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!!

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
