Queens of Drama, a new, hit, scripted, reality television show, follows a group of famous, middle-aged, starlets in a post-soap opera career lull as they try to write, direct, produce, and star in a steamy, new television series. The show debuted in spring of 2015 and was quickly renewed for a second season. The show dives into the struggles of the women as they try to get their new show picked up by a network. It follows the women in front and behind the camera, capturing glimpses of their often humorous and glamorous lives and the sisterhood that they form over the course of the season. The show offers seven (and most recently an eighth) strong and sultry female leads that are exactly what the series’ title promises: Queens of Drama.
One of those powerful, famous, lady leads is blonde bombshell and seasoned actress, Crystal Hunt. She is most famous for the roles she played as Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light and Stacy Morasco on One Life to Live. More recently, she starred in popular movies Sydney White and Magic Mike, alongside Hollywood hot-shot stars like Amanda Bynes and Channing Tatum. She was even nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
In her role in Queens of Drama, Crystal plays a rather passive character and seems to enjoy a good relationship with the rest of her Soap sisters, although parts of the first season do show her having some blunt words with fellow Queen of Drama, Lindsay. Crystal Hunt who recently celebrated a birthday, is a down-to-earth women, with her roots planted in her small, hometown and it shows through when in comparison to the other, often wildly over-dramatic, women on the show. She is one of the more relatable stars on Queens of Drama, due in part to her young age and Crystal Hunt’s Instagram following. Hopes are high to draw attention back to prime-time soaps and to open up the median age of general audiences that find interest in soap operas. Crystal Hunt could be a very useful tool in attracting younger viewers to the Network, especially since she has been in so many movies that are popular with Millennials.
Queens of Drama is already taking off as one of the more popular, new, daytime television shows of 2015 and has a promising start for the new year with the premier of their second season. Crystal Hunt has amazing chemistry with her fellow soap stars and her charming personality offers great balance with the other stars of the show. Viewers are hoping to see the women’s relationships blossom in upcoming seasons and every episode that airs offers the promise of plenty of drama to come.
