Congrats to Ameila Heinle (Victoria, Y&R) who was selected as the performer of the week! Click here to learn more--->>
On this past week of The Young and the Restless, Victoria Newman (Ameliaa Heinle) got back together with Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) and her family does not approve at all. Victoria struggled with the idea of saying goodbye to Ashland for good and admitted to him that she was still in love with him. Heinle perfectly displayed Victoria’s complicated feelings for Ashland. That despite all of his mistakes, betrayal, and misdeeds, Victoria is still in love with him. Victoria makes it known to Ashland that she wants them to have a fresh start, out of town and away from her family, and that she wants to take things slow. Later on, Victoria has a meeting with her family to let them know that she will be leaving the family company and leaving town altogether. She confronts them, Victor (Eric Braeden) in particular, for going behind her back while she was out of town with Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) to convince Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Summer (Allison Lanier) into getting a restraining order so Ashland couldn’t see his son in the hopes Ashland will leave town before Victoria returned home. Heinle’s powerful performance captured Victoria’s outrage, pain, betrayal, and frustration with her family for treating her like a child and not trusting her to make her own decisions. Victoria makes it known that she’s claiming her independence to live her own life and that it requires her to do it away from the family so they can’t try to dictate for her anymore. Bravo Heinle for yet another spectacular performance!
