This week, Eileen Davidson reported to Days of our Lives to reprise her role as Kristen DiMera! As previously reported, she will be appearing again on the NBC soap this summer!

However, today via news from Soap Opera Digest, Davidson is taking a Salem time out to head to Genoa City and The Young and the Restless to return in the role of Ashley Abbott and tape scenes on March 20th, for episodes that will air on the CBS soap opera on April 18th, and also April 21st.

When Davidson returns to Y&R she will not be alone! Her on-screen sis, Beth Maitland (Traci)  is also coming home for what looks to be an Abbott, “family event”.   Maitland will just appear on the April 16th episode of Y&R.

So, glad to know Eileen can reprise her role of Ashley for a minute, while still creating havoc as Kristen on DAYS? What is the “family event” that will bring Ashley and Traci home to GC?  Let us know!

Happy she’s doing both, but would rather her focus on Kristen. There is more story there than for Ashley right now!

Could it be Abby & Tyler will be getting married?

Or Jack finds out he’s not Summers father? or the new Kyle comes back?

Exciting news to hear! I just love Kristen and Susan…and Sister Mary…and Tommy!!!!

Y&R is crazy, which makes me crazy for DAYS!!!

Not since 1983 when Heather Locklear bounced from “Dynasty” to “T.J. Hooker,” has an actor floated back-and-forth so much.

More power to her. She should be cloned for every soap.

One day– can’t be anything big like a wedding or funeral, those usually play out over a couple of days—- could be that fashion show Jabot is putting on. Lucky for ED Sony owns both shows otherwise I don’t think she could soap hop so frequently, but as a fan of hers and both of her characters I am glad she can play both.

I would laugh hysterically if Beth Maitland ever appeared on Days at the same time as Eileen Davidson.

Days of Our Lives – make it happen. Seriously!

My favorite actor is Jack. I love when the Abbotts get together. Maybe Kyle will be back or Summer is leaving!!

Hallelujah! Awesome news and now David Tom is back it will be great to see both sisters interacting with Tom….I can’t wait…I still think YR has had brain cramp for not putting ED on contract and having Ashley front & center in story. ED could do both soaps, Days on recurring basis, if ED is up to the task. Sony owns both so it could be done unless the obstruction is the networks.

I think that regular viewers of both DAYS and Y&R would overwhelmingly vote to have Eileen on DAYS full time. Kristen is much more exciting than Ashley!!!

Oh yes, we definitely would. I think, it would be amazing if ‘Days’ had Eileen full time and Y&R on a recurring basis.

SOD corrected air dates – it’s April 18th and April 21st – (April 19th is Saturday). Those dates are Good Friday and Easter Monday this year. Maybe, that’s the event?

I love Kristin but I come to love ED as Ashley Abbott and will always want her on contract at YR first & foremost. I love if she could do both. She played Ashley from ’82 to 88, returned in ’99 to 07, crossed over to BB in ’07-08 and returned to YR from ’08-12….she was on DOOL ’93-98 & again ’12-13. Her strength & longevity is with YR. I respectfully disagree.

David Tom is a good actor but can not play Billy like Billy Miller. David was Billy while he was a kid growing up but now he looks like a child compared to Victoria. Im sorry but that story line was ruined when Billy Miller left.

Days / Y&R Eileen is amazing.

Eileen is amazing! I know she took a break for personal reasons, I think it was her son perhaps, so it’s great to see they are doing well.

I would think she will have a lot to do with the way the writers will handle Sami’s character…. she has said she is leaving at the end of the year….I cannot imagine they could write her off…..

Perhaps they can recast her with Julie Marie Berman ?? I miss her so much! Maybe Kelly Sullivan?

Fran

I like Ashley but I would love to see Beth Tracey stay on at Y & R. We need a few more good strong vets and she is such a great actress.
