  • Can’t believe that Eileen Davidson is coming back to Y&R for the soap’s 40th anniversary now that she’s got Days of our Lives to deal with. Don’t know which daytime soap would I want to see more of: The Young and the Restless or Days of our Lives. Either way, I considered them both.

    • Apparently it was just people applying for jobs. The promos looked so dumb.

  • Sony sent her to DAYS to try to save that show. She’ll eventually be back at Y&R full-time. That’s a huge bonus that Sony owns both shows so that she can do this. ED is a class act and is still a stunner.

  • So…Eileen will be leaving Days soon? Can’t be soon enough for me. Hopefully Brady will return to his right mind once Kristen is gone.

    • I agree 110% with you. I go off to do something when Kristen is on screen. Can’t stand her voice, let alone the part she plays.

    • I’m not 100% sure if she’s leaving DAYS but maybe it’s up to her or the series to make up their decision depending on her DAYS’ contract.

  • I wish Eileen Davidson would leave Days permanently. They’ve completely ruined Brady’s character with this awful “affair” with Kristen. On the other hand it makes it quick and easy to watch the show because I FF thru all of their scenes.

  • I haven’t watched any Daytime Soap Operas in at least 20 years; my question is, why are theses Actors/Actresses still hot?

    I mean, even the guys look the same; I would not be able to name the people and/or characters, but I can usually tell if they were in a soap opera because they look the same.

    I’m assuming Ms. Davidson has some kids (too lazy to check Wiki), but she seems the same to me (surgery? baby cutlets?, sorcery?!!!).
