Vail Bloom Makes Another Return to The Young and the Restless


Drama, drama, drama is ahead for The Young and the Restless’ Daniel (Michael Graziadei) and Lily (Christel Khalil) with the return of Heather played by Vail Bloom.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the actress will be back on the CBS daytime drama series starting with the July 14th episode.

Just how long Heather will be in Genoa City this time, remains to be seen.  When Heather was last in town, she broke Daniel’s heart revealing that she had developed feelings for and fell in love with someone else. After their rocky marriage crumbled, Heather headed back to Portugal with their daughter, Lucy. Since that time, Lucy came back to GC for a visit, to help her father, Daniel through the ‘death’ of his mother, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford).


As Y&R fans recall, Vail took over the role of Heather Stevens back in July of 2007 and left the role in the spring of 2010.  Two other notables actresses of daytime fame, Eden Riegel (ec-Bianca, AMC) and Jennifer Landon (ex-Gwen, ATWT) played the role following Bloom. It was not till earlier this year in 2023, that Bloom returned to the role.

So, are you looking forward to seeing what trouble Heather instigates and into the rekindling of, and burgeoning relationship of Daniel and Lily? Would you like to see Vail back more full-time? Comment below.

Vail great as Heather. Hope she has good storylines to keep her on Y&R for a long time.

Despised Eden in. Just curious, isn’t she older then Daniel?

Nope she’s 40 and the Graz is 43

Forget these cameo drop-ins; we need her full time. As a former Daniel fan, I don’t mind saying his return has been a letdown. Reuniting with Lily? BORING! Thus far, his best scenes were with his daughter, a terrific young actress with real promise. And his betrayal of Phyllis was disturbing and out of character. Maybe Heather can zap him back to life. And no scenes with former BFF Kevin? Unforgivable !

That’s a head scratcher! Daniel and Kevin were best friends and not one scene together??

Lew S,
Maybe it’s just because he’s not available. He’s still on Days chasing after some guy I imagine.

I totally agree. Boring no chemistry between Daniel and Lilly. Boring. Also agree horrible how he betrayed His mother and Summet and told the world Phyllis was alive. Sacrificed his mom for Diane. RIDICULOUS. Also can’t stand how righteous Kyle is when he would have the have done anything to protect his mother and then he hops in bed with Audra. Jack should be so proud of his self righteous son

Oh how I absolutely love this comment. I am so very sick of Kyle, Diane and Jack. Its sickening!

Vail Bloom is boss!
Pls keep her around. Genoa City needs a no nonsense smart woman around. She fills the void left from Christine, Avery and Amanda. Not to mention she’s Paul s daughter, a Williams.
She’s absolutely stunning and a great actress and maybe she could rekindle her old romance with a heartbroken Adam?!

The show needs more characters. While Heather returning will only sadden me more that the show will not bring Doug back as Paul, having Heather back will hopefully lead to more stories.

Not sure where but any new character, albeit one with history on the show, can only lead to less repetition and more diversity in story.

She’s a beautiful woman, but I’d say too sophisticated for Daniel. He seems to stay the “younger” man, I can’t explain it.

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to help his clients lose weight; many of them were celebrities. Simmons himself, admitted to at one time to being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.
