On yesterday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, Daytime Emmy winner Eileen Davidson returned to The Young and the Restless in her role of Ashley Abbott!

In story, Ashley returns to Genoa City telling brother Jack (Peter Bergman)and daughter Abby (Melissa Ordway) that she has a new mystery perfume that will change the face of the business, and what she wants if Jack to name her co-CEO of Jabot once again!  Jack tells Ashley that if this product is a revolutionary as she says, he will bring her back in to the company with the position.

Meanwhile, will Ashley rekindle her flirtation with Stitch (Sean Carrigan)? Will the story ultimately pit mother vs. daughter for the affection of the doc? When Ashley and Abby sit down at the Genoa City Athletic club to interview prospective chemists for the job of helping her with the mystery perfume, Ashley is impressed by the resume of one, “Ben Russell”, only to be in for the shock of seeing Stitch before her saying he is there to interview for the job!

What were your first impressions of Davidson’s return to Y&R as Ashley?  What do you think the writers ultimately have in store for Ashley now that Davidson signed a two-year deal on the CBS soap opera?  Comment below!

Eileen was a breath of fresh air. So great to have her back.

I don’t know what this perfume mystery is, but I’m looking forward to finding out.

Just wish those around Eileen (Billy and Abby) were better actors.

Totally agree.

But it could be worse: They could be pairing her with Redaric Williams, the worst soap actor since David A. Gregory from “One Life to Live.”

Red hasn’t been on recently. I was hoping he was gone.

When will Jack learn that Ashley is living a double life…home in Genoa City she is conniving Ashley Abbot but in Salem she is the super evil conniving Kristen Dimera…the perfume should be called ‘The Two-Face Women’ and i just bet Stephano Dimera is behind it and is plotting with Ashley/Kristen to takeover Jabot…lol

I love seeing Eileen on 2 shows right now! Such an amazing actress….I certainly hope Y&R will give her some really juicy storylines and not just have her play filler …she is captivating! I hope they give her a real love story this time around!

I know, she is so talented. I can’t stand the RHOanything, but I think I’m going to watch her and Lisa Rinna on RHOBH just out of curiosity. Eileen Davidson seems like she’d be a hoot.

Welcome back Ashley Abbott to where you belong.

It seems like playing Kristen on Days has made ED put a bit more life into Ashley. The scenes I have seen yesterday and today definitely portray Ashley in a more playful light. I would hate to see mother and daughter competing for the same man—maybe Avery’s ex that is coming to town will be pegged for Ashley– and Abby and Vicky can compete for Ben. As for this perfume, might it be some kind of love potion???

Also had this thought— if the perfume acts like Viagra, maybe Lauren could wear it to get Micheal’s libido going again— but then again a perfume that could do might not be such a wise invention. I’m mean unless you can target the effects to hit the guy you want to arouse it could be a bit tricky when going out in public, if you get my drift. But other than a love potion, or something to arouse someone sexually, what else could a perfume do that could be so earth shattering? Help you lose weight? I would buy that if that was true. LOL

The perfume will be called BEN #5!

With all the time the writers had to craft a splashy comeback for super smart and business savvy Ashley, I can’t believe her first day back had her announcing her mystery perfume, then telling Abby 3.0 to get started on an ad campaign for it despite the fact she couldn’t divulge any details about it, and topping it off by interviewing perfume chemists in the middle of the GCAC dining room. Yep, that all sounds super smart and business savvy to me.

*insert eye roll here*

Oh, Eileen — you should’ve stayed at DAYS.

That is pretty silly, and yes, she has been rocking it as Kristen on DOOL. But I am glad Ashley is back. I would LOVE to see them focus on the business/career aspects of the characters like they used to. Now it seems that practically every character is in the food service industry. Either working at the Underground, Crimson Lights, GCAC, (I guess Billy sold his restaurant?)…I find that boring compared to the corporate intrigue of high fashion and cosmetics.

Ashley’s perfume is a scent with Viagra and Lauren will be the first to try it out. Just my thoughts.

Glad that Jack is finally getting his family back where they belong.

Her new secret scent is how to smell like a real house of Beverly Hills, their will be a smell for Lisa v. Or how to smell like skank Brandi or like sisters Kyle or Kim . The last smell is the smell of soap diva in honor of herself and lisa rina.

Just the first two days she was back were fantastic.

I really hope the writers can deliver Ashley a great love and business story. The character is due!

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
