14 September 27th, 2011 DIRTY SOAP POLL: Thumbs Up or Down? Who’s Drama Had You Hooked?

Courtesy/E!

Dirty Soap premiered on Sunday and we want to know what to know your opinion of the new reality series on E! Entertainment Television!  Starring General Hospitals, Kelly Monaco and Kirsten Storms, DAYS Galen Gering and wife, Jenna, former DAYS star, Nadia Bjorlin and her beau, The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Brandon Beemer and One Life to Live’s John-Paul Lavoisier and Farah Fath, the debut introduced the audience to the actors and a portion of their real life drama.

So what duo’s ” story” did you enjoy the most?  Nadia and Brandon were dealing with the end of Nadia’s time at Days of our Lives, Kelly and Kirsten were dealing with Kelly trying to get over a long term relationship while Kirsten was trying to help her pass through the grieving process.  JP and Farah were dealing with trying to buy a house and JP coming to terms with a move to LA from the city he loves the most, New York.  And, Galen and Jenna were having issues with Jenna’s jealously towards Galen’s soap job, and his making out on camera with his leading ladies.

So, we have created two polls for you to answer after the jump! First, are you into the reality series and its concept? Second, which duo are you most intrigued by?   You can vote only once from one IP address.  Voting goes through till Wednesday night at 11PM PST.   We will post the results on Thursday.   Cast your vote now!

    I really enjoyed everyone except Farah. She is not someone I would want to be friends with. Her drama with Kirsten should be interesting.

    I didn’t know that Jenna and Galen have been together for so long … that’s awesome! And their kids are adorable. “Why is Ben’s mommy kissing daddy?” haha

    Wow. I was really looking forward to this show and now, having seen it, I wish I could un-see it.

    Here are my snap judgments based on the first episode:

    * Farah comes off as a massive b–ch. Because this is the first time we really get to see the off-screen lives of our fave stars, it’s harder to separate the character from the actor, and all of a sudden Gigi has lost her luster to me.

    * How many years has Galen been kissing hot chicks on soaps? Either his wife is completely neurotic or really amping up the drama for the cameras.

    * Kelly’s drama feels so real/relatable that I feel dirty watching such private pain. I know she invited the cameras, but it feels a little invasive.

    * Nadja/Brandon are incredible eye candy, but I found them to be (surprisingly) boring. Maybe I would have been more affected by Nadja’s departure from Days if there had been more goodbyes to the cast. It might not be possible for whatever reason, but it seemed a little cold to me.

    Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love daytime and everyone that works to bring us our soaps. This show just leaves a really bad taste in my mouth.

    I found it to be obviously staged, Brandon and Nadia seemed the most natural.

    I found Farah to be a little obnoxious which really surprised me.

    I find it hard to believe Galen Gering’s wife has such a problem with his job….

    Kelly came off real….
    Kirsten seems bossy and controlling….
    Jenna is just annoying, I mean you’ve been with your husband for 18 years. It just seemed fake to me….
    Galen came off a little boring…
    Nadia & Brandon were cute, but how long can they really keep my interest?…..
    And the big shocker for me was Farah & JP. They are my faves on OLTL, but completely different from what I expected. She has a tendency to act kinda bratty and JP doesn’t really seem like he cares that much about their relationship. It could be the way it’s edited, but I don’t get the feeling that their real-life relationship is going to last. Plus, I read in another article that he tends to lose interest real fast when the subject of marriage comes up, so Farah may not want to sing the “Single Ladies” song….

    I would watch Kelly but Farah must GO. I am sad that the drama was so contrived. It appears that actors don’t know how to do reality tv, so maybe those other reality stars really are talented.

    The contrived drama was obviously fake. Soap actors should never lie to their fans.

    Kirsten Storms appears to have some psychological issues.

    I agree that most of it was staged – unlike other reality type shows, these people are actors and it’s fairly easy for them to fake emotions they are not truly experiencing. The one thing I was really surprised about was that Galen’s very small children were allowed to watch him on TV in bed with another woman. Way to screw with a little kid’s head.

    There were too many main characters! Nobody got much time so it was boring! Reality shows usually have only 2 main characters & other people mixed in!

    I think the show is pretty good. I like that Farah ‘keeps it real’. She reminds me of one of my close friends. Her boyfriend acts like girl who whines a lot about LA. I like that Nadia and her boyfriend Beemer are the perfect couple who has everything; the looks, the personality and the fame. I expect to see more than just a beautiful front cover. Kristen seems down-to-earth, and I’m really glad that she doesn’t come off as a cliche as other Hollywood blondes. Galen and his wife is like a story of, “My Married Life to a Soap Opera Star.” Their kids are quite a handful (no offense), but I hope that the viewers will take parenthood seriously. Kelly’s drama is pretty entertaining too.

    I was surprise but most by farah, she does come across as bitchy, Galen wife, clearly is a drama queen, she came across as somebody desperately wanting to be a soap star, like she was auditioning to be on one of the soaps and he came across as a total tool, Kelly and Kisten seemed the most normal as did nadia and brandon, well actually they came across as plastic barbie n ken. so, so far i like the show, but we’ll see.
