The life and times of seven soap opera stars are chronicled on the latest E! reality show, Dirty Soap. Among them? General Hospital's troubled Kirsten Storms.
Storms' first taste of fame came as Zenon in Disney’s franchise Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. She moves on to 7th Heaven, That’s So Raven and Clubhouse.
She then went on to star as Belle Black on Days of our Lives before assuming the role of Maxie Jones on General Hospital ... and running into some problems.
Here's an E! promo featuring a THG report on Storms' DUI arrest:
On the premiere, Kirsten tried to figure out drama with her family, and why her relationship with BFF and One Life to Live star Farah Fath went so wrong.
Fortunately, her General Hospital co-star Kelly Monaco was there to help her through it. And look through a bunch of Kelly’s creepy fan mail. Woo hoo.
Elsewhere on the Dirty Soap premiere, Brandon Beemer finds Nadia Bjorlin getting her last Days of our Lives script. He teases her less-than-exciting exit.
Farah meets up with Nadia, her Days of our Lives co-star. The friends dish and chat about what crazy things happened with their characters as they shop.Farah then goes house hunting with John-Paul, who it turns out is not really ready to commit to a life on the West Coast. Farah wants that house. NOW!
Days of our Lives star Galen Gering and wife Jenna read his script, which includes a shower scene with his onscreen love, making Jenna uncomfortable.
As her son sees his dad on TV, the little guy wonders what he’s doing kissing “Ben’s mom,” a.k.a. Galen’s co-star and Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney.
Nadia bids tearful farewells to the Days of Our Lives cast and crew, reflecting that it’s like leaving home, but hey, all good things must come to an end.
Farah attends Nadia’s going away party for Days of Our Lives. Jenna attends with her husband, but feels left out because Galen is the life of the party.
Galen gives a toast to Nadia, as do Farah and Brandon. Nadia is sad, but the moment is bittersweet as she is touched to see so many people who care.
All in all, the premiere was ... interesting. Nothing like a melodramatic reality show about the random young stars of a rapidly declining TV genre.
