Anita returns to cause trouble in GC

The actress who plays Anita, Catherine Bach, posted a picture to Instagram with the caption #mamasback. In the photo, she posed with Gina Tognoni (Phyllis), Christian LeBlanc (Michael), and reporter Michael Fairman.

It's still a mystery what will bring Anita back to Genoa City. She usually pops up when Chelsea needs some family support. Could be a clue that Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Chelsea are about ready to break up?

Is it a clue Christian's paternity shocker is coming?

It's a definite possibility, but the fans are going to have to tune in to find out. "Young and the Restless" spoilers suggest Anita's returning air date will be mid to late February. There has been social media buzz about Christian's paternity coming out over February sweeps. Chelsea has been keeping the secret that Adam is really Christians father.

Nick believes that he is the dad, and he has not even considered the fact that his brother Adam to be a son's father.

If Nick finds out the juicy tidbit, he will lash out at Chelsea and probably end the relationship. It's all going to set the scene for Adam's (formerly Justin Hartley) return and Nick and Sharon's (Sharon Case) reunion.

Melissa Ordway exits but will return in March

"Young and the Restless" spoilers tease that Melissa Ordway, the actress who plays Abby Newman, will be off the canvas for a few weeks.

Melissa recently had a baby and will take some time to spend with her family. She should be back by early March.

On Tuesday's show, Abby told Lily (Christel Khalil) that she planned to move to Paris so she could oversee the Brash & Sassy launch. Of course, Lily was shocked by her decision and questioned if it had anything to do with the whole Scott (Daniel Hall) mess back home.

"Young and the Restless" spoilers state that Abby just needs some time away from Genoa city so she can process how she feels about Scott, Zack (Ryan Ashton), and the whole prostitution scandal. Lily thinks the break will be good for her friend, and she hopes that she'll come home ASAP.
