While ABC, and other media outlets were giving All My Children some press coverage because of the controversial storyline of Same Sex Marriage between Erica Kane’s (Susan Lucci) daughter Bianca (Eden Riegel) with Reese (Tamara Braun), some LOYAL All My Children viewers, including myself couldn’t care less about it. Someone who doesn’t watch All My Children might find this event monumental and a progress in TV history, but people who actually watch the show considers it a waste of time. Let me tell you why.
Because behind all this supposed oh-so-monumental event is a disaster storyline that’s been expected to blow up before they even said “I do”. The drama that has been going on months before the wedding day pretty much sealed the fate of this same sex marriage.
A. Bianca and Reese decided to use Zach as their sperm donor. Zach happens to be Bianca’s brother-in-law.
B. Kendall, Bianca’s sister, Zach’s wife was in a coma for at least 3 months.
C. Within that 3 months that Kendall was in a coma, Bianca found out that her fiancee Reese has actually been engaged with a MAN before.
D. Erica Kane never warmed up to Reese.
E. Reese and Zach has developed a “deep friendship”. Bianca suspected it was more than friendship that she felt the need to test them.
G. The Kendall we know and loved did not take this news lightly. She wants Bianca and Reese out of town. Zach, Bianca, and Reese all feel betrayed by Kendall’s reaction. In their world, Kendall was supposed to jump up and down, celebrate, give them a huge party, and welcome with open arms the fact that her new niece is her sister and husband’s child.
H. No matter how many times Zach and Reese denied it, they’ve developed something more than friendship. They kissed in the church the night before the Same Sex Marriage was about to happen. It wasn’t just a “congratulations to your upcoming wedding to my sister-in-law who happens to be my Baby’sMama“. It was “oh my gosh I’m about to explode if I don’t give you a hot exploding kiss right about now” kind of kiss. And it lasted more than 2 minutes.
And these are the reasons why I do not care about this Same Sex Marriage storyline. All My Children writers wanted this to be monumental but they ruined it the minute they started showing all the aforementioned backdrop stories. It’s hard to invest on something that’s already been tainted before it even started.
This supposed “groundbreaking” event on daytime that the media is talking about doesn’t mean a damn thing because this Same Sex Marriage started and will end in nothing.
Sure, this is Soaps, of course it’s all going to be drama. My point is, they want us to care about this HUGE event on Daytime. It has never been done before. Well guess what, because of that maybe they should’ve made this marriage meaningful. No drama, no babydrama, no Lesbian hooking up with a GUY who happens to be married, and no other deceptions in between. It’s the first ever same sex marriage on daytime. It’s also the first same sex marriage where one of the brides (Reese) was kissing a MAN the night before the wedding. The lesbian bride (Bianca) tells her probably bi-sexual bride (Reese) to stay away from her 4 days after their “groundbreaking” same sex marriage.
Well thanks, but no thanks.
