BAM REUNITED: Eden Riegel Joins Pal Liz Hendrickson on The Young and the Restless!



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!

     I was beginning to think it was Eden towards the end. Heather, huh? I was actually digging Vail, but I’ll get over it. I’m happy with this, but why recast a character that we kinda like? Mac & Victoria recasts are much more needed than Heather. So, was Vail canned or she quit?

    Why???  This makes no sense.  Love Eden but she looks nothing like Doug Davidson.  

    Why not a recast as Mac (not that I want to see Clementine fire but if she quit)?

    I don’t care if she doesn’t look like Paul, all I care Eden is finally back on my screen!! I hope they give her some meaty stuff. She deserves it!

    I still don’t get why Aunt Riri doesn’t let go of CF already but meh. This news has mellow me down a little with all my anger toward tptb on Y&R. They better not mess it up!

     Frons should have did what he could to get Eden back once they moved AMC to LA. His loss. Jamey needs to get on a wishful casting for Bianca. The AMC fans will take a recast now that Eden is no longer available…

    if fair skinned, red headed Molly Burnett can be CC’s daughter then Eden can definitely be Doug Davidsons! I’m so excited by this news ABC’s loss (once again) is CBS’s gain. When is ABC gonna start keeping there actors? They’ve lost Billy, Elizabeth and now Eden to Y&R all wonderful actors and great characters on AMC and they just let them go. I’m sure Brian Frons is getting on the phone stat to steal someone from CBS…just don’t let it be Ellen Wheeler, OLTL has enough problems.

    Omg, I sooo thought you were going to say ER was the recast for Victoria.  I agree with the first poster – the need for a new Mac, Victoria, or Malcolm is much more serious.  I liked VB and thought she was getting good.

    I really like Vail bloom and she has great chemistry with both Doug Davidson and Billy Miller. But I really love Eden Riegel. She was magnificent as Bianca on AMC and on her web series Imaginary Bitches.  Will be interested to see who on the current canvas she is paired up with.

    I’m not ecstatic but I’m pleased. My lukewarm response is mainly because of two reasons:

    1. Now with Chucky Doll Pratt gone from AMC, I was hoping for Eden’s return to Pine Valley but considering what she went through with Pratt, and with CRAPuthers still there as EP, I can understand Eden not pressing to go back to AMC.

    2. I know I’m in the minority, and that’s fine, but I really, really liked Vail Bloom and always have. I would much rather see Eden casted as Victoria Newman or Mac Narcolepsy.

    With all that said, it’ll be great to see my girl Eden on a regular basis.

     Bianca or Kendall HAVE to be recast! Alicia is playing hardball, but she needs to shit or get off the pot with AMC. Erica Kane’s daughters are needed. I can’t think of a good enough actress in Eden’s age range to tackle Bianca, but I know Jamey can think of something…

    Congrats, Y&R fans!!!!

    Eden is amazing, so what she doesn’t look like Doug Davidson!  Who cares? She is a powerhouse and she will be great!!!

    I agree once again Brian Frons is freaking out right now and he should be. Another former AMC actor goes to Y&R, joining Billy Miller and Elizabeth Henrickson (love them as well).

    That has been AMC’s problem in recent years letting great actors go and keeping a lot of the crappy ones.

    I also agree Frons should have gotten Eden back when AMC first got to L.A. or even right after he fired Pratt.

    Jamey, you should do a wishful casting for Bianca, I think we will accept a recast with the right actress. (We don’t have a choice at this point)

    Congrats, Eden!!!!!!

    I thought Vail Bloom was fine.  At least she was sexy when she was allowed to be and she certainly wasn’t the worst actress cough’*Clementine*cough. 

    I have a really hard time seeing Eden in the role.  First off  i think she is overrated and second, why not recast her as Mac, that is where the real problem lies.

    I think it’s gonna tank

    Frons and Carruthers had better find a way to sign Julia Barr back on AMC permanently…because this casting coup has the potential to undo much of the progress AMC has made.

    AMC viewers LOVE Eden…and they may just jump ship and start watching Y&R just to see her.  

    So sad too, because I think AMC was making steady progress. When Swajokeski and Krapzmann take over, the show will start going downhill again. That, coupled with this will help tank AMC.

    I like Eden but I don’t see her as Heather. They will have to rewrite the character, as she has been reduced to a bad lawyer and a moron with awful taste in men. She looks nothing like Paul or April. Remember all the hype over Stephen Nichols joining Y&R? And it’s a big yawn.

    "They’ve lost Billy, Elizabeth and now Eden to Y&R all wonderful actors and great characters on AMC and they just let them go."

    Yet the poor use of Liz and Billy just shows how pointless the casting is if the writing is not there.

    I liked Vail Bloom’s version of Heather……………as well as her chemistry with Michael Muhney!!! Why did they recast her???? She was WAAAAAY better than Yvonne Zima and Clementine Ford, yet they continue to get free passes to BORE me with their boring, monotone and UNINSPIRING "performances"!!!! I would much rather see Eden replace Mac!! I guess they didn’t want to piss off previous "BAM" fans by having them play "rivals," but I saw NOTHING wrong with Vail’s portrayal!!!! I’m not gonna complain about having Eden Riegel back on my screen WHEREVER I can get her, but I agree——— she’s playing the wrong character!!!

    This is just another HUGE misstep the show has made. That damned casting director needs to be TARRED and FEATHERED!!!!!!

    I think Eden will fit in well at Y&R, but I’m not thrilled with her taking over the role of Heather. It’s a waste of a an amazing actress. I would have been MUCH more excited to have her as Mac — a character in DESPERATE need of a recast. Vail Bloom doesn’t blow me away as an actress, but she fits the character.

    I’m sure there will be major rewrites for the character to give ER more to work with, but I don’t care about Heather. Maybe that’ll change … 

    I hope this experiment doesn’t bomb, but it doesn’t sound promising.

    Definitely AMC’s loss, though.

    I’m not an AMC viewer, so I can’t speak to Eden’s talent, but I can say I think she has her work cut out for her. 

    The character of Heather has become an annoying, self-serving whiner who keeps her head in the sand and her foot in her mouth.   I don’t blame Vail Bloom;  I think she did the best with what the writers gave her.

    It will be interesting to see where they take the character once this beloved AMC alum takes over the portayal.

    I’ve hardly been watching Y & R lately because the way they’ve been dragging out EVERY storyline has made the show unbearably boring but I’ll probably tune in again to see how this little casting "coup" works out.

     While I don’t mind Eden in the role of Heather, for those that are looking forward to seeing going head-to-head with Eric Braden, forget it.  Not the way the writers continually bend over backwards to cater to his character.  And Victor has never shown a bit of decency towards Heather, and having Eden in the role ain’t gonna change matters either.  However, I am looking forward to watching her rip Adam’s ass to pieces and then some (the ONLY reason why I’m bothering to tune in is to see him get his just desserts).  It would be juicy if they did a Heather/Billy/Chloe triangle.  Here’s hoping that the writing will get better now since they have a stronger actress taking Vail’s place.

    I’m one of those few people that don’t think everything with Billy a explosion of chemistry. So I wasn’t interested in Heather and Billy, it was kinda eh for me. I think the only time I actually liked Heather was when she was rpping into Adam. That’s it.

    I think Eden will do an excellent job as Heather. Y&R made a good decision, but still needs to take care of the poor casting of Malcolm and Victoria, not to mention Mac.  They know how to cast as they have just proven with Heather and Tucker, Just getting them to do it.  Come on Y&R trim the fat with three poorly cast actors.

    I agree with the poster that this was her choice… This was more about Eden than it was about the role… This is just an educated guess but… they probably came to her for recasts of either Mac or Heather… She went with Heather because of her personal experience as a Harvard Law Student.

    BTW.. a Fan can still hold out hope that TAMARA goes over to Y&R as Victoria Newman

    However, this will probably be really good for the show (and Eden R. is a phenomenal actress, in my opinion).

    Would I have liked her as Mac?  You bet.  But, this is still great news!

    Now… if I had my druthers they’d bring back Cynthia Eilbacher as April (at least for a few weeks) and have an arc concerning April, Paul, and Heather (maybe Mary too!)… I’d LOVE to watch that.

    Like others, I would have preferred to see Mac or Victoria recast instead of Heather.
    Y&R should pull a "DAYS" and let Vail bloom play Mac, and we could get Clementine Ford to play Daisy, who will eventually be written off if anyone at Y&R has any sense.

    If they don’t make sense then what’s the point in them? I still have no idea what the point of recasting Malcolm was, or the point in the Tucker recast, other than making me realize Stephen Nichols cannot work miracles. Not to mention the awful Abby recast, or the mediocre Billy recast, or the awful Victoria recast.

    Eden was great on AMC, but I think that the writing at Y&R is much too poor and inconsistent to help her. Yes, AMC’s loss is Y&R’s gain, but that’s only if you think Billy, Chloe, or psycho Patty/boring Emily have been much of a gain.

    If someone is being hired only because of their name, not because of what they will bring to a show, then they are already facing a huge hurdle before they ever film one scene. That’s what this casting gimmick as Heather seems like to me. Hey, let’s put her with other people from AMC, who cares about the rest, let’s continue to allow Mac and Victoria and Daisy to rot.

    This AM I was watching yesterday’s episode, which, had Vail/Heather in a scene or two (Poor thing has gotten pulled into the ‘Great Purple Piece of Fabric" Caper) Clearly they’ll now make Heather a Front ‘n Center character….Yet I jstill ust don’t understand why this recast.

    BOTTOM LINE – EDEN REGAL IS THE PERFECT MAC BROWNING. Aside from Ashley Bashioum, that is. And it would mean TONS of scene’s with the Great Kathy Chancellor.

    It looks like this has the makings of a long term character.  They cast a well known soap actress in a part that has a tie to a long term character (Paul) on the show.  Additionally, she’s playing a lawyer and has the potential to interact with most of the characters based on that fact alone….everyone in GC needs a lawyer sooner or later! :-)  She has the potential to be the Christine "Cricket" Blair of the new millennium….not that I wish that on her. I’m just saying the potential is there for the character to be a major player on the show for a number of years.

    I will say I hope they keep Heather’s adversarial relationship with Victor.  His fued with Jack is getting tired after a few decades.  Heather seemed to be the only other character on the show that didn’t cower at Victor’s every word.  It was also nice to see a woman basically sneer in Victor’s face and just laugh him off as a blustery bag of hot air.  Generally women on the show fawn over Victor like lovesick school girls!

    Well, I am male and NOT straight but I have to go on record with everyone else–Vail Bloom is hot and gorgeous and frankly I think Y&R dropped the ball here; when she first came onboard I wasn’t fond of her, but she’s grown into a nifty little actress and I think she has ridiculous chemistry with just about all the men on the show (shame on you Y&R for not following up on that smoldering Heather/Billy rendezvous).  I like Eden Riegel, but this is apples to oranges if ever there was a case–not seeing her as Heather personally, but who knows.  And we still have to sit through all the barely adequate to mediocre actresses who play Victoria, Lily, Daisy and Abby.  But hey, Eden Riegel’s available so let’s jettison arguably one of the more interesting actresses on the show(certainly the hottest) and bring ER on to fill a spot that DOESN’T NEED FILLING.  UGH.

    I agree with THEBEST. Remember when Bianca found out Reese kissed Zach and ripped her a new one. Eden was amazing in those scenes and I see her bringing that type of fire to the role of Heather. I am biased because of my love for her, but I think she’s going to surprise some of the naysayers.

    Well if she going to knock it out of the ball park…I hope she changes her apperance and not look so homemade like she did on AMC.  I hope she get some new hair color, gain some weight, and show her boobs a little, and do the damn thing…

    Vail version was hot showin boobs, and havin a little attitude… I like that, and hope your girl Eden do the same… I’m not an AMC watcher or fan, but drop by sometime and she was boring for me, but I hope she’s good as you all say!

    They dont need to sign a TIRED VETERAN … they need to sign a hugely popular STARLET… BIANCA is in her mid-late 20′s to this role… AND THEY NEED TO DO IT FARELY SOON..

    Sign the star and bring on Tamara Braun for 6 Months to enter her in…

    LOVE that BAM is on Y&R. I havent watched Y&R for years but now that Liz & Eden are on I will definately be watching every day. What a freakin BURN on AMC that they lost both girls. AMC screwed us all over but i’m super excited that my girls are on Y&R (Yes i just found out Liz has been on for 2 years. Havent had time for soaps recently). I have 2 years worth of Chloe to catch up on but I will enjoy every minute. Liz is so worth it :) I admit though if AMC hired both of them back as BAM at some point, they will be back in my good graces :)
    LOVE Liz
    LOVE Eden
