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

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.
