The Young and the Restless Spoilers: An Update On Eileen Davidson

As many fans know, Eileen’s mother-in-law is Pat Van Patten, who was married to Dick Van Patten. Their son, Vince Van Patten, is Eileen’s husband. 

In May, Eileen shared a photo of their shopping trip to Bloomingdale’s in Beverly Hills and captioned it with, “Shopping and lunch with the loveliest MIL!”

In April, Eileen also opened up about her character and her mental health issues on the show.

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Eileen says that she first talked to Executive Producer and Head Writer Josh Griffith about the possibility of this storyline back in 2023 when Ashley and Tucker were having problems in their marriage.

She said, “He remembered and got really inspired by that. It makes my head hurt because it’s Ashley and then sometimes mid-scene, I’m becoming the alter, so I’m starting off as one and ending up as another.”

In October, she was also mocked for promoting diet culture online

That month, Eileen  shared a photo on her Instagram account. On the cover, it says, “Eileen Davidson: her secrets to feeling great at 64,” along with, “Soup Off 14lbs This Week – Speeds Weight Loss by 691%.”

That last part certainly rubbed a lot of her The Young and the Restless fans the wrong way.

Many of Eileen’s social media fans and followers sure had a lot to say about the cover. Some of them even mocked her for promoting ‘soup diet’ culture. Some comments included, “Oh my gawd. I thought these archaic notions were from the 80s. This is CURRENT? 14 fricken pounds in a week is so unhealthy wtf!! Cmon @eileendavidsonofficial.”

Eileen never responded to the criticism.
