I Literally Do Not Understand What These Words Mean
Not to be completely fifth grade, but...is it opposite day? Because Time Out New York did an article about Reese and Bianca's farce of a wedding complete with gushing quotes from Eden Riegel and Julie Hannan Carruthers and there is just a staggering disconnect between their words and, like, real life.
“I was like, lesbian wedding? Sign me up!” she says. “Given that this is a big issue right now, I wanted to show people a healthy same-sex relationship.”
Yes! I, too, would like to see a healthy same-sex relationship. Please let me know which television program is currently featuring one and I will make sure to tune in.
The actress, who recently got married to a man in real life, says that All My Children wooed her back—albeit temporarily—with a story line that would finally allow Bianca to have a true relationship.
Ah, a true relationship. As opposed to the kind of sham relationships some soap characters have where the two people involved don't know each other AT ALL, one of them suspects the other of having feelings for a man and, oh, yeah, the other one does have feelings for a man. Oh, wait...
Carruthers, who joined the show’s staff right after Bianca’s first same-sex kiss, says their approach has evolved. “They made a big deal of it then,” she says. “But now we’re just using the same parameters as we do for the straight couples, and I think we’ve done it tastefully.”
What the hell planet are you on, JHC? Because the only way that last sentence could be more patently untrue is if she had said, "and I think we've done it well".
In case my constant AMC posts comprised at least 75% of bitching about this storyline haven't told you, I LOATHE this clusterfuck of a "story". I hate the fact that Bianca has become such a mess, I hate the fact that Reese exists and, most of all, I hate the fact that AMC is proud of this, so proud that they pat themselves on the back in the press for being awesome and ground-breaking and revolutionary, when, in reality, they are none of those things and this entire lesbian storyline is a convoluted, poorly written joke.
