SPOILED ROTTEN: 10 of Daytime's Best Loved Poor Little Rich Boys!
(No. 5) Nicholas Newman, The Young and the Restless
Genoa City playboy Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) has watched his parents ping-pong back and forth between one another’s beds, and those of the adult Abbott siblings (and Diane Jenkins and Brad Carlton and Hope Adams and…), since he came into the world on The Young and the Restless. It’s no wonder this poor little rich boy can’t seem to make up his mind between his own two wives!
A teenaged Nick came home from boarding school just in time to fall in love with meager Sharon Collins (Sharon Case). Nick and Sharon’s epic love was threatened by bad boy Matt Clark (Eddie Cibrian), who wanted Sharon for himself. They survived Matt raping Sharon, Nick going to prison for shooting Matt—a crime he didn’t commit—and the discovery of Sharon’s long-lost daughter Cassie (Camryn Grimes). What they couldn’t survive, was Nick’s roving eye.
You see, as a poor little rich boy, Nick learned from his father there’s nothing wrong with having your Sharon and eating your Grace (Jennifer Gareis) and Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) too! Maybe Nick never having to learn to be satisfied with just one of anything is why his onetime true love can’t stop sleeping her way through his family? Just a thought!
