Ah, remember the good ole days of Oakdale and the life of good gal gone bad, gone questionable, Emily Stewart?  We do too!  Kelley Menighan Hensley, who has been Daytime Emmy nominated for the role on As the World Turns, is back on television starting tonight!

In a brand new scripted television series called, Reality Show, Kelley stars in this  8-episode, darkly satirical series, which follows Mickey Wagner (Adam Rifkin), a down on his luck reality show producer, as he crafts a sensational comeback. Fed up with how staged and phony reality shows are, Mickey’s hatches a revolutionary idea to pick an average American family and put them under all-encompassing surveillance…without the family’s knowledge. T he concept is to let real life unfold before the cameras. However, the family is numbingly boring. And the studio wants more sizzle. So Mickey starts to introduce drama into the unwitting family’s lives. Temptation to cheat, drinking, work problems…. chaos ensues. Everything unravels in a big, big way with shocking consequences.

Hensley plays Katherine Warwick, who Kelley refers to in her blog as “insanely vanilla, crafty, sex deprived, and happy as can be.  Or is she?”  In addition, in a new conversation with CBS Soaps In Depth, Kelley revealed,  “It’s out there. I mean, I called my parents when I agreed to do it and I’m like, ‘I’m just preparing you that.. I’m not a hundred percent sure I want you to see all of it!'”

After the jump, take a look at the teaser for Reality Show and if you have Showtime let us know if you will be tuning into the season premiere of it tonight at 11:30PMEST/PST?

Well, the trailer has peaked my interest enough that I would be willing to check it out. I loved KMH on ATWT, so it would be great to see her in another role.

It’s a rip off of The Truman Show!!!

I love Kelley and wish her lots of success (her brunette hair looks good!). I still wish she got the part on GH she was up for (either nuKate or that woman in white…better if it was nuKate). I won’t be following this new thing though. I’d rather watch the movie.

I had no idea Kelley was up for a part on GH! I hope she’s successful in this.

When was she ever up for Kate Howard? That wouldn’t have worked!

google “Kelley Menighan Hensley General Hospital” and it’s the 6th link down. It doesn’t say for what role she was up for, but I remember at the time there was a discussion on soapcentral and it became clear it was one of those 2 roles (maybe she made a comment on her twitter or something that made it clearer, I’m not sure. All I know is her fans were).

LOL Jules I hardly call that confirmation she was up for a role on GH from a fan forum. Those rumours surround that show like crazy. KMH never even discussed Twitter around that time. Plus, her and Jon weren’t even in LA until after Kate returned to the series.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
