Eileen Davidson! What will we do without you? I wish you nothing but peace & happiness. It shouldn’t be hard to obtain with the loving husband & family you have. Maybe it will free you up at some point to come back on RHBH? One can dream…much love to you for all you’ve given of yourself throughout the years in giving Ashley life. No one can take your place onscreen or in our hearts!

I never liked Ashley. She was a condescending bitch lol really she has always irritated me.
I didn’t FF her nor do I hate her she was just someone I would slam the door on or throw her out the window LOL !

Many love her, it is true they do, and they will miss her.
So, to those- sorry you’re losing her.

He should have locked the door and shredded that contract !

I hope Ashley never gets one cent I am so mean on her but I really don’t like her so it’s
ok to be nasty mean on her.. LOL

Bingo. You’ve stated exactly how I’ve always felt about the character of Ashley. Never wished she’d be written out or the actress to leave but, not saddened the character is exiting, again….for now.

I’m going to be very up popular for this post. I wish she would return to the role of Kristen DiMera on Days. Stacy Haiduk is good; but, I feel Eileen adds a special touch of “aristocratic arrogance” that I loved in the character.

Eileen Davidson is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses in Daytime Television, IMO. I also loved her as Kristen Dimera on DAYS. I will miss her.

They FINALLY give Eileen some meat to chew on and she is gone! I want to see Ashley’s reaction to Dina’s gratitude towards her and her lifetime security blanket. Also, when Dina dies, Eileen has to return!

Daytime losing Eileen Davidson is a downright shame. As this past year’s contest for the Daytime Emmys shows, Eileen is one of the best — if not THE best — actors the genre has left; I don’t know any other performer who could take Y&R’s whispers of a character arc for Ashley and turn it into Emmy gold. And has been demonstrated, there are precisely zero actors who can come close to achieving the subtlety, texture, balance, and humanity that Eileen Davidson brings to her Days characters. I know some people interpreted Eileen’s departure as a retirement announcement, but I… Read more »

I am hoping that this will be temporary leave for Eileen Davidson and that she will return to Y&R in the future. I grew up watching her portrayal as Ashley Abbott and will miss her greatly. Best wishes to her.

Eileen Davidson has been mesmerizing the past few weeks. It’s the first time in ages I have been trying to watch every day — all for her and the Abbott drama. She will be greatly missed.

OH, she is so good in this clip–waxing sentiment while utilizing humor. What a talented beautiful woman. While I have been angry with Ashely as of late, I always loved Eileen Davidson. I hope she comes back to Y&R one day soon.

Me, too, Harry! Even though i haven’t watched Y&R in an absolute age, I still retain only the fondest of memories of Eileen Davidson and her Ashley. I still vividly recall when she burst onto the Genoa City scene as the newest Abbott family addition, and how she was a perfect sibling foil to the late, great Terry Lester’s fabulously roue’ big brother, Jack and his oft-sleazy antics! Oh, those were the days….

I’m happy she’s going! She just destroyed single handily her father’s legacy! She has been such a bitch this last year and acted like a spoiled little brat. She used to have a level head and was classy but the writers made her a villain! Come back when you find your heart!!
