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.

Good for her…. I loved ATWT… and Emily and Dr. Susan… were always watched… by me… I guess… i always rooted for the underdog…. the put upon, misunderstood… winsome, twosome… single mother and daughter… made it…. till the end of oakdale….

didn’t Kelley Menighan do it all… and GOOD…. she married Holden! (Jon Hensley) how good is that….

I hope the show succeeds.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,
