Young and the Restless spoilers this morning said Cait Fairbanks was released from her contract. The report came from Daytime Indulgence, and cited two independent sources they said told them the Tessa Porter actress is out. This didn’t sit well with many fans.
Now after an explosive day on social media, DI took down their tweets, their Twitter account, and seemingly their whole website. This could mean that either their story was wrong — or that they couldn’t take the feedback. We’ve seen Daytime Indulgence have a pretty spot-on record with their leaks and they rarely speak up unless they’re certain, so this is shocking.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Cait Fairbanks Out or Source Wrong?
Y&R spoilers this morning said the talented singer-songwriter was cut from the cast roster. Daytime Indulgence reported the news today citing several inside sources. Of course, Tessa Porter has been at loose ends for a while and is an often-criticized character because of her scheming ways.
Tessa Porter’s music career stalled, she blackmailed her girlfriend’s mother and was facing jail time. They wrapped that up by dropping charges. What’s strange is that Mariah Copeland was working to orchestrate a comeback for her. She recently got Ana Hamilton (Loren Lott).
There was even some Young and the Restless spoilers chatter that Mal Young as planning to introduce a love triangle of Tessa Porter, Mariah, and Anna. But after the website broke the news, Cait Fairbanks herself called it a “rumor”. Then the author of the report clapped back.

Y&R Spoilers: Lots of Firings Lately At CBS Soap
It’s not a stretch to imagine that the new writer/producer team would keep making cuts. Lately, it’s like one slash after another. This week, Young and the Restless spoilers confirmed Noemi Gonzalez was also let go. Pregnant Mia Rosales heads out of town soon. Perhaps, Arturo Rosales picks her up in his busted truck since Jason Canela was also released from his contract.
Since Mal Young himself was fired, sweeping changes hit Y&R. Spoilers show returns of fan-favorites like Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) is happening. Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) is back in the big chair at the GCPD and he’s pushing around Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso). Rey seems safe so far since he’s in a romance with a legacy character and Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) is still holding fast.
Young and the Restless: Cait Fairbanks Calls BS – Story Source Ghosts
After the story broke, Cait Fairbanks said it was just a rumor. Then the Daytime Indulgence blogger that wrote the story and claimed he had two sources hit back. He tweeted: “If it’s not a rumor then why did her manager not deny it to me?”.
A couple of hours later, the writer’s Twitter feed was deleted – as was that of the website. Not only that, but the entire website was taken down! This Y&R firestorm seems to have caved them in. But again, they are not usually a rumor mill and rarely post firings – and all they have posted have proved out.
So this is a very strange circumstance.
Young and the Restless – Will Network Comment?
So will Young and the Restless respond to the chatter through official channels? They rarely do – but every now and then will come out and speak up. When rumors flew about Jason Thompson being ousted so Billy Miller could reclaim the role of Billy Abbott, CBS released an announcement. That was back in 2017.
But it’s pretty uncommon for CBS to speak up so it will be interesting to see if they do this time. As of now, the usually reputable site that reported the firing has gone into hiding. They are in full ghost mode, so we’ll see what happens next.
