BAM REUNITED. Okay, okay, enough teasing! You know the awesomely fantastic blind item I've been tormenting you with all morning? Well Soaps In Depth just officially broke it! That's right folks, our girl Eden Riegel is joining the cast of The Young and the Restless as a recast for the role of Heather Stevens, currently played by Vail Bloom. You know yours truly is over the moon about the news, especially since I was the first to say Riegel should head on over to Genoa City to reunite with her sexylicious BFF and former All My Children love interest Elizabeth Hendrickson— who now plays fashionista Chloe on Y&R— when Luke and I interviewed Riegel and Hendrickson in April of 2009.
While I desperately wanted Riegel to play Mac, I have no doubt she will KILL as Heather, Genoa City's bitchtastic legal eagle. Just think, Eden Riegel going head to head with TVGN's Eric Braeden, and sharing scenes with the amazing Doug Davidson (Paul) and Michael Muhney (Adam) BUTTAH! Maria Arena Bell, you officially became Auntie Ri Ri once again with this casting coup!
