Meanwhile, there were speculations that Victoria might have a new love interest soap. Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) could potentially be the newest couple. in the Young and the Restless. Victoria is in big trouble with Brash and Sassy becoming Jack’s primary target. The company has been weathering one problem after another.

With Neil’s decision to offer Victoria’s company a bridge loan without Decon’s approval, it seems like Young and the Restless is trying to set the stage for a romantic interlude for these two. Victoria is single, and her sole focus is on raising Reed and keeping Brash and Sassy afloat. Billy (Jason Thompson) is with Phyllis but the guy wants her to be on standby.

As of yet, a romantic relationship between Neil and Victoria remain to be pure speculation but Neil’s offer opens up a partnership. It would be interesting to see how things play out from here on out. Young and the Restless spoilers reveal it’s going to be an all out war in Genoa City with Billy’s decision to stop taking Jack’s blows.
