THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Mariah Makes An Admission As Camryn Grimes Delivers Emmy-Worthy Performance!

Courtesy/CBS

If you missed Thursday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, or even if you watched it, you should go back and watch it again for the exquisite performance of Camryn Grimes as Mariah.

In key scenes at Sharon’s (Sharon Case) place, Mariah is deeply emotional when her mother tries to figure out what is wrong with her, and what has her feeling so down.  Sharon wonders if she has have any isues in her relationship with Devon (Bryton James).  Mariah cries that Devon is great; he’s everything she could want in a man.

However, struggling to admit the truth to her mother, and feeling torn apart inside for not living her life as her authentic self, Mariah tells Sharon that no one knows who she really is. She sobs that she is tired of pretending. Mariah reveals it’s a “she” not a “he” that she has strong romantic feelings about.  Sharon learns that “she” is Tessa (Cait Fairbanks).  Sharon struggles a bit with the info, because Tessa is Noah’s (Robert Adamson) girlfriend. However, Sharon advises Mariah to tell Tessa how she feels, and to not wait, but to go to her and admit her feelings for her.

Later, Mariah finds Tessa sitting outside the patio of Crimson Lights.  Overcome with emotion, she wants to be honest with Tessa and what their kiss meant to her. She wants to know once and for all if that kiss meant anything to Tessa … she said it did.  Next, Mariah is let down when Tessa says their moment has passed and now they are good friends. Mariah doesn’t want to be just friends with Tessa. A devastated Mariah is angry and hurt, while Tessa also cries when Mariah leaves.

Grimes’ subtlety, inner-struggle, and emotional depth that she brought to this performance has made it one to watch for when the Daytime Emmy competition kicks off.  This was some of the finest work of Camryn’s career, and anyone who has ever struggled with inner conflict, and admitting something so personal to a family member, or admitting that you love someone and stepping up to the plate to see how the other person truly feels could relate to these scenes, and Grimes’ work.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Marian and Sharon, and Mariah and Tessa? Did Camryn Grimes just become a top contender for the 45th annual Daytime Emmy? Comment below!

Camryn’s performance was revolutionary! She is such a talent and really a leading lady. I hope Emmy voters are watching and Mal recognizes what he has in her (loving Mal’s work too BTW).

Camryn gave the most real, natural, heartfelt, genuine, emotional performance I’ve seen on soaps or anywhere in a very long time. If that wasn’t an Emmy winning performance then I don’t know what is!

What a relief it must be to come face to face with herself—look at her truth and deal with it —it will a brand new tomorrow every tomorrows for Mariah, until she accepts and respects herself, without feeling shame.

A heart tugging performance by Mariah on Thursday assisted by both Sharon and Tessa.
Brought a tear or two to Mr.X’s eyes. Kudos to all three actresses and thank you Mal Young! Those were wonderful scenes.

Heart tugging, that’s it exactly, Mr X.
Watching Mariah struggle to be her authentic self while her mother, who has always given her unconditional love, urges her to stop pretending, was emotionally compelling stuff.
Gay or straight, who can’t relate to that story line?
This was some beautiful acting merging with beautiful writing.
Bravo to everyone involved.

I liked it. I noticed they seemed to rev up her performance as has everything been since Mal Young’s work aired last month.

They need to turn her into the heroine that she was born to be, but she needs more to do other than being Hilary’s punching bag.

I haven’t watched the show all week, only a little of today’s episode while at home for lunch (Friday). I’m just not that invested in Mariah and Tessa. I don’t care for the character of Tessa; and a lot of the show lately has been focused on the boring storyline featuring Tessa, Zak, and Tessa’s sister. Mariah and Devon had ZERO chemistry. It’s a good thing that Devon inherited his fortune because the character is just so dumb. I tune in mostly for Ashley, Billy, and Phyllis. I think Billy and Phyllis have great chemistry and great comedic timing.

Timmm
Guest

Zack sucks but he will be gone, I predict soon. Tessa has blossomed being with Mariah. Noah is dull and Devon is the worst! And by the way, since you havent watched, you probably missed Devon dressing up like Michael Jackson for Halloween. He looked like a goof. Michael NEVER had a goatee!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Zach does ‘s**k’, T….and Jordan is in the same catagory as he.
Jordan has always had an agenda….from the get-go. Imagine….he went after Lily with a vengeance….when it didn’t pan out, he tried his luck with Hilary, again….Ironic, that, since she was using him to begin with…..let us see where this leads. Hopefully out the stage-door with Zach.

Devon. You said the magic word, dmr….
Oh, my friend. Soaps are so magica. TPTB can conjure up diplomas, College degrees, Laureates, at a snap.
How does a child fom God-knows-where end up with a fortune that surpasses the “oil king” of Saudi Arabia?? LOL.
What does Devon know about running such an enterprise? Oh, yeah; Neil. Please!!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Magical.
PS. I will say this again—-bring Mac back!! Imagine the plot that could be had from her return.
She contests Katherin’s will….there will be an investigation resulting in fraud.
The culprit? Tucker.
Katherine LOVED Mackenzie ( albeit, they got off on the wrong foot, as a kid) too much, to have left the bulk ( and then some) of her fortune to Devon and pittance for Mac?
It happened so fast, it made my head spin. I am still in the dark of how the ‘change of hands’ came about.
Can’t stand Devon!!!! Love Hilary–bad girl and all.

Hey Celia…speaking of the word ‘enterprise’, as far as I’m concerned, The Enterprise (from Star Trek) can invade Genoa City aka Y&R and beam up, up and away the following characters: Cane, Charlie, Devon, Maddie, Scott, Victoria and Zach. BEAM ‘EM ALREADY, SCOTTY!!!!!!!!!!

Michael I agree. Saying it was an Amazing performance is almost an understatement. I literally hung onto every word she said. The breath that she took before she changed the pronoun when Sharon was talking to her from the “he” to “she”. The way she said Tessa’s name when Sharon asked who the girl is. And then every moment of that conversation between Mariah and Tessa. I realized after the 6 minutes of their conversation that I was holding my breath for a lot of it. It was so good, and powerful. On both of their parts, but Camryn Grimes… Read more »

This was a truly stunning scene. What Acting! Camryn Grimes mined such honest, raw feeling that I found myself tearing up more than once. Bravura work, the equal of any other actor, daytime or nighttime OR theatrical. And though Cait had mostly the reactive part, she played the subtleties beautifully with a mix of discomfort, compassion, and a little self-delusion. Ms. Fairbanks is an intriguing presence and the camera simply loves her. In between the excitement of the fire scenes, I found this display of great acting by two wonderful young actresses infinitely more compelling.

Hi, Nikki,
Long time, no see, my friend…
Yes, I follow what you are saying. I love Mariah….never liked Tessa….do not understand why she is on the show….for Mariah?? For Noah?? For having introduced the sex-ring??
However, this scene truly showcased Camryn’s talent to the hilt.
She had been a prop for so long, Camryn deserved this.
As I said, I hope the writers treat this delicate subject with grace, dignity and integrity.

Tessa told Mariah she has no clue how bad her past is and is better off not knowing. Guess what Cee, that is a guarantee that the soap will explore Tessa dark past so I see her being on the show for awhile! I dont mind her. I dont like Zack . He will be gone soon. He will snap and take Abby hostage and daddy will rescue her and she will find some other loser! Her and Noah have the worst luck!

Dear Nikki, hello. Noah just doesnt click with me. He gets girls but the show must feel as if he isnt capable of being in a decent long term story? He needs to go on the prowl, get in some trouble and mature into a man. Billy will land on his feet at Jabot. The Abbotts will have that family Christmas they yearned for!

Timmy your so right. I’m hoping they bring him back for November sweep but according to dirty laundry someone is going to die. Poor Sharon if its Scott then the door would be opened for Michael Muhney to come back but I think it’s going to be Reed and that is why we’re getting J.T. back. J.M.O.

You’re so intuitive, my Timmmy…..I saw Zach for what he was from day one. Tessa may be a good person, but she has always rubbed me the wrong way. To be honest, T, her story, in whatever capacity, does not interest me. I cannot explain it…it is what it is… Noah? What a superfluous, bland character. He’s just there….another prop?? As far as Abby and Zach? It can go two ways:1) what you said…Zach will do his thing and abscond with her….afterall Melissa needs maternity leave. So, this is the most ‘dependable’ thing to do.

Scott
Jordan
Devon
Chelsea
Zach

Well Timmy I agree with part of your list & your right there has been a lot of shooting lately (Too many)! If they kill off Scott, we have a story for another Dylan come back & a war between Sharon & Lauren. If it’s Jordan the Buzz viewers may blame & turn on Hillary, Devon I don’t see a story, Chelsea would end the hope of a come back Adam, Zack very possible but then someone else would take the bosses place in the drug ring.

OK–
Camryn Grimes gave a performance of a lifetime BRAVO!

Nonetheless;
Tessa – ‘She’s Just Not That Into You’ in that way, Mariah.

Tessa loves Mariah as a sister, the kiss was heartfelt loving, but not sexual with Tessa.

Feeling are complicated.. and Mariah has made Tessa feel obligated to return the feelings she doesn’t have in a sexual manner.

They will not be a couple, not going to happen.

Maya

I’m sorry, but are we watching the same story-line? Hearing the same dialogue?

Mariah and Tessa are in love. Period!

“Mariah has made Tessa feel obligated to return the feelings she doesn’t have in a sexual manner.”? Not even worthy of a response!

Are you familiar with Mal Young? A champion of meaningful LGBT representation on television. Unless CBS pulls the plug, Mariah and Tessa will indeed be a couple. Unlike Frank and co from GH, Mal doesn’t screw with his audience. The Mariah Tessa ship just set sail… I guarantee it will be sailing for a very long time!

Maya, I agree with you 100 percent. Mal is from a different background and has a different style. I am loving his touches. He will pursue gay couples. I’m sure he discussed it with CBS. He had to but I’m sure he also pointed out how the U.S. is so far behind with their ways of thinking. Tess and Mariah are hot together and I cannot wait for it to happen!

You may be right, Maya….I am just a little confused, though. Do you think Tessa’s past has to do with the fact that she is denouncing her love for Mariah?

I don’t mind her on stage….I don’t groan when I see her, as I do for some other characters, for instance, LOL. Tessa is just too good to be true. I hope I am wrong, for Mariah’s sake.

The interaction between Camyrn and Sharon, and then Camyrn and Cait were some of the most dramatic, gut-wrenching, realistic drama I have seen in a very long time. Very worthy of an Emmy submission and win especially for Camyrn Grimes. My heart ached for her exposure of her truth. Kudos to the writing and most definitely for the delivery. Mal please keep this story burning the screen. It may not be popular but it is the right thing to do.

I thought Sharon’s response was really beautiful. Sure, she was dealing with the reveal that her daughter was a lesbian in love with her half-brother’s girlfriend but at the same time she was just a mom who loved her child no matter what and wasn’t judging her. That went a long way toward redeeming Sharon in the parental department for me after the crap the writers have had her pull over the years (like letting her kids think she was dead after she escaped from jail after being charged with the death of Skye Lockhart and forgiving Adam for stealing… Read more »

Listen. I am watching these episodes as we speak, and I literally yelled at the tv “GIVE THIS GIRL HER EMMY!” Camryn Grimes has always been an AMAZING talent, and I am so glad that they were able to bring her back to the canvass. She has shown us that she is not that sweet little girl we grew to love when she played Cassie. She has shown us — with her depth, her humor, and her moxie — that she is more than capable of playing whatever the writers throw her way. The writing this week has been incredible,… Read more »

Camryn Grimes – EMMY !! I have ALWAYS loved the Mariah character. She was written very realistically and portrayed so sincerely. From the girl coming to town on Victor’s behalf to destroy lives, to the cult victim, to finding out Sharon is her mother, and now to this realization of struggling to accept herself as she is.

Mariah is heartbroken and she needs a friend. This is magical. Tessa has been lifted from the depths of long snore to a character with substance.

I’ve never liked Mariah, mostly because it felt like the show was trying to do a soft ret-con one of their best stories (the death of Cassie) by suddenly revealing Sharon forgot she had twins (yet another stupid storyline forced on Sharon Case who has deserved much better for the last decade). That aside, Mariah’s coming out story is the first time I’ve felt this character had a reason to be on the story canvas. Camryn Grimes is finally being given a real story with real emotion and her performance was fantastic. I hope the show plays this story slowly… Read more »

It makes me so happy to come on here and see that most people posting here are open to this story line and anything being said about it that isn’t praising it is constructive criticism. When I go on CDL there are almost nothing but homophobic comments whenever this storyline is brought up. As someone who has had to have a very similar conversation with my Mom..twice, this scene was done almost perfectly. It is true to life. As is the fact that Mariah is only now discovering that she may be bisexual, or perhaps a lesbian. Plenty of people,… Read more »

This was one of the best performances ! They have all done such a wonderful job being true to the storyline. Camryn Grimes knocks it out of the park. I have been a fan of other shows and I admit I never watched young and the restless until this storyline . That being said ,they are doing a fantastic job. Camyrn Grimes has a new fan here.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
