Such fun Michael, thanks! I hope the show is a great success and stimulates viewers into taking a peek back into daytime soaps. I’d love for you to interview them all again after Dirty Soap is a couple shows in. It will be interesting to hear their reactions at that point.

Thanks for a great interview Michael. I’m counting down until the bubbles from Dirty Soap appear on my screen. Kelly and Nadia seem so naturally at ease with themselves and their colleagues. In fact, I’m anxiously awaiting your next interview with this group after their show has aired. Again, thanks for allowing us to look over your shoulder at the Dirty Soap bubbles.

Just watched the first episode, and it was pretty interesting. I must say though, I’m already not feeling Jenna Gering, Galen’s wife…..I mean, she has been with her husband for 18 years and she was acting like a jealous school girl, when it came to his love scenes that he had to do with his co-workers….it seemed a bit put-on and fake to me….she herself used to model and act, so why is she making such a BIG deal of the scenes, that aren’t even real? Other than that, I found the rest of the cast very interesting. Love the… Read more »

Please put AMC andOLTL on a TV station. As soon as ONTL goes off ABC I and so many others will be boycotting ABC because they cancelled best shows ever. ABC should be cancelled as a network

It felt a bit forced. I wonder what Nadia will think after she sees it and sees Farah dissing her party and then showing up and being all ‘congrats!’

I also thought Jenna’s comments about her husband doing love scenes strange. It’s work and they’ve been married for 11 years and it’s not his first time as part of a couple. Yes, she doesn’t like it, but she needs to accept it. And if she doesn’t like to see it, turn the TV off.

I want to know what broke up Kirsten and Farah’s friendship. They used to be peas and carrots.

Torrey, I agree. Actually both Gerings were pretty cringe worthy and boring. He just seemed uncomfortable, and this is a guy who has had to pull off at least one love scene with a male orangutan with less awkwardness. I cannot believe a wife who was around during that, would continue to be jealous 15 years into her husband’s soap career.

I love this show!! I loved it. I was transfixed for 2 hours tonight :-). It’s great to see actor’s outside their characters. I think it’s refreshing to have a married couple on, as the Gerrings. I wish them all the best in their careers. They’re all talented.

It’s obvious a lot of stuff is scripted, not in the sense of dialogue, but storyline wise. So it tends to be cringe-worthy at times. BUT, I do love Nadia/Brandon who seem the most down to earth. And of course, I love Kelly, whom I know broke up with her boyfriend a while ago–but the pain will obviously still be there no matter how long or who you’re with. I actually think they have a good cast, however I’m not really feeling Galen and Jenna either. They just don’t feel authentic to me–I don’t know, something about them just feels…fake.… Read more »

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!”
