Eden Riegel Takes High Road With AMC's Chuck Pratt
Showing what a consummate professional she is, former All My Children alum Eden Riegel (Bianca) discusses with TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan the blame game AMC scribe Chuck Pratt cast upon her with Bianca and Reese's (Tamara Braun) dud romance storyline.
Michael Logan: Speaking of your groupies, do you watch Pratt Falls?
Eden Riegel: Ohhh, yes! Can you believe that show?
The two gals who write that series are scathingly funny. It’s terrific satire!
It’s so brilliant. And so perfect. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.
They really skewered and roasted AMC head writer Chuck Pratt for that interview he gave me in TV Guide Magazine—the one where he blamed the Reese-Bianca storyline mess on you for leaving the soap earlier than expected.
I know. The Bianca fans really took that to the nth degree. They are so protective. Everything happened so fast [with the AMC story] that there wasn’t time to really build to the idea that Reese would make out with Zach the night before the wedding. A lot of people found that unforgivable. It was the first gay wedding. People wanted it to be pure. She was making out with Bianca’s brother-in-law!
