Y&R- Brenda Epperson WANTS to return; Encourages Fans to Continue Campaigning

I chatted with Ms. Epperson this past week and she's thrilled and humbled that fans still remember her and want her back . She encouraged us to call the studio, continue campaigning, and let TPTB know there is another Ashley out there that we'd LOVE to see back. She has tons of respect for Eileen and was NOT interested in returning the first time that ED was out & out fired without landing on her feet. She even said it was Eileen's role, she was sure she'd be back, and no way would she want to go after her job after that.

But she's CLEARLY more than ok with returning this time around. She's ready and if Josh Griffith is serious about writing for Ashley, they need to bring Brenda back. She admitted to not being a diva and contract negotiations would likely go smoothly on any and all money issues.

So can someone PLEASE post the CBS/Y&R contact info? Is Josh Griffith on Twitter? We need to make our voices heard to make this happen because she even said while she still has many friends in the cast & crew, nobody has bothered to call her and obviously, she's never worked with JFP and JG. She's such a delightful and down to Earth woman and 100% deserves a 2nd go-round on Y&R in light of Eileen's absence. She EVEN implied and all but said she'd step aside if DAYS ever let Eileen go and she wanted to return to Y&R. Talk about a class act.

And she's still STUNNING. Here's a pic she posted on her FB today:

Yes! We should make it happen. Ashley is really needed right now and Brenda Epperson could be a breath of fresh air for the role, even if its just a short period of time.

I loved her as Ashley. Plus if she's on the show it more less likely Eileen would bolt from DAYS. Win-Win situation.

I just think it shows A LOT of class that she didn't even attempt to go after the role when Eileen was fired the first time. But this time around, since Eileen seems more than happy to be where she is, I think she's all for it.

Even if it's recurring so they could bring back Eileen if she were to leave DAYS, I think Brenda would still go for it.

Off to post the campaign on Jess Walton and Jeanne Cooper's FB pages!

I'd love for Epperson to return as Ashley. She brought a nice warmth to Ashley, and she still looks beautiful.

One thing that pleasantly surprised me was that Brenda has over 100,000 Twitter followers, which is more than most current cast members of Y&R have. I had no idea she had such a large following.

I know Y&R is the most popular soap and whatever, but DAYS is actually writing for Eileen. She'd be an idiot to leave.

I am going to write ONLY with the hopes that if she is hired at Y&R, that the chances of ED returning and leaving DAYS again go way down.

Were you watching when Brenda played the part? She was AMAZING. She was Ashley when I started watching and will always be Ashley to me.

And a big NO to Beth Chamberlain or Kelly Mennighan Hensley as Ashley. KMH doesn't have the range for the role, I love BC but not as Ashley, and there's no point in bringing on a new actress when one that has already played the role beautifully is willing to return.

Agreed. I don't think Eileen wants to leave DAYS anytime soon anyway. Pretty sure she's getting paid what she deserves, has RAVED about the writing, and is happy where she is.

Besides, Brenda all but said to me if DAYS were cancelled or Eileen were canned and she wanted to come back to Y&R or they wanted her back, she'd graciously step aside. SUCH CLASS!

She and surprisingly James Reynolds started following me yesterday on twitter... She tweeted me her music.. She has a lovely voice.. I don't remember her as Ashley but the show needs this character, I would welcome her back. Maybe tptb will make a move.

Please also fill out the CBS Feedback form. I'd rather you click request than complaint, as I'd like this to be a positive campaign. But it's your choice. Just PLEASE use a female name, or it will likely be ignored.

They almost have to bring back Ashley, someone needs to be able to step on Jack's neck to keep him under control. lol

Eileen, Brenda, and Shari will be on this Blogtalk radio show tonight at 7:00PM. It's obviously an Ashley Abbott themed hour.
