“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away …..”I know, you’re expecting to hear the opening fanfare from the excellent John Williams conducted score to one of the six “Star Wars” films (whether that be original or prequels) but I’m only just now getting to the backlog. My apologies for having been gone. I know I posted last week I’d have an update, but, but, but….Ah, I just couldn’t get to it before now. I have no ‘my dog ate my homework’ excuses this time. Problem has been my arm. The doctor thinks I may have carpel tunnel considering that I have numbness in my left arm and into my thumb, so typing’s been a bit of a problem. Also, I’ve been getting used to my brand spanking new computer. Lappy (my old computer) had Windows XP SP3 on it. This new one (as yet unnamed


I wanted to share this with Tamara’s fans. In the latest edidion of Soap Opera Digest, there is a letter from a fan who had this to say:GIRL POWERWords cannot express how amazed I’ve been by ALL MY CHILDREN’s Eden Riegel (Bianca) and Tamara Braun (Reese) recently. The range of emotions from both actresses from anger to hurt, is what makes their story real and relatable to the audience. I applaud AMC for making the effort to showcase that Bianca and Reese are not a picture-perfect couple because they, too, have issues that still need to be addressed to solidify their loving relationship. TJ, New YorkHad to share this with you. It seems Tamara and Eden are affecting how people view this storyline. I loved what TJ had to say about how real the actresses are making the story. I couldn’t agree more. Alongside all the other stuff they’re dealing with in terms of Zach’s brooding over Kendall’s condition and the whole thing surrounding Josh’s holding Reese hostage, I’d say that that word ‘real’ has been used many, many, many times in most of the positive things I’ve read both in print an online, speaks to the fact that lesbian/gay love is just as normal as hetero loe. Kudos to Tamara and Eden for showing us that. On another note, I thought I’d share with you what Tamara said about the upcoming spoiler about Zach catching Reese in the altogether. In the same SOD issue, Tamara said this: “There’s nothing between them but a close friendship.”That should put all those ugly things circulating on the internet about Reese being ‘bi-sexual/after Zach/after Kendall’s life/being a woman named Heather/a secret member of the Cambias family/a secret scheamer’ and any other number of silly comments to rest. Thanks Tamara for keeping to your guns and continuing to be true to both yours and Reese’s hearts.
