Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) saved her from drowning as a child.

At the time, Victoria wanted both relationships to end so her parents could reunite. In 1992, Victor set Victoria up with Brandon Collins (Paul Walker). However, Victoria was also secretly dating Ryan McNeil (Scott Reeves), who worked at Newman Enterprises. Later on, she ended up having an affair with Eve Howard's (Margaret Mason) son Cole (J. Eddie Peck). She ended up marrying him. However, once Victor broke the news that Cole was his son, the marriage was annulled. Victoria pursued love with Ryan, but later shot and killed him after being locked in a closet by Tricia McNeil (Sabryn Genet).

Victoria then started dating Diego Guittierez (Greg Vaughan) to see whether he's been bedding Nick's wife Sharon Newman (Sharon Case). She moved on to Brad Carlton (Don Diamont), who she had a miscarriage with. They divorced after she finds out he cheated on her with Sharon. In 2007, she got engaged to JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) and fell into a coma after being struck by a rock amid the Clear Springs Explosion. Victoria eventually begins a tumultuous relationship with Billy Abbott (Burgess Jenkins), who she's currently going through ups and downs with.
