'Y&R' Speculation: Summer Clashes With Chelsea – New Feud in Genoa City?

Young And The Restless speculations imply Summer Newman (Alison Lanier) will ruffle feathers on the CBS soap. Summer returned to Genoa City to join her husband Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and stepson Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez). 

Kyle needed his wife's support as he dealt with his "late" mother's return. Summer wasted no time telling Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters) just what she thought of her. Diane is not on Summer's good side.

Nevertheless, Summer returned with her own problems. It seems there are issues at Marchetti's. Summer discovered problems with the books. Then Summer suggested that Jabot purchase Marchetti's. 

Y&R spoilers for the week of May 16 to 20 reveal that Kyle will have a major decision to make. Kyle may contemplate Summer's suggestion. Or it may concern Diane. Either way, Summer is at a crossroads in her career on Young And The Restless.

Y&R: Lauren Recruits Summer?

Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Brennan) was very happy with Summer when she worked for her. Summer only left because of Sally Spectra's (Courtney Hope) manipulations. 

It would be a perfect time to hire Summer. Lauren is uneasy with her husband working for Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). Young And The Restless spoilers for the upcoming week tease that Lauren will panic when Michael Baldwin (Christian Leblanc) takes on another dangerous assignment.

When Lauren urged Michael to quit working for Victor, he was reluctant. Moreover, Michael questioned if Lauren was willing to walk away from Fenmore's. 

Summer would have a great opportunity to run Lauren's company. Then Lauren might convince Michael to walk away from Victor. Not everyone would be thrilled with Summer's new position. Young And The Restless spoilers for the upcoming weeks suggest that Summer's new job will cause friction.

Summer and Chelsea Clash on Young and the Restless?

Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) has had workplace conflicts before. Sally certainly rubbed Chelsea the wrong way at Newman Fashions.

Chelsea did not like Sally or any of her ideas. Was that because Sally was younger with different ideas? Or was it Sally's growing relationship with Adam Newman (Mark Grossman)?

It is likely that Chelsea could resent having Summer for a boss. Chelsea may believe that she was passed over to run Fenmore's. Not to mention that Summer is much younger than her. 

Summer may come in hot and make sweeping changes. Chelsea may object to Summer's new role. Perhaps Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) will have to be the peacemaker once again. Will Summer and Chelsea learn to get along on The Young And The Restless?
