‘All My Children’ Lesbian Returns

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Susan Lucci’s fictional lesbian daughter, Bianca Montgomery, caused quite a stir when she left the cast of All My Children two years ago – and now tongues are wagging about her return to the ABC soap.

Eden Riegel made soap opera history when her character came out in 2000, then was written out by sending Bianca to Paris in 2004, and now she’s returning to the series starting October 11.

Riegel says she couldn’t be more excited and has received nothing but positive feedback from viewers about her role’s role as a gay icon.

Playing such a memorable, groundbreaking character is still part of life for Riegel, who says she still gets stopped on the street frequently by people who say, “Wait a minute – you’re not in Paris.”

Says Riegel: “I think it’s delivered with a wink – I hope it is.”

She says people’s concern for her return to the show is as flattering as knowing that she has helped a lot of young people that might have been struggling with their own sexuality.
