With that said, Jill is also the kind of person who will give her son the tough love that he needs. And yes, that is exactly what Billy Abbott needs in his life right now, considering everything that he has gone through this past year. Jess added, “Jill does have that soft side. She loves Billy fiercely but she’s also quick to anger and to control. She can be brutally honest with him but it’s all out of love.”
