On the Friday, February 19 edition of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” former soap star Sarah Buxton (ex-Morgan DeWitt, “The Bold and the Beautiful”; ex-Annie Douglas Richards, “Sunset Beach”) will appear as she tries to get the sharks — Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec and Kevin O’Leary — to make a deal over her one-piece swimsuit line that not only keeps things in the right places, but can keep you sun-safe and stylish at the same time.
Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, “The Young and the Restless,” ex-Kristen DiMera, “Days of our Lives”) stunned “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when she dropped a major bombshell on the show’s January 19 episode: she is a physical abuse survivor.
Think sublime chemistry between a daytime leading man and leading lady means a hunky-dory relationship off camera? Think again. In a video on bravotv.com, Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, “The Young and the Restless”; ex-Kristen DiMera, “Days of our Lives”) and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, “DAYS”) reveal they haven’t always liked — and occasionally loathed — their soap pairings.
Although she’ll soon be gracing our screens once again as Sami Brady on “Days of our Lives” in the coming weeks, actress Alison Sweeney will no longer appear in primetime as host of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” it was announced today by the show’s producers. Sweeney had hosted the program for 13 consecutive cycles, taking over from Caroline Rhea in 2007.
First announced in October of last year, Pop is ready to release their “Queens of Drama” as soap stars Lindsay Hartley (“All My Children,” “Days of Our Lives,” “Passions”), Crystal Hunt (“Guiding Light,” “One Life to Live”), Vanessa Marcil (“Las Vegas,” “General Hospital”), Chrystee Pharris (“PSNS,” “GH”) and Hunter Tylo (“The Bold and The Beautiful”) are joined with special appearances by Donna Mills (“Knots Landing,” “Melrose Place” and “GH”) in their new reality series debuting Sunday, April 26 at 10:00 PM, ET/7:00 PM, PT, immediately following the network’s exclusive live broadcast of “The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.”
The 10th anniversary edition of “Dancing with the Stars” will launch on Monday, March 16 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT, ABC recently announced. The competition series, which began in the summer of 2005 with “General Hospital’s” Kelly Monaco taking home the coveted mirror-ball, will be without long-time dancers Derek Hough and Cheryl Burke, however.
She portrayed Heather Stevens on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” for three seasons (2007-2010), but these days actress Vail Bloom is living it up as a reality star in Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules.”
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.”
An odd question for sure, but while on his book tour promoting his newest title, “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year,” Bravo TV executive and “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen was recently posed the question, “If Susan Lucci [ex-Erica Kane, ‘All My Children’] showed up at your door naked, what would you do?” For reference: He’d give her a robe!
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!
POP’s “Queens of Drama” is rolling out the red carpet and delivering exactly what the show’s title implies: In addition to the list of popular soap stars already attached to the reality show, “Dynasty” legend Joan Collins will also be a part of the new show!
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 Halloween season itself isn’t necessarily in style just yet for much of the land, the Halloween themed episodes of CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” has already been planned and will include several “Big Brother” contestants new and old, reports TV Guide‘s Michael Logan. Per the publication, “Big Brother” contestant Donny Thompson will be joined by fellow season 16 houseguests Amber Borzotra, Cody Calafiore, Zach Rance, Hayden Voss, Nicole Franzel, Caleb Reynolds and Devin Shephard, Season 11 & 13’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd, Season 12 & 13’s Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas, and Season 15’s Elissa Slater as they all appear in the Halloween themed episodes of the soap, airing Thursday, October 30 and Friday, October 31, that promises to be boatloads of fun!
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.
