When you’re hot, you’re hot! And right now there is no one hotter than Daytime Emmy winner Eileen Davidson of Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless!  The soap actress has reportedly just signed a whopping record-breaking figure to sign on to Bravo’s reality franchise series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

According to Radar Online, Davidson just kinked a deal worth $750,000 making her the highest paid of any cast member of the ‘Housewives’ franchise.  Bravo knows that Eileen has a huge fan following from her legions of soap fans who will more likely follow her to Beverly Hills!

Other cast members are said to have been given pay raises for the new season: Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards and Yolanda Foster earning $500,000, with former DAYS star Lisa Rinna, who has signed on for the new season as well getting $450,000! 

So what do you think of Eileen being the highest paid “Housewife” in history?  Will you be tuning in to see her on the reality series?  Comment below!

Personally I think it’s totally ridiculous that these shows still expect us to believe they are real! If any two actress needed to join to amp up the drama why not two soap stars…they know all about drama and how to extraggate the truth. I won’t watch but I will peek in just see them on their first show.I can’t with the shows but I will support daytimes actors/actress if possible. I just don’t want waste my time with a bunch of women screaming over nothing, I also learned a lesson from watching Wife Swap which I don’t think I… Read more »

I agree with you..It is very uncool to see this happen..One of the reason daytime serial dramas have lost many of fans, it is because of these reality garbage shows, daytime or primetime.

It surprises me, that she will go that trashy route..Two thumbs down!!!

She has been doing the same job for 30 years – maybe she just needs a challenge creatively.

I’m not a fan of the franchise, but this may bring new viewers to soaps.

Is the world round? Does the earth revolve around the sun? Because, and I warn all readers to sit down, I actually agree with Su00.
Why on earth would Eileen agree to do this? She earns plenty of money as a highly regarded as an actress in daytime drama, and she is already famous.
She has nothing of value to gain and everything of value to loose.

I can’t say that I disagree. I think the “Real” Housewives franchise is beyond disgusting and ridiculous. It pains me to watch any of the series. Eileen is a woman of class and style. She is dumbing herself down by signing on to this series.

No way emmy win… notwithstanding in this day and age circulation 4 soaps prevail she disses … OK.. till the show debuts…. DAYS and daytime….

Radar is notoriously wrong in their housewives story. They once tweeted about a RHOBH reunion before it even had been filmed. There is no way in hell Bravo is paying Eileen that much money for her first season when she is unproven. RHOBH doesn’t have the ratings to reflect that and she wouldn’t be paid more than their biggest stars.

Eileen is probably making anywhere from 100,000-200,000 for her first year.

IF this is true, I think ED is doing herself & DAYS a disservice. Most of the women who make up a HOUSEWIVES cast are wannabee celebrities with a limited amount of performing talent. Why would someone near the top of the profession in her acting sphere do this? She not only has 2 soaps on different networks willing to have her on their shows simultaneously (unprecedented!). But, these are 2 roles on the 4 remaining soaps left on daytime tv – rarities that former castmembers of defunct soaps would love to have. Now, ED has just lumped herself in… Read more »

Thank you JimH.

“… as poor as i am i still wouldnt lower myself to do a reality show”

I love sharing… how… our generation… you’re with me on this

that growing up in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s

are what made us

prior to computers, (internet)… cell phones… MP3 players…

they belong

I’m intriged.. because of how much I care about what they brung to daytime… so i’ll guard their person…

only so much

I love these two

Well if she is going to do it, she might as well make a boatload of money for it. However I am not sure if her management people are geniuses for getting her the gig at that price, or idiots for peddling her off to that franchise– whether this will help her or harm her career in long term is yet to be seen, but once you put your toe into the reality show universe there is no going back. Once upon a time soap actor was the lowest rung of the Hollywood ladder, not it is reality star, so… Read more »

Frankly, I’m shocked. I would expect somebody like Melody Thomas Scott to do a show like this because Melody is certainly flamboyant in real life and every inch the soap queen. Eileen on the other hand seems very reserved and down to earth. I love her performances as Kristen but I’m not convinced she will be worth her fee since her real life personality is laid back like Ashley, and, frankly, I find her boring as Ashley.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

which is why, i’m perplexed… per your last line

“and frankly, I find her boring as Ashley”

that she concluded that she’s better as Ashley than Kristen

a two year contract… with all the trimmings… must star something…

I’m sorry her ideology and craftsmanship.. left out Salem

After management, agent fees not to mention all kinds of taxes, she will be lucky to see half that salary. I am in shock that someone as talented and respected as she is would do one of these so called reality shows! I for one do not have the stomach for these shows because they seem to reward the worse in human nature.

Patrick
Guest

your last sentence is truth

prior to it’s start

I will prevail and give resonance… did she cull from her stay…. both Y&R and DAYS that she figured… a realtity with desire of two outlets… gave her permanence to strike ?

I say “Yeah” for Eileen. I really hated these shows but I’ll be watching for her and Lisa Rinna. These shows put Bravo on the map, but have really run their course. I love the fact that soap stars are being featured in the hope that they will draw interest for a new fanbase (hence higher ratings for DOOL &YR in particular). Just hope these two lovely soap divas maintain their dignity in the process. I’ll be watching a show I never would have considered and hope for some fun BTS insight. Best of luck to Eileen and Lisa.

talk about wasting money, why pay her so much? Lisa Vanderpump is the fave, and to have Eileen come in as top dog to the franchise is a total waste, i think she’s an good actress, but i don’t see Eillen being all that interesting as herself. Bravo just proved how desparate they really are.

O-M-G. What has Eileen gotten herself into?!?!? I have a feeling that Eileen has NO IDEA as to what she’s getting herself into. As far as I’m concerned, that idiotic RHOBH is part-trainwreck, part-Z-O-O and (most of all) part-W-A-R-Z-O-N-E. Bottom Line Here: This has T-O-T-A-L D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R written all over it!!!!! Shudder.

I’ve watched a couple eppis (literally probably 2) each of the NY and NJ versions and they were SO ridiculous it was depressing. Honestly, I’m not a fan of this franchise (or most reality tv, Pawn Stars is about as “reality” as I go and that’s more focused on the business).

That said, if she’s really on, I WILL check it out and watch. I mean, I watched the “Dirty Soap” show, this won’t be all that different except only two people will be from soaps.

Katie

I should have added, I really hope it doesn’t turn out she’s like Farah Fath. That was the one casualty for me on “Dirty Soap”.

harry

Farah came off looking meaner than a junk yard dog in that reality series.
She made Leroy Brown look like a sissy by comparison. I would not cut in front of her on the buffet line
And her boyfriend came off as being whipped by a cat. (if you catch my drift–trying to keep it clean ).

jaybird369

Harry…I remember Dirty Soap. The only 2 on that show that I DID NOT LIKE AT ALL were Farah and ESPECIALLY Fary (Nadia’s mom). Everyone else…I liked. And…by the way, Brandon Beemer was my TOTAL FAVORITE!!!!! Brandon Beemer…What a TOTAL CUTIE-PIE!!!!! Y-U-M!!!!!!

Take care, Harry.

A-C-E-S!!!!!!

Susan
Guest
Susan

Katie, I don’t think Eileen will come off as Farah. A couple of years ago I saw Eileen in a show, I think it was the Dog Whisperer. It showed her house and whole family, including a niece that lived with her, while this man taught them how to make their dog follow commands and behave. She was very down to earth and seemed like a genuinely nice person. If she does come off as Farah then we will know she is acting and how fake these reality shows really are.

That statement makes no sense as Eileen is a highly coveted actress and is the object of a constant tug of war between Days and Y&R and now it seems this idiotic housewife show wants her too.
This ageless and talented beauty is seemingly wanted by everyone except for Brady.

This franchise needs to get REAL by giving viewers ‘The real housewives of Section 8’! It’d be much cheaper to produce! They could pay the entire cast a quarter of what they are paying Davidson all put together! I’m sure it would be a huge hit too!

I have to wonder how she will fit in with the ‘other’ RHBH cast…It just seems like an odd mix of people..but maybe for once it will make the show less Jerry Springer, and more entertaining.. I might have to watch it to see how they all connect with each other..

Off this topic but WHAT A WASTE her first week back on Days has been! Having her locked in a room with Dr. Dan does NOTHING to move story, nor is it the least bit interesting. She is only there for a short time, get Kristen with someone that MATTERS like Brady, or Theresa, or Marlena, or Eric, or Nicole for crying out loud! Daniel is NOTHING in Kristin’s orbit. Zzzzz!

Much as I detest reality shows I cannot blame her in a way. She is a popular actress and needs to ride the wave of popularity while she can. She is not a young starlet anymore and probably realizes that even between Days & Y&R she only has so many years left to be a front burner actor. 25-30 years ago Dee Evans was probably always in a front burner story line. Now, she is lucky to get 2 days a week and sometimes weeks/ months between those. Soaps, like the rest of the film industry, are not kind to… Read more »

That was a little off topic. But, more to the point? Eileen is still gorgeous and her acting on Days is top-notch. She is one of the most versatile actresses in the soap world. An actress of this caliber should not participate in anything so trashy….it is demeaning and degrading…not expected from a grande-dame such as she.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
