7 Things You Didn’t Know About Eileen Davidson And Vince Van Patten’s Relationship
Soap opera queen Eileen Davidson and her husband Vince Van Patten have been together now for well over 13 years now and have enjoyed an incredible marriage. The two stars are currently enjoying a wave of reality-television success as they appear on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since Davidson joined the cast in 2014. It’s rare that a couple experiences success together in Hollywood, let alone coming from the soap industry! Here are seven things you may not know about Eileen and Vince’s relationship!
7. Met On A Set
As a daytime drama actress, Eileen has enjoyed playing two legendary soap opera characters on both Days of Our Lives (DOOL) and The Young and the Restless (Y&R). However, Eileen and Vince’s story began in 2000, when Van Patten had a small stint on the Y&R, playing the boyfriend of Eileen’s character (Ashley Abbot). While Christian and Ashley didn’t last very long, Eileen and Vince sure did! They ended up falling in love and eventually got married in 2003.
6. Cheating Scandal
This is where things get sticky in their relationship. Both Vince and Eileen insist that they were only friends on the Y&R set and that they respected the fact that they were both married at the time of their introduction. They remain adamant there was zero cheating in both their respective marriages. Vince was married to Betsy Russell when he met Eileen, but ended up divorcing her in 2001 while Eileen was married to fellow soap star Jon Lindstrom, who she divorced in 2000. Sadly, after 16 years, Lisa Vanderpump of the RHOBH took it upon herself to bring up the blurred timelines around the Davidson/Patten relationship and once again rumors of their alleged affair surfaced. Eileen responded that they both knew each person was married, were respectful of that and remained friends for a lengthy time before diving into a relationship. It seems believable, unfortunately there will always be those who speculate that the two were cheating.
