Soap fans are jumping for joy with this late breaking news this afternoon reported by Deadline.com!  Daytime Emmy winner and beloved favorite Eden Riegel is returning to the role that made her “soapfamous” that of Erica Kane’s daughter, Bianca Montgomery for Prospect Park’s All My Children revival!

According to the Deadline this afternoon, “Riegel will do a cameo guest arc” on the online series! Will Bianca be back to help her young SORAS’d daughter Miranda?

Eden Riegel also posted a quick message to her fans on her facebook page just a few moments ago stating, “Guess the cat’s out of the bag! So thrilled to be returning to All My Children in its next incarnation!”

Riegel, who has been busy with other projects, and was most recently seen on daytime on The Young and the Restless as Heather Stevens, is coming home to Pine Valley!  But if it works out, could Prospect Park get Eden to participate more full-time?  We shall see!

    Glad she is returning! I liked her as Bianca. She and Zach Slater (TK) were very good together as they came to terms/friendship that Miranda was his brother’s child.

    The story line that Ms. Riegel played with Susan Lucci was not only soap opera history but an important moment in pop culture. It smashed down doors for the LBGT community so wide they could never be closed again. In the hands of lessor acrtress’, it could have been a failure. Can’t wait to see Bianca Montgomery in Pine Valley!

    To be quite honest, I’m not surprised nor happy by this casting decision. I’ve never been a big fan of Eden’s acting and found her Bianca to be immature and whiney. Christina Bennett Lind was a much better Bianca, and hope she returns as the rightful actress for the job!

    Until then, I won’t accept any other actress portraying the role.

    I always liked Eden as Bianca. BUT when I saw Christina’s performance…I just adored her right from the beginning. I was SO hoping they would post news about her returning and to be with Marissa (can’t remember the last actress that played her). I want the Minx storyline to continue…they were so cute together! =)

    Marissa was portrayed by Sarah Glendening, who is currently pregnant, so I’m sure they won’t be able to get her back until after she’s had her baby.

    CBL just was Bianca. She embodied everything Bianca should and could be. I hope they bring her back once the series is off the ground and CBL can commit to it.

    Will you just close your eyes while she’s on?

    No. I will fast-forward through her scenes, like I always did when she was on ABC.

    I, too, was hoping for Christina Bennett Lind to return as Bianca, and Sarah Glendening as Marissa. Bianca as Erica’s daughter is an integral core character. If Eden’s only going to be doing a guest spot, I don’t know if it’s going to be as interesting for me. Yes, I’m going to enjoy seeing Dixie again, as well as some others, but AMC is not as big a draw for me that OLTL is – even without LGBT characters.

    I had only returned to AMC in the last few months it aired (somewhere around Feb 2010), and the building up of the Bianca/Marissa friendship into relationship. And aside from Bianca & Maggie years ago, Marissa is the first girl I’ve enjoyed seeing Bianca with. CBL portrayed a much grown up version of Bianca, IMO.

    The problem with AMC was that they brought back Lorraine Broderick around February, when it was too late to save the show. Once Lorraine got back at the helm, the series was amazing. But by then, it was too late for it all.

    CBL and SG need to return as Bianca and Marissa, one of the relationships I most want to see on the new reboot. Their chemistry was undeniable.

    Would love to have her back full time! I liked her with Reese the best. Never cared for her with Marissa. Never cared for any of the recasts.

    Watch out, Miranda will be just like Erica, like she was when she was a teen. Hello her Gram is Erica Kane, her aunt is Kendall Hart. Her Mother is a Lesbian and her late dad was a Rapist. Her Uncle Zack, fathered her sister! Issues!

    This is to the Person that said they just Watched the Last Few Months and it was February 2010. No, I think you Meant February 2011. All My Children Went off the Air in September 2011. Stuart was Killed in May 2009 until Stuart Turned Up Alive at the End of All My Children. Palmer Died on the Show in May of 2010. Jody

    The more the merrier!! With each returning member of the AMC family the more wonderfully exciting things become. I think most fans will agree that no matter where these actors go, be it another television series, project, etc., they will never be appreciated and loved to the degree with which they are by such devoted fans as ourselves!! Motion pictures stars , regardless of how many Oscars they have adorning their shelves, can never compare to the talent and versatility our wonderful soap stars possess! How seriously hard they work and with such professional dedication, is certainly appreciated and admired by we, as fans. I really don’t think they can even comprehend how much they have truly been missed and the degree of esteem with which we hold each and every one of them. They have literally become a part of our families and we feel such a sincere debt of gratitude to each and every former resident of Pine Valley who has made the decision to return home. We welcome each and every one of them back with open
    arms!!!!
    Wow, if I could say one thing to everyone involved with working so tirelessly on our behalf, it would be “Bring on the Magic!” We are here waiting with much anticipation and sincere gratitude to all of you who are a part of giving us back our much loved show! To the all the outstanding actors……and that means all of you, know that you have been such a huge part of our daily lives and that, by no means, refers that we all need to “Get a Life,” as so many who haven’t had the good fortune to become acquainted with our Pine Valley family might, and no doubt, be only too quick to say, I say …..”Give it a try, you too, will be hooked.”
    Thank you, Prospect Park for recognizing and fulfilling the dreams of so many faithful and loyal fans. We salute you!!!!!!!

    Yeah!!!!! It’s Absolutely Amazing!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!

    I too enjoyed Bianca and Marissa’s chemistry with Sarah and Christina. I thought Eden WAS Bianca in her younger days. But Christina brought a maturity yet kept that naïveté that Bianca holds to me.
    BUT, regardless, this is wonderful news for AMC and for hardcore Eden fans! Who knows, perhaps Eden will surprise me and blow this version of Bianca out of the water.
    I have a funny feeling they probably have a few other major characters already lined up that they’re going to spring on us last minute just to keep us anticipation up until the show airs.
    Def excited at least two of the Kane women are going to be apart of this. Can’t WAIT until they’re able to work out something with Alicia.

    I think she (Eden) was the stronger Bianca, with no offense intended towards the actress who briefly played the role for about a year or so, Christine Bennett Lind – Christine did as good a job as anyone could in assuming a role strongly associated with another actress but somehow her interpretation of Bianca, to me, wasn’t that interesting but maybe that was the fault of the writers.
    Surely, the first actress to portray Babe Chandler was far superior than the actress who took over that role – who knows, Babe might still be alive thanks to the twisted Dr. David Hayward -
