With roles on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives, Eileen Davidson continues to be one in-demand daytime drama actress.

Now, Davidson has decided its time for her to drop her moonlighting gig and leave Bravo’s hit reality show franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

Davidson has been with the current cast for three seasons and debuted on the series alongside another former daytime, Lisa Rinna (Ex-Billie, DAYS).

Eileen related her decision by stating via an Instagram post:  “After a lot of thought, because of my crazy scheds at YR and Dool, I’ve decided it’s best for me and my fam to step away from being a housewife for now. 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!!!!”

So, what do you think of Eileen’s decision to step away from RHOBH? Comment below!

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.

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.

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.… Read more »

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 Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.

DAYS Mary Beth Evans & Stephen Nichols with Guest Ron Carlivati Talk Stayla’s Greatest Hits & Approach To Scripts During COVID-19

This week is a pivotal one for Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) on Days of our Lives.  Will they be reunited once again?

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

In her tweet, Evans announced: “Since we’re evidently leading up to something big on #Days … Stephen Nichols and I thought we’d get together & watch some of our reunions from the past. And, we were lucky enough to have a very special guest join us for a chat! #patchandkaylaforever”

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

Watch Mary Beth, Stephen and Ron in part one and part two and part three of their discussion below.

You can find that and more on Mary Beth’s PlankBlog You Tube channel as well.
