This Week I Lost My Job!” Jillian Bowe May 9, 2012 CBS, Comings & Goings, News, Soap Opera, The Young and The Restless 61 Comments Bad news, soap fans. The Young and the Restless has indeed let Eileen Davidson go from the soap! Davidson confirmed Daytime Confidential's report via Twitter. The actress tweeted: So Y&R has the funds to cast everyone who appeared on All My Children in the 80's, and to stunt cast every ex-sitcom star Maria Arena Bell speaks to at a fundrasier, but they're getting rid of Ashley Abbott??

Or these dozen of people that no body cares about??? It’s so sad to see Eileen leave the show again. She does deserve so much better! I don’t wish her to go back to DAYS because it’s a big mess over there … Log in to Reply sodsince16 May 9, 2012 I have a couple of responses about Y&R which I have been watching since the 70’s with Lance and Leslie. 1. Eileen Davidson is a loss. However, realistically, they have not defined Ashley as an adult since her return from B&B. She never worked in the lab, she didn’t fight for Jabot with the same passion as Jack, her relationship with Jill, Abby and other members of her family were ill-defined, and there was no rationale for her relationship with Tucker. Thus, if a smart savvy character like Ashley is going to be wasted than I am just as happy to have her off the soap. 2. There’s been a lot of uproar about Sharon & Victor. However, I would point to the idea that Victor and Jack are supposed to be close in age and we didn’t cringe when Sharon married Jack. Also, Sharon was married to Victor so it makes sense that she would be attracted to a guy who wanted to save her. Her relationship with Victor is a clever way to try to steal Adam from Chelsea by playing into Adam’s “daddy” issues. Lastly, Sharon has always been a bit screwed up, she did check herself into an asylum, so it stands to reason that she would enter into a screwy relationship. Finally, let’s remember the recent history of Y&R. It moves so fast that if you don’t like Victor with Sharon, wait two weeks because he’ll move on to someone else….

I believe you. I have been under this impression for at least the past two years. Having watched my favorite soap As The World Turns enter a steady decline over the last decade before it accelerated toward cancellation, I have already seen many of the same maneuvers that P&G made (including firing/diminishing vets in favor of casts bloated by new actors from other soaps) being echoed and repeated by Sony (which is bleeding money continually)/Y&R productions. Although I was never a Days viewer, I knew something was coming at Y&R when I read about the carnage at Days several weeks ago. If Sony had any real inclination to save this show (perhaps they are making a bit more effort with B&B with its shorter 30 minutes time frame), they would’ve fired this so called show runner (running the show of the air, is more like it). Bell name or no Bell name, she should’ve been gone like two years ago. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott May 9, 2012 I remember an interview in SOD with Maria around the time of the Paris story where she said about Ashley something along the lines of “the best part of Ashley hadn’t been realized yet”. A statement like that always made me aware to expect to see or read about a dynamite story for Ashley. Never happened. LML axed Eileen and now MAB is doing the same. Sony needs to step in here. All there is to it. That show is being driven further and further into the ground and I don’t care what teen stories are planned for the summer but it WILL NOT come close to “Glow By Jabot” in the summer of 2000. I miss my friends in Genoa City. Log in to Reply giogio May 9, 2012 Fired???? She’s been there since 1982? I just started watching this last April, so my condolences to her and all the fans here at DC. BUT what is wrong with these people. As much as I love still seeing my AMC actors, they are not thrilling me if someone else has to go because of them. Im having the feeling this will be turning into AMC thinking the AMC fans will come over. I was a veteran AMC’er, but that is not right. Whats done is done. BELL LADY, I think you need to re-think your decisions. Log in to Reply CtFireWitch May 9, 2012 Well it’s official now. Y&R truly sucks.

Ashley’s main stories since Eileen’s 1999 return were disgusting (the sperm stealing) and horribly depressing (her cancer). They also ruined the development of Abby beyond belief, taking out any of her growing up and instead dumping her onto the canvas trying to be a 21 year old when she seems much closer to mid-30’s. Eileen’s first run as Ashley was full of high drama and glamour and romance, along with the big tragedies (like her mental breakdowns). None of that has been around for her since that time. The last time Ashley had a vital role on the canvas was in the early 90’s when she was married to Victor. Worst of all is that the Abbotts have been destroyed as a family – most of them just don’t work well together anymore and the days of the warm but complex bond, with Mamie waiting with a kind word and a nice tray of breakfast, are long gone. I don’t think she ever recovered from the story where Adam terrorized her into a miscarriage. They wanted people to be turned on by this story. When that didn’t happen, they just tried to drop the whole thing, and focus on stories for Adam that were supposed to be sexier or whatever. Adam’s crotch and belt buckle got more talk from fans than any story Ashley has had since that time. It’s a shame her last story on the show had to be with the corpse known as Tucker. The worst of this for me is not so much that Ashley is going – it’s that so many, many, many terrible characters are staying. Log in to Reply Scooter Smith May 9, 2012 I feel bad for Eileen, but as a Days fan, this is a PRIME time to snap her up and bring her back as Kristen or Susan or Both! I hope they do it, with EJ’s attempted redemption, his mother would be perfect to help him with that. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman May 9, 2012 This is really awful. Maria Bell can suck it! I feel bad for Eileen, but I hope this means she is now free to go to Days of Our Lives. With Matt Ashford, Christie Clark, Patrick Muldoon, and Sarah Brown leaving, Days needs some more legacy stars. I wish her the best! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 May 9, 2012 I still want her on Days, at least she will be still working or go to B&B, Ridge can hook up with Ashley, if they are not killing her off, lol. I feel bad for her, but I hope that Eileen falls back on her feet. Log in to Reply ER Writer May 9, 2012 End of show moves indeed… Log in to Reply stoney07 May 9, 2012 This is ridiculous!!! Tucker, Genevieve, Eden, Kyle, Ricky, Cane, Sophia, Anita, etc… As a matter of fact, I could see Gloria, Jeffrey, and even KEVIN going before Ashley. She’s basically a CORE character. No she hasn’t had a decent storyline in a while, but that’s what WRITERS are for. I don’t know why I’m so upset because I could take or leave Ashley, but geez…I’m usually so upbeat about this show, but I can’t help but wonder if they are deliberately trying to run Y&R into the ground. Every other soap has changed writers or at least A WRITER on the team when things weren’t working, but Y&R is keeping the same team of murderers behind the scenes. And while I’m sure this is a SONY thing and not a MAB one, it just amazes me how they can keep all these other USELESS characters on the show, but get rid of Ashley Abbott. There’s a ton of stuff they can do with her if they just for once tried to use their IMAGINATION. MAB I’ve been nice to you for far too freakin long. STOP trying to be the anti-LML….stop trying to “right” Bill Bell’s “wrongs” and write a freaking show!!! Let LML’s stuff go….Bill Bell’s WRONGS were still far better than your very few RIGHTS!!! So leave his stuff in the past as well. Focus on the main characters you have, and write a good story for them. NOt a good “episode”….but GOOD STORY. You have done very little of that, and because I love the characters and the show so Much, I’ve overlooked it. In fact, I’ve been pretty damn optimistic as if I didn’t see the decline in quality. BUTTTTT, my dear, either piss or get off the pot. If you’re not gonna write a good show, then give it up. Let someone else come in and do the job. And I’m pretty sure Kay Alden and Jack Smith could come back and do a better job. Some may say they were horrible writers for Y&R, but I DO know that the show at least looked and felt the same with them at the helm. Characters weren’t deliberately DESTROYED (Sharon Newman). And the stories at least made sense. Anyway, I’m done ranting. Goodbye Ashley Abbott. I would hope you’d go back to DAYS or B&B…preferrably B&B cuz I just can’t get into DAYS. But I’m scared they’d just throw you back in the Ridge/Brooke saga and I’d hate that. Maybe she could hook up with Dolla Bill…and pit her against Katie. HEather Tom vs. Eileen Davidson would be kinda cool. All three Y&R alumnis in one story. However, I know it don’t mean a thing if it’s not Hope/Liam/Steffy. So yeah…whatever. Anyway, Y&R tighten up. Sadly, I’m not the type to complain about hating a show on a website. I’ll just stop watching, and that’s not a good thing…so GET IT TOGETHER!!!!

Or Monica’s biological younger sister (remember Monica was raised an orphan) who reveals that Monica is really Aunt Charlene’s sister thus Lucy Coe’s aunt. Of course this would mean the return of Lynn Herring! Lucy would be forced to admit that as a teenager she became pregnant and gave up her son A.K.A. Damian Spinelli. Could you imagine the scenes with those two. Davidson’s character would then go after Kevin (off screen Lucy and Kevin remarried)who is again angry that Lucy kept this secret from him.

Log in to Reply tedew May 9, 2012 This is an unexpected turn of events. I was actually thinking that Ashley would either forgive Tucker (who may actually deserve that next chance) or turn into the super diva that Y&R desperately needs. Eileen Davidson hasn’t had much to do during the past few years except to mope and whine so it would have been great to see her given something to sink her admirable acting chompers into. So if this is all true then I guess it is just the next move onto the coming new title … The Very Young & Restless. Regarding Victor and Sharon … I’m still not calling it all disgusting and tend toward sodsince16’s comments in #6. The only thing is is that Victor and Jack are not quite contemporaries and Sharon was never married to two of his sons. So it may be questionable on some aspects but there is only 30 years difference and Sharon is an adult who can theoretically make up her own mind. Besides, nothing has happened yet and may never happen. Log in to Reply Carol2 May 9, 2012 Victor was a father figure to Sharon – that’s why I see it as disgusting. Or I would if I still gave a damn about Sharon, who was destroyed by Hogan Sheffer around the time she was screwing 3 men while stealing napkins from Burger Barn. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 May 9, 2012 Victor tells Sharon every now and then that he thinks of her as family!!!! He has been like a father to her. So yeah them heading down a romantic path is beyond disgusting! Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 May 9, 2012 I guess I don’t have to wonder why I don’t focus on Y&R anymore than is absolutely necessary. For me it’s now only about Jack and Nikki. Holding on by my fingernails with those two. I’m sad. I’m sick. I’m angry. MAB, if the show is shut down it will be on yours and your writing staffs heads. |( If there was ever a gauntlet of shame for those who have ruined the soap genre, I would be lined up with as many rotten eggs and tomatoes to throw at you and your team as possiblewhen you run by . (Frons, Phelps, Guza and Wolf would also be running that gauntlet for what was done to GH. |() Sigh… 0:) Log in to Reply mk1814 May 9, 2012 I started watching Y&R in the mid ’80s. One of the first scenes I can remember was Victor and Ashley were out for dinner and he presented her with a model yacht. Then he announced that he had bought her am actual yacht. I remember thinking “This is the coolest guy even and I want to grow up to be him!!”. I know there are a lot of Nicki and Victor fans out there, but for me, it will always be Victor and Ashley. Watching their love story, from Nicki lying about dying to Ashley’s abortion to her breakdown to Victor having to tell Ashley about Steven’s murder to finally getting married, I cheered and cried with them all the way. In the larger scale, I fell in love with the complex stories and the amazing characters that sprung from Bill Bell’s imagination. Dru, Cassandra, Steven, Phyllis, Hope, Michael, Nina, and even Cricket became people that I cared about. Over the years, my love has ebbed and flowed as the various head writers and TPTB have changed, but I always kept up to date on the story lines so that way I could always tune back in and renew my love for the show. About a year ago, due to unbelievable stories and watching the characters that I had grown up with make decisions that were completely made no sense, I stopped watching. Every time, I would think about getting back into the show, I would read about some new “plot” or stunt casting that MAB would have come up with and realized that I could better spend my time cleaning out my sock drawer. This latest stunt, combined with the Sharon / Victor pairing, has finally convinced me that Y&R MAB not only should be fired, but she should be banned from all of TV. This is not my Y&R. I have no desire to keep up with the stories or care about the characters. It is a sad sad day. Log in to Reply Dyllan May 9, 2012 Sorry, but I am not the least bit sad to see her go.

Every actor on the set who’ve been there for 20 plus years should be pissed that MAB could hired people from AMC & GH but can’t play the actors who been on this show for decades. Jess Walton get shity storylines, Melody Thomas Scott gets kicked off the show for 6 months. All these vets on this show have to jump hoops, but Maria can hired people from the ABC’s daytime lineup and give them a storyline. Once again this woman only has a job because of her last name. I’m sorry if I was Steve Kent at Sony, MAB would be fired tomorrow, and Eileen would be re-hired! I’m sure we all could list many name of these young kids who are on this show that should of been fired, but Eileen Davidson is one person who should of never been let go! I hope Maria (ugh) will bring her back in the next few months, but since Days/Y&R both being a Sony show how would that help or hurt Days? You think Sony has a clause where they wouldn’t want her on Days? I’m just asking… Log in to Reply pjc722 May 9, 2012 CBS and SONY need to pounce on Maria Bell and get her to STOP ruining this show!!! The ABBOTTS are disappearing again and THE NEWBIES are not making up for it. I can think of 4 characters to get rid of RIGHT now that would be enough to keep Eileen Davidson on the show: Daisy. Ricky. Eden. Genevieve. And if that’s not enough: Cane or Lily: Seriously, all he does is whisper his lines and Lily is just a prop. Why the show just doesn’t send them to AussieLand together and make true drama with an actress that can ACT like Eileen Davidson is beyond me. Daniel: As much as I like the character, he’s just tooooooooo overdone. He hasn’t improved or succeeded as a man on this show when you look that Kevin has his own business, a wife and a kid and Daniel is still being told what to do by his mother and has YET to find a LOVE connection since Lily. There were 6 people who added up would probably pay for Eileen Davidson and more. MARIA BELL you are an extreme MORON. I have to agree that with the Victor and Sharon pairing, Daisy and Ricky still around and the lopsided way stories are told on here, I will be done with this show by the end of summer. Daytime will be dead in a year, people! Log in to Reply RealityCheck 33 May 10, 2012 Just when you think this show can’t sink any lower (Victor & Sharon’s hook up), it does. MAB is a disaster. How will this silly bitch spin this decision? Honestly, Les Moonves needs to step in and clean this shit up. CBS and Sony have too many mutual business interests here and Y&R is a money maker. As I’ve stated before, if Sony wants out of the soap business, then sell the fucking show to CBS. The way it’s being run now, it’s going to be worthless if they kill the show anyway. It’s a mess.

I think what is fairly obvious by now is that, despite having made her career in soaps and marrying into one of its royal families, she has no respect for the genre or its fans.

How many of us actually care about the suddenly aging childhood population anyway? Regarding Victor and Sharon again … don’t forget that Victor is NOT Sharon’s father.

While I’ll admit that Eileen Davidson hasn’t been used to the the best of her abilities in the last few years–the haunting by “Sabrina”/Adam and the hysterical pregnancy were the absolute nadir for me–I always hoped against hope that the writers would eventually write something worthy of her talents. It’s very hard for me to imagine Y&R without Ashley Abbott; to this day I still consider her and Jack, along with Katherine, Jill, Victor and Nikki, to be the core characters of that cast. The Abbott family is now down to one(and no, I don’t count Billy and don’t even get me started on all those tired ass offspring running around); I’m thinking they’ll never get rid of Jack, but with this crazy bitch, apparently nothing or no one is sacred.
