Eileen Davidson remains Ashley Abbott


This is the surprise of the week : Eileen Davidson (ex-Kelly Capwell) rejoins The Bold and the Beautiful this month ! And second surprise : she takes back her part from The Young and the Restless : Ashley Abbott Carlton !
The actress' firing on last November (see the
News of 11/19) had created a wave of discontent between her fans, what certainly led the producers of The Young and the Restless to propose to her to rejoin its sister show (both soaps are produced by the same company and aired on CBS).
Eileen has already signed a three years contract with The Bold and the Beautiful, enough to see of the future will me made... Happy come-back
, Ashley !

The news of the soap-opera


Bad news for the fans of Passions : NBC announced yesterday on Tuesday that the soap will not last more than summer 2007. Some ratings never able to raise have thus led the show to its end, NBC preferring to privilege afternoon talk-shows, less expensive to produce.
Passions was the last born of the American daytime soaps. Created on July 05, 1999 in the United States, only a few episodes had been aired between July and October 2001 in France, on TF1 (see the News of October 2001).
NBC also announced to plan the end of Days of our Lives in 2009. To be continued...
