    Kyle is delusional if he thinks Tara is homeless!

    Is Kyle serious? Tara who probably gets more in monthly child support than most single mothers get in a year. Doesn't she also have a shoe designing business? Kyle and Jack act like this poor unfortunate woman can't afford to get her own place. Why in the world is she living with these people? She and Kyle were never married. She isn't Jack's former DIL. She's just a woman who came to town with a child conceived through an affair and tried to exploit the same people who are trying to help her.

    It was so pathetic listening to her whining today about Ashland selling his properties and how much she has lost through this divorce. Grow up, Tara. You have more in life than most people and your lying and conniving ways are going to be your downfall.

    She already said her shoe company is deeply in debt which is why I suspect Lauren didn't get all of the paperwork she requested.

    There is support for Harrison but none for her. Yes she could use that for a place for them to live but not to keep them in the lifestyle she is accustomed to.

      Yes I believe that’s the reason for the missing documents.

      Like it or not both guys independently asked her to move into the mansion so why should she have turned that down? Especially if Harrison had a better chance to get to know Kyle and Jack.

      I agree that Tara's debt with that shoe line must be what the missing paperwork is about. Lauren's not going to like that.

    I agree. She's a lying gold digger. I even wonder about that shoe business if it was really even legit at all. If she is taking care of the boy, then she should be provided for. It might be on a lower level where she might have to actually work but if Ashland were decent at all, he should be providing some kind of a roof over her head in light of the fact that Harrison will have to live there and also because he is not going to be physically able (according to him) to really take care of the child himself. I thought Tara moved in with the Abbotts so she wouldn't be threatened by ashland and yet he comes and goes without calling ahead and she deals with him after she ushers everyone out of the room. She could have been gone within the first week. I hope Jack and Kyle look like complete fools when this is all over.

      Maybe Tara and Ashland are trying to pull a fast one on Lauren and the Newman's.

        Too much effort over months and months to bother if you ask me. Doesn’t make sense. To me more believeable as it played out.

        It doesn't seem like that is what Tara and Ashland is doing in my opinion. Tara's emotions about the divorce and not getting nothing in the divorce seem genuine. And although Ashland continues to grab his chest as if he is in so much pain then immediately when Victoria shows him attention, he miraculously is okay he did ask Victoria to come with him to the cancer specialist which leads me to believe that Ashland really does have cancer. I don't think an oncologists would lie and say someone has cancer when they really don't but this is Y&R, anything goes sometimes. In saying that, it just doesn't appear to me that Ashland and Tara are working together to pull a fast one on anyone.

        Based on the way Tara and Ashland were fighting the other day when nobody else was around, I highly doubt they are working together.

      Tara's going play "poor me" until she gets Kyle to propose. And she'll probably push for an elopement so he won't have time to reconsider. That's the end game for her. Thanks to Phyllis, it'll never happen, I hope.

        Kyle has no romantic interest in Tara. He made that clear to Jack today and he did not even flinch when saying no.

      Tara is still living at the Abbott mansion because she is enjoying the luxurious lifestyle that it offers her. It's like she's still living large like she did back in New York which is a lifestyle Tara is accustomed to. Tara doesn't want to leave the Abbott mansion and go back to staying at the hotel. It's hard for me to believe that Tara didn't tuck so money away in a secret bank account while she was married to Ashland in case they ever divorced. They way Tara struts around GC you would never think she is broke

      Tara the so called strong and independent woman has turned into the weepy eyed and unhinged desperate housewife .... looks like Ashland was the smart one by kicking her out finally and it looks like Jack and Kyle are the losers for believing her schtick and letting her move in and mooch off of them Tara is nothing but a gold digger at this point now until the story takes a surprising turn... and that’s ONLY if it turns out it’s all a scam she’s come up with the involving Ashland as well but the more this story plays out the less likely I see that outcome happening

        It certainly does look like Ashland was the smart one by kicking Tara out and cutting her off too! Jack and Kyle got played by Tara and continue to get played because they continue to put up with her bull crap even though they are starting to be suspicious of her, I think by now, Jack should of kicked her out like Ashland did and just support Harrison at this point since he and Kyle believe he is family. Just because Tara is supposedly Harrison's mother doesn't mean she has to live in the Abbott's mansion.
        I agree that Tara is nothing but a gold digger, a leech that uses people for her own personal gain.
        I just don't believe that Tara and Ashland are working together to bring anyone down. Should that indeed be the case, I will be shocked out of my mind!

      It is so funny to me that they seem to forget she has a profitable show enterprise. Those men just sit around thinking the woman are after their little empires and money. They are dealing with smart business women and they don't need their homes or money. She can probably buy and sell Kyle cause he has nothing of his own anyway except that co-ceo title.

        Do you mean shoe enterprise? Because she has said that is deeply in debt and not profitable. She told Kyle that and that she does not have money.

      Yes, Ashland would never leave his son penniless and homeless.

        They've said many times that Ashland "has provided for Harrison" in writing, which would mean monetary support probably on a monthly basis. For her to act like she can't afford to live in a place of her own (I don't mean a hotel), is ridiculous.

        I am sure the money would more than cover a place where Harrison could live in the way he is accustomed to.

      It seems that Kyle was either just messing w/probing her, since he overheard her end of the phone call to Sally I'm sure that Tara's receiving support for Harrison, until the divorce settlement is final. Tara herself, though, may be cash-strapped at present. Jack/them could've easily put Tara/Harrison up in an apartment, but I think that he/Kyle wanted Harrison close by. I don't see anything out of order on Jack's end for putting his grandson/his mother up in the Abbott house. IF Harrison is Kyle's, then he's family. Sorry, but the child comes w/the mother. That's the complication of these situations... JMO

        I know Tara signed a prenup but dont they usually get a preset cash amount written into the prenup rather than any further claim on each other's property? I would certainly think Tara should have gotten at least a few hundred thousand if they divorced. If she didnt get any cash, I'd say she had a pretty bad attorney or didnt have it reviewed prior to signing. Certainly, as someone stated above, could she be do dumb as to not have set aside some money in her own name? For someone who is supposed to be as conniving and underhanded as she, I would think she would have made sure she had a nest egg somewhere. She's always looking out for herself so how could she miss this?

        Next, I still dont understand why she revealed to Ashland that Harrison is not his son. It seemed like a lame reason at the time. Something about she and Ash were getting along so well that she thought she could reveal the child's paternity and what? He wouldnt care? Again, for a conniving, underhanded snake, she would never do this. She would never reveal that willingly.

        They cant have it both ways. She is portrayed as being so smart about wringing her poor mark out to dry, but yet she is so dumb she didnt provide for herself "just in case" or thought Ash (that name is so annoying) wouldnt care when she revealed his paternity? Makes no sense.

        And as for Kyle, I'm hoping he is wising up. Hopefully he is starting to see that Tara is not what she portrays herself to be. Hopefully he will do some digging or, at the very least, listen to what Phyllis digs up on her.

          As to why she revealed paternity, this happened after Ashland blew up at learning she and Kyle had been sleeping together and he wanted to know if Harrison was his, he asked her to come clean, said he wouldn’t be upset just wanted the whole truth. Much BTW like Jack asked Sally and I think even asked Tara (or was it Kyle with Tara?).

          Of course once Ashland was given the truth about Harrison, he went ballistic and threw her out of the house, didn’t want to go for marriage counseling, and said he was filing for divorce which he did. So not surprising she wouldn’t want to fess up to what Sally got her to do if you ask me.

        I never understood what Jack and Kyle were thinking about letting Tara and Harrison live at the house after Sally told Ashland where Tara was hiding ( will that dirty secret come out but not that it will matter, Tara is sitting pretty).. She was there to stay safe from Ashland but once the threat was over she should have moved out. Was Tara going to live at the house after Kyle and Summer got married? Kyle would have done what millions of fathers do which is visit. And, it would have been very distasteful for Tara to remain at Jack’s without Kyle. She may have his son but that doesn’t mean she should be under foot for all family gatherings. Harrison, yes but not Tara.

        Only on a soap.

          If you mean Tara should have been honest about being broke, yes, I agree that Jack would have helped her. And, I can understand the initial offer to have her move into the house but Jack and Kyle never talked about the “future” even after Kyle and Summer set an August wedding date. Tara was getting more and more comfortable living in the house with Jack and Kyle. But, I think Tara’s conversation with Sally sounded like she wants more from Kyle. However, at this point she does think that Summer is in the past so why not pursue Kyle. Or, she did before hearing Kyle’s voicemail to Summer.

          And, Ashland was no longer a threat to Harrison. He had compromised by dropping this case for sole custody.

          DallasGal We mostly agree! The Abbott Manse is Jack's house, so it was really HIS decision how long Tara got to stay. Kyle could've bunked in he/Summer's room at the Grand Motel, and visited the Manse. He didn't need to stay in residence. Summer was KYLE's responsibility, so it was really up to him to handle his business w/his fiance. However, Summer could've been straight-up honest w/Kyle, then Tara's "plan(s)" could've gone nowhere.

          Tara's "plotting" aside, I didn't have a problem w/Jack allowing Tara/his grandson to stay in his home. It was the decent thing to do, under the circumstances. When one invites someone into their home (who's in difficulty) it doesn't make sense to expect anything from them--because they have nothing. If it isn't permanent, then "future" plans can be discussed at an appropriate time. True "hospitality" makes a guest feel comfortable while under their roof, especially if they were invited. If it's a matter of "boundaries," then that can be discussed in advance, or as needed. JMHO

        We all know she is in debt regarding her shoe business. And she made a point to tell Lauren that now that she's divorced, she needs to quickly get some income happening and that's why she wanted Lauren to hurry and sign the shoe line contract.

        Can't wait to see what the missing documentation tells Lauren about Tara. Hope it doesn't take another month.

            Even with a stingy pre-nup Tara should have accumulated enough in gifts of jewels and art etc. during the marriage that combined with generous child support and what she was able to sock away in a separate account over the years she should be able to afford her own place. It would probably be best to call off or stall the divorce proceedings and wait for Ashland to pass then she would inherit a widow’s share of his estate. I know there are some competent lawyers in NYC.
