A Slow Burn For Mariah & Tessa!
THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Tessa may have treated Mariah shabbily by exploiting her when she used her private journal to write a very public song, but in recent months the two women seem to be cordial, if not downright friendly! So what’s up with their relationship, exactly? Is romance on the agenda?
For her part, Cait Fairbanks (Tessa) would love to restart the Tessa/Mariah love train! “Everything takes time; everyone is impatient,” she says with a smile. “I understand. [The storyline between Tessa and Mariah] was moving so quickly, and then it got put on the backburner. But I feel like that’s a natural progression for relationships. It doesn’t all happen right away. No good ones do!”
Especially when the reason two people had a falling out was because one betrayed the other! “There has been a lot of pain, [so] you need time for healing… and understanding and forgiveness,” reminds the actress. “You can’t just jump back into something. A lot has to happen before you are ready for a relationship again!”
Mariah and Tessa may yet get another chance at romance.
