But ya never know! I might be popping in to see what the ladies are up to from time to time! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!!”

The Real Housewives ruined her. for me..
She use to be a good character but after the The Real Housewives thing I always saw her as a slutty druggy alcoholic person like her Real Housewives peers.. Super bad image..
She ruined Ashely every since she did the housewives..

Thank goodness I never watched “Housewives”, or any stupid ” unreality” shows. They are staged, so, where is the reality!?!?
My image of Eileen is still intact, su. Love her….soooo beautiful.
Awaiting Kristen with baited breath.

I agree with Celia that a lot of that was staged. That might be why she left that show.

su0000, I didn’t watch RHOBH often; however, I agree that the show was certainly beneath her. Unfortunately, money talks, I suppose. Eileen is way too classy to have been a part of such a (horrific) franchise. The housewives are mostly low-life trash, IMO, and as I said below, money doesn’t buy class! I think Eileen is just beyond classy and beautiful. Thank goodness work beckoned and she came to her senses!

I’m hoping Eileen had to step away from RHOBH more so for DAYS than Y&R! Y&R has Ashley, but I’d be so happy with DAYS’ Kristen, Susan, Sister Mary Moira and Thomas for a year!!!!

Hectic = multiple characters for several months. I’m praying…as much as Sister Mary Moira would have me do so!

I agree. Eileen’s best and most consistently exciting work has always been on DAYS.

True and the only time I truly tune-in to DAYS is when Eileen returns and does an arc. Love her.

As a prominent daytime actress I was surprised ED took on TRHBH in the first place.

It was rumoured, she is the all time highest paid, “housewife”.

Heck… @750,000 a season times 3 = 2.2 million after taxes @50% = a payout of $1,000,000 bucks to cache.

Nice work if you can get it, huh?

AND

I love her to this day.

I, am so hoping its because @DAYS of OUR Lives wants her

Hello Eve and Kristen.

July 19th. 12 days.

Good for her. That “show” was so beneath her acting talents and qualities as a human being.

I for one will miss her, she brought an air of class to the show that was
missing after Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof left the show. I guess
as long as they don’t replace her with any witches or former Puerto Rican
beauty contest winners the show should be all right, but none the less, I
will miss her.

I hope this means she’ll have a lot more time on Days.

I am so GLAD! I love Eileen… she is just too much of a class act to be involved with that hot mess! I was stunned when she agreed to go on in the first place, she’s better than that. She is a first rate actress, it’s beneath her…

Lisa Rinna on the other hand would do anything to stay relevant, but she was never a talented actress to begin with.

Can’t wait to see how Ron C brings Eileen back into Salem!

I posted a similar comment below. Have you ever looked up (trolled) Lisa Rinna’s Instagram account? Yikes. The comments are brutal. I would be absolutely mortified if I were her and would delete my account.

I can surely understand since she is so busy with Y&R and DOOL…Love her on both soaps.

She irritated many Bravo fans, especially when she was in cahoots with Rinna. I won’t miss her.

Nooo…not gonna lie , if schedule overload was a problem i really wld ve preferred she drop y n r !
Real housewives and days of our lives are exciting, y n r is major underwhemling. On days as kristen , eileen is showcased as a major vixen smart and sexy. On housewives the confrontations are legendary when eileen defends lisa rinna s bad choices to lvp and kim.
Unfortunately y n r always promises eileen a frontburner story but they never deliver. The ravi relationship was a dud and the dinna story looked promising but has not fallen flat. Eileen needs to go where shes adored. She shld ve asked for a y n r hiatus, ash s story is not important, unfortunately we have the silly cane and lily story the only saga thats playing out.
I hope eileen at least appears in cameos because seeing her in real life for a fan is special. Shes one of the few down to earth housewives along with kyle on the show.

Miss Davidson made a decision that kept her current and financially rewarding. Good for her to make the most of an opportunity. It is wonderful to see daytime’s best get featured outside the afternoon. Am glad Miss Davidson chose Y&R and DOOL over RHOBH when making her choice though. I have enjoyed watching her as her many characters for many years. I do hope Ashley Abbot remains on canvas with her work on DOOL.

I think this is a smart move on Eileen’s part. She is way too classy to surround herself with such low-life trash! Hey, money doesn’t buy class..

Good for her for leaving! Never made sense that she joined a show like that.
And love her hair in the pic here!

It’s quite individual, however, my perception of a talented actress dropped considerably. The hope was she was not having a financial crisis which we all can understand.

For me those reality type programs when everyone takes a trip and yells at each other should be banned for anyone under eighteen. What terrible examples of how to handle unkind comments and so forth. I watched for a bit years ago, but it struck how harmful they could be to young teenager girls if they felt behavior like that displayed was acceptable.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

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.
