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

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”
