Can GH's Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy Survive Tonight's Double Elimination On DWTS All-Stars?

Courtesy/ABC

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… Read more »

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.

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.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
