Its a real soap opera
Monday, June 20, 2005
The winner of the second season of SOAPnet's "I Wanna Be a Soap Star," which premieres June 23, gets a 13-week role on "All My Children"-but snarky judge Michael Bruno (aka the "Simon" of the series) says the sudsy reality show is better than the real thing. "This show has what we, unfortunately, don't get on the soaps anymore, which is big surprises," Michael tells INSIDE TV. Besides learning who'll get the ax, Michael says viewers will see some behind-the-scenes naughtiness. "Who is pretending to be sweet as pie? Who is sleeping with whom? That stuff is just as compelling as the competition."
