This is a long way from Genoa City! THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Cait Fairbanks (Tessa) is doing a little moonlighting as she makes a guest appearance on THE GOLDBERGS in the episode airing Wednesday, May 12 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC! “Got to guest star on THE GOLDBERGS and had a freaking blast,” the actress shared on Instagram along with a selfie of her period ‘80s wardrobe for the sitcom. “Airing tonight at 8 p.m.!”
In this episode, titled “Alligator Schwartz,” Erica fears that Geoff has moved on from their breakup and started dating someone else. Meanwhile, Adam tries to find Dave Kim a prom date when he remembers their pact that they won’t go to prom if they don’t both have someone to go with. Fairbanks is playing a character named Paula Hogan, but there are no other details about her role. Given that her dressing room selfie clothes don’t look like prom attire (and Fairbanks is a bit old for high school), it’s more likely she’s the “other woman” Erica is worried about. But you’ll just have to tune in to find out!
Before joining the cast of Y&R in 2017 as musician Tessa Porter, Fairbanks could be seen making appearances in primetime series like EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS, TWO AND A HALF MEN, THE MIDDLE, and K.C. UNDERCOVER. She’s also a talented musician and has continued releasing music while appearing on the CBS sudser every day.
If you can’t watch THE GOLDBERGS when it premieres at 8 p.m. ET on ABC (or if you’re reading this after it’s already aired), you can always stream it online the following day on demand and on Hulu! And of course, keep watching Fairbanks as Tessa on Y&R as she helps Mariah navigate the pitfalls of carrying Abby and Chance’s baby!
