Passions Character Descriptions
Played by Brook Kerr
Character traits: Loyal best friend
Marital Status: Single
Relatives: All of the Russells (mother, Eve; father, TC; sister, Simone;
brother, Chad; aunt, Liz; and son/or daughter)
Profession: Used to play tennis; sang at the Blue Note
Friends in Harmony: Theresa and Chad
Hates: Eve, Julian, and Alistair
Chad: When she met Chad, she didn't like him. She thought that he was a
street punk who was no good. It didn't take long for her feelings for Chad
to change. She started to have feelings for him. Theresa was the one who
actually got her to see that she was in love with him.
Obstacles kept them from getting together. For one thing, she overheard
him telling Simone that he loved her, when he was delirious. This made
Whitney think that he was in love with Simone, instead of her. TC was
another obstacle. He didn't want her to have a boyfriend because it would
distract her from her tennis.
Whitney also kept Chad hanging by a string. One minute she was willing to
be with him and the next she wasn't. She let her loyalty to her sister and
father prevent her and Chad being together. Eventually, she got over her
fears and decided to be with him. When her life was in danger, she realized
that she didn't want to live without him anymore and gave into him.
Another potential obstacle for them was when Simone found out about her
and Chad. Simone didn't take it well and blamed Whitney. Whitney tried to
tell her that she didn't steal Chad away from her but it didn't work. That
revelation caused one of the rifts in the Russell family. After that, she
went to LA with Chad, where she was going to finally live out her dream of
being a singer.
In LA, she found out that Chad had a secret. He had never told her that
he was married. This caused her to break up with him as the lie meant she
couldn't trust him anymore. After she was shot (read accidents), she went
back to Harmony. When he came back to Harmony for her, she eventually
forgave him and they reunited.
The worst obstacle then happened: When her mother's secret came out, it
was revealed that Chad was her brother. She was disgusted by the idea and
wanted to break things off with him right away.
Secrets (all): She knows all of Theresa's secrets. She tried to keep
Theresa from getting into the trouble that she's gotten in to but to no
avail. Despite being against Theresa, she stays by her every step of the
She knew that Eve was meeting Julian privately. She caught them in
uncompromising positions several times, which caused her to hate her
mother. She never told TC about those times.
She's also carrying a huge secret: she's pregnant with Chad's baby but
she's going to pass it off as Fox's baby; she doesn't want the world to know
that she is having her brother's baby, and she would rather lie to Fox then
let other children pick on her child.
Accidents (all): She was almost hit by falling debris when she wasn't
paying attention to where she was going. She was too busy thinking about
Chad. Chad wound up saving her.
When she was at a New Year's Eve party, she was drugged by Ivy's
henchman. She was acting crazy at the party. TC got upset because he thought
that Chad had drugged her, and, at first, Whitney also thought that Chad had
drugged her but then she thought otherwise. She never did find out why she
She was trapped in an elevator with Julian at Crane Industries: when she
was feeling confused about Chad, she ran off into an elevator. She didn't
know that it was out of order or that Julian was in there with her. They
almost lost their lives in the elevator, but they were eventually saved.
When Simone found out that Whitney loved Chad, Simone drugged her. It
kept her from winning her tennis match which made TC furious.
When she was in the Blue Note with Chad, Theresa, and Fox, it caught on
fire, courtesy of Eve. They were all trapped in the building, but they were
When Whitney was in LA, she was shot by Latoya. She wound up having a
Fox: When she was in LA, she started to get closer to Fox. She didn't
think anything of her feelings for him; she was in love with Chad. They had
close moments while they were there. One in particular was when they were on
the beach. When she wanted him to teach her how to dance, they wound up
kissing. She claimed that she thought he was Chad, but you never know.
She wanted to hook Theresa up with Fox because she thought that she was
his mystery woman. She didn't know that she was the mystery woman.
She got closer to Fox again when she pretended to be his girlfriend so
she could see Theresa's son. She kissed him again when she was in the study
When she found out about Fox, she went ballistic. She thought that he was
just using her, the way Julian was using her mother. She even slapped him a
few times because he loved her. She was in love with him, but she kept
fighting her feelings for him.
When she found out she was pregnant, she went after Fox and told him she
loved him. She needed a father for her baby and she thought that Fox would
be perfect. That is when they got together.
Feud with Eve: When she found out about Eve's secret, she hated her
mother. She loathed her when she found out that she was having a baby. It
turned out that she was pregnant with Chad's baby. She blames her mother for
her baby and the fact that she and Chad were together. She pretty much
blames Eve for everything that's gone wrong in her life.
Much to her dislike, she confided in Eve about the baby. Eve told her
that she should tell the truth, but she didn't want to listen. She wanted to
pass her baby off as Fox's anyway. She used the fact that Eve was her
mother as a way to get Eve to lie for her. It worked. Even after Eve lied
for her, Whitney still hated her mother. It seems that she will never
Scheme: When she found out she was pregnant, she was desperate. She
couldn't talk to anyone about it but Father Lonigan. She wanted to get an
abortion but Father Lonigan told her that he couldn't absolve her if she
did. She had a talk with her Virgin Mary statue (you read that right), and
the statue told her that she should keep the baby. By this time, she found
out information about the problems that would occur with incest babies. She
couldn't do that to her child so she decided to have an abortion. She wound
up chickening out and came up with another plan: she was going to pass her
baby off as Fox's. Father Lonigan told her not to do that but she felt she
had no choice.
Her scheme almost blew up in her face when she kept trying to get him to
sleep with her. He kept coming up with excuses not to be with her. She was
getting desperate and even tried to drug him into sleeping with her. See,
she had to sleep with him by a certain time, so she could be far enough into
the pregnancy for it to be his baby. Seemed like a great plan, right? Well,
she didn't need the drugs because Fox did end up sleeping with her at the
Crane pool. They also slept together in Sam's garage.
Feeling guilty, she was going to leave town and give her baby up
for adoption. That plan was foolproof until Fox found her pregnancy test in
the garbage. Fox thought that the baby was his, but Chad knew otherwise. Fox
was suspicious of Whitney and wanted her to get a DNA test to prove that the
baby was his and not Chad's. She hesitated at first but she decided to get
the DNA test done. She had to manipulate Eve in order to get her to lie
about the father of her baby. Of course, that worked.
Suspect: Whitney blamed Alistair for her being pregnant with her
brother's baby. She thought that he should have died. She was at the Crane
mansion when someone tried to kill Alistair. It is not known if she was the
one who poisoned him. She had opportunity and motive but it was never
revealed if she tried to kill him.
