Is the soapy antics of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills about to get a dose of true soap opera? Looks like it according to a source through PEOPLE.com!

Daytime Emmy winner Eileen Davidson, who is returning on-screen next week as Kristen DiMera on Days of our Lives and then will soon be seen reprising her role of Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless looks to be headed to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

The Davidson speculation comes on the heels of last week’s news for the RHOBH franchise that former DAYS star Lisa Rinna (Ex-Billie) has joined the cast for the upcoming season!  If Davidson joins the series along with Rinna, they would be the new gals on the show replacing Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud.

So what do you think if this pans out to be true and Bravo confirms Davidson is part of the new season of RHOBH?  Will you be watching to see Eileen?   Let us know!

I can’t picture her joining RHOBH. She quit Days to spend more time with her family cuz the schedule was to hectic, but then gins a reality show? I know nothing about wjho she really is & want to keep it that way, hope this isn’t true. Im ok with Lisa Rinna on the show cause Ive seen her on all sorts of things over the years & she was always open about stuff.

I would love it! I love RHOBH and I love Eileen!!
I don’t remember Eileen ever saying that she was quitting Days to spend more time with family. That was Alison. Eileen took a role on Young and the Restless, so doesn’t seem as though she was trying to quit working as much.
I hope that this is true! I am glad they are replacing Carlton and Joyce. I didn’t get into either of them.

Last year when she left Days she did say she wanted to spend more time with her family as her reason for vacating the role— so Days staged that accident and had Kristen disappear—- then after a few months off, she returned to Days for a limited run and those shows will be airing soon and then she signed with Y&R.

Often the “I want to spend more time with my family” is the standard spin excuse they give to the press when the real reason could be a variety of behind the scenes disputes. But she did say it, not this year for her recent return to Days, but last year when she left in the first place.

I’m with you, won’t watch that crap.
The numbskulls over at abc-tv let excellent shows like One Life and All my Children go bye bye and yet we have inane trash on the airways including an over abundance of “reality shows” and competition shows.

That type of show is beneath her.
Can’t even imagine her on it.

She will probably back out. EVERYBODY on the net is upset she has chosen to belittle herself by doing this awful stuff.

I get Lisa Rinna doing it because she has been on a number of reality shows– but Eileen? Is she friends with Lisa? If so perhaps she is doing it to help her out, so Lisa would have a friend as a newbie on this show with her. I never watch that franchise and I doubt I would start because of ED, but perhaps her presence will bring in some new viewers—

From DAYS to Y&R is a step down…same thing from Y&R to Housewives…down and down again. I’m not liking her decisions.

I can’t believe she accepted that offer..
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is trash tv ..
She is taking a nosedive with that one..

ohh well, money is money 🙂

It’s a shame at how quickly her “fans” above are turning on her.

She’s a smart actress and she’s made the decision for herself. Not to please anyone else.

I guess that means her Days appearances are numbered.

Hard to argue that DAYS to Y&R is a step down. Whatever you might think about the relative quality of the two shows (and however much I might want to agree with you), Y&R has much better ratings and is a better employment bet in the long run, assuming that’s what she wants. She has a big fan following on both shows, so she’s not taking a risk in that respect. I have had the sense in interviews through the years that she enjoys playing Kristen more than Ashley, but that Y&R feels like home. I’d say Y&R has the edge from her perspective as an actress, especially if they were willing to accommodate her desire to work a little less than she was doing on DAYS.

I think she’s fantastic on Days. But she’s also a big part of YR, whether she’s been properly used or not.

Wouldn’t it be ironic if THIS time under the much HATED JFP, that she sees a resurgence. I’m not holding my breath, but it’ll be nice to have her on three different shows.

I’m incredibly disappointed in Eileen. I thought she was a classier woman than this. The entire Real Housewives franchise is just trash, filled with women who have no real talent. Is she desperate for money? That’s the only way I can reasonably see her lowering herself to these “standards”. It’s sad.

I agree. This is disappointing.

Sadly, having watched some of these “housewives” shows, I’m already wondering if her marriage to Vince Van Patten will survive through it. A good number of the married housewives become divorced during the show. I wonder what type of stress these things put on a relationship?

Since I have never watched any of the Real Housewives shows I can’t speak about them. But if they are as bad as what I am reading on this blog, I can see how Eileen would consider joining the show — she played Kristen — who raped a priest — and won an Emmy for it!

I know playing the rape story bothered Eileen because she stated so on Twitter. So aftrer playing Kristen the priest rapist, being on RHOBH may have looked like a high paying cake walk to Eileen. So I will not judge her harshly. Plus I don’t know what RHOBH is all about.

I don’t ever watch those sort of shows, but because they have “Housewives” in the title, I have to ask how in any stretch of the word’s meaning could entrepreneur-actress Lisa Rinna and actress-author Eileen Davidson be considered housewives?

Good point.

LOL. If you watched any of them, you quickly would see that most of them are not houseWIVES —- the husband fled a long time ago or recently split. Many of them are single woman.

Crap show made for crap people that make women look like crap. Really disappointed in Eileen but I guess a check is a check. Honestly, I thought she had more integrity than this.

Eileen is a top rated actress… I too am shocked that she chose to do this ridiculous show…however with that being said… who knows what the future holds at Y&R…AND this show is paying her $750,000…. a little hard to say no to that…. crazy housewives or not…

Lisa Rinna is a terrible actress…she does any reality show as long as it gets her on tv… this show is nuts to have signed her…

PatF

GO Eileen! One of the most in demand actresses it seems!

Can’t WAIT to see you back at home on YR and at your new Bev Hills home!

Cheers!

I have to echo others: why would she even consider doing something like this? I am hoping this is one of those rumors that turns out to be unfounded. I hate the idea.

PLEASE say it ain’t so!!!!! Are you kidding me????? Eileen is WAY TOO CLASSY AND WAY TOO TALENTED to get mixed up in that RHOBH CRAZINESS!!!!! Lisa Rinna (on the other hand)…I can see why. As far as I’m concerned, that Lisa chick will appear in just about anything. Bottom Line Here: Eileen…you are WAY BETTER than those RHOBH train-wrecks!!!!! Eileen…PLEASE…DON’T DO IT!!!!!

I’ve never watched RHOBH or any of the other Real Housewives shows. The addition of Rinna and Davidson is just cause today take a look to see what it is all about. Don’t know if I will stay, but will be fun to see what it is all about.

If Eileen has the stamina to do three shows more power to her. She has a son who will to to college in at a few short years. She will have to pay for his education. So strike while the iron is hot, Eileen!

I enjoyed Alison Sweeney’s TV show Hollywood Girls Night and wish that show would return. If RHOBH with Rinna and Davidson is like Sweeney’s show, it will be nice.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
