Eileen's character Ashley has been sparring with her brother Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) over their family business Jabot and who will have control over it.
Things took a turn for the better between them recently when they realized they were better as partners than enemies.
Eileen, 60, has continued with that storyline for months.
She also returned for several episodes following the death of Y&R star Kristoff St. John in April. He died on Sunday, April 2, at the age of 52.
Do her frequent guest appearances mean that Ashley will be back full-time on Y&R?
That answer is a big no, according to Daily Soap Dish. The mother-of-one has made it clear that she likes to pop in and out of Genoa City every once in a while without having to make a full-time commitment.
Other acting opportunities have come her way recently. She's currently promoting the upcoming flick 7 Days to Vegas that costars her hunky husband Vincent Van Patten.
