I just honestly don't believe she will ever come back to Days. As soon as her contract ended, she basically high-tailed it back to Y&R. She prefers Y&R and wants to be there, which is sad because Ashley is such a snore. Days dropped the ball by not having her reprise the role of Susan while they had her. Susan is the mother of the show's leading man---she at least should have made an appearance! And Sister Mary Moira should have reappeared because of the Father Eric stuff. So many missed opportunities (but I blame them on those hacks Tomsell, not Eileen).
She didn't high tail it back to Y&R. She was there for, like, three days. Y'all are making her Y&R stuff so much bigger than it is. She may still return there full time, but she sure hasn't yet. She's doing these interviews NOW and NOW is not when she's working at Y&R.
Actually, she *is* back on Y&R on a more permanent basis. She confirmed on Facebook recently that her return to Y&R has evolved into a recurring part. She is even being given a storyline.
Not true. No official details were given. If anything, it was a tad cryptic. It sounds as though it's the same as what she's already been doing. She's not even on a recurring contract. When she's done it, she's been on set for about two days. They split up what they've filmed in multiple episodes. I have no doubt that what happened to her during the previous decade would happen again if she signed a contract: she'd be sitting around with nothing to do. Budgets are so tight now though, I don't know if they would even sign her for a job like that again. It seems smarter to have her on from time to time when they have something for her to do.

What's hilarious is when she finally met the actress playing her daughter, said actress ran up and exclaimed, "You're my favorite actress on DAYS OF OUR LIVES!"

DAYS has the material for her, and unlike Y&R, they weren't vindictive when it came to sharing her with that show. DAYS was willing to work with her too, trying to make it as easy as possible. She asked for twice as much work. She's said that DAYS' schedule is where all the shows are heading. She said that she's up for playing multiple roles like Wally Kurth. 'Everyone's doing it.' She also said that she relates to Kristen more than Ashley, and Ashley being the victim all the time was becoming tedious. She said that she started out playing bad girls.

This is the first time she's had two gigs. She has another possibility when it comes to work and that is DAYS. The door's been open and it's easy to bring Kristen back now. Those 14 years have been explained. She has a new history, new enemies, and has been reintroduced to a whole new generation of soap viewers. She's going to be on DAYS again next week.
