You might think you’re seeing double today when tuning into NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” but no need to get your eyes checked: Eileen Davidson is in fact appearing as two different characters. Today marks the day that the Emmy-winning actress appears as both Susan Banks (whacky mother of EJ [James Scott]) and Kristen DiMera in a storyline that brings the arch-nemeses face to face! But if that’s not enough to make you jump up and down in glee, get this: Davidson also appears on “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott today — which marks the first time in soap opera history that an actress is appearing on two different shows as three different characters in one day!

On “DAYS,” Davidson’s Susan and Kristen have a major face-off that’s sure to send fur flying — nearly all the way to Genoa City, where the actress’ “Y&R” alter ego, Ashley, is headed for trouble during Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) bachelor/bachelorette party!

To catch the actress in all three of her popular roles, be sure to tune into both NBC’s “Days of our Lives” and CBS’ “The Young and the Restless!”
