ACTRESS EDEN RIEGEL IS NO ‘IMAGINARY BITCH’: OUT IMPACT’S REAL CONVERSATION WITH A VERY INVENTIVE ACTRESS
June 10, 2008 (New York, NY)—Actress Eden Riegel, best known for spearheading the way gays are portrayed on television, thanks to her revelatory work as Bianca on “All My Children,” recently sat down with Bambi Weavil of Out Impact to talk about the impact of her work and her latest project, a web series called “Imaginary Bitches.”
“Imaginary Bitches” is a 13-episode series that Riegel stars in and produces. “It’s a fresher, edgier ‘Sex and the City,’” said Riegel. “It’s about a girl and her girlfriends, but all of them are in serious relationships and she’s single, and feels left out. And
so she sort of deals with this situation by making up imaginary friends to talk to who unfortunately turn out to be serious bitches.” (“Imaginary Bitches” can be seen at http://youtube.com/imaginarybitches and its official homepage at http://imaginarybitches.com/.)
In the interview, Riegel talks about how Jack Black and Michael Cera influenced her decision to create the web series, who her favorite bitches are and who her dream guest stars would be in the webisodes and how theatre and daytime television are similar.
Of course, this being Out Impact, the interview wouldn’t be complete without discussing Bianca, a pioneer character for television, daytime or otherwise. Riegel discusses fan reaction to the character and her lovers, how it influenced others coming-out process and whether we will ever see Bianca, with or without Bianca, on “All My Children” again.
