Latino audiences not easily fooled. Where has Passions gone wrong

Eva Tamargo Lemus (Pilar, PAS)Dear Soapdom,

We are Hispanic women who love American soaps, so we were happy to hear that NBC was reaching out to us Latinos by introducing more hispanic characters in their soaps.

But what NBC has done lately on PASSIONS is truly offensive. First they have talk-show host Christina playing herself. And now they have news magazine anchor Maria Celeste Arraras playing -you guessed it- herself.

My friends and I adore the actress who plays Pilar (Eva Tamargo Lemus) and we think it was disrespectul to her and the rest of the cast to have to work with these non-pros!

Hispanic audiences aren't easily fooled. Most of us are bilingual and watch the Anglo and the Spanish-language networks, so we know there's lots of Latin-TV actresses, who are just as famous as these two ladies, who are bilingual and can actually act. So if  NBC really wants to win us over they should start casting popular bilingual ACTORS instead of talking heads who can't act, even when playing themselves.

Thanks for letting us vent!

Rogelia C., Tifanni L., and Alma R.

Soap Opera or Reality? Reality TV Couples Who Are Still Together

How many reality fans are out there in soapdom?  Do you have your favorite reality couples? As I am sure you know, reality shows give birth to a fair amount of public romances, and a lot of public breakups. It's just like soap operas, but in real time! In reality (pun intended), fact is truer than fiction and some of these reality couples engage in more outlandish activities than the most contrived storylines on our favorite soaps.

As in real "everyday life," couples have their ups and downs.  What's coming up roses one day, is cause to walk the plank on another. But when your personal life is played out on the airwaves for the world to see, it adds a new and distracting dimension to to being able to keep one's personal life personal.
