EXCLUSIVE: Life hasn’t exactly been easy for “All My Children’s” Miranda Montgomery, and her portrayer, Denyse Tontz, revealed to Soap Opera Network that the teen’s life is about to get even crazier!
She’s got a lesbian mother, a budding crush on her childhood best friend and has no idea that she’s the product of rape. Yep, that pretty much sums up life for Bianca’s (Eden Riegel) daughter, who’s still trying to figure out who she is in the madness of her Pine Valley life. “I know she’ll be coming into her own pretty soon,” Tontz says of what’s ahead. “There’s a storyline developing that everybody is talking about, which is that she doesn’t know who her paternal dad is, so it’ll be interesting to see that develop.”

“All My Children” made headlines with the oh, so steamy sex scene between Pete Cortlandt (Robert Scott Wilson) and Colby Chandler (Brooke Newton) last week, but can they replicate it this week when Cassandra Foster (Sal Stowers) is literally needing revival by the town punching bag, David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry), or when JR (Ryan Bittle) does something special for Cara (Lindsay Hartley)? You’ll have to tune into “AMC” during the weeks of June 17 and June 24 to find out, but Soap Opera Network has your first look at what’s ahead in those coming weeks!
