‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Beth Maitland Says Eileen Davidson Needs “A Rest” From Y&R


Young and the Restless spoilers indicate Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) hopes that Eileen Davidson (Ashely Abbott) gets the rest she needs by leaving the CBS soap. Beth’s strangely worded interview said Ashley Abbott will be missed in Genoa City. However, Eileen Davidson needs to leave to find some happiness.

Young and the Restless: Will Eileen Davidson Return?

Beth Maitland recently told TV Insider, “I’d love to see that happen (Eileen’s return), but what I would love most, is for Eileen to be happy… and is also able to return.” She continued, “Having spent a good deal of my tenure at Y&R outside of the building I can tell you that, at the end of the day, no job, no career, no new car, nothing you change is going to make you happy.”

“What I want more for Eileen than anything is for her to be happy. She’s worked very hard and she deserves that. It will be hard for us to adjust without her. I can only hope when she has a rest that, yes, she comes back.”

Those words are pretty strange and can be interpreted several ways since with circumstances behind the scenes at Y&R so questionable. Victor Newman actor Eric Braeden called out showrunners recently. The Young and the Restless actor isn’t happy about Eileen’s exit nor that of other legacy character actors.

Behind The Scenes Tension Responsible For Departure?

Beth noted during her interview that she has spent most of her time off-set. Longtime fans know she appears only sporadically in Genoa City. Is her reference to Eileen’s need for “a rest” a hint about sketchy behavior behind the scenes among show leadership? There is much speculation about a difficult situation going on backstage at the Y&R set.

Executive Producer and Head Writer Mal Young mistreated female staffers, allege set sources. Furthermore, a lawsuit may even be pending related to these allegations. Recently, Eric Braeden and Abhi Sinha took to social media to express their unhappiness with the current powers that be on the Young and the Restless.

Y&R Spoilers – Beth Maitland Speculates On The Abbott Family’s Future

Beth Maitland enjoyed the time Traci Abbott spent as CEO running Jabot. She thinks Traci has the same moral center that John Abbott (Jerry Douglas) had while in charge of the company. Y&R spoilers hint that Traci’s morality will cause her to be outraged once she learns that Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) conspired together.

Eileen Davidson filmed her final scenes so we should see Ashley’s reaction to these events soon. Beth asked, “Who better than Traci to literally put together the pieces of her family? We are family first.” Since Traci pieced the document back together, it’s a fitting question. Traci mending this broken family may be their best hope.

Only time will tell if Eileen Davidson gets what she needs by leaving Y&R right now. Perhaps a return will be in her future?
