I’m going to start a weekly thing in The Picture of the Week in which I’ll post a picture from the gallery and anyone who wants to discuss it can. I’ll do it on every Sunday, but I’ll post the picture I am tonight and then choose one for next week on Sunday. Okay for this week I’m choosing this one:

Tamara Braun and Thorsten Kaye from the ABC soap opera ALL MY CHILDREN. Braun played the part of Reese Williams and Kaye the part of Zach Slater. This image is from 12/09/2008 in which Reese tried to comfort Zach during the time his wife, Kendall (Alicia Minshew) was in a coma after a freak storm swept through Pine Valley.

The photo above is from 12/09/2008 where Reese tried to comfort Zach after the freak storm that swept through Pine Valley leaving Kendall (Alicia Minshew) in a coma and fighting for her life.

For me I’d have to say it’s the sense of parity between both Tamara and Thorsten. I loved their chemistry. I know the chemistry was supposed to be between Reese and Bianca (Eden Riegel) but I just adored the way both Tamara and Thorsten just keyed into each others rhythms. I also loved that Tamara was acting with someone who was her equal. I came to love Thorsten through his scenes with Tamara. So feel free to comment.

I also know the site has been down for most of the day. Apparently my host has been performing maintenance on their servers and it was necessary to deactivate those sites on those servers. Everything is back up and running. Thank the gods for that.



I’ve been pulling together the 2011 press section. With the news of Tamara’s return to daytime, I really wanted to get the articles I’d collected so far this year typed out and put into the press section. Most of the articles deal with Tamara’s decision to not return to ALL MY CHILDREN as Reese Williams. If I may insert my jounalistic freedom of speech here, I’d have to say for the most part the new scribes for AMC are a little condescending of Tamara and the character of Reese. It’s as if they’re trying to make like she never existed. One article’s title is very much suspect: Bianca: Out With The Old, In With The Who?. As if Reese is ‘old’ per se. My main gripe is that no one has addressed the shoddy treatment she received at the hands of ABC and AMC while she was there. She signed up for one role and was handed another. It’s as if Tamara and by extension Eden Riegel’s decisions not to return are out of spite and not artistic integrity, not to forget that both were treated badly and promised something that didn’t come to fruition. Does Brian Frons and Julie Hannan Carruthers wonder why Eden signed onto THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and Tamara is returning to DAYS OF OUR LIVES? Instead, they write Bianca as some sort of vacuous, unfeeling twit. Here would have been a great shattering moment for both Her Kendallness and NotBinks: When Thorsten Kaye refused to move west with AMC and it was decided that Zach was going to be killed off…why not have Zach die going to get Reese and have the plane crash with the both of them aboard. That way AMC has the ability to not undo the first gay marriage on television and keep Reese as the loving mate she was to the real Bianca. I have to wonder how Tamara feels about how coldly these writers are treating her character?

Editorial over. There are quite a few articles in the press section for 2011. The scans, as always, are linked through the article to the gallery.



Not only is this the first day of a new year, but it is also Eden Riegel’s birthday. I’m sure all Tamara’s fans wish the mom-to-be and Reese Williams’ lady love a fantastic day and hope that Eden has a great day with Andrew (hubby and daddy-to-be) and Riley (puppy-brother-to-be) a great day. Eden, you deserve it. I also want to say that I’m hoping that Heather (Eden’s character on The Young & The Restless) and Ronan (Jeff Branson) really make it. They shine as a couple and I hope TPTB at the Y&R don’t screw up with this one. They probably will, but I can hope can’t I?

Don’t forget to check out my site for Tamara’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES co-star, Stephen Nichols @ RENEGADE ~ STEPHEN NICHOLS ONLINE. The reason for the plug? Stephen is on the same show as Eden Riegel. Ironic that both of Tamara’s ex on-screen loves are on the same show. Of course on DOOL, Tamara played Ava Vitali, the role in which she won her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress on a Daytime Soap Opera. Now all we need is for Tamara to show up on Y&R as a love interest for both Tucker McCall (Stephen’s character) and Heather Stevens (Eden’s character on the show). Ronan and Ashely (Eileen Davidson) who? Just kidding………
