The Drama, The Queens, The Reality

Let’s begin with it all front and centered. The “Queens of Drama” is not just a soap opera; it’s not just a reality skit either. This full-fledge, cork-popping, eye-shadow drama is the best of both worlds multiplied by six.

Six of the world’s prominent soap opera stars collaborate—or at least try to—to produce what is, at its heart, a solid idea in script format for modern television. A script, however, is actually not needed for this type of soap.

At best, you can pretend one exists.

The premise: A group of successful female producers work together to. …produce. …reality. Pause for a moment if you have to. We tend to take our time to let it all sink in. Better yet, somebody call the hairdresser, the stylist and a makeup artist. Egos are sure to get bruised, and a few fingernails will find themselves where they oughtn’t be.

This is “sometimes” what we hope for. Those inherent risks, to pull off a broadcast like this, is exactly why people love to see the series air. The show has been a hit. The more “drama” and disaster, the more viewership, prestige and money.

The show landed on the broadcast scene at a time when the general viewings and filming of soap operas were in steady decline. They still are. This makes the plot in “Queens of Drama” a cutting-edge technology. We all know how inexpensive reality shows are to make and how much fun, attention and publicity they can garner.

Even the most cruel soul will stop to see what commotion a reality like this is making if for a brief moment. When you consider the top-tier names in soap opera who appear, it becomes easy to understand where this “hype” inevitably comes from.

The show casts, Lindsay Hartley, Donna Mills, Vanessa Marcil, Chrystee Pharris and Hunter Tylo. The right atmosphere is brewed in this collective. Of those known names on the “Queens of Drama” cast bound to be recognized by soap opera enthusiasts will we find the beautiful and wonderfully successful, Crystal Hunt.

Crystal is one of two blondes we see among the day-to-day activities of the filmed syndication. Like those co-producing in this reality-like series, Crystal Hunts takes on a pseudo-role that, like other cast members, resembles a prior role the actress played. For Crystal, the popular persona of Stacy Morasco is, more often than not, displayed on broadcast.

CrunchBase outlined that Ms. Hunt got her initial start at the-age-of 17 when casted for a day-time debut during the broadcast of “Guiding Light”. Since then, and as a teenager, she has become an Emmy-nominated actress working on the cast of “Guiding Light” for four years. That role ended at roughly the-age-of 21 and for a bright star in Hollywood.

It’s not a bad place to start considering how much Crystal’s acting career has propelled forward. This breakthrough, for an underage star, enabled opportunities for Crystal Hunt to appear on the big screen, big time. A handful of movies under her belt resulted in the actress returning back to where it all started however: soap operas.
