Eden Riegel on Pratt Falls, Bianca/Reese story and IB Emmy nom!

riegel-news.jpgIn 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.

I think its a shame that OLTL is concluding the Kish storyline. We see it every week on Modern Family w/ a baby to raise. And its o.k.? Why not on a soap? Its so much more interesting than Jessicas 100 personalities we put up with. And way better than watching Dorian pretend to be gay. I think the time has come to have a gay couple in the mix just like real life. It sadens me that this storyline is being cut out of a town where everyone has practically slept with each other as it is. I thought the gay couple raising a baby would of been a great thing to see and maybe give the show some stability especially in a town of bad decision makers. Oh well dreaming is free and of course since I liked Kish they are out. Life is a bitch! Such a step backwards for day time to pull the plug. They shouldve not even brought them into the show for, what was the point? They opened a door and then as us viewers got to really like these characters they decided to close it and enough said? What was the point? If this was the outcome, obviously it was too much for them to handle and they shouldnt of gone there? I think they need to continue on with it since they opened this up and follow through, and see where it leads. And if they dont have the confidence they should just give Jessica another personality and do the safe thing. They totally disappoint me if they cant handle throwing a little realism without getting cold feet. The writers are a bunch of chickens just worried about a little controversy, which is something the soaps should embrace.

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

Tamara Braun and Jennifer Bassey Filming New Motion Picture Comedy 'Kombucha Cure'

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
