While Bravo's "The Real Housewives" reality franchise has always been considered an unscripted soap, tonight marks the first time a current soap star will be seen as a regular when "The Young and the Restless" and "Days of our Lives" actress Eileen Davidson joins the group of women in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
While Eileen Davidson ("Days of our Lives," "The Young and the Restless") won't be appearing on the reality series until its third episode, Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" managed to snag its highest-rated season premiere in over three years, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data, with 2 million total viewers tuning in, up 25 percent from the prior season premiere (11/4/13), on Tuesday, November 18. The renewed success of "Beverly Hills Housewives" follows the recent performance of "The Real Houseweives of Atlanta," which premiered its seventh season on Sunday, November 9 and became the network’s highest-rated season premiere in Bravo history with over 4.5 million total viewers (based on L+3 ratings data) and 2.7 million Adults 18-49 (based on L+3 ratings data), up 26 percent and 27 percent respectively from the season six premiere.

While she's currently under contract with CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as Ashley Abbott, Eileen Davidson is set to once again reprise her role of Kristen DiMera on NBC's "Days of our Lives" next year, reports Access Hollywood, which has an exclusive first look at Davidson in the DiMera mansion while filming scenes this past Friday, November 14. Davidson is slated to begin airing in the spring of 2015, based on the current filming schedule of the daytime drama series, Soap Opera Network has learned.
It’s always a struggle for “Days of our Lives’” Brady (Eric Martsolf) to stay sober, but events that transpire this week on the NBC sudser push the character to the absolute limit: Following a slew of outlandish circumstances that only happen on soaps, the stressed out addict was just slapped with the news that his ex-lover, Theresa (Jen Lilley), is pregnant! But just how will Brady handle this latest curveball? And will he and Theresa ever be reunited with the (as of now unborn) child that Kristen (Eileen Davidson) secretly stole? Soap Opera Network spoke with Martsolf to get his thoughts!
Last week Bravo finally confirmed that "Days of our Lives" and "The Young and the Restless" actress Eileen Davidson had officially joined the cast of the network's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." As viewers get ready to watch all the drama unfold between Davidson and her co-stars, which includes former soap star Lisa Rinna ("DAYS," "Melrose Place"), TV Guide Magazine has an exclusive look at Davidson's home.
Emmy-award winning soap star Eileen Davidson has plenty of experience dealing with drama, having played “The Young and the Restless’” Ashley Abbott since 1982 and “Days of our Lives’” Kristen DiMera since 1993, but the actress is admittedly having a bit of trouble adjusting to the intense drama she’s enduring as part of the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!”
It’s been a “secret” for months, but the news that “The Young and the Restless’” Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott; Kristen DiMera, “Days of our Lives”) and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, “DAYS”) have joined the cast of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is slapping the few unaware viewers in the face this morning: Both soap divas are featured in the reality series’ brand new cast photo and Season 5 premiere trailer that Bravo just released!
On Thursday, November 6, fans of NBC's "Days of our Lives" will once again say goodbye to Eileen Davidson as she wraps her three month stint as Kristen DiMera on the daytime drama series. During her return, much of Kristen's storyline revolved around her rivalry with Theresa (Jen Lilley) and her unusual relationship with Daniel (Shawn Christian), which included a roll in the hay.
As previously reported, soap stars Lindsay Hartley (“All My Children,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Passions“), Crystal Hunt (“Guiding Light,” “One Life to Live”), Vanessa Marcil (“Beverly Hills, 90210,” “General Hospital”), Chrystee Pharris (“Passions,” “General Hospital”) and Hunter Tylo (“The Bold and The Beautiful”) have signed on for POP's newest reality series, "Queens of Drama," where the ladies will work together to produce a pilot for a new serialized primetime drama series. As the poster above warns, today, October 28, marks the beginning of production for show. Donna Mills (“General Hospital,” “Knots Landing,” “Melrose Place”) will also be taking part with special appearances.
With soap stars Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, "DAYS"; ex-Taylor McBride, "Melrose Place") currently filming the fifth season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," it was only a matter of time before a network greenlit a new reality series/docu-series comprised solely of the divas of daytime and primetime soap operas.
As previously reported, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is currently on location filming scenes in Amsterdam for upcoming episodes of the daytime drama series. In a soap opera twist, cast members from the soap met up with the stars of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which reportedly now includes former "B&B" actress Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed). Incidentally, because Bravo has yet to confirm either actresses participation in the series, it looks like the meeting of the former soapers (along with "Housewife" Lisa Vanderpump) and the cast of "B&B" has resulted in the "secret" being revealed!

While it has yet to even be confirmed that "The Young and the Restless'" Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) has joined the cast of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," much less the rumored $750,000 payday she's reportedly said to be receiving for working on the reality series - a record for a new cast member - Radar Online is reporting that Davidson is already feuding with co-star Kim Richards.
