The series Queens of Drama is a fantastic new reality show drama starring many soap opera actors that are upcoming breakout stars in the field. One of the most fabulous of those is the actress Crystal Hunt who portrays herself.
Crystal Hunt is perhaps most famous outside of Queens of Drama for portraying the character of Stacy Morasco on the long running soap opera My Life to Live. Her tenure on the show lasted around one year, from 2009 to 2010, and her role was one of the most memorable in the shows history. She first appeared as a stripper from Las Vegas that was following her sister back to her hometown. When she arrived on the show, she did everything in her power to steal away her sisters girlfriend. Her plotline contained many twists and turns and she proved to be one of the most vibrant faces on the show and was a character that all those who watched the series would remember. There are some cool highlights of Crystal Hunt’s time as Stacy on YouTube.
Her role in Queens of Drama is clearly more subdued, as she is actually playing herself, but is no less entertaining than her turns on the various soap operas. Crystal often assures fans on Facebook that the program is scripted and has the ability to dissipate the line between fiction and reality. She has stated that the character she plays in Queens of Drama is something that expands on the role she took on during her time in soap operas. This can be likened to the famous classic soap opera star Joan Collins who was similarly over the top during her performance. Collins also makes an appearance on the show.
It will be interesting to see how the fans of the reality stars react to seeing the lines between fact and fiction blurred as Queens of Drama takes off. It is a very innovative take on the reality show genre and it should allow it’s stars to portray their dramatic selves in a way that’s true to themselves. Judging from early fan reaction, it seems that many fans of these stars are just happy to see their favorite actors still on television. As they say, “the show must go on” for those in show business and it looks like Crystal Hunt and the rest of the Queens will be in show business for quite some time to come.
