Ashland Locke is currently the most hated man on The Young and the Restless, while Diane Jenkins will soon be the most hated woman. They’ve got no friends in Genoa City; they’ve got no allies.
Young and the Restless Polling
What they need is…each other? Should this be a team-up made in hell? Anger the Abbotts and the Newmans. Plus, even Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) will lose it! Here’s what Y&R voters told us about this troublesome team.
Y&R: One Track Mind
Diane (Susan Walters) claims the only thing she cares about now is reconnecting with Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor). If that’s true, then there is no good that an alliance with Ashland (Robert Newman) can do her.
He has no sway with Kyle after the Tara Locke (Elizabeth Lenier) and Harrison debacle, especially since Kyle is married to Summer Newman Abbott, and all Newmans have to hate Ashland now. Well, except for Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor (Melissa Ordway), but that’s because nobody tells her anything that’s going on in the family. At this point, Ashland would only be a hindrance to Diane’s agenda, 62% have decided.
Young and the Restless: A Woman Scorned
If Kyle turns his back on Diane, then 25% of you want her to go for broke and scorch the Earth. For which she could have no better partner than Ashland. She’ll want to break the Abbotts, he’ll want to break the Newmans, and, together, they could get much more done than either could alone. Plus, it would be nice to finally be with somebody who encourages their destructive tendencies, rather than dismisses them. Team Dashland, please!
Y&R: Go Get Him
Then again, 13% seem to think that Ashland could help Diane get to Kyle. We’re not quite sure how. Kyle doesn’t really seem to be co-parenting these days with Ashland but instead has taken over and would like to pretend that Harrison never had another father. Why would he listen to anything the older man says? And if viewers think that Ashland would trade his access to Harrison for Kyle reconnecting with Diane, well…he won’t. So where’s the upside?
