Soap operas are notorious for putting characters in the most over-the-top, dramatic, and unpredictable situations. Ashley Abbott, the character Eileen Davidson has played on-and-off for more than 30 years on The Young and the Restless, is no exception. In that time, Ashley has gone through quite an emotional roller coaster that includes getting amnesia, stealing her ex-lover's sperm, and being blackmailed.
Wow. It seems like the only person who could keep all of those plot twists straight would be Eileen. But can she do it in 30 seconds or less?
