Soap actress Eileen Davidson may have walked away from “Days of our Lives” for a short time, but the fan favorite is headed back to the Salem spotlight!

According to TV Guide, the actress (who also plays Ashley Abbott on “The Young and the Restless”) will begin filming at “DAYS” this March for “a powerful Kristen DiMera story arc” that will hit the air this summer!

“The writers have some great things cooking for Kristen and we can’t wait for the fans to see what this will mean for Salem,” says co-executive producer Greg Meng. “Must-watch TV at its best!”

As fans may recall, Kristen was horrified when a super-racy video of her having sex with (ok, raping) a priest (Eric, Greg Vaughan) was publicly blasted during her wedding with Brady (Eric Martsolf). Since then, she’s been M.I.A. — so her reappearance in Salem should make for some pretty scandalous story! Stay tuned…
