Move over, housewives, there are some new ladies on the block… and they are here to show you how to bring the drama! In one of the smartest programming moves we’ve seen in ages, Pop (formerly the TV Guide Network) will air the pilot of their sudsy new reality show, QUEENS OF DRAMA, at 10 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 26th, directly after this year’s live telecast of the Daytime Emmy Awards.
So is QUEENS worth sticking around for? Only if you want to see some of your favorite former daytimers butting heads as they attempt to create a whole new soap. Do parts feel wildly scripted? Without doubt. But where else are you going to see Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, GENERAL HOSPITAL) give an epic eyeroll to** Donna Mills** (ex-Madeline, GH; Abby, KNOTS LANDING) before declaring she feels “completely insulted” and walking out of a meeting?
And that’s before DYNASTY’s Joan Collins (Alexis) has even made her first appearance.
In short, this is the reality show soap fans have been waiting for. Following Sunday’s premiere, QUEENS which also stars Crystal Hunt (Stacy, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT), Lindsay Hartley (Cara, ALL MY CHILDREN), Hunter Tylo (ex-Taylor, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and Chrystee Pharris (Simone, PASSIONS will air Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET beginning on April 29th.
