Oh no!  Say it isn’t so.  Soap opera favorite Jack Wagner of The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital and Melrose Place, on tonight’s Results Show of Dancing with the Stars, was voted off!

Last night after an emotional and heart-tugging evening where the contestants revealed the most memorable year in their lives, and used it as inspiration in the ballroom dance competition, this just did not seem like he should have been the one to go!  After the end of the last night’s competition, Wagner ended up in the bottom three with singers, Gladys Knight and Gavin DeGraw!

But tonight, it was Jack who was sent packing! The actor handled his exit gracefully, wishing his competitors good luck before heading to the dance floor for his last dance with his partner, Anna Trebunskaya!

However on Monday night’s episode, Jack  story was extremely touching.  He picked as his most memorable year: 2011, when a woman approached him as he was about to go onstage at one of his concerts. who turned out to be his long-lost daughter.  Wagner revealed through his tears how he immediately accepted her into his family and how close they have grown.  Jack decided to dance to one of his own songs that he sang at the very same concert where he met her.

Now below,  watch Wagner tell his story and the other contestants in a night full of tears! Then, let us know what you think about Jack being voted off! And might we add, now that Jack is available, GH ….. how about bringing him back as Frisco Jones?

Jack, with your large…. FAN base from GH and Bold, including your co-worker’s you’ve worked with on these soaps, along with the work you’ve done in Prime Time soaps, I would have hoped you would have done better. That show isn’t always fair, BUT this season starting out was awesome, somebody had to go. And now so DO I, because you JUST came on Jimmy Kimmel, and I have to watch and see what you have to say for yourself. Thanks for having the guts to do it. Go Jack! And go back to Bold, and skip over GH.

I don’t watch ABC/D except for GH so sorry I couldn’t help. DWTS is way down in the ratings this year. But I think the execs like it that way. They want a reason to pull the plug on ABC television anyways!

I can’t believe he’s gone. I thought his fanbase was bigger. I know I was voting for him. Plus, I thought he was doing well dancing. I enjoyed it. Wish he could have stayed longer. Can’t believe he’s the second one eliminated. I think Gavin and others should have gone home before him.

I think JW did well with his dancing. Obviously he isn’t as popular with fans anymore. YES in the soap world he is, but the general public-NO.
His numbers were fine, he didn’t get the votes.

As far as GH goes, why did JW make a statement that if he has to go back to GH he will, he is owned by them?

Hi Debi, long time. Happy Spring. You’re right, he obviously isn’t as popular with fans of the General Public. Jack made the statement he made about going back to General Hospital, NOT because he is “owned by them” (GH) but because right now, he is contracted to abc/disney. He is prohibited from doing anything other than on abc/disney, so that’s why he said, ‘ GH can call if they want to. ‘

I think they have to sign a contract,so they own there ass for a short period of time ,heck Susan lucci was owned by abc/disney for decades I think she still is .I didnt watch but he did get voted off early . Thats To bad ,a few sights that I went to kept saying he was to old ,I gave them a piece of my mind,Hell,your never to OLD to dance.There were a few ladies that were a heck of a lot older then him and they did ok.Usually the soap stars do good keep in mind alot of… Read more »

Sorry Jack, I haven’t watched DWTS since the OLTL and AMC cancellation. Always thought that you were great as Frisco on GH and would like to see you back.

Concerning DWTS because I do not watch do they get paid a salary up front and is it a flat fee no matter if you get voted off or not? I know it sounds stupid but ABC,NBC &CBS are never on at our house in primetime I think my husband has the TV’s set to explode if they are on those stations.

not totally surprised he was voted off… just a week or two earilier than I thought. Jimmy Kimmel said Jack’s outfit that night looked like a gay match (flame gradiation on outfit). I think there are just so many really top notch dancers on this year, that you just have to go at this 110% right off the bat. He’s not a bad dancer, just not superb right out of the gate like many other others have been. I thought the first dance they did was a little plain, calm and others just came out **Bam!** oh well… now he’s… Read more »

Alicia Leigh Willis On Her Heavenly Return To GH: “What a Wonderful Experience Reminiscing With My Favorite Cast & Crew.”

Yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the surprise return of Alicia Leigh Willis shortly reprising her role of Courtney Matthews, as she escorts Mike (Max Gail) to heaven.

Willis was last seen on GH in 2015 as a spirit and created the role back in 2001.

The actress took to social media and shared:”A little clip of my surprise return on @generalhospitalabc What a wonderful experience reminiscing with my favorite cast & crew.”

Viewers know that as Mike succumbed to Alzheimer’s, he wanted the dignity of not dying in front of his son, Sonny (Maurice Benard), and to shield Sonny from witnessing his death.

But in the story, Mike did not pass on alone; as his daughter showed up to take him with her to the afterlife.

Check out Courtney’s post below.

What did you think of the moment having Courtney be there for Mike at the end of his life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Family Says Their Goodbyes in Emotional Episode Filled With Touching Performances

For anyone who has been watching the emotional Alzheimer’s storyline play out on General Hospital, Wednesday’s episode was a key moment in the storytelling and for the Corinthos family.  To say that the cast delivered in this episode is an understatement; everyone had their moments, and of course, chief among them, Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Mike’s (Max Gail) life is coming to an end as his body is shutting down from the disease.  Stella (Vernee Watson) comes to Mike’s room at Turning Woods and tells Sonny that Mike is waiting for permission to let go.  She explains to Sonny that Mike is torn between this world and the afterlife.   Stella helps Sonny prepare for the final moments of Mike’s life, dimming the lights, giving Sonny ice chips to put on his father’s lips, and for Sonny to put on some of Mike’s favorite music – jazz.   She also gets Mike a blanket because he is getting cold.  Then in a touching moment played to perfection by Vernee Watson, Stella says her own goodbye to Mike and hugs Sonny and tells him how grateful she was to know Mike.

Carly (Laura Wright) had been by Sonny’s side every step of the way in the final days of Mike’s life.  At one point in Mike’s room with Sonny, she has a dream where Mike tells her she is his daughter.  It was another heartbreaking moment – this time played beautifully by Laura Wright.  Earlier, Michael (Chad Duell) said goodbye to his grandfather and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) had also come to Turning Woods, as has Brando (Johnny Wactor) to be there for the end of Mike’s life and to support Sonny

Sonny tells Mike, (who can hear, but cannot truly respond as the disease continues to shut down his body), that he has made peace with what went down between them when he was a child.  He tells Mike, “I just want you to go in peace and go with love.”  Later, Sonny had a recollection seeing his father pray in the back of the church when he was a child, which sparked an idea for him.   Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny know that Mike wants to be forgiven for his sins.

Then in the tearjerker, Father Ramos arrives to bless Mike and cleanse him from all of his sins, as Sonny, Carly, Michael and Josslyn witness it.

Afterwards, Jason realizes that Mike probably does not want to die in front of Sonny and tells Sonny to take a break, but Sonny does not want to – so Jason whispers to Mike that he should not worry that he will take care of Sonny. The two hope Mike will meet up with Morgan in heaven.

At the end of the episode, alone with his father, Sonny tells Mike not to be afraid, or to worry about him, and then remembers the night Mike walked out on him and his mother when he was a kid.  He says he knows his father always loved him … maybe too much.  We fade to black.  Maurice Benard’s work was again outstanding throughout these moments, making Sonny’s life-long pain, and love for this father, palpable.

As someone who went through this horrible disease with his mother, I can say, that GH played the beats of the story to perfection, honoring those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and the family members they leave behind.

So, what did you think of this emotional episode of GH and the performances by the cast? Comment below.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Let’s just make this official as we tweeted about it last week when these scenes aired on Tuesday.  And let’s just say, that Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) could very well receive another Daytime Emmy nomination next year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, if these moments are part of her reel.  LoCicero was previously nominated in 2015 in this category.

Now on to that performance that had everyone a-buzz on social media after it aired.  In the scenes, Robert (Tristan Rogers) has worked his WSB contacts to get Olivia to Geneva to secretly see her son, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), who is suffering from severe trauma and PTSD and is at this facility for treatment.  After traveling half way around the world to get there, with anticipation and wanting to hold her son and be there for him – when she arrives the doctor (Christopher Cousins) tells Dante his mother is here to see him, but Dante refuses to let that happen.

When the doctor tells Olivia that Dante will not open the door to his room to talk to his mom and come face-to-face with her, she goes into momma bear mode, releasing such heartache and anguish, just wanting to see Dante, but she is met with a steely shut door instead.  But as viewers saw, the scenes were made all the more poignant by the split screen; where Dante is on the other side of the door – heartbroken hearing his mother’s cries.  Dominic Zamprogna, who is always stellar, was also moving in these moments.

However, it was LoCicero’s ability to call up such deep rooted love and pain for her child, that any parent could relate to, which broke our hearts, rang so true, and showcased Lisa.

Later in the week, we also see how Liv was there for Robert in return  – and the two are now off on a mission of their own to find Holly (if she is indeed very much alive) which is sure to put a further wedge in her marriage to Ned (Wally Kurth).  That begs the questions, too.  How would you feel about a Robert and Olivia pairing…or would you be rooting for Olivia and Ned to work through their issues?

Through it all, it was Lisa LoCicero who grabbed our attention, brought out the hankies for all of us, and truly compelled the audience.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Lisa’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Lisa in these scenes with Dominic? In case you missed them, you can check them out below, then share your thoughts in the comment section.
