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.

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 Bloom is The only Heather. Thank God she’s better!

I’m wondering about Chris , also.

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 such trash. Maybe it will at least get her enough exposure to get a good job … soon. Maybe Y&R will call her back. She would be very good against Justin Hartley’s Adam even though I would like Adam and Chelsea together. Besides with Leslie gone, they are an attorney short.

We are so happy to hear the news and to report that The Young and the Restless’ Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe) is a mom!  The actress and her husband Rob Meder are the proud parents to their daughter named Josephine James.

Josephine weighed-in at 6lb., 11 oz. and measured 20 inches long.  The joyous moment for Liz and Rob  didn’t come without some hiccups, especially for Liz entering the UCLA Santa Monica hospital amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

PEOPLE had the exclusive pics and statement from Hendrickson who expressed: “We are thrilled to introduce our little Josephine James Meder to the world – she’s perfect in every way,”

Earlier  week on her Instagram. Liz revealed: “We’ve decided to induce labor with everything moving so rapidly. We felt it was safest to get her here safely before Rob wasn’t allowed in the delivery room like they’re doing in San Fran and NY.”  However, she later added,  “20 mins before we walked into the hospital the midwives were notified that after delivery only the mother is allowed with the baby postpartum. Rob has to leave. We are heartbroken but we also feel like I’m in incredible hands. My midwife Didi is a dream and my nurse Andra is so awesome!” she wrote. “I know i will be well supported by everyone in the maternity ward.

Share your congrats and well-wishes below for Liz and Rob and their new family member, daughter Josephine!
