Days' Eileen Davidson to Tape Tribute to Y&R's Jeanne Cooper

By June 2, 2013

Follow me on:

Days of Our Lives' Eileen Davidson (Kristen) will tape a special tribute to The Young and the Restless' Jeanne Cooper (ex-Katherine) on Monday. Davidson worked with the late Cooper during her years as Ashley on Y&R.

"I was asked to be a part of [Y&R's special tribute episode to Cooper]," notes Davidson. "Unfortunately, I was working on Days. Since I couldn't do it, a small crew from CBS is coming to Days on Monday to get an online tribute from me that they want to tape."

Davidson is grateful for the opportunity. "Absolutely, I love Jeanne," says Davidson. "She was truly the backbone of the show. She was such an interesting person, such an interesting woman on so many different levels. She deserved that kind of a show for her."

The hard part, for Davidson, will be coming up with what to say about the daytime icon.

"I've said so many things in print and been asked for so many quotes, since she passed," notes Davidson. "I don't know what I'm going to bring to the table that's new at this point, but I'll think of something."

It’s wonderful that CBS is doing an on-line tribute to Jeanne Cooper with Eileen. She was sorely missed during that tribute-episode on May 28th, especially since Stephen Nichols ( Tucker-Y&R, “Patch”-DAYS ) was there and he worked closely and had great chemistry with Eileen Davidson as Ashley. Oh! I wish that he would come back to DAYS…

Every good soap must have a villian(ess). Eileen Davidson plays that part so well. I love to hate her character. I have no idea how these incompetent writers will keep Kristen going, but the storyline Kristen/John/Marlena is getting REALLY OLD! Give us something more interesting to watch. Maybe she could spice up Roman’s life… :0)
Also, get Nicole and EJ back together. Sami should be with Rafe. Rafe & Kate – have no idea what idiot came up with that one HATE IT!!! Nick could work on his problems and take time to really court Gabi now that he’s seen the light.
JJ is the stupidest storyline I’ve ever seen on daytime TV. I just want to smack him! Send this spoiled brat back to boarding school – or at least, let Jen see what he’s doing.
And just what is wrong with allowing Abigail to continue with her virginity? That would be a novel idea for a soap – a girl who gets married as a real virgin. Pair her with Chad – Cameron has so far, been nothing but BORING!
Will and Sonny – I tolerate, but hate the idea. You can call me a homophobe if you like. But I’m a Christian who believes in the Holy Bible as God inspired it. So I just fast forward thru their sex scenes.
