ok so i have a small obseesion with soap operas, geesh
I blame my unhealthy soap opera addictions on my sixth grade year of school. I was "sick" for most of the year missing about 47 days. impressive i know, and i still aced my calsses. i am such a loser.
anyway it all started predictably with bianca montgomery on all my childern. She was sweet, pretty and the kinda girl you just want to protect. Now i of course was a huge BAM fan(bianca and maggie). The chemistry between the two was palpable and the writers drove me crazy with the possibility and ultimate demise of this rarely seen super couple.
With the soon to be over storyline of Bianca and Reese, her new wife, i have turned to other shows to fill the void. Fall was spent catching up on Paula and Franzi and realizing that after five years of german i am still not fluant. Then i moved on to Pepa and Silvia, i dont speak spanish so i always have to find the translated clips. And most recently have become an Otalia fan.
I was scketpical at first of watching Guiding Lights' Olivia and Natalia dance around lesbianism, because lets face it tv is a ficail friend. But after spending the past few days watching how their story unfolded i have to say they may give BAM a run for their money. Olivia's attack first ask questions later survival instinct may get her in trouble and hurts taht new heart of hers, but she with natalia around she seems to mean well. Natalia seems to be gaining some more power in the friendship, which i think is good for both of them. Now i know they rn't officailly a couple, and they may never become one, but the "my two mommies" storyline, and the well developed relationship between the two will be more than enough for some well manipulated fan vids.
i think whats so improtant about this particular portale of lesbians, is that its about two people trying to simply get by in the world. If emma had never written about her "two mommies" it may have taken years for them to realize there is something stronger then friendship between them(wow that sounds so cheesy). They act like every other couple with their little arguements, and misunderstandings, the way they always have a shoulder to cry on, and i hand to hold. Its so normal and natural to them they need a kid to point out that maybe theres a reason.
now just be gald i didn't go into my rant about television lesbians and their obession with babies, yeah lots of us want children, but lots of us dont, we aren't that two dimensional. im stoping, im stoping, i promise.
i dont think anyone is reading this, but if you happen upon it heres a link to an otalia fansite:
