The Phoenix rises again in Salem, U.S.A today on Days of Our Lives. How will Stefano (Joe Mascolo) deal with his daughter Kristen's (Eileen Davidson) continued relationship with Brady (Eric Martsolf) — the son of the DiMeras' sworn enemy, John Black (Drake Hogestyn)?
Who says you can't go home again, even while starring on another soap? Days of Our Lives scene stealer Eileen Davidson dished to TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan about her upcoming The Young and the Restless guest stint. The multi-tasking actress will reprise the role of Ashley Abbott for Y&R's 40th anniversary, while still appearing as DAYS' dastardly Kristen Blake DiMera. From the chat:
TV Guide Magazine: Can we safely assume that Sony, which oversees both Days and Y&R, made this magic happen between the networks?
Davidson: Yes, Sony worked it all out and it's been terrific! I got a phone call quite a few weeks ago asking if I'd be willing to come back to Y&R for a few days and did I want to think about it? I was, like, "Think about it? I don't need to think. Of course, I'll come back!" When [Y&R head writer] Josh Griffith spoke to you last summer he let it be known that he was sorry I was gone and that he wanted me to return. But, really, what were the chances?
I hear my beloved Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) will soon be paying a visit to her big brother Jack (Peter Bergman) on The Young and the Restless. Days of Our Lives (which like Y&R is co-owned by Sony Pictures Television) loaned Davidson back to Y&R for the very special episodes, according to my mole. READ MORE
Days of Our Lives is officially must-see soap opera again. The Brian/Sonny/Will/Gabi/Nick drama is the best young adult/teen saga playing out on daytime right now. Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson) is literally screwing over Jarlena (Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall) — and using their dimwitted-yet-hunky son Brady (Eric Martsolf) to do so. (Yes, I know Isabella is the boy's bio mama, but Doc raised him, when she wasn't purring like a horny house cat and/or being kept in a birdcage!)
A strikingly-beautiful and cunning Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) is actually providing root factor for Dannifer (Shawn Christian and Melissa Reeves). Yep, Salem U.S.A is finally a place I look forward to visiting every day. If you need any more proof of just how good DAYS is right now, watch the recap video below from Tuesday's show.
Johnny to Rafe: "Mommy had something to do!"
She sure did, lil fella. She sure did...
Monday’s Days of Our Lives was the day many Ejami fans have been impatiently waiting on. Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott) made love and professed their love and trust for one another. Rafe (Galen Gering) and Sami who?
Meanwhile, John (Drake Hogestyn) visited Stefano (Joseph Mascolo) to discuss Kristen's (Eileen Davidson) manipulations in Salem. READ MORE
Hiding behind the bathroom door, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) was saved from having to listen to Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Eileen Davidson) having sex by him noticing the Titan documents Nicole planted on Kristen’s computer. Brady accused Kristen of ulterior motives, but she denied any wrongdoing and rushed off. When Brady followed Kristen, Nicole slipped out of the room.
When Brady caught up with Kristen, the two argued for a bit, before Kristen revealed Nicole had been at her room earlier. She suggested Brady's ex may have planted the incriminating documents on her computer.
