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… Read more »

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!

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
