The Young and the Restless has lost another talent at Y&R, the second loss in two weeks.
Y&R star Eileen Davidson is out at the CBS soap. Daytime Confidential has confirmed that Davidson did not sign another contract with Sony. Sources say Sony has a no raise policy that seems to be pushing fan favorites out like the recent Mishael Morgan who weeks ago announced her departure from the soap over contract negotiations. Both actresses quit due to their policy.
The character of Ashley was not used to it’s full potential
The character of Ashley Abbott has not seen much of a storyline since the new Executive Producer Mal Young has taken over writing. It seemed Ashley was all over the board from a no strings attached fling with Jabot employee ultra young Ravi Shapur(Abhi Sinha) to the latest “Who is her brother Jack’s real Daddy” storyline.

Ashley’s paternity secret that John Abbott was not really her bio dad was kept for 20 years on the William J. Bell CBS soap and was recently revealed, it lacked luster tenfold and fans were very disappointed. There were so many places they could have gone with that very important revelation.
Eileen Davidson is the original Ashley Abbott
Eileen Davidson joined the William J. Bell soap in June 1982 and originated the role of Ashley. She was a fresh-faced Chemist college grad who was a fan favorite as soon as she hit Genoa City. She is leaving on the heels of Mishael Morgan’s departure who plays vixen Hilary Curtis. Hilary just recently started getting more airtime and a longtime awaited reunion with love Devon Hamilton ( Bryton James).
The Young and the Restless is bringing in new blood
The CBS soap seems to be bringing on new characters and the no raise Sony pictures policy seems to be hurting actors and actresses who have been there a few years or more. The question is will the CBS soap be losing more talented actors or actresses?
Davidson is talented and we will be seeing her again
Eileen Davidson just recently quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and plays a duo role on NBC’s soap Days of Our Lives. Soap Dirt will keep you updated as we learn more.
We wish Eileen Davidson the best and most likely will be seeing her on the big screen again soon.
