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.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Felicity actually was the first parent sentenced in the entire admissions scandal that broke several months ago.

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.
