Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 2, 2010 Congrats! Time to quit Y&R and focus on being a Mom!! Please??? Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 November 2, 2010 Eden Riegel is NOT a bad actress, folks. Anyone who saw her work on AMC can clearly attest to that fact. She just doesn’t appear to be very versatile as an actress. Some actresses can pull off ANYTHING, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE…..and others can’t!! I wish she were back on AMC as Bianca, but I wish her the best of luck with her growing family. I’m still a fan, but her version of Heather does NOTHING for me!!! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 2, 2010 She’s AWFUL as Heather. Never watched AMC, never will, but from watching her on Y&R, she’s so, so, so bad. Cringeworthy! The absolute worst casting choice this show has made since Maria Bell took over, bar none. Looking forward to the maternity leave! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 November 2, 2010 A-Crane, I disagree. The worst casting choice made since Maria Bell took over would HAVE to be Yvonne Zimaless!!! :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp Just my humble opinion. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 2, 2010 I can’t agree because Daisy isn’t a major character nor did Zima replace someone who was really good in the role, so her mediocrity is acceptable and can be tolerated. Eden is just not up to snuff as Heather. Log in to Reply babyc November 2, 2010 I like Eden as Heather. The writing is awful for her, and most of the other characters, but at least this Heather was emotions. I always hated how cold Heather was before, it was ice princess cold, it was detached sociopath cold. God, how I hated her! Log in to Reply Smitty November 2, 2010 Congrats Eden and Andrew! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 2, 2010 It’s not the writing, babyc, it’s Eden. She’s like a little girl playing dress-up. It’s sickening. Vail Bloom OWNED this role and that’s why Eden is failing so badly. Bring back Vail Bloom!!! Log in to Reply SillyPhylly November 2, 2010 Congratulations Eden and Andrew! You will make wonderful parents and I’m so happy for you! Ignore most of the comments here. For some, everything has to be turned into a bitch session. God forbid this can’t e just about the wonderful news. Log in to Reply babyc November 3, 2010 Seriously? Seriously, AlistairCrane? VB didn’t own that role, at all. I had more trouble buying her as ADA than I have buying ER as ADA. She was getting better at the end of her run and that was mostly because she bitched at Adam and Rafe and it was awesome! But beyond that… No, at all. And yes, the writing is pretty bad for this, and most of the characters. There is little consistency with their actions and what they say. My God, sometimes I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! I remember how nobody liked Heather or VB as Heather, she get’s recasted and suddenly she’s God’s gift to soaps? Log in to Reply wiggum November 3, 2010 congrats! I agree she isn’t clicking as Heather but she should have been the Mac recast. I would suspend disbelief if Eden went off on materity and came back as Mac instead of Heather Log in to Reply east.west November 3, 2010 The backhanded compliments kills me! Congrats to the couple and CarlyCfan you a mess :p! Log in to Reply TV Gord November 3, 2010 I smell a spinoff: Imaginary Fetuses! Log in to Reply Scout November 3, 2010 ER as Heather looks like she should be running for class president, not for DA! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 I’m looking forward to the maternity leave too—hopefully it’s longer than Amelia Heinous’ two-second maternity leave earlier this year!

The only thing that she OWNED was a can of hair spray. Log in to Reply CarlyCfan November 3, 2010 Congrats. I’m really going to enjoy the maternity leave i hope she enjoys it too. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 November 3, 2010 A-Crane, Have you ever considered starting a fan club for Vail Bloom, since you appear to be the BIGGEST Vail Bloom fan that I have EVER seen in my life??? Seriously, I have NEVER heard anyone sing that girl’s praises as much as you do. And ditto for Thom Bierdz…… Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 I loved her and was cheering for Vail all along. I’m just happy that people who supposedly didn’t like her while she was in the role started appreciating her when Eden took over. Vail OWNED that role. She WAS Heather, mind, body, and soul. Eden is a walking caricature, Minnie Mouse playing DA. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe November 3, 2010 Wow this is a post about this woman’s pregnancy which is to be a happy time in her life and instead its all about the joys of Vail Bloom’s acting… SMDH……….. Log in to Reply Smitty November 3, 2010 I like Eden as Heather. I admit at first she didn’t work for me, but I think now as I have said for months that she has made the role of Heather hers. She’s a great actress and I enjoy her…loving have her run for DA and having to use Victor’s money. Keep up the good work Eden! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 It’s a happy time for me too because it means MATERNITY LEAVE which means it gets Eden OFF my screen! Sorry, but not all of us saw her on AMC. We’ve only seen her horrible attempts at acting here on Y&R. Log in to Reply TV Gord November 3, 2010 Wow. I hope she’s not reading this. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 Eden’s an “actress”. If she can’t take criticism, she shouldn’t be in this line of work. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe November 3, 2010 Spoken like a true ABC exec! Your speaking more about her looks than work. You sure you don’t work for ABC daytime? *LMAO!* Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 There’s not much to say about her work. It’s simply awful. There are only so many different synonyms for “horrible”! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 I will say this: Her “blah” acting style would have made her a much better Mac recast, and they still could have played her off Chloe. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens November 3, 2010 Okay, Alistair Crane, that’s enough dissing actors looks. We have never permitted that on DC, and we are not about to start now. I am sure people will accuse me of bias and blah, blah, blah, but DC has never allowed comments about peoples looks other than discussing whether or not someone combed their hair. You have every right to criticize an actors ability to act (though your ready defense and praise of Thom Bierdz’s "acting" amid all your rampant bashing of Eden and Laura Stone takes care of that), but if you continue making personal attacks about peoples looks, your posts will be zapped. Log in to Reply TV Gord November 3, 2010 And thanks for zapping that post! THAT’S why I wrote I hope she’s not reading this, NOT because of people’s opinions of her acting ability. I’m sure that would roll right off her back. Going after someone’s looks is just low. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 Laura Stone is not talented and I’m not sure why people think she is. She couldn’t pull off the awful dialogue given to her when Skye and Adam were in South America, and she is not convincing as an HBIC in Genoa City. Thom Bierdz, meanwhile, is perfectly fine in a role that doesn’t require the talents of Ian McKellan or Sean Penn. He’s certainly better than the vapid Christel Khalil or Amelia Heinous, or the twitchy, mugging Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford. As for Eden, I’ve discussed her “abilities” to death. I’ve made it clear why she is no good as Heather and never will be. Please go back to AMC, Eden….you are not welcome here! Log in to Reply Dariclone November 3, 2010 Time to bring this discussion back to what it should be about: Eden and her hubby. They look so happy together, I’m glad for them. I just hope she doesn’t give up acting! Log in to Reply babyc November 3, 2010 I hope not! She’s one of my favorite actresses on daytime. That girl can move me to tears so easily it’s a little embarrassing. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane November 3, 2010 babyc, she moves me to tears as well…everytime she appears on screen as Heather! Log in to Reply babyc November 3, 2010 Oh AlistairCrane, I know what you mean, she is so talented it makes me want to cry too. We are lucky to be able to watch her on our screen. I knew some day you and I would see eye for eye, and here it is, our love for ER has brought us closer. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott November 4, 2010 I have never found it necessary to throw insults about how an actor or actress looks. There are two actors (one on CBS and one on ABC) who have such serious baggage under their eyes I am shocked they are allowed to go on air like that. Seriously. But do I mention them on here and how bad that looks? No. That’s just low-class and tacky and so childish hiding behind a computer to do so. And these two gents’ names? I’ll never tell… Log in to Reply marknsprmo November 4, 2010 I have noticed something funny about daytime soap viewers and actresses that have played lesbians. They become godesses! CC from GL couldn’t get arrested by a fan until she fell for a woman. Eden is the patron saint of AMC. Yet obviously her “talent” didn’t follow her to Y&R. Maybe it is some sort of lesbian hypnosis that makes everyone fall for these actresses. Because honestly, I have watched CC “act” for a couple of decades now and NEVER did I think much of her abilities. I never liked Carly and only thought she was maybe competent as Olivia because the character was Supposed to be unlikable and I didn’t like her. Suddenly and VERY suddenly, she is like the best actress EVER! As far as Eden playing a lesbian, the times I watched her, I was not convinced. It was like watching that old tired “ism” that she thought she was a lesbian to stick it to her mother that I used to get accused of when I was younger about my father. Only in her case, it seemed to actually fit. Because I was not buying that she was gay.

[/quote] You misinterpreted what I said. I weep because she’s so awful. I weep because I miss Vail Bloom as Heather so much! Log in to Reply babyc November 4, 2010 Tsk, tsk, AlistairCrane, taking back your words. I guess I understand, it’s just too much for you, but it’s okay, I know you love ER, maybe a little too much. It doesn’t matter, you and I know the truth. ;D Log in to Reply TV Gord November 4, 2010 I agree with babyc, Alistair. I’m not sure what you’re really trying to say. You’re being too subtle. ;-D Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
