the same chick who hooks me up with tidbits about my wife, also wanted to share something else she felt the class might enjoy. so in this post, i welcome you to what i've decided to call: "Shaye's Soapbox" :-) (click on her pic to visit Shaye on myspace)
Maggie to return to "All My Children" this monday, jan 15th!
"Maggie is the tiny little cutie (she's only 5'1") that was/has been Bianca's 'straight' best friend for years and years. They played the "will they, won't they" game forever. And then ran off to Paris together, as friends. Apparently that changed and they finally got together (off-screen, damn writers). Now Bianca is back in Pine Valley (has been for roughly five months), supposedly Maggie cheated. Monday Maggie is coming back to PV...
there are lots [of links] you should check out, but, these are the best (trying to sum up years)....

They've been through a LOT of shit: The death of Maggie's twin sister. Bianca wanting more than friendship. Maggie being "into guys". Bianca's rape and subsequent pregenancy. Maggie wanting to be with Bianca. Bianca being with Lena (the airport kiss lady). Bianca losing her baby. Maggie's abusive boyfriend. Losing their friendship cause of said boyfriend. Bianca being on her deathbed, twice. Bianca getting her baby back. Rebuilding their friendship. So, so much.
If you have more time check out The BAMChannel, on YouTube. They have a lot more clips and most of them are dated. Link: http://www.youtube.com/bamchannel.
drnik46 and seanpaune also have some more. drnik has the more recent clips of Bianca by herself in PV.
FYI: BAM = Bianca and Maggie and FAB = Frankie (Maggie's dead twin sister) and Bianca.
FAB happened before BAM. Frankie was just a plot device that was murdered by her aunt. Fans liked her so much that TPTB (the powers that be) brought Elizabeth Hendrickson back to play Maggie... and the rest is history. Bianca is played by Eden Riegel.
All My Children comes on 1pm EST on ABC.
Also, right now there is a serial killer running around. Bianca could be a target. She also had a one-night stand with a woman named Leslie, the night before Maggie is going to arrive. And currently there is a transgendered character by the name of Zarf/Zoe in love with Bianca. Which confused the hell outta Bianca cause she found herself attracted to a man, even though he believes he is a lesbian woman. This man also happens to be the number one suspect for all the murdering going on and a flamboyant rockstar."
UPDATE from the comments: "Hi, I'm the youtube user seanpaune:) drnik46, sidney24 and I (with a few others) have built a whole new website named BAM For Beginners
(www.bamforbeginners.com ) where we have organized all of the YouTube clips we could locate in to a chronological order. We have timelines, icons to use on websites, an instructional page to write to AMC/ABC on behalf of BAM...all sorts of stuff! If you are interested in getting up to speed before the 15th, we can certainly get you educated:)
Thanks for mentioning Maggie's return!"
