Erika Jayne Joins Eileen Davidson On The Young & The Restless

Erika side-eyes Yolanda and David

I was immediately obsessed with Erika Jayne from the second she appeared on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so I don’t blame Eileen Davidson for fanning out over her greatness as well. While some of the other cast members didn’t know what to make of Erika Giradi and her Erika Jayne alter ego when they first met her, Eileen was immediately on board and it made me love them both even more. Now these two are both appearing in another TV show: The Young & the Restless, the soap opera that Eileen stars in.

I am already all about Erika’s singing career, so I’m curious to see how she fares as an actress on the soap. It seems like Erika has what it takes to kill it in just about every situation so I expect nothing less with this gig.


According to Entertainment Weekly, Erika will play a character named Farrah Dubose who is described as a “no-nonsense businesswoman who will interact with Genoa City’s movers and shakers” including Eileen’s character Ashley Abbott. I don’t even watch this show, but I am definitely intrigued and plan to set my DVR to record this The Young and the Restless episode when it airs on December 15.

The ladies could not help sharing their excitement about the cameo appearance on social media. Eileen tweeted, “I had a blast working with @erikajayne on Y&R! Can’t wait for everyone to watch!” and Erika quoted the tweet with her own reply complete with red heart emojis at the end: “So much fun @eileen_davidson!”

Erika also shared a screen shot of the Entertainment Weekly article on her Instagram, adding the caption, “Yes that’s me with Soap Icon @eileendavidsonofficial. This was so much fun and I can’t wait for you all to see it.” I’ll definitely be tuning in, that’s for sure.

Not only am I going to watch a soap opera for the first time in my life, but I’m also pumped because this collaboration is also supposed to be featured as a part of the next Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season – so not only do the fans get to see Erika as an actress, we will also get a behind the scenes look at how her appearance comes together.
