Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (April 11, 2008)



Attention All My Children fans: Bianca and Maggie are hopping into the sack — and they want you to watch!

Yes, it’s true. The most beloved lesbian couple in daytime television history, Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Maggie (Elizabeth Hendrickson) will be joining our own Bridget McManus in an upcoming episode of her vlog, Brunch With Bridget.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with AMC, check out this clip of the first time the most popular queer girls in Pine Valley met:


Don’t you hate it when your girlfriend dies without telling you she has a twin sister, and then you run into that sister in a bar and you faint because you think it’s your dead girlfriend? Me too.

Riegel and Hendrickson know that many readers are staunch Bianca/Maggie advocates, so they’re inviting readers to send in questions for the vlog (questions that Bridget will no doubt pose to them while doing splits or cheers, or one of her many other bendy contortions for which she is rapidly becoming infamous).

If you have a question for Riegel or Hendrickson, post it in the comments section of this week’s BLWE column, and we’ll pass them along to Bridget. Stay tuned for the vlog, which will be posted on May 4.

To promote her new arts-and-crafts book, Crafty U, Rosie O’Donnell made an appearance on Good Morning America and spoke candidly with Diane Sawyer about a variety of topics, including Dancing With the Stars, Britney Spears, and beer.

Oh, all right, I admit it was more substantive than that. The two also talked about O’Donnell’s relationship with former View frenemy Elisabeth Hasselbeck, why Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama should join forces to “save democracy,” mental health, and the “no media” policy in her home. You can watch the interview in its entirety below:

It’s an interesting conversation, particularly when O’Donnell talks about not having television or computers in her home for the sake of her children. I especially like the part where Sawyer asks O’Donnell if she is “calmer and more more in control of herself.” That was a gutsy question! What if O’Donnell had said “no”?

And while we’re at it …


“I tried my best but it’s hard for me when I’m not the boss … There was people there telling me what to do. There was a little Republican who scared me.”
