Eileen Davidson Back To Y&R For A Visit

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott), who last aired in late October of 2018 on The Young and the Restless will be making a guest-stint appearance on the CBS daytime drama series.

According to Soap Opera Digest,Davidson will appear on the upcoming March 28th and 29th episodes.

So, what brings Ashley back into the fold? In her Y&R exit interview with Michael Fairman for the Michael Fairman Channel, she revealed that she would certainly entertain the notion of coming back for a stint if she was asked; whether it be for big Abbott gathering or something of that nature.

Eileen expressed to SOD: “I said on my last day that I would love to come back for a visit, and I was lucky enough to have Josh Griffith (head writer, Y&R) take me up on my offer.”

So what will bring Eileen back for a visit on Y&R? Comment below

I sense this will help repair the Abbott family. Even if Miss Davidson opts not to return as a contract player, periodic returns as this will do wonders for the soap, her character, and those close to her. Ashley cannot simply disappear. Maybe the new production team is more sensitive to fans and our love for the legacy players and characters. I am hopeful.

I don’t think Ashley can ever repair the damage she inflicted on Jack. If there is any justice, Jack will surprise Ashley by saying he now has the means to destroy her both personally and professionally. And he will if she does not deal.

Pauls back!!!, JT is back!!!! …
..and now Ashley for a visit?!!
..all is right again in Genoa city!
Thank you Tony and Josh!!
With the fave returns and writing exciting again and some vintage background music playing I feel y n r is back!!!!
Lets get some other faves back ..Jill, Nina, Olivia, Malcolm, Mamie, Dinah( where she disapear to?), Avery, Adam…and hopefully Colleen from the dead to reunite with JT and correct that horrible wrong that Mal Young and MAB commited! ..just some wishful thinking

GC isn’t the same without her. Good news!

Celia
Celia

Oh, Lew, my friend….so far GC has hit doomsdom, for sure. My beef is with the writers who decided to introduce the Rosales family!! Why? Perhaps I only speak for myself…..
What if Mia, herself, is surprised by the result of the pregnancy test? What if she is, indeed, pregnant? Does this mean she will not go to jail?
She insists she didn’t mean yo hurt Lola, thst it was an accident. Really? What she did is still a crime!!
Yet, Sharon goes to jail while Rey’s WIFEY escapes the heat?

Diana

Y & R had to bring in a Hispanic family in the 21st century, just like the way they brought in the Winters family on the 1980’s.

Celia

Ps. It’s a trick!! Mia somehow managed to steal the pregnant woman’s urine!! LOL
Please pardon the typos—-out the door!!

Lew S.
Lew S.

No, Celia my friend, it isn’t just you. Y&R has been too much Rosales. But, I think that is going to change, with Paul coming back to the canvas, Eileen Davidson making a special appearance and maybe more and bringing back the character of Adam and maybe Chelsea. Regarding Dudley Do Right Rey, you are correct once again! Mia can strong-arm Abby and assault Lola, because she thought she was Abby and get a pass, because she is supposedly carrying his kid. But, he showed no mercy to Sharon, the woman he supposedly loves?

Celia
Celia

Hey, Lew,
I know It’s just a soap, but I get so upset over these soapland injustices…..I want to scream—-and I did. LOL.
I hope you’re right, my friend…..that the distorted picture will soon clear and straighten out with the ‘second coming’ of Paul!!
How unfair is Rey? I truly wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt—-he did seem so ‘upright’. If he does not arrest Mia ( I don’t believe she is really pregnant….I think she manipulated the test), I will call Paul myself and tell him what really happened. LOL.❤️

Celia
Celia

Ray will keep this a secret, Lew—-of course, he would.He thinks she’s carrying his child.
Arturo is still blaming Kyle—-this is too much soap fodder—as it should be?
Another thing? Mia will have to do something desperate to get pregnant—–which means she is on the prowl. I doubt Rey will want anything to do with her? —-same old same old regenerated story.
Then, again…..this may all be in my head.

I’m always up for a visit from Eileen Davidson! A two-day stint is better than no stint! I wonder if this is going to lead to a long-term return like it did last time, or if she’ll stick to being a recur-guest!

Patrick
Patrick

shucks… her son is 14. I hope she’s enjoying his company till the teen years plus take. I HOPE THIS IS A START of seeing Ms. Davidson returns’ that much more frequent… this will keep her in the “arena”… very much like how @DAYS wants her… ie: Ali Sweeney must be loving this as well. you cannot keep your arsenal at bay. these are powerhouses’

be that as it may: I’ve always saluted WOMANHOOD. home and work… etc etc etc PLUS rearing your children. WOW… that’s a lot of keep.

I salute this woman PLUS

What will bring her back: a wedding (her daughter) or a death (her mother). I don’t think they’ll need her vote to oust Phyllis.

Bart

Very cool!!

It’s no secret that she was not a fan of Mal Young as well – that “Jack is not an Abbott” story-line was a colossal dud; many feel it was hastily re-written to accommodate Eileen’s exit from “Y & R”. I’m sure if she had stayed, that lame story-line would still be continuing.

Bart, I continually see you posting on several soap sites about this, and you’re continuously wrong. She never stated she disliked Mal, at all, in any interview or statement. Stop spreading libel because of your own displeasure with someone who was hired to do a job. Maybe don’t live in a state of hatred.

Bart
Bart

HAHAHA – do you know what libel is???? I work for a law firm and you know not of what you speak – maybe you should mind your own business and get a life!!!

BTW – “As The World Turns” is a done deal – get over it!!!

Scott (ATWT Fan)

I do know what libel is, and you are an ugly, ugly human being; I’ve seen you call many people names online, and maybe it’s time to get offline and go study law a bit more, because I have a feeling you’ll be needing it.

And, before you say I’m all YOU names, let me preface it: your attitude is what I am referring to as “ugly.”

Abby’s wedding. Neal’s funeral. Like that.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Unfortunately, I doubt it’s for Neil, since it was revealed that Neil’s exit won’t happen until April, and since this is a March return, it’s lining up for Abby’s wedding to Arturo, especially if it’s only a two-episode stint.

Violet Lemm

Hopefully she will join forces with Jack to rescue Jabot out of Phyllis’s clutches.

Harry

Phyllis driving me crazy (and we all know that’s a short drive for me). I detest how she’s trying to talk her way out of this latest jam she’s gotten herself into. They need to put a scarlet letter on her forehead. I think “B” would be a good choice as it could stand for “betrayer” AND “bitch.” She is still pretending that all her actions were done for the greater good of Nikki and Victoria. Hell, I would have more respect for her if she just admitted that yes, she was just looking out for herself when she threw The Three Stooges under the bus. The irony here is it was Phyllis who talked Curly, Larry and Mo into not calling the police and into covering up the accident. This accident was not a federal crime until Phyllis turned it into one.
On topic–glad Ashely is coming back for a visit, and I hope she comes back for good. Eileen Davidson certainly is talented and a beauty impervious to the ravages of time.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Harry,
I agree, as a lot of us do about Phyllis, and now she has recruited Kerry in her fight to keep her position at Jabot. Wouldn’t one little board meeting solve the problem? Don’t know much about business, but they have solved a lot of issues there, some petty ones, I thought too, at the time.I can’t believe how she has talked herself into thinking she’s saved the other three woman, by spilling her guts. I hoped Summer would say, “what have you done to my aunt and grandma”, but I forgot, she is her mother’s daughter. Phyllis’s scarlet letter would be a T for traitor.
As far as Ashley, I am trying to forgive her, because it was that S.O.B Mal Young, that made her do those rotten things to Jack. Bill Bell was probably spinning in his grave over John’s “Beauty”.

Mary
Mary

I disagree! I want Jack to verbally take Ashley down. There can be no tolerance and/or forgiveness for what Ashley did to Jack.

Patrick
Patrick

was the back story that Ashley was never ever made ceo of Jabot ? AND that Jack knowing all these years that she , by blood, was not biologically an Abbott ?

Nevertheless : Jack Sr. LOVED his diamond . just doted . dang who wouldn’t

Jack’ a big boy… he couldn’t seriously “challenge” Ashley with any thing could he? with Ashley being in full control of the “family” patents ? she could quash in a heartbeat all Jack “good” intention.

yet she left town because of all the hurt she caused. WITH backbone… kept her rightful place bequeathed by daddy

it’s only a matter of time , no?

WHEN will Jack ever find love peace and happiness? why not?

Beth Chamberlin’ Beth, ex-GL
Elizabeth Keifer’ Blake, ex-GL
Robin Christopher’, Skye, ex-GH

let’s show Jack – SHARING – his heart mind and soul with a woman with intellect, passion, and fire

Patrick
Patrick

COME ON Y&R : if you truly think just Jack fighting with the dead nuMANs is all this show needs ? you are all off your rocker. I swear… NO MORE PHYLLIS.. retread

NOW is the time like never before to bring FIRE back to Peter Bergman’ Jack Abbott throttle

I see one of three ladies ^^^ with

margherita
margherita

I’ve been saying Beth Chamberlin and Peter Bergman would be magic, ever since GL ended. Make it happen!!!

Patrick
Patrick

FOR – the simple reason.. that the show for whatever reason. dwindles down the Abbott Clan to “Just jack” at this point to see Jack and Victor fight to the death… blah blah blah… at least let Jack have a life !!!! no?

or perhaps it’s a moot point… LOOK at how DISRESPECTFUL Victor is with Nikki… forever and a day. THAT will never change… unless it’s ratings sweep and the hankies are brought out for a spell.

Jack can at least have a NEW WIFE ! his own romance… I agree with you.. I keep coming back to Beth Chamberlin as well. as much as I love ex-Blake … AND a so close 2nd ex-Skye.

with a new head writer and new executive producer… JUST JACK , NEEDS a good balance, someone to take Genoa City by storm.

doesn’t it just leave a pit in your stomach… w/Phyllis .. come on writers… sharing Phyllis with Billy ????? DONE DONE DONE. NO MORE PHYLLIS …

Patrick

why don’t you want new, after reading this;

Peter Bergman gets “work” LOL rain passionate turn

I did not like Ashley , nope..
Not speaking of the actress I know nothing of her to have a personal opinion..
00ohh forgot- when she joined the drugies alcoholics bottom of the rung Housewife’s, that said more about her then I’ll say, but still I know nothing of her personally outside of that horrible faux pas ..

Ashley was always a self-centered holier than Thu biotch, she was a piece of nasty work.. lol give that character credit for that whatever.
Anyways, it will be fun to see her again..
she’s back for a vote/Abbott business or!
something to do with Niel.. most likely.
(maybe they will find out they run away together, living happily ever after – a happy ending for Niel..

Harry
Harry

Don’t hold back, Su00,tell us how you really feel! I hated the writing which was afforded to her. What she did to Jack was beyond the pale and what made it worse was she continued to play the victim. No, you don’t get to be both the tormentor and tormented at the same time! It doesn’t work that way.
I also hate that Jack continues to apologize for Ashely’s abhorrent behavior. Just yesterday he apologized again to Abby for driving her mother away. Stop that nonsense! And while we are at it, can they recast Kerry? She’s far too young for Jack and she’s also a very stiff, wooden actress. I swear, they could recast her with the log from Twin’s Peak and Jack would have a more exciting love interest.

Patrick
Patrick

could it have some thing to do with “Mother” ? I don’t know the progression of Dina

Eileen Davidson: 5 months absence. I still have your last 2 eps on DVR : 10 26/29. haven’t even posted about you… other than when it’s heart pull… You and Marci Miller are still atop

Now Billy Flynn has taken leave

OUCH !

Right Patrick! I thought the new writing regime’s episodes were going to start yesterday. That’s what I had read in one of the soap rags. But as soon as Y&R started with the scenes from of week’s episodes, I knew we were still watching M. Y.’s work.

For Abby’s wedding

Celia
Celia

Happy to see “Ashley’s” beautiful face. I would think it’s to celebrate Abby’s engagement to the worst actor/character on earth? Would the Rosales family have a feast with Lola’s life in the balance?
I hope she kicks arse where Keri ( sp) is concerned and expose her for whom/what she really is!!!! Yeah, kick her to the curb.
I wish the same could happen to Arturo and Mia ( is she really pregnant or is she using it as THE trump card ( Ha!), as vile women are wont to do? She is not the femme fatale to be using her wiles. I guess her “ugly”, mediocre machinations only work on the Rosales brothers, who look nothing alike, nor do they sound like having been sprung from the same family!!
I wish ( fervently!!) Eileen would either stay or make frequent appearances–she lights up the show for me!!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia,
Knowing you hate Mia as much as I do, I was thinking that they need to get Dina out, from where she’s been, give her another fork that she can stab Mia with, saying “yup, she’s done, now get her the hell out of here!” I wonder how long Ray will buy her phony pregnancy?
Is your husband willing to be our consultant? I am just curious as how a bump on the head, and fall into the pool, caused Lola’s liver problem. Have you and hubby watched The Good Dr.? I’d like a professional opinion. I just love it, and Freddie Highmore.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Violet,
My husband said thst hypothermia can cause liver failure…..Lola was submerged in that pool for how long?
My question is? Why didn’t the pool have a cover? It is cold in Wisconsin. And why wasn’t the water frozen? Even if the pool is heated, who goes swimming in winter, unless it’s indoor? All pools normally get “winterized” and covered.
I remember when Sam had that mystery infection ( GH) after giving birth to Scout….my husband diagnosed her with Toxoplasmosis waaaay before the show did—
I have yet to watch an episode of “The Good Doctor”—I always tell myself to do so….but, most evenings are so busy…..I usually watch old shows or catch up on my soaps–I force my husband to watch with me–he’s really into DOOL, right now—gets a kick out of Eve… ❤️

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Celia
Thanks for the info. Gosh, I must watch all the medical shows, Grey’s Anatomy, Chicago Med., etc. The good Dr. is just so unusual, as is this young Dr.being autistic , wanting to help save people, but not being able to show emotion or compassion, is very interesting. Some of the stories I wonder, is that true, does or can that really happen? Wish I had a Dr. sitting next to me, that I could ask,” honey, is that right?” Lucky you!
Now that we know who Lola’s donor is, it should be interesting. So glad it wasn’t that brat Summer.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Violet,
I like Chicago Med–but, I don’t watch it that often. I do know the premise of “The Good Doctor”. I never really questioned if someone with autism would be able to practice medicine. I don’t know much about it; but, there are many people with Asperger’s who hold high-level positions. Their IQ is exceptionally high….
….I’m more into courtroom drama.
….which brings me to Christine’s not-so-dramatic antics a’ la Marcia Clark-esque.
I think the climax should be as such:….as we await the verdict with bated breath ( LOL)….the real JT bursts in to save the day!!
As far as Lola, I didn’t realize her donor was revealed on the show…..but, I did read that THE “match” will donate part of her/his liver for a non-monetary price. Sounds more like blackmail to me.
Oh, lest I forget—-I despise Kerry as much as I do Mia. Two peas in a pod!! They (and Tessa) just rub me the wrong way…..they have an agenda.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Hi Celia
I love your responses and comments.I so enjoyed Perry Mason, back before you were born, but I now watch about any of the crime shows like, NCIS, Law and Order,SVU, Chicago, PD, For The People,(best courtroom stuff)
I do read a lot of spoilers, so I know who the Y&R donor is,but missed it yesterday,so thought it was revealed. I don’t like to spoil things for anyone else, so I try not to spill the beans when I read things. I must say that most of them are true. I usually get mine on Utube, as crazy as they are. Have a good week-end. We are not enjoying all the rain here in Cal. but can’t complain.

Celia
Celia

What a pleasure you are, Violet.
We started off on the wrong foot–but, it didn’t last long.
I watch “Perry Mason”—-. Fios offers so many different networks with reruns galore. I love the old shows……I used to watch with my grandmother and my siblins…..she baby-sat a lot. LOL. She has a collection of movies from the 50’s to the present—-plus old TV shows.
I guess we like the same programs–I love crime drama. Perhaps I’ve chosen the wrong profession? I remember, as a little girl, I used to pretend I was Peggy Lipton from “The Mod Squad”. LOL. I think my grandmother must have every episode—-she looked so much like her in her youth—maybe, that’s why she has the collection……She also has every single rock music recordings of the 50’s through the 80’s, including Motown….From TIME-LIFE–one collection is titled,”Flower Power-The Love Generation” ( with bubble letters)….HaHa—I guess love has passed every following generation by? No more love?
I rarely have the time to watch during the day, but I do DVR so many shows–I have insomnia; so , on those loooog, white nights, I watch all my favorites. I usually catch up with my soaps, late at night.
Yes, I know who Lola’s donor is, as well……as yourself, I didn’t want to spoil it for anyone. But, I must have missed it when it was announced on the show? As I said, I accidentally read it when I was looking-up something else ( on Y&R).
You have a wonderful day, as well, Violet……getting kids ready for Mass.
Soon, my friend❤️

Ron

Hi Celia

Remember– it’s Wisconsin– a rare breed of state. Heated pools and 50 degrees below zero… time for a swim. You’d think the Abbotts would have an indoor pool.

Celia
Celia

Exactly—-yet, Ron, even if the pool is heated—-no amount of gold would make me dive into it in freezing weather!!
Most indoor pools have retractable ceilings and walls–seasonal–
So, yeah…the Abbotts don’t have such an enclosure for their pool?
I am enjoying the courtroom shenanigans, Ron—-Michael, the suave advocate; Christine the lawyer without a clue and Brittany Hodges ( Lauren Woodland practices law in real life) who knows what she’s doing; yet, not a “showy peony” .
Aside: I have never trusted Kerry . I am beginning to believe she and Phyllis are trying to oust the Abbotts for a complete takeover. Seize and control?
Mia, as I said is on the prowl. She bought the pregnant woman’s urine……how will she carry through a fake pregnancy? She does share a bed with her husband, Rey (the criminal who is aiding and abetting her–some honest lawman). Even if she fakes it ( hard to do–being pregnant is not an easy feat) she will have to manufacture a baby? Steal one? Buy one ? Tigers, bears and lions, Oh My!! LOL.
With all the evidence against JT ( the therapist should testify), video of him assaulting Victoria etc.; this should be an open and shut case. Plus, there’s no body!! Christine is arguing spousal abuse? In real life, this case would have been dismissed.
Had it not been for Phyllis, this stupid “drama” would not be happening. The charade and botched display of righteous indignation ” performed” by Christine is laughable. Dumb writing!!
Sorry for the tirade. Th-th-that’s all, my friend.❤️

Ron
Ron

Thanks for the morning laugh! Kerry and Phyllis– I could care less. The only story I’m invested in is Dina, and it’s been dropped like a hot potato.
In the 80s Y and R introduced us to Nina Webster and the start of the black market baby storyline; it would be a good opportunity to revisit that plotline and have current information present for viewers. I hope the new head writers have Lola shove Mia into a pool and close the cover. And, as I sung repeatedly: I’ve had high schoolers write better content in my creative writing classes and better nonfictional in Journalism. Cannot seem to find bios on the current writers of Y and R… very annoying.

Another polar plunge here in Illinois… and this is March. Hope it’s not heading your way, my friend.

Take care.

Celia
Celia

We are smack in the midst of that “polar plunge”, Ron……I had half day today…..it was brutal early this morning!!
I bundled and wrapped my daughter up so heavily, she could barely move. My husband thinks I’m crazy—-did I tell you that already? Oops!!

I wish Nina would return and bring some of those long, lost, meaningful storylines with her!! I seem to hazily remember that the liver-transplant storyline is a ‘rerun’. One of Nina’s sons, either Lance or Ronan, needed a liver transplant—-not very original to use the same theme/plot. Why not switch-it-up and make it a kidney? The heart? Used already?

Think about it, Ron—-every story is a farce; especially Mia’s. There is no redeeming quality about this character. She’s just not likable to me.
I have heard “Kerry” is leaving!! HALLELUJAH, JESUS!!

I get it Ron—I am still a substitute in English (and Physics) class…As yourself, I find my seniors write a more concise narrative than these seasoned writers.
Furthermore, I am forever baffled by how pitiful the grammar, on our soaps, is. One would think the writers excel in the subject? When will these actors learn that “between”, and every other preposition, is followed by the objective case (any pronoun)? Every time I hear “Between you and I/or he/or she/or they”; my hair stands on end!!
Only we educators can appreciate the importance of correct grammar. It is embarrassing for our country, as a world power, to come in second to last where Academia is concerned. It’s no wonder!! And, yes, you have sung it, many-a-time!!
The problem is: grammar is not taught after sixth/seventh grade in Public Schools. Private and Prep Schools are, at least, trying to remedy that.
Sorry, I’m ranting again, but, boy….do I feel better!!
“Till we meet again”, my friend….Keep warm. ❤️

Shay
Shay

Amen to the grammar rant, CeeCeeGirl! You’re preaching to the choir!!!…May I suggest another reason the public schools are currently so abysmal in that department is that they are now so busy trying to teach “English As A Second Language” that “English As A First Language” has been totally parked by the wayside??? My blood boils whenever I read about those programs being expanded and my tax money used to “educate” illegals over the needs of our own country’s students. Just another instance where “America First” should be the policy of the day.

Ann

I think her visit has to do with the upcoming Neil Winters storyline and possibly Abby’s wedding (if Abby goes through with it)

Ashley Abbott was written into a corner. The acting saved the stories for me. I wish Graham was kept on canvas as a foil for the family. I did not care for the Jack’s-No-An-Abbott story either, but it is past and we can move on. What all other heck plays out on daytime drama, I think some sort of family reconciliation can come forth, though it would not and should not be easy. When Jack and Ashley work together, it is a dream team on screen IMHO. For now, they will duke it our until Dina’s condition worsens or they family is threatened wholly by an outside force, demanding union.

Ellen Pompeo Rips Into ‘The Bachelor’ Creator And Defends Kelly Ripa For Her Comments

Things just got juicy from daytime to primetime after Kelly Ripa let her thoughts be known about the current ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown and the ‘Bachelor’ franchise during her morning show with Ryan Seacrest this week,

During a moment on the syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, Seacrest informed Ripa that the new ‘Bachelorette’ would be appearing on Thursday’s episode to which Ripa said: “You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”  She also called the audience out for watching this “gross, gross, show.”

Following her sentiments, The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to his Twitter account as did host and EP, Chris Harrison.  Fleiss said, “Easy, Kelly Ripa.  The Bachelor franchise pays for your salary.”  While Harrison tweeted: “Look out @KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Next, none other than Grey’s Anatomy franchise star, Ellen Pompeo joined the fray.  She tweeted in defense of Ripa.  Pompeo wrote: “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage….

And in the end on Thursday’s installment of the entertainment talk show, Hannah Brown made her guest appearance and she weighed-in on the situation expressing that she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind. Ripa maintained her disgust for the series.

Brown went on to say to Ripa: “Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other.  Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”

So what do you think about what Ripa, Pompeo, Brown, Harrison and Fleiss had to share with each other on their Twitter war? Comment below.
