Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time before the telenovela   market and it’s huge industry  got involved with a riff on the highly successful “Real Housewives” franchises of Andy Cohen and Bravo TV!

Just announced is that WE tv is developing the unscripted series The Real Women of Telenovelas.  Set in Miami and produced by Matador, the show will follow a group of established and up-and-coming actresses and actors working in the genre.

The world of telenovelas has everything we look for in a WE tv show  compelling characters, conflict, consequence and comic relief,” said WE tv president Marc Juris. “We could not be more excited about this project and bringing these beautiful women and their stories and highly-charged relationships to WE tv viewers.  I think we’ll find the lines on the scripts in these TV dramas sometimes pale in comparison to real life.”

The series will focus on the lives of a mix of high-profile and up-and-coming actresses and actors in the telenovela scene as they navigate this drama-filled world. The high-octane drama onscreen is nothing compared to the real-life drama these people face. These colorful frenemies compete for roles and dates, walk the same red carpets and, of course, fight for the same spotlight. And now they’re ready to take their careers to the next level.

Would you watch the The Real Housewives of Telenovelas which probably will have to be the campiest thing ever?  Are you sick to death of all the “Housewives” shows?  Or, do you enjoy them as much of America does?  Comment below!

I so agree with you. What are these things all about? Drama! Which is the basis for all soaps! Why not invest in the real thing?

Telenovelas are spanish/whatever..
They are not spoken in english so the housewives of Telenovelas would be speaking which langue..
(I don’t do subtitles… lol

Also-
It is said Housewives are not scripted..
The cast is not handed a script however-
they are lead.. It is set up .. It is staged..
They are told the subject , where to go what do etc etc
Reality is to be 24 hours in their lives, not 36 minutes..
To watch 36 minutes (about actual time minus the commercials) in the lives of housewives, and a very exciting 36 minutes is FRAKE!!
It is sensaliaiam showmanship of trashy stuff.. 36 minutes of realty, get real..

(LMAO_ 36 minutes of their life is all in an episode..
In real life I can’t even do a load of laundry or drive to the mall or work in amount of time..yet do everything they do in 36 minutes time
LOL
FAKE JUNK..

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
