Why is Billy (Jason Thompson) so determined to bring down Ashland Locke? Soap Hub posed this question to Y&R fans. Read on for the results.
Billy Abbott’s Blinded By Jealousy
Most of you think that Billy’s more playing “jealous ex” than “justified journalist” as he digs and digs to get to Ashland’s truth. Yes, as Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) new husband, he’ll be a stepdad to Billy’s kids Johnny (Holden and Ryan Hare) and Katie (Sienna Mercuri), but nearly 56% of you believe that Billy has one motivation — he doesn’t want Victoria being with another man because he is still in love with her.
Always In The Right
About 19% of you believe that Billy’s going after Ashland because everything has to be about Billy. He wants to make ChancComm the best communications company around and what better way to do that than expose a media star like Ashland? Billy will start making power people lists if he can give the scoop on the mysterious Ashland.
All My Children On Y&R
Some of you, about 13%, believe that Billy isn’t jealous of Ashland, but you do believe that it’s wrong for someone who has blanks in his life to be around Johnny and Katie so much. If Billy truly does feel this way, he and Victoria could find themselves headed for court in a custody battle.
Young and the Restless: “V” For Victoria
The rest of you, 12%, believe that Billy is trying to find out what Ashland’s secrets are not because he’s still in love with Victoria per se, but he does care about her and wants the mother of his kids to be safe.
He’s in love with Lily (Christel Kahlil) but that doesn’t mean he still doesn’t care about his ex. Perhaps Billy’s real motivation comes from a mix of all these theories. Either way, he’s not going to rest until he finds out all about Ashland.
