QUEENS OF DRAMA Season Two Casting: Which Two Name Soap Actresses Would You Like To See Join The Cast?



It looks like Pop’s docu-series Queens of Drama that featured for most of the season: Donna Mills, Crystal Hunt, Lindsay Hartley and Chrystee Pharris, is gearing up for a second season!

As fans know throughout the first season, Vanessa Marcil and Hunter Tylo were seen less than the other gals for different reasons, with Hunter bowing out after her on-camera accident.

Now through a casting call that is circulating, the Pop series is looking for two name soap opera actresses of any ethnicity in their early 20s-early 60s to join the cast.

The show is scheduled to begin filming in mid to late fall for up to ten episodes, and the pay rate, according to Soap Opera Digest, is listed at approximately $40,000.  So if you were casting the series, which name soap women would you like to see thrown into the mix with Mills and company? 

Put on your casting director hats and let us know in the comment section below!

Victoria Rowell and Kimberlin Brown!

OMG I couldn’t agree with you more! that would be perfect casting!

Neither of these actresses fits the age group., Lil’ Angel. Andrea Evans and Hillary B Smith are closer to the age group.
Younger group: Kristen Alderson and Kelley Missal.

The article clearly states early 20’s to early 60’s. Victoria is 56 and Kimberlin is 54. How does that not fit the age range? Besides, there is no greater queen of drama than Victoria Rowell.

Lil Angel, you are spot on with Kimberlin Brown and Victoria Rowell — both are clearly in the age range and were HUGE fan favorites during their runs on Y&R. Those two ladies could shake things up.

Victoria Rowell is not a queen of drama. She is a trouble maker from the get go and she needs time out not a job.

I apologize…my bad. I misread. I skimmed through the article. You are right. I thought they were looking for actresses in their early 20’s AND 60’s. Sorry, again, Lil’ Angel. So, yes, I agree with your choices.

Is it 20’s to 60’s or one actress in her 20’s and one in her 60’s ?

Hi, LOL. I think it’s actresses who are in their early twenties through their early sixties. Very obscure sentence, Nikki. I ask the same thing. One in her twenties and one in her sixties?
It’s funny….this is the first time I question my knowledge of the English language, and its grammar, considering I am a grammar-fanatic.
The entire sentence is convoluted, if you ask me. Makes me feel dumb.LOL.

Debbi Morgan. Denise Vasi. Stephanie Gatschet. Eden Riegel. Shannon Kane.

I would love to see Sharon Case and Tracey Bregman from Young & Restless and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood from the Bold & the Beautiful. These three ladies are stunning and would be a joy to see.

Farah Fath & Teri Conn!

Oh, I love Farah Fath….it seems like ages since she graced the screen. Spot on, Karen.

Robin Christopher

Wendy Muniz, Jensen Buchanan, and Lisa Peluso.

If you’re looking for on-air conflict: Victoria Rowell, definitely.

Kirstin Storm and Kelly Monacco

Farah Fath and Ilene Kristen I Would love if those two would join

Robin Strasser and Louis Sorel, enough said

I would love to know what happened to Hunter. They really didn’t even show what happened on TV. She just fell to the ground? Is that it?

I think it would have to be someone who isn’t currently on a soap so they will have time to devote to the show.

Vanessa should not have been included if she wasn’t willing to be on the developed show.

Alison Sweeney and Kelly Thiebaud

I like that idea. This show is sooo stupid that I found it entertaining.

Two names? How about two words…WHO CARES? Lol.

Brooke Kerr, Vanessa Simmons, Brooke Newton, Debbie Morgan, Victoria Rowell, Susan Lucci should show up every now and then! And Chrishell Stause because she’s dating Lindsay Hartley’s ex-husband, hee hee.

Just reading the early posts on this thread shows how many wonderful female actors have graced the daytime drama genre. Where are they now?

There are some with authentic television production chops who would lend a little more gravitas to the show. Martha Byrne. Eden Riegel. Lauralee Bell. Cady McClain. Tamara Tunie. And how about Eva LaRue?

I have very mixed feelings about this show. I was looking forward to it, but once I had watched several episodes I gave up; there was just way too much bitching for my taste that made the women seem nothing short of shallow.

However, that being said ~ and here comes the “mixed” part ~ I would love to see a mature, classy actress like (sorry for any misspelled names) Kim Hayes, Erika Slezak, Linda Dano, Maeve Kincaid come to mind. Or if they wanted another spicier actress how about Eileen Fulton, Elizabeth Hubbard, Kim Zimmer, or Anna Stuart.

For younger actresses, how about Sandra Furgueson, Jansen Buchanan, Jennifer Landon, Martha Byrnes, Aubrey Dollar, Britteny Snow. (Again, sorry about any misspelled names.)

I would love to see Michelle Stafford and Linsey Godfrey add to the mix. Jess Walton can certainly hold her own as well.

My two choices are Nancy lee grahn and Kristen storm.

I agree with the some of the suggestions….Tracey Bregman & Kimberlin Brown would be great. Just to throw another name out there….Stepfanie Kramer. Fair enough she’s most known for a long running, prime time cop show (“Hunter”), but she has also done Dynasty & Knots Landing.
So long as Donna Mills returns for season 2!!

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
