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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
