Does Dirty Soap Get Your Vote?

Reality TV factory E! debuted former All My Children supercouple Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos' docu-sudser Dirty Soap on Sunday night. The sexy, glossy series featured Nadia Bjorlin embarking on her last day on the set of Days of Our Lives as opera singer-turned-hooker Chloe Lane, supportive boyfriend Brandon Beemer (Owen, The Bold and the Beautiful) by her side.

Also from DAYS was Galen Gering (Rafe), whose wife Jenna Gering was tired of being the wallflower at cast parties, but was apparently even more weary of seeing her hubby kiss Alison Sweeney (Sami) on national TV (Uh, how long has Galen been acting in soaps? This is just now an issue?).

Bjorlin's former castmate and galpal Farah Fath was also on hand. The mouthy scene stealer was in the process of relocating to La La Land in the premiere, after her time as One Life to Live's Gigi came to an end (Or has it?). Meanwhile, Fath's real and reel life leading man JP Lavoisier (Rex, OLTL) was avoiding relocating from NYC to Hollyweird like the plague.  

Also in the cast were Fath and Bjorlin's former DAYS' costar Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital), whom Fath was nervous about bumping into, due to their complicated past.  Storm's homegirl in and out of the fictional town of Port Charles, Kelly Monaco (Sam) was also along for the "unscripted" ride, and finding it hard to ditch the belongings of some dude she'd dated since like The Fresh Prince of Belair was still in production.

I thought the show was a fun, splashy—if sometimes silly—hoot. I cannot wait to see Fath and Storms showing out this season on Dirty Soap, especially if liquor and nightclubs are involved! I also think it's hella cool that at a time when every single mainstream media headline is screaming "Soaps Are Dead," one of the hottest channels around—catering to the very demos soaps need to survive—is basically offering a 10-week promotional blitz for suds. What did you guys think?
