Oh no! What is happening to daytime? Now, another of our colleagues has lost their gig! This time its Eileen Davidson (Ashley) of The Young and the Restless! The actress took to Twitter this morning to confirm the news that began circulating over the last few days, and also earlier today from Daytime Confidential, that she had been shown the front door at the number one soap.
Eileen tweeted, “Change is in the air, people! Last week I lost my childcare. This week I lost my job! It all works out because I don’t need a babysitter if I’m not working.#beingpositive”
In an updated tweet on May 12th, the actress stated, “It’s official. I’ve been let go at Y&R. Not really sure exactly why. But in the big picture, I guess it doesn’t really matter.”
However, there may be good news for her on the horizon! Soap Opera Digest is now reporting that Davidson may be being lured back to Days of our Lives to play either Kristen Blake or Susan Banks! The roles she made famous from 1993-1998!
If fans recall, Davidson was also let go at Y&R once before, back in 2006, and then given new life by Y&R’s sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, only to eventually land back in Genoa City. With Tucker sleeping with Harmony on recent air shows and all the other issues plaguing the character now, it looks as though this was all in the cards.
What do you think of Eileen’s firing? Will you miss her as Ashley? Would you be into Eileen back on DAYS as Susan or Kristen? Let us know!
