Terri Ivens spilled the juicy news about joining the all-star cast of Tainted Dreams
to Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens, and shortly after, longtime friends and
former AMC cast mates, Ivens and Alicia Minshew took to Twitter in the following
When asked about the Twitter exchange, Blangiardo replied, “Tainted Dreams
explores what goes on after the director says, ‘Cut,’ and that includes every thing
from the giggling, inside jokes among best pals to full-blown backstage
Machiavellian mayhem and everything in between. Reuniting so many former
cast mates brings another layer of realism to the behind-the-scenes aura we are
trying to recreate with Tainted Dreams.”
According to Blangiardo, “Ivens will play the role of ‘Kassandra Bentley,’ an inyour-
face, manipulative actress who stars in Tainted Dreams’ soap within the
soap, Painted Dreams. Minshew will play ‘Angelica Caruso,’ Painted Dreams’
senior producer who is stuck trying to deal with all the backstage chaos actors
like Iven’s ‘Kassandra’ leave in their wake.”
Actor, author, producer and radio host, Terri Ivens is still best known for
her portrayal of “Simone Torres” on ABC's daytime drama All My Children, but
she has been an entertainment professional since the age of 10. As a teen, she
worked with Matthew Perry on FOX's Boys Will Be Boys, Neil Patrick Harris on
ABC's Doogie Howser M.D., Jennifer Love Hewitt on ABC's Byrds of Paradise
and Mariel Hemingway on ABC's Civil Wars. She also had pilot spin-offs for
Roseanne, Baywatch and Married with Children.
Film credits for Ivens include Chicks Dig Gay Guys, Roger Corman's
Piranhaconda, Untold, Marked for Death, Trancers 4 & 5 and Jimmy Hollywood.
Additionally, she serves as co-producer of the upcoming film Borrowed Moments
starring Brian Krause and Vanessa Marcil.

finished writing two books for a tween series.
