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 drama for the cameras.

* Kelly’s drama feels so real/relatable that I feel dirty watching such private pain. I know she invited the cameras, but it feels a little invasive.

* Nadja/Brandon are incredible eye candy, but I found them to be (surprisingly) boring. Maybe I would have been more affected by Nadja’s departure from Days if there had been more goodbyes to the cast. It might not be possible for whatever reason, but it seemed a little cold to me.

Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love daytime and everyone that works to bring us our soaps. This show just leaves a really bad taste in my mouth.

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….

How do we find out the results of these polls?

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, but I don’t get the feeling that their real-life relationship is going to last. Plus, I read in another article that he tends to lose interest real fast when the subject of marriage comes up, so Farah may not want to sing the “Single Ladies” song….

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 Soap Opera Star.” Their kids are quite a handful (no offense), but I hope that the viewers will take parenthood seriously. Kelly’s drama is pretty entertaining too.

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: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

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.
