Every performer at any award show should listen to these tips from The Young and the Restless and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Eileen Davidson, on how to deliver your acceptance speech. Davidson talked with BravoTV.com, relating her experience when winning the Daytime Emmy for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Kristen DiMera on Days of our Lives back in 2014.

In addition, the website’s Daily Dish segment exclusively revealed that one of Davidson’s soap opera mystery series novels is being turned into a movie!  That would be Dial Emmy for Murder.  Eileen expressed: “I wrote these books 10 years ago, one every year for a few years, and one of them has been optioned.  And I’m in the middle of writing a second draft for it, and hopefully we’re gonna be filming it this summer. So I’ll be starring in that, co-writing it, exec producing, and that should be fun.”

As to the story in her novel and now on to the film, Eileen said,  “They’re written around the soap opera industry, and the protagonist is basically my character. She loves mysteries, and so she gets involved in trying to solve these murders. So you find her always in trouble when she’s always trying to figure things out, and all these people keep dying in these very dramatic ways, so it’s gonna be fun.”

Watch Eileen’s acceptance speech tips after the jump! Then let us know if you think what she offered is good advice for a performer picking up a gold statuette?  And, what do you think of one of Eileen’s novel becoming a movie? Comment below!

OK– this–
I Used to like Eileen Davidson/Ashley, I did..
But now, her Ashely character , to me, I now see as slutty because of her Housewives thing.. That really ruined the persona, for me.
However she is a very good actress, for sure.. and her speech was good, also.

But, not gonna read the book lol..
Really, the Housewives gig turned me totally off:(..what a shame she went in that direction, my opinion..

aside from this insulting comment as your need for attention, i will reply regardless nothing about eileens appearances on rhobh translates or should be percieved as ‘slutty’…eileen actually imo comes off as very down to earth and actually one of the more normal stars on the show. she is genuine and sensitive and has had a bad go of it with family ordeals. all things considered she should be commended for being so strong and keeping her plate full. eileen is classy and more beautiful than ever. congrats to her for her continued relevance and success. y n r, days… Read more »

I think Eileen adds the only touch of class on the show. Kyle comes close with her Hilton pedigree but those others are just awful loud mouthed dames.

I still love Ashely and I respect Eileen Davidson, however, I understand what SUOO is saying here. That RHOBH gig is not doing her any favors. I know she doesn’t need the money or fame, so why does she do it? They need to find Ashely a decent romantic partner. I liked her with MEK as Dr Neville. When she is in the same room with Victor, I feel their chemistry. I know they are pushing for a romance between Ashely and Ravi but for me, they just don’t work. That actor who plays Ravi is probably in his late… Read more »

Totally agree, Addison.
Never understood Eileen’s reasons for joining that show!
Just YUK!
Ashley was great with Simon, etc., yes!
Ravi? That makes no sense to me…can’t even imagine
a romance there. At all. Ever.
A mentoring relationship, A friendship. Sure.

On the rare occasion that I watch RHOBH, it is only to watch for Eileen. She is the only “housewife” that exudes any class, IMO. The only “favor” this gig is doing her, is in her bank account. Watching, clearly she is not like the other “housewives,” and unfortunately, I think she “dumbed” herself down for a paycheck-a mighty good one from what I read. I can’t stand to watch Erika or Dorit. Those two make me cringe.

Hi, su,
I do not necessarily agree with the ‘slutty’ part; but, I do agree with your perception of the ‘Housewives’ show….trash!!
This is my opinion, also…..agree or disagree.
By the same token, I do not like the direction in which Eileen’s character, Ashley, is going. This is no fault of hers, but the writers’. The Ravi thing/ storyline is immature and drmeaning for a talent such as she.

I don’t think of her as slutty, either…that word doesn’t fit, but yes, those
shows are just trash, waaaay beneath everyone’s image of classy Eileen.
Always been so weird to me why she ever wanted to be part of it.

I like Eileen but she has never shown the softer side of Ashley I much preferred Brenda Epperson’s version

Every since she came back in 1999 she shows a cooler version I think it is because of her stint in Days as Jristen

I feel much the same way as Suoooo. In fact I said just about the very same things she did on a Y&R comment board. I felt that Eileen , being on that trashy show made me lose some respect for her. Those women, for the most part, are not only vulgar but exhibitionists. I understand they do not care what some viewers think if them, though I am sure they have fans that admire as well as envy their lives. I just did not think Eileen needed that kind of fan adulation and attention.

LIKE EILEEN…THINK SHE IS A GOOD ACTRESS THAT REALLY NEEDS AN INTERESTING STORY ON Y&R…..BUT…WILL NOT TUNE IN TO THE TRASH SHOW AT NIGHT….IT IS DEMEANING TO ALL THESE SO-CALLED LADIES.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
