (Jerry Douglas) felt when he learned his tennis-playing son was porking John's trophy wife on The Young and the Restless. Everyone warned John about becoming involved with Jill Foster (Brenda Dickson, et al). Hadn't he heard the sordid tale of how Jill came between the Chancellors?

Of course he'd heard the story. His best friend Kay (Jeanne Cooper) made sure of that. It was also Kay who ensured John would learn the truth about her mortal enemy sleeping with his son Jack (the late Terry Lester). The pornographic puzzle Kay sent out one clue at a time, revealed a photo of Jack being put in the corner by his stepmommy.


No. 1: Nick Davis, Phil and Charlie Brent, All My Children

Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) dreamed of Phil Brent (Richard Hatch) as a nubile high schooler on All My Children. Eventually, La Kane not only got the guy, but his biological father Nick Davis (Larry Keith) as well!  

As if father and son both going to bed with Erica wasn't scandalous enough, many moons later she slept with Phil's son Charlie (Charles Van Eman). Talk about a multi-generational menage a trois.
