Eileen Davidson was already a professional actress before joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The former model won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Kristen DiMera on Day of Our Lives. She’s also known for her role as Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless. That’s why she gets the big Bravo bucks — $750,000 per season.
Her husband, Vincent “Vince” Van Patten, is an actor too. The son of the late Dick Van Patten (father on Eight Is Enough), Vincent started acting at a young age. As a child actor he appeared in several TV shows including Bonanza, Adam-12, and Wonder Woman. In addition to becoming a professional actor, Van Patten became a professional tour tennis player in the 1970s. He reached the third round of the US Open twice (1982, 1983), and once at Wimbledon (1985). He is currently a commentator for the World Poker Tour, and co-wrote the mystery book, The Picasso Flop (Texas Hold’em Mysteries). Vince occasionally appears on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
