Sit tight, kiddies! Daytime Confidential has learned fan favorite Eileen Davidson is leaving The Young and the Restless. The actress has been playing the role of Ashley Abbott on and off since 1982. Sources reveal Davidson wants to spend more time with her family.
The departure of the Daytime Emmy-winning star follows the recent exit of co-star Mishael Morgan (Hilary). "Eileen is a big family person, but Sony's 'no raises' policy makes it easier for actors to walk away these days."
Y&R isn't the only TV series fans know Davidson from. She played scene-stealing villain Kristen Blake DiMera and her myriad of doppelgangers Susan Banks, Mary Moira Banks, Thomas Banks, and Penelope Banks on Days of Our Lives. She also appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills from 2014-2018.
