 Thank you, Dan J Kroll, for inviting us to be part of this historic event! Thank you Eden and Chrissie for being your sweet, generous, fun selves and a BIG thank you to the surprise guests!

Oh yes, there were surprises!  There was talk of "gelatinous goo."  Y'know what? You should really just listen for yourself!

Biancapalooza Countdown * Can We Get -- Oh Never Mind!

Question #31

for Eden & Tamara:

We were going to ask you to return our Straight Cards, but then we re-watched this and ... 

Oh, never mind. Just keep the damn things.   
(Besides, if you returned them, Chrissie & Sarah would claim them and we'd be right back where we started.... Behold the Power of Bianca!)

Biancapalooza Countdown * The Question Ellen Has Been Dying to Ask!

Question #30

for Eden & Chrissie:

It seems that Bianca is a beast in the bedroom, considering all the straight girls she's bagged. Is this a Kane thing? Or simply the power of Bianca?

Biancapalooza Countdown * Smackdown!

Question #29

for Eden:

Was this moment as emotionally and physically satisfying as it looks? 
(And, do you secretly enjoy the opportunity to smack the shit out of someone as part of an average work day?)

Biancapalooza Countdown * The Write Stuff

Question #28
for Eden & Chrissie:

We like to share the love, and so we are going to present a few questions from a couple of our wonderful, kick-ass Twitter followers:

Twitter Question from @Aud22

From Audra:
What was your defining moment while playing Bianca?

* * *
Twitter Question from @Gindiesele34

 From Ginny:
What story/subject would they write about if they had the opportunity to do so on a soap opera?

Biancapalooza Countdown * Double Trouble

Question #27

for Chrissie:

Christina and Heather Lind
Are you as profoundly disappointed as we are that your real life, identical twin sister, Heather, is not going to get the opportunity to play Bianca's evil doppelganger?  

Who, of course, has assumed Bianca's identity, established herself as the CEO of Cambius Industries in Paris, taken up with Reese, fraudulently pretended to be Reese in order to divorce Bianca via Blackberry, all the while keeping poor Reese drunk on fine Cabernet and convincing her that both their daughters perished in a freak bunny slope skiing accident at their chalet in Switzerland?  Only to be found out by overly inquisitive, ace lawyer Marissa, leading to an epic confrontation and poor Bianca ultimately stuck with two beautiful women deeply, truly and madly in love with her?

Sarah Glendening
Tamara Braun

Now that would have been one freaking epic storyline, don't ya think?

Biancapalooza Countdown * Baby, It's You

Question #26

for Eden:

You had the honor of giving birth twice on screen.  Is real childbirth sort of anti-climatic after what Bianca went through?

Eden Riegel with her son, Jack Oscar Miller.

Jack is 100%  adorable, but ... is he a little boring compared to Miranda and Gabrielle? C'mon -- he wasn't born during a tornado, hasn't survived a helicopter crash only to be kidnapped, nor has he miraculously awakened you from a coma at Christmas time. 
We're just sayin' .... the boy has some catching up to do!

Biancapalooza Countdown * Have You Ever . . . ?

Have you ever heard of the term "fanwank"?

Biancapalooza Countdown * The Day We All Became Minxbians

Question #23

for Chrissie:

Everybody knows we are the biggest Bianca/Reese fans on the planet, but did you know the moment we became Minxbians too?

Sarah Glendening as Marissa
   C'mon! Who can resist that sweet, befuddled face?
Not us! And apparently, not Binks....

What was it like to tape the scene where Bianca confesses her "attraction" to Marissa and Binks has to watch the explosion of conflicted emotions rush across her best friend's face?

(BTW, You gals were all kinds of awesome in these scenes.)

Biancapalooza Countdown * ERICA F***ING KANE

Question #22

So, what's it like to work with one of the most famous, fabulous, fantastic women in all of television history? 

And, what sort of secrets does she keep hidden in her hair?
Susan Lucci

Biancapalooza Countdown * Sister Act!

Question #20

for Eden & Chrissie:

Is it possible the single most important relationship in Bianca's life was actually with ... Kendall?

          ❤ ❤ ❤ KINKS 4EVER ! ❤ ❤ ❤

# # #

Biancapalooza Countdown * The Book of Love

 Question #19

for Eden & Chrissie:

Both Kendall and Erica have had their own books published, why not Binks? Don't you think, considering all Bianca has experienced, that her  memoir would be an instant bestseller?

(We do!)

Biancapalooza Countdown * We're Going to the Chapel

Question # 18

for Eden:

What was it like for you and Tamara to be part of a groundbreaking and breathtakingly beautiful wedding, and did you get any special, 'expert' advice from Susan Lucci?

Bianca & Reese's Wedding

Biancapalooza Countdown * Pride & Prejudice

Question #17

for Eden & Chrissie:

We are so very  proud of you for being outspoken supporters of gay rights and gay marriage and gay love and all that is gloriously Gay in any way....

Eden Riegel NOH8
Sarah Glendening + Christina Lind = MINX


 Does the nonsense, like what is happening in Tennessee*, ever make you insanely, deeply, disturbingly sad and angry?

And doesn't it remind you of the importance and relevance and power of Bianca's story?

The Family Action Council of Tennessee said in a newsletter emailed to supporters Tuesday that one of its top priorities for 2012 will be passage of legislation that changes the state’s anti-bullying law “to make sure it protects the religious liberty and free speech rights of students who want to express their views on homosexuality."

Biancapalooza Countdown * Happy Birthday Eden!

Question #13

for Eden Red Sonja Jane Riegel

Have you forgiven us yet for suggesting that an appropriate birthday gift for you would be a chain mail bikini in the style of Red Sonja, She Devil With a Sword?

Gee, we hope so!
(For those of you who are especially observant- Why, yes! Yes we did choose a Red Sonja cover with a Pirate trying to force our heroine to walk the plank. A very astute comparison to the way Pratt treated Eden, don't you think? Kudos to you for noticing!)

(For those of you who don't remember the original Red Sonja reference, watch this.)


(with or without a chain mail bikini)
xoxo, Ellen & Portia
