(Los Angeles, CA, July 28, 2011) – They’ve been killers, ghosts, homeless, prostitutes, prisoners and even murder victims – but it’s off the set of their famous soaps where the real drama begins.
They're leaving their kids at home for the first time ... Despite a couple of phone calls, and probably more we didn't see, Jenna does calm down and relax a bit, and by and large, Nadja is satisfied with her birthday.
Honestly, what 31-year-old cares that much about her birthday. A., Kelly Monaco is not a big fan of weddings, despite the fact that she's about to tie the knot on . Wouldn't you know it, things begin to change as she tries on that wedding dress.
But for Mo Farah it is just far away enough to provide a haven in which he can prepare for his second date with destiny in a week.
The softer side of these heartthrobs is also exposed as they interact with their families – one beauty meets her biological father for the very first time and another tearfully sends her brother off to the United States Army flight school.
All the while their goals are clear – to grow their careers and to keep their hearts and heads above water in Tinseltown – where it’s so very easy to drown.
Working together on set and spending time with each other in their down-time, they have formed substantial bonds and created a pseudo “soap family.” In the series we see them all begin a new chapter in their lives – some have left the soap world, some are doing film, some are focusing on family, and others are simply trying to determine what would be the best next move.
Romantic relationships are tested when one person’s career rockets forward and the others is stuck at “go.” Jealousies arise as actors attempt to jump from one soap to another, and arch rivals must find a way to coexist in this sudsy microcosm without ripping each other to shreds.
