Young And The Restless Spoilers – Is Ashland Related To The Abbotts?

Ashland’s past ties with the Abbott’s predates his appearance on The Young And The Restless. Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) previously stated that Locke tried to destroy his father’s business. Also, Ashland came to town, and shortly after Jabot became his target. It was assumed that it was in retaliation for Kyle Abbott’s (Michael Mealor) affair with his wife Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner). It is possible that Ashland had years of frustration for being an Abbott dirty little secret namely Dina’s? He may resent that he could not be a part of the family. After all, Dina was able to pass off Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) as John Abbott’s (Jerry Douglas) for years. If Ashland is Dina’s son he would not forgive being left out in the cold.

Did Y&R give viewers a clue about his ties to Jack Abbott?  When discussing his choice for the best man, he ruled out Jack Abbott. His reason being that their relationship was too complicated. Ashland may have given a clue that there is more to their relationship than meets the eye.  If Ashland plans to stick around Genoa City he would have a link to one of the core families on Y&R. What if Ashland is a member of another prominent Genoa City family?

Another rumor floating around is that Ashland had ties to the late great Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper). Long-time viewers of the CBS soap know that Katherine gave up Tucker McCall (Stephan Nichols) as a baby. He was the result of an affair Katherine wanted to keep hidden. It would be a great soapy twist if Tucker had a twin, Ashland. Y&R spoilers for the week of September 13 to September 17 show Ashland warning Billy Abbott that he does not want the ruthless tycoon as an enemy. In the soap world enemies often turn out to be related. It would be a shock if Ashland turned out to be Billy’s uncle.

The rumor of Ashland being linked to a wealthy older woman could be true. Only it may not have been a romantic link. Ashland could have been spending time with his mother or even an Aunt. Maybe his mother gave him money to start his business or he extorted the money. Dina or Katherine would have had many reasons to want to keep a child born out of wedlock a secret. Is it likely Ashland is a member of the Abbott or the Chancellor families? Keep watching Y&R for answers.


The Young And The Restless airs weekdays on CBS.

  1. Holdup! If Ashland is related to Dina Mergeron in some away, that would mean that he would be a brother to Ashley, Billy, Tracy and Jack.
