I don't understand why there's so much misinformation out there about her exit. She didn't say she left because of scheduling or being exhausted. She most likely left exactly when she planned to from the beginning.
And that's what bothered me. She had no long-term interest in being on Days. She just went right back to Y&R like she did in 1999. Ugh.
No, she was already doing Y&R at the same time she was doing Days earlier this year. It's the first time she's done more than one show, and she enjoys doing that. She never had the option before like with other actors. Y&R held her captive for years. They wouldn't share her when Days wanted her back in the mid-00s.
I don't think Y&R will share her again. And she returned in March under special circumstances: Y&R's 40th anniversary. I don't know, I just don't feel optimistic that Eileen will ever return. Frankly, I have no desire to see Kristen again unless her crazy is dialed up to 12 and Susan appears along with her. The story she got this time around was not worthy of Kristen's legacy.
Y&R doesn't have a choice. Sony is now pulling the strings. They cancelled her contract with them to get on her Days because they wouldn't play ball. Y&R would be playing with fire if they stood in her way. They fired her before. They then threw her over to their sister soap and then put her on recurring status. This isn't a show that she has the greatest history with in terms of material and behind the scenes wranglings. Honestly, they better with hiring her to do a few episodes from time to time when they actually have something for her to do. These shows don't have the money to just have someone sit around, do nothing and get paid for years on end anymore.

Next year's Daytime Emmy Awards should be interesting for her.
