Bobbie Eakes (ex-Krystal, AMC; ex-Macy, B&B) has joined the cast of web soap TAINTED DREAMS in the role of network executive Courtney, the part previously slated to be filled by Kassie DePaiva (Blair, OLTL). The character is married to cop Eddy, played by DePaiva's real-life husband, James DePaiva (ex-Max, OLTL). "It's kind of like keeping it in the family because Kassie and I are like sisters," Eakes says. "It's really fun and I'm excited to get started!"
