TNA wrestlers Jessie Godderz and Tara (a/k/a Lisa Marie Varon) have joined the cast of the scripted drama "Tainted Dreams." The show is described as a scripted "soap within a soap," according to a press release issued by TNA on Tuesday.

"“Wrestling has evolved into an ‘action soap opera,’ combining athletic prowess with the on-going, serialized drama taking place in and out of the wrestling ring,” said Tainted Dreams creator Sonia Blangiardo. "There is a tremendous crossover audience between traditional soap operas and wrestling which creates a perfect fit for Jessie and Lisa Marie in our cast."

Powell's POV: The rest of the cast includes Dina Manzo of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" fame, and soap actors Alicia Minshew, Kelley Menighan Hensley, Walt Willey, Marnie Schulenburg, and Michael Lowry. The press release states that distribution details have not been finalized.
