The results are in from our two days poll after the premiere episode of Sunday’s episode of Dirty Soap on E!  After your votes have been tabulated in the two polls that we ran, here are the results below and a big “thank you” to everyone for casting your ballot!

For the question posed; “What did you think of the premiere episode of Dirty Soap?” 61.03% gave the soapy reality series a big “Thumbs Up!” And 26.67% said, ‘On the fence, not sure”, while only 10.77% told us, “Thumbs down, contrived reality show, no interest.”   So from this data we can conclude that the majority is digging the show!

In our second question posted we asked, “What duo’s drama did you get into the most?”   Now this was very close, illustrating that there seems to be interest in several of the couples or friendships “stories”.   In the number one slot was General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco and Kirsten Storm  with 32.46% of your vote.  Hot on the heels was OLTL’s John-Paul Lavoisier and Farah Fath and DAYS Nadia Bjorlin and B&B Brandon Beemer, both couples tied for the number two slot with 27.23% of your vote.  In last place and far behind the pack was Days of our Lives star, Galen Gering and wife, Jenna with only  8.9% of your vote.

So now its on to Dirty Soap episode number two this Sunday.  We’ll do another poll in a few weeks and throughout the shows run to check in on your feedback.

I don’t like it. When I say I hate reality shows, I don’t try to be a hypocrite about any of it. I hate all of them, even this one. Reality tv is never real.

I will not make an exception.

I hate Dirty Soaps Reality Show…

I thought Kelly Monaco was the least interesting. I am a huge OLTL fan, so of course I am invested in JPL and FF, but I really enjoyed Nadia Bjorlin. I am surprised, because I never watch DOOL. Her story makes me want to see good things happen for her.

I liked Nadia and Brandon the best. They seem like nice normal people. Farah looked liked a spoiled princess who I could not want to be around. Galen seemed cool but his wife is a little insecure.

I totaly agree with your comment.
Farah sure eeds an attitude adjustment.

I agree about Farah. What really disgusts me is the relationship between Nadia and her mom. She seems like a dimmed slightly arrogant chick and her mom a joke and a serious nightmare!

True, reality TV is never real, however, most TV isn’t “real”.
That being said, I thought the show was just OK. I’d hoped for more and I’ll tune in this week to see if it gets better.

Dirty Soap was very fake, contrived, dull, and scripted. All reality tv is fake and scripted but Dirty Soap is one of the worst offenders. The actors chosen are not charismatic, likeable, or interesting enough. I won’t be watching any further. I’m sick of reality tv. What network and cable tv needs is more SCRIPTED dramas and comedies. Down with reality tv!!

The best potential for the show is getting to know these actors as real people. To that end, I thought Nadia and Brandon gave us the most insight into what their lives might be like. Just loved them.

Last night I watched the episode where Jesse tells Angie their baby died. (I have been saving my DVR’d AMC) After it ended I turned off my TV to go to bed, thinking about Angie and Jessie and the mothers out there who suffered the tragedy of a still birth. It distracted me long enough from my own problems to fall asleep.

Isn’t that better then taking a sleeping pill? Maybe when Dr. Oz has his infomercial/show he can suggest watching a soap opera as an insommia cure. But that would ruin his daughter’s ratings. Never, ever has thinking about food caused me to fall asleep.

Dirty Soap was contrived, and phony like all reality TV. The only plus was seeing some behind the scenes action at the soaps and getting to watch a few of the soap stars. I far prefer watching soaps and other scripted shows that don’t pretend to be “real.”

Love Kelly Monaco and Kirsten Storms! I also like Galen, Nadia, and Brandon. As scripted as this show is, I still like it 🙂

You guys are crazy! This is just like any other E reality shows! It does seem scripted, but I dont believe it is.There are somethings you cant not write a script about!

jill

Not true! they are all so different. Some good and some not! This one is so poorly written and edited. I feel like I am watching a bad soap…and they ARE scripted. I just wish Nadia would grow balls and Brandon would gain 10 pounds. He looks like he has an eating disorder – as nice as he seems, she looks bigger than him lol

I enjoyed getting to know the people behind the characters. When you see them in their roles you tend to think of them in a certain way. Watching them on Dirty Soaps has changed my thoughts about most of them. I am a long time fan of DOOL and I now enjoy the characters more. Im just sorry that Nadia has now left the show, but I wish her much success. Gaylen, I have to say really surprised me and I think he and his wife are adorable. Farah was a big shocker, she comes across as such a spoiled brat. And Brandon, should hang in there with Nadia’s Mom. The two of you make a wonderful couple. I will continue to watch. Thanks guys and Good Luck.

Oh sad, that there even RealityShow lovers at all.
And for SOAP stars. Guys you’re just degrading yourselfs this way.

Jan, it that is the case, WHY are you here and leaving comments.

For one thing, Farah has always been awesome to me. She definitely will tell you what she thinks, but is also so wonderful to her fans. She will always be one of my top favorite people. JP is just a sweet, funny guy and yes, he is that goofy. lol. I think he has a great sense of humor. I actually had Farah tell me she knows she’s not my favorite and that Nadia is. Okay, so I’m busted, but that doesn’t mean I still don’t love her. Anyway, I don’t think they are fully showing how she really is. Who else would go out of their way and go have lunch with fans? She’s one of the best!

Nadia is just like she is on the show. And her mom is right about one thing, Nadia has a wonderful heart and she is a good person (amazing, really!). No Doubt! Her and Brandon are so sweet together and I love them as a couple. They definitely have very similar personalities and I hope her mother realizes how great of a guy he really is. So he uses his phone at the dinner table? I’m sure you’ve been guilty of it at least once. I know I am.

I didn’t realize this was a reality show at first. I thought it was like one of those internet soaps. LOL. Anyway, just watching an episode now and love it. It’s reality TV, but not over produced like some reality shows. Enjoying seeing the real lives of actors I’ve watched on TV for years. I hope the show continues and look forward to seeing additional episodes.

Cant get enough. Days fan for over 18 yrs and love watching what life is like for these daytime actors is pretty interesting. A nice peek into their lives and the normalcy of life in relationships off screen.

Doesn’t anyone agree that Brandon needs to grow balls and leave Nadia, unless she is willing to separate her nasty mom, from her blossoming relationship. Her mom is toxic!

Joanie

All these people bad mouthing “Dirty Soaps”
DON’T watch it.
I for one enjoy it. I love Nadia & Brandon.
Nadias mother is another story.
She can’t be for real.
What a nasty mumma

What is wrong with Kirsten?
I miss her on GH.

I have been watching Days since it started….years ago. I really enjoy watching Dirty Soap since a lot of the people from Days are on it. I think Farah should kick her boy to the curb…what a jerk!!! I really like Nadia and Brandon, it’s cool to see where they live, and all the others too. Galen is hot on Days. I will keep watching.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
