Some more soap stars, err former soap stars are on Bravo TV! This time it’s none other than former The Young and the Restless star Vail Bloom who played Heather Stevens on the show between 2007-2010.

Many have fans have wondered what happened to the talented beauty who was heavy in story with then Adam Newman played by Chris Engen!  Later, after Bloom left the number one soap, Y&R brought the character back in the form of Daytime Emmy winner Eden Riegel, only many felt that Bloom embodied the character of Heather.  It was also never really made clear why Vail left the show as she finally seemingly had won over the audience, but now it may have become a bit more clear.

On yesterday’s episode of Vanderpump Rules  (Monday’s 9PMET/PT) entitled “New Girl, Old Grudges,” Vail is welcomed to the cast of the hit reality series as the new waitress at Lisa Vanderpump’s West Hollywood hotspot, SUR!

In the key scene, Vail interviews with Vanderpump about how she is an actress who needs to make ends meet and needs a job.  When Vail tells Lisa that she graduated Princeton, Lisa doesn’t think with her smarts, looks, and experience, that she will stay long on the job.

In the confessional during the episode, Vail admits she got into drugs and the Hollywood lifestyle around the time she was on Y&R,  but that she has pulled herself out of that, and now she mediates wherever she goes, and is looking to put that part of her life behind her.

Below watch Vail’s debut clip on Vanderpump Rules where she gets the waitress job!  Then let us know, shocked to see Vail again?  Did you like her as Heather Stevens?  Will the reality series make Vail the breakout star of the season?  Comment below!

Sad she got into drugs, but glad she was able to pull herself out of it. Good luck to her. Maybe she can get some acting jobs.

It took two emmy winners to replace her: Eden Riegel and Jennifer Landon.

Well, I liked Vail and Eden. They both brought good things to the character of Heather. I wouldnt mind either of them returning since Paul has a son and is expecting another child. I think this time I would lean towards Vail because she was a bitchier version of Heather and I would love to see her chew into Dylan!

Vail was so beautiful as Heather and very good in the role. I also remember seeing her in a commercial back then. It is too bad that she got into drugs, but happy she straightened herself out. Not all can. It reminds me of Robert Downey, Jr. when he had his drug problem. I was so disappointed because the man was amazing and had such good physical comedy. I was so happy when he made his comeback and just look at his success now. I am happy she is back to acting, but it is too bad she is in… Read more »

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
