The Young And The Restless Star Camryn Grimes Responds To Upset Fans Over Mariah And Tessa Kiss‘The Young and the Restless’ fans were in for a surprise during the August 3rd episode of the show, as Camryn Grimes (Mariah) and Cait Fairbanks (Tessa) shared a kiss that sent shock waves, not only through the characters, but throughout the show’s very vocal fan base.

According to Soaps In Depth, the kiss has proven to be a lightning rod for controversy among said fan base, but Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks seem to be pleased with the response they received online and on social media. Camryn even tweeted, “So many of you are giving me life! Your strength is power, progress, and potential. And I love you.”

Cait also re-tweeted Camryn, and added, “Honored by the reaction of today’s episode. Feeling the passion of the fans is very exciting. Thank you.”

Of course, some fans of the show chose to be more vitriolic than celebratory over the Mariah and Tessa kiss, utilizing social media to express their (negative) sentiments. One even tweeted to Camryn Grimes that once the writers decide to make her character a lesbian on the show, that her time on ‘The Young and the Restless’ will come to an end. And her response? Well, let’s just say she responded in the spirit of her character, tweeting back at that fan, “I managed to last 20 years and one death… I’ll take my chances.”

Camryn Grimes has been a fan favorite and certainly has made it through her fair share of mishaps and controversies on the show, and weathering the minor controversy surrounding her character’s on-screen kiss will likely just be added to that list. In fact, the overwhelming response to the kiss was positive, but of course, social media tends to showcase both the positive and the negative to every fan response.

Now, we’ll have to see what the kiss means on the show, since prior to it, Tessa had been getting close to Noah and Mariah had been getting close to Devon. But now that they’ve shared such a powerful and chemistry-laden moment, will they go back to their previous feelings or act on their new ones? And what will Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks react in the future, if the controversy over this storyline continues?

    I don’t like the idea of Mariah being a lesbian. Put her with Ravi. Devon has no chemistry with her. He just doesn’t have any personality or charisma. I’ll stop watching with this story line.

    I’m disappointed in the writers I have no problems will your sexual preference have several friends who prefer differently that me but who am I to judge?? But I REALLY don’t want it on my soap/I may skip thru the scenes or quit watching.

    Keep her with Devon Let the kiss be history. One time thing

    II am not against any kind of relationship but I just don’t feel it between Mariah and Tessa. I don’t see any sparks between the two. Maybe how its been written because they are both extremely good actors. I can do without this storyline.

  • I was not put off by the kiss at all. If the story line goes in that direction, I’m totally ok with it. It’s part of life why not on Y&R. I have never seen Mariah have chemistry with anyone until Tessa. This is a great story line and if it happens it happens for them. If it doesn’t it doesn’t. Mariah said on one of the episodes she was confused, therefore Y&R can take the story line in either direction.
