I saw this interview of Eileen Davidson posted yesterday. Interviews with Queen Eileen are always interesting, especially when she’s doing as much as she is. She talks about Y&R, DAYS and RHOBH.
Despite earlier reporting that she would be back on DAYS in February and then in March (one of those was on a link from DAYS’ Facebook page and the other was in an actual publication, making it all the more WTF that neither turned out to be true), this says her return will be mid-April. Worse than the wait, though, ED says she only shot 10 episodes of DAYS. That seems completely ridiculous to me. And there’s no mention of any other impending returns, which is also disappointing. In addition to all the other potential story she’s got, it would be nice to see Kristen have an arc with her other former BFF Billie, and the show could capitalize on ED/Lisa Rinna’s Real Housewives exposure.
It sounds like things will get interesting for Ashley on Y&R, though. I’d heard mention of the whole thing about Ashley not being John Abbott’s daughter genetically, but I just pushed it out of my mind. On the one hand, it’s great to mine a show’s history for storyline potential, but this is a detail I would just as soon leave alone. I’m not sure how it will be written, but it’s hard for me to believe there’s much to be gained from scandalizing a decades-old family secret that is honestly not any of anyone’s business.
I read that Jerry Douglas is coming back as the ghost of John Abbott – maybe he will be visiting Ashley rather than Jack???
Only ten episodes? Grrrr!!!! ):
Has anyone else noticed that Ashley is much more Kristen-like this time around???
