In a brand new interview with Michael Logan of TV Guide Magazine, Daytime Emmy nominee Eden Riegel, yes, she is nominated in the “New Approaches” category for Imaginary Bitches, answers some questions about the convoluted Reese/Bianca same-sex story on All My Children, and especially about our favorite online parody, Pratt Falls. Here is a sampling of the interview below:
TV Guide: Speaking of your groupies, do you watch Pratt Falls?
Riegel: Ohhh, yes! Can you believe that show?
The two gals who write that series are scathingly funny. It’s terrific satire!
Riegel: It’s so brilliant. And so perfect. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.
They really skewered and roasted AMC head writer Chuck Pratt for that interview he gave me in TV Guide Magazine—the one where he blamed the Reese-Bianca storyline mess on you for leaving the soap earlier than expected.
Riegel: I know. The Bianca fans really took that to the nth degree. They are so protective. Everything happened so fast [with the AMC story] that there wasn’t time to really build to the idea that Reese would make out with Zach the night before the wedding. A lot of people found that unforgivable. It was the first gay wedding. People wanted it to be pure. She was making out with Bianca’s brother-in-law!
Whose sperm Bianca used to make a baby and didn’t tell her sister, Kendall, who happened to be Zach’s wife! Let’s face facts: Bianca was no saint in that situation, either.
Riegel: And then, during the wedding, Greenlee died a horrible death. [Laughs] Oh, the whole thing was a disaster.
