Reese & Bianca Still Having An Impact Abroad

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: October 02, 2012

The social impact of the Reese and Bianca relationship is continuing to have an impact abroad. On a Dutch soap opera a brochure showed up featuring an image of Reese and Bianca at their 2009 groundbreaking nuptials. Here is what was said about the show and the featuring of the brochure:

AMC’s Bianca & Reese Pop Up On Dutch Soap GTST

ALL MY CHILDREN’s Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun) were seen on Dutch soap opera GOEDE TIJDEN SLECHTE TIJDEN on Friday, on a marriage equality brochure. GTST fan and We Love Soaps contributor Mark offers us a recap:

Nuran Baydar (played by Toprak Yalçiner) and Rik de Jong (played by Ferri Somogyi) have feelings for each other. But because Rik isn’t muslim Nuran feels like she can’t be in a relationship with him. Both of them have started dating other people and both of them are rushing into marriage. Rik with Yvon Terstal (played by Terence Schreurs) and Nuran with Bilal Demir (played by Sinan Eroglu). Especially that last marriage is doomed because Bilal is actually gay.

On Friday Nuran went to a bridal shop to try on her wedding dress. Rik saw her through the window and couldn’t resist to enter the shop. As an excuse he said he wanted to pick up some brochures for Yvon. He wasn’t really paying attention to those brochures because one of them was the one about gay marriage.

When I saw the episode I didn’t notice it was Bianca and Reese. I saw it today when the show uploaded it on their website. The show always does this with letters, cards and photos that are used in the episodes as props. It’s a fun extra for the fans.

click to view a clip from the show

The brochure itself talks about how gay marriage has been legal since 2001, but that there are still a few differences between gay couples and straight couples. Like when a couple has children. Only the biological parent is seen as a legal parent. The other parent has to adopt the child to become a legal parent.

SOURCE

Here are the front and back covers of the brochure, it’s all in Dutch with no translation.

 

I think it’s amazing that the Reese and Bianca story is still having an impact, particularly on the global discussion on Gay Rights Equality. It’s only too bad Chuck Pratt didn’t see it the way we did and the way the world saw it. I’m proud of both Tamara and Eden’s work and how they managed to make Reese and Bianca so valid in today’s global discussion on the rights of those who do not share equality on certain levels. The whole aspect of inequality in terms of the issue of children from a gay or lesbian couple where the other parent has to adopt the child(ren) from the union still needs some work. What is bothersome is that while surrogacy is needed in the issue of sperm/womb donor, there should be no separation between the aspect of parenting. In whatever union that is — in terms of two women or two men — they are parents. Once that decision is made to have a child, end of story. It’s no different than that of heterosexual couples.

Jumping off soap box now.

TAMARA OBSCURA || TAMARA LANDS GUEST SPOT ON “CASTLE”

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: August 30, 2012

So sorry I’ve been MIA, but my mom is currently transiting between my place after her hip operation July 09 to back home, plus going to physiotherapy to get back walking and doing things for herself. I hope you understand. One great thing is I have some news on another guest spot Tamara has upcoming. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tamara is due to do an episode in CASTLE‘s upcoming fifth season. More below the cut:

‘Castle’ Enlists Soap Veteran Tamara Braun for Sexy Stint (Exclusive)

She’ll guest star in the fifth episode of the ABC drama as a sexy Hamptons town council woman and the owner of local bar.

Tamara Braun guest stars on 'Castle' in season five episode five as sexy bar owner/counsel woman Natalia Roosevelt.

Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett’s (Stana Katic) romantic getaway to the Hamptons won’t be romantic for very long.

Soap opera veteran Tamara Braun has booked a guest-starring role on Castle’s upcoming fifth season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

Braun will play Natalia Roosevelt, a sexy bar owner and city council woman who was seen with the victim of the Hamptons’ first homicide investigation. She’ll appear in the fifth episode of the season.

The casting marks the latest in a line of guest roles for the Days of Our Lives Emmy winner. Braun recently was tapped to play Callie Thorne’s aggressive sister on USA Network’s Necessary Roughness.

She joins fellow season five guest star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, who will appear in the second episode of the season.

As promised, I have a couple of press additions for you. the first is an article Tamara did back in April 2012 from Soap Opera Digest where she discusses her magical time with preparing for her play Tennessee In The Summer, plus her meeting President and Michelle Obama at the White House, her attending the Kennedy Center Honors and the Grammys. She also talks with pride about her grandfather. The other article is from ABC Soaps In Depth from this past July where she talks solely about her role in the play. Enjoy.

TAMARA OBSCURA || GALLERY REORGANIZING DONE

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: August 12, 2012

I’ve completed the reorganizing of the gallery. It’s finally the way I’ve been wanting it for some time now. I hope it’s easier to access Tamara’s work in terms of finding whatever television show or film she was in. I still have just a little more tiding up within the various sections but by and large it’s done. While cleaning things up I realized I didn’t have some of Tamara’s television work in the gallery. I’ll be uploading those soon. I also have a couple of articles I want to get in there and in the press section. During the cleaning I also deleted a whole whack of files I really don’t want there any more. Some of those files were in the Arthouse section. I’ve decided to not keep those in the gallery, rather, I’ll be moving them to the main site in the Multimedia section. I’m going to be organizing that in the next few days so you’ll be able to find that stuff there. I also have deleted the video zip files. I’ve decided they are going to be added in the form of videos to the main media and soap site. I know there are some people who would like to download and view them on iPods and other iPhones, iPads, Smartphones and the like, but the media sites are viewable on these devices so you can watch them there. Another reason I did this was to free up space for Tamara’s upcoming role on NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. Given there are over 70,000 screencaps in there already, I needed to make the cut somewhere. That’s where I made the decision. I’m also considering deleting some of the files to replace with better quality versions of the screencaps or replacing them with files I received from Hurley when she handed her site’s content over to me. I’ll let you know what I decide. Thanks for understanding.

TAMARA OBSCURA || HOUSE CLEANING

Author: tamara obscura | Posted On: August 10, 2012

Yeesh, did I say ‘house cleaning’? I must either be in an alternate universe or insane. Yeah, I hate housework so sue me! Actually I’m going to be doing a major overhaul of the gallery. There is a lot of flotsam in there and it’s hugely disorganized I’m very unhappy. I’ve learned a lot about setting up galleries since my first installation of this website six loooooong years ago and I want to employ that set up for the gallery here. So this is going to entail a lot of moving and deleting as necessity calls. I don’t plan on taking the gallery off line, I know I’d have a full scale Tamara riot on my hands. Oh no! I will not face that. So please don’t be too alarmed if you see some things happening that might be considered hinky. I love hinky so that’s why I’m going to be doing this. The reason I’m doing this is to prepare for Tamara’s start on NECESSARY ROUGHNESS. I’m also in the process of trying to complete Tamara’s time on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Taylor and get the screencaps in the gallery and the clips in the soap media site. I’ve been too remiss in getting those done. So during this time please be patient. In the end it’ll be worth it. Another thing, the main site is going to be undergoing some minor touch ups. I want to add some things here that will bring it more into line with my other sites. With Christopher Meloni done his work on the HBO series TRUE BLOOD and Mitch Pileggi done on DALLAS until January, I’ve found I have a lot of time on my hands…well, almost. I’m still taking care of my mother who is still rehabbing from her hip operation but in between my duties for her and the regular stuff here at home, I want to get this site a little more organized. I hope you’ll like that in the end. For now, take care and be safe.
