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!

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 ?

@Nikki.
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.

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.

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

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… Read more »

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!!

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

All My Children Stars and Eileen Davidson On New Episode of Virtual Game Show “Soap Opera Know-It-All”

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

The Michael Fairman Channel just released its fifth episode of its season, where in round one of the game play, stars from the beloved All My Children served up the questions including: Cady McClain (Ex-Dixie), Jill Larson (Ex-Opal), Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Cara), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David) and Jacob Young (Ex-Y&R).  In addition, the former cast members from Pine Valley also try to stump viewers at home with some additional character-related questions.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.

Trivia questions from the following daytime and primetime soaps were put to the players during the game: All My Children, As the World Turns, Dark Shadows, General Hospital, Knots Landing, Sunset Beach, Days of our Lives, Dynasty, Edge of Night, One Life to Live, Port Charles and The Young and the Restless.

As the series moves through its now back-half of the season, the winning contestant must defeat the competition for the right to move on to the next episode to face three more challengers all in pursuit of the “Know-It-All” title with special soap-related prizes along the way.
