Groundbreaking Nuptials on Daytime TV


I've been a fan of the soap opera All My Children since I was a little girl and I still watch (or should I say DVR) daily.  And so, I'm really proud that this afternoon as well as on February 16th, All My Children will feature the first same-sex marriage in daytime television history.

Just in time for Valentine's Day weekend, the characters Reese (Tamara Braun) and Bianca (Eden Riegel) will tie the knot.  Riegel, who plays the famous Erica Kane's daughter, has been a trailblazer for several years in this respect, successfully playing a proud lesbian and being involved in the milestone "first gay kiss" on daytime TV.  All My Children has not been afraid to push the envelope at all, which is quite admirable.  Go ABC!

Be sure to tune in, 1PM EST.
