BIANCA'S A LESBIAN, ALL MY CHILDREN
Keeping a soap storyline secret is no easy feat these days, and it was no different for ALL MY CHILDREN when word that Bianca is a lesbian was leaked to the press. But knowing what was to come in no way spoiled this much-anticipated tale. At every turn, the soap made sly references to exactly what was troubling Bianca. Knowing the secret only enhanced scenes like the one when Bianca squirmed her way out of a date with a high school heartthrob. The reveal happened on Halloween, when Bianca went into a lesbian bar - and came out of the closet. Now the hook is watching Bianca come to terms with her identity, while Erica tries to get through to her "moody" teen, yammering on about boy trouble in a misguided effort to relate. At her wits' end, La Kane railed in vain, "I need to know what's going on, and I need to know now. Do you understand me?" Now that Erica's inching closer to the truth, the question is: Will she understand? Bravo to AMC for not using a story leak as an excuse to back out of this important tale.
