Tonight is a nail-biter for all of the remaining couples who have given their all on the hit ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars.   Last night, General Hospital fan favorite Kelly Monaco (Kelly Monaco) took to the floor with her dance partner, Val Chemerkovskiy to perform the Viennese waltz, and later in the night returned to the floor with Val and dancer, Louis Van Amstel for a trio dance performance.

After performing her two routines Monaco spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth where she admitted, “I worked really hard for the Viennese waltz, and I think I improved tremendously from when we started on Tuesday to tonight. I’m satisfied with my performance.”

Kelly paid a special nod to all of her fans who have been instrumental to keeping her and Val in the running thus far for the Mirror Ball Trophy. “I know that fans are supporting us as well.  If they could be in the audience every week, they would. I feel that. I know that stepping out on the floor. When I see those cameras pass by I see all their faces. I know a lot of their faces and I interact with them on Twitter and whatever social media outlets there are. I feel like I’m looking at all their faces when I’m out there.”

At the end of the night’s competition, which combined the scores from last week and last night, Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovoloni are at the top of the leaderboard with a total of 99 points, while Kirstie Alley and Max Chermkovskiy are at the bottom with 79.  But as has been proven week after week, having the highest or lowest total means nothing if the public does not turn out to vote to keep their couple in the running.

So soapers, who do you think will be sent home in tonight’s double elimination on the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Results Show? Let us know!

she has been great and the Judges have been very critical of her the whole season…………she will fair well because she truly is a star…………outside of Kirstie and Giles……………the true stars always shine the best because they have no prior training in dance.

I totally agree Sal. The judges are so darn hard on Val and Kelly, and it is so blatently obvious. They speak nicely to them and compliment their performance, then they proceed to give them scores that do not reflect the performance. Am I a fan of Kelly and Val – yes, but am I blinded by that – no, I rate the couples based on their performances, not on who is my favorite. Tony and Melissa blew it out of the water last night, and deserve that top spot, and she also does not have any prior dance or gymnastic experience, so kudos to them as well. Is Kirstie in the league of the others – no, but I give her so much credit for keeping up with them at her age, etc. I wish everyone the best of luck, but my fingers are crossed for Val and Kelly who deserve to stay for sure.

Emmit and Kirsty need to go. I like both, but Emmit clearly had lost his spark from season 3 and Kirsty just isn’t as good as the others.

Kelly did a good job yesterday. I agreed with both her scores. Loved that she chose Louis as the 3rd dancer. He’s awesome.

totally agree about Emmit and Kirstie – I like both of them as people and Emmitt is good but Kirstie is basically there because of her fans/comic relief. The rest of the group are just awesome though… I have a feeling Melissa Rycroft may take it all or Shawn Johnson.

I voted. And voted. And voted! Kelly really is GOOD – and deserves to be there! I don’t feel connected AT ALL to Emmit or Apolo. Kirstie is not as good – but she makes me laugh out load every week! I want a Kelly, Gilles & Melissa Final!

I voted for you Kelly!!! as many times as I was allowed on both my phones!! Hope she makes it too the finals…I think she is doing great for not being a trained dancer…!!! Melissa is a trained dancer so of course these routines are easier for her..jmo..

Kirstie really needs to go…should have gone weeks ago!
Apolo is the next lowest and should go, but I’d rather Emmitt go before him.
Hopefully the fans will keep Kelly and Val. They are tied for third, but that doesn’t mean much as we have seen in previous weeks.

I wish Kelly the best of everything!!!! I hope she comes out being a winner!

I voted for Kelly! KELLY IS GREAT!

So happy Kelly and Val made it through, as they so deserved too. Sorry to see Gilles go, as imo, he did not deserve to go either. Looking forward to next week. Good Luck Kelly and Val.

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
