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?

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!

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?

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.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
