Why Eileen Davidson Left The Young And The Restless (Twice)

In 2006, Soap Central announced that Eileen Davidson was being let go from “The Young and the Restless.” The actor confirmed the news in an interview with TV Guide (via Soap Opera Network). “The show has been going through a lot of change in the past couple of years,” she said. “I’ve seen the writing on the wall for a while. I wasn’t shocked or blindsided, but it was kind of freaky.” Davidson felt that her character’s story hadn’t been in line with her typical behavior and revealed, “I just felt Ashley’s dignity and integrity were lacking.”

The role of Ashley Abbott wasn’t completely dead, however. In a soap opera crossover, Davidson took the character over to “The Bold and the Beautiful” for two years, only to return to “Y&R” in 2008. However, she got axed yet again in 2012. “Last week I lost my childcare. This week I lost my job! It all works out because I don’t need a babysitter if I’m not working,” she announced on X (formerly known as Twitter). That wasn’t the last time fans saw Davidson on television. The soap actor joined “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” in 2014, and she made her way into “Y&R” again, with her castmate Erika Jayne in a cameo.
