Y&R History

Kay & Jill by Christopher

With her husband away fighting a war, Katherine Chancellor had an affair with Arthur Hendricks. They ended their romance shortly before her husband returned. When Katherine discovered she was pregnant as a result of her infidelity, she gave birth to her child, handed it over to Charlotte Ramsey, a close friend, and instructed her to give the baby to an orphanage. Charlotte was forced to sign a form for the child, and the adoption was finalized. Katherine went back to her life, and ended up marrying Phillip Chancellor when her first husband passed away.

In need of a companion, Katherine hired Jill Foster to keep her company in her grand mansion in Genoa City. Katherine was a raging alcoholic, and at odds with her husband. Over time, Phillip grew to love Jill and they began a torrid affair. When Katherine discovered the truth about her husband and her companion, she got behind the wheel while drunk and drove herself and Phillip over a cliff. He died. Jill gave birth to Phillip's son, and she and Katherine waged many wars over the boy. When he impregnated Nina Webster, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, they worked together to hide her away in their attic while they tried to prove Phillip Jr. was not the father.

Jill set Katherine up with con man Rex, but he fell for her and they wed. In court for custody of her son, Billy, Jill was enraged when Katherine testified on behalf of John Abbott and nearly cost Jill her child. They fought in the courtroom hall, nearly killing one another. Later, Jill discovered that Phillip had left her the mansion inhabited by Katherine. The two ladies headed to the courtroom where a Judge told them they could each have half the house, forcing them to live together. Jill's harassment drove Katherine to hit the streets where she sought refuge in a homeless shelter. A twist of fate brought her together with Mackenzie, her runaway grand-daughter, living on the streets.

Jill and Mackenzie hated each other immediately, especially when Jill's son Billy fell for Mac. Katherine and Jill battled about the young couple's relationship for years. Eventually Billy asked Mac to marry him and she agreed. Meanwhile, Jill's Mother, Liz Foster, revealed - before a brain surgery - that Jill had been adopted. Jill's hunt for her birth parents led her to Charlotte Ramsey. When Katherine realized this meant Jill - her greatest enemy - was also the daughter she gave up for adoption at birth, she suffered a stroke. Meanwhile, Jill had to stop Billy and Mac from marrying, since they were first cousins. Katherine recovered from the stroke and she and Jill tested one another's willingness to build a mother-daughter relationship. When Katherine agreed to let Jill live alone in the mansion for awhile, Jill set to work having it remodeled. Katherine was devastated and turned to liquor for the first time in 20 years. Then Arthur arrived, learned he was Jill's father, and the awkward family of three began living under the same roof. Mac returned as well and vowed to help Katherine stop drinking, and to keep a close watch on Jill.
