Celeb Dirty Laundry teases that “The Young and the Restless” might take advantage of the fact that The Blood Abbott Clause has been abolished and put Phyllis in the CEO seat. The spoiler suggests that Jack may take some time away from the family company to re-evaluate his actions that have led to his sibling leaving town. This indicates that at least on screen, Ashley’s departure will not cause the kind of devastation that will stop the infighting.

Peter Bergman will feel the loss of Eileen Davidson for quite a while, but Jack will not be able to mourn long for Ashley. If CDL is correct and Phyllis is named CEO, then Billy and Kyle willl no doubt be infuriated and plot ways to take her down. Be on the lookout for updated spoilers related to the infighting of the Abbotts and continue to watch “The Young and the Restless” weekday afternoons on CBS at 12:30 PM EST.
