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."
