Kelly Monaco Kirsten's replacement "Not Up to Par with Kirsten"



On Dirty Soap tonight, Farah Fath talks about the cancellation of GH and Katie Couric rumors with Kelly Monaco. Then they talk about Kirsten Storms. Fath says it's "Frustrating to get no news" about her illness. Kelly talks about her replacement Jen Lilley and even though they haven't worked together said "she not up to par with Kirsten". Both actresses said it's a tough position to be in, to take the place of someone like Kirsten with her hold on the character. Everyone toasts to her health at that point. I sure wish we'd hear about her situation soon. Her PR person could even put a small update out there to the mags saying "Thanks for the concern" or something!! 
Dirty Soap's finale was pretty dang dull.

What the hell are with Farrah's pant? She looks like Aladdin! Very cute girl but that outfit is awful. Then again standing between nadia & Kelly has to be tough.

I watched last night, kelly is crude and in love with herself. and definitily needs makeup. farah is the biggest whiner and nag. what does john paul see in her. and nadia is gorgeous.the show is boring.

Nadia's mother is pretty crude.

I didn't really think that was fair to say she's not up to par with Kirsten. She is a substitute at this point. I think she's doing pretty well.

I think Kelly was more like 'of course, she's NOT Kirsten"-- meaning no one can replace her.

NuMaxi is quite a relief from Kirsten Storms- one overrated actress with no emotional range.

My2Cents2 said...

I just want to know if this show was picked up for season 2???

As far as the comments that KM is in-love with herself...Ah yea.
Very much so.

FF?? Whoever said what does JPL see in her?? Ditto!!! Nag, desperate, controlling and if Dirty is picked up, I hope she isn't part of the deal!

To me, NuMaxie is overacting way too much and is annoying. Kirsten always played her quirky but adorably endearing. Never got tired of her.

My2Cents2 said...

How can nobody know about KS??
2 shows, and she is nowhere to be found? STRANGE.

Is it just me or do these three ladies look like wax figures on this picture?

KS is the embodiment of overacting. NuMaxi is a fresh breeze, and easier on the eyes.

We heard you Cosmoetica. No need to repeat. But most of us adore Kirsten, and genuinely care about her. I will say (ONCE) that new Maxie had her down to the T in the beginning. But her voice grates on my nerves & I now FF.

I kinda like Kelly being so outspoken and crude, Nadia is Miss perfect IMO, but yes she's beautiful. I think they should have explored other things with John Paul & farrah. Everything they discussed was having to do with his lack of commitment & her wanting to change what he wears, where he lives, and his marital status. When she was just herself I liked her. But with John paul she came off too pushy.

I think Kirsten Storms would like to deal with her illness as privately as possible as it is a difficult time. Probably a select few know her condition at the moment and she would like it to stay that way for now.

LindaV said...

I guess we each have our own opinion of NuMaxie, but I do think she and Kate are getting really bad makeup and look hard. Too heavy on the eye makeup. And as for KS, she has a really serious condition and I doubt if she is thinking about anything except feeling well again.
As for DS, Nadia's mother is a hideous bitch, and I have little respect for Nadia in allowing her to do what she does. "Camping" was a joke - they were on a deck outside a hotel, and obviously had makeup and hair people available. Kelly dresses just as sleazy as Sam in real life. Farah and her John don't need to broadcast their problems to the world, but this is for TV so I guess that is the point. I sort of enjoyed the series.

My2Cents2 said...

LindaV..not sure what happened to my post to you earlier.....

Is DS not getting picked up for a 2nd season??
I like JPL. He is a comical relief from that hideous FF.

That mother is from HELL and I would walk away from her!!!!

I did not repeat: I responded to another's point on overacting.

Sometimes recasts work well. Look at NuKate- a big improvement over Megan Ward. Look at Cady McClain (need to insert an L in that latest post)- she was NOT the first Dixie, but who recalls #1?

LindaV said...

Cosmoetica, have to disagree on Nukate - she is fine but we all loved MW and never saw anyone criticize her. I spent a little time with her when I had the set tour several years ago and she was really nice and genuine.

My2Cents2, poor Brandon does not deserve to be treated like that. When Nadia saw that her mother was trying to set her up, I was glad she called him, but she should have just left. I don't know if there will be a second season, but aside from the family with kids part, I thought it was interesting, if certainly staged.

My2Cents2 said...

Of course its staged Sonya!!
As long we have something to talk about is their point.
I can't even look at Farah.
When JPL said he 'works all year, to be homeless for a week' (about camping) I thought was a hoot.
I laughed and laughed.

We are on opposite sides with Kate.
I was never a fan of Megan Ward.
Though, I can understand why many were. lol
I like this new Kate. Alot. So curious to find out if this rumor about her leaving is true or not.
What a mistake if they let her go.

I'm not criticizing Ward as a petrson but she was never able to do 'Bensonhurst street' the way Kelly Sullivan can. With Sullivan you get street and class, and there seems to always be a bit of fence sitting with her. You never got that w Ward.

I like Sullivan's scenes w Coleman too. I wish Coleman wd go contract. He's a terrific talent that has been wasted- sort of like Real Andrews.

I'd so love Taggart to come back as WSB or something, and bust Sonny's ass. I'm still waiting for them to nail Sonny on Deke's murder. Taggart always said Sonny lied, and it's in Sonny's character for him to have abused his mom and then taken Deke out when he tried to stop Sonny.

Sometimes recasts *do* work well. Look at Lisa Niles...Brianna Brown was the 2nd Lisa.

The best recast of Carly *for me* was Tamara Braun.
