The Queens of Dramatically Meta Reality
The Queens of Drama is the result of an interesting concept: A meta reality show dissembled as a scripted drama about six actresses looking produce a soap opera. Now if that isn’t a hodgepodge of convoluted ingenuity, then I don’t know what to tell you. A premise that involves a bunch of soap opera stars looking to revitalize their slight decline of obscurity by masterminding an elaborate T.V. pitch such as this mirrors the kind of revisionism of the Daytime Soap Opera genre that has been missing from this platform for quite some time. The key components of this intriguing, small screen abstraction includes Vanessa Marcil best known for her work in Beverly Hill’s 90210 and Vegas, Chrystee Pharris from Passions, Hunter Tylo from The Bold and the Beautiful, Lindsay Hartley from Passions, All My Children, and Days of Our Lives, Donna Mills from Knots Landing, and Crystal Hunt from Guiding Light and One Life to Live. And of course, like every basis of the reality show template: The on-screen tension and drama between everyone is palpable.
But perhaps the most colorful one on the show is Crystal Hunt. She spends the majority of her time on show exhibiting her dexterity as a creative force with the business smarts to back it up. The most notable example being that she’s the owner of a pet boutique. And her skills as an actress not only shows on the small screen, but the screen as well, where she starred in the highly successful sequel Magic Mike XXL. And when she isn’t dedicating her craft in front of the camera’s, she delving into the art of appearing behind the camera as a director; her effort was a horror film titled Talbot County.
Born in Clearwater, Florida, her early talent was performing in pageants before her subsequent career as an actress. And outside of photography Crystal Hunt’s big break came in the form of an advertisement with the popular boy band NSYNC. It doesn’t get more providential than that, folks. And just remember, if you feel as though the key to aspiration is not in your foreseeable future, use Crystal Hunt’s success story as a means of inspiration, because anything’s possible if your heart and mind are in the right place.
