In the no holds barred interview, Eileen talks about everything from her time at Days of our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful to what’s going to happen during her latest stint on The Young and the Restless. She gave a little preview of who she’ll be sharing scenes with and we’re headed toward an Abbott family reunion, Traci included. Here is an excerpt of that question, but be sure to check out the full interview. TVGuide.ca: Welcome back to Y&R, gorgeous! To say fans and critics are thrilled beyond belief that you have returned to reclaim what is rightfully yours in Genoa City is a gross understatement! It righted a big wrong… Eileen Davidson: Oh, thank you, Nelson! A few weeks ago, I taped three episodes all in one day opposite Peter Bergman [Jack], Beth Maitland [Traci], and Billy Miller [Billy]. It was awesome. We taped 11 scenes in two hours! Coming back was like putting on an old pair of shoes. 18 Responses Jillian Bowe September 17, 2008 Sounds like the entire Abbott gang was back minus the pop John… Y&R should rectify that nonsense. It was a great interview however, am I the only one not looking forward to Ash’s return? Nothing against Eileen but I know where this will be going, Ash will slink up next to Victor and become a happy pairing. BLECK! I’d rather see Ash with Paul. Log in to Reply season1217 September 17, 2008 Paul’s too cornbread! I would like to see Ashley w/ a younger man, something similar to her thing w/ Rick on B&B but a billion times better. It would be interesting to show the struggles of a younger man, older woman coupling. I could probably get behind a Cane/Ashley pairing. If Billy Miller wasn’t playing her brother I think they would be hot. But I, too, am weary of Ashley’s return because of her Victor worship. Log in to Reply timepass September 17, 2008 Hopefully, she won’t be as boring as usual, we already have a lot of females taking that spot on Y&R! Lily, Collen…! They even make Phyllis boring, which I thought could never be possible, silly me! When are the great storyline happening again? Still waiting! Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe September 17, 2008 Y&R can jump on the bandwaggon of other soaps and have Ash with Billy since technically speaking they aren’t brother and sister…. Log in to Reply season1217 September 17, 2008 OMG! Jillian, I forgot John is not biologically Ashley’s father. But if I’m against Stax and Jammy, who were blood relatives, then I have to stick to my guns. LOL! Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe September 17, 2008 Not good with the combined couple names so who are Stax and Jammy? Log in to Reply season1217 September 17, 2008 Sorry. Stax is Stephanie and Max on DAYS. Max is Stephanie’s mother’s adoptive brother making him her uncle. Jammy is Jonathan and Tammy on GL. Jonathan and Tammy’s mothers are half sisters. Log in to Reply hunterforrester September 17, 2008 Actually we talked about Ash and Cane, but I’d prefer to see Ash and Jeffrey Bardwell. That’d get Gloria’s goat! Log in to Reply hrfmom September 17, 2008 I do not mind Lily with Cane when Lily has some Dru coming through. I hope they do not do the Ashley/Victor storyline AGAIN. Phyllis has definetely been neutered; maybe the quad between Nick/Sharon/Jack/Phyllis will bring the real Phyllis out again. I just hope Ashley gets used on Y&R because she was totally wasted on B&B. If Y&R does not use her, I would love to see her back on Days!!!! How great would that be?!?!?! Log in to Reply season1217 September 17, 2008 “… but I’d prefer to see Ash and Jeffrey Bardwell.

Log in to Reply hunterforrester September 17, 2008 Didn’t Ash date or flirt with William Bardwell? Log in to Reply AlistairCrane September 17, 2008 I wanted Eileen back on Days so badly. I’m very upset, especially since she said she would’ve loved to return. Log in to Reply season1217 September 18, 2008 I’m glad Eileen mentioned the debacle that was Ashley stealing Victor’s sperm and getting herself impregnated with it. There were so many other ways for her to get pregnant by him but for the writers to have her do that made the character look cheap. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe September 18, 2008 Thanks for the combo clarification Seasons. I knew the backstory on all of them already just didn’t know their nicknames. Max and Stef are a go since they aren’t blood. Now Jon and Tammy… That’s just damn nasty NASTY I tell ya! I’d sooo love Ash and Jeff since Glo seems to be attracting her ex River/Lowell… For all the things Glo did to the Abbotts and especially with Lil’ frozen sperm Abby, she needs to get her punishment.

Since the beginning when Ash and Vic got together, I loved them together. She brings out a different side to Victor that no other women was able to achieve. Even Nikki. I do like Nikki and Victor, but Ashley was always my favorite with Victor. If things don’t work out with them, then I can see Ashley hooking up with Jeffrey just to piss Gloworm off! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 September 18, 2008 Oh please no Jeffrey and Ashley pairing. I don’t want her involved with Gloria like that. Even through we would see some great scenes there. No sorry, a absolutely no go. And besides … I couldn’t see them together. LOL I want to see Victor and Ashley too. At least for awhile. That story, the feelings they have for each other never really played out … so I think they should definitely go there now. And Nikki … put her with Paul for awhile. Would be great too. For Paul and Ashley … please no reunion here. This couple was boring to hell. But first I’m so happy that Eileen is finally back!
