What would The Young and the Restless (Y&R) be without a little scandal? Genoa City is a place that is known for controversy and plenty of that happened this past year. Whether it was affairs, jail sentences, deaths, or even questionable paternity, the Y&R had some pretty big scandals over the past 12 months. Below is an overview of the top ten Y&R scandals that rocked the little town in 2016.
10. Noah Hits Billy
This scandal hit in and around the time the clock struck 12 a.m. on January 1st, and Y&R ushered in 2016. Billy was hit by a car in a parking lot leaving him struggling for his life. While friends and family were distraught, wondering if he was going to make it through to see another year, there were others that were quite suspicious about who hit him and left him to die. In the end, it was revealed that clean-cut Noah Newman was the culprit and it turned out to be a simple accident. As Noah was leaving the Stabby New Year’s Eve Wedding, he tried to get out of the parking garage, but was blocked by a car. He accidentally hit Billy, who had been left behind a vehicle after he was attacked by his bookie. Noah kept the secret hidden, despite it being an innocent mistake, which caused an entire scandal to ensue once the truth came out.
