It’s been an interesting couple of months for THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Billy and Victoria. The unconventional couple got married in Jamaica, found out that union wasn’t legal, broke up, got back together and this week, find their latest attempt to become man and wife thwarted by — who else? — her dad!
“If there’s one thing everybody in Genoa City knows, it’s that the Newmans despise the Abbott’s… and vice versa,” explains Soaps In Depth executive editor Richard M.

But all of those rocky unions were just sort of laying the groundwork for the ultimate merger of the two clans, which began when against all odds, Victoria fell for Billy.”
Obviously, their respective families haven’t been too thrilled about the idea of the pair — who are expecting a baby — tying the knot. “Thank God for Nikki!” says Simms. “She actually helped the couple get all their ducks in a row so they could have this nice wedding and not fly off for a quickie ceremony in Vegas. But as they say, the soap opera ain’t over until the lady says ‘I do’, and the bride’s dad has something up his sleeve that will definitely throw a major wrench into the festivities.”
