The soap opera genre has fallen on hard times. The reality show’s popularity is on the rise. Several former soap opera actresses are killing two birds with one stone. They are united together on a new reality show called “Queens of Drama” which will depict the actresses in the formation of a new soap opera television show. The part about it being about the formation of aforementioned soap opera is really not important. It’s obviously contrived just for the drama and entertainment. And there is plenty of drama with lots of cat fights, silly shenanigans, and unbelievable dialogue.
There are a couple of things that lead to a lot of big, fluffy drama: 1) Vanessa Marcil leads the project until Donna Mills rudely takes charge and 2) Lindsay Hartley and Crystal Hunt are constantly bickering like the drama queens that they are. Hunt definitely has a lot of experience being dramatic. She was born and raised in an upscale community in Clearwater, Florida. Metacritic indicates that her first appearance as a performer was in pageants as six-months-old. Recognizing her talent, her parents had her get lessons in music and drama performance. They also helped her land many a role in T.V. commercials. She attended Palm Harbor University High School. After landing a role on Guiding Light, Hunt dropped out of school and moved to New York City.
IMDb indicates she began her stint on Guiding Light in 2003 and into a much bigger acting career than she had ever known. In New York City, she completed high school via correspondence while acting on the show. On the soap, Hunt famously portrayed Stacy Morasco. She did so well that in 2005 she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Best Upcoming Younger Actress in a Drama. She remained on the show until January 2006. Hunt has also become a successful entrepreneur, owning a high-end pet boutique called “My Pet’s Dream Boutique” back home in Clearwater. Crystal Hunt’s acting reel can be seen on YouTube.
