Courtesy/E!

More bad news for daytime soap fans and the genre itself.   The first reality show featuring daytime soap stars, E! Entertainment Television’s, Dirty Soap is not being renewed or picked up for a second season.

Dirty Soap cast mate Jenna Gering, wife of Days of our Lives and Venice star, Galen Gering tweeted her disappointment today stating, “Sot he word is that Dirty Soap is NOT being picked up for another season. Thanks to all of u who watched. You all have been so supportive!!!”

So what do you think was the issue for Dirty Soap not getting a second chance on life on television?  Do you think the cable network did not put enough effort behind the series in terms of marketing? Do you think mainstream audiences just refuse to tune-in to anything connotated with the word, “soap”, even though the product to many was entertaining and interesting?  Let us know your thoughts!

I am not really surprised it wasn’t renewed. In all honesty I found the show in badtaste, rather tacky and pointless. It actually boggles me that soap actors would participate in these soapreality shows when they directly are causing damage to the general soap operas they have careers in. :/

I don’t agree…The soaps are being phased out…. They were smart to do this show because they wouldn’t have any jobs at all otherwise. There are too many food shows isn’t America fat enough? I would rather see the stars on a reality show rather than not at all…

I think Dirty Soaps was good. It was on E, maybe they can try another station. I seen nothing that was in bad taste, considering the Reality shows they have on. I seen picked on Ice T, no thats bad taste. I say to the producers of DS, keep trying. If the ratings were good, maybe Oprah Chanell. I just want Dirty Soaps back.

I just think it sucks that they didn’t renew DirtySoap. It was an entertaining show which gave us a look into the personal lives of some of our favorite soap stars. I don’t think they really gave it enough of a chance. It was only on 8 times! First my OLTL and now no DirtySoap either! I was looking forward to seeing my Faves Farah Fath and John Paul Lavoisier! 🙁

I am so sad…. I loved it they are taking away all my soaps and replacing it with food… Is it me or is there some new obsession with food shows, America is fat enough.. bring back soaps and bring back dirty soap There is a whole world of people who do love this. They should have given it one more season and market it better. So not fair to the people who truly love soaps and lets face it… They are phasing out the soaps. I want to atleast be able to see them in a reality show……

This is too bad. I really liked this show. Probably didn’t get renewed because so many soaps have been cancelled. If Disney did the right thing and gave back the rights to AMC and OLTL then more soaps would come back to cable networks. Could be that ABC/Disney pressured the producers to pull out to make it look good for the
ABC fiasco

ABC will be sorely out of luck with everyone boycotting ABC daytime and and nighttime now due to pulling AMC/OLTL they are in for a rude awakening!!!! Many won’t be watching the Oscars now!!!!!

That thought crossed my mind as well. Just had a feeling that somehow someway ABC had a hand in it! I did enjoy the show very much. I hope they can give it another shot.

TPTB sure made their minds up rather quickly.I thought wewere all going to find out in a couple of weeks.You know,Kelly and Mark had a great concept and talent to back them up.I’m surprised E couldn’t make room for at least 10 more.

Pointless show to begin with. A reality show, showing the dirty laundry of soap stars. Surprised they found any daytime actors willing to take part in the genre that’s killing their jobs in the first place.

It was bad timing for the reality show. 2/3 years ago when we had 8/9 soaps it would have worked, any maybe would have even helped. But in 2012 with 4 soaps left? I can’t say I blame E!. They have real cash cows to tend to.

I have to say that initially I was looking forward to watching Dirty Soap. I loved the cast members that were chosen, and I had hoped that it would be juicy and give some backstage insights into the world of creating soap operas. Boy oh boy, was I disappointed. I watched all but the last episode, and found it tedious to get through. The show’s demise has nothing to do with the lack of interest in our favorite genre- the show was just plain boring. Really boring. I love Galen on Days, but- OMG his personal life may be fine… Read more »

Good enough idea but not great execution. It did not hold my interest. I would enjoy more examination of professiona lives and such, not home life and personal drama.

Agree. I was looking forward to it, but was disappointed by the show itself and that had to do with the cast. They weren’t interesting enough or likeable. I thought it odd how Jenna reacted to Galen’s job. It’s called acting. He is being paid to kiss Ali. His paycheck is what enables you to stay home and take care of the kids. I liked Farah before DS, but on the show she came off as a total bitch. Nadia’s mother was also infuriatingly annoying. It’s a testament to how much Brandon loves Nadia that he stays with her despite… Read more »

I’m so glad Dirty Soap was canceled. The “reality” show was fake, phony, staged, and embarrassing for all of the actors in the show. All of the actors came off in a bad light as did the soap genre. Plus the show was a boring wasted of space. I’m glad it was axed.

It sucked! I tryed to watch it a few times but it was awful! But most reality shows stink! The networks like them because they’re cheaper. Farah was a real bitch on it!

It sucks that they are not having a 2nd season. I liked watching this reality show on the soap stars, because you got to know who they were outside of their character.

I am very upset that it got cancelled! I love the show, and was excited to see the new adventures of all my favorite soap stars! It was great to get a look into their real lives, and who they are as people. Not just their characters on the soap! Now all I have left is GH. Not sure why all the other reality shows make it (and some of those are really stupid) and Dirty Soap didn’t! This sucks! Not happy right now.

I am upset that DS will not be back and that Kelly,who I watch every day never mentioned anything. I have been a soap opera fan for at least 50 years and feel my TV viewing is not my right any more. Shows can so easily be yanked off the air leaving me grieving.

I am so upset that Dirty Soap is not coming back ON. I purposely searched nonlinear to find out if I missed the second season. I hope someone changes thee mind and bring it back on. I grew up with soap operas so to see their personal life and struggles is a real soap opera.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
