If she stays in Genoa City im fine with it…Days should grab the talented Kelly Sullivan and have her take over the role of Kristen Dimera!!!

jimh: THATs a FANTASTIC IDEA! Dont watch Y&R but I’m going to miss Eileen and the character of Kristen. What villian will there even be on Days now?
I bet they wont recast that character though. Im going to miss Kelly Sullivan also. I liked Connie/Kate and she was great in that part!

You two should never quit your day jobs. Eileen has the role of Kristen on lock.

Beacon: Yes I kind of knew that, since shes the original and has been at it for years. WHY I SAID: I bet they wont recast that role.
I wish theyd do something finally with BO also, they could always bring her back later. Remember when soaps used to recast all the time?

I hope they find a place for her permanently I like her as Ashley Abbott , but I never want to see her as Kristen back in Salem again, I said that the last time she left Salem and I hope and pray that it is really true this time. As Kristen looked away in a harem is to good for her!

well, since Y&R is all about people/couple problems and companies (never any drama) she will be coming back for either of those 2 reasons..

BORING ..
(unless she returns as a vileness convincing killer) but, it will be return because of problems.

Hardly boring since the show has been number one now since the late 80’s. It’s just not your style of show.

Just like a lot of people don’t like or watch GH, or Days since they are plot driven and tell a lot of stunt stories.

I am a Y&R fan for decades, and telling it like it is..
Y&R has been terrible past years, it is lackluster and I watch it by pc in bed before I sleep, it actually puts me out haaa truth..
but being a long time fan I am addicted to it so continue to watch ..
there is always hope it will get better .. but as of now, it stinks .. lol

Yawn. She should have returned to Days for a few episodes. Y&R is awful, and they gave her nothing to do. Guess it’s fast easy money for her.

Yeah, it won’t be long term as long as JP is there. What good actor wants to work with someone who does nothing but destroy soaps and cares nothing about the history of the show?

Who didn’t call this? Y&R may have had her first and have a beloved character on there, but they’re clearly excited to have her back because of all the build up she’s gotten from DAYS. They see what an asset she is more than ever with the hype she’s gotten over at DAYS, and will piggyback off that success. I know they love her there, but come on? They were just waiting, licking their lips, until she left so they could get her back for some time. It’ll become permanent with a contract soon enough, just you wait. This is… Read more »

LOL. I so echo your sentiments…. all the rest be damned. OK.. you’re allowed to simmer beside yourself. you get on this site and a soap box awaits… especially the 2nd paragraph. you know… your gut instinct.. and comfort level is where you should be? need to be? I don’t know… it would seem to fans alike… of Y&R and DAYS… that she should and deserves job security…. writing is a whole nother pandoras box… and that actor is left holding the bag… as it were. till that out… and/or exit is your choice or without control.

I should add for Y&R.

I loved hearing Esthers letter from Katherine.

“you are my protector, my confidant, and my family”. that was tearful.

I so adore Amelia Heinle, as Victoria, watching her… I was struck… at her role… she seems like mother to Nikki… still under her dads hand… as his daddys lil girl… and mentor to Nick… and just downright endearing and loving… with Billy and the kids they share. she’s my favorite newman… it would be Nikki , if Nikki would stand up to men.

Ta Da! Carmine and Adam…. testosterone maxed out!

Eilleen was wonderful to return to DAYS and give it her professional best. She is a gifted and committed actress. It is clear that Eilleen feels at home at #YR. It remains to be seen what Shelly Altman, Jean Passanante along with Jill Farren Phelps will bring to #YR. Would have preferred Bradley Bell as EP. This was Sony-CBS biggest opportunity to rectify some poor selections post MAB. I would have felt better with Brad Bell and Ed Scott as EPs and Kay Alden, Patrick Mulcahey and perhaps another seasoned and par excellence #YR writer. Now time will only tell.… Read more »

Someone on this site once suggested Ashley could be Adam’s mysterious backer– I would love that– although can’t fathom how those two mended fences to work together– but if it were her that would be some twist.

Patrick
Guest

you know… that would be believable and quite the arch for Y&R to traverse… two actors who… along with romance – love – and familial…

can be evil – devious – reel machinations – muster their personal revelations… at, with, and for… all involved.

Love you, Eileen! As either Kristen or Ashley, you’re pure beauty, class and talent. I support Eileen’s taking a break for family. I just hope we get to see a little bit of this lovely actress on our favorite shows now and then.

No surprise here- but what a traitor. She had a good gig with Days but she obviously prefers Y & R.

I wish Eileen would come back to Y&R playing a devious spitfire like she did on Days. Since her powerful stint on Days, I want nothing less from her than when she played Kristen. Playing the straight and narrow role of Ashley won’t do it for me. I like her “bad to the bone” which she plays real well. Hope I am not disappointed.

I love Eileen as Ashley!!! I know she is great as Kristen and she has been carrying DOOL… but she is Ashley!!! We need Ashley to have a good story and not just be a decoration in the Abbott living room! I hope she is back for a long time!!!

The demise of Ms.Abbott, storyline is clearly the fault of the writers,and their feeble attempt to capture more of the demographics to maximize ratings profits…..there was great chemistry between her and Mrs.C’s son Tucker M..but they continued to focus the story on 2nd tier characters and it didn’t work.She had nothing to do,it might have been better to have Abby killed Tucker,and Ashley take the blame for it,thus giving us a courtroom drama, may have been fun to watch.We will never know……i am still mad that John Abbott,though deceased is still onset,as a ghost giving Jack sage advice…..they should have… Read more »

ED originated the role on YR, and I realize that a lot of people loved her at Days. YR fans are glad to have her back, but it’s only for three shows at this time. The timing of the release of this news was to get the YR fans all excited before they dropped the HORRIBLE news that two former GH writers would now HW YR. If Phelps truly cared about the show, and not herself, she’s try to get someone who knows the history of the show…not these two. Phelps is the type of “leader” that needs people under… Read more »

I absolutely love Eileen Davidson and will be sad to see her leave Days. The return of Kristen Blake Dimera is the reason I tuned back into Days. I wish her well, back at Y&R. Would love to see the beautiful and talented Kelly Sullivan come to Days!

Would love to see the beautiful and talented Kelly Sullivan come to Days!

I too, just can’t say enough about how Kelly Sullivan, effortlessly.. with style, grace, grit, panache, inner resolve… just stamped, two footed, her presence, and made daytime hers.

i’d love to see her as a nuDiMera.

SO, SO happy that Eileen is coming back, hopefully for an extended stay. Now, more than ever, Y&R needs a strong female lead to pick up the slack left by Stafford and Cooper. I’ve always loved Ashley on the show and am STOKED that she’s back where she belongs!!!

I have to share… in the latest issue of SOD…. “Eileen Davidson, why she really left DAYS.” fact… ie: her contract with DAYS… she had it stipulated… that she could have left after 3 months… and that it was in fact a 1 year contract. that in itself helps in answering why ED left. the common thread… “I just don’t know…” and “I don’t know”. I’m certainly not answering for one of MY favorite actors’. I just feel it helps to better understand… simply why… she left Salem. as intimated by past headlines and post speculation…. ie: after 30 years… Read more »

Love Ashley, class act and she always puts people in their place. I hope she crosses over to B&B and hooks up with Bill. It’s awesome when Y&R and B&B intertwine.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
