Dirty Soap premiered on Sunday and we want to know what to know your opinion of the new reality series on E! Entertainment Television!  Starring General Hospitals, Kelly Monaco and Kirsten Storms, DAYS Galen Gering and wife, Jenna, former DAYS star, Nadia Bjorlin and her beau, The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Brandon Beemer and One Life to Live’s John-Paul Lavoisier and Farah Fath, the debut introduced the audience to the actors and a portion of their real life drama.

So what duo’s ” story” did you enjoy the most?  Nadia and Brandon were dealing with the end of Nadia’s time at Days of our Lives, Kelly and Kirsten were dealing with Kelly trying to get over a long term relationship while Kirsten was trying to help her pass through the grieving process.  JP and Farah were dealing with trying to buy a house and JP coming to terms with a move to LA from the city he loves the most, New York.  And, Galen and Jenna were having issues with Jenna’s jealously towards Galen’s soap job, and his making out on camera with his leading ladies.

So, we have created two polls for you to answer after the jump! First, are you into the reality series and its concept? Second, which duo are you most intrigued by?   You can vote only once from one IP address.  Voting goes through till Wednesday night at 11PM PST.   We will post the results on Thursday.   Cast your vote now!

I really enjoyed everyone except Farah. She is not someone I would want to be friends with. Her drama with Kirsten should be interesting.

I didn’t know that Jenna and Galen have been together for so long … that’s awesome! And their kids are adorable. “Why is Ben’s mommy kissing daddy?” haha

Wow. I was really looking forward to this show and now, having seen it, I wish I could un-see it. Here are my snap judgments based on the first episode: * Farah comes off as a massive b–ch. Because this is the first time we really get to see the off-screen lives of our fave stars, it’s harder to separate the character from the actor, and all of a sudden Gigi has lost her luster to me. * How many years has Galen been kissing hot chicks on soaps? Either his wife is completely neurotic or really amping up the… Read more »

I found it to be obviously staged, Brandon and Nadia seemed the most natural.

I found Farah to be a little obnoxious which really surprised me.

I find it hard to believe Galen Gering’s wife has such a problem with his job….

Kelly came off real…. Kirsten seems bossy and controlling…. Jenna is just annoying, I mean you’ve been with your husband for 18 years. It just seemed fake to me…. Galen came off a little boring… Nadia & Brandon were cute, but how long can they really keep my interest?….. And the big shocker for me was Farah & JP. They are my faves on OLTL, but completely different from what I expected. She has a tendency to act kinda bratty and JP doesn’t really seem like he cares that much about their relationship. It could be the way it’s edited,… Read more »

I would watch Kelly but Farah must GO. I am sad that the drama was so contrived. It appears that actors don’t know how to do reality tv, so maybe those other reality stars really are talented.

The contrived drama was obviously fake. Soap actors should never lie to their fans.

Kirsten Storms appears to have some psychological issues.

I agree that most of it was staged – unlike other reality type shows, these people are actors and it’s fairly easy for them to fake emotions they are not truly experiencing. The one thing I was really surprised about was that Galen’s very small children were allowed to watch him on TV in bed with another woman. Way to screw with a little kid’s head.

There were too many main characters! Nobody got much time so it was boring! Reality shows usually have only 2 main characters & other people mixed in!

I think the show is pretty good. I like that Farah ‘keeps it real’. She reminds me of one of my close friends. Her boyfriend acts like girl who whines a lot about LA. I like that Nadia and her boyfriend Beemer are the perfect couple who has everything; the looks, the personality and the fame. I expect to see more than just a beautiful front cover. Kristen seems down-to-earth, and I’m really glad that she doesn’t come off as a cliche as other Hollywood blondes. Galen and his wife is like a story of, “My Married Life to a… Read more »

I was surprise but most by farah, she does come across as bitchy, Galen wife, clearly is a drama queen, she came across as somebody desperately wanting to be a soap star, like she was auditioning to be on one of the soaps and he came across as a total tool, Kelly and Kisten seemed the most normal as did nadia and brandon, well actually they came across as plastic barbie n ken. so, so far i like the show, but we’ll see.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
