Eileen Davidson may have just returned to the set of “Days of our Lives” to reprise her role as Kristen DiMera (to air later this summer), but that’s not the only sudser she’ll be appearing on: She’s heading back to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott later this month — and Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) will be joining her!

According to Soap Opera Digest, the onscreen sisters will be taping scenes on Thursday, March 20 for a “family event” that will air on Friday, April 18. Davidson will also appear in the Monday, April 21 episode of the show.

“I have such a wonderful history with ‘The Young and the Restless,’” Davidson previously told Soap Opera Network. “They don’t really have to do much to win me back for a couple of days. I’m happy to do it, and it’s fun for me.”

“The Young and the Restless” has seen a lot of actors go as of late, and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Abbott) may be the next to depart the canvas!

According to a tweet sent out by TV Guide’s Michael Logan, there are rumors circulating that the New York native has chosen not to renew her contract and therefore will soon be leaving the show. At press time, neither “Y&R” nor the actress had commented or confirmed the news.

What would you think if Hendrickson decided to end her six year stint in Genoa City? Would you be sad, or would you take it in stride? Let us know in the comment section below!

What’s more, “The Talk” and “Let’s Make a Deal” delivered their best February sweeps performances ever! “The Talk” averaged 2.94 million viewers, and “Let’s Make a Deal” averaged 3.23 million viewers. “The Price Is Right” was also up in ratings since last year, averaging 5.46 viewers.

Congratulations, CBS!

There’s been some behind the scenes buzz that perhaps Jon Lindstrom (Kevin Collins, “General Hospital”) and Cady McClain (Kelly Andrews, “The Young and the Restless;” Dixie, “All My Children”) recently had a secret wedding ceremony, but it’s a mere rumor no longer: Lindstrom has revealed that McClain is in fact his brand new wife!

The official Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today, and fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” may have noticed something peculiar: Both online versions of the shows were much less represented than their network counterparts.

Despite the National Academy of Televisions Arts & Sciences declaring last October that the web sudsers were eligible to compete against “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Days of our Lives” and “General Hospital,” only four actors are on the list: Oustanding Younger Actress pre-nominees Kelley Missal (Danielle Manning, “OLTL”) and Denyse Tontz (Miranda Montgomery, “AMC”) and Outstanding Younger Actor pre-nominees Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King, “OLTL”) and Eric Nelson (AJ Chandler, “AMC”).

“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!
