Good news for E! Entertainment’s first reality with daytime soap stars!  Dirty Soap which this past Sunday moved to the 10:30 p.m. ET time slot following lead-in Kendra, saw a strong showing and boost in their ratings!

Both reality series did get a nice assist from,  Kim Kardashian and her wedding special, which was the highest event in the history of E! drawing 10.4 million viewers.  But according to TVByTheNumbers,  “On Sunday following Part 1 of the wedding, Kendra in its new 10pm time slot benefited from the strong Wedding lead-in, and posted its highest rated and most-watched telecast ever with a 2.15 HHLD rating and over 2.7 million Total Viewers.  Immediately following at 10:30pm Dirty Soap, in its new time slot also delivered its highest rated and most-watched telecast of the season with a .95 HHLD rating and over 1.1 million Total Viewers.”

Now the question is, which story from Sunday’s episode kept you tuned-in the most?  Kelly’s GH wedding dress and relationship drama? Farah and Kirsten’s sour reunion?  Brandon and Nadia and Galen and Jenna’s trip to Napa?  Or, something else?  Let us know!

The cast of Dirty Soap should purchase Kim and Kris a nice wedding gift since The Kardashian wedding extravaganza are the ONLY reason the ratings went up for Dirty Soap! The ratings bump won’t last. The ratings for Dirty Soap will drop and taper off next week and onwards.

Why are commenting on a show you probably don’t even watch. What does one show have to do with another. I think dirty soap is great and will continue to have good ratings.

Nadia and Brandon are my favorites. Gaylen and Jenna not so much. Why would they even go anywhere together? It seemed forced and they don’t seem to really be friends. Plus Gaylen is as boring on Dirty Soap as he is on Days. By next week I’ll be fast forwarding when he’s on the screen.

I’m a Mom so I relate the most to Jenna. But I like the other cast members. Farah is hilarious and so is JP…and I don’t think Galen is boring AT ALL…I love Dirty Soap and I hope it continues!!!

I agree about Galen being boring as he is on DAYS. My favourites are JP and Farah. They are so cute but I agree that the ratings will go down again.

I enjoyed this week’s episode, as I have all thus far. My favorites are Farah and J.P. and Kelly and Kristen, but I do enjoy all the storylines. It is nice to see a different perspective of their lives, and I wish all of them and the show much success. I will certainly continue to watch!!!!

My favorites on Dirty Soap are Galen & Jenna, then Nadia & Brandon so I very much enjoyed the Napa trip that featured these couples.

Thanks, Michael, for keeping us up to date on Dirty Soap. I hope you will be able to do more interviews with the actors about their experiences on DS.

My favorite persons on Dirty Soap are not the soap stars, but some of the supporting cast memners: Fary (Nadia’s mother), the Gering boys (sons of Galen & Jenna Gering) and coming in 3rd, JP’s mom (she is a hoot)!

However in general, I do enjoy a behind the scenes look at soap operas. I hope to see more cast members from Days and also more hehind the scenes shots there.

I love the show. I hope it continues to do well. My favorite is Kelly Monaco. I love seeing her in eveyday life.

I watch the show to see Kelly Monaco, unfortunately they don’t show her much. All the time is spent on Nadia and Brandon and JP and Farah constantly telling us how beautiful they are. Wish we could see more Kelly, she’s cool, down to earth and my fave.

Kelly Monaco is the ONLY reason I watch DS. I find her to be extremely real and down to earth. I realize a lot of DS is planned…but, Kelly has the ability to make it look spontaneous. In fact, her portion is the MOST REAL of all of the show. The GH behind the scenes stuff is the BEST part of DS for me. I love GH and Kelly…so, it’s a win/win for me. The last episode was the best so far…Kelly in Pocono’s with her mom was awesome. Great relationship.

DS is good. I LOVE LOVE watching Nadia, Brandon and Fary. I also like Farah. But Galen and Jenna are so boring I have to FF, and Kelly is a narsicist and looks like she should belong in a trailer somewhere.

But they need to reboot for next season. Get rid of Jenna and Galen. Maybe get Kyle Lowder and Arianne. Kirsten should be back after her 90 day treatment and should resume her fights with Miss Farah.

But I could watch the show if only Nadia, Brandon, Fary and Farah were on. They carry the show.

Lets not get it twisted. This show is only being put together for one reason and one reason only. KELLY MONACO.. THE E Network would not have signed off on it unless Kelly was involved. Do I think Kelly and Kirsten are just work friends? Yes. Kirsten’s endometriosis spotlighted that clearly..

I Aboslutely LOVE ‘Dirty Soap’. I have been a faithful ‘Days’ watcher since its’ start 45 years ago – I’m 54 now – and love the characters (past and present), so the stars included in this show couldn’t have been better choices. I didn’t know Kelly Monaco, but have enjoyed following her here. It doesn’t matter which episode airs; I watch the show regardless. Please continue with this entertaining series. It is so nice to see our favorite soap stars out of character and in their own ‘soaps’!

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.
