Imaginary Bitches

Catherine, Heather and That Other Girl at the Webby Awards

Catherine and Heather, stars of Imaginary Bitches, took a stand against discrimination towards imaginary performers at the recent Webby Awards.The You Tube divas costar, Eden Something or Other, won the People's Voice Webby Award, but Catherine and Heather received absolutely nothing for all the hard work they did last year! I totally sympathize with the girls. Eden Riegel once stole an award from me as well...

This is just like when Macauley Culkin was paid $20,000 bucks for the first Home Alone, which made the studio a bazillion dollars. Catherine and Heather should walk off the set! Did Andrew Miller present them with imaginary Mercedes Benz after the first successful season of the show? No. Did he offer to make one of them his imaginary mistress and put her up in an imaginary condo in Malibu, complete with a Sri Lankan houseboy for when he can't get away from that pesky Eden? No. READ MORE

Help Eden Riegel Write Her Webby Acceptance Speech for Imaginary Bitches!



My BSS (Best Soap Star) Eden Riegel needs your help. On June 8, Eden will deliver her acceptance speech for winning the People's Voice Webby Award for her breakout turn in Imaginary Bitches. The catch is, Eden is only allowed five words to say thank you. Sheesh, is Dick Clark producing this thing or what? Anyhoo, the ever-gracious starlet is giving the fans who helped make IB such a smash success the opportunity to write her speech. Go here to submit your ideas, then later in the week IB's ravenous fans—you know, the ones who helped Chuck Pratt beat Bob Guza in the ratings— will vote to pick the top 3-5 entries. Hmm, I wonder if Catherine or Heather will run up on stage and accept the Webby before Eden can get there like Bridget Dobson did to Jill Farren Phelps at the 1998 Daytime Emmys? A curse on you New World Television. My Santa Barbara might still be on if you hadn't booted the Dobsons in favor of that Soap Opera Slayer!

The change in me is you now,
The change in me is you, some how

Designing Bitches

When it comes right down to it, everyone knows the only truly important consideration for the Daytime Emmys is what designer the nominated stars will wear on the big night. I hear Imaginary Bitches leading lady Catherine is leaning toward Vivienne Westwood, while Heather was overheard asking in demand designer Jason Wu if he made crotchless evening gowns, at a recent gala at the Met. She's lucky Keifer Sutherland didn't give her an imaginary head butting for asking such a thing! Catherine and Heather's costars Eden Riegel and Brooke Nevin have opted to use a lesser known designer. Sigh. The show's first Emmy nod, and they're already trying to start trends!

Eden Riegel Training for AIDS Project Los Angeles Disneyland Half-Marathon



Webby Award winner Eden Riegel has mastered the art of playing long (and I mean long) suffering lesbians on All My Children, and proven herself to be the You Tube hybrid of Lucille Ball and Sarah Jessica Parker on Imaginary Bitches, now our scrappy reel and real life heroine is headed for a new challenge, training for the AIDS Project Los Angeles Half Marathon.

"The APLA is a fantastic organization, providing much needed support and services for people who are directly affected by HIV. In these touch economic times, a lot of great causes have taken a hit. I know times are hard for everyone, but if you happen to be looking for a worthy recipient to donate to this year, I wanted to bring this to your attention and give you an opportunity to support the good people over at the APLA," says Riegel.

Riegel's goal is to raise $5,000 for the APLA. At last count, the spunky actress had already inspired over $2600 in donations. What do you say, why not help our girl out? To donate, and/or to find out more information about this worthy cause go here.
