Someone is blackmailing her, and that’s why she set up the fake site to sell her Chelsea 2.0 designs. Chelsea soon gets a text saying they know what she did. That could be Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) prodding her, but the next text is worse.
Chelsea gets a message that says they know that Nick isn’t Christian’s biological father and she panics. Chelsea wants to protect Nick from the secrets exploding around them and wants to reassure him of their love. Phyllis and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) are both in Nick’s ear very soon encouraging him to doubt Chelsea. Chelsea sees a sweet moment at home with Nick and the boys and is afraid she’ll lose them. After a talk with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), Chelsea runs home and stuns Nick with an off the cuff proposal.
