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.

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
