Why do we all love Eileen Davidson? Let us now count the ways! Eileen is currently airing as one of the newest cast members on the hit reality series, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, along with her “day” job at The Young and the Restless, and also her return stints at Days of our Lives!
This week on an all-new episode of RHOBH, which was heavily about the women on the show and their daughters, Eileen shared a very heartfelt blog post at BravoTV.com. Later in the piece, Eileen related her thoughts on working on Y&R with the cast and crew, and her on-screen daughter, Melissa Ordway (Abby), and then went on to open up about her niece Annamarie, who is the daughter of Eileen’s late sister Connie, who died from complications of breast cancer last March. Here is an excerpt below:
Eileen: “Love the peeps I work with. Melissa Ordway plays my daughter, and Sean Carrigan plays my co worker/oops-we-had-a-one-night-stand. Both funny, funny people and so talented. Love ‘em. And Patti Denney! My make up artist on Y and R. I have known Patti for…32 years! OMG! She’s great at makeup and a good friend. The crew is fabulous, too. Y and R feels like home to me. Gee, I wonder why. I pretty much started my career there.
And then there’s my niece, Annamarie. She is my sister Connie’s only child. My sister was a single mom, and and I helped raise her daughter. I have always had a very strong connection with Annamarie, and I love her dearly. She’s an amazing young woman with a huge heart, great sense of humor, and immense talent. Jesse and Annamarie are more like siblings than cousins, and they adore each other. Sadly, really devastatingly, Connie died from complications due to breast cancer last March. There’s so much to say, and yet I don’t know how to begin. I guess I’m just so grateful to have Annamarie in my life. She truly has become the daughter I never had.”
