Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

The POP Channel’s got a hot list of shows, including the latest reality series Queens of Drama where six former soap actresses join forces to try and get a new dramatic series picked up by top television executives in the industry. The cast is followed during the course of their daily lives, and are filmed during the making of the show. Soap divas Hunter Tylo ( All My Children), Chrystee Pharris (Passions), Crystal Hunt ( One Life to Live), Lindsay Hartley (Passions), Vanessa Marcil (General Hospital ) and Donna Mills (Knott’s Landing) make up the cast.

A brief rundown is that the former soap stars write a dramatic series for television, and film the show during the script writing and rehearsal process, all the way to pitching stage. Crystal Hunt is the creator and producer of the show. Hunt was formerly the steamy character Stacy Morasco on the soap, One Life to Live. You probably remember her as Gigi’s sister from Vegas who followed her to Llandview. Morasco’s occupation on the show was a stripper and she was smitten with the ruggedly handsome Rex Balsom. During the course of her stay in Llandview, Stacey became pregnant with another man’s child (Oliver Fish), but wasn’t interested in him. The young woman instead, pretended to be carrying Balsom’s baby, but later the pregnancy ended in miscarriage anyway.

TV.com says talented actress Crystal Hunt began gained the confidence that it took to get into acting, through her days performing in beauty pageants. She was a commercial actress before she landed her breakout role in Problem Child 2. As a teen she was cast in a more prominent part as Jill Overton, romantic interest of Zac Efron, in the movie The Derby Stallion. Another stint on the silver screen included her role as Dinky alongside Amanda Bynes in the movie Sydney White. Hunt’s expanded her repertoire as she grew her on-set presence, and she was offered the part of Lizzie Spaulding on the daytime TV soap Guiding Light. Later she was asked to play Stacy Morasco on the show One Life to Live.

Outside of the Queens of Drama show, her Facebook makes it known Crystal is a philanthropist and volunteers her time to raise awareness for animal rights and pet adoption. Hunt helps coordinate fundraising events for the Animal Haven Shelter in Soho to try to get families and individuals to adopt formerly abused animals.  Crystal has been known to pursue photography, and has landed her first major film role in Magic Mike XXL.
