The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Eileen Davidson Stolen From DOOL To Play Ashley Abbott – Michael Muhney’s Firing Makes JFP Desperate?

The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Eileen Davidson Stolen From DOOL To Play Ashley Abbott – Michael Muhney's Firing Makes JFP Desperate?

Days of Our Lives fans were excited when spoilers were released confirming that Eileen Davidson was returning to Salem as Kristen DiMera. Kristen isn’t exactly a likable character, but she is sure to bring some crazy drama with her when she arrives. It’s a sad day for DOOL fans though, Soap Opera Digest has just revealed that The Young and the Restless snatched Eileen Davidson from Days of Our Lives and she has just signed a contract to return to Y&R full time as Ashley Abbott.

There are some major cast shake-ups going down in the soap world right now, and Y&R stealing Eileen Davidson back from Days of Our Lives is just the tip of the iceberg. We have nothing against Eileen Davidson, she is a very talented actress. But, let’s be real for a moment. Jill Farren Phelps and TPTB didn’t sign on Eileen Davidson because they recognized how talented she was, they brought her back in a desperate attempt to satisfy fans and replace some of the key characters they have lost over the course of the last year.

Judging by the reaction on the internet from Y&R fans today, the majority seem happy that Eileen Davidson is returning to the CBS soap opera as Ashley Abbott. Eileen Davidson is a great actress, but there is no way her presence can make up for the loss of Michael Muhney, Michelle Stafford, and Billy Miller.

It seems a little shady that The Young and the Restless decided to bring back Eileen Davidson literally just a few days after it was revealed Billy Miller had followed Michelle Stafford to General Hospital. TPTB at The Young and the Restless are obviously trying to clean up the mess that Jill Farren Phelps has created by bringing back veteran characters and fan favorites, but are they too little too late?

    If they think bringing Ashley is going to make up for getting rid of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller they are all crazy, not just JFP!

    Mr. Muhney tweeted out gratitude today or yesterday. It was very nice to know that our respect for his acting and our collective sense of injustice as to how he and the other actor/actress have been treated …mean something to him; that he has noticed. Now, CBS/SONY please quit playing this game.

    Do the right thing. We are so looking forward to seeing Mr. Muhney back to the once great The Young and The Restless as Adam Newman. And, for the actors on the show, it will be a great day for you as well since finally the show will have some real drama ON IT instead of behind the scenes. Thank you.

    Just get rid of Phelps! Michael Muhney needs to return! I only watch parts with Victor and Nicki, Nicki and Paul, Lauren, Michael and Kevin, Victoria and as long as she is not with David Tom, Dylan and Avery, Nick and Sharon but this stupid SECRET thing needs to die already! Chelsea and ADAM are a must and this needs to be with Michael Muhney. Sorry Jack, but they need to bring back Phyllis for you. They also need to stop with these outdoor scenes prior to every scene, it is getting OLD! Thank goodness I can fast forward through most of the show. PHELPS MUST GO!

    Perhaps Nicki will leave Victor for Paul. And Abba will have her mom and dad together again. Ashley and Victor have chemistry

    GH is on the comeback. Will hire Muhney to join Miller and Stafford by Oct. 1.

    Davidson is good only if they bring her back as a nut equipped with her son, the blanket named Robert.
