Ever since it was revealed that Emmy-winning actress Eileen Davidson will be returning to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott this September, fans have been chomping at the bit for more details regarding her return — including how the deal, which allows her to also appear on the Sony-owned NBC sudser “Days of our Lives” — came about. Soap Opera Network went straight to the Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, Angelica McDaniel, to find out!

“I’m just so thrilled to have her back in the family,” the exec tells SON of Davidson’s return. “Honestly, ever since [former executive producer Maria Arena Bell] took her off contract about two years ago, I’ve been fighting to get her back. I’ve done everything from talking to her, sending her flowers, sending her candy, tweeting ‘Come home, Eileen!’ So we’re so thrilled to finally have her back.

“We have some great story,” she continues. “And we’ve got some hot guys for Ashley to interact with, so it’s a perfect time for her to come back!”

And while having Ashley interact with all of Genoa City’s hot hunks will certainly be fun, McDaniel says it’s not all viewers can expect from the character’s return. “One of the great things about having Eileen Davidson back is we need to get strong women back to business,” she teases. “It’s one of the things that ‘The Young and the Restless’ has done very well, and we haven’t focused on it much in the last couple of years, so it’s time to get those women back in. We’ve got Jill (Jess Walton), we have Ashley, we have Abby (Melissa Ordway), Lily (Christel Khalil), a lot of great women, so it’s time to start seeing them be powerful!”

    The replacement Abby is NOT a strong powerful WOMAN we want to see at all, let alone in a business meeting. She needs to go ! As for Lily, the only thing fans are dying to see is her to get slapped every episode for being a TOTAL ARROGANT BITCH! She bitches at EVERY Man in her life and she is totally disrespectful of her own Father. SPOILED ROTTEN BRAT! Saying she’s a strong businesswoman is a slap in the face to every one of US out here with real jobs! She’s gotten where she is based on her looks (Jabot teen model) and now nepotism (her brother owns the club). She NEVER WENT TO COLLEGE and she knows NOTHING ABOUT BUSINESS! Funny how CBS is continuing to try to pin blame on MABell….The fans want her BACK! McDaniels was probably the one who told SONY/CBS not to renew her contract and now she’ll blame MABell…Hopefully Ash isn’t coming back to screw up Victoria’s storyline with Stitch! She did her time, she deserves to have Stitch … let Ash find her own guy.

    • Danielle

      First of all, Lily did go to college and she has worked under her father at Jabot dealing with its fashion line and also name me one person in Genoa City that has not gotten a job based on nepotism ( Nick, Victoria, Abby, Billy etc.)

      • Marilyn Israel Hicks

        Right on Danielle!!!!

      • mdbball02

        No she didn’t go to college. Working under her Father at Jabot did not give her a college education in Marketing or Business either. Victoria didn’t go to college either. But then again, who cares, no one goes to work in Genoa City anyhow! LOL

        • Runningmouth

          Lily did go to College, when Lily got Cancer, she had one yr left, she had already registered and couldn’t go because of her illness, and according to Neal, she did finish, MAB just never explored her college or put it to use…I only say this because you insist she didn’t go..

    • Myles Stevens

      Anyone who says the fans want MAB back loses all credibility.

      • RedRiver38

        Honey, you have NO credibility here. You’re love for JFP is falling flat here. Try another place to peddle your PR effort for her.

        • Myles Stevens

          As is your head-in-the-sand support of MAB. :)

          • RedRiver38

            Myles, I don’t support MAB at all. She was an idiot that deserved to get fired. Her ridiculous storyline when Victor and Sharon got married was a horror. She listened to the egomaniac Eric Braeden and it cost her the show. She deserved to get fired. CBS and Sony are to blame for bringing in the infamous show killer Jill Farren Phelps as her replacement. This woman has wrecked so many soaps you can’t keep up. Everyone screamed about her track record, yet CBS and Sony brought her in. Now we are seeing her destroy a once great, classic soap that was the bench mark for the industry. Now it’s a cheap looking, boring, poorly acted hour of pure dreck drama. Phelps hired two failed hack writers to do her bidding after firing Josh Griffith. Phelps’ reign of terror will spell the end of the show unless she’s fired. ABC kicked her off of GH and now that show has been brought back to life. Phelps is poison.

          • Myles Stevens

            And there we have it. Your hatred of Phelps, like 99% of the other haters, is based on things she did at other shows.

            Though I do wholeheartedly agree with your assessment of MAB. There’s one thing we can agree on.

    • Andrew Hass

      I thought Lily did go to college when she was married to Daniel but didn’t stay.Plus she worked at Jabot and i think she did okay there.Plus i don’t think Victoria finished college and she’s done okay in business.As for Eileen Davidson’s return my thinking is that Ashley might be mostly involved in a business storyline at least at the beginning.Maybe when Jack finds out Summer’s not his daughter it sends him into a tailspin of sorts and Ashley return to run Jabot in the meantime.

    • Myles Stevens

      And yes, Lily is a total arrogant bitch. And she’s never been more interesting.

    • denverdean

      Lily, unlike Victoria and Nick, did go to college. It was a big mistake to not work in college for those two characters because there is NO WAY a Newman kid would be permitted to skip college/grad school. Victor would’ve insisted because he never had the opportunity. It’s funny that Adam got his MBA and yet the mucked up the character, when he should be Victor’s favorite. Oh well. I’m looking forward to ED returning and I hope they put her front and center in the business world

    • Runningmouth

      Isn’t that interesting, you say Lily never went to college and knows nothing about business, she did go to college, too bad MAB never explored that…Funny how Chelsea just barely got her GED, and she has her own business, but Lily can’t be a business woman with a college education…go figure…
      As far as Lily being disrespectful to her father, her father is not respectful of her, he married the woman who tried to ruin her life and drugged her husband…
      Lily being a bitch, one comment, IT’S HEAVEN….

  • Laurel Twist

    Every time Mrs. McDaniel opens her mouth, foolishness comes out. She should not be trying to promote the return of strong women. The women should have stayed strong all along. There should never be a talk of a return to business storylines; YR was built on this, and she should have fixed this two years ago when she was first promoted. One of the most organic storylines, that needs to be told, right now, is the return of Chancellor Industries to Jill and Cane, which would also affect Colin and Jill. None of them has a business legacy on the show. We all know that Victor would have been perfectly capable of taking CI after Katherine’s death. THAT is Victor 101, but as of her last live tweet, Mrs. McDaniel said that CI is done, closed….. SMDH! Of course Abby and Lily should be apart of the business world. Both are legacy characters, and Abby is an heiress to two business fortunes. If these ladies were being written by a competent team, there would be no question of their ability to do so. Mrs. McDaniel blows much smoke, but the good thing is, we, fans, no longer believe her. We LAUGH at her. Under her leadership, YR has lost in major demos. The memory of Katherine Chancellor was poorly handled. She managed to help run away MS, BM, and the situation, with MM, was handled like it was amatur hour. Hurt fans once, shame on you, hurt fans twice, shame on us, hurt fans thrice…not gonna happen. Mrs. McDaniel does well with the game shows, and The Talk, but her leadership, of YR needs to be given to someone who understands how to tell a story. This is not her strong suit. BB does well, because Brad Bell still maintains 100% control of the show.

    • Myles Stevens

      She did absolutely nothing to run Michelle Stafford off (how many times does Michelle have to state that herself before people get it?); ditto Billy Miller. And I fail to see how the Muhney situation could have been handled any better

      As for B&B, it’s well produced, but 70% of the writing is dreck (unless you enjoy watching the same insipid triangles repeated over and over again on loop).

      • Laurel Twist

        Yes, please continue to believe the PR machine. They would NEVER reframe the truth.

        • Myles Stevens

          But you’re so sure they have reframed the truth because… why?

          • Laurel Twist

            Why are you so certain they have not?

          • Myles Stevens

            The simplest explanation is usually the accurate one, and there’s no evidence to suggest McDaniel or Phelps ran anyone off the show, especially when those actors (even Muhney!) have said nothing but positive things about them. But fans love to speculate and create conspiracy theories (being dramatic is in their nature as soap fans I suppose), and hurling accusations at the show runners is apparently easier than accepting that their favourites have decided to move on.

          • Laurel Twist

            ROFLMBO! Denial is more than a river in Egypt! Good Night!

          • Myles Stevens

            Well that was a well argued point. Well done. And yes, denial is indeed more than a river in Egypt.

          • RedRiver38

            Love your picture Myles. I guess your day job as a clown must be kinda slow these days, so you sit at home and watch soaps. Go take that shower and search the internet for a job. You’ll surely get hired by McDonalds or Burger King. It will suit your skill set.

          • Myles Stevens

            Yet another pathetic personal attack because that’s all your capable of since you don’t have any facts to back up your opinions. I’m surprised by your suggestion to go and work at McDonald’s… Didn’t think you’d want me as your boss.

          • RedRiver38

            I’ve got facts Myles, you just don’t like them. It runs contrary to your fantasy about Phelps. Sorry to shake your world with reality. Try to educated yourself, although I’m sure you slept through your middle school classes too. Perhaps you can get that new job at Taco Bell. See you at the Drive-Thru.

          • Myles Stevens

            Oh boy. More of the same.

          • Andrew Hass

            You have the right to your opinion but so does everyone.Plus you attacking someone else just makes you look bad and make you lose credibility.

          • wilson

            It’s a clown posse!

      • RedRiver38

        Hey Myles, are you JFP’s personal PR agent? If you think people are buying your spin, you’ve been drinking too much Kool-Aid.

        • Myles Stevens

          Classic cheap shot. Yeah, I’m totally JFP’s PR agent. And you’re Maria Bell’s I take it? Pleased to meet you.

          I’m looking at JFP’s Y&R and basing my views on the bare facts – not just making assumptions and jumping on a band wagon (based mostly on things that happened at other shows) like some.

          The show isn’t perfect. Some storylines aren’t working and the classic background music is sorely missed. The show is not as good as it was pre-2006. But JFP’s worst day is still better than LML or MAB’s best.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            I’ve been told that I’m actually JFP. :-)

          • RedRiver38

            You certainly act like it. Same shrewish personality with arrogance and abusive nastiness. So nice of you to show up and start the day with your trash. I do hope you choke on your own bile.

          • Myles Stevens

            Wow. Maybe re-read that comment and then reevaluate who is arrogant and nasty.

          • RedRiver38

            Myles, can you read? I was responding to someone else, but I guess the same can apply to you as well. BTW sweetie, you’re not the demo the show wants to attract unless you’re an 18 to 49 year old woman.

          • Myles Stevens

            Well aware that you weren’t talking to me, thank you. :) And as a 15+ year viewer, I can express my opinion as much as I like whether I’m the target demographic or not.

          • RedRiver38

            Myles, you’re deluded and obviously misinformed. Try to get educated. The internet is a wonderful source.

          • Myles Stevens

            So because I’m not giving in to mob mentality I’m delusional and uneducated. Right.

          • Myles Stevens

            Yep. It’s the only way they know how to respond to being overloaded with common sense.

          • RedRiver38

            Ah, another armchair critic. In your case, a toilet seat critic.

          • Myles Stevens

            Excellent way to get your point across. Well done.

          • RedRiver38

            Michelle Stafford had every chance to return to Y&R and she avoided it like the plague. She knew that Phleps didn’t want her back. Phelps wanted one of her friends in the role and now she’s got her. She didn’t want Billy Miller around and ran him off, then blamed it on Miller’s demands to have the same contract he’d had for years. Once her recast failed, she wanted him back but he told her to crap in her hat. Now she faces her biggest recast on the show, Adam Newman. Her track record is failure after failure. The character isn’t slated to return into next year now. Hopefully, CBS and Sony will get their act together and fire this witch. Then they can hire someone that respects Bill Bell Sr.’s legacy of greatness for Y&R.

          • Myles Stevens

            Okay, a couple of problems with all of that:

            1. If JFP did want Michelle out so she could give the role to one of her friends, why the hell would she wait over a year to do it? JFP wanted Michelle to stay, per Michelle’s own admission.

            2. Why the hell would she want Billy Miller out? She had just put him at the center of THE biggest story for the year, and the one that the show would submit for an Emmy. He was given the royal treatment by JFP’s regime up until then.

            3. Adam Newman is not the “biggest” of those recasts. Muhney hadn’t even been there 5 whole years. Replacing him is nothing compared to replacing Michelle Stafford.

          • Myles Stevens

            And the character isn’t NEEDED at this point of time. The smart thing to do would have been to leave him gone and presumed dead for YEARS.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            You’re a bigger person than I am, because you actually seem to have patience for that lunatic. Red has been bitter ever since Sony fired Michael Muhney. Bravo to you for at least displaying some civility while under attack. I definitely could not have.

          • Myles Stevens

            Thank you! I’m guessing these comments are completely unmoderated. That’s the only acceptable reason why this RedRiver person hasn’t been dealt with.

        • Myles Stevens

          Logan, Giddens et al were complaining about Y&R under previous regimes as well.

    • RedRiver38

      CBS’ fat gasbag spews more crap than a backed up toilet. She’s become a joke that people openly mock. Brad Bell won’t let her near B&B after McDaniel stabbed his sister-in-law in the back.

      • Myles Stevens

        And I see we’ve resorted to barbs about people’s weight. Bravo.

        Actually, from what I hear, Brad was a driving force in ridding Y&R of MAB (along with his mother and sister). If Brad felt so bad for Maria, you’d think he would’ve given her a job at B&B by now, like he did for various other ex-Y&R crew members. But no…

        Angelica reportedly HAS been involved in B&B. She mandated diversity (the additions of Carter and Maya) and insisted on there being multiple storylines at a time.

        • RedRiver38

          Actually, I don’t believe a word you say Myles. What’s your source? Who do you “hear” this from? It’s idol chatter on these silly soap boards that spread rumor and speculation. Unless you were there, it’s all fiction until proven otherwise.

          • Myles Stevens

            I could ask you the same thing about most of the things you say about JFP and McDaniel.

          • RedRiver38

            Actually Myles, Phelps & McDaniel are both hypocritical liars and just care about themselves, except Phelps who has shoved her stud muffin, Steve Burton, front and center on Y&R just as predicted when she brought him over from GH. He’s her boy-toy and now the “star” of the show! Just read their own words.

          • Myles Stevens

            And again, you’re stating your own heavily biased opinions like they were facts. Yes, Steve Burton is unfairly focused on. But I see someone is conveniently forgetting/ignoring/in deep denial about the good things this regime has done.

          • RedRiver38

            Dude, sometimes reality is tough to accept, which you certainly can’t. Everything about her is true. Prove that it isn’t. Her track record is easily available. Ask Anna Lee’s family about your hero JFP. She was fired by your hero at the age of 90 after being promised her role “for life”. Not more than three months later, Ms. Lee was dead. Her son said that Phelps’ cold-blooded treatment of his mother put her in the grave. Cast members at GH also confirm this story, so be proud of your hero. She’s literally got blood on her hands. Enjoy your show and your favorite, Steve Farren Burton. His greatest talent? He has his nose up JFP’s tush. It’s certainly not in the acting area.

          • Myles Stevens

            Sorry, your assumptions are not “reality” and JFP is not “my hero”. She’s not the best EP Y&R could ever have. In a perfect world, Brad Bell or David Shaughnessy would be EP. But JFP is still lightyears ahead of the last couple of EPs. And again, you’re referencing things that happened at other shows that have absolutely nothing to do with this show. GH fans holding grudges aren’t exactly credible witnesses to the state of Y&R.

          • Myles Stevens

            And regarding Steve Burton, he’s not my favourite actor either. But name an EP who doesn’t have a pet that they’ve shoved down the audience’s throats. With Bill Bell it was his daughter Lauralee. With Jack Smith it was Lauren Woodland. With MAB it was Genie Francis and Yvonne Zima. With Brad Bell at B&B it’s KKL and Kim Matula. I could go on and on.

          • Laurel Twist

            Sometimes folk can not see nor hear truth!

          • Laurel Twist

            Again, you state truth here! Claps, claps, claps!

      • http://unknown.com Bexx

        You are such a nasty little abusive hypocrite. What does her weight have to do with anything? You and your husband are clearly very much alike.

        • RedRiver38

          Oh spare me with you’re phony moral outrage. This woman is a Hollywood huckster that would slit your throat in the parking lot if it would mean an advancement in her career. Her husband works for TMZ which traffics in trash. Maybe she should step away from the buffet and craft services tables a few times. As David Lettterman calls these network executives, they are weasels. So happens Angelica is bloated up like a poisoned dog.

          Oh BTW Bexx, honey you define “abusive & hypocrite”. You putz.

It reminds me of that oh so fearsome Bexx special nastiness. Hurry up and get back to that little troll we all love so much.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            So sorry about your show’s continuing losses and poor performance with the ladies. Kinda like kissing a pig, eh my darling? Later Bexxy.

          • http://unknown.com Bexx

            You have a life? I couldn’t tell judging by your post count in here. Why do you always seem to disappear when there is good news for Y&R?

          • RedRiver38

            Oh Bexxy, you grasp at anything to call it good news. You’re just so desperate that it is cute. Off to lead my busy life. Hope you get one soon! Kisses my sweetest Bexxy.

        what a nasty thing to say. shame on you for mocking her weight.

        • RedRiver38

          Honey, she needs to cut the carbs.

      • sands of time

        Is she the one that leaked the MM story to TMZ? If so, I can understand how people would think it was all a conspiracy. If not, then she should be fired.

    • Andrew Hass

      CBS airs Y&R but they don’t own it or produce it.Yes CBS may have some say about how Y&R is run but at the end of the day Sony which produces the show may have the final say.As for Michelle Stafford she has said it was her own choice to leave Y&R because she no longer felt inspired to play Phyllis.She even said no one not the network, producer or writer was to blame for her leaving Y&R.

  • Derrick

    It’s so sad but also funny seeing all your negative posts!

  • Joel

    I sure hope that Ashley doesn’t become man-hungry like she was during her time with Victor/Tucker. I want to see a strong woman, who just happens to be an Abbott!

  • Eliza Sanderford

    If the story for Jill is any indication of how Ashley’s going to used it’s not going to be pretty. Jill, who used to be CEO of Chancellor Industries/Jabot is being written as a petty thief, who must commit insurance fraud for money. What’s more it’s looking like she can’t even pull that off. Did you know that fake jewelry can be made to look real enough to fool all the experts? Seriously?

    They aren’t writing for Jill. It looks like they have dusted off the tired ole Gloria/Jeffery capers and inserted Jill/Colin. But Colin was developed as an mob boss in charge of a worldwide operation and very dangerous. He was never a 2-bit con like Jeffery. Jill can run corporation & was developed as a business woman for decades, she isn’t anything like Gloria.

    They’ve had Jill, who has always been a strong female character, for over a year and there has been no strong, smart, or powerful writing for her ( Despite the BEGGING from viewers) Are they saying now that Ashley is returning it’s going to change?

      What are your thoughts about Eileen Davidson?

  • sands of time

    Almost none of these comments are about Eileen Davidson’s return to Y&R. Of course, she will first be seen in her emmy winning role of Kristen on DAYS starting Friday the 25th of July in what promises and will be a powerful 3 month story arc!!!

    • sands of time

      Due to the national preemption of DAYS for coverage of the downed plane, Eileen’s return to DAYS will be Monday the 28th of July!

  • Y&RViewers

    For all McDaniel’s mention of EMMY WINNER Christel Khalil and Legacy character Lily Ashby, I am at a loss why she and Cane continue to be closed out of Story and scenes, despite the LANE and Romance fanbases who clearly support and want to see them onscreen! McDaniel is firmly on JFP’s bandwagon and this will cost her, CBS and Sony because JFP’s Y&R is NOT what viewers want to see! I find it telling McDaniel has the unmitigated gall to mention Khalil’s Lily in interviews, etc. to sell articles but to this day Lily, unlike Victoria, her legacy counterpart, is treated like an ugly stepchild at a beauty convention by her! Khalil is immensely popular as is Lily but one would not know it by looking at Y&R; In JFP’s mind Lily and Cane’s only purpose is to pimp JFP and McDaniel’s favorites and viewers, like CBS Diversity get the message Angelica!

    • DNAC101

      Your problem is that Hilray is more popular than Lily. As a whole of fans were
      clamoring for someone to have some ‘snap’ to them that has been missing
      since
      the exit of Victoria Rowell. Hilray is popular as a single character.
      And it is partly because of the actress Mishael Morgan immense talent
      that the Winter’s has been reinvigorated. And for once since the exit of
      VR, the Winter’s storyline is actually arguably the one redeeming thing
      about Y&R.

      You had your chance when they had the potential
      of a love triangle between Tyler/Lily/Cane. That did not work out. And
      I personally liked the idea of Lily getting with Tyler. But that was
      that.

      I also remember how that major 2nd wedding of Lane was the
      two days when the ratings dropped. Didn’t appear based on the numbers.
      And that wedding receiving major promotions with commercials and all.
      Yet, was not an audience draw.

      What we have endured of Lane was
      bad storyline after bad storyline. Oh and them cooing over children like
      it is Leave It Beaver.

      So for CK, Mishael Morgan is the best
      thing to ever happen to her. And MM is carrying that storyline with
      panache. She is the heir apparent to VR’s throne.

        The only persons Hillary is more popular with is MR Altman and the few, vocal Lily haters; otherwise she wouldn’t need CONSTANT PIMPING by all the Emmy Winning Winters and Cane but especially Lily, all written OOC! Look at the threads–LILY is the vocal point of her story–this story, like the actress who portrays her, sucks unfortunately. As for VR (1) she is toxic–will NEVER get another job in Daytime; and (2) Tyler–that non-actor hired for his abs alone by CBS/JFP because TIIC bowed to racist chants from some to pair Lily with a Black man–boy was that painful to watch! Thank Gawd Sony put an end to that and he is on his way–out of GC! QUALITY is important in programming, that is something McDaniel should learn

          You make the logical fallacy that suggests that threads and rabid online
          fans makes someone popular. That is not how it works. The numbers aka
          ratings show that. Again, the 2nd wedding for Lily and Cane saw the
          ratings drop. So they made all that hoopla and marketing for their “big
          wedding” and the ratings dropped. Proof is in the pudding.

      This post states the truthI Brava! Thank you for stating the obvious!

  • Only watch Y&R and B&B on CBS

    Why not re-name the “soap opera network”? How about CBS network press releases? CBS promotion network? Angie’s friends network? More ideas anyone?

      I agree with you. Who cares what the fans want.

      My True Hollywood Story is a book all Y&R fans should read. Brenda Dickson was and always will be the real Jill Abbott

    They’ll dump Eileen again. Let’s face it her character on Y&R is on the dull side. July 28th fans of Ashely need to tune into Days and see what a fantastic actress Eileen is unlike her material on Y&R

  • Renee

    Brenda Dickson My True Hollywood Story. It’s a great book by the real Jill Abbott

    Yes, Ashley and Jill can be great business women, Abby and Lily?… not so much.
    I’ve been sucked into this before with the promise of great story for someone . Jess Walton said the exact same thing about her story with Colin and that has been beyond ridiculous. The guy who plays Michael said the same thing about the storyline with Lauren’s affair, and that was lame as well. (I can’t even remember the character’s name she had the affair with. What does that tell you?)

    What Sony/CBS should do is fire the writers for the young and the restless, days of our lives, the bold and the beautiful. The writers for these shows can’t come up with anything good. All the writers likes to create dumb storylines for these shows. The bold and the beautiful writers just want to break up all the couples because they don’t really care about there characters. Brooke and Bill was this close to get married in Ahu Dubai but couldn’t get married because Ridge interrupted the wedding by showing Brooke a photo of Quinn sleeping with Bill. Bill says he was drunk that night. Ridge had no right to interfere with Brooke and Bill relationship. All Ridge wants to do is tell people what to do. Brooke should forgive Bill. For the young and the restless that show is worse. The Dylan father thing has been going on since from last November and so is Summer paternity results. Making Summer have 2 fathers is so ridicoulous. The writers for the young and the restless doesn’t care for the characters at all.

    The writers for days of our lives is so stupid to make Theresa hit John by a fireplace poker stick. Those writers doesn’t care for the characters at all. All they want to do is drag storylines for months. What Sony/CBS should do is fire Jill Farren Phelps and her writer crew because they are running out of ideas for the show and they like to drag storylines for months.
