Sonia Blangiardo’s highly awaited series, Tainted Dreams had its first look debut today courtesy of Michael Logan at TV Guide Magazine!

The first three episodes of the web series which is a story of a soap set within-a-soap will premiere in early 2014, and features an all-star soap cast of formers stars from All My Children, As the World Turns, General Hospital, Guiding Light and One Life to Live!

At the epicenter is Alicia Minshew who plays Angelica Caruso, the woman steering the ship of the soap opera, Painted Dreams!  There is some steamy action right off the bat with the characters played by Michael Lowry as Jordan, Natalia Livingston as Liza Park, Terri Ivens as Kassandra Bentley, Walt Willey as Gregory Ashford, Austin Peck as Max Hillstone, and Grant Aleksander as Adam Clark.

We loved seeing former Edge of Night and AMC favorite, Larkin Malloy in his new role on the series as Harry Steinman, and Bobbie Eakes as network executive Courtney Parish, and Kelley Hensley as  Veronica!   Anthony Wilkinson is along for the ride in a key role of Anthony DiGiacomo, who has an endearing friendship with Minshew’s Angelica, even though they work together.

There looks to be plenty of drama to come by the looks of the end of the third episode! Now watch Tainted Dreams after the jump! Let us know what you thought of it?  What character or actor did you enjoy seeing the most?

It looks interesting and its nice to see so many veteran performers in the series. It would have been nice if the three parts had been one full episode, but aside from that, think the show can have lots of twists and turns.

Three episodes,three home runs! The soap “purists” will complain about the language and sex,but it’s obviously not meant for them. I’m already liking it more than i do “Venice”,which i love. Great to see so many familiar faces again. Will definitely watch more.

Update……watched the next two . Still don’t like the first one. The next two were good. Loved seeing Bobbie Eakes , Walt Wiley and Alicia Minshew. I will watch and hope it stays interesting.

Agree. I like steamy sex scenes as much as anyone, but only when they belong in the context of the story. The sex scenes in the first episode were totally gratuitous. But, good luck to them on the project.

Their release timing was perfect because I was able to watch all three during my lunch hour. They were all wonderful, but Kelley was phenomenal – as per usual.

Tainted Dreams is not ready for broadcast. Each episode has a voice-over narrative that is preachy and badly attempts to make the scattered scenes coherent. The first three episodes are 6 min, 4.5 min, and 9.5 min in length respectively — a time that, if combined, doesn’t reach the broadcast length of one episode of the Bold and the Beautiful. While I love the cast, the plot is vague and not compelling. Looks like more emphasis was placed on casting than the story. That a fictitious soap opera studio is the setting of this supposed serial demonstrates how ill-prepared the… Read more »

I don’t know what you were watching but I watched TD. The first three episodes very clearly established many characters, identified relationships and set up several stories. I don’t think anyone expects on line programming to be as long as on air programming.

Hi Mark,

The “episodes” did not establish characters. It introduced some in a very cliche way. They offer no compelling reason to watch other than the opportunity to see former soap actors. Strong characters and compelling storytelling make a serial successful — not a voice-over show with clips that offer as much posing than acting.

Perhaps Tainted Dreams would have a better chance of success if the cast wrote the scripts.

Ohhh WOW!

Walt Willey ! Walt Willey ! Walt Willey !

LOVE THAT MAN! so great to him, once again.. 🙂

I really like the real life reality we can see on the internet..
Making love is not porn..
It is a huge part of human-beings! .. not a hidden sin..
Network TV is too censored for the 21st century..
Thanks to the powers for internet programming, and for all the Netflix originals, too!

That was goooood! I especially liked seeing all the old AMC actors. Anyone know where you can usually see these? How many they made? How often they will come out?

This show is full of drama already just how I like it. I love the cast, but Angelica played by Alicia Minshew is my favorite character. Can’t wait until 2014 to watch more of this show!!

(some people are not ready for the uncensored internet programming, but! for us who are ready and enjoying the reality of internet programming, we are in for an awesome 2014 and on into the future!)

interesting concept. The drama behind a soap opera. It goes to show that the drama behind the scenes is just as juicy as the soap opera. The third one is my favorite since it ties the first two clips together. My favorite scene was when this woman (don’t know her real name) slaps Walt and Natalia’s characters in the face after the scene was over. Hilarious.

That was Kelly Menighan Hensley who played Emily Stewart on ATWT for years. She’s terrific!

I actually enjoyed it better than the AMC and OLTL reboots. I like the concept of life in the making of a soap..

I enjoyed “Tainted Dreams” — Alicia is a natural. I hope the male characters will get to be more than one dimensional.

epi. #1. Austin Peck is HOT! talk about growed up and coming in to your own groove! LOL… he surprised me… and, acting with the big dogs….. Yes, there were times when on DAYS it was like… newbie, ingenue, get your bearings… on ATWT… he manned up… and was impressive critics ratings galore… so.. he found his niche writing is all circumspect… Walt Wiley… Same thing!

Chrishell Stause and Singer G Flip Confirm Relationship

During the premiere of Friday night’s Selling Sunset reunion show on Netflix, there were several major moments, but one of them surprised many.

Former All My Children, Days of our Lives, and ‘Young and the Restless’ star, Chrishell Stause confirmed that she is in a relationship with Australian singer, G Flip.

Stause revealed that she is seeing the non-binary singer after the moderator, Tan France asked Chrishell if she was seeing anyone. The former soap star expressed: “I recently have been spending a lot of time with someone that’s very important to me. Their name is G Flip. They’re non-binary, so they go by they/them,” adding, “They are an extremely talented musician.”

Leave it to her soap background to play a part in the ultimate connection between Chrishell and G Flip. Stause explained: “It started because I was just going to be in their video. And it’s about this chaotic love story. I come from soaps, I love acting. And with the job that we have, I don’t always get to do it. At first of course I was like yes, let’s do that.”

G Flip’s latest single GAY 4 Me is out now and her new single is dropping on May 13th, GET ME OUTTA HERE.

Previously, Chrishell was dating her ‘Selling Sunset’ boss, Jason Oppenheim, who opined about the break-up of their relationship on the special. In a scene shown on the Netflix special, Oppenheim shared, “This is not the time of my life where I want to have a family.”  Months back, reports had surfaced that the couple had differences they could not overcome.  However, now Jason expressed that Stause was “the love of my life” and said he may regret forever the fact that he let her go.

Now back to present time.  According to PEOPLE.com, Stause is enjoying the company of G Flip, and the two were seen out and about at West Hollywood’s nightclub/bar, The Abbey, this past Thursday cozying up to one another.

In addition, it appears that Stause and G Flip are now living together in Chrishell’s Los Angeles home, which reportedly was purchased, in part, by her selling her wedding to her ex husband, This Is Us star, Justin Hartley.

Over the last 24 hours, Stause took to her Instagram story clad in a bikini, and showed us the renovation progress of a large closet at her home.  She closed the IG story withm “I’m gonna come out of it now,” to which several of her former DAYS castmates had fun with the ‘play on words’ response and shared some comments back to her.

So, what do you think of Chrishell entering into a relationship with G Flip? We wish them the best. Share your thoughts below.
