The Young and the Restless (Y&R) Spoilers reveal that Eileen Davidson, who has portrayed Ashley Abbott on and off since 1982, is leaving the CBS soap opera; and it appears to be for good. The Actress revealed in June that she was leaving and now the final airdate has been announced. Eileen Davidson’s final appearance as Ashley Abbott will be Monday, October 29, 2018!
Y&R sources show that Davidson has been active on her social media, sharing that this has been the “saddest countdown”, along with a video of her last scenes with her Abbott family, saying how much she loves them all. She admits how “blessed” she was to play Ashley Abbott, and to “work with amazing people” and has “nothing but gratitude and love;” but she just want more control of her daily life.
It seems that Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) is one of the actors who is taking her departure the hardest. He is brokenhearted over he leaving and really doesn’t know where to put his emotions right now; on screen and off. As Y&R fans know, Ashley and Jack are deeply embroiled in family drama that is ripping the entire Abbott family apart, now that Ashley’s scheming has been exposed and the devastation is sinking in.
The Young and the Restless’ Ashley Abbott turned out to be ruthless and bitter and as vindictive as her ex-husband, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), when she switched Jack’s paternity tests, making him believe he was not John Abbott’s (Jerry Douglas) son. She destroyed her credibility as a CEO at Jabot, but what is much worse she ruined her trust and love as a mother to Abby (Melissa Ordway), a sister to a compassionate and ever loving Traci (Beth Maitland).
Viewers may have conflicted feelings over whether Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Billy (Jason Thompson) deserved what Ashley did, but she’s being a hypocrite with both of them too, no? How do you think Neil Winters (Kirstoff St. John) will react to everything his dear friend and new love has done?
There are two weeks remaining before Eileen Davidson’s last airdate, you can be sure there will be epic storyline all Y&R fans will want to see! Be sure to tune into CBS’ The Young and the Restless (Y&R) to catch up on everything happening in Genoa City right now.
