Eileen Davidson Back For Some More Y&R!

Eileen Davidson was back to work yesterday at The Young and the Restless!  According to Soap Opera Digest, some additional dates where fans will see the return of Ashley Abbott have been announced.  They are November 27th and December 2nd.

And if you recall, Davidson will also return for a three episode stint starting on-air on October 25th on the CBS Soap.

Long time cast mate Eric Braeden (Victor) tweeted his enthusiasm on getting to work again with his former on-screen flame: “Worked with Eileen Davidson today! It felt like old times! She’s great to work with!”

Which brings us to several questions to Y&R fans:  Since Davidson is popping up on-screen as the beloved Ashley, do you hope something can be worked out where the character stays put in Genoa City for a good length of time? Should Victor and Ashley somehow reconnect romantically one more time? What will happen to Victor and Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott) marriage when she admits the truth of who her long lost son is to Vic? Will this cause another ripple in their often times combustible relationship? Weigh-in!

Doubt Ashley will get any decent screen time now that this has turned into the DULLAN and Adam Hour.

The desperate attempts from falling ratings with these current stories have just left fans wondering why they still watch this show and how much Bill Bell’s creativity and morals are missed. Yeah that’s right Chelsea you just wait for those eyes. You snake! Im sure if you let Chelsea near Johnny she’d have no problem ripping the eyes right out of little Johnny’s still warm body. When did Chelsea ever give a shit about that child? NEVER! Guess delia will save Johnny and Connor. With Chelsea and her schemes nobody is safe. Well. we know that Victoria will have a… Read more »

Hope that Ashley will stay awhile but her performance level on Days was top-notch. She plays a better villain than a sweet Ashley as she tends to be a bit boring in her roles.

The Victor Ashley ship has not only sailed it has capsized and sunk. Its time to make a commitment to Victor and Nikki as a couple. Them breaking up and divorcing and reuniting is so old hat and boring. Victor’s 15 marriages is just ridiculous. For Ashley to tread back into those waters would make her as certifiable as her DAYS character kristen.

Smart man, Johnny! I agree. Keep Victor and Nikki together now and forever and allow them to face trials and tribulations (and longlost children) together. Look, Nikki tolerated Victor’s affairs and such. Perhaps he could show one ounce of concenr for his ailing wife and this surprise son. The Ashley-Victor story was forever corrupted and ruined by Adam in his psycho phase. The more we distance ourselves from that mess, the better. It was not well played and no one really paid for their sins… on any front. Characters were sullied. Aaaarrgggh! It was bad! I like an Ashley who… Read more »

As I said down below throw her into a storyline with Dylan, Nikki would go nuts. Nikki & Ashley use to have the best cat fights and ED can play a love interest for a younger man it would be fantastic to even see old man Victor go bonkers also.

Love is lovelier the second time around– but when it is the passes that number it is just sad. Even in the soap world there should be a limit on the number of times one couple can break up and reunite later on. So I agree Johnny– let Victor and Nikki stay together and act their age for a change, and leave poor Ashley out of it– that triangle has long gone dead.

I’d love it if she would ruffle Victor’s feathers. He has gotten just too cocky of late.

I am anxious to see how Victor is going to react to the news that NIkki had a child she gave up for adoption. Victor has been very judgmental of mothers of late, especially mothers who have given up their children.

I want her back on Days. I used to watch young and restless years ago, so I know her as Ashley. But Kristen is way better, Days will not be the same without her.

I hope they write better story for her this time around. She has proven by playing Kristen on Days that she can deliver great performances when given the right material. They drained the life out of Ashley before she left Y&R.

You want to bring her back full time the story I would put her in would be a love interest for Dylan that would make Nikki’s toes curl and it might put some excitement in one of the most boring characters on Daytime First she takes her husband then she takes her son..

I love her on both shows: the elegant, dignified, intellectual beauty on Y&R and the devilish, insecure vixen on DAYS. I wish she could just go back and forth as storyline dictated. She’s a proven talent and asset to both shows, so maybe they can work around her schedule so we can all enjoy her talents, no matter which show we love. Welcome back, Ashley, even if it’s just for a little bit.

well said…. dang! wishful thinking I wish she could just go back and forth as storyline dictated. She’s a proven talent and asset to both shows, so maybe they can work around her schedule so we can all enjoy her talents, no matter which show we love. had to highlight – again. I’m in a quandary… yes.. these daytime actors experience burnout… ie: due to the high level and demand of schedule that being said…. judging from the SOD interview with ED my take on the article…. “common thread” if you will… “I just don’t know” and “I don’t know”… Read more »

She will be so missed as Kristen. When she plays Ashley, it’s like she’s half asleep but with Kristen, she is genius.

I may be alone here but i want Eilleen on GH! Yes as Julian Jerome’s ex or maybe even as a Jerome family member….. can you imagine Eillen looking straight in Sonny’s eyes as she tells him: Don’t you ever think you can mess with my family? oooo how that would be good

It seems like Angelica is wanting this actress back. Every time they announce she’s coming back she tweets…otherwise she’s pretty quiet when in comes to her number one show in her lineup.

I’m excited, but would be more thrilled to her she’s back on contract in the role she originated.

Love ED!

I think that Eileen Davidson should go back to DOOL (if they’ll have her). I mean…Y and R is turning into an unnecessary and out-of-control BLOODBATH because of that heartless Jill Farren Phelps. And, besides…I think that Kristen is a far more entertaining, dimensional and complex character than Ashley. KRISTEN TRULY ROCKS!!!!! I’m just saying………..

“Oh! More than saying”

…it’s the truth

sorry about Y&R… it stinks, period.

save for Adam….

Kristen is a far more entertaining, dimensional and complex character than Ashley.

I Love You, Eileen

I do not think she should go back to DOOL because she languished at YawneR
a couple times before DAYS showed how her talent talent could be utilized.

She was deflated at YacKeR and pumped up at DOOL. I urge DAYS viewers
not to follow her to Y&R. Our chains have been yanked!!!

DAYS did nothing but appreciate her talent and now YawneR wants to benefit!!!

Well, yay! BUT, GH sprinkles some of their vets in and out of stories and I find it annoying! Ashley is either in or out? Bring her back full time and let her and Victor find each other again or have her and Adam hook up. That would get the mustache twirling! She is an Abbott and that is an important character for Jack to have around. He bounces stuff off Kyle. Jack is wasting his breath. Kyle is a clueless underwear model! You need money to sign Ashley.?Cut out the whole Winters family. They are boring and irrelevant!

no no no. do not bring her back. she has been married to almost every man that has ever been on the show, and now she is flirting with stitch that is young enough to be her son. . no more syrupy sweet Ashley.. please.

In a statement from a rep for Heche’s friends and family, they expressed: “Today we lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend.  Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy. Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”

Heche is legally dead according to California law, although her heart is still beating she has not been taken off life support in order to allow for organ donations to take place and to find the right recipients.

Anne’s eldest son, Homer 20, said in a statement to PEOPLE on his mom’s passing:  “My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Throughout her career Heche appeared on TV shows and films includingL Men in Trees, If These Walls Could TalkDonnie BrascoI Know What You Did Last SummerSix Days, Seven Nights, and Gus Van Zant’s 1998 remake of Psycho. Back in 2020, Anne became a celebrity contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

Heche’s stormy relationship with Ellen DeGeneres made headlines throughout her career, and today, DeGeneres shared: “This is a sad day. I’m sending Anne’s children, family and friends all of my love.”

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
