What happens when you put three distinct talents together with diverse backgrounds and a host of soap opera notables?

The answer: the fascinating dramedy Tainted Dreams from creator Sonia Blangiardo, which takes viewers on a heartfelt, and often wacky journey of what goes on behind the scenes of a soap opera, something Sonia (a Daytime Emmy-winning director) knows a thing, or two about.  Her passion project has been circulating for a while now, but a few months back the first season of Tainted Drams was acquired by Amazon.  Now fans can enjoy the ride, the romance, the friendships, and the meltdowns of this unique show, with its look into the genre played by the cast of this online series which also includes: Austin Peck, Grant Aleksander, Michael Lowry, Natalia Livingston, Kelley Hensley, Bobbie Eakes, and Walt Willey to name just a few.

Blangiardo, who is currently directing at Days of our Lives, and who became one of All My Children’s most accomplished directors, cast former AMC star, Alicia Minshew (Ex-Kendall Hart Slater) in the lead role in ‘Tainted’ as Angelica Caruso, the supervising producer.  Add to that, Impact Wrestling (POP TV Thurs 8PM) and Big Brother star, Jessie “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Godderz to the mix, and Tainted Dreams can bring in additional eyeballs of wrestling fans, who want to check out Jessie’s acting skills and bulging biceps all at the same time!

On-Air On-Soaps chatted in a joint interview with Blangiardo, Minshew and Godderz to get the skinny on their experiences filming the series, their roles, the connection between professional wrestling and soap operas, and in particular their fans, and much more.  In addition, with the passing of Tainted Dreams cast member and soap vet Larkin Malloy, and the iconic Agnes Nixon, Sonia and Alicia share their thoughts on how two greats in the business affected their lives, while Jessie weighs-in on his pro wrestling future aspirations.  So, here’s what this terrific trio offered up below!
