It must be my lot in life to favor the sinfully decadent over what others consider to be more suitable, healthy or socially acceptable. I'm the guy who listens to Top 40 on the radio. I read glitzy, trashy fiction by Jackie Collins and the late Sidney Sheldon and my fave TV shows are generally referred to as "guilty pleasures." I admit it, I don't like to sit around reading, thinking about and/or looking at a bunch of poor people on television (Okay, unless its Roseanne, Good Times or Shameless!) — that's what donations are for.
Rest assured, I don't experience so much as a pang of guilt as I type this sentence — the best webisoap currently in production, The SFN's DeVanity, airs its Season 2 finale tonight and I am just as excited about it as I was the big murder reveal on Revenge a few week's back!
The bejeweled and bedeviled glamour of DeVanity sparked on the red carpet at the 3rd Annual Indie Soap Awards. Cast members (Michael Caruso, Katie Caprio and Alexis Zibolis pictured with Barbie Caruso above left) of the delicious, web soap walked the red carpet in sizzling style!
The event, held at New World Stages in New York City, featured the casts of such web series as Then We Got Help, Empire, The Bay, Pretty, Ragged Isle, Anacostia and others in attendance. Former One Life to Live, Guiding Light and As the World Turns stars also turned out the Indie Soaps, presented by We Love Soaps and SFNTV.com.

Ragged Isle won the Best Indie Soap Award (Drama), while Pretty claimed the Best Indie Soap Award (Comedy). Bitch-tastic series, Anacostia scooped up two awards for Best Writing (Drama) and Best Guest Appearance (Drama) for ATWT alum Martha Byrne's ball-busting turn as a madam on the serial.

What is quickly becoming the Emmys for the webisoap community, the Annual Indie Soap Awards are being held tonight in Gotham, and to say the nominees are pumped, would be an understatement on par with saying the DeVanity siblings are just a wee bit dysfunctional!
Anacostia creator/leading man Anthony Anderson (who I am forever trying to rename Anthony Edwards for some odd reason!) is predicting the cast of his sizzling, mocha take on classic primetime soaps like Peyton Place and Knots Landing, will stun on the red carpet tonight. Anderson tweeted:
Starting to get ready for tonight's Indie Soap Awards #anacostia we gonna rock that red carpet @WeLoveSoapsTV READ MORE
Tonight's the night, webisoap watchers! Daytime grad Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady, Days of Our Lives; ex-Rick, The Bold and the Beautiful) makes his debut on the outrageously entertaining SFN webisoap DeVanity.
Lowder will be playing the role of Andrew Regis, a spoiled, mega-rich schemer, hellbent on seizing control of the struggling DeVanity jewelry dynasty from Jason DeVanity (series creator Michael Caruso). Anyone who recalls Lowder's camptastic villainy as Rick Forrester opposite Ron Moss' Ridge on The Bold and the Beautiful knows this is a role he was born to play. DeVanity airs at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST exclusively on www.sfntv.com. Watch a trailer for Season 2 after the jump!
For those of you who have been salivating over the trailers and teasers for the upcoming webisoap River Ridge— like I have—there's some amazing news to report! Guiding Light and All My Children alum Beth Ehlers, who is one of the stars of the series, recently revealed on Indie Intertube that River Ridge will be joining the delicious, sudsy treat DeVanity on The St. John Fisher Network (SFN)!
