Eileen Davidson Keeping Busy Filming Days Of Our Lives, The Young And The Restless And The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!

Eileen Davidson is keeping herself busy these days  — this fall, the Emmy-winning soap opera actress is going to be appearing in both Days of Our Lives and The Young and the Restless, and of course on the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! But how on Earth is she going to have time for all of that? Well Eileen says she’s just doing what needs to be done.

"This kind of acting opportunity would never have happened back when the daytime-drama world was really healthy," Eileen shared with TV Guide. "Now times have changed. Soaps are trying to stay relevant. They want to stay on the air. They're willing to set aside that old competitiveness to help each other out. My characters are 180 degrees apart — from the way they look to the level of their sanity."

"Eileen is a phenomenal talent, and no one wants to lose her," Y&R executive producer Jill Farren Phelps said of Bravo’s newest housewife. "We fought hard to bring her back on contract because she is a huge part of our history." Peter Bergman, Eileen’s tv brother, agrees: "It's just not the Abbott family without her. Who could blame Days for loving Eileen — she has a showcase there that's off the fucking charts — but we really need her over here."

Eileen has a long history with both soaps, and there’s always room for new opportunities. "I've had really good times in this business and really slow times, and it all works out," she shared. "I've had a fantastic career, but I came to a big, wonderful realization a long time ago: None of this defines me."

If that's not enough Davidson, this mother of three — married to former actor/tennis pro Vince Van Patten — has also signed on to the next season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for a reported $750,000, the highest salary ever paid to a new housewife in the Bravo franchise. "I don't know what you are talking about," says a not very convincing Davidson when asked about the reality-show gig. "I'm not paying much attention to anything that's been written." Maybe not, but sources say a Bravo crew has already followed Davidson to work at Y&R, with her costars asked to sign confidentiality agreements to keep it all hush-hush.
