    I agree. Sharon Case should have been in that Daytime Queen as well. They have tried to destroy her character for a long time now. It looks like their going to try and pin Austin’s murder on her. If they do and they think they lost viewers before watch what happens then.

    From the short clip, it looks like an all soap cast of yet another version of the Real Housewives. I am okay with that though, as I do watch some of the Real Housewives shows, and I know and like some of the women in this new show as well. Wishing them all well.

    I was a big fan of Chrystee Pharis on PASSIONS. She was quite good and the reveal and playing out of her lesbian storyline was well acted…and completely ignored by the soap press. That was a shame. I hope she gets a chance to shine here and, as the minority, is not simply cast as the no nonsense balck girl steroetype or, worse, Omarosa/Starr Jones-esquw villain on the show. I always felt that, had there been more roles for black women on daytime, she would have been snapped up quickly by another soap.

    Is it a reality show or scripted? I thought it was going to be a scripted show. Don’t think I’ll watch if it’s reality.

    If I understand, it’s a reality show about these six women producing and starring in a pilot for a primetime soap opera.
