Marissa Tasker-Chandler, All My Children
Marissa Tasker-Chandler (Brittany Allen between 2009-2010, Sarah Glendening between 2010–2011)
When Bianca Montgomery decided to divorce her wife Reese, she hired female attorney Marissa Tasker to be her divorce lawyer. Bianca developed romantic feelings for her, and Marissa, surprised, responded that she was flattered and loved Bianca, just not “in that way”, and apologized, saying she was straight.
Marissa, feeling uncomfortable, ended up sleeping with JR, her ex-husband who was trying to win her back, although she was shown thinking about Bianca, and eventually admitted her feelings for Bianca and they kissed. Bianca pulled away during the kiss, called it a mistake, and explained that all her relationships had been a dead end – that, in the end, she ended up losing her lover and best friend.
Later on, Bianca walked in as Marissa was telling JR that she wanted Bianca. Marissa confessed to both Bianca and JR that she was in love with Bianca. In the following weeks, Bianca and Marissa started dating, much to JR’s fury, and discussed finding a house and moving in together with their children.
Marissa was later shot and killed in a drunken rage by JR, at a party she attended with Bianca.
Bianca was seen visiting Marissa’s grave and updating her on Marissa’s nephew/adopted son AJ, and Bianca’s own daughter Miranda, whom they had planned to raise together. Bianca told Marissa that they were meant to be together and that she would never stop missing her.
