It looks that Ashley (Eileen Davidson) is zeroing in on a dirty family secret: the fact that her little brother Billy (Jason Thompson) is carrying on a clandestine affair with her big brother Jack’s (Peter Bergman) wife, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni).
Sometimes knowledge is power. Other times, it’s a horrible curse. Ashley may find herself in the latter position, if and when she discovers that Billy and Phyllis are carrying on behind Jack’s back. While she probably won’t want to break Jack’s heart — let alone destroy their family, she may feel compelled to tell Jack all, believing he has a right to know the truth. As the moral conscience of the Abbott clan, Ashley may feel it’s the only thing to do.
The Ugly Truth
Over 7,000 votes were cast and a whopping 82% believe the tell-it-like-it-is Ashley will be the one, who ultimately exposes all to Jack. She’ll be so appalled and disgusted by the knowledge of Phyllis and Billy’s affair, she won’t be able to keep the information to herself. She’ll run straight to Jack and reveal the ugly truth, letting the chips fall where they may.

Mum’s the Word
Meanwhile, 13% of fans don’t believe Ashley will be the one to expose this clandestine affair. She knows all too well what happened the last time Billy bedded one of Jack’s wives. (Remember Billy had a fling with Sharon, years ago, too.) It tore the Abbott family apart, and Ash won’t want to see that happen, again. So she’ll keep mum, but work overtime to convince Billy and Phyllis to come to their senses and break things off.
In the Dark
The remaining 5% of fans are banking on Jack learning about the tryst some other way; like walking in on Phyllis and Jack going at it in the sack. And you’re eager to see the explosive Jack/Billy showdown that follows.
