I shared with you the tweet I saw last week about Bobbie Eakes joining the cast of Tainted Dreams.  I am happy to confirm it is true and it is happening now.  As a matter of fact,  here is a photo of Mx. Bobbie Eake on the set of Tainted Dreams with co-stars Meagan Robar and Grant Aleksander! 

 

I always enjoyed Ms. Eakes portrayal of "Krystal Carey" on All My Children.   Her character had depth and dimension that was always interesting.  I also love the sound of her singing voice.  I wonder if the folks at Tainted Dreams could work a song or two into the story.....?  You can read more about Bobbie Eakes and Tainted Dreams in this press release!   

NEW YORK CITY, July 30, 2013 – Emmy-nominated Bobbie Eakes has arrived in New York City and begins filming Tainted Dreams tonight. According to Tainted Dreams’ creator and executive producer, Sonia Blangiardo, “Eakes is playing ‘Courtney Parish,’ a television network’s Vice President of Daytime programming. She’s strong, powerful and well-respected until one split-second decision changes everything.” Blangiardo teases, “Eakes’ first scenes are actually night scenes on location with her onscreen husband, ‘Eddie’ played by former One Life to Live heartthrob James DePaiva.” 
 
Though best known for her roles in All My Children (“Krystal Carey”) and The Bold and the Beautiful (“Macy Alexander Sharpe”), Eakes has enjoyed a rich and varied career in the entertainment industry. Her TV credits include many guest star roles on prime-time dramas and sitcoms. Throughout the years, Bobbie has also worked as a television host. Her hosting credits include MTV, GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown and SOAPnet’s Live From the Red Carpet.
In the mid 80‘s, Bobbie auditioned for and won the job of lead singer in the all-girl rock band Big Trouble. This Epic Records’ band was created by television great Fred Silverman and produced by Grammy and Oscar winner Giorgio Moroder. The group recorded one self-titled CD and for Bobbie, appearing on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand was a highlight of the three years spent in the band.
In the early 90‘s, Bobbie and her Bold & Beautiful co-star Jeff Trachta recorded two CDs for European label Arcade Records. Their records achieved double platinum sales status and the duo toured and performed to thousands of fans across Europe.
In 2001, while signed to Sony Nashville, Bobbie recorded a duet with Country Music superstar Collin Raye entitled Tired of Loving This Way. While touring with Collin to promote the record, Bobbie had the honor of performing at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry.
Bobbie resides in Palm Springs, California with her husband of 21 years, actor and writer David Steen.
