Corbin Bleu is one of the favorites to take the Mirror Ball Trophy in this season’s highly competitive season 17 of the hit ABC ballroom dance competition, Dancing with the Stars!  And on tonight’s all-new episode, the One Life to Live and High School Musical star is set to dance the Paso Doble with his partner, Karina Smirnoff.

In Bleu’s new blog entry on his DWTS weekly experience for AccessHollywood.com, Corbin reveals, he is going shirtless for the first time during the competition and how Karina and he, worked to make their “Paso” quite fiery!

Corbin related about the musical choice which was switched up during this the rehearsal process: “As I listened to it, I thought it would be cool if in this dance we were in a fight. As always, Karina ran with it and turned it into an incredible piece! There’s even a moment where she slaps me in the dance! At first, we were just faking it, but I told her she should really do it to play up the anger. As intense as she is, she’s still a sweetheart and it took her a while to come to terms with actually striking me. She eventually got over it though and in the heat of the moment I think it makes for great theatre!

This dance will also be the first time I’m going shirtless! I usually go to the gym on top of dance rehearsals, but this week my trainer Chad Landers really cracked the whip to get me ready! I’m proud to say working out is a huge part of my lifestyle.  I’ve been training with him since I was 18 and over the years, my body has truly transformed. The stamina alone is really helping me get through this rigorous dancing schedule.”

So looking forward to a shirtless Corbin pulling out all the stops doing the Paso Doble tonight? Are you #TeamCorbin, or do you have your other favorites?  Comment below!

All this is great, but why no news about OLTL or AMC coming back or in production?

IMO PP should grow up and an get on with producing OLTL. Forget the lawsuit and just make the show. I don’t get why they can’t, or won’t. Seems lame.

Yes ABC screwed PP but now PP is screwing over the fans and themselves. I read the court papers and IMO I can’t see anyone taking this lawsuit seriously.

Soaps kill off and bring back characters all the time. Major characters like Nora, Todd, Patrick, Mitch to name a few. These were 2 minor characters. PP is asking for a jury trial. We all know how long those take and ABC-Disney has more attorneys than PP has employees. PP will be out of business before this comes to trial. I love OLTL, am a long time fan and have never much liked ABC or Disney, but if it were me, I’d throw the case out of court on grounds. just an opinion. 😉

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV! Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
