Young & Restless Preview: As Summer Gets Visitors, Phyllis Declares War On Tara and Sally
Things are about to get heated in Genoa City!
Usually, we’d say that two-on-one hardly seems like a fair fight. But when the one is The Young and the Restless‘ Phyllis and she’s taking on upstarts Tara and Sally, it’s a safe bet that our money’s going on Summer’s mom. And this week, the gloves are coming off as Phyllis not only sets out to destroy the young women she believes drove her daughter out of town but gets an assist from a rather unlikely source.
“It’s safe to say this may or may not end according to plan,” quipped Courtney Hope to followers as she tweeted out a preview of this week’s action (which can be seen below). In the video, a clearly ticked Phyllis dubs Sally and Tara “those two little girls” while vowing to get proof that they are the reason Summer dumped Kyle and started a new life in Milan.

Meanwhile, we’ll finally get a bit more info about what Summer’s been up to since jetting off to Italy. Why? Because this week, Nikki and Victor — as part of their romantic getaway — pay their granddaughter a visit. That said, we suspect Summer probably won’t tell them the reason she got out of town so quickly. Why? Because if Victor knew what Tara had done he’d likely jump on the Newman jet and deal with “those little girls” himself!

Calling Phyllis “spiteful and vicious” (Oh, honey, you don’t know the half of it!), Sally insists the older woman is “making a big mistake underestimating” her. But we think it’s Sally and Tara who are making that mistake… and that’s before Phyllis joins forces with Billy. While we’re not sure exactly what he brings to the table, his presence will at least balance out the teams.
Now it’s time for you to place your bets. Do you think Tara and Sally are outgunned, or might they manage to pull off a surprise victory against Phyllis? And when all is said and done, will Summer return hope before Michael Mealor’s Kyle exits the canvas so that Skyle will get a happily-ever-after?

See if you agree with the bickering duo we put at the top of the chart!
<p>What had poor Jenny ever done to snobbish Liza? She’d simply radiated a quantity of decency that teenage dream Greg couldn’t resist.</p>
<p>Filed under “It goes without saying” is the fact that there was no love lost between Salem’s sweetheart (then Melissa Reeves) and the strumpet who seduced both her son and husband.</p>
<p>So nasty was Genoa City’s original Mean Girl that she didn’t just go after sweet Traci’s crush Danny, she stole her high-school-yearbook pose, too. Bee-yotch!</p>
<p>When it comes to feuding — and it inevitably does — these two never choke. Well, unless you mean like this, in which case, yeah, they choke a lot.</p>
<p>If ever you overhear Summer’s tormentor and her mother talking about having drinks and chilling, run for cover — <em>this</em> is what they mean.</p>
<p>From the moment Josh’s “late” wife rose from the grave, his new missus did everything in her power to make us wish she’d stayed six feet under.</p>
<p>We couldn’t even risk putting these two together for a photo, not knowing how intense is the animosity stemming from their years of brawling over Bo.</p>
<p>A classic case of “like mothers, like daughters,” the stepsisters have been following in Taylor and Brooke’s footsteps for years, fighting over a guy that they’d <span style="text-decoration: line-through">probably</span> both be better off without!</p>
<p>What’s that expression on Viki’s face? That’s her realizing that she’d been wrong for years: In fact, she <em>could</em> hate her wicked stepmother more. And at that moment she did.</p>
<p>What the hell — and we <em>do</em> mean hell — did these formidable foes talk about when they found themselves at the same bar at the same time? Nothing much, just… ahem, <em>diss</em> and that.</p>
<p>Jack and Jennifer’s daughter welcomed to the family her new half sister the only way one really could after the vixen seduced her husband and wrecked her parents’ marriage.</p>
<p>“Competitive” doesn’t even <em>begin</em> to cover the dynamic between these perpetual romantic rivals. Erica couldn’t so much as let Brooke peek in the mirror without vying for face time!</p>
<p>If looks could kill, Ridge’s most frequent wife would’ve made damn sure that one of those times his favorite ex “died,” she’d <em>stayed</em> dead.</p>
<p>Ever since the redhead became Nick’s “other woman” way back when, she and his first wife have made it their mission to one-shtup each other.</p>
<p>Like any other sisters, these two probably could have been taught to share. Except that they were both so dang possessive of Austin.</p>
<p>Portraits of determination, Finn’s bride and biological <span style="text-decoration: line-through">monster</span> mother have proven to be as unwilling to lose their war with one another as they are this staring contest.</p>
<p>Know how you can tell that this is a behind-the-scenes shot? On screen, you’d never in a million <em>years</em> catch the hell-on-wheels homewrecker this close to the Cricket that so bugs her. Unless, that is, she’s moving in for a slap.</p>
<p>Thank goodness Jason’s exes eventually buried the hatchet, ’cause you <em>know</em> a feud has gotten out of hand when one of its participants is standing by and letting the other’s child get kidnapped.</p>
<p>Do we have to tell you that Kristen (then Eileen Davidson) didn’t like losing John to his true love, or… What’s that? The picture said all that needs to be said? Yeah, we thought so, too.</p>
<p>Their loathing of one another is so great, flowers wilt in their presence. (Note: The ones behind them in this picture were obviously fake, or they’d be toast.)</p>
<p>And you thought <em>you</em> had a bad relationship with your mother-in-law! (Then again, you probably didn’t marry both of your mother-in-law’s sons as well as her husband. Twice.)</p>
<p>No wings required: Fur flies anytime Sonny’s moll gets within hissing distance of his babymama. Well, this one in particular. (Sonny has a <em>lot</em> of babymamas.)</p>
<p>As thorny as the frenemies’ relationship tended to be, if either of them ever decided to send the other one flowers, you could bet that this was going to be the means of delivery.</p>
<p>Something you’ll never hear these two slap-happy nemeses say: Hit me with your best shot. They’ve smacked each other so often, it’s a wonder they still have any cheek left!</p>
<p>After the former let the latter’s daughter plunge to her death, and the latter let the former mourn the “death” of her husband, Webster’s started scrambling for a new, more colorful word for “hatred.”</p>
<p>So epic were the brawls between the man-stealing baby-swapper and her favorite victim, they took the duo from their original soap all the way to <em>The Bold and the Beautiful.</em></p>
<p>Ironic that in the end, the Forrester matriarch came to regard as a daughter the mantrap that she’d long called the Slut From the Valley. That <em>had</em> to sting, right, Felicia?</p>
