As the World Turns InTurn. The reality television show which pits several neophyte actors competing for the chance of a continuing stint as a minor supporting character on ATWT must have been decently successful, as the show is now in the process of wrapping up the second season of the Webisode series, InTurn, distributed through the CBS Web site. I wrote about InTurn last August, pointing out that some fans of the soap enjoyed the extension, while others felt that it distracted the company's attention from the main text, which should be the focus. Last year, the finalists appeared in small roles on the main text of the show, giving viewers a chance to choose among the finalists. They were doing a story in which a serial killer was murdering Oakdale teenagers, and each of the InTurns played one of the roles. The winner, Alex Charak, plays the recurring role of Elwood Hoffman, who was the college roommate of a prominent ATWT character for awhile. This season hasn't wrapped up yet, but one of the contestants who didn't make the cut has recently had an extended run in the small part of a barmaid on the show. See more here.

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.
