Fantastic news Young and the Restless fans! Reports abound, and a confirmation this afternoon from CBS Daytime Sr. VP Angelica McDaniel via her Twitter account has Y&R beloved favorite, Eileen Davidson back at the CBS soap taping scenes for the number one daytime drama’s upcoming 40th Anniversary which airs this coming March!
It has also been confirmed that Days of our Lives did indeed “loan” Eileen to The Young and the Restless so Ashley Abbott could visit her brother Jack (Peter Bergman) in upcoming important scenes, but that the talented actress will be back in Salem as Kristen DiMera.
In addition, McDaniel let it be known in the recent issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now that Y&R losing Davidson was a blow stating, “We lost Eileen Davidson- which is such a travesty and a disappointment for The Young and the Restless, and we hope to have her back- Jack’s family was getting smaller!” Looks like McDaniel and the Sony team were able to bring Eileen back just in time for an important Genoa City milestone!
So soapers what do you think of Eileen coming back to tape some scenes as Ashley Abbott? Let us know!
