Y&R History

Phyllis & Drucilla - The Beginning by Christopher

It was the quest for Damon Porter that crossed the paths of mouthy Drucilla Winters and fiery Phyllis Abbott. Newman Enterprises had purchased Satine Cosmetics and wanted the former Head Chemist responsible for its creation. Phyllis and Neil were working on getting him when Dru, Neil's wife, stole Damon's business card and set out to lure the man to Jabot, Newman's competition. Phyllis was furious and the battle-lines were drawn. When Mr. Porter finally settled in Genoa City, both married women sought his attention, and both chastised the other for doing so. While Phyllis argued that Dru wasn't as committed to Neil as she claimed, Dru retorted that Phyllis was a disloyal wife for working for Victor Newman, husband Jack's greatest enemy.

When Damon's former colleague, Vanessa Lerner, informed him about an orchid with special hair straightening qualities that was growing in Japan, Drucilla convinced Neil to move their wedding to the exotic locale, in the hopes of being able to help Damon find the flower and save Jabot from financial ruin. Neil brought Phyllis along for the trip. Unbeknownst to all, Lily found the flower no one else could seem to locate. She included it in a bouquet she made for her Mother. When Dru tossed the bouquet, Phyllis caught it. In short order, she realized exactly why everyone was so interested in her flowers, and took the orchid to Newman for testing.

Phyllis gave Jack an orchid to make things fair, but stole it back when she learned he already had one of his own. She skipped town with the flowers, while Dru begged Neil to get one back so that she wouldn't lose her job at Jabot. Though Neil promised Dru an orchid, Phyllis refused to hand it over, infuriating Dru and making Neil look like a liar. When Phyllis did return, she and Jack separated and she became involved with Damon. Dru was disgusted by the union.

Attempting to prove the hair straightener Damon created from the flower really worked, Dru used it on herself though it wasn't tested. Her hair fell out immediately, and Phyllis was there to taunt her. Dru swore that Phyllis was the most hateful woman she had ever met, and vowed to make her pay. She then went to Diane, Phyllis' enemy, and suggested they break up Damon and Phyllis. At the Mother's Day Brunch, Drucilla goaded Phyllis into an argument, trying to keep her occupied while Diane made her move on Damon. Phyllis gained the upper hand by ripping Dru's hat off her head and exposing her baldness to most of Genoa City. Dru dissolved in tears, shocked that even Phyllis could be so cruel. Phyllis merely stood back grinning, knowing she'd scored a major victory on her foe.
